Carols Daughter's Product Junkie Rehab Commercial - Dismantling Product Closets, One Conditioner at a Time.

Hey everyone!

I'm sure I'm not alone claiming the title "Recovering Product Junkie" - lol And with the upcoming Black Friday sales around the corner it will be a struggle for me to hold on to that title - but I'm going to remain strong and only replenish things that I am totally out of. Well at least that's the plan :)

Carol's Daughter in conjunction with Special Boy Films produced a funny but eye -opening Product Junkie Rehab Commercial. Check it out below. But first here is the synopsis...

"It’s dimly lit, overwhelming, and often dangerous. Sometimes it grows exponentially, and other times it is forgotten. 

You know that closet--the one with the hair cream you bought two years ago on a whim? It’s still there, along with 40 other products. 

Welcome to the life of a hair product junky. It may be hard to say goodbye to that mountain of conditioners, but finally, we have the solution to your expensive addiction.

Enter the world of Carol’s Daughter’s Product Junky Rehab, where women come and face their hair product obsessions with a team of concerned consultants. 

Directed and produced by Special Boy Films, Product Junky Rehab is a hilarious look into the never-ending pile up of beauty products that many of us accumulate over the years and how we can finally learn to let go. 

Viewers are sure to get a good laugh as they see themselves in many of these women."

Lol at the Inkblots and that weird animal in the PJ stash!

SheaMoisture Cosmetics

Hey everybody!

I'm sure by now you all know that cosmetics have now been added to the Shea Moisture product line.

The Shea Moisture cosmetic line consists of foundations, color correcting concealer, lip gloss, lip exfoliator, wet/dry eye shadow, mineral blush, lip/cheek blush and pressed powder. These all come in a variety of shades suitable for all cultures.

In the same vein as the Shea Moisture hair product line, the new cosmetic line is made with healthy ingredients. The line is preservative and paraben-free. Like all Shea Moisture products, the cosmetic line can be purchased at Target.

I had the opportunity to try the Shea Moisture Lip Gloss and the Shea Moisture Lip Exfoliator. First off, I loved the unique wooden tubes that both the gloss and exfoliator are packaged in. They are super cute!

The Shea Moisture Lip Exfoliator worked wonderfully to exfoliate and moisturize my lips. It was very easy to apply and left my lips feeling silky smooth. I just leave the exfoliator on for a few moments then as per the directions, wipe it off with a damp cloth.

I followed the lip exfoliator with the Shea Moisture Lip Gloss in the color Caroline. Again, the lip gloss was very easy to apply and a little went a long way. Thanks to the exfoliator, it glided smoothly onto my lips.

The lip gloss feels very light and not sticky/gummy and leaves a nice sheer sheen that lasted for hours - I reapplied only once during the day after I ate lunch.

I highly recommend both the Shea Moisture lip exfoliator (which will be in heavy rotation during the upcoming fall/winter season) and the lip gloss for those who are looking for great moisturizing, conditioning and paraben-free products.

Overall, I give both products 5-stars and will definitely purchase them again. I am also eager to try more colors and other items in the Shea Moisture line.
