Follow up! Target Goodies: Skin Renew & John Frida Go Blonder

Hey Guys! I told you 10 days ago about two things I picked up at Target. Here is the follow up..my thoughts and feelings about these products as I've been using them. And, this time... I LOVE THEM BOTH!

The Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-dark circle roller with a tint (concealer).  I love this product. I got it because I wanted an eye treatment/concealer that's fast and easy and I can carry in my purse. I like this one because it is very cooling. The silver roller ball feels so nice and icy underneath your eye an it's an instant brightener. The concealer in it is a light shade and I'm about an NC20 at MAC. It works perfectly with my skin. I think this concealer/brightener  would be great for fair to medium skin tones since it's going to help brighten the undereye. The concealer is also very light so it's not cakey. ***One thing to be mindful of; when I get this really close to my eye , my eye starts to water a little bit...not too bad, but a little, so don't use too much and if you are very sensitive be mindful. ( I am sensitive though, and it is not to bad...just something to be aware of.) :)

 

Next, the John Frida Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray. On a grading scale I'd give this product a B+. Here's why...The greatest thing is that for blondes who can't go into the salon every 4 weeks to get their hair touched up it helps to lighten the roots. I have noticed that for me with just 3 uses of this spray my hair looks blonder and my roots blend more. I LOVE this because I don't like the look of dark roots and since I can't afford always getting my hair touched up it's a cheap and easy fix.

The only negative about this product is that it lightens the hair but almost to a little bit more of a yellowish tint (a little brassy). So, what I've been doing is using my purple shampoo in between uses of this product. This helps to brighten the hair a little bit more and leave it less brassy and yellow. I did do a review of a purple shampoo here: http://lovelo.wordpress.com/2011/03/08/shimmering-blonde-highlights-generic-is-just-as-good/.

Overall, I would buy this product again.

Here is a video I've really been enjoying today. It's by beauty vlogger Dulce Candy called "How to Shop at a Thrift Store". The reason I love this video is because she gives tips on shopping at a thrift store. And, she shows what she bought on a recent trip. The handbags and clutches she found are to DIE for...and it totally puts me in the mood to go bargain hunting!!!

Enjoy.. I did! [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmzplwpjCWI]

Target Goodies: Skin Renew & John Frida Go Blonder

Hi Guys! A few days ago I went to Target after work. I absolutely love Target and can always find so many good things to buy or look at.

I went there for a specific purpose. I had seen two products on beauty guru reviews that are NEW and looked interesting to me.

The first is the Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Roller (with a tint).

This product comes non-tinted as well and when I saw the one with concealer I knew I had to try this one! It's an eye treatment for tired puffy eyes plus it has concealer that will lighten dark circles under the eye. A perfect pick me up!

So, I've been using this the last two days and I'm SO impressed. I used it after work one day when my eyes felt tired and it instantly brightened them and the concealer lightened any dark pigment under the eye. It was just like I had thought... an instant little pick me up! Now, I use it right away in the morning when I'm still kinda tired...and also one throughout the day if I need a little extra something. I will probably talk about this again or do another review. I love it so far!

The second product I picked up was the: John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Spray. And, I have a confession to make. This was sold out in my first Target trip. I went to Ulta the very next day and they were sold out too. So, last night, I went to Target (a different one) and they had two left!!! I was so excited to finally find it because I have heard that this is great for dark roots...as your blonde hair grows out. I have not tried it yet. But, I will let you know my thoughts once I have an opinion.

Have a great Monday!!

Love,

Lauren
