Hair and Nail Product Haul

This past week I made a trip to the beauty supply store with my mom to pick up some much-needed goodies. The woman at the store was super generous and gave us some great samples too! I'll go ahead and get into what I got for myself. 

Essie First Timer from Resort Collection 2013

Essie First Timer- This green, from the Essie Resort Collection 2013, is such a unique color.

Essie In The Cab-ana from Resort Collection 2013

Essie In The Cab-ana- I've been lusting after this color ever since I began seeing so many pictures of how cute it looks on anyone wearing it!

Essie Under Where from Resort Collection 2013

Essie Under Where?- I've been wanting a lavender polish for a while (see my Nail Polish Wishlist) and I finally found one that I couldn't resist.

Essie Good To Go Top Coat

Essie Good To Go Top Coat- As soon as I heard Kendra C mention this in her Products I've Used Up video I knew it was going on my list! I can't wait to try this out for Monday's NOTD post. 

I picked these up at the drugstore:

Harmon Strengthening Nail Polish Remover and CVS Cotton Rounds
Harmon Strengthening Nail Polish Remover- I'm down to my last drop of nail polish remover so I needed to pick more up. This says it's strengthening, so hopefully that means it wont be as damaging to my nails as other removers. We shall see. 

CVS Cotton Rounds- Some how I managed to use a pack of cotton rounds and a bottle of polish remover at the same rate. I couldn't do that again if I tried.


 Kenra Blow-Dry Spray

Kenra Blow-Dry Spray- This is a thermal protecting spray that smells amazing. I like to use it when heat styling my hair (with a blow dryer or straightener)- I even like to use it when I let my hair air dry.


L'Oreal VoluMetry Shampoo and Conditioner

L'Oreal VoluMetry Shampoo and Conditioner (Sample Packs)- I've already tried (and reviewed) this shampoo and conditioner, and I love it! I'll be purchasing the full size versions, but I first need to use up some of my other shampoo.

Pureology Purify Shampoo and Pureology Color Stylist Root Lift

Pureology Purify Shampoo- This shampoo helps to eliminate build-up styling products can leave on the hair. I've used Pureology shampoo and conditioner in the past (I think Hydrate) and it was great, so I expect nothing less from this one.

Pureology Color Stylist Root Lift- I love styling my hair with mousse so I'll be testing this out soon. 

Redken Control Addict 28 and Redken Powder Refresh 01
Redken Control Addict 28- This is an extra high-hold hairspray. I'll probably keep this in my second bathroom for when my mom's in town- she wears hairspray regularly, and is a big fan of Redken.

Redken Powder Refresh 01- I'm excited to try this new product, a dry shampoo. Also, the travel size version is perfect for touch ups during hot summer days when hair can look... eh.

Check back on Monday for a Nail Of The Day post; I'll be using one of my new polishes :) Also, be sure to subscribe/ follow my blog so you don't miss out on future posts and reviews!
