Harry Josh Pro Tools 2000 Pro Dryer, An In-Depth Review.

 

If you’re looking for the best hair dryer in the market, well, look no further because Harry Josh’s Pro Dryer indeed lived up to its hype. Endorsed by many celebrities and fashionistas, dubbed as the Rolls Royce of all hair dryers, and Allure’s best of beauty winner 2014, this hair dryer packs a punch!

Let’s take a closer look:

With a mint green color and velvety texture, this hair dryer stands out, not only does it feel good in the hand, it really has that ergonomic feel. The size of the hair dryer is perfect for petite women with small hands and regular sized women as well. You really don’t need to have a foldable feature on this dryer as it is small and light enough on your hands, which makes hair drying a lot easier, and more practical for traveling.

The features:

This hair dryer has an impressive 2000-hour motor life and reduces energy consumption by 70 percent. Hand-made in France with 1875 Watts and 125 Volts. Also comes with a 2 year warranty included with purchase.

I personally liked the 9 ft. cord that comes with this hair dryer, it’s easier to move
around while hair drying, specially if you have very long hair.

There’s 3 switches and 1 blue botton to learn here, the 3 switches are located in the back or outer part and the only blue button is located on the inner part of the hairdryer, which is for cold shots. And by cold shots, I mean it really does throw cold air. Really helpful to reduce static and seal in your hairstyle.

On the 3 swtiches, the first one from the top is the red colored-area switch, to adjust heat.
The second one is the speed and on/off button. You basically have to switch left and right for speed adjustment, and if you leave the switch in the middle, the hair dryer will either turn on or off.
The last switch is for ionic. What does it do? Ionic technology creates negative ions that neutralizes you hairs’ positive charge to create that sleek smooth finish, and it also hastens the drying time. the rule is: if you want sleek straight hair, turn the ionic on, if you want volume or “poofy” hair, turn the ionic off. Harry Josh recommends that if you have fine hair, just turn the ionic off to have some volume, and the opposite goes for people with thick hair.
I personally like the sleek, smooth, long, and superfine hairstyle, so I just keep the ionic on. Whichever works for you.

The Result: This is a very luxurious hair dryer that will live up to its promise. It is easy to carry, easy to use and cuts my hair drying time in half. A 5 dollar hair dryer cannot compare to this thing, and if you are worried about showering because you don’t really feel like using your old hair dryer, as it takes time to dry, well, I’d say this is the answer to your prayers. This hair dryer can even eliminate the need for flat irons, if you know how to use it well. It really makes your hair beeyootiful.

 

Things to consider:

If you have very long hair, you may have to spend more time drying. The hair dryer comes at a hefty price, available here. Now, here’s an advice, if you have a lot of patience and wants to save money, do not buy the hair dryer at its full price, sign up for Dermstore’s newsletter to get updates on their products, and then sign up for Blush.com (another company owned related to Dermstore) to get 10% off just for signing up, save the email and hold on to it. Now, wait for Dermstore’s newsletter in the mail for some product promos. From time to time, Dermstore lowers Harry Josh Hair Pro Tools Hair Dryer price. Then it’s time to buy it plus you add the 10% off code from Blush.com.

Right now, Dermstore offers Harry Josh Pro Tools Perfect Holiday Blowout Set with free samples. It includes the coveted Harry Josh Hair Dryer with accessories, a $405 value that costs a lot cheaper than buying the hair dryer alone. Plus dermstore gives you free samples.

Bath & Body Works Winter Haul

bathbag

 

It’s that time of the year to buy the holiday/winter collection of Bath and Body Works! They released their usual “Holiday Traditions” products plus another one called “A Thousand Wishes”. There are also some new stuff from their Signature Collections. Who doesn’t love Bath & Body Works? No one. They’re cheap, (you need to have their coupon) smells good, has Shea butter for best skin moisturization, and they come in different scents!

 

From their “A Thousand Wishes” Line:

thousandwishes

 

Smells like: very sweet wine (amaretto), sometimes smells like caramelized strawberry. I can smell some peony flower as undertone. Very strong and very sweet.

From their “Signature” Line:

velvetsugar

Smells like: Plum and strawberries mixed with tons of sugar. Thus probably the name Velvet Sugar. A little overpowering, yet smells very delicious. Very cake-ish smell.

amberblush

Smells like: Bubblegum with some raspberry. There’s also a slight scent of gardenia. A light scent, and not overpowering or sickly sweet.

wildmadagascarvanilla

Smells like: Slightly burned vanilla with pear. Light scent, easy on the senses, and doesn’t smell like food. It also has a mild sandalwood tone.

From their “Holiday Traditions” Line:

winterapple

Smells like: freshly-picked apples with a bit of cinnamon, thus the soapy smell. I also noticed a rose petal scent and slight orange. Very fresh and light.

sugarplum

Smells like: Strong plum with orchid. Very very strong musky smell. Quite sweet and overpowering, almost like a man’s perfume, yet there’s some food-like scent to it. Also heavy on citrus.

photo-3

Smells like: Peppermint candy, but once applied, it will take a very interesting turn. It does not only smells like menthol, but you can feel the menthol all over your body. It’s like a more fragrant version of icy hot or salonpas. Basically, like a cooling muscle pain reliever. Imagine the feeling of getting out from an air-conditioned place to a non air-conditioned area. That’s exactly how this body cream feels. My kind of product. I’m all about versatility 🙂

 

VERDICT: Just buy it! they’re cheap and as I said before, they have different scents for you to choose. They’re not as boring as your everyday drugstore or grocery products. They always have promos and if you subscribe to their email, they’ll send you coupons, they’ll even send you some in the mail. For an $80 value, you could pay only half, and you could get another full size or travel size for free. They even have buy 3 take 3 promos, apart from the coupons you’re getting. With all these, you get a half year of bath & body works supplies. Ain’t that a deal?

widbag

 

Gucci just launched its newest make-up line, and with that comes the very tempting shades of two kinds of lipstick. According to Gucci’s website, the audacious color-intense lipstick shades are retro-inspired with a modern feel. It grips the lips for bold, saturated color. While the luxurious moisture-rich lipstick delivers bold color with an opulent finish. Enriched with a distinctive blend of oils, the formula glides on effortlessly and moisturizes the lips. 

 


 

 

 

Here’s part 1 of the Red shade from the latest Gucci lipstick line.

 

 

gucci wild amarena moisture intense

 

Gucci Luxurious Moisture-Rich in Wild Amarena. True to what Gucci said, this formula glides on easily. Red with a hint of pink. Looks pure red on the outside, but when applied, it is really dark and intense red pink color. Quite Vampy.

 

 

 

gucci moisture rich cerise lipstick

 

Gucci Audacious Color-Intense in Cerise. Red with a mix of brown. Quite light, could be good for everyday use. Safe color to wear on daylight, not very scandalous, lol. Ideal for tanned skin who wants an everyday red.

 

 

 

gucci moisture rich seduction lipstick

 

Gucci Luxurious Moisture-Rich in Seduction. Color is in very dark, bloody red. Probably the perfect red among the three, but very very dark, rich and just soo bold. Good for night wear.

 

 

The Swatches:

 

 

gucci lipstick swatches cerise wild amarena seduction

 

All three of them. Notice that Cerise is the lightest color, may be hard to tell in the picture. It is also my preferred color among the three. It’s just easy to wear.  Wild Amarena is definitely the darkest of them all, and Seduction follows the same spectrum as Wild Amarena. You almost cannot tell the difference between the two.

VERDICT: Love it! if you have some money to spare, Buy them here! they are really gorgeous in reality. Every woman needs a good high-end lipstick in her favorite color. This one’s a bet.
