Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream

FabFitFun Summer 2019

fabfitfun summer box

 

Hi guys! I am back from another trip. My apologies for some delays in my posts. I’ve been so busy lately and had to take care of a lot of stuff. For today’s post, I would like to share with you the products I received for this Summer’s FabFitFun Box. As always, this season’s box is full of stuff I can use, even though there’s a couple of items that I already own, but they’re those items that I have always enjoyed using. I swear, I tried to make a decent flatlay for you all, but my cat Frodo (Dodo) just won’t let me. He pretty much photobombed most of my shots and I thought it might be fun for you all to see. I must let you know that this cat seems to work at the Department of Customs (lol) because he feels the need to inspect everything that gets inside the house, haha! Nothing goes through until he gets to sniff each and every item and gives his stamp of approval.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream review

 

Sol De Janeiro

 

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (mini/2.5 oz: 20 USD, 8.1 oz: 45 USD) – Reviewed further here. This is one of my favorite body creams ever. The smell can be quite strong but it’s nice and quite yummy. I love the shimmer that is incorporated in this cream.

 

Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel (mini/3 oz: 10 USD, 13 oz: 25 USD) – This smells like the Bum Bum Cream and it’s a creamy shower gel that foams really well.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream (4 oz: 28 USD, 8 oz: 38 USD) – This has always been my fave when it comes to treating my hair against frizz. I also love its scent and the fact that it doesn’t weigh my hair down. I wouldn’t mind receiving this all the time in my Fabfitfun box.

 

Invisibobble Original Duo Pack (16 USD) – This is my fave hair tie especially when I’m working out. It provides a strong grip for just about any activity you might be doing, yet it doesn’t leave any folds and traces on the hair strands.

Jennifer Zeuner Star Double Necklace (50 USD value) – Such a dainty minimalist necklace that goes with everything. I like how subtle it looks yet it also looks elegant.

 

Grace & Stella Rose Facial Spray

 

Generation Clay Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask (39 USD) – I like this violet-ish clay mask. It takes a little while to set and dry on the face but it does purify the pores and take out excess oil.

 

Grace & Stella Rose Facial Spray (25.95 USD) – This is a really nice facial spray to use everyday. It’s great as a facial hydrator or to soften harsh makeup, and even to set it. A definite must-have.

 

Whish Exfoliating Foot Mask (32 USD) – This foot mask works really well in moisturizing the feet because it has a softening effect. It does have a somewhat strong coconut and verbena mix scent.

 

Coola Organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Sunscreen Spray (1.7 oz: 36 US) – I have mixed feelings about this makeup setting spray. It leaves a white powdery substance on the face and it sticks to my hair right after each and every spray. I’m not sure if this is such a good idea for being a setting spray at all.

 

Summer & Rose Navy Diamond Tote

 

Summer & Rose Navy Diamond Tote (50 USD) – This summer-ready comfy tote can carry just about anything. It’s perfect for any picnic and it’s 100% cotton. I love its strong yet comfy handles.

Oh, what an interesting Summer box to play with. What do you think of this season’s box? Did you like it?

 

Sephora Play! June 2018

sephora play june 2018

 

Hello You! It’s about time for this month’s Sephora Play! Hmmm, I have mixed feelings about this June’s box contents because a lot of the stuff I got seemed way too familiar, except for one. It’s kind of annoying because I seem to keep getting the same stuff over and over again, and I think I’ll probably unsubscribe from this box pretty soon. However, I’d like to give it a few more chances and I’ll let you guys know whether I’ll actually say “Bye Felicia” to Sephora Play. But anyways, here are the stuff I got this month and check out what I think about them.

 

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Queen B

 

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Queen B (0.4 oz: $21) – Swatches HERE. This is one of my most favorite liquid matte lipsticks ever because the shade range are so pretty and the formula is not too drying compared to most matte liquid lipsticks. My favorite shades are Queen B and Sell Out. I still use this lipstick even nowadays and I’m still crazy about it.

 

Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips (1.69-6.7 oz: $9.50-$26) – If you’re looking for that all-around makeup remover that can do the task of removing all kinds of stubborn makeup even down to the waterproof ones, plus the fact that it’s very gentle to use around the eyes, well this original and cult-classic favorite from Clinique will never let you down. I like keeping some travel versions of this remover because it’s very useful to have. Also, right now I’m using the Balm version of this, and it’s really great (reviewed HERE).

 

Cover Fx Perfect Setting Powder in Light Translucent (0.14-0.35 oz: $14 – $35) – This is a newness for me, and I seem to really love this talc-free loose setting powder. I’ve only used this for a couple of times and I have to test and investigate this powder more. So far, my initial impressions are really positive. This powder seems to really work well with baking and it’s not ghosting on me, lol. It very fine-milled and so fluffy and it seems to control the annoying oiliness that normally seeps through my makeup over time.

 

Marajó Nourishing Cleansing Crème

 

Marajó Nourishing Cleansing Crème (8.5 oz: $29) & Deep Treatment Butter (5.3 oz: $29) – I already received this in my March 2018 Box (HERE). I never liked this before and I still don’t like this now. This makes my hair very oily even after washing as if I had not washed it at all. I also didn’t like the smell and texture. For the price, there are better options out there.

 

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (2.5-8.1 oz: $20-$45) – I’ve been using this body cream a lot and had taken a break from it for a while, right now I’m on the Açai Body Power (further reviewed HERE). This cream has a nice sweet Vanilla scent and the texture is so creamy and so hydrating on the skin. It’s one of my most beloved creams (see the rest HERE) and it doesn’t disappoint. Also, the shimmer of this cream is amazing and it makes the skin look radiant and Summer-ready.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream (4-8 oz: $28-$38) – I don’t use a lot of drama to my hair. Just a nice shampoo and conditioner will usually do the job, and perhaps with the help of an effective heat protectant from time to time whenever I feel like blow-drying it, which I don’t do much often these days. But if you ask me what’s my favorite styling product, I would say that it would have to be this No Frizz Nourishing Cream from Living Proof. I always keep a tube of this on my bathroom shelf, and it works like a charm. It tames frizzies, flyaways, and it makes the hair look shiny.

So, as I’ve said before, I’ll let you know if I’m actually going to stop subscribing to Sephora Play. I’m thinking of giving this subscription a few more tries, but maybe not. It depends. There’s another subscription box I have in mind and it seems really promising. A friend of mine talked to me about it and had shown me her box, and guess what? I was really smitten. So stay tuned and will update you guys soon. Ciao!

 

 

Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner & Nourishing Styling Cream Review

Whenever it’s summer it’s always a good idea to have a haircare that controls frizz and tames those annoying flyaways. I’ve always been a fan of Kerastase Fluidealiste Smooth-in-Motion products and the Serum Oleo-Relax (reviewed HERE), those really seem to handle my frizz quite well, however, I wanted to venture into something easier to find and much more affordable. The Living Proof brand of haircare seems to be promising, and today, I’m reviewing their No Frizz lines.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream review

 

This line of No Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner, and Nourishing Styling Cream by Living Proof is meant to keep frizz at bay. They’re sulfate-free and is designed to block the humidity weightlessly. What I like about these products is that they come in different sizes so that you can try them and see if they work for the kind of hair that you have. I purchased the small sizes to see if these products really control my frizz as what it claimed to be.

 

My hair has always been on the straight side, but not necessarily fine. It’s pretty much thick and it has a tendency to get wavy. My biggest struggles are the flyaways and baby hairs that are so annoying especially during the summer, or whenever there’s humidity. Most of the time, if I’m at home, it tends to behave fairly well, but whenever I’m outside, it rebels and every strand seems to be standing up like I’ve been electrocuted, Haha! True, that’s why I always seek the help of a heating tool somehow. But it can’t always be healthy, you know, so I resort into creams, leave-ons, oils, etc… Some works, while some don’t

 

Living Proof No Frizz Conditioner review

 

The Living Proof No “Frizz” line seems like something I could definitely use, and when I first got them, I didn’t try them all together and I find that my hair was still kinda frizzy, but using them together sort of made a difference. These didn’t weigh my hair down, which is thank God, but you really need to do the 3-step process in order to get the result. While I can’t speak for others who have coarser hair than mine, I definitely think that if your hair is fine to wavy with frizz, then this could work for you, even on a hot summer day.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner & Nourishing Styling Cream Review

 

Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo (2 oz: $10, 8 oz: $25, 24 oz: $59) – This shampoo has a light consistency and not so thick. It lathers fairly well and it has a lemon scent, which is sort of strong. This really cleans my hair well and it’s great to use everyday since it’s Sulfate-Fee.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Conditioner (2 oz: $10, 8 oz: $25, 24 oz: $59) – Has a slightly thicker formulation than the No Frizz shampoo but not overly thick, and it also has the same lemon scent. This feels moisturizing on the hair after shampooing yet it doesn’t weigh it down.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream (2 oz: $15, 4 oz: $27, 8 oz: $37) – This cream needs to be applied right after toweling the hair or while it’s still damp. You can either air dry the hair or just blow dry thereafter. The result is a tamed hair from roots to tips. Don’t be alarmed if your hair still looks frizzy after a few minutes of applying this, you have to let the hair dry completely in order to see the result.

 

Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo review

 

Bottom line, I think these products work, but you really need to use them together as a step by step process. Using either one or two of them will defeat the purpose, thus making your hair still frizzy and otherworldly. I wouldn’t say that these “perfectly” tame the frizz like the way flat irons do, but these does a good job at calming the flyaways and frizziness.

 

The Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner, and Nourishing Styling Cream is available at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, QVC, Target, Birchbox, Saks Fifth Avenue & Walgreens

 

Happy Weekend!
