Fekkai Advanced Glossing Cream – Review April 4, 2012

The Fekkai Advanced Glossing Cream is supposed to leave your hair shiny and frizz free. How does it hold up?

This is a thick yellow cream that does not really have any scent and feels quite smooth.

To use you are supposed to apply a pea sized amount to either damp or dry hair. I’ve tried it both ways.

I don’t know what it is, but I cannot get this product to work for me.  I tried applying a pea size both wet and dry and it didn’t do anything. Then I tried more like 3 peas, the next time I tried more like a full pea pod – it just never really did what was advertised. To top it off, I also ended up with extra dirty looking hair the next day, again regardless of the size I applied the previous day. Overall this was NOT a win.

Will I buy this product again? Nope – it did not work for me.

Will I finish the sample? Nope – it is going in the trash when I get home.

Here’s the breakdown:

Sample Size:  1.6 oz
Full Size: 1.6 oz (also a 4 and a 7 oz size)
Full Size Price: $8.10
Sample Value: $8.10

My March Beauty Army Kit – Wrap Up

I’ve had a chance to use and review all of the products from my March and decide on how much I liked them. So now it is time to do my box wrap up.

In case you don’t remember, here is a summary of the Awesomeness level:

Box Awesomeness Level Review (AL)

  • 5 points for an item that surpasses everything else I’ve tried and becomes my #1 choice for what role it fulfills
  • 4 points for an item that becomes added to my permanent collection of cosmetics and I will repurchase
  • 3 points for an item that joins my “I might buy this again” list
  • 2 points for an item I finished or will finish the entire sample of but in the end decided not to re-purchase
  • 1 point for an item that I tried and immediately threw out/gave away
  • 0 points if the item was a duplicate of something from a previous bag/box/kit that only scored a 1 in that box – meaning I knew enough to not even bother with trying it.

MAD Skincare Eye Defense Shielding Serum – Review

Filed under: Review,Skincare — slagoon @ 5:26 am

Today I bring you the final product from my March Beauty Army Kit, the MAD Skincare Eye Defense Shielding Serum.  To start with I had a really hard time starting to test this product because of the little pump dispenser it uses didn’t want to dispense the product. After turning the dispenser upside down and leaving it that way for a couple days I was finally able to get product out. Now I understand why the product was not coming out.

This serum is a thick gel that reminds me of petroleum jelly. It has no real scent and rubs in smooth – but does not seem to be instantly absorbed or anything like that. I think it probably works well, in that I didn’t see anything change in the appearance around my eyes while I used it, but it is hard to tell because the Lift Lab cream I’ve been using has done such a good job that I can’t really see many fine lines anymore.

Would I buy this product again? Probably not – I really love my Lift Lab eye cream

Will I finish the sample? Sure – it works pretty well.

Here is the breakdown:

Sample Size: 0.13 oz
Full Size: 0.5 oz
Full Size Price:  $54.00
Sample Value: $14.04
