Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Facial Lotion

a_4f36fa871f2dfI got this Daily Facial Lotion this week on my load and I just happened to run out of my normal facial moisturizer on the same day. So I thought I might as well try it out. I don’t normally like cocoa butter products because I’m not too crazy about the scent, but this moisturizer is labeled ‘Fragrance Free,’ which is right up my alley. The bottle also says this product is for sensitive skin, reduces redness, is lightweight, and calms stressed skin.

I’ve been using this moisturizer for about a week now and so far I love it. The one downfall is the smell. Although it says fragrance free, there is still a slight scent, but it isn’t overwhelming and doesn’t linger at all. The first time I used this I squeezed about a nickel sized amount of the lotion onto my fingers, because this was how much I used with my previous moisturizer, and when I started rubbing it in I realized that I had used WAY too much. That night I used only a pea sized amount which was perfect to thoroughly coat my face and neck. I like that it covers so well with such a small amount because I use moisturizer twice a day and I’ve always wished it would last longer. I also like that this product absorbs pretty quickly, so I don’t have to wait too long to put on my makeup, and it doesn’t dry out my skin or make it oily. I am probably going to buy another bottle before it is gone, because I have no idea if it will be available again. I would definitely recommend this daily calming facial lotion to others, since I love it and it’s a pretty great deal, 3.38 ounces for only $3.99!

Sneak Peak of July 19th Load

This week I got in so many awesome things! I can’t tell you how excited I am just to put them on the shelf, not to mention trying some of them. Every week I get to look through the order guide and decide what to order. Lately there hasn’t been too many new items, but this week there were so many new things I had to get a little of them all. Which meant a HUGE load for me and AWESOME choices for you! There were so many things on this load, I couldn’t possibly tell you everything without writing a novel, so I just want to point out some of the things I am excited for and that I think you would be excited for as well.

Delon conditioner with Argan oil

delon conditioner

I am kind of a conditioner fiend. It’s been a little mission of mine for quite a while now to find a conditioner that equals the awesome little conditioner packets they give you in at home hair dying kits. If you’ve ever used one of these kits, you know what I’m talking about. That conditioner makes my hair feel so incredibly amazing and it always makes me sad when they only give me one tiny little one use packet. So I’ve been on the search for years for a conditioner that makes my hair that happy.

I’ve had this Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner in stock for quite some time, but I was always skeptical to try it because of that big scary word : Oil. Why would I want to put oil in my hair? Wouldn’t that just make it oily? That’s what I always thought. Until I stumbled across a post online about natural oils that are good for your hair. The first one listed : Argan Oil. Argan oil was referred to as the ‘Miracle Oil’ and they listed several benefits of it such as a natural sunscreen, heat protectant, intensive repair treatment, improving elasticity in brittle hair, reducing frizziness, repairing damage, reducing future breakage, and helping hair growth. Now, plenty of conditioners claim to do these things, but I had always stuck to brands like Tresemme or Aussie and nothing that said anything about oil. After I had read about Argan oil, I was very much considering buying a bottle. I finally made up my mind when my cousin mentioned liking her new Argan oil conditioner.

So I finally bought the Delon conditioner with Argan Oil. I started off reading the bottle and saw that this product is not tested on animals, which I really liked. After my first use, I was in love. I think everybody knows the amazing silky feeling that your hair gets when you are rinsing out your conditioner. Sometimes it’s silkier than others, depending on what conditioner you use. The silkiest I have ever felt it was after using the conditioner from hair dying kits. Until Delon. After shampooing, I coated my hair with conditioner, focusing on my roots. I left it on for about two, maybe three, minutes while I shaved and washed. Then came the moment of truth, rinsing it out. As I was rinsing, I actually ‘Ohh’ed over the way my hair felt. I was definitely satisfied.

I don’t know about you, but I feel like if I use any one conditioner for too long, my hair gets used to it and it stops really working. But that was not the case for this conditioner. I am on my second bottle and my hair still feels amazing after every shower. I normally let my hair dry naturally and it would always dry kind of frizzy and I hated it. After I started using Delon with Argan oil it doesn’t get frizzy. I also straighten my hair almost everyday (if I have time) on the highest setting (because I’m impatient), that’s a lot of heat that my hair has to deal with. Before this conditioner I noticed my hair would get kind of dry after I straighten it. Not anymore. My hair feels so healthy when I touch it now that I smile stupidly. And that makes me happy! I absolutely love this conditioner and I would recommend it to anyone, no matter what your hair type. Because you never know when you might stumble across your next favorite thing. =)

I found Delon shampoo and conditioner with Argan Oil online from 6.99 – 11.29 per bottle. But you can get 12 ounce bottles of Delon shampoo and conditioner with Argan Oil at Manteca Grocery Outlet for only 3.99 per bottle. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask me!

I love my job!

I love my job. As head of the health and beauty department at Manteca Grocery Outlet, I get to see so many different types of beauty supplies before they go on the shelves. I’m not gonna lie, I get pretty excited. Some things I have never heard of and others I’ve always wanted to try. My problem is that I really like my money and sometimes I’m too chicken to take the chance on a new beauty product. I mean, if I don’t like it, then I just wasted my money. There is a 100% money back guarantee at Grocery Outlet, but I’m probably not going to return it because first of all I’m too lazy and probably won’t remember and second I feel weird returning something if I have clearly already used it. I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets nervous about trying new products, but when I do find something I particularly like, I am quick to let everyone know. Sometimes it’s worth the risk to try something new because you never know when you might stumble across your next favorite product. My goal is to help put your beauty nerves at ease so that you can find products that are perfect for you.
