not your mother’s beach babe #NYMBeachBabe

Hello Everyone!

I received some sample bottles of Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe texturizing shampoo and conditioner from Influenster to try for free.

My hair is a little bit naturally wavy. I was interested to try these because I feel like my hair doesn’t usually hold any curls or extra waves that you are supposed to get from products like these. I had high hopes for what my hair might look like and tried these in the shower right away.


I love the smell of the shampoo and enjoyed how it felt in my hair in the shower. I didn’t like the smell of the conditioner as much.

My hair was a little wavy but I don’t know how much of that is from this product and how much of that is the little bit of waviness I get in my hair when I don’t use any products. I’ve used the shampoo and conditioner a few times and my hair always looks about the same. One day I didn’t comb my hair after the shower and I think it was a little bit more wavy on that day then the other days.

I would be curious to try some of the other Beach Babe products, like the Sea Salt Spray.

Have any of you tried these products?

Hope you’re enjoying your summer!



trying rimmel london moisture renew lipstick

I recently received an invitation to Influenster from one of my friends. It is an online community from which you can receive products to test and where people can give opinions of products and experiences and share them through social media. I thought it would be fun to give it a try.

I received my first voxbox from Influenster that had a tube of Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipstick to try. I’ve never tried this lipstick before and I’m not a huge lipstick wearer. I felt like the color, As You Want Victoria, seemed really bright when I first saw it. I wasn’t sure I would like it. When I tried it, it was bright but it felt great on my lips. There is tons of moisture and I didn’t feel like it instantly dried my lips out.

IMG_0793I think this color would be great for a night out. And I’m definitely going to buy another shade to try for a more everyday look. Maybe this will turn me into a lipstick wearer. I guess we will see.

What do you guys think??
