Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo

Beloved readers, this has a staple clarifying shampoo for me for the last seven years.  My Experience This crystal-clear, thin clarifying shampoo is no-frills “clean slate” perfection. A little dab of this bursts into hordes of bubbles (not necessary for cleanliness, mind you) and is easily massaged into one’s hair. It will strip every last bit of gunk, …

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Cream Lather Shampoo

My Experience Does this truly nourish hair? No, not really. It does make it feel a bit smoother by coating it nicely. This product cleanses well, without totally stripping one’s hair. This is not as mild as L’Oreal’s EverPure and EverStrong shampoos (read my reviews of L’Oreal Products here), but is still gentle for a mid-range drugstore …

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Silk Touch Leave-in

This product in a single word? Decent. My Experience Unfortunately, very curly/coily girls will experience much “poof” with this if you don’t apply copious amounts or seal it with a serum of some sort. This will soften hair; but, it won’t give you a texture you don’t have.  If frizz is your mortal enemy, this won’t be …

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner

My Experience  This rich conditioner leaves hair feeling soft, clean, moisturized, and pleasant to the touch with shine and a creamy-sweet scent. If you use this as a co-wash you’ll need to shampoo and/or clarify regularly to prevent scalp issues or breakage from build up. You can read my experience with the rest of the line …

Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer SPF 30

  AML & Sunscreen I’m a time-jumping, shape-shifting, fire-breathing beast about sunscreen. Why? In the foolishness of my (fairly recent) youth, I suffered three–count them: “One! Two! Three!” bouts of acute sun poisoning. Yes, you read that correctly. I suffered sun poisoning. At the time, I didn’t know sun poisoning was “a thing,” or even possible. (Also, …
