Confessions of a product junkie…

4 May

Every single time I go shopping, whether it’s for groceries or clothes I feel the need to browse the beauty aisle(s). Whether I’m at Walmart, Target, Rite-Aid, Dillard’s, TJMaxx… I just gotta know what they have to offer in the way of beauty products.  My disease is called product junkism. Maybe you’ve heard of it, or perhaps you suffer from it yourself…? IDK about you, but my PJ-ism always seems to flare up around the same time I get the Ulta sale paper in the mail. Have you been to Ulta?!? It’s my version of heaven. I swear I can hear the hallelujah chorus performing when I step in the building. So I just wanted to share with you the acquisitions from my most recent trip to Ulta… ENJOY!

Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths Replenishing Mask

Ingredients: Water/Eau, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Stearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Fragrance/Parfum, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Panthenol, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Sodium Hydroxide, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone.

 I know exactly what you’re thinking: Sham you have gone off the deep end! This DC is neither natural nor Curly Girl approved (dimethicone… HELLO)! I know, you guys, I know. But the bottom line is that I need a new DC Mask… I’m scraping the bottom of my numero uno (pictured below) & I haven’t been able to find a jar ANYWHERE! Grrr @ Pantene! The two have a few common ingredients & I’ll try just about anything once. It smells divine & it only cost me $5 @ Ulta, which means it’s probably $4 @ Walmart. I plan to use it this week, so I’ll keep you posted & let you know what I think.

But my favorite DC is Pantene Pro-V Relaxed & Natural Breakage Defense Deep Conditioning Mask

Ingredients: Water, Stearyl Alchohol, Amdimethicone, Behentrimonium Choride, Cety alcohol, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil, Panthenol, Pathenyl ethyl ether, Fragrance, Lysine hcl, Methyl tyrosinate hcl, Histidine, Benzyl alcohol, Disodium edta, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Sodium hydroxide.  

What else did I buy @ Ulta?

Orly Top 2 Bottom: Two-in-one Basecoat/Topcoat & a handy-dandy buffer block. I plan to do a DIY pedi this weekend 🙂


 What will you buy on your next trip to Ulta?

    Oh, gosh. Is that what I’m called then ? ^o^

    can’t resist going through the latest products too, like, is there a new mascara that will make my lashes thicker ? Or the newest shampoo that will truly give wonderful shine to my hair? So yeah, I’m a product junkie.
