Back to School Beauty Haul

Over the summer,  I learned to appreciate beauty products more, and I made a few really great purchases for back to school. Here's a list of the products, with reviews to follow.

3. III Sisters of Nature Sweet Bounce Back Treatment

A few of these products were featured in my 2012 Summer Beauty Haul post, but I just wanted to touch on them again, just in case!

Ciate Velvet Manicure Set

I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it. I'm so glad I bought it! It was $22 at Sephora, and even the cashier was excited for me to try it out. The steps are very simple to follow, and the results are great. Here's a peek at my finished mani: 

The velvet feels great! Keep in mind that getting your nails wet or excessively washing your hands will dull the velvet and change the feel of it from soft to rough. But not to worry- a bit of nail polish remover to smooth it over, another coat of the polish (included in the set), and a new coat of the crushed velvet will make your mani look new once again! 

Milk_Shake Spray Leav-In Conditioner

I usually don't just walk into salons and pick up products (since I went natural) but this Milk_Shake product immediately caught my eye. I spoke to the cashier about it and she did say it worked, but I needed to find out for myself, after all, we have two completely different hair textures!

As you can see, I've already used a lot of this product, but I must say it seems to be working well! It smells delicious, and the application is as simple as the name; spray. 5-6 sprays in the morning or before bed does it for me, although I might spray a bit if I feel like my hair feels a bit dry. I only paid $10! I've already made plans to purchase another bottle. 

III Sisters of Nature Sweet Bounce Back Treatment 

I've used this product once before in the sample size, and it definitely gives Miss Jessie's Super Sweetback Product a run for it's money! I have officially switched over to the III Sisters of Nature product, because not only is in within my budget, but I also found it more moisturizing than the Miss Jessie's product. I'm so glad I finally found this product in a larger size- I'm super excited to use it again!

Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

 In my 2012 Summer Beauty Haul post, I used a different facial cleanser, which really didn't help as much as I expected it to. It worked well for the first few weeks, and I've been on a plateau since those weeks. Since I love Clean & Clear so much, I decided to try another product by them. I have used this face wash before, and it kept my face feeling clean and clear- no pun intended. It also eliminated a good amount of my pimples, so I hope it works this time around.

Victoria's Secret Love Spell Body Fragrance 

I posted about this lovely body spray in my 2012 Summer Beauty Haul and my review stays the exact same. This is definitely my go-to body mist, I receive so many compliments on it how could I not keep wearing it? Definitely sticking with this one.  

This school year is definitely going to be great. I feel restored and ready to start this year with a bang! I hope you all enjoyed my haul :)
