OGX Healing + Vitamin E Penetrating Oil REVIEW


               Happy new week everyone! Today I am reviewing one of the products that I received from OGX. This Vitamin E Penetrating Oil smells and feels like something I should be buying for my skin. OGX Healing + Vitamin E Penetrating Oil comes in a clear bottle. It has a light, fine consistency.  It is lightly scented and the scent does not linger. It reminds me of Fantasia iC Hair Polisher. It is one of those glossy oils that makes your hair feel like silk after you flat iron or blow dry it. It is worth mentioning that Vitamin E is the fifth ingredient on the list, although it is in bold letter on the front of the bottle. It promises to tame frizz, increase strength, and promote elasticity. Keep reading to find out what happened when I used it on my hair.

My opinion

             My very first experience with this product was amazing. It got absorbed by the hair very quickly. The BIG PLUS for me is that it is none-greasy. It does not weight the hair down. A little bit goes a long way, but is hard to know if you've used the proper amount when the hair is wet because the oil is so light. OGX Healing + Vitamin E Penetrating Oil can be used on dry hair also. It moisturizes the hair and tames frizz. It gives the hair that glossy feel when you touch it. It is protein-free, and it starts working right away. 

The bottom line
              If you have any damage caused by heat, this is a wonderful product for your hair. This penetrating oil will help your hair get its elasticity back and improve your damaged ends. I recommend this product for those of you who flat iron your hair often. 

The Benefits of Using Bentonite Clay on Your Hair


            You've probably heard about a clay mask for your face before. But have you heard about the benefits for using clay on your hair? Is clay the new all natural shampoo? Simply put, Clay is aged volcanic ash or powder. Although Bentonite clay is widely used, it is not the only known clay on the market.  Montmorillonite clay is another clay powder that can be used on the hair. It is named after a region of France called Mont Morillon, where the clay was first discovered. Bentoinite clay, on the other hand, was found in Benton, Wyoming. Bentonite, therefore, became its trade name. Clay contains Silica, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron,  Sodium, and Copper. Clay can be ingested or applied topically. It absorbs impurities and removes toxins from the hair.

            Bentonite clay produces an electric charge when added to water. Therefore, when applied to wet hair, it binds together and stays united with the hair while the positively charged products from the hair get absorbed by the clay mixture. Let me see if I can explain this a little better. The clay absorbs the liquid, then it expands to attract toxins. Then it binds to the bacteria and toxins on the surface of the hair and removes them. 



How to use Bentonite Clay on your hair

              Before you start using clay on your hair, keep in mind that clay alkalizes the hair. It needs to be mixed with an acidic liquid to balance  out the pH level of the hair. Also, the clay powder should be mixed in a plastic or glass bowl using a wooden or plastic spoon because clay absorbs metal and becomes less attractive as a result. And the most important thing is to make sure that you buy a clay powder that does not contain any lead. Some companies try to get smart and add lead to their clay powder. 


Bentonite Clay Mask Recipe/Ingredients

  • 1 cup pure clay powder
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1-2 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
            I  use Apple Cider Vinegar when making my clay mask, but I rarely measure anything. I add water as needed to reach the desired consistency. I usually add vinegar in small portion until I get a yogurt consistency or a thick paste, then I add the water.  The reason is because the neutralization process and the chemical reaction is more noticeable when vinegar is used. How much clay powder you use is up to you, and depends on how dense your hair is.

Liberté Organic Whole Milk Brazilian Sea Salt Caramel Yogurt REVIEW


          My brother-in-law introduced me to liberté yogurt about a week ago, and I have been obsessed ever since. The company  is based in Canada, but I heard stories  that they were bought by Yoplait. If you can find the same packaging  pictured below, then you will know that you are buying the ones that  I  tried. They come two in the pack and each tub weighs  16 ounces.  I tried both the vanilla and the caramel. What I like the most about  this brand is that their yogurts  are not overly  flavored.  They are rich and creamy with the right  amount of sugar. I told my husband, who is not a yogurt eater, that these yogurts are like ice cream without  the ice. I know  it's a little  confusing, but l am sure he understood  because  he loves ice cream. My only problem  with this yogurt  is that it is not thick enough. The consistency  is slightly  thicker than a smoothy, which works  for me sometimes because  I like to add granola  and dry fruits  to my yogurt. Did I mention  that it is USDA certified  organic? Yes, honey! And I love it when a product   doesn't  have a long ingredient  list and unnecessary  additives. 





Have you tried  any  Liberte  product before?
