REVIEW: @JohnFriedaUS JF2 Salon Shine Dryer

john freida dryer

Successfully fusing sleek, modern designs with breakthrough technology, John Frieda® Styling Tools by Conair is now offering a new generation of stylers that deliver flawless, fabulous and healthy looking results. Each tool harnesses the power of superior ionic technology and advanced anti-frizz conditioning to ensure soft, frizz-free hair, no matter how you style it with an exclusive ceramic titanium coating for a more durable surface.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

JF2 Salon Shine Dryer ($39.99): Achieve major, frizz-free shine with this compact, powerful dryer. A smaller, more travel-friendly version of the second generation dryer, the new Salon Shine Dryer delivers an astonishing 1875 watts of power using an advanced high torque DC motor. Engineered with a high voltage ionic generator to guarantee a smooth blowout and a ceramic titanium-coated grill for even heat distribution, it protects hair against damage and boosts body and shine.

PRODUCT PROS:

  • This product is small in size but packs a considerable punch! I was able to dry my long, thick hair in under 5 minutes.
  • The dryer comes with 2 attachments – a concentrator and diffuser. This is great for achieving 3 different looks: straight, wavy and voluminous.
  • I think the ionic technology used in John Freida hair styling products is amazing! I’ve used the hair dryer and the satin finish flat iron and both left my hair shiny and smooth with no frizz in sight.
  • $39.99 is a great price for a salon-quality dryer that produces great results.

PRODUCT CONS:

  • None!

BOTTOM LINE:

I am very happy with this hair dryer and plan to use it at home as well as on the road. I love how light and powerful it is!

REVIEW: @LavanilaLabs Pure Vanilla Roller-Ball

Pure Vanilla

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

The Healthy Fragrance Roller-Ball ($19): Travel friendly. Purse friendly. Skin friendly. Blended with exotic essential oils and skin soothing botanicals for timeless expressions of nature that captivate the senses and nurture the skin.

PRODUCT PROS:

  • Great bottle size that’s portable and travel-friendly.
  • Like all Lavanila products, this perfume is chemical-free and made from all natural and organic ingredients.
  • Yummy scent is warm and sweet, just like a cookie.
  • The pure vanilla base can be layered over another perfume to create a signature scent of your own.

PRODUCT CONS:

  • My only complaint is that the scent is too overwhelming to wear in the summer. I enjoy light-scented fragrances when the weather is hot and the vanilla aroma of this roller ball is too musky for the warmer months.

BOTTOM LINE:

I recommend this product to anyone looking for a pure vanilla fragrance. The natural ingredients and $19 price tag, make it even more appealing.
