Amika Brooklyn Heat Lightweight Speed Dryer

Hey everyone! How are you? (Mental health check in the comments). I haven’t updated in a while but I wanted to drop in and rave about my Amika hair dryer for a minute. Specifically, the 1875 watt Brooklyn Heat. I’ll also mention their amazing 3D Volume and Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner later on.

I bought this dryer a little over a year ago and it is the absolute best hair dryer I’ve ever used! I cannot believe the quality, super high end. Not to mention the design is to die for – right down to the box it comes in, beautiful. The price point of Amika dryers is a little steep (around $120) but in my opinion absolutely worth it.

Now down to the actual specs – Brooklyn Heat comes with 3 temperature and 2 speed settings. The LED lights indicate changes in the temperature and speed (super pretty btw). There is a removable end cap + lint filter which makes for seamless cleaning. There’s also a cool shot button which I love, it helps set your look perfectly because this baby gets HOT!

Amika hair dryers are next level and I highly recommend investing! Another product I swear by is their 3D Volume & Thickening Shampoo + Conditioner.

Cruelty-Free, Vegan and recyclable while also being free from sulfates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and petroleum is no easy task! Wow!

This weightless shampoo thoroughly cleanses and plumps from root to tip for the ultimate go-big moment now, and healthier-looking hair every time you use it — thanks to redensyl®.

loveamika.com

I can honestly say I’ve seen a big difference in my hair since I started using both the shampoo and conditioner. It’s definitely much thicker, I was actually getting worried at how thin it was getting until I switched to Amika. The scent is a big plus for me too, it smells so good! Again, the price point is a little steep but with the results and quality I can say it’s worth it.

Thanks for reading, I hope you’ll check out Amika – let me know if you’ve tried them before in the comments.

Fenty Skin Cookies N’ Clean Whipped Clay Detox Mask

How’s everyone doing? I just wanted to drop in and rave about Fenty Skin’s new detoxifying clay mask Cookies N’ Clean for a minute! This won’t be a particularly long review but this product is worth a special mention! The first thing I noticed is the texture, super bouncy! I don’t know if ya’ll have been keeping up with the reels for Cookies N’ Clean but you can literally bounce the product with your finger! It’s too pretty, a light grey with black charcoal beads that break to darken the mask when you massage it in. It’s TRULY a masterpiece!

Let’s get down to the details:

  • Unique lightweight and fragrance-free whipped clay formula helps extract dirt, oil, and impurities
  • Encapsulated charcoal bursts upon massaging the mask into skin and helps detoxify
  • Salicylic acid helps clarify pores 
  • Instantly refines skin’s texture and minimizes the look of pores 
  • Instantly reduces excess oil and fights shine throughout the day
  • Tested on all skin types, including sensitive skin

Now that we’ve peeped the specifics I want to dive in to what using the mask is like. Firstly, there are a LOT of charcoal beads – which I love! The mask itself applies evenly despite the beads which do break when you massage them in. I find them a little hard to break but I feel like this helps exfoliate. The sensation from the mask is the best part, icy – clean and fresh I absolutely loved the way it made my skin feel during and after treatment.

Packaging recommends 2-3 times a week and I agree so you don’t dry your face out. I say this because it CLEAN cleans your pores! I was having an oily acne moment complete with itching and one 15 minute application cleared it right up. I can’t recommend this mask enough, let me know if you’ve tried it in the comments and keep an eye out for my upcoming review of the entire Fenty Skin line! ✨

Maison Margiela Replica Beach Walk

Replica Beach Walk

Once again I’d like to thank Influenster for sending over Replica – Beach Walk by Maison Margiela free for me to try in exchange for an honest review. Firstly the packaging is cute, the box has a matte feel making it a little hard to open – I actually had to open the bottom first. Still not entirely sure if It’s meant that way. Initially I couldn’t get the pump to work so I had to unclog it with a needle – unexpected due to the products super high price point.

The scent! Wow! Strong and long lasting this perfume induces clear memories of the ocean and beach. I am literally transported back to my teens and the nostalgia factor is off the charts. I recommend wearing this out in the Summer, night or day. It’s super clean and appropriate for most occasions.
