I’m a sucker for testing out new and noteworthy beauty products. I’m always looking for the next “miracle cure” for whichever beauty ailment I happen to be fixating on at that moment (split ends, cellulite, chipped nails, dark circles). This week, we’re back to split ends. I ran out of my usual deep conditioner, so I decided to test out CEW’s (Cosmetic Executive Women) pick for best hair care product, Bumble and Bumble Mending Masque.
First things first, this stuff is expensive. $37 for five ounces… you go ahead and do the math (I’m not any good at it). Anyway, the texture is nice and thick and I actually don’t recall a smell at all. Let me sniff my hair. Please hold….
Yeah, no. So, anyway, I slathered my hair with the dense cream and then raked it through from roots to tips with my fingers concentrating it on my ends (duh). Then I decided to go ahead and look down at the directions (see how I operate? Do not do as I do. Always read directions FIRST). I saw that it instructed me to leave the mask on my hair for ten minutes. Ten minutes?!?! That’s a long time to hang out in the shower with not a whole lot to do.
1. SplashProof iPod Shower Speaker, $33.99, 2. Hello Kitty Shower Cap, $16, 3. Biore Steam Activated Cleanser, $6.36, 4. Crystalline Pedicure Wand, $10, 5. True Blue Spa 60 Second Manicure Scrub, $12, 6. Bliss Stimulator, $22, 7. Pink Baby Light Up Duck, $4
So, I tried to figure out how exactly one would spend this extended shower time productively. Clearly, my “go to” would be dancing (you’ve seen my moves), so a shower radio is a must. You also probably want to scrub any calluses off of your tootsies or pretty little fingers and follow this up by steaming your skin flawless. In case you get lonely, it can’t hurt to bring a pal… like a rubber ducky. With the party you’re throwing in the shower, ten minutes will fly by in no time and you’ll emerge looking like a lady who spent all day at the spa.
