BlowPro Faux Dry Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo can be a miracle product but it’s so hard to find one that works.  I’m always on the lookout for a great formula that really works, but this one by BlowPro is one that I always come back to.

It’s a very fine white powder that you dispense onto hair in little “poofs” by squeezing the bottle.  I found the application odd at first, but once you get the hang of it it’s very easy.  It feels a bit like inflating a blood pressure cuff.  I kind of wish the Bumble & Bumble Pret a Powder (another dry powder shampoo) had the same method of application because it’s easier to control how much product you apply and where it goes.  For travel it has a swivel top to cover the nozzle and prevent spills, and it’s non aerosol so it’s airplane friendly!

Obsession: Soap & Glory Hand Food

I may or may not have developed a slight obsession with the Soap & Glory Hand Food… I definitely have three different sizes floating around my apartment.  I’ve tried several different hand creams and this one stands true as my favorite!

My first mini tube came from Sephora just before I left for my trip to England.  It quickly replaced my Bath & Body Works hand cream for a few reasons:

  3. It fulfills the most basic requirement of a hand cream: moisturization.  Granted if your hands are so dry they’ve begun to split at the knuckles you may need something stronger, but for daily year-round use it fits the bill perfectly.  You’ll need to reapply after washing your hands, but a little bit of the hydration will stick around even if you don’t.
