WEN by Chav Dean Cleansing Conditioner Review

The Muse recently jumped at the chance to try out a Wen by Chav Dean Healthy Hair Care System. Seriously, I’ve been wanting to indulge in the Wen line for so long, I’ve lost count of the times the lemming has come over me. I do so wonder why I haven’t tried it up until now because I’m positive I’ve had it in my cart a million different times over the last two years.

WEN Cleansing Conditioner 1

As you know I’m a Lush girl at heart so about 98% of my hair care, skin care, and the likes are for the most part Lush in nature. One main reason I prefer Lush is the lack of silicons in the hair products which leave my hair lighter and less weighted down with product and build up. But on occasion I can be tempted away from Lush to check out something new…..Today that would be WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner that tempted me away from Lush and has been tempting me away for the past week or so.

Jump ahead for the review.

Carol’s Daughter Princess Tiana Beauty Collection

Carols Daughter Princess Tiana Beauty Collection 1

The Muse is still very much a kid at heart which is why the new Carol’s Daughter Princess Tiana Beauty Collection is calling out to me. Last year Disney approached Carol’s Daughter to launch a hair and a bath line for their new movie, “The Princess and the Frog”. Today that dreams comes to life with The Princess Tiana Beauty Collection line.

The collection includes Beauty Within Shampoo ($10), Inner Shine Conditioner ($10), Dream big Hair Detangler ($10) and Sharing Means Caring Bubble Bath ($8).

The line is quite affordable and sweet for little ones in your life or in the Muse’s case she’s all about hauling it for herself.

What?

I like cute stuff, sue me.

Lush Ibiza Party Shampoo Review


The Muse went to Ibiza once when she was 12, it’s obviously been too long since that trip. I do remember thinking, even back than, omg cute guys and paradise. These things do wander through a pre-teen’s mind on occasion.

Since I haven’t been to Ibiza since I’ve been settling for partying like I’m there with Lush Ibiza Party Shampoo!

Let the games begin!

Jump for it!

Ibiza Party Shampoo was created in the good old days and recently was brought back (as it was discontinued long ago) to the Retro Lush Collection. The shampoo was created for clubbers…what? I don’t make this stuff up, Lush does. It contains lemon, grapefruit and pimento berry to keep your hair shiny and awake into the early hours…again that’s all Lush talkin’ there. The thing is I think they slipped a little hemp in my bottle because it smells like hemp and citrus, w00t I’m really going to party like it’s 1999 now!


I’m not too keen on the smell even after all these years of using it but I do so admit it keeps my hair incredibly light feeling, frizz and tangle free, and just squeaky clean. God, I love you Lush for making everyday a good hair day.

Get it while the getting is good as it is part of Retro Lush so who knows how long it’ll stick around.

Start partying peeps!

back+to+school

Gosh I imagine some of you are preparing to head back to school soon or will be shortly! Lucky you. I remember my days at school quite fondly, fun, fun. As you begin preparations to pack up for college you’ll notice plenty of cosmetics, hair and skin care goodies launching new lines to tempt and tease you at check out. You obviously need to wash your hair while away at school…ok, I’ll be fair…some of us don’t bother washing while we’re at school especially laundry nor do we sleep or eat anything that doesn’t come from a vending machine, it’s cool, we’ve all been there. However, budget friendly options are available so at the very least let’s try to keep our hair squeaky clean.

Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Collection is a new line of products designed to work together to achieve a touchable tousled look. Believe me I TRY so hard to gain this look it’s not even funny. Stiff, crunchy hair is OUT, soft, tousled locks are so IN.


Check out the brand new Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Collect below (it’s budget friendly too).

If you’re a fan of Herbal Essences you’ll be happy to know the entire line is quite budget friendly with a $2.99 price tag (aside from the finishing cream marked at a reasonable $5.49 for a large jar). So if you’re looking to snag some hair care to tote away with you to school or you’re in need of soft, tousled curls that aren’t going to cost you a ton of cash check out some of these options!

You know the Muse, she’s normally a Lush fan for life but I can be occasionally tempted to the dark side to indulge in cheap drugstore hair care goodies. Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Collection is particularly good for someone like me who avoids hair dryers like the plague. The products can all be used on my wet hair to create soft, frizz-free curls that are gently tousled and pretty. For $2.99 it’s not going to change your hair’s life but it sure will attempt to!
