The little things totally get the Muse raved up! Today when she seen Got 2B Cosmic Shimmering Serum a hint of excitement filled the air.
I normally don’t do hair product posts but I could not resist something that had Cosmic and Shimmering in the title! For shame you know the Muse loves her sparkly, shimmery bits and bobs!
So what is it?
A shimmering hair serum to tame frizz and wild curls while adding a touch of shimmering silver to tresses! Um hello Holiday hair beauty budget? Here we come! I’m totally bummed because when I took a picture with this in my hair it sadly does not show up well but rest assured the Muse took swatchies for you! Excited?
The serum is infused with shimmering mic minerals to provide a hint of shimmer to your hair while taming frizz and holding hair in place! It smells sweet and melon like too so it’ll lend a bit of fragrance to your hair as well! No worries it won’t create a dipped in glitter effect out of your hair, it simply gives a tiny bit of silver sparkle that’s subtle and quite lovely to finish up your holiday look! Honestly, I was wishing they’d make this in gold too!
As far as this Muse is concerned Got 2B Cosmic Shimmering Serum is budget friendly at a $4.99 USD price tag and totally Muse Approved for purchase for it (and the awesome shimmers!)!
I loved this one!
Tames the crazy of my curls, smells sweet, plus gives shimmer? Honestly what’s not to like here?
Muse Approved for purchase all the way!

Lush Curly Wurly Shampoo Review
Detox Hair with Baby Shampoo
I don’t know if I’d necessarily call my hair curly but it’s definately wavy and long with bouts of dryness and frizzies that keeps me on my toes to tame!
I normally like tugging it into a bun and slapping a hairband on to keep it nice and neat especially when I’m working! However, during the days that I have it down it’s difficult to tame it all and keep it from flying around my head like a runaway train!
In comes my very favorite shampoo, Lush Curly Wurly. A review for Lush Curly Wurly is long overdo so here’s your loving Muse finally bringing you my opinion on Lush’s Curly Wurly Shampoo!
Curly Wurly is an extremely thick shampoo which is made from various fresh ingredients minus preservatives. Even though the formula is lacking preservatives, the shampoo, in fact manages to weigh down hair considerably well. With hair that’s curly and or wavy you need the extra weigh of a good, thick shampoo to tame your hair and weigh it down which keeps it from frizzing up and out.
Although the formula does a successful job of weighing my hair down and keeping it both manageable and beautiful I do have to be careful how often I use this as it causes a bit of buildup and oiliness when used often.
The formula is a mix of chunky coconut and a base of avocado. The mix of the two fruits and additional oils creates a rather thick paste that smells like fresh coconuts and vanilla. Although the formula has huge shreds of coconut these wash out easily after dunking under your shower for a rinse.
The results of the product are outstanding especially if your hair is thick and dry. I’ve been using this for over 7 months and my hair is considerably more managable, less frizzy, and my curls are more defined.
At $19.50 USD it’s not the cheapest shampoo option around however since it suds up and foams up so well it’ll easy take you 3-4 months to get through an entire pot.
Some key points of the product is the fact that it creates amazingly gorgeous curls while removing frizz and dryness plus giving shine and definition to your hair. It contains no silicons which a plus for keeping your hair beautiful.
After several months of use my hair is less frizzy, softer without the dryness I normally experience, and just overall looks much better.
This is a conditioning shampoo so following up with conditioner is completely optional. Although my hair is very long and very wavy I successfully washed with Curly Wurly and didn’t have a problem with tangles after using without conditioner.
All in all I love this! It gets a hearty Muse Approval for purchase! The Muse loves Lush Curly Wurly and recommends giving it a try!
If you’re not wanting to commit to a full pot might I suggest heading to your local store and asking for a small sample to test out for yourself!

Lush King of Mods Hair Gel Review
Lush Lily Savon Soap Review
Sometimes the simple products work the best.
You may have read in my past posts or in my most recent review that my hair is silicon free. My hair for the most part is free of silicons thanks to Lush hair care. Although Lush does an AMAZING job of keeping my hair clean, beautiful, and bad hair day free I do occasionally want to be extra gentle to my locks while adding in a bit of silicon as sometimes my hair craves that extra weight and moisture that silicon products provide. That’s when I reach for a simple product that won’t break the bank, works really well, and doesn’t load my hair up with a ton of build up!
My god, what is this amazing product that keeps your hair gorgeous Muse?
It’s cheap, it smells beautiful, and it’ll give you some sincerely great hair days.
Since most brands of kids and baby shampoo hair care are made extra gentle and do not contain as many silicons and harsh ingredients as regular shampoo does it’s the perfect solution for getting your hair super clean, gives great condition and moisture, and is super gentle on your locks without causing serious build up.
Since babies and kids have such fine hair they need something gentle to take care of their hair without causing breakage and buildup thus many brands including the popular Johnson & Johnson line create various hair care solutions that are catered towards children.
Although I’m sure I’ll get hell for this from everyone I do admit to washing my hair every single day. Yes, I do. I just don’t feel clean if I haven’t scrubbed my hair up. My hair always behaves amazingly well thanks to a combination of using Lush and baby shampoo.
At the moment my must have kids shampoo is L’Oreal Kids Extra Gentle 2 in 1 Kangaroo’s Mangoroo Shampoo. Hey…sue me..I like Dr. Seuss what can I say?
In all seriousness I really dig the smell. It’s a sweet, fruity scent that’s really lingers well so much so that people next to me will ask what I washed my hair with or what am I wearing. The formula is super gentle and moisturizing even for someone like me with wavy, curly hair that’s extremely long.
I switch my Lush shampoos and conditioners for this twice a week and my hair always seems to thank me for adding it into the mix of things. I find I have less frizz, better manageability, a beautiful scent, plus my hair fairly squeaks it’s so clean!
So the Muse’s moral of this story is that baby and kids shampoo is super cheap and works super well at keeping your hair in beautiful condition!
Head on down the baby aisle and score yourself a few bottles. This particular bottle that I am raving about cost me $1.79 USD! Go firgure!
Awesome hair days await you for under $2 bucks!
The Muse Approves baby shampoo for use!
Release your inner child and start walking down the path to softer hair, less frizz, and better hair days!
P.S. Yes I’m dead serious in case you’re sitting there scratching your head over this post! Go get some baby shampoo and stop reading this!
Beauty on a Budget: L’Oreal Studio Perfect Fix and Studio Smoothness Smoothing Cream Review
Detox your hair with a Lush Big Shampoo and Lush Retread Conditioner Review
Find out how you can customize your haircare with great etailer options!
I was recently given a few L’oreal hair care products for review so I thought I’d slap them in my Beauty on a Budget section and give you the low down on these two new products from L’Oreal.
I got both the L’Oreal Studio Perfect Fix Ultra-Fine Spray and the Studio Smoothness Smoothing Cream. Since they are both for hair management I figured I’d review them together!
The good news is I actually like both.
It deserves to be mentioned that my hair has been silicon free for a few years now. I use all Lush hair care which contains no silicons which in turn equals perfect hair everyday of my life. The only silicons that take up residence in my hair were a bit of smoothing gel I used to use a year ago but I had since switched my gel over to Lush’s King of Mods and that was the end of silicons from my life completely!
Aside from that I will say that I’ve been using the L’Oreal Studio Smoothness Smoothing Cream for a week now and I actually do like it. I know hair care posts are probably a snore but since I have the products here anyway I figure I might as well review them!
The texture is simply wonderful. I may be out of touch with the drugstore brand of hair care and there may very well be a product out there like this already but I’ve personally never seen such an interesting formula. The texture is just like a moisturizing lotion that you’d apply to your body! I take a little more than a pea size amount and apply it to my wet hair and smooth it in. It tames my any frizz I have and keeps my hair safely in place all day long. My hair is very long, very wavy, and very out of control thus slicking it back into a bun and slapping a hair band in place is my normal order of the day when I’m heading out to work. It happens to smell really fresh as well kinda like the way most salons smell when you walk in! You know what I mean I’m sure!
Now I also received the matching L’Oreal Perfect Fix Ultra Fine Spray Finishing Hairspray! Holy cow that was a big mouth full! This too I will give a raving review too. Again, I feel a bit out of touch with hair care from drugstores and have no idea of options available out there but I felt like this was very different from my past drugstore purchases. It’s been ages since I’ve touched drugstore styling products and I always think back to my teen years when hair spray and gel bulletproof’ed my head for me. This was great because if someone shot at me I could carry on without worry since the bullet would literally bounce off my head. Can’t say I get the same sort of protection with this hairspray! It’s very light, smells lovely, and doesn’t leave behind a hard, crusty layer! It actually makes my hair very soft and bouncy! The Muse likey!
As I said I’m shocked as I really do associate major build up with styling products but both of these did work well and gave a very natural finish and hold that I liked! I’m still using both after a week now which could count for something, obviously I’m impressed.
If you’re looking for something to give your hair great management and minimal buildup with a cheap price tag I’d definately see about picking up both of these. These are pretty darn good.
What do you use to manage your hair?

Lush Cosmetics has a special knack for discontinuing some of my very favorite products. Lush normally runs through items that aren’t selling well at year’s end and they end up axing them and putting out a fresh new line in the place of some old favorites.
Most Lush addicts fail to understand they mystery of the dreaded discontinue list as many of the items seem to be selling great so why stop making them? No items are immune when it comes time to chop the line up and do away with the old and bring in the new! Bad news for Lush lovers everywhere when that happens!
But I do have good news! Phew!
Lush UK has been running something called Retro Lush for the past few months now which brings back old favorites. This first began as a series of races and those items ordered enough from the site would be made up and brought back for purchase. Soon after these “races” they decided to just bring back all the old favorites and sell them as regular items! Yay! The Muse did indulge in ordering from Lush UK and stashing away large quantities of bath bombs, shampoo, and other yummie items!
But the good news is if you fear the scary airmail prices from UK to US you can now get Retro Lush from the Lush US site! Wahoo!
Do click on over to begin the shopping frenzy!
If you need help making your selections from Retro Lush or you’d just like further information my comment box is open!
I lurve me some Lush and have tried everything in the store!
