Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist Review

I hate the beach. Sorry. Since I hate the beach it’s impossible to get beach hair. Beach hair seems absolutely essential to Summer and if I don’t have beach hair I might not be “in”….I must have beach hair at any cost!

Ok..dramatic I know but seriously. I don’t do beaches…sand, sea weed, etc…if God had meant for us to thread around on hot sand, wade in salt water, and have the sun beating on our heads, he’d have given us fins at the very least dontcha think?

Beach hair seems to be the in thing during the Summer months. That slightly damp, mussed up look a la the Little Mermaid. You know hawt tresses that look like you dived into the ocean, spread out on a beach towel, and let the wind dry out your salt laden hair to perfection. Who knew that the beach could do good things for your hair right?


If you aren’t a lover of the beach but still desire the hair that goes along with a trip to the shore peep at my review below!

Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist is awesome hair in a bottle sans the beach. A cocktail of sea salt, extracts of algae, orchid, Tahitian gardenia, aloe vera, oils of kukui and coconut and possible a little bit of sand (ok I made the sand part up) gives tresses texture, body, bounce, volume, and hold for that beach worthy look you’re craving.


God this stuff smells incredible. Can’t we has sniff o’ vision on the Interwebz? I’ll talk to Al Gore and see what we can arrange, the mighty guru of Internet creation. I wish I can explain the scent to you but it’s a bit complex…think fresh, think slightly floral, think…the beach…Maui with a little wowie thrown in there. Loves it!

So what’s it do?

Take your slightly damp hair (or dry but damp gets the best results in my humble opinion) and mist a bit of Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Mist onto your locks. Don’t comb it through just scrunch it gently if you like or flip it upside down and shake (this works a treat plus you’ll feel like you’re in some shampoo or styling commercial). That’s about it…the results are bouncy, textured locks, with a bit of volume that simply makes you look like you just bounced off the sand.

Beach hair easy and mess free in a bottle plus no sand in unusual places!

Adore this stuff. Muse Approved for Purchase, it’s one of my Summer Makeup Must Haves!

Musings of the Day: Manly Beauty Regime

According to an article on Reuters Japanese men are quite obsessed with beautifying themselves.

“Yoshitomo Sango treats his complexion to a face scrub, toner and face cream every morning before strolling to a nearby salon to get his hair done….”

Which brings me to my Musings today. What do you think of men that take part in a daily beauty ritual? Moisturizing? Toning? Maybe even applying powder or foundation….?

musings

Tell the Muse and click below for my view!

“Japan’s $3 billion male cosmetics market is one of the biggest in the world, accounting for nearly one-fifth of men’s cosmetics sales globally, according to market research firm Euromonitor International. It estimates the global market will reach $25 billion by 2011….”

These numbers do not shock me in the least. Japan is a culture obsessed with beauty, could be why I love the Japanese so much, and having such a large male audience in the beauty world isn’t any surprise. I think it’s great for a guy to enjoy a beauty regime of any kind he chooses be it skincare or makeup. Any guy that feels skincare is important is so in my ace book plus the Muse has never made any secret over the fact that she loves pretty men!

What do you think?

Do you think men that worry about their skincare are awesome?

Scary?

Do you draw limits on what they should and shouldn’t concentrate on makeup and skincare wise?

Tell the Muse!
