Not Your Mother's // Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo - $4.74 - $5.99 

I must admit that showering is a task that tends to be at the back of my mind. Only right before I go to bed do I dreadingly recall that I smell like the gym and my hair looks like I used it as a napkin to wipe up butter. Okay, I'm exaggerating, I typically look (and smell) presentable with the help of deodorant, body spray, and a dry shampoo. Dry shampoos have been on the market for years but I believe, correct me if I'm wrong, there has been a high increase in sales as of late. Maybe it's because everyone has become so horribly lazy (me) or the opposite, nobody has time for showers because they have such busy schedules. I have only been using dry shampoo for a couple months because curly hair, like mine, tends to uphold the mirage of cleanliness for a longer time frame than straight hair. I finally bit the bullet and bought the first dry shampoo I came across due to the build up of hair products that cancelled out my aforementioned 'curly hair phenomenon'. The Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo caught my eye back in June and I have been using it every since. The smell of the shampoo is very pungent and I have found the shampoo to only work if I spray it close (not the suggested 6 inches away) to my scalp, causing visible white spots in my hair, and then brushing vigorously. It does do the job but it's a quick fix. I will be trying out a different dry shampoo after I'm through with this because I know there are better ones out there waiting to make me look more socially acceptable. What is your go-to dry shampoo?

Makeup Collection

Some of you may have noticed that I have taken a bit of a hiatus from blogging and this is the cause of multiple things: I started my second year at college last month, my birthday weekend just passed by, and I have been having severe writer's block. That being said, I do have quite an exciting post today! I have been collecting makeup for a couple years and only after taking these photos did I realize that I may have an actual problem... After making that realization, I went out and bought more makeup... opps. This post does not include my brushes, skincare, haircare, or perfume collections, just plain 'ol makeup that goes on the face. Let me know if you have any questions about certain products or would want a thorough review on a specific product (maybe that will pull me out of my writer's block)!
