New products!

Some new stuff showed up in my mailbox today! Because I totally need more of stuff! In my defense, they were on sale and shipping was free.

But over to the important stuff. First up is Etude House Silk Scarf Hologram Hair Serum. It's late and I haven't been able to get any pictures, so I've borrowed pics from google (naugthy naughty!).
This one is not as runny as serums usually are, it's actually pretty thick. I put a tiny bit on my hand and rubbed it in, and it felt like a regular serum though. It smells really good too, and I'm looking forward to trying it on wash-day tomorrow!

The next product is from TIGI's S Factor line. I've never tried that line before, but then again I'm pretty new to TIGI. I have the Candy Fixations Glaze Haze Semi-Sweet Smoothing Serum, and I'm pretty crazy about that one. They should really re-consider some of the product names though, they can get pretty ridiculous. Well, back to my new magical hair thingy. It's the TIGI S Factor Smoothing Lusterizer. It promises to make the hair smooth and shiny, and well, who doesn't want that? I also googled a bit before purchasing, and it appears to be a shimmery, glittery product. I have a bit sitting on my hand right now, and I can confirm that it's pretty shimmery, though it doesn't sparkle after being rubbed into my skin  it actually still sparkles a little bit after being rubbed in. It smells AMAZING too, I hope that's a smell that will linger on my hair. It's difficult to describe, but it smells kinda fruity-berry-ish. A bit like strawberry, I think.

The last product is also from TIGI's S Factor line, and it's the Silky Smooth Moisture Serum. I think it's pretty obvious what this one is promising me. This one doesn't smell as nice as the the other ones, it's more of a weird green apple smell mixed with soap. A bit fishy when it's on my hand, but it changes to a soapy smell after a while. Not too unpleasant though, as the smell isn't as strong as the other products. The texture is nice though, and it certainly made the skin on my hand very nice and smooth. I'm curious to see if this products will do amazing things to my hair, or if it'll be disappointing. I hope it'll be amazing, maybe it'll distract me from how annoying my hair and scalp can be.


  1. Found your blog through LHC. I just wanted to ask how the Silky Smooth Moisture Serum worked out for you. Do you recommend it? Was thinking of purchasing this product, but have heard mixed reviews on it.

    By the way, Norway is such an amazing country. I had the privilege of visiting there about 20 years ago. Such amazing natural beauty found there.

    1. To be honest, I find that a bit difficult to answer, because I haven't used it that much. I've mostly been using the Silk Scarf Hologram serum and the Smoothing Lusterizer, both of which I can recommend. :) I can't remember experiencing any negative effects the few times I've used the Silky Smooth Moisture serum, but I don't think it did anything special for my hair either.

      It's nice to hear that you had a great time in Norway. May I ask which part of Norway you visited?

  2. Thanks for the quick response to my question. I will check into those other products you mentioned. Thanks.

    I visited Oslo, and from there took a train to Bergen. Stayed in Bergen for several days and took a short cruise on the fjords in the area, specifically Sognefjord. This was definitely one of the highlights from the trip. The beauty was inspiring.

    From there I flew up to Trondheim. Nidaros Cathedral was incredible. In the USA and Canada we don't have nearly as much old architecture. The cathedral was stunning, as was the country as a whole.

    Loved the trip. To this day it's the only trip I've ever taken outside of the US and Canada (I live in a small town in Montana near the Canadian border). I'd seen a travel film on Norway and was impressed by the beauty and just had to visit.
