If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Also, if you leave Target with only two beauty products, does that count as a haul?
So many philosophical questions!
Purr usual, I went to Target today with a short list. I only needed a tub of spinach (I’m back on a green smoothie kick), but I walked out with all kinds of nonsense, including these two products from Lauren Conrad’s homegirl/hairstylist Kristen Ess.
One’s her ($10, 7-oz. bottle), which, to be honest…I’m kinda murky on exactly what it’s supposed to do, but my ends have been dry lately, and I like the idea of having a moisturizing spray on hand to use whenever whenever the mood strikes.
Water, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Algin, Chitosan, Carrageenan, Litchi Chinensis Pericarp Extract, Hypnea Musciformis Extract, Sargassum Filipendula Extract, Salvia Hispanica Seed Oil, Gelidiella Acerosa Extract, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Sorbitol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Coco-Glucoside, Cetearamidoethyldiethonium Succinoyl Hydrolyzed Pea Protein, Xanthan Gum, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance
The other one is her ($14, 8.45-oz. bottle), which I actually needed (“needed,” she says. HAHA!), because I just finished another bottle of R+Co Analog (which costs twice as much) and was in the mood to try something new.
It’s supposed to be good for curly girls, frizzy hair, humidity control and damage.
K, sounds good. Sign me up!
It’s been a minute since I’ve used a non-foaming cleansing conditioner, and this one has a thicker consistency like a more traditional co-wash, so I hope it doesn’t weigh my hair down too much… I’ll let you know.
Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Isopropyl Palmitate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Behentrimonium Chloride, Fragrance, Acacia Concinna Fruit Extract, Algin, Aminomethyl Propanol, Balanites Aegyptiaca Fruit Extract, C12-13 Pareth-23, C12-13 Pareth-3, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Carrageenan, Cetearamidoethyldiethonium Succinoyl Hydrolyzed Pea Protein, Cetrimonium Chloride, Chitosan, Coco-Glucoside, Disodium EDTA, Divinyldimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, Gelidiella Acerosa Extract, Gypsophila Paniculata Root Extract, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Hypnea Musciformis Extract, Keratin, Laureth-4, Litchi Chinensis Pericarp Extract, Panthenol, Polyquaternium-7, Propylene Glycol, Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Retinyl Palmitate, Salvia Hispanica Seed Oil, Sargassum Filipendula Extract, Sorbitol, Xanthan Gum, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone
I have to admit that I was enticed by the packaging. It’s pretty, don’t you think?
Have you tried anything from Kristen Ess before?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Like the rest of the world, I was shocked to learn of Kate Spade’s passing. 🙁 Just goes to show you that you never know what somebody’s going through privately, so please be kind and compassionate to each other. Life is very short.
May she rest in peace.
