In Review: Jane Carter Curl Defining Cream


For Mother's Day, My mom gifted me the whole line of the Jane Carter. I tried all the products here and there. Some I loved. Some I didn't quite like.

The curl defining cream was one of the products that I didn't like much. I have never been too fond of cream defining creams. Though, I gave it a try. My initial thoughts on this products wasnt to good. It left my hair very frizzy with no definition. I didnt mind the results because I dont mind frizz but when I am looking for a product that suppose to define curls, I want the definition.

 Then I decided to try the product again. The second time must be a charm because I adore my results.

Initially, I put the product on as I do with any curling product. I scrunch it in. So I decided that this time I will try a different way. This time I smooth the product in. Some may call it the praying hand method. Then I racked my fingers through it.

IMAG0639-1.jpg Each time I did sit under the dry. Each time I did apply a heat protectant. Both times I had very little crunch. It left me with soft hair. This time with soft coils that I love. I do have a lot of shrinkage but I love my wash and go's with a lot of shrinkage. I think its cuter that way. As you can see in the picture above...A LOT of Shrinkage. When stretched, my hair is collar bone length.

I have a lot of shine though I am sure that the heat protectant has a lot to do with it.

Will I use it again? Yes! Will I purchase again? Yes, if my results continue to be like this.

Thanks Mom!!

Influenster Sponsored: Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Polish Review.

I have to say that I really like this polish. Two coats gives you a great  3-D manicured looked.

The top of the polish has a magnet with a nail rest to allow easy usage.

 Clip Resistant and great shine

Magnetic Nail Color - Graphite GravityDont forget that the thicker the top coat the better the effect is. My daughter said that the design looked like ocean waves. The pictures below are of my daughters cute little fingers.

For 8.99, I will be purchasing again.

3-D Nail Art in Seconds! Revolutionary formula infused with metallic particles that move when exposed to the specially designed magnet to create an extraordinary effect.

Application Tips

STEP 1: Apply 1 coat of base coat. Shake Magnetic Nail Color to activate. Remove overcap with magnet and set aside. Apply 1 coat of Magnetic Nail Color to all 10 nails and let dry. STEP 2: Apply a thick second coat of color to 1 nail and immediately hold the built-in magnet over the nail. Rest the guide just below the cuticle without touching the wet nail polish. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat for all 10 nails and let dry. Finish with top coat.
