Sponsored by Mirum Shopper. All opinions are my own.Lately I've been on the hunt for products that aim to treat my skin and hair for the issues I'm having as I age (not just things to make me look younger.) Being in my 40's comes with a plethora of issues that are both as a result of my actions when I was younger (or inaction in terms of taking care of my skin and hair) and the normal course of getting older. Yay me. I've used Nexxus hair system products in the past and I've been really happen with the results. So when I learned that you can get a 3-product full size set from Sam's Club for just around $26, I was game to check it out. While Sam's Club may be associated with large bulk items, it's also a great place to generally save on items that you love. There are 6 different sets of Nexxus products that you can choose from that include a shampoo, conditioner and hair treatment. Or if you don't want all of the same products from the same collection, you have the ability to choose 3 different Nexxus items for the same price through their customized regimen. For example, you could purchase the Color Assure Vibrancy Shampoo and Conditioner, but then select the Promend Split End Binding Cream. The 6 systems are: Emergencee Damage Recovery System: for weak and damaged hair Oil Infinite Frizz Defying System: for frizzy or unruly hair Diametress Luscious Volume System: for flat and fine hair Color Assure Vibrancy Retention System: for color treated hair Youth Renewal Radiance System: for fine and weakened hair Promend Split End Bonding System: for hair prone to split ends If you type in Nexxus in the search bar on the Sam's Club website, each system will show up, as well as a way to customize your set. Choosing begins with conditioner, then shampoo and then a hair treatment. For this review, I chose the Youth Renewal Radiance since my hair is weakened from coloring and heat styling my hair. And while I have a lot of hair giving it the appearance of being thick, it's actually pretty fine. Nexxus Youth Renewal Radiance Shampoo, Conditioner and Elixir smell and feel incredible. The only way I can describe the fragrance is like a creamy, comforting lotion. The texture of the 3 also align with this as well - most especially the Elixir, which is a white serum that is dispersed through a dropper. Youth Renewal Radiance Shampoo and conditioner both have ingredients like coconut oil, hydrolyzed elastin, keratin, pearl and wheat protein. The Elixir is also enriched with liquid pearl and concentrated 100% pure elastin protein. After use, each strand feels plumped up, incredibly soft, hydrated and shiny. Something I noticed after using these products, is that my thermal brush grips my hair better without ripping and breaking any strands as I am drying my hair. This means frizziness has decreased considerably and breakage from styling is way down. My hair looks great and I really love this hair system. There's definitely a Nexxus hair system to solve your hair woes, and to save $16 on a bundle, head over to Sam's Club website to create yours now!

Lately a lot of my beauty obsessions have been due to my other obsession, Instagram. Thanks to Instagram I've discovered beauty products and brands that would have otherwise never been on my radar. My most recent IG beauty product discovery is Lani Tropical Hair Treatment. I was immediately intrigued by their gorgeous beachy IG pics, amazing packaging and the fact that the hair treatment is both 100% natural, cruelty free and vegan. Getting my hands on Lani Tropical Hair Treatment was a bit more difficult than I thought and I was close to giving up. Then I just happened to walk into Urban Outfitters and almost squealed out loud when I saw that beautiful turquoise bottle sitting on the shelf in their beauty area. I've been using Lani Tropical Hair Treatment for two weeks now and absolutely love how my hair looks and feels after each use. It takes my hair from dry and dull to shiny and hydrated even after I colored my hair. I normally apply it to my dry hair, place it in a top knot and leave it in my hair for almost an entire day. If you do not have the time to leave it in your hair for that long, it is recommended that you leave it in your hair for at least 30 minutes. It's also recommended that you shampoo twice then condition as usual after using it, but depending on how my dry my hair feels, I'll just shampoo once to leave a bit of the treatment in my hair without weighing my hair down or leaving it too oily. I also love using it as both a hair treatment and curl tamer whenever I opt to leave my hair in it's naturally curly state. Please keep in mind that I have thick, highly textured hair so this may not be the case for someone with fine or even medium hair. There are not a lot of hair products that my hairstylist Pearson Knight (Elle genius awarded hairstylist) approves of, but after reading the ingredients in Lani Tropical Hair Treatment (Camellia seed oil, Coconut oil, Kukui nut oil and Macadamia nut oil) and after seeing firsthand what it has done for the condition of my hair, he encourages me to use it every time I wash my hair. He has even started using it, especially after a surf session. As I mentioned above Lani Tropical Hair Treatment can be found at Urban Outfitters online and also at the Third Street Promenade location in Santa Monica. I just hope that Urban Outfitters starts carrying the Lani Tropical Body Treatment in all stores as well, since I was too late to purchase it online before it sold out!
