Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Conditioner Review

When my hair needs a good deep conditioning I usually turn to Aveda. They are one of my favorite hair care products along with Lush. The Dry Remedy Moisturizing Conditioner does a great job taming my locks and it smells so good.

What’s to love?

Dry Remedy has the classic Aveda Pure-Fume scent with with certified organic lavender, bergamot, ginger lily and other pure flower and plant essences.

I have thick wavy hair and the dry remedy gives my hair a nice smooth finish and tames my frizz a bit which is great for Summer. This formula applies like a cream but does not weigh my hair down either which I love. I usually leave it on for about 5 minutes.

And as an additional plus Aveda is having a 20% off + free shipping sale today if you use the code LOVE which is pretty cool.

My 5 Must-Have Hair Products For Summer

I ‘m gearing up for Summer and that means getting some Summer hair products to tame my tresses! Here are 5 of my favorites.

h.jpg

Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight – I love the Aveda Smooth Infusion line because it keeps my curly hair nice and straight. The plant-derived fibers in this formula work to straighten and it keeps my hair nice and soft. Price: $26

Lush Montalbano Shampoo Bar – Montalbano shines up my hair and gives it a wonderful lemon scent. I love the lather from the Lush shampoo bars and they never dry out my hair. Price: $10.95

Garnier Whole Blends Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter Smoothing Oil – When I need a little extra conditioning I use a dab of this coconut oil. It tames my frizz and I love the coconut scent. Price: $6.99

Lush Big Sea Salt Shampoo – While Big is a bit pricey it’s so worth it. This large 11.4 oz. container lasts me about 45 days as I don’t use it everyday. Big gives my hair amazing bounce and softness. Price: $27.95

Bath & Body Works At The Beach  Sea Salt Hair Mist – This is my favorite Sea Salt Hair Mist. It detangles, moisturizes and smells so good. It has a “blend of white frangipani, toasted coconut & bergamot waters essenced with a cool, saltwater breeze” Price: $16.50

Aveda Beautifying Body Moisturizer Review

I got a free 1.4 fl.oz. sample tube of the Aveda Beautifying Body Moisturizer when I picked up a new bottle of the Brilliant Conditioner for my mom and I have mixed feelings about it.

I am a huge fan of the Aveda scents and this one is pretty too. It has certified organic shea butter and olive, soy and safflower oils with rosemary, lavender, bergamot and other pure flower and plant essences.

Beautifying is not quite as strong as the Shampure scent but it still has a bite and the scent is a bit different…it kind of smells like earthy, mossy flowers. I can’t decide if I love it yet but I don’t hate it at all.

The creme is very heavy and moisturizing. I feel like this will be great for Fall or when my hands are really dry. I don’t see it as a Summer cream.

Overall I think it’s nice but I don’t think I’d buy the full-sized version as the Rosemary Mint is more of my Aveda favorite.

Bonnie’s March 2017 Monthly Beauty Favorites!

Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment Review

My hair was in massive need of a treatment this weekend because I’ve been using my flat iron a bit more so I grabbed my Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment for some intense moisture for my locks.

What’s to love?

Aveda is my second favorite hair care product after Lush and when I’m in need of a deep condition I like to use the Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment. Luckily I have a bunch of sample sizes to get me through when I need some conditioning.

This one has the Aveda pure-fume scent but to me it’s a lot lighter than the shampoo scent. It’s scented with organic bergamot, mandarin, ylang ylang and other flower and plant essences. I really love this scent.

The creamy formula has quinoa protein and it makes a huge difference on my hair with just one treatment. I usually leave it on for a full 5 minutes after I really work it into my ends and then rinse. Afterwards my hair is soft, shiny and full and it looks even better when I use the Lush Karma Komba Shampoo Bar first.

Overall this is one of my favorite hair staples!

Price: $36 for 5 fl. oz.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Review

I have been a fan of the Aveda Rosemary Mint collection for years so I was thrilled when my husband got me the Rosemary Mint Shampoo, Conditioner and Hand & Body Wash for my birthday last month.

rmm

What’s to love?

The Aveda Rosemary Mint is one of my comfort scents. I am a huge fan of mint and this scent is a strong one. It’s a combination of “certified organic rosemary and peppermint with other pure flower and plant essences” and it reminds me of Christmas.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo – I use the shampoo when I feel like my hair needs a deep cleaning. This one makes my scalp tingle in a really good way and the smell from the lather is so strong and amazing. It really does wake me up as they say on the Aveda website.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Conditioner  The conditioner is equally strong in mint smell and it does a great job detangling my hair. I use this shampoo a few times a month for shine too.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Hand and Body Wash – This body wash is so fresh and minty and really does a good job of waking me up too. I love using it in the morning for aroma therapy, the mint smell is so refreshing. It’s got a nice lather and rinses clean too.

I also really want the new Aveda Rosemary Mint Body Polish. I’ve heard really good things about this gentle exfoliator.

The Aveda line is Made in the USA.

Aveda Control Paste Review

Today the weather turned to snow and my Aveda Control Paste held up to the elements! We even made it out too see some Christmas trees.

What’s to love?

The Aveda Control Paste is a finishing paste with flax seed. For me it’s more pliable than wax and really gives my newly layered hair some texture and bounce. I take a very tiny amount and rub it between my palms then scrunch and style my hair with it. I love the look I get and it holds up in the snow and rain.

The paste isn’t heavy or greasy or oily at all. I also love the matte finish that it gives my hair.

I’m also a huge fan of the scent. It’s pure Aveda earthyness with the pure-fume scent which I love. The 1.7 oz. jar is $25 but I bet I get a year out of it. A little goes a long way!

 

Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight Review

One of my all time favorite hair products is the Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight .

a

What’s to love?

To say my hair is unruly is a major understatement. I have huge thick hair that’s neither curly or straight. It’s kind of wavy and bushy like Hermione Granger which is fine by me.

Luckily I found a great product to tame my hair. The Aveda Smooth Infusion is one of my “can’t live without” products. I apply a dime sized drop on my hands, rub together and then coat my entire head when my hair is wet. I usually air dry my hair and applyingSmooth Infusion first eliminates any fuzz. I also use it on my hair when it’s dry to get rid of static and smooth it down.

As with all Aveda products I love the smell. It smells fresh and earthy and strong which I love. Aveda has a truly unique smell that’s not perfumey but it is powerful.

My 5 fl. oz. was $26 and will last me 6-8 months which is awesome.

My hair will never completely straighten but the Smooth Infusion gets me darn close. Without it you might as well just compare me to a Texas tumble weed when it’s humid. So a huge Yay! for the Aveda Smooth Infusion.

Aveda Shampure Body Lotion Review

I’ve been wanting to review the Aveda Shampure Body Lotion for a few weeks now. I am a huge fan of the classic Shampure scent which has a completely distinctive Aveda smell and I love it.

In case you were wondering! Why does Bonnie use a bush behind her beauty products? Good lighting is the key to great photos and I find that a green background in natural light helps light products pop! There you have it. Mystery solved : )

a

What’s to love?

Like Clinique, Aveda is one of my go-to classic brands that I absolutely love. The Shampure scent has been around forever and the smell is a stress reliever to me. I’ve had this bottle of body lotion on my desk for ages and use it on my hands and arms although you can use it after a shower too.

It has 25 pure flower and plant essences and the scent is pure Aveda. Most people either love or hate it because it’s so strong.

This body lotion leave my skin smooth and hydrated and I love using it after I’ve been in the sun.

Aveda Brilliant Shampoo & Conditioner Review

I have huge thick wavy hair that has a tendency to get product build-up which I hate. So every week I’ve been using Aveda Brilliant Shampoo & Conditioner to combat my unruly hair (see phot0 below).

What I love about Aveda Brilliant Shampoo.

The Brilliant shampoo works wonders on me as a clarifying shampoo and is great for getting out spray-on sunscreen, chorine, hairspray and other styling products. The smell is wonderful with a fresh clean smell that includes Chamomile. I use about a quarter sized dollop for my chin length thick hair.

What I love about Aveda Brilliant Conditioner.

To me the Aveda Brilliant Conditioner is more like a cream or lotion. It’s thick, white and comes in a squeeze out tube and you only need a small amount to get the job done. The conditioner leaves my hair feeling clean after I rinse with no residue or build-up.

Price: Shampoo $21 for 8.5 oz. – Conditioner $21 for 6.7 oz.

I get about 3 months use out of the shampoo/condition combo using it one or twice a week.
