Product Review: More Cream & Coco!

I’ve really been neglecting my hair lately. I’ve been using the Selsun Blue shampoo and my scalp is soooo much better. I don’t know why I keep stopping. In any case, I washed my hair two weeks ago and after the first week, my scalp was still clean and my hair felt moisturized, so I skipped washing my hair last weekend. (That NEVER happens! Thanks to Selsun Blue, it was possible). This past week I started doing the INSANITY Workout. It’s probably the hardest workout I’ve ever done. It’s for the next 60 days. Needless to say, my hair has been drenched with sweat everyday since last Sunday. I meant to wash my hair midweek, but I never got around to it.


I FINALLY decided to get it done today. I continued my Pre-poo/Shampoo method with Selsun Blue Shampoo.


I washed that out, then used Cream & Coco’s Carrot Mango Melange Shampoo Bar.


Shampoo bars are my new love. It’s very important to make sure that your hair and the shampoo bar are completely wet before using to avoid your hair sticking to the shampoo bar and causing possible damage. I haven’t had any problems with them. I love Cream & Coco’s shampoo bars because they smell awesome and they leave my hair feeling moisturized. My only wish is that the sample size bar was a little bigger, or maybe not as flat because it breaks easily. I would definitely buy Cream & Coco shampoo bars again. My favorite one was the Banana Smoothie, followed by Cocobutter milkshake.

Following the shampoo session, I decided to try Cream & Coco’s Raspberry Ganache Deep Conditioner. The instructions say to break up the conditioner into pieces and add 1/4 cup boiling liquid which can be spring water, coconut milk, yogurt, milk or simple syrup of honey and water. I chose to add boiling water. The smell was amazing, like raspberries and chocolate. The consistency was a lot more watery than I expected, being that the instructions said it would get to the consistency of brownie mix. I also noticed that it didn’t dissolve as much as I expected. It always seemed like it was separating from the water a bit. I think it would have mixed better with something creamy like the yogurt or simple syrup mix. Needless to say, I was skeptical, but I applied it to my hair and left it on for the full 30 minutes as suggested. When I rinsed it out, my hair felt great, but was just a little more tangled than usual. It was very moisturized and felt coated. After drying my hair, it felt a lot fuller and like each strand was stronger. Who could complaint about that?! For those of you seeking fullness, this may be the product for you!


I blow dried my hair and put it right back into a bun. Week 2 of INSANITY began today. Staying committed is the hardest part.



Product Review: Pomegranate Mint Julep Lip Care Set


Today’s review is Cream & Coco‘s Pomegranate Mint Julep lip care set.

I was excited about getting a lip scrub. I remember back in the days Oprah recommended brushing your lips with a soft bristle toothbrush as a way of exfoliating them. What could be better than exfoliating them with sugar?!

I love the scrub, the smell is delightful, I try not to let it get in my mouth though. The oils in it seem to come to the surface when it’s in the jar, so I mix well before applying the scrub. I would recommend using the scrub over the sink because grains of sugar do fall. After using the scrub, I’m left with soft, moisturized lips. My one wish is that there was a little slot on the side of the scrub to store the spatula. It’s fallen and gotten lost so many times… especially since it’s clear in color.

I like that the day lip treatment has a white top and the night lip treatment had a black top. This eliminates confusion (or even taking the time to read) about which one is for day use and which one is for night use. I find the day treatment to be more moisturizing than the night one, so I use that one more.

Definitely enjoying the lip care set. I’d say it’s worth trying.
