The Honest Company Shampoo & Body Wash Review

I've been on the lookout for a gentle shampoo that my daughter and I could share. I don't want my color to fade, and at the same time, I want a product that will be easy on my three-year-old's hair.

Since we order from The Honest Company regularly, I was excited to try Honest's shampoo & body washicon. I had the most amazing luck when just before ordering online, I found a two-pack at Costco. One for me and one for my daughter!

I'm pleased with how gentle it is on both my hair and skin, but the real test is on my daughter. She hates having her hair washed, so I need a product that offers great clean but rinses fast.

I'm sure I used too much this first time, but I wanted to get a good lather. She had a ton of food and crafting stuff stuck in her hair from preschool. The shampoo lathered well and felt like it was doing a great job at cleaning without stripping her hair. Even though I used a lot, it rinsed super fast with no complaints from my daughter. In fact, she said, "Mommy, it smells good!" It really does smell good. :)

We then used it as a body wash, which my daughter loved. She definitely liked this better than using a bar of soap or her usual, less pleasant smelling baby soap.

The Honest Company shampoo & body wash is a winner in our house!

Pottery Barn Kids Lunch Bags: Cute, but Annoying

When my daughter transitioned to "big kid school" this fall, I bought her a personalized lunch bag from Pottery Barn Kids. This was our first time having to send lunch to school, so I wanted her to enjoy carrying the bag and also have it be practical. She's just turning 4, so it was important that she be able to open the bag herself and carry it from the car to the lunch cart without assistance.

Pottery Barn Kids offers a slew of fabric patterns and four bag styles. Penny picked the MacKenzie Chocolate Zebra classic lunch bag, which is a fairly standard size and shape lunch box. We paid $7 to have her name embroidered on the bag, which I figured was worth the price to ensure her box isn't mixed up with another kid's lunch. I let Penny pick the font and thread color and ordered online.

Our classic lunch bag has now been used every weekday for nearly three months, but it looks more like a year old. It's still functional in that Penny can carry it in to school, o…

Switching from Olay Regenerist to L'Oreal RevitaLift

I've been using Olay Regenerist DNA Superstructure UV Cream for years now. I love the SPF 25 (it's now 30) the thick moisturizing quality, and how fresh my skin feels once it's absorbed. It's really thick, so it tends to need more time before I put on foundation, and it does leave my skin a touch lighter than it is in real life. The sunscreen ingredients mean this moisturizer smells just like traditional sun protection, and even a bit like my daughter's diaper cream (ick), but I know it's doing it's job and I've been really happy with it.

I intended to buy some more during a trip to Walmart today, but L'Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Day Lotion had a $2 off coupon attached, and the base price was less than the Olay product, so I took a chance and bought  the RevitaLift instead.

L'Oreal's bottle is prettier with a similar pump mechanism. Like Olay, the product is in an opaque container, which helps keep the contents from being affected by ligh… Hair Color Review

It's now May 2014 and since my original review, I've had a chance to fly out to eSalon and see how orders are processed, learn the right way to apply color, and find out the differences between box color and eSalon color. I learned a lot and have a totally different perspective now and would definitely recommend giving eSalon a try.

When you order from eSalon, be sure to upload a current, well-lit photo of your hair and don't hesitate to ask their color experts for advice. The eSalon team are experts. Let them help you find the right shade and apply color correctly. It's a learning process if you're used to box color products.

Last August, I tried eSalon. At the time, I found the color was fine in that it was even and matched what I had seen online for that shade, but it wasn't really what I was going for. eSalon's customer service was helpful, with a colorist calling to explain how their product differs from what I buy in-store and the risks of going darke…
