Stainiac and Umberto Review


 Time for another birchbox product review! And a few others as well. 
 I was a bit disappointed with this product. Called Staniac, it is meant for your lips and cheeks. First of all, this product is so sticky and gooey, there is no way I would ever put this on my skin. No way Jose. I did, however, give it a go on my lips. I was pleasantly surprised by the color. I was afraid it was going to be too red, but it did look good on my lips as it was more of a dark pink. I feel like I will use this, but once it is gone I will not be buying more. It just isn't worth it in my opinion.
The next two products were not from birchbox. I was browsing Target for a new dry shampoo. I was using Rockaholic, which I liked a lot. But the more I used it, the more I felt like it made my hair hard to manage and style. And for $20 a bottle, I wanted a little bit more from the product. So on a whim, I bought these.
I have never tried anything from this brand before. But I decided to take a chance, and it was only $10. So far I am loving it! It doesn't leave as much residue feeling in my hair as the old brand, and it is easier to shake out if I spray too much. I can tell I will be sticking with this for a while. Yay! - I love finding a great new product by accident!
The other item is shine spray. It claims to make your hair have a healthy shine and decrease the effects of humidity. It definitely does both! I have also found that it keeps the static out of my hair, which is a huge problem that I have in the winter time. I am so glad I bought this on a whim, because I use it almost every day that I use my dry shampoo. I recommend this brand to anyone who is looking for a new dry shampoo or shine spray.

What is your favorite brand to use?

  3. Have you tried Bed head's dry shampoo? I got it as a free gift from Beauty Brands awhile ago and absolutely love it! It works the best out of all of them I have tried.

  4. Lately I have been really considering buying a dry shampoo as I am really tired of washing my hair every or every second day+ it really damages my hair as I always use blow dryer!
    I will try to remember this product's name when I will go to my local drugstore & finally buy my first dry shampoo! :)

    1. I didn't used to use it either! But now I only wash my hair every other day and use dry shampoo in between. My hair is a lot healthier! I always love your comments!

  6. My fave dry shampoo is batiste. And it smells nice & comes in a dark color spray, which is great for brunettes like me

  7. Shame about the Stainiac - it looks so pretty!
    And I've never actually used dry shampoo before - I've only ever heard good things about Batiste and I can never find it anywhere! I should really try this one :]

  10. I'm with ya! The Stainiac isn't my favorite! I do like it on my lips, but I feel like using it on my cheeks would be awkwardly sticky. I will definitely have to try out the dry shampoo.
