It's theBalm Baby!!

SPECIAL REPORT!

Poodle Procrastinator's Take Note: theBalm has created a Dry Shampoo that actually works!!!!



HeHe!

I'm giddy with this news, and had to interrupt our scheduled program (Cousins go Champagne Tasting) to bring you this fabulous announcement!!


I am a humongous fan of theBalm cosmetics company; so when I heard they were branching out into hair care, I had to try the products! And since the company also re-launched their website, all products were 50% off! Can't beat that action!!!

I set myself a budget, yuck, and got a nice big haul of fan-tas-ticity!! (I think that all the words I randomly coin should be in the dictionary!)


TheBalm has already established themselves in my world as one of the best cosmetics companies out there. They not only have adorable retro themed packaging, they also have quality products that work for vintage styles!

I hate when a company has cute packaging, but the inner product is generic un-beneficial stuff you can get anywhere.

Not so theBalm. They are the BOMB!

I received my products and hurriedly unwrapped the outer layers to reveal the cuteness within! Seriously, the designers for theBalm should win an award! They did not fail to deliver with these new products! Cute pin-ups appear in front of the Golden Gate on the shampoo and conditioner bottles; a nod to the company's San Francisco location.

Hair Care, and Brushes, and Primer, oh my!!
The dry shampoo shows a retro gal in ski bunny attire, referencing active dames on the go who don't have time to always wash and dry their hair. Now I don't necessarily qualify as active (HAHAHAHA), but procrastination means not a lot of hair washing either.


I have tried many a dry shampoo, and not one actually fulfilled it's promise to get rid of greasy roots. So it was with low hopes that I removed the lid from theBalm's EN ROOT, and sprayed my locks.


What's this?? Something feels different; something has changed. Can it be? Can it really be?? Does my hair actually feel DRY??!!!

Yes Poodles, theBalm has done it!! They have created a dry shampoo that actually dries up the grease and makes hair look clean and shiny, without any limpness!!



I have not washed my hair since Monday morning, so it was lookin' pretty nasty today. And usually on a 3rd or 4th day of not washing, my hair ends up in a head wrap or a turban. But NOT TODAY!

Today I actually styled it! Today it actually felt CLEAN! Today my world was rocked by theBalm!!

Give your hair a 10 second glamour bath with En Root Dry Shampoo!!

HeHe!

  1. CoriLynn, Oh my gosh, how wonderful to see about these products. I hate washing my hair because then I have to spend so much time blow drying and then styling with electric curlers. Just an hour I could be doing something fun instead of messing with my hair! When I get a little extra jingle I am going to try these products. Thanks so much. Love that they are from SanFrancisco, that's where my mom was born and raised. What a fun blog you have. I am always cheered up just seeing the graphics and the wonderful pink polka dots!!! I LOVE vintage poodle images. Also, thanks for the really nice comment you left. I can't remember if I mentioned it or not on that post but they suspect Parkinsons and started her on the meds, and five days later it almost seems to be helping!! At least she is standing up now. That's a start! Thanks so much for visiting and leaving the supportive comment, I really appreciate it!!!! I hope you are doing well.
    Hugs,
    Julie

    1. Hi Julie!
      Thank you for all sweet words and awesome comments! I love that theBalm is a San Francisco based product too, since I'm a Northern CA girl!! They sell theBalm on HauteLook now and again, for amazing prices- Keep a look out for that! I'll try and put a quick post up if I see it go on sale. ;)
      I'm glad the meds seem to be helping your mom! I'm on the Neupro patch, which is great cause I don't have to remember to take a pill every few hours!!
      It's so hard to find good vintage poodle graphics, especially when you are as obsessed with them as I am!! I'm glad you like my pink and polka dots!!~ Another obsession! Hehe!!

  2. CoriLynn,
    I just put your button on my sidebar, but the button doesn't link back to you. Is there something I am doing wrong or is it just a dud link? Let me know. Either way at least people will see your button and they can google you to find your blog, but if we can fix it that would be great!
    Hugs,
    Julie

    1. Hi! Thank you for putting up my button!! So, so, so exciting for me!!! Yay!!! And I just checked and you're right, it isn't linking back. Bother!! I'll have to work on that and figure out went wrong!
      I'm so computer illiterate, it takes me forever to work these kinks out! I need my own tech-support! Ha!
      I'll let you know when I fix it...
