UnBurn Sunburn Relief Review

I’m sure each and everyone of you know by now that summer is in full swing, especially down here in the South were my family and I reside, so when I was given the opportunity to review a product called UnBurn that is said to relieve the pain of a sunburn I was pretty excited to say the least.

According to the website and the information on the bottle UnBurn reduces burn progression and pulls the heat from your skin, cools and soothes and relives the pain thanks to the 2.5% Lidocaine. With that said when our sample arrived it did so just in time because we had just gotten our swimming pool up and running so needless to say after a long day in the pool my son and husband both had a slight sunburn.

As for our thoughts on UnBurn, well my husband and son both said it helped quite a bit and the first thing we noticed was the amazing smell, I had originally thought that it would be an unpleasant scent but I was quite surprised when I opened the bottle and it smelled like spearmint gum. Besides the scent I also love that the jel is thick enough to coat the skin but doesn’t leave the skin sticky.

We have used the UnBurn for more than just a sunburn reliever since it arrived. Since summer is in full swing and we are outside quite a bit during the evening hours the mosquitoes and ticks have been quite a pest and I have used the UnBurn on their bites on the entire family and I’m happy to report that it has worked wonders on the bites as well. I noticed that is sooths the itch and to me it seemed like they disappeared faster than if they had been left untreated.

Overall, we give UnBurn two thumbs up and would recommend UnBurn. I know for sure I will be keeping some around the house for sunburns, minor burns (which my husband gets a lot), insect bites and other minor skin irritations.

Infusium 23 Review!

I am really excited  to share this product with you. It is the Infusium Hair Treatment. So what I received was 4 bottles I got the Shampoo, Conditioner and 2 bottles of the Leave in treatment (One spray).

This opportunity couldn't come in at a better time. I recently had a haircut at a neighborhood "salon" and I was very disappointed by the results. I went in specifically to get rid of my split ends and some layering. In return  I got my split ends and a charge for unwillingly wanting my hair curled at an extra charge. It looked fine at first but little did I know that once the curls feel off my split ends where still there. Lesson learned! Don't trust your hair to just anyone.

So this is my first time using these products. My hair type is straight hair, medium length. I color my hair every other month and use heat styling tools every other day. So here is what I think overall about the products as a whole:
  • Affordable Price (Local Drugstore) Around $6-12 for each again prices varies. 
  • Leaves your hair feeling extra soft and shiny after every use.
  • Detangles Hair, I did not have to comb it to detangle you can run your fingers through your hair and that's it. 
  • Love the Smell it stays on for a long time. 
  • Improves the texture of your hair. Like I said I use hot tools and during the week I did not feel the impact as bad as I usually do.
  • Overall Improves Hair Health
  • Left me with a fresh feeling in my scalp both during and after the shower.
  • I also noticed there was less frizz on my hair.
I did do my research and read that it came out too watery, which in my case it did not. I had no problem with it except that I did have to use the conditioner twice to feel like it covered my hair completely. Overall I would definitely purchase this again and recommend it everyone. It works great and your hair deserves it! 

So let us know if you tried it. Did it work for you? Would your purchase it again? Leave a comment bellow! :)
