Maple Holistics: Silk 18 Conditioner

When I was approached to do a review on one of Maple Holistics products, I knew exactly what I was going to hone in on. Silk 18 Conditioner was the perfect choice!

This past Summer, I went from blonde to silver. That process didn’t include a friendly process to my locks. They are parched. Seriously parched. The sulfate-free shampoo I was using did not make my hair soft at all. I was beginning to think that bleaching my hair this light wasn’t for me.

Some hair conditioning products need to be used over time to see results. Especially if you have an extreme hair issue like super oily, super dry or super damaged. So, just imagine the pleasant surprise I got when Silk 18 Conditioner made my hair beyond soft…it was truly silky! And, on the first use.

When you take a look at the ingredients in Silk 18, you instantly see that almost all the healthy oils for hair and skin are in this. And, there are 18 (hence, the name) different silk amino acids that leave your hair moisturized and able to retain that moisture.

The light vanilla fragrance was extremely pleasant. The texture of the conditioner was really thick. Thick like a conditioning mask. However, it was still easy to squeeze out of the bottle. Honestly, the moment I started massaging Silk 18 Conditioner into my hair, I knew it was a winner. After 3 minutes, I rinsed and that silky feeling was still there. I let my hair air dry, without any other products. Since I have fine hair, I wanted to see if the conditioner weighed down my strands. Not only did it stay soft but after a half dozen uses over time, my hair didn’t experience a build up. My fine curls were airy, soft and healthy.

As the weather becomes more and more dry with the seasonal change, there’s no way I can get away with not being diligent keeping my hair, as well as the rest of me, hydrated. Using Maple Holistics Silk 18 Conditioner has my hair covered.

Facial Mask Monday: VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask

I gave my hands a good, fast rubbing when I was asked to review VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask. I was looking forward to the experience.

While the main selling point for these eye masks is to decrease darkness under the eyes, I got my benefit from the plumping up of my fine lines. That’s always a huge plus for me. And, VII Code didn’t fail me.

A tip I was given was to place the pad packages into the refrigerator so that they will be cool when used. Not only was it brilliant but, it was the best part of my day when I did this. I had to have said ‘Ahhhh’ at least 50 times before I fell asleep wearing the pads.

I have gained wisdom in knowing that it is important to read the instructions. And that’s for anything that comes with instructions. When I read these instructions, I had to re-read them a few times. The product suggests wearing the eye pads for 8 hours over night or, for 4 hours during the day. Even though I work from home, I opted, for the first attempt, to wear the VII Code eye pads overnight.

So, the first night, I got the pads on my face and in place. I found the pads to have a very generous amount of product on them. The pads themselves felt very soft too. The product wasn’t tacky but they did adhere well to my skin. I didn’t have any issues adjusting the pads where I wanted them either.

Naturally, I was eager to see the results the next morning. I looked in the mirror and found that one of the pads had managed to get into my hair. The other one was on my pillow when I went back to make the bed. I did get a good laugh at seeing the one on my head. But, I am a sleeper that moves around a lot at night.

The pads did stay on my skin long enough for me to see that I had plumped up my fine lines. I spent plenty of time admiring this small miracle in the mirror. And, my wrinkles stayed at bay all day. Folks, we have a winner!

Wearing the eye pads during the day annoyed me too much and I’m sure it was because I was completely conscience of them. I didn’t leave them on for the required 4 hours. I got in just a tad over 3 hours. I yielded great returns, nonetheless.

So, I give VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask a resounding applause for smoothing out my fine lines I have on the outer corners of my eyes. I can see a nice benefit for using these for 4 hours before, let’s say, an event in the evening.

You can order your box of eye masks at VII Code’s website. I also found them for same on Amazon’s website.
