Majestic Pure Argan Oil Shampoo Review

If you've read much of my blog, you've probably figured out that I have color treated hair. I've used many different hair products over the years, and I've become very picky about what I use. I hate taking the time and spending the money to color my hair, only to have the color stripped off or faded from simply washing it. Thus, when I'm given a new shampoo to try I'm very cautious. A bottle of  Argan Oil Shampoo from Majestic Pure arrived in my mailbox two weeks ago, and I approached it with curiosity.

The product listing for Majestic Pure Argan Oil Shampoo lists the following benefits:
  • Majestic Pure Argan Oil Shampoo contains 100% pure Moroccan Argan Oil of the Highest Quality and Purity; Gentle, Sulfate Free restorative vitamin enriched shampoo conditioner
  • Exclusive blend of beneficial Oils and ingredients: Argan Oil, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Camellia Seed Oil, Botanical Keratin, and Almond Oil and Coconut oil
  • Potent formula helps supply shine and a healthy look to hair with its abundance of Vitamin E, carotene and essential fatty acids; Almond Oil, rich in proteins, helps soothe dry and irritated areas on the scalp
  • Majestic Pure Argan Oil Shampoo is a great hair restoration formula all hair types, including color treated hair, Safe for daily use, for men and women
 Would I have an epic shampooing experience?  My first thought, as I massaged my head with this shampoo, was that I love the scent! I was afraid with all the oils listed in the ingredients that this would leave my hair feeling oily or feeling coated with a greasy film, but it doesn't. For something with the name argan oil in it and containing all these oils, this shampoo cleans very well. It doesn't leave my hair feeling stripped and dry, instead it feels soft and clean. I wash my hair every other day, sometimes every third day, and this shampoo does a good job of cleansing. It seems to be gentle, but I do still need to use conditioner so I don't end up with frizzy hair. I'm keeping my eye on it, hoping it doesn't cause the color to fade, but so far it doesn't seem to conflict with color-treated hair.

This Argan Oil Shampoo is available on It includes a 60-day money back guarantee if you aren't completely satisfied.

Biking with Conti Bike Tubes

The good weather has arrived! I’m so happy that the dreary and wet winter is disappearing. That means I can head out for some exercise. I’ve been wanting to bring out my bike, which I haven’t ridden in a long time. So, I was happy to get these new inner tubes for the tires. I got a two-pack of Conti Presta Valve Tubes by Continental.

  •     MOLD CURED AND SEAMLESS EXTRUSION - Creates a consistent tube that is perfectly round
  •     REMOVABLE VALVE CORES - Useful for adding extenders or using Revo Sealant.

I was surprised with how quickly they came. The tubes are made with quality construction and seem to be pretty durable. They are also easy to install, which is a necessity. They come in a bunch of different sizes.

I’ll be riding my bike like a boss…well, sort of, if I had some cool bike riding outfits. I’ll need to work on the clothes next.

Lip Smacker Liquid Sponge-On Lip Gloss Review

Sometimes I'm in the mood to wear lip gloss. The shine from lip gloss can make your lips look plumper, so I'll dab a bit over my lip color. A few days ago I got a tube of Lip Smacker Liquid Sponge-On Lip Gloss in the mail. 

I really liked the shine, which seems to be long-lasting as long (as you don't eat, drink or lick your lips). It was moisturizing and left my lips feeling softer and hydrated after the gloss was worn off.

The price on the listing for the particular vendor of this gloss was more than I would normally want to pay for a 0.09 fl. oz.; tube of what is normally an inexpensive brand, like Lip Smacker. Lip Smacker Liquid Sponge-On Lip Gloss is available on Note: if you follow the link to the listing I've mentioned, the listing says "birthday cake" flavor, and the actual flavor is "red velvet." The flavor difference didn't really matter to me, but I can see how some people may have an issue with it.

*disclaimer: I was given a free tube of the above mentioned lip gloss in return for my honest review.
