I just wanted to say to all of you--Happy Easter!!! I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating the holiday with friends and family, and that most of all, you remember why Easter is such a special time!

got2b Smoothing Lustre Lotion Review and Giveaway

I just joined the Bzz Agent campaign for got2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Lustre Lotion for hair, and let me just say, this is a good one, ladies!

First off, I just have to comment on the packaging--it is so girly and so cute! There's a pretty little charm attached to a shiny pink bottle that catches your eye right away:

But more important than the look of the bottle is what's inside--Smoothing Lustre Lotion. This product is designed to shape, smooth, control fly-aways, and give your hair a healthy shine. I have to say, I was pretty skeptical about this product because I have very fine hair and I didn't want to lose any of the body in my style. I applied just a tiny bit of lotion (probably a dime-sized amount) to my hair when it was towel-dried. The fruity scent of the product is great--I immediately thought of JuJubes when I smelled it. I blew my hair dry and I was pleasantly surprised to find that this lotion didn't weigh my hair down at all and it really did add a nice shine without looking greasy. I love the fact that you don't have to use a lot to acheive a great result.

got2b has a whole line of these Smooth Operator products, including Smoothing Satin Drops (a de-frizz serum), Smoothing Hair Spray, and Smoothing Luxury Mousse, for soft, smooth control. You can find these products at drugstores like Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid for a suggested retail price of only $5.99 (which isn't bad if your hair looks great day after day)!

Bzz Agent sent some extra bottles along in my kit, so I'd like to share them with you! There will be 2 winners of a 3-oz. bottle of the Smoothing Lustre Lotion. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite new product you've tried lately (it doesn't have to be for your hair). Don't forget to make sure I have your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win!
