Back in January, I promised that I would be trying more drugstore beauty products this year and letting you know what I thought about them. While I’ve done that with some makeup (post forthcoming!), I hadn’t yet done it with my hair care. That’s why I was so excited when Proctor & Gamble (P&G) approached me about trying a couple of their products over the course of a few months and letting them (and you) know what I thought. I love this idea, because sometimes when I try a product, I give up too soon, never really giving it the time it truly deserves to do what it says it will do. (I have a feeling I’m not alone in this!) This way, I’ll have a chance to test these products thoroughly. Today, I’m telling you about one of the drugstore beauty products I’m going to be using and inviting you to join me. I’m also letting you in on how you can save some serious money along the way. Let’s do this!
Pantene Foam Conditioner Collection
I’ve had fine hair since I was little, so I have been dying to try this product since I first saw an ad a few months ago. The most significant issue for me has always been how to nourish my hair and keep it healthy, shiny, and strong while maximizing volume and body. Most conditioners make it too soft and flat, and this one promises “air-light conditioning with 0% weight.” Perfect! I’ve used Pantene shampoos for years, so this was an easy add for me! Although it’s available in multiple formulations, I opted for the Pantene® Pro-V® Sheer Volume Foam Conditioner (I figure if I’m going for more volume, why not go full out!)
I’m going to start using this product today. I’ll be reporting back to you every couple of weeks to tell you what I’ve noticed. I’d love it if you’d join me on this little trial run! Want to save some serious “bank” (as my college daughter says) along the way? Head over to PGeveryday.com for money-saving coupons on lots of P&G products that you probably already use anyway. (Bounty paper towels and Charmain bath tissue anyone?) You’ll want to register to take full advantage of all this great website has to offer. Oh, and while you’re there, be sure to check out the great content in the Empty Nest – Full Life section of their site. (Click on the “Communities” tab in the navigation bar, and then “Empty Nest – Full Life.” to get there.) It’s full of articles on everything from empty nester parenting and travel to fitness and beauty. I especially loved the touching and hilarious slideshow of Essential Memes for Empty Nesters.
I hope you’re having a good week! Bob and I are welcoming two kids back into the nest for the summer this week. (I guess that means I have to cook, right?!) After a special weekend celebrating our son’s law school graduation, we’re happy to be home for a few weeks to get everybody settled and into a summer routine.
