The Review: NYM Clean Freak Dry Shampoo



I had always been fascinated with the idea of dry shampoo! It's the perfect solution to keep your hair looking fresh in between washes. I knew that Batiste was all the rage, but frankly, I didn't care. When you're a student and love to blog, it just makes to try all the options just in case. 
So, I was in Ulta, I was on a mission to find a dry shampoo that didn't break the bank. I ignored the huge selection of Batiste. I then come across this brand, Not Your Mother's. It rang a bell as I believe my sisters had bought something from them. There I see their dry shampoo and I couldn't wait to go home just so I could try it out!
As it was my first time with dry shampoo, I had nothing to compare it to, just that it was supposed to keep the grease and shine at bay. I had heard all the horror stories with powder being a problem with most dry shampoos so I guess I was expecting that as well. 
Let me just say that I loved Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo from the get go! It instantly did it's job and to prevent any residue that I've been warned of, I worked the product through my hair for a few seconds...maybe around 15 seconds for each section to be exact. No white in sight! And the product held up all day! I was starting to wonder why I haven't heard about this product before because I was in love. 
Before I used the dry shampoo, I quickly looked up reviews to see if I made a good decision and the only problem with it was that people didn't get on with the smell. Personally, I liked the smell..BUT NYM now have the dry shampoo in a scentless version (which I need to try). 
I bought the dry shampoo around April and I finished it around September/October, and I think that's amazing for how often I would use it. It's definitely going to be something I'll go back to in the future. 

Have you tried NYM Clean Freak Dry Shampoo?

Me oh my am I determined to get my lip products under control. It's basically me decluttering at this point rather than actually using, but these lip products I've had for a while, so I don't feel as bad. Also, to sum up the lip products, unless they stand out to me as not wearing well (fading unevenly, clumping oddly, etc), or the color doesn't suit me, I generally love/make the color work. 
I've also used up quite a few skin care products that I wasn't expecting to finish.
Things I've Used Up:
Joico Color Infuse Red Shampoo: I bloody love this stuff. I claim this is the thing that makes my hair stay red as long as it does. Not only does it have color-lasting powers, but it cleans your hair and actually makes it feel clean. Huge plus in my book. I'm still undecided how long I want to keep my red hair, but if I ever decide to keep it, or go back to red, this is the first thing I'm gonna pick up.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: This was a sample that I foun…

As my stash somehow is larger than ever, despite my makeup ban efforts, I still only buy when I get those Ulta "free gift with any purchase" emails that sucker me in each time. I'm going to promise myself that unless I need a spare necessary product that I'm nearly out of, when I get those emails, I'll stick to racking up my lip balm collection.
What I've used up over the past month: Joico Color Extend Shampoo: At first, I didn't mind this shampoo. But after the glaze on my hair washed out, I started to hate this shampoo. It just doesn't feel like my hair is clean at the roots. Apparently this is a common problem with color friendly shampoo, so I'm not mad about it, but now that it's done, I'm excited to try other shampoos that will make my hair feel like I got it done at the salon after each wash. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (Sample): OH EM GEE. My hair finally felt like my hair again. I see people buy any and all Living Proof prod…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
