Today I’m going to be sharing a review on a new green beauty find I came across about a week ago, and I’m excited to share about it!
First off, let me just say that I have both pros and cons for these products but even with the cons, I would still strongly recommend them.
As I was low on my favorite Pacifica shampoo, conditioner and hair cream I decided that it was a good time to try out something from my local Walgreens. I liked this idea because since it was local I wouldn’t have to drive all the way to a nearby Ulta and because it was also a tad less in price.
I brought home Carol’s Daughter shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in spritz conditioner and waited until the next day when I first tried it.
The collection I chose was Black Vanilla which is supposed to help with moisture as well as shine, and let me just say it smells divine! It smells amazing and the scent lasts for hours and hours and the packaging is very simple but makes a statement.
The shampoo and conditioner are both pump bottles while the leave-in conditioner is in a slim spray (or spritz) bottle. For me, the leave-in conditioner would be the first con.
You might be wondering why, and the only major reason would be because it is a spray/spritz bottle and not a squeeze bottle. I think it is harder in this kind of packaging to really put it on evenly and it can get even messier than it would be if it were a squeeze bottle.
It is also not detangling and has the same amazing smell. While the smell is good, everything together can be a bit overwhelming even for me!
Also, you do not need to buy both conditioners. Using the pump conditioner and the spray conditioner after the shower leaves your hair looking oily and a bit worse than it probably did before you even washed your hair!
It is sooooo moisturizing that you need to get one or the other, not both.
Usually, I’ll alternate between the two every other day, but my favorite is the pump conditioner because it feels like silk and I like the results a bit better than the spray!
On a scale from 1-10, I would probably give the shampoo + conditioner set an 8.5 and the spray/spritz leave-in conditioner a 5. Again, I would totally recommend the shampoo + conditioner pump set to anybody because it works really well, is nourishing, has an amazing scent and leaves hair shiny and smooth.
Carol’s Daughter was a good buy for me and while certain parts ended up not working, for the most part, I think it was still a good decision!
Next time I buy this brand I will just purchase the shampoo + conditioner combo, but I really do enjoy these haircare products. I brought these home from my local Walgreens, but I am sure you can find these elsewhere as well.
I’m not sure yet exactly how long it will take me to finish these bottles but I am thinking they should last for a decent time! Normally I dislike any products where you have to use such an amount that it lasts barely any time at all – to me it usually means that the ingredients are less quality and also means buying it more times in a year so it is not as economical, either.
Have you tried Carol’s Daughter brand before? This was my first time with this brand and I’m curious to see if anybody else has used their products before.
Hopefully, this green beauty post once again opened your eyes to a product line out there that is using clean ingredients that are both green and cruelty-free!
