Review :: Macadamia Shampoo & Hair Masque and Terax Crema Hydrating Conditioner :: Flat Iron Experts


Flat Iron Experts does not just sell flat irons! They do actually sell fabulous flat irons (see my review of the KQC X-Heat Flat Iron). But they also offer so much more! You can also find all of your hair care needs at Flat Iron Experts including styling products, shampoos and conditioners. I had the opportunity to try their most popular shampoo, conditioner and treatment. 


The first product I tried is the Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo. Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo is a moisturizing shampoo for all hair types and is excellent for dry, damaged hair. The Rejuvenating Shampoo gently cleanses the hair while weightlessly replenishing moisture and protecting the hair from environmental elements. 

Why Macadamia Oil? Macademia Oil is very rich in essential fatty acids. It has the distinctive feature of resembling sebum. The replication of natural oils our scalp produces are for protection. Thus, these factors making it an ideal enriching and replenishing agent with rapid absorption. 

The first thing I noticed about this shampoo is the smell. It smells so good. It smells like aloe vera mixed with light floral mixed with coconut. I also noticed that it does not have a thick consistency like most shampoos do. It is more runny and you can tell it has a very high content of the natural oils. I was worried that this would make my hair oily. It was actually quite the opposite. My hair felt clean and light after shampooing. I normally was my hair every other day. After the second day I don't like how heavy my hair feels and I know it is time to wash it. However, after washing my hair with  Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo, I could have easily gone three days without washing instead of two! My hair was just so clean.

Another thing I liked about this shampoo is that did not weigh my hair down. I have super thick hair and I do not need any extra bulk! This shampoo left my hair feeling light and airy. There was definitely no extra residue on my hair.


The next product I tried was the Terax Crema Ultra Daily Hydrating Conditioner. The description of this product calls it a luxurious conditioner. I could not agree more. The smell alone is wonderful. It smells like a great body lotion that you would get from your favorite beauty store. It is scented with rice flower, shea, bergamot and juniper is the ultimate way to revitalize stressed tresses. I rinsed my hair with this conditioner last weekend before I went to a party. As people were giving me hugs, a few commented that I smelled good! I was not wearing any perfume so it had to be my hair!

Terax Crema's intense moisturizing properties are designed to heal and restore split ends, breakage, dryness associated with chemical treatments and environmental damage (wind, sun, chlorine and sea salt deposits), as well as combat static electricity. By altering the pH level of the hair, Terax Crema opens the cuticle and allows moisture into the hair shaft leaving it soft and silky. You should use Terax Crema daily for healthy, manageable, and frizz-free hair.

My hair is not incredibly damaged or anything, but I do need to combat frizz. I have wavy hair that is very thick. Frizz is sometimes an issue. After rinsing with Crema, I noticed less frizz right away. I also loved how it made my waves more defined. I always try to find styling products to achieve that "piecey look" and I was surprised that this product was able to help me with that! Finally, my hair was easy to detangle! I usually have to fight with my thick hair after I shower to get out all of the tangles. This product worked as an excellent detangler. I also found that it did not weigh my hair down at all. I was really happy with the results.

Finally, I was also able to try the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque. This product is also bursting with all of the same wonderful natural oils as the  Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo. 

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque is a revitalizing hair reconstructor for dry, damaged hair. A combination of macadamia oil and argan oil along with tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts rejuvenate and rebuild the hair, leaving the hair deeply nourished for improved elasticity and shine with long-lasting conditioning benefits.

The Deep Repair Masque is an intense, revitalizing hair treatment and should not be used more than twice a week for best results. I have used it a few times now and I am noticing improvement in shine, less frizz and it is not as dry as it normally is in these dry winter months. The best thing about this product? Soft. That is all I have to say is soft! My hair has never been so soft! My husband even noticed! 

All of these hair care products and more are available from Flat Iron Experts. They always offer discounted prices and you also get free shipping on orders over $50! I just went to the mall tonight and I was in a beauty store. I saw the Macadamia product line on the shelf. The product were not on also and they were much more expensive than Flat Iron Experts!

Connect: You can find these hair products and more at Flat Iron Experts. Be sure to keep up with Flat Iron Experts on Facebook and Flat Iron Experts on Twitter so you don't miss the latest promotions!

Buy It: The Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo is priced at $17.99, the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque is priced at $27.99 and the Terax Crema Ultra Daily Hydrating Conditioner is priced at $20.99. Flat Iron Experts has a lowest price guarantee and you always get free shipping on orders of $50 or more!

Review :: Packing Cubes from eBags

eBags Packing Cubes + OnSite Offer

Packing Cubes. Now why didn't I think of that? Packing Cubes from eBags are designed to help you stay organized and efficient. Traveling is stressful enough. Why not make packing easy? You will get more room in your luggage and bags when you pack with Packing Cubes! Why? They are made from extremely lightweight and flexible fabric. They will hold a lot more than you think they will. Just zip them up and neatly put them into your luggage. The come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your needs. I had the opportunity to try a Packing Cubes - 3 piece set.


This is the largest of the three Packing Cubes. I left it unzipped so you could see how much I fit in it. I was able to get 3 pairs of jeans and 2 sweaters in this cube.


This is the middle size cube. I packed 4 shirts and 2 pairs of socks in this cube.


Finally, this is the smallest cube. I fit my (large) makeup bag, my flat iron and a brush into this cube.


Here are all three Packing Cubes stacked together.


I like to travel with a large tote bag. Guess what? They all fit in just perfectly. I even had room to spare. I love the handle on the side of the cubes. It makes it so simple to slide right in and out of the bag!

Here are all of the things I was able to pack:
  1. 3 pairs of jeans
  2. 2 sweaters
  3. 4 shirts
  4. 2 pairs of socks
  5. makeup bag
  6. flat iron
  7. brush
I tried to fit all of that into my tote bag without the packing cubes and it would not fit! However, with the packing cubes, I still had room to spare! I am very impressed with this product.

Here are some more benefits of the Packing Cubes:
  • Corded double zipper pulls make opening/closing simple and fast
  • Mesh top panel for easy identification of contents, and ventilation
  • Interior seams fully finished for durability
  • Soft mesh won't damage delicate fabrics
  • Webbing handle for convenience when carried by itself
  • Unpack with fewer wrinkles
  • Get through airport security with more privacy
  • Drop them in hotel drawers for orderly and hygienic storage
These Packing Cubes are not just for traveling. What about using them to transport files or catalogs for a business? They are perfect for gym bags. Pack one up with goodies like coloring books and video games for a car trip. You could also use them in diaper bags for onesies, wetnaps, socks and more! The uses are endless

I give this product 5 of 5 stars. I am so happy I was able to try the Packing Cubes. I am already thinking of all of the ways I will be able to use mine. I love to be organized and neat so this product is right up my alley! Thank you eBags for such a useful and smart product! I can see why 7950 people have recommended this product! Make that 7951!

Connect: You can find the Packing Cubes 3-piece Set at eBags. Be sure to keep up with Bags by eBags on Facebook and Bags by eBags on Twitter so you don't miss the latest promotions!

Buy It: The Packing Cubes by eBags are very reasonably priced at only $29.99 for the 3-piece set! They come in other sizes as well so be sure to check and see which one would be best for you!
