Disclaimer: The travel size of the product was given to me complimentary from Influenster. The full sized bottle was purchased with my own money.
I know I have reviewed this before, this is an updated review. I have a
few things about this product that I couldn't mention in my original
review and I also would like to compare the full size to the trial size I
received in my VoxBox.
If you don't know about Not Your
Mother's hair products then you are missing out! They have a wide range
of great products at very low prices.
My favorite product of
theirs is the Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. I had owned the
full sized product before (more about this later), so I was very excited
when I opened my VoxBox to see a travel size of Beach Babe.
On the bottle, Not Your Mother's claims:
everyday can be a day at the beach...minus the sunburn. Beach Babe has
everyone fooled into thinking you just left the beach (you little
liar!). It adds sexy, tousled waves and a lite matte finish to any hair
type. Infused with natural Dead Sea salt & sea kelp this salon
formula has you and your hair on the boardwalk all year long.
Babe is easy to use, just spray it liberally all over your hair and
scrunch it up. That's it! When I go out I like to spray Beach Babe and
then scrunch my hair as tightly as I can into a claw clip (a nice big
octopus claw clip works best), then do my makeup as the spray dries.
It's perfect for when you want to add some style and volume but you
don't have the time. You can also use this on wet or dry hair,
personally I have found it works better with dry hair.
It also smells amazing! It has a coconut-ty tropical scent that makes you want to see it just for the scent.
This product does indeed work, but my hair does not hold a curl or a wave well so it sadly doesn't last long in my hair. This is just me, however and if your hair can hold a wave or curl well this should work much better on you.
mentioned before that I used to own the full sized bottle of this
spray. One day while my mom was getting something from the cabinet where
I store my hair styling products it fell and the bottle broke! Right at
the very bottom of the bottle and product went everywhere. If you buy
this spray keep in mind that it is in a plastic bottle and if it falls,
it will break.
Here is the fullsized bottle so you can see how they differ:
The design of the full sized bottle is a little
more complex (but not difficult to use). There is a tab you have to move
to open and close it. The tab could be moved easily in a bag, so I am
very thankful for the travel size. The travel size has a normal pump and
a cap. The cap doesn't fall off easily so there won't be product all
over your bag. Although I do love the pump on the full sized bottle
more, the pump on the travel sized bottle is more practical.
overall love this product and I will of course re-buy the full sized
bottle and when I use up the travel size I will replace that as well.
There is also a cream version of Beach Babe available now and I would
love to try that to see how it compares.
