Care Package Goodies, Pt. 3: The Best of the Rest

For the hair (THE HAIR):

Arimino's Shining Straight and Fiber Grease (Kuri's review here, since it's out of stock on Amazon; for a similar product, try Cool Grease), sharing vanity space with the Bench Fix Professional Clay Doh. Fiber Grease takes a bit of getting used to, texture-wise, but I'm learning to work my way around it; Kuri recommends using this with a bit of water. The Arimino is creamier, and I'm planning to use that on the days when I've got more time to blow-dry my hair.

In the lip product section:
Arbonne Sheer Shine, in Bare. (Cue the squeeing from my Arbonne-dealer friends!) This shows up more as a clear gloss on me, but it's definitely a moisturizing gloss - perfect for those days when I have to spend a lot of time in air-conditioned rooms - i.e. at work.

And finally:

Yep, it's blurry, but it is what you definitely think it is.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer .35 fl oz (11 g)

A trial-sized sample of Too Faced Shadow Insurance! Whee! Unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to test this... but there is definitely going to be a review and a matching "face" post coming up on this one.

Once again, thanks to the lovely Kuri for all the great goodies from this care package - it's been so many weeks later, and I'm still loving everything! Arigato gozaimasu!

Glad you're liking everything!

I find it's easiest to use Fiber Grease on wet/damp hair, but it is a bit difficult to spread out evenly. I usually spread it on my hands then dab throughout my hair.
I haven't figured out how to use the Arimino - my hair may be too coarse for this product.

@Kuri: Thanks for the tip! I was thinking that the Fiber Grease was also one of those products that need to be warmed up by hand (kind of like the Clay Doh) before applying, but I'll try this next time with damp hair. :)
