Item Review: Philip B Anti-Flake Relief Shampoo

Philip B has many wonderful products and the Anti-Flake Relief Shampoo is one of them.

This shampoo is amazing; you feel it working right from the moment it’s applied to your hair. For some time I had a serious flake issue, my scalp super itchy it was unbelievable. I tried the Philip B Anti Flake Shampoo and I was impressed! It worked its magic, and I felt relieved right after. Believe me for someone who wears black almost every day it’s not good to have flakes, it was a life changer.

What this shampoo will do:

  1. Balance, clear, and renew your scalp whether is dry or oily
  2. Moisturizes, calms, and soothes the scalp
  3. Treats dandruff or psoriasis
  4. Evens out skin cell turnover to give you a flake-free      scalp and shoulders.

 

Directions

  • Shake well
  • Apply a small amount to hands and gently massage onto wet scalp
  • Leave shampoo on scalp for two to three minutes

Longer Lasting Lipstick up to 8 hours

I’ve been searching for lasting lipsticks forever, I have purchased matte from MAC, Rimmel and Maybelline and honestly nothing has lasted as long as they promised. Today I was thinking and decided to use my under eye concealer with the lipstick and surprising enough I went thru the day with it, my lips did not get dry, if you have dry lips try applying clear lip balm to your lipstick. I drank tea, water and ate cake and my lipstick stayed! Couldn’t be happier.

You will need:

Under Eye Concealer
Small Brush
Lipsticks
Cotton Swab

Steps:

1. Apply under eye concealer to lips with a small brush, cotton swab or finger tips
2. Apply lipstick
3. Use cotton swab to mix lipstick well and remove under eye concealer residue
4. Enjoy your lasting hours
