Review of the January H2BAR Box

The perfect way to start 2018!

Happy New Year, you beautiful redheads!

There is not a better way to celebrate 2018 than with a fabulous new H2BAR Subscription Box. Everything inside the January box is something that can pamper and refresh your face, hair & body to get things happy and healthy for the year to come.

So what do we have to work with? Let’s see….

1. Bed Head Colour Goddess Oil Infused Shampoo & Conditioner, $30 value:

Everyone knows redheads—natural and enhanced—have issues with many retail hair products because so many of them contain harsh chemicals. Bed head products have always been a favorite of mine, especially for styling. I was super psyched to see this new Colour Goddess shampoo and conditioner. Infused with vitamins B5 & E, sweet almond & coconut oil as well as keratin, these products will treat your vibrant red locks with love. The shampoo lathers so well and smells divine. The conditioner coats each strand for added strength and the amount you need is not very much. I absolutely love these items and guarantee I will be getting them again.

2. Giovanni Cosmetics Conditioning Hair Mask, $3 value:

Even when using the proper shampoo and conditioner (like above), there are times when we just need to give our hair a little extra pampering, especially during this cold air/dry heat season. With all the great benefits that coconut can give our skin and hair, I was not surprised on how great my hair felt after I used the Giovanni Cosmetics hair mask for the first time. It is a great repairing conditioner since—unlike many other deep conditioners—you actually apply it from roots to ends. Plus what is also great is you can put it on BEFORE you wash your hair OR even before you go to sleep!

The coconut milk coats each strand of hair to coat it for indoor and outdoor protection from appliances and weather, keeping the hair healthy from the root down. Of course, it smelled great, and didn’t feel sticky or heavy at all and it rinsed easily. This is a product that keeps showing its benefits for several days!

3. Arvazallia Hydrating Hair Mask, $3 Value:

In case you haven’t realized it, this is definitely the season where your hair needs a little extra attention. Dry, indoor heat or cold outside hair can really strip the natural oil from those red tresses. Add on a warm winter hat or fleece hood and you’ve taken out even more oils. A good hair mask like Arvazallia’s will revitalize your hair leaving it softer, silkier and easier to manage. Infused with hydrating Argan Oil, this weekly treatment doesn’t leave your hair feeling heavy and lifeless… it actually keeps it looking and smelling fabulous.

4. Pai-Shau Biphasic Infusion Sample, $10 Value:

Yes, the Pai-Shau Biphasic was in the December box, and if you got one, you have probably fallen in love with it already. If you are using this for the first time this month… you will fall in love with it very soon! Many “after shampooing” leave-in products have a tendency to really weigh my hair down. Not this one. It allows me to detangle without pulling, fights off frizzies, and keeps my hair super soft and shiny. Not to mention, this product helps repair and prevent damage to your ends from excessive heat or styling products. It’s perfect for cold weather effects.

5. Skin Laundry 3-in-1 Cleansing Oil, $3 Value:

I am a big fan of cleansing oils, especially since this time of year tends to make my skin a bit more dry than usual. Skin Laundry cleans, removes makeup (safe for eye makeup too), and hydrates. Just put a little bit into your damp hands and massage into dry skin for about a minute, remembering to gently around the eye area). Rinse with warm water or remove with a damp cleansing cloth to leave your skin clean, soft and hydrated in one step.

6. Derma E Anti-Wrinkle Scrub, $3 Value:

We are all trying to fight the signs of aging in any way possible. We use creams, oils and even gels. The one thing we often forget about is exfoliating. It is important to rid your redhead skin of dead skin cells so the freshest, newest layer of skin can get to the top. That’s your “youngest” skin, and exfoliating will help you get just that. What is really nice about this scrub is it contains anti-aging ingredients so you can treat your skin WHILE you exfoliate. Pamper your skin once or twice a week with this scrub, and it won’t dry out or irritate your skin. In fact, it will infuse Vitamin A into your face to stimulate cell production. As the dirt, impurities and old skin cells go down the drain, the Derma E Scrub will encourage a fresh, healthy complexion. Derma E is a fabulous brand that has been featured in the H2BAR box before with great products, and this one will not disappoint you either.

7. Nourish Savanah Bath Fizzies, $3 Value:

Bath fizzies are the bomb right now (pardon the pun). Lounging back after a long day in a bath full is just what some of us love. With Nourish Savanah’s Bath Fizzies, you get a dose of enriching nutrients from natural butters and oils while also relaxing and refreshing your senses. Even if you aren’t a bath kind of person, just letting one of these “fizz” while you take a shower is still a perfect way to just unwind and destress. Ahhhh…..

8. Sorme Cosmetics Tasty Tubes Sheer Shiny Lip Gloss, $8 Value:

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge lippie addict. Sorme Cosmetics Tasty Tubes is a perfect “leave it in your purse” lip color. Filled with plant botanicals, minerals & healing vitamins, this sheer gloss will not just give your lips shine but nourish them as well. This little gem has soft tint that goes with anything. Easy to carry with you in a pocket or purse, this sassy lippie will surely give you a glossy, sexy pout with a hint of color.

9. H2BAR Hair Accessories, $7.50 Value: 


Don’t you think all of us redheads should be able to get pretty hair necessities anywhere? Unfortunately, we can’t. And our people at H2BAR know that! All of their hair accessories blend in with our different shades of red so we can all have fabulous styles that keep our hair looking red carpet ready.
