Review: EverPro Back2Blonde + Giveaway!

Disclaimer: Back2Blonde sent me this product with no compensation other than the spray to test and review. This post consists of my honest thoughts & opinions about the product!

From lemon juice to Beach Blonde and Sun-In to getting my hair professionally highlighted, I’ve wanted to keep my hair a little blonder than its natural dirty blonde color for about as long as I can remember. (Except for that one year I decided to go with an auburn-y brown color. But that’s beside the point.) However…my hairstylist stopped working weekends shortly after I moved to the other side of the state, and the budget for highlights has been redistributed to health insurance, car payments, and little things like 200 pounds of mortar to tile a porch! Oh, adulthood.

Maybe someday I’ll find a salon here in Kalamazoo, but that day is not today! Or tomorrow, or probably the day after that. Plus I’m trying to grow my hair out again, so I don’t need to go in for a cut 🙂 Thankfully my hair does get a bit blonder in the summer, but that doesn’t keep my roots from coming in sort of dark.  Enter: Back2Blonde by EverPro.

The spray comes in 3 shades; Dark Blonde, Medium Blonde and Light Blonde

Despite accidentally turning my scalp yellow the first time using it, the aerosol root-touch up was super easy to use…and I figured out how to avoid the yellow scalp issue after a couple of uses. I wouldn’t say that Back2Blonde is a miracle-worker, but there definitely was a noticeable difference after application.

See?! Roots are still there, but look so much better! Maybe not quite as perfect as the models in the Back2Blonde how-to video, but that’s okay. I was sent the Medium color to try out, and I’d say it did a pretty good job. I’ve seen so many horror stories of root touch up products, so I was happy to see that the spray looked natural – especially since I was heading to work! 🙂

The only real downside to this product – other than a slight learning curve – is that it only lasts for one hair wash. Womp womp. It makes sense, since it isn’t a hair dye, but I’d appreciate a little more longevity! (And not have to worry about sweating it out/off during hot barre.)

The Verdict?

While I’m not one to worry about my roots showing, Back2Blonde does exactly what it should, and does it well! If you’re looking for a root concealer between hair appointments – I definitely think you’d be happy with this spray. Plus, $11 is much cheaper than an appointment at your salon 😉

Back2Blonde is hosting a giveaway – 25 people will win a full-size sample of the spray! Good luck!!

Heyyy, it’s a giveaway!

I recently received Goodness Knows Snack Squares AND OB Tampons to test/review for free from Smiley360, and what better way to share some freebies than with a giveaway!? Free tampons and BOGO snack bars might not be the most exciting first giveaway, but hey, gotta start somewhere, right?

After the boxes were delivered, I dug right into one of the bars (Very Cranberry) and devoured it so quickly – it was delicious, and at least slightly more healthy than the Halloween candy I’ve already started snacking on. Our poor trick or treaters will probably only get to choose from tropical or original Starbursts by October 31st.

The tampons on the other hand – I just can’t wrap my head around the idea of a tampon without an applicator. I have a box in the closet for emergencies, but the samples will be heading to a friend or two that will actually put them to proper use! A lot of people I know love OB, and I can appreciate that they’re small and easier to transport to and from the restroom, but I just can’t get on board (except for that one time I ran out of tampons in Cape Town right before 22 hours on a plane, and accidentally bought the applicator-free variety from the store, and got me through the flight without any mishaps.)

Anyway – on to the giveaway! It’s open to US readers only (so sorry) and each winner (there will be 2) will get one coupon for a free box of OB tampons (up to $8.99) and two BOGO coupons for the Goodness Knows snack squares, which can be found at Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid.

To enter: Just post a comment on this post with any product you’ve come across lately that you’ve loved! For an extra entry, follow my blog and let me know you followed in another comment.

The giveaway will end at 11:59pm ET, October 20th.

This giveaway is now closed. Sorry! Hopefully there will be another in the near future 🙂

Congratulations to the winners: Amanda, and Tari L. 

Hopefully my next giveaway will be a bit more exciting, but in the meantime, good luck:)
