Friday Product Post: Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder


Good morning and happy Friday!

I am stoked to share my favorite product for this week (probably favorite product of the month actually) because it has changed my hair routine and given life to my hair.

I have become an avid YouTube watcher and one of my favorite YouTubers at the moment is Kristin Johns. Kristin is super cute, down to earth, and I feel like I can totally trust what she has to say. I also love that she uses her platform to talk about Jesus and just be real. She is married to Marcus Johns, who used to be a big vine star and is now acting! They are the cutest couple and they bring hope and truth to social media which really, really rocks. ANYWAYS. She did a video on her hair routine (linked here) and I wanted to try some of the products she mentioned because we have similar hair types. My hair always seems to be lacking volume and gets oily at my scalp really easily.

Insert Bumble and bumble prêt-à-powder. This magical powder is a dry shampoo, volume booster, and style extender ALL IN ONE. Normally I would say that beauty companies exaggerate a little bit on their descriptions but this one is right on point.

I have tried some other powder dry shampoos including the Lush Dry Shampoo and I was happy with the results, but it seemed to be a super messy process as the application at the top does not allow for much aim. While it is still a great dry shampoo, this Bumble and bumble powder has an amazing application process and allows for direct contact with your hair while acting like a dry shampoo and giving your roots a major boost. Sure, it still gets a little messy, but not nearly as ‘covered in powdered sugar’ as the Lush product does.

My friend Kelsie, who I visited in Atlanta, also used this product after I purchased it. She has a much different hair type than I do, but still lacks volume, and she loved it as well. Converting people to prêt-à-powder daily.

On the Bumble and bumble site, they mention you can also apply the powder by placing some on your brush and then running it through your hair, which sounds like an awesome idea and I am going to try that way tomorrow! Right now I simply part my hair all over my head and insert the powder near my scalp and down towards my ends. I then just brush my fingers through my hair to make sure it doesn’t leave a white residue and I am ready to go!

LIFE CHANGING, Y’ALL. 

Let’s talk price. This bottle is $27 and while that may seem a bit steep, I have had my Lush dry shampoo for over a year (with the same amount of product as this B&b bottle) and am not even near halfway through the bottle. I used it every other day, if not every day and I can only imagine the same would be true for this Bumble and bumble product. I have tried SO MANY drugstore and high end products with the hope that they would give me the volume this product does and none have come close. So for me, $27 is worth the price of the results.

I just want to say that this post is not in any way sponsored!!! (But if you’re reading this, Bumble and bumble, I would love to colab 😉 ) I just truly love this product and want to share it’s magical powers.

If you try this product, reach out and let me know! I would love to hear your results.

I went to a flower shop (Every Bloomin’ Thing in Costa Mesa) this morning (see the pic at the bottom of this post) and she made me such a beautiful bouquet!!! Fresh flowers are definitely going to be added to my weekly routine. This weekend is full of yummy food + drinks with friends, more unpacking, and photo shoots! Keep up on social media 😊

Have a great weekend babes!!

Beauty Roundup: 9 Beauty Must Haves

Welcome to Forge A Frenzy babes!
I love being productive and I really really love starting a new week refreshed from a full yet relaxing weekend. That includes blogging away the day about my favorite beauty finds!

Mini side note: I have recently joined ClassPass. If you haven’t heard about ClassPass, here’s a recap: ClassPass is a nation-wide company that allows you to take a wide array of workout classes, from dozens of different studios, and places the classes and reservations all in one place! They have locations in all major cities and even some smaller ones as well. You sign up, choose your location, and then begin browsing all of the available classes and their times that work best for you. There are 3 different types of memberships with varying prices that allow a certain amount of classes per month and a certain amount of visits to an individual studio per month. I chose the largest membership deal because I need to get hella toned for this SoCal summer that is quickly approaching. The largest option is $115 a month for 10 classes! With up to 3 available visits per studio. I’m obsessed. I’ve been doing barre and pilates like its my JOB since I started. It’s also an excuse to get a cute new gym bag (;
