Philosophy and Bumble & Bumble

Sephora Haul
I had a Sephora coupon code a while back that I had to use. No one would dare let a good coupon go to waste right? LOL. I love to have these codes because it is my opportunity to purchase something totally different and something I usually would not purchase. Since I am natural and wearing my own hair now, I figured I would try some hair products. 
Bumble and Bumble always has good reviews so I decided to pick that. I also had my Birthday offer still available from the spring of 2011 so I cashed that in too. 
Bumble & Bumble shampoo, conditioner, and masque
Bumble and Bumble Blow Dry
After using all of these items, it was hard to really notice a difference in the beginning. Reason being is I usually do not wash my own natural hair since I have had extensions for over an year and go to the salon regularly. What I decided to do is use the products but use another in between so I can see if I noticed a difference (i.e. Bumble and Bumble, the Biolage' line, then back to Bumble and Bumble). 
ResultsMy hair has no breakage, and blow dried straight. It was almost bone straight. I am not sure if it was the BB products I used, my Denman D79 Straightening Brush, or a combination of both. I purchased the mini size of Bumble and Bumble (except Blow Dry) and I am glad that I did. I love Biolage' so much better. When using Biolage', my hair instantly feels so soft. It is not the same for my BB items. Blow Dry is a keeper. Alone or along with my Denman Brush, I love it!

I received my first Philosophy item. I guess it's a first of a few items for me. 

This Shower Gel smells like cake. So lush!
Results: This was a GREAT Birthday Gift, even though I am just decided to pick it up almost a year later. Ooops! It does not Moisturize as much as I would prefer but the smell is amazing and I finally have experienced Philosophy finally and it was free courtesy of Sephora ♥
Usually I do not get the samples I select, but I did this time.  Yay!
Results: I used the Ojon hair oil and all you need it a dot. When my stylist does my hair, she uses no products after my wash and conditioner so I try to do the same. A lot of products can weigh the hair down so I try to avoid that.

looks like the birthday gifts have changed as I got an email saying it's for some lip balm or something. I'm tempted to make an order to get it and maybe my 100 point gift. Know any current coupon codes?

That was my 1st BDay gift from them but I agree that it's a pretty good freebie. LOL. Not sure of any codes because I haven't purchased in a while, but the code FIRM gives you a sample of Algenist/per my last notification. @Bloo
