KRISTIN ESS: DRY FINISH WORKING TEXTURE SPRAY
by Ashli Stockton
WHY WE LOVE IT?
Ok, I’m going to be straight up with you…
I live in NYC and sure there’s a Target somewhere uptown but going to a Target in NYC is NOT like going to a Target in suburbia…it’s just not. So, every once in a while my husband and I will decide to get WILD and we’ll rent a car and go on what I like to call “suburban adventures”. That’s another post for another time, but the point is I was on a crazy-eyed Target induced high when I discovered Kristin Ess and her beautifully packaged products. See, it looks like THIS:
Being the packaging fiend I am I threw the shampoo and conditioner right into the cart, the soft touch, the pink color the tonal cap hashtag packaging porn. Then, I decide to take a closer look. I’ve been searching for an alternative to one of the great loves of my life the Bumble and Bumble Dry Spun finish spray (it’s freaking amazing but it runs out fast and it’s like almost $30 - I could be wrong - no time to check facts around here). Anyhow I see the Finish Working Texture Spray and say EFF it I’m high on big box retailer air so everything is basically free right? I’m gonna give this $14 baby a whirl.
Well, needless to say I’m glad I did. I really really love it. It’s lighter than the Bumble one and is great for daily use, plus it smells nice an fresh which is great (especially if you don’t shower everyday, I’m not talking about myself I’m just saying some people don’t shower everyday - what? It’s fine, actually doctors say you shouldn’t because it washes away natural oils, I mean whatever…ok, it’s me…give me a break running a company is freaking time consuming but I still want to look human, smell nice and APPEAR like l put in some type of effort..ugh, stop hounding me!) JK.
In closing, the point is this product is constant rotation and everything else in the line is just as gorgeous. Meow.
