Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction.

Product Review: TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner & Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo

tresemme beauty full volume prewash conditioner and beauty full volume shampooWhen I received complimentary samples of TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner and Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo from, I was super excited to try the products out. I waited until the weekend so I could take time with doing my hair to see how it really worked. The catch of using this particular shampoo and conditioner is that you have to "reverse your routine" by using the conditioner first and the shampoo last. To give the products a fair test, I even went out and bought full size bottles of the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner and Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo after I used the sample packages. There were some definite benefits and some definite downfalls for me.

One of the benefits of using the conditioner first was that it did make my hair feel very soft after I washed it out. It even seemed to help with my split ends. Since I don't wear product in my hair very often (gel, mousse, or hairspray), my hair tends to get extremely frizzy. By using the conditioner first, it helped cut down on the frizziness in my hair, even when it was extremely humid outside.

As far as the downfalls go, the biggest one for me was that by shampooing my hair last instead of first, was that it caused my super fine hair to get extremely tangled. Being tender headed, it hurt to comb and brush the tangles out so that I could blow dry my hair. The other downfall was that even though it was supposed to give my hair some volume, it didn't give it as much volume as their normal volume shampoo and conditioner.

Overall, I think the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner and Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo is a really good product. It just wasn't for me. I love TRESemmé products and still buy some of their other shampoos and conditioners.
