Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice (Finlay Donovan, #4)  by Elle Cosimano opens with Finlay Donovan and her nanny, Vero, planning a trip to Atlantic City to pay off some debts, find Javi, and retrieve a stolen car.  But first, they come up with a cover story that backfires miserably.  Finlay and Vero have to be clever and sneaky to accomplish what they set out to do, but will they have to come clean? Thank you, NetGalley, for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice (Finlay Donovan, #4) by Elle Cosimano.  This is one of the books I was most excited about being able to read before it was in stores.  I received the eBook for free in exchange for my honest review. The fourth installment picks up where the last book ended and ties up the loose ends from Finlay Donovan Knocks Them Dead (Finlay Donovan, #3)  . . . so much so that I thought that this was going to be the last book in the series.  However, Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice ends up having a couple of cliffhangers,

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 Influenster.com, 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.
