This post was sponsored by eSalon, asking for an honest review, and all opinions and experiences are my own.
It’s funny how you swear you’ll never be something and you grow up one day to realize you are exactly that person. “I’ll never wear ____”, “I’ll never eat___”, or in my case, “I’ll never be that frumpy mom!”
Although I’m keeping true to not chopping off my hair right after having a baby, wearing make up most days, and caring about style again, I have become that pony-tail mom who is trying to pretend that awful postpartum regrowth isn’t sprouting out, and that I’ve made time and myself a priority in going to buy the hair products I’ve run out of. Why is finding an hour to take care of hair or other beauty needs such a rough one? Taking tiny grabbing hands to beauty stores, fitting in the time between work and naps, and also avoiding chemicals at nail and hair salons just make it something you can’t typically do until late hours when they are all closed.
Enter a really great concept that saves so much time and so much money for busy women (and men) everywhere, and keeps you looking absolutely fantastic!
eSalon reached out and asked if I’d like to team up for a post, and the moment I heard the concept I was like- YES! I NEED you in my life!
The premise is this, hair color options come in either a $100+ salon visit, or a generic boxed color at the drugstore. Believing customers deserved better, they created a digital service at eSalon.com, where you provide your hair details and upload a photo. Then, expert colorists review the order and create a unique, individually blended hair color formula using professional ingredients that are typically only available in salons. Finally, the color, along with personal application instructions, is mailed to the client, ready to apply at their own convenience- and ready to use on their timeframe (which new moms we know may be 9:00 pm or later!) What makes this even cooler is the price- only $19.95 (£14.00) (they ship to the US, UK, CA, and Europe), and offer a money-back guarantee that they will reformulate or refund your product price.
I had to be totally honest when they approached me about a partnership, I love this concept and I know readers would too, but I only partner up with brands I believe in and would use myself, and I’m a hair dye virgin. I lucked out with a color I really like and bless my mom’s genetics that women in my family don’t go gray until their 50’s.
But guys, here’s the beauty if you’re like me and don’t dye, or if you’re not quite a DIY person. They have amazing salon products that offer at great rates! Because there’s no storefront overhead they can really pass over savings are some awesome products, and they do one-time orders and subscription orders. HELLO helping me actually purchase that leave-in conditioning treatment I’ve been meaning to get since I had a baby. And HELLO not having to go out and select items with a baby in hand- or avoiding it altogether and running out of products. I can just have what I need shipped to my door on a subscription base. I’m loving the convenience and concept, but let’s talk about the products!
