BRAND SPOTLIGHT: CARRELLO BY CURRIE
Disclaimer: This post contains products sent to me by a brand or PR company in exchange for a review.
However, all words and opinions are my own, as always.
As I'm getting older, I'm becoming more discerning about what I put on my face, hair, and body. I lean towards products packed with nourishing ingredients that lock in moisture and luster while fighting the signs of aging. And if those products are natural and organic, all the better. So when I was contacted by the gang at Carrello by Currie to see if I was interested in exploring their brand of organic hair and skincare products, it's no surprise that my answer was an enthusiastic "yes". Today we'll be taking a look at an innovative brand that combines modern science with traditional Italian beauty wisdom.
The Carrello by Currie brand consists of two unique product ranges: the restorative Olive and Lavender line created with olive oil sourced directly from Italy, and the Carrello Beauty line featuring an assortment of plant extracts to help keep you nourished from top to toe. Gentle and expertly crafted, both ranges are all-natural and sulfate-free, exemplifying the brand's core value, "Kind as Nature".
The first products I trialled were the Olive and Lavender Daily Shampoo and Conditioner from the line of the same name. Suitable for everyday use, this shampoo and conditioner are both gentle and non-stripping. Formulated without silicon, parabens, sulfates, and other damaging ingredients, these are fantastic products for the health conscious beauty consumer. The olive oil provides both hydration and shine, whilst the lavender does wonders for the mind, body, and soul. This is the perfect duo for those with thin or fine hair looking for nourishment without the weight.
Next, I tested the Olive and Lavender Treatment Oil for Hair. Just a few spritzes on damp hair before a blow-out leaves you with silky, lustrous, frizz-free tresses. This stuff is incredibly potent and less is definitely more. Too much on will leave your hair feeling greasy and heavy. For fool-proof application every time, I pump a couple sprays into the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, and apply through the lengths and ends of my hair. This ensures even distribution and the best results.
The last item from this range that I gave a whirl was the Olive and Lavender Lip Balm. Lightweight, non-greasy, and packed with things like cocoa butter and shea butter, this lip balm oil is extremely nourishing. I like to dab this on well scrubbed lips and then gently massage it in, following it up with a more emollient balm to seal in the moisture. Think of it as a serum for your lips!
The final two products I received were the Daily Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner from the Carrello Beauty line. A gorgeous concoction of olive oil, honey, aloe vera, and other goodies, this duo is the true star of the show. These leave my hair feeling soft and supple, and smell exactly like a sunny day at the beach (a major plus!). And I'm extremely grateful for the inclusion of a pump as they are much easier to maneuver in the shower than twist or squeeze tops.
After giving each of these products a thorough test, I can wholeheartedly say that this brand is a fantastic option for all-natural beauty lovers. Carrello by Currie proves that you don't have to sacrifice natural solutions in order to have top quality products. You can purchase these products for yourself, as well as an assortment of body care items, via their website/b>. Or if you are in Pennsylvania or Delaware, you can pop into one of the Currie Salon and Spas for a lush pamper with all the products you see here! Fabulous!

The Problem Solver: Troubled skin? This is the facial for you! It begins with a pore-opening steam, followed by a deep, gunk-busting cleanse. Stubborn blackheads won't stand a chance against our gentle but effective extraction process. Next, a light, exfoliating peel will dry up any existing breakouts and help prevent future eruptions. We'll top everything off with a hydrating clay mask to lock in moisture and deliver a nourishing dose of vitamins. Because acne can be pretty tenacious, we recommend a four-week regimen which is why we offer a package of four facials at a discounted price!
The Nourisher: This facial is a must for all skin types and is especially useful before a big event. It begins with a steam and cleanse to clear out impurities. Any residual blackheads will be extracted before we apply a vitamin-packed clay mask to leave your face soft, smooth, and pimple-free for your big night! Of course, this is not just a special occasion facial; it is a great option for routine maintenance.
The Face-less Facial: This treatment is designed to tackle two other acne troubled spots: your back and chest. Steam is used to open pores before a deep cleanse lifts trapped build-up. Particularly stubborn blackheads will be removed during the gentle extraction process. Then, an exfoliating peel sloughs off pore-plugging debris and dries up existing blemishes. We round-out the treatment with a soothing clay mask that delivers a hearty dose of vitamins and locks in moisture.
Currie Hair Skin Nails, the leader in the beauty industry, recently launched a new service: eyelash extensions. Currie is committed to providing beautiful, flawless eyelash extensions to enhance any woman's natural beauty. It all started with partnering with the right eyelash specialist: Jill Volko. Jill has built a reputation in the Tri-State area for providing safe, fast, natural- looking beautiful lashes. Using superior products, she hand picks from different lines. After many years of perfecting her craft, Jill is able to provide our guests with award-winning perfect lashes.
"Semi-permanent lashes, also known as individual eyelash extensions, are eyelashes applied with an FDA approved adhesive with a stronger bond. Generally, a single lash is applied to each natural lash. When applied properly, neither the extension lash nor the glue should touch the eyelid. The bond is designed to last until the lashes naturally fall out, though the extensions may fall out faster if one uses oil-based eye makeup remover or rubs eyes regularly, as oil weakens the bond between the glue and the lash. Eyelash extensions create eyelashes that remain on for approximately 3-4 weeks with their natural growth and shedding cycle. To keep the eyelashes full, one must maintain them by refilling monthly. Eyelash extensions are waterproof and give the appearance of having mascara on without the messy clumps and smudging of makeup. To keep your eyelashes maintained, one should not rub on their eyes or wear any mascara. Instead, you should use oil-free make up removal wipes, eyelid cleanser, and avoid rubbing around the eye area.Eyelash extensions come in various lengths, colors and thicknesses, from natural-looking, to glamorous, as well as dramatic. It usually takes an hour to two hours to attach a full new set and an average person might have anywhere from thirty to eighty lashes per eye. The variance in the number of lashes accounts for the difference in how long it takes to apply them. Eyelash extensions usually last around 3-4 weeks, after which you will notice that the eyelash extensions have started falling out or thinning. Maintaining a full set of lashes will require refill service approximately every 3-4 weeks."
