Review: Best Hair Brush To Detangle Long Hair

I have always struggled to find a good hair brush that can detangle my long hair. I gotta admit, I do not like to brush my hair. Sometimes, only comb it after washing my hair, and not between washes to keep it a bit more full and thick looking. BUT since I bought the Euro Stil Detangling Brush brush, (I got it at my hairdressers) I actually don't mind it anymore. 
I know, this might sound like a cheesy sales pitch, but far from that. I am not getting sponsored by the company and have bought the brush with my own money. I am just simply impressed and wanted to share it with you ladies.
The secret: It has natural boar hairs mixed with harder nylon bristles for easy detangling. 
Since I got pregnant my hair texture totally changed. I have a mix of wavy and straight hair, and it has gotten much more frizzy. If I don't brush it often (which I never did before and my hair was great), I will end up looking like a rastafarian:)

Review: Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Moisturizer w/SPF 20

I have been testing the Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Moisturizer w/SPF 20 for a few weeks by now, and finally decided to purchase it at Sephora

It is one of Sephora's natural brands and has SPF 20, which is important for me, since I do not like sunscreens.
Perfect coverage for me for every day.
It gives a light and smooth coverage (my color right now is Agent 06) and is perfect for my dry skin. 
I use Tarte's translucent loose powder to set it and it last all day. 

Pricey :(

About the product:

Smooth operator's "water-in-silicone" formula blends into your skin as easily as a moisturizer (and it's oil-free, so it won't clog your pores). The micro-treated pigments diffuse fine lines and wrinkles, giving an even, natural finish.
