I’ve decided to share with you guys my favorite all things beauty. Well, not all just 10 things that I can’t live without when it comes to hair, makeup, and beauty products. I get asked a lot about my regimens, what products I use, and how I do my hair and it always amazes me that people find insight in my everyday musings. I’m honestly writing this right now looking a hot mess but don’t get me wrong these products work. So here are my top 5 products that I live by, where I get them from, and how I use them. Enjoy!
Avon’s Kiss Therapy- Sheer Rose
Avon’s Kiss Therapy and I met sophomore year of college and I LOVE this on my lips. Here’s the problem, I hunt these like a lion in Africa because they are discontinued through the catalog. However, Ebay’ers have them for reasonable price of $6 min. bid. So it’s a real vintage find that I like to collect. I’ll be sad when I can no longer find them online 😦
Victoria Secret Dream Angels- Heavenly Flowers Perfume
This is my everyday scent. Discovered it one day with my best friend in Vegas and I love it. It’s a very fresh, yet romantic smell that doesn’t over do it when you spray it all over your body. It’s about $12 at Victoria Secret stores and it comes with a set. I like to catch the big sales so I bought it separately. So yes, Reesa smells like flowers.
Sally Hansen Salon Effects- Nail Polish Strips
Raise your hand if your manicures only last 2 days! That’s me. When I stumbled across Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips I was reluctant because I didn’t want to go back to elementary with the press on nails BUT it’s far from it. It’s really easy to do and comes in 63 different colors and prints. I run through a manicure in literally a day and these lasted two weeks without a scratch, HOLLER! You can get them for about $7 each at drugstores but I recommend you snag a coupon from your Sunday paper and get that deal.
Elasta Care Penetrating Moisturizer Spray
I live by this moisturizing spray. For all you naturals out there trying to maintain a beautiful curly mane, this is it. I use it once a day before I style my hair right when I get out the shower and it locks in the moisture and keeps your hairs nice and soft all day long. it’s about $7 at select beauty supply stores. It’s a great staple to add to your collection of hair products if you live in an area that’s very drying. The Bay Area lacks humidity that my hair loves so I like to call it my “summer in a bottle”. Don’t ask.
Free Your Mane Conditioning Pomade
You are never to young to lay those baby hairs down and this is why the Free Your Mane Conditioning Pomade is my favorite. It’s a very light pomade that lays your hair down no matter your texture. I like to use this when I do my blow outs where my hair is straighter. It holds my frizzy edges down nicely. It’s a pricey $15 but it’s worth it. http://www.freeyourmane.com
MAC Surf Bronzer Collection- Glitzy Bronze
I like to wear blush on my cheeks but this summer I came across this MAC bronzer “Glitzy Bronze” and I love it. Especially after a long day in the sun, it really makes your skin pop when you go out for a night out on the town. I apply it with a small blush brush ( made this up) and smooth it over my cheeks, nose, and temples. Definitely helps with my radiant glow.
So there you have it! Just a few things that I have been using all summer. If you like to share with me your daily products please do so in the comment box below. I would love feedback and new ideas!
