I typically share fashion "finds" but today I wanted to share some of my favorite beauty products that I highly recommend.
1. FACE WIPES
These are a life-saver. I have oily skin and especially when I am traveling or at work, I need to wash my face. I use these for a midday a "refresher" to remove the greasy build-up of the day. Plus, they have a nice fresh scent.
2. SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER
I have been trying to grow out my hair for almost four years. I think I have finally found a shampoo and conditioner that makes my hair healthier, softer, and has helped it grow. (I found it cheaper here and here, too.) I also mix in different shampoos throughout the week, so I do not use the same one each time. I mix in these and these throughout the week.
This cleaner has been amazing. It recently was discontinued, and I am so bummed. It was the best cleanser that prevented break-outs and just made my skin feel clean. I am optimistically encouraged that this new replacement will be just as amazing. It gets great reviews so far that say it makes you look younger.
5. MAKE UP REMOVER
This is the best eye make up remover - that I have used it for many, many years. It is not irritating and it works perfectly. I even use it mid-day to remove any mascara smudges. A trick I use - is using these to dip in the remover and then go around my eye - works much better than a sponge or tissue.
6. CHAPPED/CRACKED LIP REMEDY
I read about this product a few years ago, and am so glad I did. It is great for dry skin. It is a thick emollient cream, similar a Vasoline, but it works so much better. It is great for chapped/flaky lips. It has saved my irritated lips - I no longer struggle with chapped or cracked lips. I even layer it over my lipstick on most day for a little extra sheen.
7. HEAT PROTECTANT
I use this heat protectant on my hair before I blow dry my hair. I love the smell of it. It smells like the beach - and it is light-weight and not too greasy or heavy. It also adds a nice shine to my hair. (Also, what I think has helped my hair be healthier and grow is by not using a flat iron any more. I have curly hair, and I have found that using a thermal round brush smoothes out my hair and give me a more natural "beach-waves" style.)
8. HAIR SPRAY
This hair spray has the most amazing smell. It is a musky and flowery smell and is the best smelling hair spray I have used. Also, it is just the right amount of hold - not too heavy or sticky.
I got this mascara as a free sample - and I am so glad I did. It has become my favorite mascara. It is thickening and makes my lashes longer.
10. FACE MOISTURIZER
I have used this product for years. It is a light, non greasy moisturizer - so much that I do not even know I have on. I am really picky about lotions and creams for my face. This is the right amount of cream without being noticeable. Also, it has SPF 15 - so I have sun protection.
