Beauty | 5 Things I Love

beauty favorites

So far this year I have tried to give new products the benefit of the doubt. Some products I ended up hating, some were okay and some were just what I needed in my life. I am always amazed at how I could have lived this long with out some products, but then again, I haven't lived that long.. Here are some of my current favorite beauty products.

1: Moroccanoil Treatment - $43.00 3.4oz or $16.60 .85oz. Moroccanoil® Treatment’s versatile, nourishing and residue-free formula can be used as a conditioning, styling and finishing tool. It blends perfectly with other products and even speeds up drying time. This treatment for hair completely transforms and repairs as its formula transports lost proteins for strength; fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine; and antioxidants for protection. It absorbs instantly to fill gaps in hair created by heat, styling and environmental damage.

2: Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Building Mascara - $24.00. The innovative bristled bullet-shaped brush is perfectly engineered to work harmoniously with the advanced Natural Cotton Fiber-infused formula to provide high volume, thickness, suppleness and resistance. It uses advanced hair care technology to coat lashes with a “glazing” gel-formula that sculpts, holds, and sets each lash for maximum impact. For super-thick, super-full, super-long, super-curled, super-dark lashes.

3: St. Ives Blemish & Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub - $4-$6. America's #1 Scrub gently cleans pores and helps stop breakouts before they occur. Leaves skin feeling revived, clean and soft. Apricots are known for having powerful antioxidants that will gently cleanse the skin. Great for those oily skin girls because apricot oil is known to hydrate and nourish the skin. TIP: Using an oil based or oil product on skin when you have combination to oily skin tricks your skin into thinking it's producing enough oils. This will make you less oily.

4: Mixed Chicks Detangling Deep Conditioner - $10.99 8oz or $45 33oz. Mixed Chicks conditioner not only restores your curly, kinky or straight hair, it also nourishes your hair, making it healthier than ever. Our exclusive blend includes safflower seed oil which penetrates deep into the root and reconstructs damaged areas for the best, most beautiful hair. TIP: You should try to deep condition your hair at least 2 times a month. Try wearing a heated cap or plastic cap to help the conditioner penetrate into hair follicles.

5: Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola! Eau de Parfum - $68 1.7oz or $88 3.4oz. Oh, Lola!, the re-energized twist on the iconic Lola fragrance. This sparkling and fruity scent is refreshing and light, personifying Lola’s flirtatious free spirit. Last up to 8 hours in my opinion.Top Notes: Pear, Effervescent Raspberry ; Mid Notes: Peony, Magnolia, Cyclamen ; Base Notes: Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Vanilla TIP: This is a great everyday fragrance. With it being a light scent try getting the gift set so you can layer it on top of the lotion.
