Good morning readers! I’m sitting in Mexico right now soaking up all the sunshine beach side with a pina-colada in hand. I wrote this post before I left .. because I’ve really been wanting to share all the beauty products I’m absolutely in love with right now. Not because I’m an expert in this field – like at all. But because I love them so much – and wish that someone would’ve shared them with me sooner. And I thought you might want to try them out too! I really can’t go anyplace without these products.
My favorite texture defining pomade – this soft matte from Kristen Ess is amazing – and smells delicious! I also love that I can pick it up at Target. While your grabbing that – pick up her exfoliating scalp scrub. My scalp gets super dry in the winter – this scrub is gentle enough to use every other wash or so and leaves my scalp feeling so clean. And before you leave Target – the Love, Beauty and Planet MuruMuru Butter & Rose hand cream is a favorite. The smell is light and clean (I don’t love anything super scented!), and it leaves your skin feeling soft and dewy. I LOVE that this product is vegan, sourced ethically and has no parabens or dyes. We’ve raved here before about Image Skin care products – but the two I can’t live with out, the Ageless Eye Cream and the Ormedic Lip Balm. Don’t even think twice about purchasing either of these products.
My last three must have hair products – Living Proof repair leave in – this stuff has helped my damaged blonde hair immensly! I’ll even run a little through my dry styled hair for smoothing and sealing – and dry shampoo – no flaky or powder left over – I really feel like it absorbs any oil and my hair feels clean, even after a sweaty workout! (I pick these up at Ulta, they are a little pricey – but absolutely worth it). And another Kristen Ess favorite – the working texture spray – also available at Target.
I’ve been a MAC lipstick wearer for years and years. I still love them – but started using Kylie Jenner’s lip kits about a year ago – friends, I think I might love them even more. I feel like the color is richer and really lasts. I also love that for under $30 I can pick up a kit including the matte lip gloss and coordinating liner. My two favorites are Posie K and Kristen.
These two oils are skin savers. I rotate between each – and lather up my body before bed or after a shower when I’m staying in my comfy clothes all day. Rose Hip oil is known to help reduce scarring and dark spots – it’s also super moisturizing. You can rub it on your scalp before shampooing to help with dandruff – and it leaves your hair super shiny. The vitamin E oil carries some of the same benefits – it’s a great anti inflammatory, also can help heal wounds – super moisturizing, and has anti aging properties. I use the bottom two shown – and order them off amazon, although I’m sure there are several other great options, just make sure your getting 100 % pure ingredients.
