You know I am a self confessed product junkie. Just wanted to share a few items I am loving right now:
Moroccan Hair Oil is my new go to hair product. I put a dime sized amount in my hands and rub them together and then run it through damp, towel dried hair and voila….non-greasy, moisturized, manageable hair. I can let my hair air-dry and go curly. I can blow dry it straight. Yes, it’s pricey but it has done wonders for my hair and the frizzies. I can’t say enough.
Bare Minerals Makeup So you all know that I am a fan of this makeup line. After using it for over two years, this summer, I ventured out and decided I wanted to change things up. I don’t know, maybe turning 40 made me want to make a change. Can I tell you how much money I wasted trying foundation after foundation? I tried everything from Lancome to Makeup Forever to Clinique to Laura Mercier. Now you know….none of that stuff is cheap. I can do cheap anything but not on my face. Nope. Anyway, guess who was thrilled about all of my makeup exploration? Mama 1969 who has used it all. After about two weeks with each brand, I shipped it off to her and she loved getting all of it in the mail. I have finally returned to my beloved Bare Minerals and I can’t believe I ever strayed in the first place. My complexion has improved, my skin looks flawless and natural…not greasy, cakey or overly made up. I look like me, only better. I love this stuff and I will never stray again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes to Carrots Night Cream. Since my entry into a new decade of my life, I have been looking for moisturizing face products. I am doing my best to battle the forces of nature. There are so many night creams out there that cost a fortune. $200 face cream? Uh yeah…..NOT! I purchased the Yes To Carrots face cream at Target. It is also sold at Whole Foods. Natural ingredients, no parabens and it leaves my face feeling like velvet when I wake up. All that for under $15? Sold.
Mario Badescu Drying Cream is tied with Moroccan Oil for the best product I have purchased all summer. When I bought my Bare Minerals, I received a sample of this stuff. If you recall, I blogged about my face breaking out due to the summer workouts a few weeks ago. One night, I remembered I had this sample and decided to put it on my face before I went to bed. I woke up in the morning with all blemishes gone. I really thought it was a fluke. A few weeks passed and I had a few more blemishes. I put some of this on my face and the next morning? Gone. I recall seeing that little pink and green bottle in so many magazines over the years and never thinking twice but wow…..who knew? I don’t know if it will work for everyone but for me? The transformation in my skin has been amazing. I ran out and copped a jar and have been sporting my old great skin ever since. I love this product and can’t say enough. It’s sold at Sephora and at Ulta and it’s under $20. What a find!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!!
