beauty products that i love

i am product obsessed. i always have been. i am the girl that actually pays close attention to the ads and commercials tucked into my favorite magazines and tv shows, i could spend quite some time in the beauty product aisles of target and cvs and don’t even get me started on my obsessive love for sephora and ulta.

my counter tops are covered with pretty bottles full of promising potions and my shower is a shrine to john frieda and dove. 
 
 
i love all of my little beauty babies, but there are some favorites in the family:

ALMAY EYE MAKEUP REMOVER PADS: 
{ipads! hehe} my college roomie turned me onto these little gems. nothing takes off makeup better. nothing leaves your eyes feeling irritation-free, moisturized, so fresh and so clean clean like these babies. bonus, they travel really well. {don’t try the blue ones…aka poison!… purple package only!!}

OLAY FASH WASH:
first, carrie underwood is their spokesperson…soooo duhh i had to try it {my beauty icon!} second, their entire line of products {body wash, face lotion, night potion,  etc} is fantastic and their face wash does not fall short of my very high expectations for them. the one pictured smells fantastic and is the perfect combo of exfoliating and moisturizing: spot-on perfect for the summer. their “total effects 7” line of fash wash is also amazing but a little pricey.

MOROCCAN OIL: 
OMG!!! i just recently purchased this bottle of magic and my hair has never seen better days. its silky, smooth, so shiny, so stong and smells so yummy. it honestly feels healthier but i am rocking my way through this teeny tiny bottle fast and magic potion isnt cheap! even being on the beach every single day this past week, my hair never felt damaged or dry. i have an obsession and from what i hear, i am one of maaaannnnnyyyy.

BARE ESCENTUALS PRIME TIME: 
i am a long time devoted fan of bare minerals and if you have spent any significant time with me, i have more than likely convinced you to buy at least one of their products. when summer hit the south i knew that the humidity level would soon be out of control and i wanted a way to keep my makeup as close to “in place” as possible. i love this product, my makeup stays put, it isnt heavy at all, no shine, no stickiness, it actually feels like silk and a little bit goes a long way.

BUMBLE & BUMBLE STYLING LOTION:
lotion..that is more like a gel, that you can spray, that smells faaaantastic and is a wonderful root booster! i don’t need a lot of volume all over, just up top around my part at my roots and this is a wonderful product that does just that! and it lasts all day. b&b products are a new favorite of mine thanks to my great salon, Cortex located in Virginia Highlands.

JOHN FREIDA ROOT AWAKENING LOTION: 
before morrocan oil entered my life, this was my every day go-to product for detangling, strenth, protection and shine. it smells wonderful and spreads through my hair well without weighing it down. i have made a promise to this bottle that i will still use it from time to time {is that weird? that i talk to my products? eek}

OLAY PRO-X EXFOLIATING BRUSH: 
the product that changed my life! spa-day every single morning and night. this little hand-held face scrubber rotates a soft-ish pad of toothbrush-like bristles at two speeds and exfoliates like a dream to reveal sooooft and smooth and clear skin. products work better and you feel cleaner. its a dream tool and its only $25 compared to the clarisonic tool {$250!+}.

For now, those are my favorite products! 


some of my favorite beauty sites are these:

  • Lauren Conrad’s The Beauty Department {it’s LC…and the website is pretty and organized}
  • …Love Meagan {great hair tutorials, if i had thicker hair and braiding talent ha}
  • Elle and Blair {their website is okay, but i like Blair’s little youtube vids…even though they can get annoying sometimes}
  • this is glamorous {for hair inspiration pics, she loves a chignon and so do i}
  • People StyleWatch {for celeb inspiration}
  • InStyle {an all-time favorite magazine and their website is no less}

  1. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.Review my website: louis vuitton outlet store
