Fekkai Prx Preservatives Shampoo/Conditioner & Mask- $20/each, $25 mask
I received sample sizes of these products with an order I placed at Ulta.com. Within one application, the texture of my hair changed for the better. My hair was silky and smooth. The smell is light and refreshing throughout the day. The products are a little higher end, so I would suggest making the investment and using every other shampoo so it lasts a long time. The directions for the mask differ and is only to be used 1-2 times a week. Well worth the investment!
Philosophy Hope In A Jar Oil Free- $40
I worked for this brand for over a year and they really opened my eyes about proper skincare. Again, sometimes the investment is worth the better benefit. Unlike a lot of drugstore brands, you are getting more working ingredients than water and fillers. A little bit will go a long way!
Skincare- (Body Wash)
Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash- $5
Clinique CC Cream- $30
I don't like to wear a lot of makeup and feel like I have "caked on" face. I do keep a bottle of foundation on hand for special occasions, but I only wear a BB or CC cream daily. This CC cream has great coverage and does not feel oily at the end of the day. I apply each morning over my primer and set with powder. It really is a great product.
Garnier BB Cream- $13
This brand is another fav and is a cheaper version from above. It can be found in any drugstore. I really can't tell the difference between the products, so I'll leave it up to your preference to wear at BB or a CC cream.
CND Stickey and Super Shinny- $10/each
I interviewed and was awaiting a call back interview with this company when I was offered my current position. Before going on the interview, I bought this product at Ulta to learn more about it. During my interview process, I learned that CND is a the pioneer of gel manicures and good nail health. It is mostly that your nail salon buys and uses CND's products. The products above that I've tried delivered exactly what it claimed to do and I don't do my own manicures without it.
EOS Lip Balm- $3
First, I have to give a shout out to my friend, Britni, who told me about these little guys. I had seen them in store, but didn't think much about "chap stick." To be honest, I usually buy the black tube of Chap stick because its plain, its cheap and I love the texture and amount of moisture it provides. I bought my EOS in the strawberry sorbet flavor and it feels just like my chap stick, but with a cool girly flavor. My only complaint is the "egg" shaped package doesn't fit well in my clutch or wristlet purse. (I'm one of those girls that never leaves home without my chap stick.) I do know now they make the tube version, however, I've never actually seen them in store.
Until next time,
