Spring Beauty Buys: Hair

2015-05-07 06.28.40Since I got my hair trimmed and highlighted this week, I thought, what a perfect week to talk about my current hair products for spring! While I’m only talking about two products I have (I mean, who am I kidding? I have a lot of hair products in my bathroom), these are two I recently introduced into my hair care routine, and will definitely be my go-to products for quite some time.

Moroccan Oil Smoothing Lotion2015-05-07 06.30.48

I’ve been seeing more and more of this brand lately, and I finally decided to give it a try, and I love it. It’s great for those fly aways, and is a perfect primer for your hair before applying any sort of heat. It also smells really good and doesn’t leave your hands (or your hair) feeling sticky or filmy after you apply it.

No Drought Dry Shampoo2015-05-07 06.29.41

While I love my dry shampoo by Batiste, I wanted to try powdered shampoo, but didn’t want to splurge on those pricy brands that make it. In the spring and summer, I feel like my hair tends to get oilier quicker than it does during the colder temperatures, so I wanted another dry shampoo option for those days my hair looks dirty, but really isn’t. I got this, and I really love the way it smells, and it does a great job of not making it look like I haven’t washed my hair in a while (you know we all have those lazy days…or weeks :p ).

Do you have any current favorite hair products? If so, let me know so I can try those out too!

Bows and Arrows,

Winter Beauty Buys: Lips

Winter is probably one of the harshest seasons for my lips. They are always dry and crack easily, making it hard to wear lipstick. I did find a few things that keep my lips from looking like I’ve just risen from the dead, and I thought I’d share them with all of you!

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub– $9.952015-01-19 16.12.482015-01-19 16.13.09

When I was on the hunt for good lip scrubs, this was the one I kept hearing about. And I love it. It comes in other flavors such as mint julep, and buttered popcorn, but I am like a small child sometimes, so I had to have the bubblegum flavor! And, because it’s from Lush, it’s perfectly ok if you lick some of it off of your lips. It really does work too.

Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy by Fresh– $352015-01-19 16.41.14

I got this product in a kit over Christmas, and it’s become something that stays in my bag. It’s a smooth product that you dispense onto your finger and then apply to your lips, and it creates a barrier against the elements. I put it on my lips before I sleep at night to prevent them from drying out while I’m sleeping, and after meals before I reapply my lip balm/lip gloss, etc..

Sugar Advanced Therapy by Fresh– $252015-01-19 16.45.42

This stuff is like crack for your lips. I seriously don’t know how I go through this stuff so fast, but I do. It’s the perfect balm to put on right before any color, and it really does add an additional layer of protection against the wind and cold.

NARS Lip Gloss in Salamanca– $262015-01-19 16.24.56

This is a really high quality lip gloss that doesn’t feel sticky, yet provides a good amount of color without drying out your lips. I decided to get a vibrant pink color because I wanted to lighten up my typical dark and neutral winter wardrobe. I really do love this gloss and I’m considering getting a different color option for spring!

What are your favorite lip products for winter?

Thanks for reading,
