Beauty Products to Swear By

Welcome to my first product post! In this post, I wanted to share all of my favorite beauty products, excluding makeup and bath products (for other posts). Here, you can find all of my favorite-of-all-time hair, face, body, and home scented and functional products! These are not all, but my personal top-rated amazing products I have used long term. I would also love to hear your personal recommendations for products in these categories!

Oribe Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray

  • I was first introduced to Oribe products when I started going to BloGo Blow Dry Bar and Salon. I can confidently say I am obsessed with the way these products smell. When I started getting regular blowouts, the girls primed my hair with this product to keep it heat-protected and I am hooked.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

  • Again, this is one of the products I was introduced to by having my hair styled at BloGo. This texturizing spray keeps super-silky hair like mine texturized whenever I am getting my hair styled for an event that I need my curls or waves to hold all night. This product is perfect for naturally-straight hair like mine that tends to lose curl quickly if not primed properly!

Redken Frizz Dismiss Shampoo & Conditioner

Screen Shot 2019-01-12 at 1.25.40 PM.png

  • Honesty Hour- I do not use brand-name shampoo/conditioner 24/7 and am super happy to use drug store shampoo and conditioner! I wash and dry my hair every single day, so I run out of shampoo and conditioner quickly. I have naturally straight hair which actually does not tend to be frizzy much at all, but I love using this Frizz Dismiss shampoo/conditioner pair. I think that this particular Redken pairing smells heavenly, but I can’t use it year-round because it tends to thicken up my hair which is naturally more on the thick side to begin with.

Kristin Ess Weightless Shine Leave In Conditioner

Screen Shot 2019-01-12 at 2.26.57 PM.png

  • If you, too, are a conditioner LOVER, I recommend this leave in conditioner! After a fresh wash and a light towel dry, I spray this one evenly throughout my hair then comb and dry! My hair feels so smooth and fresh after use!

Face:

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber, and Green Tea

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.12.56 PM.png
  • This facial spray is probably my most favorite product of ALL. I could bathe in this spray, not even kidding. This one is good to use before putting on makeup everyday, and after taking off makeup everyday. This spray keeps my face hydrated and feeling/looking cleaner than ever. If I am having a bad breakout, I swear by this facial spray to eliminate it, as well as blackheads. In the summer, I use this spray probably 5 times a day because it’s so good for sunburnt skin and feels so refreshing on sunburnt skin because of it’s aloe content. Even after applying makeup, this spray makes your face feel clean again. There are three different scents to this spray, but this one’s my favorite!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray Trio

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.12.34 PM.png
  • Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater

Aloe, Cucumber, and Green Tea

Aloe, Chamomile, and Lavender

  • Like I mentioned above, these are the three scents to the same facial spray as above! All smell good and serve small differences in purposes. I recommend all, so this trio is a great deal to buy.

SkinCeuticals Simply Clean Gel

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.24.45 PM.png
  • Being an ALL TIME “makeup wipe” girl for taking off my makeup every night, I have recently tossed the makeup wipes for this substitutional facial cleanser. This facial cleanser takes up makeup easier and more effectively than any makeup wipe I have ever used, and makes my face feel so amazing afterwards. It does not burn my eyes at all, so it’s great for my entire face and keeps my face so much less broken out than makeup wipes did, because it’s a much deeper cleaner. I prefer a dry facial feel rather than dewy, so if you don’t like a dry face at all, maybe use this product every-other-night, or on a substitutional schedule.

LUSH Rosy Cheeks Face Mask

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.52.52 PM.png
  • I love this refrigerator-kept face mask by Lush! Not going to lie, this one does burn at use. Once washed off, though, your face feels so smooth and incredible. This one has a light rose scent to it, which I love! I would recommend for use once-to-twice a week.

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.53.51 PM.png
  • This product is the most fun of them all! This lip scrub, to begin, tastes amazing :) I like to use this one for more pamper-use than functional, but it also makes a really great and creative gift for a friend!

Tyler Candles Glamorous Wash Fragrance Diva – 4 oz

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.43.51 PM.png
  • In the name for this product I included the “4 oz” size preference because as great as this laundry detergent may smell, it’s very pricey for laundry detergent! A good splurge a few times in the year, but I can’t justify using it 24/7! I like to buy the small 4 oz bottles and reserve them for when I wash my bedding!! After washing my bedding in Diva, my entire room smells floral scented and my bedding looks bright and clean! This one is a great gift as well!

Tyler Candles Chambre Parfum Fragrance Limelight– 4 oz Room Spray

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.45.14 PM.png
  • I personally love the Tyler Candle Co. scent “Limelight,” which is the fragrance I have in this room spray! If you’re looking for a great room spray to freshen up your home or for use when hosting, I highly recommend checking out the Limelight!

Capri Blue Volcano Candle

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.04.29 PM.png
  • My favorite candle in existence is most definitely Volcano, a medley of tropical fruits and sugared citrus scents! This candle is so great for all year long but especially spring/summer! This would be the best gift ever to receive!

Mario Badescu Drying Cream

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 11.11.45 PM.png

  • The description for this product is: “unique spot treatment. Helps shrink small bumps and surface blemishes. Re-balances troubled areas. Ideal for small surface blemishes and under-the-skin bumps,” so, of course, I’m really wanting to try this one asap!

Bali Body BB Cream with SPF 15

Screen Shot 2019-01-12 at 2.43.46 PM.png
  • I definitely want to try this Bali Body BB Cream because the photos of usage are incredible! I am not a tanning-bed user at ALL, and don’t really like the self-tanner look either. I think this cream will fit in the middle of the two for usage on my face, for a more natural but toned and tanned look!
