I’m excited to do a little beauty and hair talk today! I recently came across a post on Molly’s blog about products she uses every single day, which I thought was a super great idea. It got me thinking about all of the products that I use on an (almost) daily basis, and I realized that many of them ended up coming back to being beauty and/or hair related. So today I’m stealing her idea and sharing 7 of my favorite products I use (almost) daily.
Clarisonic Mia 2 – This is actually a new-to-me product since Christmas (I received it as a gift from my parents), but I absolutely love it. I had been complaining that I felt like my face never really felt 100% clean, and it’s kind of crazy to see what else was left on my face after even after washing.
ChapStick Medicated Lip Balm – I’ve always been a chapstick person, and I don’t know what originally turned me on to the medicated kind, but it is seriously my favorite. I love the cooling sensation that it provides and always leaves my lips feeling soft.
Oil of Olay Complete Moisturizer – I’ve been using this moisturizer for as long as I can remember. It’s the same one my mom used/uses, and it’s always worked for me, so why change a good thing?
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream – I already told you guys about this intense moisturizer before, but it continues to be a daily ritual. I use it anywhere, from my hands to my face (sometimes I slather a little extra on my under eyes and definitely on the hands before bed) and it feels amazing on my sensitive skin.
Kenra Volume Spray 25 – I’m a big fan of hairspray. I have some of the limpest hair around, so if I don’t use any, it’s falling flat on my head, right in my face. And, sorry ozone, but aerosol is the only way to go. I’ll interchange between the 25 and 18 versions of their hairspray, but they’re definitely my favorite as of the last year or so. I’m super thankful to have a mom as a hairdresser who can get these items from the beauty supply stores!
Redken Fashion Waves 07 Texturizing Sea Spray – I guess it might be a bit of a stretch to say that I use this everyday, but it is a semi-recent find for me that I use on days where I want to give my hair a little extra “oomph.”
It works on both wet hair or dry, and while it doesn’t necessarily give me “waves” (again, my hair is as straight as it comes), it does provide a bit of extra texture and volume.
That photo above is my hair from yesterday – not washed, with some texture spray spritzed on to dry hair in the morning…however, the photo was taken at about 7pm and hadn’t been brushed since about 7AM. Don’t judge.
Hair Straightener – I use my straightener just about every day, whether I just washed my hair or am taking a day off, or whether I want it curly or straight (I know, I still owe you guys a video on how I curl my hair with it!). My mom treated me to my current straightener a couple of years ago and it’s great. I think the key to a good straightener is making sure it gets hot enough – I swear, it’s the only way my hair holds a curl!
So how about you guys? What hair and beauty products do you use (almost) every day!?
