From time to time I like to mix things up and stray from the standard format. I rarely blog about beauty-related topics but sometimes I have things to share. Personally, I love receiving recommendations for beauty-related products via word of mouth so here are five of my new beauty loves. I haven’t done one of these posts since February so this should be fun!
Aveda Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother – I used this while I was visiting my parents at the beach. You apply it post-shower and it helps smooth the hair and protect against humidity. Given that I didn’t use a blow drier once and embraced my natural curls, this product was a life saver!
Schick Xtreme3 Sensitive – I just picked up these razors and they are my new favorite. They provide a close shave and don’t leave me irritated. I don’t have to go over any areas twice and they’re easy to hold and handle.
Neosporin – while we’re on the topic of shaving, one of my estheticians recommended Neosporin for post bikini wax to reduce irritation and the chance for ingrowns and I’ve been hooked ever since. It’s a summer beauty staple for me now. Try it!
Laura Mercier Face Polish – in my last beauty post I mentioned that I had switched from Bobbi Brown to Laura Mercier. I love that my Laura Mercier reps always send me home with samples, one of which was this amazing exfoliator. I quickly returned to buy a full tube and use it several times a week now. I swear that it’s helped with clogged pores and to give me a little more of a glow.
Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria Rollerball – I spent quite a while in Ulta recently sampling new perfumes. I wanted a rollerball because I can never commit to using a whole bottle of a fragrance. It’s also perfect for throwing in my gym bag. Note, I have the “Forbidden” version of this fragrance and the rollerball is not available on Ulta anymore.
What beauty products are you loving?
And a selfish side note while we’re on the beauty topic, can anyone recommend a hair dryer? Mine recently died in a burst of flames and smoke (seriously) and I’m in desperate need of a new one. I’m willing to splurge a little.
