Friday Favorites: Beauty & Hair Edition | PUR Eye Shadow Palette Giveaway!

February flew by in a flash (and I’m not complaining). Usually I feel like February drags by as I anxiously await spring, so I’m more than thrilled that we are one month closer to warmer and sunnier weather.

This month I came across so many fun and new beauty, skin care and hair products! I definitely have some new favorites and must-haves and I can’t wait to share a few of my favorites with you.

Disclaimer: I may have been gifted some of the below products in exchange for review consideration. All thoughts and opinions are my own and I wouldn’t recommend products that I didn’t truly enjoy. Links may be affiliate links.

Skin Care

Comodynes Clarifying Wipes

I’ve heard so many awesome things about the Comodyne brand for awhile so I was so excited to give these towelettes a try. These AHA loaded towelettes are perfect for complexions that need a little TLC. After the cold winter months, my skin was feeling a bit dull. These facial peeling towelettes were perfect for leaving my skin smooth and glowing in one quick minute. I’m definitely planning on checking out some of their other products (especially the BB Color Skin Perfector).

Ola Tropical Apothecary Body Butter

This body butter leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth, but the number one thing I love is the divine scent! The Rainforest blend is my favorite. It transports me to the islands and reminds me of lounging on the beach while sipping on a fruity coconut drink. I can’t get enough! Products are all made in Hawaii, natural and organic ingredients and eco-friendly too!

Rituals Energy Bubbles


I love my baths and with the addition of Rituals Energy Bubbles (love the Indian Rose & Himalaya Honey scent), I’ve been trying to squeeze them even more. I love how well that this bath foams bubbles up. Usually I find that I have to use a third of a bottle to get a full tub of bubbles, but this product bubbles likes crazy without using a ton. Pick this up mama’s, grab a bottle of wine, light some candles and totally melt into your bath.

Hair Care

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler

This two in one product (dryer and hair brush) has saved me SO much time. First, I’m totally incompetent when it comes to doing hair. The process of trying to dry my hair with a dryer and using a brush in the other hand just isn’t something I’m good at (especially the back of my hair). I love that this totally makes it super simple to straighten my curly hair in so little time (under 10 minutes). It leaves my hair straight, smooth and allows me to use my straightening iron less. You need this hair dryer in your life!

Unwash Dry Shampoo

This is my savor since I tend to only wash my hair once or twice weekly! I spray this dry cleanser through my roots and all oil is gone, I have some extra volume, shine and the scent makes me feel refreshed. Second day (or third or fourth day), has never looked or smelled better.

Keranique Life & Repair Treatment Spray

This spray is perfect for postpartum mamas! After both kids, I went through a crazy hair loss stage that left me feeling like I had some bare spots. This spray is perfect because it makes thinning hair feel thicker and fuller by forming a sheer film on each hair. The extra volume at my roots was such a great asset during this awkward hair stage.


Lauren B Nail Polish


I love having a healthier to gel manicures and this polish is it! It applies easily, there are so many cute colors (City of Angels is my favorite), stays on well and it leaves a mirror like finish. Each formula is non toxic, eco- and vegan-friendly too!

Oxygenetix Foundation

If you are an active woman, this foundation is for you! I sweat like crazy, especially when running or in my hot yoga classes. I absolutely love this makeup because not only does it provide great coverage, but it’s sweat proof! It doesn’t clog pores, is oil and fragrance free and even has UVA/UVB protection. I’m sold on this and will definitely continue to use this in the future!

PUR Trolls Palette

This eyeshadow palette is so fun! I normally stick to neutral colors, but I love the splash of subtle and bold colors in this palette (16 colors) inspired by the Trolls movie. I’ve been a fan of PUR products for awhile (love the Selfie palette and use it daily)  because they are highly pigmented, stay on extremely well and are easy to blend. It’s exclusively being sold at Kohl’s so snag one while you can (or keep reading for a chance to WIN one)!

Baby Care

Live Clean Baby

Live Clean products are amazing. Aside from baby products, they also have body washes, hair care, hand soaps and much more. I love all the ingredients and chemicals that are NOT in them. There are many nasty chemicals in so many health and beauty products. I’ve been trying to clean our house, especially skin care and body products that we use, of products with questionable ingredients. It’s shocking what I’m finding is in a few of my favorite products. I love using these products on my kiddos! All formulas are certified organic, tear-free and pediatrician tested. Also, they’re available at Target!



I have a PUR Dreamworks Trolls Eye Shadow Palette to giveaway to one of my readers! To enter, let me know below what is your must-have beauty and/or hair product that you can’t live without. Keep an eye on my Instagram this weekend too as I’ll be offering additional chances to win there too! U.S. only please.


Spread the love

    That body butter looks amazing! The one product I can’t live without is deep conditioner. I have thick curly hair, so it helps me sift through my hair without tangles. Shea Moisture is my favorite brand.

    My must have beauty product is lip balm. I might be addicted. I love the beauty balm from Victoria’s Secret, but they keep discontinuing it! I am very intrigued by the body butter you mentioned! I live in the desert and am always dry!
