It’s been awhile since I’ve done a round up of a few of my favorite beauty items so I figured I was overdue to fill you in on a few of my favorite products! I’ve been trying lots of different skin care, makeup and hair products lately and the following are new ones that I’ve added to my repertoire that I just can’t get enough of.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes it can take me forever to find the time to get into the salon between hair color appointments. Usually by the time that I’ve made my way in there, my grays are peeking through in full force and I’m at the point of being a little self-conscious of them (seriously, I think having two kiddos put my gray hairs into overdrive!). Gray Away Temporary Root Concealer is a great way to inexpensively touch up my gray roots in between salon visits while tending to my crazy life. All you do is simply spray away the gray with the pinpoint applicator. It takes a few seconds, is fool proof and washes out easily. There is no mixing, no mess and natural emollients adhere the color to your hair while still allowing your hair to keep a soft, natural feel. At less than $10 for 40 applications, you can’t beat it!
Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask
I’m obsessing over this product, guys! This warming mask is amazingly refreshing and hydrating. I use it once or twice a week when I bathe and it always leaves my skin glowing and feeling so soft and moisturized. The mask is a combination of honey (a natural humectant used for centuries to hydrate), propolis (a healing antiseptic found in beehives) and amino acid-rich royal jelly, it leaves skin looking younger and more radiant. It’s worth the splurge!
Junetics Pure Energy System & Screen tinted HEV Protector
Junetics is a new line of skin care products that I had never heard of until recently. Their Pure Energy products are Powered by the E24 Complex – a revolutionary combination of Gluco-E, Plant Stem Cells, Copper and Amino Acids, Hyaluronic Acid and Silicium, all which help to combat visible signs of aging. Maybe it’s the lack of sleep or time finally catching up to me, but I feel like my skin needs some extra love lately and these products are perfect for some skin pampering. I especially enjoy the night cream for intense overnight moisturizing and recovery.
The Screen Tinted HEV protector is a great solution for light foundation-esque coverage (similar to a BB cream), while still providing full protection from UVA/UVB (it’s SPF 15). It also helps defend against HEV (high energy visible) rays from everyday electronics that can lead to premature aging.
As some of you may have noticed, I recently had my hair colored with red. I love having red in my hair, but I hate how quickly it fades. I was finding that some shampoos and conditioners were stripping the color from my hair really quickly and it was so disappointing. Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner replaces your typical shampoo by gently removing dirt and residue while still moisturizing and protecting color. I have a super dry and sensitive scalp so finding an extremely gentle shampoo alternative is great for me. I don’t have very oily hair, so I can’t vouch for how well this would work on those with oily hair.
What are some of your current beauty favs? I’m on the move to purchase some new makeup soon so I’d love to hear what a few of your must-have items are (especially mascara and dark undereye coverage)!
