October Beauty Favorites
Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask
I heard of this brand (Briogeo) a few months back and became intrigued since everyone was raving about it. I use this once or twice a week as my deep conditioner and my bottle is almost empty after using it since July. Needless to say, I really liked it! It left my ends soft and made my hair extra easy to brush through post-shower.
Sephora Collection Intensive Instant Moisturizer + Cream
The Sephora line of products at Sephora (yes, I realize that sounds stupid) are usually hit or miss for me. Some are really great (like this cream), while others (like their tools or makeup remover wipes) aren’t all the best. I apply this right after I wash my face or take a shower in the morning and it left my skin feeling nice and smooth.
Dr. Brandt Skincare Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator
I’m lucky that my skin isn’t so sensitive that I can’t use exfoliating products like this. I used this twice a week to really deep clean my pores and get rid of dead skin. If you have sensitive skin, I suggest using it only once a week just to be careful. This product was worth every penny to me.
Garnier Fructis Moisture Lock Fortifying Shampoo with Cactus Extract
I really loved the smell of this shampoo (and the matching conditioner, which I also used at the same time), which to me is huge. If I don’t like the smell of a shampoo, I will throw it out (or donate it to a friend/my Mom). I have a lot of hair, so I am constantly smelling whatever goes in it. I noticed after using this shampoo, my hair was a lot more “moist”. Yes, I know we all hate that word. But that’s the best way I can describe it!
Klorane Soothing Eye Makeup Remover with Cornflower
It’s very hard for me to find a makeup remover that works equally well at taking off my foundation and eye makeup. Most removers – wipes, gels, cleansers – work nicely at removing my face makeup, but lack at removing all my mascara. Then I end up with raccoon eyes and a dirty pillow in the morning. I liked this product because it’s made especially for the yes. I put a few drops on a cotton round, left the round on my eye for 10 seconds to soak, and then gently wiped the makeup away.
Bon Vivant Aloe Botanical Mask Pack
Sheet masks are fun to wear, but I always feel so funny putting them on. They are always FREEZING cold and slimy, which makes me uncomfortable. But nonetheless, these masks were very hydrating and easy to use.
I would love to know your updated skin care routine! Also haircare favorites? Do you dye your hair?
