When it comes to beauty products, I like to keep things simple. But let's face it, all women need some type of beauty regimen whether natural or otherwise. I happen to suffer from eczema and acne skin along with my three year old (yay...lucky us...not), and when it comes to going out or attending an event, I want my skin, hair, and nails to look great without the big effort.
As busy moms know, we tend to put our beauty needs last on the list as we take care of our families and businesses, but these 5 items are great and simple to keep up with and most importantly will not break the bank. as I always say, you look great, you feel great, and your days are better. Let them wonder how she does it all, while looking great.
The first thing is this leave in oil based conditioner. I love the silky feel of my hair when I am fresh out the salon but unfortunately it doesn't last. Here to save the day or feel, is this treatment oil. My hairdresser of over 10 years, swears by it. At just $18.99 for the 4oz at HSI Professionals, it is a great buy. The thing I love about it also is, it doesn't leave your hair greasy and heavy. A small amount goes a long way in making your hair soft and silky. Now your hair will look great for that wedding without spending the salon money, after all you're the guest, not the bride. At a later post I will highlight some products for my beautiful brides on their special day.
Second, is this great powder foundation from PowderFx, which I purchased from Sephora. I actually went in for another brand, and came to find out, they did not carry a shade close to my skin tone. Women of color especially tends to run into that problem. Well, the Sephora's assistant was great at directing to a product suited for skin type and tone. This line is made especially for people like me with sensitive skin. It contains no harsh chemicals or dyes which is bad for eczema and acne skin. My color number is B25 and with plenty of other shades for specific tone. Now don't get me wrong, I am sure they are plenty of other products out there for skin like mine, but this one I can vouched for.
Next is this eczema cream, which works great again for my skin issue and my son can use it too. The thing I love about this cream is it is available over the counter and can be purchased from any local CVS or Walgreens. When other creams tend to be to harsh for my skin and not really helping me with my breakout, this cream does the trick and almost overnight so your skin is clear and beautiful the next day.
Next is this FAST drying top coat, which is great!!! Let's say you are getting ready for a party and your polish chips or you need a quick at-home manicure, well use your favorite polish with this China Glaze top coat and voila, instant beautiful nails. Which by the way leaves a high gloss shine to your nails, and in about 5 minutes, you will be ready to go. I love it.
Last and certainly not least, is this line of polish by HD Ruby Kisses, which can be purchased from any local beauty store. The colors are vibrant and have their own shine, not to mention true colors. I hate seeing what is supposed to be white polish, looks ivory in color or that peach, looking almost orange. When it comes to polishes, I am not a fan of one particular brand over the other, however, I want my polish to shine and last. They have a line of great colors to match any color themes.
I hope you enjoy this post, I wanted to do this for a while, and finally got a chance to do it. If you know of any other products that we would love email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need to send a sample, please email me for a mailing address.
With love and have a great Tuesday,
