Happy Friday! This week went by quickly! I have been seeing a lot of good product recommendations on blogs and on Instastories lately. It seems like the change of seasons brings about a need for new products, am I right? I have gotten the best recommendations from other people and I absolutely hate wasting money on a product that I end up hating! So, let’s go left to right in my basket of goodies, starting from the back row. It’s a bit random, by the way!
Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer
I mentioned this recently, but after using it again for the last week, I want to mention it again. After you finish your shower but before you towel off, you apply this and then immediately towel off. There is no wait time, so it must be magic. It gives you a subtle tan and is perfect for early spring. Bonus, you don’t have to apply lotion unless you want to.
John Frieda Blonder
This is for the blondes out there and especially the blondes who have a little “help” if you know what I mean! I have been highlighting my hair since my early twenties. I use this after washing my hair maybe a few times a week. It has enabled me to wait longer between salon appointments. I had my hair hightlighted in November and didn’t need to go again until February. Last spring I went in April and waited until November! Say what? I will tell you it gives you a more golden shade of blonde rather than an ashy blonde. I’m on my second bottle. There is also a shampoo, conditioner, and hairspray in this line that are really great, too.
Not Your Mother’s She’s a Tease hairspray
I seriously looked for this in 4 or 5 stores recently and ended up ordering a 2 pack on Amazon. I love this hairspray so much and am on maybe my 10th bottle? The price is great – around $5 and it holds my thick hair but you can still comb through it or work with it if needed. It smells amazing, too. I hate a too sweet or too strong smell and this is perfect.
I will never live without this. My husband and I both use our own, of course, every day. I swear it has helped keep allergies at bay. We live in a horrible place for allergies and we love this product. It’s in a 3 pack at Costco or at your pharmacy or grocery for about $5.
Maybelline Sheer Stay Matte Ink in Seductress
This was recommended by Kelly of Kelly’s Korner blog. It really stays all day, but it is a matte if you like shiny. This is the perfect day color. I love my Lipsence but I feel that I have to save it for night and weekend! So, this is what I use for day time now. It is a bit sticky feeling if that bothers you.
Cerave sunscreen for face with zinc
Do you suffer from melasma or dark spots? I was told the only thing that will help is zinc. This product does make your face look slightly white but it’s worth it. I put foundation or tinted moisturizer over it to help it not look so white.
Dum Dum suckers
In my effort to lower my calories I have been having one of these after dinner. I always want something sweet! I usually have a clementine and then this is my “treat” while I watch a show. I can make these last a long time! So, I told you this list was random!
What are your favorite products? Do you change them up as the seasons change?
Have a great weekend!
