7 Editor Picked Brands & Collections for a "Take Your Time Beauty" Routine
Balancing Toner / Renewal Cream / Vitality Facial Serum / Moisture Plus Lotion - Broad Spectrum SPF 15
The BEST skincare line to perfect skin tone and clarity! I absolutely LOVE this collection ever since researching Vitamin C skincare and I am very addicted. Vitamin C for brightening, renewing and perfecting. This is my primary night products and I even use the Moisture Plus lotion to apply in the morning before makeup. I will never go without Vitamin C on my face because of the results it has given me. #VitaminCaddict
DEEP PORE CHARCOAL CLEANSER / SELF HEATING ONE MINUTE MASK / BLEMISH FIGHTING ASTRINGENT
I have been using and loving BIORÉ since I was a teenager, amazed at the gunk that came off on their pore strips :) This brand is the real deal and they have the products to prove it! I love using the Charcoal Cleanser after I wipe my makeup off with a makeup removing cloth. I apply the gel to my face then use my Clarisonic to deep scrub my face and draw out the imperfections. Chaorcoal is an amazing ingredient and I believe in it's amazing abilities to pull out deep grim in my skin. The Self Heating mask is incredible, feels amazing and is the ideal weekly treatment to keep my skin balance in check! Especially beneficial after flying to release your skin from the nasty multiple enviromental toxins you subjected yourself to.
The Blemish Fighting Astringent is my only product I use in the morning when I wake up to clean the oily surface the night has created and prep my face for lotion and makeup. It's refreshing, cooling and wakes me up!
Nad's Hair Removal
Nad’s Hair Removal Nose Wax for Men & Women / Nad's Hair Removal Body Wax Strips for Normal Skin
You might of saw the YouTube video of me and Sara trying the Nad's Nose Wax kit for the first time, if not CLICK HERE. I happen to love this product because, yes let's admit it, women have nose hair too! The easiest and fastest way I like to get rid of it is the Nad's Nose Wax kit because it is simple to use and it gets rid of the hair immediately. It stings for a second, but don't be afraid, as intimidating as it seems it really isn't that bad and it works great!!!
The idea of waxing did frighten me and especially going to a salon to get waxing done, so I was thrilled to try the Nad's Wax Strips at home! The instructions and use was easy and not as painful as I thought. When I think of waxing I have flashbacks of my mother's using hot wax on her legs and screaming bloody murder when she had to rip it off...kind of traumatized my desire to wax. I always have trouble shaving the back of my thigh perfectly, so I just used the wax strips and I instantly had hairless thighs...waxing has come a long way since my mom tried it! Yay for technology..and Nad's!
Boots Botanics Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz / Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask
I really enjoyed using a spritz toner to freshen up my face. I love using this when I don't wear makeup and need a mid-day cleaning booster! Cooling, refreshing and cleansing without drying out my skin. Plus I can't resist the scent of rose!!!!
The Ionic Clay Mask is a mineral-rich oceanic clay mask containing a negative electrical charge which acts like a magnet, helping to draw deep-rooted impurities out of the skin without drying. With that definition who wouldn't want to try this product out?! This is a great summer mask because of the extra sweaty, oily skin I get with the ever changing temperatures...plus living in a 2nd floor apartment really traps in the heat! One days I know I was pouring out sweat I love to relax and apply this mask to detox my skin while I cool down from the day.
Angelica Lemon Ultra Foaming Cleanser / Divine Eyes / Fleur d'Or & Acacia Perfumed Candle / Almond Shower Oil / Verbena Eau de Toilette
One of my FAVORITE brands! I have loved every single product I have tried from this brand and I think it is worth the splurge! Quality that works! The foam cleanser is luxurious and contants angelica extract which is well known for it's effectiveness on skin hydration and vitality with organic lemon essential oil for its notable astringent action. It stays in my shower so I can use it every time I'm getting clean :) While in there I adore the Almond Shower oil to wash with because it supplies immediate and long lasting hydration. This shower oil transforms, when in contact with water, into a delicate foam that gently cleanses the body and the scent is incredible! It is my favorite in-shower cleanser + hydrator! I can't express my love enough for this!
The Divine eye cream is a fresh, creamy eye gel that helps smooth fine lines and firms the fragile eye area by harnessing the unique anti-aging properties of the everlasting immortelle flower and a new botanitcal booster of 7 plant-derived active ingredients. It applies flawlessly and leaves my eyes youthful and bright! The Verbena perfume gives a fresh, easy-going scent that is the definition of me in the summer...the feelings I get when I smell the aroma is a very positive and happy feeling. Of course the candle smells just as scented and alluring as it fills my home with a fresh, floral aroma that everyone I have over comments.
Brilliant and flawless products from a top brand.
Argan Hot Oil Self-Heating Hair Treatment
WOW...that's my first impression after using just ONE of these oil treatments! I once again underestimated a product and when I finally get around to trying it I am blown away and left wondering why I haven't been using it sooner.
Made Vitamin-E-rich with 100% Pure Argan Oil, one little tube packs in a ton of hair repair and strengthening powers!! It was a truly delightful and relaxing shower experience to apply to my hair and feel the immediate warming. After leaving it on for a few minutes I rinsed it and and my hair was already noticeably different. I could brush through it easily and it my color looked intensely shine and healthy. In fact, the next day when I went to work everyone was commenting on my hair and asking what I did! I have been trying to get my hair back to it's old self again after I tortured it in an over-bleaching situation last summer....I have found the secret!
CloSYS oral health care
CloSYS Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste / CloSYS Alcohol-Free Oral Rinse / CloSYS Fresh Breath Oral Spray / Tongue Cleaner / Toothbrush
The great thing about this brand? Their products do Not contain sulfates, triclosan or gluten. Another unique feature, the CloSYS Toothpastes are one of a few that DOES NOT contain the foaming agent, sodium lauryl sulfate(SLS) which is commonly used, but has been linked to canker sores. Plus, CloSYS Antiseptic Oral Rinse is ALCOHOL Free so there is no burning or drying. This is an oral care company that actually cares about your overall health and not just if you have white teeth no matter what risky ingredients are used to make that happen.
I found the collection to be very non-abrasive and had minimal taste. If you are a person that needs a strong burst of mint flavor in your oral products they also include a Flavor Control dropper to add in more mint...clever huh? So take your time and take care of you mouth...tongue included (if you use the scrapper! hah)
