Product I Can’t Live Without in Winter…but wish I could.

12 Dec

Chicago is freaking FREEZING right now.  Which means everyone’s heat is set to “Tropical” and means my poor skin is super dry.

Like as in, so dry that I’m super itchy and am scratching myself raw while sleeping.  No lotion I own is helping and its been over a week.  So this means it’s that time of the year that I make my trip to the LUSH store.  Woe is me.  😛

The only thing that has ever helped me survive Winter is Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner.  It smells amazing (like roses) and it seriously makes my skin feel amazing and stops all the itching.  The problem – it’s $33 a 7.9oz Tub.  [LUSH has free shipping on everything until the end of the day, so act fast.]

Here is the story:  LUSH product inventor Rowena made this decadent, rose-scented shower ‘lotion’. She noticed how much she liked the sultry soft feeling hair conditioner gives her hair, so she thought how nice it would be if she could have the same feeling for the body too. With scoops of cocoa butter, cupuacu butter, almond oil and Argan oils, and the fragrant scent of fresh rose petals, this is the most luxurious body softener that ever was (if we don’t say so ourselves!). After washing up, slather yourself all over with this new invention. Rinse, pat dry and revel in supremely soft, rose-scented skin.

An amazing way to use this product is to slather yourself with it before you take a bath and just soak away while it repairs your skin.

You can also use it to shave with…if you are rich.

What are your go-to Winter products?

Skin Care Regimen – Easy to follow guide

29 Oct

Your skin is the biggest organ on your body  – Is it just me or does that sound kind of creepy?  But really – it’s true!  If you want to look and feel your best you need to take care of your skin.  What you eat and how much you drink is really essential to that, so please bare that in mind.  Also, if you have persistent skin issues; bad acne, redness, etc that makes you feel like you don’t even want to leave the house even with a spatula’s worth of foundation on – I strongly urge you to see a Dermatologist.  Your issues might be easily treatable and your confidence boosted.

Ok – lecture over.  Now to the nitty gritty.

DIY Leave-in Conditioner / Hair Perfume!

26 Oct

I have said it before and I will say it again – I love LUSH.  One of my absolute favorite items they have is American Cream.  It’s a hair conditioner that smells amazing- fresh strawberries and vanilla!

 Image

The problem is, it doesn’t really detangle my long hair very well and it’s expensive, so it’s not really great as a stand alone conditioner.    [THIS is my go-to conditioner.]

While driving yesterday I have this brilliant idea, like ya do, to make an American Cream Leave-in Conditioner!   Super budget friendly!  Its pretty much a perfume for my hair that also nourishes.  Gosh, I’m smart.

Here is what you need:

  • Any conditioner you enjoy the smell of
  • Water
  • mini spray bottle

HOW TO:

  1. Add conditioner about 1/3 of the way
  2. Fill with water
  3. Shake
  4. Enjoy

I’m in love with this guys – I keep walking around smelling my hair.  It’s weird!

These products are also great for woman too – Lush is not gender exclusive.   They will also provide you with any samples of the products.  But let me warn you, once you have tried them you will end up loving them.  Sorry wallet.

Lips – Top Picks

10 Sep

Not going to lie but I am kind of a lipstick noob.   I didn’t really wear it until this year (aside from a bad stint in high school when I though dark / black lips were cute on me.)

After experimenting, reading reviews, spending a bunch of cash.  I have decided these are my favorites:

LUSH – Lipstick $18.95: Highly pigmented, cute colors and they go out of the way to help you find your perfect shade at the Lush Store. It also has jojoba oil and rose wax to help moisturize your lips.

Image

Stila – Stay All Day lipstick $22: I received a sample of this in my August Birchbox and I just love it.  Has staying power and feels weightless.  The red shade (Beso) I have is perfect!

Image

MAC- Lipstick $15: A cult classic for a reason.  They have so many shades, so you will certainly find yours.  The staying power isn’t as good as the two previous liquid lipsticks but I still love it.  (especially their reds and pinks).

Image

NYX Matte Lipstick $6:  My go-to drugstore lipstick.  I love the matte finish and $6 is freaking cheap.

Click the photo below to see the other 37 products!Image

I disagree with the NYX eyeshadow Primer they pictured.  Get the HD one, it’s the same price and it works WAY better.

Do you disagree that any of these products work well?  We are interested in that growth shampoo, that seems too good to be true!

As you know we think Nailtiques is the holy grail of nail growth.
