It's Show us Your Life Friday over at Kelly's blog, and today's topic is Beauty product tips...I'm in my element here....not because I'm Miss America or anything....just because I love taking care of myself!
Skin Care Regimen/Make-up:
EVERY lady should have one. I could hop on a soap box about this one, but I won't. I will say that to not properly cleanse and moisturize your face is asking for wrinkles, blemishes...NO BUENO. Yes, it's a pain in the neck, but so very important! I use Mary Kay TimeWise products. They work for me, and I think I look pretty young for my age (29)! I also use MK make-up!
I've always LOVED wearing make-up. I can remember begging my Mom when I was like 8 to let me wear lipstick...lol! Of course she didn't allow me to wear it until I was in the 9th grade (powder and gloss), BUT, funny story, in the 8th grade, I snuck and put on powder and lipstick for my 8th grade pictures. I totally didn't think about the fact that my parents would eventually SEE the pictures, AND the make-up...can you tell that I wasn't a very good sneak?
I ALWAYS wash my face before going to bed, and in the morning. I NEVER go to bed with make-up on my face! Yes, I use ALL of the above products!
I.love.my.CHI! I don't know what I would do without it. I recently discovered that the Farouk plant is literally right down the street from my job/house! How cool is that?! I love how silky the CHI leaves my hair. I also use the CHI oil on my hair to help protect it from the heat.
For my shampoo/conditioner duo, I use Organix Teatree Mint. It smells so good....and minty! I can't help but smell my hair...don't judge me peeps! (I get mine from Ulta)
I have very dry skin, so unfortunately, I can't use lots of smelly BBW products. For shower gel I use Oil of Olay Moisturizing Winter Relief Body Wash. It has a light vanilla scent, which I love, and it really moisturizes my skin! I just have sensitive skin, and highly fragrant products mess me up! I like to keep my regime simple as possible.
Self explanatory. I use OPI nail products! My favorite colors are Bubble Bath and Cherry Blossom. I've also recently discovered OPI Chip Skip! After what seems like forever, I no longer wear acrylic nails. I now prefer a fresh manicured look, so Chip Skip is my friend! It prolongs the polish for about 2 weeks! Definitely worth the $12 investment!
Oh! and those eyebrows....gotta keep those waxed! I'mlooking at trying threading one day....I'll let you know how that goes!
