Beauty Favorites

July 24, 2014

Hi everyone!!  How is your week going so far?  With summer heating up and the sweltering temps it can sometime be challenging to feel fresh and put together.  I wanted to share a few new beauty favorites of mine.  I recently cut 6 inches of my hair off.  Yes... 6 inches.  It was looking drab and lifeless and I was so ready for a change and with my birthday approaching what better time then now to begin a new year with a fresh doo!!  With every thing we put our hair thru it's no wonder some of us have any body and bounce to it at all.  I have thick hair so a conditioner is a must.  Introducing S Factor by Tigi Serious Conditioner
 The name Serious Conditioner does not play around either.  This stuff is serious and it doesn't hurt that it smells so good.  I have definitely noticed a change in my hair since adding this to my hair care.  Serious Conditioner is available in tubes or a tub which is a better buy, adds moisture while deeply conditioning your hair to help protect it from the summer wear and tear we put our hair thru.    I recently stocked up with 6 tubes it's that good! 

These.... are a game changer.  I know several of you have heard of them, and for that matter I'm sure alot of you have used them.  I know girls use them because there are too many ooompa loompas running around.  Yes I said it.... some girls turn orange.  Loreal Tan Towels are fabulous and I didn't turn orange. I don't recommend using them for several days straight as I don't know what color you will turn, but I can bet you it wouldn't be pretty!  I bought the body towels and cut each one into 4's sealing them up in a ziplock baggie to stay fresh until the next time you need one.  

 I protect my face from the sun with an SPF 30 and a hat to prevent any more aging.  These tan towels are perfect for evening out your skin tone on your face to blend with your neck and shoulders without the harmful effect of the sun.  They are designed for the body but gentle enough for the face without feeling heavy or clogging your pores.  Loreal Towelettes are infused with Vitamin E and Alpha Hydroxy Acid to smooth and soften your skin.  

Thoroughly cleanse and exfoliate your face, then pat dry.  Then take one of your cut sections of the tan towel and gently rub over your entire face gently making sure to go all the way to the hair line and to the ears and over the chin.  Toss the used towel away and rinse your hands well with soap to prevent yellowing of your nails.  Once your face is dry you may apply your makeup and go on with your day.  Your color will gradually appear over the course of the next few hours.  I am happy with my color and it last about three days before I would even consider applying again.

  1. OH MY GOSH! I'm going to have to get my girls some of that conditioner! They are both at YMCA Camp all day and their hair feels like dirty straw! Thanks for the tip!

    1. You will be so glad you did Lisa. It is fabulous and after they get out of the shower and you towel dry their hair, add a little bit of oil to the ends to help . Let me know if you need some oil recommendations. xo

  2. I have used those tanning towels for a couple years and they are the perfect pick-me-up to my skin! I love the natural 'tan' it gives you without the harshness of the sun.
