Sweet Almond Oil shower gel

Hello my lovlies! I want to start this blog with an apology. The last two blogs for me have been deleted because life has been very very busy and i forgot to draft them before they got published. So if you have been following Hailey and i for awhile now and noticed that a few of my blogs have been deleted thats why.

Im perfectly fine, theres a blog going in depth about whats going on in a life update coming soon!

Onto the blog my ladies!

Now i suffer from very sensitve skin like you wouldnt believe. When it comes to clothing and soaps they pretty much have to be all natural and cleaned with speical non scented soaps and all that. Lately i’ve been really liking Crabtree & Evelyn’s Sweet Almond Oil Bath and Shower Gel.

If you’ve ever baked before, and used almond excract, thats EXACTLY what it smells like, but….Just like almond excract….do not taste it…becasue it doesnt taste as good as it smells.

Hair Care Routine for Wavy-Curly Hair

Hello guys! I have wanted to do a haircare routine since we started this blog and I am finally going to do one! Today I’ll take you through washing my hair and then styling it so it air dries curly without frizz:

1. comb through your hair with a wide tooth comb, it makes a big difference!

2. 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil shampoo by Giovanni

After detangling, I shampoo. This is a really nice shampoo, very moisturizing and it gets rid of any product buildup on your scalp while still being gentle. It is also very affordable so I highly recommend this if you have curls or just dry hair in general.

(2.5.) Juice Organics Coconut Hair Mask

Once a week I use this hair mask! I absolutely love it, it leaves my hair so soft and silky and defrizzed. My hair strands are always dry until I use this mask. Highly recommend this for a cheap hair mask full of natural ingredients if you don’t want to DIY one!

3. Mop c-system conditioner

This conditioner is my absolute favorite. It is so rich and will leave your hair soft and silky. It moisturizes my curls and eliminates frizz, this is the one item I allow myself to splurge on for haircare! I apply this and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I rinse it out and get out of the shower!

3. Renpure Coconut Cream Curl Defining Cream

After I get out of the shower the first thing I do is wring my hair out, then I apply this to the ends of my hair and work my way up to my scalp, so that by the time I am at the top of my head there is very little product on my hands. This curl cream is so good and so affordable, you need it if you have curls. It makes your curls moisturized, defined and they bounce! This made a huge difference in my hair, it never gets frizzy and the curl definition lasts for a few days.

4. Giovanni Leave in conditioner and Styling elixir

After curl cream, I use a styling product. This is a super lightweight gel, it  gives extra moisture to your hair, and it also helps hold in any styling that you do. I scrunch my hair with a microfiber towel just to make the curls in my hair tighter, and this product keeps my curls the way I want them to look.

This is what my hair looks like after it dries!

 

Those are all the products I’ve been using in my haircare routine. I hope you guys enjoyed this post, it is a little bit different than I’ve ever shared before so I hope everyone liked it!

Pomegranate hair conditioner

Hello my loves! Welcome back to our blogs, and Happy New Year to all! I cant wait to see what 2019 has in store for all of us, and all of you! Comment down below what one of your New Years resolutions is.

Before i get too deep into this blog i really would like to thank all of you for follow our journey thus far. Hailey and i always say this, but its very true. When we started this blog we had no idea how big it was going to be, we had dreams of our blog becoming big, but we had no idea how quickly this would all gain, and many of you have been following our post since we were in our fetus stages of blogging. Thank you all! We love you all so much.

Now that you guys are all probably thinking “OMG Christine, get on with the blog”. I shall.

A few months ago i found this company in my local outlet mall. I had never heard of Crabtree and Evelyn so i wanted to test their products out. When i walked into the store i could definitley tell that their products were from all natural ingredients. It didnt smell like Bath and Body works or any of those stores. Crabtree i noticed mostly had hand lotions, but they also sold body washes and hair conditoners. Since i was running low on conditoner i decided why not give it a try.

Beauty Empties: November – December

Hey guys, welcome back to our blog! Today I want to share with you my beauty empties for the month of November and December.

Makeup:

Butter London Plush Rush lip gloss in Free-fall – This was a gorgeous gloss! For me these seem quite similar to Buxom’s formula, and I enjoy those glosses just a little more, so I wouldn’t rebuy this.

LA colors lip gloss in clear – This is the best thick and hydrating clear gloss. I always put it over liquid lipsticks and I miss it a ton! Definitely going to repurchase.

It cosmetics Hello Light Cream Highlighter – I used this up this year. I repurchased it already, I love it. It is the perfect cream highlight for everyday!

Dr.Hauschka stick corrector in shade 01 – I did like this concealer but the shade was way too pink for me. I like the formula but I think I can find something better. Wouldn’t repurchase!

EOS lip balm – EOS is not cruelty free so I would not repurchase! But I also don’t feel like this hydrates my lips much at all, so I wouldn’t recommend these balms.

NYX Worth the Hype Mascara – I love this mascara! I cannot wait to go repurchase it, I like the consistency and the effect it gives to my lashes.

NYX Microbrow pencil in taupe- This eyebrow pencil was lovely. I just ran out of it this morning and I am going to repurchase it today because (not to be dramatic here) I can’t live without it.

Skincare:

Burts Bees Facial Cleansing towelettes – These were really good makeup wipes! I mostly used them for swatches and I would definitely repurchase.

SheaMoisture Youth Infusing Mud Mask – This mud mask kind of dried out my skin, I’m not sure how I felt about it and I wouldn’t repurchase. Continue reading “Beauty Empties: November – December”

November Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today I want to share with you my November favorites, and there is quite a few!

Makeup:

Physician’s Formula The Healthy Lip liquid lipstick in berry healthy – This is a beautiful berry/mauve shade! What I love to do with this is dot a little bit on the center of my lips and then smudge it out with my finger for a matte lip tint!

Physicians Formula butter highlighter in pearl – My skin always looks so dry and dull in the winter, and this has been my favorite highlighter to use, I use it every day. It has a beautiful formula and a lovely glow.

Urban Decay Comfort Matte Vice lipstick in Backtalk – I love this as a lipstick, but this past month I have been using it as a cream blush and I think it is gorgeous! Can someone tell me if Urban Decay makes this as a blush? Because I will buy it!

NYX Micro Brow pencil in Taupe – This has been my go to brow product. It is impossible to mess up with this pencil, my brows always look filled in and feathery, like real hair. I enjoy the definition it gives and it’s easy to use. Continue reading “November Beauty Favorites!”

Tips for Dry Skin

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10 min when you do take them.

Don’t use hot water:

As i said before, theres nothing better than jumping into a nice hot shower, but once again it wont be helping your dry skin AT ALL. Try using warm water instead of scorching hot water.

Go gentle and fragrance free:

Its no myth that soaps and washes with fragrance in them will dry out any skin type. I always used soaps that had no fragrance in them such as soaps with shea butter in them really do help.

Dry your skin by dabbing:

When getting out of the shower most people are very rough with their skin when using a towel. This roughness will only make your dry skin worse. Be sure that your extremly gentle when drying your skin, make sure you gentle dab your skin dry.

Apply moisturizer immediatly after shower:

This will trap moisture and help with your dry skin. Also seeing a doctor about your dry skin. They will be able to give you special creams that will work to improve your skin.

Wear gloves:

By wearing gloves, espically during the fall and winter, you reduce the risk of your skin getting all raw. I also wear gloves while doing the dishes, which helps because then my hands are not getting all wet.

Laundry:

When you go shopping for laundry detergent make sure you get gentle detergent and fragrance free ones. I find that my dry and irritated skin gets worse if i use detergents that arent gentle or have a lot of fragrance in them.

Add moisture in the air:

I highly recommend purchasing a humidifier. This aids moisture into your room and all around your house so that your skin doesnt dry out as easily.

Thats it for todays blog!
