Favorite Old + New Hair and Face Products

**This is NOT a sponsored post and there are NO affiliate links. These are strictly my opinions on products I love.**

I'm a girly girl, and I love all things that have to do with hair and makeup. A surefire way to get me to click on your post is to write a list of some of your favorite products, or some new products you're trying for the first time. When I was in high school I used to watch infomercials for hair and makeup products, for fun. 

~Hair~
 //Ion Color Defense Clarifying Shampoo. The girl who does my hair, Amber, has been telling me I need to use a clarifying shampoo ever since she first did my hair nearly a year ago. She told me a clarifying shampoo is a great idea for anybody to use because it removes build up from other products (hair spray, gel, etc). I use a LOT of hairspray and thickening spray so finally I decided I just needed to bite the bullet and get some.

I got it at a Sally Beauty Supply Store in the ghetto. Seriously, I think there was a drug deal slash robbery going down right outside before I walked in. I didn't research this product before buying it, I just went in and asked the saleswoman for a clarifying shampoo and this is what she showed me. I use it every other shampoo and I've got to say, I LOVE IT. My hair feels so light and clean! Definitely recommend this product. On alternate days I just use regular shampoo, and I buy whatever is cheapest at Target.

//Ion Keratin Smoothing Masque. This is the first fancy product my hairstylist suggested to me. I started off using it 2-3 times a week because of how dry and brittle my ends were. Now, I use it 1-2 times a week, depending on how often I wash my hair. My hair feels so much softer since I started using this! I leave it on for 4-5 minutes, or 2-3 songs on the Ella Henderson station on Pandora.

//Ion Keratin Conditioner. I use this every day that I don't use the keratin masque. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. It feels amazing and smells so so good! Plus, it has a pump top which is the most genius invention in the universe.

//BioSilk Silk Therapy. I've sworn by this product for close to ten years. I put it on the ends of my hair every single time I wash it and it also smells amazing and makes my hair feel silky smooth. If there's one product you go out and buy, make it this one. You can get it at Target for like $40/bottle or you can almost always find it at a TJ Maxx or Ross for under $20.



 ~Face~

//L'Oreal Revitalift Eye Cream. Last year I started noticing these cute little wrinkles around my eyes and I was like I HAVE TO NIP THIS IN THE BUD. I've been trying different eye creams since Christmas, and so far I really like this one. I don't love that it comes in a tub, because I've read that tubs contain more bacteria than pumps, but with a tub I feel like you can really get everything out of it. So for now, I'm on board with this product.

//Lumigan. This is by far the Holy Grail of beauty products. I've been using Lumigan for a few years now and it's the best thing in the world. It's the generic form of Latisse, and it's ridiculously expensive. The only reason I'm able to use it regularly is because I have a friend who gets free samples at her job (she works for an eye doctor) and she shares with me. Lumigan is really for glaucoma, but I use it as eyelash steroids. I use one drop on each eyelash line per night, and my lashes are fuller, thicker, and stronger than EVER. That picture on the bottom left where I have red eyes and I also look like I have a bruise (IDK why it looks like that, I guess my eye cream actually sucks) is my lashes with nothing on them.

HOWEVER. If you stop using Lumigan for longer than a few days your eyelashes will fall out. I REPEAT: YOUR EYELASHES WILL FALL OUT. This happened to me twice because I was in between samples and it was awful. I literally had 6 eyelashes on each eye. They grew back just fine, but for a couple of weeks I thought my life was over.


//Rare Minerals Skin Revival Treatment. This product is kind of weird. I found a sample in my car a few weeks ago and started using it at night as directed, and I really loved it. It made it so when I went to bed I had a perfectly highlighted face, and I really like to think that it made my skin softer, too. So, when I ran out of the sample, I turned to Amazon to buy more.

This product is a powder moisturizer. It's super weird but I like it. It says it's supposed to make your pores look smaller and I REALLY feel like it does! I don't love how I feel like I'm going to sleep with powder on my face but when I wake up I feel softer than a baby's bottom.


And this, friends, is why my hair and face regimen at night is like 45 minutes long. Seriously, nighttime takes longer than the morning! But I love these products and hopefully you found something new to love!

Do you have any recommendations for products I just have to try? Leave your suggestions in the comments!

  7. RESTORATION CAME UPON MY LIFE WITH THE HELP OF FUNDING CIRCLE INC. AFTER BEEN DRAIN BY SCAMS ...

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingcapitalplc@gmail.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
