2013 FAVORITES: SKIN CARE, HAIR CARE, AND MISC ITEMS


Skin Care

Face Scrub: Skinceptoin Microderm Facial Exfoliation
If you have dry skin and get dry patches or you're just looking for a way to remove some of the dead skin that accumulates on the top of your face, then you must try this face scrub out. It is a bit abrasive for this with sensitive skin, but if you skin is not too sensitive, I would say this works great. After one use, my skin feels silky smooth.

Face Mask: Earth Science Purifying Facial Mask
I mean who doesn't want to love like a character from Avatar? This bright blue mask is quite fun to "paint" on your face and helps to reduce redness. 

Body and Hand Moisturizer: Jergens Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer
The first time I tried this lotion was in a sample in InStyle. The first thing that attracted me was the smell. I love the smell of shea butter, and this lotion smelled especially warm and inviting. It is not super thick or sticky, so you can use it at any time. It adds the perfect amount of light moisture back into my skin. 

Hair Care

Shampoo: Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo
My hair gets greasy after just one day of not watching, so I am always in need of a great clarifying shampoo. I have that my hair has never felt cleaner until I used this shampoo. It contains ingredients like papaya juice, mango juice, lemon oil, etc. I would not recommend it for those with normal to dry hair because it is extremely clarifying; however, if you have oily hair, by all means, you must try it.

Conditioner: Bioglo Goats Milk Conditioner
Who knew goat milk works as a great conditioner? When my mom suggested I try it, I thought the idea was a bit ludicrous. Little did I know, this turned out to be one of the best conditioners I have ever used. I apply it to everywhere except my scalp, and it does a great job at conditioning without making my hair feel heavy.

Misc Items

Candle: Bath and Body Works Creamy Pumpkin Candle
I know fall has passed, but this scent is so yummy. I always become hungry when smelling it. It is described as the sumptuous and soothing fragrance of spiced pumpkin, sweet caramel and warm cream inspired by the sweet richness of fall harvest. Sadly, I think they discontinued it as a candle scent, but they still have in online in the form of a foaming hand soap.

Nail Polish: Topshop Celestial 
Celestial is most defintely a summer color, but I love it so much that I would wear it year round. This is the one of the first items I have ever bought from Topshop, and I am in love with it. It is opaque with one coat (I still like to use two), it has a shine without a top coat, and it lasts on my nails for a good amount of time. Oh, not to mention that this blue just makes me so happy.

Lip Balm: Blistex Restore Lip Balm
My lips are constantly dry and chapped, so I am always looking for a good lip balm. I happened to try this out because I saw that my cousin had it. It comes in a set of two that connect. The white is called "Revive" and smells like sweet mint (absolutely amazing) but doesn't work well to moisturize. "Restore" on the hand, has some undetectable fruity scent (a good fruity scent) that is amazing at healing my dry lips.

Body Spray: Victoria by Victoria's Secret
I don't think I have ever smelled a scent so wonderful. It is light but still has a touch of perfume to it. It is described as a sparkling blend of red berries, Victoria rose and crème brûlée. That probably doesn't mean much to you, but you just need to smell it to believe. This will definitely be my signature scent for a while.
