Pre-Fall Beauty Faves for Beautiful Skin and Awesome Hair
I'm calling this my pre-fall beauty faves but I've been using some of these products for the last couple of months, while the others are new to my regimen and worth mentioning. I also have to tell you guys how much I LOVE social media because if it wasn't for YouTube or Instagram, I never would have found out about Pixi's Glow Tonic (thanks @demureest for posting this!) and Bumble and Bumble's Hairdresser's Invisible Oil, as per vlogger Annabel Daza.
Jax Coco Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
This jar of coconut oil comes in a tiny package with the intended purpose of using it for beauty. So far I've used it as an eye makeup remover, lip balm, and moisturizer on my face, chest, hands, cuticles and elbows. I think it's the ultimate multi purpose beauty product and don't worry, the coconut smell fades on your skin.
TIP: I use a light pat of this oil on my face on top of my regualr moisturizer when I need extra moisture.
TheFaceShop Cherry Blossom Body Mist
As far as body mists go I really like the strength of this one! It smells light, airy and feminine and makes a statement. I've been using it on the days when I want to ditch my perfume but still smell nice. Try this one out. I think guys will like it.
TIP: Spray your fragrance on your clothes instead of your skin if you want it to last longer. I personally don't like fragrance against my skin and much prefer to spray my clothes.
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil
I made an immediate trip to Sephora after watching Annabel's review and I was not disappointed. My straightening iron now runs like butter over my hair and my wavy style lasts longer too. I personally think the price is hard to swallow at $50, but trust me, it's worth it and I have a feeling the bottle will last about a year. I highly recommend this product to anyone who has crazy unruly hair!
Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic Beauty Elixir
I finally understand the hype behind this cult favourite. Glow Tonic the toner with magical properties. It's alcohol-free, minimizes pores, renews cells and, balances your skin so that it's clearer and brighter. I LOVE IT. It's available in the US at Target so I'll have to stock up on my next trip there because I don't want to run out.
TIP: After I've applied it to my face, I take the same cotton pad and use it on the backs of my hand to keep my skin looking fresh.
