Product Recommendations

Here’s three products I’m loving.

Olema Rose Wine. So good and reasonably priced at $14.

 

Native Deodorant. Native contains no aluminum, smells great, and works better than any other deodorant I’ve tried.

 

Wanderlust, A Modern Yogi’s Guide to Discovering Your Best Self. This book provides a perfect introduction to yoga including workbook style prompts to help you be the best you.

Finally, A Face Moisturizer for My Sensitive Skin

My face is extremely sensitive to product. I know this because I have spent hundreds of dollars trying different face moisturizers only to have them all cause redness and irritation to my skin. So I finally decided to try an oil on my face, instead of a moisturizer.

I’ve been reading a lot about Argan Oil. Argan oil comes from a fruit tree (using the nut inside the fruit) found in Morocco and has been used for generations as a skin/hair moisturizer. It contains vitamins A and E, anti-oxidants and omega 6. Normally, I fear all natural skin products as they cause the worst reactions for me. However, the information on Argan oil says it helps with inflammation too. Not wanting to spend a small fortune again, I went to Target and found Acure Argan Oil for $12.99.

I have been using this product for about a week now and it has yet to cause any skin problems for me and my skin looks great. A little goes a long way. One pump of the oil is all I need for my face and neck. So if you have sensitive skin and are in need of a moisturizer, Argan Oil might be the way to go for you.

Trying face moisturizer tip: Put a little bit of the moisturizer on the back of your ear to see if it will cause a reaction. (Putting it on the wrist never worked for me)

Scent & Sensibility

While shopping in Palacio de Hierro with no particular goal in mind, I saw a beautiful display of perfumes and candles. I immediately was drawn to it and I’m so glad I was. Jo Malone scents are amazing. Unique fragrance combinations in chic packaging.  My favorite is Tuberose Angelica which is one of their intense fragrances. I haven’t been able to take my wrist away from my nose!

Brunette No Longer an Option

But I’m not ready for the Gray Revolution. My stylist was right. Going back to my normal brunette would make my gray hair even more pronounced. I said I  didn’t care, but it turns out I do. So now what? I absolutely hate going to the salon for hours and the it costing me hundreds of dollars. The only option left is coloring at home. My quest for the least damaging way to color my hair has begun.  Until then, check out the women below who make me seriously think growing out the gray is a great option too.

Make Up Duo for Ruddy Skin

I have always had reddish skin, but it seems to have become a little worse with age. Luckily, I found two products that hide it. First,  I use NYX CC Crème in  med/dk green (only where I’m red, nose & cheeks).  Then, I use a product  that was recommended to me while traveling in France. It’s called Bioderma Creáline AR. A little bit goes a long way. It’s a  dark  tint when I put it on my finger, but magically when I put it on my face it blends right in with my pale skin. I think moderation is the key with this product. Again, I use this only on my red zones and blend it out. Wa-La! No more red.
