Well, I came here (LA that is) with basically nothing (5 pairs of shoes, imagine that) so beauty essentials were on shortage as well. So I had to improvise.
And I did.
Benefit’s Bathina is one of my all time fave products, it gives the body a luxurious shine making the skin feel softer and very touch worthy. ( winky smiley )
Spot treatment for the win aka Burts Bees blemish stick.
I try out different face masks from time to time and I found this Love & Beauty Aloe Vera one at the drug store, it’s actually pretty good and you also get to do a shameless selfie before taking it off. Extra points for that.
I bought this one solely for the packaging and I am not ashamed to admit it. Not Your Mothers Beat The Heat Thermal Spray protects hair from excessive heat and has a cool name. Oh, I already said that.
I switched my regular toner with this Kiehls cucumber one and franky this is so much better; I also often use this anti redness Expert serum from Boots to get rid of discolorations on my face.
A dry shampoo is always handy and this Herbal Essences is a nice one (not better than the Baptiste line though).
After the ombre treatment my hair was (and still is) in dire need of tlc so an intensive deep treatment mask is mandatory -this Shea Moisture is all natural, organic and pretty efficient ( I also use Organix’ Argan oil too many times during the day).
Yes to blueberries (although I prefer the edible version obviously) Age Refresh cleanser is not a miracle maker but it is mild enough for sensitive skin AND smells nice.
Frizzy hair don’t care (well I do) and this is my weapon against it. John Frieda knows his game and this touch up creme serves as a styling tool as well. Murray’s CoCoSoft Coconut Oil is exactly what the hair doctor at Andy LeCompte prescribed (found at Urban Outfitters) is really greasy (more than the bacon they use on burgers here) but if you leave it on it’ s really nourishing. Just don’t go out with it. Or sit on a friends leather passenger seat. I warned you.
And last but not least, why not cast a spell?
I mean you can make boys fall in love with you without it, I get it but this is easier. I buy in bulk.
