This is where I talk about some of the beauty products I've been loving lately...

W3LL People Expressionist Mascara
This ultra pigmented mascara is made with a natural botanical formulation that nourishes while lengthening and thickening lashes. The well designed brush separates and defines my lashes without any clumping or flaking. I think it delivers slightly better on length than volume and it holds a curl decently well.  The formula is creamy and buildable. This mascara does perform best with a lash primer which prevents it from smudging. Lashfood Conditioning Collagen Lash Primer is a favorite of mine.

ACURE Marula Oil
I got this to use with my Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial after the I finished up the trial size Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Oil that was paired with it. Other than the DE oil being a little thicker in consistency, I think this product is quite comparable. It has a lightweight feel and absorbs quickly without feeling greasy or heavy. I picked up this oil on Amazon Prime Day for $8 but it's still a bargain buy at it's regular $13 price point. This oil can also be used on the hair and body but I mainly use it on my face after my Babyfacial treatment.

Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother*
The summer humidity sometimes wreaks havoc on my thick and slightly wavy hair making it a frizzy mess. This product which is applied prior to drying my hair makes it smooths and manageable without weighing it down, leaving it sleek without being flat. Bonus points for a lovely aromatherapy scent and heat styling protection.

Aveda Shampure Compostion Oil*
This is a multi-tasking product with a nourishing blend of certified organic sunflower and meadowfoam oils  that can be used on the scalp or body. My favorite way to use it is in my detox baths. The scent is just divine and instantly calming and soothing. It's also wonderful as a radiance infusing body moisturizer.

Harry's Winston Razor*
I've long used a mens razor both for aesthetics because they look better and cost because the blades are cheaper and even more so if my husband and I use the same ones. The Winston from Harry's combines form and function. The precision head bends to glide over curves and contours and the German engineered blade provides a close and comfortable shave. My husband and I are both fans and we're picking up a second one. Not only is this razor itself reasonably priced, replacement blades only cost $2.

Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Mask
Theres's just something so luxurious and decadent about slathering your face with an organic mask packed with the antioxidant goodness of cacao and CoQ10 and the sweet scent of chocolate. This multi-tasker is a skin treat that detoxifies, tones, and refreshes my skin leaving it feeling rejuvenated, clearer and smoother with a visible glow. Perfect for whenever my skin needs a circulatory or clarity boost.

Have you tried any of these?

My hair is fine and wavy, and the humidity makes it almost unmanageable and a frizzy mess. I wonder if the Aveda product would work on my hair too.

There are so many oils all the time it's so hard to keep up. But I have been hearing about marula oil a lot that I'd like to at least try it.

I'm intrigued by that razor! I used to use mens razors, they're fab.

Josh Rosebrook's Cacao Antioxidant Mask really has caught my attention; I feel as though my skin is in need of a 'circulatory boost', as you've mentioned, and so this sounds worth trying! Have a lovely week Rowena :)

I love using products from the Aveda brand and that infusion style prep smoother seems like a great product. Nice selections.

Jenny @ Geeky Posh said...

I love products that are dessert scented, so I'll definitely have to check out that Josh Rosebrook mask. I've heard a lot of great things about the brand in general!

Rowena, I want to try that Josh Rosebrook Cacao Mask! I was less than impressed with the Perricone MD one (except for the fabulous chocolate scent). Glad to hear this one works. Wow, you do save money with men razors. Mentally figuring out the cost diffeence. LOL That Acure Oil is also impressive! Big price difference from the Drunk Elephant.
