Beauty Beauty Beauty Beauty Rockin Everywhere!

Feb 3, 2014

Shall we talk products? Why not right? I will try any beauty product once or twice, I am like a guniea pig when it comes to this stuff. If you have a beauty post out there, link me to it because my husband just loves to support my spending habit! But through all my clinical trials I have found some products that I consider to be my must haves. Do I think they will work for everyone? No idea...

1. Queen Helene Masque- I have been using this mask on my face since I was in high school. My mom used to put it on my face and I thought it was so gross. But now I try and use it a couple times a week. It keeps my face feeling silky and smooth. Plus side is it scares the crap out of my kids when I put it on! And for under $5 how can you beat that?

2. Miracle Skin Transformer- This bottle is a little on the pricier side, but the effects are totally worth it in my book. This one is a two-fer for me. It is loaded with vitamin C so it makes your skin bright and glowy, but it is also the best primer I have found. I use it on a daily basis, but I put a little extra on for the days I actually put make up on. It makes your face super smooth and your foundation just glides on. I use such a small amount that this bottle has lasted me well over 6 months. 

3. Tomas Self Tanning Spray- I cannot say enough about this spray! I use this on my face before I apply my make up just so I don't look like death walking around. It is super light weight, does not clog my pores at all or make me break out. It is the most natural self tanner I have found, no jersey shore effect for me!! Plus, I live in Alaska my skin hasn't seen a splash of vitamin D in over a year. I could easily be an extra in a Twilight movie with the pasty color of my skin if it weren't for this can. 

4. Batiste Dry Shampoo- I have talked about this stuff before, but I really am an addict. It is $8 and it comes in so many different shades. The brown helps hide my dirty blonde roots before I have a chance to hit up my super high class salon known an my Downstairs Bathroom. It does have a slight smell to it, but if my husband hasn't said anything about it I deem it okay, Lord knows he has an opinion about ever.y.thing. 

5. Egyptian Magic Cream- Abracadabra! This stuff lives up to its name, it really is magic. I am without a doubt obsessed with having soft skin. And up here in the tundra the cold turns you into an alligator. This lotion is amazing. I would seriously throw down with someone in the store if there was only one bottle left. Like I would go into Walking Dead Rick Grimms mode on someone I love this stuff so much! I use it head to toe, and even on my kids. It is oil based so if you don't like the feeling of using oils on your skin, this is not for you. Since moving to Alaska I haven't found it in a store, but I have heard you can buy it at Costco so I am going to look next time I go. 

6. Cetaphil Face Wash- I have combination skin, and this is the only cleanser I have found that does not accentuate my dryness or my faces love for grease. I have tried many cleansers but some are just too harsh and others don't leave my face feeling clean. This stuff has yet to let me down!

7. Josie Maran Argan Infinity- I have mentioned this product before as well, but it really it a great multipurpose product. Another oil based product, man I really like oils no? I also love olive oil if you're interested...anyway...I use this in my hair, on my face, and my cuticles. Oh and I also use this on Pierce because he has some really dry patches of skin that need extra love and attention. It also helps with inflammation so I put this under my eyes for those days when teething Avalon tries to suck the little bit of youth my face is hanging on to. 

So do me a solid and let me know some of your favorites, or just beauty remedies in general, give this stay at home mama something to do during nap time :) 

* I mean I could do more productive things during nap time...but the thought of all those possibilities will throw me into a tailspin!


  1. This post makes me feel like such a boy. LOL The only thing on this list that I've ever even heard of is the cetaphil. On my face, I either do Aveda tinted moisturizer (I think) or Pond's BB+. And I put Suave Moroccan oil in my hair. And that's pretty much my look pretty routine. Normally, I'm just bumming.

  2. I'm lucky if I remember to condition my hair. So. I'll be taking all your tips and applying them to life.

  3. I usually just use a tinted moisturizer, lol. I'm too lazy to do anything else. :p

  4. Loved this post! I feel ya with being an extra in Twilight. Gotta love Alaska.

    1. I know right!!! I fear for my skin when it gets actual sunlight again. I might just shrivel up :)

  5. Hahahaha you are so hilarious, I never skip a word in any of your posts for fear I might miss something that will make me cry-laugh, haha! I was JUST about to make a post about my make-up crap and then one on my skin stuff too! I'm totally like you too, just reading this post is going to make to compulsively buy everything you have listed. I use the same cleanser - LOVE Cetaphil. Can't really go wrong with them. One of the biggest beauty bloggers said #3 was also her favorite, hands down, so I GOTTA get me some of that! I also definitely want to try that primer! I looooove soft skin too, and living in AZ is horrid for skin, as you know. Omg, I just tried Herbal Essence's dry shampoo, the one in an all white bottle for $5 - AMAZING. The first one I've tried that actually smells good! And it doesn't make my hair white. Okay wow, I'm totally rambling! I could go on and on about this stuff!
