Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask
This stuff is Ah-Mazing! As I've said in my recent post, my hair is faaaaarrrrr from perfect, so I need any help that I can get.. and for roughly $7.00, this stuff is a steal! It is not heavy at all, so it does not weigh down your hair.. As far as the scent? It definitely has a hint of cherry in it, not cough medicine cherry.. don't worry! ;) (Who likes COUGH medicine cherry? Blech!) You apply it to your hair after you've shampooed.. focusing more so on the ends as thats where you'll have more damage. You should leave it on for a good 5-10 minutes. Save this process for when you're about to shave your legs.. Multi-task ladies! (If you aren't big on Cherry scented things you can try L'Oreal's EverPure Moisture Deep Restorative masque.. basically the same thing but has a Mint scent.)

Lush - Love Lettuce Mask
Let me just say I'm OBSESSED with Lush! I recently became acquainted with Lush products after watching TONS of YouTube videos about their Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars, Massage Bars, etc.. (www.lush.com) What girl does NOT like bath/shower products? I know I sure do.. So, after taking many trips to Lush and purchasing a few (A LOT) of products, I decided to give their facial line a try, and I'm SO glad I did! I had to try out all of their masks to figure out which one worked best for my skin type. (Keep in mind, these masks are made with no preservatives so you have to keep them in your fridge. Average "Shelf life" is roughly 2 weeks from when it was made.)
Website Ingredients: Love Lettuce is a wonderful lavender scented, rich green exfoliating mask for normal to oily skins. We make it with an infusion of nutritious agar seaweed, balancing lavender oil and chlorophyll to control your skin's oil production and china clay to penetrate the skin and absorb the dirt you've picked up from the atmosphere. As you wash it off, the ground almonds and almond shells gently remove dead skin cells to give you a fresh-from-the-market-garden look (and scent).
I use this mask probably 2x a week as it has an expiration date, and you want to use the product and not waste it. I apply it to a clean face and then followed by normal cleanse/tone/moisturize process. It definitely has made my face a lot smoother as the ground almonds/shells exfoliate my skin. I highly recommend this product!
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser
I've been on the hunt for THE perfect facial cleanser and I finally found one that does not irritate my skin. After doing some research online I found that tons of dermatologists recommend this facial cleanser to their patients because it doesn't have any fragrance and it's extremely gentle on the skin. (Also, it has been featured in Allure's best beauty buys several times.) When I first applied it I was shocked that it didn't lather like normal cleansers do, but it still did the trick.. my face felt fresh afterwards!
MAC Humid Eyeshadow
I'm obsessed with green eyeshadows and this has to be my favorite EVER! It's not too light, not too dark.. and really makes my brown eyes pop! It's a Frost finish with green/gold shimmer. I like to pair this with MAC Goldmine in the inner tear duct, MAC Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow all over the lid, and Humid in my crease.. I blend the colors together with MAC Cork. If I want to intensify the color I will add MAC Espresso/Carbon in the crease/outer V to give dimension.)
MAC 217 Blending Brush
This brush is wonderful! You can use it for so many things.. applying a Paint Pot, Primers, or what it was intended for.. Blending! This brush smooths out any harsh lines.. It's a must have!
Urban Decay Primer Potion
This eyeshadow primer is a gift from up above.. Nothing is worse than spending a ton of time on your eye makeup only to go out and have it fade.. THIS stuff will prevent that and keep your eyeshadows looking vibrant all.day.long! -- The only downside about this product is the packaging.. granted, it's cute.. but just not realistic! When you think there isn't anymore product in it, you're sadly mistaken. The way the tube is designed there is product you don't even get to. Thanks to tons of YouTube videos you can now depot your UDPP. http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=depot+urban+decay+primer+potion&search_type=&aq=0&oq=depot+urban+
MAC Creme D'Nude Lipstick
Perfect nude color! Looks great when you have a Smokey eye and you want color on your lips, but not overdone..
OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender
This color is beautiful! Vibrant light purple.. perfect for Spring! You may need 2 coats to make the color stand out and not streaky.
Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray
If you're going to flat iron/curl your hair you should always use a heat protectant.. this stuff is super cheap, does the job and smells great!
