While waiting in line at Sephora, I spotted this on the add-on shelves (I guess this tactic works 😛 ) and decided to pick it up. I’ve heard lots of wonderful feedback on Argan Oil, but my oh my, it’s truly amazing!

I’ve been really into lipsticks lately and have been carrying 3-4 different lipsticks in my purse everywhere I go! I know it’s a bit crazy, but it’s good to have options when your mood changes throughout the day 🙂

Beauty Tips | Achieving Hair Volume

How many of you out there HATE flat droopy hair? Well, I do! Here a few of my tricks on how to achieve hair volume all day.

I have pretty thick hair (which I’m thankful for) but let me tell you, it isn’t easy to manage. My hair cooperates and stays well maintained in warmer/humid temperature however during the cold/windy days, not so much.

I’ve tried so many different shampoos and products but here are a few of my current top faves.

STEP 1: SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER

I love using Dove’s Daily Moisture Shampoo (Find here), it has a nice scent and keeps my hair soft and moisturized. After experimenting with many different conditioners, I noticed that TRESemme’s 24 Hour Body conditioner (Find here) worked extremely well with the Dove Shampoo. You can definitely feel the “body” in your hair, whereas many conditioners has made my hair extremely flat.

Let’s start off with the Black Sugar Honey Mask Washoff by Skinfood (Find here). First, this product completely surprised me! If you haven’t already heard of them, Skinfood is a Korean cosmetic and skin care line that incorporates natural food ingredients into their products. Their products are very natural, affordable, and smells good enough to eat!

I’ve seen this mask promoted in the window display of Skinfood many times however I never gave it much thought until I received some samples upon purchasing their sheet masks. (Will talk about sheet masks in another review)
