All this week I’ll be featuring the beauty products that you, my gorgeous readers, covet and just can’t live without.
First up: Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub, $75
“I’m loving the Doctor’s Scrub. It feels like I’ve just had a facial every time I use it! If my skin weren’t so so sensitive, I would use it everyday. I also love the gritty texture (the ruby crystal) it actually feels like it’s working as I’m scrubbing. Also, you can’t beat a natural product! Perfection!” — Colleen

If you, like me, have less than five minutes to make your hands look presentable — and even, gasp, fantastic – do what I did. Grab a glittery or interesting-looking topcoat. I used the new Jinsoon Lacquer in Polka Black, $18. Slap on a clear basecoat and finish with the topcoat. Even without a colorful nail polish base, you’re left with a fun manicure that took very, very little effort. And even less drying time.
Today marks the first day of spring, so what better way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather (for the east coast, anyway) than with a beachy hair how-to. I love this natural-looking, messy-in-a-good-way beachy hairstyle Renato Campora created for Kate Winslet’s Los Angeles Premiere of Divergent. Here’s how to recreate it:
Step 1: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Building Mousse, $6.50 on clean, wet hair.
Step 2: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion, $6.50, concentrating on the roots to create volume, and blow-dry your hair.
Step 3: Once your hair is fully dry, use a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron to create voluminous waves by wrapping your hair around the iron.
Step 4: After letting your waves cool completely, finished the look with John Frieda Luxurious Volume All Day Hold Hairspray, $6.50 to add long-lasting volume to your waves.
Confession: I’ve got a lot going on right now. Between putting an offer in on a new house (fingers crossed that it all works out!), working full time and being a toddler mom and wife, my plate is pretty full. It leaves very little time for my passion: talking about beauty, playing with products and my favorite: experimenting with fun hairstyles — especially braided hairstyles. So, in lieu of posting a fun twisted tuesday braided hairstyle I’ve created myself, I’m simply going to share photos of the five looks I recently pinned. Lemme know what you think. Do you deem these pin worthy?
