I’m excited today to be starting a monthly favorites series on hair and beauty products that I’m loving at the moment. I always enjoy reading these types of posts on other blogs, and thought it might be helpful if I shared my favorites each month as well.
JCat Fab Five Eyeshadow Palette in Wild Orchard $4.99, Ulta
First up is this amazing eyeshadow palette by JCat Beauty. I had never heard of this brand before, but I immediately fell in love with the colors when I noticed it during an Ulta B1G1 50% off sale.
If you haven’t already figured out, I am a lover of pinks and purples, and I actually used this palette to create the makeup look I wore in my Valentine’s Day Outfit post.
Suave Professionals Refresh and Revive Dry Shampoo $2.88, Wal-mart
Next up is this amazing dry shampoo by Suave. I’ll just go ahead and confess that up until the last year or so, I would wash my hair every other day. Normal, right? Well, not exactly. If you’re like me and you color treat your hair (I get highlights every 3 months), it is recommended that you only wash your hair 2-3 times a week total.
This is due to the fact that washing your hair frequently will strip your hair of its natural oils which make your hair appear shiny and healthy, and depending on the type of shampoo you use, your color will fade more quickly.
Insert dry shampoo, the saving grace in-between washes. Dry shampoo is able to soak up excess oil and grease in your hair, leaving you with beautiful, manageable locks.
I was about ready to give up on drugstore dry shampoos until I tried this product, and voila it works! It smells great, is very easy to use, (just point and spray about 6 inches away from the scalp and brush through hair), and helps my hairstyles maintain their integrity so much longer.
Also, can we just rejoice at the price of it? I mean if I can find a hair product that works amazing for less than $3, that’s a major score in my book. Highly recommend!
Hard Candy Crystal Confetti Nail Polish in Fairyball $4, Wal-mart
Recently I have began obsessing with glittered nail polishes. I don’t know what it is but I see them in the makeup section and I’m immediately drawn to the pretty, sparkly shades. This nail polish is absolutely gorgeous in real-life. I recently shared a photo of the nail polish on my Instagram, but seriously the picture does not do it justice.
It’s a light pink and dusty base coat mixed with all of these gorgeous pink and white specks, and it is simply beautiful. I don’t typically spend $4 on nail polish, but in this case it was completely worth it.
Jordana Glitter Nail Polish in Gemstone $0.99, K-mart
Almost a week after purchasing the Hard Candy nail polish, I stumbled across this gorgeous specimen. I spent last Friday night applying this polish to both my nails and toe nails and when I was finished I was so giddy with excitement that I seriously felt like I was in junior high all over again.
It is absolutely stunning and reminds me a lot of birthday party confetti. Your nails will definitely get noticed with this nail polish, and you will most likely receive a ton of compliments on it.
I also want to add that above all, the quality is excellent! I’ve had this polish on for a week now and with applying two coats I have had zero chips. Mind you, I spend most of my days typing up a storm on a computer, so that should be a good indication of the quality.
Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream for Dry Skin $6.99, Wal-mart
Last but not least is one of my favorite winter moisturizers for my face. I naturally have dry skin and in the winter months my skin literally needs all the extra moisture help it can get. I apply this product to my face every morning when I wake up prior to applying makeup, and every evening before bed.
The gel cream feels so good on the skin and trust me when I say a little of this goes a long way. I typically only apply about a nickle size of product allover my face, and my skin is left feeling moisturized all day. Garnier also makes a moisture rescue version for normal skin types as well, so I highly encourage to give it a go if you’re looking for a great, light-weight moisturizer.
So there you have it, those are all my favorite beauty and hair products for the month of January and I hope you’ll give some of these a try! I’m off for a fun-filled day today with my husband and boys, and tomorrow is my youngest son’s 4th birthday.
The waterworks will probably hit me at some point today, so please say a prayer for this emotional Mama. It was seriously just yesterday he was a tiny baby!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!-Cara
