Hello lovelies,

I just wanted to share some of my favorite beauty products from May.  For this month’s shopping haul, I picked up a bit of everything from makeup and skincare to hair products; I needed to restock for my beauty pantry!

The Hair:

Joico K-Pak Reconstruct Conditioner: I’ve tried this shampoo and conditioner once before, and it’s helped my hair on its journey to recovery. I tend to run out of conditioner first, which is why I didn’t pick up the shampoo as well. Joico’s K-Pak is supposed to repair damaged hair and is safe to use on color treated hair. I picked mine up at Ulta when they had a sale.

OGX Quick Drying Thermal Spray: I also picked up this heat protecting spray from Ulta. I have never tried this brand before, so I am pretty excited. I do love the way this product smells!

So hurry to Ulta now for their gorgeous hair event (I am not sponsored, haha!) Going on now until the the beginning  of June!

Makeup:

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Trio: Highlight and strobe your cheekbones with these three beautiful shades: Pyrite, Oasis, and Twilight. I tend to love everything from Urban Decay, and I have been wanting it for awhile so I had to purchase this!

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray Mini: I have the large size that I use quite often, but I wanted one to be able to put in my makeup bag and have with me on the go!

Skincare:

Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner: I purchased the large size of the toner because I tend to go through them rather quickly, so this would save me time and money in the long run. I love all of the toners from Kiehl’s.

Micellar Cleansing Water by Jean Pierre Travel Size: This was my first time purchasing this product. What caught my attention was the cute packaging! I purchased this at Ulta beauty, and I had brought this with me on my road trip. I gotta say, I love it! I will definitely be picking up the full-size soon! It was gentle on my skin and removed all of my makeup!

The Road to Healthier Hair

I have a love and hate relationship with my hair. Together we’ve been through hell and back (haha)! Thank goodness I realized I have been taking my hair for granted, and I haven’t really been giving it the TLC it really needed.  I knew that in order to avoid the big chop I had to get serious.

  • I stopped curling my hair everyday. Thanks to my mom, I have a set of old school hair rollers that I am addicted to! I never leave the house without one for my bangs. (I have stubborn bangs!)
  • I didn’t color my hair for at least a year! It was so hard to watch hair color fade and grow out, but I stuck with it!
  • I started taking Hair, Skin, and Nail gummy vitamins. I don’t know if this helped, but I like to think it did!
  • I finally started using a heat protectant spray if I did use any heat tools.
  • I get a trim once a month.
  • I started using Mane and Tail (a classic, but also a shampoo for horses haha)!
  • And lastly, when I remembered, I rubbed coconut oil on the ends of my hair. A little goes a long way.

My dear friend and hair dresser always told me “Love your hair and it will love you.” she couldn’t be more right.
