I have an obsession with hair care products. I have tried all manufacturers from drug store brands to salon quality. When you have a full head of naturally wavy, and thick hair taming the frizz can be challenging. While at the beauty salon my stylist told me to try Garnier Fructis a leave in conditioner. I just love it. I use it after washing my hair and even on my dry hair before I use my flat iron. Works wonders and actually tamed by frizzy hair! I also have John Frieda's Frizz-Ease Hair Serum, and Pantene Smooth and Shine Serum. Both of these seem to work but for now I am staying with Garnier Fructis.
My second must have is a good facial cleanser. Again, I have tried various brands and the Olay brands seem to work best for me. They are gentle enough without drying my skin out to much. My Olay product of the month is Olay Foaming Face Wash with Aloe.
I also use a facial toner after cleansing. I love my homemade recipe made with green tea and chamomile. Addtinally, I do like to pamper my face with homemade facial masks.
Good moisturizers are also a must for me! My day time moisturizer is Olay Regenerist and my night time moisturizer is Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream. Without my moisturizers my skin feels unprotected and vulnerable to the elements. I have tried many moisturizers and these seem to work best for me.
I believe that all the color cosmetics in the world won't help a poor complexion and taking care of my skin with a good skin care routine is most important to me.
My eye makeup collection is pretty normal. I have a few basic colors and that is all I need. After writing that last sentence I think I am stuck in a rut when it comes to my eye shadow colors, lol.
