New Products I LOVE!

I recently went on a Sephora Haul and besides restocking some of my essential products I use, I decided to try a bunch of new products....and I absolutely love them!  A couple products below are new drug store products I also love!  I've included a brief description of each product below, so you can see the way I like to use them.  Let me know if any of you have tried these products too and what you think!  You can shop all products below by clicking on the links!  
Hope you guys love them!

 I'm really beginning to love this brand! I use this oil on my split ends or anytime my hair needs a little extra special love.  I mainly use this as a body oil!  This oil literally gives you that "J.Lo glow" on your legs and lets be real, who wouldn't want JLo legs?!  I love this oil because you can use it on so many different areas.

I usually use Pureology's Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner.  I have lots of hair (persian hair), but my hair tends to dry flat naturally.  I have straight hair and want more volume naturally.  I tried this new volumizing shampoo and conditioner and I have to say I do notice a difference!  If you blow out your hair directly after your shower, it is that much more of a difference too.  If anyone is looking to give your hair a bit of a boost before styling it, try these!

I love this brand!  I started using this when I randomly got eczema last winter and it really helped!  I haven't had eczema since (hopefully this winter I won't either).  I have tons of allergies as well and I love that this is targeted to sensitive skins and all natural.  This brand is also for anyone who just likes to use soft ingredients on their skin and has sensitivity too.  This eye duty triple remedy is pretty cool It works sort of like a concealer and eye cream in one.  It's one color (peach based) and you apply under your eyes.  You use the metal applicator to massage in the product and it will instantly leave you with smooth, brightened eyes.  This is perfect when you are on the go and don't have time to wear make up.  This one product can make a world of difference. 

I absolutely LOVE this liner!  I always use gel or cream liners, so this was perfect for me.  I used to use Make Up Forever's Aqua black waterproof cream eyeshadow as a gel eye liner (which I also love to), but this is extremely easy to apply, since it is in a pen form.  I highly suggest this to all the gel liner users out there!

This hair spray ties along with giving your hair more volume.  I love to finish my curls or blow out with this hair spray because it gives it that finishing touch of volume that I need to complete my style.   It's lightweight and not sticky, which is great because I do not like to feel like I have tons of product in my hair.

Who doesn't want their pores to appear smaller?  And if you do not have ANY visible pores at all, lucky you!  I love this scrub because it just leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean.  It literally makes your skin feel "vacuumed out" from all your leftover make up, oils, and toxins.  Even if you do not struggle with pores, I think this is a great product to use every now and then to give your skin a little detox.

I have tried different face brushes, buffers, and even the Clarasonic.  Again, I have sensitive skin, so I don't like to scrub with anything too harsh.  This sponge is great because it works your pores, as well as gives your face a good scrub.  You simply pour your cleanser on the sponge and scrub away.  I love it as well because it is all natural and made of vegetable fibers.  

I use this along with a shower wash.  This leaves your skin so smooth and soft and it smells great!  It prevents moisture loss and scrubs away dry skin cells.  It also brightens and tones your skin with each use.

I've been getting into BB Creams lately.  I used to use the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, which is great too!  I used the cream formula, because the liquid tended to make my skin very oily very quickly.  I have more oily based skin than dry.  I do not wear foundation everyday and I wanted to try something that is light and fresh for everyday use, that still gives me a little glow!  I tried BB Creams and I'm starting to love them.  I love this BB Cream because it has SPF 35.  I think it is SOOO important to use a moisturizer and products that have SPF, because you need to protect your skin.  

BB Creams provide a bit of coverage, have SPF and contain antioxidants.  This specific Smashbox one moisturizes, primes, protects, perfects and controls oils, which is perfect for someone with oily skin like me.  It also is suppose to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.  CC creams are "Color Corrective".  If you have redness, dark spots, sallowness etc., this would be better for you.  CC creams are going to be lighter on the skin than BB creams and not necessarily used as "coverage".  So be sure to choose the one that is right for you!  If you are not sure, visit your local Sephora or consult with a make up artist to help you decide.  

This is another product from Phyto.  This is another product that ties into getting that "volume boost" in your hair.  I spritzed this in my towel dried hair, before I'm styling.  When I blow dry my hair, I notice the biggest difference on my crown and root base.  I also love this product and brand, because their products are heavy.  I don't feel like I have close to anything in my hair, which is great!  No one likes to be left with tacky or sticky hair.  With the combination of the Pureology Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner, this spray, and Paul Mitchell's hair spray, my hair has been looking exactly how I want it to! If you want to achieve a fuller look, try these products together and let me know how it works for you!
