Saturday be-you-tiful YOU!

Hello all!
Its been a while since I last posted. With working so much over the holidays AND being sick in January I watched my blog die, which led me to my NY resolution to spend more time and attention on my blog this year, so you will definately start to hear from me a lot more in 2012!

Today I'd like to show you a few beauty items that I can not live without.  For those of you who do not know me let me inform you on a little secret...I am a product junkie! With that being said it was not easy for me to pick out only three items that I love since, lets be honest, I love them ALL! :) So, after giving it some thought and discipline, I made myself come up with the top three (and I'm not endorsed what so ever by any of these products) so here goes:

#1-Halo Illuminating Color Protector-
For those of us who hilight or color our hair this is a life saver! It is high gloss rinse that you apply to your hair mid way thru your color cycle to make your color last longer. It rejuvenates your color by adding a glossy shine to your hair and in the end saves you money since it extends the life of your color.

#2-Loreal Hydra Perfect Loose Powder-
Powder is a tricky beast. Some of us love it and others of us hate it. I for one love it but I have combination skin that is more oily in the summer and dry as heck in the winter so I have learned that I have to change out certain products as the weather changes-powder being one of them. In the winter I love to use this powder because it sets my make up VERY nicely without caking or drying me up. You end up with a velvety smooth finish to your face. KID you not folks..love this stuff!





#3-Aveda Beautifying Composition- (GRAND FINALE)
Oh yes! This baby ROCKS! When I was first introduced to it I thought who would slather oil all over their face....yes I was skeptical. Then, wouldn't you know it, I had a facial one day at an Aveda salon and to my suprise they used this oil all over my face! I thought oh no! Oil...on my face? That could only end with clogged pores and sludge all over my face, right? WRONG!!!!  This oil is amazing! It is made up of all plant based oils so there is NO PETROLEUM in it. All natural folks and your skin absorbs it without leaving ANY residue or traces behind and it laves your skin not only moisturized but nuturished. Its like a V8 for your skin! SERIOUSLY! And the best part is you can add drops of this to your bath water for all over loveliness or put it in your hair. This is a MUST HAVE in my weekly routine. (I use it about once or twice a week before putting on my makeup). Let it fully be absorbed before applying make up.



Ok so there's my top three products. If you have not tried any of them I encourage you to give them a try and if you DO use any of them please let me know what you think. I'm always open for suggestions and comments myself as I love discovering new things!

Have a beautiful Saturday!
