My Other Obsession

February 26th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

So, I love media, pop culture and books, but my other obsession is beauty products.

There is just something about walking into a Sephora or an Ulta to see the products that will cure my issue.  I love it!  I would have loved the apothecaries of the 1800s.

Now, I’m not a big make-up person.  I put on mascara, some lip gloss and blush.  That’s it.

I know that sounds odd but I love skin products and bath/ beauty products.

In the next few weeks, I plan to blog more about this as well as establish blog postings on other web sites.

First, I’d love to give credit to other blogs, web sites who I refer to.  I found some of the greatest products here:

1. Pop Sugar

2. Rank & Style

3.  This is Glamours

4. Vicki Archer

5. Lucky Magazine

6. Vogue

As far a products, let’s start with a problem I ways have.

Dry, Itchy Skin in the Winter.  Last Winter I had scratches from itching so hard, especially on my legs.  I searched for products that work.  Here are a few as well as a few techniques that worked for me.

1. Cetaphil hand cream.  This is the one in the tub.  I use it in the shower and but it on right after I dry off in the show.  You must stay in the shower to have this work.

2. Elizabeth Arden’s 10-hour cream.  She used to use this on her horses.  I use it on my legs, hand, face, lips, cuticles.

3.  Caudalie’s Divine Oil.  Love this on my face, lips and hands.

They are great and will help you through the winters!

 

Hi all,

I know I post about books, pop culture and anything that really interests me.  Some days I’m pretty random.  So let the randomness continue!!!

This post is about my favorite 3 beauty products of the year.  I’ve struggled with dry skin as well as slight hair loss this year so, here are some products that helped me!

1. Coconut Oil, Coconut Oil:  If you have dry skin or need help strengthening hair, go get some Coconut Oil.  You can find it in any grocery store.  I use it on my hair and body, especially my face.  I put it on my hair once per week and then shampoo.  It works amazingly well and makes it strong and soft.

2. Do not wash your hair every day!  I know this is not a product but an amazing tip.  I always thought this was gross but I am a convert.  I only wash my hair every other day.  I still condition every day but not exposing your hair to harsh scents and soap every day makes a great difference.

3. Aveeno fragrance-free body wash:  I have had extra itchy and dry skin this year.  I searched for a product that would not be harsh and this one worked wonders.

Have a great weekend and I’ll continue to post my favorite tips and products!
