It’s summertime and that means sunshine, pool time, day-drinking, and working everyday! Yep, being in the real world sucks in the summer. No summer vacation!!! I never thought I would be so sad to graduate from school until I realized a couple weeks ago that I haven’t had a break in forever! How depressing but I think that’s enough of my negativity, time to get to the good stuff, my new summer favorites!! My Birchbox has broadened my beauty supplies and has opened my eyes to new brands and products.
Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo & Conditioner
I have naturally curly/wavy hair and sometimes it can be really annoying when I get out of the shower and do my DevaCurl regimen but still end up with frizzy curls! Some mornings I wake up and don’t have time to shower and straighten my hair so I decided to try this duo and its AWESOME. I can just shower and head out the door knowing that my curls are in place due to the anti-humidity shield that these products have. Not only are they miracles in my life but they smell amazing!! I can’t imagine having a shampooing system that doesn’t smell good! These are a little pricey but when it comes down to it they aren’t near as expensive as many of the other salon-worthy products.
Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray
What’s great hair without a shine spray? This amazing find that came in my Birchbox last month is my new obsession. I don’t even care how expensive it is or that reviewers have called it an overpriced hair perfume, It’s AMAZING. I use my DevaCurl gel after scrunching the water out of my hair with my DevaCurl microfiber towel. Then I wait for my hair to dry by itself for a little while and spritz this all over. It smells sooo good and keeps my curls bouncy and shiny! There are other types of this spray from this brand including a dry texturizing spray and anti-humidity spray. I will have to try the travel sizes of these to see if I find another one that I love!
Ambre Blends Organic Oils
I have a weakness for amazing scents and perfumes! I found these gems from meeting a co-worker, after I shook her hand this amazing oil must’ve transferred to me because I kept smelling it the rest of the day and fell in love. Of course, because I’m all about new products, I asked her what her perfume was and she sent me the link for Ambre Blends! This is an independent, women owned business out of Indianapolis, IN. They focus their energy on all organic, simplistic, biodegradable packaging to complement these oils. The oils come in 4 different scents and are packaged in many different ways so you can use them for everything, even deodorant! Once activated by the body’s warmth, our essences produce a unique, long lasting, individual fragrance that exquisitely compliments one’s own natural chemistry. Ambre Blends essences will smell slightly different on everyone due to the unique body chemistry we all possess.
Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer
Life gets crazy and sometimes you just don’t have the time to pump or squeeze your lotion on your skin, which is VERY important in the summertime, well here’s a great new find that I have been using the past few months! Not only is it super simple and quick to use but it is FABULOUS for traveling, as long as you check your bags. The nozzle has a turn-to-close feature so it won’t get all over your suitcase! Personally, I love the aloe scent and I feel like it helps soothe after a sunburn.
I highly recommend giving these amazing products and oils a try because, this may be a little dramatic, but they have changed my life!!
