1. Aveda Dry Remedy Moisture Mask for Hair – This is a must-have for me during the winter. In cold and dry weather, my hair gets really dull and rough. Using this mask once a week injects the shine and life back into it!
2. Full by Living Proof – Flat hair no more! This gives my hair so much body and volume. It even makes an air-dry look great! Their Root-Lifter is also a great complement to this product. For women looking for extra movement and body in their hair (who isn’t?!) this is an absolute must-have. There is a noticeable difference immediately.
3. Morrocan Oil – I love to use this product to finish off a look. It seals in my ends and helps prevent split ends. During the winter its also great as a leave-in conditioner.
4. Stages of Beauty Night Cream – We are launching these soon! I cannot get enough this product and I can’t wait for other women to try it. We took a unique approach with our ingredients, using Ayurveda as our inspiration – so lots of unique and potent botanicals. My skin changed after literally 4 days of use, and now I could never stop!
5. Stages of Beauty Radiance Scrub – The citrus extracts and oils make this formula smell divine. The bamboo and pomegranate seeds are wonderful exfoliants to slough off dead skin. I love to let this scrub sit for a while when I am in the shower. Its a few minutes of spa-like bliss, and it lets the citrus enzymes really work away to brighten and even out the skin!
6. Shiseido 38 SPF – Especially in the summer, an SPF is a must. Sheseido’s line of SPFs is among the few that absorbs easily and doesnt feel greasy afterwards or clog up my skin on hot days.
7. Origins Ginger Body Scrub – I love the whole ginger line by Origins. Something about the smell is so energizing and soothing at the same time. This scrub includes a great combination of sugars and oils. It has the right level of exfoliation and hydration at the same time.
8. Origins Ginger Body Souffle – This souffle absorbs so easily into the skin and makes it feel so soft. It is the perfect step after using the scrub!
9. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment – I am addicted to these. I am almost embarrassed to say that I have them in almost every color. I use ‘Plum’ in the Fall/Winter, and the “Passion” for the Spring/Summer. The “Advanced Therapy” one is great as a night treatment or during the winter. They make my lips look great, and they feel (and smell) so luscious! The color also builds well – you can make it more or less intense based on application.
10. Buxom Mascara – This mascara goes on with no clumps and makes my lashes look naturally longer and fuller. The fact that it lasts all day and doesn’t smudge is a huge plus.
