Five Beauty Products You Might Need

1. A few months ago I did a video blog of my favorite beauty products and asked for people to post their favorite products in the comments. This was BY FAR the #1 item commented about after that video. And I had never even heard of it! It's Moroccan Oil. The instructions (and also reviews online) say to apply a small amount to the ends of your hair after you shower. I swear, I tried at least ten times and each time my hair was a waxy mess when it dried. I almost gave up on the product altogether but then one day I applied it before a shower to my dry hair, washed it like normal and presto! Soft hair!

2. Another oil-based one: this one is MAC's Cleanse Off Oil. I have dry skin and I "pre-wash" my face with this oil and it has really helped reduce blemishes and made my skin much softer!!!

3. I found a new shampoo I love and it's not $30 a bottle! Prayers can be answered!!! My sister, who went to beauty school, made me swear off all drugstore poos and conditioners but this one is AWESOME and I will tell her to her face! Ha! It's Dove's Intense Damage Shampoo and there's a similar conditioner.

4. If you have a measly three dollars to spend, you should consider getting the E.L.F. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder. It's a dupe for a super pricey blush and it's awesome! I use it pretty much every single day!!

5. This one is the cheapest thing on my list; I think it's around $2 at Wal-Mart. It's the NYC Liquid Eyeliner. The wand is easy to use and it really stays put. Even if you're scared of liquid eyeliner, I would encourage you to try this one!

Have you tried any of these products?? What did you think?

I love trying new beauty products... my hair has been a big ol' dry mess these days. I am trying to grow it out but all the blow drying and non-sense is taking it's toll. I might have to try the Moroccan Oil if I can find it here in Canada.

I am a slave to Proactiv for my skin for now... and am scared to try anything else!

And I love love love Dove Shampoo... it's a must for me!
