Beauty Products I Love Right Now

1-Lisa_Glam2 (2)-005I am a woman who loves her makeup, lotion, perfume and hair products! Although I am not that cluttery product hoarder… okay nevermind I shouldn’t say that as I sit here and remember that I have 3 Ziploc bags full of makeup I am not using at the moment. Hehe!

I CAN claim that I am not a ‘things’ hoarder, like those people who can identify the year by the stack level of crap. You know, like if a hoarder moved into a home in 2010, then the first few inches up from the floor would be from 2010. About 5 inches up, the items would be from 2011 and so on. How interesting is that!?

Right now I have movie “The Social Network” playing on the TV while I work. I feel like this is one of those movies that never gets old. I bet channel FXX agrees since they bought it to play at least one weekend a month. Will the movie still be good if Facebook keels over like MySpace? Oh the irony in Justin Timberlake buying a large share of MySpace after he was a supporting actor in The Social Network. He can do anything and become a success at it, but he just couldn’t bring back MySpace from the dead. Could Yeezus?

Anyway, some products that I am enjoying right now can mostly be found at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens or Ulta. Here they are in no particular order:

 

1. Clean and Clear Morning Burst Moisturizing Gel

CleannCleargel
This lightweight, non-lotion gel for the face is a great alternative to a face moisturizer! The scent is honeydew mixed with cucumber, and even has that cucumber coolness feeling to it. I love it.

 

 

 

 

2. Scope Breath Mist Spray (Peppermint)

Scopebreathmist
This ‘binaca’ style breath spray is great for busy people. When you don’t have a toothbrush or mouthwash handy, pull this small to medium sized spray out of your purse for a freshener!

 

 

 

 

3. Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm (Healthy Blush 20)

When you’re in the sun as much as I am, you have to protect your skin. I like this newer lip balm from Neutrogena because it not only has SPF 20, but it also has a soft rosey tint. When I want to skip lip stick, I reach for this lip balm as well!

 

 

 

 

4. One N Only Argan Oil Hair Spray

What girl doesn’t love argan oil? It smells great and conditions your hair. I love this brand’s oil and the hairspray.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. L’Oreal Smoothing system

All 3 of these products (shampoo, conditioner and creme) in the smoothing line work harmonious! I have naturally medium curly hair, and when I want to go straight, this is the combo I use.

 

 

 

 

 

6. Suave Captivating Curls curly mouse (compared to Redken)

Suavemouse
This Redken knock-off is legit. Well, I wouldn’t know how good the Redken brand mouse is, but this Suave curly hair mouse controls my curls perfectly when used with a diffuser. Sometimes I add a little bit of Pantene BB creme throughout my hair too, but usually on day two.

 

 

 

 

7. Ocean Potion Ever Glow gradual body bronzer lotion

OCEAN POTION EVER GLOW
This huge bottle goes a looong way. It’s good to use in between real sun tanning. It smells like orange sickle but does not leave you orange. Also, the lotion in the bottle is a light white color with a light orange tint. FYI- I’ve only used it on my body, and not my face.

 

 

 

 

8. Epicuren Moisture Surge Hyaluronic Acid Gel

I picked up this little expensive bottle of youth at my esthetician¬†at Spectrum Gym in El Seguno, CA. It’s $28, but it’s a great face moisturizing alternative.
