my favorites:)

I have an obsession. If you walk into my bathroom then you will see what it is. But since you can't do that, let me share with you :) I love love love any kind of beauty/hair products. And since Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is hosting a party today featuring your favorite hair & beauty products, I thought I would join in!

I know I talked about this stuff not long ago but in case you missed it... I use this lotion every day. It is a gradual tanning lotion and the thing I love most about it is that it does not smell like tanning lotion normally does. It smells really good and it gives you a great color! It is called A Touch of Summer by Hempz.Another great tanning product I am in love with is FAKE BAKE! Oh my goodness, this stuff is awesome. It will not turn you orange or streak. It goes on dark so you see exactly where you are putting it. I try to use this once a week before I go to bed at night (if I remember!)

This is Fake Bake's self tanner for your face. I use this just about every day before I put my make up on. It will not clog your pores and it gives you a great color.

Now on to skin care. I am IN LOVE with Image. I discovered Image about 5 or 6 years ago from a friend who is now an Image consultant. This stuff is amazing and would recommend it to anyone. I love their Vital C line. I use their hydrating cleanser at night before bed.
After I wash my face with the cleanser, I use this anti- aging serum. LOVE IT!
I also use their hydrating eye cream and their hydrating skin repair creme at night. In the morning I use the Ageless total facial cleanser. I also use the Solar Defense creme during the day. It has spf 15 and does not leave your face greasy. None of these products do. I also have the Clear Cell medicated acne mask. You can use it as a mask or as a spot treatment when you have breakouts.
As for make up, I use Bare Escentuals. I love this make up because it gives you a good coverage without feeling heavy. It is a mineral make up so you can sleep with it in and it would be okay. (I do not do that though because I feel like you should wash your face before you go to sleep!)
I am picky about mascara. I have switched back and forth between MAC & Victoria's Secret. day I was completely out of mascara so I picked some up at Wal-Mart and I am in LOVE with it!!! It is Maybelline's Collassal Volume Express. This stuff is awesome and more than 1/2 the price cheaper than the others:)Now on to HAIR :) Ahhhh. This is my number 1 weakness- hair products. Since I am a hairstylist, I have tried lots of products and here are the ones that I love most.
One of the things I can't live without??? My Chi. If you have one, then you know why. If you don't have one, go buy one immediately.

I also love the Chi hair dryer. A must have for sure. Yes, it is a little expensive for a hair dryer but it will make such a difference. (sorry, not sure why this pic turned out so small!)
Since my hair is unruly & frizzy, my favorite shampoo & conditioner ever is Sleek by Matrix. I have tried others and always go back to Sleek.During the fall & winter (especially around the holidays) I can not resist this pumpkin shampoo & conditioner by Sexy Hair. It smells so good you will want to drink it. But don't.
If you are needing some volume, this root pump by Big Sexy Hair is amazing!

My favorite hairspray is this one by Kenra. Great hold without that stiff feeling.
Biolsilk Silk Therapy:) Ahhhhh love it! Need I say more?

This is a product I have recently discovered. The lady at the beauty supply says they CAN NOT keep it on the shelf because it sells so fast. It is called It's a 10. This is their leave in miracle product that is AMAZING!! They also make shampoo, conditioner, and a miracle reconstructor. They are all great! Smells GREAT as well:)

I have tried a billion different things to give you texture. Some waxes are too heavy and sticky but I love this Soy Paste by Healthy Sexy Hair.

But something I love even more than that is this stuff by Short Sexy Hair. Its called Play Dirty :) It is a spray wax and I love love love it! It sprays like a hair spray but gives you texture like a wax. It will not weigh your hair down. Love it!! Oh, and it smells so yummmmmy!

Now these are just some of my favorites. I could go on and on about some more that I love but since its an obsession, we could be here all day! Ha! Now off to clean my messy house:)

  3. visiting from Kelly's Korner and our post could really be the same. I also put some big sexy products on mine, it's a 10, biosilk and I use the soy paste on many of my clients. I worked in a salon for 8 years and then decided to stay at home with my boys, Now I just do a little hair on the side for friends and family. I will have to check back often since we have alot in common.

  4. here from Kelly's Korner too, I totally forgot about Image and their Vital C line... I'm gonna have to go and get some ASAP!! It works so well and smells so yummy!
