Must Have Monday: Origins Mini Mask Marvels

I couple weeks back I shopped the Sephora VIB 20% off sale and picked up this Origins Mini Mask Trio along with a couple other goodies. It is no longer available through Sephora but you can get it here. I have heard amazing things about the Drink Up Intensive mask and thought winter is the perfect time to try it out. I was ready to buy the full size when I saw the last one of this adorable trio. I have tried the Clear Improvements mask before and it’s a good, cheaper alternative for Glam Glow. I have only used the Out of Trouble mask once. I liked it and will be adding it to my skincare routine once a week. I love the Drink Up Intensive mask! I use it two or three nights a week and it really hydrates my skin. You don’t need to use a lot of product and your skin will be soft and dewy when you wake up. Oh and it smells delicious…kind of like the Origins Perfect World scent that was one of Oprah’s favorites probably like 10 years ago! I am so happy with this trio and it has me interested in trying out more from Origins.



Hair Care Must Haves

Hair Care Must Haves (2) 9/11/14

Once upon a time, during my high school years, I used to wash and style my hair Not only was this super damaging to my hair but seriously who has time for that? I have finally mastered the art of not washing my hair every day and these are the products that have made my hair so much healthier and saved me so much time.

1. Redken Cleansing Cream- This stuff is amazing. It not only smells delicious, but also helps to rid your hair of all the build up that accumulates between washes. I use this once a week and can’t imagine my hair without it!

2. Tangle Teezer– Do yourself a favor, buy this brush, and never touch your wet hair with anything else ever again. It helps prevent breakage, breezes through tangles and comes in a ton of fun colors.

3. Unite 7 Seconds Leave-In Conditioner- Depending on the day you might want to spray this in your hair before you brush it, but this stuff helps to detangle and protect your hair. I use it every time I wash my hair and it will last you a long time. I seriously love every Unite product I have ever tried.

4. Hot Tools 1-in Curling Iron– The best multi-use iron! Waves, spirals, bends–you name it, you can achieve it with this curling iron. It is easy to use and also affordable.

5. Moroccan Oil– Hydration, shine and yummy smell. I don’t always use this but whenever I’m feeling like my hair is dull or in need of extra hydration I reach for this magic oil.

6. Batiste Dry Shampoo– The key to not washing your hair every day is THIS dry shampoo. Believe me, I have sampled my fair share and this is the best brand by far. It adds volume, soaks up any oil and you can choose from different scents or colors. I am never without at least two cans.

If you can get your hands on a bottle of Redken Wool Shake do yourself a favor and snatch that up! They have discontinued it so savor every spray like I do. What are your hair care must haves?
