Friday Favorites: Fall/Winter Beauty Products I’m Loving

As the season finally changes in Houston, I try to also make changes in my beauty routine. This fall I have been trying a few new products that I plan to use through winter. Because I know that many of you also tweak your beauty routines and are on the search for good skin products to try, I wanted to share a few of my favorites today.

One of the products that I now swear by for eye-care care is the T2 OXYGEN EYE CREAM O3.0 which helps in the healing and regeneration of damaged skin cells. With ingredients like elderberries (an anti-oxidant), jojoba oil (which firms and hydrates skin), evening primrose ( that boosts blood circulation) this cream makes the aye area feel youthful.

I have been using it for over four weeks and felt more confident with every use because I knew that it was made to protect the eye area. My eyes are an area of focus for me because I suffer from dark circles – I think they’re partially hereditary but I’m proactive in helping minimize them however possible. I am working to implement other habits that help minimize dark circles, like sleeping and hydrating more too.

Other products that I’m loving lately:

  1. NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette – I don’t wear much make up bit lipstick and eyes are my focus when I do. So, I’m loving the colors in this palette, especially for this time of year.
  2. Found Lip Exfoliating Lip Scrub, 0.42 Fl Oz – The weather dries up every inch of my body and caring for my lips is a must. This exfoliating lip scrub has been a friend lately.
  3. Julep No Excuses Invisible Sunscreen Gel – It may not be summer anymore but sunscreen is still a must.
  4. Chi G2 Ceramic & Titanium 1” Hairstyling Iron – I iron my hair often and recently upgraded my chi to the G2. Needless to say, I am loving it! Especially the auto shut off feature and auto temperature feature you can pick according to your hair type (fine, medium or coarse).
  5. Chi 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray – I don’t always use protection when using heating tools on my hair but I have recently implemented this one on my hair styling routine.
  6. Keranique Deluxe Regrowth Hair System – I have been using this system to stimulate hair growth in my hair line. I alternate between this and another shampoo to control my dry scalp but hope to continue to share my hair re-growth routine with you.
  7. Kitsch Black Satin Sleep Scrunchie 5 Count – I have been loving these silk scrunchies for when I tie my hair, I feel like they’re a bit more gentle on my hair.

Fall Hair with Keranique

These products were sent to me to try for free, however, all opinions are my own.

I suppose that hair thinning and hair loss comes with the territory now that I’m 30 – yikes. While, I have a few issues when it comes to my hair, this is one I had not found a solution to. So of course I said yes, when I got the opportunity to try Keranique’s Hair Regrowth System. Especially as the season changes and I look to add fall hair products to my beauty routine.

This Keranique kit treats hair loss; and with its formula promotes thicker, fuller, healthier-looking hair. The scalp Stimulating Shampoo provides micro circulation to the scalp. This helps remove dirt and build-up. While, the Volumizing Keratin Conditioner provides moisture.

Date Night Ready with Degree UltraClear Black+White Dry Spray

This post is sponsored by Degree Women but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Summer time is full of family fun days but also date nights. This is the time of year, we like to take advantage and get away every now and then. We make plans to spend some one-on-one time with each other. Because as parents, I think we owe that to ourselves, to find ways to maintain our marriage fresh. While Summer nights are the perfect time for us to hit the town, it can get a bit warm in Texas. For that reason, I have been using the new Degree UltraClear Black+White Dry Spray to stay fresh.

I love that it goes on instantly dry and gives me up to 48-hours of protection against wetness and odors. The fact that it has Motion sense Technology that releases bits of extra protection whenever I move, make it an allied when dancing is part of our date night plans.

Degree UltraClear Black+White Dry Spray Deo it so good that it has become essential to my lifestyle, beyond date nights. Especially because it is so gentle on all my outfits, it doesn’t leave yellow stains on whites or white marks on blacks.

Lash Extensions with The Lash Lounge in Houston

Lash extensions! This is something that had been on my mind for quite some time. I’m not really sure what kept me from doing it. But I’ll admit that I was a bit on the fence about it. After getting the opportunity to get my lash extension with The Lash lounge in Memorial Green, all I could think was, “why did it took me so long to do this?”

From the moment I walked in, my experience was great! The staff was welcoming, the lobby was clean and inviting. They walked me through the process they answer my questions and even offered some information upfront.

The Process

The last tech that would take care of me walked over and introduced herself. She then walked me over to the station where I would be sit through the extension process. She asked me a few questions to better understand what were my expectations for this experience. While, I had the option to take a nap, Rola  was so great that we chatted the entire time instead.

The entire process took three hours, and this was just because it was my first time. I was advised that fill-ins would need to be done every 2 to 3 weeks, and on those visits I would only spend about an hour at the salon. I was sent home with brushes for my lashes, care instructions and a lash sealer that I bought as it would help maintain my lashes as intact as possible – and let me tell you that I swear by it.

Before & After

I love the volume and length my lashes got from doing the lash extension. While I naturally have lots of lashes, I lack length. Getting the extensions, definitely made a big difference.

It has already been two weeks and my lashes still look great. I will be due for a fill-ins soon and will make sure to share the experience with you on Instagram. 😉

If you’re a Houston Babe and you’re thinking about getting lash extension or any other lash service, make sure to visit The Lash Lounge – you will not be disappointed.

Friday Favorite: My New Hair Tools by Anjou

It’s no secret that I straighten my hair. I do it, not because I don’t love my curls, but because it is easier. Believe or not it is easier for me to deal with my hair straight, than to deal with my curls. And it probably has a lot to do with the fact that I haven’t found a product that my curls love! My straight hair, however, is loving my new hair tools by Anjou!
