Beauty Bag Redux
I wish I was a beauty girl! The sad truth is (since I end up spending most of my frivolous funds on clothes and things for the house), my beauty bag is seriously left wanting. There are a few things I swear by (I'll buy Big Shampoo by Lush forever) but I'm not really loving my current drugstore beauty situation... time to trade up!
Aesop Purifying Cream Cleanser, Volumising Conditioner & Fabulous Face Oil - It seems that everyone loves Aesop products (and with that gorgeously minimal packaging, who wouldn't?) and I must be he last one to give them a try. A few new facial products and a conditioner that won't weigh my hair down sound like the perfect things to test out.
Grown Alchemist Body Cream & Treatment Serum - Grown Alchemist is another brand that all of my favorite bloggers are recommending all of a sudden. Again, I can't help but think that beautiful packaging is to blame but I'm definitely a label savvy shopper. If something doesn't look good in my medicine cabinet, I'm a little less likely to purchase... oops! Since my skin is going b-a-n-a-n-a-s lately (blame our crazy month on the road) I've got my eye on these two healing products.
Rodin Hand Cream - I've been wanting to try this luxurious hand cream for the longest time. Why not treat myself to something a little luxe?
NARS Illuminator - When it comes to cosmetics, I'm a die-hard NARS fan. Their Sheer Glow foundation is my holy grail product and I can always count on the brand for beautiful shades of everything. This Summer it's all about dewy and glistening skin... enter the illuminator. NARS claims that this glow-reflecting liquid will "light the skin from within". Now that's something I'm sure we can all get behind!
LUSH Big Shampoo - This gritty shampoo (it's made with sea salt and smells exactly like fresh laundry!) is basically my favorite thing ever. Even though Lush recommends using it as a deep cleanse once a week, I tend to wash my hair with it at least twice because it's just too good. Since I scrub my (rather long) strands everyday, they can get pretty limp weighed down quickly. This buildup-stripping product removes all of the styling residue and gives my hair just enough bounce to flip it around like Beyonce... it's a good thing.
