Winter Favourites of 2014
It's been a whille since I've done a favourites and during these past few months, I have been loving a number of products that I would like to share with you all. Most of the products that I will be mentioning are catered to dry skin and hair. I don't normally have dry skin/hair but since it is now closer to winter time, the weather has become a lot colder so I have been loving products that give a boost of moisture.
The first product I have been loving is the Johnson's 2-in-1 Extra Moisturizing shampoo & conditioner. I have mentioned this shampoo before in a prevous favourites post and it's back here again because of how amazing it is. Some of you might find it's weird that a 20 year old is using baby shampoo, but I promise you the results are incredible. I find that it gives my hair more life to it after being damaged by the cold winter air. It makes my hair shiny, soft and you're not putting a lot of unknown chemicals onto your scalp because it is a shampoo catered towards infants and children.
After shampooing, if I want to take an extra step to moisturize my hair even further, I'll use the l'Oreal Total Repair Replenishing mask. This gives the hair even more moisture and leaves the hair very sleek. I like to apply a small amount to the bottom half of my hair once or twice a week. I wouldn't reccomend applying this everyday. This was inexpensive as well..I believe I purchased the entire tub for $3.99 or something ridiculous like that.
As for my body, I've been loving a few products: The Olay Luscious Embrace body lotion with jojoba butter and crushed orchid extract, the Rituals Shanti Chakra Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Nourishing Body Oil and the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream. These smell SO GOOD. I find certain scents comforting and help me fall asleep at night and these definitely do the trick. They're all calming, soothing and contain properties that are beneficial to the skin. I can also see myself using the Soap & Glory Body Buttercream during the spring and summer because it is such a versatile scent and the subtle lime scent is perfect for the upcoming months.
The only "cosmetic" favourite I have is the Revlon nail polish in Copper Penny. It's the perfect copper/gold for the holidays and the application is fantastic. I find that just 1 coat is opaque enough, however it is a buildable polish so 2 coats make the colour even more vibrant and rich.
So those are my winter favourites! I can't believe it's already 2015. Let me know in the comments below which products you guys love and which ones I should try out :).
Until next time,
