Disclaimer: “Beauty” might not be the right word. I just thought “Products someone who never remembers to put on mascara uses on her head” was a little long.
I have a pretty low maintenance beauty routine. Most days I remember to brush my hair before leaving the house. My summer makeup routine involves putting on huge sunglasses so I don’t have to put makeup on.
See? Hat + Sunglasses = hair and makeup done.
Because I have a slimmed down beauty routine I search for great products. I don’t have to use as many products if I start by using good ones.
- Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Dry Shampoo
Do you choose to read or knit instead of washing your hair everyday? Even when it’s summer? This is the product for you. It’s hands down the best dry shampoo I’ve used. It makes it look like I took the time to care about my hair. I like the scent and do not find it overwhelming, but if scent is not your thing (*ahem*Mary-Claire), they even have an unscented option. My friend Laura told me about this product, and I’m pretty sure I owe her a drink for giving me such a great tip.
2. Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream
This stuff feels wonderful to put on. I am now of the age where a night recovery cream is a good thing for me.
3. ROC Deep Wrinkle Night Cream
This stuff? Amazing. I have deep wrinkles in my forehead and this cream has actually improved them. I honestly wish I had taken a before picture so I could do a side by side comparison. I feel like I look at least 5 years younger after using this for two months.
4. Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water
Do you take off your mascara at night and then find more in the morning? I used to. I didn’t put on mascara unless I was going out at night because it wasn’t worth the hassle of getting it off. This actually gets the mascara off. I don’t wake up with smudges of make up under my eyes. After 20 years of using Almay Makeup Remover Wipes I’m happy I made the change. I now randomly apply makeup before leaving the home because I don’t worry about getting it all off.
5. ChapStick Total Hydration Moisture + Tint
This stuff is *insert what the cool kids are saying about great stuff here*. It feels like ChapStick. It looks like lipstick. It is under $5. Please check it out.
