I received a promotion at work over a month ago and finally started training for my new job this week. It has been a nice change of pace to learn about a new process. Who knew I would be supporting my current employer even before I started working for them?

I am very picky about my beauty products. I am constantly trying new products and looking for the one item that is worth every penny.

For starters, I love my Purpose face wash. It leaves my face feeling super clean and easily washes my makeup off. I use this cleansing wash with my Clarisonic each night.

I have tried a slough of deodorants, but I always find myself going back to Dove. It rarely leaves white marks on my clothes and helps with razor burn. I love the clean, fresh scents and have never tried a scent I didn’t like.

I have been using Aveda shampoo and conditioners for several years now. I’ve tried experimenting with other shampoo and conditioners, but Aveda products are where it’s at. I love the scents and that they are made with natural ingredients. DSC_0037

I picked up this Dove body wash at the end of the summer and love the lather it provides and the pleasant scent. DSC_0038

I have professed my love for Aquage before, and I’m still in love. I use this every day to attempt to add volume to my oh-so-thin hair.

I have also been using this Suave moouse in combination with Aquage. I figure the more, the better, right? I do have to admit that for such a cheap product, this stuff really works.

I am not easily persuaded to buy hair products the stylist tries to sell you, but I did splurge on this Moroccan Oil heat protection spray. I am a sucker for good-smelling products and this stuff has the best smell ever. I also really thinks it helps smooth my tresses and make my hair extra soft.

  1. i used to use garnier fructis hair care products. relatively inexpensive but still worked well. and i love suave hairspray too! actually i am using one of the suave upgraded shampoo & conditioner now, a Moroccan oil infused one. but since chopping my hair off, i only have to wash & dry my hair, no products at all. it’s super nice. 🙂

    and btw, reading your blog really makes me want to run. i’m trying to take at least one week off from running to recover, maybe 2, after my marathon and i want to run SO BAD!!! yesterday i settled for a long walk after work instead, haha. but my husband went running yesterday and i was so jealous. we usually run together and i love it. 🙂

    • Don’t be mistaken, I should not be running either. I am not recovered from this marathon and have been pushing it too hard, too quickly. I am going to have to take the next couple of weeks off. I don’t know how long I will last though.

  2. I really liked my TIGI hair products I got from Menards 🙂 …they were called Love Peace and the Planet. I wish Menards would have those free products again.
