Beauty Obsession: Davines LOVE

I’ve admitted that I’m a beauty product junkie.  When it comes to my skin and hair, I’m a pretty picky lady.  I was using the same Aveda shampoo for the last two years, until my hair stylist gifted me a travel size of Davines Love shampoo and conditioner for our wedding.

At first I was drawn to the name and the simple packaging.  After using it for the last 6 months, I love how it smooths and tames my hair without laying it down.  I have pretty thick hair that is prone to major frizziness, and this stuff does wonders for frizz-fighting.  And it smells fantastic.  What’s not to LOVE?

Waking Up to Great Skin


Olay Regenerist Night Cream

I have a beauty product problem.  I blame growing up with a mom who works in a salon and my teenage obsession with both Sassy and Seventeen magazine.  (Don’t worry, I’ve now graduated to a Lucky/InStyle obsession.)  I’ll stay loyal to a few products, but I usually try something new whenever my tube/jar/container runs out.

My newest product obsession is night cream.  I often hear my friends over thirty wax poetic about how they wish they could turn back time and moisturize more often.  So I listened.   I tried a couple of expensive options, but wasn’t blown away.  Then I read a great review for Olay Regenerist Night Cream in one of my magazines and decided to try it out.

The result?  Absolutely amazing.  I’m slightly obsessed.  There was a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin in the morning, and after a few days my skin was downright glowy.  I’m now on my second jar of it, and I don’t see myself switching anytime soon.

Now if I could just remember to wash my face and apply it every night…

Cleanse Me

As I mentioned, I love to try new beauty products.  However, I’ve never really been a big fan of any particular face cleanser.  I would switch to a new one whenever I ran out, and was never too impressed.  My sister-in-law used to work at a medical spa, and she recommended that I speak to one of their consultants for free.  Of course, I accepted!

After telling the consultant about my combination skin (dry in most places, but prone to the occasional breakout on my nose/chin), she gave me a sample of dermalogica special cleansing gel.  I loved it, and have been using it ever since.  The 8oz bottle lasts FOREVER.  Seriously, my current bottle is going on its 8th month.  The only time I break out is when I fall asleep with my makeup on.  If only there were a solution for that.

The Moisturizer I’m Committed To

I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a beauty product junkie.  Growing up with a mom who works in a beauty salon will do that to you.  As a result, I love to experiment with different recommended potions and feel a thrill of excitement when I buy a new product. 
However, there is one product that I’ve been in a pretty serious relationship with for 8 years.  I started using Kiehls Ultra facial moisturizer  at the recommendation of a college roommate,  and I haven’t turned back.  Well, I did try to switch once or twice, but immediately saw the error of my ways.  (Shh, don’t tell.  I feel guilty enough.)  A little bit goes a long way, and a 4 oz bottle usually lasts me 5 months.
