It is just me or does it seems like summer is almost ready to go back on vacation? These weeks & months are passing by so fast that a belle can hardly keep up. One thing I’ve been keeping up with is my hair/skin care regime. I often switch products & look forward to finding new potions & gadgets to make my life more enjoyable/stress free all while saving a few pennies. If I can save money by doing certain beauty related tasks myself, then I’m all game.
Nothing makes this chick happier than rockin’ a fierce head of curls or walking around with almost flawless skin. Let’s face it, no skin can be 100% flawless all of the time, right? *side eye* At least mine isn’t, honey. I am bound to have a break out or two from time to time.
Recently, the sis & I were sent some fab products to try & we can’t wait to share them with you. Check out some of these must-have items that we’ve been testing/playing with for some time now.
First up is Beauty Chic’s Facial Sauna. Yes, it’s cute & super easy to use (plugs into the wall). In the past we’ve paid a pretty penny for facials & let me tell you that this little pink cutie gets the job done just as fast/well. The hot steam makes your skin soft & open your pores.
The coolest part is that the steam can be used as hot therapeutic goodness to your nose. How? Well, the steam that’s created when you add water to the device is soooo soothing & it opens your nasal passage. Talk about a top notch DIY gadget, huh?!
This sauna has helped this stinkin’ cold I have tremendously. Score for me!!! Woot!! Also, before I forget, the mask kit smelled divine & was simple to use. My skin felt so much better afterwards. You can find this sauna everywhere from Ulta to Target. It’s less than $30 & can be used with any facial mask of your choosing. Pics below.
The lotions from derma e® pictured below are our #2 must-haves for summer DIY skin care. Why we like ’em? They work VERY well. Are natural, USA made, are paraben-free, vegan, creamy, & award winning.
Skip the spa & pamper your own skin at your home. My skin is always extremely dry & sensitive, but these 3 items below are pure sweet heaven on Earth. My fave is the Vitamin E Intensive Therapy Body Balm. Anything with ‘balm’ in the name is alright with me. LOL 🙂 I even used this after my mini at home spa day with the Beauty Chic Facial Sauna a while back.
This balm has a very light scent & is filled with all types of nutrients to make your skin softer. You can find it at Whole Foods or by visiting their site here. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now & it’s a keeper that’s used daily. A little of it goes a heck of a long way!!
Last, but certainly not least is Bed Head TIGI’s Rock N Roller. We love this brand & their irons!! They are simply thebomb.com. Did you see my review on another BHT item (here along with a video)? Frankly, y’all, there is no need to spend money on getting your hair professionally curled when you have these babies. They produce great texture & fierce curls. Celeb-like curls in a matter of no time in the comfort of your own bathroom = 2 fist pumps in the air!!
The Rock N Roller looks a lil’ weird, but is easy to use, come with fab instructions, & have two different curl textures that you can achieve with this one gadget. You can curl your hair in between the grooves or fully around the balls. Once I upload my tutorial on YouTube (hopefully before next week is out), I’ll update this post with it. Sneak peek below!
*Saturday (7.20.2013) morning I’ll be talking about these items live on Fox 6 News for all of our hometown peeps! See you then!!!!
So, do you have any DIY gadgets/lotions/etc. that you can’t live without or ones that make your life less stressful? Your fave belles would love to hear about them!!
