January was a rough and extra long month! I feel like I am still recovering, hence the super late post date! Above are the products I used in January and absolutely LOVED! I highly recommend all of these, especially the R+Co dry shampoo mist. I can do a circuit class at the gym and then sit in the infrared sauna for 25 minutes, hop in the shower and use the Spiritualized mist and it’s like none of it ever happened! My hair looks sweat and grease free.
#1. Lancer Omega Hydrating Oil We get lots of dry winds in the fall and winter in California and my skin will go dry almost over night when they hit! This oil is helping me keep my skin hydrated all fall and winter long. I used three drops in the morning before I put on my sunscreen. I didn’t put it on at night because I found when I put it on both in the morning and night I would get little milia bumps on my cheeks.
#2. Foreo LUNA fofo This takes AA batteries and it changed my life! I use it every morning and it’s my favorite way to start the day. It comes with an app (that doesn’t really work all that well, but you don’t need the app in order to use the product.) You can use it at night, too, but I find that it’s not the best at removing make up. So, you’d need to remove your make up first and then use this to wash your face with a foaming cleanser afterwards.
#3. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate This oil completely changed my skin! The horizontal lines on my forehead are noticeably smaller and plumper. I use it every night except for Tuesday and Thursday (when I do my derma roller). It’s not super expensive and it has really made a difference in my skin.
#4. Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo This dry shampoo is wonderful. You spray it on your roots and all over your hair, let it sit for a little while, and then use a small towel to wipe it away. It’s not the best smelling dry shampoo I’ve used, but it’s the most effective so far.
#5. R+Co Spiritualized Dry Shampoo Mist THIS IS A GAME CHANGER!!! I am NOT the kind of person that put a shower cap on and get in the shower without washing my hair. My hair always looks all matted down and greasy. This shampoo mist changed my life! You put it on at your roots and then use a round brush to blow dry it. It takes seconds to dry and you have super voluminous, clean hair. It’s also great for right after the gym as I mentioned above.
#6. Juice Beauty Green Apple Brightening Gel Cleanser This cleanser was great to use in the mornings with my Fofo. It’s not super aggressive and it foams just the right amount to get a nice lather all over your face without getting too messy. My skin felt brighter and using it with my Fofo helped get rid of any dead skin cells.
#7. Manna Kadar Renewing Lip Oil My lips were SO DRY this last month. This renewing lip oil was a life saver. It adds a bit of shine and some color, but not very noticeable. I actually just used it around the house and at night and has made me need to use chapstick less. Definitely needed for those dry winter months!
Onto February we go where I will be trying an eyelash enhancer serum, supplements and multi-vitamins, a vitamin C face oil, a jade roller, and more!
