..Friday Favorite: Product Picks

February 10, 2012

I figured I'd share some of my favorite basic items with you guys because someone asked how I keep my hair so healthy (which was super duper sweet of her since I think my hair looks like donkey booty most days).  I'm sure there will be tons more to come but for now here are just s few.

Frizz Ease Smooth Start Shampoo & Conditioner (1+2):  I bought this shampoo/conditioner combo on a whim one day while I was at my local CVS.  I wanted to try something different that wouldn't cost me too much (some of those fancy pants shampoos are just LUDICROUS I tell you).  I was so very pleasantly surprised. I always keep it around and it's hands down the favorite in my rotation. Silky light and clean, just the way I like it.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer & Tinted Moisturizer (3+4):  This little duo (although each would be wonderful in your routine on their own) is just life changing.  Every morning I wake up and wonder how I lived before they came into my life.  The perfect primer keeps all my anti aging products doing their thang by creating a tiny barrier between them and my makeup like a little soldier...keeping them in line and making sure they do their job.  It also makes your skin the perfect texture for foundation application.   The tinted moisturizer doesn't really need any explaining, it's basically more famous than Lady Gaga.  I always wondered why everyone was so obsessed with it, and now that I have drank the kool-aid myself, I know.  Just the right amount of coverage and absolutely undetectable on your skin.  Feels like heaven!


  1. Haha! Your hair never looks like Donkey Booty!

    I use John Freida smoothing creme 'Secret Agent' it's called. But I haven't tried their shampoo, might give it a go soon though because I love the serum.

  5. Love Laura Mercier everything! So amazing! Would love to hear what you think of my latest post today! Thanks, doll!


  6. I also use John Frieda shampoo and I love it. It's on sale at Target all the time. I can often find it for $4 or less with coupons. That's probably why I have a stock pile of 5 bottles in my closet.
