John Frieda Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairspray

When I sit down in a stylist's chair for a blowout and she/he asks me what I want, I always answer with "volume!".  Thanks to my super fine, baby soft hair, I always test out products that claim to add body, pump up the volume or thicken and often find most are too heavy.  After blowdrying with Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray (love), I set my style with this hairspray that offers light-weight hold while building fullness.

Leonor Greyl Baume Bois De Rose 

I rub this new sculpting balm through my ends for added definition and smoothness.  It smells like the freshest Spring rose and dries matte, which I like.  

Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done

Having acne prone skin (this is new, wonderful...), I've been nervous to try new foundations, BB or CC creams or of any kind of tinted moisturizer, but took a risk with this one and am glad I did. The tinted formula contains SPF 20 and offers a decent amount of coverage, evening out my skin tone and creating a natural looking canvas.

It Cosmetics CC Eye

I'm obsessed with this.  Truth is, I fall more and more in love with this brand with each product I try.  The tinted, moisturizing serum helps to brighten and correct the under eye area while providing an SPF of 50.  Unlike other formulas, it doesn't dry up and settle into my fine lines.

Palmer's Coconut Oil Body Lotion

Palmer's is a brand I always go back to, because it's gentle and soothes and heals my skin.  This new coconut oil body lotion is light weight (the cocoa butter formula is pretty thick and great for winter), smells refreshing and incredibly moisturizing.
