Weesha’s Beauty List

March 7, 2012

 

Just sharing a list of products I am loving at the moment!

John Frieda Crème Serum Overnight Repair– I started using this recently because bleach has killed my hair. My hair is less coarse and frizzy now but I stopped using it every night as it started to make my hair greasy. I use it as a serum after showers as well, perfect for shine and fighting frizz.

John Frieda Curl Perfecting Spray– my favorite hair product of all time! I used to chemically straighten my hair when I was younger and this product helped me transition back to my natural curls. It would curl my straightened hair so I could give up horrible curling irons. Lots of my friends use this on their straight hair to get beach waves or just curl their ends. I use this for smaller, tighter curls.

Boots Curly Hair Mousse– like the previous products, I use this on wet hair (before serum) and scrunch. It’s perfect for when I want bigger, wavy like curls 🙂 Unlike gels or other mousses, it doesn’t make my hair crunchy.

TRESemme Oil replacement Mask– My previous conditioners would give me soft but weighed down hair. This makes my hair soft, light and fluffy without the frizz. I have really thick hair but I’m nowhere close to finishing it after 3 uses- major plus point for me!

Batiste Dry Shampoo– absolutely necessary for when my scalp gets oily and I don’t have time to wash it (don’t judge- I have to condition my hair for a few hours before I get to wash it!)

I’ve just started using the Boots No 7 Protect and Perfect Day cream, Night cream and Eye cream.  I figure now would be a good age to worry about wrinkle protection, no? I have combination skin so I use a very small amount of the day cream to avoid greasy skin . My skin feels a lot softer now and the eye cream- oh honey, let me tell you– I actually look forward to putting it on because it’s so soothing and moisturizing.

Sephora Lip Balm–  does not bleed, super moisturizing and it has that tingly sensation. This has become my holy grail lip balm 🙂

Neutrogena Refreshing Oil- free Wipes-I’m very lazy about washing my make up off so these make up wipes have been kind of revolutionary for me. It’s faster, easier, and they’re so soothing and moisturizing. I actually look forward to using them every morning and night because they make my skin feel great.

Haha, I unintentionally spelt ‘booty’.

Trésor Midnight Rose– I’m so in love with this scent! I think this is the perfect age appropriate perfume- not too young, not too old.  I’m going to stick to this one for a while <3

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle– One of my fave beauty bloggers, Tao, highly recommended this to highlight the cheekbones and nose for a dewy, glowy effect. It takes years to finish a whole box since you need very little product, worth every penny!

Benefit Cha Cha Tint– The most natural looking blush I have ever used. LOVE!

MAC Studio Fix is great for days when I can’t be bothered to wear a whole face of make up. It doesn’t stay on as long as the Pro Longwear line but it has medium coverage and you can use a concealer brush to layer it over dark circles and spots- it’s pretty quick & hassle free.

MAC Pro Longwear Foundation & concealer– I can’t live without these two! They last the entire day without any mid day oiliness, I would say it’s a high coverage foundation so you only need to use a little for a natural look. I also like that it’s not matte so it doesn’t look caked on.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara– I wasn’t even looking for a new mascara but as soon as the sales lady put some on me, I was SOLD.  It really does look like you’re wearing fake eyelashes because they become super long and lush!

I am a lipstick junkie! These are just a few of my faves, I think I’m partial towards the Sephora ones because they smell so great and they’re cheap too.

I got to try a session of Pain less laser hair removal over at Kaya Skin Clinic and it was ridiculous! I felt nothing and it was over in minutes. I’m used to waxing so at the end of my session I was like, “that’s it?!” Pretty amazing stuff but it is a little expensive for me (although, in the long run, I guess you spend more on waxing since laser hair removal lasts for months.)

What are your favorite products? Is there anything you think I should check out?

Love and hugs <3

  • Since you love the No. 7 line from Boots (it's great), you should also try the No. 7 Protect and Perfect Serum.

  • Kanak D

    ooooOOoo just might try the hair products! cause i have really wavy and frizzy hair! 🙂

  • Alexandra Hoover

    Of course I want to try all of these things. Haha I am the worst with hair/skin/makeup products. Anytime somebody says anything good about them I want to run out and buy them immediately to try them out. I looked for that night serum at Target last week and didn't see it, but will have to keep checking for that. I really want to try it!

  • Great picks!!!

    I also love the John Frieda Crème Serum Overnight Repair, Neutrogena Refreshing Oil-
    free Wipes,  the benefit “They’re Real”
    mascara (which I noticed pictured but not mentioned), and the MAC Pro Longwear.
    🙂

  • I like your recommendations. I have a stash of makeup but that just what it is most of the time, a stash! I never use it. 🙁
    I like the concept of dry shampoo, I am VERY lazy with washing my hair.And those lipsticks are just gorgeous. I love looking at lipsticks but I hardly use them, when I was younger I thought it somehow looked oversexed & Lolita-ish & that stuck in my head. I have one Mac lippie, Viva Glam Cyndi which I use once in a while, baby steps. 😛 And I love those B-E-A-U-T-Y blocks.And did I mention how much I love the self love graphics you put at the bottom of every post? Because I really do. <3

    Très sympa cette liste de  produits de beauté, cela va m aider a mieux choisir!
    pour ce qui est de l epilation, des amies font comme toi et elles ne regrettent pas du tout, c est un peu cher bien sur, mais au final, quand tu calcules sur quelques années, c est une réelle économie!!!
    et puis tu n as pas eu mal…^^
    Bonne journée
    A bientot

  • Oh my hair is not naturally straight, it's pretty wavy & has been rebonded for a while now. I love it because it's so easy, but I wouldn't say it's my own. 😛

  • I love the Benefit They're Real! Mascara too, it's fantastic 😀 Doesn't make my lashes stick together or any thing.
