What I Use In Everyday Life.

Published August 5, 2011 by laurrx

Happy Friday!

I have just been sent home sick from work, and I’m the most bored person ever. So I looked around and caught sight of my lil laptop sitting all along wanting to played with. its BLOGO’CLOCK – new word for blogging time!! I like.

(Watching Valetine’s Day Glee and Puck is singing “Fat Bottomed Girls” – to me of course! God i’d marry him!!)

So todays  blog is about my everyday skin/hair products i use. Perhaps not every single day but maybe everytime i wash my hair or every few days as some products are not recommended to use every single day! So to start i’ll begin with hair products.

MOROCCANOIL
This stuff came free with a subscription to Elle magazine and to be frank i had never heard of it at all. But after using it, i noticed such a huge difference. It is applied when hair is damp (i apply after a thorough towel dry). It gives the hair a gorgeous shine and it looks a lot healthier. For best results i always straighten my hair after use. If i am leaving my hair curly i’ll use my Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly (In previous blog).

JOHN FRIEDA LUXURIOUS VOLUME BLOW DRY LOTION
This is a lil travel spray (Top Tip! If i’m looking for new hair products [Shampoos/Conditioners/Hairspraysetc] I always first purchase smaller or travel sized ones. I bought the travel shampoo and conditioner of this and it is actually really good. I don’t know wether it’s because i always dry and style my hair properly now. Before i’d just dry it without sectioning it off, now i use about 4 clips to keep all sections away! This is very impressive and i’d recommend it!

These two, along with the scrunching jelly are my three favourite hair products – the ones i’d take to a deserted island! Now onto the face! (Currently jamming to Artie singing “Pretty Young Thing”)
LET ME TAKE YOU TO THE MAX.

BOOTS ESSENTIAL CUCUMBER CLEANSING WIPES
These are really my favourite ever face wipes. I used No7 ones and they were really just the same. The No7 ones were about £6 and you get 3 packs of these Boots wipes for £3. Sometimes i may need to use two, but its the same with the No7 ones especially if you have heavy eye make up on. These ones being cucumber are all really refreshing, sometimes good to use in the morning and just before applying make up just for a clean and fresh start. I also suggest that if you have make up wipes, store them upside down to keep the topmost wipe moist.

CLINIQUE DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT MOISTURIZING LOTION
(I use ‘Very Dry to Dry Combo’)
I bought this with the other Clinique 3 Step Skin Care products. These were the Liquid Facial Soap in mild and the Clarifying Lotion. Out of all 3 the moisturizer i use most. I use it after washing my face and before applying make up. My skin always changes from oily to dry at different parts of the year. Right now – summer – its very oily. But i still find this useful and to work really well.

NIVEA REFRESHINGLY SOFT MOISTURIZING CREAM
I got this in my stocking for Christmas from my boyfriend. It’s one of them best hand creams i’ve used. I bought another one to take to Florida with me and it really wasn’t as good and the consistency of the creams were different. I’ve used this one, mostly for my hands, but for other things. I bought a Sephora foundation and  it was a bit too orange so i mixed it with this moisturizer and it went onto the skin alot better. It’s also got a lovely smell to it!!

CARMEX ORIGINAL
I LOVE CARMEX!! ILOVE CARMEX!! VASELINE WHO??
I honestly have about 5 full tubes of this bad boy! One in my work locker, one in my hand bag, one by my bed and two in my make up drawer. I used to love Vaseline, but up until i was introduced to Carmex by my sister, Vaseline and I are no longer!! “It soothes, It heals, It protects” – it sure does! It’s great in the winter and summer and autumn and spring! ALL THE FREAKING TIME! There’s also a cherry one and thats awesome, and it’s got a nice lil tingle on the lips 😉

So these are my everyday uses. I know i keep going on about a make up…i am currently trying to put a look together!

Now i may just lay in bed and watch Tangled because the other night while it was on, i was busy busy trying to put together my first blog!

Catch you at the next BLOGO’CLOCK
