To usher in the autumn season, I thought I'd try something new and talk about a few of the beauty products I've used up recently. I know, I know, that's not very fall related now is it? I'll leave the pumpkin and plaid related posts for later.
Let's start with the products I will (or probably already have) purchase again.
First up we have two of my favorite life savers, Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Special Shampoo and Conditioner. I know I've mentioned my dry scalp in the past, and these products have been a huge help in preventing any flaking or itching. The tea tree in these products really helps clean my scalp without drying it out further.
CeraVe's Moisturizing Lotion for Normal to Dry Skin has been my go-to facial lotion for years now. I've checked out other moisturizers but always go back to using this one.
Aveeno's Active Naturals Daily Moisturizer is a new favorite that I picked up last spring. After trying to find lotions that were more natural and better for my skin while staying on the less expensive side, I finally found Aveeno's natural product line.
One product I haven't used since growing out my hair is L'Oreal's Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray. Since I'm usually too lazy to really do anything with my hair I only really use hairspray on special occasions anymore. I have been meaning to pick up a new can of this though because I do love how well it holds. Plus I can actually stand the smell of this product, which is not always the case for other hairsprays.
The products I will not be repurchasing are all ones I wanted to weed out of my daily routine. As I mentioned above, I have been trying to be more conscious of the type of products I put on or in my body. That mostly involves looking for products enriched with natural compounds rather than chemical ones.
Bath and Body Work's Cashmere Glow Body Cream and Secret Wonderland Shower Gel. I have always been a Bath and Body Works customer, but lately my mind and my body has been unhappy with some of their products. Both their shower gels and their body lotions irritate my skin rather than sooth/moisturize, and I find their scents over the top. I still have some B&BW candles and hand soap that I don't know if I'll be able to give up, but we'll see.
Lastly, Luscious Kisses Hydrating Body Lotion from Victoria's Secret. As far as I can tell they no longer carry this sent. Either way I won't be repurchasing it for pretty much the same reasons as the Bath and Body Works products (they are under the same company).
So there you have it. Now I can finally get rid of all of these empty containers I've had laying around. Time for a serious fall cleaning session.
