Aside from blogging here at One Product, I am also the Editor over at The Manifest Co. a blog about Brooklyn-ite lifestyle. Check out the links below to some of our posts this week from a great group of contributors. Enjoy!
Since moving back to NYC, my hair has NOT been happy and what I mean by that is that the humidity, frequent rain and heat has lead to lots and lots of frizz and flat hair. I switched shampoos which normally wakes my hair up, but it did little to make my hair come to life. I thought I maybe needed a haircut (I did) but while that did make my hair look awesome, I was still combating frizz and flat lifeless hair. I knew I needed to bring out the big guns aka I needed to start using some kind of anti-frizz defender of good hair.
I love a little lip product. Clearly. I have probably about 100, I haven’t actually counted but its safe to say thats the number. It can be a problem. Continue reading
I’ve posted about face oils a few times here on the blog, you can check them out here, here and here. I thought for a long time that face oils were bullshit, just pure snake oil, a jar full of lies if you will. But I’ve been converted over the past several months as I get more and more samples of the stuff. I’m quick to fall in love with a face oil with the exception of Argan Oil, I’ve never liked that stuff really for either my hair or my skin. But recently I stumbled upon a face oil from Tarte and I am totally crushing on it, so much so that I recently had a party and as the conversation turned to skincare, as it often does at my house, the conversation was dominated by me going off about this amazing workhorse of an oil.
Tarte’s Pure Maracuja Oil has blown me away. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and my skin looks amazing and radiant. I have not broken out since I started using it either. Whats great about is that it really sinks into your skin, so it really moisturizes, often with oils I find that they don’t sink in as much as I want them too. I use it morning and night and never feel greasy and my face is never an oil slick even if I put makeup over it. Tarte claims that the oil can make your skin firmer, brighter and smoother– I thought this claim was bullshit, but seriously, it does. My skin has never looked this clear or radiant. And with the high concentration of vitamin C I am even finding that my acne marks and dark spots are fading.
This oil is perfection. It does what it says and does it well and has replaced a number of serums, moisturizers and targeted treatments. I am in L O V E.
For me finding the perfect bag seems like a vision quest. I’m always searching. I’ve learned over the years never to settle on a bag if there is one thing you don’t like about it because honestly chances are you are never ever going to reach for that bag. Continue reading
This month I am desperately trying not to purchase any new beauty products. For me this is harder than it sounds. Either way, here is my current list of MUST HAVES that will have to wait until July. Enjoy!
So last week, let me tell you about last week. Last week I fell down the stairs to my backyard. It was only two steps but my legs completely flew out from under me and I landed right on my back and hip. It really hurt and I could not get up, it was so completely terrible and painful that I had to call 911 to help me get up and to the hospital. Thankfully, nothing is broken I am just very very sore. Either way, getting better has been quite a process. For the first week, I could not shower or get dressed without help. Sleeping in a bed was out of the question but thankfully I have a recliner which has been my sleeping post for one too many nights. But how does this relate to beauty? I can’t moisturize after a shower because I can’t bend, so I began to search for something to keep my very dry skin in check.
This genius little kit from Yaby basically solves all of your super quick summer weekending adventures. Each tube is perfectly sized to hold the right amount of product for a weekend adventure without lugging extra stuff. The syringe allows you to fill each tube with your personalized products from skincare to makeup. Its so freakin’ smart, I LOVE it! Bonus is that its TSA friendly and comes with a clear pouch with dividing loops help keep your tubes organized. The clear pouch comes with 6 empty tubes and transfer syringe. Buy it HERE.
I’ve notice that this little pot of gold has been quietly taking over beauty blogs the last few months. After enduring months of chatter I really had to know what all the fuss was about. This post is for my friend Rachael aka Ms. Mixie who will forever be my lip balm partner in crime. Continue reading
