4 Products that Get Us Through the Day

1) Head Organics Anti-Frizz Serum. This little bottle of wonders is under $11, organic, and will keep fly-aways at bay all day. Perfect for the chemical-conscious and cost-conscious girl that has no time for hair nonsense.

2) Motives 10 Years Younger Spray. By 8AM our makeup is on, looks great, and we all just sort of pray that it’ll last past lunch. Motives 10 Years Younger is a gentle spritz for your face that sets makeup after initially applying it, and refreshes it even after a few hours. The formula is oil free and paraben free, and it’s the perfect little tool to keep in your desk drawer so you don’t have to stress about touch-ups before afternoon meetings.

3) Super by Dr Nicholas Perricone Eye Cream. This melon-based eye cream uses carotenoids for bright, fresh eyes. It primes. It hydrates. It de-puffs.  LOVE. I personally keep this one in my bag because the size is cute, small, and easy to tote around for the never-expected eye cream moment (like when you didn’t sleep the night before, are hopping on a plane, or generally feel like an exhausted mess). By the way, this one is free of all those nasty chemicals that scare the holy moly out of most people like parabens and petrochemicals.

4) Kerastase Elixer. If you’re into argan oil or any type of weightier hair serum, this product will rock your world. When heated between the palms of your hands it becomes the smoothest, lightest gloss you can imagine with the ability to totally tame curls, waves, and general frizz. I tried this one in my thick curly hair with tremendous success.  Added shine, control, and no build-up feeling or sticky residue.
