This is the second post in my series, Best of 2011! I will have two more after this one, fashion and random. When I say beauty, I'm referring to skincare, haircare, and fragrances.
The best shampoo is hard to pick because I never stayed on one for too long and don't believe shampoo is that important to the overall health or your hair, but I have been using Aussi Moist shampoo lately and it smells ah-mazing! It smells of vanilla, coconut, and has a fruity undertone. It doesn't leave your hair greasy or dry, but very soft and just healthy looking.
My favorite conditioner would be, without a doubt, Aussie Three Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner. This stuff has been my holy grail! It smells just like the shampoo, but better and it makes your hair silky and shiny and just plain beautiful. If you could only use one hair product for the rest of your life, I'd use this.
The best hair serum would be the Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide. I use this whenever I am going to blow dry my hair. It makes hair so shiny and smooth. It doesn't make it necessarily soft, but gives the illusion of softness. After I am done blow drying my hair, I take half a pump and rub it on my hair to get rid of any leftover frizzies.
My favorite spray in hair product would be a tie between the Tresseme Heat Protectant or the John Frieda Go Lightening, lightening hair spray. The heat protectant is an essential of mine! It smells like heaven, sprays evenly, and it's cheap! The lightening spray has made my light brown hair have just the right amount of highlights in it without making them look orange. I plan on doing a review on the lightening spray soon.
The best face wash would have to be the Neutrogena Grapefruit Scrub. This has really helped clear up my acne, as well as exfoliate my skin. It's very refreshing and it's not super abbrasive, so I can use it twice a day wihtout a problem!
My favorite moisturizer/body lotion is the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for Dry Skin. I use this not only on my face, but all over my body. It is soooo moisturizing and it doesn't cause my sensitive skin to breakout. You only need a tiny amount for your face, or else it will look shiny and I only use it at night so it has time to soak in. The tub I am using is only half empty and I've been using it for almost a year now.
The best perfume I have been using is the Wish Pink Perfume. I don't think they sell it anymore, which is why I don't use it anymore unless it is for super special occasions. It smells strongly of vanilla and kind of florally. It lasts all day long and I am in love with it.
My favorite body mist/splash is going to be Pretty & Pure by Pink. It's super girly and sweet smelling! I have the mini version because I am not a very big fan of body mists (they don't last very long). I do reccomend the mini one's for lockers are to carry arounf in your purse.
