skin + beauty

Stock your self-care arsenal with these products because they WORK. I never run out of any of them. For reference, here’s my skin/hair situation.

  • Skin type: Combo (oily T-zone, dry around the edges)

  • Skin tone: Olive with warm undertones

  • Hair type: Dark, fine, slightly greasy (especially after the gym)

Scentbird

Scentbird is a monthly fragrance subscription with hundreds of designer fragrances. Use their tailored recommendations or choose your favorites each month. My favorite fragrance is Indigo by Nest.

Olay Whips

Saving grace for oily or combo skin! Olay Regenerist whip goes on smooth and absorbs immediately, leaving a matte finish. This has replaced my primer and keeps my oil-prone skin feeling moisturized.

Beauty by Earth Self Tanner

I’ll be honest with you: Self tanner saves my self confidence on the reg. If you’re ever feeling in the dumps, a fresh coat of self tanner ALWAYS helps. This one’s my favorite because it’s lotion-based and doesn’t dry out my skin. It leaves a natural yet buildable tan.

Eva NYC Dry Shampoo

Smells like a dream, keeps the grease at bay. Postpone wash day a little longer with this affordable dry shampoo that imparts extra texture and fruity-floral scent.

 

Pure Brazilian Miracle Leave-in Conditioner

Better than It’s a Ten, better than coconut oil, better than any other leave-in conditioner I’ve tried. I will never run out of Pure Brazilian, the formula feels light but protects my strands from heat damage. Never greasy, never weighs me down.

Skinceuticals Matte SPF30 Moisturizer

I’ve never met a sunscreen that wasn’t greasy, until now. SkinCeuticals Mineral Matte Defense even prevents oil build up with its mattifying formla. Wear your sunscreen!
