Over the past month I’ve gotten the chance to try out quite a few new beauty products for the AOL Beauty Awards!
I used to be a total beauty product hoarder, but, after moving apartments several times since graduating college, I’ve come to appreciate the beauty of minimalist living (this also applies to clothes, surprisingly)! If I do end up trying something new, it really has to wow me in order to get a permanent spot in my beauty vanity (I use this drawer set from IKEA). Here are some of the best products I got to review:
Becca Perfecting Powder– This powder felt so light and natural! It kept me from getting oily the entire day and also did a great job at minimizing the appearance of pores.
Living Proof Split End Mender– This stuff is amazing!! It made my hair look like it had been freshly cut and blowdryed! My hair had such bounce and I even got a few compliments 🙂
Umberto Boar & Nylon Brush– Another hair product I loved! I don’t normally use a brush (I have a wide-toothed comb for detangling), but this brush did a great job at distributing my hair’s natural oils and making it look healthy.
Slipsilk Pure Silk Pillowcase– This was the biggest surprise to me! It feels so luxurious to sleep on a silk pillowcase and I love the cooling sensation against my skin. My hair doesn’t get as static-y and I’ve been getting less breakouts. Major plus- no dry cleaning required!
Be sure to take a look at the Beauty Awards page– maybe you’ll find something you’d like to try 🙂
