Miss New Beauty

October 20, 2016

Truth time: I'm not a beauty product addict.  I'm a product loyalist.  Meaning, I don't subscribe to Allure, and I can count my Sephora Insider points on one hand.  But when I do find something I love, I fall hard.  These products had me at hello, instant faves used in heavy rotation on a daily or weekly basis.  I included info on where to snag each one here in Asheville, or you can simply click the product name to shop online.  



1 | Chanel No. 5 Body Oil:  I love the feeling of body oil on my skin after a pampering bath or shower.  I use this when I want to feel a little fancy, or before a dressed-up night out.  A little goes a long way, so this bottle will last a long time.  Local retailer: Belk, Asheville Mall.


2 | Bumble & Bumble Don't Blow It:  I've always wanted to be able to air dry my hair on-the-go but it's a huuuuge no.  Talk about flat and unattractive.  Anyways, I still can't (won't) leave the house with wet hair and expect good things, but this Bumble product has helped a lot.  Here's how I use it: I take a shower at night after Harlow goes down, apply this product to towel-dried, combed out hair, and hit the hay.  When I wake up in the morning, my hair has good texture and body that I can style however I want.  I had to experiment a bit to see how much my hair needed, but I will say I use more than the instructions suggest and I don't have a ton of hair.  I also have to watch how much I apply to my hairline, otherwise my bangs will be a hot mess in the AM.  If I don't heat style it, I usually need to smooth it down a bit, but like I said, body!  Local retailer: Eclipse Salon, Downtown.


3 | Davines Your Hair Assistant Perfecting Hairspray:  The answer to my hairspray prayers!  My thin hair s easily damaged by super sticky hairsprays but needs something strong enough to hold waves or curls.  Charlotte from Ananda West recommended this product and I LOVE it!  It holds everything in place without giving me that helmet head look, and you don't have to use half the bottle to achieve good results.  Local retailer: Ananda West, Wedge Studios.


4 | Dior Fix It Primer + Concealer:  The name says it all.  It's a primer and concealer in one glorious tube.  (And isn't it a pretty tube?  I just love good packaging).  At this point, I have a multitude of issues I need my concealer to correct: under-eye circles, age spots, uneven skin tone, and the occasional blemish.  Fix It helps me correct all of those issues. You really should apply it with a brush (probably not a have to, but I recommend it), and honestly that almost prevented me from wanting to try it.  Just another step I wanted to skip.  I relented and now I think I should've been using a brush all along.  It really helps target the problem area better than just a finger or a beauty sponge.  Local Retailer: Dillards, Asheville Mall.


5 | Aveda Volumizing Tonic:  My pitiful fine hair needs all the help it can get.  This volumizing spray gives my hair lift and shine, and smells so good.   I normally use Bumble & Bumble's Thickening Spray, which I still love, but I'm liking this for a change.  Local Retailer: Natural Impressions Salon, Biltmore Park.
