My favorite things.

When you have a blog that host reviews we all get to hear opinions on certain products. Today I am going to tell you about some of the products that I love to use all the time! :)
Let's start with hair!
I LOVE Wen. I got it a couple of months ago and I will never use shampoo again. Never ever, ever, ever, again. My hair feels great and looks so much better! I love the smell of the sweet almond mint.
I use the treatment by Wen about once a month to help with all the damage I cause with all the heat I use on my hair. I add it on to damp clean hair, pop on a shower cap, sleep in it, and rinse it out in the morning!
I have super fine hair so I use the mess out of my Aquage uplifting foam before I blow dry.
It gives me lift and body all day long :)

I finish up with Big Sexy Hair Spray.
It gives all day hold and I don't have to use much.

I have had a lot of skin issues this year so
 I made some serious changes in my shower.

I have stopped using any and all detergents. (This is what inspired me to try Wen too) I went to my health food store and bought some pure castile soap. The Hemp Almond is by far my favorite! I add about 2 Tbs my empty bottle of foaming hand soap and fill the rest of the way with water. I love that it foams for me last forever.

Plus, it is clearing up all of my itchy, dry, skin issues!
I stopped using everything on my face and started cleaning my face before bed every night with my rose petal witch hazel. My face feels great and my little dry patches are gone. It moisturizes with out me having to add another product on after cleansing.

My favorite make up!

I only use Clinique and I love, love, love this mineral foundation from them!
It shaves fresh loose foundation when you are ready for it.

I love that I can carry it in my purse without having to worry about it spilling everywhere!

Okay, I know that this is strange but this is one of my FAVORITE things ever.

I love the way it smells and feels on my lips. I put it on before bed to help dry lips and I also add it over lipstick to make a pretty gloss that is not sticky and overly shiny!

My favorite fall polish is this "Hue are you" from finger paints.
The only problem with a dark polish is that it can turn your nails dark if you don't use a base coat... I don't all the time since I tend to be in a hurry pretty often. :)
To fix this, I use a tooth brush (I have one just for my nails) and I use a whitening tooth paste!
Yes, it works!

And last but not least is my favorite necklaces!
My nest with my 3 babies, my owl from my Grandmother, and my favorite cameo!

Thanks so much for sharing your favorite products! I have wasted so much money on products that do not "deliver" that I really like hearing from other folks what actually DOES work. I saw your post over at "Commercial Break Thursday".

Thanks for sharing! I have a tub of vaseline in every room of my house. It's the best lip conditioner ever. It's also a necessity for diaper changes, IMO!

Love this. I am going to have to check out the Rose Petal Witch Hazel. I have been having some skin issues lately. I love your nest necklace for your babies. I have one just like it but my eggs are olive.
