I’ve been trying soooooo many new beauty products lately and I wanted to share a few new favs in my routine. I won’t bore you with a long opening paragraph so let’s just get into the favourites!
As you can see from the products down below I’ve been loving Ole Henriksen! It has been a favourite brand of mine for years but I’ve recently gone back to some of my favourite products of theirs and I’m excited to share them with you!
Ole Henriksen Dark Spot Toner – This is an AHA toner that helps diminish the look of dark spots and texture. I’ve been trying this for a while now and it has done wonders for my overall skin tone. If you have dry or sensitive skin I would not recommend using this every night, every other night should be fine! Make sure you use a super hydrating moisturizer or oil after you use this.
Ole Henriksen Truth Juice Cleanser – This is a really light gel cleanser that conditions and refreshes your skin. It love it’s refreshing scent and how clean my face feels after I use it! I use this as a second cleanse, it’s good for all skin types and Orange, Lemon, Rosehip, Gojiberry and Seabuckthorn extracts to help nourish your skin! This has very quickly become my favourite cleanser. I’ve repurchased it twice.
Ole Henriksen Walnut Scrub – I know physical scrubs are a bit controversial in the skincare world, but this scrub is LIFE CHANGING. It actually foams up a little bit and really cleanses your pores. The physical exfoliant in this is crushed up walnut powder, ginseng and chamomile extracts making it very gentle but effective. It’s helped so much with texture around my chin and forehead. If you’re looking for a facial scrub I highly recommend this one!
The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm – I’ve been using this to take off my makeup and I’m OBSESSED. Warning though, it is SUPER thiccccc. It doesn’t strip the skin at all and the oatmeal in it really helps soothe any redness. Also it’s $13, which is amazing. The tube is a little bit hard to squeeze but I promise it’s worth it for the product.
Caudalie Hydrating Mask – I have no idea why this product isn’t talked about more because it is truly amazing. It has grape seed oil in it making it super nourishing. I put a thick layer of this on at night and sleep in it – no need to wash off! I wake up with super plump, hydrated skin. This will also help with redness or aggravated skin. 1000/10 recommend for dry skin!!
Youth To The People Superberry Oil – I love this brand so much so I knew their oil wouldn’t disappoint. I like that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling super oily but really packs a hydrating punch. It’s main ingredients are Maqui, Pricky Pear and Acai, which in combination help with fine lines, wrinkles, dryness and dullness. A little goes a long way so this should last you a while even if you use it every night. Definitely one of my favourite facial oils at Sephora.
Some of you may know that a few months ago I was dealing with severe hair loss. My hair was broken and falling out in clumps. I decided to add in some new products and BOY did they ever help!! I barely have any hair come out in the shower or in my brush now. I’ve been using these products for a little over 2 months and my hair has grown so so much.
Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask – This is the best hair mask to ever exist don’t @ me on this. It is SO nourishing without weighing hair down. The jojoba seed oil in this really helps strengthen the hair. I only use this on my mid-lengths to ends. I’m almost don’t wanna share this with you guys cause I’m scared it will sell out LOL. Truly the best hair product by Amika.
Fable & Mane Hail Oil Treatment – This is a pre-wash root treatment that you apply directly to the scalp. It has dashmool, ashwagandha and castor oil, which together helps support your scalp, nourish your hair and GROW your hair!! This has been my secret weapon for hair loss. I use it once a week and I sleep in it. The longer you leave it on the better. I noticed results after the second time I used it – I went to shower and literally had no hair come out in the shower. Insane. Idk what the heck this magical product is but it’s AMAZING. I will warn you though that it does have a pretty strong floral scent.
Olaplex Bonding Oil – I use this on my damp hair before I blow dry. I love how lightweight it is! It’s made such a difference on my split ends and really nourished the hair without make it feel heavy. I also really love the packaging of this product because it prevents you from using way too much. You only need like 3 drops! One of the best hair oils I’ve tried so far.
IGK Good Behaviour Prep Spray – I’m a big fan of IGK products and this new one has slowly become a personal fav. It detangles, is a heat protectant, controls frizz and hydrates. You get a lot of product for the price and my hair has never looked so shiny after using it!! I also love that this product os a 4 in 1 so it’s cost friendly.
Olaplex Bond Smoother – This is a leave in styling cream that hydrates, tames frizz and repairs your hair. I mix the Olaplex bonding oil in this cream and then apply to my hair. This has been a game changer for when I’m lazy and don’t want to blow dry my hair. It leave my hair looks so smooth, healthy and hydrated. I LOVE this product and will definitely be repurchasing.
I don’t have too many products to share with you in this category but I figured I would share the few that I have been loving.
Nécessaire Body Lotion – This has no scent and is sooooo hydrating. I lather this on post-shave and I swear my legs stay hydrated for days. I love that it’s in a tube and the application is easy. It sinks into the skin easily and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky or gross.
Ouai Scalp+Body Scrub – I love how hydrating this scrub it and how luxurious it feels. It has this amazing rose and bergamot scent that makes you feel like you’re at the spa. I love using this to scrub off fake tan or dead skin. And it can be used on your scalp too!!
Nécessaire Body Wash – My fav scent in this body wash is the eucalyptus. The Niacinamide in this really helps cleanse the skin and I’ve noticed that since I’ve been using this I longer get textured skin on the back of my arms. Love this. I’ve repurchased it twice.
Ouai Chill Pills – These are the ultimate bath must-have. They are jasmine and rose scented bath bombs that are filled with jojoba seed oil, safflower seed oil and hemp seed oil. You’ll come out of the bath feeling like a smooth, hydrating queen. Plus the scent is so relaxing.
