I am not a fan of thickening formulas for mascara as I feel they only add clump to my lashes. So I always look for mascaras that are all about lengthening. I’ve already raved about Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes, but I have a new favorite mascara from the folks at Maybelline. Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara does amazing things, like making my lashes look long and luscious without adding any unwanted clump. I even layer it with Lots of Lashes now and then for a beautiful, notice every single lash, look.

I recently realized I had a sensitivity to SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and have since been going through all the items in my beauty regimen to eliminate this pesky ingredient — you’d be surprised what you find it in. My favorite daily face scrub had SLS in it, so it had to go. This is why I tried Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian Facial Scrub. Their packaging clearly states: “100% Vegetarian. No: Animal Testing, Artificial Colors, Parabens, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Methyl Sulfate,” so I figured I was in good hands. Even though I tried it because it didn’t have that pesky SLS, I adored it for other reasons. It left my skin absolutely fresh and glowing, it wasn’t harsh and didn’t dry it out, and it smelled divine (probably due to the pineapple and papaya enzymes). Needless to say I have a keeper on my hands.

I already shared my strong like of the John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo and Conditioner (missed it? read it, here!). So it was really only natural that I try the other products in the line. The John Frieda Full Repair Perfect Ends Sheer Mist is truly amazing. Immediately after I towel-dry my hair, I gather it all together and spritz a couple of sprays of Perfect Ends on the front and then a couple on the back and I comb it through. You only need a little bit and you only apply it to the ends. It helps your ends lock in moisture so that as you blow-dry your hair they don’t dry out and show signs of damage. It also doesn’t weigh my baby fine locks down one bit.

You wouldn’t believe how difficult it can be to find a good blonde eyebrow pencil. Often there is only one blonde shade and it’s often still too dark, or sometimes even too light. But Laura Mercier’s Eyebrow Pencil comes in five shades, including fair blonde, soft brunette, warm brunette and brunette; with two blonde shades I knew I had found my match. It’s also super easy to apply with its standard pencil point tip and I find it defines my eyebrows perfectly.

I recently got my hair cut and highlighted, and the chick who does my hair did such a good job styling it that I was inspired. My hair dryer and fancy round brushes are getting all sorts of use these days and my hair has truly never looked better. But it’s not because of the styling tools, it’s because of one magical styling product, Davines Momo Moisturizing Anti Aging Daily Cream! This stuff is like a magical potion for my hair, between the heat styling and color treatment one would think my hair would be slowly getting drier and drier by the day. But Davines Momo Moisturizing Anti Aging Daily Cream keeps it soft, manageable and beautiful. I simply take a pea-sized amount and lightly apply it to my hair when I’m all done styling it. I pay extra attention to the ends and I can tell they appreciate it.
