Skin & Hair Routine | Fall/Winter 2017

Hello Lovelies!

Today I thought that I would put together my favorite products for my skin and hair, so that as we enter the end of Fall(Autumn) and head into Winter, you can prepare for the cold that tends to wreck both our hair and skin.


These tips I have are for my very oily T-zone, and normal to dry skin pretty much everywhere else. I tend to get my breakouts on my nose, forehead and sides of my face.

When washing my face, I like to first exfoliate with St. Ives Blemish Control face wash. Note that you should not use this every day, I like to use it 2-3 times a week depending on how clogged my pores feel.

Next, I love to use this Neutrogena Hydro Boost as my every-day face wash. This is a gel face wash, so for those of you that also have oily skin, this is perfect for clearing out that extra oil. At first, I didn't think this cleanser was "strong" enough because it didn't have any exfoliants in it, but I finally took the time to educate myself and over-exfoliating makes your body produce more oil so I was only ever making it worse for myself

Now, I used to think that Micellar water was a joke, but honestly it clears out all that gunk that you don't think is on your face, but it really is. I used this once in the morning before I put my makeup on, and then right before bed so my face feels super fresh and clean. I use the CVS brand, because I have found it's exactly the same as the very popular Garnier one.

For moisturizer, I have fallen in love with the Garnier Moisture Bomb. Again, this is a gel moisturizer, and the minute I discovered this, my skin has never been the same. It not only smells amazing, but it leaves my face feeling so hydrated and soft, with none of the oily finish that other lotions have left on my face.

Finally for spot treatment, I use the CVS Acne Spot Treatment with Salicylic Acid. I am lucky enough to only get a couple breakouts or blemish come up on my face when I haven't been drinking enough water or my hormones are whack. This spot treatment works really well for me, but note salicylic acid does not work for everyone so it may take some trial and error. (You can get any generic brand of this)


Since a lot of my blog consists of hand/nail photos I am always looking for the best hand creams, and nail oils.

For my body, and hands I use the Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion. This smells amazing and melts into the skin quickly. It's a not too liquidy, and is really great to keep on you desk in the winter months.

For when I can tell my hands need just a little bit more, I use the Jenna Hipp hand and nail cream.

Lastly, the nail oil I use is just straight up jojoba oil. I made little "nail oil pens" that I keep at my desk and next to my bed, and I apply these 2 times a day to keep my cuticles well oiled and looking neat. This also helps prevent hang nails, and in the winter those can be killer.


For hair I have 2 shampoo and conditioner duos that I like to switch between.

First I love and have loved Tresemme for as long as I can remember. It is one of the few products that leaves my hair silky soft after washing out the conditioner.

And my newest love, is the Not Your Mother’s Naturals Linseed Chia Blend & French Plum Seed Oil Volume Boost shampoo and conditioner. Not only is this the best smelling shampoo, but when my hair is falling flat and sad, this shampoo and conditioner duo really brings it back to life.

Now, your girl also gets oily hair, and lives a crazy busy life, so naturally, I need dry shampoo. My 100% favorite is Batiste Dry Shampoo. This brand does not make my hair crunchy, dusty, or too white -- which I love! I 100% recommend!

And that’s all for now, let me know if you use any of these, or what your favorites are! I love testing out new products so please leave suggestions below. xxx
