I’m making it my mission to finish all of my products before I run out and buy something new. After cleaning up my room (a bit) I realized that I SOOOO many beauty products that I haven’t even touched. So, here is the first batch of products I’ve been loving lately…
A new to me brand, Kinara means “on the edge” in Hindi and is all about bringing spa services home. The Kinara Weightless Infusion is a serum/gel combo that contains peptides, powerful antioxidants, and skin lightening agents that creates an oil-free primer. I apply this underneath my moisturizer top prep the skin.
Speaking of moisturizer, I’ve been using Patyka Ultra Riche Radiant Face Cream that has Rose Hip Oil which improves cell regeneration and increases collagen production. It sinks into my skin, doesn’t have an overwhelming scent, and doesn’t leave me feeling greasy. The last skincare product is Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Eye cream. I’ve already spoken about Rosa Arctica face cream that I was using (and finished to the core!) but this eye cream revitalizes the appearance of skin in the eye area over time, smoothing crow’s feet and lifting the eye contour area. I don’t have any concerns in the eye department now but, hey, it doesn’t hurt to start early!
Moving on to the hair department, I’ve eased out of using too many products now that my hair is short BUT I haven’t completely abandoned ship. I’ve been relying on oils to tame frizz, keep my hair shiny, and easy to style. My number one love has been Kerastase Elixir Ultime Moringa Immortel. A lightweight oil for damaged hair, this has a lovely scent (as all of the Elixir Ultime oils from Kerastase do) and is rich in Vitamin A and C. When I’m not using Kerastase I go to my trusty friend, CLEAR Ultra Shea Nourishing Scalp & Hair Oil. I’ve waxed poetic about this before but it’s non-greasy and lovely. I’ve been applying this to my scalp versus my hair itself just because I’ve been having dry scalp lately and no one wants to see dandruff flakes flying about. Ew.
Lastly, I recently received a sample of Garnier Fructis’ Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment. A wee bit heavier than the previous two oils (but not to the point where my hair is lying flat and gross), a little bit goes a long way to tame frizz. I love it best when applied to wet hair then blow dried.
