October Hair + Beauty Favorites

Every fall + winter, my skin and hair get extra dry…I wish it wasn’t true, but it’s just the fact of the matter. Recently I’ve been on the hunt for some great products that not only fix the surface, but also the deeper issues with my skin and hair! 

Skinceuticals was so sweet to share some of their favorite brands/products for the fall. (Can I say again how much I love their PR team?! Seriously the sweetest people!) And after trying everything, I can TOTALLY see why they love these products! 

So for you beauty, hair and skincare lovers out there…I’ve got you covered for all your fall needs!

The best shampoo, conditioner + color treatment for blondes!

Skinceuticals sent these blonde hair products for me to try from the Dessange Paris California Blonde line and they are so good. I recently got a new color put in, so I’ve been looking for some products to keep my hair bright + shiny. And don’t worry, they have amazing hair masks, serums and color repair products for any hair color! 

I got to try the shampoo, conditioner, color correcting creme and illuminating elixir. This combination is magic! I especially needed the color correcting creme…it’s super blue and a little scary to put in your hair at first, but it really works and keeps the brassiness away.

The best quick-fix hydration mask ever!

I had never heard of StriVectin before this, but they make such amazing skincare products! I got to try their neck cream (which is going to be super helpful in the dry + cold winter months) and the oxygen infusion mask…which is a new favorite of mine. During the busy week, my skin tends to get dull + congested so I’ve started doing this every couple days and gosh is it a game changer! It takes less than 5 minutes, feels super tingly and gives you that clean yet hydrated feeling.

Not trying to sell you on it or anything, but this is probably the BEST mask I’ve ever used. 🙂

My favorite beauty treatment, cream + sleeping mask //

I honestly never used a sleeping mask until I came to college. But let’s be real…living in a dorm room with a roommate, and getting only a few hours of sleep as it is – I need all the help I can get! I usually hate the feel of eye masks and does anyone else agree that they usually feel too scratchy or tight?! This one by Iluminage is made out of the lightest silk (and we all know how much I love silk!), but completely blocks out light. It’s amazing.

The best hydration mask for dry fall + winter skin!
