MoroccanOil Hair Treatment.
This is still my “never leave home without, would grab in case of a fire, take to a deserted island, must have” favorite hair product. It smoothes my hair and adds exceptional shine and manageability. Plus, it smells wonderful. Available at many local salons.
DevaCurl 3 Step System.
I’m not sure if it’s what they put in these products (healthy oils and botanical extracts) or what they leave out (sulfate, paraben and silicone), but using them actually gives me curls I like rather than ones I fight. Available at Salon Nouvo.
Bubbles by Brooks Shaving Soap.
I’ll never use shaving cream again. This pretty, compact orb comes in lovely scents, contains clays to help render an ultra-close shave, and avocado and wheat germ oils that leave legs soft and smooth. Bonus—it’s made here in Rochester! Available at www.bubblesbybrooks.com.
bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara.
My latest must have! I’ve tried every mascara on the market and this is THE one that doesn’t flake in my contacts or migrate onto my face and provides great length and definition to my lashes. Love! Available at About Face.
Jane Iredale LipDrink SPF 15.
It’s a little spendy ($12) but the lack of petroleum and the addition of macadamia nut, lemon, and orange oils make all the difference on my lips. A truly transformative lip balm! Available at www.shop.janeiredale.com.
