Currently Loving | The Haircare + Skincare Edition



Hello, beauties! Do you have your autumn haircare + skincare game on yet? I wanted to share a sampling of some brands and products I have been loving lately. They are all for your hair, body, and/or skin. Here we go!


I love me some TULA and this duo did not disappoint! TULA is built on the belief that the same ingredients that are good for your internal health are also good for your skin.


The revitalizing eye cream uses probiotic power to minimize fine lines and dark circles while hydrating the delicate skin around the eyes. It is infused with grape seed oil and ascorbic acid to shield your skin and restore its natural balance. TULA's patented probiotic technology strengthens skin’s moisture barrier and increases antioxidant activity, locking in hydration and protecting against harmful free radicals. Morning and night, gently pat a small amount beneath the eye and massage delicately up the brow bone and eyelid for hydration around entire eye.


The illuminating face serum targets dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and dull skin. The result? A youthful glow. It is made with citrus extracts to brighten the skin and safflower oil which helps the regeneration of new cells. Reveal a radiant complexion with this instant skin brightener. Massage a dime size amount onto clean skin in circular motions. Allow serum to absorb fully. You feel it sinking in, yet it has a lovely lightweight consistency.


From the Argania in Morocco to the Melaleuca in Australia, artnaturals products contain the highest-quality oil extracts to give your beauty regimen international nourishment. Fusing beauty and the art of nature, the brand harvests affordable, health-conscious products for your skin, hair, and body.


This age-defying serum trio set hits all the target zones with Vitamin C Serum, Retinol Serum, and Hyaluronic Serum. The anti-wrinkle power targets dark circles, fine lines, and damage from the sun’s UV rays. The serums use soothing Aloe Vera, hydrating Jojoba Oil and skin clarifying Horsetail Extract that combine in an all natural, skin-moisturizing shield. Cleanse the face thoroughly and apply Vitamin C Serum. Let dry then apply the Hyaluronic Serum and apply makeup (if applicable). Use Retinol Serum at night after makeup removal.


Ideal for all hair types, this all natural and organic leave-in conditioner repairs and restores dry, damaged hair while promoting healthy growth. Made with Argan Oil, it naturally transforms dry, frizzy, and unmanageable hair. Hydrating vitamins E & B, found in virgin Argan Oil, gives your hair a radiant and smooth brilliance while helping to repair split ends and moisturize your dry scalp. After rinsing shampoo, apply a generous amount to hair. Comb through hair to allow for even distribution. Do not rinse. Style as usual.


Terrycloth may be suitable for towels, but it’s time to toss traditional washcloths. Be good to your face with ultra-soft microfiber instead. Why? Scrubbing with terry cloth can easily damage fragile facial skin causing inflammation, and many people make the mistake of over-exfoliating. But high-tech microfiber is easy on your skin, absorbent and gently removes makeup while buffing away impurities and dead-skin cells without causing irritation. These microfiber washcloths are labeled as baby cloths, but they work great on your face! They are gentle, lightweight, and fast-drying, which means bacteria doesn’t get trapped in the fabric.


Get gorgeous, glowing skin with these ultra-nourishing, pampering, and playful animal face masks. Masque Bar Pretty Animalz Sheet Masks come in fun, animal-inspired prints. Each mask does something special - whether it’s energize, brighten, purify, or hydrate the skin. The masks not only make at-home pampering relaxing and luxurious, but also perfect for silly selfies, parties with friends, and skin care on-the-go.


This toning body lotion from Le Couvent de Minimes has a sparkling citrus scent for a soft and invigorated skin. Its formula enriched with nourishing Shea Butter, refreshing Blood Orange, and revitalizing Rosemary. The invigorating formula leaves the skin supple and refreshed.

Need a soothing foot cream for dry and tired feet? This formula has a refreshing and emollient texture made with nine plants well known for their beneficial properties. The Hiker's Foot Healer helps to soften skin and soothe hot, tired feet. Its non-greasy formula is quickly absorbed. The feet feel lastingly nourished and relieved, skin is soft. Recommended for anyone who puts their feet to the test on a daily basis.


Katie Sturino of the12ishstyle has launched a product collection called megababe. This line of thoughtfully conceived and expertly crafted products take the annoyance out of being a woman. I tried the anti-chafe stick, formulated with aloe, pomegranate, grapeseed oil and Vitamin E. The formulation allows for maximum protection and a smooth, frictionless glide in the thighs. A single swipe creates a friction-free barrier that sits on top of skin, allowing thighs that touch to glide against each other instead of chafe. As you move, thighs stay cool and free of irritation and painful rashes. Yes, you must try this. Unless you have that thigh gap thing going on. Then, never mind.


Live Clean creates eco-friendly beauty products that are made for the entire family. The brand has a simple vision: to create high-performance body, hair, and baby products that celebrate natural beauty while honoring the earth.

Live Clean's argan oil restorative shampoo gently cleanses while restoring natural luster. It is enriched with 100% pure Argan Oil, certified organic Grape Seed, and Olive oils for enhanced long-term conditioning and shine. Argan oil is an ancient beauty secret used for its highly concentrated natural source of vitamin E and antioxidant properties. Follow with the argan oil restorative conditioner to hydrate and nourish without adding any excess weight.

From the same line, the replenishing body wash also features Argan Oil to nourish and replenish the skin for improved texture and tone. Certified organic botanicals of Grape Seed and Olive leaf extracts also help to protect the skin's moisture barrier. Live Clean Body Washes are formulated with certified organic botanicals to gently cleanse and moisturize leaving skin feeling soft and smooth.


I have been loving this duo from Derma e! The Radiance Toner exfoliates and improves texture. While the Illuminating Rosehip Cranberry Face Oil works deep into the skin to reveal a more radiant complexion.

This alcohol-free toner hydrates and rebalances skin. Derma e Radiance Toner Glycolic Acid & Rooibos rejuvenates, rebalances, nourishes and hydrates. It also exfoliates and deeply cleanses pores for soft, smooth skin. I like using the toner to prepare for the next step in my skincare routine.

This fast-absorbing illuminating face oil tightens and tones skin. Derma e Illuminating Rosehip Cranberry Face Oil is incredibly lightweight, fast absorbing, and non-greasy. It provides a concentrated boost of intense hydration for soft, smooth skin.


Kneipp is a body care line I have just been loving these past few months. It has a philosophy of wellness on time-honored natural remedies for your body's overall well-being. The products feature nourishing essential oils and mineral-rich brine salt to detoxify and revitalize your skin while botanical oils and extracts hydrate and condition.


Let's start with a few Kneipp lotions and creams. The lavender body lotion is blended with high-quality essential lavender oil and the beautiful fragrance of nourishing sweet almond oil. Not only will your skin be soft, your mind will be comforted too. The moisturizing formula with vitamins A, E and panthenol regenerate the skin.

Kneipp almond oil body cream is a combination of jasmine and argan oil and other nourishing oils. High-quality almond milk extract and natural almond oil moisturize and keep the skin soft for prolonged periods of time. This one is great for very dry winter skin.


Using Kneipp in the shower is just as lovely. Gently cleanse and refresh with the lemon mint shower foam. When mixed with water, the gel transforms into a unique, creamy foam. The lively fragrance of lemon mint, along with the nourishing avocado oil, cleanse and moisturize the skin.

Try Kneipp's almond blossom body wash containing almond and jojoba oils, for sensitive skin. This soap-free and pHbalanced formula cleanses gently, leaving skin soft and supple. The plant-derived conditioning formula actually improves the feel of the skin during and after showering.


From relaxing to muscle comfort, Kneipp’s Massage Oils contain essential oils and give off enchanting fragrances. It is the perfect combination for a stress relieving massage. The key ingredients in each oil offer something special to help you relax.

The relaxing formula contains natural lavender essential oil. The intensely pampering massage oil unfolds its balancing, aromatherapeutic effect on the body and mind while massaging. Lavender is known to help calm and relax the body and mind, improve mental well-being, promote better sleep and ease pain and tension.

The joint and muscle formula contains arnica and ginger extracts, shea butter, sunflower oil, and almond oil. This muscle massage oil nourishes, relaxes and moisturizes the body. In addition, it is one of the best post-workout remedies as it helps relieve pain and inflammation from joints and muscles.

The back comfort formula contains a natural extract of devil's claw and cajeput essential oil to relax muscles and alleviate headaches. This back massage oil relieves tension and uncomfortable stiffness in your neck, shoulders and back. It is the formula I reach for the most. Emollient almond oil and nourishing sunflower oil naturally nourish and hydrate skin while you destress!

Aveda Essentials


One of my all-time favorite brands, Aveda, sent me some of their essentials. I was so thrilled to try some new products and receive backups of old favorites. If you are new to Aveda, the art and science of pure flower and plant essences is the core of Aveda. Their beauty products are alive with the life force of plants and contain pure essential oils. 


Smooth things out with smooth infusion style-prep smoother. This pre-style treatment creates a smooth surface on hair to make styling faster and easier. It even defends against humidity for up to 12 hours.


Calm your senses with this aromatic oil for bath, body, and scalp. Shampure composition oil calms with an aroma of 25 pure flower and plant essences including certified organic lavender, petitgrain and ylang-ylang. It is excellent for all-over body, massage, or scalp oil.


Instantly thicken hair and expand strands from roots to ends with thickening tonic. Get a fuller style with just one use. It is powered by botanicals including certified organic amla fruit.


Perhaps my favorite of all the Aveda essentials, be curly curl enhancer intensifies curl, combats frizz, and boosts shine on curly or wavy hair. Wheat protein and organic aloe infused styling creme expand when hair is wet and retracts when hair is dry to intensify your curl or wave.


Hold with flexibility? Air control light hold hair spray offers flexible, lasting hold for all hair types. It is derived from pine resin technology for lightweight, workable hold, sprays on dry, and eliminates static. 


So perfect for this time of year, hand relief moisturizing creme deeply moisturizes dry hands leaving them noticeably softer and smoother. Andiroba oil and other plant hydrators protect skin's moisture barrier, helping seal in softness through three hand washes. This always stays in my bag. Always.


Damage remedy daily hair repair is a leave-in treatment that instantly repairs and protects from heat styling. It detangles and helps protect from breakage and damage due to heat styling.


The light phomollient styling foam creates weightless body and volume on fine to medium hair. Air-infused technology transforms a liquid into a foam without hydrocarbon propellants. It adds shine without weighing hair down.


Finally, something else I think should be considered an essential is the wooden paddle brush. I have had mine for well over ten years and it is still one of my favorite brushes ever. This professional paddle brush features extended bristles for easy detangling and reduces stress to hair and scalp during blow-drying and styling. Ideal for smoothing hair during blow-drying to create smooth, straight styles.

How to Prepare Your Car for a Road Trip

Sponsored post.

Are you going on a road trip? Lucky you. Just make sure your car is prepared before you go. Here are some quick tips to remember before you begin your adventure.


Load your GPS. Did you know that you can usually load all of your travel information into your GPS ahead of time? This makes it much more stress-free then trying to find an address or a location while your vehicle is in motion! So put all of your information in and relax.


Make sure you are up to date on routine maintenance. Oil changes up to date? Air in tires? The engine having any issues? Get everything checked out to be sure. Many mechanics will give you an estimate at no cost. It is better to figure these things out now, instead of when you are in an unfamiliar place. Oh, and fill up the gas tank!


Do you have kids? If so, you will want to make sure you complete a car seat check. Certified child passenger safety technicians conduct hands-on tests of a car’s latch system and check the vehicle’s ability to accommodate different types of car seats. Check the list to be sure your vehicle is ready for the car seat.


Clean out your vehicle, especially your trunk. You will want to have all of the available space your car will allow. So remove anything that you will not need for your trip. Get the vacuum out and wipe everything down too. It sets the mood for the whole adventure if you are traveling in a clean, well-maintained car.


Enjoy! It is time to hit the open road. You and your car are both ready to go. Now sit back and enjoy the ride!
