TOP 5 is a new series on SewCal Mama. I created it in hopes of sharing more of myself with my readers, which has really become the most important thing to me when running this blog. You guys have inspired beyond words! I have to say, I have gained quite the readership over the last few months! Thanks guys!
Anyway, about the new series.. I will randomly share lists of my favorite things, which might also be one of your favorites too ;) This week’s TOP 5 is a list of my current favorite hair and beauty products.
Since having my son, I’ve completely changed my hair and beauty regimen. Now, it’s all about simplicity, effectiveness and eco-friendliness. I truly believe the saying, “quality over quantity” really pertains, especially with beauty products.
I use the (scrumptious smelling) pequi oil every morning before I blow-dry and style my hair. I usually straighten it with my amazing Godsend, the Paul Mitchell Straightener, which I will never abandon, EVER- It blows every other styling tool out of the water. Next is the BB cream; my newest love, It’s actually been the only cover-up I’ve worn the last week and my skin is really thanking me for it! I never leave the house without (at least) eye liner so when I got the Urban Decay eye liner in my last Ipsy bag, I was not only stoked to try it out but also pretty happy that I didn’t have to go out and buy my usual $5 eye liner from Rite Aid! Last but not least are the makeup removing clothes.. at the end of a long day, all I want to do is hop into bed and pass out. With these nifty little guys, I never have to get back out of bed once I realize I forgot to wash my face. Just leave a pack on your nightstand and viola, ready for la la land. :)
