survival kit

Don't judge my bathroom.

I'm oddly enamored with knowing what products/systems/things people use on their bodies. You know, makeup and schtuff. Instagram got me hooked on nail polish pages and then led me to some make-up pages and now? I'm in deep, friends. This is odd because I spent about 28 years of living with a naked face and now...can't stop, won't stop.

Hair product on the other hand? That has been a never ending quest to figure out what I like that works with my texture and doesn't get too heavy or crunchy or too light or ALL THE THINGS. Anyway, I found perfection:
DevaCurl Light Defining Gel
My hair is thin [but there's a lot of it] and has a tendency to be frizzy. I only use this gel and One Condition from the DevaCurl line. [They have several versions for differehnt hair types.] One of the things I love about the gel is that you put it in your hair, then you can either let your hair air dry, pin up portions to help get lift to the roots, or diffuse it and THEN YOU SCRUNCH IT. If you have curls, you know this is the cardinal sin against curls. touching hair = FRIZZ. Nope, not with DevaCurl. It's made to be scrunched and fluffed and hold your curls beautifully. Me = smitten kitten.

Continuing on the hair train: It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product

Makeup! My eyebrows are unfortunate, it's just how I was born. Darn you thin, sparse, non-face-framing hairs above my eyes.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel to the rescue. Worth every penny.

It may make me a hippie, but this toothpaste! It's GF, Floride Free, and SLS Free [what the heck is an SLS??]. Obviously that's means it's fancy. Dessert Essence Natural Tea Tree Oil + Mint

I'm too cheap to get the swirly, whirly cleaner thing that's so popular, but I did pick up this Oil of Olay version from Target. I love it.
I use Cetaphil as my daily cleanser and then when I want a little more exfoliation I slap a dollop of St. Ives Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub. It smells like sunshine and happiness.

Last, but most certainly not least, the most favorite thing I currently own: THIS.
It's under-eye circle eraser magic. Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser. I'm pretty sure it's made in heaven for people who don't get enough sleep.

BTW, I made this little picture in my bathroom awhile ago. I actually did a whole tutorial, but then I got lazy and didn't show y'all. It's knock-off hand-lettering. And by "knock-off" I mean Microsoft Word + Graphite paper. It was super easy if anyone wants to know how.
I love that it uses the word "sexy" as if I would ever describe myself as sexy. heh. I'm smizing in the above photo. Yup. Looks legit. More "sexy" face attempts.

Stop judging my bathroom.

Tell me your favorite products: 3, 2, 1, go!
