Get Pretty – Three Faves

Ironically, I wrote this while standing up in my pjs and slippers, with unbrushed hair, no makeup, and really whiny kids running around at my feet.

You know I like a product when I buy it again after it runs out. I’ve bought each of these things more than once, yay!

I have a face washing thing.  I have weird skin, as I’ve mentioned before, I like to wash my face with grapeseed or almond oil once or twice a week, but most days I don’t have time to it, or I run out of clean wash clothes (oh yes, I’ve had laundry problems, but after my confession, I’ve been MUCH better.  Admitting you have a problem really is the first step toward solving it.), or I feel a little oily already that day, so I need an alternative.  This is my favorite face wash.

Earth Science A-D-E Creamy Cleanser

It smells really cool, like fresh apples and pears.  It also has a weirdly pleasing, subtle Elmer’s glue experience going on.  It’s really white like Elmers, and don’t let this scare you, just go with it, but I think it kind of smells slightly like Elmers. It has a nice creamy texture (not sticky like Elmers).  And it makes my face really nice, not dry, not greasy.  I usually follow up with moisturizer but on a really hot day (soon!) I could go without it.  I buy this at my health food store.

My hair is also schizophrenic.  It’s wavy, enough said.  I like this shampoo.  I bought this although I really wanted to buy Wen products after watching Alyssa Milano get blown out (how’s that for search term that’ll get me some hits?!).  I didn’t feel good about buying something from the TV, so I thought this sounded close enough.

Avlon KeraCare Hydrating Detangling Shampoo

I buy it at Ulta.  It smells good and makes my hair nice and soft and healthy.  I have to use the Chi iron on my hair a few times a week, so it’s great if you damage your hair.  On days I let it air dry it keeps me from looking like a fluffy chick.

And lastly, blush.  I once had a friend tell me that one of the reasons she loved me was because of my love for blush.  Now that’s a good friend!  This one looks absolutely insane in the compact, but it’s really nice and sheer on, so it matches any skin tone.

It really works!  It layers great so you can do subtle or cuckoo.  I like to stay somewhere in between those two.  I get this at Ulta too.  It really does look a little alarming, but it does this nice, soft pretty thing to your face.

It broke but I still use it every day – Stila Custom Color Blush

I hope you enjoy these products as much as I do!  (I feel really cheesy right now).
