Good morning, beauty lovers! Welcome to this month’s edition of the Beauty Brief. We have many important matters to discuss, like the most luxurious face oil, the secret to a long-lasting manicure, and how to make your hair really, really, ridiculously soft.
First up is Herbivore Orchid Youth Preserving Facial Oil, which is hands-down the best facial oil I’ve ever tried. A luscious blend of jasmine oil, camellia oil, and orchid extract, it’s super rich and hydrating without feeling heavy. It’s also 100% natural. Packed with essential fatty acids and nourishing vitamin E, I promise it will leave your face smooth, dewy and luminous. Ah, the glow of youth…is really the glow of a good facial oil. Side note: it has a very strong jasmine scent, so if scented products bother you, this may not be up your alley!
You guys know of my ongoing love affair with Oribe, and my current favorite is this Soft Dry Conditioner Spray. Typically I can’t go more than a day without washing my hair, but if I’m trying to preserve a blowout (or if my hair just needs a little pick-me-up), this stuff is a godsend. Everyone knows about dry shampoo, but this dry conditioner is just as awesome! It’s amazingly light for a conditioner, and it actually contains superfine powders to absorb excess oil. Seriously, give this a try and thank me later. Your hair will be softer than a baby bunny in a cashmere sweater.
A reliable top coat is one of those things that I never thought that much about – it’s necessary but boring, like car insurance or a good umbrella. But after hearing that others experience chipping after just a few days, I realized that I may have inadvertently hit the top coat jackpot. So here’s the scoop: Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat is the key to a long-lasting manicure. It’s a bit more liquid-y than your average top coat, but it dries really quickly to a high-gloss finish. My manicure usually won’t chip for about ten days, but sometimes it’ll last as long as two weeks!
