Tips For Healthier Aging Hair

Tips For Healthier Aging Hair

As a woman over 50, I see and feel my body changing each and every day. While I’m embracing my life, finding products to help me with some of my new concerns is important to me. One of the physical shifts I’ve least expected thus far has been my hair. No, not the gray hair we all know is coming, but the fragility and texture changes. I’ve been using Hair Biology products lately, which are specifically made for aging hair, and have genuinely noticed a positive difference in the way my hair looks and feels. Hair Biology is a brand that believes in the power of celebrating age and the experience that comes with it.

Each product they offer has been formulated and designed to work with your unique hair biology as you age. Like your skin, hair shows signs of aging, too. The most common signs of aging when it comes to our hair include lack of color, thinning, dryness, and overall hair quality.

Keep scrolling to see what Hair Biology has done for me and tips for healthier aging hair.

Thank you, Hair Biology, for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

TIPS FOR HEALTHY HAIR IN MIDLIFE:

Nourish it

Be sure to include the right supplements such as collagen and a specialized hair supplement to your routine to combat changing hormones that can cause hair loss. A diet rich in protein and fish oil will also help keep your hair healthy. Hair Biology’s Soft & Hydrated collection is designed to meet the changing needs of your hair with a moisturizing shampoo and moisturizing conditioner. The collection is infused with biotin, which improves the body’s keratin infrastructure and supports strong, healthy hair growth.

The hair serum in this line contains Argan Oil, which is packed with antioxidants and is known to increase hair’s elasticity and restore shine. I highly suggest adding it to your routine! I use mine every day to add weightless shine and revive my bounce. In addition, the collection is free of parabens and dyes.

Add Shine 

As I mentioned above, adding products like Hair Biology’s Argan oil can make all the difference in how your hair looks and feels! The soft & hydrated hair serum absorbs weightlessly while it nourishes to strengthen against damage; it will add shine, along with smoothing your ends and unruly grays.

Get Regular Hair Trims

It might seem counterproductive if you’re trying to grow your hair out, however keeping your ends healthy will promote hair growth. My hair grows faster when I get “health cuts” for maintenance! I get mine trimmed every ten weeks.

Add Volume

My hair changed texture as the grays and changing hormones started to take over. I went through a stage where my hair was flat and had zero volume, and it was not fun! I, unfortunately, had to get my driver’s license picture during this stage…Thankfully I was able to regain my fullness, and yes, I waited in the DMV line to retake the picture, haha!

If you are experiencing a lack of volume in your hair, Hair Biology has you covered! The Full and Vibrant Collection is designed to help with volume and add thickness to your hair. This collection is infused with biotin, which is known to improve the body’s keratin infrastructure and support strong, healthy hair growth.

The cherry on top of this collection is the hair thickening treatment that instantly thickens each strand and fights breakage for fuller-looking hair. The treatment benefits are progressive: The more you use it, the thicker your hair.

Add Moisture Regularly

I use a deep conditioning hair mask at least once a week. I have used several over the years, and I am genuinely impressed with how my hair feels and looks after using Hair Biology’s color sealing mask. In addition to leaving my hair hydrated and smooth, this mask has worked wonders to protect my color-treated hair. I color my roots every four weeks, so this formula helps keep my color vibrant. I’m also equally impressed with the color brilliance shampoo and conditioner I’m using. The sulfate-free Brilliance Shampoo gently cleanses without stripping to protect against damage and fade, while the Sulfate-Free Brilliance Conditioner helps protect against color fade and dullness by nourishing over-processed hair. The collection is made with biotin and free of parabens and dyes.

Be Gentle

When your hair is wet, minimize damage by using a wide-tooth comb to protect fragile hair from breaking. Instead of a bath towel, use a microfiber hair wrap like this one.

Embrace The Gray

Color treatments and bleach can be damaging to your fine hair and scalp. If you decide to go au natural, look for specialized products that are sulfate-free to help keep your hair bright and healthy. Hair Biology’s Silver and Glowing line is ideal for helping you fall in love with your hair again. The Silver Shampoo and Silver Conditioner have a purple base that will remove any dulling residue and contracts yellow tones resulting in stunning, shiny silver strands! Finish with the Silver Hair Serum that will melt into a clear serum to meet silver or gray hair needs. It restores moisture and shine while smoothing and softening for healthy glowing hair.

If you follow my Instagram, you saw a hair tutorial about Hair Biology; if not, you can check that video out here!

 

Hair Biology has various formulas to fit your personal needs, such as volumizing products, ultra-hydrating products, taming + styling serum, and so much more, depending on your specific hair journey.

You can pick up Hair Biology to try it yourself at Target where it is exclusively available!

Everything You Need To Know About Eye Creams

Everything You Need To Know About Eye Creams 1616 1080 Tammy Caciola

her fashioned life eye cream

One of my most asked questions is “how do I know what eye cream is right for me?” Fine lines form as we age, squint at computer and phone screens, and even when we stress. Depending on your age and your goals, there are many amazing creams on the market that can apply to you specifically. It’s also good to note that the best creams don’t necessarily have to be the most expensive ones! If you know me, you know I’m a true believer in having a consistent and daily skincare routine because it’s key to having youthful skin no matter what your age. Since the skin around our eyes is different and a bit more sensitive than the rest of our face, it’s essential to take good care of them. From puffiness and dryness to wrinkles and dark spots, keep scrolling for the best eye creams that I’ve been using and loving.

her fashioned life eye cream

Sisley

This luxe eye/lip cream will deliver the hydration results you are looking for. The thick texture imminently absorbs into your skin leaving it smooth. It also comes with this effective eye roller I love!

EYE ROLLER

One of my eye care pro tips is to use a metal roller for a cooling puffing action. You can even store your roller in the fridge to make it cool before rolling. It works best directly after washing your face and applying your eye cream.


her fashioned life eye cream

WAKE UP EYE GEL

Rich in Yerba mate extract, this soothing eye cream by Good Molecules is excellent for soothing and revitalizing tired, puffy eyes. It contains natural antioxidants and polyphenols that fight oxidative damage for brighter, more radiant skin. Did I mention this cream is only $6.00! I reach for it constantly and love how it makes my skin feel!


her fashioned life eye cream

StriVectin ANTI-WRINKLE CREAM

I’m a huge fan of StriVectin and this eye cream is one of my favorites! Say goodbye to those stubborn wrinkles and hello to the best eye cream for younger-looking eyes. This anti-wrinkle cream by StriVectin is formulated with collagen-targeting and skin barrier-strengthening science plus blue light-inhibiting technology!


her fashioned life eye cream

RETINOL RECOVERY EYE CREAM

Dr. Zenovia has created a skincare line targeted toward mature skin. This eye cream specifically targets signs of hormonal aging by softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and brighten dark circles. This is one of my favorite skincare lines.

BEAUTY BY EARTH

COFFEE BEAN EYE CREAM

From sleepy to starry-eyed with a shot of caffeine! I love how awake this cream makes me look even when I’m busy, on the go, and tired. It’s perfect for diminishing puffiness and dark circles as well as softening wrinkles. This one is made for any skin type and any age. I’m very impressed with this cream along with their self-tanning products!


her fashioned life eye cream

GENTLE EXFOLIATING EYE CREAM

The keyword is gentle. Since the skin around the eyes can be more sensitive and thin, it’s crucial to find an exfoliating product like this one. This product hydrates and gently exfoliates the delicate eye area to reveal brighter, smoother skin while combatting fine lines and wrinkles. I highly recommend this eye cream! I’m also addicted to these exfoliating pads!

Top 10 Skincare Products for May

As the weather gets warmer, I’ve been really honing in on a consistent summer skincare routine that gives off a youthful glow and shine. Since the sun and warmer weather bring lots of skin-related issues like sunburns, dark spots, and dehydration, a summer skincare routine is one of the most important ways to stay healthy!

I’m so excited to be starting my new monthly segment where I post my favorite products I use and have been trying. Some I have used for years, and some will be tested for a minimum of 3 weeks. Keep scrolling to see my top 10 skincare products for May. I highly recommend adding to your skincare routine this season.

This overnight mask by BeautyRX will give you a glow in the morning – a soft texture and overnight wonder. It’s perfect for all skin types and is a 3-in-1 overnight mask that improves skin texture, evens tone, and hydrates for a renewed complexion by morning.


Luzern summer skincare for youthful looking skin

Pure Oxygen Creme Luxe

I am genuinely impressed with this powerhouse cream by Luzern. The silky texture is unlike most luxe creams on the market. It’s a light texture that is so effective and leaves my skin instantly soft and hydrated. This creme is new to the American market and contains rich  Swiss Alpine Organics extracted in Alpine Mountain Water and Luzern’s proprietary Multi-Fermentation Complex (MFC).

I’m also including the mineral sunscreen here. The light texture is perfect underneath makeup and never feels heavy. I highly recommend these clean product.


green machine summer skincare

Green Machine Jelly Serum

InnBeauty is the brainchild of 2 women that have a long career in well-known beauty lines. They wanted to create a clean, effective skincare line at a reasonable price. The ingredients in the Green Machine are next-level amazing. As a serum oil infused with superfoods and vitamin C, this jelly serum has visibly brightened the skin on my face, and the hydration is noticeable. I love this product.


Saint Jane Vitamin CBD drops

Saint Jane CBD Beauty Serum

I received this product from a skincare company Haldi Skin. I would have never thought that I would love a CBD beauty serum so much! CBD helps SO much with inflammation, thanks to its nourishing and calming effects. Say goodbye to acne and blemishes, too.


Erno Laszio cream summer skincare routine

Firming Cream

Erno Laszlo is a tried and true skincare line that I have used for many years. Their history goes back to when Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O were regular clients of this brand. This cream is very light but exceptionally hydrating without being greasy. The power ingredient in this is Bakuchiol. This is a natural Retinal that will exfoliate without any irritation so that you can use this during the day as well as the night.


Faded CBD and Arnica for a summer skincare glow

Faded

POST Love has created a product I’ll never be without! Not only will this help with bruising and swelling after beauty injections, bruised lips, and red spots, but this product helps with natural blemishes like acne, too. It has added arnica that aids in additional bruising and swelling.


Summer skincare by Sisley

Black Rose Cream Mask

I’m a long-time fan of all things Sisley! I reach for this plant-based mask when I want luxe hydration that is instant and long-lasting. I bring this cult favorite in my bag when I travel. Applying it in-flight is a gamechanger for my skin! I arrive with plump and hydrated skin! The body cream in the same Black Rose line is also incredible.


Dr Zenovia summer skincare

Peptide + Ceramide Repairing Moisturizer

Dr. Zenovia has created a skincare line targeted toward mature skin. Her star ingredient is in every product – 360 complex. This moisturizer is extremely impressive. This light texture is almost gel-like, so it’s perfect to wear underneath makeup. I don’t even notice it’s there!


rose hibiscus to add to your summer skincare routine

Rose Hibiscus Face Mist

I might have a face mist addition! An excellent face mist not only gives my skin a moisture boost during the day it also instantly lifts my mood. I also love this soft scent of the HERBIVORE rose hibiscus – not too strong, but just right. The ingredients include organic rosewater, coconut water, and hibiscus extract to hydrate and soften the skin instantly. I highly recommend it.


The Instant Facial Exfoliating Pads

Tula is one of my favorite skincare lines. I’ve used these exfoliating pads for many years. These probiotics pads are my go-to when I want my face to glow! I use these once a week, and every time I use them, I get compliments on my skin the next day! They are incredible. You can use Discount Code FashionedLife at checkout.

My Hair Growth Journey With Phyllotex

My Hair Growth Journey With Phyllotex 1440 1800 Tammy Caciola

Her Fashioned Life Hair growth supplements

Hair Health

Alright, ladies… let’s talk about hair health. Have you experienced this not-so-good feeling? Since our hormones change drastically when we age, it’s common to notice a change in the way our hair looks and grows. In fact, studies are showing that thinning hair in women is becoming more common than ever before.  If you’re anything like me, I’ve definitely felt the defeat of unhealthy hair that refuses to grow. Once I reached a certain age, my hair stopped growing and started thinning and shedding; I knew I had to find a solution. I was tired of trying so many different products and still seeing tons of hair in my shower drain! That is until I discovered Phyllotex Hair vitamins and supplements.

After years of searching for a healthy hair supplement that actually worked, I finally stumbled upon Phyllotex. In 3 short months of using this hair growth vitamin, I was pleasantly surprised at how my hair actually looked and felt! By taking only 2 pills per day, Phyllotex has boosted my confidence, and I feel like I have my natural hair back. I no longer find piles of hair in the drain, and I fully trust the science behind the product for overall health.

her fashioned life hair journey

Phyllotex Supplements

Phyllotex is a health-positive hair vitamin that is 100% backed by science to slow, stop, and reverse hair loss in 4 unique ways:

  • Better micro vascularization (more blood is able to reach your hair and skin)
  • A combination of nutrients that are guaranteed to make your hair follicles thrive
  • No more hair assassin
  • Protect hair from environmental stress (sun rays, water, pollutants, and more)

This vitamin has absolutely no gluten, no soy, no dairy, no nuts, and no added sugar. In other words, it’s made up of all-natural, all-vegetarian ingredients that really help hair follicle cells thrive! If you’re struggling with hair health, despite your age, you have to give Phyllotex a shot. You can even use my code TAMMY10 for an additional $10.00 off.

9 Skincare Trends That Will Change Your 2021 Routine.

9 Skincare Trends That Will Change Your 2021 Routine. 2048 2560 Tammy Caciola

2021 SKINCARE AND BEAUTY TRENDS

With a new year comes new skincare and beauty trends! Since many of us have been staying in and soaking up our home sweet homes, it only makes sense that we’ll be seeing lots of simple and clean beauty trends for 2021. Skincare can be a bit tricky nowadays thanks to the masks we’ve been wearing, so it’s more important than ever to take care of what’s underneath! Keep scrolling for 9 of my favorite 2021 skincare and beauty trends.

2021 Skincare Trends

1. Clean and Transparent Beauty

Using clean and transparent beauty products means it’s safer and non-toxic, making them the perfect option for any woman. Sustainable formulas allow skin textures to be truly visible. This more natural look is a big beauty trend for 2021!

I had the please of meeting Indie Lee before COVID hit. She developed her clean skincare line after developing a brain tumor. I highly recommend everything in the line! The body salt scrub is a must-have (it doesn’t make the shower floor greasy), and stem cell serum is one of my favorites!

Elemis Skincare is my latest discovery. I’ve been using the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm and loving the results. Removes all traces of make-up while leaving your skin soft and plump. You can also use it as a mask! I put it on before I take a bath. For my daily moisturizer, I’ve been using this 3 in one anti-wrinkle marine cream. I love that it has SPF 30 and smells so fresh and clean! Other Elemis products I’ve been using regularly are Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads and Superfood face oil. Use Code TC20 for 20% off your cart until 2/28

Other clean skincare lines I love:  Necessaire, and Tula (use code FASHIONEDLIFE 15% off cart)


2. Stay At Home Light Coverage

It’s another year of the natural skin that glows. There’s really no need for heavy coverage, even if you do venture out. I love products like Charlotte Tilbury Healthy Glow that will nourish your skin while giving you long-lasting light coverage. Other Favorites are this Laura Mercier tinted foundation with SPF and NARS.


3. Maskne

I’m sure we’ve probably all experienced it by now – the acne that comes along with wearing a mask for long periods of time. The pores on your face are completely trapped when wearing a face covering, so oils, grease, and makeup are more likely to build up. Even when you breathe or talk, your mask tends to trap lots of hot air. There are, fortunately, several effective products that target maskne. I’ve been using Pause Detox Serum and love it! PCA Skin Acne gel and First Aid beauty clay pads are also excellent choices.


4. Eye Makeup

Since the eyes are pretty much the only exposed part of your face when you go out nowadays, women are focusing more on their eye makeup. Eye trends are coming on strong with colorful cat eyes, groomed brows, and fun eyeliners!


5. Plant-Based Skincare

More than clean beauty, plant-based skincare gives you powerful ingredients like bakuchiol, a natural Retinal. Similar to the clean and transparent beauty product trend, the plant-based skincare fad is being studied more and more in hopes of a healthier skincare and beauty routine. Erno Laszlo’s cream is light, absorbs quickly, and smells fab. Sisley Paris is a splurge but worth it, and Ursa Major had very effective products!


6. Smart Beauty/Health devices

When stuck at home… at-home devices bring the spa to you, including at-home dermabrasion, steamers, and teeth whiting, to name a few.

Red Light therapy will turn back the clock. Effectively diminishing fine lines and plumping your skin. If I get in front of my red light device 3-4 x’s a week, my lips naturally plump, and fine lines like crows feet are diminished!

My Vejo blender helps you stay healthy from the inside out. From collagen blends to immunity support, they have a targeted blend for you. Use this link here and CODE HFL8Pack for a free 8 pack when you check out.


7. Blue Light Protection

Did you know that excessive screen time will age you? Thankfully, brands are starting to create products with blue light protection actually built-in. You will find more and more lotions and serums that have this feature. Some of my favorites are Avene, EltaMD, and SkinCeuticals.


8. Probiotic Skincare

I’ve used these probiotic cleansing pads for years. My skin feels like I just had an in-person facial after application! I highly recommend using skincare with built-in probiotics guaranteed to promote more youthful and rejuvenated skin.


9. Lip Balm

You might as well condition your lips under that mask! Moisturizing lip balm is more important now than ever, thanks to the beautiful masks we’ve been sporting this past year. My lips feel so good and soft after using Dr. Barbara Strum’s lip balm.

My Secrets To Thicker, Healthy Hair After 50

My Secrets To Thicker, Healthy Hair After 50 969 2048 Tammy Caciola

From Thin To Thick

What do you do to get your hair so long and thick? This is one of my most asked questions. Before I implemented the steps I’m sharing with you today, my hair was thinning and would not grow! It was defeating and frustrating. I’m so excited to tell you about my hair transformation and growth secrets to thick and healthy hair after 50.

Targeted Supplements

I’m a huge fan of supplements. I have taken a handful of various specialized vitamins for years now. If I go a couple of days without taking them, I notice a difference in energy, hair loss, nail strength, and at my age, hot flashes! Below are the products that have made the cut over the years of trial and error.

Nutafol

I started taking Nutafol about five months ago. I’m so glad I did because, at the time, I was shedding hair like crazy because of hormonal imbalance. I give this product more credit than any other for my hair growing so long lately. My hair has never been as long and thick as it is now.

There is science behind this brand that makes it so effective. You have the choice of going onto their site and taking a simple quiz to get the recommended supplement, or you can just order it here. The product I use is Nutafol Woman’s Balance. This formula gets to the root of my problem by adding in needed supplements for my peri-menopausal symptoms.

There is also a Men’s formula.

Get $30 off your first month by using the link here! 

Vital Proteins

I was late to the game taking collagen powder. I honestly wasn’t sure it would work.  However, I finally gave in to the hype, and I’m so happy I did! Since I’ve started adding a scoop of this powder to my morning protein shakes over two years ago, I’ve noticed the following results.

  1. Joints/knees do not ache or give my problems as they did before.
  2. My nails are stronger.
  3. Hair is thicker and longer.

Biotin

I’ve taken a 10,000 mcg biotin supplement for multiple years. Taking this seems to help my nails more than my hair. At least that’s what I notice breaks more when I run out and stop taking it.

Protein Shake

Hair is made out of a protein called keratin. This protein provides structure to your hair, giving it its shape and strength. When we do not get enough protein in our diet, our hair health can’t help but suffer. Making sure your getting enough protein in your diet as you age is so important. My morning vegan protein shake has been a staple breakfast for me since I gave up gluten and eggs 12 years ago.  I also mix this powder into my shake to add my daily greens.

 

Hair Products

I can’t stress enough how important it is to be using quality hair products to obtain thick and healthy hair.

Olaplex 3, 4 & 5

If you haven’t heard of the brand, Olaplex by now, I’m about to change your hair game! Olaplex #3 is a cream the rebuilds your hair from the inside, repairing the damage done from salon processing. I sleep in #3 about once a month. I also apply this lotion to my dry hair. Especially when I know, I’m going to be washing it soon. I’ll slather it on my ends and put it up in a bun. Leaving it in all day until I wash it.

#4 and #5 are the shampoo and conditioner. I love these products, and they make a massive difference in softness and my healthy hair. If you want to try out this brand, here is a travel kit with small sizes for $25.00.

Sisley

If you follow my blog, you know I’m all about Sisley products. This brand had been practicing clean herbal beauty for over 100 years. It’s a family-owned company that had some of the most expensive and most effective products on the market.

You can read my full review of Sisley hair products here. The two products that make the most significant difference in my hair are the shampoo and hair oil. Both are pricey, but the shampoo is very concentrated, so a little goes a long way, and the oil has such a large amount in the bottle that it will last for years. I’ve never used anything like this shampoo. My hair literally felt light as air but with a bouncy volume that started at the roots. My hair color is also less brassy when I use this. The hair oil has so many fabulous oils to nourish your hair! I apply two pumps to wet hair, starting at the roots, and when I finish styling it, I use two pumps again. I, however, have incredibly thick hair. Start with one drop and see how that works first.

If this price point is more that you want to spend on haircare, I highly recommend the Prose system. You will again take a quiz online and receive a customized hair care system. They take into account, age, environment, hair-loss, it’s a very detailed questionnaire to get you the best herbal based hair system.

DryBar

I’ve used DryBar products for years, and I love getting blowouts at the salons! Some of my favorite products are The Chaser, for adding shine and separation after I style my hair and  Sparkling Soda. This curling rod is the only hot tool I use.

I recently started using the Blonde Ale line and love what it does for my bleached ends. Especially now, with hair appointments being so far between. This purple shampoo and conditioner are must-haves if you have blonde hair. The mask and powder have even more of an impact on brightening up blonde hair and getting rid of brassiness.

I alternated between these quality products depending on what my hair needs at the time.


What are your go-to hair products do you love for thick and healthy hair? I’d love to hear in the comments!

5 Easy Ways To Get Your Skin Glowing

5 Easy Ways To Get Your Skin Glowing 1852 1080 Tammy Caciola

Tips for glowing skin

tips for glowing skinTips For Glowing Skin

Let’s “face” it. We’ve all grown a little weary of being in quarantine for the last few months. Our beauty routines have taken a hit, to say the least! We’ve become lax with our skincare regimens without help from our derms and salons to keep us looking good. With so much time indoors and little face to face interaction, we haven’t thought that much about it. Spending weeks inside can make the skin look dull, feel dry, and more acne-prone. Keep scrolling to see five tips for glowing skin! Headed into the summer months, it’s time to up your skincare game and get that glow back!


Drink more water.

I’m usually much better about this when life has me running around outside the home. However, now that I’m at home, I forget to drink the water I need to keep my skin hydrated! Water is so essential for your health! From your joints to your digestion. Hydration shouldn’t be ignored. I recently added this water bottle to my daily routine. I love having a goal of how much to during, and it comes with a straw! Pick your favorite color with lots to choose from.


Exfoliate

If you’re not using Exfoliating pads, now is an excellent time to start. When you exfoliate the outer layer of your skin, it makes a huge difference for a smoother and brighter complexion.  For the face, I love the Tula Exfoliate Pads! I’ve used them for years and get the most compliments on my skin after I use them. I can’t recommend them enough!

For your body, I hands down love Indi Lee coconut citrus body scrub. This scrub is the original clean beauty product Indie started her line with, making it in her kitchen. It’s not like any other body scrub out there. There is not an oily base, so it’s shower friendly. It always leaves my skin super smooth and hydrated! I also linked one for the guys, not leaving them out!


Overnight Masks

A sleeping mask can give you ultra-moisturized skin! Waking up with plump, youthful skin is the perfect way to start any day! An overnight mask will provide you with long-lasting moisture and rejuvenate your skin to a more natural glow you’re bound to love.

My go-to for a nighttime mask is the Sisley Rose Mask. I wake up with plump, moisturized skin that is glowing! It a luxe cream that is worth it!

 

Whenever I fly, I put a small amount into a travel container to apply in the air. I land with my skin looking better than when I left! I’ve also used the FRESH mask that is at a lower price point.


Oils and Serums

When you use oils or serums on your exfoliated, hydrated skin, you can’t help but glow! They are basically liquid therapy full of antioxidants and vitamins for your skin.  I tend to stick with high-quality oils for the best results. They come at a higher price point, but they also last about a year for me.

Oils and serums are my favorite skincare products. If I could only have one skincare item, it would be a powerful serum! My favorites are linked below. Erno Lazlo Timeless serum will glide on your skin for serious skin-smoothing results.  Indie Lee had amazing serums and oils I love!


Face Mists

After following these tips for glowing skin, you’re going to want to show it off and not cover it with makeup. I’m a huge face mist fan! I have several and always have one with me. Hydrating mists are lifesavers on hot summer days! Appling them as the last step to your routine will seal in the moisture.  If you do apply makeup, a quick mist is a perfect way to finish off.

It’s got to smell fabulous and be a bit of aromatherapy for me to love it. Favorites are below!

Keeping up with skincare trends can be hard to do! It seems like there is a new product line coming out every day. I tend to stick with the tried and true brands that I know work for my skin. Being a blogger, I get offered alot of beauty products to try, most of which I say no to. I do not have sensitive skin, but continually changing skin products tends to make me breakout.

However, when Lexli Advance Aloe Skincare approached me, I was intrigued. Lexli skincare has aloe-based products instead of water-based. Being that I grew up on the west coast, I’m very familiar with the healing properties of aloe for minor cuts and burns. Growing up, I would go outside and cut a small piece off of an aloe plant in the yard and squeeze the clear serum inside the plant and apply it to my wound.

Below are some are the healing properties of aloe.

  • Antioxidant and antibacterial properties
  • Accelerates the healing of burns
  • Reduces dental plaque.
  • Helps treat canker sores.
  • Reduces constipation.
  • May improve skin and prevent wrinkles.
  • Lowers blood sugar levels

Revital-Eyes eye cream

There are two standout products I’ve tried from this line. The first is Lexli Revital-Eyes Rejuvenating & Firming Eye Cream. I’ve been using this hydrating eye-cream daily for the past 30 days. The thin skin around my eye is more hydrated and plumped.  This aloe vera eye-cream is silky smooth and absorbs instantly, encouraging skin’s natural collagen production. I love how it also smooths wrinkles. I apply this cream under and over make-up. It’s wonderful to use to the eye throughout the day.

AloeGlyC

The second product I was really impressed with is the AloeGlyC. This is a cream glycolic acid exfoliator, unlike any other.  It has a base of organic, pharmaceutical-grade aloe vera, and glycolic acid. After I used this product once my skin was glowing and the texture was smoother! With results like unclogging and shrinking pores, I’m hooked!

AloeGlyC is packed with antioxidants, including Vitamin C beads, as well as Vitamins A, D, E, and Green Tea, that work to neutralize free radical damage, contributing to healthier- and younger-looking skin.

To apply AloeGlyC, place a nickel-size amount of product in the palm of your hand. Use gentle upward and outward strokes, smooth exfoliator onto face and neck. Staying away from the eyes. DO NOT WASH OFF. Allow AloeGlyC to sit on the skin for 10 to 15 minutes before applying the moisturizer of your choice.

AloeGlyC is included in the 2-week sample kit. The perfect way to see if this aloe skincare is for you!

Let me know your thoughts if you try it!

Hair Ritual by Sisley-Paris

sisley-Paris Haircare

Haircare products are something I don’t mess around with, I have my favorites and stick with them. I only want to use products that are going to make my hair have a good day. I want my hair to be smooth without being weighed down, have a bouncy silky texture and shine.

However, when the iconic french brand Sisley-Paris sent me some of their luxurious Hair Rituel products, I was very excited! I’m already a huge fan of their plant-based skin-care line! Sidenote: This neck cream is a gamechanger!

Luxurious Hair Care

Precious Haircare Oil

The first product I used was the antioxidant-rich Precious Haircare Oil. This product is a standout for me, and I will have it in my haircare routine forever! The oil can be patted on dry or damp hair. I put one-two drops on my damp hair and scalp, style it then as a final step, work 1-2 drops into my dry hair. It leaves my hair with serious shine, nutrition, and never weighs is down. It helps give me a piecey, lived-in look I love! My hairdresser even asked me what I changed because my hair was looking so healthy!

I can’t say enough about this product. This lightweight oil delivers significant results with hydration, shine, and nutrition for the hair and scalp! It absorbs instantly, and it is suitable for every hair type. The oil is packaged in a 3.3 oz bottle, which is a significant amount! When you consider this size and how long it will last, it is less per ounce than the brand I was previously using.

Volumizing Spray

I tried this product next. The volumizing spray works well for giving me volume with texture. I spray it on my roots when my hair is damp then brush it through before I blow dry. It definitely did its job, but I wasn’t blown away by anything in particular.

Color Perfecting Shampoo

I was super impressed with this shampoo! I fell in love with how it left my hair feeling and looking. The first time I used it, I washed my hair and scalp three times, now two is sufficient. Keep in mind I only wash my hair every 5-6 days, so its plenty dirty and full of products.  After using it one time, my hair had never felt so bouncy and light! It feels somehow different at the root, and it seems to give it needed lift. This product brightens my highlights and smoothes my hair without making it feel heavy, leaving it incredibly soft. I think it is 100% worth the high price tag and will repurchase this shampoo when I run out.

Although this high-performance haircare line has a healthy price tag, it has been a gamechanger for my hair! If you’re looking for top-of-the-line ingredients, zero artificial scents, essential-oil laden, and sulfate-free products for your hair, I highly suggest trying this line. If your new to the line, start with the discovery set. You won’t be disappointed.

There are other products in this luxe haircare system that, if I try, I will keep you updated!
