July was a whirlwind of a month. My boyfriend and I spent the first 11 days traveling around Europe and then the second half of the month was mostly spent playing catchup. Since I was mostly on the road, I didn’t anticipate to fall in love with any products, but I fell hard for a few.
The Skin Authority Go Gorgeous kit was my skin-care life blood during my trip. Everything was perfectly sized for dealing with airport security and it contained all my staple products. It’s going with me on every trip from now on!
During our last stop – Amsterdam – I stumbled upon Skins Cosmetics, which is a gorgeous beauty and skin care store. While there, I treated myself to a perfume purchase to help me remember the trip – Byredo in Gypsy Water. I’ve been back for a month now and I’ve worn this scent every day since. Not only do I LOVE this scent, but I’ve received so many compliments on it. Always a plus.
And last but not least, I have fallen seriously IN. LOVE. with Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day line. I was sent samples of all the goodies and wasn’t expecting much, but I was seriously proven wrong. I fell so in love that I’ve already repurchased the shampoo and conditioner after running out of my smaller sample sized and told everyone who would listen to scoop up these products for themselves ASAP.
This past Sunday I was invited to a VIB Rouge “Beauty Before Brunch” party. What does that mean? People who spend too much money at Sephora on a yearly basis are invited to come spend even more money all at one time. Needless to say, I RSVPed as fast as my little fingers would let me and planned my mini Sephora Haul.
Having just returned for a long and relatively expensive vacation, I told myself I would save money by just picking up the “necessities.” But need is relative, and I ended up with three hair products I was excited to get my hands on. I snatched up the Living Proof PHD shampoo and conditioner, which I have been LOVING (more on that later), and the Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow it cream I had read about on Gouldylox. I haven’t tried the B&B cream yet, but I’m going to this weekend and I can’t wait!
In addition to the products that I paid for, each event-goer was gifted an adorable makeup bag filled with samples from all sorts of brands ranging from KORRES to benefit to Chloe. Not a bad perk!
This unbearable heat wave on the East Coast has meant a full week of crazy, unmanageable hair for many women. I’ve had an updo every single day, and I miss seeing my mane down. Can you imagine wearing your hair down in 90 plus degrees without any frizz at all for two days? And getting it for free?
ULTA and Living Proof (the brand featuring Jennifer Aniston in its ads) have teamed up to offer a sweet, frizz-free blowout without opening your pocketbook that is too good to pass up. I promise it’s real — you’re not having a heat hallucination.
All you have to do is call any ULTA Beauty location nationwide, and make a 30-minute free appointment between these dates and times:
Friday, July 19, from 6:00pm-8:00pm
Friday, July 26, from 6:00pm-8:00pm
During your free half-hour appointment, you’ll enjoy a complementary shampoo, condition and hair styling with a blow dryer and round or paddle brush for a polished frizz-free look using Living Proof frizz products. And according to the brand, you can experience what it means to stay frizz-free for 48 hours or more.
The best part is not only do you get a free blow-out, but you won’t walk away empty handed if you decide to make a purchase. At the end of your appointment, you’ll go home with a complimentary deluxe 1 oz. frizz Nourishing Styling Cream with any Living Proof purchase of $20 or more.
