Whoever said fighting isn’t pretty never heard of the ‘Fighting Pretty‘ organization. Fighting Pretty is an organization that’s main focus is to help girls, young ladies + women of all ages battling cancer to feel beautiful + pretty no matter what the daily struggle is. There is nothing I love more than when a company teams up with a charitable organization to do good.
GlossyBox is already one of the leaders in making gals everywhere feel and look great with new beauty + skincare products delivered in the form of a monthly subscription. They teamed up with the Fighting Pretty organization to give ladies the beauty buys they want with all of the proceeds from purchase of the box going to women battling cancer. Beauty for a cause is something I can always get behind.
Nothing makes me happier than testing out new hair and skin products by having my very own ‘spa day’. Since moving to LA from NY the change in climate has caused me to A) Break out yet get dry skin at the same time and B) Moisturize my hair and give it a little LA style refresh! Well luckily Dove came to my rescue with the best budget friendly hair and skin care options that you can find at your local drug store!
Dove sent me tons of awesome goodies that my roommate / photographer Ali and I had plenty of fun testing out :p Maybe a little too much fun…oops!
While I have pretty straight hair, the Quench Absolute collection was A) Perfect to add moisture and life back into my hair + B) Was perfect for Ali to use to style her hair (she has coarse curly hair so these products were a total life saver for her)! The shampoo, conditioner and styling products all smell delicious…so much so that I kept wanting to add more to my hair because although I achieved the style I was going for, I couldn’t stop sniffing it haha Don’t you love when drug store beauty buys smell way better than the super expensive products? #BestMomentEver
The Restoration Mask has been an absolute life saver for me. I love how smooth and shiny my hair looks after using it and it can be used as often as you want without overdoing your hair. The same goes for the Supreme Creme Serum, it can be applied to wet or dry hair and includes Glycerin to nourish the hair.
My skin has gone totally off track since moving. Some days it is clear and smooth and other days I am breaking out everywhere…so I tend to over dry my skin with toners + clarifying products to clear up the acne and in the interim I am leaving my skin craving moisture and hydration. The Dove Summer Care series provides a light and fresh feeling without making my skin oily while still providing the moisture my skin needs! It’s a win/win…and oh yeah…it smells amazing as well duh!
And then the last Dove product in my skin care arsenal? Dove Advanced Care deodorant! I actually keep it in my bag so I have it everywhere I go so I always smell fresh and feel clean. It offers 48 hour protection and even after a busy work day, still smells fantastic.
Happy Tuesday Loves! Sometimes the ‘simplest’ answer is often the correct one…while this may not have been true when it came to the movie ‘Gone Girl’ (which I saw over the rainy weekend and instantly became entranced by)…one answer that is by far simple? The best skin care for your buck…Simple Skin Care available at your local drug store, super market or Target 😉 The lovely team over at ‘Simple’ sent me some goodies to help my skin with the weather changes. I have always had oily skin and am constantly washing, cleansing and exfoliating to have smooth skin like a baby’s bottom.

Their entire line is affordable, long lasting and has no harsh chemicals, dyes or perfumes…they keep it simple…everything my skin craves. Time to break down the products!
