Although I am not heading Back To School (although getting an MBA has definitely been on my mind lately…but that is for another time haha) one thing I do love to do is to switch over my beauty products from summer to fall so I suppose I am getting my Back To School beauty buys to start the year (and fall) off right! I want that summer glow and smooth skin to last me well into the winner and with these products, it is sure to do so!
To start…smooth skin. With Schick Disposable Razors from Walmart, that great summer time skin can last year round. I always was a fan of swapping out my razors often. Nothing feels better on your skin than a new, fresh razor to get that close, clean shave without any bumps, marks or bruising (which was often a problem for me in the past — but not anymore).
I love how these disposable razors have that extra added hydration my skin needs and are ideal for sensitive skin like mine.
My other fav beauty products consist of my all time favorite, BB Cream from La Roche-Posay (this stuff is literally the best thing I have ever come across) it honestly hides any and every little blemish and red mark, leaving my skin looking flawless all day long.
In honor of Back To School prepping, Walmart has an exclusive offer for you on Schick razors for guys or gals — Buy One Pack, Get One Free! (you know how much I love a great deal + coupons) Check it out HERE!
P.S. Schick is running a contest now where you can Enter To Win $10,000 towards you college tuition! Umm WOW! Enter (if I was in school I sure would!) 🙂
Isn’t the best feeling in the world when you are having a good hair day…you know, when your hair has the perfect amount of volume, bounce + shine and is actually able to last the whole day? Yea…well thanks to Amika hair care and pro tools…that day is everyday! I am always game for trying new products, especially if they promise me fab hair in under an hour that actually lasts all day (yup then you have me sold).

Amika sent me some awesome products that I am for sure in love with (heck the Perk Up dry shampoo they sent me I already ran out of because I am that obsessed with it :p). They actually sent me the perfect after product to dry shampoo…Dry Conditioner! This is the first time I ever heard of it but I totally love it and it smells delicious (is sniffing my hair periodically throughout the day awkward? haha) These products are perfect for me because I try not to wash my hair everyday A) So it prevents my hair from getting to flat + B) Because it’s actually not good to wash your hair everyday (I learned this back when I was a receptionist at a hair salon on Long Island during my college years).
When I use dry shampoo + dry conditioner a day after washing my hair, it gives my hair a little texture, making it ideal for when I want to curl my hair…which brings me to the next amazing Amika product I tested out, the Amika Switch Kit which comes with this awesome interchangeable curling wand that you can swap out the heads for a curling iron whenever you feel like…all the parts match with the swivel base and it is super easy to put together + take apart.
It actually took me a while (and my roommate’s help) to teach me how to use a curling wand haha I have always been traditionally a curling iron kind of gal for fear of burning my fingers, but it is actually pretty easy to do and quick once you get the hang of it. So it’s awesome that whichever way you are most comfortable, Amika provides an option most suiting for you and your hair!So I had to share this little outtake from this shoot…Ali told me to make a funny face, well here it is haha #LongHairDontCare duh 😉
Now after the curling process comes what you need to finish off the look and have your hairstyle hold all day…Amika’s Touchable Hairspray! It has great hold without that ‘crunchy,stiff‘ feeling some hair sprays give you.
