Favorite L’ange Products

Last summer I received an email from a company I had never heard of. L’ange. They wanted to send me some products, and if I liked them, do a Facebook Live on how I liked to use them. I was skeptical because I have crazy, curly unruly hair. Most products I have bought over the years are still sitting in my bathroom, 90 percent full.

Flash forward to today… I have repurchased multiple products from L’ange. That is unheard of for me.

The best part about this company is you can log on to Facebook at any time and watch someone doing their hair. And no, it’s not a professional hairstylist, it’s just an average person, like you or me.

They carry everything hair-related you could ever need: hot tools, shampoo, conditioner, styling products, and their newest item, hair extensions. Hands down, my favorite item is the Satin Nectar Nourishing Gloss. It takes my hair from crazy and frizzy to smooth and shiny. Their curling wands are also amazing. When I find the time in between naps and playtime to curl my hair, I know it’s worth it because it will last for days.

A little tip when purchasing a wand, there are two types: titanium is made for hard-to-curl hair and ceramic is for hair that holds curl easily. The Le Reve straightener is great for all you postpartum mamas, like me, that have a lot of regrowth around your face because the straightener is compact enough that it can really get the smaller pieces.

Happy shopping, Mamas!

Stranded on a Deserted Island- 5 Beauty must haves

The first thing I do once Hayden goes down for a nap is scroll through my Instagram stories. One recently caught my eye: @courtney_shields inspired me to really think about what my favorite must-have-or-I’ll-die items are. She posed the question: “If you could only bring 5 makeup items to a desert island, what would you bring?” She added that a razor and deodorant were already included, and then–plot twist–you would be with a guy or girl you like. 

 First thing that came to mind was my Dior Mascara. Hands down, the best mascara I have ever tried. 

 I am not sure if hair products were included in this, but what I know is my hair has a mind of its own. With no blowdryer, I would have to have an oil of some kind so I wouldn’t scare my crush onto the next island.

 Now the true dilemma: a BB cream or the cult favorite,                                        

Hula Bronzer? I think being on an island I would already be tan so I’m going to go with my ride-or-die BareMinerals Complexion Rescue tinted moisturizer. It also has SPF in it, so now I am set with that too. 

 I am going to assume my lips would be dry, and based on the fact I’m obsessed with lip gloss, I would have to bring one with me. (I’m also going to assume that this island has no mirror; I don’t know about you, but I need one to do my brows so a brow gel is out.) 

And finally, a little bit of highlighting cream can be used for the apples of my cheeks, maybe as some eyeshadow, and for my shoulders, and duh, to highlight my décolletage.

 I am going to leave the actual survival stuff up to my crush because I will be too busy putting on makeup.

Current Postpartum Hair Products

I don’t know about you but I was fat, bloated, exhausted and in pain during my pregnancy but my hair was AMAZING. Thick and shiny and then it happened. A couple weeks ago I was in the shower and low and behold tons of it was in my hand. Not thinking too much into it until it happened the next day and the day after that. Postpartum hair loss is real ladies!! I have a few bald spots that I am told will come back after awhile.

 

So here are a few of my current favorites that I think are helping. We will regrow! Ps the L’Oreal Root Coverup works wonders for bald patches. The Olaplex is my favorite thing on this list. I just put it on like a mask before the shower. If your a new mom I don’t even have to talk about dry shampoo. This one is amazing and leaves you smelling amazing.
