The fall season has arrived! As the autumn season moves in, temperatures are moving into moderate territory. This means it is a great time to mix up my skin routine!

If you are like me, you spent a lot of time outside this summer. After all, it was one of the few places we could go during lockdown. This left my skin a little blotchy and dry. Therefore, the fall season is all about repair! This dark spot remover by ReVive is ideal for lightening dark spots left by the sun. It really brightens my skin. I use the Elemis Moisturizer in the morning, and the ReVive dark spot corrector at night as my moisturizer. It works really well!

This ReVive neck cream is a favorite of mine. I have been purchasing it since I was 28, and now I am well into my 40’s. It has spf protection, and keeps my neck firm. I love it!

In the fall season, I love gourmand and warm scents. This honey vanilla collection from Colleen Rothschild is perfect for autumn. It’s warm, and the perfect amount of silky sweetness. Plus, it does a great job of cleaning, and smoothing, my skin.

I have purchased the body butter in the past. I definitely go through this jar! One lasts me about six months. It smells so good, plus it corrects dry skin; leaving it smooth. It’s a must-have not only for fall, it’s a must-have all year long! Love it!

OK raise your hand if you hair is terrible right now! I spent the summer in the sun, and in the pool. Not only that, I have not had my highlights touched up since the first week of March! Our salons just reopened, so I need to run down there and get some color repair done. Aside from that, my hair has split ends, chlorine damage, and sun damage. Thank goodness for this hair care collection from Colleen Rothschild! I am using this fabulous hair mask every Sunday, and it is really helping my dry hair. I also love this hair serum, which is great to put on after I dry my hair. It smooths down my hair leaving it soft and controlled. Love that! I’m not sure how I survived before owning it!

The fall season is all about repairing the damage to our skin and our hair from all the fun we had in the sun over the summer! Everything I am showing in this post will help repair and correct summer damage. I love these products!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pureology hair care review

pureology professional hair care review

OK, raise your hand if your hair is crazy-dry this year! My hand is waaaaaay up! If you are like me this year, you are spending the majority of your time outside. Since pretty much everything indoors is closed, with the exception of supermarkets and some stores, we have all been outside in the sun, at the pool, and at the beach. This has wreaked havoc on my hair; not to mention I have not been able to get my hair trimmed since March due to all of our salons being shut down. My hair is so dry, and in need of a haircut. Thankfully the Pureology products are saving me!

I was thrilled when Pureology sent me a PR package filled with their hair care products. I quickly found the purple bottle, the Hydrate collection, was the ideal line for my dry hair. I have been outside a lot, plus swimming in the pool more than usual. This has caused my untrimmed ends to become very dry, and close to getting brittle. I am loving the Pureology Hydrate collection because it has restored hydration to my ends, and my hair in general. While it cannot trim my hair for me, it does keep it healthy. Which is what we all need right now anyway!

I love that Pureology was created right here in California. Yay local!! In addition to being local, Pureology offers sulfate-free and vegan products which are professional quality. Salons always have the best products, and even though we cannot go to them right now, it is nice to be able to get that professional, salon quality hair care right at home. Love this!

Pureology is not only sulfate-free, and vegan, their products are made without parabens and mineral oil. This helps keep their products safer for the environment and for us, the users. Love! Plus, yes there is more, the packaging is made from 95% post consumer recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable. Love that!

OK, let me swing back around to how it hydrates my hair. Once a week I love to use the Pureology Hydrate Soft treatment. I am using this treatment after I shampoo and conditioner my hair. It really makes my hair healthy and hydrated by using key ingredients such as shea butter and sweet almond oil. It smells so good! I am addicted to this product!

On days when I don’t wash my hair, I can easily refresh it with the Pureology Refresh & Go dry shampoo. This dry shampoo works really well and doesn’t leave any white residue. It’s really awesome!

If you are not looking for hydration like me, Pureology also has a fabulous collection of strengthening and volume hair care products. I will include them in the shopping widget below. You can click on each one for more information.

New haircare for winter 2020

best haircare products 2020

New in my hair-care arsenal for 202 from left: Dyson supersonic hair dryer / Garnier color reviver in warm brown c/o Garnier / Garnier dry shampoo in Melon-tini c/o Garnier / Garneir dry shampoo in Coco Colada c/o Garnier /

OK, if you have been following along, you may have noticed I have had my eyes on this hairdryer by Dyson for quite some time. Apparently my mom took notice from reading my blog, and guess what I got for Christmas! Yay!! She hooked me up with the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer of my dreams; and yes, it is the hairdryer we all had no idea we needed.

In addition to my new hair dryer thanks to Mom, Garnier sent me a fabulous PR package for the holiday season with new hair-care, and beauty products, from their collection.  I always love testing out new products from Garnier since they tend to be products I end up falling in love with. This hair mask, and these two dry shampoo’s, are my new hair-care go-to’s in 2020. Since I am coloring my hair to cover up my salt-and-pepper grey, a color revivier mask is exactly what my hair needs a few weeks after my salon appointment; especially if I am outdoors a lot. It’s a game changer in keeping my color looking fresh!

Dry shampoos have always looked like a good idea in theory, but I haven’t really found one I felt I could attach my recommendation to. This one from Garnier has just captured my eye, and my recommend! The Melon-tini and Coco Colada are fabulous scents, and they will be ideal as the weather starts to warm up next month. Love this!

Best Dry Shampoo by Garnier

Garinier’s dry shampoo is available in a variety of scents. The Melon-tini, and the Coco Colada, are definitely my favorites. I love a warm weather scent on a cool day since it evokes a sunshine vibe. I also happen to love the scent of coconut and of melon, during warm weather, so these will both be perfect all year long. Love!

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer review

Best Hair Dryer on the market

dyson hairdryer review

I have wanted the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer for years!!! The thing that kept me from buying it myself was the price. I really could not understand how a hair dryer could be that expensive, I mean, I could get a nice one for $50 at CVS, so why spend almost $400 on one??? I just didn’t get it, and no-one could possibly understand why it is worth the money until actually trying it.

When you blow dry your hair, how many times have you felt like it was dried out, or taking a really long time to dry and style? With the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, I can dry my hair in under five minutes, and it doesn’t feel like I used a hair-dryer, it feels like I air dried my hair. My hair feels healthier, and it is shinier, just from using this hair dryer; how crazy is that?! Plus, I am saving a ton of time in the morning since it dries my hair so quickly. Thanks mom!!!

If you have been eyeing this hair dryer, and have been hesitant to buy it due to the price, let me tell you, it’s worth every penny. I’m in love!
