My Regimens

People have been asking about my beauty regimen for a while on formspring.  And I’m always like, suuuuuure thing, I’ll get you that post!  But I never do.   Mostly because I’m flabbergasted that someone wants to know what shampoo I buy or make up I wear.  I think, I must do a pretty good job of spinning, because I look kinda plain most of the time.  These questions always seem to come along when I’m in yoga pants, make-up free,  and a pony tail too.   Anyway,  I’m no Lauren Conrad!  But a few of y’all wanted to  know… and I give the people what they want … in time.   

This is a picture of me from last Saturday.  I was thinking, I did my hair AND my make up.  Must document.  

make up:
naked 2 eye make up // bare minerals foundation, well rested (undereye) // blush // mascara // eyeliner
I use my mother’s all organic products.  Which have gone through a
big rebrand and should relaunch in November.  You can email her at for info/pricing.  I use them with my pink clarisonic mia.    I also use the sulfur ddf mask once a week.

There is just no substitute for hot rollers.  I’ve had these since college, and it’s pretty much how I did my hair every single day back then.  It gives it just enough bounce.  I stopped for a while when I got my hot tool, but for a good everyday look I still prefer the hot rollers.  Call me old fashioned.  I do own a straightener, but figure it is not worth mentioning since I maybe use it once a year.  I also blow dry my hair with a no name blow dryer who has been quite faithful throughout the years, that golly I should give him a name.  It should be said that I don’t do my hair 7 days a week, we’re looking at around 3.  On the other days I generally let my hair air dry and comb it, put it in a braid or up once dry.  I shower daily because I don’t have the luxury of hair that is cute 24 hours after I do it.  But if I do find myself in a pinch I use Psst dry shampoo and recurl with the hot tools.

If you have questions, I’ll answer them in the comments, or you can use formspring too, and use that if you’d like to request a certain post.   Happy Friday!

    I would love to see how you use the hot curlers. I've never actually used hot curlers, but heard they work wonders. I typically curl my hair daily which is pain, but I too cannot go a few days without washing my hair. It's an oily mess.

    sounds like we have a pretty similar hair routine! I MUST wash it every day, but I usually air dry on my way to work. By the time I get there, it's usually dry enough to pull into a bun, braid, or just hang loose if I'm feeling more casual. then, if I have plans after work, I go home, spritz the roots with dry shampoo and curl with an iron. I'm all about the big loose curls like you have in your weekend photo! I've never had much luck with hot rollers though. Would love a tutorial on how to use them!!

    so i'm totally trying to think of you in my beauty purchases, which is really painful here with the euro exchange and prices of everything. It's easy to walk into a chino (spains version of a corner drug store) and buy lotions and makeup but i'm really trying to find some good stuff without all the yucky stuff..

    Thanks for posting this! I'm always intrigued by other people's regimines.

    I've used Neutrogena's organic line and it just doesn't do the job that Clinique's products and RoC's nightcream does for me.

    Also I've noticed you have finer hair, as do I. Do you use a monthly system for strength? Mine breaks easily but I'm trying to grow it out.

    Anyone's thoughts on making fine hair stronger, welcome!
