My picks for great lips! Best lip scrubs & lip prep products for mature lips

I notice that as I age, there are ‘changes’ in my skin.  Gravity starts to take its tool, my skin is thinner in some places than others and my lips….oh my lips.  My top lip is noticeably disappearing (sadness) and my lips are DRY DRY DRY.  I love a matte lipstick but there is no way that I could wear one without getting my lips ready.  Please see below for my product picks to prep your lips for lipstick.  One of these products is actually a 2 in 1-I call it ‘the best of both worlds.’

BIG sea salt shampoo from LUSH

My hair is fine in texture.   I have a lot of hair-but it’s flat.  I can get it big and voluminous with a lot of different products and some styling tools.  I added this shampoo to my repetoire as one more step towards ‘going BIG’

From the website:

Body-building shampoo for BIG hair and loads of shine

Over half the base of Big shampoo is made with sea salt, giving massive volume to hair in need of a boost. Sea salt is also full of minerals and de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh, squeaky clean feeling. We balance the sea salt with seaweed infusion and extra virgin coconut oil for soft, nourished locks. Finally, fresh citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine.

My thoughts:

This is a shampoo you have to get used to.  It is granular and that can feel a bit ummmm ‘different’  than a standard shampoo. I scoop it out with my hands and massage it into my scalp.  Once you get it into your hair, it will lather (not a ton but it will). I usually work it in from root to about halfway down my head, and then let the shampoo trickle down to the ends.  I follow that up with veganese conditioner (another post coming on that eventually) which is light but provides enough moisture that my hair isn’t static.  Then it’s off to the races with a volumizing mousse or a texture spray (let me know if you are interested in seeing/reading about what hair products I use!).

I like this shampoo-it’s different and leaves my hair feeling clean and refreshed.  It’s more than I would like to pay for it, but the results are good so I’ll pay it once in awhile.  If you’re craving volume, it’s best to start with a clean scalp and hair-try this one out!

Weekend skincare!

I like to slow things down (a tad) and give myself a ‘break’ on the weekends. This includes my face.  I don’t consider myself an ‘abuser’ of my face but since I do love makeup, the weekends are a time to either use less or not wear it at all (if I can bear it).  I thought I would give you a peek into what I use to clean my face  on the weekends.
