Must Have Beauty Products from @ConairBeauty #GoConair #sponsored

Of the many News Year’s resolutions people make are to get in to shape and look their best. How are you all doing now that is is March? I am starting back up at the gym and trying to eat healthy. Of course diet and exercise are on the top list but there are a few must have items that can help you look your best. Conair was nice enough to send me a few products to test out and they did not disappoint. You may have some Conair products right in your bathroom. They have a great line of personal care products including grooming, health and wellness appliances and hair products. Over the years I have had a number of great hair dryers from Conair.  They make great products for teens and adults and have for decades. Here are some of my favorites:

 Two-sided lighted make-up mirror – this staple has been a classic at Conair for over 20 years. It is a tri-panel mirror with 4 variable light settings – office, evening, home and day light and it closes up to store easily. My teen loves it. Not only for applying make-up and styling hair but to put in contacts. Also, no more guessing about how to add your foundation in the perfect light. This makes a very nice gift for mom on Mother’s Day (hint, hint)

 Weight Watchers Scale – This body analysis glass scale has it all and it is the one to get you on track to be fit. It provides all the measurements for weight, body fat percentage, body water, bone mass and BMI. I like the lit background and you can see the digital results. If you really want a good scale in your house to keep you accountable this is the one to get. It’s super sleek and matches any décor.

 Infiniti PRO Diamond Brilliance Diamond-infused Ceramic Smoothing Hot brush – This styles hair without damage and saves you time. Super easy to use and less scary than a straight iron, this heated brush leaves your hair shiny, smooth and frizz free. A few tips if you do get this must have item – make sure your hair is dry and follow the heat settings for your hair – Low for thin, delicate hair, medium for average to thick hair and high for very thick or wavy hair. I also like the auto shut off! What makes this brush different is the diamond infused ceramic, paddle brush handle, ionic generator which helps to remove frizz and add shine and the nylon, silicone and ceramic-coated bristles make is very easy to maneuver and use. I like this very much to freshen up the hair before you go out and to use as a last step to get super smooth hair after your blow dry.

@SheaMoisture beauty products A review: #amillionwaystoshea

I like safe and effective beauty products and test out a lot of products. I love the Shea Moisture line and the company history is interesting, the products smell great and they work. Plus they are a natural, organic and a sustainably-produced line. Not all products can say that!  AND 10 % Of the Shea Moisture community commerce sales go to women-led business to support local communities where the ingredients come from.

Their web site says they strive to be sulfate free, paraben free and are tested on people not animals. The products in the Shea Moisture line use some pretty unique ingredients gathered from around the world and the background of this beauty line is interesting. Sofi Tucker started selling Shea Nuts at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone in 1912. By age 19, the widowed mother of four was selling Shea Butter, African Black Soap and her homemade hair and skin preparations all over the countryside. This legacy continues today. Here are a few of the items I tested out.

The SheaMoisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Collection smells so good! The shampoo and conditioner is enriched with Fruit Infused Coconut Water, Imbe Oil and Certified organic Shea Butter (that is ethically sourced from seven women’s co-ops in Northern Ghana) A nice weightless formulation that gives a bit of boost to my hair!

The 10-in-1 Renewal System is great for older hair (lol…ok moms in their 30’s and 40’s!) The antioxidant-rich collection helps to perfect and renew vibrancy to dull, lackluster hair. I use this as a special treat for my hair. It is sulfate-free has anti-aging benefits (no more frizz), color protection and your hair is super soft!

I love the bars of soap and body lotion too. The superfruit organic complex bar soap has Shea and Mango Butter and the superfruit complex of Raspberry Ketone, Goji, Acai and Guava extracts to nourish skin. I do notice when I use this that my skin is much smoother and it also lathers very well. Check out all their products as they have something for everyone. In fact they have a new web app #amillionwaystoshea in which you can upload a photo and answer some questions on which product is best for you!
