Hi.

Welcome to The Natural Brunette. I document my latest finds in on-trend fashion on a budget.

My Refreshing Beauty Picks

My Refreshing Beauty Picks

It’s easy to get caught up in your everyday, tedious routine. Trust me, I know first hand. But when my regime starts to feel dull and mundane, I turn to these products to help me feel refreshed.

Taking time to pamper yourself can really make a difference and give you that little “pick me up” needed to get you back to feeling like yourself again!  I’ve listed all the products that I rely on to freshen up my look (and overall state of mind) direct links and descriptions to products can be found below!

Almond Milk & Honey Body Lotion

I’ve bought and re-bought this lotion a couple times now (they are now having a buy 1 get 1 on us deal for this), it’s just so addicting and I keep going back to it! The lotion is thick but its also nice and smooth so it’s easy to apply. I usually apply this lotion before bed or right after I get out of the shower. It does a great job at keeping my skin moisturized and smelling fresh and oh yeah, since I brought up the sent, let me tell you...the almond milk and honey fragrance really is as AMAZING as it sounds.

Dr. Botanicals Rose Facial Oil

This product is a newbie for me but I can already tell it’s going to be a keeper. I’m usually pretty picky when it comes to facial oil, my longtime favorite being the Everything Oil by Honest Beauty. However, I decided to give this one a try when it came in one of my latest Glossy Box subscriptions. What I really like about this oil is that It’s really lightweight and you only have to apply a few drops in order to cover your entire face. Another great thing about it is that it instantly makes your skin feel smooth after applying and ironically leaves little to no traces of oil on your face. This oil also has a really amazing sent to it, making me want to use it ALL THE TIME. (can you tell I like things that smell good).

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

I’ve mentioned this product before and it still remains as one of my MUST HAVES. This lip mask has done wonders to my lips during this dry, winter season. I’ve always had a hard time keeping my lips moisturized enough so that they wouldn’t crack this time of year and this lip mask completely prevented it from happening! I apply it religiously every morning and night, plus I also carry it around in my bag just in case. And this is another product where a little goes a long way, so one tube will last you awhile. They also sell tinted shades of this, my favorite is this one.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray

Another recent purchase of mine and I’m loving it! I will admit that at first I had no idea really what this product was for, but once I started using it in my beauty routine – I completely came to love it! I like to use this spray at least once a day (usually at night after cleansing or before I put on my makeup). But what I’ve also found it to be really useful for is spraying it on right before I workout. I usually take all my makeup off with a makeup wipe when I’m at the gym which tends to leave me skin slightly irritated, one spry of this and my skin looks and feels rejuvenated. Perfect for whenever you feel that you skin is in need of a quick boost!

DryBar Dry Shampoo

If dry shampoo has become your saving grace in life, then please stand up (standing, of course). It couldn’t be more true, as a busy, brunette college girl I count on dry shampoo more than you could possibly imagine. Even though I regularly shampoo and condition my hair, 2nd day hair for me has always been a struggle. My hair will appear to look greasy not even twenty-four hours after washing (ugh, talk about wanting to rip your hair out). But thanks to dry shampoo, I can keep my hair looking fresh well into the 2nd day. This dry shampoo from DryBar is my favorite right now because it doesn’t flatten my hair or leave white residue and it smells SO good. I highly recommend.

Patchology Lip Renewal

To be honest, these did sit in my cart for awhile before I purchased. But now that I have tried them, I don’t regret buying one bit! They really help to moisturize and soothe your lips.  I recommend using them daily, for me, I usually use them at night and its where I see the best results.

It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream

Can’t say enough good things about this super cream! It is without a doubt my favorite moisturizer that I have come across. My face and neck have never been dry because of it and it instantly makes my skin baby smooth. If your only goanna get one thing from this whole list, let it be this! Your wont regret it, I promise.

Thank you for reading and if you have any questions about anything, then feel free to reach out to me by commenting below. Also I would love to know if you guys would like to see a quick tutorial of how I use any of these products, let me know with a comment!
