Macadamia Hair Care Oils - Deep Repair Oil Spray & Ultra Rich Oil Treatment

Macadamia Hair Care Oils - Deep Repair Oil Spray & Ultra Rich Oil Treatment


Macadamia Hair Care makes some fabulous styling oils for every hair type and I recently re-discovered a few of their oils to add to my haircare routine. The Deep Repair Oil Spray ($29.99; target.com) is a fairly new launch and a 100% vegan, very light weight oil mist that I like to spray on damp hair and style. It helps cut my blow drying time by half and leaves my hair feeling super smooth, frizz free and just overall healthy. It is also one of the few oils that did not leave my scalp oily or slick looking the next day. The Ultra Rich Repair Oil Treatment ($39.95; ulta.com) is a slightly thicker oil, a little bit goes a really long way with this one and I love how this can also be used as a finishing touch to tame fly aways on blow-dried hair. I do that all the time with thicker oils and like to use a teeny tiny bit on my ends as well. It also has a blend of Sweet Almond and Olive Oils that add a lot of shine. Unlike the spray version, this can weigh hair down, so using just the tiniest amount is the key and perfect if you have thick hair.

nooni Applebutter Lip Mask and Lip Oils

nooni Applebutter Lip Mask and Lip Oils




nooni is a brand new to me and I recently tried out a few of their lip products. The Applebutter Lip Mask ($18; amazon.com) is a fantastic mask/lip butter for dry lips. It's fairly thick, but moisturizes and softens instantly. I also love the mild fruity scent that isn't cloying. It's a great overnight mask or even one to use during the day. It also comes with a small spatula, which is hygienic for products that come packaged in small tins. The Lip Oils ($12; amazon.com) are glossy, sheer lip oils with a super nourishing formula. The Appleberry Lip Oil is tinted while Applemint and Applecoco are clear lip oils that also work nicely as sheer layering glosses. The texture isn’t too sticky and feels super comfortable on the lips. Appleberry also leaves a slight hint of a pink tint after the oil fades and the applicator is a plush, soft one. Overall, I’m very impressed with these lip products from nooni and would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a gluten-free, paraben-free and vegan line with a nice variety of lip products to choose from.

La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Mineral Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50

La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Mineral Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50

The La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Mineral Sunscreen Fluid ($33.50; laroche-posay.us) is a sheer, tinted sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF 50 that is water resistant, fragrance and paraben free. The packaging is sleek and the texture is fluid like, but easy to blend. It's a tinted fluid with light coverage that blends nicely without too much of a white cast even on my medium-dark skin tone. This works beautifully under makeup too and doesn’t feel heavy at all. My favorite sunscreens are those that I can wear under makeup without my foundation going on patchy and this definitely is one of them. I also like how I can wear it on no makeup days since it evens out my complexion a little bit. It also has a sheer matte finish and feels non-greasy to the touch. Overall, definitely a great year round sunscreen to have if you prefer a nice formula that is sensitive skin friendly and fragrance-free.
