New Beauty Finds Under $15


Some brand new beauty and new to me beauty finds under $15 that I’m currently loving from OPI, NYX, JASON, Sally Hansen & More!




The Avalon Organics Revitalizing Peppermint Hand & Body Lotion ($9; amazon.com)  is a lightweight body lotion with a cooling, minty sensation. It is quick absorbing, quite moisturizing and does the job well. More of a spring/summer body lotion that feels refreshing.



The Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Setting Powder in Banana ($12; nyxcosmetics.com) is new from NYX, a soft, blurring face powder with a yellow tone. It comes in various other colors as well and is great for medium/dark skin tones to neutralize ashiness. I also like an all over dusting to keep things matte.



The Pampering Himalayan Pink Salt Foaming Bath Soak and Body Wash ($13; Whole Foods Market) is a new body wash/soak from Jason. It has a relaxing lavender scent and cleanses without stripping. The huge bottle is a great value since a little goes a really long way with this one.



One’n Only Wholesome Plus Oat & Fig Shampoo& Conditioner ($9; sallybeauty.com) is a new sulfate and paraben free haircare line. The shampoo is super gentle, very balancing and leaves my hair feeing super soft and bouncy. The scent is great too and the conditioner detangles really well without weighing my hair down.



The Mega Strength by Sally Hansen ($5.99 target.com) is a new range of nail colors that strengthen and color in one step. They come in some very gorgeous shades and apply beautifully. Persis-Tint is a duo chrome purple with a blue shift. Its a beautiful color for spring that I am currently absolutely loving!


OPI’s Infinite Shine in Smok’n in Havana ($13; ulta.com) is another polish that I’m currently loving. Its a very beautiful coral with a metallic finish. The Infinite Shines have a fabulous formula and brush and this is one color I’d absolutely recommend.

Two Great Hair Masks I'm Loving Right Now!




Currently loving these two hair masks from Alterna and Maui Moisture. One is great if you are on a budget and the other is a nice little splurge if you like luxury haircare. They’re both amazing for fine, dry, frizzy hair, especially during this time of the year. Maui Moisture’s Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask ($8.99; ulta.com) is a very affordable mask that is silicone-free, yet very hydrating, not too greasy and washes off easily. Its a tad thick too, so a little goes a really long way. The Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Restructuring Bond Repair Masque (($45; sephora.com)  is fabulous too and feels luxurious, super nourishing and is a great treat for once or twice a week. This one too washes off easily and does not weigh my hair down. Both these masks smell amazing and I especially like to use them on days when I use a clarifying shampoo, to add moisture back.

Recent Kerastase Discoveries | Aura Botanica, Elixir Ultime


Recent Kerastase Discoveries | Aura Botanica, Elixir Ultime



A few favorites and recent discoveries from Kersatase. The Aura Botanica Lait de Soie Blow Dry Hair Milk ($37; kerastase-usa.com) is a new addition and I absolutely loved it. Its  a super lightweight milky lotion that offers heat protection unto 450F. It doesn’t weigh my hair down, smells great and leaves it super smoothened, shiny and overall very healthy looking. The Elixir Ultime Le Bain Shampoo ($33; sephora.com) is an oil-infused shampoo for dry hair. Its a good shampoo if you have thicker hair and want something super nourishing. While I do love the shampoo, it does make my scalp a tad oily if not followed up with a clarifying shampoo in between washes. The Elixir Ultime L’Huile Originale Hair Oil ($50; kerastase-usa.com) is a beautiful oil that helps smoothen flyways and adds shine. A little goes a really long way with this one and is great while air drying or before styling. The bottle is pretty big and will last me a  good few months as well.
