Top 5 Beauty Products I Can't Live Without

1. Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo has definitely been a life saver for me many times. I like the Tresemme brand the best because it does what it's supposed to - soak up the oil in your hair, leave your hair with a fresh scent, and also give it a bit of a boost in volume. It can also be found at most drug stores and it won't leave your wallet starving. As with most dry shampoos, you get that powdery residue in your hair when you first spray it on but once you wait a bit for it to absorb into your hair you can just gently mix it well into your hair to blend it in. Dry shampoo is sometimes really necessary for me because I can't always wash my hair every day or else it dries out. That's why I turn to dry shampoo to help me out!

 2. Moroccan Oil
This stuff has done WONDERS for my hair. Moroccan oil has gone up in popularity the past couple of years and with good reason. It helps keep your hair shiny, less split ends, less breakage, less frizz, protects from heat products, etc. I only use a small dab after every hair wash, and mostly put it on my ends. If you haven't checked it out yet, definitely go buy some.

3. Devacurl Heaven in Hair
Okay, at this point you can tell I'm obsessed with my hair. I'm not one to spend hours on doing my hair, especially because I have so much of it and it's so thick and I have absolutely no patience when it comes to stuff like that. Normally I just blow dry my hair for 5 to 10 minutes and then put it in a bun to finish drying and give it some natural wave. BUT on those days where I don't even want to do that (or in the summer time) I use this magical stuff. It's the most expensive hair product I own (the 8 fl. oz jar costs around $25) but I'm only half way through it and I've had it for months. You only need a little bit for it to have an effect. What it does is leave your hair less frizzy but gives it beautiful waves. Sometimes all I have to do is put some in before bed, put my hair in a bun, and I wake up looking like this:

4. Aveeno Moisturizer Clear Complexion
At $16 a bottle, this is one of my more expensive drug store buys, but I've had it for months as well because I only need a little bit. It's my favorite moisturizer because it helps keep my skin from feeling dry but doesn't leave it gross and oily either. It also helps with clearing up your complexion and it smells pretty good.

5. 55+ Efficacite Exceptionnel (lightening lotion)

You're probably thinking, what the hell is this shit? It's definitely not a product I expect most people to know about. But I love it. It's a "lightening" lotion which basically means it helps with dark spots and acne scars, stuff like that. It has also really helped clear up my skin. I don't really know the science behind it, but it's worked some miracles for me in the past. If you're looking for something to not only help with break outs but also getting rid of dark spots or evening out your skin, I would definitely give this a try. It's usually less than $20 and it lasts a long time, too.
