5 Hair and Skin care products I currently Can’t live Without
Dove advanced Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil ($5.99), Ponds wet Cleansing Towelettes in evening Soothe ($5.49), yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser ($9.99), KMS California stay dry Xtreme Hairspray ($19.50), and yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask ($15.99)
I spent a few lonely days this month keeping myself occupied while my partner was out of the country for work. While he was away, I checked some new products and, of course, I had my cats and pals for company, and not to mention you charming readers!
I thought it was high time to share some of the hair and skin care products I’ve been absolutely loving lately, so here they are. A lot of these are things I didn’t necessarily expect to like, but now I’m singing their praises.
1. Dove advanced Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil
When Dove advanced Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil ($5.99) caught my eye, I was interested…but I wasn’t convinced I actually needed it. I only wash my thin, typically flat hair once or twice a week to avoid excess oil, so adding a lot more oil to my hair wasn’t something I was inclined to do. but it has actually helped.
One pump dispenses a best amount!
Normally I use about one pump, and then I flip my hair upsidedown and massage that through my ends — but only my ends, and maybe to around the middle of the length of my hair, but never to the roots.
That’s been the crucial to not having the oil increase the oil already atop my head.
My ends do tend to get a little brittle at times, and Dove advanced Regenerative Nourishment Serum uses a mixture of palm, coconut, sweet almond, and sunflower seed oils. Oddly enough, it actually does leave my ends feeling light and fluffy.
2. KMS California dry XTreme Hairspray
I don’t have a ride-or-die hairspray, so I normally bounce from brand to brand. KMS wasn’t a brand I’d previously heard of before, but now thanks to KMS California dry XTreme Hairspray ($19.50) it’s one I will absolutely repurchase from.

This hairspray tames my flyaways and still leaves me able to run my fingers through my hair at the end of the day. Seriously, there’s nothing a lot more bothersome than trying to brush your hair or run your fingers through your hair swiftly and actually pulling out strands.
3. Ponds evening Soothe Cleansing Towelettes
When my partner was out of town, I spent a lot of time with friends, and that typically involved being out late. several of my pals are leaving the city after graduate school, so I took the week to spend time with people I haven’t seen in a while. getting back to my apartment or condo at 2 a.m., though, didn’t leave a lot of time for skin cleansing.

I pointed out liking the original scent Ponds cleansing towelettes in my post about wearing makeup at the gym, and the evening Soothe ones ($5.49) are just as terrific when your skin needs a quick cleansing.
Like the regular ones, they aren’t the best at taking off my makeup, but as far as getting off that grimy feeling from the subway and the city in general, they’re top notch.
4. yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser
For a a lot more rigorous cleansing, I’ve been looking to yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser ($9.99), which I use in tandem with Neutrogena Ultra gentle daily Cleanser. When my skin is feeling extra clogged, or when I’m taking care of pre- or post-menstrual acne, yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser is great. The jelly-like consistency is also tons of fun, and the cleanser isn’t overly dehydrating (also, they brand is incredibly eco-friendly!).

5. yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask
Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Mud Mask ($15.99) is an exceptional precurser to the cleanser, but the thing is, if I don’t stop myself, I might tend to overuse this mask.
It includes an variety of fruit and vegetable extracts, like tomato (obvs), but also aloe, watermelon, and…lentil?
I’ve never seen lentil used as a appeal product ingredient before.
