Stuff I Really Love

I am a total girly-girl and to me, there is nothing better than finding and sharing a good beauty product. I am by no means a "product junkie" but there are certain things that I really, really love. Here are a few things I'm totally loving right now:

1. Silk Elements Deep Conditioner: I deep condition my hair once a week with a plastic cap under the dryer for 20 minutes. Some protein based products give me a fit, but not this one. My hair feels strong and I don't experience any breakage. 2. Organic Root Stimulator Glossing Polisher: I just started using this product because my hair lacked shine. Just a small drop does the job. The package says to use with heat (curling iron or flat iron) for optimal results but I don't use alot of heat on my hair and I still get the shine that I'm looking for.
3. Flexirods: I'm in the middle of a relaxer stretch and I workout at least 6 times a week, so I've had to sacrifice cute hairstyles. Usually during the week, I'll put my hair in a bun but on the weekends after a shampoo I'll air dry and then roll it up with flexirods. They produce a really soft, bouncy curl that reminds me that I am still cute.

4. MAC Fix +: I bought this stuff ages ago and had no idea what it was for. Why did I buy it? Because those girls at the MAC counter are great at their jobs. Anyway, I finally figured it out ... I use the MAC Studio Fix powder foundation but sometimes the look seems too matte and at the end of the day my face looks dull. Now, I just apply a few sprays of the Fix + and my complexion is all dewy and pretty. I love it!

5. Diorshow Mascara: This is the best mascara that I have ever used. Ever! My lashes appear so much longer and with no clumping. I love this stuff.

What are some of your favorite beauty products?

Bare Escentuals is at the top of my list! I love that powder foundation. I recently discovered Make Up Forever lipstick and gloss and it's my new favorite. As far as my hair is concerned I'm pretty much addicted to the One n Only Argan curl creme I blogged about a couple of weeks ago. I can only use flexi rods for a 30 minute curl. Do you use any product on your hair to keep the curls?

@Diva: I use Elasta QP moisturizer and the ORS glosser. The curls are loose but they stay all day.
