Hi, my name is Shantel and I am a product junkie. First it started with hair products in middle school, then makeup in high school and college, and now skincare. I love trying new products. I get excited about launches and when I hear someone rave about a product they love. Favorite videos have always been my favorite beauty videos to watch on YouTube because it’s honest, with good intent, tried and true.
I am dedicating this post to my own personal beauty favorites. This will be an ongoing list of my absolute favorite products that I tried, ended up loving and now cannot live without. I think that it’s to put them in one place. However keep in mind, I don’t use these products all day, everyday. I rotate them depending on what I need at the moment, what I have at the moment and to just give me space to try new things. If you have any questions, comment below. If I left a segment blank, I haven’t found my holy grail beauty favorite yet.

HAIR

After going back to my natural hair in 2012, I went through the crazy phase of buying everything. Now I know know about my own hair better and what she likes. This category changes the least. My hair type is naturally curly, high density, coarse, with low porosity. If you want to know my full hair routine, click here. I’ll only list my absolute favorites for this list. Check out that post for a full breakdown.

CONDITIONER:
Any Tresemme conditioner really but favorite since they discontinued their Naturals line is the Luxurious Moisture, Moisture Rich With Vitamin E- it’s affordable, not too heavy and moisturizing.

SKINCARE

My skin type is oily but not acne prone. I get one or two pimples a month when it’s that time of the mouth so my focus is on working on hyperpigmentation to get an even skin tone. Adding AHA/BHAs to my routine to help cell turnover and prevent aging with under eye creams every night are my focuses. Like most oily skin people, I have enlarged pores but I’m learning that that can’t be changed. If you want to know how to build a simple but effective skincare routine for your skin type, click here.
FACIAL CLEANSER:
MASKS:
Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Clay | Deep Pore Cleansing Facial & Body Mask | The Original 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay- wow that’s a mouthful but every single claim is true. I recently added this clay to my skin and hair routine and it is a game changer ! Let me know if you want an in depth post about it’s healing properties and the many ways to use it.

I have some good blushes but none that really scream to me. If I had to choose a brand, I would pick Wet n Wild and Milani.

BODY

BODY WASH:
BODY SCRUB:
BODY BUTTER/LOTION:
Nivea – if you’re looking for a lotion that gives long lasting moisturizing AND shine, this is for you. The line comes in different ranges of moisture from normal to very dry skin. I like the Original Daily Moisture and Essentially Enriched (thicker than original).
