neutrogena triple moisture deep recovery hair mask

neutrogena, hair, conditioner

i am always thrilled to find beauty products that really work, and when they not only work but they are budget-friendly to boot, i consider that the ultimate win. neutrogena’s triple moisture deep recovery hair mask is the newest addition to my collection of drugstore favorites. just a small scoop of this ultra luxe (yet, surprisingly cheap) cream once-weekly has revamped my summer sun-damaged tresses. it smells amazing, leaves my hair feeling incredibly soft, and gives me that fresh-from-the-salon feeling. while i’ll always love my living proof restore mask, this was a lovely little discovery (if not solely for the purposes of my bank account) and definitely an effective alternative. if summer was way harsh on your hair, i’m thinking that you should treat yourself to some therapy of the neutrogena variety!

beauty to be thankful for

beauty to be thankful for 2012

happy thanksgiving!

this is my favorite of all holidays. it always reminds me how much i have to be thankful for and towards the tippety top of that very long list is the opportunity to share my beauty love with you wonderful people. i absolutely adore blogging beauty and i’m so grateful that you visit the glossarie to read and comment as often as you do. you guys are the best.

also on my thankful list? several standby products that i couldn’t survive without:

top row -
mac powder blush in easy manner
bobbi brown creamy lip color in blue raspberry
chanel lash curler
dior creme de rose lip balm

bottom row -
mane message hair ties
essie beyond cozy
tweezerman zebra slant tweezer
mario badescu buffering lotion
neutrogena naturals purifying pure scrub

this group keeps me looking my best: clear skin, curled lashes, soft lips and flushed cheeks. while it’s true that in the grand scheme of life, beauty products might not rank too high, i really do love and cherish the great ones – and i know you do, too! so, if you’ve got beauty products that you’re thankful for, i would love to hear ‘em.

i hope you all enjoy a warm and cozy thanksgiving with your family and friends.

there’s a new love in my life! neutrogena’s healthy lengths mascara has brought the bambi bigness back to my lashes and at a price i can get used to. the formula lengthens and strengthens wrapping your lashes in rice protein for beautiful nourishment and the brush is amazing (although i had my doubts at first glance!). it leaves not-a-one clump or flake and easily sweeps on drama of the long and thick variety. as for color, i highly recommend the carbon black – it gives that deep, inky look that defines the eye, almost giving the impression that i’m wearing liner. this mascara makes a noticeable difference to the entire face and i am totally wowed.

i just love a good drugstore find, don’t you?!
