Kerastase Dupe?! March Beauty Baby and Lifestyle Favorites

Kerastase Dupe?! March Beauty Baby and Lifestyle Favorites

         I have some awesome favorites to share with you this month! As always, I have divided my favorites into three categories: beauty, baby, and lifestyle. 


Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme

 Too Faced Lip Injections Extreme

           Meet my new holy grail lip plumping gloss. Yes, it is that good. I'm on my second tube of this stuff and will continue to buy it until they discontinue it (which I hope is never!). 

          I have run the gambit with plumping products and glosses. Prior to using this gloss, I felt as if my upper lip was disappearing when I smiled. After about two weeks of use, I honestly think it helped my upper lip become fuller. The product does state that it has long term effects and I feel it has delivered. I have worn this gloss almost every day with reapplication multiple times a day (like I would with any gloss), and I LOVE the way it has made my lips look. 

       However, if you do not like products that sting, do not buy this gloss. It definitely stings when you first apply it. Also, DO NOT kiss your baby if you are wearing this!!! The plumping agents are too intense for their baby skin and will irritate it...but it will leave you with juicy lips. 

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

 Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

        This overnight mask was included in one of my Christmas gifts from the hubby. I don't think I would have ever purchased it as I have combo to oily skin, leaning more towards oily. However, I use Retin-A and don't drink as much water as I should so though my skin is oily, it can still look dehydrated. I was looking for a mask to try and help with dullness and pulled this out of my stash. Boy, oh boy, this stuff is awesome! It leaves my skin so soft, hydrated, and supple. Bonus, a little goes a long way so I am still working on the original tube my husband gave me. 

Suave Keratin Infusion Smoothing Conditioner, leave-in Heat Protectant, and Oribe Run Through Detangle Spray

Suave Keratin Infusion Smoothing Conditioner Suave Leave-in Heat Protectant Oribe Run Through DeTangle Spray Review

      This trio is rocking my world! My hair has been extra frizzy because of crazy weather and running the humidifier for my son. I was searching for a remedy when my friend Nicole suggested I try the Kerastase line of hair products for frizz. I don't live near any salons that sell Kerastase, and Ulta does not carry this line. Being a new momma, I honestly do not venture out much more than the grocery store, gym, and Ulta. Exciting stuff right? #momlife 

         When I saw this at the grocery store I decided to give it a try. The products claim to work just as well as Kerastase and they sure do leave my hair feeling amazing. I don't battle frizz and my hair feels silky smooth. Total favorite for this month! 

           Though my hair was smooth and frizz free, it still was a knotted mess. After having David, my hair would easily not. So annoying. Nicole included the Oribe spray in a goodies box she sent me a couple of months back and I was excited to see if it solved the knotting issue. Between this trio of products, my hair is now back under control and Spring ready. Bring on the weather!


Baby Magic No-Rinse Wash and Wet Ones Extra Gentle For Sensitive Skin

        Best toddler combo for the win! If you have a toddler who is feeding himself, then you will inevitably have a messy child. Because it just isn't practical to bathe David 3 times a day, this combo helps me keep David looking and smelling clean in between meals.  I didn't even know they sold No-Rinse soap for babies! It's like their version of dry shampoo (though I've yet to try this stuff on his hair). David suffers from eczema and neither of these products have made him break out or irritated his skin in the slightest. 

Versa Spray Handheld Sprayer for Bathtub

       Bathtime game-changer under $10? Yes, please! My back was killing me from having switched David's bathtime to our big tub. The bathtub did not have a hand held sprayer and the spout hit against the actual tub wall. I looked on Amazon and found this handheld sprayer for under $10 and decided to give it a go. Game-Changer. I LOVE this thing. I even love it for when I take a bath and use hair masks. I can easily rinse my hair with clean water, sans acrobatics! 


Home Theatre Projector

      As new parents, Corey and I don't frequent movie theaters. We wanted to recreate the experience at home so we purchased a projector for our finished basement. Oh man, this thing is a game changer. It is less expensive than buying a conventional television of the same size and truly does create a movie theater environment in your own home. 

      In addition to using the projector for family movie nights, we also use it for workouts and baby David's play time. I use it almost every morning when doing my yoga routine and every afternoon when David is playing in the basement. Absolute favorite!

Bluedio Bluetooth Portable Speaker

     I love to listen to music while cooking. Music is a fun way for me to relax at the end of the day and this little speaker makes it happen. It has amazing sound for such a small speaker! I found this when researching for Bose dupes during Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised and have been using it almost every day since. 


 Marble Themed Bullet Journal Notebooks From Michaels

 Marble Themed Bullet Journal Notebooks From Michaels

I am obsessed with these new notebooks from Michaels! I am also very happy that they are only $6.99 each! #winning I have been using them as my journal for my entrepreneurial journey with the blog and have been loving them. They come with a bullet journal style index in the beginning and a place for you to write in the page numbers. They don't come pre-numbered, but at $6.99, I am not complaining. 

         That concludes my favorites for the month of March. Let me know what you have been loving? I'm always on the hunt for exciting new products.
