Let’s face it. With the hectic schedule everyone’s got nowadays, having to wash, condition, blowdry and style your hair every day – especially when you have long Asian hair like I do – just seems pretty impossible. So how can you keep your hair clean and healthy without spending hours in the bathroom? I reached out to the folks at Ojon for help and a sample of their Rub-out Dry Cleanser landed on my doorstep.
Formulated with Amazonian White Clay, Silk Powder, Rice, Potato starches and Soap Bark Extract, the Rub-out Dry Cleanser lets you kill two birds with one stone by removing impurities, toxins, excess oils and product build-up while adding volume to your hair at the same time.
All you have to do is spray the product directly onto your hair and massage it into the scalp and from the roots to the ends. The process takes less than 5 minutes and every time I use it, my hair becomes instantly refreshed and lifted.
Available in 4 gorgeous shades of golds and bronzes, Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer ($9) comes in the cutest compact and are such a great dupe of my favorite MAC Mineralize Skinfinish – at half the price!
The bronzers impart a dewy, bronzed glow and can easily be layered on for more color. I like to dip a large powder brush into this and buff onto the skin for a natural glow or you can use it wet for a more intense effect.
My only gripe is they don’t travel well and tend to break easily so make sure you keep them somewhere safe.
Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer is available at Walmart for $9.
Having smooth, supple skin can take years off your real age, which is why everyone should befriend a moisturizer that delivers that. Case in point, Filextra Facial Revolumizing Treatment with Collagen by GoodSkin Labs.
The Filextra claims to instantly restore moisture, protect and even tone and plump up your skin in just 4 to 8 weeks. Active ingredients include HyActive, which stimulates natural Hylauronic Acid production; Natural Collagen Boosters to help create a more supportive, more stable skin structure; Aqualance to help replenish skin’s H2O to optimal level, and an advanced Lipid Filling Complex, which fills in the gaps and act as a protective barrier to surround the newly added H2O so skin can hold onto essential revolumizing moisture.
Kenzoki’s skinare products have never failed me and their latest Marshmallow Mask is no different.
Containing Cocoa Butter, Cameline Oil and Cotton Butter, the Marshmallow Mask claims to hydrate, soothe and repair normal to dry skin.
Lately, I have fallen in love with ECRU New York CosmeticHairCare Silk Nourishing Spray ($24) to keep my long, thick Asian hair looking shiny and moisturized as ever.
The Silk Nourishing Spray is a nutrient rich, weightless conditioning mist that instantly detangles hair and retains moisture and shine. It contains Aloe Vera, silk proteins and B5 penetrate to smooth away split ends and frizziness and UV inhibitors to prevent sun damage and thermal abuse.
I use this in the morning before I style my hair and I love how it makes my hair so soft and shiny yet manages to feel so lightweight! It also has a very faint smell that is fabulous! I will definitely be keeping this around for the colder months.
