In case you missed my post explaining what Beauty Crown is all about, you can find that here.
The Beauty Crown Awards are a yearly favorites collaborative effort including beauty bloggers around the globe. The Beauty Crown Awards were created by Lily from Beauty with Lily Liz from My Pretty Obsessions, Jackie from Five Two Certified, and Shalunya from Shalunya & Boyet. We felt that a collaborative effort from a large number of beauty bloggers would be much more interesting to our readers and would garner more attention. The Beauty Crown Awards are a 5 week event with each week covering types of products.
Week 1 – Personal Care Products – Dec 2 – Dec 8, 2013
Week 2 – Facial Products – Dec 9 – Dec 15, 2013
Week 3 – Lip & Nail Products – Dec 16 – Dec 22, 2013
Week 4 – Eye & Misc Products – Dec 23 – Dec 29, 2013
Week 5 – Facial Care Products & Tools – Dec 30 – Jan 4, 2014
Week 1 of the Beauty Crown Awards covers Personal Care Items. Below are my Week 1 Selections:
Shampoo | Head & Shoulders
-I don’t typically change shampoos like most people do…I know you’re supposed to, but I can’t change out my shampoo. I actually don’t have dandruff, but this works for some dry patches I have on my scalp.
Conditioner | Abba Moisture Conditioner
-This has been my holy grail conditioner for a couple years now, I can not go without this baby! It smells of mint and it even leaves a bit of a tingly feeling on your scalp, ahh, it’s just amazing. I tend to have super stat-icky hair in the winter months, thanks to this I no longer have that problem.
Hairspray | Kenra Volume 25 and Aussie Mega Hairspray
-I actually don’t use hairspray on a regular basis, but when I do I normally reach for these two. I like the Aussie one for a light hold and it smells delicious. The Kenra hairspray I like to use for special occasions really, when I really need may hair to stay in place. It’s heavy duty hairspray but it’s still manageable.
Styling Product | It’s A 10 Leave-In Product and Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment
-As far as styling products for my hair, I don’t use anything really. I don’t use mousse or gels or styling creams. I do however, use It’s A 10 regularly along with Macadamia’s Healing Oil Treatment, although they aren’t styling products. They are products I absolutely love and use regularly.
Hair Mask | Macadamia Deep Repair Masque
-This masque is a bit on the pricier side, but I use it once a week, so it lasts me quite some time…I’m actually running out of my current jar…boo!! Absolutely recommend this to everyone, it’s a MUST try!
Dry Shampoo | Batiste Dry Shampoo
-It was torn between Batiste and Tresemme, I absolutely love both dry shampoos, but Batiste takes it this time. Mainly because Batiste has the colored dry shampoo for brunette’s which I really like.
Body Mist | Rio Rumberry from Bath and Body Works
-Unfortunately this line is a seasonal line, I believe they only come out with this scent during the Spring and Summer months…so I make sure to stock up then. It’s one of my all time favorite scents, it’s fruity but not too sweet.
Perfume | Ralph by Ralph Lauren
-This perfume is hands down my favorite, I think this is my signature scent…I just always go back to this perfume. I am awful at describing scents, but I definitely think you should take a wiff of this amazing scent next time you’re at a department store…mmm!
SKIN CARE (Non-Facial)
Body Wash | Olay Refreshing Nectarine Moisturizing Body Wash
-I always go for moisturizing body washes, I love how soft and smooth they leave the skin after a hot shower. This once has been a favorite for most of this year. It also smells delicious!
Bar Soap | Antibacterial Foaming Hand Soaps from Bath and Body Works
-Actually, we stopped using bar soaps years ago. So for hand soaps, I prefer B&BW foaming antibacterial soaps. There are so many different scents and they are usually always on sale.
-I don’t use body scrubs, any recommendations?
Moisturizer | Bath and Body Works Body Butters
-I have really enjoyed the B&BW body butters, they are thick and moisturizing, and there are so may different scents. I can’t pick just one scent, I usually always get a different one depending on the season.
