This is my first (and hopefully last) time experiencing summer in the desert and it is an adjustment to say the least! Making the move from beautiful Southern California to the dry desert is definitely taking a toll on my entire body. My skin doesn’t know whether to be dryer than the Sahara or oiler than a prepubescent teenager. My hair is oily at the roots, but dry as straw at the ends. I don’t know how people do this year after year! Whenever I experience a climate change or aggressive breakout, I know it’s time to bring out some high end products.
Over the years, I’ve tried hundreds of products from all price ranges. When I purchase a less than satisfactory product from the drugstore, it’s frustrating but I’ll survive. However, when I spend some serious cash on a high end product, I expect to feel like Gigi Hadid or else its going back! All the products linked below have been a part of my collection for years and never failed me. Now I’m not saying you need to purchase luxury products in order to solve your beauty needs. There are plenty of drug store products that I use every day such as the Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser. However, I’ve realized over the years that when it comes to skin and hair products, sometimes you get what you pay for.
If you’re in the market for new high-end products, then definitely try samples first! That little aisle of heaven before the register at Sephora is a great spot for this. Don’t be afraid to ask the beauty experts at your local department store for samples too! This is your hard earned money we’re talking about, so you want to be sure you’re investing in the right products.
Check out some of my favorite products below and I’d love to hear about yours in the comments! XOXO
