I'm a product junkie, too.

So yes, it's true I did pretty much steal this idea from my sister Meghan's blog, but it is an excellent idea! (Copying is the sincerest form of flattery, right?) Plus, although Meg's and I look quite a bit alike and have very similar taste, our skin type and point in life are very different so they will be different from hers anyway :]

For those of you that know me pretty well, you know I spent most of my time growing up with my older sister Meghan, so we're pretty similar in quite a few ways (I think)... and she is a product junkie! Therefore, I am a product junkie!
(Don't forget to check her blog link up top to see her products, too!)

First off - Shampoo and Conditioner.
I have tried sooo many different shampoo's and conditioner's over time (even "high-end" products) , but I always go back to Pantene. I'm not sure what's in it that's different (or maybe what's in my hair that makes me like it?) But I just think it's what works best in my hair. I have naturally curly hair that get's SUPER frizzy, but it also gets pretty greasy after just a day... I find most other "moisturizing" hair shampoos/conditioners leave my hair waaaay too greasy, but this is a good balance :] -I've also started using their straightening cream for curly hair to help get rid of friz... so far I like it

Moroccan Oil is pretty much miracle in a bottle. I love this product.
It totally smooths down your hair and really helps those ends that fry up... I am horrible for blow-drying and flat ironing my hair way too often, and just a couple drops does magic, I swear.

This is where Meg and I are the same...
I actually got into BBW because my sister was going to the states and would bring me back some of these, I was so excited when it came to Canada!
Cherry Blossom, Cotton Blossom and Midnight Pomegranate are my favorite body washes!

I have extremely sensitive combination skin. I've tried proactive, clinique, and specially medicated treatments, and they all made me break into this horrible rash... it was not fun. Shockingly, what actually helped my face the most (and really reduced redness) is actually...
Goat Milk Soap. (about $7 for a box of three bars!) This Merle Norman Liquid Foundation is the only foundation I have ever used that hasn't lead me to a breakout... So far this little bottle has lasted me from mid-May until now, and I think I have a couple more weeks to get out of it! I find it is not one of the most amazing products for complete coverage, but it does make a big difference with un-even skin tone. With a little bit of powder on top, or whatever it is you do for the "problem areas" I'm sure it would do pretty great!


  1. coolio! We do have different skin needs - probably since I am 10 years older :)

    I need to get some Moroccan oil!

  2. I am thinking this new blogging thing is going to give many good ideas for Christmas presents ;]

  3. These BBW showergels looks amazing, wish they would sell them in Norway too!

  4. Hopefully one day they do, they smell so good! :]
