With spring comes not only beautiful weather, but also beautiful pastel colours, new clothing lines and of course new makeup and nail trends. Today I am going to be discussing the latter; pastel nail polish and mannequin nails. In several fashion and beauty blogs I've come across the mannequin nail trend. When I looked into it further I realized that mannequin nails are simply nails painted in a shade of nude that sort of blends in with your skin tone.
...so I could marry you. Wait? Did I say that out loud?
Josie's argan oil products do not come cheap. Which was why I was so excited when I found the shimmer and glow gift set online (unfortunately it is now sold out). My advice would be to keep an eye on the 'Good Buys' section of her website, and order directly from her site. Any purchase over $25 has free shipping! Even though it might seem a bit costly for a small quantity. A little drop goes a long way!
For my face: I apply a small drop of 100% Pure Argan Oil (about the size of a nickel) and warm it up in my hands. I then apply it all over my face as I would any moisturizer - making sure it all gets absorbed. You want to make sure you really work it into the skin.
For my hair: I use two pumps of her Argan Oil Hair Serum, again warming it up in my hands. I then run my fingers through my freshly washed, damp, hair (applying more product to my ends). Even when I tried it on my dry 'day 3 hair' it didn't make it look greasy! My hair has been much softer and much less dry as a result.
Needless to say I'm in LOVE! So I wanted to share that news with all of you. If you get the chance to visit a Sephora - ask for a sample. That was how I tried her light Argan Oil formula- but I didn't find too much of a difference personally. That was also how I tried her hair serum as I was fearful it would make my hair look oily. If you can, I always advise that you try before you buy!
I really want to try out her coconut water cheek gelee. Have any of you tried it yet? I'd love to hear what you think.
