I got a free sample of Suave’s Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion recently and I have to say it’s amazing. It moisturizes very well, light weight on my skin, and you don’t have to use a lot to achieve results. This winter has been harsh on my skin and my elebows and feet have suffered, but this product has made both areas, and all my curves feel smooth again. They also have this product in a body oil spray that I haven’t tried that yet. I’m sure that would work just as well, especially for the price.
The only drawback is the smell. It’s not a bad smell but I’m not really a fan of it. The Moroccan oil in the product is pungent, but I find it’s worth putting up with for silky, smooth skin. It retails for under $5 for the bottle too. Not bad at all, right? I know a lot of people scoff at Suave brand but you might be pleasantly surprised at how much they have changed as a brand over the years.
The past few days have been a reminder that the Summer heat is right around the corner. This prompted me to stock up on some summer hair supplies for when it is pointless to use a blow dryer and other styling tools.
For my curly haired mavens, Dove makes a great whipped mousse product that is inexpensive. Suave does as well and is even cheaper. I usually finish off the style with Dove’s hairspray. I’ve never been a fan of putting all those creams & salvs in your hair. Avocado and mayo should be kept in your sandwich, not topped on your head. I also don’t believe a lot of those “all natural” items work well. Dove really does have a fantastic line of products for just about every hair type. From coarse and dry, to thin and oily – there is something for you to maintain your coif and it’s not too expensive. All hair needs proper moisturizer, and proper cleansing. Don’t neglect it!
Remember if you are going swimming in the pool to not add any product to your hair. If you do have something in your hair, rinse it out before going for a dip. The chemicals in the pool water will dry your hair out. Once you are done swimming, rinse your hair out with clean water if you are able until you can wash your hair.
I usually add baby shampoo to my hair washing routine in the summer since I am washing my hair more often. It cleans well without weighing your hair down and is inexpensive. You don’t have to buy name brand baby shampoo, the store brand works just as well. Don’t forget the conditioner either. Chlorine dries your hair out big time. If you are an avid swimmer this summer season, deep condition your hair every 2 weeks. A lot of companies make a product that claims to work “the best.” Dove makes a great one that works well and isn’t expensive. You do not have to spend the big bucks for healthy hair.
Keep it simple, moisturized and healthy this summer!
