My Secrets to leaving the house without makeup or a blow-dry


Post by Taislany Gomes • August 14, 2018 • Beauty, Lifestyle, Reviews

Do you leave the house with a clean face or without a blow-dry? I’m genuinely asking because I have friends who do not leave the house without makeup or having their hair done because they don’t feel confident enough.

I still get quite surprised by this because although I love makeup and looking “the part”, I do not have the patience or time to have a full face of makeup or salon made hair all the time.

On that note, I decided to share a few products that help me feel confident to show my natural skin and hair when out and about.

Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior – HERE

Let’s start with this serum that you can take with you anywhere for any occasion. It applies easily and it REALLY does work on the first application.

It is seriously amazing, my skin looks glorious after using it. I have just turned 25 and don’t have a lot of wrinkles, but I can most definitely see reduced fine lines.

Kate Somerville EradiKate Mask Foam – HERE

Another awesome product from Kate Somerville! This goodie contains sulfur which helps to unclog pores and get rid of acne. It also helps reduce the appearance of oily skin.

Did I mention that it can be used as a mask AND a cleanser!? I highly recommend this gel-cream mask.

I also use the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment once a month for a deeper exfoliation. I shall share about it in my next post!

Sand & Sky Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment – HERE

I remember the first time I tried this exfoliating mask; I was so surprised by how healthy my skin looked! An absolute amazing formula for any skin that needs an S.O.S.

I had already tried their mask (check it out here) but it had run out so I am super excited to continue to use again – this baby will definitely be part of my regular skin care routine as it has really helped to bring some life back to my skin.

How to use it:

Use 1-3 times per week. Gently massage onto the skin and let sit for 5 minutes while you check your favourite Instastories. Rinse.

Vitabiotics Perfectil Plus Nails – HERE

This is one of those things I wish I’d started taking years ago! My hair is growing faster and is in much better condition, considering the number of changes it goes through.

My skin looks bright and is clearer and I find it so easy to just place it in my bag and take it on the go. I take them in conjunction with a healthy-ish diet and the creams and hair products mentioned in this post so, it’s obviously a combination of things that support each other.

Would recommend it to anyone who’s in need of some essential nutrients to help maintain skin, hair and nails wellness.

TIGI – Bed Head – HERE

As you guys know, I took my extensions off and that requires extra care of my hair.

I used Tigi Bed Head Beach Bound Protection Spray while I was in Dubai and I just couldn’t get enough! After using it my hair wasn’t frizzy at all, instead, it was smooth and shiny. So, when these two beauts came through I was so excited to try them as I was already so impressed with the beach-bound spray.

Little secret: I tend to use these two together and step one is to apply the Bed Head Beach Freak Moisturizing Detangler Spray followed by a light brush through my hair then, I go over with the TIGI Bed Head Beach Me Gel to give that healthy and effortless texture.

These two are the best combo ever if you’re into a more natural vibe. Not to mention, that they smell divine!!

COCO & EVE  Coconut & Fig Hair Masque – HERE

Another favorite one mine, this cute pink masque is a little life-saver! I actually reviewed it a few months ago (watch it here) and not much has changed – I still love it to bits!

Depending on how much time I have, I leave it overnight, wash it in the morning and wake up with a completely transformed hair! When I rinse it out my hair feels smooth and conditioned like never before. Whenever I use it, I get so many compliments about how sleek my hair is looking, which is a huge confidence boost.

What are your weapons to a natural yet beautiful look?
