Have I Mentioned?? Maintenance Edition

July 3, 2013 § 4 Comments


I happen to be sitting in the waiting area of the service department for my car. As the minutes have turned into hours, I remembered that I have other maintenance items of note:

Christophe Robin’s Rose Conditioner
You may remember that I have been using his shampoo and wheat germ hair mask for a few months now. With success on that end, I decided to go a little deeper and started using this excellent conditioner when I don’t have time for a mask. What can I say? It smells heavenly — and not too strong — and nicely hydrates the hair. And have I mentioned the use of conditioner as shampoo for a light wash? It works especially well when you just want to touch up and not dry our your locks or to give your bangs a little extra shine. Like!

Kate Somerville Moisturizer and Eye Cream
While I have been using Sonya Dakar’s line for a decade with great happiness, I was kind of looking for a change. Since the Kate Somerville Glycolic Polisher is so great on my skin, I thought I would give these two products a whirl. So far, pretty good, but it takes a little time for my skin to get completely acclimated. But, overall, I am digging it! (And still devoted to the Rodin oil and Dakar Retinol treatment.)

Kiehl’s Eye Makeup Remover
I’ve been using this for years and don’t think that I have ever revealed my love of this product. Gentle and effective. Perfect.

And now back to my other regularly scheduled maintenance…

    I have a few Kiehl’s products I adore. Their hand cream and lip balm are two favorites in my arsenal of beauty products on my nightstand. I buy them in bulk just in case they are discontinued. The lip balm is the only product I have ever used that keeps my lips soft and hydrated. It doesn’t wear off right away. I read about it in In Style magazine years ago and have used it ever since. It’s a keeper! My sister gave me a tube of Kate Sommerville’s face mask and it’s great too.

    • Love the Kiehl’s. In fact, I bought some of their rare earth (I think that is what it is called) facial cleanser for Mr. H recently, and I have found myself to be “sneaking it” kind of regularly. And while Kate’s products are a splurge, I am leaning towards the Totally Worth It feeling. xx
