Best of 2015

I guess it’s no secret, I love trying new beauty products!

Not only for myself but also to share with you. This was a great year for beauty products, I have found so many great brands that I love!

I was introduced to natural products this year and love what they can do for my hair and skin. 

I tried new tools like flat irons and hair removal tools. I’ve tried texture spays and serums.
I decided to compile all of my favorite items into a list.

Here is a list of my favorite beauty products for 2015.


MarcAnthony Sexy Beachy Waves Mousse - Promotes shine, helps add body to straight or wavy hair. Excellent for soft, voluminous waves.

Best Texturizer:
BigSexy Hair Powder Play - volumizing and texturizing powder for every hair type with no product feel! It’s weightless, odorless and colorless on hair. Gives great volume all day! Worth the price!

Best Dandruff Relief:
dermae® Scalp Relief Shampoo and Conditioner – The best product I have ever tried to get rid of dandruff! I LOVED the cooling and tingling sensation both products give the scalp! It feels like little fingers massaging the scalp - feels nice and relaxing. My hair felt so soft and silky, voluminous, shiny and was practically tangle free. With each use the flakes have become less.

Best Root Volumizer:
GarnierFull and Plush Root Amp Lifting Spray Mousse –gives roots volume without weighing the hair down or making it greasy, the hair is soft to the touch and the roots stay lifted all day. 

Best Flat Iron:

Great for all hair types, including naturally curly, wavy, oily, fine, or dry hair, this flat iron is my go-to Holy Grail beauty tool.

Best Hair Serum:

Best Hair Removal Tool
