I'll start ^__^
Hair: I've got long, flat, brown hair and that I have to wash once every two days, at the moment I'm using this shampoo and conditioner from Herbal essence http://www.herbalessences.com/us/collections/hello_hydration/default.jsp
and I really like it! It makes my hair all soft and tidy <3
Skin: I have to use boring cleanser and moisturizer from the pharmacy because my skin is a bit pimply.. and once a week a make a scrub i found here on CO+K http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/choc_oat_facial
Tell me what's your beauty routine!
I wash my hair once a week because of the dreads with a simple Avon shampoo.I dont use conditioner,because it will make the dreads furry.After that I rub some hair wax on each dread.
I like to shower with some home made body scrub.I just take two spoons of shower gel and two spoons of salt and it makes my skin soft.I use Nivea body lotion.
For my face I use a night masc from Avon-Planet Spa with olive oil.And use some tonic if I feel I need any.
And I have at home a big bottle of infusion(NaCl) and clean my piercings almost every day.
Well thats my beauty routine if I have time and dont forget.
I've got long dark wavy-curly hair, colored with natural henna, so it have a red glow. I wash every 3 days with a henna shampoo. I never comb or hot-air dry my hair since these things destroy the natural curls and make the hair frizz. I just finger comb the hair when wet with a henna condicioner that also gives a color boost. If the hair appears some days a little frizzy I use salt water spray. I don't have any split ends.
Now for the skin I use mainly Body Shop products, due to the high quality and that they don't test on animals. An aloe shower gel, a scrub soap bar and almond body butter to moisturise and for the face the seeweed series for combination skin and a clay mask. But because all these cost $$$ I want to switch to homemade products (thanks co+k!
I use sometimes plain sweet almond oil to the tips of the hair and on my body. It makes wonders! Because it can stick to the clothes I only use it on the summer months, that is the half year in Greece! Is the most healthy and natural thing to apply on the skin and also protects from the solar radiation.
Well, I do all these when I'm not lazy
Ive used St. Ives Apricot Scrub since I can remember, its wonderful and makes your face feel so awesome. Ive turned other people onto it over the years, and its inexpensive and lasts a long time. When I get out of the shower I use Hempz body moisturizer for sensitive skin, its also amazing and makes your skin feel silky smooth.
I'd looove to try St. Ives Apricot Scrub! sounds yummy! I hope it can be found here in Italy..
If they dont you can always try ebay, or buy it online somewhere else
i have short(almost shoulderlength now, i'm letting it grow longer), dark hair. used to be different tones of dark brown, now i dyed it with washing out dye that should stay in about one and a half months. except its been about 3 months since i dyed it and it is still in and still very dark. i like it^^ its almost black brown now. i was it once every two days, and wash my face with clearasil goo. i'm a teenager so i still get spots. uhm. after showering, my hair is always wet. i blowdry it, so it has more volume and is dry before i go to school, and i brush it. i brush my teeth twice a day, and if i have time and aren't to lazy i put on a very little bit of eye pencil and some mascara. and i often use pink petroleum jelly on my lips, other wise they crack and that's painful and looks ugly. and i like the way it makes my lips all soft. sometimes i scrub my face, too. with almond goo from kruidvat.
uhm...that's about it...
i wash my hair with pearl proteine & citrus shampoo and conditioner, it makes my hair shiny and soft and airy. and i like that^^
Today I've bought the St. Ives Apricot Scrub
can't wait to try it! How many times a week should I use it Kasey?
I used to use St Ives Apricot Scrub. I don't know why I stopped using it tbh. I used to use it most days, every day or every other day, or whenever your skin is feeling a bit crappy. Some peoples skin are less tolerant. I'd try it maybe once a week Susanna and see how you get on with it, then introduce it gradually more frequently?
Also every now and again I have a mask thing from Avon. It's not a peel, its like a cream, you rub it in and it tightens your skin? It feels amazing after you wash it off...
At the moment I use Pantene shampoo which is ok, but I've found most shop bought shampoos don't really do much for my hair, so I might try and make some shampoos or deep conditionors.
As for moisturising I use an Avon cream
I start off by applying cleanser over my whole face (avoiding my eyes and lips) with a cotton pad, then i do the same with toner. Then i apply moisturizer. I use 'Lemon-aid and Erase Paste by Benefit' for concealers.
And I use scruples products on my hair, which are sadly exclusive to salons D:
Hey! I read about the St.Ives Apricot scrub thing... Personally, I have a fair-ish skin tone, and the scrub makes skin more susceptible to tanning and skin cancer, so I suggest using it maximum 3 times a week if you also have a fair skin tone, and especially if you live in a place with a lot of sunshine.
As for my daily routine, I don't really use a lot of products. I have straight and wavy hair, which is easier to manage. I have a dark brown (almost black) haircolour, so I want to keep it light and natural. I wash my hair every 2 days (skipping one day in between). I love using Head & Shoulders and Dove shampoos. These are really lightweight, but they give your hair just the right amount of moisture without weighing it down; however, this does not work for people with frizzy and dry hair. I do not like to use conditioner for my hair, because it feels really heavy and weighs my hair down. I do not like to use hair products for my hair, unless it is special event, then I use some hair spray. Otherwise, I usually just flat-iron it.
Skin products: 1. Neutrogena pink grapefruit acne cleanser
2. Shiseido skin softener/toner
3. Revlon photo ready make up
4. Basic make-up (eyeshadow, beige-toned blush)
For those days when I have some acne, I treat it with Origins acne and blemish spot remover. It uses salicylic acid (it isn't as bad as it sounds) to get rid of blemishes already there, and dries acne spots out before they get any worse.
I use some drugstore brand shampoo and conditioner every night, and it seems to work well for me - my hair is clean and smells clean, too.
For my face I use Lush stuff (http://www.lushusa.com/shop/products/face/cleansers/coalface and http://www.lushusa.com/shop/products/visage/toniques/eau-de-melaleuca) every day, and it works SO WELL. I find that if I skip it for 3 or 4 days, I start getting acne. I used to use the St. Ives Apricot Scrub, but I think my skin built up a resistance to it or something, because it stopped working for me.
1. Wash face
2. Concealer and powder
3. Makeup - depends on the day, whether I'm lazy or want to do something fun.
Also, salicylic acid is god!
I have long black hair. Before I used to straighten it everyday, but I try not to since summer is on it's way.
shampoo and Conditioner- Sunsilk hydra TLC. This stuff is great and smells yummy. I usually leave the conditioner in for at least two three minutes. three times a week.
Hair mask- Coconut oil with a little olive oil. Works so good plus it smells great.
I like to use homemade stuff. Occasionally I would use head and shoulders shampoo cause it contains Zinc. It's known to help acne and I tend to break out >.>
Body scrub- olive oil with epsom salt, coffee grinds, sea salt and sugar. I use it all over with the dish washing scrub things.
I like to use Derma products. It's this Acne clearing system. It smells so good and it worked for me so far. I use Derma 17 facial scrub. I use it to make sure I get all my make-up off then after that I was my face with either plain soap, noxema or cetaphil. Just not all at once.
Before I go to bed I smear on a little moisturizer mixed with coconut oil and top that off with vaseline.
I LOVE Lush especially the shampoo bars, but it's quite expensive
I love lush too, its like a treat though. Cause it is expensive.

hair- Herbal essence Deep Clean 2 in 1
face Vichy concealer and loreal compact powder, st ives scrub for sensitive skin and tea tree cleanser
