New Haircare Loves

October 7, 2019

Top Hair Care Loves Oribe, Olaplex and Christophe Robin

I’ve been trying some new things in haircare the past few months and have a roundup of my top picks right now. I really love trying new things and am always in the market for good hair masks or anti-frizz products to restore moisture and add shine. It’s been nearly a year since I’ve had color-treated hair and I’m currently in the process of trying to grow out my natural color. My haircare routine has changed since getting highlights and I’ve partnered with Nordstrom to share some of my top go-to picks right now. They carry most of the brands and products I use on a regular basis.

Anti Frizz and Heat Protectant Favorites

I also love shopping there because they have good Beauty Gift With Purchases year round. In my most recent haul I restocked on some of my favorite hair care items for the Nordstrom x SPACE.NK.apothecary gift (available while supplies last) which includes:

A cosmetics bag and deluxe samples of PHILIP B® Weightless Conditioning Water (2.5 oz.), R+Co Balloon Dry Volume Spray (1 oz.), Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo (0.9 oz.), Verso Hydration Serum (0.35 oz.), 111SKIN Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel (0.25 oz.), By Terry Blackstar Eyeshadow in Purpulyn Gem (0.04 oz.), Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment (0.17 oz.), REN Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30 Sunscreen (0.34 oz.), Kevyn Aucoin Beauty The Etherealist Skin Illuminating Foundation in Medium (0.18 oz.), Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream (0.23 oz.), Clark’s Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask (0.03 oz.), ILIA Soft Focus Finishing Powder (0.05 oz.), Rodial Pink Diamond Magic Gel Day Cream (0.3 oz.) and Derm Institute Antioxidant Hydration Gel Masque (2 sachets, 0.1 oz. each) with your $175 SPACE.NK.apothecary purchase. A $278 value. Online and in selected U.S. stores.*

Nordstrom Space NK October Beauty GWP

There are a lot more Beauty Gifts going on right now online. There’s a cute one from Lancome right now, also some good options for minis from Dior, Hourglass, Diptyque, Fresh and more. I always love the Fresh skincare minis.

My Go-To Shampoo and Conditioner

Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve been on the hunt for a good shampoo and conditioner combination for what seems like AGES now. My hair is more prone to breakage with each highlight treatment and Florida water isn’t the best for all formulas. Many formulas are hard to rinse out so finding something that is hydrating but doesn’t weigh the hair down has been tricky. I’ve really loved Olaplex for some time but wanted to try something new. Some Oribe formulas have been hit or miss but I decided to re-try the Oribe Gold Lust Repair and Restore Shampoo and Conditioner and my hair loves them! I’m on my third bottle of both and think I need to buy the supersized versions. They both hydrate, add shine and make the hair soft. The formula rinses out nicely and doesn’t weigh my hair down.

Heat Protectant and Texturizer

Oribe Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray

I blow dry my hair on a regular basis to smooth it and prevent frizz. Most of the time air drying isn’t the best for me. I’ve tried dozens of heat styling sprays and creams. There are a lot of great options out there but the one I keep going back to is the Oribe Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray. It doubles as a detangler for me and smooths out the hair. This is also lightweight and helps minimize frizz. I spray it on towel dried hair.

Even though I want to smooth out the hair, I also sometimes want more volume at the roots. The Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is my favorite and a nice alternative to dry shampoo because it’s not white or powdery like dry shampoo formulas are.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

Smooth Blowout

Olaplex Styling Products

Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother and No 7 Bonding Oil

I’ve been so eager to try everything that Olaplex launches. I bought the No. 6 Bond Smoother and No. 7 Bonding Oil the second they both launched. A little goes a long way for both.

The Bond Smoother is a white cream that is a leave-in styling cream that strengthens and moisturizes the hair to prepare for blow drying. I found it lightweight and it did work to fight frizz. It’s nice on my brittle hair and does protect from heat. For me I like this on damp hair.

The Bonding Oil is an even more lightweight product that’s ultra concentrated. It offers heat protection up to 450 degrees. Since I have thicker hair I found my damp hair soaked it up super fast. I prefer applying this on my blow-dried hair  to add shine and add more protection if I’m straightening it with a flat iron. It’s super tiny but a little drop goes a long way. The dispenser is designed so that only a tiny bit of product comes out with each drop.

Hydrating and Frizz Treatments

Christophe Robin Aloe Melting Mask and Anti-Frizz Milk

Last, my two latest discoveries from Christophe Robin are his new Anti-Frizz Rescue Milk with Shea Butter and the Hydrating Melting Mask with Aloe Vera. Both are 100% worth the splurge. For a no-frizz product his Anti-Frizz Rescue Milk is a nice effective product that glides through damp hair easily for a nice blow out. I’m normally not a fan of milky hair products because they can feel too thick or sticky. This one absorbs into the hair nicely without any sticky feel and for me it’s like the cream/milk version of the Oribe spray. I also love that it’s fragrance free.

The Hydrating Melting Mask is also quite phenomenal to add moisture to my ends in a lightweight way. I’m a fan of all of his aloe vera products – they have a really nice lightweight scent that’s calming and soothing. Color treatments for my hair have made it more tangle-prone after it’s wet. This one makes the tangles go away and allows a comb or brush to glide through more easily after I rinse it out.

Hair Care loves Oribe, Olaplex and Christophe

Hair Care Favorites from Nordstrom

I’m really happy to have rediscovered the Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo and Conditioner. My next purchase will be the large pump sizes of both. For a good hair mask I’ve been so pleased with the Christophe Robin Hydrating Melting Mask. I think the Oribe Royal Blowout Spray will forever be a go-to for me, but I almost like the Christophe Anti-Frizz Rescue Milk a little better right now.

If you’ve been in the market for some new hair care I hope this roundup helped you! I’d love to hear about your hair care loves right now. Does your routine stay the same year round or now that we’ve transitioned to fall do you switch things up?

You can find all my haul picks at Nordstrom. If you’re shopping online don’t forget to check out the Beauty Gift With Purchase page, it’s updated on a regular basis!

Space NK Spring Beauty Edit Bag 2019

February 13, 2019

Space NK Spring Beauty Edit Bag via The Beauty Look Book

It’s that time of year again when the spring beauty events start up! Right now Space NK US has their Spring Beauty Edit Bag from February 13th to 18th while supplies last with any $285+ purchase online or in their stores, use code BEAUTY19 at checkout. Out of all the ones going on right now I think theirs is the best one even though the minimum spend is high, I do think it’s well worth the splurge.

They value the gift at over $450, mostly all minis, items inside this year’s bag:

  • Diptyque Roses Candle 3.4 oz
  • Sunday Riley Good Genes 5 ml
  • Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 0.12 fl oz
  • Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo 1 oz
  • Ilia Beauty Tinted Lip Conditioner in Forever 0.04 oz
  • Chantecaille Rose de Mai Cream 5 ml
  • Omorovicza Rejuvenating Night Cream 0.5 fl oz/15 ml
  • Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask 1 oz
  • Patchology Clean AF Cleansing Wipes 15 pack
  • Verso Hydration Serum with Niacinamide 10 ml
  • Coola Makeup Setting Spray 10 ml
  • Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray 30 ml/1 fl oz
  • Clark’s Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask 10 ml
  • 111Skin Clinical Exfoliator 0.35 oz
  • Malin + Goetz AHA Treatment Solution 0.2 fl oz
  • Golden Faden MD Skin Balancing Mask 7 ml
  • Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream 7 ml
  • Rodial Radiance Transforming Mask 8 ml
  • Kevyn Aucoin Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Cerise 0.024 oz
  • Miriam Quevedo Platinum and Diamond Luxurious Mask 50 ml
  • REN Clean Skincare Radiance Glow Daily Vitamin Gel Cream 0.51 oz
  • Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed 1.7 oz/10 ml
  • Emma Hardie Brilliant Face Oil 0.17 oz
  • By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder Deluxe 0.45 oz
  • Rahua Classic Conditioner 22 ml
  • Lipstick Queen Mini Altered Universe Time Warp 0.08 fl oz
  • R&Co Deluxe Waterfall Moisture and Shine 15 ml
  • Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Exfoliating Moisturizer 0.13 fl oz
  • Derm Institute Cellular Rejuvenating Serum 0.17 oz
  • Pink zip bag

I can vouch for the Diptyque, Hourglass, Oribe, Briogeo, Christophe Robin and Bumble and Bumble products in this year’s gift bag. All of these are excellent and if you haven’t tried them yet this is the perfect way to do so!

There are so many brands to pick from I don’t think I really need to do a recommendations list but in case you don’t know what to splurge on, my top 5 favorites are mostly hair care right now. I actually just bought a lot of Oribe from Neiman Marcus and their gift bag was very disappointing. I really should have waited for this event, ordered online for a second bag to gift to my mother in law.

Top five loves right now:

  1. Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask is one of the best hair masks I’ve used (to me it’s better than Kerastase and Oribe). I really want to try the shampoo version of this mask.
  2. Christophe Robin Shade Variation Mask with Temporary Coloring in Warm Chestnut was the best tinted mask for color treated hair my first round of highlights, this second round I’ve gone lighter and think I need the Golden Blonde version now
  3. Oribe Run Through Detangling Primer came highly recommended by one of my pickiest friends. She used to work in the hair care industry for product development and she’s tried everything she possibly can. This is her go-to and she told me it was “the best.” I finally caved and bought a mini size. She was right. It’s amazing and I need the full size for sure. I don’t know that I’d call it THE best, it’s saved my hair with this second round of highlights, but I still think it’s a tie with the next item I’m listing below.
  4. Christophe Robin Hydrating Leave-In Mist with Aloe Vera is something I used more of as a detangling spray on wet/damp hair. This was one of the few lightweight hydrating sprays that didn’t weigh my hair down. A light spritz allows any brush or comb to brush through my hair without any tugging or tangles.
  5. 111Skin Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Masks are my holy grail of sheet masks. The set is crazy expensive but these plump and smooth the skin like nothing else I’ve tried.

Also linking a few other favorites below. Sunday Riley Good Genes is great, Space NK also stocks By Terry, Byredo, Lipstick Queen, Ouai and Susanne Kaufmann.


Some newer launches you might want to check out while the gift is going on:

Space NK GWP

I’m currently in the middle of preparing and bracing myself for a hurricane and if you followed me on Instagram stories you know I had a trip to New York for a few days. Due to the unpredictable weather patterns I did not know if I would be able to fly back to Florida. At the last minuted I made the decision to cancel everything so I could stay with my husband and fur babies. There is so much that is unknown – even right now. We are keeping a close eye on the alerts and weather patterns – what the news doesn’t convey clearly is that there are different evacuation orders depending on county. We also know what zone we are in and have an evacuation plan in place.

Had I been able to go to New York I would have stopped by Space NK and bought a few of the new By Terry Compact Expert Dual Powders. I still hope to check them out in the near future. A few other items on my love list that I’d recommend include Diptyque Baies, Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation, Hourglass Confession Lipsticks, Christophe Robin Volumizing Paste, Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo, 111 Skin Bio Cellulose Sheet Masks, Chantecaille Poudre Lumiere, By Terry Stylo Blackstar.

Space NK Loves and Wishlist

A few of you have messaged me asking whether I think the Barneys Love Yourself Bag or the Space NK Autumn Beauty Bag is better. I think it’s a close call because both have really good options! I have a slight preference for the Barneys bag mainly because it has more items I really wanted to try including the new Byredo fragrance and some hair products. The minimum buy for the Barneys GWP is also lower at $200 vs Space NK’s which is $275. Do note the Barneys bag has 25 items (plus the bag) while the Space NK bag has 30 items (plus the bag). Both are really very good though.

You can find the Space NK Autumn Beauty Edit Gift bag while supplies last in the US in Space NK stores and online at Space NK.
