Dry Hair Lifesaver!
If you're like me, you have oily hair and try not use too many products for fear of pumping up the oil factor. But, if you're like my mom, you have completely dry hair and can't seem to pump enough moisture in your tresses (oh, how us oily-hair gals envy you!). That's where Aveda's new Dry Remedy haircare system comes to the rescue. There are three steps to the system, meant for the driest, most brittle hair (totally my mom - she can go an entire week without washing her hair! sigh...). First, you have the moisturizing shampoo ($24), which should be used daily. My mom uses this and loves how the fragrance isn't too overpowering (just a relaxing slight hint of floral), and it really adds moisture to her dry hair. Next, you should follow with the moisturizing conditioner ($24) (daily as well) - this really helps dangle the hair, which is nice when you go to comb it. And last, the moisturizing treatment masque ($26) gives that extra tender-loving care - this is what really penetrates into the hair and inputs all the moisture. You should only use this once a week or as needed. In a recent study by Aveda, this system improved dry hair by up to 63% - isn't that amazing? So what makes this system work so well? It's a blend of deep moisture conditioners like buriti oil and pomegranate. Macadamia nut oil detangles, while special organic oils like sunflower, jojoba and soybean really lock the moisture in for long-lasting results. Your dry hair never felt so good.

Aveda Vintage Clove Shampoo: Fantastic!
Brunettes, listen up! Now you can save the world and your strands too with Aveda's limited-edition Vintage Clove Shampoo, inspired by the very first product ever made by Aveda - the Clove Pure Plant Shampoo. This modern version is remade with recycled caps and over 96% recycled content for the bottle (the shampoo formula is the same) and is in celebration of Aveda's 30th anniversary! Since I myself am a redhead, I asked a family friend to give it a try for a couple of weeks and see what she thought. She, of course, jumped on it, crossing her fingers her tresses would come out looking tres fabulous. And they did. I didn't tell her the shampoo was meant to enhance her brown hues, making them a richer, darker shade. Here's exactly what H. said: "The shampoo has a rich lather...and the fragrance is soft, but pleasant. It rinses easily, and my hair feels very clean after using it. I've had several people ask if I have darkened my hair since I have been using it. They think I colored my hair, but I guess the color is just more noticable. I can't really tell a difference when I look at it, though." It's made of organically grown clove and organically grown coffee to enhance the warm, brown color. And let me just say, the scent is fantastic! Lemon, ylang ylang and black pepper combine with other pure flower and plant essences to create a truly great aroma you'll love. Follow with Clove Conditioner daily and you should see a intensity in color and shine.

I recently started using BareMinerals and will never turn back. It makes my fair skin silky smooth and keeps my oily skin at bay. It's amazing what one sweep over the face will do!

The Best Cleanser on Earth
I hate to go overboard, but I have to say this cleanser saved my life-ok, my skin. But really. I have had acne problems my entire life and after using this as a part of the 3-step system, my skin cleared up right away. I literally NEVER have to worry about pimples now; it's quite nice-and amazing.

Silky, Smooth, Luscious Lips
OMG - I just started using this gloss a couple of weeks ago and it has to be one of my favorites. Keep in mind, I have used a lot of gloss in my 26 years, but this one beats all the others in silkiness, shine, great color and, best of all, stickiness. There is no sticking to your lips when the wind blows-that is one of the coolest parts. I absolutely LOVE the packaging too with the oh-so-clever names like "Talk To My Agent." So cute!
