That’s right friends, Team Normal is getting together to tell y’all about our silly beauty products that we just couldn’t live without.
Late one night I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and an advertisement for this gem popped up. I was TRANSFIXED. I buy make-up dupes, I give myself my own pedicures and manicures, and I refuse to wax my eyebrows anymore. But one thing I happily spend my money on is my hair. I’ve had every hair cut and color you can imagine, and I am a total snob and will only use Paul Mitchell products. But this little hair scrubber thingy, y’all it haunted me. Literally.
Because I watched the video on Facebook, guess what started popping up all over my Facebook and YouTube ads? Yup. When that still wasn’t enough to convince me to pay $20 for it from some rando company, Amazon decided it was time to close the deal. This guy popped up on my suggested buys list and well, I bought it. It was only $7 and I was willing to take the risk.
IT. IS. AMAZING. I have extremely thick, long, color treated hair, that I also ALWAYS put product in even if I know I won’t be leaving the house for several days. This thing is like…I don’t even know. It scrubs my head and makes my shampoo all lathery and amazing, it feels so good on my scalp, it gets my scalp super clean, and (and this part I cannot stress enough) it finally took care of that weird itchy head thing I would sometimes get for literally no reason. My hair doesn’t get tangled at all from this and it stays grease-free for longer than when I don’t use it. Everyone I know is getting one for Christmas next year.
In case I don’t know you, buy yours here.
I am not a beauty product guru, by any means. My cabinet is filled with stuff that I purchased thinking I would use, and that sits, unopened, to this day because it’s either too much work, or I totally forgot about it. Like Laura stated above, these days you can’t search anything on the internet or click on anything on social media without your feed being full of more ads of the same kind of things. That being said, I have a couple of things that I have always been unhappy with: my eyelashes are blonde and short, and my skin likes to erupt at random times for no apparent reason.
I generally skip most of the ads that pop up, but one day I decided to watch a video on these little suckers, and thought “Well, what can it hurt!?” Turns out, nothing! They are $14 on Amazon for 72 of them, and that is a bargain.
You basically wash your face at night, stick these clear gel dots on any blemishes, and the next morning when you peel them off, they’ve pulled the gunk out of them and you can go on with your day. I have had to use them no more than two nights in a row on any spot since I’ve gotten them. Pretty cool! Get them here.
For my lashes, I had a friend who I kept asking “How in the world did your lashes get so long?” and then promptly forgetting the product she told me she was using. I finally went and ordered this right after she told me, and y’all, this product is seriously amazing. My teenage daughters are begging me to buy it for them, but I told them no because although I think it’s a wonderful product, it is not cheap. It is $40 for 3 fluid ounces, and its lasted me since November.
I put it on every morning after I put on my mascara – it’s just one swipe across the lash line and done. It is super simple to use, which is great for me! It hasn’t caused me any problems with my eyes either, even though I have terrible allergies all year round. Bonus for me: this isn’t an MLM product! (You all know how we aren’t MLM fans here at TN.) Go get it here.
I LOVE nail polish. But, I can also be a bit of a klutz and knock things over especially if I’m trying to keep my nails from getting dented and dinged. Enter TWEEXY! The wearable nail polish holder! It secures any size bottle! OPI, Essie, square, rectangle, Live Love Polish. They all fit. It comes in 14 different colors and you can get it here.
So there you have it friends, a complete list of ridiculous beauty products we got schmoozed into buying and we ended up actually loving hardcore.
