Refresh Your Beauty Routine For Fall with Meijer Beauty
This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.
It has been a couple of years that I written about how to refresh your beauty routine with Meijer when seasons change. You can read them here, here and here and I can honestly tell you, most of the products in these posts I am still using now.
I like to change up and try new things each season to get ready. But these changes don’t have to be very big or very expensive. Below are some of the products from Meijer for this fall that I have personally tested and I am loving.
Below are a few new things I have tried and I’m continuing to use.
1. Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair – Ultimate Repair Shampoo & Conditioner Set You can find them in your local Meijer store.
I dyed my hair red back in February. The red lasted about 3 months, then it faded to the current color which is still pretty, but I did notice that my hair got some damage from the color. I have thick hair, and it kept breaking at the root.
I have heard a lot of good things about these products. So far, it has been a couple of weeks. I have not seen any big changes with the split ends yet, but what I have noticed already is that I can brush my hair after towel drying. My hair didn’t even get stuck in my brush a little bit like it normally does. I noticed that my hair is more smooth too.
Most people use it because they have fine hair and they need to add the volume. With my crazy busy schedule, I don’t even have time to wash my hair as often as I should. 😉 So I use this product to pump up the roots between washes.
I use it in two ways. The first way I use it is on the crown of my head when my hair is wet. I then blow dry my hair upside down. With my straight hair, this gives good volume for styling. The second way I use this is by using a dry shampoo first to cure the oily problem I see between washes, then I spray dry hair with this product to give me some extra lift and air dry. It works wonders and also controls frizz! I heard some of my friends even use it with clip in extensions. 😉
I try to reduce how often I blow dry my hair. During the summer I just let it air dry. Now that the weather is cooler, I have to use a hair dryer. In order to reduce the damage to my hair and reduce the time spent drying hair, I have been very picky about what dryer to use.
This is a nice hairdryer, maybe not super premium like the new Dyson, but it’s a nice step up from entry or mid level hairdryers. It is very powerful. This hairdryer pushes a lot of air so the drying time is so much shorter. I have thick hair and it took me 5 minutes to dry my whole head. I haven’t seen extra shine on my hair yet but my hair is always shiny, so it is hard to tell, but at least I know it is not damaging my hair now.
I try to not use a lot of heat tools on my hair, but once a while, I like to look young and sleek with glossy hair. So I use this new tool I found at Meijer. The link is a similar one. For the exact same one, you need to go to your local Meijer store.;)
A good straightener for me needs two features. One, fast heating up. This one takes 16 seconds to raise up to 400 degrees. To finish my whole hair it only took 5 minutes too. So I can save some time in the morning to sleep a little bit more or have more time to eat my breakfast. The second feature for me is less damage to my hair. Any heat tools will damage hair, period. But I still want to look good with the least damage possible. With this new straightener, so far, I have not felt any more damage than I already had from dying my hair. 😉
I have super sensitive skin so I have been using expensive body lotions for many years based on my skin doctors order. This year, I decided to try some cheaper brands in the hopes of reducing the cost. I have tried a few, but a few hours later my skin feel achy because it is drying out.
One of my friend has sensitive skin too and she has been using this one and loves it. So I decided to give it a try too. I have to say, for the price, this lotion is super good. I never feel achy a few hours later. When I am taking shower, I can still feel the lotion on my skin from the previous application.
What are a few new things that you are going try this fall? Find some new products and you may just be very happy to finally make the move as I did. 🙂
