Beauty Fix: Benefit Ooh La Lift and Skinny Skinny Dry Shampoo Reviews
Benefit's Ooh La Lift Review
The weird thing is that my latest discovery at Sephora in Times Square has been around, but I never really appreciated it. After dabbing some Nars concealer under my eyes, I blended in Benefit's Ooh La Lift ($22, both available at Sephora). I am honest as the day as long, and I swear, thanks to the Ooh La Lift, I instantly looked well-rested and (here's the killer part) more youthful. So love love love Ooh La Lift. I practically tap-danced out of the store.
skinnyskinny Dry Shampoo Review
In olden times, Marie Antoinette would wear powdered wigs. I am so glad that times haven't changed much, and we still can just sprinkle stuff on our real heads and talk about cake.
I am a believer in washing hair, but dry shampoo is ideal and convenient for touching up your roots in the afternoon. Recently, I tried skinnyskinny's Black Pepper and Rose dry shampoo ($32, skinnyskinny.com) while visiting the company's shop in Williamsburg. For one, it's organic. So I feel very safe shaking this powder on my fickle head. Once I put it on, I discovered this product instantly freshens your hairdo. The scent is sweet and not too powerful. Unlike some versions by competitors, there is no "chemical" scent to speak of -- phew!
Also, call me silly, but I was a little afraid the pepper scent might make me sneeze. Thank goodness, no!
I "heart" both these products. Hope you have a chance to try them out too!
