Nature’s Shea Butter Purchase from HauteLook (Beauty Items I Needed)

I have been patiently waiting for a good bit of the Summer for Nature’s Shea Butter to appear on HauteLook again. This time around I stuck to beauty items I actually needed. My package arrived just in time for the start of Fall. I was also out of the White Tea & Shea Anti-Aging Facial Cream.

HauteLook Nature2                       The White Tea & Shea Anti-Aging Cream is a great moisturizer. My youngest daughter also uses this. Maybe I should have bought two.

HauteLook Nature3                                                                                     I make it a point to use the 100% All Natural Organic Argan Oil at night. I will also use the argan oil under my moisturizer when the weather gets cold. I feel like I have an extra layer of protection for my skin.

I do plan on placing another order the next time Nature’s Shea Butter is on HauteLook. 🙂

How I Survived This Past Fall

It was a typical Fall in the City of Pittsburgh. In the beginning there were still some nice mild days. Pittsburgh Fall weather can get pretty cold too. I found myself having to adjust my beauty routine for colder weather. At least I had a preview of what my Winter beauty routine might look like. Here are the items I reached for on a regular basis.

  • Coastal Scents Brush Shampoo Cleanser
  • Nature’s Shea Butter Organic Argan Oil
  • Scarves
  • MAC Polished UP Lipstick
  • Ion Repair Solutions Effective Care Treatment
  • MAC Sable Eyeshadow
  • MAC Handwritten Eyeshadow
  • MAC Wedge Eyeshadow
  • Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
  • Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner

Brush Cleaner        I’ve gotten a lot of use out of the Coastal Scents Brush Shampoo Cleanser. I had to clean my brushes more often since I’ve been doing the NFL Teams Makeup series. It’s nicer to work with fresh clean brushes. This cleanser cleans my thoroughly without drying them out.

Argan Oil                    I use the Nature’s Shea Butter Organic Argan Oil underneath my regular moisturizer. It absorbs into my skin without feeling greasy. The argan oil gives my skin an extra layer of protection against the cold weather.

ScarvesNot only are these scarves fashionable, I wear them to protect my hair from the cold and windy weather. These are the scarves I mainly wore throughout the Fall.

Polished Up LipstickThe Polished Up Lipstick from MAC was easily an everyday lip color for me. It looks very natural.

Ion Deep Conditioner            The Ion Repair Solutions Effective Care Treatment is actually a back-up deep conditioner for me. I used this deep conditioner when I’m now on my Ion Repair Solutions Reconstructor.

MAC EyeshadowMAC eyeshadows in Sable, Handwritten, and Wedge have been my go-to combination for the Fall. This combination comes in handy when I don’t have a lot of time to apply makeup. This combination is not only great for work, but for an evening looks as well. All I need to do is change up the eyeliner and lip color.

Shea Moisture Shampoo ConditionerShea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and Shea Moisture Raw Shea butter Restorative Conditioner have been a haircare staple for me. My hair has a tendency to on the dry side.

HauteLook Haul: Featuring Nature’s Shea Butter

I’ve been obsessed with shea butter recently. My skin has been doing really well this Winter since I’ve added this to my beauty routine. I was intrigued when I saw Nature’s Shea Butter on HauteLook. I decided to give this brand a try. I purchased the Shea Butter Mini Sampler 12-Piece Set.

I do see a difference in a color of the three shea butters above.

I also purchased a bottle of the Nature’s Shea Butter Argan Oil. I really wanted to try an argan oil that was pure.
