Hair Care with Formulate Co

Having healthy hair is super important to me and it is even more important that it’s chemical free. When it comes to skin care, hair care, and make up it is essential to me that all of my products are cruelty free and free from chemicals. I recently had the chance to try out a shampoo and conditioner from a company called Formulate. This company sends you a quiz to take for your hair,  sends you your own customized shampoo and conditioner, plus all their products are chemical free. I can’t wait to share with you all about this product, the process, and the results I got.

 

How to get started:

It is a really simple process to get started. Formulate sends you a short hair quiz to take which is really easy to fill out. They ask you different questions about your hair and what you are wanting for your hair. Then the chemists formulate your customized shampoo and conditioner which only takes a couple days to receive. Their team is so helpful and have great customer service. It only took about a week to receive my package in the mail. The packaging was so nice and easy to open, plus they give you a brochure that tells you about your specific shampoo and conditioner and how to use them. I absolutely love the smell of my shampoo and conditioner. I got the tide fragrance which reminds me of the beach. Formulate also sent me a second set since the first set didn’t quite work for my hair.

 

Results:

The results have been amazing in only a couple weeks, my hair is softer, shinier, and has lots of volume. Plus I love the way my hair feels and smells after I use it.  It took me about 4 weeks to see the best results. My hair was very dry and dull before I started using the products, but now it’s not. At first, my hair had to adjust to the sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, but after a couple days it was back to normal. My favorite part, is I know I am treating my hair with clean and healthy ingredients and not feeding it bad chemicals. I definitely recommend trying this shampoo and conditioner.

Favorite Skin Care Products/ Make up

Taking care of my skin has always been important to me, but until recently I hadn’t put in the effort that I needed to. I didn’t realize how many chemicals and other things are put into moisturizers and foundations and even something as simple as mascara. About two years ago, I made a switch in my make up and skin care routine and have seen amazing results since. I do have to be honest though, I do deal with adult acne now due to a hormonal imbalance from taking birth control pills. I am here to share with you all my skin care routine and favorite make up products.

Taking care of my skin has always been important to me, but until recently I hadn’t put in the effort that I needed to. I didn’t realize how many chemicals and other things are put into moisturizers and foundations and even something as simple as mascara. About two years ago, I made a switch in my make up and skin care routine and have seen amazing results since. I do have to be honest though, I do deal with adult acne now due to a hormonal imbalance from taking birth control pills. I am here to share with you all my skin care routine and favorite make up products.

 

When it comes to skin care, I keep it simple. I haven’t quite found my favorite products yet, but I am trying out something new. I only use two products when it comes to skin care, a moisturizer and a cleanser. I have recently been using Olay rejuvenating anti aging moisturizer and cleanser. They come in a pack at walmart for $25 and they are the best brand name skin care out on the shelfs. However, I have heard a lot of good things about Tula recently and am wanting to try some of their products soon. I will do a full review on their products once I use them. I used to use Senegence 3 in 1 cleanser and daytime moisturizer which I love both and work great! However, if you are looking for something affordable go with Olay. They even have special eye creams and masks now too.

 

My make up routine is pretty simple, but does take some time since I am a perfectionist when it comes to putting make up on. I use all Senegence products and I will never go back to anything else. All of their products have skin care in them, even the lipstick and eyeshadow. I also love that all of their products are cruelty free, gluten free, and water/sweat resistant. I have gone swimming several times with my make up on and it hasn’t come off. It is especially great to have when summer hits and it is warm outside. The only downside of Senegence is the up front price, however I have ended up saving money on make up since the products last twice the amount of time. I became a distributor for them so I could get a discount for myself. So if you are really wanting to try the make up out sign up for that and you can save so much $$ on your make up too.

 

What I use from Senegence:

I use their regular makesense foundation in the color Almond for my skin in the winter and coffee in the summer. It has an spf in it and goes on smoothly, plus it blends with your natural color of your skin. For blush, I love the toasted rose and in the summer the terra cotta. The blush is a liquid so it is different to get used to, but stays on nice and blends well. I use a combination of their eyeshadows, but they are such a steal at regular price $22 and they last you 3-5 months at a time. The eyeshadow is a cream to powder base so it blends nice and stays all day. I use candlelight for my base shadow, pink posey and copper rose for my lid, mocha java for my crease, and garnet on the corner. I always use a blending brush when applying the eyeshadow and make sure to blend within 2 minutes of putting a shade on or else it will stay as is. For my eyeliner, I actually love using their Onyx shadow. I use a thin brush to put it on and linked one here for you all. I use their volumizing mascara and natural concealer as well.

 

That is everything for my make up and skin care routine! Let me know if you have any questions about specific products or how to use them! Hope you all have an awesome week!
