Happy Friday/Groundhog Day! Since the groundhog saw his shadow (boo!!).... does anyone else get the mid-winter blah's?! I don't know about you but around this time each year my skin is dry and pale, my hair is dark and limp, and I start to miss my summertime glow. Sooo, for today's Friday Fix I'm sharing some of the natural beauty products I'm loving right now. They've been saving my skin and hair and keeping me feeling pampered this winter! Enjoy the weekend and take care of yourselves! Xoxo
SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Body Wash
I love this body wash! It's made of natural ingredients and feels so soft on my skin. Plus I love the subtle scent. It has shea butter, which softens the skin, frankincense and myrrh extract, which just sounds cool but also is anti-inflammatory and heals skin, and coconut oil, which is firming. Since I've started using this body wash my skin has felt a lot less dried out. BONUS: it's on sale right now at Target. Wahoo!

Burt's Bees Micellar Water
For the longest time, I've been using those Neutrogena face wipes to remove my makeup at the end of the day. But over the summer my mom introduced me to micellar water and it was amazing!! It took my makeup off so smoothly - no tugging required, like with the wipes. But I was hesitant to use it because I wasn't sure of the ingredients. That's why I was so excited when Burt's Bees released this new Micellar Water. Its ingredients are 99.5% natural, which makes me feel good, and it works so well! I love it! PS - if you like to use wipes, they also have a Burt's Bees Micellar Cleansing Towelettes.

Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture and Shine Leave-In Conditioner
When you have a long, wavy mane like I do, you need A LOT of conditioner. This leave-in spray smells amazinggggg and I use it right after I get out of the shower, before I comb out my hair. It doesn't weigh my hair down but makes it a little easier to get the comb through all my tangles. And it has natural ingredients - no parabens or artificial colors. I really can't emphasize enough how yummy it smells!
Available at Target, $9.39
Maui Moisture Nourish & Moisture + Coconut Milk Shampoo for Dry Hair
My hair gets dry and staticky during the winter and I hate it. But this shampoo has helped to make my hair a lot more manageable. It smells great, feels good, and does the job! Plus it's made of yummy natural ingredients I can actually pronounce like coconut milk, guava oil and mango butter. BONUS - it's vegan and paraben-free.
Available at Target, $8.19
Kristin Ess Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray
This spray smells really good and doesn't feel crunchy or dry out my hair like a lot of other beach wave sprays. It goes on super soft and provides a little boost of shine to my waves. It's meant to be used after you air dry or curl your hair (not before you dry like many other wave sprays). It's a nice change from the traditional salty beach wave sprays I've tried - just what my dry winter hair needs.

SheaMoisture Dragons Blood & Coffee Cherry Rebound & Revive Body Lotion
This body lotion has a soft, subtle scent that I love and it softens my skin without feeling greasy or taking forever to sink in. I also love that it has a spray nozzle at the top - it makes it so much easier to apply after my shower. Plus it's sulfate and paraben free!! Can't get enough of this stuff.
