Welcome to August! Can you believe the hazy days of summer are coming to a close? Before we know it, leaves will begin changing colors and Redhead Season will be in full bloom. For the next few autumn months ahead, we will maintain and repair a lot of what the summer sun and heat may have done to our skin and red hair. If you want to keep your redheaded look fabulous, this month’s H2BAR Box contains items to do just that… and more!
1. Coastal Scents Sleek Silhouette Palette ($15)
Don’t let the colors in this palette intimidate you. These shades can work for just about everyone and anything… blush, contour, highlighter as well as eyeshadows and lip colors. I have actually been mixing colors to create shades and looks for different occasions. It is so convenient to have this many different shades and shimmers in one place to create a look perfect for you!
Take a look at the tutorials below to see how you can rock the shades.. even for your redhead brows:
2. H2BAR ‘Red Hair Don’t Care’ Make Up Bag ($30)
There are days you just really don’t care about much because your hair is red! Life is great. Pamper your products by keeping them safe in this cute bag.
3. Red Aspen Andi Natural-Looking Lashes ($16)
Whenever I see someone with fake lashes, I’m always envious. They look so amazing provide a fabulous look. The only problem with fake lashes is that I cannot master them at all. After trying for over 15 minutes on average, I usually give up. These lashes feel so natural – on and off! They are the perfect fullness with a great curve to them. Not to mention, the glue works great. With the tutorial, it took me only a couple of minutes to get them on perfectly. Finally… perfect fake lashes that look natural and happen without too much effort. Watch the tutorial below:

4. Juice Organics Shampoo + Conditioner + Hair Mask Packettes ($5)
Filled with the goodness of coconut, plant proteins and Vitamin B5, this set will replenish the moisture in your hair that the heat and humidity have stripped out. It hydrates your hair with organic oils and keeps it shiny with organic aloe. It leaves your hair soft and manageable after a season of damaging sun.
5. IT Hair Care ‘Freeze It’ Mega Hair Spray ($3)
It is so hard to find a good hairspray these days. There are so many on the market that all claim to do different things for different hair types. This hairspray from IT Hair Care keeps your redheaded style locked in all day regardless of the weather. Use it as a light coating to prevent frizz or a good, all-over spray to keep your tresses on lockdown for the day. Not to mention, it has UV protection to protect those easy-to-damage red locks!
6. PCA Skin Hydrator Plus Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($5)
If you are looking for a good, all-in-one product, you will certainly like this! This hydrator is a little more light weight than a standard moisturizer which makes it great for people with oily skin. It goes on easily and absorbs quickly, without leaving a greasy or shiny. A great way to block the sun’s damaging rays and get they hydration your skin needs. (PS: Sensitive skin users will love natural antioxidants like milk thistle and caffeine!)
7. Goddess Garden Organics Packettes ($3)
These little gems are perfect for the redhead who wants to prepare and protect their skin, day and night. The ‘Face the Day’ moisturizer firms skin, protects and repairs with its UV protection. If you use this during the day, you can avoid using a sunscreen, a moisturizer and a face primer as this product does all three. Save time AND your skin!
Don’t be afraid of the oily feel of the night serum. It quickly absorbs into the skin, encouraging cell turnover while you sleep. In the morning, you just wash away all the work it did. Don’t stress if you get too much of the serum on your hands. Just rub it in to keep your hands looking young too.
8. Miss Spa Chocolate Crème Mask Chocolate ($5)
Seriously, who doesn’t love chocolate! Even though you might prefer to eat this delish treat, not many people know that dark chocolate is GREAT for the skin — especially redhead skin. It contains potent antioxidants, detoxifiers, and other natural ways to keep your skin soft and glowing. This mask gives you all of these benefits while warming your face when applying—that’s the mask stimulating the blood flow in your face. Take some ‘me’ time to rejuvenate your skin and enjoy the delish scent of the mask.
Summer is winding down, and we will slowly begin to prepare for the cooler days and nights of fall. Before you start thinking about what your skin may need, think about what you need to repair first. This is the perfect time to start mending the little issues you had from the summer’s damaging sun and heat.
Redheads really do have more fun, right?! Rock it like a Redhead!
