There is something incredibly beautiful about autumn and part of the beauty is how a redhead’s hair mimics the leaves and overall scenery. That’s why fall is the season of the redhead!
It is also the time that us redheads need to pay attention to changes with our skin, hair, and nails. This month’s H2BAR Box gave us everything we need. Let’s say it together: Happy Fall!
1.YASOU Hydrating Body Cream, $10
If you are looking for a way to nourish your mind, body and soul, this is a great way to start. Filled with organic oils and botanicals, this moisturizer is aroma free and conditions redhead skin with natural and organic ingredients. Not only does it leave your skin silky smooth but it also doesn’t conflict with your fragrance of choice!
2. Dadi Scrub Hand and Body Scrub, $10
As the temperatures get cooler, it is only natural for our skin to get drier. It is important we exfoliate away the dead dry skin to let the younger, healthy skin come to the surface. This scrub is especially good to use as a pre-manicure treatment for hands and for super rough areas like elbows and heels. Natural exfoliants like salt and sugar are mixed with moisturizing oils to help keep these problem areas smooth and soft.
How to use tip: Mix a capful of the scrub to your favorite shower gel for a one-step body pampering treatment.
3. Hempz Triple Moisture Herbal Body Moisturizer, $6
This whipped body cream is packed with 100% pure natural hemp seed oil enriched yangu oil and anti-aging apple fruit extract. It keeps your skin hydrated with deep 24-hour moisturization while stimulating your senses with a wonderful scent of peach and grapefruit. This non-greasy, vegan moisturizer is a plus in anyone’s beauty routine.
4. Seed Phytonutrients Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner, $10
Hair tends to change its personality when the summer ends. Indoor heat and cooler weather can dry hair out, causing the ends to split and become frizzy. This shampoo is free of any harsh chemicals or sulfates, but is packed with nourishing oils, vitamins and minerals. The shampoo and conditioner will keep your hair smelling fresh like orange flowers while keeping it smooth and shiny.
5. ABBA Complete All-In-One Leave-In Spray, $10
More people are choosing to let their hair air-dry nowadays; trying to avoid damage from hot hair dryers and styling products. If you happen to be one of those who just cannot bypass the dryer or the flat iron, use this product first! Filled with conditioning Abyssinian, Coconut and Watermelon Seed oils, this delicious smelling leave-in spray takes your hair to a whole new level. You will see a change in the shine, softness and strength of your hair almost immediately.
See How to be a Redhead’s co-founder, Adrienne, talk about how she keeps her hair long and thick — and she talks about this Abba product too!
6. Medusa’s Makeup Witch Lash Mascara, $12
It wouldn’t be October without our share of ghost and goblins, and a “witch mascara” seems perfectly fitting. The cruelty-free, vegan mascara comes equipped with a super full brush to give your lashes a thick, full, even coat. The deep black color makes even simple eye looks pop. Don’t worry about fall out either. This mascara was built for all-day, steady wear. Now available in the H2BAR shop!
How to use tip: Redheads can be very sensitive to waterproof mascara! Use a gentle alcohol-free makeup remover or a great DIY removal tip is to gently use olive oil.
7. Dermala Cleanse With Benefits AM/PM Cleanser, $5
When redheads are dealing with an acne breakout, it can be so difficult to find the proper skincare that doesn’t irritate our face. Washing with the wrong cleanser can even make it worse! This cleanser is perfect for both day and night, gently removing makeup, dirt and oil. Its gentle formula won’t dry out your skin either. Not only does it contain bacteria-fighting ingredients to help reduce acne breakouts, but it also contains vitamins to give you a glowing complexion while plumping the skin.
8. Gelmersea Orchid Serum Toner, $5
Like most redheads, I have very sensitive skin. There are some ingredients that I can see listed on a product and know immediately I will not be able to use it. This leave-on toner/serum is one multi-purpose product that I enjoy using! The alcohol-free formula is filled with the power of botanicals: toning orchid, peony, daffodil and wild yam extracts. The scent is gentle, relaxing and totally natural. Your face will feel soft and will be prepped for the products you apply after.
9. Paul Mitchell Neon Sugar Cleanse Shampoo & Conditioner, $21
Paul Mitchell never leaves us disappointed. This is a great shampoo that helps cleanse out daily dirt and build-up while smelling oh, so sweet. The conditioner is a gentle, lightweight formula that softens, detangles and fights frizz all at the same time. Oh, and by the way, it is color-safe for those of you who are an “enhanced” redhead or a redhead-by-choice.
You will certainly love the results of these sweet products. Keep looking and feeling fabulous. Rock it like a Redhead!
