Take a peek inside Jonna’s Ultimate Beauty Arsenal to see which of the products she has tried have become her must-have essentials.
Hair: EDEN BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi All Natural Deep Conditioner – My hair absolutely loves this deep conditioner and I love that it’s full of all natural ingredients. Because it works so well, is only $9.99 for a 16oz jar, and I can easily get my hands on it at Wal-Mart, Walgreens or Sally Beauty, I can use it regularly without breaking the bank.
Tresemme Naturals Moisturizing Conditioner – With tightly curled and coiled natural hair, a conditioner with slip is crucial for detangling your hair. This conditioner has amazing slip and for the price you can’t beat it. I always keep a bottle on hand.
Makeup: NYX AUTO Eyebrow Pencil – Nothing makes my face look complete like shaped and filled in brows. This brow pencil is reasonably priced, easy to find, and doesn’t need to be sharpened. It also has an eyebrow brush attached so it’s perfect.
Covergirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara – Volume and length in one mascara. Reasonable prices and easy to find, this is a go-to mascara for me. I can apply one coat for everyday, but it’s also buildable for more dramatic looks without applying falsies.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – This concealer covers and camouflages my acne blemishes, under eye circles and skin redness. No matter what foundation I use, I still use this concealer.
Skin care: Naokeidoe Creations ‘The Balm’ lip balm – This lip balm is all natural and very moisturizing. The scents are amazing as well. My lips dry out quickly so I always make sure I have one of my many Naokeidoe Creations lip balms when I leave the house.
BNude Essentials Whipped Shea Body Butter – This body butter is made with all natural ingredients and is whipped to perfection. The scents are amazing and long lasting, and it leaves my skin smooth and moisturized all day long.
Nails: Wet N Wild MegaLast nail polish in ‘Private Viewing’ – I love this nude polish. Its lasts a tad bit longer than most polishes, and even when it starts to fade, it’s hard to tell because of the color–which I like.
Sally Hansen Insta-Grip Fast Dry Base Coat and Insta-Dri Anti-chip Top Coat – This is a dynamic duo for me to give my nail polish a nice base and a shiny finish. Both dry quickly so you can paint your nails and get on with your day faster without worrying about messing up your mani.
Fragrance: Carols’s Daughter Almond Cookie – I’m a sucker for fragrances that smell like sweet treats. This fragrance smells just like a batch of almond cookies, and a little goes along way and lasts all day, especially when used with the body lotion.
Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia – I love light floral scents, and the gardenia is one of my favorites.
Beauty Indulgence: Massage – When I want to really treat myself, a full body massage is number one on my list. Massages reduce stress, relieve tension and improve circulation which all help to improve the skin.
