No Loyalty

Correction: I am a loyal person, I just have no brand loyalty.

Every time I buy shampoo, or shaving cream, nail polish or body wash I try something new.
"Oh! Look, mango and papaya with moisturizing beads!"
"A matte dark brown nail polish! I need this! Hmm, think it's worth $18?"

And, as embarrassing as it was to type - I seriously think those things when deciding which beauty product I want to try next.

Wandering the aisles of Target or Sephora is seriously so much fun for me. (Although it drives Homeboy crazy.) He is a one brand only kind of guy - Axe body wash and shampoo. Boring.

Someone told me once to alternate a salon brand shampoo/conditioner with a cheap one from Target. And although I cannot tell you who shared this advice, I still stand by this rule. Hair care professionals, is this legit?

Because I'm always game for a beauty experiment, what are your favorite brands? Please share in the comments below.

And because we're talking about "beauty secrets" today. I'll share one of my favorites with you - Murad.


I am a faithful, loyal user of the Murad Acne line. I wouldn't say I have bad acne at all, but I do tend to break out around my chin and nose a few times a month. I use all four of the products featured above - every single day, even when I travel.
  1. Clarifying Cleanser
  2. Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel
  3. Acne Spot Treatment
  4. Skin Perfecting Lotion
I have purchased it online from Murad directly. But I usually prefer to buy Murad products from Sephora, and gaze (drool) at all of the other stuff in their store or online. I love make-up and nail polish and being girly. Sadly, my usual daily companion, Cougar, doesn't care one way or the other.

Until next time,
Robin
