I'm not glowing, people. My hair is not thicker and my skin is not luminescent since getting knocked up. It's a tad irritating as I kind of thought great hair and skin were some of the few perks I would enjoy this pregnancy. I didn't suffer through roughly four months of constant nausea and queasiness and vomiting—and OTHER afflictions I'm totally sparing you the details of—only to now be faced with dry, NON-GLOWING skin and, honestly, kind of flat hair. I need some product suggestions to get me through the winter and the last half of this pregnancy.
So, I'm turning to you. First, I need suggestions for a cleanser and moisturizer. (Note: I've used Philosophy's Hope in a Jar, and I like it well enough, but I don't think it's giving me the coverage I really need here; same for Kiehl's Facial Moisturizer.)
I also need suggestions for a great shampoo/conditioner combo or, really, just a great hair mask that can restore some life to my locks.
Ages ago I asked for some product suggestions and made a running list of things I should check out, but I think my face/hair have changed since then AND NOT FOR THE BETTER LIKE I WAS ASSURED THEY WOULD, so I'm doing the begging and pleading again.
Since we're at it, some great make-up suggestions to cover the non-glowing, death-warmed-over face I've got going for me these days?
Advance thanks from me and my husband.
Just a want-to-share aside: on this post the other day, Betsy commented that she has a connection with a cosmetologist who gives her OPI products at a can't-beat rate, and she offered to help me find the shades I was lusting after. This, RIGHT THERE, is why I love the Internet so damn much. Just when I think the world is cracking down the middle, with all the good will and kindness being sucked dry by the economy woes and political craziness, someone goes and does something so SELFLESS and so NICE that I'm floored. Just floored. Thanks, Betsy, for the gracious offer.
