Current mood, with easy going bottoms and soles with a little edge up top. My apologies for going MIA again - prepping and going through Coachella was a whirlwind (not that I wouldn't do it all over again if I had the chance to go again this weekend). I've got so much to share in the next few weeks, with a few more trips to boot. I've barely gotten on the Snap train, so if you're on there and want to follow, find me at "neon.blush"! Hope you're all enjoying the weekend - keep your eyes peeled for a Coachella post coming soon x

I've read it in magazines for years: how it's better to avoid over-washing your hair as it usually strips your essential oils and eventually lead to hair breakage. I'm aware it's probably a better idea to shampoo every three days (my hairstylist dropped his jaw when he found out that I'd wash my hair every night and maybe every other if I tried) but I feel like a ball of oil if I don't do it daily.

So after years (yes, plural form) of switching through countless brands and different methods of wash/rinse, I think I'm finally content with this set from Unwash. My first go with the set started with the Anti-residue Rinse, which left my hair feeling clean yet still smooth. I added on the Hydrating Masque and let it sit for five minutes and rinsed; my hair turned extremely silky and stayed that way for at least two nights.

But what steals the show is their Bio-cleansing Conditioner. Finally, there's something that I can use on the daily without damaging my hair. I'm in LOVE with this and wish it came in smaller sizes so that I could take it with me for travel. Some things to note: first, for the person with a pretty demanding schedule, this is your ticket to gaining just a little more out of your day. No need to spend extra time lathering again or washing again. I'm usually against the shampoo/conditioner combo -- more often than not, 2-in-1 products leave the hair feeling either grossly stripped or not clean enough and just overly conditioned. This one actually carries out that idea in a civilized manner and does both jobs correctly. Second, the Bio-cleasing conditioner washes the hair but moisturizes it just enough to leave some texture and dimension behind -- let the hair dry and you'll see, it achieves that undone, French-chic style once dried, too. What doesn't this thing do? In a world saturated with questionable products, I'm glad I can actually trust what Unwash claims to do.

There's something about getting older and having less energy after exhausting days and late nights out that makes it difficult to stay diligent with skin care. As I cross over to the other end of my twenties, I worry about my inconsistencies and how much more attention my skin actually needs. I've been wanting to find one effective serum that'll do the job both day and night, so that I could say I make an attempt to nourish my skin properly at least once a day.

This Original Skin renewal serum from Origins is my current favorite. It's lightweight and just as relaxing as it is invigorating, perfect for both day and night use- I'll put it on with my tea in the mornings, or as I wind down with a glass of wine at the end of the night. I love how silky the skin becomes after applying, it really feels supple and youthful for hours on end even with just one use. Thank you Origins for relieving my concerns with my quarter life crises, ha.

Beauty/skin products I got while in Tokyo - I kind of went on a whim with these purchases (amongst a sea of a hundred other products), so hopefully I made the right choice. Will report back on what I think!
