Products and services we swear by and can’t live without. Bury us with R+Co Badlands, we say. At least our hair would live on in infamy. We’ve tried each and every one of these gems so you can trust us when we tell you they’re worth the money.
R+Co “Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste” $28 – We instantly fell in love with the incredible texture and volume it created in limp, flat hair. We love the super messy Kate Hudson a la Almost Famous look, so this product is magic. It works great for anyone needing more “oompf”! If you’re rocking a pixie cut, try putting it in wet for rockstar level texture, but if your hair is long stick to applying on dry hair only.
Nether Region Waxing – It’s terrifying at first. If you like a “less is more” approach with the hair on your lady bits and are so sick and tired of shaving irritation, give this a try! We were super skeptical and scared, but now are addicted. With continued use the hair that comes back is less and less. Long lasting smoothness while stunting future hair growth, that’s a win in our book. Trusted Skin Superhero Tiffany Irons is our #1 choice, but we’d love to hear your favorite esthetician recommendations, so throw us their info!
Control Top Pantyhose – We strive to look like we are far more together in our lives than we actually are, and pantyhose helps. We weren’t about the saggy crotch struggles that came with traditional pantyhose, but now we swear by control tops. Not only do they conceal the cheeseburger you may have had for breakfast and prevent spider veins, but the control top grip ensures they stay in place all day! Our favorites are at JCPenney and Target!
L’Occitane “Shea Butter Lip Balm” $8 – This lip balm saves our lips from all the torture we put them through. We adore matte lipsticks, but with that love comes dry flaky lips. This balm is 10% shea butter! Put it on every night before bed and your luscious lips will be soft and smoochable always.

Urban Decay “All Nighter Setting Spray” $31 – When going nonstop beyond dawn til dusk, your face needs to stay fab all day. Reapplying throughout the day and constantly checking to make sure your face isn’t an oily mess is not for us. Spritz this on top of freshly applied makeup and take on the world! When you’re facing an exceptionally long day, or have extra oily skin, spray before the makeup application too!
Zenni Optical – We love having an array of funky and fabulous glasses to complement whichever character we want to be that day, and Zenni makes it possible. They have prescription eyeglasses starting at $6.95. You read that right, it’s stupid cheap. Get your prescription info from your doctor and go nuts!
Celeb Luxury Vital Shampoo and Gem Lites Shampoo – We are obsessed with fashion hair color. We’ve had pink, violet, blue, orange, green, and plenty of others, and the upkeep can be exhausting. These magical shampoos deposit color, and the color gets bolder and stronger with continued use! Hair needs to be pre-lightened, or naturally super blonde to work. Use it every other wash to maintain the color, and definitely use a super loving conditioner with it! Find a salon to purchase here!
Hair oils are a hugely important part of any hair care routine. Using an oil for your correct hair type detangles, controls frizz, provides nourishment with vitamins and proteins, leaves hair soft and shiny, and protects your strands from UV damage. Here’s our recommendations:
- Fine hair: Davines “Oi All in One Milk” $32
- Fine to Medium hair: Macadamia “Healing Oil Spray” $29.50
- Medium hair: Oribe “Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil” $52
- Medium to Coarse hair: R + Co “Tinsel” $24
- Coarse hair: Moroccanoil “Treatment Original” $44
Bota Box Wine – Here’s the deal, we love a bargain almost as much as we love wine. Box wine has always been the handy and thrifty way to go, but Franzia is just not good. Bota Box comes in to save the day! Better wine with an actual selection of red wine varieties. Get your portable and practical drink on!
Sheet Masks – It’s no secret to anyone who’s friends with us on SnapChat how much we love sheet masks. There are endless options for all skin needs, and skin will never look as good as it does after a Peach and Lily sheet mask. Glow on, babes.
