The Bed Head Wave Artist is my new favorite hair gadget. It’s quick and easy to use, even for someone who isn’t skilled at styling their own hair. I love that my waves stay in place for the next day for a softer look. Stacy Brooks

PIXNOR Facial Cleansing Brush

This has helped clarify my skin 100%. It has so many options for brushes and the quality is sturdy and reliable. I noticed an instant difference with my skin care routine when I started using it. One of my favorite gift ideas! Alyssa Tangney

Deciniee Jade Roller and Gua Sha Tools Set

This massages and wakes up the blood circulation in your face, helps anti-aging and firmness but through a natural, non-chemical approach. It comes with roller and gua sha as an additional option in a pretty box. I love the feeling of the cold stone on my face—it wakes it up and gives it a natural color/glow. —Tum Keen

With hand washing all the rage, a great hand cream is this season’s must have. This refreshing and all natural essential oil lotion is not only affordable, but relieves one of dry hands very quickly. Sabrina French

Ziya Soul Base Coat

There are a trillion skin care brands online, but I am trying to shop small business as much as possible (this is also a Black-owned business)! I love the base coat because I am perpetually dry everywhere. This oil can be used for both skin and hair, which for us naturally coily girls is a must. Erica Saville
These lip colors are like tinted chapstick with a boost of strong color. I love them for sitting on Zoom calls all day. They won’t dry out my lips and they come in multiple fun colors! Tina Sreniawski
My signature fragrance. The story of how this one was created truly made me fall in love with it. There is so much history to it. The packaging is beautiful and it’s such a unique line. Something different than what other people use! Alyssa Tangney

Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment

I love Sunday Riley Good Genes! It does not irritate my sensitive skin and feels really nice. I even think it actually does plump my fine lines. I’ve been using it since early September and swear my skin looks brighter and less sun damaged. Sarah Fuller
My hair is wild and wacky but this is my lifeline. —Kelsey O’Neill Hogan
I am absolutely obsessed with their purple shampoo and conditioner and their moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. I lightened my hair in August and my hair is naturally dark brown with orange undertones. I use the purple shampoo every 2-3 weeks and it helps revive and brighten the blonde in my hair and cut the brassiness. In between uses, I use their moisturizing shampoo and I also love it! It leaves my hair soft and both the moisturizing and purple shampoo and conditioners smell AMAZING! They smell like the beach/summer. Paige Martinek

Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops

Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops are my favorite, they give me a sun kissed glow all year round. Apply after showering with your favorite lotion and six hours later you have a tan that lasts all week. Not only does it give you a natural glow, your skin feels refreshed and hydrated as well. (Be sure to select the color that’s right for you!) —Kara Rae

Melaleuca’s SeiBella Honey & Rose Skin Care System

My absolute FAVORITE is the SeiBella Honey & Rose Skin Care System for sensitive skin. Changed. My. Life. Seriously. Se’Fana Samples

Pattern Curly Hair Set

I also love Pattern brand by Tracey Ellis Ross for naturally curly hair (seriously luxe!!) Se’Fana Samples

Clinique Moisture Surge Products

I’m in love with the whole line of Clinique Moisture Surge. The products are so lightweight and scent-free so you don’t even realize you’re wearing it. Keeps your skin soft and hydrated all day long! Katie Goncalves

Face Halo Makeup Remover Pads

These are a part of my daily beauty routine, whether I am wearing makeup or not! They make my skin feel so clean and are gentle on the sensitive areas like my eyes. They’ve saved me so much money in makeup remover wipes and they are so much better for the environment and cruelty-free! Sofia Nyland

Here at Detroit Mom, I am surrounded by an awesome community of women who have helped me find a place where I feel I truly belong. I’m a proud foodie who keeps crazy busy with cooking and canning, gardening, decorating, craft projects, and more. My husband of 19 years is Jason, and we have Gwenna, 11, and Larson, 7, as well as a silver Lab named Indy. We have lived in New Hudson for almost four years now. Mid Michigan is home for me, but after my husband graduated college, we spent 16 years moving around his home state of Indiana. Just prior to moving back to Michigan, we lived in Southern California for three years, exploring and extreme-adventuring with our kids to every beautiful outdoor location we could find. We are the family that spends more weekends away than at home, and our kids are master-level road-trippers. Most of our summers are spent at the lake, where I'm convinced it's not a proper summer without a dip in the water every day from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Reach out and say hi sometime!
