Date night essentials is a popular topic in the blogosphere, and you’ve probably read plenty of these already. While I definitely have my own date night must haves that I would love to share with you some day, today I want to touch on another topic that I personally forget to think about sometimes.
Let’s say you and your bae are out on a date, and the dinner somehow turns into breakfast. Or you stayed over at a friend’s place after an awesome party. Or maybe you pulled an all-nighter at work? Here are three amazing products that will make you glow in the morning in the best #iwokeuplikethis kind of way, no Instagram filters required!
1 // I rave about this hairspray All. The. Time. and if you still haven’t tried it, you definitely should. Oribe Superfine Hair Spray [$33 for 9 oz, get more discounted Oribe here] is easily my #1 styling must-have. It’s ridiculously easy to use because the hold is buildable, all without making the hair sticky and crunchy. Yes, it’s crazy expensive, but it’s one of those beauty splurges I firmly believe in. Trust me, it’s unlike any hairspray you’ve ever used, and I tried dozens of different ones from all price ranges, including even more expensive ones. What makes it unique is how fine the spray particles are, it’s almost like a mist for your hair. I used it both for holding complicated updos in place and for creating tousled beachy waves, and it performed beautifully each time. Why do I think it’s #iwokeuplikethis essential? Because it can resurrect the blowout from the night before, or transform your bed hair into a voluminous tousled mane in a snap. I seriously love this, you guys, you so so SO need it in your life!
2 // You know what’s a dead giveaway of an all nighter? Dull skin that has an almost grayish hue to it. I know this firsthand because I always look like that after red eye flights or when I stay up late to work way past midnight. My most recent discovery Clarins Super Restorative Wake-Up Lotion [
$40 $25.89 for 4.2 oz, available here] literally wakes up my skin and gets the juices flowing, so to speak, pumping moisture into every nook and cranny and giving the cheeks a healthy flush. It comes as a runny lotiony liquid, but I never use it with a cotton round. Instead, I shake a small amount into my hands and pat it in until the liquid is absorbed. This mini-massage improves the circulation and delivers the serum’s active ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin.
3 // Don’t underestimate the power of perfume! A well-picked scent can transform your attitude and give you an instant boost of confidence. If you could smell like anything after a wild night out, why not root beer? That is exactly what Oscar de la Renta Essential Luxuries Oriental Lace Eau De Parfum Spray [
$150 $51 for 3.4 oz, available here] smells like to me, after you give it a moment to settle on the skin. A bright floriental that transforms into a crisp and fun gourmand in a matter of minutes, this well-balanced bouquet combines cacao, patchouli, wax plant, almonds, and honey in a way that makes them almost unrecognizable.
