I’ve been told a few times that I’m somewhat high maintenance. Uh, you say that like it’s a bad thing? I just like being well put together and presentable as much as possible. (I actually think that’s one of the things my hubby likes about me lol) So…I won’t take it as an insult but as a compliment.

Hopefully I’ve peaked your interest into what my favorite ‘high maintenance’ must-haves are.

So without further ado, in no particular order, here they are!

Olaplex Hair Perfector



This stuff has quite possibly changed the life of my hair F.O.R.E.V.E.R. It says to use once a week but I’ve always been a rebel at heart and I use this probably twice a week. This make my hair feel like actual HAIR. For those of you who don’t know me, my hair is a CrAzY, WILD, FriZZY, dry mess! (my husband claims he loves my ‘wild’ morning hair…HA!) I seriously could not LIVE without this stuff. The only downside is that it comes in a fairly small bottle with a somewhat large price tag (don’t get too scared, if I can bite the bullet on this bad boy so can you, trust me, it’s WORTH EVERY PENNY) Check it out here or talk to your hair care professional.

Aussie Sprunch

Aussie Sprunch

Make sure you get the SPRAY not the aerosol!

Next up, also in the hair care line is this awesome hair spray from Aussie. It’s called Sprunch. I’ll just admit that I’m actually not super big on hairspray and only use it to hold my loose beach waves in place. But this stuff is amazing. It gives great hold without holding my hair down or making it feel sticky. Word of advice…do NOT get the aerosol can, it’s just not as good and does not meet my high maintenance standards.

Cover Girl Clean Makeup Remover

CG Makeup Remover

You can find this almost anywhere Cover Girl is sold.

Let’s move on to the face! I’ve searched for years high and low for a good makeup remover that doesn’t leave my face feeling oily or dry. My mom actually introduced me to this Cover Girl makeup remover. It easily removes makeup while still leaving my eyelashes in tack (win) and doesn’t leave my face feeling oily, sticky or dry. It’s definitely a must for every high-maintenance, makeup-wearing girl.

Almay Clear Complexion Concealer

Dark Circles? Not anymore!

Next up, also in the makeup line, is this fabulous concealer from Almay. For all you moms out there the appearance of dark circles under your eyes appears far more often than you’d like it to (can I  just say I MISS my sleep!) This concealer is great! It covers those dark circles without being oily, dry or flaky. It’s perfect! And who says you need a high end concealer for $100 anyway? I’m high maintenance not RICH! I just pick mine up at Walmart or occasionally Walgreens if they are having a good sale on it.

Melaleuca Foot Lotion

Melaleuca Foot Lotion

Not only does it work great, it SMELLS great too!

With summer just around the corner (YAY!) this last product is a MUST. The Melaleuca Foot Lotion. I apply this stuff after every shower to keep my feet (especially heels) smooth and sandal ready! The peppermint in this also helps soothe tired, achy feet. Again, another product I could not live without. I always have an extra bottle on hand. If you’ve never heard of Melaleuca check them out! They have TONS of awesome products.

These are just a FEW of my favorite, fabulous, high maintenance, beauty products. Hope I’ve inspired you to try a few!
