Friday Features – COSRX and OUAI New Products…For You and Your Furry Friend
July 6, 2018
Between COSRX and OUAI announcing new products this week, you and your dog can have healthier skin!
Is anyone else feeling off after a random Wednesday away from work? I mean I could totally do the whole work 2 days, take a break, work 2 days, get a weekend deal. But, I no longer know what day of the week it is LOL! Anyways, this Friday Features is a little all over the place. But, here are a few highlights that caught my eye (peep those new items from COSRX and OUAI):
Feature 1: Instagrammer – Monique from Ambitious Kitchen
Monique is an influencer/blogger/chef/recipe creator/etc and created the brand and website Ambitious Kitchen. My mom sent me one of her Instagram posts a few months ago with a recipe I would love, and I’ve been following her ever since. While she does create really great and healthy recipes, that isn’t why I love her. She is a huge advocate for self-love/care. Monique is very open about her past unhealthy relationship with food and exercise (something I have also experienced) in many posts. She is so honest and promotes healthy relationships, self-care, and to never be hard on yourself for enjoying life. In a world full of bullying, trying to tear people down, and be better than everyone, Monique builds people up and never judges anyone. My mom has even said Monique is one of her favorite people on Instagram for these very same reasons. Check out some of her posts below (be sure to click on the photo so you can read her captions!):
Feature 2: OUAI’s Latest Hair Product – Pet Shampoo
Many people know OUAI as a luxury hair care brand that is very popular for their sulfate-free, keratin rich products (especially their dry shampoo!). Well, OUAI is entering an extended market of the hair care world and releasing a new Pet Shampoo. According to OUAI’s site, this shampoo can be used on all animals (even pigs!). It’s free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and uses ingredients such as apple cider vinegar (antibacterial), aloe leaf juice (soothe skin), and tamarind seed extract (moisture) to keep your pet’s skin and fur the healthiest it can be! It sounds like this Pet Shampoo will be limited edition, so you may wanna grab it while you can. And, better yet, they will be donating 15% of all proceeds to the Vanderpump Dog Foundation. OUAI Pet Shampoo will be on the market soon selling for $28. For more information and FAQ, click HERE!
Feature 3: COSRX and Amazon Prime Exclusive – Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream
If you’ve ever seen my Instagram feed or visited my blog before, you know I LOVE the Korean Skincare brand COSRX. They use quality, skin-loving, effective ingredients in all of their products, and they’re super affordable! I’ve written many reviews on their products which you can find a couple Here and Here. A few days ago, COSRX announced a collaboration exclusively for Amazon Prime Members. You better believe I was all over that. They released a Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream which works as a moisturizer. It soothes inflamed, irritated skin while also “protecting the skin barrier”. The key ingredients that make this product effective are Ceramide NP, Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, and Centella Asiatica Medical Grade Extract. I have combination, sensitive skin, so this product sounds perfect for me. It should be arriving in the mail today. So I’ll test it out for a couple of weeks and let y’all know how I like it soon! If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can purchase this product HERE for $26.
Feature 4: Book Release – Influencer: Building Your Personal Brand in the Age of Social Media
Whether you’re an influencer, Instagrammer, or just post a few pictures, the majority of us are on social media. As I have a new blog and Instagram, it’s safe to say I’m trying to build my personal brand. But the problem is, how exactly do I do that and not get lost in the sea of everyone else? The constant change of the Instagram algorithm and trends make it so difficult to keep up and stay relevant. Enter Brittany Hennessy’s new book “Influencer: Building Your Personal Brand in the Age of Social Media”. Brittany Hennessy helps you to figure out the way to get your voice heard through content, hashtags, metrics, and so many other strategies. I’ve struggles so much with exactly those problems, so I will most definitely be picking up this book. It will be released on July 31st and you can pre-order it from AMAZON.
Do you have any new products that you’re looking forward to? Personally, the COSRX product is definitely my most anticipated!
