We are talking all about beauty products today!! But before we get to that I wanted to share with you a few beauty tips that my mom taught me growing up that I want to pass down to Brookie! And I’ll sneak in a picture of me and my mom from the wedding while we are at it:
And one with my sweet dadio too.
3 Simple Beauty Tips from HRG Mom:
*A smile is by far the most beautiful thing a person can wear.
*Do your thing in the morning (ehhhh afternoons some days for me when life is crazy;) to get ready. Do your hair or your makeup or whatever routine makes you feel confident and ready to take on the day. After your time in front of the mirror, spend the rest of the day thinking about other people instead of focusing on yourself. Do the things that help you feel beautiful/healthy/confident and then get on with your day and focus on the people around you! <—— my mom is the best example of this.
*Pay close attention to your own, and others around you, strengths…. life is too short to obsess over the flaws.
Easy enough right? She is a smart lady and I’m sure lucky to have such a positive woman as my biggest role model.
PS I’m not pregnant even though Andrew is holding my stomach as though I might be;)
Over the last few years I started to really pay more attention to the different products I was using and what they contained. In my mid 20s I don’t think I even thought about that kind of stuff… but once I had Brooke and I was obsessed with what products I was using on her, I started to really look into what I was using.
Foxbrim caught my attention quickly because their products are all natural and organic skin and haircare solutions. Everything they offer is pure and all-natural ingredients which I know is extremely important to many of you reading so I was excited to tell you about them! Foxbrim sources all of their products in extremely small batches so that they are able to provide the freshest, premium product at an exceptional value.
I went through every product they offered and chose three things that I felt I really wanted to try out big time (it was hard narrowing it down because I wanted to try everything:).
It felt like Christmas morning (ehhh fyi mom, sister and sister-in-laws… your Christmas presents will probably look a little like this because I know you will love these things too:) when I opened this up because I have been so excited to try them.
PS Foxbrim is never ever tested on animals—> Beretta approves of this and so do we.
I first really wanted to try out their Argan Oil. A few of my friends that do hair have told me about the benefits of Argan oil for our hair (it is great for any type of hair too!) so I wanted to see what it would do for mine.
“Argan oil is the ingredient to renew your hair, protect it with antioxidants and infuse it with nutrients.” —> YES YES YES please. I feel as runners our hair is put through a lot with all of the elements/pollution it is exposed to when we are out on the pavement. Plus all of the ponytails and crazy snarls that occurs (I’ve had some really bad ones over the years ha) have not helped in the slightest. My hair (especially my ends) were more than ready to try this out.
With this you can put it in your hair and leave it for 10 minutes, a few hours or overnight before washing it out. I loved leaving it in overnight (and for my run in the morning) because I felt like it had plenty of time to do it’s job on my hair.
PS What do non-runners use for comfy shirts to wear around the house and at night? I use my race t-shirts for this purpose quite often:)
A little bit more about what is exactly in Foxbrim’s Argan Oil and how it repairs hair health from this plant-based formula!
I washed my hair and styled it the next morning and loved the result. It felt crazy soft and smooth. This will be my new Saturday night tradition so that I can wake up and wash out the Argan Oil for church each week. You can also add a few drops of this to your hair once it is dry to act like a styling fluid/restorative elixir!
FOXBRIM’S CASTOR OIL!!! This had me extremely excited because it is an oil that can be used for the FACE, HAIR, BODY and HANDS. The simpler the better—> I love that it is an all in one product.
I was most excited to try it out on my hands and hair but it has a long list of benefits for our daily beauty routine—> promotes hair, lash and brow growth, it helps repair split ends (yeah… I need major help with that), it enriches the texture of hair and skin, improves quality of nails, treats acne and helps with the appearance of scars.
You can leave Foxbrim’s Castor Oil in your hair (you use it on damp hair once or twice a week) for a few hours or overnight if you’d like. When you are putting this in your hair you focus on the ends!
We had a dance party to some early 90s hip hop while it was hanging out in my hair:)
I’ll keep you updated on how it helps my hair to grow and how it repairs my ends. I do know that it already helps my skin and hair to feel softer and better hydrated.
And lastly, the Vitamin C Lotion!!! Vitamin C is crazy good for your skin. I didn’t know before this but our skin can reap the benefits in other ways than just through ingesting our Vitamin C:) Using Vitamin C daily on your skin can help it to be healthier than before! Even skin tone, strengthen skin elasticity, promote cell regeneration, make skin appear more youthful and firm, lighten sun spots, even discoloration—> all benefits that can come from using Foxbrim’s Vitamin C Lotion daily. Also, there are other all-natural ingredients included in this lotion… for example, Organic Aloe Vera—> ultra-moisturizing to keep your skin hydrated and it also helps with acne and aging. Each product includes every ingredient and the amazing benefits that are provided by these natural and organic solutions!
Our skin is also exposed to all sorts of things while we are out for our runs each day and I’m all about doing whatever I can to help out my skin because I’m not quitting running anytime soon:) You better not be anytime soon either… we’re in this together, right?!
There ya have it! Three things that I’ve added to my beauty routine to help my hair, skin and nails.

Any beauty tips that your mom shared with you when you were growing up?
How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
Race t-shirts… wear them often or are they tucked away in your drawers for awhile before you see them again?
Do you like to dance?
Brooke, Knox and I sure do but Andrew wants nothing to do with dancing. He told me that in the very beginning;)
