Beauty Crown Awards Week 1 - Personal Care Items

The Beauty Crown Awards are a yearly favorites collaborative effort including beauty bloggers around the globe. The Beauty Crown Awards were created by Lily from Beauty with Lily Liz from My Pretty Obsessions, Jackie from Five Two Certified, and Shalunya from Shalunya & Boyet. The Beauty Crown Awards are a 5 week event with each week covering types of products.

Week 1 of the Beauty Crown Awards covers Personal Care Items. Below are my Week 1 Selections:


Shampoo & Conditioner
Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner
These are very $$$ but worth every penny.  If I have them on hand, I actually only use them on special occasion days because they are so expensive.  I haven't found any other brand of shampoo/conditioner that has impressed me.  Also, these smell like a heavenly garden.


Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray
I've tried many hairspray brands and this is still my fave.  I wouldn't say it gives a "touchable" finish but it holds well and that's all I care about.  Also, it's cheap.

 Styling Product
Moroccanoil® Treatment 
Another spendy product but worth every penny.  The scent is so pretty but most importantly it tames my damaged hair.  Again, I only use this on special occasion hair days.

Hair Mask

I only ever use hair masks in the shower and I don't keep them on for the full amount of time recommended.  Also, they usually suggest using it on "damp" hair.  Sorry, but I'm not about to shampoo my hair, get out of the shower to towel dry my hair, put on a hair mask for 10mins then get back in the shower to rinse off.


Body Mist
Angels Heavenly Angel Mist

Victoria's Secret Deam Angels Heavenly
This is more of a perfume but it feels misty to me.  It's old-school VS but I still love it.

Juicy Couture - Juicy Couture
Juicy Couture
This is their original perfume and I've loved it for years.

SKIN CARE (Non-Facial)

Body Wash
Wild Honeysuckle Shower Gel - Signature Collection - Bath & Body Works
I don't have a favorite body wash but I've been using the ones from Bath and Body Works for years mostly because they smell great. 

Bar Soap
Dove White Travel Size Bar Soap with Moisturizing Lotion, 2.6 oz, 36 Bars (DRACB126811)
I like this plain soap if I had to use bar soap.

Body Scrub
Sensual - Black Currant Vanilla Sugar Scrub - Aromatherapy - Bath & Body Works
 I've used all kinds of body scrubs and honestly can't tell the difference between them except for scent.  Again, Bath and Body Works always has the best scents.

Bio-Oil USA home

I think that body moisturizers are a dime a dozen.  I use a scented one every morning all over and it's either from Bath and Body Work or Victoria's Secret.  However, my choice for my fave moisturizer is Bio-Oil because of its healing qualities.  It works great for scars and for keratosis pilaris.

Hair Removal
Schick Intuition Razor
I like this razor because you don't have to use a separate shave gel due to the solid skin conditioning block at the top of it.  It's perfect for travel.

So those are my picks for my fave personal care items.  If you're interested in joining us, click the link below.  And don't forget to see what the other amazing ladies in this group chose for their faves by clicking their links below!


  1. MoroccanOil does smell really good. I however can not use anything like this has my hair is very oily and this just makes the situation worse. VS Heavenly is such a sexy scent. I wore nothing else for two years straight when I discovered it back in 2004. B&B works aromatherapy line is quite good I like energy for the shower and the sleep lotions.

    1. That's a bummer that you can't use the Moroccanoil products. But yeah, I once used too much and I looked like a homeless person b/c my hair was so greasy looking lol!

      Yup, I've had my bottle of Heavenly for YEARS and I also have tons of sample sizes. Love it. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I have seen that Moroccan line at a few different salons and always wondered if it was any good...Thanks for the recommendation!

    1. Yeah, def. try it if you can! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Ahhh, I love VS Heavenly, I owned it years ago...I need that back in my life!!

    Great picks love!!


    1. I wonder if VS will have a a nice box set on sale?!?!

  4. I love the VS Heavenly scents. A few yeaars ago they had Heavenly Starlight which I fell in love with. I still have about half a bottle left and I don't know what I will do when it's gone because I know it was limited edition. I love Moroccan Oil products but my wallet doesn't. Bio Oil is another great one too!! Fab picks! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Oh, I remember having a sample of Heavenly Starlight and it was just lovely! Yes, Moroccanoil is sooooo expensive but that's why I only use it on days when I know I have plans later. :)

  13. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Moroccan Oil too! I also save it for special hair days, as it is a little pricey. But, this is a good alternative for all of the other not so special days: Give it a try!
