I usually don’t give a full run down of all the products I am using like I do with my Babes. But I’ve been traveling so much this summer — in fact, it’s my first full week back in Stockholm in a month — and I’ll be off again this weekend. Being away from home so much has allowed me to perfect the art of sifting through which products are essential and which to leave at home. Alas: here is my fully-tested, must-have list of beauty picks for any long summer weekend.
I didn’t NEED to travel to Stockholm to fall in love with Swedish brand SACHAJUAN, but c’est la vie. Because although I recognized their products back in New York, it wasn’t until I arrived in Sweden — and after a week of using Head and Shoulders — that I was inspired to try it out. In Stockholm, SACHAJUAN is everywhere, and now I understand why. After examining (and smelling) every one of their bottles at Åhlens, I settled on their most basic Shampoo for Normal Hair. It smells and works amazing especially as a clarifying shampoo that won’t weigh your hair down. The line is based around “ocean silk technology,” which adds shine to your locks while keeping them bouncy by utilizing key proteins found in sea algae extract. My favorite summer find in Stockholm so far.
