In the beauty world, when can we say that enough is enough? Beauty routines can go on for 12 steps with an arsenal of products that must be placed in a certain order and amount to work. Throw in some luxury candles and soft music, and you’ve got a full-on ritual that will invoke the gods.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, another launch will surprise you. A primer to put on before your mask or a spray to make your perfume last longer. Yes, these are out there to purchase. In that odd moment you suddenly transition from “Do I need this?” to “I never thought I needed this in my life.”
When you’re sick of faux-fruity smell of your run-of-the-mill shampoo or if your dry shampoo still can’t quite get rid of the smell of a long day, use the label m. Hair Perfume from Toni & Guy. Infused with citrus blossom and white floral, it will also nourish your hair with argan oil while leaving it smelling fresh.
