On to some questions!


BB: Tell me, what are your all-time favorite beauty products for face, body, and hair?

D: Oh man, coming out the gate with the hardest question in my life as a self-proclaimed beauty addict. Two products instantly come to mind– Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 1970. Acid exfoliation has changed my skin over the years, and this is the one I keep going back to. I also can’t live without May Lindstrom’s Blue Cocoon. This is a newer obsession, but it reached holy grail status quickly for its hydrating and healing properties.Image result for Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 1970.

For the body, I am obsessed with body oils. The Kjaer Weis body oil is a favorite, along with Caudalie the Divine Oil. They’re both lightweight oils that are hydrating but sink in immediately.

For hair, I have two products I can’t live without. The Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Shampoo is perfection. It gets rid of all product buildup (hello, 5 lbs of dry shampoo), but isn’t stripping. It leaves my hair clean and hydrated, and my scalp happy. I also love Kristin Ess’ entire line, but her dry shampoo is hands down the best I’ve ever tried– so much volume!

BB: Love all of it especially the divine oil that stuff smells like luxury! When you get the chance to be alone, what is your favorite thing to do for self-care?

D: When I am alone, I like to do a lengthy skin care routine, usually involved a facial massage with my gua sha and multiple masks. Sometimes I even mix my own masks. I will also play some music or catch up on my favorite podcasts, usually beauty related. There is nothing more soothing to me than a 12+ step skincare routine! and really taking my time with no distractions, just me and my skincare.


BB: Nothing like a 12+ step skincare regime to keep me centered:) seriously though it’s the best! Here’s the third and trickiest question: If you were a food or drink what would you be?
D: This might actually be harder than the first question. I’m going to go with an Oyster, which may seem a bit odd, but hear me out. I’m from the northeast, so not only are oysters on the half shell one of my absolute favorite foods, but it reminds me of home (I now live in Dallas), and summers in New England are like nothing else on the planet. They also symbolize beauty (from the pearl that many oysters produce), and strength (have you ever tried to open an oyster without a shucking knife?). I also have always been a fan of the Shakespearean proverb “the world’s mine oyster” meaning, the world is your oyster and you can do or have anything you want– if you have the right mindset and put in the work.


What amazing and descriptive answers! I absolutely love your food choice and the reason you chose it! Thank you so much, Devan, can’t wait to see more of your beauty posts!
