Beauty Babble #66 Mi-Anne Mangosteen

Happy Tuesday! Todays  #beautybabble is such a fun one! Mi- Anne Chan is a beauty Writer, Video Producer, & Host, follow her @mianne.chan and watch her awesome #beautywithme episodes for entertaining beauty content. So happy to have her share some beauty details with us!

 

Let’s get to it!

 

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

M:  My favorite products change so frequently since trying new things is par for the course with my job. Right now I’m loving ColourPop’s new liquid liners. They come in a ton of fun colors like yellow, pink, and green and go on opaque in one swipe.

I love Ren’s AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum for the rough skin on the back of my arms. It’s basically a lightweight moisturizer that contains lactic acid to gently eat away at uneven skin.

As for hair, I’m obsessed with ohiibeauty ‘s Magic Hair Wand. It’s a multi-purpose clear gel that can be used on everything from eyebrows to eyelashes. I use it mainly for flyaways. It tames them in seconds and doesn’t feel crispy on.

BB: I need to try this magic wand! When you get the chance to be alone, what is your favorite thing to do for self-care?

M: Wash my hair with no one in my apartment! I know this sounds routine but now that my hair is double-processed I wash it so infrequently (once every 7 days approximately) my wash-day routine has become pretty intense. By the time my hair is approaching day seven, it’s oily, flat and just a flat-out mess so I like to really take my time in the shower. I shampoo and condition, then apply a generous amount of whatever hair mask I’m using through my mid-lengths and ends. Once that’s in I actually hop out of the shower with my mask still in and my hair tied up in a ponytail and apply a face mask (usually @ReneeRouleau’s Detox Mask or TrueBotanicals Resurfacing Moisture Mask). While the masks work their magic, I clean. I know this sounds so boring, but it’s my favorite way to unwind. I’m not the kind of person who likes to sit in a tub or take a nap, I like to putter around the house, wiping down my counters, tidying up the living room, and doing all the things I couldn’t get to during the week. This self-care moment is also best when there’s no one in the house and I’m completely alone (save for my cat), that way I can take all the time in the world to tidy up before hopping back in the shower.

 

BB: That is so relatable I too like to putter around with any kind of mask on preferable naked lol.  Here’s the third and trickiest question: If you were a food or drink what would you be?
M: Hmm probably mangosteen because it is my favorite fruit!

 

Mangosteens are awesome! I absolutely loved your answers and details. Thank you so so much for answering the questions. I love the beauty episodes and looking forward to watching more of them!
