    My "Cannot Live Without"... aka MUST-Have Products
     Since I’ve started this business, many people have asked me, “what are your favorite products?!” While I believe in all the products we carry, I do have some “tried & true” must-have favorites.
     In fact, these were some of the first products I tried that motivated me to start this business. As it was really hard to decide which items were my favorite, this blog post was becoming quite lengthy... so I decided to keep it simple & narrow it down to my top three! 
    So... without further ado, here’s my list of favorites & why:
    Sea Salt Soap
    I’ve always struggled with sensitive skin. In the winter I was plagued with patches of eczema, and in the summer I struggled with acne. After doing some research on what may help, I came across sea salt soap. I’m not going to lie, I thought to myself, “probably won’t work, it can’t be that simple.” Well, I must say, It was that simple.
    Sea salt helps balance the PH levels in my skin. While not drying out my skin, it also didn’t clog my pores. As an added bonus, when I use it to shave my legs, my skin always feels SO soft afterward. I also use it on my face. It makes my skin glow, shrinks my pores & helps prevent acne. I was shocked that after trying SO many expensive, and complicated alternatives... all I needed was a simple product to help my skin issues... who would have known?!
    Today, my face wash, body wash, and shaving cream have been replaced by ONE simple $10 soap... the original Sea Salt Soap. A classic example of going “back to the basics.” After my sea salt discovery... naturally, I thought, “what other simple alternatives are out there?!”
    Shampoo & Conditioner Bars 
    What a weird concept... Shampoo and conditioner bars?! Again, I was a skeptic when trying these bars for the first time.
    I used to have chronically dry, dull hair... in fact, my hair stylist always had to use a special treatment on my hair to prevent breakages & create shine! The first photo on this blog is a picture of myself today. I wanted to show you how well these magical bars work. I washed my hair last night with the Namaste bars (yes, I slept on my hair). As you can see, it’s shiny and smooth this morning! No gloss product, no extra oils or hairspray, and no straightener needed. No gimmicks, and no photo enhancements. 
    The “Tangello” shampoo and conditioner bars were my first love (I still love this duo, a close #2 pick within our Shampoo and conditioner collection). I was shocked at how well it lathered, and how it left my hair feeling so soft & clean! After I tried them, I passed them along to my husband, who reluctantly tested out MANY different products in the process of creating this business (bless his soul)! He RAVED about these bars... at that point, I knew we were onto something. The “Tangello” name was actually inspired by my husband’s nickname, “Gel” given to him by his friends... but that’s a whole different story! He loves these bars and refuses to use anything different now. He travels a lot for work, mostly with a carry on bag. He loves the ease of travel with these bars & the smell of course!
    Today, my #1 favorite shampoo and conditioner bar is the “Namaste Shiny” duo. The key ingredient is Moroccan Oil... it’s unbelievable how it leaves my hair shiny, soft and tamed my frizz! 
    Argan Oil 
    When I set out to create a full line of products, the intention was to create all solid based, “naked” products with no bottles. Well, I decided to make ONE exception to this rule... Hence, our Argan Oil, which was too good not to have on our website! The good news is it’s in a glass bottle which can still be recycled! :)
    This product is our one of the purest, as it contains mostly premium Moroccan oil, with a very subtle scent. If you have dry skin like I do, this product is the KEY to moisture! Argan oil is “dryer” than most oils, so it doesn’t leave oily looking residue on your skin. This is why I love using it on my face before I put my make up on. Not only do I use it on my face, but I use it all over! I don’t have to re-apply all day as the moisture stays intact for a long time.
    Here are some of the random uses of this magical oil: It works great on chapped lips, helps strengthen nails when applied to cuticles, and a small amount used at the ends of your hair will help split ends! The list goes on... I bring this handy oil with me everywhere! It’s a small bottle and travels well as an added bonus...
    There you have it, my absolute must-have items in our line of products! Don’t get me wrong, I use all our products depending on my skin’s needs, but these are my personal “staple” items I use every day!
    I must admit, I used to have a daily regiment of 10 different bottles of products... no joke. Now I rely on 4 key products: sea salt soap, shampoo & conditioner bars, and my Argan Oil... that’s it! I can’t believe it was that simple, but my skin & hair is the happiest it’s ever been! 
    Simply & do yourself a solid. 
    Love always,

      I absolutely love your products!! The first time I used the Namaste Shiny Duo I noticed such a difference in my hair. My hair is so much fuller, shinier and full of life. I’ve also eliminated so many of the styling products that I typically used in the past – no longer necessary!! And even better, my hair looks as full and shiny on day 2! So much more economical than all the expensive products I’ve been using with results that don’t even compare!! Thank you, Dyana!!!
