I was recently thinking about which beauty products I've grown attached to, and which I could just leave flying in the wind.
Every girl (and most guys) has some sort of beauty ritual and a few products they absolutely can't live without. Like I'm obsessive about washing my face, after being told by an agent years back that the worst thing for your skin is (leaving make up on and ) not washing your face. Since then I've been an obsessive face washer, even though every now and again I'll forget to take all my eye make up off and be a raccoon (as my husband calls it) .
Here are a few of my favorite things....
Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer Sensitive Skin - I've been using this since I was pregnant because my skin was ultra sensitive (and still is) . It's so light weight that you forget you put it on, plus it doesn't get greasy.
It's perfect under make-up or just on it's own, I love it. I recently spotted it at babies'r'us on sale for $1.99 and I couldn't resist stocking up.
Aveeno Baby Sunscreen - This SPF 55 is great (if it's good enough for Aiden, it's sure good enough for me) I just slather this on when I hit the pool or beach and I never burn, nor do I have to reapply it. It's formula like Neutrogena's moisturizer is light weight and greaseless, and absorbs quickly so you don't have to wait around for what seems like hours to take a dip. Now-a-days everyone is (hopefully) taking more precautions when it comes to UV protection not only for putting a hault on advanced aging, but also for all the damage the harmful rays can do.
L'Oreal Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foudation SPF 19 - This has been in my make-up bag rotating with clinique for atleast the past 4 years. I love that it's weightless and natural looking. Another plus is that the coverage is great, and you can gradually reapply until you reach your desired coverage. Plus it's under $15, and most the time I can find a BOGO deal at drugstores, ULTA, or Kmart.
Cover Girl Eye Enhancers 3 Kit Shadow in Shimmering Sands - I've been using this since I started wearing make up in high school (it's that old). And this hands down has been the most reliable eye shadow I have ever used, and that's saying a lot because I've just about used all of them. The trio comes in beautifully pigmented shades of tans and browns that makes eyes pop. It's perfect for a pretty everyday look, or a for a sexy smokey look for a night on the town. It's a steal for under $5.
Almay Oil-Free Eye Make Up Remover Pads - These are perfect for those nights when you just want to skip washing your face and just crawl into bed. They do the trick in one pad and leave your eyes refreshed, not dry and irritated. I personally am all for the oil-free because the moisturizing tends to leave an unwanted (moisturizing) film.
Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely - Not only am I a huge SJP fan, I love her fragrances too. Lovely has notes of fragrance including amber, lavender, orchid , musk and apple making an all together 'lovely' scent that lasts all day. It's an over all mood booster and frequently gets compliments.
Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm - made from pomegrante oil's antioxidant goodness leaving your lips soft and replenished, and kissable. An added plus is that the pomegrante give your lips a touch of red for a little added color to your day.
Maybelline Great Lash ( in the Pink and Green Tube) Mascara - An all time classic used by make up artists from the catwalks to the covers of Vogue. Everyone knows what your talking about when you mention the pink and green mascara with it's long lasting and clump free wear, enough said.
Cover Girl Cheekers in Pretty Peach 150 - Gives you that added glow for girls on the go. It's portable and goes on satiny smooth for that gorgeous flush look we all want.
Sephora Fresh Gloss - has a refreshing burst of mint that freshens your breath making your lips literally kissable!
Do you use any of these?
