BeautyA Few of My Favorite Things…

I thought I would share with you guys my favorite new buys for each week. Most of them are beauty products and face washes (since that’s what I’m addicted to), but anything that strikes my fancy is up for game. I’ll let you know why I love each item and have added it to my routine. (P.S. I bought all these items with my own money and was not paid for my opinion)

First up – Purity Made Simple, One-Step Facial Cleanser.

There’s nothing worse than finding leftover foundation hanging out on your freshly washed face. This cleanser takes care of that, leaving you with pure, supple skin. My skin is very dry, and this does leave a slight “tightness,” but as long as you follow up with moisturizer it shouldn’t be a problem.

Number 2 – Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss Non-Dairy Dessert

My sweet tooth seems to go crazy when the weather warms up, and Coconut Bliss really hits the spot. I love that they use Agave sweetener which is gentler on your system. Plus, the coconut milk adds an unbelievable richness.

Number 3 – Maybelline Great Lash, Clear Lash and Brow Gel,

I can’t believe how long I’ve gone without this product in life! Keeping unruly brows in place is no longer an issue. I also love using this gel after regular mascara. It helps separate the lashes and add a little gloss.

Number 4 – DERMAdoctor KP Duty Body Scrub

I bought this scrub last summer and am getting it again! For those annoying dry skin bumps of the winter, this scrub kicks major butt. This is also great for creating a smooth canvas the day before a self tan.

BeautyFacial Cleanser: What Do You Use?

What to use, what to use …

Today’s product lines can be daunting in the amount of choices out there. What I want to know is what the average woman does for her basic face washing rituals? Expensive, inexpensive, medicated, herbal, or nothing it all!

I asked the girls in the warehouse what they use on their faces every day, and why they like them so much. Here were some of their responses:

Kathleen: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser“It takes off all of my make-up, and is really good for sensitive skin.”

Brittani: Garnier Skin Renew.  “I use a light soap in the shower, and this face lotion. I think it’s amazing. This lotion is the best. It makes my skin feel so soft, it’s ridiculous!”

Rachel: ProActiv.  “I usually go back to ProActiv every couple of months.”

Lindsay H.: Aveeno.

Indya: Alba Coconut Milk“It’s all-natural, organic, creamy, and it’s gentle, exfoliates and moisturizing. It’s also Earth-friendly, and I can get it at my favorite co-op.”

Siobahn: Aveeno“I don’t really pay that much attention.”

Val:  “I don’t use facial cleanser because it dries my skin out. Just water.”

Me? I’m simple. I love St. Ive’s Apricot Scrub. It’s inexpensive and exfoliating.
