As we bid adieu to another year, I wanted to share with you some of the little things I discovered over the past year that made my life a little better. Many of them aren’t new, but I discovered them in 2008. Frivolous information, I know, but fun nonetheless. 🙂
Earthscience Herbal Tonic Mist – This oil-free moisturizer and toning spray has completely changed my skin. Just spritz it on after you wash your face and before you moisturize. It’ll firm and soften your face. I couldn’t believe just one little spray could make my skin feel so soft all day. And the ingredients are all natural!
Avalon Organics Lavender Facial Cleansing Gel & Facial Serum – I’ve got combination skin and it’s never happy. It’s either too dry or too oily. This stuff is so great because it cleans, it’s all natural, and doesn’t make my face dry. You’d think that were an easy task, but after years of trying to find a decent cleanser, it’s not.
And my face hates lotions and creams. Either they don’t moisturize enough or make me breakout. So I depend on serums and this one is again, all natural, and does the job by making my sensitive skin less red and blotchy. It totally calms my skin down, moisturizes, and doesn’t make me breakout at all. I’m a happy camper with this stuff. 🙂
Eucerin Calming Body Wash & Calming Creme – Sensitive skin has been a theme for me this year, unfortunately. So it’s not enough for me just to find some heavier lotion for my dry skin. Both these products are great because they’re gentle, affordable, and totally do the job. And I’ve tried too many of them to mention.
Sue Devitt Whipped Seaweed Foundation – I hate wearing foundation, and again, couldn’t find anything that made my skin look natural and not cakey, without blocking my pores and suffocating my skin. This stuff has seaweed extracts and other incredible ingredients that actual make your face look and feel better than before. I’ll never go back to any of the other stuff I’ve tried, again.
Kiehl’s Super Thick Volumizer – Spray this stuff on your roots, blowdry like you would normally, and voila! And it even has a little bit of hold in it if you want something lighter than a hairspray. Again, so simple and so great.
Clinique Moisture Surge Refreshing Eye Mask – Got 10 minutes? Eyes looking dry and tired? I use this when I’ve been too lazy to use eye cream in a few days or if the skin around my eyes is looking dehydrated. This stuff is easy to use and it works.
Try anything over the last year that you can’t live without? Let me know and leave me a comment. Happy New Year!
