Several of you suggested I write about beauty products. It's almost as though you have ESP because I plan on doing a product review within the next week or so, but this gives me the perfect excuse to write about products in general, which I've been wanting to do for quite some time now. I thought a fun way to start would be to answer the age old question... what's in your medicine cabinet?
TOP ROW, L TO R:
Fresh Sugar Lemon Body Lotion. Lemon is my favorite scent. I think Fresh makes the best products. I also use the coordinating perfume.
Mario Badescu Summer Shine Body Lotion. Great over a tan.
Certain Dri antipersperants. Keeps me fresh!
Cutex nail polish remover. Normally I would purchase a more specific brand, but this is from a nail emergency in crunch time.
Burt's Bees Mama Bee baby oil. I shave my legs with oil in the summer. I bought this one by accident - I really wanted the apricot.
MIDDLE ROW, L TO R:
Bliss Fabulous Foaming face wash. I go to Bliss Spa and trust their products. I wash my face only at night as my skin is very dry. This has a light exfoliant in it and smells like blueberries. I love it.
Bliss Best of Skintentions moisturizer. Sweetly scented and lightweight with an SPF. I apply this before my makeup.
Victoria's Secret Love Spell body mist. I know, it's so high school, but I just can't help it. I still love this scent.
Almay moisturizing eye makeup remover pads. Old faithful. I've been using this for years and I can't imagine ever using another product in place of this. It's great for my sensitive eyes and the oil is nice on my skin.
Lather Spa Honey Moisture Mask. I use this at night in the hashest of winter conditions. I apply a light layer and sleep in it. No need to rinse off in the morning.
Later Spa Sweet Almond Exfoliating Creme. I use this right before an airbrush tan.
Frederic Fekkai Shea Butter hair mask. I don't use this nearly as often as I should. It's kind of a pain. It's applied post shower and needs to be washed out 20 minutes later. The results are worth it though. I use a number of FF products and love them all.
BOTTOM ROW, L TO R:
Lather Spa Cucumber & Ginseng Facial Mist. I usually use this after I wash my face at night, but it can be used intermittenly during the day. My dad does a lot of traveling and collects the small Lather products that are distributed on overseas flights. I have several of this product in a miniature size and like to stash it in my makeup bag. Very refreshing.
Radius toothbrushes. These remind me of my childhood. My parents always used to use Radius toothbrushes and I had the children-sized one. They used to be a bit pricey and hard to find, but recently I've found that they have become much more accessible.
Supersmile toothpaste. I received this in a Super Saturday gift bag a few years ago and have been using it ever since. It's a bit pricier than most conventional toothpastes, but well worth it.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. Works wonders on blemishes.
Bobbi Brown Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm. I apply this in lieu of foundation (with a foundation brush). It's cooling and smells like salty sunscreen.
This was fun! If you all enjoyed this, perhaps my next segment will be, "What's inside of JGIWC's Kate Spade Makeup bag"?
