It’s been about a year since I last did this, and being the product junkie I am, I’ve discovered a few new things!
From left to right, top to bottom:
Organix Coconut Milk Split End Mender. I have been using this since last summer and I believe that it works. I don’t use after most washes.
Umitonic. I got a few of these free in a gift bag. This detangler has peppermint oil in it – I love it for the scent alone. Meant for dry, coarse, or color-treated hair.
Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Lotion. This is my PM moisturizer. (My AM moisturizer, in case you’re wondering, is on my vanity table because I apply it right before makeup. I use Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 and I love it.)
TIGI Catwalk Curls Rock. You’ve likely noticed that I very rarely wear my hair any way other than straight. If I want to leave it au natural, I put this in my hair. I bought this nifty little travel size at Ricky’s because I don’t use it too often.
Mario Badescu Summer Shine Body Lotion. Still loving this shimmer moisturizer.
Almay Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads. Old faithful!
Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover Pads. In case I run out of the Almay before I have a chance to buy more.
Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil. I never met a Bobbi Brown product I didn't like. Wash my face with this every night. Love, love, love it. Great for us dry-skinned gals.
Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream with Microbeads. Hands down, this is the best exfoliater I’ve every used – and I’ve tried many different kinds. This is gentle but highly effective, and my skin never felt better upon rinsing. I heard recently that exfoliating with oats or other harsh ingredients is basically the equivalent of rubbing glass shards against your skin and it made me CRINGE. Still does. Please please PLEASE invest in a good scrub. This one is $28.50 and I promise it's worth every penny. If you have to do drugstore – choose Aveeno. I use their body polish and it’s a quality product for only seven bucks!
Clinique Sun SPF 25 Body Spray. I absolutely LOATHE sunblock creams. They are messy and hard to apply. I spray this all over – takes less than 30 seconds and makes me feel good.
T3 Orlando Pita Dry Shampoo. Hair powder is one of those things I need to have but hate to spend money on. T3 sent this to me gratis, and it’s not half bad. I’m partial to the Bumble & bumble kind, though.
Dove Heat Repair spray. I use this before flat ironing. I also have the Dove shampoo and conditioner in my shower. I happen to love all Dove products, except for…
Dove Daily Moisturizer spray. It’s sort of like a revitalizer. I spray this on nights that I don’t wash, but it makes my hair look a bit oily. I love the concept of this, but don’t think I’ll be replacing it when I run out.
Clinique Self Sun Body Moisturizer. I like to use this when a spray tan fades to help maintain color. Beware of using it on very pale skin, however. If you don’t blend it in well, it will streak.
Go Smile Flashlites. I like to maintain my pearly whites, but I don’t care for whitening strips. I am a big fan of the Go Smile brand in general, especially these little ampoules. They are easy to use and very portable.
Mario Badescu. Still killing blemishes with this powerful potion.
Supersmile Toothpaste. My parents stock up on this for me every year at Super Saturday. I think I have two extra tubes under my sink as we speak.
Certain Dri Antiperspirants. Like I said to a friend the other day, I sweat in a bathing suit. Hey, I’m a Jew! My people hail from the desert.
Clarins On-The-Spot Brightening Corrector. I haven’t been using this for long enough to give a fair or accurate review, but I’m a big believer in everything Clarins.
So? Do our medicine cabinets have anything in common?
