tried and true skincare

When you’re a beauty junkie you tend to like to try a lot of different products. I get so excited to try new skincare that I sometimes find it’s hard to stick with a certain product. If I buy a product more than once, it’s a bit of a miracle, but it also means that product is awesome!

Here are the tried and true products I cannot live without:

egyptian-magic-jarEGYPTIAN MAGIC: This stuff is wonderful. I use it for everything: a winter moisturizer, hand cream, makeup remover, and I even used it as a primer in the dry months. My hubby loves it too and uses it for face and beard. It is a bit pricey, but the big jar lasts a while.

FAWN LILY BOTANICA LIP BALM:fawnlilylipbalms-product_2x-1454353792 These are a new addition to my favorites. My husband surprised me with the spiced chai + coconut and the hibiscus+ginger+rosehip for my birthday and I am in love with both. The spiced chai is wonderful for every day — so creamy and moisturizing. The hibiscus is totally sexy – it leaves a subtle glow and just a touch of color and shine. I don’t know if I will use another brand of lip balm again. I’m totally addicted!

item-herbal-toner2043142432014_lgDOCTOR D SCHWAB HERBAL TONER: My former esthetician introduced me to this and it changed my life. It’s light and refreshing. I love that it isn’t drying. It comes in a huge bottle that lasts forever so there’s enough to use it to refresh your neck and decolletage (heck, sometimes I spray it all over my body). The fragrance is bright, flowery and a great pick me up. I recommend this as a perfect summer toner.
