Do you have a daily beauty routine? I think I’m finally getting into one where I’ve found the products I love and that I can tell are actually working. I’ve been meaning to share a post like this for a while now, I’ve been receiving emails from some of my readers asking me which beauty products I use.
Hopefully I’m not the only one, but back in my late teens/early twenties I didn’t have the most amazing beauty routine, not that now is perfect either but I’m in a much better place. Back when I was younger I committed the beauty mistake of going to bed with my makeup on, not always applying night cream, not using hand cream consistently, I guess you could say I was lazy and ignorant. Now though I’m in a much better place where I’m not sleeping with makeup on, I’m exfoliating my skin on a regular basis, I’m applying hand cream often, moisturizing my lips, and wearing SPF every day
Something I keep at home, in my purse, in my car and in my gym bag are Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes. I actually buy them in bulk at Costco, but they’re available in most drugstores. These towelettes are handy for quickly removing my makeup and keeping my face fresh and clean. I use them to remove my makeup before I work out and after I work out. Your pores open up while you’re sweating and exercising and if you have makeup on when that happens you’re basically welcoming clogged pores with open arms. I will admit that back in the day I was the girl who’d go to the gym with makeup on, I blame my vanity I guess.
The little bottle of magic I always keep with me is Estée Lauder’s ‘Advanced Night Repair’. Anytime I have a blemish or problem spot on my face I apply a little of this before bed and by morning the problem is gone. I also apply this under my eyes. Magic does come in the form of this bottle.
The face cream of all face creams.
The ultimate mascara if you want think, dark, long lashes. Tom Ford doesn’t mess around.
I never knew I could love a nail polish remover until I started using this. It smells nice and doesn’t dry out my hands. In one swipe with a cotton ball my nail polish is gone.
For glowing skin use this. It’s basically like rubbing pearls on your face.
The softest gel cleanser, I have this in a travel size so I can take it with me when I’m away and keep the larger bottle at home. I’ve been using this for over 2 years now and can’t imagine using anything else.
I apply this hand cream every night before bed and keep another bottle in my purse with me for day time application.
I didn’t know it was possible to erase the dark circles from under my eyes until I started using this corrector.
I’m always interested in learning about new products and would love to know some of your favorites and must haves, I hope you’ll share them with me in the comments below. Also, if you decide to check out any of my favorite beauty products I’d love to know what you think!
