My 10 Favorite Beauty Products

Wait! Are we ice skating home? Did hell freeze over? It might have, because I'm doing a beauty post! Haha! Okay, maybe that's a bit dramatic.  I rarely post about beauty products, because I don't feel that I am in anyway authorized to talk about beauty products. I'm a very 'classic' type of girl. Once I find a product that I like I tend to stick with it. Today I thought I would share some of those products (in no particular order)!



1. & 2. Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser and Face Lotion
I absolutely love Aveeno's skin care products. They are clean, no perfumes, and clear of pretty much any chemicals. My doctor even approves! I can sometimes be a victim of adult acne, I've fought it all my life, and the clear complexion products really help keep those nasty buggers away.

3. Gillette Sensor 3 Sensitive Sensible Disposable Razor
I will say that this is the BEST razor I've ever used. I totally came across it by accident.  In December of last year I went to Ohio with my mom and dad for my Aunt's funeral. I was so flustered by the entire ordeal that I packed really poorly. We are in the hotel room and I was getting ready to shower and I really needed to shave my legs. I had forgotten to pack my razor, so I asked my mom and dad if they had an extra with them by any chance. My dad had an extra disposable razor that I was able to use. BEST SHAVE EVER!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not even kidding. It's $4.99 for a pack of 4 razors. I won't use anything else.

4. Covergirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup
I have gone through so many foundations since I started wearing makeup. I started early too, in 6th grade (that's early, right?), because of theater. Out of all of the foundations that I've tried, I like this one the best. It's a very smooth application and it covers up my red spots and acne scars really well. It's not noticeable that I'm wearing makeup either. I'm L4 which is classic beige. I love it!

5. Mabelline Volume Express The Rocket Volum' Mascara
Mascaras are a tough one for me. I'm very particular about the brush. Some mascaras flake once their dry and I hate that! I really like the brush that comes with this mascara. It dries fast and it doesn't flake. I always get mascara in 'blackest black.'

6. L'Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner 24 Hour
I used to use brown eye shadow for liner. I would wet a small angled brush and apply it that way. It started to get pretty messy, so I knew that I needed to find a new way. I'm horrible with a pencil and I just feel like I'm stabbing myself in the eye. I've always wanted to try Gel, so when I found this product I was definitely game to try it. With the Infallible Gel Lacquer you only need a small amount on the tip of the brush. A little goes a along way. The brush is really soft and the color glides on so smoothly. It took me a little while to get the hang of it, but I absolutely LOVE this eyeliner!

7. Simple Eye Makeup Remover
This is a very gentle eye makeup remover. It doesn't sting or smell funny. It does a great job of taking off the eye makeup.

8. Bath & Body Works Lotions
I love the scents that bath and body works makes. My three favorite scents are paris, moonlight path and sea island cotton. There are soooo many to choose from, but I've found that I always come back to these three.

9. Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Body Lotion
I have really dry skin. Especially my hands and feet. I wash my hands sooo much throughout the day and my feet get abused from wearing heels at work all day. Before I go to bed I like to put the Advanced Therapy Body Lotion from Lubriderm on.  As long as I use it pretty regularly, it does really well for my hands and feet.

10. Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things Noir Perfume
I'm not a big perfume person, but I love this perfume. For Christmas 2010 my mom gave me a little sample box of six different Victoria's Secrets perfumes. I fell in love with Rock Star, but they stopped making it. My next favorite was the Sexy Little Things Noir. The last time I went to Victoria's Secret I smelled all of the other ones and this still remains my current favorite.

Well, those are all of my favorites. How about you? What are some of your favorite beauty products?
