Bath & Beauty

I thought I would share today the various bath & body products that I use and love.

Bath:

1. St. Ives Body Wash: Energizing Citrus

I actually fell in love with this bodywash in the Philippines & I bought it when I came home. It just smells so good, like lemons, grapefruit, etc. Yum. Plus it comes in a huge bottle and lasts for a long time. I love it.






2. Dove go fresh Beauty Bar, Cool Moisture Cucumber & Green Tea

I alternate days between bodywash & soap. This smells like green tea & cucumbers and leaves your skin nice & soft.





3. Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

My hair's been weird lately. I have very fine long straight hair. But lately it's gotten frizzy in places where it's growing out & this is the only shampoo that's worked for me so far! I love the smell of this, kind of a tropical scent. It leaves my hair sleek & smooth. I tried their anti-frizz shampoo but this one worked best for my hair.


4. St. Ives Apricot Scrub for Oily or Acne Prone Skin

I love love love this scrub. I've used it for years. It smells nice and it really cleans deep down and leaves your skin clean & soft. I use it a few times a week.






5. Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar

I have oily skin & I break out from time to time. I love Clinque soap because it's gentle. I've been using this for months and I haven't had to buy a new one yet, it's a huge bar of soap & comes in it's own soap holder.





6. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

Best face lotion ever. It's gentle and it doesn't have a scent to it and leaves my face moisturized.







7. Secret Scent Expressions Deodorant: Vava Vanilla

They discontinued their other scent Vanilla Chai. But this smells similar. I love the vanilla scent. It's different for a deodorant.






8. Dove go fresh Deodorant: Cool Essentials

Yes, I also alternate deodorants. Sometimes if I use the same scent for a long time it will stop working, so I alternate. This smells like the Dove soap I use. Cucumber and green tea. Mmmm.





9. Jergens Naturals Lotion: Soothe

This is a new product. I really love the scent, it smells like vanilla. It has yogurt & chamomile in it. I have sensitive skin so this doesn't irritate. (Especially my legs after shaving!)






10. Queen Helene Masque: Mint Julep

Another I've been using for years. This smells sooo good! It tingles when you put it on your face, it's really relaxing & soothing. I use it every few weeks or so.





Beauty

1. Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation: Fair Ivory

Out of all the foundations I've tried (even MAC) I still love Max Factor the best. It really stays put and I like the coverage.







2. Mac Sheer Loose Powder: NC5

Love it! I used to use Physician's Formula powder but then I switched to this. It's much lighter & covers nicely in a flawless way. I don't think I'm ever going to use another face powder again.





3. Mac Blotting Powder: Light

I started using this last year. It's fantastic! I put it over my normal powder. It makes your skin really smooth and keeps oil away without adding any extra color. I have to get a new one soon, mine is almost gone.





4. Maybelline Cover Stick Waterproof Concealer: Ivory

I've used this since I was a teenager. I've never found another concealer that can match this stuff. It's perfect for covering up pimples, red spots, etc. It blends easy & stays put the whole day since it's waterproof.





5. Mac Pigment Eyeshadow: Naked

I've been using MAC pigment eyeshadow for several years now. I'm never going to use another brand again! These are perfect. I own several colors but I like 'naked' best. These eyeshadows last forever too because a little goes a long way & they give you so much in a jar. It doesn't crease & it's got nice subtle sparkle.



6. Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner: Blackest Black

I've had lot's of issues with eyeliner. I think my eyes must be deep set so after several hours I always find a line of eyeliner on my brow bone! I tried so many black eyeliners before I came across this one! It doesn't budge. I love it!





7. Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss: Raspberry

I love this stuff. I don't like lipstick. I always use lipgloss. This one is like a lipbalm and a lip gloss in one. It's got a nice sheer color & lot's of shine. It's not sticky either & doesn't have a taste to it. I always use 'raspberry'.





8. Burt's Bees Lip Balm

I became addicted to this a few years ago. It's all natural and I love the tingly mint taste. It's perfect for dry chapped lips. Another that goes with me everywhere!






9. Bonne Belle Lip Smacker Dr. Pepper Lip Gloss

I've used Lip Smacker since I was a kid. I used to have a whole collection of them. Dr. Pepper is my favorite though. I love the color of it. It's got a nice natural red sheen to it and I love the cherry taste.





10. Victoria's Secret Pink Body Mist & Lotion

This is my scent! I love Victoria's Secret Pink! I've been wearing it for years now & I haven't tired of it. It smells so good like fresh flowers. I prefer using the body mist though because it's lighter & it lasts much longer than the perfume since you get a bigger bottle of it.


(Nope, not getting paid to recommend these products! I just wanted to share them, because I love them!)
