Okay, I am no pro when it comes to beauty products. I am up, made up, and out the door in 30 minutes each morning, and that includes loading a baby into the car with me. But, that is not to say that I don’t have my go-to products that keep me from looking like a walking zombie. One of these days, I think I will be pressuring my sister into joining me for a blog post, I am pretty sure her beauty collection could fund an all expense paid trip to Jamaica. The girl knows her products, and also knows where to find a steal of a deal and where it is worth the splurge. AND girly just got a job at a fantastic salon, which means this sista gets some pretty nice Aveda discounts. I will be keeping you posted on that.
SO, now that I have talked up my sister who will probably scoff at my beauty regimen, here are some of my favorite products.
1. Biore Ice Cleanser
This stuff is magic. I always had the greatest skin, and one day when I was 22 my skin decided to take a turn for the worst. No real acne or anything, just way more breakouts than I had ever experienced. I have tried MANY products, cheap, expensive, and in between, and this really is the best. It keeps breakouts away, but doesn’t dry out my skin like so many of the other ‘strong’ facewashes do. I ran out of it last week and went about 3 days using backup products, and seriously in those 3 days my skin went downhill. This stuff is great, and cheap!
2. Bath and Body Works Sugar Aromatheraphy Sugar Scrub
When it comes to makeup, I am CHEAP. But I got this for Christmas last year and literally use it every. single. day. I use ELF eye primer, and you get away with using way less of the shadow. I know Maybelline has a new palette that is similar, and I am dying to try it out.
5. L’Oreal Paris Valuminous Mascara
