When it comes to beauty products for myself- I lean more towards the “quick and easy” variety than towards the super-fancy high-priced products. It wasn’t always this way… when I was younger, working, and in department stores daily for my career… I was a devotee of cosmetics in small shiny packages. But these days…. I am more of a CVS-on-sale shopper…. and I have rounded up for you below- my 5 favorite beauty products!
1. EOS Lip Balm
My husband has been known to tell me that I have a lip balm addiction. I think I am just a girl who likes to have moist lips! And my all-time-favorite lip balm is the kind that comes in this cute round case from EOS. I keep one in my makeup drawer, one in my purse, one in my car, and one in my kitchen. Yeah…. maybe I do have a problem.
2. Aveeno Lotion
I love this thick lotion that leaves my body moisturized all day. But I use it in a surprising way…. I use it on my face. Most people would probably find it to be too thick for their face, but my skin can be on the dry side, and I just love how it keeps the flakes off of my nose!
3. Pantene Hair Products
I remember when the girl who used to cut my kids hair recommended this shampoo and conditioner, telling me that she believes that it keeps kids hair in the best condition. I have been using it ever since- for their hair and for mine! It leaves our hair very soft and shiny!
4. Oil of Olay Face Scrubber
I love my face scrubber… (when I actually remember to use it!)…. my face feels so smooth and so clean afterwards…. (and all primed for a dollop of my Aveeno lotion!)
5. Gel Gloves and Aquaphor
I wash my hands a ga-jillion times a day…. and in the winter, they become so dry that they can sometimes even crack and bleed. The best thing I have found to give my dry hands relief is to slather then in Aquaphor and then to wear a pair of gel gloves. I think I purchased mine at Bath and Body Works a few years ago…. and I love them!
