I thought it was high time I did a product round up.
It's been awhile since I've done one and I have found some products lately that I am really loving.
Almay Smart Shade Concealer : I've never been much of a concealer girl because I feel like it always gets cakey, doesn't blend well or doesn't actually conceal anything. This stuff is a whole different story. Whatever the 'smart shade' technology is in it, works wonders. It blends right into my skin tone and actually does it job of concealing. I also like to use it under my eye for a little eye brightening.
Maybelline Baby Skin : This 'baby' is the perfect primer. I used to use Monistat Anti Chafing cream for my primer (100% dupe for Smashbox's Photo Finish) and this stuff is better, cheaper and slightly less embarrassing to buy. Win win.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation : Recently I ran out of my ELF mineral foundation and after hearing great reviews from Jayme and Mendi and Katie about this foundation I was sold. Generally it pains me to spend this much on makeup but this foundation is definitely worth it. I love the way it covers and it is so easy to build with. I also picked up this brush to apply it with.
L'oreal Color Vibrancy Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner : I take my hair care pretty seriously and want to keep my highlights looking as good as they can for as long as they can. I am pretty confident this shampoo and conditioner are helping prolong the life of my highlights.
And a note on conditioner : I recently stopped using it and I have noticed such a change in my hair, for the better. It's thicker, fuller and stays clean longer. However, my hair dresser says I should still be using it at least one a week so I am trying to do that for it's general health.
Boots No 7 Skin Melting Gel Cleanser : I'm a bit nutso and use 3 different face washes. I use a Boots No 7 moisturizer which is what led me to this face wash. I use this one every other day in the shower for a gentle wash. This wash is, as it says, a gel and very, very smooth. I'm a fan.
Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser : The face wash was recommended to me by my dermatologist and I love it. I use this every other day and when I feel like I'm starting to break out. I really love this face wash but be warned it's strong. It is tingly when you put it on and there is a chance it will discolor your wash clothes, just fyi. To me that just means it's working extra hard.
Neutrogena Visibly Clean Foaming Cleanser : This is my 'in the morning' and in between face wash. It's a very mild, middle of the road face wash. I don't know if it's actually make my skin more even but I do feel like it does a good job of cleansing.
And that's what I've been using.
