My Beauty Products Run Down

Want to know what I use every day? What I put in my hair? On my face? What products are my favorites? Which ones I have used for ten years {gasp}. Want to know what toilet paper I use?... Okay, we won't go there.

But I thought I would share some of my "beauty" or everyday essential products. Now, I am no "beauty guru" by any means. In fact, I'm on the other end of the spectrum. It's a learning process for me. But I am learning, and that is all that matters.
1. Tresemme shampoo/conditioner {the only one out there that leaves my hair smooth and shiny and feeling healthy}

2. Corioliss Flat Iron; I have used this since high school... it is hands down the best straightener out there. My first one lasted me 6 years, and I just bought a second one. You can find them on amazon for only 30 dollars! {I had purchased mine at the mall for 120... ya, I got ripped off back in the day}

3. Soft soap body wash: I actually use various kinds, but this one is my favorite.

4. Clarisonic Mia: I have an actual "real in-depth review" coming up for this... but I'm not sure if you guys even need it. This stuff is awesome, and I just can't believe I ever lived my life without it. Okay, maybe a little dramatic here... but seriously, it is awesome. I'm not a "wash my face every day" kind of girl, but this stuff? well it makes me do it. And afterward? I feel like a brand new woman.

5. Purity face wash: this is new for me, but so far? I really like it. Anyone have any favorite face washes out there? Let me know!

6. Olay moisturizer: It's about the most budget friendly moisturizer. I have used it for years, and recently purchased a large stock of it to last me a long time. It feels light and doesn't make my face break out.

7. Dolce and Gabanna light blue: Now, I have used lots of different perfumes. In fact, Chanel mademoisell is probably my favorite... however, light blue? It's my class go-to perfume. I am sure I will love it forever.

8. Too Faced Magic Wand Foundation: this is the lightest foundation out there. In fact, it feels like moisturizer more than anything else. It's my "daily" wear. However, because it is so light, and you can't feel it... it doesn't last 12 hours. So I bring "touch" powder... or I have another foundation that I use when I "go out."

9. Clinique powder: I have used this product for... um.. almost 10 years now? The only powder I will ever use. I love love love looooove it.

  3. Olay is my all time favourite moisturiser too I love it!! I used to use tresemme alot too but i worked in a salon and the hairdressers told me that over a period of time it leaves a build up of 'wax' (they used a scientific word but I cant remember :/) on your hair which is really damaging so I swap from aussie, herbal essences and moroccon oil shampoo and conditioner now. Ooooo and I defently need to try out a clarisonic but i'm still loving liz earle cleanse and polish at the moment :) Love this post

  6. I've been using Clinique forever and always try out other new brands, but I always end up back with my clinique!

  7. I swear by that face lotion! Except I'm cheap and either buy the Equate version or the Dollar General version. It may make my face smell like old lady for a few minutes, but it's worth the savings, haha.

  10. lol it says "Soft soup body wash" ... I was like What the hell is SOFT SOUP!?? hahahaha so i scrolled up and it was softsoap. durrrr

    I too use Tresemme and LOVE it. And the face wash you NEED in your life is Purpose by Johnson&Johnson. I SWEAR by it and have turned every last one of my friends onto it. Legit I've used it since 16 as recommended to me by my dermatologist.

  11. I'm an Olay girl too. Have been for years!

    I've heard great things on the Clarisonic, so yes I would love to hear more! I wash my face twice a day - morning and night - but it's starting to show it's, ahem, age a little so I'm looking for something to add to the regimen.

    My sister has one, highly recommended by her dermatologist.

  12. I have the Purity face wash and LOVE it. I want a Clairsonic SO bad.
    I use Bare Minerals, only make up that doesn't make me break out or clog my pores.

  13. I LOVE purity face wash & I LOVE my clarisonic. seriously you said it right, I DONT know how I ever lived my life without it!! I should try that clinique powder because I HATE my bare minerals. It just doesn't give the cover I want and it has TOO many powders to give you that flawless look every girl is looking for that we can get in one powder.

    Hope you have a GREAT day!!

  17. I have been wanting one of those Clarasonic mias for a while now! Might just have to get one.

    Also, I've been wondering what program you use to make your graphics like the one in this post. Mind sharing?

  18. We use a ton of the same products!! Don't you just love your Clairsonic and purity face wash?! My face feels SO clean afterwards!

    I wore light blue in college for about 3 or 4 years ... I retired it about 4 years ago, but whenever I smell it on someone, it makes me want to go buy it again!

  19. Tresemme is the best! I got ripped off with my straightener too. Stupid mall people made it seem like the beesnees!

  20. I love Oil of Olay, my 86 yr old Grandma still swears by it too!

  21. I use Arbonne face wash and mineral make up. Used to be a Bare Minerals girl, but it became to drying for me. Plus I love that their stuff is cruelty free and Mineral Oil/Paraben free. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love, love, love Light Blue! I will wear no other scent! It's amazing and I get tons of compliments!

    Bare Minerals is my favorite makeup because I get a smooth appearance without looking fake. It leaves my skin feeling silky. I am a daily face washer and I always use Philosophy's Purity Made Simple. It's is gentle for daily use. Hope In a Jar, also by Philosophy, is the best moisturizer. It doesn't leave a greasy film and hydrates perfectly before makeup and bedtime.

    Thank you for you suggestions. I'm thinking abut Clarisonic and always looking for reviews!!!

  23. Love this!!! How do you put your collage together like this mama??? Sooo cool!!! I've been trying to do something like this but don't know how! I use Clinique everything almost because I have such sensitive skin but Olay moisturizer is definitely amazing!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. ummmm I need to try all of these! I am obsessed with Clinique though. Loooove.

  25. Your flat iron...is it as strong as a Chi? I have a chi but I'm afraid its going to go out soon so I'm looking for when that time comes.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great post! You have a great routine

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love Purity face wash! Olay makes some great cleansers, but none compare to Purity.

    I want to try Too Faced Magic Wand Foundation. Too Faced has great products.

    ReplyDelete
  28. good stuff! i'm very curious about the clarisonic. i've debated getting one. my biggest concern is if it's too abrasive? love to hear more of your review of it.

    my favorite face wash is Purpose. it's as pure as water :)
