Because I forgot to take pictures over the holidays, I thought I'd do one of my "Top Things" post. Here it goes:
Okay I had to list these first because they've changed my life. As the step-daughter of a dentist, I was always encouraged to brush regularly and extensively, but for some strange reason no one encouraged me to floss. In came Stephen. I used to sit and admire him floss like every other night, seriously I was so impressed by that. But it was a discipline I just couldn't commit to, mainly because I was so grossed out using the same string of floss for all of my dirty teeth, so...I would use like half a roll each time (and I just reasoned it in my head that I was making up for lost time). In came Oral B picks. Now I floss almost "every single night" seriously and it's oh so easy. After I brush, I only use one stick, and rinse the pick in between teeth, and when I'm finished rinse with Scope (and my mouth is so grateful). I really think it's improved morning breath (this is way more than you wanted to know. slightly gross I'm sure).
I've tried a bunch of different cleansers and this is my favorite. It's reasonably priced, it smells fabulous, and it's all natural.
I've also experimented with several facial moisturizers and this is my favorite. It is not at all greasy, but it definitely gives my face the moisture it needs, has SPF 15, and doubles for me as an eye makeup remover. And a little goes a long way.
Since I've stopped coloring my hair it lacks a lot of body and texture. This is where Superstar entered my life. While I rarely do much at all to my hair (b/c frankly I'm lazy), putting a little bit of this on the root area of my hair & bangs gives a little life to my hair. And lately I've been combining these two hair products. This stuff lasts me forever too!
This is my favorite moose. Lately, I've combined this with the Superstar (in the hair world they call that a "cocktail") and I like the results.
I just couldn't leave out my lip gloss. I know it's a repeat from last year, but this trusty stuff is so good to me.
And last but not least, my favorite powder/foundation. If you haven't tried this, you must. Most people use it now and I understand why. It evens out my skin tone and looks completely natural. And it's supposedly "good" for your skin, all natural.
Wait! I had to add just one more...my mascara. I have tried all different kinds (including a sample from Chanel) and Full and Soft does the most magic for my lashes. AND it doesn't flake and it washes off easily. The best part is it's like $6ish bucks at CVS!
