They say the first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem. Well, dear faithful readers, I am an addict and Sephora is my dealer. I am a certified beauty junkie, Sephora calls my name, tantalizing my senses with a rainbow of colors and smells. I am obsessed with trying new beauty products and my bathroom drawers and shelves are filled to the limits. This is one habit I refuse to kick and therefore decided to share my favorite beauty products with you.
From an admitted beauty junkie, here is my list of my absolute favorite beauty items, some old tried and true favorites and new rock stars.
Face and Body Products:
Face Cleanser: Caudalie Gentle Cleanser, amazing creamy cleanser that leaves skin soft, clean and smooth.
Face Exfoliator: Boscia Smoothing Facial Polish, a gentle scrub that leaves skin glowing while also being natural and preservative free.
Face Moisturizer: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, I have been using this product since I was 10 years old, the perfect moisturizer.
Sunscreen: tie between La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream with Sunscreen (I wear it everyday, a lightweight, non greasy sunscreen) and Coppertone Water Babies SPF 70 (I wear it when I am outside in the summer, super potent and protective).
Body Lotion: Jason Hand and Body Therapy Vanilla Lotion, a thick moisturizing lotion that is pure, organic and natural, plus it leaves a light scent of vanilla, like a cupcake.
Self-Tanning: Lancome Flash Bronzer, gives you that just spent a week at the beach look, creates an all over, even, natural looking tan.
Hand Cream: Aveeno Intense Relief Hand Cream, I wear this every night before bed and I wake with soft, smooth hands, which is a miracle considering they take a beating each day in the barn.
