Show Us Your Life- Beauty Secrets

Happy Friday!! I decided to link up with Kelly's Korner today for Show Us Your Life. I haven't ever done one of these before, but today's topic was right up my alley. I'm always trying new products and reviewing them here on my blog. There are some products, though, that have become staples for me.

First up: Favorite Skin Care Products
I have washed my face with Cetaphil since Junior High. It's so gentle on my skin and gets my makeup off with no problem. I would buy this by the gallon if I could!

Clinque All About Eyes Rich. Best eye cream for 20 somethings. The best way to prevent wrinkles is to keep skin moisturized. This does the trick and it great for those with sensitive eyes like me.

I love Jergens Natural Glow products. I use the face lotion daily to keep me from looking ghostly. I add a few drops of this to my daytime moisturizer. I also use the foam for my body. It works great, doesn't smell terrible, and drys instantly.

Korres Yogurt Mask. This product has been a lifesaver for me this winter. I use it after I exfoliate to help minimize irritation and give my skin a moisture boost.

Favorite Makeup Products:

Diorshow mascara. I have used this for years. I always think I will find something I like better and I always end up coming back to this. It's one of the only mascara's that doesn't irritate my eyes and it make my lashes look amazing.

Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation. This is the lightest feeling foundation. It feels like a tinted moisturizer, yet covers like a dream. It has light reflecting particles so you don't look flat.

Make Up Forever HD Powder. This is a great finishing powder. It's translucent and gives you an airbrushed look. It's so lightweight that it's unbelievable.

Favorite Hair Products:
 Freeze It hair spray. So cheap and so great for poofing your hair. I have used this since high school and I seriously won't buy anything else.

Living Proof Full Thickening Cream. Before I starting using this I never put any products in my hair before blow drying because it would weigh my hair down. But this stuff is so different from any other thickening products. I highly recommend this to anyone with fine, thin hair.

Tesemme Heat Tamer Protective Spray. I use this before using a flat iron or curling iron. It works just as well as more expensive brands.

So there you have it! Those are my absolute favorite beauty products that have a permanent place in my beauty product collection. What are some of ya'lls favorite products that you can't live without?

Have a good weekend!!

I agree with you about the Cetaphil and Clinique's All About Eyes. I will have to try some of your other suggestions!

Diorshow is my favorite mascara and the one I always go back to as well. The wand is like no other and the formula is fantastic.

I’ve heard good things about that HD finishing powder. I’d love to get a sample from Sephora. I did buy the dupe from ELF, but have yet to use it.
