A Few of My Favorite Things

As the year draws to a close, I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite things from 2013. These are all in the beauty/drugstore category – it seems that every woman I know is perpertually on the lookout for the next “greatest thing” when it comes to skin & hair care and makeup. These are a few of my ‘finds’ – I’m sure you have your favorites too. I’d love to hear about them!

prevageTried & True: Prevage MD
I’ve used this cream morning and night for several years now and believe it has made a difference in my skin. (I’ve actually switched just to mornings now – read on below about my new evening ritual.) You can only get it from a dermatologist and it’s a little pricey, but to me it’s worth it.  A little bit goes a long way, so you don’t need to slather it on.

biooilNew Find #1: Bio-Oil
I’ve seen ads for this oil for a long time now, especially in print media, and wondered what it was all about.  Then I decided to try it on a small scar on my hand that was healing from an oven burn.  It really seemed to make the healing process much faster and the skin much smoother. Now I regularly use it as a body oil after showering.  I do think it has made a difference in the texture of my skin and I’m keeping it up. Best of all – it’s a drug or grocery store buy, so not expensive at all.

lashell mineral tinted creamNew Find #2: LaShell Cosmetics MDScience Mineral Tint
A friend and colleague carries a cosmetics line (LaShell Cosmetics) and this mineral tinted primer is a product I use every day now.  I blend a small amount of the primer with a small amount of bronzer and then smooth over my face and neck.  It really evens out skin texture and I don’t feel the need for additional foundation, at least on a day to day basis. For evening, I would still use additional product. This product is also reasonably priced and, again, a little goes a long way.  Love it!

moroccan oilNew Find #3: Moroccan Oil
Just a couple of pumps of this oil, rubbed into your wet hair prior to drying, helps it retain moisture and thus, shine.  While it’s not a total problem solver for me (since the bleach is so hard on my hair), it definitely helps. If your hair isn’t abused by bleach, you’ll probably see great results.
