5 THINGS MY BEST FRIEND SWEARS BY


I recently wrote about how I spent some time with my best friend. It was great catching up and it was even better raiding her beauty stash. Debbie is a product and makeup junkie like me but her taste has always been so much more honed to precision than mine is. While my tastes are every color of the spectrum, she is very classic and more of a natural beauty. She splurges when it comes to skincare but can just as easily have a current favorite foundation from the drugstore. It is always so much fun for me to see what she is loving at the moment and what items have become staples in her everyday routine. Here is what she had to say:

1. Clarisonic - This beauty product came into my life about a little over a year ago as a Christmas gift from my husband. BEST GIFT EVER! I definitely felt a difference from the very first time I used it. It leaves my face with an actual clean feeling and I can honestly say that it's been a year with much fewer pimples.  And now that I actually have to start using a night cream since I'm in my 30's, ugh!, its good to have that nice clean base before applying any other products. Same to be said when applying make-up. A nice, smooth, clean face to start off with and then being able to wash it all off. 

2. Skinceuticals LHA Cleansing gel- I've been using this cleanser for the past several years. I really likes that it leaves my face with a nice clean feeling without any gunky residue. I can actually use this product several times a day and it wont over-dry my face. I have combination skin so this cleanser provides a good balance. Used together with the Clarisonic, these two are my definite MUST HAVES!!

3. Shea Sugar Scrub- I like to use this scrub in the shower as it deeply exfoliates my skin and hydrates at the same time. I use it at least 2-3 times a week, especially before shaving. It helps to give me nice smooth soft skin. 

4. Johnson's Intense Moisture Cream- I have to admit, I stole this product from my growing baby. I loved the way it smells and it reminds me of him. Especially during the winter months. The humidity here in Houston takes a toll on my skin. It really dries it out and this lotion has been the most hydrating to my skin. It also helps that while I'm lathering him up, I can get some on me as well.   
 

5. Lancome Gloss In Love- I fell in love with this lip gloss because not only does it give you just enough shine without the stickiness but the brush has a curved tip. It's like a hug for your lips. My days are so crazy running after a toddler that sometimes I don't even get to put on make up, but I always make sure to have at least some kind of lip gloss on. And some days you just need a hug.

And don't we all just sometimes need a hug?

  5. I am obsessed with sugar scrub! Especially in the summer when I spend so much time in the sun. I also love Lance lip gloss. Great recommendations!

  6. What fantastic picks! I couldn't be without a decent face wash/scrub and a rich moisturiser for night time - I definitely need those luxuries
