  • Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

    I love this lip balm. I love the minty scent and how moisturizing it is. It feels so great on super dry, chapped lips. This is also the only lip balm my boyfriend will use, so we always keep a few on hand around the apartment. I think this balm has a better texture than some of the other popular lip balm brands and it smells nicer and heals just as well if not better.

  • Biosilk Silk Therapy

    This was one of my favorite products when I had long hair. It's a touch on the pricey side, but even for long hair, you only need a tiny drop, so even a small bottle lasts a LONG time. I always rubbed that tiny drop between my palms then worked the product through my hair, concentrating on the tips and the middle part of my hair, then the roots last, just to smooth things out and give it a bit of shine. As long as I didn't accidentally get too much, this product was never greasy and it didn't flatten out my fine hair. It made my hair feel SO soft and kept it looking shiny (but not icky) all day. I still recommend this to my friends with long hair!

  • Goody Ouchless Elastics

    When I had long hair these are the ONLY elastics I would use. They're nice and thick and they hold hair really well without ever getting tangled. With regular use they do eventually break, but you get LOTS of elastics for not a lot of money, so it's really not a big deal when one breaks. I still keep these on hand for my long haired friends & visitors, even though I no longer need them. They're so good I'm still recommending them to people, over a year after I switched to a pixie cut!

  • Redken All Soft Conditioner

    I LOVE the Redken All Soft line. It really does make hair super shiny and soft and it has a lovely scent. Unfortunately, I'm also allergic to Redken products. If I use them regularly I get very itchy. But if you don't have this problem with their products, I definitely recommend this line!

  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    This is my second favorite sunblock! (My FAVORITE is the Neutrogena spray--it's faster and easier than rubbing on the lotion, especially for reapplying at the beach!) It definitely doesn't feel anywhere near as greasy as other sunblocks and as long as I put on enough and reapply frequently (I'm a pale redhead), it works really well.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Drying Mask

    This absolutely does smell terrible, but it's also absolutely worth it. It works. It works really, really well. When I was using this mask regularly (about twice a week), I noticed a significant decrease in the shine and excess oil on my face every day. The only reason I don't use it anymore is because I lost mine and lately I don't even have time for a mask once a week so there isn't much point. Someday I'd like to buy a new one, though. It definitely decreases breakouts, too, but doesn't dry out the skin.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Special Cucumber Lotion

    I used this for a long time and I loved it. It's the most gentle toner I've ever used, but it still manages to really do the job. It really cleanses deep and improves my complexion. I also love the bottle design, so it's really easy to get only the amount you need and not waste product. This product is worth every penny and then some and the only reason i stopped buying it was because I moved and it was much harder to find where I live now.

  • Murad Clarifying Toner

    This works nicely, in conjunction with the rest of my (non-Murad) skincare routing. My cleanser works very well, but I still feel better using the toner and knowing my skin is REALLY clean, especially before I go to bed at night. Unlike some other toners I've used, this one doesn't cause breakouts. My skin feels clean (but not dry or tight) after I use this. It costs a little more than I usually pay for toner, but as long as I'm careful with putting it on the cotton ball, I don't need much to get the job done, so I think the bottle will last a nice long time, making it worth the money.

  • Murad Renewing Cleansing Cream

    I had a sample of this cleanser. It did well enough for getting my skin clean and it seemed gentle, but my skin certainly didn't seem renewed, by any means. Not a product I would purchase.

  • Murad Clarifying Mask

    This is a nice mask and I like the way my skin feels after I rinse it off. Soft, clean and not at all dry. It has a good, thick consistency and the scent isn't unpleasant. I'm only using a deluxe sample I got from Sephora and even that tiny bottle has lasted a long time, though I admit I probably haven't used it as much as I should, so it may have even more results that I haven't seen in action. Normally with masks I sort of just slap them on and wait the time before I rinse them off, but I have found this mask seems to work better for me if I take the time to really massage it into my skin as I'm putting it on. I end up with a thinner layer of the mask than they recommend, but I still think it works better. What can that thicker layer of product do when most of it isn't against your skin, anyway?
