I learned the hard way. When I find a product I really love, I have to buy two at a time. My worst nightmare is trying squeeze or scape out the last remanence of a product I use every single day. I stay equipped now for moments like those. Crisis averted.


YSL TOUCHE ECLAT Radiance Perfecting Pen

I use this under my eyes, on the bridge of my nose along my smile lines, on my chin and on my forehead everyday. You could imagine I go through these fast and I do! Once I experienced the major disappointment of going “click click” at the top of the pen with no product to gush out and I freaked. There are too many areas on my face that rely on this concealer to brighten the day.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

This is my favorite face cleaner because I use it to take off makeup or just the grime from the day. Sometimes I like to use it morning and night. I buy little travel size versions of them as well and end up using those when I run out of the regular size bottles. It is so gentle on my skin and doesn’t dry it out. It also is surprisingly not messy.

The Fat & The Moon Lip/Cheek Stain

I keep on of these in my makeup bag and one in my purse. So I always need two. Its my quick pick me up to hydrate my lips and leave them with a pouty stain. Or if I feel like my end of day makeup is not holding up so well and dab some on my cheek for an instant rosy glow. Like all lip balms, I tend to lose one from time to time or just forget what pocket I left it in, so I always stock up! Plus its two in one purpose so I can't lose.

Mario Badescu Whitening Mask

This mask moisturizes my face while evening and brightening my skin. It drys fast so its nice to use even in the morning before I head out. I can use this mask up to 3 times a week so I can go through it pretty quickly.

Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair Eye Serum

Estee Lauder sent this serum my way and now I'm hooked. I use it under my eyes at night and even on my smile lines. It is light weight, doesn’t irritate my skin and when I wake up in the morning the areas where I need the most hydration are plumped.


Minera Dead Sea Salt

This is my staple bath salt. I go through phases. Sometimes I take three baths a week or no baths at all, but usually when I’m having a "bathing beauty" week, I go through the salts pretty fast. The salts are relaxing, purifying and hydrating to my skin. I also use it as a body scrub mixed with a body wash so it is not too harsh. This product is multi-purpose which is always a plus.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

Whether I’m tan or not this primer bronzes my complexion. My face is always lighter than the rest of my body. I opt for this, over actual foundation. It gives me that sun kissed glow and evens out my complexion. One time I was in New York and realized I didn’t have it and immediately went to Sephora only to find out they didn’t have it in stock. I settled for a Givenchy primer and felt naked without my beloved Mercier Primer the rest of the trip.


Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips

Once I used the pore strips I was hooked. It was immediate satisfaction to know I cleansed the pores on my nose. Nothing more satisfying than seeing the evidence on the little black strip. I use them when I travel and at home. It is an effective product that never disappoints.
