But...I have been trying a few other beauty products, and here's what I am currently loving.
My sister Holly turned me on to this moisturizer which is applied to wet skin directly after your shower or bath. Since skin is most receptive to moisture when it's wet, this oil-infused moisturizer goes directly on wet skin and is instantly locked in for maximum hydration. I bought the Monoi Oil, and it smells divine and keeps my skin soft and smooth for up to 12 hours.
BareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer $20
I've tried a slew of concealers in my time, and I can never seem to find one that covers effectively and mirrors my own skin tone. But this one by BareMinerals offers remarkable coverage and is a perfect match for my skin tone. I'm telling you...from dark under eye circles to blotches to pimples, this covers it all and lasts all day long. It's a keeper in my makeup bag.
Colgate Optic White Platinum High Impact White Toothpaste $4
Not only does this toothpaste whiten your teeth, it also helps to prevents stains. It's a must for me as I love my iced coffee and iced tea on a daily basis. It promised to whiten my teeth up to 4 shades. I've noticed that my teeth are whiter even though I haven't quite used it for the recommended twice daily for six weeks. But I did notice a difference within 3 days. Combined with other products in the Colgate Optic White family, you can see a difference sooner.
Wet n Wild 1 Step Gel Nail Polish (assorted colors) $5
I love the look and lasting power of gel nail polish, but I don't like the exposure to UV rays. I also don't like how impossibly difficult it is to remove. This polish gives you great coverage just like salon gel polishes without all the other hassles.
Model Cosmetics Bronze Powder $24
I don't use a bronzer often but with the warmer weather months approaching I wanted to add one to my makeup arsenal to give me the sought after fake glow. I like the hint of color this bronzer adds without being too heavy or too dark. Plus, it doubles as an eyebrow powder to fill in sparse spots.
