What are your must have daily beauty essentials? For face, body, hair, make-up, anything.. and why do you love it? I want to try out some new products and thought it would be nice to know what other bees love!

I use St Ives exfoliating face wash every day, it’s awesome. I also use Aveeno sensitive skin moisturizer. Those are my go-to products and I haven’t changed in years. They better not discontinue anything!!

I love my Clarisonic. Even after one use my face feels so much softer and looks clearer.

I also love the clarosonic, murad intensive C peel, origins charcoal mask (dab in problem areas- really helps overnight. Benefit “They’re Real” mascara, Latisse… I’m a product junkie.

pinkcrush: I love jojoba oil for dry flaky skin! It doesn’t clog your pores either, so it’s great.
For hair I’m really loving Reflections oil right now. It really protects it, and speeds up drying time.

I need to use everyday my coconut oil for my hair, eye cream, face wash, moisturizer and chapsticks. My partner hates how long I take to prep for bed, but I find it absolutely necessary.

I’m obsessed with my Stila corrector, it’s the best thing ever and worth every cent. I will also not leave the house without mascara.
In the last year I’ve switched to the ROC face wash products and I love it.
Pinkmoon: I used to use the St. Ives apricot scrub every day until my sister who
s an aethetician told me its actually really bad for your face :/ which sucks because I loved it too – she said if I must use it, no more than twice a week…

I have curly hair, so my HG is the Deva Curl product line. I am a borderline fanatic of these products. I’m also in love with CeraVe moisturizer for my face, Curel moisturizer for my body, Smashbox BB Cream, Urban Decay make-up setting spray (but not if I am wearing Benefit “They’re Real” mascara. The two are not a good combo), and Benefit Fake-up undereye concealer (best concealer I have ever tried!).

I don’t use a lot of make up ( just foundation, powder, blusher some lipstick sometimes), but I find it very important to take care of my skin, I love all Kiehls products.

I love love love the R9 system from Arbonne. My skin has never felt or looked better since I dropped all my drug-store products and went with the R9 products. I also use bare minerals when I need some coverage/bronzing. I’ve used the same maybeline eyeshadow trip shades since highschool.
Before I go into my most favorite beauty item, know this: I am not a prissy girl. I work in IT for 12+hrs/day. I rarely wear makeup. When I do, it’s usually a little shadow, maybe eyeliner, maybe blush. That’s it. I decided to treat myself to something before the wedding to make me feel more girly. I got eyelash extensions.
Best. Decision. Evar!
I wake up in the morning, wash my face, put on some lotion, and I’m out the door. Seriously. I look like I spent 20 minutes putting on expensive mascara, but I don’t have to. I went with a more natural look and not a glammed up look. My profile pic is me with no makeup on, just the extensions.

Clinique redness solutions face wash (and cream, if I’m splurging). That stuff is amazing; my face is clean and oil-free, but not dry. Love it!
For makeup, I can cobble myself together with just about anything, but I’m totally addicted to my bare minerals primer. It is the secret key to perfect-looking skin. Add their foundation to it, and voila! Everything else is just icing on the cake 😉
Last (and most boringly), chapstick. Can’t live without the stuff lol.
distressddamsel: Your eyes look great! I’m impressed you had the nerve to do those, but they look really good!

Clarisonic, Estée Lauder Double Wear Light, Bobbi Brown Be Bold blush in pink peonies, MAC Creme sheen Glass in Loud & Lovely, Benefit They’re Real mascara, Dove dry shampoo, NutraLuxe MD lash growth serum, MoroccanOil serum, and Joico K-Pak Reconstuctor hair mask.
These are just my holy grail products. Apparently the Bobbi Brown blush is limited edition, so I stocked up!

And Fresh sugar lip scrub and the lip treatment in sugar honey! Can’t do without those two either.
I’m not even a beauty junkie. I’m ashamed of all the products I use.
