Do you have a beauty routine, or products that make you feel beautiful? A little known fact about me…I am a product junkie! I love anything that has to do with make-up, lipgloss, *smell goods*, shimmery, sparkly, wonderful products. So, for this fabulous Friday I thought I would share some of my favorite beauty products that I use daily.
*Beauty is whatever gives joy*

1- Rodan+ Fields is my new FAV! I have been using these products for almost a year now and my skin has never looked better. I use several different ones at one time. Mainly the Anti-Age, and Renew (for discoloration). I have recently started using the sunscreen which smells wonderful and is not sticky! I love these products because they were created by women, for women (and men) and are very specific in their goals for your skin. My wonderful consultant Natalie Kempker in Gainesville, Ga. is THE BEST! I would receommed these products to anyone and use mine everynight!
2- Mary Kay has been around forever and has lovely products. I have many favorites from this line as well. The Tinted Moisturizer is another fav (not pictured) that I use everday. When I take my girls to school, go run, or just want to have a little color it is great. It has sunscreen in it so I have coverage on days when I forget. My MOST favorite products from Mary Kay are the lip glosses and lipsticks. They pair well together. I put the sheer lipstick on, and then put the gloss over it. It gives just the right shimmer and color to my lips, since I usually do heavier eyes, I like to have a more nude lip. My consultant for Mary Kay, Tara Miller, is not only my friend and neighbor, but a fantastic consultant. She keeps me up on all the latest beauty news and trends for the season!

3- Elf Cosmetics has been around for a while also. It started out as an internet only company but is now sold in local retail stores, mainly Target. I am a sucker for these products because they are low cost, high quality,and super fun! They have something for everyone. Shimmery, Matte, Smoky, anything you are looking for depending on the look you are trying to achieve. These sets come with eyeshadow, eye pencils, and liner for $5.00…YES, I said $5.00. Gotta love a beauty deal! The brushes and mineral powder are equally as fabulous!
4- Bath and Body Works Who doesn’t love this company! I have a few favorites as you can see. My favorite line is the True Blue Spa line. The Paraffin Hand lotion(hot pink bottle) and sugar scrub are perfect for dry flaky hands in the winter and to keep them young looking in the summer. I am a bit picky about my hands. (They are one of my favorite parts of a humans body! ) I use the Paraffin Hand lotion every night before I go to bed. My other new fav is the Malibu Body Scrub and Cream. It smells just like the beach. My piece of heaven! It leaves me feeling soft and smelling yummy! And you certainly cannot forget the sanitizers in all the fancy, schmancy smells and of course C.O Bigelow lip treatment…what else but Coconut!
5- Aquaphor is a miracle cream for us, or *magic cream* as my girls call it. Truly, we use it for everything from scraped knees, chapped lips, diaper rash (when we had them), stitches recently, paper cuts, burns,cuticles, underneath eyes at night…and the list goes on and on. We live with Aquaphor in every room of our home, purse, car, school bag, overnight bag…can you tell we like this incredible product? We could be advertisers for all of it’s amazing uses. It does not burn, sting, or hurt…only heal!
I hope you have enjoyed checking out some of my favorite products. I had a blast sharing them with you!
