This I Know for SURE!

It's Show us Your Life Friday over at Kelly's blog, and today's topic is Beauty product tips...I'm in my element here....not because I'm Miss America or anything....just because I love taking care of myself!


Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner




Skin Care Regimen/Make-up:
EVERY lady should have one. I could hop on a soap box about this one, but I won't. I will say that to not properly cleanse and moisturize your face is asking for wrinkles, blemishes...NO BUENO. Yes, it's a pain in the neck, but so very important! I use Mary Kay TimeWise products. They work for me, and I think I look pretty young for my age (29)! I also use MK make-up!




I've always LOVED wearing make-up. I can remember begging my Mom when I was like 8 to let me wear lipstick...lol! Of course she didn't allow me to wear it until I was in the 9th grade (powder and gloss), BUT, funny story, in the 8th grade, I snuck and put on powder and lipstick for my 8th grade pictures. I totally didn't think about the fact that my parents would eventually SEE the pictures, AND the make-up...can you tell that I wasn't a very good sneak?

I ALWAYS wash my face before going to bed, and in the morning. I NEVER go to bed with make-up on my face! Yes, I use ALL of the above products!


Hair:
I.love.my.CHI! I don't know what I would do without it. I recently discovered that the Farouk plant is literally right down the street from my job/house! How cool is that?! I love how silky the CHI leaves my hair. I also use the CHI oil on my hair to help protect it from the heat.


For my shampoo/conditioner duo, I use Organix Teatree Mint. It smells so good....and minty! I can't help but smell my hair...don't judge me peeps! (I get mine from Ulta)
Body:
I have very dry skin, so unfortunately, I can't use lots of smelly BBW products. For shower gel I use Oil of Olay Moisturizing Winter Relief Body Wash. It has a light vanilla scent, which I love, and it really moisturizes my skin! I just have sensitive skin, and highly fragrant products mess me up! I like to keep my regime simple as possible.

Manicures/Pedicures/Waxing:
Self explanatory. I use OPI nail products! My favorite colors are Bubble Bath and Cherry Blossom. I've also recently discovered OPI Chip Skip! After what seems like forever, I no longer wear acrylic nails. I now prefer a fresh manicured look, so Chip Skip is my friend! It prolongs the polish for about 2 weeks! Definitely worth the $12 investment!

Oh! and those eyebrows....gotta keep those waxed! I'mlooking at trying threading one day....I'll let you know how that goes!
