recently did a fun post
about the top 10 best-selling beauty products according to Glamour
magazine, and then asked her readers to share theirs. It got me thinking about my own list, which is constantly evolving—I like to try new things and mix it up! I've also been trending towards organic, all-natural products for things like shampoo, body wash, and lotion (working my way up to makeup on that front).
Here's my current Top 10 List
, share yours in the comments:
1. Nature's Gate Tea Tree Calming Shampoo and Conditioner:
Hydrating, all-natural formulas have even made my hairdresser take note. This is my favorite fragrance from the Nature's Path line, the other ones smell a tad too hippie. I get this in the "natural/organic" aisle of my local grocery store.
2. L'Occitane en Provence Honey & Lemon Foaming Jelly:
I received a bottle of this as a gift, and while it has a really pungent odor, I love the color, consistency and even the fragrance. Makes me feel French.
3. Kiss My Face Olive/Aloe Natural Moisturizer
Yes, I switched from Clinique a couple weeks ago and my skin has never looked better. (There was nothing wrong with my Clinique lotion, I was just bored and ready for a change.) I usually apply two light coats of Kiss My Face's rich formula, which takes a few seconds to be absorbed, but is in no way greasy or heavy. Love the fact that it's virtually fragrance free, and comes in a big bottle with a convenient pump dispenser.
4. Alba Sea Algae Enzyme Facial Scrub:
With a fresh scent reminiscent of a high-end spa, this fine-grit facial scrub is gentle enough for every day use. You can really work this onto your skin to remove dead skin without drying it out, which is what I love about this stuff. I buy mine at Target on sale, and it's also available at Whole Foods (I think).
5. Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer, Blush & Eye Shadow
in Waikiki Strip/Peachy Glow Bronzer: I have a feeling this isn't the healthiest product for my skin (which tends to get red if I rub my face after applying--oops!) but it gives my pale complexion a seriously gorgeous glow. When I use this one up, I'm going to try the Physicians Formula organic bronzer
