My Favorite Things From 2015: Beauty Edition

Oprah has her list of favorite things and now I have mine! Do you use a lot of the same products every day? I didn’t even realize that I had a My Favorite Things list until this week. So, I wanted to share them with you.

These are my 10 favorite beauty products that I use every single day. The list doesn’t have luxury products, but affordable items that you can find locally or online.

Why are My Favorite Things different from someone else’s list?

You are getting advice from someone like YOU, not a supermodel or a 18 year old!

Who am I?

I’m 49 years old, mother of 2 adult children, married 26 years, professional business woman and fun loving person!

Have fun with this list. Do you see anything that you like or want to try? Maybe you would like to share your list with me and others! I hope this list helps you select products that will suit YOU.

1- My Favorite Hair Spray

Freeze It Mega Freeze Hair Spray: I was a baton twirler in high school and college and my hair was a big deal to me! This was during the 1980’s when hot rollers and hair spray were serious staples! Do you remember the GREEN bottle of Miss Breck hair spray? It was the cat’s meow? Thankfully, hair spray has progressed and my favorite hairspray in 2015 is the Freeze It Mega Freeze Hair Spray.

2- My Favorite Hair Rollers

Calista Tools Ion Hot Rollers: As a child of the 1980’s, I LOVE my hot hair rollers. Today, most people use flat irons and I do on occasion. But, my “go to” styling tool is this set! Easy to use and great curls that hold! Durable and they heat super fast.

3- My Favorite Skin Care

Rodan + Fields Unblemish Power Pack: My skin tone and texture has changed because of using the Rodan + Fields products. I have actually received compliments on my skin! I would have NEVER had that happen 5 years ago. My adult acne is under control too.

4- My Favorite Perfume

Dream Angels Heavenly by Victoria’s Secret: This perfume has been a staple for many years. Unfortunately, it seems that Victoria’s Secret has discontinued this scent. Because some perfumes trigger migraines, I must be careful of the scent and Victoria’s Secret fragrances do NOT give me a migraine! There are times when I use perfume at home because I just want to feel better! A great fragrance will make you feel better and give you confidence.

5- My Favorite Beauty Tool

Rodan + Fields Macro Exfoliator: The #1 hindrence to better, more glowing skin is Dead Skin Cells! This beauty tool helps remove over 5 million dead skin cells in 5 minutes. I get glowing, smoother, more beautiful skin when I use this tool only 1 time a week. This Exfoliator is better than a facial with an aethesitician – at least in my experience. This is a MUST have (you can not use this tool on sensitive skin).

6- My Favorite Lipstick

Maybelline SuperStay 14 Hour Lipstick: This lipstick is my “go to” lipstick. I purchase lots of different brands, but always seem to return to the Maybelline Superstay. This lipstick will last through teaching a morning of university classes!

 

7- My Favorite Lip Balm

Lip Shield by Rodan + Fields: This lip shield goes beyond moisturization to provide protective skincare for your lips. I use this product multiple times a day and after meals too! The Lip Shield is like the swiss army knife for your lips. This lip balm hydrates, softens and protects with peptides, dimenthicone, shea butter, avocado, sunflower seed and Vitamins A, C and E.

8- My Favorite Mascara

Wash-Off Waterproof Mascara by Avon: This product delivers. It doesn’t clump, it goes on easily and it stays on. With oily skin, I have a problem if mascara coming off on my skin every day. I’ve tried every drug store brand and most premium brands of mascara and I continue to return to this product – Avon’s Wash-Off Waterproof Mascara.

9- My Favorite Eyebrow Pencil

Brow Definer Pencil by Mary Kay: My blonde eyebrows have always needed filling in with an eyebrow. At age 49, I need to fill in for other reasons! Never skip your eyebrows because they truly frame your entire face. And never keep your eyebrows in another era like the 1960’s – this will date you quicker than wearing a scrunchie!

 

10- My Favorite Mineral Powder

Mineral Peptide Powder by Rodan + Fields: With oily skin prone to breakouts, I’ve used all kinds of makeup from premium to drug store. The best mineral powder foundation is from Rodan + Fields. The mineral peptide powder does more than even skin tone, it protects your skin from environmental aggressors and has peptides to enhance your skin!

I had fun assembling and sharing My Favorite Things from 2015: Beauty Edition. Now, you tell me YOUR FAVORITE THINGS!
