Favorite beauty stuff.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I think it would be interesting and fun for us girly girls (or beauty-concious men) to share our favorite beauty products. I myself am a product junkie, but I do have some old stand-bys.

Shampoo & Conditioner- Pantene Pro V Daily Moisture Renewal shampoo and conditioner.
Facial Cleanser-Cetaphil Gentle Facial Cleanser.
Facial Moisturizer- Olay Complete with SPF 15 during the day, Nivea Cream (yes, the stinky one in the blue tin) at night...I smmmeeaaarrrrrrr this on at night.
Shower Gel/Soap- I LOVE Bath & Body Works shower gels...but when I need to get el-cheapo, I'm digging on SoftSoap's Pomegranite & Mango Body Wash.
Body Lotion- Nivea Enriched Body Lotion, Bath and Body Works (love Moonlight Path), Tutti Dolce's Creme Brulee body butter.
Makeup- A bit of powder over my moisturizer, mascara, and clear lip gloss (Kiehl's #1 lip balm).

Let's here how the rest of you stay lovely!!! Hey, some of us have to work harder than others!!!

I don't use anything exciting. I will say though that witch hazel is the best toner ever. (keep it away from the kitties though!).
I love Suave body wash, I have used the Sweet Pea and Violet one for a long time now. Suave and Dove are my favorites, being poor and whatnot, but they work just as well as the products they knock off.

My one splurge is the Aveda chapstick. It's worth every penny.

hair:dove product line
face:nivea or bore

Not wearing as much makeup as i did when i was a teenager. I find a good eyebrow wax, some mascara and a little eye liner is enough and powder my nose every now and then is good enough

Brief story.
When I was around 15 my Mother took me to the cosmetic counter in our department store and began teaching me about Clinique products- this would have been around 1969.

I have used Clinique products all my like (just skin care, not makeup) and honestly- I'm 52 and spend an extraordinary amount of time in the sun and I haven't a wrinkle yet. I don't have crows feet, or frown lines- nothing, and I very rarely use any sunscreen.
I can sometimes see where wrinkles will be, but am remarkably well preserved.

So in my case at least, I have found Clinique really effective.

I love The Body Shop "Body Butter" I have all the scents.
For makeup I use Bare Minerals. Love it!
Suave shampoo, just as good as Pantaine to me.
I really like Victorias Secrect Body spray in Pear (on days that I don't use the Body Butter of course!)

I always use cheap products.
I use just a basic pink eyeshadow (from dollar store or walmart ) and if I'm feeling froggy I will wear a shimmery white eyeshadow.
A mauve blush (dollar store again)
Revelon black eyeliner
No lipstick
and Coty loose powder foundation.

I dont care for liquid foundations. They make me feel "painted"
I also don't use mascara.

I'm the laziest person when it comes to washing my face. Most of the time I'm too tired to wash off my makeup before bed. And Dh wonders why my pillow looks like the Mary-Kay lady blew up on it?

My mom bought me a whole line of expensive face washes and lotions and stuff... I don't use em and I'm lucky, I don't breakout much...
I use Palmer's Cocoa Butter lotion on my face EVERY day too

Edit: I use NOTHING but Aussie Hair Products!

Hair - John Frieda's Brilliant Brunette Shampoo, Conditioner and Mousse (I love the smell of these products!!)
Body - Softsoap's Pure Cashmere Body Wash (Again, the scent is heavenly) and Shower-To-Shower Bath Powder's Fresh Scent
Face - No makeup, EVER. Noxema's Facial Cleansing Discs, Arbonne's Daily Moisturizer
Fragrance - Nettie Rubenstein's Odalisque

With the exception of not being able to wear makeup (I have rosacea and it irritates my skin to wear any cosmetics) I am such a Barbie Doll kind of girl!

I am a Noxema junkie. My mother swore by it and I have used it since I was 12 or so, everyday. I leave it on until it dries out. I think I've had a total of 7 zits my entire life. My mom can remember only having 3.
