Update on my favorite beauty products...

So the past couple years I have posted my favorite products using a preset list.  I decided not to complete the whole list this year and instead name the products that I cannot replace!

Avalon Organics Vitamin C Refreshing Cleansing Gel.  I have posted about this facewash over and over.  I have been using it for over two years and usually I purchase it from Target.  I this it is the best facewash I've ever used - it smells like orange juice and doesn't leave my skin tight or dry.  It gently removes my makeup and doesn't burn my eyes.

Smashbox Concealer.  I'm really surprised by how much I like this.  It was an impulse buy at Sephora and I've already had to repurchase this product twice.  I love the brightening effect when I use it under the eyes.  I have used it on blemishes and it works well to counteract redness too.
 CoverGirl Lash Blast Fushion in Black.  This is great mascara - I think I just bought my 6th tube.  I cheated on this mascara once in the past year and I promptly went back to it.  It thickens my lashes and holds curl well.  The brush perfectly seperates lashes  - no clumping, and no weird spidery lashes.

Makeup For Ever Mat Velvet.  I just purchased my second bottle in Ivory.  This oil free formula doesn't clog my pores and it covers all my redness and imperfections.  When I use this I feel like my skin is as perfect as it can get.  Also I can dial up the coverage by using a brush or get a more natural finish with a sponge or my fingers.

 Kenra Platinum Silkening Drops.  This is a great product for shine and frizz control.  I use 3-4 pumps after I blow dry and before I use a curling iron or flat iron to help smooth out my hair.  I am on my third bottle and I usually buy it from Ulta.  Over the past 2-3 years I've noticed a lot of my hair stylists using this product and I understand why it is a favorite of the professionals.
Ole Henrickson Truth Serum Collagen Booster.  I'm not quite into anti-aging skin care yet but I use the 3 little miracles set from Ole Henrickson.  I'm on my third bottle of this product which I only use in the mornings after I wash my skin before I moisturize it.  This is a "try it" product.  I can't even explain how much better my skin looks when I use it,  more even, moisturized, and bright.  I haven't had a single  dry skin day this winter because of this product.  I've been using this product consistently for a year but I have used it before after getting a sample at Sephora.  It is my best "little miracle".
