beauty routine…




This post is inspired by my friend Kayla, who recently shared her beauty routine…and now it's my turn! I call myself high maintenance (jokingly), but my beauty routine is fairly simple. I've been using many of these products since I was a teenager, and I'm proud to say my good habits (i.e. SPF daily) started early. So, voila…my favorite products and routine!


*I've used Cetaphil since I was a teenager, and it cleanses without irritating my sensitive skin.

*My grandmother used Oil of Olay and always reminded me to wear SPF everyday!

*I splurged on this "miracle cream" a few years ago, and now I'm hooked, in winter especially.

*My Mom has always used this Clinique makeup remover, and I've never found one I like better.



*I recently switched from Redken to Moroccon Oil, and I love the scent & shine!

*The only other hair product I use is hairspray, currently Pureology.



*A daily luxury for me is cleansing with Yves Delorme Provence bar soap…deee-licious!

*As soon as I get out of the shower I moisturize with Jergens-all over, every day.

*Lately I've been using Mama Mio Tummy Rub, to try and prevent pregnancy stretch marks!

*I don't wear much perfume, but I have a few favorites, including Tocca's Florence


Face (Make-up):

*With very fair, almost translucent skin, Cleu de Peau concealer is worth every penny.

*I feel naked without mascara, it's weird…my preference is Chanel.

*Out of my many glosses & lipsticks, my go to is Kiehl's tinted moisturizer.
