Friday Favorites


I’m dedicating this post to all of the lovely products I use for my skin before I leave the house. It’s all about moisture, protection,and renewal. They are amazing and they make me feel amazing.

What I love about Neutrogena Body Oil is that it’s light, makes my skin soft and smooth, and it doesn’t feel like I have anything on my skin immediately after application. In the summer this is all I need, but in the winter, I like to add an extra layer of moisture. Nivea Smooth Sensation does the trick.



After I’ve washed my face with Neutrogena Pink Grapefruite Facewash, I follow it up with Alba Hibiscus Facial Toner to minimize my pores. It leaves my skin soft and smooth and ready for moisture. It doesn’t hurt that both of these products smell amazing!


I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten older, that my pores are more visible. Anyone else? I take a small dab of Peter Thomas Roth Moisturizer and a small dab of L’Oreal Youth Code Pore Vanisher and rub it all over my face and neck. I don’t like to feel like I have anything on my skin so this combo wins. Whatever moisturizer you put on your skin, always make sure that it includes SPF. Rain or shine, people.


I started using eye cream when I was young, age 20, thanks to my momma’s tip! I never leave the house without it on and I never go to bed without it on. I’ve used a variety of products over the last ten-ish years but I was introduced to  StriVectin back in August and I will never use anything else. It is on the $$ side but because you use so little of it at a time, it lasts. Plus, all the benefits make it well worth the money. I want to be a young lookin’ grandma some day. #amIright?


If you have dark circles under your eyes like me, then you know that concealer is your best friend. One day I had run out of my old concealer and I made a quick stop at CVS. I came across this godsend. Age rewind? Yes, please. Soft applicator? Yes, please. Cost under $10? YES. I will never buy another concealer again. It is considered the best drugstore concealer by Rank & Style so I am not alone in my opinion!


I polish and de-shine with POREfessional from Benefit. It’s quick and easy, and most importantly, doesn’t look like I have any ounce of powder on my face.


I finish off with Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Balm Coconut & Lime Pear and I’m ready to go. It hydrates my lips and smells amazing!

This takes me roughly 5 minutes and I leave the house feeling protected, moisturized, and young.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks favorites and always remember…

You are beautiful. (psst…pass it on)

    I’d like to also put a nod in for any Skinceuticals face care. I’ve been using the face wash, toner and moisturizer for the past three years, and couldn’t by happier! A little pricey, but soooo worth it 🙂

    I like Rhonda Allison best – my skin is so happy thanks to the face wash, toner and green tea serum : ) and then I use a super light moisturizer that Origins makes
