Products I'm Loving Right Now

Do you have certain products that you just love? Products that make your life better or easier? Well I was thinking the other day about all the things I use throughout the day and there are a few of them that I looove and would be so sad if they went away.

1. MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine Spray

My hair dresser introduced this to me about a year ago with promises that it would make my hair so soft, silky, and shiny. Being the sucker that I am I bought it and let me tell you - he was not kidding! Since I color my hair it needs all the addittional moisiture it can get and this helps me achive the softness I desire without getting oily. 
2.  Tigi Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo 

 I was very skeptical when I first heard about dry shampoo - I have really thick hair and it tends to get oily/dirty pretty quickly and I knew this wouldn't work. I tried several brands and they left my hair feeling sticky and heavy at the end of the day. But then I tried this brand, and oh my - I'm in love! It's perfect for the days I wake up too late to wash my hair, or if I just need a little refresher after a long day at work before heading out to dinner or to meet up with friends.  Just spray it into my roots, and wa-la - fresh hair! It reminds me of when my mom used to put baby powder in my hair when I was growing up. Your mom didn't do that to you? Oh - well, moving on! 

3.  AcneFree Purifying Cleanser

Acne? What? I'm not 17 anymore! Well, I may not be 17 but my skin sure isn't aware of that! I thought I had grown up and could move onto a gentle cleanser, but one day I looked in the mirror at one of those places that has SUPER bright floresent lights- you know the ones... the ones that show EVERY. BLEMISH.YOU.HAVE.ON.YOUR.FACE and realized that I needed something to help bust up the junk, if you will.  Well, the word acne cleanser had me flashing back to the bleached pillow cases, t-shirts, and towels of high school and college, but this facewash does not do that at all. It has benzoyl peroxide, and gets the funk out, but without bleaching everything it comes in contact with. I wash my face with this in the shower in the morning and still use a gentle cleanser at night. 

 4.  Clarisonic

My quest for clear, even, soft skin led me to this little miracle worker. I cannot sing it's praises enough - I actually look forward to washing my face and sloughing off the day. It runs for 60 seconds and gets rid of the dead skin cells, make up, and dirt that has caked on your face all day. The texture of my skin has improved so much since I began using it. I have the Mia, which is what is pictured here. It has one speed and is a little smaller than its sister Clarisonic Pro. The Pro has multiple speeds and a body brush that attaches to scrub your body.  You can't go wrong with either one. 

 5.  Philosophy: Falling In Love 

 I am almost out of this and it makes me want to cry since I do not know when I will be able to get more. I bought this last year before our wedding because I wanted to smell gooooood on our honeymoon.  And boy oh boy did I - well I think I did anyway.  I love this scent because it's soft, subtle, and fresh. I don't like getting out of the shower and feeling like I've bathed in perfume, but I do like to smell nice. Philosophy found the perfect balance with this scent. I bought the LARGE bottles of both body wash and lotion almost a year ago. I ran out of the body wash this past summer but I'm still using the lotion. It lasts and lasts. 

Okay so I probably have more but those would be my top 5 right now.  What products do you have that you're loving?

I love my Clarisonic...I use it with my Philosophy cleanser {Purity}. I love Falling in Love as well. Amazing Grace is my scent, but I don't use it as often anymore.

I had to dig hard to comment on this one since the only products I get to use are Johnson&Johnson (shampoo, lotion, and powder) right now! haha

Mary Kay Microderm Abrasion....
Scrubs off all the nasty and then you apply the vitamin. My skin can breathe immediately.

Big&Sexy Root Pump

And Rimmel Steel Gray Nail Polish.
Does this count as a product?
