Five brilliant products to get a beautiful winter glow

Happy Tuesday!

I don’t know about you but my skin is very sensitive and with the weather changing, my routines change.  I know products are different for everyone but these are my favorite and maybe they’ll make a difference for you too!

Brilliant product #1
Smashbox photo foundation primer

Primers help your foundation stay on longer but mostly, I think it’s a great extra dose of moisture for the cold winter months to add a layer between your skin and foundation.

Brilliant product #2

Weleda Facial Almond Oil

Took me forever to find the right product to give me that glow that I wanted. It’s seriously amazing. Doesn’t break me out and provides mega moisture.  I buy mine on Amazon but you may be able to find at organic and natural stores.

Brilliant product #3

Gradual color and they changed the smell, wahoo!  Much better.  Especially during holiday parties and events when you know pictures will be taken it’s nice to have a subtle hint of color.

Brilliant product #4:
Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo for Medium to Coarse Hair

On a photo shoot recently with a makeup artist I love and trust we were discussing my troubles of waxing, bleaching  and more oh my for unwanted facial hair (read: mustache.)  So after years of bleaching, waxing or threading (all too harsh, I’ve ended up with burns, breakouts and more- not sexy!) I tried this product and have been hooked ever since.  And mega saves money vs. other treatments.  (I cannot wax my own eyebrows- so I don’t take any chances there!)  But for $20, 10 minutes of in-home-embarrassment-only and at least 12 uses, you can’t go wrong!  It’s saved me hundreds of dollars (or will over time.)
Brilliant product #5 Clarisonic (since using it I have gotten “What are you using?” questions because my skin has that much improved.)

I love using this 2-3 times a week and wow, talk about a notice in dry skin disappearing!  Use the facial oil afterward. I use the sensitive skin brush heads (No clue if the brush heads are really that much different but I love mine so I’ll stick with it!)
