Beauty Essentials - Everyday needs

As anyone who reads my blog regularly knows, I am in major purging mode. Part of this has been the clearing out of all things that are not "necessary". What exactly does that mean for me I'm not sure? Being a bit of a pack rat, necessity is always in the eyes of the one making the choice. Anyway, one of the things that I am trying to do, is clean out my obscenely large amount of beauty products. So here is the second installment of my beauty essentials.

With my sensitive and dry skin, Dove is the soap for me. I have used it for years. In the summer I use Ivory up at the lake, because it floats, but I love Dove. My whole family uses it. I find that oddly my ph balance in my body changes if I use other soap whenever I stray. Serves me right.Another staple for many years has been Cetaphil. Recommended by a dermatologist when I was in my teens, I love it, but even more I love the price. Available at the local drugstore and for a huge bottle is $15.99. Lasts forever and is uber gentle and fab. Apparently you can use it without water, but I never have. Favourite toothpaste - Sensodyne Pronamel. It apparently enhances the enamel in your teeth. My dentist, who I don't visit as often as I should, thinks that my teeth are great.
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream is so lovely. I have been using it for a number of years and really like it. I have been using eye cream since my mother gave me a bottle of Clinique eye cream when I was 13 years. I try and use it every night. Not very successful at it, but try.

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream LOVE THIS. it is so hydrating and great. I really like it. have been using it forever also. I started using it with the eye cream and it makes your skin feel great. mmmmm........

Cult classic is the Creme de Corps from Kiehl's. it is a great all over body cream that is totally luxurious and is a staple in my bathroom. I also know that it is a total cult classic in the world of beauty affictionados.

The newest and maybe one of the best additions to my beauty regime is a daily self tanner. Not one that makes me look like I spent a week in a tanning bed, but one that makes me look like I haven't spent all winter cooped up in a closet. I like the Olay one in the winter, because it has a decent moisturizer.

For my dry skin I've discovered Shielding Lotions which are very different from the usual skin protectants and barrier creams. The best selling Shielding Lotion in the States is Gloves in a Bottle and there is only one other product similar, Skin MD Natural in the UK. Both seem to work really well, so give then both a go and see which you prefer!
