This past year, I switched to Rodan + Fields. If you're anything like me, you have at least five friends who sell R+F. I had tried a bit here and there. And then my friend Laura let me try a regimen. I use Soothe and it has made a world of difference for the redness on my skin. It's even helped with some sunspots! And it gives me a sunscreen as part of the regimen so it's one less thing to think about, which is huge for me.
I've cut back on washing my hair to twice a week. Second or third day hair tends to be best for me anyway. Still, day one hair was frizzy and I was unhappy with it. While randomly looking for products at CVS one day I talked to a woman who used this It's a 10 product. She said all of her friends did too. It was a little more than I'd normally spend, especially on a product I hadn't tested already. But I went out on a limb and tried it. And it's a winner. It's a good leave in condtioner, helps detangle, and tames the frizzies better than most things I've found (except perhaps my hairdresser. She rocks!). I also fell for this Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask after getting it in an Influenster box. It makes such a difference!
All of that said, I still use a few makeup products somewhat regularly. Although my face is most often naked, I love these products when I need a little something. I keep the Pixie out and use it on my cheeks and sometimes lips for color. I also love love love Dr. Jart's BB Cream. It's got a good sheer coverage but still helps disguise some of my skin imperfections. And that chubby stick is a classic. It feels so creamy on and is just the right color to add a little something.
