My Favorite Products!

Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Today's Wednesday, so only 2 more days until the weekend...YAY!

Lately I've found some great products, that I can't help but share with you here they are!

1. Banana Boat Deep Tanning Oil
I absolutely love this stuff! I've actually been using this for several years now, and it never fails to give me a great tan. And, actually, I just came in from using this for less than 30 minutes and already have great color. (NMC and I are headed to Florida in September, so I have to start now...right..?) It doesn't contain any sunscreen though, so if you use it, please be careful!  You can pick it up at Wal-Mart for around $8.

2. Kiss My Face Moisture Shave
Ok, so as you can see, this is actually marketed towards men for facial shaving. NMC picked some up at a local health food store to try when we found out that using canned shaving cream actually dries out your skin and can have harmful ingredients in it. Also, he "wet shaves" which means he uses a bowl, shaving cream or shaving soap, and a shaving brush to lather it up and a safety razor to shave with (I think it's very intriguing!). Anyways, he told me how well it worked, and I could tell by how smooth his face was, so I tried some and...WHOA! My legs have never been smoother. You just kind of smooth it over your legs and rub it around so it lathers a bit.  The best part about it, is that it is all natural, and the 11 oz. pump bottle lasts for a long time! You can pick it up at most health food stores for around $9. We have the unscented, but the Key Lime is AH-mazing!

3. L.A. Colors "Color Craze" Nail Polish in Electric Charge
By now I think y'all know I love pink nail polish in any shade imaginable, so when I saw this hot pink polish at the...Dollar Tree(!!!) I had to get it. I couldn't find my bottle, so this is a picture I found on the web of the packaging and everything. This stuff really is great, I can't believe it only cost a dollar. It takes 2 coats, but it lasts a long time, especially when you put a top coat over it. It's the polish I'm wearing in the tanning oil picture above, and it's a bit brighter in real life. So next time you're at the Dollar Tree, cruise down the beauty isle, and check out all the great colors they have!

4. Nail Magic Nail Hardener
For my birthday, which was in February, my SIL, Katy, took me to get my nails done. I had never gotten gel nails, or any type of fake nail for that matter, because my nails have always been really nice and strong. My mom always told me never to get them, and I should have listened! Long story short, here we are in May, and my nails are finally getting over having them on. Anyways, when Katy's fakes started coming off, we went over to Sally's and the sales lady recommended Nail Magic, and boy am I glad she did! It really works! I put it on before my polish every time I paint my nails and my nails are pretty much back to how they used to be. Phew! Like I said, we got it at Sally's and it was about $8.

5. Clean and Clear Oil Free Foaming Facial Cleanser
I have a hard time with my face sometimes. Sometimes it is perfectly clear, and then other times it has little bumps all over it. I have no idea why it does it, but it does, and I'm left to find a solution. I've tried lots of different things, but have found that a simple facial cleanser works well for me. I picked this up a few weeks ago, and so far, I'm happy with the results. I have oily skin, so it's a plus that the cleanser is oil free. IF you need a gentle cleanser, I recommend this! You can pick it up for about $5 just about anywhere.

P.S. Do any of y'all use Proactive or a kit like that? Does it work for you? What facial routine works best for you? I'd love to know, and get some advice!

Do any of you ladies share the same favorite products? What are some you can't live without?
