8 Products That Made Us Believers
It may go against popular opinion, but I’m retiring my Clarisonic for this face scrub from Goldfaden MD ($75, goldfadenmd.com). It uses ruby crystals to polish away dead skin cells, so pores are reduced in size and fine lines are faded. Really, I just love how soft my skin feels after using it.
Erase The Evidence Of Acne
I’m constantly trying new mascaras in search for “the one.” While many of the more expensive brands have left me disappointed, I was pleasantly surprised by this one ($20, itcosmetics.com). The wand has a standard cone shape but with an added ball at the end that is used to define the inner lashes that are so hard to reach. The grip and formula of this mascara makes each lash stand out and say “Hello!” Best of all, it’s from a cruelty-free brand.Instant Makeover: Mascara That Creates A Cat Eye
Toning is the easiest step to skip in the skin care routine, but I actually look forward to using this Age Management Balancer ($95, shoplaprairie.com). It makes sure your skin is fully clean by removing any makeup or impurities left behind by face wash and lightly exfoliates. What’s best about this toner is it has that signature La Prairie smell I love so much.How To Treat Combination Skin, Naturally
I’m a sucker for bath products as it’s my preferred way to relax when at home. When I smelled The Comforter bubbler ($10.95, lushusa.com), I knew I had to have it. I like to drop the whole thing into hot bath water and watch it go to work. It turns the water pink and creamy and makes my bathroom smell amazing. I may just need a lifetime supply of these bad boys.

I think almost every woman can agree that one of the hardest things is finding a good mascara ($32, sephora.com). No formula or wand works quite like the other. The first time I swiped it, I was hooked. It lengthens, volumizes and doesn’t clump when I add three or four coats until my lashes are just right.
