When I gave myself permission to buy these beauty staples, I wondered why I had waited so long. Perhaps deep down I viewed them as luxuries or felt I wasn’t worth it. Whatever the reason, don’t be like me. You work hard and should reward yourself!
(A) Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Salicylic Acid
I started wearing this nightly and my face feels like silk. Officially, it claims to reduce redness, build collagen, unclog and diminish enlarged pores and exfoliate. I can attest that it does all of these things well without irritation.
(B) Mally’s Perfect Prep Eye Gel
I can thank EmilyNoel83 on YouTube for recommending this way back when she was broadcasting the news. It de-puffs your eyes like nobody’s business! As soon as my alarm goes off in the a.m., I apply this gel to both upper and lower lids to give it time to dry, then wash it off in the shower. Marvelous and refreshing!
(C) Mason Pearson Hair Brush Handy Bristle B3 Dark Ruby
Several years ago I removed my hair extensions for good, stopped coloring my hair and started using no-heat styling tricks in an effort to have the most healthy hair of my life. To reward myself for sticking to this regimen, I finally bought a Mason Pearson brush, something I’d wanted since childhood. It’s fabulous! Eliminates static, enhances shine and creates natural fullness and body without teasing. Is it worth the steep price? Definitely!
(D) 100% Genuine Silk Pillowcase
The very first time I bought a ‘silk’ pillowcase, I was duped into selecting a polyester fabric instead of the genuine article. Don’t be misled. I found this one from lovasilk.com where they carry 100% mulberry silk. Using this prevents the dreaded sheet-wrinkled-face and sharply curtails hair static and split ends.
(E) Philips Sonicare Electric Toothbrush
My skepticism was quickly replaced by buyer satisfaction when I realized this toothbrush does exactly what it promises. Seriously reduces tartar and buildup plus keeps gums healthy.
