Men will never understand the deep abiding love a woman can feel for a really good moisturizer. Sometimes finding the right beauty product -- that does just the trick -- is like finding gold. And once you do find your perfect arsenal of cosmetics, you’ll become a loyal fan. Because sharing is caring, we put together a list of the beauty products that we just couldn’t live without.
Moisturizers We Can’t Live Without
Lindsey J: Firming Night Cream with Pomegranate By The Body Shop -- it's the only night time moisturizer I've found that does not make me break out and really makes my skin appear smooth, hydrated and reduces fine lines.
Beth: Dior Tinted Moisturizer. I always look fresh, it has excellent coverage, and it doesn’t feel cakey.
Amanda: Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Moisture SPF 20. It makes your face look instantly more refreshed and it's never too early to start fighting wrinkles.
Our Favorite Toners
Lindsey Tewell: I LOVE Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato toner. It’s the best toner I have found and I really like that it uses natural ingredients. When I use it every day it works better for me then a blemish soap, I have much clearer skin.
Brook: I don't really wear make-up. However, I love Dove unscented bar soap for sensitive skin. It's the only thing I use to wash my face. My skin is really sensitive, so I like to keep it simple.
Serena: I love Biore triple action astringent. It cleans and minimizes pores while also reducing shine.
Jessica: Oil of Olay toner, because it makes my face feel extra clean before I moisturize and it's alcohol-free.
Lindsey D: Lancome Hypnose mascara. It makes my lashes look so long and full -- the before and after is night and day!
Amanda: Although I've yet to find a holy grail, oh-my-gosh-you-look-like-you're-wearing-fake-lashes mascara, I have gone through a lot of different brands trying to find it. My current favorite is Smashbox's Full Exposure. It has a full brush, smooth formula, and I haven't run into any problems with clumping. If its $20 price tag is a bit more than you want to spend, Maybelline Lash Stiletto remains my drugstore favorite.
Our Favorite Face Wash
Erika: Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash -- all natural, high-quality ingredients means my face stays smooth and clean with very minimal product required to take off the day's dirt and makeup.
Serena: Clinique Face Soap is my must have face wash. It keeps my skin clear and squeaky clean.
