The fabulous five

Beauty Buzz Product Reviews

Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo
“Can’t live without this little gem. I am a victim of my own mid-90s over-plucking and this powder helps hide the damage. You have to buy the double-ended slant brush to apply this because it doesn’t come with any sort of applicator.”

Bath and Body Works, Aromatherapy: Orange Ginger Smoothing Sugar Scrub
(They don’t make that many flavors anymore) I am sure this is something that most people have used for long periods of time but I am addicted now. I wait for the semi annual sales and purchase 3 or 4 at a time so they will last me all year. You don’t have to use this product in the bath because, who has time for a bath? It can be applied in the shower and works just as well. Just make sure you don’t kill yourself or spouse from falling because it will make your shower very slippery. This scrub is my relaxation. Your skin literally feels like silk and leaves your body feeling extremely smooth and even sexy, especially in the dry winter months. The price is $20 and this product will last for a couple of months. Love it.

Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion
“This is so much better than their other toners. It is alcohol-free and has salicylic acid which helps exfoliate your skin without drying it out. I love it!!!!”
–Amy, mom of 2

MAC Lipglass in “Oyster Girl”
“This shimmery, barely pinkish lip gloss makes every shade of lipstick prettier. I’ve bought at least 10 tubes.”
–Amy, mom of 2

“Silky Dirt” Shine & Define Crème by Jonathan
After I dry my hair, I rub a tiny bit of this between my fingers and then run them through my hair to help define the layers and style it. I love it because it’s not too sticky and never greasy. It’s a little bit pricey, but, since you only need a tiny dab per day, the tube seems to last forever. Haven’t found one I like better than this.
