Favorite Products

via the 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic

A few of my absolute favorite things....

I'm all about using as many multi-use products at this stage of my life and there are several listed on my MUST-HAVE product list:

1. Madara Tinting Fluid in Moon Flower. It does double duty: Moisturize and cover. The perfect light foundation.

2. Elixery Lipstick in Pixie. No lead in THIS lipstick brand! Pixie is the perfect color for my skin tone and its creaminess hydrates perfectly.

3.  I also use the Kinky Curly Knot Today as a conditioner/leave-in as well. It eliminates frizz, hydrates and holds without stickiness or stiffness.

4.  Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. It only took me 20+ years to find the perfect haircare brand for my wavy hair and I have used it for the last 4 years.

5. Phytoceane Self-Tanning Gel - The best. Hands down.

6. shhh. I never travel without it. It is the only shaving product I use, I occasionally use it as a shampoo, especially when traveling, and I bathe with it 75% of the time. (when I'm not testing other shower products). There are no TSA size restrictions for a solid and there is also no fear of spillage or leaking in luggage or gym bag.

7. Vie Collection Eye Correction Cream. The best eye cream I have ever found and have used it for 14 years. It combats puffiness, dark circles and has the most magnificent anti-aging properties I have found. I use it around my lips as well.

8. Olivia Garden Bamboo Paddle Brush. Made from sustainable bamboo, this paddle brush is perfect for drying my thick hair when a smoother look is preferred.

9. The Hot Sock
The best hair diffuser ever! Its "spongy" texture makes it easy for both travel and home use. (Most diffusers are awkward for travel because they are made from hard plastic.)

Now that spring is here, I'm exfoliating my body more to prepare for more revealing summer clothes and self-tanning products.

10. Merben Medium Sisal Body Brush
