Before we move too far into 2012, I wanted to revisit my favorite products of the past year. Below is a showcase of items for beauty, nail and skin care that have become essentials in my routine. You can click on the links below the photos to explore the full product reviews.
|Hard Candy Fox in a Box|
I use this Hard Candy blush and bronzer duo almost every day. Adding warmth and color to the skin year round, I love how this product helps to create subtle contouring on the cheeks and jaw line.
|Nubar: Freeze Dry|
Nubar Freeze Dry is an amazing treatment. It dries polishes hard in minutes. If you are struggling with a pesky formula that refuses to cure, Freeze Dry is up to the task. I utilize Freeze Dry for pedicures as well.
|Neutrogena: Norwegian Formula Hand Cream|
Neutrogena Hand Cream is an effective and affordable way to nourish and protect hands from winter dryness. It's a great drug store staple.
|The Skin Society: Miracle Lift|
If you want your skin to look fresher and more youthful, apply Miracle Lift as a daytime treatment.
|Mario Badescu: Cellufirm Moisturizer|
Mario Badescu Cellufirm Moisturizer provides deep hydration and adds a youthful fullness to the skin.
|Refinee: Nourishing Daily Cleanser|
Nourishing Daily Cleanser from Refinee hydrates as it gently sweeps away makeup and impurities. I especially love this cleanser during the warmer weather. It does a thorough job of removing sunscreen without causing redness or irritation. Perfect for ladies with sensitive or aging skin!
Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser is a joy to use. It's delectable citrus scent makes removing makeup in the evening much more pleasurable.

|Reviva Labs: Lindenflower Facial Spray|
|Reviva Labs: High Potency Collagen Serum|
Every year I seem to discover new favorites from Reviva Labs. My medicine cabinet houses
an assortment since I use at least one of their products daily. Their Lindenflower Facial
Spray is perfect after exercise to cleanse and freshen my face and neck. If your skin is dry,
you may want to try their Rosewater Facial Spray.
High Potency Collagen Serum assists in hydrating the skin and encouraging smoothness. I love
the results of this serum when applied under an evening moisturizer.
Have you ladies tried any of my 2012 favorites? What products have you discovered recently
that have become indispensable to your routine?
Happy painting, ladies!
