If your are anything like me than you fully enjoy buying a brand new skin care product.  It’s like buying magic in a jar.  At least all that it promises to do puts it in the magic category.  However, not all products are as good as they sound.  And not all are created equally.  This is what I currently have on my little beauty tray:
Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean 
This a really nice mild cleanser that always does this trick.  I like to try new cleansers but always seem to come back to this one.
Estee Lauder DayWear Plus
A lovely cucumber smell and a great consistency for a day cream.  Like the cleanser, I always come back to this moisturizer.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
A great anti-aging serum
Creme de la Mer
This is truly supposed to be magic in a jar.  And maybe I am crazy, but it just hasn’t been magic for me.  This product is very much an indulgence and was given to me as a gift.  It is definitely out of my price range.  So there is a slight chance I have been using it to scarcely (in order to prolong it’s life) to see proper results.
la Mer Moisturizing Lotion
Now this one I love…Adore, actually.  It is a lighter fare than the other and just feels like silk on your skin.  I don’t know how I am going to manage another bottle of this but where there is a will there is way (maybe).
la Mer Eye Concentrate
This is by far my favorite eye cream.  I’m sure you wouldn’t doubt it.  A little goes a very long way.  The consistency is perfect and it comes with a little silver tipped applicator that helps cool the skin and just feels like some sort of mini spa treatment.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
I came across this spot acne treatment in the back of some magazine when I was in high school.  I was looking for some magic to take away some ugly pimples and this sounded like it would do the trick and it really did.  I just reacquainted myself with the product recently to attack some ugly spots again.  This can be found online and at Nordstrom’s.
Amore Pacific Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System
This is one of my absolute new favorites.  It is a mist spray that contains no water, actually.    It is made from bamboo sap which is also known as “divine water.”  It has the most lovely smell and makes your skin feel so hydrated.  I like to spray my cheeks after blush for that dewy look.
Vichy Thermal Spa Water
About a year ago I came across all of these great European/French lines at CVS (don’t know if they still carry them?) and picked up this spa water spray that is a great moisture spritz for your face.  I love a little refresher like this and it is full of minerals that are said to soothe the skin.
Bobbi Brown Eye Makeup Remover
I usually use the Estee Lauder one but thought I’d try something new.  I just might like this one a little more but will probably switch back as it is a little more cost effective.
Bobbi Brown Bath Fragrance
This is by far my favorite perfume and has been for quite awhile.  A lot of perfumes bother me and are just too heavy.  This one is clean, fresh and perfect in every way.  Another favorite of mine is Amazing Grace by Philosophy.
