Tried + True

When it comes to beauty, I'm a pretty simple girl. But there are some things I refuse to live without...and I'm always on the lookout for great new products to try. So here comes my new Tried + True series, where some of my favorite people, friends, and bloggers will be sharing their essential beauty secrets. Here are some of my secret weapons:

When it comes to haircare, I'm a hardcore B&B fan. They don't make a single product I don't absolutely love. Two of my favorites are the all-purpose Tonic Lotion, and the Surf Spray--for those days you need a little help achieving that sexy/beachy/windswept look.

Besides the mood-swings, hot-flashes and constant nausea, all this fertility stuff has made my skin unbearable. The only thing that will keep it remotely in check is Proactiv. Dumb infomercials or not, it really works.

I'm too fickle to have a signature scent; but this perfume may just make me a one-fragarance kind of girl.

My poor, poor, neglected feet. This stuff is nothing short of miraculous.

Running late? Always. But I will NOT leave the house without eyeliner or mascara. I've been hooked on this one since the day it came out. Nothing beats a good, cheap mascara.

Another must: well-groomed brows. I always turn to these trusty tweezers by brow guru Anastasia. They're absolutely worth every penny.

That's it for the first installment of Tried + True. Stay tuned for more picks from my exciting list of guest bloggers.

Have I ever told you what great taste you have? I love B&B and they now sell it at Target... Love, Em

Ooh I love this post---what a great idea for a series Chris! I'm such a product junkie---I could talk about this stuff for hours, and something tells me that you could too!

I have 'temperamental' skin too---and I make it even worse by touching it when I'm distracted, which apparently makes break-outs worse. I've really been loving Clinique lately though---they make the only moisturizer that seems to calm things down without making me break out.

And I've GOT to give the Trish perfume a smell!
