Ms. Winfrey isn't the only one that has some favorite things. I do have to break it to you that all of my 12 readers will not be receiving the products that I am pimping out.
December in Kansas City has been pretty mild. There have even been several days in the mid 50's.
I am well aware that this is going to end quickly, and if our winter is anything like last year, get ready for some serious bitching and whining courtesy of yours truly.
Taking care of one's skin during the winter in the midwest is no joke. Here are some things that save me during Jan/Feb.
Stridex?? Yes, Stridex. However, this isn't for your zitty face. This, my sweets, is for your feets.
Dr. wizard of Oz says if you have dry, cracked feet, swipe 'em with a stridex pad before bed, and finish with a super moisturizing shea butter, and wake up to new toes. It works. Seriously-this tag team has saved my feet, no joke.
One of the best shea butters ev-ah.
I know she isn't cheap, but the Clarisonic brush is worth every penny. My face never gets flaky anymore, pores are clearer, and my moisturizer is more effective.
I fell in love with this product 10 years ago when I worked at Barney's. If you don't have good balance, you might break your head open in the shower, as all of the oils makes the floor crazy slippery---but hey, your skin will feel like buttah.
I apologize for posting yet another large ticket item, but this stuff truly is the bees knees. You don't have to use it every night..alternate it with something more affordable. Again, worth every stinking cent.
I really did save the best for last. And it won't empty your Goyard wallet (another of my favorite things, but that's another post). Aquaphor by Eucerin has transformed my lips. I mean it. My lips, for whatever reason, are dry all year....until I discovered this. I have tried everything...even the $45 La Mer lip balm that Mr. Micheal Kors is obsessed with, and it didn't do nearly as good of a job as my beloved Aquaphor. You can also use it on dry patches, cuticles, etc. My $7 tube that I bought in August isn't even close to being half way gone.
Have any obsessions for your skin???
