Skin Favorites May nail polish

I know this isn't my normal craft/card making post, but I wanted to share some of my beauty favs. I did some of my other favorites last year in 2011, and I wanted to give an update of those. I'll try and do this update of some of my favorite things every 5 or 6 months. I would love to hear what some of your favorite beauty items are. For this favorite update I am doing my Skin Favorites plus nail polish. If you love some of the same products I love please share with me what you love about them. Maybe someone out in the blog world is looking for that same type of product.

Now my Favorites from Left to Right are
Essie Barefoot in Blue
Essie Peach Daiquiri

I linked back to all products to see the description of each product and what it does.
My ratings
MB Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C
Feel: A-Mazing! I'm not just saying this. If feels great on the skin and it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy or oily. Overall: I have been using this product for a week now twice a day. I love how my skin looks, feels, and my complexion has really gotten better. I will purchase this again!!

MB Special Cucumber Lotion
Feel: At first it kinda had a little sting to it, but I think its from the Isopropyl Alcohol. This is a Toner. I got use to it. It feels great on skin. Easy to use. You don't have to use a lot. Overall: I have been using this for a week twice a day. My pores have shrunk a lot BIG PLUS!! I notice less break outs. I will purchase again!!

MB Strawberry Face Scrub
Feel: A-Mazing! the first time I used this I was a little nervous, cause of the strawberry seeds. I thought maybe it be really abrasive. It's not at all. It made my skin so soft and glowing. Very healthy looking. Overall: The smell is so yummy. Kinda makes you want to eat it..hehe, but I wouldn't. I use this twice a week. On Monday Night and Friday Morning. I will purchase again.

MB Drying Cream
Feel: Creamy. You apply this to a blemish. On the MB site it tells you to rub in an wear during the day. I have never tried that, but I use it at night on little pimples. It works great that way for me. The smell may not be for everyone, it's kinda a dirt/mud smell, but I like it. It's not a problem for me. Overall: I have been using this MB product for two years now. Washes off easy in the morning. This little tub goes a long way..I love it. I will purchase again.  If you have a stubborn pimple that you want to dry up at night this is a great product for that.

MB Drying Lotion
Feel: Stings a little bit, but after a couple seconds it goes away. You place this on a whiteheads and pimples. The smell is Whoa!, but goes away after drying. Overall: A-Mazing for zapping those mean ol' pimples..hehe. I use this at night on my stubborn big pimples. The kind that hurt. I am so happy I purchased this Drying lotion. Now my pimples go away within a night/day it's great. I will purchase again.

MK Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover
Feel: Soft. Makes my eye area really soft after using. Easy to use. Overall: I have been using this for two years now. I love this eye makeup remover. It removes my Benefit Bad Gal mascara like a breeze. I use mine on two toliet paper squares folded to wipe off eye makeup. Does a great job. Will purchase again.

Essie Polishes 
Barefoot in Blue- I won this polish from TOMS shoes for their One day without shoes. This color is so fun and looks great on. Not sure if Essie has this in their regular polish line, but I know when TOMS gave it away it was limited edition. Thanks TOMS..I love your comfy and great cause. Peach Daiquiri- This color is a FUN Summer color. It makes my feet look tan and they aren't. It's a fun Pink color. When you think of a peach and the pink color on the fuzz is about the color of this. I love it. I think this is in Essie's Spring or Summer line.

Disclaimer: All these products were purchased by me except for the Essie Barefoot in Blue polish. I won that from TOMS shoes. The Mario Badescu products were purchased at Ulta, Mary Kay thru my MK consultant, and Essie Peach Daiquiri polish from Target. The MB products were recommend for my skin type and concerns, by taking the survey on MB site. There are a couple products I haven't yet purchased on my list of recommend, but I will.

In a month I will come back an review the MB products that I have been using for a week now. I will say though just this week of use twice a day, I have notices a great difference in my skin. It's healthy looking and feels great. My random pimple here and there has been almost stopped. I get tiny little ones now. Which is fine for now. I always hated the big pimples that hurt. I know some of these products are $$, but they are worth it. For the longest time I was using drugstore products (*Nothing wrong with using drugstore products, I still do for some things) but my skin wasn't changing for good. It would end up oily during the day, and I would still have some dry spots. So I needed a change. I have tried MB before when I received some samples, I fell in love then. Not sure why I didn't just purchase after that. I guess I thought my other products were doing the job. I am happy with my purchase and will purchase again. 

Thanks for coming by reading my blog and my favorite products. Please feel free to ask me ?'s about any of them or if you have had experience with any of these products. What are your thoughts. :)

I'll  be back in a week with my reviews of my Influenster product reviews. I left out an extra product they sent it was the Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions. 

Hugs, Sheena
