some of my favorite beauty products.

Being a licensed Master Esthetician you would think I use all sorts of fancy products on my skin, you would be wrong.  I just don't have the budget for it right now. Instead I hit up the local Wal-Mart or Target for my beauty needs.

First up in my daily regime is face wash. Now, I have oily/acne prone skin so it is quite difficult to find a cleanser that really gets it clean, but doesn't overly dry it out. As of late I have been loving...

St. Ives Green Tea Cleanser
It is gentle yet effective. I use it at night to not only wash my face but to remove my eye make-up as well.

In the morning and any other time I feel I need a little extra cleaning I love to use a good scrub. They are so beneficial to glowing healthy skin and sloughing dead skin cells off. My go to scrub is.....

                   St. Ives Apricot Scrub
                   sigh...I just love it so.

Next up is moisturizer, this is a tough one for me. I have tried so many in the past and I am still on a mission to find the perfect one. The following is my criteria a good moisturizer must meet: an SPF of 30, oil-free, hypoallergenic, and noncomedogenic..which is a fancy word for it won't clog your pores. I recently added this moisturizer to my routine...

Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing Moisturizer
It met all of my criteria, plus it has vitamins A, C & E which are great for the skin. It has a nice light fragrance and it's silky smooth.

Well there you have it, the three staples in my bathroom. What are your go-to products to keep your skin clean, moisturized and looking radiant?
