The 25 Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without

In conjunction with my introductory post, “Get to Know Me“, I’d like to share some of my favorite products. This list includes old standbys, products I’m utterly faithful to, and new obsessions. Some are always in my stash, and some are an occasional splurge. But they are all items that I have purchased, used (or currently use), and love. Hope you find a new favorite!
