Daily and Weekly Routines!

I love finding out about new products - and testing to see how they work! But I also have my few staples that I use every single day and each week. They make up the base of my beauty routine. I never think of replacing these! Here are my basics and why I love them!


I love this oil free Neutrogena face lotion. I tend to have oily skin on my face, so I don't want too much moisturizer to make it even worse. This does the trick! I can still give my skin the moisture it needs, but without creating that shiny look on my face after applying makeup!


This Mary Kay eye makeup remover works great for the sensitive skin around my eyes. It takes all of my eye makeup off and does it gently. And an added plus is that a little goes a long way. These bottles last forever! Helpful hint - shake up well before use.


This matte lip color in "Nearly Nude" from elf has become my go-to lip color. It is a great shade for my skin tone. It goes on easy and stays a while (not all day, but I keep it in my bag if I want to reapply). And its a bonus that its only $3!


I use this deep conditioner once a week. I like all "It's a 10" products, but this is by far my favorite. I can deep condition without leaving my hair greasy. This is a must because I only wash my hair every other day. It gives my hair all the extra moisture it needs!


I use hairspray and root lifting mousse frequently, as well as leave in conditioner and dry shampoo. I don't like the products to build up in my hair for weeks. I use Neutrogena anti-residue shampoo once a week. It strips your hair of all those products you put in so you can start fresh. I shampoo with this and then use my normal conditioner. I don't shampoo twice (with this and my regular shampoo). My hair is always so soft and manageable after using this!

What are your stable products that you'll never change?

    1. I do really like it and I will be trying it in others colors. That being said, it IS a $3 lip color. You do have to reapply throughout the day. I find if I put on a clear base first (even just a thin layer of Chapstick) it will stay on longer. I don't consider it too drying.

      I hope this helps!

  3. These are such great products! I must be living under a rock because I had no idea Neutrogena made shampoo, I will have to try that out! One of my favorite products of all time that I wouldn't change is the Cetaphil Face Wash

  4. I really like to hear about different products other girls, I've never used Neutrogena moisturizer but I've heard good things about it. My staple product is this moisturizer brand Cures, the woman who gives me a facial recommended it and I love it.
