Some of my favorite things!

I have extremely sensitive skin. Have all my life. Strong perfumes, and chemicals really can do a job on me. I had an episode about 7 years ago when my skin hived-up and was read and sore for 9 months. I really do not know what precipitated the extreme reaction, but it set me on a quest to find products that worked for me and didn't hurt!

I had been a faithful Clinique user since my teenage years. But as age came on, I wasn't happy with the way I looked. The liquid foundations were too heavy and the eye shadows just faded away. And mascara? To have such dry, sensitive skin, I have small eyes and mascara just melts and bleeds on my cheeks.

I decided to research my options for both a foundation and mascara. I was lucky in the cleansing and moisturizing. Cetaphil cleaner and moisturizing cream. They work for me.

For my foundation, I am a convert to bareMinerals. I love it! I love how it makes me look while wearing it and how my skin looks without it!


And as for mascara, the absolute best, the greatest, is Blinc:

Once applied, and set, this stuff stays put! Won't cry off, sweat off or melt off. Both of these products really live up to their hype.

I also have sensitive skin and LOVE i.d. bare minerals eyeshadow. It doesn't flake or smear... or fade!

I also have dry skin and have had great luck with California Baby Everyday Lotion. I use it on my face and body.

Thanks for the tips!
