It’s Friday! I am linking up with Joy over at Sowell Life for my Friday Five. I was cleaning out my bathroom this week and had to decide what products stay and which were donated (to other product whores). Here are my top 5 beauty products I couldn’t part with.


1. {Rimmel London – ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara} You might remember, I reviewed this mascara a few weeks ago and it continues to be my favorite. It’s long lasting, stays in place AND it makes my lashes look pretty thick for a drug store mascara.

2. {E.l.f. Waterproof Eyeliner Pen When it comes to makeup I try to at least wear mascara and eyeliner, so I am always looking for new products. I picked this eyeliner up at Target for a whole $1 and I have not been disappointed. It is easy to apply and stayed put, plus it’s so damn cheap I can buy 5 and keep them stashed around the house, purse, work, etc. Since the tip is flat, you can go with a thick or thin line, but beware – it’s a hard tip, so use a gentle touch.

3. {Blissoma Solutions Peace Evening Facial Creme When HeadOn discontinued their headache stick, S. and I were panicking. We picked a few similar products from Amazon and I discovered Blissoma. The headache stick worked wonders and they always send us a sample of their Peace Evening Facial Creme which I am in love with. It’s a bit on the pricey side, so I use the samples sparingly on my sensitive Rosecea prone face. It smells amazing, is light and all natural.

4. {Aveeno Active Naturals BodyI can’t let go of a good body scrub, especially in the winter when I have icky skin. Aveeno is the recent scrub of choice but trust me, I have about 4 half used bottles of other scrubs. Aveeno is a great price, great smell and a gentle scrub.

5. {Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Multipurpose Ointment I think this is the magic potion that solves everything. I got this as a baby shower gift and realized it was an alternative to Vaseline (which I loathe). I used it a few times on Mike and I really like the smell. Plus a little goes a long way! Now I use it on my chapped winter nose, dry lips and scaly skin.

There you have it – my top 5 beauty products. What products can you not live without?
