Last week I did my annual post sharing what I found to be my best beauty buys from the past 12 months. Some are new products, some are just new to me. Many of you tell me you find the posts incredibly helpful, and I must say I also find them helpful when I read them on other blogs. This year, I decided to ask my favorite bloggers and fashion experts to share their favorite beauty product from 2013 and I must say their choices have made my shopping list a mile long! I was honored to have so many bloggers share their faves, I have broken it down into six editions; this one focuses on favorite skincare products.
“As a devotee of the oil cleansing method (OCM), I'm also a fan of serums and oils for keeping skin balanced. This year, I ponied up for this Vitamin C Active Moisture Serum by Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics. Yep, it's spendy. But BOY is it worth the price. This stuff has balanced my combination skin, eliminated several problematic dry patches, and helped even out my texture and tone. And a little goes a long way, so your dollars are well spent!
“L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum. I have never had a serum delivery such immediate results without fanfare. I have always struggled with the texture of my skin, trying every Clarisonic device and chemical exfoliant. Nothing has affected the surface of my skin like this product. It doesn't leave a film, fill pores, or color correct, but somehow it makes a big impact. There's only one application left in my bottle and I'm picking up another one ASAP!”
