Skin Care & Beauty Products 2016 {Updated List}

makeup_brushesIt’s been about a year, so it seems like an update might be in order! 😉 Not much has changed. I’ve tried a couple new things, but mostly just stuck to the same products. 

I continue to use the EWG’s Skin Deep data base to check products before I use them. Just because a product is free of things I’m allergic, doesn’t mean it’s free of harmful ingredients. 

I’ve still not found a foundation I’m happy with. I have both the Honeybee Gardens powder and the Bare Minerals Original Powder. The Honeybee Gardens one might have made me itchy when I used it repeatedly. And the Bare Minerals I haven’t used enough times to really tell. As a result, I rarely wear makeup. I’d like to try and be braver. But really, it’s not that important in life… It’s just nice to have the option.
