Essence's Top 10 All-Time Faves

Essence magazine recently released a list of their top 10 all-time favorite beauty products, and guess which one of my faves showed up at the top of the list? Yep, you guessed it, Vaseline! Who needs to spend thousands on Botox and Restylane when you can use a $5.00 jar of Vaseline? I know some of you are anti-petroleum, but Vaseline has been a beauty secret that my family has adhered to for years. I love to use just a dab around my eyes at night to lock in moisture and prevent those nasty crow's feet from forming.

Here are the rest of Essence's Faves as featured on page 31 of the January 2010 issue:
  1. Vaseline (Petroleum Jelly)
  2. Fashion Fair (Cosmetics Pressed Powder)
  3. Luster's Pink (Original Oil Moisturizer)
  4. Palmer's (Cocoa Butter Formula Lotion)
  5. Alberto VO5 (Hot Oil Weekly Intense Conditioning Treatment)
  6. Avon (Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil)
  7. Gold N Hot (1/2" Ceramic Curling Iron)
  8. Isoplus (Oil Sheen Hair Spray)
  9. Dove (Beauty Bar)
  10. MAC (Lip pencil in Chestnut)

I absolutely swear by Vaseline after a shower or bath. Great for smoothing and softening the feet and skin. And I have been known to put it on my face (especially in the winter). It doesn't over oil my face it just feels moisturized!

I LOVE only Dove Soap. It's gentle enough for my kiddo and for use on my face. I actually use it to take off my makeup and clean my face with daily. Since I started doing that I don't break out anymore. Maybe hear and there every once and a while though.

Oh and MAC lip pencil in Chestnut, is so wonderful. It's the first one I ever bought, years ago and I still use it.
