my go-to products {tried, tested & true}

tried, tested and true
tried, tested and true by beautyparler on

I'm sure your aware by now that I try & review lots of beauty & skincare products. However, of the many I try only a few become my "dependable" products. Products that are tried, tested & true are my favourite products. I know that I can always fall back on the above products when my skin is acting up or when all else fails & I get bored of trying products only to realize that I've already achieved the look or skin I want. Obviously that doesn't stop me from continuing my reviews or buying products because I wouldn't be a beauty junkie would I? As there are countless amazing products out there & I'm always on the search for the next best thing. However, I know that when I just need a breather from reviews & not mess with a good thing I always have these beauties to count on.
Sebastian Potion 9 (haircare)
Almay Moisturizing Eye-Makeup Remover (note: this is oil stuff but I love it because it gets off all your eye makeup including waterproof mascara. There's an oil-free option too)
Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Wash (I love this as a morning cleanser. When my skin is feeling congested/clogged pores this works great. Has 2% Salicylic acid which is good for blackheads, I like to apply on dry skin let sit for a bit & rinse off)
Derma SPF by Dermaglow-Sun Protect SPF 30 (this is a recent fave)
LUSH-Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser (I use this as a scrub)
Dermalogica-Sheer Tint Moisturizer SPF 15 in Medium
Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel (I used this for years & wouldn't use any other cleanser but I got a bit bored & like to change things up. Once in awhile I go back to it when my skin is acting up)
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Sand
Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in #2
Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation in Shell (my winter foundation, too moisturizing for oily skin)
Clinique Superbalms in any shade (for the shiniest hydrated lips minus the stick)
Cover Girl LashBlast Mascara (can't rave about this enough)
Olay Total Effects (7 in 1) Daily Moisturizer
Nars Bronzer in Laguna


  1. I wholeheartedly agree with two of your "tried-and-trues." I'm nothing but OBSESSED with CoverGirl's Lash Blast mascara and any and everything Olay (thanks to good old Mama wearing it since I was a wee one)

    I adore your darling site and hope you'll take a 'looksie' and peek in my neck o' the woods ...

  2. I love Dermalogica special cleansing gel!! My fav :D x
