Fabulous Friday- More Beauty Must Haves

I previously posted about some of my Beauty Must Haves here. While that list is still relevant, except for the new cleanser that I use, I have added some new favorites to the mix.
Philosophy Amazing Grace perfume
I love all of the Philosophy scents. They may not have the staying power of some others but I love the happy light scent and now they have a more concentrated version with more staying power if that's your thing.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
Not pricey at all but the best face wash for my slightly oily acne prone face. If I use this at least once a day, I'm golden. I hardly ever have a blemish anymore and this after years of trying every cleaner on the market.

Wexler Intensive 3-in-1 Eye Cream
A little pricey for this low maintenance, budget minded girl. A lot worth it.

CO Bigelow Lemon Lip Balm
I'm a lemonaholic and lucky for me I have a friend who enables me by buying me things like this. The only problem with this balm is that it will make you want a lemon bar real bad.

Wexler No-injection Line Filler
Consider this spackle for your face. You may not need it. I do. More every day.

Secret Flawless Renewal Deodorant in Completely Clean
I'm gonna be honest, I'm usually a whatever is on sale or I have coupon for deodorant kind of girl. Not anymore. It's all about this one for now on.

Avon Moisture Effective Eye Makeup Remover
This is the only eye makeup remover for me. It's actually the only thing I ever order from Avon so I pick it up in bulk when it's time.

I'd love to hear about your favorite beauty products and if you have a Fabulous Friday post leave a comment with the link.

Thanks for all of your sympathy on my last post. It's funny, but until I started typing it all up, it didn't seem so bad. Even I was a little overwhelmed seeing it all in black and white! I do try to just deal with things as they come and move on and I try not to wallow in the misery. Little Miss had a good checkup today and now only has to wear her sling. Let the Eater egg hunting begin!


  1. amazing grace, love amazing grace!
    when we went to pick up my bottle for valentines day, we saw they have a new fragrance....it was so yummy. can't remember the name but check it out!
    thanks for the other tips

  2. Hi Jen,
    My mom actually gave me a bottle of the Amazing Grace perfume and I love the fresh smell of it. I usually don't wear perfume but this is a scent that is so subtle and fresh that I don't get a headache from it.


  3. I love amazing grace too. I find if I layer it with the body wash, a little lotion and a squirt of cologne it has some staying power.

    I have to say I'm a philosophy girl. I love hope in a jar and scrub (can't quite remember the name of it). The scrub has a yummy lemony smell to me.

    Thanks for the info on the other products. Where can you buy that lip balm? I've never seen it.

  4. I love anything from the C.O. Bigelow Lemon line. I haven't tried the lip balm, though I have their lemon lip cream (which is essentially a gloss) and love it.

  5. Hi! I found your blog through SueBee's blog today and as i was scrolling down i saw that we snagged the same country living pic - :) I agree, i LOVE being outside as much as possible. Great blog - now i have to google this wexler stuff.

  6. Thanks for the list. I love when others recommend things that they love. I will be trying some of these out.

    Have a great Easter weekend.

  7. I LOVE amazing grace too!! If you like that, I would recommend you smell Elizabeth Arden Green Tea and also (one of my FAVORITES) Davidoff's Cool Water. I only wear perfume now and then, but those are my fav's! :)
    I'm going to try your eye cream and spackle, Lord knows I need it!

  8. Thanks for the recommendations! I've been looking for a face wash and I'm going to give that one a try.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I'm a big fan of Amazing Grace! It's so fresh.

  10. Wow, it sounds like the Amazing Grace is a must have.....wonder if I can find it here in Montucky? Last time you posted beauty must haves, I got the Patricia Wexler face wash....you have no idea how much influence you have on me!

  11. Beauty must haves, what a great idea. What a lovely post. i have a few of those things! ;)

  12. nice! i want to try the lemon lip stick... ( I am addicted to their peppermint scrub soap! 7.00 a bar- but so worth it!)

    PHILOSOPHY! all wonderful products... just picked some up at Marhsalls!

  13. Hey, I love your picks......

    How about your NCAA pick now? BUTLER is in your back yard! My youngest son goes there (so did my oldest son). You've got to love the old school ways of their team and awesome coach!


  14. Great stuff!! I want to seriously try that perfume, sounds great! Hope your having a great day! xoxo

  15. Thanks for sharing, it all looks Fabulous! I am off to try a few items myself.~Cheers Kim

  16. Hi Jen,
    I am a bit of an occasional lurker. Once I turned 30, boy did my skin change, and after a few years of trying I have finally found things that stop it being dry/ oily and with mega pores. I always thought that the moisturisers were the problem, but now my skin is cleansed properly, I can use any cream I like.

    I LOVE dermalogica gel cleaner, expensive, but my skin feels super clean after and a bottle lasts ages as I only need one drop. Like you I use avon for one product only, their microdermabrasion exfoliant. Feels like metal filings going on, but once a week it keeps my big pores away.

    I like neutrogenia healthy skin anit wrinkle cream at night, and use a variety of moisturisers during the day.

    For scents - I swing between YSL Parisienne, and Lancome Senses. Both light floral/woody/orientals.

    Thanks for all the great tips.
