Now that fall is officially here, it's time to go through your make-up bag and sort through what's working and what needs to be replaced. It's also a great time to update your stash of beauty products that can shave some time off your routine or do double-duty as two (or three, or more!) products in one. Here are a few of my top picks:
These Tea Tree Oil Cleansing Wipes from the Body Shop are great for removing make-up in a flash. Keep them in your gym bag, your make-up bag, or your overnight kit for when you need to sweep away the day's make-up and impurities. They're convenient and multipurpose, deeply cleansing the skin, helping to unclog pores and removing excess oils, make-up and impurities, while toning, in one simple step. Plus, they're infused with tea tree oil for an invigorating lift. 25 to a pack.
Aveda Petal Essence Triple Accent Pencil For maximum versatility—and maximum ease—this double-ended jumbo pencil works on eyes, cheeks and lips. Two formulas, for triple impact: silky on eyes; creamy and long-wearing on lips; color-true on cheeks. And respectful of the Earth, with FSC-certified wood and rich plant ingredients. Now that's what I call multi-tasking!
Wow, talk about great for the mom on the go, Philosophy's Amazing Grace Bath, Shampoo and Shower Gel does triple-duty as a bath, shampoo and shower gel in one. This gel carries on the lovely Philosophy Grace scent and is a subtle way to wear a wonderful fragrance. Plus, it earned Sephora's "Best Of" Award for 2006. It must be good!
