I'm a pretty minimal type of gal. I don't have a walk-in closet filled to the brim with clothes and shoes (bags- that's another story.) I choose my engagement and wedding rings over other daily adornments. I was born with thick wavy hair that maintains itself. Confession: I don't style my hair let alone brush it (thanks Dad!) And in today's world, anything that takes the guesswork out life, well that makes me happy. I crave efficiency.
Just as I have a few key pieces of clothing or accessories that really make an outfit, I also have a few rock-star beauty products in my arsenal. I am incredibly picky when it comes to beauty products. I worked for two years in the cosmetics industry, hands on (literally) manufacturing skincare, haircare, and bodycare. I've gained an incredible amount of knowledge about what goes into products and what shouldn't. Let's just say I've tried so. many. things. (product junkie anyone?) in hopes of finding those miracle-do it all-do what it claims-hallelujah-amen sister status items. When a product has multiple uses and performs- it adds to its value, thus I'm more likely to buy again and again.
