Top 3 Skincare Products

I'm high-maintenance and I know it.  I'm not ashamed.

I love trying out new beauty products, and I have a lot.  Today I'm sharing some of my can't-live-without favorites.

1)  Clarisonic Mia

I have the Mia 1 with only one speed, but from the reviews I've read, that works just as well as the "fancier" models.  It's around $99, so it's not cheap by any means, but I got mine for about $60 on eBay.  I use it EVERY SINGLE NIGHT to cleanse my face and remove my make-up, and, to be honest, I would have paid more for it because it's awesome.  Your skin feels like silk after using it, and my skincare products really seem to be working better because my pores get so clean.  I use it with the cleanser below for best results.

2)  philosophy's "purity made simple" cleanser

I am obsessed with this cleanser.  OB-SESSED.  Like the Clarisonic, it's pricey, but I have never found a better cleanser that removes all of my make-up and is safe to use over your eyes!  In the past, I always had to use an eye make-up remover before washing my face and then I'd even have to use the eye make-up remover AFTER washing to get the remnants from my mascara.  This is so much easier because it's one step.  I buy the big 32 oz. size from QVC and it lasts me MONTHS!!!  I use it with the Clarisonic and then use my fingers to massage a small pump over my eyes.
This is definitely on the cheaper side of facial moisturizers and it's been one of my go-to's for years.  It's available just about everywhere (even the grocery store!) and it's perfect - not too heavy, not too light, not sticky, not smelly... I just love it!  An added plus is the SPF.
Do you have any "must have" skincare products?  Please share!  I'm always interested to learn what works the way it should!
