Kick-off: 12 Months of Beauty Products

by | Dec 17, 2015 | Uncategorized

Hey, gang, Katherine is back with a new monthly feature! Take it away, K:

While humming “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and reading People Magazine last weekend, I ran across People/Today Beauty Awards for 2015. Every year since I was fifteen, I have ripped pages out of magazines with the promise of trying all of the tried-and-true beauty products. You know, all the “ Best of the Best” makeup, hair products, skin products, etc. I typically try one or two, but inevitably my list ends up in the trash by April.

This year I have decided to commit to the list by trying one or two new products each month and then reporting back to you. Are these really a game changer in beauty? This is my New Years resolution!

Here are my first selections for 2016.

Dove Dry Spray AntiperspirantScreen Shot 2015-12-17 at 3.07.54 PM

This promises a superfine mist that dries instantly, endless hours of freshness, and no white marks on your clothes (a huge pet peeve of mine.)

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

I picked both products up at our local Target and READY..SET..HERE I GO!

Look for an update from me in mid-January. In the meantime, if you’ve tried one of these products, let me know what you thought! Or simply add a suggestion to my list. By the end of the year, we’ll all know the fact from fiction when it comes to these products.
