As we leave one year behind and start a new one I thought this post would be great to take an opportunity to look back on some of my favorite product discoveries from 2010.
But before listing my favorites from 2010 I wanted to take the time to say thank you to a few people who really made this blog possible:
- First and foremost a great big thank you to my dear friend the fabulous Ms. S who gave me the idea to start a blog. Always happy to share her blogging knowledge and tips, Ms. S really helped me get going with blogging. (You can read Ms. S’s own blog filled with her musings on life.)
- Thank you to my husband, mother, and sister for being the first subscribers to my blog.
- And last but certainly not least – THANK YOU TO MY READERS!!! A big thank you to everyone who posted comments over the last year and who took the time to read what I have written.
Favorite New Product Discoveries from 2010
In no particular order here they are:
The first post I ever wrote for this blog was about brush-on mineral sunscreen, an obsession of mine for about two years now. Until about a month ago I had always used Peter Thomas Roth’s brush-on sunscreen and had had issues with the container/brush of the product. Basically the powder sunscreen would spill everywhere. Not fun. I finally tried Colorscience’s brush-on sunscreen, and well now I understand why it costs $50. The brush is by far the most superior and high quality brush I have used for a product like this. The actual powder sunscreen goes on flawlessly, cutting down on mid-day shine while providing that much-needed sun protection. Once again – not cheap but worth the investment.
I have always been bothered by my calloused feet. Simple moisturizers never gave me the smooth feet and soles that I wanted. Then I realized that I needed to use a moisturizer with glycolic acid in it in order to get smooth feet. So little effort, so much reward. I’ve tried two products and been very happy with both: Philosophy’s Soul Owner and DDF Pedi-Cream.
Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy 2011!
