Currently I use Nutrogena Salicilyc Acid face wash morning and night. Then I put a light moisturizer on (sometimes over Benzoyl Peroxide or Salicylic Acid cream). After, I do a light layer of Bare Minerals with some blush and whatever I'm feeling on my eyes.
I want something easier and more effective.
I am headed to Mexico on Thursday. I get this wonderful sample box in delivered monthly that includes all different kinds of samples. It's called Birchbox and for $10/month you can customize your preferences and your box is always valued over $10! You also accumulate points that go towards purchasing full size products.

Anyway, I really want a tinted SPF moisturizer to make the make-up process better, especially for Summer. This month in my birchbox I had a sample of Dr. Jart and I fell in love with it but there was only enough for a week.
Bre says: "The Laura Mercier rocks my world but it's expensive. I wear it every day instead of face make-up. Totally worth it and it lasts for months. Bobbie Brown makes a pretty good one too." When I asked her about getting just a tinted moisturizer she said: "Honestly, I think you should allow for $200 at Nordstrom. When you change a routine it's an investment. When pepole half try things they don't get the right results and assume it's the product rather than the fact that certain things are made to go together and to work together. I would go to Nordstrom instead of Sephora so the rep can match you and go over the differences. I hate the girls at Sephora, it's great for refills, but not for a fresh start. If you're looking to switch to Laura for good, you would need the illuminating primer, tinted moisturizer, and the translucent powder. Individually all these producs work, but together you will have coverage that lasts all day and is the most natural. Sometimes I skip one and I can tell the difference. This would run you about $150 and leave you $50 to spend toward face wash/concealer."
1. I get something from Target for something like Aveno for less than $15
2. I get Dr. Jart from birchbox for $32
3. I go to Sephora and get Benefit or Philosophy
4. I go all out at Nordstrom with Bre's reccomendation of a full skin care line by Laura Mercier for $150.
Lianne says: "I have heard such great things about Laura. Or Philosophy's Hope in a Bottle. I personally love all things by Benefit. My favorite is Dr. Feel Good that has a Vitamin C base that helps get rid of shine. Unfortunately it doesn't have SPF. As for your breakouts: Neutrogena fash wash with salicylic acid and grapefruit saved my life! I use it every single day and also got my sister some and her face has cleared up also. You don't need to spend a ton of money on it, but make sure it has salicylic acid specifically. Also, it [can be] an investment, but worth every cent. Higher quality makeup and skincare lasts longer and does feel and look different. MAC lasts 10x's longer than anything you can get at Target, so the value is much better and costs less in the long run."
What would I do without my ladies?
