Today is a day most of us will be spending with friends and family. The main cook of the family will be up early to put the turkey in the oven and over the course of the day everyone will slowly start to gather. Hugs and Kisses all around, laughs abound. The men napping and watching football, women chatting and kids running wild. There is something about Thanksgiving that puts a smile on my face.
As beauty bloggers the members of the Beauty Council wanted to share the beauty products we are thankful for. Skin care was a major focus for me this year so my list is pretty much all skin care related.

EradiKate to the rescue. This is one of those products that you may not think about but is great to have on hand. When a monster pimple decides to pay me a visit I just dab a little of this sulphur liquid on it and it typically dries up in 24-48 hours. Resist the urge to pick and pop and grab this instead.
Mario Badescu, and my skin completely transformed. I mentioned a few times in different posts about a bad reaction I had to a product last September that had my skin so bad I cried. I never had acne growing up and the disruption that product caused on my face was horrendous, Mario Badescu products saved my skin and helped get everything into balance. I switch out some products now but these two are staples. I only need the glycolic cleanser every few days, so I use that in conjunction with whatever other cleanser I'm using at the moment. The Mario Badescu special enzyme cleansing gel is another everyday cleanser that is in my favorites rotation.
You don't need to use a separate wash with these sponges although you can if you want. You will find that when using with a separate cleanser you will use less product. If you have seen these popping up in the stores and are curious about them go ahead and give them a try. I have been using one on and off for the better part of this year. My boyfriend just started using one as well and I have a body one that I'm testing now, so be on the lookout for a more in depth post about these coming soon.
Evian. Oh remember I mentioned above how I take hot showers. I also waste time in the bathroom before making my way to the vanity to finish my skincare routine and start my makeup which leaves my skin parched. A lot of serums and moisturizers are absobed better when applied to damp skin so sometimes I will also mist my face before applying my serum or moisturizer. The uses for this Evian spray are really endless and it's a product I can' live without. In the summer grab the smaller travel sized cans and keep one in your purse your skin will thank me.

I hope everyone in the U.S. who celebrates Thanksgiving has a wonderful day full of good food, fun and fellowship. I am thankful for all of you who take the time to stop by and keep up with me, CHEERS!
