Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without

A Day in the Life Fashion Reviews & Giveaways Things We Love Tried & Tested What's New Win This

I find that it is so important to take care of yourself. Not just when it comes to your health or nutrition as I often speak about. But also taking care of the way you look.

I have always been a t-shirt and jeans kinda gal, never really dressing up for anything unless I was going out somewhere nice. Working from home over the last number of years has made it easy for me to just shower and go, because well, I wasn’t going anywhere!

I tended to neglect what I looked like, wouldn’t put on makeup or do anything with my hair. My mother, as far as I can remember back, always looked presentable no matter where she was going or who she was seeing. She could just be sitting at home for the day but would still “do herself up”.

Well, I’m now 43 years old, and while I more often than not live in athleisure wear for comfort, I am finding it is important still to always look my best. Because let’s be honest, when we look good, we feel good.

So I decided to put together a list of beauty products that I can’t live without now.

Hair Care


If I don’t wash my hair it can get quite greasy looking. On any given week, I will have washed my hair at least 6 out of the 7 days. I also workout at least 4 times a week which requires me to shower and wash my hair as well. So I make sure that I’m using product that can not only clean my hair and scalp, but also keep it healthy.


I’ve trusted Finesse for years now and it is a must have in my house.

Lip Care


No matter the season, I always find my lips need something on them. I wear lipstick, but only when I’m going out, whether it be a meeting or a night out with my husband or friends.

I love the feeling of hydrated lips, and I love how they look when moisturized. I’ve always loved the shape of my lips so I always want to keep them looking and feeling great. I use Lypsyl daily; every morning, throughout the day and right before I go to bed. Who wants to feel dry? You don’t have to with Lypsyl.


Hair Styling


I have pin straight hair. Even if I don’t blow it dry, it just goes straight. No waves, no curl, no nothing! So when I’m going out for dinner, date night, a night with friends, an event or a meeting, I like to do something different with my hair.


Whether it be full on curls or just a nice light wave which I am loving right now, the Conair Infiniti Pro works like a charm!


Skin Care

The older I get, the older my skin feels. Is that even a thing? I can’t help but notice the changes in my skin, specifically my face. So after years of using one brand, I decided to make a change and start a whole new skin care regime. I found the RE9 Advanced anti-aging skin care line from Arbonne.


After only two weeks of using it, I fell in love. My face felt smoother, I noticed less lines and damage, and just felt great overall.

Sometimes it’s good to change things up once in a while and I’m so glad I did. If you want to learn more about these all natural, vegan products by Arbonne, have a look at the site and let me know which products are on your radar! (Hint, there’s way more than just skin care too!)


Eye Care

Surprisingly enough, I never used to wear mascara. I have big eyes and I never wanted to draw more attention to them. So other than special occasions like a wedding or a bar/bat mitzvah, I would use eyeliner and that’s about it. It wasn’t until sometime last year that I started noticing some friends and colleagues with amazing long lashes. I loved the way it looked. It was then that I decided I want to start wearing mascara instead. But at the same time I noticed that my lashes weren’t so long anymore (when I was a kid I had super long lashes). So I found a product that would help grow my lashes.


I was introduced to EyEnvy  (eye envy). I used it everyday on my lashes for 3 months (as per the directions) and noticed quite a difference when I put on mascara. People were telling me how good my lashes and my eyes looked. It felt great! So now, I use the EyEnvy every few days to keep up the length (after 3 months don’t use it everyday). And my go to make up now is only mascara! My go to is the Arbonne Mascara.



So there are just a few of my favorite things when it comes to personal care. It’s surprising that I didn’t think about it as much when I was younger, but I sure am glad I do now. As we get older, we need as much help as we can get!!

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
