Favorite skincare and beauty items (from my mom)

Hey everyone!
So today is my mom's birthday (wish her a happy birthday in the comments!) and I thought that in honor of it we would do a blog posts of her top 5 skincare/beauty items. So here it is! Also, let me know if you want her to do individual reviews of these products in the comments!

1) Artistry by Amway Skincare

My mom uses the "time defiance" line and she really enjoys it. She says, "I have noticed an improvement in my skin since I've began using it (3-4 months ago). It has evened out the indents (from acne scarring) in my skin and also helped neutralize my hyperpigmentation."

2) Shiseido Powder Foundation

My mom has used this product for as long as I can remember. It gives medium coverage, but can be sheered out or layered on. "I use this foundation because it gives my skin a nice matte finish (I have combo skin) and I think it gives coverage, but still makes my skin look like skin (not too cakey)."

3) Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara

My mom uses the waterproof version of this mascara. She enjoys lots of maybelline mascaras, but this one is her favorite of the moment. "I really like this mascara because it is a wetter formula, which I enjoy. It also gives definition to my lashes and the wand gets all of my lashes with the tapered tip.

4) MAC Casual Color "Relaxation"

This is a convertible lip/cheek product that is similar to the bobby brown pot rouge. Relaxation is a medium pink color that looks really pretty on both lips and cheeks. I feel somewhat responsible for this being one of her favorites because this was part of my christmas present to her! "I like this because I think it looks really pretty when the lips and cheeks are matching. Also, I get dryer on my cheeks and I think that because this is a cream product, it is a little bit better and more natural looking than a powder." 

5) Clinique Dark Spot Corrector

My mom suffers from acne scarring and she uses this product to help fade those spots. It has helped a bit with the acne scars, but she hasn't used it long enough to notice huge changes. "This is a serum that has a light moisturizing feel when you apply it. I like how it feels on the skin because it is still pretty light and isn't heavy. I also think that I see some improvements in my skin, but I'm going to continue to use it more to see if it helps some more."

So those are my mom's skincare and beauty favorites! Let me know in the comments if you would like to see more blog posts from my mom and leave your birthday wishes for her in the comments!
