Staff Picks: Our Favourite Beauty Products

Posted by Alexandra C. | Wednesday February 27, 201312 comments

When you work for a beauty review website, you get the (very lucky) opportunity to try out a bunch of different beauty products. Once you finish a product, there's always another one that comes along. My job also includes constantly researching to see what's new on the horizon and what I can look forward to next. Confession: I actually spend more on beauty now than I ever have before. I just want to test everything out! And when I say everything, I mean, everything. 

So, putting that into consideration, I'm sure you can appreciate that the beauty products we're consistently loyal to are pretty awesomesauce. It takes a lot for me to be loyal to a product, so when I find a winner I'm head over heels in love. I wanted to know which beauty products my fellow chick staffers were loyal to, so we rounded up our picks to share!

I have been wanting to get a Clairsonic, but they are so expensive. I guess I am going to have to wait till Christmas for one...

I do love the CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara!!! It's the only one I buy.
I'd LOVE to get that Clarisonic Plus Sonic Skin Cleaning System but it's a wee bit out of my budget. I think i'll try Burts Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream...I need it! ;)

From all of these I have to say I love Burts Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream the best. Thanks again for suggesting it to me Claire. I also like your pick for the CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara, but lately I've been having a new love afraid their new Clump Crusher Mascara. I've used Carmex Lip Balm that Maggie picked for years. You can't beat it for its price and for how well it works, its a classic. Melissa's pick for the CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipcolor is another product I've been hooked on for awhile now. Those are all I've used out of all of these products. Although I have tried a lot of shampoo and conditioner brands, I always come back to the Pantene line. I like all of the different types they sell, but usually use their line made specially for fine hair most often.
