The best in beauty products that have truly stood the test of time. Tried and true, these still rock.

MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator ($19.00) was a product that was nearly HG (holy grail) status. Of course, it was limited edition. Of course, I did not think to stock up at the time. Actually, if my memory is at all reliable, I intended to stock up only to discover they were sold out everywhere. Re-reading my original review actually says as much! Love, love, LOVE this stuff. I am desperately hoping the rumors are true, and we will see the return of my beloved VAE this fall/winter. C’mon MAC!

NARS Hydrating Moisture Cream ($72.00 for 3.4 oz.) is still a go-to moisturizer for me. I tend to use at night, because it is quite hydrating and often is a bit more moisture than I need in the AM. (Plus, it doesn’t have SPF, so I tend to opt for a moisturizer with built-in SPF — this is not really a make-or-break point for me, though.) I often alternate this with NARS Aqua-Gel Hydrator (which I love equally as much as this one — so all the things I said about the Moisture Cream, I say about the Aqua-Gel!). If you didn’t know, Shiseido owns NARS, and Shiseido is known for their skincare. In order to build up a reputation and grab market share in Asia, your brand must excel at skincare — that’s just where the focus is. I feel like NARS’ skincare products are often overlooked, but they are excellent and definitely worth trying. Available at Nordstromicon and Sephora.com.

HauteLook is having a Rescue Beauty Lounge sale!

Rescue Beauty Lounge sale is going on now at HauteLook! :)  I’ve never tried anything by Rescue Beauty Lounge, I don’t think, but I’m pretty tempted as it looks like most things are 70% off!!  I couldn’t believe the discount.

Edited:  I couldn’t resist.  I tried to pick up stuff I know we’ll go through (the boyfriend loves himself some body wash!).  I picked up the Rosemary Pamplemousse Body Wash & Hand Cream, Spice Floral Body Wash, and Citrus Vert Anti Bacterial Hand Wash.

(The link above is an invite-link, which is a referral link. HauteLook has opened up membership, so you are free to sign up on your own, if you wish! :) )
