I have a hard time getting into a regular beauty regime. I don't paint my nails very often, I don't spend hours on my hair, and most of the time my makeup is very natural. I want to feel my best every day, but if it's between makeup and an extra fifteen minutes of sleep, I choose sleep! However, I do have certain routines I keep up with, and when I find products that I love, I get really excited about the process. Recently I found some amazing products for keeping skin healthy and moisturized. Since I’m an avid blogger, I felt there was no better place to share my excitement than in my blog. If you're looking for great products for healthy skin, be sure to check out my favorite beauty picks!

1. Neutrogena One Step Gentle Cleanser

I've been trying to find the perfect face wash for a while, but none of them have made my face feel as clean as Neutrogena. Right after I've washed my face, and even when I wake up the next day, my face looks clean and refreshed. I've also had less complexion issues since I started using it.

2. Neutrogena Deep Moisture Night Cream

This face cream is the perfect complement to the face wash. What I like best is that it isn't greasy. Every face cream I've tried has felt heavy on my skin and greasy on my fingers. Neutrogena feels smooth and light, like you haven't applied anything. As a bonus, it smells delightful!

3. Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Creams

I can't say that the aromatherapy has worked, but I love the way the hand creams smell. I'm a particular fan of the Eucalyptus Tea and Black Currant Vanilla combinations. I'm always forgetting to put hand cream on, but the amazing smell of these creams makes it easy for me to remember.

Oh, and as an added note, Bath and Body Works recently released their fall scents. I find a good smelling product helps me to relax and I particularly love the scents associated with fall. If you're a big fan of pumpkin, make sure to check out the new collections.
