My Favorite Beauty Products of 2014

As the end of 2014 is swiftly approaching, I can't help but reflect on all the wonderful beauty products I fell in love with this year. Customers often ask me what products I love and when that happens, I often get flustered in my answer because it's hard to pick just one or two favorites. Even now it's a toss-up between many products, but because I love lists, I give you a list of my 2014 favorites.

Favorite Face Mask: Dr. Perricone's Chloro Plasma
Nothing makes me happier than my weekly facial ritual of wearing a mask. For a long time, I loved any mask I was able to peel off. It gave me a sense of satisfaction, as if I was getting rid of all this gunk. Surprisingly enough, my favorite face mask does not peel. Dr. Perricone's Chloro Plasma exceeded all my expectations this year. It smells like a day at the spa, does not dry my face and leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean and sensationally smooth.

Favorite Sunscreen: CoTZ
What's better than a non-chemical sunscreen? How about a sunscreen that protects your beautiful skin AND makes an amazing primer before foundation? Anything that makes my skin look impeccable is always a winner in my book. The tinted formula makes my skin look smooth and even, which is perfect for a day of errands.

Favorite Hand Cream: Ahava's Dermud Hand Cream:
Handling money with cash transactions makes me constantly feel the need to wash and sanitize my hands, so they can get pretty dry and irritated. Ahava's Dermud Hand cream is so healing on my skin that my hands feel instantly soothed and soft after just one application.
