Tracy's Favorite Things

Merry Christmas to my face!!!

This Christmas I got three things that I just had to had to add to my favorite things list. One of the items is something I have been using for years. After using the other two items just ONE time, I loved them so much I knew I had to share them with you! All three things are for your face!

Item #1
Hope in a Jar 
By: Philosophy

This is the most amazing moisturizer I have ever used! It literally absorbs right into your face and isn't greasy or sticky. I use it every single day, morning and night. It is often an award winner in magazines and on beauty websites and beats out face creams that cost three or four times the amount.

A few years ago, Oprah put it on her list of Favorite Things and this year, she chose it as one of her ULTIMATE Favorite Things!!! You know Oprah can afford ANY moisturizer she wants, but she has raved about Hope in a Jar for years. Philosophy created a special Oprah commemorative box this year. My mom bought be the HUGE 8 ounce size. It will last me all year, or longer!

I can not recommend this enough!!

Item #2
Clarisonic Mia

I have been wanting a Clarisonic for a few years. It's a brush you use to wash your face that was invented by the people who invented the Sonic Care toothbrush. It uses sonic technology to clean your skin, remove make-up, and clear out your pores. They claim it gets your skin SIX times cleaner than washing normally. They also claim that moisturizers or serums you use will absorb better because your face is so much cleaner. Everyone I know that had one absolutely loved it, but the regular Clarisonic costs $195 and I just never wanted to spend that much money to get one.

Well, they came out with a travel size called the Clarisonic Mia!!! It does the same thing as the full size one. The only difference is that there is only one speed on the Mia instead of the 2 speeds that the regular one has. It's a little smaller, but SO IS THE PRICE!

My Mom bought me the Mia for Christmas....after I saw it on sale on QVC months ago and called her to tell her about it! :) I used it one time and was amazed by the results! My face felt so clean and soft like it would feel after getting a facial!!! I was shocked that after using it for just ONE minute my face felt that good. I have used it every night since and really look forward to washing my face at the end if the day. This thing works and it works VERY well!

My mom bought mine from when they had it as their Today's Special. Most places I found sell it for $149, but I did find some for around $130 on (If you buy it from Amazon you won't pay sales tax, so that could save you even more $$.....and for all of you Amazon Mom members, you also get the fee 2 day shipping!)

***This was also one of Oprah's Favorite Things a few years ago!***

Item #3
The Oxygen Peel
By: Philosophy

I think my sister-in-law Tammie loves skincare as much as I do!  We often find ourselves talking about things we have seen on TV or in magazines.  She is also a faithful Philosophy fan and she knows what products from that company I love and which ones I have been dying to try.  The Oxygen Peel has been on my "want to try" list for awhile now. Tammie knew it and got me the QVC jumbo size for Christmas!
I tried it a few days after Christmas and was "wowed!" It's a two step process that takes about 5 minutes.  I don't know exactly how to describe it, but afterwards your face just feels fresh, soft, and glowing.
I LOVE my Microdelivery Peel, so I wasn't sure I was going to like this!  It's not a scrubby peel like the Microdelivery Peel which was my very first "Favorite Thing" I ever wrote about.  But I love this just as much!  It's a great little pick-me-up if you feel like your face feels dull and you don't want to pay for a facial!

If you want to buy any of these, check out!  If you are an Amazon Mom member, it allows you to get the 2 day shipping option for FREE!  (Sign up for free if you aren't!)

Amazon's prices are always good or better than most places and you save by not paying sales tax or shipping.  You just cant beat it!

I hope you get a chance to enjoy these three products!
