As part of our in-office holiday celebration, we celebrated with a lunch and our own anniversary spin on a white elephant gift exchange. Since we knew our 20th anniversary was approaching, we themed our exchange as time-tested drug store beauty finds. The catch was they could not be more than $10 and had to be something you personally used. Some of the products our staff has been using for almost 20 years! Here are our picks if you want to freshen your routine up in the new year – here’s hoping they make us look 20 years younger!
Some staffers shared items that have been using for years as part of their daily skin care routine. Owner/CFO Greta uses Almay Gentle Oil Free Makeup Remover Pads. She loves them so much, all three of her daughters use these too. Payroll Manager Kirstia Cropper uses Dickinson’s Witch Hazel morning and night after she washes her face and has been doing so since high school! VP Partnerships Tiffany swears by Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. She uses it year-round, not just in the winter months!
Everyone wants to look well-rested and Staffing Specialist Ashley uses Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer to accomplish that on a daily basis. Staffing Specialist Kate likes to pop on a pair of Hydrogel Eye Masks if she did not get enough rest. To save time in the morning, Marketing Director Susie uses Not Your Mothers Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo to freshen up and get out the door! Front Office Admin Emma always looks bright and fresh thanks to her highlighter, which is Maybelline Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter and her preferred shade is molten gold.
To enhance her eyes, Owner Mary swears by L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara. Staffing Specialist Madison uses Ardell Pro Brow Razors to shape her perfectly coifed eyebrows, which helps her eyes pop. Account Executive Amber keeps a pair of Tweezerman Mini Tweezers in her purse to shape her brows on the go! In Senior Staff Accountant Meaghan’s purse you’ll find Blistex DCT (daily conditioning treatment) for lips.
Every day, Staffing Specialist Lana uses Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion and Staffing Specialist Lindsey uses Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil on her face before makeup. Staffing Specialist Staci reminded us all that we need to clean our makeup brushes and she does so with e.l.f. Brush Shampoo.
Feel free to share your best beauty finds with us or tell us we look 20 years younger!
