If you're anything like this beauty junkie, shiny new things tend to catch your eye. There forever seem to be countless new beauty products launching at any given moment and I am not ashamed to admit that I want to try out most of them. But there is a cost to that. When you're caught up in the latest and greatest you can forget about the classics. You know what I mean. I'm referring to those products you've always been able to count on. You don't have to cast aside old faithful however. It's possible to make new friends and keep the old...bwah! You just have to remember to consider those "gold" beauty products when you add a new product to the rotation.
So, for example, there is a daily moisturizer that I just love. I've tried plenty of others, but I return to this particular moisturizer time and time again. So, that's my gold product. Now clearly I know that product works for me, but what I could do is add complementary "silver" products. So, trying out new serums to work in conjunction with that classic moisturizer, for example, is a good idea. Don't waste your money on new products if they won't play well with the products that are working for you already.
Ok, so now that we're clear about the importance of not discounting classic beauty products, let's talk about one such product that this girl thinks we all need! And while there have been plenty of searches for a dupe for this product, I just don't think it exists. The classic beauty product that I'm focusing on belongs in your makeup bag now and here's why. Oh and if you really need something shiny and new, I can deliver that to you too. Confused? Read on...

Now that you have the potatoes, you can concentrate on the meat. The original beautyblender can be used wet or dry and it feels simply divine against your skin. That was the tipping point for me.
