What beauty products are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Let me know in the comments!


  1.'s 2.5% benzoyl peroxide treatment, no question. It took me from having extremely resistant acne that left horrible red-purple marks to having almost 100% clear skin, and for that I'm truly thankful!

  2. Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Creme (10% glycolic AHA) - this (and a salycilic acid body wash) has cleared up those little bumps on the backs of my arms and legs (something something keratosis). It took several weeks, but the bumps are all gone! Looking at reviews of this product, people also gush about its wrinkle fighting, pore minimizing and discoloration fixing properties. I'll have to try it on my face, neck and chest. And at $12 for 2 oz. it's one of the cheapest products in my medicine cabinet.

  3. Jamie,
    This post is AMAZING. I am grateful for your friendship and for introducing me to the Violette candle. I was devastated when it finally burned it down to the wick.

  4. I actually, am thankful for the mascara, it's the greatesc beauty product invented.
