if i were stranded on a deserted island and could only take three 
things with me, i would take: 
burt's bees chapstick 
mark. matte chance mattifying lotion 
and johnson's 24 hour lotion


ok, maybe not. but those are three of my absolute favorite products that i use on a daily basis. 

first, chapstick...i've talked about it before. and i'm sure i'll talk about it again. i'm addicted. there is no worse feeling than when you feel the chapstick is almost gone from your lips and your lips are instantly dry and feeling like they're going to fall off your face [i'm in a dramatic mood today]. but really, chapstick is a must-have for me. always and everywhere.

secondly, mark.'s matte chance mattifying lotion is the bomb. that's right, i did just use that term from the 90's to describe this facial moisturizer. for years i struggled to find the right facial moisturizer that would do it's job but not look greasy or feel heavy and i couldn't find anything. i also have super sensitive skin so basically every time i tried a new product, my face would break out in these crazy little bumps and i wanted to wear a face mask everywhere. although, i think wearing a face mask would be a little more alarming to people than just having this crazy allergic reaction all over my skin. anyways, after much scouring of target's beauty department and the internet, i finally found my number one all-time favorite, best in the world, couldn't ask for more facial moisturizer. 

that's where this little gem comes in:

not only does it moisturize like a champ, but it's matte. [hallelujah, hallelujah!] 
no shine, no grease, no extra foundation to cover the reflection from your lotion. this baby does it for you. oh, and did i mention it's only $18? amazing.

and thirdly, my johnson's 24 hour lotion. i discovered this stuff years ago and have been using it ever since. much like the lotion above, it's not greasy or heavy. it moisturizes and soaks right into the skin so you don't have that "i put lotion on 20 minutes ago but it still feels wet" feeling. 

oh, and i'm pretty sure it was made for babies, so you know it's going to be soft.
