I hate change. I am “that person” – the one who shies away from new experiences and sticks to tried-and-true things. They’re comfortable, like an old pair of jeans (or my favorite flip-flops that I’ve worn for the past 7 years).
This part of my personality extends to my daily skin care and makeup routine. I’ve never been one to choose a single product line to stick to; however, I have my mismatched beauty crew that I know, love and refuse to alter. That is, until I find a Gateway Product.
What is a Gateway Product? A Gateway Product is the product that you’ve been told time and again to try. Then, immediately upon the first application, you’re hooked. It doesn’t stop there, though. Because this product is so simply fabulous, you simply must tromp through the entire brand. After all, it’s rare to find a lone gold nugget – they’re usually surrounded by more gold!
So, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to a few of my personal favorite Gateway Products. These products have single handedly re-shaped my entire beauty regimen at one time or another. Don’t forget to check back for more Gateway Products in future posts!
Not only does this body scrub exfoliate and cleanse the skin, it also improves elasticity, boosts circulation and protects with antioxidants while the most incredible flavor fills your shower! Real coffee mixes with the other ingredients to provide a chocolate-covered coffee bean aroma. After experiencing this mouthwatering body treat, it won’t be long until you fall in love with the rest of Juara’s Indonesian-inspired skin and body care line.
This serum-like hydrator seals in moisture while nourishing and repairing the skin. It’s a must-have for naturally thirsty complexions, as well as travelers. Although it was originally designed to be used with Lisa Hoffman’s Hydrating Mask, it’s also perfect for mixing with your moisturizer for an extra burst of nourishment and hydration. This product isn’t the only Lisa Hoffman creation designed for travelers. In fact, her entire line caters to the jet lagged and hotel bound!
This one truly changed the way I apply makeup. I didn’t even use a primer before meeting this little minx! The silicone-based formula creates a silky texture while natural ingredients like avocado oil soothe, brighten and hydrate the entire complexion. After use, the skin exhibits the perfect texture for flawless foundation application. Of course, this isn’t Tarte’s sole stroke of genius. Their entire line is filled with unique, fun and user-friendly formulas.
