A Few of My Favorite Products

The Nester is hosting a Favorite Things Under $30 linky party this week. 

I love variety so I try lots of different products.  Anyone out there want to trade half empty bottles of potions and lotions?  :)  I'll share some of my long standing favorites and what I'm loving right now.

Three of my "old standby" favorites (aka I buy these over and over and over...)

1) Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm (the original version).  I've been using this for years.  I love the hint of peppermint.
Give your lips the love and care they deserve.
I have them stashed here, there, and everywhere!

2) Burt's Bees Almond Milk Hand Creme is very think and rich.  This rescues my dry hands during winter.
Give your hands a hand.

3) Bath & Body Works Wallflower Bulbs in Sleep (Vanilla & Lavendar), Stress Relief (Eucalyptus Spearmint), Cinnamon & Clove Buds, and Fresh Balsam.

Three favorites of the moment:

1) Essie nail polish colors that get solid coverage with two coats.  Add a clear top coat and your fingers will be pretty for a week.  I love these two colors because they are deep, rich shades but are neutral enough that they go with everything.  

In Stitches - "a cheeky blush pink"  This is not your nana's pink.

Brownie Points - "a creamy rich brown"  This has some red in it.

White Musk® Eau de Parfum - White Musk

3) I love the fresh and clean scent of Mrs. Meyers Basil Countertop Spray and Dish Soap.  Cleaning never smelled so good!

Favorite products for Maximus and Brewster:

1) Nylabones Dura Chew "souper size" bones...especially bacon flavored.
Nylabone Dura Chew Bone, Bacon Flavor, Souper
Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Fish Formula Dog Treats, 8-Ounce Bag

3) Planet Dog Orbee Tuff  "Tennis Ball" 3 pack.  These rate 5 out of 5 chompers and last a very long time (even with the Saint Bernard!).

Okay it's time to go make your own favorites things list and link up here.  I'm sure I'll discover some new favorite things from your list...

Everyone seems to have discovered Mrs. Meyers except for me.
Are you on the nylabone mailing list? Each month a new coupon. For a while I had several months worth of treats ready in preparation - a whole cupboard! Our local Fleet store had them dollars less than even Walmart so I never paid more than 29 cents.

So nice to 'meet' you today! I blog at "Only A Breath" and would love for you to stop by and visit :)

I'm not on the nylabone mailing list yet. Thanks for the tip! I don't think we have any Fleet stores in my area. I could probably combine the coupon with my petco bucks though.
