There are several great products I've tried this year and a few new ones I'm dying to try. My list this year consists of some fabulous products that I highly recommend or fully intend to try based on good reviews I've read. I would rush out and buy everything on this list right now if money was no object. Hence, the "Wish List"! ;)
Cleanser: Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil
Tried it! Rating: 5 out of 5
"The secret to Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil is protecting the skin’s delicate balance while removing make-up and impurities in a single step. Evolved from the original shu uemura cleansing oil, "Classic" is reformulated with an advanced High Performance Cleansing Oil system for significantly improved removability of waterproof make-up.

Moisturizer: Pangea Organics Nigerian Ginger, Sweet Lavender & Thyme Facial Cream
Dying to Try
"[Pangea Orangics] creams are designed to protect, balance, nourish and provide just the right amount of moisturizing. Ingredients such as Argan Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Rice Bran Extract and Shea Butter are hand-picked for their anti-aging, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, EFA and Vitamin rich, cell regenerating, and natural sun protecting properties. No matter the skin type, hydration is always a good idea – whether you drink it in or smooth it on. Actually, doing both is best. As for our facial creams, we formulate them with faces in mind, taking into consideration that facial skin is thinner and more delicate than the rest. Feels smooth rather than smothering."
Mask: Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask
Tried it! Rating: 4 out of 5
"Activated Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Without all that 'stuff' down there, skin 'breathes a sigh of relief.'"
Eye Treatment: FirstAid Beauty Detox Eye Roller
Dying to Try
"FAB’s Detox Eye Roller contains caffeine, a potent vasoconstrictor that constricts the fine blood vessels that cause dark undereye circles. Hyaluronate and advanced peptides recapture lost volume and increase collagen production to reduce fine lines. Witch hazel protects and soothes the very delicate skin under the eye. The unique delivery metal roller ball gently distributes lymphatic build-up from underneath the eyes, resulting in less baggy looking skin."
