I’m always curious to hear other people’s desert isle beauty picks. Aside from Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer and Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara, there never seems to be much overlap. I’m throwing an obscure find into the mix, Living Libations’ Seabuckthorn Best Skin Even. It’s designed, and I use it, for just about every beauty need: a few drops on a wash cloth to take off make-up and to wash my face, a few drops post-wash to tone and moisturize, under or over make-up for a little glow, as a perfume, and as a body oil. It’s probably the only scent that I’ve ever worn where people actually stop me on the street and ask what I’m wearing. I have to give fair warning, don’t be put off by the website. It’s is a tad mystically far out groovy for me, and I swing a little that way (no offense to the talented owner Nadine Artemis, ahem), but the product is truly fantastic, as are all of the products that I’ve tried, especially the Rose Glow Serum and Everybody Loves the Sun. A large bottle of the Seabuckthorn lasts me several months. At $45 for 110 ml, it’s a good deal considering you’re getting a cleanser, toner and moisturizer in one product. We’d love to hear about your secret beauty weapons.
