I always enjoy trying the latest makeup and beauty products and what's trending because every once in a while I'll come across an item or two that I can't believe my regimen has survived without. But then there are some products that despite the latest craze, I always find myself going back to. Products that are tried and true and will always give what needs to be given no matter what - oldies but goodies if you will.

I've narrowed the list down to just 5 of of my product faves and some of these may actually surprise you.

MAC Mineralized Skin Finish (Gold Deposit)

I've tried a number of bronzers and highlighters that I also love but no matter what I always seem to find my way back to my mineralized skin finish. It goes with just about any other makeup I choose. Select image for more product details or to purchase..

As a chocolate girl, sometimes the ash can be too visibly real and while I've tried a number of lotions, creams and body butters, there are some that do get the job done when it comes to moisturising and sealing moisture, however, I still find myself reaching for my vaseline. I especially like to use it during the winter months since that's when the dryness of my skin tends to act out the most. I find it especially beneficial on certain parts of my body after an evening shower, like my feet. After applying vaseline to my feet, I like to cover them with a cozy pair of socks and by morning they always feel amazing! Select image for more product details or to purchase..

MAC Prep+Prime Fixed+ Setting Spray

Interestingly enough this is one that I've replaced when it comes to a finishing spray but I've found that it works wonders with setting my skin under makeup application, especially on warmer days or during situations when I know there may be lots of sweating.

NARS Velvet Matt Red Lippie

I could actually list a few good oldies in this category when it comes to a matte red lip but I'll go with one that's not always as popular. I just find this red lip to be absolutely stunning with just about anything I wear! I venture to say that no brown girl could go wrong with this lippie.

African Pride Olive Oil Leave-In Conditioner

As a low porosity, dense textured, coily curly natural, I always talk about the challenges I've had with finding the best products for my hair. And with there being a number of trendy products that have been well, meh~ for my hair, when it comes to both deep conditioning and a leave in, a tried and true product I've continued to use for years is African Pride Olive Miracle.
