I've said before that I have really simple tastes. I don't need fancy stuff to keep me pretty sort of presentable. I like to use stuff I can buy from my local grocery/super store so I can avoid having to go out of my way. Except for my hair styling products. I need the fancier stuff for that.

The time has come for another product endorsement from me. Please try and contain your excitement. I do this because I know that everyone who reads this blog looks to me for all tips on fashion, beauty, health & nutrition, homemaking and just lifestyle in general. I guess you could call me the Gwyneth Paltrow of Utah stay at home moms. I will now do my best to oblige you and help you nourish something.

Product #1: Neutrogena Intensified Day Moisturizer I've used Oil of Olay and on occasion the store brand equivalent for almost my entire life. I recently switched over to this and am very pleased with it. It's not too heavy and leaves my skin feeling lovely and soft. I especially love it because it has an SPF of 15. I think the most important thing you can put on your face everyday is a moisturizer with sunscreen in it. It's a must. Also, don't ignore your neck. Moisturize it too.

Product #2: Neutorgena Light Night Creme This stuff is fantastic. My face feels just as good when I wake up in the morning as it did when I put it on at night. The other great thing about these moisturizers is they won't break the bank.

Product #3: Remember how I said that I love Dove deodorant? Well, I've recently discover their body mist and it coordinates with the deodorant. How bad could that be? I'll tell you, not bad at all. It's so refreshing and light. I adore it.

There you have it. My latest installment of "What you should be using". Everyone rush out right now and buy all of these things right now. You need this stuff that bad and you need it now. When you do go, tell them Christa sent you because it won't matter at all to them.

P.S. I was letting Peyton run free today in just a diaper. Unfortunately, he discovered how to take it off by himself. Once he did, he promptly peed on the floor. Thank goodness it was on the tile. I would rather mop that then pull out the steam cleaner to clean the carpet.
