top 10 cosmetic products

While a microdermabrasion or Botox treatment can work wonders, most women will still stick with a daily skin care regimen afterwards—- including anti-aging creams, long lasting makeup, and high end hair products. The problem is, there are literally thousands of cosmetic products out there from which to choose. So, to simplify things a bit, I’ve selected my own top 10 cosmetic products for 2010, based on consistent results, value, and availability. These make excellent stocking stuffers at the Holidays, and can last well into the year ahead. Enjoy!
