I used a lot of products in 2015. For whatever reason, I started to save the stuff I used up in a box, and in cleaning out my entire room this past weekend, I found it. These products are definitely not the only ones I used and liked this past year, but they're all awesome, so I thought I'd recap, even though I'm sure I've written about some of these in my favorites before.In terms of skincare, the precleanse is amazing. It's a first step when washing your face at night to remove excess oil and breakdown your makeup — highly recommend. I like the purity wash to get any of the leftover makeup after that, and to wash my whole face. The aloe protective serum was a really light moisturizer that I liked using during the day under makeup, and the tea tree night lotion was a bit heavier but kept my skin clear and moisturized.

The karma kream is a delicious smelling all-over body lotion, and goes on like a dream after exfoliating in the shower with the grapefruit body scrub. The lemon cream body wash was an awesome winter choice in the beginning of the year, because during those months it's impossible for me to moisturize "too much." If you're looking for an extra boost during the pale months, the Tarte self-tanning towelettes are amazing, and don't turn you orange. I used them mostly to keep the tan dream alive in September, once my natural tan started to fade.For makeup, the Too Faced bronzer is an everyday staple, and I can't stress enough how great it smells and looks. The lash potion mascara was definitely not the only mascara I used this year — if you read this blog, you know that all too well — but it was for sure a stand-out, and something I want to repurchase now that it's on my radar again. The setting spray is another daily staple. It makes me feel like I'm not wearing any makeup, and anything I put on stays put for the entire day (or as they suggest, all night).

Lastly, the two hair items were both ones that I've continued buying over and over since the first time I used them — the dry heat spray is perfect for days you're using a hot tool but haven't washed your hair (um, most days?), and the argan oil hairspray smells like strawberries and provides a light-to-medium hold (my favorite part is that it doesn't feel sticky or crunchy and I can still run my fingers through my hair no problem).

All that this post has done is made me want to repurchase half of these items. That backfired.
