Island Beauty featuring A Watercolor Sky

While watching "Lost" online a few weeks ago, my thoughts drifted to beauty products. Let's say all of my basic needs ( food, water, shelter) are covered. What beauty products would I bring with me to a deserted island? What if I could only bring seven things? I would get an unlimited supply of these seven items, but I could only bring seven beauty items. What would I pick?

I posed this question to some of my favorite beauty bloggers and the answers were informative, thought provoking and funny! "Island Beauty" will be a Wednesday staple here on for the next few months.

b|u3, the beauty behind the A Watercolour Sky beauty blog, is this week's Island Beauty. Here is her "Island Beauty Shopping List":

In reply to your question, I guess I kinda listed some products in my latest post, but then again on a deserted island i'd be more concerned with skincare products than makeup :P

With that in mind the 7 products would be:

Shampoo - Burt's Bees More Moisture Raspberry and Brazil Nut Shampoo
Conditioner - L'oreal Professional Vitamino Gel Mask
Soap - Dove soap or shower gel
Face wash - DHC Cleansing oil
Sunscreen - probably Shiseido Very Water Resistant SPF50 sunscreen for face and body
Face Moisturizer - Lancome Aqua Fusion cream
Exfoliator - Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Refiner

I'd put a mask and eye cream too, but that would go over the 7 allowed, unless I can assume the basic shampoo and conditioner needs are taken care of? :D

Thanks b|u3 for sharing your list!

Don't forget to check out her blog, A Watercolour Sky:)

  1. This is the second time I've read about DHC Cleansing Oil. My skin is sooo dry. I'm definitely going to try it now.

    Hey:) I've tried it before in a sample and it is good. It would be the perfect thing to use in the winter.

  3. Ooo this looks fun! I e-mailed mine to you
