  1. I thought it would be fun to read what everyone's HG items are.
    List any product that you always come back to because no matter how much you've searched, you cannot find a better replacement. A product that you will buy over and over again. A product you will not let yourself run out of.

    So what is your HG......

    Eye Make-up Remover, Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer, Eye Cream, Night Cream, Serum, Exfoliator, Mask, Lip Balm, Lip Gloss, Lipstick, Foundation, Concealer, Powder, Bronzing Powder, Blush, Eyeliner, Liquid Eyeliner, Eyeshadow, Mascara, Tweezers, Teeth Whitening System, Shampoo, Conditioner, Deep Conditioner, Hot Oil Treatment, Leave-in Conditioner, Hair Spray, Gel, Mousse, Hair Styling Product, Soap, Body Wash, Body Lotion, Sunscreen, Sunless Tanning Product, Base Coat, Top Coat, Nail Polish, Nail Treatments, Cuticle Oil etc.

    I haven't found too many HG items myself because I am still searching/experimenting, but here is what I can't do without. These are what work for me because of allergies to certain ingredients that I have. Unfortunately, I cannot use some products that get all the raves because of my allergies.

Kind of like brushing your eyebrows with a comb, just brush over and it cuts off the hairs. IDK what it's called and I bought some in Korea. I think you can buy them in the US though.
