Nina's beauty stats: Just turned 40; brown hair with highlights; medium-dark skin; brown eyes.
"Being a mom and a wife, and running a household, I don't have time for long, pampering beauty treatments, let alone leisurely doing my hair and makeup. For me, everything has to be fast and cost effective. These are the products that give me the most bang for my buck."
Bio-Oil Scar Treatment
"This oil is meant for stretch marks, but it's also great for dehydrated skin. After I started using it, people literally stopped me to ask what I was putting on my face. I slather it on before a shower so it can soak in, making my skin soft and smooth. I also use it on my body and hands after showering."
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20
"In the morning when I'm rushing to get my son to preschool, I put this moisturizer on. To give my skin a little glow I mix two shades, a matte shade and an illuminating one. I follow with a light coating of bronzer."
Benefit Erase Paste Concealer
"I am a concealer fiend — especially if I don't get enough sleep the night before. This formula has a creamy texture and blends in easily."
Dove Intense Damage Defense Daily Treatment Conditioner
"When it comes to my hair, I don't have the time to wash it very often, and when I do I need to get in and get out, which is difficult because I have dry hair. This conditioner gives me the results of a deep- conditioning treatment in one minute. That's my kind of hair product."
René Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo
"For those days when I cant wash my hair, I use dry shampoo. The bonus to this bottle is that it gives you great volume in addition to soaking up your hair's oil."
Caress Velvet Bliss Silkening Body Wash
"I really just started focusing on my body in my daily beauty routine. Before, I never really paid attention! I use this body wash with a bath pouf to exfoliate my skin. I love that I can get out of the shower and if I forget to moisturize it's okay because this body wash does both."
