Hey Everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite beauty/skin care products that help combat dry skin.

So, I really hope you guys enjoy and I hope this video can help any dry skin suffers out there find some products that really do help.

Perfectly Polished – Updated Skin Care Routine

Beauty, Essentials, LUSH, Skin care

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying this new year! And speaking of … I thought what better way to start the new year than to provide you guys with updated version of my skin care routine! Over the past year or more, I have done a lot of experimenting! I made it a point to test a ton of new products to really find the right combination. I also had to do some reevaluating on my own thoughts on skin care and not be afraid to try products that stated they were  “hydrating”, “moisturizing”, or contained oils. I know I know, I was one of those people that thought using those types of products would send me down a long road laden with breakout after breakout however, I overcame my fear and now I search left and right for products to add that extra little bit of moisture to my skin. When I finally finished my testing I was left with a few stand outs (and believe me I am always continuing to experiment) that I found have worked great on my skin.

So, without further a due, here are the products I have been using in my daily skin care routine.

img_6285

Garner Skin Active Micellar Water ($9)

As most, if not all of you know, micellar waters are absolutely amazing! On a day when I have been wearing makeup, I always start my skin care routine with this stuff. I grab a couple cotton pads, soak them in the solution, and then wipe away the day. This product doesn’t contain any oil so it won’t make your skin feel super greasy and it is incredibly gentle on the skin. Also, I sometimes like to use this stuff even on days when I’m not wearing any makeup and don’t feel like going through my whole skin care routine to remove any dirt or grime that might have built up throughout the day. It’s the perfect refresher!

img_6290

Nuxe Facial Cleansing and Make-Up Removing Gel ($19)

Next, I reach for this Nuxe facial cleanser and make-up removing gel. What I love about this product is that on top of being a soap free facial cleanser, it also serves as a makeup remover. Meaning, whatever the micellar water didn’t get grab before, this stuff is sure to remove it! Next, being that this cleanser is made with honey and comes in a super soothing gel form, it works great at adding softness to my skin and never leaves me  expereincing that tight skin feeling after washing like I have with other cleansers.

img_6287

Pixi Glow Tonic ($15 -$29)

Moving down the line, after cleansing, I follow up with Pixi’s Glow Tonic. Among many things, this product is not tested on animals, alcohol free, and contains hydrating and soothing aloe vera. Although I am not a big fan of the smell, this product is a great toner for someone like me who has sensitive skin. As for the name “glow tonic”, it comes from the fact that this product also contains ginseng and fructose that serve to “tone, tighten, and remove dead skin cells to reveal brighter, healthier, and younger looking skin.”

img_6286

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream ($6-$42) 

Finally, the last step in my skin care routine is to obviously moisturize. I like to bounce back and forth between this one (as my day time moisturizer) and Lush’s Full of Grace facial serum/moisturizer (featured below as my night time moisturizer). At first I was a bit apprehensive to use this moisturizer because I thought that it was for sure going to be far too heavy on my skin but boy was I wrong! I always struggle with dry patches during the winter and this is one of the only products I have found that really help my skin to feel hydrated and supple. It soaks into the skin with ease and doesn’t leave unwanted excess.

img_6288

LUSH Full of Grace Facial Serum/Moisturizer ($16)

Though Full of Grace is found under serums section on LUSH’s website, it is described as a solid moisturizer. As I mentioned, I like to use this product from time to time but mostly as my night time moisturizer because it is a much thicker product. Similar to that of LUSH’s massage bars, this product will melt on contact with warm skin. Therefore, you need only warm it up a bit in your hands to gather some of the product, then apply it all over your face. Containing “hydrating tropical butters, calming chamomile and antioxidant rich mushroom extract, this product creates a soothing treatment for the delicate skin on your face, helping you to maintain its elasticity, moisture and glow.” Finally, I will say that every time that I apply this product to my skin at night, I wake up  the next morning to my skin being incredibly soft and looking amazing!

Mask Me Beautiful

Beauty, Face Masks, Fresh, LUSH, Origins, product review

img_6192

Hello Everyone!

So for todays post I decided to tackle a topic that I have always been familiar with but never actually practiced and that is the art of face masks. I know people recommend you use a face mask (of course depending on what it’s being used for) at least 2-3 times a week. I however, didn’t follow this rule and rarely incorporated face masks if at all in my skin care routine. Although it has taken some time, I have since changed my ways and now try using face masks on the regular. Here are three in particular that I have been game changing for me and my skin.

img_6184

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Face Mask

Where have you not seen this mask be featured? I mean from YouTube beauty gurus to fashion magazines this product is the like Jennifer Lawrence of the mask world. I got this beauty in a small travel size version along with three more of origins classic and best selling face masks. Although I have yet to try them all out, I knew this one had to be first. What I love the most about it is that it is an overnight face mask. Leaving it overnight really allows the product to seep into your skin and work its magic. After my normal skin care routine, I apply this all over my face, dab off any excess and go to bed. The next morning, I awake to find my skin soft, supple and breakout free. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a little more hydration in the winter months or for those who have naturally dry skin year round.

img_6188

LUSH Mask of Magnaminty

Ahh … another classic beauty favorite. Mask of Magnaminty is one of those masks that I would recommend everyone give a shot at least once in their lives. With its punch of peppermint to awaken the senses, china clay to draw out impurities, honey to calm and soothe the skin, and the duel action of the ground up aduki beans and evening primrose seeds to exfoliate, what isn’t to love about this mask?  I would recommend this mask to pretty much anyone in need of a nice cleanse and refresh to their skin. Although, I would recommend for those with sensitive skin, not scrubbing too hard when removing the mask and following it up with a hydrating moisturizer or serum.

img_6190

Fresh Rose Face Mask

I am a big, huge, jumbo fan of anything rose scented. Call me an old lady or whatever you’d like but I can’t help it. So, when I got this mask as part of Sephora’s birthday gift, I was beyond thrilled. Not only is this mask like smearing a fretting ground up rose all over my face, it also serves to hydrate and tone the skin. Two things that I am in desperate need of when is cold, dry, and moisture sucking winter. One thing I love in particular about this mask is that if need be, it can be used daily. If a full size container wasn’t so expensive, at $62 a pop, I would definitely go out tomorrow and purchase a full size. Unfortunately though it is, so I will be having to use this little guy sparingly.

 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post/review of the current masks I have been using and loving. Please let me know if you’ve used any of the ones I have mentioned or plan on purchasing some in the near future. And again, as always, don’t forget to Like, Comment and Subscribe!

Hey Guys, Girls, Everyone!

It’s been a while and I decided what better way to return than to start where I began, with makeup! I decided that with this year fast approaching its close, I would feature some of the makeup I’ve recently discovered and been loving this year.

img_6157

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation in Fair Light Neutral ($39)

I was a big fan of Tarte’s Amazonian Clay powder foundation. I loved the way it looked on my skin and I never felt like I was wearing any foundation. However, when I ran out of that and in need for a new foundation, I decided instead of purchasing another container I  would change things up and go liquid. So, like any girl in need of some makeup assistance, I went to my local Sephora store. There, I tried several different samples of every kind of liquid foundation they had. I knew I wanted a foundation that wouldn’t cling to my dry spots (it’s winter now and my skin is not happy about it), would include SPF and would provide light to medium coverage.

img_6139

Funny enough, after my store-wide search, I found myself back at the Tarte section and staring at a bottle of the Rainforest of the Sea foundation. Upon trying it on, I was in love. It is a water base foundation which is a definite a plus for me since it didn’t feel heavy or suffocating on my skin and it was a perfect match to my skin tone. Being on the paler side, I sometimes find it hard to get a foundation that doesn’t add to the paleness of my skin and wash me out entirely so purchasing a light shade that still allowed me to maintain my natural skin color was yet another bonus. Although, I haven’t been using this foundation for long, I do know that every time I wear it it makes my skin look like just the right amount of dewy and not in the just got done at the gym way or in the i”s it hot in here?” way but in the hey girl hey way … you know? Anyways … I also feel like it gives great coverage and lasts the whole day. All in all I give it 8/10 stars

I guess I should have mentioned this first since it is a primer but hey, we’re here now. With this face primer all I can say is why didn’t I jump on the band wagon earlier. I would literally hear every beauty guru on YouTube rave about this stuff and read it in every fashion magazine. But me being me, I ignored it. Finally, while at Sephora during my thousand foundation hunt, I was persuaded to buy it. As I mentioned before, having dry skin during the winter is never a fun or pretty thing so getting a hold of this is a life saver. Not only does this stuff smell amazing! (if you like coconuts, which I do.) It also really feels hydrating and soothing on the skin. When I wear this stuff in combination with my Tarte foundation, my skin in honest the best I’ve ever seen it. There is active ingredients like coconut water and probiotics that provide much needed moisture to the skin leaving it feeling primed, refreshed, and rejuvenated to apply you makeup.  10/10 stars!

 

This baby has been my “go to” for a pretty good portion of the year. As you may know, I did a post a while back talking about all the highlighters I’ve used/own so I am no stranger to the game. However, I will admit, that this should have been one in my collection. The stick applicator makes it ridiculously easy to apply to just about anywhere on your face, while the creamy consistency allows you to glide it over your skin like butter. It adds just the right amount of glow and is perfect for a not so “in your face” highlighter option. 10/10 stars!

img_6144

Benefit Cheekathon Blush and Bronzer Palette ($59)

What is there not to say about this palette … It includes nearly every one of the Benefit blushes and my personal favorite bronzer of all time, Hoola and it even includes a small travel brush. But by far the most mind blowing this about this palette is the price. I will be the first … ok probably not the first but one of the many people to say that it is A M A Z I N G! A blush or bronzer alone from Benefit costs $29 and in this palette you get five … I mean come on! In terms of use, I honestly have no other blushes or bronzers in my makeup bag aside from this palette. I use it every day almost and I can honestly say I love each and everyone of the blushes for their own reasons. I won’t go into detail now but maybe in a future post I will review each one individually. As for now, 10/10 stars!

 

I really hope you all enjoyed this review of my 2016 makeup essentials. Please let me know if you have tried any of the products I mentioned above or if you decide to go out and purchases them for yourself. But as always, don’t forget to like, comment and subscribe for more of me 🙂

Makeup Brush Collection

Beauty, Lifestyle, Makeup

Welcome Back!

I hope you guys had a lovely weekend. It’s currently 16 degrees and snowy where I live so I am definitely looking forward to some sunshine and warmer weather! Anyways, today I wanted to share with you a collection of my current/favorite makeup brushes that I used on a day to day basis.

 

I am a firm believer in the fact that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get good quality makeup brushes. All make up brushes I use are under $15 a piece. If you’re looking to add some new brushes to your collection, look no further than some of the ones I’ve mention here.

Brush #1:

 

This Elf Flat Bop Brush is awesome for applying any kind of power foundations you might be using. I use this brush when applying my Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation. It provides a smooth application as well as leaves your makeup looking flawless.

Brush #2: 

 

I like to use this brush to apply whatever blush I might be using for the day. It works great when applying color to the apples of my cheeks. I also love this brush because it is part of the Eco Tools cosmetic makeup brush line. This means, each product is made with a bamboo handle, recycled aluminum cap, and is 100% cruelty free.

Brush #3:

 

When using this brush, I like to apply any sort of bronzer I might be wearing for the day. The slanted bristles allow for a more precise line while the roundedness of it allows for any appropriate blending. If I want to add some warmth to my face and make it look like I have a slight contour, I reach for this brush every time.

Brush #4:

 

Speaking of contour…I recently mentioned this brush in my “New Makeup Products” post. I can’t rave enough about the quality of this brush and the fact that it was so incredibly affordable. I use this brush when I’m trying to actually get that contoured look. The packed bristles and the straight edge makes for the perfect contour tool.

Brush #5:

 

This is the first Real Techniques brush I have ever purchased and I will say honestly that I’m looking forward to owning more. I use this brush as somewhat of a buffing brush. When I’m finished contouring or applying any sort of makeup I like to finish by blending out any harsh lines or access powder. The bristles are super soft and the the overall design of the brush is extremely comfortable in the hand and nice to use.

Till next time!

Supreme Shopaholic Tag

Beauty, Happiness, Lifestyle, LUSH

Happy Tuesday and Welcome Back!

So today I will full admit that I was pretty excited about today’s post. The reason being, is that I was actually tagged by fellow beauty blogger elliesprettylittlelessons to do the Supreme Shopaholic Tag. This is the first time I’ve been tagged to do something like this so huge thank you to Ellie!

The rules for this tag are:

Name the person who nominated you and insert a link to their blog

  • List the last three things you bought
  • List three of your favorite stores
  • Write down why you love to shop
  • Name five super shoppers and link to their blogs!

 

The last three things I bought:

  1. Pure Essential Oil Diffuser   
  2. Tigers Eye Genuine Stone Bracelet  
  3. Arlesienne perfume by L’Occitane  

List three of my favorite stores:

  1. American Eagle– I honestly haven’t gone into this store without finding 800 million things that I NEED in my wardrobe immediately. It’s kind of funny because for a while this store wasn’t even on my radar. It wasn’t until my little sister got a gift card for her birthday and we decided to take a look. Since then its been a blessing and a curse rekindling my love for this store.
  2. LUSH– Ok…it’s LUSH people whats not to love?? The fact that their products are not only amazing but also the fact that money money is being used towards great causes. Not only does the store fight animal testing, they also ethical source their ingredients, respect the environment, and donate proceeds to charity through their product Charity Pot. This store has it all and does it all and thats why its one of my favorites.
  3. Nordstrom/ Nordstrom Rack– I like to think of this store as the magical wonderland of shopping. This is a department store that literally has it all. They carry everything from Top Shop to Joe Malone to Adidas. I could spend hours and hours in this store. (maybe not buying everything…but a girl gets to look!) I would say one of the best thing about this store is their return policy, it’s not questions asked even without a receipt. So, for those who seem to always loose that pesky piece of paper, this store is a dream.

 

Why I love to shop:

Well above all, shopping brings me joy. But also, for me, shopping can be all sorts of things. It can be a getaway from the stress of everyday life or that special time to hangout with your best friend and talk. Shopping can also be just looking without having to buy a single thing. When I do actually buy something though, I love the feeling of treating myself and getting myself something that I have had my eye on. Even better, what I love the most about shopping is shopping for the deal. Its knowing I can buy something that normally retails for $100 and get it for $50. By doing that, I’m able to get what I want or maybe afford a nicer item without having to break the bank.

My five shoppers are…

  3. stephieestie.com

LUSH Haul and Review

Beauty, Cleanser, Lifestyle, Lotion, LUSH, moisturizer, product review, shaving cream, Skin care, Uncategorized

 

IMG_4248

Hello! 

Im back again with some goodies I recently picked up after a splurge at LUSH. I mean seriously that store gets me every time. Anyways, I decided to do a mini review of each of these products since I haven’t been using them for very long. So, without further delay..lets get into it!

 IMG_4228

Angels on Bare Skin- (Cleanser) 

I grabbed this little goodie after having a rather lengthy discussion followed by a sampling of various cleansers with one of the woman that worked at the shop. I wound up choosing this one in specific because I have a tendency, in the dry months, to get random dry patches around my T-Zone. With this product containing ground almonds, it helps to buff off any access dry skin flakes that don’t get washed off with my foaming cleanser. Also, the product is made with lavender oil and rose absolute that will soothe, balance, and calm my sensitive skin. For me, it was the perfect two in one cleanser that would keep my skin flake free and soft.

IMG_4227

Cup O’ Coffee- (Face Scrub/Mask)

This wonderfully smelling coco and coffee scrub is something I just had to get my hands on. Who doesn’t love their cup of coffee and the rich, awakening aroma it embodies. And now, you can add that same experience to your skin-care routine! This product contains actual coffee grounds. sweet roasted coco extract, and kaolin clay. Also, this mask is considered to be a hybrid between a mask and a scrub for the face and body. The directions suggest, you apply the product all over the area of your choosing, let sit for 5-10 mins, then gently scrub off with warm water. This product does a great job not only with exfoliating and stimulating the skin but also with waking up the senses like a cup of morning joe would. However, with that being said, I do want to mention a couple of not so great observations I have noticed when using this product. First and foremost, this product is extremely messy. The coffee grounds that are used to give the mask its exfoliating effect, tend to get all over any surface in which you are washing the mask off. Secondly, going along with the messiness of the coffee grounds, they also tend to be a little too harsh for my skin. So, I suggest that if you have sensitive skin to ask for a sample or test it out on your hand before purchasing a full size container of this product.

IMG_4236

Pumice Power- (Foot Scrub)

I just purchased and used this product as of last night and I was rather pleased with its performance. Texture wise, the soap has a slightly sandy/gritty texture that is perfect for scrubbing off the nasty dead skin on the bottoms of your feet. The smell is quite refreshing as well, since it is infused with the lovely scent of sweet orange oil. I will say, that this product definitely did its job by softening the bottoms of my feet and getting off access skin. Although, when you first use this product, it doesn’t feel like it’s doing much since the soap itself isn’t that typical harsh pumice you might be accustomed to. It is a fine pumice powder instead. However, if you take the patience to soak your feet and massage the bar on the spots that need some loving’, you’ll notice the difference.

 

IMG_4234

Ambrosia- (Shaving Cream)

Ok now, don’t be deceived. When you look on the LUSH website, this product is technically marketed/designed to be a shaving cream for men. I however, purchased it as the perfect shaving cream for my legs. I loved the aspect of the shaving cream be something that’s super gentile and calming on my skin compared to the store brand kind that can be super drying. The cream is made with honey water, coconut, jojoba, and chamomile oils to help protect and moisturize the skin. The scent of the product is also very light compared to the previous shaving cream I had used from LUSH, D’Fluff. I have a feeling that I will be sticking with this product as my go to shave cream for a long time to come.

IMG_4229

Love and Light- (Hand Cream)

I actually revived this hand cream in one of LUSH’s gift packages from a family member for Christmas. Now, I normally don’t go to LUSH or anywhere to be honest, looking for a hand cream or lotion. Most of the time I just rub whatever lotion I had used on my face or body into my hands and call it a day. So, when I saw that this was included in my gift package I didn’t think I would have much use for it. I was wrong. I placed this guy next to my bed on my night stand just to use before bed and now I can’t get enough. The texture is very luxurious having been made with neroli and coco butter. But I have to say that by far the best this about this product is the scent. I believe that this hand cream honestly and whole heartedly smells like a bowl of Fruit Loops in milk. I know that’s an interesting way to put it but I swear, smell it for yourself! It brings me back to my childhood. All in all, my hands have never felt softer or more nourished than they do now.

 

I hoped you enjoyed reading! and please feel free to like, comment, and follow!

Until next time!

Updated Skin-Care Products 2016

Beauty, Body Shop, Cleanser, Eye Cream, Lifestyle, Lotion, product review, Serum, Skin care

IMG_4175

Hey guys!

So, today I wanted to give you all an update on some of the skin care products I have been using lately. Most of the products featured are from the Body Shop. I don’t really follow any particular skin-care line that they offer (i.e. Aloe for sensitive skin, Tea Tree for blemished or oily skin, Vitamin E for hydration.) I kind of just pull from a few products that I like or that work well together for me. That being said, continue reading to get a peak into the products I’ve currently been using.

IMG_4161

First up, is the Body Shop’s Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleaner. What I love about this product more than anything is the smell. Tea Tree oil itself smells very refreshing and natural and I think that when using any type of face cleanser, something that doesn’t smell artificial is an absolute plus. The foaming action of the cleanser allows the product to not be as harsh and drying on the skin. Since I live near Chicago the winter months can already be incredibly rough and drying on the skin but this product keeps from adding to that problem. Sometimes I still can’t get over how nicely this product has kept my skin clear and protected from any sort of breakouts.

IMG_4167

A few months back I talked about how much I loved the Aloe Skin Protecting Serum and this is just another product from that line that just works wonders for the skin.  This is the Aloe Calming Toner. When I visited the Body Shop near me I was given the recommendation to follow up my cleanser with this overall balancing and restoring toner. Let me tell you, I’m beyond glad that I followed that advice. This toner, as with the Tea Tree cleanser, smells great. It’s very mild in scent and doesn’t over power the senses. I just use a small amount on a cotton pad and in a circular motion, rub it all over my skin. It instantly soothes any irritations and redness and doesn’t leave my skin feeling overly tight. It adds just the right amount of hydration back to my skin after cleansing.

IMG_4168

This product by far has to be the product that stands out the most for me. As someone in there 20’s, I didn’t really think I needed to start hoping on the serum bandwagon just yet but boy…did this serum knock me right off my high horse. Typically the Drops Of Youth Serum is a bit on the pricer side but I managed to score it during one of the Body Shop good promotional deals. This serum has more substance than the oil or watery based products I’ve seen on the market. It has more of a goo like consistency. This product can be used day or night and I use between 1-2 drops that I either pat or massage it into my skin. I have noticed a definite difference in my skin. It feels hydrated and soft and I don’t have any dry patches. It just seems to instantly bring life into my skin. One small con I would like to mention however is that, I don’t care too much for the sticky feeling it leaves on my hands after applying so I just go ahead and rise them off with soap and water.

IMG_4170

Last but not least, is my Manuka Honey Smoothing Face Cream and Eye Cream by SPA. I actually found both of these product at a Ross near me and unfortunately haven’t been able to find it since. For those who don’t know what Ross is, it’s basically like a Tjmaxx where you can buy higher end products for less. Anyways, since purchasing these two things I have been thoroughly impressed. Especially during the winter, this moisturizer, which is on the thicker side, adds a layer of protection from the harsh cold and wind. Also, the ingredients in these products are 100% natural. Not to mention, the Manuka Honey acts as a calming agent by adding essential nutrients to the skin.

IMG_4164

All in all, I think I have finally hit the jackpot on all of these products. In combination, these skin care items have definitely made a difference in my skins texture, appearance, and over all health. As you can clearly tell, I can’t rave more about these products and I suggest that if you’re in the market for some new skin care products that you give these babies a try!

 

As always, I hope you enjoyed reading and feel free to like, comment, and follow!
