5 Holy Grail Skincare Products That Will Change Your Skin

Posted in Beauty
on April 5, 2017

I’m all about skincare and sticking to a routine that works well for you. One of the things I love about beauty blogs is when they share products they use every single day that have benefitted their skin. I have been so happy with my skin over the last few years and I want to share my holy grail beauty products that have brought a lot of bliss to my life. So, keep reading if:

1| You’re looking to breathe new life to your skin.

2| Add new products that will help clear your skin for good.

3| Change your routine to feel good in your skin.


1| Cleanser: Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

I haven’t used a facial cleanser other than this one from Cetaphil for seven years; and my skin has thanked me for it. It’s perfect if you’re looking for something that will cleanse your skin without irritation. My pro skin tip: Only wash your face at night instead of twice a day. This has helped my skin even more because I’m not drying it out with excessive washing or water drying out my skin.

2| Serum: Estēe Lauder Pore-Minimizing Skin Refinisher

This Estēe Lauder duo I’ve mentioned so many times includes this serum and moisturizer below. Both have been used on my skin every. single. day for about seven years. This serum specifically has done wonders for my pores and been a skincare essential for me over the years. I’ve tried other products over the years, but nothing compares to this product!

3| Moisturizer: Estēe Lauder Day Wear Moisturizer 

I always believe in investing in skincare products and investing in high-quality items that will truly benefit your skin in the long run. Make sure your moisturizer includes SPF in it and includes ingredients that will help your skin glow all year long. Trust me, it is worth investing in skincare products. Your future self will thank you.

4| Masks: Sephora Rose Sheet Mask & Boscia Black Mask

I’ve been using the Sephora Rose Sheet Mask for over two years now, and I truly love the results it gives my skin if I use it frequently, which is two or three times a month when my skin really needs a little more TLC. I know sheet masks aren’t for everyone, but when you use them often enough, you see a difference in your skin’s hydration and clarity altogether. And let’s be real, we all want glowing skin for spring and summer, right?

The Boscia Black Mask is something I’ve only used for a few months, but let me tell you—it’s worth mentioning in this list of essentials. I know I’ll be repurchasing this for years to come because of the results it gives to my nose and skin for unwanted blackheads and whiteheads. TBH no one wants those in their life, so keep your skin and pores extra clear with this product and you’ll love the changes to your skin.

5| Makeup Remover: Bi-Facil Makeup Remover

I have to thank my mom for getting me into my skincare routine with products from Estēe Lauder and Lancome because she taught me form a young age that you should invest in your skincare products. Even at her age, people easily think she is 10 or more years younger because of her glowing skin. I aspire to have her beauty and radiance at her age. This makeup remover is perfect after wearing a day of mascara, eyeliner and more. It takes everything away without feeling harsh on your skin or eyes, which is very important! Plus, a little goes a long way so you’ll definitely get your bang for your buck with this product.

Fall Skin Essentials

Posted in Beauty
on September 16, 2016

I try to update my skincare routine based on the seasons because the essentials I use in Spring and Summer are completely different from Fall and Winter. Make sure to leave a comment below telling me what your fall skincare essentials are! I want to thank Götz for sponsoring this post and sharing their product with me. Without it, I would have never known a difference one treatment could make to my skin.

1| Makeup Remover

I changed up my makeup remover for fall to an oil-based makeup remover that’s not so harsh on my skin, which is why I’ve been loving the boscia makeup-breakup cleansing oil. I would definitely recommend this if you want a remover that won’t irritate your skin and that will remove all your makeup easily.

2| Cleansers and Scrubs

Cetaphil’s face cleanser has been in my routine for five years and I’ve used Lush’s Cup o’ Coffee for over two years. I can say that both products are wonderful for fall. I treat my skin to a scrub because of the change in weather, but I don’t need to change my skin cleanser because it works well anytime of year. Both are great for normal to oily skin types.

3| Moisturizer

Another set of products I’ve used for more than five years is the DayWear collection from Estēe Lauder. I’ve tried other moisturizers and serums over the years, but I’ve found that this collection works best for fall. Both products are incredibly hydrating but they don’t leave my skin oily or feel weighed down.

4| Treatments

Another newer product I’ve been loving this oxygen facial tonic from Götz. This product balances excessive oils in your skin, without drying out my skin for fall. It also helps soothe redness from blemishes. Let’s be honest, we all have pimples from time to time, so it’s nice to have a product in stock that helps treat any blemishes fast.

After using the facial tonic for a month, I’ve noticed my pores are smaller, and I have less redness in the problem areas of my skin when I have breakouts. I love that it removes all impurities and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. If you’re interested in trying the product yourself, be sure to shop the facial tonic here!

5 Easy Beauty DIYs Using Honey

Posted in Beauty

BB91416_5 Beauty DIYs Using Honey

It’s been quite some time since I’ve talked about some beauty DIYs. Once in awhile, I notice my skin, hair, etc. need a little extra TLC from the change in weather, and I know I have better results when I use all natural products like honey, coconut oil, and other natural ingredients.

The best part about these beauty DIYs is that you can easily make them at home with very little time and effort. I don’t know about you, but I love DIYs are that effective and simple.

Honey has so many wonderful properties for your skin and hair. It replenishes hydration and helps to heal any acne, scarring, etc. on your skin. If you want to treat your skin weekly, you can simply rub raw honey into your skin instead of washing your face in the morning or evening. It gives your skin a break from chemicals in face wash, and it helps soothe, clean, and treat your skin.

1| Hair Mask

Ingredients: Honey and Coconut Oil.

This treatment will hydrate your hair, repair some damage from hot tools, and it will give your hair extra shine! If your hair has been looking dull and lifeless like mine (tbh it’s not pretty) I would definitely recommend it.

2| Brightening Face Scrub

Ingredients: Honey, One Lemon, and Sugar.

I have been using lemon so much from drinking hot water with lemon in the morning, to making this DIY for a skin-brightening, face scrub. You only need three ingredients to create a scrub that will brighten your skin after a few treatments.

3| Cuticle Treatment

Ingredients: Honey, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Coconut Oil.

I don’t know about you guys, but I need to take better care of my nails! My nails and cuticles have been horrible recently because I don’t have time to keep up with them weekly. So, I treat myself to a little treatment every other week to keep them moisturized and maintained.

4| Sunburn Treatment

Ingredients: Honey and Aloe Vera.

Awhile back, I fell asleep outside for almost an hour without any sun protection. When I woke up—I had two lines of sunburn. I knew aloe vera and ice were essentials, but combining honey and aloe vera is helpful for relieving your skin. I would definitely recommend this if you experience sunburn.

5| Coffee Body Scrub

Ingredients: Honey, Coffee Grounds, Olive Oil, and Brown Sugar.

You all know how much I love to use body scrubs on a weekly basis. Recently, I’ve been taking a break from Lush’s Cup O’ Coffee to create a simple, DIY version myself. You only need a few ingredients to give your skin the treatment it deserves. This will remove dead skin cells and soften your skin.

I hope this gave you a little inspiration to try a new DIY treatment for your hair, skin, etc. Make sure to leave a comment if you try any of these DIYs, or if you have a different DIY you want to share.

5 Skin Tips to Master NOW!

Posted in Beauty
on July 18, 2016

BB71816_5SkinTipstoMasterNOW

1| Remove Your Makeup

I feel like a broken record when I talk about this, but I cannot stress this enough! You need to remove your makeup every single night no matter how tired you may feel. Your skin is already dirty from bacteria, and adding makeup to the mix will break you out even more. Take off your makeup, and you’ll notice a huge difference in the clarity of your skin.

2| Exfoliate

Invest in good exfoliating products that you can use once or twice a week. Make sure you’re not using the same product for your face and body (unless the package says it’s safe to do so). Some exfoliating products can be harsh on your face instead of your body, which will do more harm than good. Make sure it’s suitable for your skin type and use it religiously.

3| Moisturize

I can’t believe how many people my age don’t use moisturizer on a daily basis. This boggles my mind because it’s so important for your skin health. Don’t just pick up a cheap, off-brand from Target. Do your research and invest in some high-quality products that will truly benefit your skin type. You will be happy you splurged on those products!

4| SPF

Make sure your moisturizer and face products contain SPF in them so that you’re well protected from the sun. Even when it’s not summer, you still need to make sure your skin is protected from the sun. If you’re spending the day at the beach, wear a hat, sunscreen, and cover your body properly to ensure that you won’t get burned.

5| Keep Your Diet In Check

Truth be told is that your skin can definitely be affected by what you’re eating. If you’re looking to clear up any blemishes and imperfections on your skin—try to eat more fruits and vegetables for a week and cut back on animal fat like dairy products and meat. When you eat meat and dairy in high quantities, it can lead to skin problems, so make sure you’re eating the healthy stuff to keep your skin in check.
