Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Review

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

As a makeup junkie, I can definitely appreciate the art and beauty of a beat face. However, there’s nothing more important than skincare! Makeup is fun, expressive and creative–a true form of art. But what good is all that fancy paint and such if the canvas isn’t up to par?

That’s one of many reasons I try to keep my skin in tip-top shape. Healthy skin just makes you look amazing–whether you’re wearing makeup or sporting a bare face. One of my recent skincare buys has been playing a pretty big role in keeping my skin healthy and looking great so I figured I’d share the details with ya.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Perfume

Ahh Wednesday. Good to see you again. Means we’re once step closer to the weekend and get to look pretty in pink! This week’s Pink Wednesday feature is dedicated to the pink tinted fragrance I’m wearing today, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. I’ve actually had this scent in my stash for quite some time now but kinda forgot about it until rummaging through some things yesterday. I can’t believe I’ve neglected Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet for so long because this perfume smells heavenly! With notes of Italian mandarin, peony and white musks Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet makes a wonderful spring scent. It’s very light, sweet, crisp and floral. I had to make a little room on my vanity for this beauty so I could give a little more love.

What perfume are you wearing today?

Ole Henriksen Black Currant Perfecting Complexion Oil Review

Ole Henriksen Black Currant Perfecting Complexion Oil

Like most people, I love to shop. It’s just fun and exciting to buy new stuff. I can’t really explain it, but I like it. A lot. What I don’t like, though, is shopping in stores. Most times it’s just a hassle. There’s stuff everywhere. People are all in the way. And sometimes sales associates can drive me a little nuts. I definitely prefer online shopping! But every now and then I have to trek to the stores for something I either can’t wait for or a deal I wouldn’t have found online.

Ahh, the last day of April. Can’t say I’ll miss this month too much. It was pretty busy. And still kinda cold. But a lot of good still managed to come out of April. I started a promising new job and bought a lot of new makeup. So I guess things weren’t so bad after all. Especially considering I came across a handful of new products that are unbelievably good. Take a look!

Add a Little Glow to Your Routine!

MAC Golden Elixir Strobe Liquid, Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM

Can you tell that I’m obsessed with glowing, dewy skin? It just looks amazing in the spring and summer! As I was telling Katherine, (we’re great makeup buds in my head lol), I haven’t quite achieved that highlight that the ladies of the Real Housewives of Atlanta were sporting. They were literally glowing in the dark! Lately, I’ve been a little pressed for time so I can’t sit in the mirror piling on shimmering powders like I want. Instead, I’ve been using this quick beauty tip to add a little glow to my skin and brighten my complexion.


Simple Cleansing Micellar Water Review

Simple Cleansing Micellar Water

I can’t stress enough how important it is to completely remove your makeup and wash your face at night. I just can’t always practice what I peach. I know, I know. I’m terrible. But sometimes I’m just too tired and my bed seems way more appealing than spending 10 minutes over the sink. So, as you can imagine, I didn’t hesitate a lick to try the Simple Cleansing Micellar Water after reading some pretty good reviews.

CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM Review

CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM

If you haven’t been listening, I want you to lean in very closely so you don’t miss out again. There’s some gems in the drugstore aisles! I’ve shown you some the amazing lipsticks, glosses and bronzers I’ve come across but there’s also some high quality skincare goodies in the mix too. I took a chance on the CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM after seeing rave reviews on the line from Huda Beauty and Musings of a Muse and, boy oh boy, it’s good!
