Summer Skincare Routine

Summer is such a beautiful time of year! It’s also the season of skin so I’m making sure to keep my skin looking nice and healthy! The focus this summer (well, every summer!) is on clear, glowing skin so I’ve been using products loaded with lightweight moisture.

Happy Anniversary Nordstrom!

The annual Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here! I enjoy all the new fall fashions but as a beauty junkie I’m so here for the makeup! There are a ton of new and exclusive beauty products to choose from this year but I have my eye on two pink sets from MAC and NARS. I don’t need anymore pink lippies but I can never resist limited edition goodies. Especially at a good price! The Anniversary sale special preview (and double points!) started yesterday and ends on the 17th for Nordstrom reward members. Not a member? You could sign up for a free debit card that links to your bank account so you can join the early access fun. Or you could wait until early access is over and shop with everyone else. The choice is yours. Just make sure you check out these amazing deals before they’re gone!

Spring Scent Picks

Don’t you just love spring? Everything seems to get lighter and brighter when spring comes around. Including my fragrance collection! There are some scents that I like to wear all year round (like my beloved Prada Candy) but there are a few I reserve just for spring and summer. Check out a few of my faves!

Refreshing Morning Showers With Kiehl’s

Let’s face it. We all can’t be morning people. Some of us need an extra little pick me up in the AM to get the morning started. I’m not much of a morning person so I rely on a nice, hot refreshing shower to perk me up and get me on track for the busy day ahead. That’s why I’m such a big fan of zesty shower gels! Don’t get me wrong, I live for sultry vanilla and amber scents. But there’s nothing like a nice rub-a-dub in the shower with a crisp, clean smelling shower gel!

Shiseido Facial Cotton Wipes

I’m all for saving a buck here and there but some things are really worth the splurge. Like these Shiseido Facial Cotton Wipes! I totally thought it was unnecessary to spend $10 on a pack of cotton wipes until I finally bit the bullet and tried them. The Shiseido Facial Cotton Wipes are incredibly soft and so gentle on the skin. Sometimes I have to put a little elbow grease into removing those super tough waterproof formulas which leaves my eyes feeling a little rough and abused afterwards. Not anymore! These wipes get the job done without any irritation and most importantly without any residue left behind. I noticed after I started using toner that most cotton balls (and pads too) left strings of cotton everywhere. I absolutely hated picking all the left over pieces off of my face. If you experience similar problems with cheapie cotton pads I highly recommend splurging on the Shiseido Facial Cotton Wipes. They’ll go nicely with your new toner!

Ready, Set, Tone!

Have you ever wondered if your skin was completely clean after wash time? I sure have! There’s been quite a few times I felt like I was on top of my skincare routine but still suffered from breakouts. Breakouts can occur for a number of reasons like stress, environmental changes, hormones and more. One of the most common causes is that we simply aren’t cleaning thoroughly enough to unclog those pores. I had no idea how much dirt I was leaving behind until I started using a toner. It was shocking!
