Happy June! It’s hard to believe it’s June already but I’m beyond ready for the sunshine and good vibes. Bring it on! I love summer as it’s always filled with fun times, dewy skin and gorgeous bold colors. That’s what I’m all about baby! Radiant, dewy skin with a flawless base and a pop of color. These days, I’ve been hooked on quite a few new products that help me achieve the perfect summer look I’m going for with ease. Here’s a few of my current faves:

Skincare Sunday: Current Faves

Skincare Sunday: Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe Herbs and Rosewater, Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment, Clinique All About Eyes Serum

It’s Skincare Sunday loves! Every Sunday, tons of beauty junkies share their favorite skincare products or current routines on social media and I thought it would be a fun idea to swing it over here. Skincare is really starting to become a passion of mine so I’d like to start having a little more skin talk with you guys.

Who doesn’t want to look flawless without makeup? I know I do! And I know you do too, girl! That’s why I can’t bear to leave you hanging without sharing some of my skin secrets. So here’s a quick rundown of some new goodies that have quickly become my faves. Enjoy!

Now that we’ve got all of my January empties out of the way let’s move on to my faves, shall we? The plan was to get my faves and empties up together. But having a jam packed birthday weekend and then a crippling sinus infection the following week really threw me off. Way off. I’m talking mouth breathing for 4 days straight and putting my pants on backwards for an interview off. LOL!

Needless to say, January was a very long month but a lot of good came from it. Like ringing in the New Year and spending my birthday and Valentine’s Day with my amazing boyfriend. And trying a handful of new products that turned out to be the bomb.com. There’s nothing better than love and good makeup, right?

January Empties! 

It Cosmetics No. 50 Serum Anti-Aging Collagen Primer, Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Turbo Face Serum, Prada Candy Eau de Parfum, Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream, Bare Minerals Skin Longevity Vital Power Infusion

Let’s take a quick break from Project BOMB, shall we? You’ve probably noticed that I’ve picked up a ton of new goodies in the last few months but what you probably didn’t know is that I’ve also been determined to start using what’s already in my stash more. Whether you’re a beauty blogger or beauty enthusiast, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype of the hottest shiny new product but what really matters is actually using the stuff. No sense in wasting money on things you won’t use, right?

With this logic in mind, I decided to start going hard with a few products that I knew I could finish up with a little consistency and determination. In just a few months, I managed to finish up a handful of beauty products. Woo hoo! Most of it was skincare, of course, but I’m still pretty impressed that I was able to stick with these products for so long. Here’s a rundown of my January empties:

Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush Review

Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush

A clear, healthy complexion is easy to achieve when you have the right tools on hand. There’s a lot that goes into keeping your complexion in tip top shape including drinking lots of water, eating nutrient rich food, moisturizing and keeping your skin clean. All of which are easier said than done. If I had a dollar for every time I said I was going to exercise and eat better I’d be a millionaire by now. I just can’t seem to give up my precious pizza and various other junk foods but I always try to put my best food forward when it comes to keep my skin hydrated and clean. Which is only half the battle but a darn good start when carbs are your best friends. Gotta start somewhere right?

New Clinique Skin Goodies!

New Clinique Skin Goodies!

I’ve been sleeping on Clinique! A while ago, I went to a cluster training to learn more about their makeup and skincare products and I was completely blown away by how well they perform. Especially at such affordable price points. I was very intrigued after training and ended up trying a few things from my gratis bag that I absolutely loved including All About Eyes and the Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer. I soon discovered that Clinique isn’t the “old lady” brand that I once thought it was. Now, I’m starting to see the magic of Clinique and I’m starting to become a huge fan.

Man was June a hot month! And I’m not just talking about the weather. Last month, I touched (and bought) a lot of new makeup and skincare goodies that were unbelievably good. From the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick launch to the stunning Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Collection, we were up to our ears in hot makeup releases all month long. Of course, I ended up giving into temptation for a few of them here and there (which I loved!) but I also got a chance to try a couple of not so new products that turned out to be great too. So great that I just couldn’t put them down all month long. Here’s an overview of my top picks for June:

Summer Empties!

Buying new beauty products is easy. There’s always something shiny and new around the corner that tempts us to switch products in the blink of an eye. I know I’m guilty for changing my lipstick, highlight, eyeshadow and more on a regular basis so it seems almost impossible for me to use up all my makeup. Skincare, on the other hand, is a little different. Once I find a good skincare product I stick to it until the death of it. That’s how I’ve managed to rack up a small pile of skincare empties this summer. From cleanser to serum, I’ve actually managed to make a commitment to a few beauty products until the very end. Here’s a quick rundown of all of my summer skincare empties:

Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer Review

Clinique Turnaround Concentrate Extra Radiance Renewer

Achieving a healthy, radiant complexion isn’t just about dewy foundations, liquid illuminators and eye catching highlighters. The true key to a natural all over glow is by eating right, of course, and taking good care of your skin. A good skincare routine is super important to make sure your complexion stays nice and clear with a radiant glow. Adding a good mask to exfoliate and a good serum can work wonders for skin and give you that glow you’ve always longed for. Especially a good serum! Serums are like moisturizers on steroids as they contain a higher potency of skin loving ingredients without all the water and actively transform your skin with regular use over time.
