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:

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:


Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Foaming Cleanser Review

The best part about being a girl is getting to sit in front of the mirror for over an hour beating your face to perfection. From perfectly blended smokey eyes to a stunning highlight and sharp contour, I just love sitting in front of my vanity and laying out a full face of makeup to look more fierce than ever before. That’s what being a girl is all about! However, one of the best feelings in the world is when you get to go home and take it all off so your skin can breathe freely and, alas, you can wipe your eyes. Sweet relief!

I have no idea why I’m always so eager to rub my eyes at the end of a long day but it’s like second nature once I finally make it home and sit in bed to catch up on my favorite shows. That’s why some nights I immediately rush to the bathroom to remove my makeup so I can rub my eyes and pass out watching TV in peace. Because there’s nothing worse than falling asleep without removing your makeup and waking up in a panic that your skin may or may not end up falling off by the end of the week. Yikes!

Goodbye February and hello March! I’m so ready to shake these winter blues and jump head first into spring. Especially after all of the new spring releases and collections that have been popping up at Ulta lately. They make me super anxious! And also make me super broke LOL! I ended up buying a ton of new products last month from nail polish to tons of makeup because February was such an exciting month at Ulta. On the bright side, though, I ended up loving pretty much everything I bought so I’d say February was a pretty great month for me.


Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask Review

At the ripe age of 26, I wouldn’t exactly say that anti-aging benefits is on the top of my skincare priority list but it isn’t too far off. On the surface, it seems a little silly because I have rather clear skin and a healthy complexion that leaves people perplexed when I tell them about the anti-aging products I love to use. I get it. I don’t exactly look like I could use any anti-aging benefits but my skin would beg to differ. On the regular, I hear lots of ladies complaining about oily skin but little do they know that yesteryear’s oil slick is actually a helping hand when it comes to aging. All that excess oil produced by oily skin leaves skin more plump and smooth over time resulting in a more youthful appearance free of severe fine lines and wrinkles. Now dry skin? That’s another story!

Dry skin seems like less of a headache because there’s no worry about your favorite makeup sliding off halfway throughout the day. Or the need to carry around blotting papers. But dry skin isn’t completely struggle free. In fact, dry skin can actually speed up the aging process making skin look dull, flat and littered with fine lines and wrinkles. Which is extremely annoying. Especially when it comes to makeup and skincare.

So I grabbed my current 5 favorite masks to help your skin radiate and glow like no tomorrow. Check it out!


Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots Review

Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots

Sundays are all about skincare and Peter Thomas Roth is giving me the skin fix of a lifetime. After a fun weekend in LA, my skin was beginning to suffer a bit. Nothing too major. Just the annoying rash of tiny bumps all over–like an allergic reaction or something. I haven’t been using anything new lately but I drank a lot more alcohol and indulged in a ton of greasy food and loads of carbs everyday while on vacation and I think my skin is starting to feel the effects of it. Don’t you hate that?

I love makeup as much as the next girl but the older I get and the more I learn about skincare, the more I fall in love with it. A beat face is always eye catching but what truly sets it off is a clear, glowing complexion. Because what good is beautiful art painted on a canvas that’s dull and lackluster?

That’s why I’m loving that January is Glowing Skin month at Ulta. Winter can wreak havoc on skin so it’s important to arm yourself with the essentials to fight those winter skin blues so all your new makeup from Christmas can go on smoothly and help you look even more flawless.
