Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Giveaway!

Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Giveaway

Hey girl! It’s been a few days since I’ve touched base with you and I’m feeling a little bad about that. If you follow me on Twitter and Snapchat (you should to see goodies first!) then you’ve probably been waiting on my Ulta holiday haul posts that I’ve been teasing you with for almost a week. I’ve just been so busy, girl! I’m getting back into the swing of things though and I want to give you a chance to win a couple of my favorite skincare goodies as my way of saying sorry for the wait. ‘Cause free gifts always make an apology better, right?

Let Your Skin Take a Deep Breath with Philosophy

Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oxygenating Oil Free Gel Cream & Oxygenating Eye Gel Cream

When the sun is beaming and causing a sweat, the best thing you can do is take a drink of water and a deep breath. That’s exactly the approach Philosophy took with the new Take a Deep Breath Oxygenating Gel Cream and Eye Gel Cream. They’re like a breath of fresh air and splash of water for your skin. The Take a Deep Breath line is suitable for all skin types but it works especially well for environmentally stressed dehydrated skin. You’re probably thinking, “Environmentally stressed? What does that mean?”

The sun isn’t your skin’s only enemy when you step outside. Environmental factors like pollution, free radicals and even wind can cause signs of early aging, clogged pores and even dry skin. Who knew outside could be such a nasty place? Apparently Philosophy! The Take a Deep Breath skincare line is exactly what you need to add to your routine to moisturize, protect and replenish your skin.

Makeup will always be my first love but skincare has definitely been growing on me over the past year. A healthy, even complexion is the key to flawless makeup so I’m always on the lookout for good skincare products that help my skin look its best. After lots of trial and error, I’ve crafted the perfect skincare regimen for my dry, sensitive skin and discovered some amazing products that work like a charm. It would be selfish of me to not share my favorite summer skincare goodies with my favorite peeps in the world so I’ve wrangled them all up so I could give you the scoop on all of them and also help you put together your perfect summer skincare routine.

3 Products Your Skin Needs After 25

Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer, Clinique All About Eyes, Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Serum

Let’s be honest. We aren’t going to stay young forever. It would be nice to discover that miracle fountain of youth but I don’t see it happening anytime soon. That’s why I’m putting together this quick “guide” to help you navigate your life when it comes to skincare after you turn 25. I’ve never had too many struggles with my skin before but I’ve noticed some changes to my skin after I turned 25. It began to feel even drier and required more moisture than it did a few years ago. I’ve developed some fine lines and thirsty spots that require constant moisture and attention. I freaked out for a second but I soon realized that I had to take a slightly different approach to taking care of my skin. Which is completely normal. Regardless of your skin struggles, we all could benefit from adding a few products to our skincare routines after 25 to make sure we age gracefully and give our skin everything it needs to look its best at all times.


Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Round Up

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty has come and gone and taken a chunk of my money. LOL! I definitely saw it coming though because the Beauty Steals and Hot Buys (we’ll discuss later) were just too good to pass up. Up to 50% off Prestige makeup, skin and nail goodies? Those are the kinda deals you just can’t miss! Prestige products almost never go on sale at Ulta so 21 Days of Beauty was the perfect time to stock up on favorites or try something new. I used the opportunity to try a lot of new products that were either already on my list or would have never crossed my mind but turned out to be pretty amazing. Basically, I had a lot of fun during 21 Days of Beauty!


Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul: Day 1

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty is now in full effect and I’m already clutching my wallet because I just know I’m going to go broke. There’s just too many good deals! Day 2 had some pretty nice deals but Day 1 was where it was at for me. Yesterday’s Beauty Steals included Prestige makeup and skincare including a cleanser, setting powder and lipsticks. Of course, I bought them all. The steals were just too good to pass up!

Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer Review

Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer

I’m sure we’ve all lost count how many times we’ve heard the age old advice,”Don’t sleep in makeup!” There’s many reasons for that though. For one, makeup can clog your pores and sleeping in your beat face can cause some serious breakouts–even acne. Secondly, your skin repairs and replenishes itself as you sleep so it’s best to give your skin room to breathe and do its magic simply by washing your face. Once you get removing your makeup every night down to a science it’s time to beef up your nightly skincare routine to really give your skin a helping hand at recharging itself at night.

One of the best products you can add to your nightly skincare routine is a good, hydrating night cream. Every night, skin works to create fresh, new skin cells and push them to the top layer for a clear, glowing complexion. There’s lots of things that can slow down that process though. Factors like lack of sleep, aging, an unhealthy diet and more can make the overnight recharging process a struggle causing dull, dry skin that looks flaky and uneven while causing noticeable signs of aging. That’s why we all need a good night cream. No matter how young or old you are.
