    Skinfix Foaming Oil Cleanser

    If you have been following me on here and/or on social media for a while then you know I have been lucky enough to be gifted some great products from Skinfix over the past two years. They make an array of wonderful products that are good for the skin and free from harmful things like parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, etc. They recently sent me their Foaming Oil Cleanser and I wanted to try it out right away so I could share my thoughts with you guys because it is going to be exclusive to Sephora starting April 2! This foaming oil cleanser is clinically proven to increase hydration, improve smoothness, reduce blotchiness,…

    Keeping Skin Looking Radiant Throughout Winter

    As the winter chill bites your skin, it actually sucks the moisture out of your skin cells. It’s a strange thing for most people because you would think that a hot sun of summer would do that. True, summer does mean you need to moisturize your skin more frequently but winter is probably just as prominent in this category. The thing is, there’s no humidity in the air during winter. This means that any natural oils on skin slowly begin to evaporate because there’s simply no equilibrium. The fact that there is water in the air means that your oils are not being sucked off your skin. The exact opposite…

    Aveeno – Positively Radiant

    Disclaimer: These products were sent to me complimentary, but all opinions are my own. I have been using Aveeno for years so when they sent me a few products from their Positively Radiant line, I was really happy. It’s always exciting to receive products, but it’s really nice to get things you already know and love. Aveeno sent me 3 products – their lotion, body wash, and Targeted Dark Spot Corrector. The body was the only product that I wasn’t familiar with. If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I’ve been struggling with acne scars and dark spots since earlier this year and I’ve been loving the…

    Skinkissed Vitamin C Serum

    I love skincare and I’m always up for trying new things to see how they’ll work on my combination skin. I’ve taken a liking to serums in recent years because of how they feel on the skin and all the amazing benefits they all have. I’m especially in to serums these days since they’re great to use before a jade roller. Lately I’ve been using the Vitamin C Serum by Skinkissed. I took it with me on vacation and it was so great because it helped keep my skin healthy while away and also the bottle is so compact that it’s easy to travel with! The bottle is glass though…

    Softsoap – Earth Blends

    I love trying new soap and bath products so when I was sent some products from Softsoap’s new Earth Blends line I was excited to try them out! The Earth Blends line is new to the Softsoap brand. The products are dye-free, paraben free, and are made from biodegradable cleaning ingredients. I love knowing that the products I’m using are safe and gentle on the environment. I was sent the body wash in the scent “Pomegranate & Plum”, hand soap in “Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber”, and two bar soaps in “Coconut Fig”. The soaps are so fragrant and moisturizing. The body wash has a thin, liquidy consistency and does provide…

    Live Clean Body Wash & Lotion

    One of the great things about blogging is that I get to try out so many different things. Whether I am sent products or I’m off buying them myself because I’ve heard so much about them – it’s always fun for me to try out all different kinds of products and I, of course, like to report back my thoughts to all of you. Lately, I’ve been using a body wash and lotion from Live Clean that were sent to me. I got the Bali Body Wash and the Argan Oil Body Lotion. What’s great about Live Clean is that they produce eco-friendly, gentle products with naturally based ingredients. And…

    Aveeno 60-Second In-Shower Facial

    Happy Saturday! Yesterday was my first day back to work after two snow days and I felt all sorts of out of it. Being back at work was fine, but I just wasn’t in the best mood all day and for no particular reason. I guess it was just one of those days, but today’s a new day and hopefully it’s a good one! If you have been following me for a while, then you know I love skincare and I’m always trying to improve my skin and complexion. I don’t remember where I first heard about this Aveeno 60-Second In-Shower Facial – it may have been through another blogger, but I…

    L’Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Serum

    I’ve mentioned this a few times in posts the past few weeks, but my skin has been crazy since November/December. Every time I think it’s finally under control, another blemish crops up. It’s mostly on my cheeks and it’s really annoying because as soon as my breakout on one cheek is gone, a pimple pops up on the other cheek! Anyway, as my body figures itself out, I’ve just been trying to take the best care of my skin as I can. One item I’ve been using the past few weeks is the L’Oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Serum. L’oreal describes the serum as: “L’Oréal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Serum contains…

    Desert Harvest – Aloe Vera Gele

    Aloe Vera is great for your skin and while many of us know it as a a skin soother after sunburn, but it can be used regularly for skin healing and as an anti-inflammatory. I’m always up for trying out skin products so when I received this Aloe Vera Gele from Desert Harvest I wanted to try it out. This Aloe Vera Gele is made from 80% pure aloe vera concentrate. Desert Harvest describes it as:  “a soothing, cold-processed gel formulated to relieve minor skin irritations. It contains all of the anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, and healing properties of the aloe plant in a high concentration. Desert Harvest Gelé contains the most therapeutic…

    Estée Lauder – Perfectly Clean

    Last year I stopped used makeup remover wipes (except for when I’m traveling – for convenience). I had read a lot about how those wipes can dry out your skin so I switched to oils and liquid removers. It’s better for your skin, plus it makes me feel like I’m helping the environment by not filling my garbage with wipes. Anyway, the two oils I’ve been using the past year are the Clinique’s Take the Day Off  and Mac’s Cleanse Off Oil. I wanted to switch things up when I was restocking recently and picked up the Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean Triple Action/Cleanser/Toner/Makeup Remover.  First, let’s see how the product is…
