Hey guys! Guess what? This page has hit 1 million views!!! I'm so excited you have no idea. It's perfect timing because Algenist has reached out and wanted to do a giveaway for you guys of their new #Alive products. Which is the Alive Prebiotic Balancing Mask and Moisturizer SPF 15.
Let's talk about something I've been LOVING lately, which is the Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette. I know you hear or see "Dior" and the head tilts.... at least for me anyway because I start to think of the price. What I'm happy to say is that the "backstage" line is actually not nearly as expensive as you'd think.
Halloween is over. I'm slightly sad but also really enjoying the break my skin is getting from all the paints and liquid latex. I really tried to challenge myself more this year. This one up above is specifically inspired by Vicky Mon (@vickym0n on Instagram) she's amazing.
I typically do buying guides and gift guides for Sephora and Ulta or just a combination, but this year I'd like to extend it to other retailers as well. So right now Beautylish is doing an event where you get a $20 gift card with a purchase of $100 and there's no limit to how many gift cards you can get. So if you spend $200 that's two $20 gift cards. The other thing about Beautylish that I love is you can set up 3 payment installments on purchases of $100 and more and you pay for it over the course of 3 months and they come out automatically. So I wanted to give you a list of some items that I get from Beautylish and some of their best sellers as well.
I don't talk about primers very much on here. That's because there's very few that I like. However, Beauylish sent me the Lumilayer (Original) Primer and Lumilayer Metal Cushion by VDL which is new to their site and I wanted to discuss them
We're in the midst of the Sephora Friends and Family Sale right now and I must say this is like Christmas for me. So I always recommend your Buying Guide from products that I have tried and tested so that I'm not pointing in the dark.
However, I love to hear what people are going to buy as well. So I thought I'd give you my list of products I'm interested in. To start let me just say I try not to buy products that are also available at ULTA. Only because they do 20% off all the time especially around now and I like their point system better.
I was trying to think of a good post for today. I thought that I would tell you my favorite cleansers as of late. It's getting colder. The air is getting drier. I've been doing a ton of Halloween makeup so my skin has had a beating almost but not as bad because the cleansers that I've been using the most lately have been so effective but also so gentle. They've not dried my skin out. It's made this transition into colder weather so much easier.
Welcome to the second installment of the Sephora Friends and Family Buying Guide. This one will be all about skincare. I feel like skincare should get the majority of your attention but I do know that for a lot of people makeup seems more fun. However, being the skincare nerd that I am, I find them both exciting.
Lets get into it.
Well folks, it's about that time for the Sephora Friends and Family Sale. Which usually rolls around about this time of year. I use this sale mainly for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers from the travel section because....why not? I also use it to stock up on things I know that I'll re-buy like favorite foundations, any skincare favorites like cleansers or staples. I usually wait until this sale or anytime I have gift cards to buy things that I don't purchase very much at all like perfume.
So per usual I'm going to give you my buying guide. I've done this for several years where I recommend not necessarily "new" products, but products I've tested and liked through out the year and feel comfortable recommending. Of course, if there is anything you've had your eye on, now would be the time to buy it.
About a 3 weeks ago Neutrogena was kinda enough to send me their Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment tool. I refer to it as my "light pen". Lately, blue light therapy is being discussed much more in the skin care community. I hadn't tried any until now.
According to claims: "Blue light works to kill the bacteria and red light reduces inflammation, so your skin looks clearer and calmer." This is even better to travel with. It's best to use it 3 times a day. I don't have acne but I do have bumps that pop up occasionally especially right now with all the Halloween looks I'm doing. So I've used this quite a bit. I do find that it reduces the redness and inflammation around a spot or a breakout.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
