I recently got the opportunity to try a really amazing eye cream. I've been testing it for around a month. I'm going to start by saying that up until this, I didn't feel like eye creams did anything other than soothe the eye area. I didn't notice great benefits from them and for a long time I didn't bother using a specific eye cream and would often use a balm or bring my super thick or rich creams, that were safe to use around the eye, up around the eye area. This changed my mind.
It's time for a "Why Isn't Anyone Talking About This?" post. This time it's hard to say what this product is other than a base. It's the Color Me Underglow Hydrator and I love it. I've worn it as foundation, I've used it under foundation, and over foundations. I've used it as a base for highlight on the cheekbones. So for me it's very versatile.
I'm going to be honest, I'm not a Charcoal fan that much. Not that I hate it, I just haven't seen as many benefits from it in order for me to really love Charcoal products. However, I love Exuviance. So when I got to use the Detox Mud Treatment (mask) I was happy to give it a whirl.
I've had the pleasure of getting to use a new serum from a company that I hadn't been acquainted with yet. It's called the First Light Serum and it's from Ceramiracle. This product opportunity came about at a time when I was in desperate need of intense hydration for my very very dehydrated and dry skin. I've went through that whole problem/issue in my Stressed Skin Go To's post.
Ok guys, I finally got the Jaclyn Hill palette.....yes I know, bit late to the game there Erin. I got it because, if you don't know, some of Morphe products are sold in store and online at Ulta Beauty. So the reason that I don't have Morphe palettes in my collection aside from the Kathleen Lights and Morphe collab is because the shipping was ridiculous. Like forget the 10% code Morphe, give me a free shipping code and I'm cool with it. Not to mention a regular palette costs around $23 I think, Jaclyn Hill's palette costs $38. So add in roughly about $12 in shipping, which I find weird because you can buy a whole crap load of brushes and ship it USPS for $4 but buy a palette and it's like $12 and FedEx. Not sure if you think FedEx is safer because they nearly broke the glass on my door from throwing a package so hard against it.....but I digress.
Not done a haul in a minute, so lets do one! I was going to wait until next week but I thought it would be best to do it now so that it's not super overwhelming and "too much" infomation. So this is going to be a skincare haul. Some of the stuff was sent so I will put * beside those so that you know. Some of these have been tried and some have not.
For a while I've had the opportunity to observe the effects of Curel's Ultra Healing Intensive Lotion. My mother has very thin and aging skin, it breaks easily and is dry constantly. She's always used lotions multiple times a day for as long as I can remember. For the last month she's been using the Curel Ultra Healing Intensive Lotion that they sent me. It's made a vast improvement in her skin all over but especially her hands and arms.
I've been trialing an eye cream for the past month or so I would say. It's the Neostrata Intensive Eye Cream. I am a hardcore skeptic of eye creams. I tend to bring moisturizers and oils up instead of getting a dedicated eye cream. However, when I have to test an eye cream I use it continuously until I have a good feel for it.
Anastasia is always surprising us with launches out of nowhere. It's part of the reason I love them so much. For the holidays they released several things but one of those being PRISM palette. I seen it and fell in love with it because I just thought it was so different. It's been an interesting journey so far, this is going to be long.
It's time for another "Why Isn't Anyone Talking About This?". Which I seem to be doing a lot of recently. This is a really good one that I've been using for over a month. So let's not waste anytime.
I actually got this in the Allure Beauty Box a month or more ago. I can truthfully say that it's definitely made me want the full size, and I use it quite a bit especially when my skin can't handle any harsh acid toning or retinols. It's the Hey Honey I Peel Good. It's basically honey consistency and you rub it in a circle on your skin....I know what your thinking "oh and your "dead skin balls up"? *unimpressed*" NO! That's what so cool about it. You rub it in a circle until it becomes a very thin, oil like consistency and then you rinse it off. It doesn't ball up any skin and hand over heart there is a noticeable difference in my texture. I was super skeptical. As soon as I seen it was an AHA free peel I thought it would be something that wasn't very good. I'm happy to say I was so wrong.
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.
