Summer Edition: Top 10 Products for Better Skin

Summer Edition: Top 10 Products for Better Skin

Man I conquered yesterday like a boss!

I was able to get a ton of household chores done because my house looked like a total disaster.  [At least in my eyes] 

Toys were everywhere, J had shoes thrown all over the house and laundry was at it's wits end.  The problem with laundry I guess, is that it is never ending then E and I have wayy to much clothes.  I have boxes in our garage that need to go to the donation center asap.

Current Skin Care Routine

Hi there loves! 

Times are changing for your girl, I wasn't too impressed with my skin care routine and was in need of some desperate moisture.  I found myself at Ulta grabbing all of the things. 

Keep reading if you want to hear more about my current skin care routine and what I did to take my skin from drab to fab! 

I am going to go over all of the amazing things I have been doing to keep my skin healthy this year.  But first if you haven't read what I eat to keep my skin looking great read this post from last week! 

My normal skin care routine was using Dove Body was on my face to remove my make up and then using regular lotion on my face too.  I know, I know!  I didn't think anything of it until I started wearing make up and my face would feel so dry and blah underneath it all.

While I love makeup and creating looks for the blog, I want to make sure that I am starting with great skin before I apply anything on my face.  I also would love to prevent wrinkles and all that jazz. 


When I walked into Ulta the girl was restocking this brand and told me it was pretty great, I know how sometimes they are there to promote a specific product during a certain time. 

But when I noticed the pricing, she told me that Mario Badescu didn't use fancy packaging so that he could keep cost down so great skin care products could get in the hands of women & men everywhere. Without outrageously breaking the bank, so of course naturally I bought it all.  


The glycolic foaming cleanser is used just 2-3 times a week to help with a subtle clean. 

The cleansing milk is by far my favorite because it feels like you are applying lotion then washing it away but still keeping all of the moisture.  

The facial spray is great for setting makeup and using during those hot days when you need a little less sweat on your face and a little more Rose water.  


The glycolic eye cream & skin complex has been so so good for my skin. It feels so refreshed and soft after just a couple of days. Jaxon would even rub my face at times because it was so soft. 


The Neutrogena Triple age repair, I picked up to try while I was shopping at Wal-Mart & overall it is a great product, I love that it has SPF 25 in it so I'm also getting sun protection as well. 


The hyaluronic eye cream is absolutely amazing at night, I typical don't ever feel

The Rodan & Fields - bright eye complex has been assisting with moisture and those naturally inherited dark circles, now this isn't an overnight success product but I have been loving the changes I have noticed.  


This is my go-to mask when I just want a skin refresher, I don't do it everyday even though this is a product you totally can use daily. I use it maybe once or twice every two weeks. 

And that sums it up for my current skin care routine.

Be sure you are avoiding things that make you break out as much as humanly possible, and making sure you are getting more nutrients that benefit your skin. 

If there are any products you are loving I'd love to know more, catch up with me on social or email me I'd love to hear from you! 




Products I love | May 2017

Now that May is over with, I can't believe it.  I figured I would go over some products that I am currently loving.  I am thinking about making this a thing every month.  I dunno let me know your thoughts. 


It's a 10 hair care

Since J was born I have been having so much trouble with my hair because of all the fall out from the medications used during birth. At times I wonder if I just went through radiation or I have a bald spot somewhere I can't find.  It is one of those things they don't tell you when you have a baby. 

I can't say that this is helping my hair but it helps during brush out.  From what I read on other blogs it says to make sure you are mostly brushing your hair when it is wet, and try to use something like a detangler, etc.  Do yourself a favor and don't color your hair after baby regardless of what it looks like.  My hair was doing great until I decided to cut and color it, I only heard of the fall out at the salon as I was getting my hair colored and thinned out because it was so thick from the prenatals. 

I am currently using a few sprays after showering before brushing to help with brush out.  I don't blow dry my hair because the less heat the better.  I let my hair air dry after spraying in the It's a 10 treatment, for me it works great. 


Dove Shampoo & Conditioner Coconut and Hydration

I typically use Dove Shampoo and while I currently have color treated hair it probably isn't the best option for my hair but it is keeping my hair feeling amazing.  I have been using this for a few weeks now and I don't think I will stop any time soon.  I do use a cleansing shampoo and with tea tree oil once a month and that also seems to help. : ) 


Dove Spray Deodorant

I bought this after watching the Dove commercial.  I was a little weary because I normally don't use the spray deodorant because I just never have liked the feeling once you spray them but this one is different.  It still has that cool spray feeling but immediately disappears, I haven't noticed any of the deodorant on my clothing once I take it off and I love it.  I bought this pink one. 


Almay One Coat Mascara

I talked about this on my instagram but I think I deleted it for whatever reason.  This does say one coat mascara and I had to use a couple of coats for the "look" that I was going for but without the need for lashes my own lashes looked amazing.  I am currently wearing lash extension so I am not wearing mascara but when these come off this is one of my go to mascaras.  

I also recommend layering just to get a fuller look to your lashes. 


Pure Silk Shaving Cream   

I picked this up because I am really bad when it comes to shaving and I normally just use soap and water, I know bad decision.  After shaving with Pure Silk I am in love it is so soft and I love the new canister that doesn't leave that ugly rust stain in my shower.  

Plus the scent is amazing, win, win.
