Donkey Milk, Resurfacing, Glitter & More

I took a trip to Walmart the other day and picked up a few things. I ran out of my Skinfix glycolic pads, so I thought I’d try roc resurfacing disks. I thought they were just a pad that you swipe over your face and leave on like the others I had. Well, not so…

200 Followers!!

What can I possibly say that I haven’t already? I began writing this blog back in July of this year with the intent of sharing my love and knowledge of beauty and skincare – whether it’s completing reviews, showcasing different makeup looks, or my skincare routine – I enjoy it all immensely. Every single follower…

The Coveted Product for Acne

Hey, beauties! I’ve suffered from acne for most of my life. I have combination skin that’s dry in some areas and oily in the T-zone. My chin is littered with acne scars from picking at those nasty, painful cystic breakouts. One product that people rave about is Mario Badescu’s Drying lotion that contains sulfur, calamine,…

Masks, K-Beauty & Dupes

A little stop at CVS ended in me leaving with $60 less in my wallet! Granted, some of the beauty products were for my daughter, but I just couldn’t resist picking some things up for myself! The first item I bought was something I’ve been debating about. Iceland’s Hydrating Eye Stick was once again staring…

New Masks & Pore Minimizer That Works! – UPDATE

I took my mom to Walmart with the intention of buying more masks and specifically a pore eraser. The found brand Argan Mask is one that I’ve tried before, and I love it. I have also used the Soo Ae Gommage type mask, but I never saw one that had 2 steps. I love a…

Skin Care Products Wishlist

**All images are taken directly from both websites** I’ve been reading a lot of makeup wishlists lately, so I thought I’d write one that contained my most wished-for skincare products. I think I’m good with color cosmetics for now (but not that long)! I’ve written a lot about Josie Maran’s brand, and I do love it….

Minimal Makeup Day

Hey, beauties! I decided to go natural today – very natural! I’ve applied precisely three products on my face only. Products Used: Josie Maran Daily Argan Oil Moisturizer with tint / Physical 47 SPF Lipstick – still don’t know the brand  – it’s from the cosmetics trial test Laura Geller Tahitian Baked Bronzer The skin…

Best Dry Shampoo I’ve Used

Hey, beauties! I was never a fan of dry shampoo due to the white residue it would leave in my hair. I used to use baby powder to absorb the oil – yuck. I know many people love Batiste, and it even won an award for best dry shampoo. I’ve never tried it, however. I…

Makeup Look with It Girl Beauty Book

So, today I decided to experiment with my new beauty book. But, have you ever had a bad makeup day where you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing? That’s how I felt today. I’m not crazy about this look. I applied the eyeshadow wrong, in my opinion. I was dying to use that…

Chemical vs. Physical SPF

As a skincare/beauty junkie, I am always careful about using SPF all year round. Regardless of the season, it’s vital to use SPF even if it’s cloudy. I was using a skincare line faithfully and always wore a sunscreen in the form of makeup or a moisturizer that contained SPF. I was on a really…

It Girl Beauty Book Has Arrived!

I ordered this It Cosmetics Beauty Book made especially for the holidays. I’ve been so anxious to receive it, and it’s finally here! Look at this gorgeous packaging! Images without and with flash. I showed the one with the flash to highlight the stunning crystals. The layout is quite unique and perfect for traveling or…
