Best Cleansing Balm!
The hype is real y’all. BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original Coming from Ponds cold cream to this is going to make it hard to finish the ponds. This balm goes on as a balm and rinses off with water! With the ponds, you have to wipe the muck off with cotton rounds. TOTAL GAMECHANGER It’s so simple to remove and takes off my daily mineral tinted sunscreen well. Don’t get it in your eyes though because it does sting. Leave that to the eye makeup remover. ❤️❤️❤️

Brazilian Bum Bum Alternative (much cheaper$$)
Y’all. This. Is. A. Score!!!!! It feels so good, works so well, my skin is plump and happy; not ashy! So is my budget. The smell isn’t irritating (actually surprisingly pleasant, and that’s huge considering most scents give me a headache) MINERAL FUSION - Body Lotion, Earthstone ” Clean” product: 💯% vegetarian, NO animal testing, free of gluten, parabens, SLS, artificial fragrance and colors Minerals: Copper, Zinc, Manganese, & Iron strengthen skin’s defenses and provide ANTIOXIDANT protection HYALURONIC Acid, Sunflower seed oil, Coco butter, Myrtle extract = 24 hr hydration & cell turnover Smooth and healthy skin results from Vitamin B, C, E Supports the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence Pricepoint: $12 for 8oz! I got this on sale and I can tell you that it’s these kinds of excellent finds that keep me buying unknown products. What’s not to love?? I should mention that this is NOT a dupe for Brazilian bum bum cream as it does not contain caffeine and and isn’t marketed to improve cellulite. In it’s defense, it’s a cleaner product so may prove less irritating to those who have an allergy to bum bum. Try it and tell me how you like it!

The BEST haircut of my life-Have u heard of LIH?
Lived-in-hair (LIH) is a method of style created by Anh Co Tran. He’s a renowned specialist sought out by celebrities and common folk alike for his expertise. Only recently has he begun to train stylists in his signature effortless look. The “soft undercut technique creates texture and natural movement”, an elusive goal for fine, straight hair girls like me. Finding the right stylist for your hair, the right cut for your texture, is finding gold. It might take a lifetime but it’s worth the effort to continue the search. I’ve never been happier with my hair! GOAAAAAAALLLLLLL
The 🗣SECRET SuPeRPoWER of this new product
Guess what y’all! I got sent these new StriVectin - Daily Reveal Exfoliating Pads complimentary from Influenster and they are illuminating. They have AHA BHA and TXA. The exfoliation is not only chemical but also slightly physical from the pad itself. They are great for lightening the skin and treating melasma. Also, for getting rid of blackheads. Which is where the unexpected superpower comes into play. Have you ever gotten clogged pores in your ears? Like blackheads in the outer portion of your ear canal? They are so embarrassing 🙉. How the F do u get rid of them? We apply sunscreen to protect our ears but how do we clean them!? Qtips? Cleanser? Toner? I’ve tried it all and NOTHING has cleared those blessed clogged ear pores like this product. It’s so AMAZING to find these work well not only for my face, but for other application! They are pretty intense so I wouldn’t use them daily as recommended unless you have tough skin. Use them at night and be sure to wear sunscreen the next day! There is a 25% off of strivectin on their website right now and if u have a need for some effective exfoliation, i would say these are worth it! 🤭👂🏻✔️👀🥰

Kylie Velvet Lip
This is an ok lip, it does have some transfer and I would definitely recommend scrubbing and lining your lips before application. It isn’t really hydrating but it’s a cute, modern color. I wouldn’t pay $17 for it since it doesn’t have any extra lip/skincare benefits.

The BEST mascara for healthy eyelashes
Have you had falsies but looking to give your eyes a break? Suffer from brittle lashes or loss of lashes? Maybe your just looking to clean up your beauty bag. Well, look no further my friends! Kosas - The Big Clean Volumizing + Lash Care Mascara is here for all your daily eyelash health needs! There is a great trend happening right now that is adding skin care treatments to your everyday makeup. Yes, you too can NOURISH all your bits and pieces while also making them GLAMOROUS. How fantastic 🙀 This particular mascara is: “Clean” Good for eyelash health Works fantastic Creates long, full, fluffy lashes without clumping Easy to remove Because it is easy to remove, there may be some smudging if you work 12hr days like me, so take a peek in the mirror at hour 6. It’s so easy to touch up though. I can’t tell you how happy I am to not have to scrub the grunge off my eyes 👀 3x at night and still wake up with raccoon eyes. I think this is a great everyday wear for a casual environment, but if you are depending on your look to stay perfect at the red carpet perhaps consider something with more staying power. There’s a cost to clean makeup 🤷🏻♀️ yet I’m happy to pay it to know I’m keeping my peepers safe. Have you tried this mascara? Tell me what you think!!! 👁

Perfect Match for Pigmentation
Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence+Kiehl's Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution Main Ingredients: 96% Snail Mucin / Ascrobic Acid, White Birch Extract As we all know snail mucin or can be called snail slime helps to moisturize skin, promote collagen production, and aids in skin healing and regeneration. Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence contains up to 96.3% of snail secretion filtrate which helps to protect the skin from moisture loss while improving skin elasticity. Snail mucin helps repair and soothes red, sensitive skin after breakouts by replenishing moisture. So it suits me very well since i'm a sensitive dry skin. It's a little bit sticky but absorbs very well. It really add water to my skin because i normally use it at night and wake up with bump skin. I don't like Korean skincare products normally, but this one really beyond my expectation. It's cheap and effective. Kiehl's Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution is the product i recently add to my skincare routine, after the snail essence. It certainly improved my hyperpigmentation. I got some acne scars and really want to remove them. After few weeks, i definitely see an improvement of my scar. They star to fading. The combination of these two products help improved my skin recovery and brightening, moisturizing as well. I do like this match.

6 Skincare Tips from a Celebrity Esthetician
It’s been eight weeks since COVID-19 has caused us to shelter in place with the goal of putting an end to the novel coronavirus. While social distancing is playing an essential role in our health, the same can’t be said for our beauty routines. For beauty buffs, the lockdown has meant an abrupt halt to our routine visits to our facialists, dermatologists, and everything in between. What’s more, staying indoors has limited our exposure to vitamin D (which our skin needs to thrive), heeded unhealthy eating habits (which can wrack havoc on our skin), and turned us all into our very own (albeit mildly inexperienced) esthetician. To ensure our skin and well-being is taken care of during such a confusing time, we tapped into celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau. Below, she’s sharing six self-care tips to practice as you social distance.

MAGICAL Cellulite Cream Collection! 👆 With Powerhouse Ingredients!
Here comes ur daily reminder, cellulite. It is estimated that about 90 percent of all women have it. Cellulite is often due to hormones, genetics, and poor blood circulation, and the common causes can be weight gaining and a lack of exercise. Sadly, it is quite hard to get rid of it! With this concern, cellulite creams have been splurging on all kinds of beauty magazines. However... Do they really work? Well, actually, it depends on which type of cellulite cream that you spend your money hun! There are ONLY 3 ingredients that have been approved effective for your dimpling fat: Caffeine: Caffeine is a powerhouse ingredient that can cause the blood vessels to constrict and the fat cells to shrink temporarily. Thus, it is one of the most responsible ingredients that can firm your skin. Retinol: Retinol is able to penetrate the skin to increase collagen production, which makes your skin thicker and hides the dimpling fat. Dimethylaminoethanol or DMAE: It is an antioxidant derived from fish. When being combined with amino acids, it can stimulate the muscles to contract and become firmer. Therefore, when you are looking for cellulite cream, DO check the ingredients before buying! The pic I've posted has recommend the products that work MAGICALLY with the special concern that they target! You can choose the most suitable one. Hope to give you some inspiration! However, the truth is that no miracle cream has the power to kill cellulite totally. All they can do is to help reduce the loose appearance. Thus, you can't fully rely on these products. If you really wanna shake off your cottage cheese-like appearance, grab a towel and hit the gym lol!

does the order of skincare products matter?
hey everyone!! today I’ll be talking about the order of skincare products and why it’s important to have order with them 🌟 going off this graph, I do not use an eye cream and my routine is the “day” order for both morning and night routines. you should be applying your skincare products in order of thinnest to thickest. this is because the thicker products like moisturiser, eye cream etc, take longer to penetrate into the skin. if you were to put your thinner products after the thicker ones, then those products may not be getting their full effects. 1. cleanser helps to get rid of dirt, oil, makeup, sunscreen off of your face from the day. cleansing is the most important step of a skincare routine my favourites CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser 2. toner toner helps to reset your pH level and aids in getting rid of the excess oil, dirt etc. (you do not need a toner! for some people, this is an unnecessary step and they may not need it 🤗 ) my favourite PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner 3. serum everyone’s serum needs are different, apply your favourite my favourites NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% NATURIUM - Azelaic Topical Acid 10% The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil 4. eye cream again like toner, some people love using eye cream, others don’t, it’s all up to you and your skincare needs :) 5. moisturiser hydration !! my favourites CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream 6. SPF sunscreen is super important during the day, even if it’s not sunny outside, SPF is crucial. my favourite LE TAN COCONUT SPF 15
