TOP 5 FAVORITE COMPLEXION PRODUCTS
I’ve been organizing and decluttering my collection and it got me thinking what were the complexion products I’ve been picking up the most? 🤔 Here are my top picks: 1. Kosas Revealer Concealer (Tone 7) : this is the most comfortable concealer I have ever worn! As I get older, my under eyes are more sensitive and I need products that are going to keep them nourished 💖 2. Elf Hydrating Camo Concealer (Medium Beige) : instead of color correcting with an actual color correct, I like to use a warm concealer with balance out discoloration. This concealer does that while also keeping my skin hydrated ✨ 3. Undone Beauty Unfoundation Glow Tint (Almond Latte Medium) : this is the only skin tint I have that doesn’t add more oil than I already have, while also being lightweight 🙌🏽 such a beautiful product! 4. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Foundation (320) : If I want to get dolled up (which I haven’t done in a while lol) I want to wear something that will look good on camera but not make me look cake-y... this is the foundation for it 😍 5. Kosas Tinted Face Oil (Tone 7) : this tinted moisturizer surprised me because I thought I was going to look like a shiny, oily egg. Surprisingly it does not! The oils sink into the skin so beautifully like a nighttime face oil and it’s beautiful!

Unboxing with me 03
It's my first time buying glossier products. The packing is adorable and girly. The mascara is their top-rated product, and lots of YouTubers recommend it. I tried it after recording this video. It's lightweight and can build a very clear eye look.Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara The cloud paint is their bestseller, and I chose two shades, Beam and Storm. The Beam is an orange tone color, suitable for spring and summer. The Storm is a red bean shade looks very gentle on my face. I can say it's perfect for all seasons.

How to Identify Your Curl Type and Why Every Curly Girl Should Know It
Although curly hair is generally used as an umbrella term – it doesn’t account for every curl type. Determining your curl type can be quite difficult as there are a number of different curl patterns ranging from 2a – 4c. Each hair type comes with its own unique set of challenges and characteristics and it is actually very important to know your curl type. When it comes to identifying your specific curl type, there can be some confusion as one head may have multiple different curl patterns and textures. So, how can you find out which of the 9 curl types match your hair? It takes an understanding of your hair, the numerous curl patterns and a whole lot of patience.
What IS this sorcery??? First impressions...
Cocokind has been a brand I’ve seen all over Instagram but I haven’t been able to try them until now! I recently picked up their turmeric stick cocokind - Turmeric stick since I saw how powerful it was on others at healing acne spots and inflammation. Their turmeric stick is a blend of turmeric, ginger, and tea tree oil that is supposed to be used as a 20 minute spot treatment mask on acne spots/breakouts. I saw one of my friends using it was an overnight mask overtop her PM routine so I wanted to try doing the same! Application: I rubbed the stick on the back of my hand instead of putting it directly on my face...I did not want to spread any bacteria or compromise the formula of the stick by putting the stick directly on my face. It was visibly yellow which is fun since I’m used to that with my other turmeric skincare products. I was immediately surprised at the texture—it’s quite oily! I’m used to turmeric products being kind of drying. It was so oily in fact that about 2 hours after application it felt heavy on my skin so I ended up gently removing excess product with a tissue and O M G. My previously painful healing acne spots were less red and didn’t hurt at all when I touched them! The “after” pic is the morning after and you can see such a difference! It brought most of my breakouts to a nice white head really quickly, speeding up the healing process! It really blew me away as a first impression! This stick was $9 at Target and I highly recommend picking one up if you get breakouts and have a hard time getting them to clear up quickly. It’s about double the size of a regular chapstick so I imagine it’s going to last me a while! I have to rate it 4/5 stars just because it got pretty oily/slick after 2 hours on my face.
TWO WEEK SKIN TRANSFORMATION!!
This whole year I’ve been struggling with persistent acne again and I’m not sure what had caused it. I didn’t have much of a routine until now and just look at the difference! I’m actually amazed and so happy with how fast the results were! Thanks to this app I have found out what products to actually stay away from and which ones work best for me. Before, I was using the clean and clear acne set which included the cleanser, spot-treatment, and moisturizer, but I used that for months and months without any good results. The spot-treatment would help with redness overnight but that’s about all I noticed. Now that I’ve looked more into skincare and figured out what would be best for my skin type (combination skin) and acne, my skin is so much better as you can see, and in just a short amount of time! Here’s the products that have helped me achieve these results. CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin I’ve been using this every morning and night, and have found it to be much less irritating and drying than the clean and clear cleanser I was initially using. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I put this on after cleansing my face morning and night and I’m in love with the results! Definitely lives up to the hype. CeraVe - SA Lotion For Rough & Bumpy Skin The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution I’ve also been using this exfoliating solution out twice a week and it works amazing! (Although, I wouldn’t recommend if you have very sensitive skin) I hope this post gives hope to others who have been struggling with acne recently, I know how much it sucks to have acne in the summer. I’ve been trying to hide it with tons of makeup and have turned down going to the beach so many times in fear my makeup would wash off... If you think these products will work for you then give them a try! If you’re not seeing results with your current routine then don’t be afraid to try something new. I’m very glad I decided to make a switch, I was scared how my skin would react at first, but I’m so happy that in the end I stuck with my decision.
