Summer Time Cleanser✨
I’m slowly becoming a fan of the brand Pūrlisse and I don’t hate it one bit! This is the second product I’ve tried from them and I adore it.This is a watermelon charcoal cleanser which is absolutely perfect for the summer.I would use the cleanser twice a day which left my skin brighter, cleaner and clearer after every use.It lasted me a little over a month and I love the results I revived from it.Although it’s a bomb cleanser it is over priced but thankfully I received this in my Allure box and was thankful to experience it.

Whitening Pen Fail
I’ve always been told I have a beautiful smile and I tend to feel self conscience when I remember that my teeth aren’t white enough to back up my smile.I decided to try out this whitening pen to whiten my teeth since it seems to be easier to use compared to white strips. I’ve used this for two weeks and sadly it did not give the results I was looking for.For some reason it unevenly whitened some of my teeth while the others look unchanged.I applied this one to twice a day for two to three weeks after brushing my teeth but not consistently since sometimes I’d forget.Although it did not work for me I really wish it did but that isn’t going to stop me on my journey to getting the pearly whites I deserve!

It’s Summer! Which means that the sun is out and my buns are out! I’m patiently counting down the days for my visit back the Caribbean and I honestly can’t wait.To prepare for this moment I needed to prepare my buns in advance.This is a part of the TRULY - Booty & Boobies Bundle and I’m sadden that this product finished faster than the TRULY - Acai Your Boobies Lifting Boob Polish Firm & Tighten . This product has made my buns smoother and plumper which is exactly what I need for my buns.I applied this about four to five times a week and love the results over time. It has a lovely smell and smooth texture which allows the product to glide over my skin when I apply it..This product has made a wonderful impact on my skin and I can’t wait to purchase more!

Boob Care ✨
Since it’s summer and I might get the opportunity to travel back to the Caribbean soon I made it my duty to specifically care for my boobs. This product is from the TRULY - Booty & Boobies Bundle and I love this product slightly more than the TRULY - Buns Of Glowry Tighten & Glow Smoothing Butt Polish .I use this four to five times a week and rub it on my boobs in a circular motion for a minute then let it absorb for five to ten minutes.From since using this my boobs have become softer,plumper and all round appealing.This product also smells and feels heavenly and it is always a joy when applying it.

Serum better than Castor Oil✨
Castor Oil is known to boost hair growth wherever one may want longer and fuller hair.This may be hair on one’s eyebrows,eyelashes or hair.For me castor oil takes longer for me to see results due to how irregular and inconsistent I may be with applying.With this eyebrow and eyelash serum I was able to see results after two consecutive days of use.My eyelashes grew longer and fuller while my eyebrows slightly got fuller.This growth has motivated me to apply it every time before bed with the goal of being consistent as consistent with it as possible.

This lip scrub exfoliates my lips leaving it plumped, pink and soft.It also leaves a lovely taste of vanilla and coconut on my lips. I use this at least two to three times a week and I’m wowed every time!

The best acne treatment mask I’ve ever used!
SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask The Sand & Sky pink clay porefining face mask is hands down the best clay mask that I have ever used. This mask can clear up ANY congestion and acne that you may possibly have, in just a short 10 minute mask session. I have gone through 4 whole jars of this magical mask in about 1.5 years. I will repurchase over and over again because honestly there’s not another clay mask out there that delivers these kind of results. I would recommend this mask for any skin type that is struggling with acne and congestion, just keep in mind that the dry skin types (such as myself) will need to HYDRATE after this one. It doesn’t strip your skin, per-say, but it is a little more drying and tightens your pores giving you a dry feeling afterwards. The main ingredients in this gem are: Australian clay, aloe leaf juice, vitamin e, witch hazel, dehdroacetic acid, lactic acid, and glycerin. It does contain some natural fragrance, which smells very fresh almost cucumbery to me, but it does not irritate the skin. The texture of this mask is a thicker paste, but smoothes onto the skin easily with the cute little included mask brush applicator. The texture starts as a wet clay and dries down within the 10 minutes you have it on. The mask feels very cooling and is one of the more comfortable clay masks that I have used. You can always sprits a face mist or toner to keep it from drying down completely! I think that the jar of product can go a long way and last a decent amount of time with frequent use, because the product spreads so easily and a little goes a long way. The price point is justified in my opinion because the results are THAT good and immediate. I highly recommend this product to anyone struggling with congestion, texture, and breakouts! 5/5 stars

Brooklynbotany Watermelon body scrub. This is the first time I've had the pleasure of trying any of their products & all I can say now is I WANT MORE!! 🙌 I've always been kinda " blah" with most body scrubs & polishes, but this one is so different from the rest. I could tell instantly after using it that whatever dead skin cells I had were gone. My skin beams when I get out it the shower now ( no lie). It's not too rough, yet just the right consistency to get the job done. I've used it 3 times now & each time I notice my skin seems more hydrated, radiant, & healthier than before. Let's not forget it smells incredible & leaves your skin smelling fruity fresh too! Packed with watermelon extract which is high in vitamin C & E, loaded with skin-loving amino acids, and because of the ingredients is better able to penetrate skin. I'm so glad to test this product out & can't wait to try more from their line!

Tips for Dealing with Acne!
There are so many products for acne, so today I’ll be writing about what you can do beyond that to help your skin! 1. Wash your pillowcase frequently: You should be washing your pillowcase at least every week (this is what I do). Some sources recommend even doing it every day, or every 2-3 days. Residual makeup, bacteria, dirt, and oil can build up on your pillowcase, thus interfering with your freshly washed face when you hit the sheets. Another tip is to use a fragrance-free detergent and avoid fabric softeners. 2. Wash your hands before applying products: We carry natural oils in the palms of our hands, which can contain bacteria that's easily transferred to your face and your products. By starting with squeaky clean hands, you'll avoid contaminating your skin and spreading persistent pimples and blemishes. 3. Wash your skincare tools: It is recommended to wash your skincare tools like makeup brushes, silicone face brush, etc. every week. Not only are dirty brushes gross, but they’re also one of the top causes of acne and irritation. Regularly cleaning your beauty tools will keep bacteria and build up off your skin and out of your pores. 4. Stick to a consistent routine: Stick with your skincare routine over a period of weeks, or months, and photograph your results. Consistency is key when dealing with acne-prone skin! The best way to see results with your skin is to keep coming back time after time, day after day, and sticking with it. In the end, you’ll see far more results with a long term plan than you will with a week-long “miracle treatment.” 5. Be patient: Results take time! Acne treatment needs time to work. Using a different product every few days can also irritate your skin, causing new breakouts. If a treatment works for you, you should notice some improvement in 4 to 6 weeks. It can take two to three months or longer to see clearing. 6. Wash your face twice a day & after sweating: Acne-prone skin is sensitive. Washing more than twice a day can irritate your skin, making acne worse. For best results, dermatologists recommend washing your face when you: 1) Wake up, 2) Are ready to go to bed, and 3) Have a sweaty face. 7. Resist touching, picking, and popping your acne: Popping a pimple may seem like the fastest way to clear it, but popping it can actually make things worse. Every time you touch, pick, or pop, you can worsen acne. 8. Enlist a dermatologist's help: If you still have acne after trying these tips—or you have acne cysts or nodules (deep blemishes that leave scars when they clear)—a dermatologist can help.
