I love to find amazing products that work with my skin and share them with family, friends and followers ♥️
Will not use again!
I always like to start my post off as positive as I am able especially when I have a brand or product that does not work well for my skin. So, before I start let me just say I absolutely LOVE this brand but I do not love their Kiwi daily gentle cleanser. This is one after cleansing my face just didn’t not feel clean at all. Please use the toner soaked round picture for reference. I still had a ton of makeup/yuck residue on my face and I noticed small breakouts while using and I believe that is due to my face just not getting as clean as it’s accustomed. I didn’t just use this once and give up on the product. I used this for over two weeks. I will say if you don’t have oily skin, if you don’t wear makeup this could be your product. If you don’t want your cleanser to lather at all this could be your cleanser. I do have other OFRA skin products that I am obsessed over and will use them as long as they are available. However, the Kiwi cleanser is one I will have to leave on the shelf. I would suggest going with their vitamin c cleanser as it’s wonderful OFRA - Kiwi Cleanser
The RMS BEAUTY Tinted Daily Lip Balm is one of my newest obsession. I love everything from packaging that is very modern, clean looking, sophisticated but also fun. I was so happy to an able to get TWILIGHT LANE chocolate, berry and mauve colors are my jam for lip color. I was very excited to give this a try. I wear lip balm all year around 24 ~ 7 ~ 365 and this has easily 😍 quickly become my newest tinted lip balm obsession. Yes, I am making that bold statement. I am so over the top picky about my lip products and especially lip balm. Many I have tried in the past have dried my lips out and even actually caused them to chap (explain that one) the struggle is real. The RMS TWILIGHT LANE is a beautiful color and it is sheer but can be somewhat buildable. However, in a lip balm I didn’t want a ton of color or pigmentation. I use the lip balm strictly for the moisture therapy and I apply it before I start my cosmetic routine so when I get to lips they are well moisturized and ready for the days lip color. I apply my lip products directly on top and sometimes leave it that way and other times I also use it as a topper as it does give a glossy effect. These are not gooey or sticky in anyway. The melt into the lips like creamy butter. I have two of the four and will be picking the other two up when they are back in stock. rms beauty - Tinted Daily Lip Balm

Magic face wash, not so magic!
Florence By Mills, Clean Magic Face Wash ~ I picked this up from Ulta on a whim. I was away from home for a few days and had forgotten to pack my normal cleanser. I knew I could pick it up from Ulta on the way so it was not a problem but Ulta was out of the cleanser I normally use. I started looking around and came across the Florence By Mills products. I have to say the packaging did catch my eye as it’s very cute and clean looking. I do like the packaging. I picked up the cleanser and read the claims and I loved that it said it could be used as a cleanser on wet skin or makeup remover on dry skin and at a $12 price point I was very excited to give it a try. As far as my skin, I am 45 with combo skin, some texture, pores and a few fine lines. I don’t have sensitive skin at all. The cleanser does not lather and I do like a cleanser that does have a lather (just my preference) it is very creamy and slick feeling. I cleansed my face as normal. Immediately noticed mascara was still around my eyes heavily, foundation was still on my face in spots and my skin just did not have that clean feeling. I then tried it on dry skin as a makeup remover. I added a little to my fingers, massaged it into my skin and used a cotton round to wipe off. I had to do this a few times as makeup was still coming off. At this point I was pretty much done with the cleanser. I always use a toner before all the serums and creams. I applied my toner on a cotton round and wiped and I was not shocked when even more makeup came off. Finally I got my skin cleaned enough to finish my skincare. Needless to say, this product is a no go It just didn’t work for me. I was very happy that where I had went to visit family Ulta was only about 5 min. away. I got online ordered my regular cleanser and picked it up curbside the next day. florence by mills - Clean Magic Face Wash

Budget friendly and effective
Budget friendly at only $9.49 body scrub that helps so much with body acne. This comes in both body wash and body scrub. I personally prefer the body scrub as it is super exfoliating without leaving your skin raw, burning and irritated. I am 45 and I don’t suffer much from body acne but I do get those tiny little bumps on my upper arm. I use this daily, I love that it’s oil free, won’t clog pores, leaves skin feeling clean, without a residue and has a really nice citrus smell that is not overwhelming. This clears those tiny bumps right up. The packaging is simple and clean. The price is perfect and if you keep a watch on the Neutrogena brand they usually run specials of buy one, get the second half off and sometimes the second bottle is free. I do recommend the Neutrogena body scrub as it does cleans deep into pores and sloths away dead skin. Neutrogena - Body Clear Body Scrub With Salicylic Acid

Smells absolutely fantastic
Y’all, I have found it. The dupe for the Brazilian Bum Bum cream! Victoria’s Secret has no idea I am even doing this post they don’t even know I exist. These items are all on sale for $10 each at the moment and all 3 can be purchased for less than the cost of the Bum Bum cream. They smell absolutely Heavenly! The lotion is so silky, creamy, buttery soft and hydrating. You can’t go wrong with this set. The scrub, again, Heavenly and does an amazing job at exfoliating the skin without being abrasive. Finally, the body wash, the same Heavenly smell as the lotion and scrub. Silky, lathers super well and leaves your skin feeling clean, hydrated and smooth. This is a scent for all ages and will leave people asking what scent are you wearing? VICTORIA'S SECRET - Honey Lotion with Shea Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion

Minimize pores & fine lines with Honeymoon Glow
FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum What is this? A serum that claims to resurface, hydrate, and clarify skin with its special blend of AHAs, BHAs, and a flower acid blend. This product is marketed toward people with skincare concerns such as pore size, fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of firmness of the skin. While the acids work to treat hyperpigmentation and reduce the appearance of pores, hyaluronic acid in the serum hydrates and plumps the skin, and Farmacy’s special honey blend soothes. The consistency of the serum is fairly thick for a serum but not at all heavy. It’s slightly sticky after application but after giving it time to fully sink in that feeling goes away. If it doesn’t, that might mean you applied too much. I’ve had this product for about half a year now and I’ve come to love it so much. Farmacy recommends using one to two pumps 2 or 3 nights a week. I find that what works best for me is one pump 2 nights a week. I thought this would be a really gentle resurfacing serum and I was right, it’s perfect! Some people notice slight tingling for a couple minutes after application, but I’m a seasoned acids user, so I didn’t notice any tingling. I notice reduced appearance of pore size, and a plump and soft complexion mornings after using this serum. It seriously makes my skin feel like a baby! I noticed immediate results the morning after using (what I mentioned above) but long term, this serum has really helped to improve hyperpigmentation in my skin as well. I would definitely recommend you give this serum a try! Retailing at $58 for the standard 1oz bottle, it is a little pricy, but since you’re only using it twice a week it lasts a while. Adding this into your weekly routine is such an easy way to combat pore size, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and texture. When I run out, I will definitely repurchase it.

COLOURPOP - Butter Me Up Pressed Powder Palette I love the shades featured in this palette. The glitters were a little difficult to swatch, some of the matte shades were blotchy. I’m not sure if I got a bad batch but I wouldn’t repurchase this palette.
