A Serum For Your Scalp
DR. BARBARA STURMScalp Serum
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 First impression is that this serum is awesome just like Dr. Barbara Sturm’s face serums. I’ve tried a lot of scalp products in the past and many times feel they are too sticky. This absorbed quite fast and didn’t leave a weird feeling after. Just a hydrated scalp! The one thing with scalp serums that is tricky is easily and evenly distributing it throughout the scalp, but that will come with any serum - not just this one.A Candle That Doubles as Body Oil
This cream is amazing! I love it soooo much and it really works! This cream is what dreams are made of literally! If like me you're having trouble sleeping, look no further! The cream smells like you're laying in a sun -drenched field of lavender in the south of France. The consistency is THICK and so SILKY, it melts straight into the skin. I bought this on Amazon, the price reflects the fact you get what you pay for! Full of magic magnesium and pure organic ingredients-a perfect night's sleep guaranteed every night. Out for the count in no time! Neom Real Luxury Body Scrub 💜 Luxury in a jar! Smells heavenly and feels divine. The body scrub of dreams! Spring is coming and body prep needs to happen, this product is perfect to wake up your skin. Amazing de-stressing ingredients, made with Lavender, Jasmine and Brazillian Rosewood the scrub is sugar-based and whipped up with Jojoba and sunflower oil. My seriously skin didn't know what had hit it! I usually save for this one but at $20 reduced from $40 it's a steal! Neom Real Luxury Intensive Skin Treatment Candle 💝 This treatment candle is so sexy! Luxury with a caal L, love your skin. What's different about this product is that it lights like a candle and acts as a body oil. Light it, drizzle it then massage it on your skin and watch the temperature in the room rise! Made with all- natural ingredients, you can feel the love and goodness in this product. As an added bonus the gorgeous china pot with a pouring spout trimmed in gold is super stylish and refillable. The best product for every woman who wants to feel good and look amazing! I always ask for this as a gift, if I feel I need a glamor boost💋This Rose "Stem Cell" Serum
THE YOPPA GARDENPURE BLOOD EX
amazing essence by Marina from Goryeo Cosmetics. I was super excited about this because I had been spying it on their page and thought it looked so because of the packaging. You all know I'm a sucker for great packaging so I was sold already in wanting to try this but after reading up on what it does I was even more excited to try it. . ♥️ Stem Cell Pure Blood EX. -The Yoppa Garden Stem Cell Pure Blood EX is called the water of life. A drop of red blood that can solve your skins problems. . -Acting directly on the human dermal cells. . -High concentration of Damascus Rose Essence and Hyaluronic acid are the main ingredients of this essence. They activate skin, restoring skin , stimulate skin grow factor, in skin's ability to regenerate and store water. . I totally think the packaging is so along with the name of the essence and if you seen on my story the other day it is actually a sparkly essence when you have a flash light on it.. I use a lot of active ingredients as most of you know so having a essence that helps the skins is exactly what I need to keep my skin healthy. Enjoy your day guys 😘😘An Affordable Drugstore Hack To Pimple Patches
CVS pharmacyAdvanced Healing Hydrocolloid Bandages
I have definitely spent the $30 on in a time of desperation. Then one day I saw these little at CVS! They were about $5 for the exact same product just in a different shape then the ! With hydrocolloid as the main ingredient these help to extract any excess fluids ( or any leftover gunk) from your s. What they help me the most with is not touching my face! I have definitely noticed a difference in how quickly my s heal after using these . You can use them as is or cut them in half to get more bang for your already-cheaper buck. ✌️This CBD 2-in-1 Mask & Scrub
I really enjoy Freeman Beauty skincare because not only are they all super affordable - they have such a diverse variety of products for all skin types!!! Their newest CBD line is so amazing and versatile. 💙 The “Destress” Jelly Mask/Cleanser is super gentle on the skin and doesn’t dry it out at all. It works well for sensitive skin and I love the fact that it’s a 2 in 1 product. 💜 The “Balance” Jelly Mask/ Scrub works best for non sensitive style skin. The scrubbers are super gritty and rough on the skin. I don’t see how this one is a 2 in 1 product because the scrubbers have no purpose when using it JUST as a face maskA Cica Hand Sheet Mask That Moisturizes and Protects
AveenoRepairing Cica Hand Mask
Washing your hands frequently when you have any kind of skin condition is a NIGHTMARE. My hands have been so and chapped and I grabbed this hand mask at Target on a lark and OH MY GOODNESS. My hands feel so soft and it's ed the skin damage on my knuckles! I want to go back and buy ten more. It's that good.An Antiseptic Cream To Keep Ingrown Hairs and Acne at Bay
Bye bye ingrowns, hello soft clear and moisturized skin!!!! This product is a result of one of my deep amazon spirals 💆🏽♀️ (happens often) and it is an antiseptic cream and keeps your skin super duper clean. How to use: after waxing or any hair removal put a dab of this cream, enjoy the tingles and banish any ingrown hairs, , or just weird skin problems that would arise. I use on bikini area, eyebrows, upper lip, but you can truly use it anywhere on your body

Turning myself into Merengue from ACNH 🍓
Hi, my name’s Francine and I’m addicted to Animal Crossing!!! 🐶🐷🐱🐰🦊💗 If you guys have been following along you’ve probably seen my other ACNH inspired lewks. Someone suggested I did Merengue next, and honestly she was already on my list! Merengue is a normal rhino villager and her name comes from “meringue”, a type of dessert made with egg whites and sugar. My husband has her on his island and she’s the cutest!! 🍰 I also got inspo from @neoini on IG! They did this look a while ago, and I’m just beyond obsessed. Here’s what I used for this look: 🍓 e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer 🍰DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer 🍓essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder 🍰essence - Satin Touch Blush 🍓COLOURPOP - Strawberry shake shadow palette 🍰CALEY COSMETICS - Beach Babe Natural Lips 🍓Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss 🍰Freck BEAUTY - THE ORIGINAL FRECKLE 🍓OFRA - Limited Edition Rodeo Drive Highlighter Ornament 🍰 ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel How did I do it: • First I started by prepping my skin, so I used my favorite primer atm. The elf poreless putty primer gives me a smooth, flawless base every time. • Next I spot concealed with the Dior forever skin correct concealer, I wear shade 1W. • I like to keep my brows soft when I’m doing villager inspired makeup lol, so I only went in with the dipbrow gel, which I don’t love but I can’t find my elf wow brow 😔 • Now for the eyes I used one of my favorite palettes from CP and did a soft, shimmery pink eye bc the lil strawberry nose is the focal point here! • The nose was so hard guys, I used a white concealer and a green eyeliner from a now discontinued beauty brand and just carefully tried to draw a strawberry. Any white creamy shadow or concealer will work and any green shadow or liner is ok! I used the shade Daiquiri from the Strawberry Shake palette for the rest. Ta-da! • To set my makeup I used the essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder I purchased this powder when I did my Flora makeup and needed a white fixing powder. I went with Essence because honestly I rarely ever use mattifying powders for my regular makeup routine, and Essence is inexpensive and they’re powders are just top tier. This powder is supposed to be “invisible” so I just build up until I can no more and it works great! Its surprisingly lightweight even when I apply like 10 layers to get maximum opacity. Also the price is hard to beat! $3.99 for 8 grams 🙌 • I used the Satin Touch Blush in Coral love. • For the freckles I used the Freck BEAUTY - THE ORIGINAL FRECKLE the liquid-y formula and small brush makes it easy to draw fake freckles, but it’s a little warm for my taste and way too small. Def not a need.
I tried celebrity 156$ mask!!!😍✨ Is it worth it?
I tried this expensive mask from @111skin 😍✨ and I have thoughts about it! 111SKIN - Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask ✨What is it: The ultimate pre-event mask; this hydrogel formula infuses the skin with radiance boosting ingredients for a glowing complexion. It's not conventional paper sheet mask, it's actually made of hydrogel and that's what makes it special!!! Originally created as limited-edition item, this mask has grown into a global cult product and a staple in the 111SKIN collection. Containing 24k Gold and Damask Rose, this mask works both to illuminate and calm the skin for a party-ready glow. Used by supermodels, celebrities and influencers ✨ Benefts: ROSE: A botanical extract high in antioxidants which helps to protect the skin against external aggressors. Rose also soothes irritated skin and reinforces the skin’s moisture barrier to prevent dehydration GOLD EXTRACT: A mineral extract that brightens, evens skin tone, and improves circulation. ARGIRELINE: A hexapeptide and substrate of Botulinum Extract that inhibits muscle contraction to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. ✨My experience and thoughts: -Does it really work? YES!! It truly works! I used it before going to vacay with my husband and it kept my skin brighter, plumper and hydrated throughout the vacay! Initially when I used the mask, the night before my flight it didn't feel like it's any extraordinary mask. It definitely hydrated my skin and made it look plumper instantly but all the claims took about a day to really show on my skin. When I put it on, it started to tingle a bit in my mouth area but not the burning sensation. It was sort of plumping my skin. I could feed it around my lips and chin. When I removed the mask, my skin was way more plumper than before. I guess that's how celebrities and influencers love it as it truly preps your skin for the big event. But, I would definitely say it works amazing for the next few days. My skin was brighter and looked well-rested for couple of days after I used this!! -Is it really worth 156$? Well, I would say you get 5 sheet masks for that price. One package contains 5 so it's totally worth the price. Also, a huge DEAL!!!! 😍❤️☑️ On Amazon the pack of 5 masks is available for only 32$. And yes, it's Authentic!! You can get single sheet masks on Amazon for lesser price, 20$. 😍✨ I think it's such a great deal. If you have any big event or occasion coming up, GET THIS MASK! You may not feel anything great going on but it surely will make your skin look amazing under makeup!! What do you think of this mask?? Would you try it?? 🤩
Cosrx cotton rounds vs. Shiseido facial cotton🤍
☁️I ditched drugstore cotton pads a long time ago, I could never consistently find ones that didn’t flake & shred fibers onto my face. I have sensitive eyes & I absolutely hate getting anything stuck in there, I’m sure we all do. I don’t wear makeup much anymore, but having cotton pads that don’t shed or fall apart is so crucial for removing eye makeup! I mostly use cotton pads for my toning step. A good cotton pad will be absorbent, but not too much to be able to dispense your products across your face. 💦Pro Tip: If your cotton pads still look dirty or has traces of makeup after toning, this means your cleansing routine isn’t cutting it. Toning is not meant to further clean your skin after cleansing. Rather, toner meant to help rebalance skin & prepare it for your following hydration/moisture routine. 🚰 Toner is an important for me because I’m not super happy with my tap water quality. If I wouldn’t drink, I’m not thrilled about washing my face with it, but I’m not bougie enough to wash with Évian®😭 SHISEIDO - Facial Cotton $12/165 pads Description from Shiseido: This exclusive Facial Cotton is 100% natural and uniquely manufactured for a consistent soft, smooth texture. Allows for maximum absorption and assists in the application of Shiseido softeners. 165 sheets per pack. My review: I’ve been using these & loving them for years. It seemed like such a splurge to me when I first switched, but such an upgrade, I never looked back. They’re about 7 cents each, so it’s honestly not that bad if you’re sick of buying random cotton pads at Target/Walmart. (I checked prices a few mainstream brands like Equate & Q-Tips, which range from about 2-5 cents per) These are super soft! It doesn’t soak up too much product even though they’re plush, it gives it right back to, making toner an effective & enjoyable experience. I love they have no type of seam or edge, so there’s nothing but soft, fluffy texture☁️ COSRX - Pure 100% Cotton Rounds $12/80 pads Description from Cosrx: Soft, round cotton pad made of wavy patterned 100% cotton to mildly wipe skin without irritation. My review: Every once in a while I forget to add my usual Shiseido facial cotton to a Sephora order, so I decided to try something new in a Soko Glam order. These are double sided, one side is textured, one smooth. Technically these are twice as expensive per pad as Shiseido. Some of you may like the textured side for removing makeup or applying certain products, but I personally didn’t find it as an added plus. It’s not rough, but the smooth side isn’t as soft as Shiseido. They perform fine, but overall I like the softer, plush texture of Shiseido better. Cosrx has little seam edges I don’t care for. Results: Both held up equally well in all my tests. Swipe through the photos. I tried to see how much roughing up they could take & if they would flake or fall apart-they didn’t. Cosrx pads are slightly stronger, but both broke eventually💧
My longtime obsession with long nails //PICS!🔪
Yup, I’m that girl clickin & clackin on her phone! Sorrrry💁🏻♀️ 💅🏽💅🏿💅🏼💅🏾💅🏻 I’ve been obsessed with crazy long nails since i was a little kid. I got my first set of acrylics probably sophomore year of high school. I was pretty tomboy in high school even though I wore a lot of makeup, they were pretty annoying at first & the dance companies I was in banned fake nails for shows & even practice. I would get sets occasionally in college, but went to art school & they definitely get in the way with certain processes. ♿️ I got severely injured in 2014, when I was 26, & the cuticle biting habit I’ve always had was sooo bad because I literally had nothing to do all day. I was working as a server in California at the time, so I was definitely not allowed to have fake nails or nail polish of any kind. I ended up returning to acrylics full time after I got injured & I could finally stop biting my cuticles! The nails just look so pretty, I felt less eager to mess with them & the nails are thicker than a natural nail so you can’t pick at your skin (or pop pimples with this length! Plus!) 💔 A combination of moving away from my favorite nail tech, ( TONY I LOVE YOU & OH HOW MISS YOU SO! ) & obviously quarantine, forced me to abandon my long fake nails for now. The damage: Getting full acrylic sets & fills pretty much non-stop for almost 6 years, my real nails were not cute, thin & brittle. I was so lucky to have a very talented & meticulous technician for the last 2 of those years. I honestly never had any of the nasty issues some people can face with acrylics. What are acrylics? Acrylic nails are created by first applying a plastic nail extension with glue to part of your nail to add length. Then a powder & liquid acrylic monomer are combined into a sort of “blob of dough” & shaped onto your nails with a brush & air dried. Next they will be further shaped & smoothed with manual & electric files. A GOOD tech will take about 2 hours, not less. I always chose gel polish that’s cured with a UV light on top of my acrylics, but you can also just do regular nail polish. I worked up to this length- they make me feel like myself, know what I mean? But I wouldn’t recommend starting off long if you aren’t used to it. Your natural nails grow out & then in 2-3 weeks you can get what’s called a “fill”, where your polish is removed & a small amount of the monomer is applied to the base of your nail bed & blended into what you already have on your nail. Quarantine: Had my last real set in February... I ordered long press-ons a few times, which I really loved, but they’re just not the same strength-wise. I was actually kinda rough on my nails & rarely broke them. At least when press-ons pop off, you can just glue it back on instead of rushing to the salon! I’ve had fun trying ones with gems & charms! In the past I stuck to solid colors & glitter with acrylics due to the cost & sitting time. IMO the best press-ons are from black owned business, Hawt Nailz!
☀️Sience says Tinted Sunscreens do it best☀️
Hello beautiful skin + beauty lovers 😊 I love spfs because they are so important to the health of our skin and our whole body☀️ I was excited to try the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 because it’s a tinted sunscreen. Regular sunscreen blocks UV rays so that’s still awesome, But visible light is not blocked in this capacity. Visible light has been proven to cause damage to skin just like UV rays. non-tinted sunscreens are formulated to be invisible on skin, and therefore cannot block visible light. Tinted sunscreens are awesome because the added color base in the product is beneficial to blocking visible light because the color remains on your skin, creating yet another layer of protection between your beautiful skin and the sun. Here’s how it works, according to Neera Nathan MD and Dieter Manstein MD for Harvard Publising, “Tinted sunscreens combine broad-spectrum mineral UV filters, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, with added pigments — pigmentary titanium dioxides and iron oxides — that create the visible, skin-tone color that can reflect away visible light. The colored base of tinted sunscreens is created by mixing different amounts of black, red, and yellow iron oxides with pigmentary titanium dioxide, resulting in a tinted sunscreen that can be matched to any skin tone.” Boom! That’s how it’s done. Who wouldn’t want that extra protection without white cast?! How does FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 perform? The only issue I have with this is when rubbing it in, it feels grainy and gritty like sand or something. It disappears once all the way rubbed in, but it kind of weirded me out 😛 I was reading a bunch of reviews and some people claimed to feel this as well. I think mine might have been old or something. It is not bothersome enough for me to not want to try it again. I will still use & probably repurchase this. The finish on this product is amazing. I really like it for my combination skin. Once soaked into the skin, this sunscreen became invisible and left a soft sheen/dewiness on my pale skin. It made my skin really soft, too. I would also like to point out there for me the sunscreen didn’t really do much in terms of blurring imperfections on my face. I honestly couldn’t really tell that I had anything on after it was all the way rubbed in, except for a light glow it gave my skin. So if you’re looking for a tinted sunscreen with more coverage I would probably recommend looking at a different product. I also like the ingredients in this, squalane being one of the first few ingredients, working to moisturize and nourish my skin. Do you guys like tinted sunscreen? What kinds do you wear?
