First Aid Beauty Moisturizer: the winter winner!
Winter is approaching! That means dry and cold air will be hitting your skin hard every time you go out which as we all know will unfortunately translate into skin redness, dryness and itchiness. This is why having a heavy soothing moisturizer with the RIGHT ingredients becomes an essential. I present you the love of my life... the Fist aid Beauty Moisturizer.FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer What makes it different? This moisturizer does contain all the classic ingredients every moisturizer needs aka glycerins, humectants and fatty alcohols yet it takes it a step forward by adding 4 hero ingredients: ceramides, green tea and fever few extract and squalene. Ceramides are lipids that form the skin barrier and help retain moisture. Without the proper amount of ceramides the skin becomes red irritated and extremely dry! It’s beneficial therefore to use skincare products with ceramides such as this one... especially in the winter. Green tea and fever few extract are famous for their anti inflammatory purposes which will help reduce irritation, redness and swelling again great to help tackle those winter air side effects. Lastly squalene not only has the same anti inflammatory properties as the two ingredients stated above but also has antioxidant benefits! Therefore it will be able to protect your skin from pollution and environmental stressors through the day. Making this a great moisturizer both for the day and for the night time. What was my experience? I’ve been using this moisturizer every morning for the past 6 weeks, keep in mind I have oily acne prone skin (so I tend to experience a lot of redness caused by the acne) and I have surface dryness due to all the active treatments I use including tretinoin! This means i need a moisturizer that’s quite thick, has soothing properties but doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin or breaks me out. This moisturizer is exactly that. Over the course of the first week of using this moisturizer I could already visibly see improvements in my skin! What’s the verdict? The first aid beauty moisturizer has quickly crawled its way up to my top three of all time favorite hydrators. I think everyone no matter their skin type or skin concerns will definitely benefit from this! If you are looking to reduce your redness, protect and moisturize your skin and keep your glow through the winter this is for you!
Full Face Using Products from Nov Boxy Premium✨
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I finally received and unboxed my November BoxyCharm premium. For those unfamiliar with Boxycharm, it is a subscription service that gives you 5 full size make up products monthly. The base box comes with 5 items for 25 a month. If you want premium, it is 35. You get 2-3 more items than the base box. I used the star ⭐️ of the show (or rather star of the box) which is Illamasqua artistry palette. This retails for $47 USD. This palette performs well. The mattes were not patchy and the shimmers were impactful. There’s quite a fall out so I recommend doing your eye first before complexion. Then I used DoC single block eyeshadow in the shade Night Sky. This is perfect for a cool toned Smokey eye look. I used this for a pop of blue on my lower lash. #Dose of Colors - Block Party[products]# The realher lip liners come in a duo. I love the packaging because it doesn’t require sharpening. The formula was so pigmented and creamy. I was pretty impressed to be honest. I received a pencil eyeliner from the same brand on my last box and I didn’t like it at all. The Too Faced canary diamond highlighter, Lilly Lashes triple x mascara and Alamar’s gloss are from the pop up. I got them 80% off retail price! I wasn’t a fan of the mascara at first, but after applying it with a lash primer, it was amazing. It lengthened, darkened, and gave me volume. The highlighter was okay. It’s pretty but it’s quite chunky. I’m more of a subtle, glow-from-within type of highlighter. If you’re a fan of blinding highlighters, this is for you. I am a huge fan of the packaging. The lip gloss is ok. I wouldn’t pay full price for it however. Too Faced - Diamond Light Highlighter Lilly LASHES - Triple X Mascara HOURGLASS - Arch Brow Micro Sculpting Pencil aLamar COSMETICS - Desnudeas Lip Gloss Coqueta So far I am pretty satisfied with my box this month. If you are subscribed, what is your favorite product from your box? Xoxo, Francesca 💋

My Ulta Black Friday haul ✨
So upon seeing the ad for Ulta’s Black Friday I told myself I wasn’t going to purchase anything... three separate purchases later I found myself with a completely pink haul (which is completely out of character for me 😂) The first thing I picked up on Black Friday was the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit which I have used a few times since then. I’m absolutely blown away how stunning this is on the cheeks. I feel like ABH is the queen of highlighters that look subtle but still give you that bam out of this world glow from within. Later on in the night I decided I needed the COLOURPOP - Lux Lip Oilin the shade Truth Bomb and the #Colourpop - Amourex Glitterly Obsessed Mini Duo[products]#. I have two glitter gels by Colourpop and I absolutely love them despite not using them often. The mini pots are super cute and I don’t feel wasteful if I don’t use them. Then, on Saturday I purchased the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Haute Holiday Lip Gloss Setbecause it was on sale and I’ve been obsessed with the pale nude colors since this set came out. I also impulse bought the #It Cosmetics - Rose Gold Eye Brush Set[products]#as it was also on sale (I think I paid around $20 for it) and I needed the liner brush in it for my Melt Cosmetics gel eyeliners. This set comes with four brushes which includes my absolute favorite blending brush, the number 105. It Cosmetics has the SOFTEST brushes I’ve ever used. The quality by far surpasses anything I own. It also comes with a really cute rose gold container for it. I’m hoping to have reviews up for these eventually but here is my current Ulta haul 💗 I also plan on posting my Sephora Black Friday haul and my Ulta Cyber Monday haul once I get that. What did you guys pick up for for Black Friday?
ABH Dipbrow Dupe!
For the longest time I’ve always stuck with my Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade!! And while the product itself is amazing, I randomly picked out this pomade by elf out of curiosity and fell in love!!! This is seriously a game changer if you use pomade for your everyday brows and want to save some extra cash!! The e.l.f. - Lock on Liner and Brow Cream is for One, easy to use Secondly dries down so nice, (I don’t worry if I accidentally wiped off a piece of my brow Lol). And best of all it’s literally $2!! I use the shade “Medium Brown” and find this blends really nice with black hair! Unfortunately my only con is that the product doesn’t have that many shades especially compared to Anastasia. I provided a photo of how I normally do my brows with this product for anyone wondering! Overall this is a great affordable pomade alternative! What products do you use for your brows?
