Birchbox November Hydration Box
DERMA•E - Hydrating Eye Cream •this claimed to hydrate, reduce wrinkles, as well as restoring firmness. I was skeptical at first, since this was my first time trying this brand. Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream • Ceramides are well known for time-released hydration effects. Basically, it's giving you hydration around the clock. This hydration cream feels thick and creamy but once applied on the face, it's super-fast absorbing and feels lightweight. My skin never felt so hydrated in my life. Typically, I overproduce oil when my skin is dehydrated. This cream has helped with my oil control as well by restoring the hydration and moisture on my face! Super effective! I will be buying the full-size once I ran out of my trial size. philosophy - Hope In A Jar • can't don't wrong with hyaluronic acid to give you hydration. Philosophy is well known for this hydrating cream. It's super lightweight and glides on the face giving you immediate hydration. H2O+ - Milk Serum • This serum has been game changer for me. The first time trying h2o+ products, and I was immediately sold with this product! It's a milky-liquidy texture that glides on the face, lightweight, and fast absorbing. This left my face very hydrated and plump. I applied this after using the Georgette Klinger coconut cleansing milk. This box was everything! Since the weather got colder, my skin started to dry up. This hydration set box, helped restore moisture and hydration back to my skin! I'm so happy I chose this curated sample set because I found my winter holy-grails!

Nighttime Routine - a little extra
Below is my night time routine. I work at a massage/esthetician clinic so I was able to get the higher priced items on majooorrr discount. There’s no way I would have purchased otherwise. Once I use up the majority of these items I will be switching back to more cost effective and just as great products. POND'S - Cold Cream Cleanser | Really, really good cold cream. I use this to break down my make up as a first cleanse. Works really well and really gentle on the eyes. Gave 4 stars because it leaves a slight film in my eyes, but a couple minutes and that’s not an issue. OBAGI - Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser | Great gentle cleanser. After using my skin feels squeaky clean and hydrated but not tight or too stripping in the slightest. Quite overpriced, but really good. Will use up. Won’t repurchase. PCA skin - Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum | Another amazing product that is very overpriced and I know for a fact that I can get something just as good with out the hefty price tag, I mean it’s just a hyaluronic acid for goodness sake. Will use up. Won’t repurchase. PCA skin - HydraLuxe Intensive Hydration Face Cream | Pretty good face cream, has a lot of amazing ingredients. Does amazing things for my skin, very hydrating and makes my skin feel like a baby’s bottom. Very very hefty price tag on this bad boy. Never got to buying the full-size. Ended up with two minis of it and I use it sparingly. Will absolutely use up. Won’t repurchase. DERMA•E - Hydrating Eye Cream | Great hydrating eye cream. I haven’t noticed that it does anything too special, but it makes it so that my under eyes don’t look crusty or nasty under concealer the next day. Finish up with LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask or Treat Beauty Jumbo Lip Balm. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment
Is it just be or does anyone else have a 3 step eye routine? First, I use this JUICE BEAUTY - STEM CELLULAR Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment since it’s more of a serum consistency, light weight and absorbed easily to the skin. Then I go in with my DERMA•E - Hydrating Eye Cream for the hydration. It’s like a moisturizer for my under eyes. Then lastly, I top it off with the GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask to lock in all the hydration and anti-aging effects as well as brighten with the help of retinol. My under eyes have never felt more taken cared for in my entire life! These steps all together has improved the look of dark circles, de-puffing, increased firmness, and hydrated and nourished my under eye area. Let’s dive into what makes this product awesome! JUICE BEAUTY - STEM CELLULAR Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment It claims to hydrate, reduce the look of dark circles, and give nourishment to the under eye area. It contains jojoba oil, shea butter, evening primrose, vitamin B, C, & E (from fruit extracts) • Jojoba oil and Shea butter helps to hydrate the under eye area. •Evening primrose rich in fatty acids that help improve and reduce the appearance of dark circles. • The apple, grape, lemon extracts give off Vitamin B,C, and E. They all work together to reduce fine lines/wrinkles, hydrate, firm, and brighten the under eyes. I’m really loving how handy this product is. It comes it an applicator making it more hygienic for me instead of using my fingers. For me, this product works. I’ve been using it for couple weeks now. My under eye area are hydrated, helped with my dark circles, and prevented anymore fine lines or wrinkles around my eyes. I’m so happy I received this product in my ipsy glam bag ultimate!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
