Hello all! Thanks for stopping by; I hope that you find some inspiration for new products on this page. I am always trying new things so keep your eyes peeled for my newest find either drugstore, department store, or luxury products. I cannot wait to share my thoughts with you!
A bit more about me:
I live in North Carolina with my husband and 2 cats (Jayda & Roselyn) and I work in Human Resources in Jacksonville, NC. I am also a student at Johnson & Wales University - Online. I am pretty busy usually, but on my time off I enjoy reading, being active, and taking adventures! I am looking forward to immersing myself into the Influenster community, learning more about new products, and more about you!
I actually don't use this scent. I use the Pineapple Vanilla scent, and it is one of the best lotions I have ever used. It is gentle on my skin and it leaves me moisturized for a long period of time. I usually use this after I tan, and it make sure that my skin has some moisture in it from the harsh rays. Will be repurchasing!
I'm in my 6th month of receiving Ipsy, and I don't think that I will ever stop. They always send me things that are tailored to my personality. Even though they are only sample sizes, they usually last me FOREVER. I am going to keep buying Ipsy subscriptions!
I love SuperGoop. I use their sunscreens and their makeup setting spray with SPF. It really protects my skin from the sun, and is super effective. I bought my first sample size at Sephora, but afterwards I was hooked and purchased a full size on Amazon.
Kix is one of my favorite cereals. It is one of those that is on the cusp of sugary but is also somewhat healthy. I cannot get enough of them. They are sweet and delicious and loved by kids and adults alike. I repurchase these regularly as they are a staple in my childhood household and my current one.
I've been using this Arm & Hammer toothpaste for about 3 years now. I use it twice daily and honestly, I can tell the difference. It smells so minty fresh all day long and it has helped my teeth tremendously. They are visibly whiter and I feel more confident in my smile!
I have been using Estée Lauder Double Wear for about 1.5 years now, so I have had my share of experience with it, and let me tell you that this is what I am reaching for basically everyday.
This foundation is the most blendable, coverable, and wearable foundation I have ever worn. It matches my skin perfectly and lasts forever! Sometimes I even have trouble trying to get it off at the end of the day. It covers all of my imperfections and makes my skin look flawless. It combats my oily skin too. I do not know what I would do without this foundation and its companions (double wear concealer and pressed powder). I use all three for a flawless face for hours and hours.
There is a reason this foundation has been around for so long.
To be honest, I really do not understand the hype of the Micellar cleansing water, but I decided to give it a go.
I have to say, I HATE using it with my makeup on. It takes forever to get all of the makeup off of my face if it even can. I usually have to go back in with a towelette to get the rest of it off, and I really don't even wear that much makeup.
That being said, I would not recommend it for the person hoping that this is going to solve all of their makeup remover problems. However, I would recommend it for somebody like me who is tired of waking up in the morning with crazy oily skin and just wants it off before applying their makeup.
If you're like me and have this problem, keep reading.
No matter what I do the night before I can never seem to stop the oil from spreading itself all over my face in the morning. So, here is what I do: wake up and put this micellar water on a cotton pad and go to town on my face! My pores love me for it honestly. Then I just rinse off and apply my makeup. It has worked wonders for my face getting a fresh start in the morning. I will buy this product again for that reason alone.
At first I really loved this foundation. It had great coverage, the ingredients sounded like they were really going to help me, and it was supposed to help control the oil on my face.
I should start by saying that I have combination skin. Otherwise known as dry, oily, and acne prone all at once. This foundation did nothing really for my acne nor my oily skin. I would set this stuff for hours and still have oil running down my face. I changed between primers and setting powders and sprays just to make this work, but to no avail.
I really wanted to enjoy this foundation, but I think that the worst thing that it does is oxidize! I look like the spawn of Jersey Shore Snooki and Donald Trump by lunch time. Not to mention the fact that it is super transferable and looks patchy by the end of the work day. I could not blend it out very easily as it dried so quickly on my face.
I love this brand, but I cannot get past these problems and will probably not repurchase.
Okay, I wasn't really a believer in the Batiste brand or dry shampoo at all for that matter. I thought that I needed to wash my hair EVERYDAY in order to keep it shiny and voluminous. Well, I was wrong! Since using Batiste I can skip showers that eventually damage my hair due to the heat and harmful products. It leaves absolutely no residue in my hair and I feel great! I use the Tropical scent and even my husband loves it! I cannot express enough how much this has helped me. Oh, and by the way, if you use it when your hair is wet it helps retain the moisture. ;)
