I am 27 years old.
I am single and live a busy lifestyle. I am fortunate to live in a year round sunny place called San Diego.
I enjoy the outdoors. I am active; I enjoy working out and playing soccer (my biggest stress reliever!). I LOVE eating. I try to be "health conscious" but I love eating new types of food. My favortive is Thai.
I work in law enforcement. Due to nature of my job, I have an odd work and sleep schedule. Monday-Friday, you will find me a in a pair of 5-11 pants with tactical boots on. I enjoy the weekends because I can be a "girly-girl" which means I dress up and wear makeup. Did I mention I LOVE makeup?!!
I am a skincare and makeup junkie. My coworkers/friends think I'm crazy because how many beauty/makeup products I own, but I am their go-to girl for any beauty advice.
I am very impressed with this drug store purchase.
I have been using the Nivea lotion every morning for approximately 3 weeks. It's been VERY hot in Cali and because I have dry skin I still need to moisturize. Problem? I can't use a thick body lotion (even though they work best with my skin type). I purchased this lotion on a whim while at Target.
It is my new staple item! It's lightweight, but moisturizing. Nice light scent. I'm still waiting on its "firming" properties to show. Best part: PRICE. I will definitely be repurchasing this item!!!
Jojoba Oil is an amazing product to add to your beauty regime, as it is the closest oil that mimics the natural oil that is produced by your face.
Skip buying expensive cleansing oils and use Jojoba or Grape Seed oil to remove your makeup. Trying adding it to your moisturizer at night (or if you suffer from dry skin as myself, you might be able to get away with using it during the day).
Other uses: cuticle oil, shaving creme alternative, hair treatment, body oil, and hair shine alternative. If I have thick body lotions and I want to "dilute" it, I will add oil to it.
I am a total skincare junkie. I spend A LOT of money on skincare/beauty/makeup items.
I absolutely love the Lush Mask because how simple, pure, and organic their items are. This specific mask soothes your skin. I usually leave the mask on for approximately 15 minutes. When I am ready to wash it off, I use it as a scrub.
My only complaint is the shelf life of the product. I wish it last longer. However, this does t bother or prevent me from repurchasing the product. The shelf life actually forces me to remember about pampering myself and doing weekly masks.
I recently purchased the Softsoap Orchid & Mint Hand Soap at Target due to running out of my usual hand soaps from Bath & Body Works. Not much to say other than, it smells great, doesn't dry your skin, and gets the job done. Plus, I think the packaging makes it look fancy (especially bc it cost no more than 2 dollars).
If you are looking for a simple and organic, yet effective bar soap, I recommend this. The Kiss My Face line has yet to disappoint me with any of their products, including this one. I found using the olive oil bar soap helped soothe my dry skin as it replenished my skin with moister. Even though the bar soap contains oil, I never felt a "oily" film left behind. Because of its gentle properties, I was also able to use this on my face.
I make it a point to pamper myself and take care of my skin. The Origins Clear Improvement Mask is a must in my routine. The mask helps with my stubborn (monthly) breakouts. I have dry skin, so I cannot use masks that overly strip my skin of its natural oils, as it will only cause more dryness. This mask cleans my pores without leaving my skin feeling dry.
