    Beauty Products I Repurchase

    The true test of a beauty product? Do you repurchase. Is the product that good that you just can’t live without it? Does it do something that the other products you have don’t do? Or does it just do the job better? Is it a better price, or does a little go a long ways? There are the questions I think of when repurchasing beauty products. The products that I’m sharing today answer one or some of these questions in one way or another. Bodycare This bath “potion” (really a oil) by MOA is great. It is pepperminty and has a hefty amount of fennel in it. When my muscles…

    Body care and Hydration: Body Oils

    I won’t lie, when it comes to skin hydration I’m usually a lotion person. It’s easier to work into the skin, and it absorbs better (imo).

    My Current Morning Skincare Routine

    If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I’m a skincare junkie. I love trying new products, seeing what works for my skin, and what doesn’t. My current morning skincare routine is a mixture of tried and true anti-acne and hydration products. Cleanse Around Christmastime my skin had a bit of a freak-out. Probably all the rich food. Since then I’ve been using the It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser, the Ole Henriksen Balance Force Oil Control Toner, and Radha tea tree oil as a part of my morning skincare routine. These products combined have helped my skin settle down. The It Cosmetics cleanser gives more a…
