nightly routine

hey babes, happy spring, finally! not sure how much more of this cold weather I can take *insert eye roll here*.img_3847

so, if you’re like me, then your nightly routine probably changes every few months. if it doesn’t then you’re lucky. it seems like after three months of the same routine my face is just like “okay, cool and?” and it becomes unaffected by it.

with that said, I thought I would share my current night routine. first off, make up remover. that is one thing that doesn’t change because I swear by the Neutrogena remover wipes. I really like wipe removers because they feel less oily than the liquid removers. the Neutrogena wipes are my img_3848favourite because other wipes I’ve tried have felt really rough on the eye area and end up making my skin super red. so I will always 10x out of 10 recommend these.

after removing the make up I take a cotton ball and Formula 10.0.06 Totally Clean Pore Cleanser, which is essential an acne/blackhead treatment and removes any oil that the wipes left behind. and I go over my whole face with a Nip+Fab Bee Sting toning pad.

c8640f5f-273f-4058-ae43-4336b590aaabnow this is just my basic every night thing some nights are a bit different because I don’t exfoliate every night because I usually do that in the morning before make up.

after toning, I have been using a 5 minute eye mask from Patchology as well as their FlashMasque. I usually put on the eye mask first, since its the quickest.

before the actual facial mask I go ahead and get my teeth 3d28fcfc-7986-4e27-aaf6-8a984d40c0c2whitening trays together so I can whiten while the mask is on. if you haven’t seen my older posts, I have been using Smile Brilliant (home teeth whitening) for teeth whitening, and I seriously LOVE it. so I put my trays and and plop the mask on and just chill, do some school work, BLOG. lol.

since I will be collabing with Smile Brilliant for another whitening kit giveaway, I will drop a few links for you to check out if your interested in the giveaway; Things to know before whitening & How-to video.img_3849

I usually leave the trays on longer than the masks so after the mask is done I just kind of roam the house taking care of random things before bed. then viola!

Cotton masks w/ bbeautylimited

bblmaskHello my little loves! I just renewed my domain, and something about that just felt exciting! I can’t believe it has been a year since I have started blogging. I’ve gotten to meet and talk to so many new people and try new things.

Speaking of which, lets dive in. So recently I got to try some great masks from bbeautylimited which is ran by Lisa and Madoka who are seriously sweet and lovely.

Let me tell you, these masks are wonderful. First off they are cotton sheet masks, so they are super easy to apply and remove and don’t make a huge mess. Lisa and Madoka were kind enough to send me a Papaya and Jojoba Oil mask. They were both amazing for their own reasons. The Papaya was my favourite in terms of smell, but in terms of how my face felt I found the Jojoba Oil very soothing.

As you all know, I am huge on skincare, and masks like these really pick your skin up. Especially with all this cold weather. I cannot say it enough you guys: exfoliate and moisturize. If not, this cold weather will seriously do your skin in.

So go give these lovely ladies a follow, and check out their products, you won’t regret it.

You can find them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @bbeautylimited as well as their website, linked at the beginning of this post!

What are some of you guys’ favourite sheet masks?

Carli Bybel – yay or nay?

Hello beauties!openface

I hope you all had a good holiday and had fun with your families. Sorry this post was so late. I was out of state for the holiday and didn’t have a chance to update before I left. Now before I jump into this post, I did want to let you all know that we are about 13 followers away from the 1,000 mark! 13! So make sure you tell your friends and share the blog on Twitter/IG/FB. Once we hit that, the giveaway instructions will go up. The giveaway prize is a $120 dollar value, and soon you will know what it is (also there may be upcoming hints on my IG) 😛

eyeshadowNow, for what you came for.

So, this is actually my first BHcosmetics purchase. I have seen/heard mixed reviews so it took me a while to try anything from the brand. So when I was walking around Ulta a few weeks ago, I saw the Carli Bybel palette, and it was getting a lot of hype. I figured for less than $15 it was worth a try. It totally was. I am a highlighter fiend and was looking for new shadows and thought it was a perfect combo.

Seriously, this is the best palette you can get for under $20. Everything is so smooth and buttery, kind of like the ABH palettes. They are also a lot more pigmented than you would think they would be for the price. Also ignore my swatching, I tried doing a straight line and it just did not work out for me, lol. img_1463

The highlighters vary in shades, which is great because there is a highlight for a lot of skin tones, however, because of that and because I am so pale, I can only really use two. BUT I’m not gonna complain too much because it is still such a great palette.

Both the highlighters and eyeshadows blend very well and stay well through out the day. Definitely a 10/10 for me and I totally recommend it.

Does anyone have any favourite BHcosmetics products they love? What else should I try?

Lush for the holidays

img_1042Hello my little honeybees, sorry for the super late post! I’ve just started going back to school for my bachelors so I have been a little busy getting back into that routine. We are super close to our giveaway goal! Once we hit the mark I will post the instructions for entering!

So today, I wanted to share some of the amazing holiday product’s that some sweet people from Lush sent to me. Disclaimer: I am not endorsed or sponsored. Just a few PR goodies I thought I would share with you.

img_1043Let me tell you, their new holiday items are amazing and beautiful. I am always amazed by how cute some of their products are. First on the cute train, the Santasaurus bubblebar. Okay, can we talk about how adorable the name is? I mean, seriously. It smells just like their “Honey I Washed the Kids” scent, and it’s just freaking amazing.

The Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub and tint are wonderful as well. I am a big fan of their lip scrubs and this is by far my favourite. The smell is just seriously amazing. *heart eyes emoji*

If you are in search for a new shower gel, Bubbly is so good. I honestly love to just sniff it. It has a wonderful citrus smell. It actually kind of reminds me of something but I haven’t been able to put my finger on just what. Speaking of shower products, my new favourite thing is the Christingle body conditioner. Even though I feel like I’m rubbing Icy Hot and toothpaste on my body, I love the tingle and the way my skin stays moisturized after. Sleepy hand/body lotion is also great for moisturizing. I am super thankful for these products, especially with the colder weather coming around, moisturizing is important because the cold weather dries me out so badly.

What are some of your favourite holiday Lush’s items?

 

 

Nightly skin routine

So me and Emily (Beauty and Brushes) decided to discuss our nightly skincare routines witimg_1020h you guys! So make sure to check out her page to see what products she likes to use 😛

My routine is pretty simple and quick. So I will list the products in the order I use them.  Some products you may remember from previous posts, and others you may not.

First, I use Radha Beauty’s vitamin C cleanser to remove any dirt and left over make up I may have left on my face.

I follow that with Formula 10.0.6’s One Smooth Operator to exfoliate and remove impurities.

I apply a thin layer of Radha Beauty’s Clear Skin Anti-Acne Treatment because my skin hates me, especially during my img_1021period D:

I usually leave that an hour or two then right before bed I apply Beyond Belief’s lift & firm eye cream and a vitamin c & hyaluronic acid serum combo.

There: Quick, simple, and easy!

What are some of your favourite skin care products?
