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!

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?

JustNeem + giveaway

img_0835Hi there puppets! I’ve missed you all and hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween. If you want to check out my families Halloween, head over to my Instagram (I posted tons of photos!).

I can’t believe it is already November! Christmas is around the corner, and the cold weather has already begun. While I hate the cold weather, I love breaking out my hoodies and boots.

Luckily, the neighborhood I took my little one around for Halloween, was also giving out hot chocolate! How sweet is that. Just goes to show that in the midst of a crazy world, some people care.

So today, in order to finally give my other areas on my page some content, I am going to talk to guys about some great skincare products I got to try out! img_0859

I would like to take a moment to thank JustNeem for sending me these products. I received them for the sole purpose of talking about how I really feel about them. So let’s get to it :p

First, all products are from raw and natural ingredients. I know natural ingredients are important to some of you guys, so if you need a new skincare line to check out, here you go!

Now out of the products I received, the clay mask is my absolute favourite. It cleans, exfoliates, and hydrates all at once. A lot of masks that exfoliate tend to dry me out as well, so the fact that this hydrates too, is amazing. I’ve been using it about twice a week for two weeks now, and in that little time my face looks so much clearer and smoother.

img_0861The cuticle oil pen is super convenient. I literally keep it stashed in my purse. It’s been great for my cuticles and I haven’t had any hangnail type of things going on. I don’t keep my nails done, because I am so busy with my hands that it always chips too easily or gets in the way. So at least my cuticles are taken care of! If you need some cuticle help that is easy and convenient, give it a try.

 

IMG_0860.PNGNow, I will admit that the Pumpkin Spice body butter is not one of my favourite things. Mainly because of the smell. I have never been a fan of the Pumpkin Spice smell. BUT I know a lot of you guys love that kind of thing, so this may be for you. The smell aside, this lotion moisturizes like nothing before. I am a big fan of Bath and Body Work’s lotions and don’t stray from them, but this lotion actually moisturizes better and it seems to stay moisturized longer.

If any of you guys are interested in any of this, or anything else you may have seen on their site I have a 25% off code for you guys! It is off your entire order and the code it TRYNEEM.

Also their social media handle for Twitter and Instagram are @justneem

My goal is to post again for you guys before the end of the week, so I will see you soon!

As always don’t forget to follow me on social media for other products and giveaways. ALSO we are SO close to our goal for the next giveaway! So share this post, like it, comment, and follow!
