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!

December Favourites

Hello my beautiful little flowers! 😀

Quick reminder, if you are interested in entering the giveaway, please do so before time is up! Also, I wanted to apologize for not giving you much content these past few weeks, but I have been out of state for vacation. I thought I would stick to what I said, and give you a IMG_2149.JPGDecember Favourites!

All my faves from last month are all skincare related, so here we go:

First off, is the OFRA Drying Lotion. This is for those of you who are like me and get the randomest break outs, for absolutely no reason. Just shake it up and use it as a spot treatment. I usually leave it on overnight and wash my face in the morning. This stuff is seriously a miracle in a bottle. It dries the break out, which can, depending on the size of the break out, clear it up almost completely, or reduce it in size a good bit.  It has been a life saver, especially during my special time of the month, when my body completely hates me *insert eye roll here*.img_2148

Also, something I have been using is the Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk. I am actually kind of annoyed with myself, because I forgot to bring this on my trip!

It works for all skin types and it seriously does SO much. It detoxifies, cleanses, removes make up, and moisturizes!

Not to mention this stuff smells like heaven. I actually really love S&G and have been meaning to make a post with my fav S&G things, so maybe I will do that when I get back home!

Next are some more Nip + img_2147Fab items! I believe I had a N+P product in my November Favs, so you may be familiar with the brand. One is the Kale Fix moisturizer and the other is the Kale Fix make up removing pads. The moisturizer is great and I think it would be especially great for dryer skin. You can notice a difference with your face as soon as it hits your skin. It also softens your face, which makes it feel SO smooth. The make up removing pads have the same affect. If you have dry skin, I honestly recommend you try this out.

What are some of your favourite products that you have been trying out?

November Favourites

Hello mah babies!

So today I thought I would let you know what products were my absolute favourites from last month! I also have been thinking about making this a permanent thing, and will try to post monthly about my overall favourites for said month.dscn0073

Now, in November I did quite a bit of shopping BUT there were 3 things that seriously amazed me. I think it says a lot about these items that out of everything only 3 stuck out.

First is the Nip +Fab Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix. I have actually been on a Nip + Fab spree and am really loving some of their things. This actually reminds me of Porefessional from Benefit. But way cheaper. It blurs your pores to make them less noticeable and it makes your skin super smooth. I have been using it as a primer but also have been using it on days without make up. A definite 8/10 on a primer scale.

The Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation is my next thing. I have never fallen in love with a foundation so fast. Before this one I tried the Estee Lauder Double Wear and wasn’t a big dscn0150fan. Which feels weird to say because everyone else loves it but it just wasn’t for me. BUT this stuff has been so great. It is full coverage, but doesn’t feel thick after application. It stays beautiful all day, even without setting spray. I seriously have nothing bad to say about this foundation. I have been through ALOT of foundations and I have never found one that I really felt was perfect for me until now.

Okay let’s talk plumpers. I love plumpers BUT I hate them, you know? Even with my hate for them, I picked up Too Faced’s Lip Injection Extreme and OH MY GOD. This is probably the first plumper that has actually plumped. Most plumpers give me that tingly feeling but my lips never look different. This stuff actually did what it said it would. On top of that, it doesn’t feel all sticky and tacky like a lot of plumpers. Too Faced has definitely changed how I feel about plumpers and I am glad I actually gave it a try.

Was there anything you have recently tried that really just over went your expectations?

Also, before I bow out on this post, we hit our 1,000 marker! This means keep your eyes out for an upcoming post about how to enter the giveaway and also information on the giveaway item!

Talk to you guys soon!  xx

 

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?

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!
