If you are looking for a gentle makeup remover I would suggest you consider trying “Remove i Makeup Remover” by Benefit Cosmetics. This makeup remover is so gentle and cleanses makeup away automatically. I like the fresh after feeling this cleanser leaves. It is not irritant and very gentle to the eye area. The way I like to use it is by shaking the bottle and pouring a bit on a cotton pad and swipe away! I learned that it’s a little tough to remove some lipsticks. This is why I recommend to always wash afterwards with a mild cleanser.This product is oil free, removes waterproof makeup, and there is no rising necessary. This product retails at $21, but it is currently on sale for $15 on http://www.benefitcosmetics.com.
I am loving this moisturiser from Kiehl’s “Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream”. I love how it smells like honey! It smells so yummy you want to it lol. This moisturizer is so lightweight and hydrating. This moisturizer is known to smooth the skin surface, smooth fine lines, and strengthen the skin for youthful vitality according to kiehls.com. It is made with korean red ginseng root which is known to accelerate cell renewal. Which is known to help the skin give a vibrant glow.Another ingredient is New Zealand Manuka Honey which is known to strengthen the skin barrier to smooth any fine lines.
I have been using this moisturiser for both day and night and my skin has had improvements. Not only is the moisturiser light weight, but it is very hydrating. A little bit goes a long way to hydrate neck and face evenly. I tend to use half the amount of the size of a dime which is plenty for my skin. I warm up the moisturizer within my fingers and dab on to cheeks, forehead, and chin. I massage in circular motions until I reach my neck. If I am using this during the daytime I follow up with an spf. Since I have oily combination skin this moisturizer is not heavy at all. I feel it really hydrates my skin and leaves it silky smooth.
Ok so this blog is a little different from all specially since I will be talking about pregnancy leggings. Now hold on before you stop reading! I’ve discovered a new fashion basic that the so not pregnant mamas or not pregnant at all beauties can wear. I’m talking about basic leggings! If I were not pregnant I would have never discovered this basic comfortable staple. Now before I was pregnant I lived in legging! I loved legging because they were comfortable and simply could go with anything. I sure was one of those gals that was told legging are not pants lol. Somehow when I would shop for leggings I hated how they fell at my hips, rolled down, cut my figure, and made my body look weird. Since I have a very curvy body some of the legging were not long enough in the back! Once I became pregnant with a barely there baby bump I was excited to shop for maternity clothes. I knew the first thing I was going to grow out of were my bottoms. So I headed out to a few retailers like Old Navy, H&M, and Motherhood Maternity. I was in search for bottoms that would last me throughout my pregnancy. Keep in mind I was still fitting into my regular bottoms at this time. I went ahead and purchased a few basic leggings from all three retailers. What I discovered was that not only the fit was better, but the waist part was higher and tucked in all imperfections. It gave me a very form-fitting silhouete due to the band and extra fabric going above my navel. These leggings did not look frumpy underneath my tops. Also, it was like wearing a pair of spanks ,so no more of the unnecessary muffin top that basic legging give. Here are my few following picks.
H&M MAMA LEGGINGS $12.99
Old Navy Maternity Full-Panel Jersey Leggings $12-$14.94
Motherhood Secret Fit Belly Maternity Denim Leggings $29.98
Motherhood Secret Fit Belly Maternity Leggings $24.98
Make sure you guys do shop the sales specially at Motherhoo.com because they always have great promotions.
If you all know by know I love Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Elixer and eye cream. Well Kiehls has done it again by providing another item for my skin regime with the essential botanicals that Midnight Recovery contains. For 2017 they have launched a Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil. This botanical cleanser is so gentle to the skin that it cleanses it without clogging your skin. It can be used to gently cleans skin or just remove makeup. I learned that using just a little bit of this product goes a long way. You want to take a few drops of it and massage it between fingers to warm up. Later you want to apply it in designated area and massage on the skin to melt away your makeup. After you can wipe off with a cotton pad or rinse it off with your favorite face wash.
This botanical cleansing oil is enriched with an aromatic blend of pure botanical oils such as squalane, evening primrose oil, and lavender.
So here is another lip product review for you dolls! I am a big fan of liquid lipsticks that last long and that keep lips smooth. I’ve come across so many liquid lip products that have been drying to my lips. So far these Everlasting Liquid Lip products have been true to their name ! I came across this mini liquid lipstick set by Kat Von D for $49 on their website www.katvondbeauty.com
If you are a daring gal these are for you because it comes with a variety of colors that can be mixed together to create another beautiful shade. If you dare to use them alone it comes with two new exclusive colors in “PLATH” and “ROXY”.What I like about this set is that it comes with bold colors and everyday colors. Personally the bold colors in this set are “L.U.V” (a violet purple), “ECHO” (a deep blue), and “ROXY” (a deep purple).
I can personally say that I don’t need plenty of applications of coats to get a true color. The lip product can last for several hours while I even drink or eat. Everlasting liquid lipsticks are not drying and actually make your lips feel smooth for a kissable lip effect. I personally recommend to have lips hydrated and exfoliated before applying any kind of lip product
Here are a few swatches for you from left to right we have “PLATH”, “SANTA SANGRE”,”LOVE SICK”,”MOTHER”, “BACKSTAGE BAMBI”,”L.U.V.”,”ROXY”, and “ECHO”
If you are looking for an instant glow try Origins Original Skin Retexturizing mask with Rose Clay. Not only does it smell rosie ,but it will help vanish any visible pores.This mask will deeply help clean skin while refining skin’s texture and restoring skin’s natural radiance. This amazing mask has mediterranean rose clay, Canadian willow herb, and exfoliating jojoba beads. Don’t worry the jojoba beads are so gentle that will still deep clean your skin. To apply gently wash your skin and pat dry. Add a decent amount of this mask and massage onto skin allowing the product to sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes have passed rinse off with warm water and apply moisturizer.
If you are like many people whos skin becomes dryer once the temperature drops. I suggest you use Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm by Kiehl’s. This moisture balm will keep your skin hydrated during the freezing weather. It is known that when this moisuture balm was created it was tested in cold weathers to see if it was effective. The moisterizer is so gentle and comfortable to the skin. It is also very rich in creaming without the streaky olines that we find after using an over moisterizing cream. Your skin will absorb the moisture and help retain skins natural moisture. This product is formulated with Edelweiss Flower extract. This extract is known to thrive in high altitudes of the Swiss Alps according to the Kiehl’s website. What I enjoy about this balm is not only does it provide 24 hour hydration ,but it helps strengthen the skin’s barrier to look in hydration.
