Ultra Facial Cleanser

As you already know, my skin care routine is soooooo important to me. Like I always say, your foundation is only as good as the skin underneath.  

Ok, so with that being said let me tell you all about the ULTRA FACIAL CLEANSER, which has my skin feeling and looking good honey!

This amazing cleanser effectively dissolves my makeup, oil and dirt with no problem.  It has a thick creamy consistency that feels so good on my skin   After I cleanse my face there is ZERO makeup left behind.

The Ultra Facial Cleanser has
  • Avocado Oil 
  • Apricot Kernel Oil and....
Squalane: A signature Kiehl’s ingredient, Squalane is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. It has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed, Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple.
Try it and thank me later! (wink)

The beauty benifits of Vitamin C

August 17, 2015

Have you heard about beauty benefits of Vitamin C? Well hunti, you are about to hear right NOW! I recently saw a new study and had to share...

There are certain foods that can greatly help the appearance of the skin; smoothing wrinkles and fine lines and easing skin dryness. These include healthy proteins, especially oily fish like salmon, as well as quality fats like avocados, almonds and olive oil, and the vitamins A, B, C and E.

The famous Vitamin C can significantly enhance skin health and appearance and is becoming known as an anti wrinkle vitamin. It helps to increase collagen levels in the body, which is the body’s most abundant protein. Collagen acts to connect the body together and is found in skin, hair, nails, bones and muscles.

Vitamin C is not produced naturally in the body and must be obtained from sources like citrus fruits, dark leafy greens, tomatoes, berries and vitamin supplements. Collagen declines in the body after age 40 and can be depleted by a high sugar intake, fast foods and smoking.

In support of vitamin C as an anti wrinkle vitamin, a study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition announced the results of researchers from the United Kingdom. They discovered that higher vitamin C intakes were associated with a lower likelihood of a wrinkled skin appearance and skin dryness. Vitamin C majorly improved overall skin appearance in a study of 4,025 women aged 40 to 74.

In my next post, I'll discuss some amazing products such as moisturizing serums with vitamin C in it.


Well as always, I hope this helps!

My Current Obsession

Have you recently stopped by your favorite beauty store such as Ulta or Sephora and noticed the Good Karma brush is always out of stock? Well honey, it's a good reason for that.... It's freaking AWESOME!

The Good Karma Optical Blurring brush is absolutely great for any liquid, cream or powder foundation , this cruelty-free brush blends and buffs makeup to a flawless finish. The densely packed shape distributes product incredibly evenly. But most importantly it doesn't shed!!!! GET IT ASAP!!!!

Well anyhoo, I hope this helps!

Cheap Alternative to MakeUp Brushes

February 21, 2015

If you know like I know, then you know good makeup brushes will definitely allow you to achieve a BEAT face!  Unfortunately makeup brushes are super duper expensive, especially if you're paying for a good quality, shed free brush!

Honestly,  most of us can't afford to pay $60 or $70 for the good brushes from Mac, IT cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Inglot, Urban Decay and the list goes on. No need to worry hunti, I gotcha! I found some great affordable alternatives which proved to be just as useful!!!

Belive it or not, Artist paint brushes are a great cheap alternative to those expensive makeup brushes such as MAC and they serve the same purpose. Go to craft store such as hobby Lobby or Michaels and look for Loew Cornell paint brushes. Loew Cornell brushes are made of goat hair, which is the same material as most good, shed free cosmetic brushes.

I promise you can get a full brush set for less than $20! Well as always I hope this helps...
