My Favorite Vitamins

Now that I am getting older, this is the perfect time to make sure that I am taking my vitamins. I am mezmorized by these Thrive Thyroid and Metabolism vitamins.

These Eu Natural Products are perfect for me. I have been going to the gym a lot more and theis will help to regulate my metabolism and promote hormonal balance.

They are vegetarian and gluten-free.

Product Review: Olay Clay Stick Masks

I know that I have been gone for a little bit now, but I am back and better than ever. Expect more blog posts coming to you soon. I recently had my nails trimmed down so now it’s that much easier to type! #GirlProbs.

Today I have a product review for you. I have been hearing all about how amazing these clay masks are, so I had to find out for myself.

These little guys retail for $13.49 each, which isn’t too bad for a drug store brand. I picked them up at my local CVS.

There are three different masks;

  • Olay Glow Boost White Charcoal Clay Face Mask Stick

  • Olay Pore Detox Black Charcoal Clay Face Mask Stick

  • Olay Fresh Rest Pink Mineral Complex Clay Face Mask Stick

I am always in need of a good detox and some glowy skin.

So I picked up the two masks that would fulfill my needs. Let me just say, I am 100% happy with my choices. These masks are so easy to use, they are mess-free, and travel-friendly!

I don’t have to worry about using a brush to apply the mask, I don’t have to worry about getting my hands dirty, and I don’t have to worry about the lid getting messy. It is the perfect mask for me.

The packaging is adorable and easy to use, it makes me want to use it all of the time.

As for my skin, it has been clear and glowy, just the way I like it!

I am giving this product a 10/10 for sure. Have you tried it yet? If not, what are you doing with your life?

Product Review: Beauty RX Exfoliating Pads

 

Another day, another skincare product! Hello there, Today I am here to give a review of these Advanced 10% Exfoliating Pads. They are from the brand Beauty RX. Stay tuned to read what I have to say!

Product

This product is an exfoliating pad that is supposed to remove dead skin cells, brighten dull skin, and even texture. It contains 10% buffered and PH-adjusted glycolic acid. It also says that it is paraben free, fragrance-free, and dermatologist tested. It comes with 50 exfoliating pads that are supposed to be used on alternate nights. The product also says that it can be used on all skin types.

Price

On the website, these exfoliating pads run for $70.00 for a one-time delivery. I think that the price is pretty standard for a high-end skincare item. I know that I would pay that much for something to brighten and even out my skin.

Packaging 

The exfoliating pads came in pretty standard packaging, it is easy to access, the overall look of the product is clean and simple. I love it.

Overall Thoughts

I am going to rate this product 5 out of 5 stars. I have been using the exfoliating pads for a little while now, and I believe that it is delivering everything that it promises. It is fragrance-free, I feel as if my skin is brighter now that I have been using it, and so much use comes out of one exfoliating pad. I love this product! The product does have a tingling sensation to it and I would not recommend using this product on open sores, because it will burn like hell. I also feel like there is a lot of product for the price point. All in all, I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone that is in need of some great skin! I am happy to show a before and after photo in a few weeks! Keep a look out for that on my Instagram. If you have any questions about this product, please leave them in the comments.

I hoped that you enjoyed this review and I hoped that it helped!

Favorite Skin Care & Lifestyle Products

Skin care is very important to me, (also white teeth). I am 25 now and am not getting any younger! I need to take care of my skin while I still can. These amazing products are helping me along the way.
  • Freeman Beauty Purifying avocado+oatmeal Clay Mask
  • ELF Illuminating Eye Cream
  • ELF Daily Hydration Moisturizer
  • Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Gel

These amazing, cleansing towelettes, have changed the way that I think of makeup removing wipes completely! I have repurchased them three times. Can you tell that I like them? 

Bath and Bodyworks can never do wrong in my eyes. I have been obsessed with these two scents ever since I purchased them about a month ago. They smell like Heaven!

Last, but certainly not least, this product is a game changer. I have a problem with really dry feet. It’s so bad that it hurts to walk sometimes. Ever since I have started using this product, my feet don’t hurt. They don’t crack, they just feel so much better. I am so in love.

Product Review: Rodan +FIELDS & GIVEAWAY!

If you don’t already know, the key to good makeup application is great skin. Your face is a canvas, if you have the right tools, your painting will come out flawless. For today’s Makeup Monday I have a Rodan +FIELDS product review and giveaway. My friend Laura and I will be giving away 5 mini facials, so stay tuned!

In order to figure out what kind of treatment I needed, Laura, sent me a solution tool so that she could send over the proper samples!

I received the travel sized version of the Reverse Brightening Regiment.

The travel size comes with four steps:

  • Deep exfoliating wash
  • Intensive brightening toner
  • Dual active brightening complex
  • Broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen

Bonus:

Microdermabrasion Paste

Being someone that wears a lot of makeup, I need that intense exfoliating feel, so that I know my skin is being cleaned. I am also someone that has a lot of discoloration and some dark spots. The toner and brightening complex will help to reduce those problems. We all need SPF in our lives, it is the most important part of skin care!

My first thought when I received the products in the mail is that the travel size has a pretty fair amount of product. I love the simple yet bold packaging. The white makes the products look clean, while the yellow is bright, in your face, and refreshing.

Deep exfoliating wash:

While testing out the deep exfoliant wash, the smell was incredible, I am a sucker for an orange scent, and that is exactly what I got! I received the deep exfoliate feeling just as promised, it really made me feel like I got every inch of makeup off of my face. A clean face is a happy one!

Intensive Brightening Toner:

This toner has a tingling effect, which I love, that helps me to know that the product is actually working and cleansing!

Dual active brightening complex:

This contains retinol to help keep the pesky breakouts away. It feels so soothing and applies so smoothly.

Broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen:

This sunscreen is a thick consistency, it has a hint of a sunscreen smell, but not too overpowering. SPF is a great product to have on under your makeup. The sun ages you, protect the skin!

All in all, I would rate Rodan + FIELDS products a 5/5. Trust me when I say that you need it in your life.
