My Favorite Face Masks!

17 Nov

I’m pretty big on skin care as most of you already know and my daily and weekly regimens are pretty intense. I take my skin seriously because I only get one face and quite frankly I don’t want a wrinkly one. Aging gracefully is beautiful but premature aging is not! (in my opinion) An important part of my regimen is face masks. I do a mask once or twice a week depending on the condition of my skin. My favorite face masks are by origins are pretty amazing! Shop my favorites below:)

One is a charcoal mask that clears pores. $26mask The other one clears pores as well but is a little more focused on clearing up acne and oil. I actually use this one as a spot treatment on my acne while I sleep. Out of trouble mask $26

They are also available in smaller pod sample sizes if you’re curious on which mask is right for you. $4 each

Your Razor’s New Best Friend!

25 Oct

I have been using, and loving Yorz razor wraps for the last two weeks. In my home, my wife and I use 4 razors at a time(2 each). To avoid mix-ups, we literally have to write our initials on the handle of the razors with a black sharpie marker. I am happy to say that writing our initials on the handle is now a thing of the past. With Yorz razor wraps, we choose our own colors and there is no more confusion.  The soft  silicone wraps come in 7 colors and are super comfortable to hold, which leads me to my next thought. No more nicks!!! I’ve cut myself so many times when the razor has slipped out of my soapy hand in the past. These wraps are so handy, they even have a soft hooked end that can hang on most shower caddies, letting excess water drip off keeping your razor dry and extending the life of the blades. Nobody likes a wet, rusty razor. These are so perfect for households that have people sharing showers- College dorms, roommate situations, families etc. With these wraps, you will never wonder which razor is YORZ again.

Yorz Razor wraps fit any disposable razor with a straight handle and retail for $4.99 each or $11.99 for a 3 pack.

Fall Lipstick Must have

2 Oct

Every year myself and countless bloggers compile lists of our favorite Fall lipsticks to share with the world. Every year the same lipstick is on my list. I’m sharing only one color this year because I feel so strongly that it should be a part of every woman’s Fall lip color collection. Without a doubt, Mac Rebel is my go-to, must have Fall lip color.mac

The beautiful rich berry/wine hue is gorgeous and looks amazing on all skin tones as well.  I can’t even remember what tube I’m on at this point- I literally wear it all Fall long and into Winter as well. I love love love this color! What are your favorite fall lippies?

My Favorite Everyday Nail Color!

12 Jul

I’ve found the perfect year round everyday nail color. It’s a pinkish clear hue by Essie called Sugar Daddy. I LOVE this color. It’s almost clear but very light pink at the same time. It basically goes with everything and makes your nails look super healthy. I’m on my 2nd bottle and I never go through nail polish that fast. I was explaining it to a friend as the perfect color for everyone, from the color enthusiasts to the non polish wearing. It compliments all skin tones as well. I recommend you pick a bottle up to add to your collection!
