Love it OR Hate it??

Love it OR Hate it??

I feel like the word hate should never be used when speaking about makeup, am I right? But today I bring you some products I love and maybe one I hate or dislike. I’m not sure yet but I’ll explain why.

My first love is this moisturizer from Burt’s Bees. I’ve always liked this company and even more after I watched the documentary on it. I purchased this particular item when we traveled and I forgot my moisturizer at home. As someone who is acne prone and very oily I have a hard time finding products that go well with my skin. This daily moisturizing cream in sensitive has been awesome.

Once again Milk cosmetics blur stick is back on the “love” list. I can’t get enough of it. #MOTD & First Impressions Here I talk more about it. As of now I am still in love. My skin has changed, again! The dry patches are gone but now I have a lot of textured skin. I can’t figure out what’s causing it. But this primer has definitely helped with evening out my face’s appearance.

This is my hate/dislike. This is Urban Decay’s All Nighter Liquid foundation. At first I absolutely loved this foundation. It stays matte all day. . . But here is what I dislike: it oxidizes bad. It changes almost three whole shades. It’s also started to separate on the skin. I can’t figure out if its my routine before applying the foundation or the foundation itself. I mentioned this to my best friend and she looked up reviews and I guess they’re pretty bad. I also feel like I can’t set it with just any setting spray. I think that’s what adds to the separation.

My last LOVE is Tarte’s  Double Duty Beauty Shape tape contour concealer. This concealer took the internet by storm. Of course I also jumped on the bandwagon and haven’t looked back since. It is everything a concealer is supposed to be or do? lol! For a while it was so hard to find it in stores. Something about Tarte not making enough for the demand of it. A little goes a long way so one swipe from the applicator is enough to cover the under eye.

Sculpt and highlight as you mask imperfections with this 2-in-1 full coverage concealer. The hydrating, longwearing formula delivers natural, radiant coverage across all skin types so you can instantly brighten and cover acne, dark circles and redness while softening the look of pores and fine lines. Wear it 1-2 shades lighter or darker, and it works as a creamy highlighter or contouring stick with a lightweight, blendable formula and tapered wand applicator ideal for precise strobing and sculpting. Powered by Amazonian clay and conditioning mango seed and shea butters, the nutrient-rich concealer helps promote skin elasticity and illumination with each crease-free application. Apply it with the all-in-one Quickie Blending Sponge (sold separately) for a quick, complexion fix and flake-free finish anywhere.

Monday Faves!

Monday Faves!

Todays post is going to be part favorites part face regime. I struggle with acne. Theres no denying it. Some days/weeks its calm and almost none existent and others I have huge mountains on my face. I’ve never been ashamed or embarrassed of my acne but I will admit, I am jealous of clear skin. Makeup just looks better on clear canvas.

I usually wash my face in the shower and I use the Burt’s Bees natural acne solutions purifying gel cleanser. Its gentle on the skin that it can be used every day.

• Clinically proven to wash away acne causing bacteria, excess oil and impurities
• Soothes acne-prone skin
• Non-irritating
• Helps reduce acne and prevent breakouts with Salicylic Acid from Willow Bark
• Noncomedogenic
• Dermatologist Tested

Then I use the pure-lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum. This trial size I received in my Ipsy bag and I love it! It is for all skin types. Intensive hydration, firms, brightens, and decreases puffiness. I use it during the day and night. I will definitely buy the normal size, asap!

After all that I moisturize my entire face with the philosophy’s renewed hope in a jar. This moisturizer is so gentle on the skin. Doesn’t make me oily so its a great base for my foundation.

philosophy skin labs’ original breakthrough moisturizer is changing the face of skin care again. the revolutionary lightweight, whipped formula of hope in a jar is renewed and infused with a new innovation: clinically proven skin renewal technology. this groundbreaking formulation features a triple blend of alpha hydroxy acids, 3 forms of hyaluronate plus an asian fruit extract, delivering an even longer-lasting glow and continuous hydration benefits. reaffirm your commitment to beautiful skin with renewed hope and face the future with a whole new outlook.

On days I won’t be wearing makeup I do a scrub (usually only twice a week). For that I use the St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub. I was once told using a scrub every day was actually making my skin produce more oil because of how harsh a scrub can be. It was doing amazing things to my blackheads but my face was a total butter ball. So I cut it down to twice a week. So far its good. To bring back some moisture to my face I moisturize with the Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer. This formula is very thick and makes me oily so I usually use it at night. But, boy, does it leave me feeling soft. So soft!

At night I take off my makeup and use the Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel. I think this was the product to truly help with my acne. I noticed a big change once I started using it. It’s a bit pricey but very worth it. Then I do the charcoal mask by dermale. This left my skin feeling amazing! It didn’t irritate me or cause any redness like mask often do. This sample size I also received in an Ipsy bag. (I know, I’m obsessed!) But I hope to purchase the full size because it feels incredible. I do the mask once a week. Then I just moisturize my eyes and face like usual.

I’ve spent a lot of money trying to find something that worked for me. I am in no way trying to change how I look or who I am. I just want to better my skin. My skin is maturing and it’s time to start taking real care of it. This is just what works for ME and are products I LOVE! In those infamous media world words. . .’They are my Holy Grails.’ (LOL!!) I know I need to incorporate wrinkle reducing products. Also, I have been told my acne is hormonal. Womp Womp!

Any products you have that you recommend?
