NeoStrata Bionic Face Serum

True honesty, I used to be afraid to try new face products. Most of that fear is out the window. For the last several months I’ve been slathering (is that a word?) my face up with different anti-aging focused products. Basically, I realized I’m in my 30’s and I better start really caring about my skin. I want to care for skin and my body because I know I’m only getting one. I know that sounds vain but it is what it is folks. No shame here, I want to like my skin as I age. So far I’ve had…

HydroPeptide Nimni Cream

  I’ve been talking serious skincare on the blog for quite some time now. I’ve also had the opportunity to try some great products that have really changed the way I care for my skin. I recently tried Nimni Cream c/o of HydroPeptide. This little jar packs some powerful claims. Nimni Cream contains an amino acid patented technology designed to improve the appearance of the skin’s tone and texture. The creme works to boost and optimize collagen production. Collagen production rejuvenates skin to lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the appearance of fullness and elasticity. Nimni…

Exuviance Microdermabrasion Face Polish

Microdermabrasion, this is a new topic for me on the blog. I’ve collaborated with Exuviance before on a couple different face products and I’m excited to collaborate again on a new product. Exuviance recently sent me the Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish to try out. This face polish is their latest anti-aging product. It works through a triple action approach to skin renewal with a unique blend of physical, chemical and enzymes exfoliates. These ingredients work to deliver instant skin resurfacing benefits. Now, I’m not going to lie. Microdermabrasion scares me a bit. A year or so ago I was really…

Jan Marini Hyla3D HA Activating Complex

   You probably know by now I’m really focused on improving my skincare routine. From my previous posts, you may remember I learned about hyaluronic acid through my skin care esthetician. I’ve been getting professional facials done over the last several months and I love it! She always uses a hyaluronic acid containing product on my face. The results have been awesome so I’ve incorporated a few hyaluronic acid products into my home skincare routine. After using products with this ingredient my face looks visibly hydrated and refreshed. My makeup applies smother and my makeup free natural skin glows afterward.…

D’OR24K and 24K Gold Skincare

Skincare, skincare, skincare – I talk about it all the time. Why? Because taking care of your skin is important! The older I get, the more I realize why when I was young, people said – don’t tan. I tanned, shhh don’t tell anyone. The good news, I haven’t purposely worked on a tan in years and I’m as pale as nature intended me to be. I’m all about embracing and loving the pale! I want my skin to feel good and look healthy for as long as I can. So here we go with another peak into what’s happening…

The Benefits of Body Brushing

Body brushing has been recommended to me multiple times but I didn’t listen. I didn’t think something as simple as dry brushing my skin would produce results. I was very wrong. I started body brushing a few months ago and the results have all been positive. Overall, my skin feels refreshed. I’ve seen an improvement in the smoothness, hydration, and firmness of my skin. I’ve also seen a reduced appearance of cellulite on my legs since beginning body brushing. What is Body Brushing? Trust me, this will be the easiest part of your skincare routine. Body brushing is a process…

DERM E Charcoal Mask and Detox Scrub

Something about starting a new year makes me want to detox my life, wardrobe, and skin. I know that sounds typical and everyone says that but it is so true! I love to start fresh with an area of my life each new year. One area I’ve been focused on before the new year and now into the new year is my skin. I used to think I was taking care of my skin but I started noticing my skin was losing the healthy look and glow I wanted. All it took to see an improvement was an effort to…

Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex

I’m teamed up with Exuviance today and talking about the Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex. If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m on a serious skin care and improvement streak. My goal is to improve my skin and work against the signs of aging (fine lines, etc.) that have appeared in my 30’s. Being in my 30’s, I’ve realized that great skin requires upkeep and care. I have oily skin but at times my skin is more combination than oily. I’m often battling both oil and dryness. Sensitivity is another issue that has appeared in my 30’s. I’m focused on using products…

OzNaturals Vitamin C 20 Serum + Hyaluronic Acid

For the past few months my skin care routine has been heavily focused on anti-aging and skin improving benefits. I’ve tried several products lately which either focus on improving the surface of the skin or provide anti-aging benefits. I recently tried OZNaturals Vitamin C + Sea Hydration Mask c/o of OZNaturals. You can check out the post here. I’m currently using a second product from OZNaturals, the Vitamin C 20  + Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Some of my general skin concerns are dullness, fine lines, oily skin, and a few acne marks. One of my main skin care goals is to…

OzNaturals Vitamin C + Sea Hydration Mask

I’m in my 30’s and I’m realizing how important quality skin care products are. I recently posted about how my skin is in need of anti-aging benefits. I’m focused on products that offer skin improving and anti-aging benefits. Lately, I’ve tried several unique products, each with a different skin care focus. I’ve been using a Vitamin C + Sea Hydration Mask c/o OZNaturals. The Vitamin C + Sea Hydration Mask is a restorative mask designed to soothe, hydrate, and brighten skin with Vitamin C and ocean extracts. The benefits are a reduction in redness, fine lines, and flaky skin. How…

My Summer Skin Care Routine

let’s talk skin care! Lately, I’ve been experimenting with my skin care a bit. I have oily skin that requires the perfect mix of cleansing, toning, exfoliation, and moisturizing. I have some products I’ve been using for years, some newer items, and a list of skincare craves I’m currently lusting over. In preparation for summer I’ve been wanting to spice things up a bit and branch outside of my usual buys!  Today, I’m teamed up with the luxury fashion and beauty community Farfetch. I’ll be giving you a sneak peek into my current skin care routine and be sharing my current…
