Tips!! (Reblogged from StyleCaster)

Flat irons, blow-dryers, and other hot tools should always be used in moderation. Heat damage, be it a few split ends or a straight-up fried mess, is inevitable. But come summertime, we’ve got to worry about that, in addition to the poofiness that occurs when attempting to maintain a hairstyle that requires daily touch-ups amidst the…

Origins Skincare

Origins is a beauty brand that has been around for quite awhile. I used to always choose samples by them whenever I’d order something from Sephora. While not budget friendly for most, I still have always been super fascinated by their products and hope to eventually be able to afford them on the regular. With that being said, here is my wish list of a few Origins products.

The Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask is more reasonably priced at only $27 but still pricey for a mask. This intrigues me because of my excessively thirsty dry skin. Plus, I’ve sampled this before and really liked the smell of it but felt the sample really wasn’t enough to get anything out of.

The Origins Original Skin Essence Lotion comes in at $29 and promises silky smooth glowy skin. What wouldn’t be lovable about that?

 

These are just a few of the products I’ve been looking at. Have any of you ever tried any of these? What Origins products HAVE you tried?? Let me know in the comments below. Good or bad, I always love hearing from y’all. =D Stay beautiful!!

Food for Thought! (*Reblogged from BeautyByDes)

Did you know that your pillowcase may be the cause of those unwanted acne breakouts that just won’t go away? The oils, hair care products and dirt from our hair and skin is transferred to our pillowcases each time we lay our faces on them. Just like how our skin or hair can be clogged […]

My Pixi Beauty Wish List

I love, love, love Pixi Beauty. Ever since using their Glow Tonic, I’ve become a bit obsessed. This post will feature some of the products on my wish-list for Pixi Beauty. Read on! =)

 

Pixi-Rose-Caviar-Essence

This Pixi Rose Caviar Essence has been on my wish-list for months and months! Not only is the packaging adorbs, but I have a big problem when it comes to serums. I love them. I have super dry skin so anything that helps make my skin feel soft and smooth is a MUST for me.

This Pixi Rose Oil Blend is another similar product to the serum. I guess I have an obsession with roses? =P  The product claims to help with skin’s elasticity and glowyness so I’d be curious to see if it lives up to the hype. It would definitely be a little overpriced for just a moisturizer if there weren’t any added benefits. With that being said, however, I am very keen to try this!

 

pix063_pixi_carolinehirons_doublecleanse_1_1560x1960-8d9rvThe Pixi by Petra+Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse is a coveted item among many beauty gurus. I’ve always been intrigued by the process of double cleansing but have always been hesitant to try it because of my skin being uber dry. This being a cleansing oil and a cream cleanser intrigues me as both those would (I would assume) be beneficial to dry skin.

The Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Plum Quartz are colors that are right up my alley! I love mineral makeup and these colors look amazing. I love that these shades have a bit of shimmer to them and they look like they’d glide on like butter. Not to mention, $12 is a STEAL for an eyeshadow palette.

Last but not least, this Pixi Lash Line Ink looks like the type of eyeliner I would be all over! I love doing wings and my preferred eyeliner is a felt-tip pen as I have more control over it vs a liquid liner brush. I just love the look of this and would love to try it.

Have any of you lovelies tried any of Pixi’s products before? Any that I haven’t mentioned that you would recommend? I’m hoping to purchase a few of these so that I can do reviews later on down the line with them. We shall see!! As always, stay beautiful guys! =D

My Current Nighttime Beauty Routine

Hey guys!! I’ve seen a-lot of blog posts about skincare routines so I thought I’d share my current nighttime routine. My skin has been seeing a-lot of dry patches and redness lately. So I switched from my usual cleanser “Neutrogena Deep Clean Shine Control Mask/Cleanser” to this Aveeno Active Natural Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser.  It does a great job of controlling my redness without stripping my skin of its natural oils.

After cleansing, I will periodically use my Pixi Glow Tonic to exfoliate the dry patches on my face. I just put a little bit on a cotton round and gently slough away all those icky dead skin cells!

After the tonic, I’ll either go straight to my moisturizer or use a face mask. Some of my favorites recently have been Earth Therapeutics Deep Purifying Charcoal Bubbles MaskI also really love the St. Ives Soothing Oatmeal Mask . If it’s not a mask night, my current moisturizer in my routine is the e.l.f. cosmetics Nourishing Night Cream. It’s a great cream that isn’t too heavy for these spring/summer months ahead.

I then finish off with my e.l.f. cosmetics Illuminating Eye Cream which is lightweight and never sticky.

If my skin is particularly really dry, I’ll usually apply some sort of serum before my moisturizer.

My skincare routines do change periodically. Sometimes a product just doesn’t cut it or I’ve built up a tolerance to a product and have to try a new one. However, this is my current skin-care routine and it seems to be working alright for now.

Have you tried any of these products before? Tried a product that I haven’t listed that you really love? Let me know in the comments below. Stay beautiful! =D
