My BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD, Heather, swears by Ponds Cold Cream. Cold cream was my go to years & years ago, but with so many makeup removing products on the market I honestly forgot about it. I was recently out of makeup removing cleansers and decided to pick up Ponds Cold Cream while perusing Target one day. I 100% forgot how much I love this product and I am SO HAPPY it’s now back in my skincare routine.Continue reading “Budget Beauty: Ponds Cold Cream”
The first Face Mask Monday of the year goes to a budget beauty buy, the Olay Glow Boost White Charcoal Clay Mask! When Olay came out with these stick face masks I thought to myself, wow this looks super easy. & guess what, it is super easy! Easy to apply, easy to remove, just all around…easy.
Olay is a super trustworthy brand, and when they came out with their line of mask sticks, it was a total game changer. Right now I only have the Glow Boost White Clay, but as my mask collection dwindles in this new year, I plan on adding the rest of the collection to my own!Continue reading “Face Mask Monday: Olay Glow Boost White Charcoal Clay Mask”
I’m all about Budget Beauty when it comes to skincare. There are some awesome wallet friendly skincare brands and products on the market! Recently, I’m slowly coming around to introducing more budget friendly makeup options, a couple of which are the CoverGirl TruBlend products. I often partner with Influenster when new products come out- so I was super excited when I got a nice little CoverGirl package in the mail! I received four products, I’ll feature two of them today, and two next week.
The first product I tried out was the new TruBlend Base Business Primer. I love a good primer, especially because I have oily skin. & I need a primer to set my makeup up for success through the day. I typically reach for high end primers, thinking that the quality is better than your average drug store brand. However, I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the TruBlend Base Business Primer! I’ve been using it daily before work, after applying my current moisturizer, & I’m loving how my makeup looks after a long day of teaching!Continue reading “Budget Beauty: CoverGirl TruBlend”
Happy Monday! Can you believe it’s already December?! 2019 is right around the corner, and to be honest, it’s kinda freaking me out. Anyway, I digress. I’m here today to share a great Budget Beauty product, and excellent stocking stuffer, the Simple Hydrating Booster.
Simple is a great skincare brand that stays true to its name. If you have sensitive skin, or strongly dislike any scented skincare products, Simple is def for you. I’m a huge fan of their micellar water, and now I’ve been hooked on this hydrating booster too!
I haven’t done a Face Mask Monday in a while, so I thought today would be the perfect day to share one of my favorite budget beauty face masks with you! Not only is the L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask Clear & Comfort face mask inexpensive, but the texture & application process is great!
L’Oreal has been killin it with their product lineup lately. From face & hair masks, to new exfoliating scrubs, L’Oreal has been doing an awesome job producing high quality products at a perfect price point. This fun, blue, mask is seaweed clay based and only needs to sit for 10 minutes before washing off. I love applying this mask right after a shower, and hangin’ in my robe for 10 minutes before needing to take it off.
First off, I’m a huge Neutrogena fan, I think they really are the best for budget friendly, high quality, products. I’ve used a variety of Neutrogena products since middle school (!!) and I have never been disappointed.
There is no oil or alcohol in this product, the witch hazel and aloe vera do an incredible job working together as a natural astringent and calming agent. My skin can be sensitive at times, but I’ve experienced no irritation (particularly to my rosacea) since adding the Pixi Glow Tonic to my routine.
I’m really enjoying using this product as the weather gets more cold, I want to make sure my skin is exfoliated to remove dead cells, but I don’t want to over do it. I’m noticing this toner is prepping my skin beautifully for a strong moisturizer before my daily makeup routine.
I’m looking forward to adding some more Pixi products to my routine this upcoming year, it’s a great brand at the perfect price point!
If you’re wondering what micellar water is let me fill ya in. Micelles are tiny cleansing oil molecules that draw out dirt, makeup, anything yuck you don’t want at the end of the day, leaving your skin cleansed and pure. This particular micellar water has Vitamin C and B3, which helps to hydrate and purify skin as you’re removing makeup.
Another part about Simple’s Micellar Water that I love is how fresh and pure my skin feels after using it. There’s no residue, & you don’t need to rinse after use. Since the solution using Triple Purified Water, it leaves you with such a clean and great feeling.
Simple’s Micellar Water is perfect for removing your more everyday makeup, versus heavier makeup and eye makeup. I love using it nightly, and the price point is almost too good to be true. Def pick it up next time you’re in your local drugstore, Ulta, or Target!
Since this is a brightening product it will help to correct any dark spots thanks to kojic acid, it also evens skin tone as the antioxidants and vitamins penetrate and treat your skin. The hyaluronic acid, which is super popular in many products lately, aids with strengthening elasticity and delivering moisture. Lastly, ginseng boots collagen so skin will look more energized, while Shea butter is a great hydrator, and is perfect for the change of weather we’re experiencing. No dry skin over here!
The moisturizer is packed to the brim with great ingredients, and I love that I can feel how high quality the ingredients are when I apply the Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer each morning. After using it for over a month I’ve had no issues with this product. My skin is bright and hydrated, and it works perfectly under makeup. No need to worry about this moisturizer making your skin oily while wearing makeup for an entire day, it’s a great base.
The Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer is luxurious, without breaking the bank. Oh yeah, & it smells spectacular. I love the scent of all Valentia products, fresh and sort of citrus-y.
