Week 1 Results

So in my previous post, I'm on the hunt for finding a skincare regimen that works for me. I'm going to be doing this for about four weeks and hopefully find something that works. Here is a recap on the products I used during week one:

Daytime: Cleanser- Nastassja
                Toner- Apple Cider Vinegar
                Serum- Epionce
                Eye Cream- Yes To Cucumbers
                Moisturizer- Korres

Nighttime:Coconut Oil
                 Cleansing Water
                 Eye Cream and Moisturizer(same as daytime)

The first day of the new routine, my face did break out a little but calmed down after rubbing an ice cube across it. My skin felt like it was burning, maybe because I was doing something different. On Wednesday, I did exfoliate at night with Sukiface Exfoliating Cleanser (it is in my August Monthly Favorites post). On Thursday, I realized I ran out of my cleanser and used a cleanser called Menza that I received in one of my boxes. I really did not like the way it made my face feel after using it. It just made my face feel a bit dry and I just didn't like how my face felt. I went to Target and purchased L'oreal Ideal Clean Foaming Gel Cleanser to replace my other one. I did not wash my face that night for some reason, I think I was really tired( Good thing I didn't have on makeup that day). I do love how my skin felt smooth and really clean.I did not use a mask during this week but will in future weeks.  I did have a few flare ups but overall, I did like the results. I feel that I don't really need to use a serum. I guess I need to do more research on what serums do and if I really do need to use it with my skincare routine.

Week 2 has started and the next post will list everything I will be using!

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.



Eyes

(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid. 

Face
(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol!

~**Drea Notes**~
Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.








Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
