Updated Skincare Regimen- July 2014

Hey guys!! Back in January I updated everyone on what I was currently using on my skin and you can see that post HERE! Since then I have changed my skincare routine and just wanted to give an update.


Cleanser- L'Oreal Ideal Clean Foaming Gel Cleanser- This bottle is almost empty but I have been loving this cleanser in the morning. I may try something else since its so hot now. I'm open to suggestions!!

Toner- Apple Cider Vinegar- Still using this as a toner. I just love it and I also use this in my hair.

Eye Cream- Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel- I'm going to use this until I'm out. It does help with puffiness in the mornings but I need to be using something for anti-aging soon.

Sunscreen- L'Oreal Sublime Sun- I am on my second bottle of this and really love it. Its not too greasy on my face and doesn't make it oily.

Moisturizer- Korres Pomegranate Balancing Cream-Gel Moisturizer- I purchased this a few months ago and just love it for the Spring and Summer. The only thing is I have to watch how much I apply due to being more oily in my T-Zone this time of the year!


Now my nighttime routine has changed a bit. I wanted to try something new. I was using Coconut Oil just as my cleanser and makeup remover.

Makeup Remover- Alcone Make-Off- I purchased this at IMATS this past April and so far I have been liking them. I will do a full review on these later on.

Cleanser- Clean and Clear Night Relaxing Deep Cleansing Face Wash- This is a new product that I saw in Target and it was only 5-6 dollars. So far so good with this cleanser. A full review will come on this product soon too.

Toner- Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water- This bottle is just about empty and I'm going to try out the cleansing water that I got in Birchbox last month.

Eye Cream- Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel- I'm still on the search for a nightly eye cream, I'm open to suggestions.

Moisturizer- Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil- I'm getting sad that this bottle is about gone! I really love this facial oil and I may try some other ones while I save up to buy the full size container!

Masks, Scrubs and Lip Products

I try to exfoliate my face twice a week and use a mask once a week. Sometimes I forget to do so and I love having multi-purpose products!!

When I do forget to exfoliate or use a mask, I reach for Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Extreme Renewal Exfoliating Facial. (Boy that was a mouth full lol). It is a mask and exfoliate in one. This really gives my skin a nice glow while getting the dead skin cell off and leaving it so soft and smooth.

When I do remember to exfoliate, I have been using Derma-E Microdermabrasion Scrub that I got in one of my Ipsy bags. I love the results I get with this scrub. A review will be coming on this.

For my mask, I'm still using Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel. Its still a favorite of mine.

I have added a lip care routine to my beauty regimen. I made this DIY Lip Scrub that I haven't blogged about yet but will soon. After I exfoliate my lips, I apply Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment. I do this lip treatment for day and night. It really has helped my lips look and feel smooth and stay moisturized.

So that is it for my updated skincare routine. I will probably do another one once Fall or Winter hits. What are your favorite skincare products? Comment below and let me know!!

So Sunday, my boyfriend and I had a kid-free day. We went to brunch, saw Think Like A Man Too (which was so good and  funny! Go see it if you haven't yet) and hung out. 

An updated Hair Routine Video is in the works along with some overdue reviews lol!!


  1. Great routine! I use coconut oil to remove my makeup when I'm wearing heavy water proof it! I normally make my own lip scrubs also but I'm dying to try the Josie Maran. I love the packaging.

    1. Thanks Keisha!! I may go back to my coconut oil, just wanted to try makeup remover wipes. I love the cute packing for Josie Maran!

  2. Wow you have a pretty through regimen! I never would think to use apple cider vinegar as a toner. I actually don't use toner at all..not sure why lol

    1. Thanks Tanya. I saw someone on YouTube talk about using Apple Cider Vinegar for a toner and been using it even since then!

  3. So many great things here! Great skincare routine!

  4. i've been testing out one skincare line on one side of my face and liked it so much i've switched it over!

    1. That is an interesting things to do when testing out new items. Thanks for the tip and stopping by Elle!!

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.
