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!!

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.


(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. 

(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! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

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…
