New Skincare Products and Reviews

Happy Tuesday, almost Wednesday lol!! It was busy day for me. My son was off from school so we went to go vote and did food shopping and I was trying to cook and clean up while he was making a mess with his toys lol!! I finally got a chance to be by myself and get this post up. This is going to be on some skincare products that I have picked up in the past month or two and have been using for a while. So let's get into the reviews!!

L'Oreal Paris Active Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15

I was in Walmart and it was hard trying to find a moisturizer to try out. There were so many to choose from and it took me a while. I picked this one up because of the SPF and the price of it too lol. With the colder months ahead, I need a heavier moisturizer for my face because it gets so dry. This has been working very well. My skin is so soft, it stays moisturized all day and its not heavy on my skin. The only thing about it is that my T-Zone gets a bit oily but overall, I love my new moisturizer.

Equate Beauty Reviving Anti Wrinkle And Firming Eye Cream

I also picked this up at Walmart when I purchased the moisturizer. I didn't realize how expensive eye creams were!!! I know you can't put a price on your skincare but sheesh, there is a limit with me lol!! I was looking at eye creams forever too and I was going to pick up on my Olay but I saw this and decided to give it a try. This eye cream is supposed to be comparable to a L'Oreal eye cream ( threw the box out so I don't remember the exact name). I'm not sure if I'm seeing results but I notice a little difference in how my eye area looks. I guess it takes a while to really see results. I do like using this eye cream and will update if I see any improvements. 

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads

I just ran out of the facial cleanser I was using and was looking for something else to try. I saw this at Target and there was a sale going on for the skincare for buy one,get one half off. I purchased this and the makeup remover wipes. I will do a review on those as soon as I start using them. I am in love with these cleansing pads. They are two sided with a cleansing side and a gentle exfoliating side. I'm amazed at the dirt that is still on my face that I missed the night before. I think I need to change my nightly cleanser now that I will talk about next. Here is what the pads looks like.

I just love them, they are my new favorite. I may start using them at night or invest in a cleansing brush. 

Clean and Clear Night Relaxing Deep Cleansing Face Wash

I mentioned this in my updated skincare regimen that you can find HERE. I was interesting in changing up my regimen and start using a nightly cleanser. I really want to get my hands on a Clarisonic soon because I've heard good things about them from friends and reviews online. This seemed to be working until I discovered the dirt I've been missing the next morning. It does have a gentle, soothing scent that helps wind you down and relax you. I guess I'll keep using this until its empty or find something else to use.

So that is it for my new skincare products. Have you tried any of these? What were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know!! Hope you enjoy the rest of the week and see you guys Friday!!

Can you believe November is here already? Time for one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving!!

I had to get a new phone over the weekend, my old one was doing some crazy things and it was time for a new one. I love my new LG G3.

So funny that Starbucks already had the Christmas drinks out on November 1. 


  1. I know!! Eye creams are so expensive....but if you can find one that works really well for you, then it is totally worth it. Do use the clean and clear cleansers on occasion, however I have not seen this one. Is it new?

    1. I think this Clean and Clear cleanser is pretty new. This is my first time using a product by them. Hopefully I find a good eye cream soon. Thanks for reading Keisha!

  2. The Clean and Clear Night Relaxing Deep Cleansing Face Wash interests me. The relaxing part sounds great but if it doesn't get all your makeup or dirt off your face then its not worth it.

    1. Yea, it sucks that it doesn't get all the dirt but I thought it was a pretty good cleanser. Thanks for reading Tanya!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
