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!

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…
