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!

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.

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…
