Beauty/Skincare Round Up + a GIVEAWAY!

As my skin slowly improves (thanks chemical peels and a different birth control), I’ve been venturing outside my normal make up routine to try new things. Essence sent me this palette (I picked it out) and love the rosy color of the blush. I do love me some blush and still use the holiday palette by.. for the most part, but love the compact that I can easily toss in my bag for work.

Must be 18 and older and in the U.S. to enter!

Simple’s oil balancing wipes is my go-to cleansing wipes, especially post work-out. It doesn’t bug my skin and I love the price. Between skin peels, I like to exfoliate my face with Dr. Brandt’s PoreDermabrasion. I love how smooth my skin feels after using it. Also, Aesop’s hand lotion is really the shit. I love the scent and how soft my calloused, man hands feel after. It really softens them.

I was on the hunt for a super vampy lip color and the man at Sephora suggested Bite lip crayon in aubergine. I have Bite lipsticks in a few other colors and this was exactly the deep tone I was looking for. Goes on nice and is easy for someone like me, who has no patience to take my time and make it perfect–it makes it easy for ya. Milani’s nude lip pencil in very natural and Essence’s nude lip color are also staples for me when I want some low maintenance color.

Again, don’t forget to comment with your email to enter to win the Nerd Skincare masks!

My Winter Hair & Beauty Products!

It’s only January and I’m over winter, which is a bit premature for someone who lives in Michigan and has at least four more months of it. My face and hair are dry and I feel like a hot mess. Thanks to a few products, they help me appear more lively during the cold, dry winter months.
