Get Ready With Me featuring Burt's Bees Beauty

Get Ready With Me featuring Burt's Bees Beauty

We all have our favourite makeup products, probably ranging from low to high end. And with so many different beauty products available in the market, you're not restricted to using one brand to create your makeup look.

When it comes to getting ready, makeup wise, the products I use come from various brands. But as fun as having a lot of options can be, I sometimes get carried away and mix around products from left to right.

To keep things simple and fun (and a tad bit challenging), I like to create basic makeup looks using products strictly from one brand, this time around I'm Getting Ready with Burt's Bees Beauty.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen SPF 50

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen SPF 50, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream, Neutrogena All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes Review

Whether you're heading to a sunny destination or simply running errands in the city, it's important to wear sunscreen daily! Yes, I know, it can be tedious to apply sunscreen on every. single. day especially when some days aren't as sunny and hot but the amount of times I've been told the importance of sun protection, the more I drilled it into my routine. By now, I can't get away from not applying SPF on (wherever my skin would be exposed to the sun) before heading out the door everyday.

But there had been times when I would dread applying sunscreen. Why? Because of the texture, the white cast, the scent, one or all of those just makes me feel uncomfortable. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen in SPF 50 seemed promising. Having used and love Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Creams, I was confident the sunscreen would provide a lightweight formula that instantly feels hydrating and moisturized.

Revlon Kiss Balm states they provide hydrating formula infused with natural fruit oils, 24 hour hydration, sheer colour, and SPF 20. I like the sounds of those claims, let's see if they live up their hype.

Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment

Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment first impression review. Plus comparison to the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask.

I have my fair share of acne showing up unexpectedly. As much as I love my Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask (review), I don't always have 10 minutes to sit around with a mask on, let alone wearing it in public. Sometimes I just want a quick solution that I can carry on-the-go.

The Many Uses of Bio-Oil

Bio-Oil Benefits. The many uses of Bio-Oil review.

Exceptionally known for helping reduce stretch marks in pregnancy, Bio-Oil has been a cult beauty favourite for many. I have heard about Bio-Oil for years but felt it wouldn't benefit me. I have seen incredible results from new moms who used the product and showed little-to-no stretch marks throughout their pregnancy. Then one day someone told me that it can get rid of acne scars. As someone who suffers from acne scars, I was intrigued.

But did you know can use Bio-Oil for other skincare related problems? Here are a few ways you can use Bio-Oil and if there are other uses that I didn't mention, please feel free to share in the comments below!

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Sensitive

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Sensitive First Impression Review

Over the past few years, I thought the redness on my cheeks were just going through a phase but they were not. My skin had suddenly developed sensitivity. I took a pause on the products I had been using and searched for products that can calm the redness down.

It's been a couple of months of really taking care of my skin and the results are showing. I had to remind myself that it takes time, take it day-by-day and understanding what the skin needs. If products provided immediate results quicker than instant noodles, we would all be walking around with perfect skin. I came across a few products that are very calming towards the skin, one of those is from La Roche-Posay.

February Empties

Set a goal and go! February 2018 Empties and Review.

Welcome to my first ever Empties post!

You're probably wondering why I never do empties post. Let my tweet explain:
Pretty self-explanatory - I didn't want to do an empties post featuring two items. It takes me a while to finish products for some odd reason but I always remind myself to "Set a goal and go!" And right at the very beginning of February I had just finished a product and told myself to try and finish up more products that I have lying around, especially all the sample packets I have "collected". I had already finished one product in the month of February, lets see if I can keep up and finish more than three. Goal accomplished!? I would say so.

essie Treat Love & Color

essie Treat Love & Color Strengthener Nail Polish Review

Whether I go out with a fresh manicure or bare nails, I have always been told my nails are nice and healthy. I take it as a compliment, my nails do look good, even when they're bare. But don't judge a book by its cover, my nails are weak and can chip easily.

I always look for nail polishes (especially base coats) as well as nail polish removers that are formulated to strengthen the nails. essie's Treat Love & Color provides a 1-step care and colour formula to strengthen normal to dry/brittle nails.

Dermalogica UltraCalming

Dermalogica Ultra Calming Barrier Defense Booster and Calm Water Gel Review

Cold weather can take a toll on the skin, especially on the face. That's why before and during the colder seasons I take extra precaution to make sure my skin is well-hydrated, protected and taken care of. But sometimes the cooler weather plus the heating can be a little too harsh, dries up the moisture on my skin and causes irritation.

Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin's highly reactive state. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stringing is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin's protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.

Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups with Dermalogica UltraCalming. Dermalogica's latest products contains their exclusive UltraCalming Complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.

I knew I could rely on L'Oreal with their matte lipsticks. Their Colour Riche Lip Colours are amongst my favourite in terms of formula and shade range so the matte version shouldn't be any different. 

Garnier Fructis 1 Minute Hair Mask

Garnier Fructis Damage Repairing Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask with Papaya Extract First Impression Review

Ever since I started diving into how to really take care of my hair, a regular shampoo and conditioner don't cut it for me. From oil treatments to heat protection, I make sure my hair gets the proper care to keep it healthy and happy. 

I love a good hair mask session. When the comes to it, I usually apply it once a week. I love leaving a hair mask on for about 10 minutes and seeing and feeling the results on my hair. Although I like having some "me time" in the shower, sometimes there is just no time to sit around and wait.

Shopping for an outfit under a certain budget can be a challenge. As someone who loves some retail therapy, topping it with a sale makes everyone and everything happier; the shopper, the business, and the wallet!

Nightly Skin Care Routine

Updated Nightly Skin Care Routine featuring products from Lipidol, Glossier, The Ordinary, Drunk Elephant, Bleu Lavande and many more!

It has been a while since my last skincare routine post. From the products being used to my skin type, a lot has changed. Although my last skincare worked at the time, introducing my skin to new and unfamiliar products caused my skin to have a few episodes of breakouts and reactions throughout the last few years.

Through research and experiments, I managed to find a skin care routine that works with my current skin. My skin type is now normal-to-combination with concerns of acne and redness. That being said, my concern for acne and redness have slowly gone away and I am at a place where I am satisfied with how my skin looks and feels. 

Hello, 2018!

this will be a good year

It's safe to say this past year wasn't easy. There were challenges, adventures, discoveries, lessons learned. I faced my fears and took risks, new skills and opportunities were found, dilemmas that lead to a lot of "what ifs", and well-needed constructive criticism. 

This year, I'm taking what I learned and making improvements to better myself, to not be hard on myself, to always look on the positive side. It's no easy feat but it's a task I'm ready to face. 

Wishing everyone a year filled with happiness, goals and aspiration. Cheers to a New Year - Happy 2018!
