Beauty Secrets (Skin Care Edition)


Skin care is a pretty important part of the day to me. It helps me feel clean and confident. Some of these products I swear by, and others I just really want to share my good thoughts on with you. These products are my skin care secrets.

-Oil and Water- you take any cooking oil of your pleaser, I choose olive oil, because I had it handy when I made this and water and put them into a container. I used a container from a travel thing from Target. When you use it you need to shake the bottle, and quickly pour it on to a cotton pad. I use this mixture to remove my eye makeup when I have more, or more stubborn makeup on. I can really concentrate and work and on my eyes when I do this. But, one thing I noticed is, if I get it in my eye, it won’t sting, but my vision in that eye will be blurry for about 5 minutes. That is one reason I don’t use this secret everyday.

-Vasalean/ Petroleum Jelly- I have heard some people have reactions to this near their eyes, but I have not heard of any incidents personally, I swear by this product. I think it is something everyone should have in their house. I like to use it to clean off suborn waterproof mascara and condition my eyelashes. I swear they look better after using it while I sleep, I see a difference after a few nights. It’s so good for anything dry. I use it on my lips, eyelids, elbows, anything. I also like when I mess up my eyeliner and I can use it to easily clean up, instead of wasting a whole makeup wipe.

-Clean and Clear Spot Treatment- If a pimple has turned to a white head, I put this on, and it works great. You can feel the burn and see the difference. They even have on the tube 100% of people see a difference, is there more to say? It is a great little miracle worker.

-Wash Pad- The pink thing is great, you get three for a dollar at the dollar tree, they come in different colors. One side is a soft terry cloth while the other side (Shown) is great for exfoliating. I feel like it helps me stay less messy by controlling the soap.

-Any Face Cream- I like to use these face creams because they don’t look oily on the skin like normal lotion, but they deeply moisturize, both things I greatly appreciate. It’s nothing fancy so sensitive skin can just soak it in and love it.

-HONEYYYYY-  I love this stuff! I actually won’t eat it (my Bulgarian coworkers have tried), unless I have a sore thought, it works wonders. Honey is natural and an antioxidant, so I find it works like a miracle in the shower on my face. When I use honey after a few uses I see a difference. I swear my skin just loves it, a lot of my skin’s impurities seem to disappear! This is my favorite!

-Coconut Oil- I forgot to picture it, but mine is ugly any way. I keep it in the shower and use it as a shaving gel. Because it make my legs oily and slippery I swear they feel hairless for longer. Also it’s a great feeling when your legs feel like BUTTER!

May Favorites

As June is here and May is gone, I bring to you my favorite products from May!

With summer coming up, exams and finishing up what is happening in each class leaves you with less time, One way I like to save some time is with Dry shampoo. This one is the batiste- Hint of Color in dark deep brown. I like it because in the morning I don’t have to be so worried about making sure their is no white powder in my hair, unlike most other dry shampoos. It can be found at Walmart, Target, Marshall’s and many other places.


Another product I have been loving this month is the Maybelline Brow Drama in soft brown. It holds my eyebrows all day and adds a hint of color without being over bearing. And again it is fast and simple.


For my nails I have fallen in love with OPI. Their nail polishes just seem to stay on so well even without a top or bottom coat. It amazes me every time how long I can go with out redoing my nails because how well OPI works. I have been using Dulce de Leche for a nude-ish warm tone pink. I bought this one at Ulta. The other color is by OPI, is part of their Nicole line, and came in a two pack at Marshall’s. It is a very pretty toned down lilac, called Lilac the Door. Both of these nail polishes are great muted spring colors.

With the weather warming up it’s hard not to sweat a little bit at least. And who doesn’t want to smell tropical, summery, and good instead of sweaty and gross? So my favorite combat to sweat is gel deodorant in a fun scent. In honor of summer I choose a coconut. The gel is my favorite because I like black and normal deodorant gets all over black cloths, and I simply feel refreshed and that it works a bit better. I have been using Secret’s sent expressions in coconut splash, in gel form.


And last for this month is two of NYX’s jumbo eye pencils. I have been loving the colors French Fries and Sparkle Nude. When I need to get ready fast and want to look fancier I use French Fries, it is just a dark brown basically, and I color my eyelid and blend out for a darker smokey look. It’s super easy and super quick. The other color is great for everyday, when you want quick and simple. It has a bit of sparkle and is a warm champing color with a hint of gold.
