Tips for Moisturizing Oily Skin

file0001224060464

*This is a guest post If you have oily skin, you need to hydrate your skin. This can be done by moisturizing your skin without adding any further oil to your skin. The goal is to remove hallmark of oily skin, which greasy-looking skin with large pores. That unnecessary shine on your face has to be replaced with glowy skin you deserve. So, here are some tips for moisturizing oily skin: 1. Use Oil-free, Light Weight Products: Heavy, thick creams do not focus on the needs of oily skin. So, if you are using such products, switch over to light, oil-free products so that you don’t add to your greasy-looking skin. Note: Using Oil-free, light weight products, your motive is to prevent breakouts, not fight blemishes. Also, there are a few moisturizers with ingredients like talc. Such moisturizers help you in controlling unnecessary shine. However, if the moisturizer has anti-bacterial agents, it will help in controlling acne flare-ups. In case you are confused, use the trial and … [Read more...]

2014-11-15_1249

*Products were received. Opinions are my own. I am happy to say I Took The TULA Skincare 30 Days To Balanced Skin Challenge! I have lots to share with you, so please read on! When I first received my package for the TULA Skincare challenge, I was eager to open it up and see what all the hype was about. This kit came with some great skincare products and I put them to use that night. My Kit Included the following:  Purifying Face Cleanser Illuminating Face Serum Revitalizing Eye Cream Hydrating Day and Night Cream I think, the only thing I did not care for was the scent of these products. Not that it was overpowering with its scent, the scent was not too strong, I just did not care for the scent. But, every one else who I have talked to loved the scent, so go figure, I am weird! Other than that, this skin care line has slowly become one of my most favorite skincare lines that I have used. That REALLY says a lot, coming from me, considering how many skincare … [Read more...]

*Product received. Opinions are my own. This post includes my affiliate links. I recently was sent a really cute gift set from Old Factory Candles. The set arrived and it was just too cute. The scents of the candles smell really good and they burn really clean, which I liked. The candles are hand poured in the USA (yay!) and each candle burns clean and even for 20 hours.

IMG_0103_lr_large

*Product received. This is a feature ONLY.  We all know that an Rx pill box can be, well, BORING. We have to look at it and open it up EVERY dang day, so why the heck not make it PRETTY to look at, right? That is what the designer, Dawn, thought too. So, she did something about it :) Leveraging her extensive marketing and branding experience, as well as her inspired take on vibrant color and playful patterns, she set out to build a brand that married her signature aesthetic with practical solutions. Two short years later, she launched Inspired by Dawn, with its debut product, the Style Rx line of originally designed pill box cases! I think these would be perfect gifts for any women who has to take medication, daily. Great for gift giving this holiday season and even better for stocking stuffers for those who would benefit from these. Buy You can purchase the Style Rx Pill box online at http://www.inspiredbydawn.com/. They retail for $34.00. Win One person … [Read more...]

Dinair Airbrush Makeup #Review

Dinair airbrush makeup

*Product received. Opinions are my own. Yes, I am a VERY busy person. With three extremely ACTIVE children and working full-time from my home, things can get a bit overwhelming at times. I have to find a balance, or I will go insane, some days! It is all about being organized (which I am NOT..) and about managing my time (which I am NO good at, sigh..). So, because I suck at those things, I have to make up (no pun intended ;)), for it in other areas of my life, to make it 'work'. One of those ways is to simplify the way I do certain things. Let's talk makeup and beauty regimes, first. Hey, I am getting older, no lie. Because of that, I sure do take care of my skin and it is not a quick process some days. I do the whole wash my face, toner, facial serum, lotion, under eye cream and etc... EVERY night. In the morning, I will only wash my face with water and then use a facial serum and under eye cream. For makeup, I will use foundation most days, mascara, eye shadow and … [Read more...]
