BLOGMAS || Day Nine || Winter Skincare Update



Hey, beauties! As I write this snow is falling and sticking to the ground here in New York! I wanted to give you a winter skincare update since today I will be pampering myself all day. Let's hop right into today's post!

When winter comes I try to make very small adjustments to my skincare routine and make sure no matter what adjustments I make, I do them one at a time to see if I react badly to any specific item. Sensitive skincare probs!
I have kept the basics of my routine the exact same and that includes washing in the morning with a mild cleanser from my local spa and washing at night with my Clarisonic and the same cleanser. After I cleanse at night I always go right into doing my acne treatment which is the same as it was. It includes me wiping my face down with my Cane + Austin Acne Retexture Pads+ and using Aczone which was prescribed to me by my dermatologist.

Recently I have wanted to add some extra things into my routine, one is a toner and one is a good mask. I decided on the Humphreys Witch Hazel as my toner which I added into my morning routine. After my skin adjusted to the witch hazel, I decided to slowly add a mask and decided to try out the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing Mask. I use this mask three times a week with apple cider vinegar as the liquid.
Both of these items have completely changed my skin. I have much less redness, my pores are noticeably smaller and my acne scars are getting lighter with every use. Overall, I could not be happier that I decided to add these items in.

PS, after Blogmas I will be doing a full-blown review of the mask!

Do not forget to add in a good moisturizer for not only your face but your body too. I find that the in shower moisturizers are the easiest for me to use so if you haven't look into those as well. Along with a heavy duty lip balm that will keep your lips nice in this chilly weather!

Have you added anything into your skincare routine lately? Have you changed up some products because of the colder weather? Let me know in the comments! πŸ’“

BLOGMAS || Day Five || Beauty Lovers Gift Guide



Calling all beauty lovers! 
Today and for the next three days, I will be sharing some gift guides that I have handpicked and put together for you to maybe make some holiday shopping a little easier! 
For those of you who love beauty or are buying for someone who loves beauty, I picked some great options for you!


Tarte's toasted eyeshadow palette is the palette that I would consider to be the palette of the year! It is fairly new to the beauty world but everyone who has tried it out loves it! Warm tones are definitely in and you cannot go wrong with this palette. 

This is for those people who live on the more luxe side of life and of course not for everyone. This is a Christian Louboutin lippie. The packaging alone just gets me and boy do I wish I could just hang these on a white Christmas tree and call it a day haha! 

Stila has been killing the makeup game this year. They keep coming out with killer products and this is one of them! For anyone who likes a shimmery eye, you must pick this up for them!

Everyone needs a little glow in there life and this is the way to do it! Glow for the gods with this glow kit from ABH, this one is my personal favorite from them!

Huda is the woman of the year when it comes to beauty brands. She has been killing it with all of the new products she has came out with this year and this is one of them! This is the 2017 Kylie Lip Kit but better!

The Clarisonic systems are not only amazing for beauty lovers but for anyone who cares about their skin. Men and women can use a Clarisonic and having one really changes your whole outlook on washing your face!

Shopping for someone who always wears a nude lip? This is the perfect gift set for them! They get ten lip pencils which can be worn as a very light wash of color or can be built up for the perfect nude!

This is a great brush set for anyone who wants makeup brushes this year. You get 12 brushes in this kit and they are great quality and will last forever and it is great for makeup newbies and makeup pros!


Hope you enjoy today's gift guide! I have another one coming your way tomorrow πŸ’–
