New From Boscia

IMG_4627.JPG

I have large pores so I always welcome a detoxifying mask to help clean and refine them. The new Charcoal Pore Pudding* by Boscia does exactly that. Made with kaolin clay and black and white charcoal, this mask penetrates all dirt from your pores leaving you with a refreshed, clean complexion.

The interesting part about this is mask that the white and black charcoal are separated in the tub but are supposed to be mixed together to form a gray, opaque layer once applied. I am really enjoying this mask! I initially expected to be like any other mud mask (drying my skin out) but it really refreshes complexion.

Perfect Lips With Estee Lauder

IMG_2367

As you guys know, I am a huge fan of lipstick. The perfect lipstick can pull an entire look together. The Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy lipsticks* are every lipstick lover’s dream. They are pigmented, moisturizing, and last for a long time.

They come in 31 different shades ($30 each, find them here) ranging from nudes to bold colors. The bullet is shaped to fit the curves of your lips, making them look sculpted. Finally, the lipsticks have a luxurious, metal casing.

These are swatches of the pink/nude/brown everyday colors. With just one swipe, they are completely opaque and have a beautiful sheen. Impulsive is probably my favorite because it is the perfect color for spring and it is great for a variety of different looks.

These are swatches of the bold colors which are great for a night out. Just like the everyday colors, the bold shades are extremely pigmented and moisturizing. Carnal is probably my favorite because it is the perfect blue-based red.

See all 31 shades here: http://www.esteelauder.com/product/631/29657/Product-Catalog/Makeup/Pure-Color-Envy/Sculpting-Lipstick

FOREO ISSA Hybrid in Mint | A6 Memobottle | Studio Gear Cosmetics True Whipped Stain Gloss in True Pebble | Shop LVX Nail Lacquer in Blush | Poweradd Pilot 2GS Portable Charger in Rose Gold


I won’t say too much about the FOREO ISSA Hybrid because I made a post comparing it to an Oral-B toothbrush, which can be found here. The FOREO ISSA Hybrid is such a luxurious toothbrush and great for sensitive and normal teeth.

The A6 Memobottle is very small, about the size of a book and it is really easy to store. I also love the fact that it comes with a black and white cap. I will have full blog posts coming up on the Studio Gear Cosmetics lippie and the LVX Nail Lacquer coming up.

Spongellé

SpongellĂ© has created a bath sponge that is infused with body wash. I love a good bath because it really helps me feel clean and refreshed. Also, I love that the body wash and the sponge are together, saving you time. The Boxed Flower – Papaya Zuzu* from SpongellĂ© is essential for a relaxing bath.

IMG_0130.jpg

Upon opening it, I could immediately smell the wonderful aroma that it produced. It has a clean yet bright smell that is simply amazing. Furthermore, after all of the body wash has been used, you can continue to use it as a regular bath sponge. Get it here for only $16.

Will you be trying out the Spongellé Boxed Flowers?

5 Ways to De-stress

IMG_1018.jpg

Stress happens to all of us, for a variety of reasons. These are just some things to try out to relax. Please keep in mind that different things work for different people because, well, we’re all different. Enjoy!

Exercise:
Exercising releases endorphins, which makes you happier. I love to go for a short run if I am having a stressful day because it really clears my head and gives me time to think about the situation. 

Eat a Healthy Snack:
Please note, this does not mean stress or binge eating. Eating a small snack such as fruit, will give you energy and make you feel clean and healthy. Strawberries are simply delicious and by far my favorite fruit. 

Talk to Someone/Rant:
This is pretty self-explanatory but often looked over. Find someone whom you trust and tell them what is stressing you and why. I love to talk with my dog because she makes me happy and doesn’t judge me (admit it, you do it too!) Talking to someone really helps let out your emotions and lift a weight off of your chest. 

Listen to Music:
Music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. A song can really help you feel better and calm down depending on how you feel. 

Write/Draw:
Doing these things really help me calm down. Try drawing a friend, your dog, or even a flower. It really does help you think about what is bothering you and helps calm you down.
