What Is In My Purse

What Is In My Purse

Hello everyone, I hope all is well! Today’s post is about what I keep in my bag. Let me just give you a heads up now, my bag is not very exciting. I really thought I was much more interesting than I am.

The bag I use is a leather Coach bag I bought in 2012 when I had my first job. I’m not a huge fan of Coach but this bag is very plan and goes with everything.

If you dig in you will find:

My wallet (Alex and Ani)

My beauty bag(Fossil) – I keep pads, tic tacs, toilet bowl covers, tide to-go pen and lotion

My key holder( Ted Baker) – I just keep my house key and an old picture keychain

Hand sanitizer and a holder- both from Bath and Body Works

Vintage Hankercheift- from the thrift store

See? Nothing to exciting. I try to keep my bag as clean as I can because it can get out of hand quickly!

Perfectly Posh Haul and Review!

Perfectly Posh Haul and Review!

Hello everyone! I hope all is well as usual. Today, is a super exciting haul/review from a company called Perfectly Posh.

A little while ago I got in contact with one of their consultants and we decided to do a collaboration! Abby was sweet enough to send me a package with products and samples to try out. I’ve tried out each product a few times to get an accurate opinion.

Before I go into detail for each one I want to talk about the company itself. All of the containers are made from recycled material, they use naturally based products as well as being cruelty free and every thing is made in the USA.

First product is the Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme in Boho Soul- (4 out of 5) $9.00
Smell- Spiced fruits, amber and Oud wood.
The hand creme is amazing it makes your hands super soft and it smells so good. Very spicy, but not overwhelming. It doesn’t leave the hand greasy or sticky which is a plus considering it is so hydrating. IMG_3136

Next product is the Lemon Wedge Caffinated Lip Balm- (5/5) $5.00
Smell- Lemon (Obviously)
Okay, let me tell you about this lip balm! I swear by it now. It has the tingly feeling, and my lips are so smooth. I don’t have the need to keep reapplying it like most lip balms. It smells so nice, and the packaging looks like a vintage cleaner. And to top it off it’s only five dollars! IMG_3137

Next product she sent me was the Crackle Spackle Detoxifying Face Mask- (5/5) $19.00
Smell- Mint and Charcoal
It smells so good! The mask itself tingles and feels so cooling. I usally can’t use new products with out breaking out the first time but this soothed my skin and my black heads were noticeabley smaller and cleaned out! I love this mask and will definitely be repurchasing it!IMG_3135

Last product is a tool! Its a face mask silicone brush. I give it a 5/5 because its shaped so perfect! It applies the mask evenly without patches.

Each product has amazing packaging… super fun and colorful.

I wanna give a huge shout out to Abby Smith for gifting me these products! I’m going to link all her information below if you want to try any of these out or anything else she sells.

My Skin Care Routine

Okay ladies and gents! Today we are going to be talking about skin care (again)… one of the most bitter-sweet topics to me. I once had beautiful clear skin (like everyone in my family) until around 15, then everything went south. In a previous post, my review of the acne treatments to be exact I mentioned I have tried a million and one things. Nothing was really working until I started this routine about a year ago! I also should mention I went to a dermatologist for a long time, and a few of the products I’m going to mention is what the Doc prescribed.

I’m a firm believer in a set routine so lets begin:

Morning Routine: (Easy Peasy)
Wash: Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask   Gets rid of all the dirt and oils
Moisturizer: Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion Makes my skin soft not greasyFacewashLotion

Night Time Routine: (this is where things get a little crazy)
Wash: Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask or Dove Sensitive bar soap.
Depending on how dirty I feel my face is… at night I use my Mia 2. I really could not live without my Clarisonic it gives me such a deep clean.
Toner: L’occitane Lotion Divine  Doesn’t dry my skin out!
Moisturize: Cetaphil Mositurizing Lotion
Lip Balm: L’occitane Soft Balm  mia 2lotion divinebalm

Makeup Remover: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.  Doesn’t leave a sticky feeling.micellar water.JPG
If I have a pimple/break out I will use my Mario Badescu Drying Lotion or my acne cover ups!mario bb
I hope you all can take something away from this! If anyone would like to know about the masks or other special treatments just ask, I’ll make a post.

Question of the day- What are your skin care routines like?
