DIY Lavender Face Toner


Hey everyone,

Lately I’ve been obsessed with essential oils. I love using them to make skincare and household products. So, when I found a recipe for face toner, I just had to try it. It’s so easy to make and smells amazing.

What you need?

  • 2 ounce spray bottle
  • Witch hazel without alcohol
  • Vitamin E oil
  • Lavender essential oil

In the spray bottle add 1/4 a cup of witch hazel, 2 drops vitamin E oil and 5 drops lavender essential oil.

Don’t forget to put on a pretty label (I didn’t have a pretty label 😦 ..lol ) and shake it up before each use.

1 or 2 sprays in the morning and at night.

Thank you for reading my post!!

Blogmas Day 10- Skincare Routine!!!


Hey everyone,

So, I’m gonna be honest with you, I don’t wash my face everyday and sometimes I leave my makeup on while I sleep. Since I’m getting older, I really need to start keeping up with my skincare. I don’t want to look like the walking dead by the time I’m 40..lol

Here is my skincare routine!!!

First I use the Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser to clean my face. Then I use the Pixi Glow Tonic to tone my skin. It’s also exfoliating which makes my skin glow.

I use the Pixi Rose Oil Blend to help with my skins luminosity and I love the smell lol

I end my skincare routine with L’Oreal Reviralift. This stuff is amazing, it’s anti-aging, which I need. Plus, it moisturizes like a dream..lol

There you go, that’s my skincare routine. I swear this post is not sponsored by Pixi. Lol

Top 5 Beauty Products of All Time!!!


Hey everyone,

We all have that one beauty product that we can’t live without. Whether it’s skin care, hair care or makeup there is something out there for everyone.

Here’s my top 5 beauty products of all time!! It was so hard to narrow it down to just 5.

5. L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise- $8.99

This is the most amazing mascara that I have ever used. It gives my lashes volume and length while also keeping them soft. How do they do that?!?!?

4. Garnier Micellar Cleaning Water- $6.99

I go through bottles of this like it’s water…lol. This micellar water takes off all my makeup without drying my skin out. I love it!!

3. Perfectly Posh Citrus KISS Lip balm- $5

Citrus Kiss Lip Balm

I have incredibly dry lips, it’s horrible. I used the Perfectly Posh Citrus Kiss Lip balm every morning and night. It keeps my lips hydrated and so soft. I also like that it’s all natural.

2. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Moroccan oil- $4.89

I have been using this oil forever. I always use it after I wash my hair. It makes my hair so shiny and sleek. My hair is usually frizzy, so this helps so much.

1. My all time favorite beauty product is something I’m rather new at using but I know that I will always use it and love it.

It’s LipSense!!!!

Lip products are my all time favorite beauty product in general. Then when you pair that with a long lasting formula, I’m hooked for life. I’m pretty sure I’m done with lipstick and will stick with LipSense from now on.

Check out my friend Becky’s Facebook group if you want to know more about LipSense.

My Favorite Makeup Remover


Hey everyone,

I love makeup but one thing I hate is removing all my makeup at the end of the day. So, I like to make it as fast and easy as possible.

My favorite makeup remover is Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser. This stuff has been around since 1846, so you know this is some amazing stuff.


Ponds Cold Cream contains 50% moisturizer, so it leaves your skin feeling soft.

My favorite thing about this cleanser is that you don’t have to wash it off. You just rub it all over your face and then wipe it off with a cloth. I do use a wet wash cloth to remove the cleanser but you don’t have to. 

Not only is this moisturizing and easy to use but it actually gets off all your makeup. Even the most stubborn mascara. Plus, it’s extremely affordable.

I highly recommend that everyone tries this at least once. 

Thank you for ready my post. What is your favorite way to remove your makeup?

Equate Beauty Wipe Away The Day-First Impression 


Hey everyone,

If you are like me, you like to save money. So when I heard that Walmart has a makeup remover cleansing balm that’s comparable to Clinique’s Take The Day Off cleansing balm, I just had to try it. I can’t compare it to the Clinique version since I’ve never tried it but I can let you know what I think about the Walmart version.


I have read many mixed reviews on this product. So for $5, I thought way not try it out for myself. Wipe Away The Day is a balm that melts into a oil cleanser.

I have only used it once, so this is a first impression. I used it last night to take off all my makeup and to cleanse my face. After I used Wipe Away The Day, I used a toner and moisturizer.


Here is my makeup from yesterday. I look human again because I’ve been sick..yuck..lol


Here is a picture of me this morning, I haven’t washed my face or anything. No makeup ring under my eyes.. yay!!

Pros-

  1. Took off all my makeup. I even used toner after and there was no makeup left on the cotton round.
  2. It left my skin feeling soft and smooth not oily like I thought it would.
  3. Very easy to use. Rub it on dry skin and then wipe it off with a warm washcloth.

Cons-

  1. It says it doesn’t have a smell but it does smell like plastic. Which smells horrible.
  2. It says to avoid eye area, which sucks if you want to remove your eye makeup. I did use it on my eyes and it does put a oily film on your eyes that’s annoying.

I think this is a good product so far but I only used it once and who knows how my skin will react to repeated uses. For only $5 why not try it out and see if you like it. 

Thank you for reading my post.

Skin Care Routine!!!!


Hey everyone!!!

Since I’m getting older, I’m starting to notice a difference in the color and texture of my skin. I know, it sucks so bad!!! My pores are as deep as the ocean and wrinkles as long as the sea. Wow, that was beautiful but sad..lol. 

Anyways, in the past month I’ve started a skin care routine. I’ve never been one to to actually take the time to wash all my makeup off, exfoliate, Moisturize, toner and use face masks. Man was I missing out. I’ve found that my skin care routine not only makes my skin look a million times better but it relaxes me and makes me feel good. 

Here is a no makeup selfie-

I can tell that my skin looks brighter and the texture and color is more even.

Here is what I’ve been using-


Step 1-

I use the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove all my makeup.

Step 2-

I’ve been using the Perfectly Post Complexion Perfection exfoliating face wash for about a month now and it makes my skin feel so amazing. The Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser was a gift from my parents for my birthday. So I’ve been switching these every other day. 

Step 3-

Every other day I will do a face mask. My favorite right now is the Perfectly Posh Stay Gold face mask. I got this sample of the In The Clear face mask with my Perfectly Posh order and this stuff is no joke. I’ve used it twice and my skin has never been this clean after using a face product before. I only use this once a week because it’s so intense. This will definitely be my next purchase from Perfectly Posh.

Step 4-

Now that my pores are all clean, I use the Pixi Glow Tonic. This was another birthday present from my parents. So, I just started using it but I can already tell a deference in my skin. It’s so much brighter and my complexion is more even.

Step 5-

Last but not least is moisturizing. I’ve been using the Perfectly Posh Moisturize 911 and boy does this make my skin soft. After I put this on, I always ask my husband to feel how soft my skin is, I guess that defeats the purpose of washing my face…lol

There you have it, that’s how I keep my skin looking good or I should say better. I love Perfectly Posh and no this post is not sponsored but I wouldn’t turn it down if they did want to sponsor me..lol. I love them that much. Plus, my Perfectly Posh consultant Amber is amazing. Just click her name and you can check out all the amazing products.

Just remember, your skin is a canvas and you want your canvas to be nice and smooth to lay down your amazing art work. That’s why skin care is so important to me.
