Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I’m just popping in with a quick update to my ever evolving skin care routine.
I noticed, now that I double cleanse my skin, that I have been going through my Bioderma a lot faster than I use to. So I set out to try and minimize the amount of product I used by using something different to take off my makeup.
I tried makeup remover wipes but they irritate my skin so then I thought i would try using baby wipes to remove my makeup …. this worked better but still I wasn’t happy with the amount of waste I had …. baby wipes are not bio-degradable… so I set out to do some research ….
I came across a few videos of YouTubers that swore by the Face Halo brand. So I jumped on Amazon and purchased a pack of 3 for $30.
It’s softer than a washcloth
The direction say to wet it with warm water and use it to remove your makeup and then simply wash it with soap in warm water and hang to dry….
This has been working for me so well that I am thinking of purchases a few more.
I also wanted to show you what hubby did for me while I was sleeping yesterday…. He moved all of my sewing stuff into one of our spare rooms and created a sewing room for me!!! He is such a sweet, loving, amazing husband.
Well that’s all for now dolls. Stay safe out there and remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
a few months ago I purchased one of these to exfoliate my lips daily. I got mine off Amazon for $6 and thought this was the best thing on the planet…..
Hey doll hey!! How are you doing today? Great I hope. Well…. I come to you with a caution about exfoliating your lips daily and or being too rough on your lips!
I use one of those double sided silicone exfoliating brushes. I use to use it daily on just the small nub side …. but I had forgotten to exfoliate my lips in about 2 weeks … so I used first the bigger nib side and then I went back over my lips using the smaller nib side … I noticed I had a ton of dead skin sloughing off so I decided to rub it a bit more and I applied a bit too much pressure.
I now have a sore patch of skin on my upper lip. It hurts a heap and the only thing i can think to do is apply some neosporin and give it time to heal.
So I’m coming to you with a caution … when exfoliating your lips use only the gentlest of pressure and do not exfoliate for more than 1 minute… even if you having gotten all of the dead skin off in the first go …. leave it for the next day ….this way you don’t end up with a nasty abrasion on your lip too.
Well that’s all for now dolls …. hope all is well …. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great night/day.
I’m coming to you with an quick update on my journey to fuller brows and lashes.
As you may have read in my post about me using black castor oil to aid in the growth of my lashes and brows …. I said I would update you weekly as long as I started to see improvement.
Well…. to my surprise (I went into this a bit sceptical) I have new hair growth on both my brows…. I am not really seeing a big difference in my lashes other then the fact that my lashes are now all growing upward and uniform instead of dropping and in different directions. But I did compare them to the day 1 photos and it does appear that there is in fact growth.
For my left brow I did not have hair at the tail and there was a bald spot at the arch. I now have hair growing at the tail and for the first time in about a year and 1/2 O finally have haor growth at the arch… its not a heap of long hair but when I touch it I can feel that hair has staryed to grow… its peach fuzz right now …. but it’s growth nonetheless. For my righr brow again I did not have hair at the arch and I can actually see that hair has grown at the arch as well as in the tail section.
So, so far I am seeing something happening …. I will update you again next week.
Well that’s all dolls…. stay safe and have a great rest of you night/day.
Hey doll hey!!! Hope your night/day is going great. Just popping in to updaye my skin care routine…. I added just 2 things to my routine but wanted to tell you about it…. let’s jump into it.
A.M. Routine: Instead of just cleansing with my Bioderma and then jumping into my serums and moisturizers I now double cleanse my face and neck.
For the night time routine with the Bioderma I use 3 facial pads… 2 to get off all the makeup and the 3rd one to cleanse my face and neck and then I go in with my Clarisonic and Clinique cleanser. I use the 2 serums and the eye cream and the lip balm and then I use the night face cream.
Well that’s it dolls. I have been toying with maybe adding a few face masks into the routine… I just don’t know where to start when it comes to face masks…. I’ll have to do some research and if I do start to incorporate them into my routine I’ll update my blog with it.
Hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and are healthy. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
Hey doll hey!!! Hope your day/night is going good. I just wanted to pop in really quick to do a before post. As I explained in my last beauty haul post, I learned of a tick for fuller brows and lashes from a fellow beauty blogger. Her name is Anna Bankester. She had a YouTube post where she talked about using Jamaican Black Castor Oil in her brows and lashes to get them growing. Well the very same day I ordered a bottle of this magical stuff on Amazon for $9.99 for a 4 ounce bottle.
I thought this was a small bottle but when I applied the oil to my brows and lashes, using a disposable mascara spoolie, I figured out that 1 dip into the bottle was all I needed for both brows and all 4 sets of lashes.
Right off the bat I’d like to tell you…. this stuff stinks very much. But once it’s on your eyes and brows you don’t smell it anymore. Next this stuff is super sticky and doesn’t dry down so if you are using it at night, like I am, you may need to adjust the way you sleep, unless you don’t mind getting some of this oil o n your pillow at night.
This stuff feels weird on the lashes. It’s not super thick or anything, but you can definitely tell you have something in your lashes.
So I started this treatment today and plan to do weekly check ins to show my progress with this oil…. that is unless there really isn’t any discernible difference in appearance.
Well let’s see my starting point…. be warned …. I have taken my makeup off for the night and gone through my nightly skin care routine so I look a bit scary… ha ha…..
Well there you go. My brows are pitiful but fingers crossed I will have full luscious brows by this time next month.
Well that’s all for now dolls. Hope you have a great rest of your day/night. Please be safe. Remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
