Get Glowing Skin Now!


When it comes to skincare, I have to admit that I’m a bit of an addict. I love the look of fresh, radiant, glowing skin! I’ve always believed that starting with great skin is the best canvas for your makeup. No amount of makeup can give you that fresh-face glow unless you have amazing skin to begin with!


Recently, I’ve been using Shiseido’s Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, which is a pre-treatment —kinda like a serum for your serum! It’s anti-aging and fights against damages, you apply this before your serum or moisturizer to get the best results from your products!


After applying Ultimune, I use Shiseido’s White Lucent MultiBright Night Cream all over my face, neck, and décolleté. The White Lucent line has been a favorite of mine since a decade ago when I first discovered it on my friend’s mom’s vanity. She had an impressive collection that sat very pretty on her makeup table. Since using Ultimune in combination with the MultiBright Night Cream, my skin has been more supple, radiant, and hydrated! I’ve noticed that dark spots have diminished and my skin’s texture has improved and become smoother!

Leave me a comment and let me know what are some of your holy grail skincare products for glowing skin!

Happy First of Spring!

Duster: SHOPBALY (S) | Shoes: Fashion Nova | Jeans: Fashion Nova | Top: Forever21

 It's officially the first day of spring wahoo!! That means warmer weather and hopefully more sunshine from now on! 

I went to Pike's over the weekend and picked up the prettiest bunch of cherry blossoms for only $15! One of the perks of living in Seattle is that flowers actually lasts longer than a few days. When I used to buy flowers in Vegas, they'd die within a few days due to the overbearing heat. Yay for spring and pretty blooms!

Olive

Duster: Dynamite (S) | Booties: Andrew Marc | Necklace: Jays + Jewels

 Olive's been the IT color for the past few seasons and I have a feeling it's going to continue to make debuts throughout the year. This duster is really flowy and lightweight, perfect as a coverup with leggings, some skinny jeans, or shorts when the weather gets warmer!

3 Face Oils I Can't Live Without + Giveaway


Face oils has been all the craze lately and I've officially jumped on the bandwagon to see what the big deal was. Now, I haven't tried every single face oil on the market, but I've had my fair share of samples and what I've noticed is that they tend to smell a bit fishy, kinda like a grilled salmon salad on my face. I don't know about you guys, but I prefer to smell like roses rather than lunch. 


I've come across three face oils so far that I'm currently obsessed with. The first from Goldfaden MD, an all natural dermatologist developed skin care brand that I absolutely love! I've used several of their products in the past such as the Doctor's Scrub, it's a great exfoliant even for people with sensitive skin like me. Their Hands to Heart hand cream is probably the best I've ever used, smells great, totally keeps my hands hydrated, and best of all, it doesn't leave that yucky sticky feeling. When I found out they recently came out with a face oil, the Fleuressence Native Botanical Cell Oil, needless to say, I was very excited to give it a try! I've religiously been using it nightly and trust me when I say my skin glows when I get up! Any redness is heavily reduced and my skin feels plump and hydrated.


Secondly, Wendy over at Wendyslookbook.com was too kind and gave me the Biossance Rose Face Oil, she swore by it and after using it several times, I knew why. The rose scent was obviously very attractive and soothing not only on my skin, but my nose as well. This one would be great for people with oily skin as it sinks right into your skin and you can totally skip moisturizer! Bonus: it's currently on sale!

Lastly, my Rodial Snake Booster Oil has been perfect for the eye area. I've been using this mostly around my eyes because it "works to firm and tighten skin on a long-term basis," and obviously, who doesn't need that extra firm and tightening action right? The oil is a great addition to your regular eye care regimen as it adds that extra anti-aging factor!

Let me know if you guys are fans of face oils and which ones are your favorite!
