Gurl, my skin is on freak out mode lately. I don’t have issues with acne, break outs, etc…but I do have super dry, dull skin. Maintenance is the word here. I have to keep my hands on my skin 24/7 because if I let it go things start to get super scary around these parts.
Using a rich moisturizer in the day makes my skin shiny and oily looking. As in wanna fry an egg on my face? That’s why I normally stick to richer moisturizers in the evening and a lighter one in the day.
Much to my delight I got a sample of Proactiv Solution Oil Free Moisture and I actually like it. I say actually because Proactiv is the type of brand that I think of for problem skin solutions but this one can be taken advantage by anyone.
Proactiv Oil Free Moisture is an oil free moisturizer with an SPF 15. This is fragrance free and hydrates skin quite nicely without giving it an oily, greasy look or feel. The thing I like about the formula is the lighter texture that allows my skin to breath while it hydrates. Even my dry skin can get on board with this. If your skin is oily, acne prone, or just plain sensitive you’ll love how gentle this is as well!
I liked this one alot and can see it becoming a part of my daily regime in both the winter and summer months!

Oh Winter you’re such a cruel mistress!
Between stale airplane air and a combination of cold weather versus hot weather, my skin has been put to the ultimate test and has failed miserably.
It’s dry, dull, slightly tanned thanks to the California sun penetrating my many layers of bulletproof SPF, and just generally tired looking.
My key to successfully getting it back in shape is moisture, moisture, moisture…!
100% Pure Super Fruits Night Balm to my hydrating rescue!
My Beauty Diary, not for facial sheet masks anymore!
My Beauty Diary is a Taiwanese company that put cute facial sheet masks on the map. The company started out with a range of various sheet masks and have since tripled their offerings with various formulas.
Most recently they started introducing skincare to their line up including an eye makeup remover, facial cleansers, and a scrub.
The brand most recently introduced a new range of Sleep Concentrate Gels.
Let’s take a look at one!
Props to Garnier for creating one of the first Dark Spot Correctors I’ve every seen at the local drugstore. Spot correctors have been taking the skincare world by storm lately…Clinique started the craze and it slowly trickled down to various brands from high end, to mid end, and now at your local drugstore thanks to Garnier.
This lightweight daily moisturizer is supposed to fade discolorations including dark spots, age ones, and acne marks thanks to a healthy dose of Vitamin C.
Does it work?
Let’s find out!
As you know the Balm has gone all out with a new range of skincare that’ll knock your socks off. They pretty much covered anything and everything you’d want from skincare.
Toners, eye creams, serums, moisturizers…you name it, the Balm’s Time Balm Skincare Collection has it.
I’ve been testing out a few of the products and so far I like what I see.
I’ve been dabbling with the Balm Dandelion Brightening Moisturizer and here are my thoughts!
