Accepting Change

It's been quite a while since I've posted anything on this blog. I am very sad about that, since I absolutely adore writing and sharing my ups and downs with you. But as a lot of people around me, I have been dealing with a lot of changes recently. And so I wanted to talk a bit about it in my recent video. Why don't you take a look? Maybe it will help..or at least make you realize that you are not alone. And that change can be a good thing. Even if it is difficult.

NUXE BIO BEAUTE - Vitamin-Rich Detox Mask

It's winter. And if your skin is anything like mine, it is probably screaming ''HELP'' right about now. The fact that I get the most breakouts during freezing weather surprises many of my friends, however I found out that this condition is not that uncommon. When your skin is dry and deprived of moisture, it tends to produce more oil (to try and save the situation). Unfortunately that much needed liquid has trouble reaching the surface due to dry patches that keep it pressed under the skin. In other words, (drum-roll) acne. What can we do about it? Exfoliate and well, most importantly hydrate. 

I got a gift set for Christmas that included a few Nuxe products from their new Bio-Beaute collection, and what do you know it included a face mask. This beauty is called the Vitamin-Rich Detox Mask with orange water. First, let me just say, that this product smells EXACTLY like Terry's Chocolate Orange. It will require all your willpower not to lick this off your face. :-P
The texture of the mask is an orange gel-like (a bit sticky) sheer mask. When applied, you can leave it on for about 10 minutes or so and the products turns from gel to creamy towards the end. When you wash this off I am not joking, your skin feels insanely soft (duh) BUT it feels hydrated from the inside. This is honestly what blew me away and what I believe makes this mask stand out among other competitors. It's as if you are glowing and quenched from within. It's like when you eat a nice cold slice of watermelon on a hot summer day, it's just refreshing and just plain awesome if you ask me. 

Now because this mask is quite rich and intense, it is recommended on the container to only use once a week. The advantage of this being, the product will last you quite a bit. I've already used it 6 or 7 times since I got it and as you can see, I barely made a dent in it. A little goes a long way with this one. So instead of buying a handful of tiny, unknown masks that will probably make your skin worse that it already is (trust me, I've been there) - I highly recommend you invest in this beauty who costs around 30$ but actually works and lasts you a while. Have you tried any products from this new collection? I'm very interested in giving more of them a go since I've had such a good first impression with this one.

Rimmel London Natural Bronzer : For the Bronzer Noobs

You might think I'm from another planet, but to be 100% honest..I've never used bronzers. Ever. No joke. I just never understood them and never thought myself good enough with makeup to apply it correctly. But since I've been on Instagram I become obsessed with strong definition and harsh bronzers. So I got brave and decided to give it a try. I wanted a product that would not allow be to overdo any means. Because I was afraid to look like a clown..And so after browsing the shelves for a good 20 minutes, I ended up with this Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in 027 - Sun Dance
I believe I got really lucky with this one, considering I know absolutely nothing about bronzers. This product is very light but buildable. It is physically impossible to overdo it or under do it for that matter. The powder is quite fine and blends into the skin like a dream. Mind you, it does have a bit of gold glitter but you need to be really close to see it. It is not too orange, not too brown..I think it is absolutely perfect for my skin tone and I've been wearing it every single day since I've bought it. AND, it never broke me out. This just sold the entire thing for me. In other words, if you are a bronzer noob like I am, I highly recommend this inexpensive diamond of a product. I absolutely love it!

Product I Regret Buying: Danielle Laroche

Because we all make mistakes sometimes...The Danielle Laroche Mud Cleansing Gel was actually a gift my mom got for her birthday a while ago and I just so happen to give it a go. Now I don't know her opinion on it, but I was not a fan of this product. First, the instructions kind of scared me a little bit, since you are instructed to keep the gel away from eyes and neck..Neck? If I put it on my face, why would it be more dangerous to use if for my neck? Second, the scent is very...chemical. And lastly, where is the mud aspect of this gel?
It comes out as a sticky, grey gel that does absolutely nothing in terms of cleansing and exfoliating. Your skin does feel softer after using it but a few minutes later it becomes dry and tight. So in other words, I will not be touching this thing ever again. It downright creeps me out. The chemical smell, the dirty color, the results all contribute to my thumbs down. Have you ever heard or tried any Danielle Laroche products? I'd love to hear your impression.
