My Daily Skin Care Step Routine

I always been obsessed with my skin. So there's no other way for me than to invest I good product to take care of my skin. At the end of the day is the only one I get to have so why not take care of it.

Here's a list in the exact order that I use them! I use many different products all the time. I will post here my go to products so you can have an idea of what I use but my routine is always the same.

Cleanser - I wash with half a pump of this then pat my face dry.

Face Moisturizer - I put two pumps of this all over my face and neck.

CC+ - I use a little on my red spots on my face.

Eyebrow pencil - I lightly line the bottom of my eyebrows with this pencil then brush and shape them. I wear the shade dark brown.

With this routine I can leave the house only wearing the CC + and of course my eyebrows done. Now I only wear more makeup if I want to get dolled up, not out of necessity!

Night Time Facial Care:

Cleanser - I wash with half a pump of this then pat my face dry.

Eye serum - I split a pea size of this serum on both eyes, patting it lightly under and around my eyes.

Face Serum - I apply all over my face and neck in an upward motion

I use deep cleansing mask once a week.

True Lipids Skin Care by Cheryl Lee MD

I am always looking for new beauty products. It is always good to change products every couple of months. Why is it always good to change the products into your skin care routine? Well because life changes, its not always the same. You got cyclical changes, you got environmental changes, and you also got emotional changes that can impact the way your skin looks. This formula was designed by a dermatologist and is a good choice for those who have issues such as eczema, extremely dry skin or dehydrated skin.

The lip balm and skin lotion applies smooth on the skin. The lip balm  has a creamy feel but it is not thick at all. Both products has absolutely no scent whatsoever. The lotion moisturize my skin and leaves it hydrated with out being heavy and looking shiny. I recommend 100% percent to everyone sensitive skin or not. It's that good! Please visit the website for more products. You will not be disappointed.

How to Gently Remove Your Makeup

I have mentioned many times about the importance of removing makeup before you head to bed to keep your skin looking young. From liner to mascara and even eye shadow, getting it all off is essential to keeping your eyes healthy and free from infection. If you’re scrubbing off to the point of losing lashes, it’s time to take a more gentle approach to your routine. The skin around the eyes is very fragile and you will create wrinkles. We all know we do not need that look! We all have those nights when removing makeup before bed sounds like the world’s biggest chore, but it’s a must. If this is all new to you then I suggest makeup wipes. After all it is better then nothing at all. My favorite gentle wipes are Motive Wipes

For waterproof makeup - an oil-based remover is best. But being gentle on your lids is important too. Close your eyes and use fingertips or cotton pads can be used too.  Also a water-based facial cleanser will typically get the job done just fine. Here is my favorite makeup remover

Feel free to share your favorites products below. Thank you for reading.

Your Ticket To a Full Head Of Volumized Hair

Are you frustrated of sacrificing touchable soft hair for volume?  Guess what? Now you don't have to! Say hello to my little friend, Thickheaded Voluminizing collection. It's going to reverse your hair care routine and totally change your game. How often can we really point to a product and say yes, this thing genuinely changed my life in a profound way? If profound is the ability to go a day or two without washing your hair, then for me Thickheaded Voluminizing is profound. Over the years I’ve tried an endless string of shampoos but nothing like this.
I usually like to finish my look with the Tidal Wave Volumizing Sea Salt  spray a bit of texture spray into my hair after I’ve curled it. That helps soften and blend the curls a bit, and keeps them from looking too perfect. I really like the look of loose, undone hair so texturizers are my best friend.

To check out their website for these products and other amazing ones please click here and feel free to ask any questions.

Thickheaded Volumizing Conditioner

Oh and this stuff! Thickheaded Voluminous Conditioner is lovely, too. It’s very light but moisturizing. Go ahead and try it. I promise you will love it. It makes nourishing your hair a breeze. Infused with Keratin, the thickheaded volumizing conditioner will leave your hair shiny, fuller, and healthy looking. Use with TheSalonguy's thick headed volumizing shampoo for maximum results.

Tidal Wave Volumizing Sea Salt

TheSalonGuy Tidal Wave Volumizing Sea Salt Spray is a great pre-styling product because it provides extra volume and thicker hair. Especially men with thinning hair can benefit from this spray prior using a good wax or clay for example. The natural volume also helps your hair to stay moisturized and does not dry out. This product does not contain any parabens or sodium chloride. The Tidal Spray also protects against harmful UV light. Last but not least besides of this product doing these amazing things, I have to mention the smell. I was mesmerized but this scent. I have never smelled a product like this one. It is so unique. I had to take several whiffs and it took me to another world. It smelled like waves rushing over the sand from the sea. The best of all for me it smelled clean. I am one of those who enjoy good smelling products. After all I want to smell good everywhere I whip my hair!
How to use:
Use the Tidal Wave Volumizing Spray into towel dried hair. Next, blow-dry your hair when you are looking for maximum volume. You can also air-dry your hair when you want a natural look.

Plush Smoothing Serum by TheSalonGuy

  I want to share one of the most important steps of my hair-care routine. I believe that serums are essential for all types of hair. There are so many different formulas from silicone-based, to alcohol free, natural, curl enhancing, etc… All formulas promise to deliver a mega shine on the driest, of dullest hair, but do they all? I think we all know the answer.
  I tend to apply my go-to serums every time I do my hair. My new go-to serum is the Plush Smoothing Serum by TheSalonGuy. For best results, use before you are about to perform a blow out. For someone like me with curly hair, I was surprised to see that my hair came out silky straight. The pictures below show only a blow-dry, without a flat iron. I am so happy because I no longer need the heat from my high-powered iron. The results are amazing. I have never been so happy with my hair. It is also a heat protectant! How amazing is that!

 No Alcohol, Parabens, or Sodium Chloride. It's a thermal Protectant.

Apply sparingly distributing evenly into towel dried hair. Proceed to blow dry for straight looks. Let naturally dry for free looks. May reapply after finished style for more shine and separation.

Visit the link below to grab your own bottle. You will not be disappointed.

Trim Fit Tea Belly Fat Burner by Glaiza

There comes a time in every 30 something year old’s life where you just gotta really say "I need to start watching what I’m eating”. I always wanted to try a detox but I had no idea where to start or what to do.

So I got something called Trim Fit Tea and I loved it for the reasons below:
  1.  you just have to drink it ONCE a day
  2.  it soothes and cleanses your colon
  3. it says it’s a fat burner and I strongly agree. I mean besides that it cleanses you, I’ve lost 5 lbs since drinking this a week ago.

 I hope you enjoyed this post and please check them out for more information at

How To Wear Blue Lipstick

Lip color is back in a big way, but deciding when to wear it can be tricky—not to mention the challenge of choosing a color!
Always keep the eyes natural without adding the eye wing. Use some nice lashes and just add color to your lips. Relax! It is just color and you can wipe it off if you don't like it.

Glam Look by Motives Cosmetics

I love this look I cam up with. I consider this a daytime look. You can tone down the red bold lips to a nude color and it would work as well.
All using Motives and Vegas Nay lashes!

Janet Collection Clip-Ins Extensions

I want to review these hair extensions from Janet Collection I love the color and the hair. It is a good quality hair extensions. They are extremely lighter than my hair so I mixed them in a few and it gave me a highlight effect which I love. They come in 8 piece box but more suitable for thinner hair. I would have needed more boxes for my whole head. Please visit their Instagram @janetcollection to check out their inventory.
Thank You

Chin UP Review


I enjoy trying new products and writing about them, the feedback has been great with regards to my posts. Many of my readers enjoy reading them and find them useful, so it is a win-win for me. Thank You again!

My Review:

I lost about 1cm of fat on my chin after 30minutes. The skin on my chin felt a lot firmer and tighter once I took off the band and mask. My chin felt and looked well moisturized due to the mask it came with. The slimming mask and band can be used on all skin types.

I felt a warm, tingling sensation while I had the band on. I found it a little hard getting the band across my head maybe because I have a big head. HA! The results last a couple of days and needs to be repeated every other day for a week to achieve better results. You will love it! Here is a you tube link and their website so you can check it out!

Balayage by Gisell DeJesus

When your #bayalage #ombre has a well #blendedtransition from top to bottom. It's subtle transition but complete total change! ✨✨✨

ACEVIVI Dead Sea Mud Mask

I found an amazing face mask, Dead Sea Mud Mask on that has amazing organic & all natural ingredients!

Ingredients: All natural and organic products: pureed sea mud, organic Shea butter, organic sunflower oil, organic aloe vera juice, organic vegetable glycerin, organic jojoba oil, hickory bark extract, organic calendula oil, eucalyptus oil, filtered water, xanthan gum.

How to use:
  1.  I applied a thin layer evenly on all of my face. I didn't have to add too much to my face, so don't overdo it! You really don't need that much to start.
  2. I left the face mask on for about 20 minutes.
  3. After allowing the mask to fully absorb, I washed it off using lukewarm water. I used my fingertips to wash it off in the shower. 
During the time that is on, I could definitely feel effects of my skin tightening and the product working in my pores. It is very lightweight on your skin. It also dries very quickly.

After drying my face, I noticed how hydrated, tight and soft my skin was. Even the following morning I touched my face and it is still feels amazing. I could not believe it.

Miracle Gel for Curly Hair

I received a sample of this Miracle Gel for Curly Hair
This proven formula locks in moisture and fights humidity on all types & textures of hair!

For perfect curls that will last for days!
My opinion:
The smell is fruity and non sticky. I did used it on a humid day last week and it held pretty good. I did need more because I have a lot of hair so I ended up pinning my hair up so I didn't enjoy the full effect. You can get it at their website.

Using this on the most humid days will control your curls and stay curled always looking fabulous.

Monat Skin & Hair Care High Quality Line

MONAT is naturally-based, gluten free, sustainable and cruelty free.   We use only the finest and safest ingredients.   MONAT products do not contain Parabens, Sulfates, DEA/MEA, Phthalates, PEG, Harsh Salt Systems, Silicones, Harmful colors, or Harmful fragrances.  Our Treatment Systems provide powerful, clinical results that address the effects of the environment, chemicals, product overuse and — most importantly — hair thinning, hair loss and aging.

**I only received  small samples, not actual bottle sizes of these products and my opinion is my honest opinion** so I tried it once. 

I tried the RENEW shampoo. I instantly loved the scent, but I was really impressed with the rich, creamy lather. It felt very luxurious and rinsed very clean. What I liked was that after I rinsed, my hair didn't feel straw-like as it typically does after shampooing and before conditioning. It felt clean and smooth and moisturized.

Apprehensively, upon exit of the shower and gently towel blotting my hair, I applied a dime to nickel size amount of the leave-in conditioner you see here:
It instantly absorbed into my hair, it left my hair with so much volume and body.

This is a prime example of high-quality products doing exactly what they say they will.

Rejuvenique Intensive Oil
I love how this oil just sinks into the skin. I have used it on my face for my dry skin and on my hair too. My hair is damaged from coloring so it does need some love. It can also be used after shampooing as a conditioning treatment. Apply to damp hair, then place a towel over hair. Leave on for 30 minutes. Shampoo and rinse. Hair will be shiny and soft. Style as usual. Use as an anti-frizz treatment too, just apply a small amount to damp hair and work throughout hair. Style as usual. For skin, apply on skin after cleansing and let sink in prior to moisturizer. Can also be used on any area of skin that need extra moisture, such as elbows, knees or feet. 

Otherwise, I adore it. I used it twice and I look forward to seeing how it works long-term! I am growing my hair out, and I think this will help so much in keeping it manageable so I don't wind up wacking cutting it off.

The price is definitely expensive for someone on a budget. However, if you can afford it, or are looking for a good splurge, I would highly recommend giving it a try!

What are your favorite hair products? Let me know!

How it works:

    •Delivers significant shine, strength and manageability

Abyssinian: The Key ingredient in Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive. From the crambe abyssinica plant native to central Africa, it’s a rare and unique combination of fatty acids prized for their ability to do everything from mimic the effects of silicon for unbeatable shine; lubricate the hair deep into the follicle; and protect and coat each strand.

Baobab: The renowned baobab trees have grown for centuries in the arid climates of India and Africa, and its exotic oil from the tree’s seeds are rich in antioxidant-rich palmitic acid and Vitamin F.

Buriti: The fruit of Africa’s Moriche palm – known as the Tree of Life – is one of the world’s richest sources of beta-carotene, which moisturizes and nourishes.

Camelia: Also known as tea-seed oil, it’s ultra-hydrating oil responsibly harvested from China that cleans the scalp and pampered dry stands thanks to its abundance of Vitamin E and polyphenols.

Carrot Seed: Specially sourced from the mountains of Switzerland, it’s rich in Vitamin A to condition the scalp, plus Alpha Linolenic Acid for anti-inflammatory protection.

Monoi: Selectively sourced from the warm tropics of Tahiti, it’s a restorative oil rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids to heal damage and promote growth from the root.

Meadowfoam: This oil is sourced right from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Named for its flowers’ resemblance to white foam on the ocean, meadowfoam oil is another outstanding source of Omega 9 fatty acids for shine and sheen.

Moringa: Ancient Egyptians prized Moringa Oil for its nourishing properties, thanks to antioxidants and Vitamin E, which help combat skin fatigue, plus clean and purify the scalp.
