Christmas In July – The #NSale Top Picks!

*New Items Added*

It is that time of year… I don’t know about you, but it’s my Christmas in July… The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The time when a significant portion of the new Fall merchandise is on sale before the season. While the sale has changed a lot through the years, and if I’m being completely honest, each year seems to have less and less great options, it is still my mom and I’s annual tradition since I was 11-years-old. With that said, here are my top picks from the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

*Note – I will continue to add to this list as I find more great options.

A “Yeouthful” Ingredient – Retinol

I don’t know about you, but as each year ticks by, I continue to search for products that will help keep my skin looking “yeouthful.” Retinol is a great ingredient to do just that… And when combined with the ingredients of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and Aloe, you have Yeouth Skincare’s Retinol 2.5 Serum.

Ingredients:

  • Retinol – Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that stimulates the renewal of skin cells, therefore diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing out the skin and even preventing acne outbreaks.
  • Hyaluronic Acid – This is a miracle ingredient that hydrates the skin and stimulates cell regeneration.
  • Vitamin E – This antioxidant protects the skin from free radicals and reduces skin damage caused by UV rays. It is also commonly referred to as a “wound healer.”
  • Aloe – This ingredient is known to soothe the skin and reduce irritations and inflammations.

The Verdict: I have been using this serum for the past few weeks, and while it can take months to see the full benefits of retinol, but I have noticed my skin smoothing out.

Please note – Since this product contains retinol, my skin has been more sensitive to exfoliants and certain ingredients since I started using it. But the redness does go away after about half an hour, and the Aloe and Hyaluronic Acid help keep the skin soothed and moisturized.

Bliss’s FabuLips is Fabu-Not

Happy Skincare Sunday! Hopefully you all had a great weekend and are adjusting to the time change and lost hour of sleep. Not going to lie, Spring Forward is always a little rough for me… LOL.

So, I normally love all things Bliss. I always love their Oxygen Facials at their spas, use their Makeup Melt to remove my makeup and have a lot of success with their masks. That said, I was excited to finally try their Fabulips Sugar Scrub and Polish and had such high hopes for it. I really wanted to love it. But… to be completely honest with you… it was just ok.

The Positives:

  • With ingredients that include natural oils, vitamins and butters, this product is incredibly moisturizing.
  • It smells delish!

The Negatives:

  • With sugar granules and walnut shells, you would think this would be a great scrub… but it’s not. It barely exfoliates the lips.
  • It leaves the lips and skin around your mouth very oily.

The Verdict – I would not recommend this product. There are better options out there.

Something Old, Something New

I love collecting clothes. The beauty of clothes is what goes around comes around, so with that collection comes an abundant wardrobe that ends up being more affordable in the end. While not all of my old clothes fit thanks to two little girls and a post-baby body, I’m still lucky enough to have some items that still do the trick.

Now, I have fun shopping my closet and pairing old pieces with new items. Take this outfit for example. I just got these Wild Fable jeans for $20 at Target earlier this week and paired them with this leopard print jacket (that has been in my closet for a lot of years) and viola… I have a fresh outfit that only cost me $20 in recent years.

In addition to shopping my closet, I also tried the Laura Mercier’s metallic eyeshadows I received in my Influenster Vox Box. I love the Caviar Stick Eye Color. It goes on smoothly and even. Plus, the Magnetic Pink is so pretty on. As for the Caviar Chrome Veil Liquid Eye Color in Rose Gold Metal… The color is very pretty, but it goes on very blotchy. That said, as soon as I blended it in, it looked great, especially paired with Pixi Beauty’s Antique Rose and Metallic Rose shadows from their Eye Reflection Shadow Palette.

A Panacea For Breakouts


A few weeks ago, Panacea sent me this Daily Facial Cleanser to try. I have been using it ever since… and I kinda love it!

This creamy cleanser does a great job of cleansing your face without drying it out thanks to a perfect combination of the below ingredients:

  • Moisture Shield Complex – made up of Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Methylpropanediol, this complex leaves the skin radiant and moisturized.
  • Laminaria Japonica – this Japanese seaweed removes toxins, leaving behind glowing skin.
  • Vitamin E – this antioxidant prevents UV damage and protects the skin from free radicals.
  • Green Tea Extract – this antioxidant has anti-aging and skin soothing benefits.
  • Fig Extract – this ingredient is known to increase skin hydration and can decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne.

Ever since I started using this Panacea cleanser, I have noticed that it helps my skin keep that healthy glow while reducing the number of breakouts. Plus, a little bit of this stuff goes a long way. You’ll be happy to know that it is also Paraben-Free, Cruelty-Free and Sulfate-Free. You should totally check it out.

A “Yeouth”-ful Serum

By now, you know I’m a huge fan of serums and their ability to fight off the signs of aging, so I was excited to try Yeouth Skincare’s Vitamin C & E Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. This gel serum has the perfect ingredients to achieve that “Yeouth”-ful look:

  • Vitamin C – This antioxidant boosts collagen production, improving skins elasticity and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while preventing new ones.
  • Vitamin E – This antioxidant protects the skin from free radicals and reduces skin damage caused by UV rays. Vitamin E is also commonly known as a “wound healer.”
  • Hyaluronic Acid – the miracle ingredient that is showing up in tons of skincare products, Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the skin and stimulates cell regeneration, acting similar to retinol but without the side effects.

I have been using this serum for two weeks, and I am a fan. It has definitely helped my skin stay hydrated during these bitter cold days and has helped my skin achieve that youthful look.

A Shot Of Hydration… Mask

Processed With Darkroom

This week’s face mask may not be pretty, but it sure does give a “shot” of hydration.

With this cold winter weather (and feeling a little under the weather), my skin has been really dry so it seemed like the perfect time to try Dr. Jart+’s Shake & Shot Rubber Hydro Mask. I had been eyeing this mask for a while and love that it’s a little different. Two pouches come in this cup, and you pour both pouch contents into it and shake until you have a mask! How fun?!

This mask feels refreshingly cool when applied to the skin, and with a combination of Vitamin B5 and an “expert moist complex” it sure does deliver on the hydration. You should totally check it out.

And word to the wise… be careful when opening the pouches to pour the contents into the cup for mixing so you don’t end up with a big mess on your bathroom counter… LOL.
