The Perfect Facial Sprays For A Pandemic Panicked World

Derma-E for the win with these Skin Beneficial Mood Enhancing Sprays! And with all the craziness going on in the world thanks to COVID-19, there’s never been a better time to turn to skincare products with aromatherapy included.

These sprays come in three different scents:

  1. Uplift: This one is my favorite. This one has Eleuthero & Artic Root, citrus waters, coconut essence and witch hazel and has almost a cinnamon-esque scent. It immediately uplifts my mood.
  2. Calm: This one is probably the most beneficial in a coronavirus world. With waves of emotion from everything going on in the world, I turn to this one to help calm my nerves.
  3. Create: This one may say create, but it also helps calm my nerves (probably thanks to the spearmint). And the calmer we are, the more likely we are to be able to create new ideas and things.

The best thing about all of these sprays? They are so refreshing on the skin! You should totally check them out at https://dermae.com/search?q=mood+mist

*Note: I received these products as a gift, but all opinions are my own.

Bye Bye Dull Skin (Thanks To Derma-E)

Bye Bye Dull Skin (Thanks To Derma-E)

Is anyone else over this dry winter weather yet? I don’t know about you, but it wreaks havoc on my skin. That’s why I was so excited that Derma-E sent me these products to try. With ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid or Vitamin C they were sure to help out my dryer, dull winter skin, right? Find out below:

Hydrating Day Cream

With ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea, Vitamin C and Aloe, it’s no wonder I’m a fan of this moisturizer. It goes on smooth, leaves my skin feeling moisturized and leaves a matte finish. Perfect for both my makeup free days and under makeup.

Ultra Hydrating Alkaline Gel Booster

Need that extra boost of hydration? This gel will help you do just that. While I am not a huge fan of liquid gel textures on my skin, this sure does help give the skin that extra “boost” of hydration. If you are suffering from really dry skin or have dry patches, apply this on the area and you will notice your skin feeling moisturized again without that oily feeling.

Vitamin C Bright Eyes Hydro Gel Patches

Hello Bright Eyes! I love a good eye mask, especially one that has immediate results. And these Eye Gels do the trick. Thanks to the combination of Allantoin (smooth eyes here we come), Caffeine (bye bye puffiness) and Vitamins C & B3 (the day’s looking brighter), these eye masks immediately left my under-eye area looking brighter and ready to take on the day!

The Verdict:

You should totally check out these Derma-E products.

Best Of Beauty 2019

Over the past year, I have tried a lot of great (and not so great) beauty products. With that said, I decided the best way to close out 2019 and the decade was to reveal my Fav Finds from the past year. Check them out below!

Best Anti-Aging Product: Dr. Brandt’s Needles No More Expression Line Smoother – https://shopstyle.it/l/bcdzp

This is my fav find of 2019! I seriously call it Botox in a bottle. It uses Peptides to relax the muscles underneath the skin, essentially numbing them. I use this on my forehead and I started noticing a difference after the first day of using it. Now I can’t live without it.

Best Toner: Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic – https://shopstyle.it/l/bcdBc

I’ll admit I was skeptical about this toner… until I tried it! It helped even out my skin tone, get rid of breakouts and left my skin glowing.

Best Daytime Eye Cream: Robin McGraw Revelation’s Dot Your Eyes – https://www.robinmcgrawrevelation.com/collections/treatments/products/dot-your-eyes-1

This eye cream uses power peptides to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. A great eye cream for the daytime.

Best Nighttime Eye Cream: Kate Somerville Line Release – https://shopstyle.it/l/bcdEt

I love this eye cream for night time. It does a great job of moisturizing the undereye area and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Best Hair Vitamins: Hum Nutrition Hair Sweet Hair http://www.humnutrition.com Code: 1B54BB for $10 Off

Who knew hair vitamins could make such a huge difference? Well, let me tell you, they can and do. I have been loving these Hum Nutrition Hair Sweet Hair vitamins. Not only do they taste like strawberry candy (I seriously look forward to taking these everyday!), they work. Ever since having kids, my hair started thinning and falling out, thus, why you always saw me with my hair up in photos. I started taking these and after a couple months, my hair stopped falling out and growing in super healthy. Now I wear my hair down all the time!

Best Anti-Aging Moisturizer: Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair – https://shopstyle.it/l/bceCl

Looking for a great anti-aging moisturizer that not only makes your skin look more youthful but also doesn’t make you break out? Check out Kate Somerville’s Deep Tissue Repair. It has quickly become my fav nighttime moisturizer.

Best Acne Product: Mario Badescu Drying Lotion – https://shopstyle.it/l/bceBt

Looking for a acne product that shortens the lifespan of those pesky breakouts? Check out this Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. Super easy to use and helps dry out those breakouts in no time. Just put a Q-Tip in the bottle (DO NOT SHAKE FIRST), and apply this to your breakouts before bed and wash it off in the morning.

Best Natural Deodorant: Kopari Deodorant – https://shopstyle.it/l/bceCv

The switch to Natural Deodorant was a struggle this year. Most of them do not work, and left me smelling so gross (seriously… even the kids commented on how bad I stunk 🤢), that was until I tried Kopari’s Coconut Oil Deodorant. And let me tell you… It is amazing! It works even better than those non-natural deodorants I’ve tried. Check it out!

Best Dry Shampoo: DryBar’s Detox Dry Shampoo – https://shopstyle.it/l/bceBC

Finding a good Dry Shampoo can be rough, because let’s be honest… Most of them just don’t work. But that is not the case for DryBar’s Detox Dry Shampoo. As soon as I tried it, I quickly fell in love. I have been able to get up-to three days out of my hair with this baby… And I used to be lucky if I could even get to day two hair!

Best Face Mask: Cellcosmet CellRadiance Mask – https://shopstyle.it/l/bcdCn

By now, most of you know I love my Face Masks, and I have tried a lot of great (and not so great) masks this past year. But alas, there can only be one Best. And that would be this Cellcosmet CellRadiance Mask. The nanostructure of the actual mask helps it adhere perfectly for the skin. But most importantly, it showed great immediate results. My skin literally looked and felt tighter, hydrated and radiant.

Best Setting Spray: Urban Decay All Nighter – https://shopstyle.it/l/bceBK

I finally made the move from MAC’s setting spray to this Urban Decay All Nighter because it is amazing! My makeup stays in place until I’m ready to take it off. Now that’s a win in my book.

Best Skincare Subscription: Beauteque – https://www.beautequemonthly.com Code: TotalTash25 for 25% Off

If you love K-beauty products, than you will love Beauteque’s monthly Beauty Box and Mask Maven subscription options. I have found so many great products this way.

The Glow Of A Mud Mask

Happy Face Mask Friday! So I’ve been using Pixi Beauty’s Glow collection for several weeks now and decided to stick with the glowing theme and try their Glow Mud Mask. Full of ingredients that detoxify and brighten the skin, this mask sounded like it would work great.

The ingredients:

  • Kaolin Clay: This ingredient is excellent for detoxifying the skin. It’s known for drawing out excess oil and doesn’t dry out the skin. Plus, it’s safe for sensitive skin.
  • Sea Salt: Sea Salt cleanses the pores and can fight acne causing bacteria.
  • Ginseng: Ginseng is a great anti-aging ingredient that brightens and tones the skin.
  • Aloe: This anti-inflammatory ingredient helps retain moisture, fight acne and soothe the skin.

The Verdict: I always love a good mud mask, and this Glow Mud Mask is another winning skin treat from Pixi Beauty. My skin looked and felt cleaner, smoother and glowing. Plus, it wasn’t dried out. You should totally check it out!

A Gold Of A Glow… Mask

Happy Face Mask Friday! This week I decided to add some glow (and gold!) to my skincare routine with Oh K!’s Glowing Skin Gold Foil Sheet Mask. This K Beauty mask fights the sings of aging and acne while soothing the skin and leaving a healthy glow. But why? Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients:

  • Gold – Gold is a great skincare ingredient known for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin elasticity and leaving the skin glowing.
  • Apple – Packed with Vitamin C, this ingredient prevents premature agin, leaves the skin glowing and treats acne and dark spots.
  • Cherry – Did you know that Cherry is known for treating acne and rosacea? It also fights free radicals.
  • Chamomilla Flower – This ingredient is great for soothing the skin.

The Verdict: I love this mask! It really left my skin soothed and brighter. Plus, it even reduced the naturally red undertones to my skin. I will definitely be making this mask a part of my regular routine.

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.

If you want to try this Yeouth Skincare serum (or any other Yeouth product), use code SOCIAL20 for 20% off at https://yeouth.com/products/retinol-2-5-serum-with-hyaluronic-acid-vitamin-e-and-aloe-vera

A Tea Tree Of A Mask


Who else is glad it’s Friday?! I know I am, and that means it’s time for another Face Mask Friday. Woohoo!

A little over a week ago, I received 16 different K Beauty face masks from Cos W Cosmetics, and I decided to try the Tea Tree one first. Tea Tree Oil is such a great ingredient for skin. It has the ability to soothe sensitive skin, calm redness, reduce inflammation, clear up breakouts and so much more.

The Verdict: With the scent of tea tree oil (it kind of smelled like a spa!), this face mask felt soothing to the skin from the moment is was applied. And the Tencel Cupro Fabric (it’s thinner and more absorbent than cotton) this mask is made out of almost magnetically sticks to the skin and stays in place. Afterwards, my skin felt refreshed and in the following days, my breakouts from a derma roller experience (we’ll go into that later) started to go away. You should totally check out this affordable face mask (it comes in the pack of 16 for only $9.99).
