This serum has been amazing so far! It smells great and doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily or sticky! It is great on my oily and dry skin and has really brightened it.  I am acne prone so it took a few days for my skin to adjust but it has and the serum has really improved the look of the scars on my face! So much so that sometimes I just touch up any trouble spots and go… no BB cream or foundation!

I put the serum on at night after my evening face wash routine.  I wake up in the morning to a glow on my face and it is hydrated and fresh.

I am still using this product and I plan to purchase it again once it runs out!

Threading For the WIN

I was given the opportunity to try out Wink Threading last week.

Don’t know what Threading is? Here is a blurb from the Wink website:

“For the sophisticate and the novice alike, threading has supplanted waxing as the safest, most effective eyebrow-hair-removing alternative. This precise method removes hair in a line formation to achieve an exact and angular brow – producing a look that will start drawing compliments from the moment you leave the Wink salon.

This gentle form of hair removal avoids contact with the skin and is the most hygienic process available, because there are no chemicals or tools used aside from a spool of antibacterial thread. In fact, dermatologists recommend threading for patients on topical medications because the skin is not irritated in any way by the procedure.

And – get this – it’s virtually pain free. Think of it as “tweezing with benefits.” It’s the same virtual sensation as tweezing, but the entire process is over much more quickly, as each hair is removed in clean, rapid, linear succession. No pain. Just gain!”

The environment at Wink is welcoming and clean.  The session was short [about the same amount of time as a typical wax]. Rather then painful it almost was a prickly tickle sensation but nothing that was super uncomfortable!

I love that they don’t just do a standard shape and they work with your face.  Also, they don’t do brows super thin which is fabulous although I am sure they can if you request it!

My favorite thing was the fact that my skin wasn’t bright red after the threading was over and it never turned red! Sensitive skin for the win! Pricing below is for Wink threading and it is fairly comparable to other area waxing salons.

Below is my before and after.  My apologies that the quality isn’t the best. But they were taken in different lighting! TOP is before BOTTOM is after! LOVE The shape!

They did a GREAT job and I will definitely be back! Make sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter for great deals and information!

Beauty Reviews: BB and Eye Palette

If you follow my instagram you know I got a HUGE package from Sephora.  I am going to take some time and do a product review. I have been wanting to get a new eye shadow pallet and came across Urban Decay’s Ammo Palette.  I love the different colors so I went for it.

UD

Overall, I really LOVE this pallet! It came with “Eyeshadow Primer Potion”.  I tried the eyeshadow with and without. Without the color still looks really bold and stays on HOWEVER, there is some glitter fall out when you don’t use the potion which makes for a little interesting look on your face.  It isn’t crazy but enough to bother me.  But as long as you use the potion it seems to eliminate that!

BONUS**When you order from Sephora you receive a few free samples.  One of the samples I chose was Boscia BB Cream.

BB

I have tried a few BB creams and most make me break out and don’t have good coverage.  This Boscia BB Cream is a game changer…. it covers well enough for me to go and run errands and then for date nights I just throw on powder and my blush+eye makeup+ Lip and I am good to go! It feels light even with other makeup on top AND I have worn it three days and NO breakouts!
