Products I Don’t Use Anymore

Beauty, Lifestyle, Natural, simplicity, skincare, Uncategorized

It’s definitely one of those weeks where I’m not really sure what I want to talk about on this here blog. I’m still recovering from the party/BBQ my family and I had last weekend and I think I still have liquor brain or something. I’ve been getting my life organized as well and developing daily routines to keep everything simple for myself.

As I was writing this I came up with an idea for a blog post today. Who says you can’t get things done under pressure? I randomly thought about products that I don’t use anymore and said to myself “hey that would make a good blog post.” So here I go!

I feel like I’ve done a ton of reviews on here and I can’t honestly say that I still use each and every product that I have reviewed. A good portion of the products that I LOVED at the time didn’t last like I thought they would.

The first one the list is the Facial Radiance Pads! Ok so I technically didn’t stop using these, I just had to take a break from them. In fact, I took a break from most of the products containing any sort of acid. I felt like acids were causing my face to be inflamed which of course caused acne. I had to make my routine a little more gentle. At some point, I will incorporate acids back in, but I may not have to apply them as often as I was.

I know! I was obsessed with the Herbivore Lapis Oil. In fact, I’m still obsessed, but my skin isn’t. My super sensitive skin started to react negatively when I used the oil. It would cause redness and it hurt to touch my skin, but only in certain spots like my chin or my cheeks. I tried to incorporate it back into my routine, but the same thing would happen. However, it did not go to waste, because my mom has it at the moment.

I was really excited to use this trio since I adore Josie Maran’s argan oil. What had happened was, the cleansing oil broke me out SO bad. Oddly enough, argan oil is a non- comedogenic oil so there must have been something else that irritated my skin. The sunscreen and the oil didn’t break me out though.

As much as I liked the Leahlani Skincare line, I just couldn’t see myself repurchasing the Honey Love or Champagne Serum again. The products specifically seemed to be more for dry skin, not sensitive combo skin. The Mermaid Sea mask will always be on my repurchasing list though!

I’m not completely sure if ever reviewed this Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser  but I’m sure I’ve mentioned it. This did a great job at brightening my skin, but it never really kept the acne to a minimal. Having glowy acne is a different approach. I may repurchase once I for real get the pimples under absolute control.

So, I guess this was a “where are they now?” type of post today. Also, these all ended up being skin care products…I guess those are the only items I actually buy. Hopefully Thursday I will have some actual material even though this wasn’t too bad! Thanks for reading.

My Weekend Shenanigans

Decorating, Fashion, Lifestyle, simplicity, skincare

Okay, so my post didn’t go up on Friday…or Saturday….or Sunday. I know I’m such a bad blogger and I need to redeem myself somehow. I guess I should tell you all how I got so sidetracked and ended up having three long days in a row.

Also, I forgot to mention in my last blog post that I made it to 100 followers on here!! I never expected anyone to actually read this blog, but am so glad and grateful that people do! I would love to do some type of a giveaway sometime soon, but I would need to work out those logistics first. So thanks for following and reading my blog you guys, I really appreciate it! Now back to the post!

Friday I was out with my parents all day. I was already a bit under the weather because I am a girl and you know how that goes…ahem. My plan was to stay in bed and watch YouTube videos all day, but that wouldn’t have been very productive. So instead I began editing a video at a coffee shop somewhere in D.C. After that, my mom and I went to Sephora and there I got my hands on the Josie Maran Argan Skincare Ritual Set. So far, I really like it! Once we got home, we crashed.

Saturday was my day to stay home and just chill. I cleaned my entire room and bathroom. I moved some furniture around and did some more video editing so that I could upload. I guess that’s my idea of chilling. My vanity is now by my window so that I have natural lighting when I do my makeup. I also filmed another video speaking on my cystic acne, which should be up today or tomorrow. I tried to get a blog post up about leggings, in fact, being pants but I got really sidetracked. Maybe that’ll be up later this week as well.

Sunday is the day all of my cleaning paid off. I moved two of my Ikea PAX closets out of my room. I wasn’t a big fan of the shoe racks that accompanied the PAX, so I decided to create a different kind of shoe closet. Once the two closets were out of my room, I put up two LACK shelves. The shelves gave me the blues because they don’t come with the screws that you need to anchor to the wall. However, the shelves made it up on the wall and the space looks amazing to me. Now I just need to get some better shoes!

So that’s what kept me away from my blog this weekend. I know I still could have gotten something up, but my mind just wasn’t working correctly. I’m glad I at least got all the stuff I needed to get done and got a post up today. Thanks for reading!
