Beauty: Four Products I loved in October

As a blogger I get to try a lot of beauty products. Some which I love and others which not so much… Here I want to share products that have worked for me in an effort to help you learn what’s out there and could possibly work for you too. Last month, I tried a few products and today I’m sharing a round up of my favorites.

CHI Hair for Curls

Believe it or not, my hair is as curly as they come! The issue is that I have never learned to care for it. This means that I almost always opt for blow drying and straightening it. But the more I learn about it and the more I find products that are made for my curls, the more I wear my hair natural. It happens mostly off camera but I’m happy to be doing it. These Chi Haircare products were made just for hair like mine and I loved trying them all.

Blow Pro Hair Tools

Because I mostly style my hair straight (or in waves), the process included air drying my hair and then using a straightener to smooth it. Lately, I’ve been using the Blow Pro dryer which dries my hair pretty quickly and the spray which helps leave it smooth.

Hair Products for the Little Ones

This is not a glamorous confession but my oldest and I got lice a few years ago. It was a battle that lasted a few months and since, I’ve been super proactive in her and her sister’s haircare. I feel that especially because they’re in school they’re more prone to be exposed to these. So when giving the opportunity to try out Fairy Tales Haircare I said YES without hesitation.

Winter Skincare by Neutrogena®

Neutrogena® is truly one of my favorite brands. I have been loyal to it since I was a teen. And have loved seen its evolution. I recently tried the new Hydro Boost Products and loved it. I totally recommend it now that the seasons are changing. If you want to read more about it, check out my last post on this trio that I so loved.

How to Transition a Skincare Routine to Fall and Winter with Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Products

This post has been sponsored by Neutrogena®. All thoughts and opinions are my

How often do you change your skincare routine? In my case, as the season changes, so does my skincare routine. Fall and winter are usually so tough on my skin that I look for products with a hydrating power. While searching for new products to incorporate into my fall and winter skincare regimen this year, I decided to give the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost products a try. I have relied on Neutrogena® for years and have shared many of my favorites with you before because it’s a brand that I trust and that fits right into my lifestyle.

I picked up three products from the Hydro Boost line. The Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Exfoliating Facial Cleanser has exfoliating power that is effective but also super gentle on the skin. Being soap-free, oil-free, paraben-free, and non-comedogenic means I can recommend it to others without a question. The second product I tried is the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Vitamin E & Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I have been using this duo daily and noticed how my skin has improved already; it feels hydrated and smooth. I was excited to see that the Hydro Boost Product line includes a Hydrating Lip Shine collection and decided to take home the Ballet Pink shade. It’s the perfect touch of pink and shine for everyday wear. All while helping my lips stay hydrated and smooth.

It’s no secret that I love Neutrogena® because its effective, uncomplicated, and affordable beauty. And these Hydro Boost products are a must-have for fall and winter skincare! If you’re looking to enhance your fall and winter skincare routine—whether it’s a moisturizer or cleanser—make sure to look for Neutrogena® products wherever you shop.

Especially now because the Neutrogena® Bundles Rewards Program means you get a $10 rewards Visa when you spend $30 or more (excluding tax) on participating Neutrogena® products in one transaction between 11/01/2019 – 11/30/2019.

Four Beauty Products I loved in July

I skipped June’s favorite Beauty Products but I had to share a few from last month. I’m sure you saw most of these on Instagram but I wanted to expand a bit on each here on the blog too. 🙂

Givenchy Lipstick

This deep red shade is my go-to these days. I love the formula because it lasts long and it’s gentle on the lips. It’s available at Sephora.

Clinique Moisture Surge Eye 96-Hour Hydro Filler Concentrate

This Moisturizer has been helping heal my mama eyes. It feels great on the skin and is my go-to when my eye area needs a boost. I love that it’s part of a brand I already use as part of my skincare routine.

Beauty: Four Products I Tried in May

Hi there, I know we are well into June but I wanted to share the four products that I tried in May in case you missed it on my Instagram. 🙂

I have said it before, I’m not one for wearing a full face of make up on a daily basis. But every now and then, I make an exception. Last month, I got to try the new Believe Beauty line from Dollar General. And I have to say that I was impressed by the beautiful packaging, affordable price point (all are under $5) and product variety. I love lip color and would say the Lip Gloss in Mimosa which comes in six shades, was my favorite!


Another lip color that I tried and loved was the Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick. I tried four different shades and loved them ALL. From the lightest pink to the deepest red, these have been on rotation all month long. What I loved about these is that they each have jojoba oil which helps nourish and soften lips. And I have noticed a difference since using these.

Beauty: CHI Paint Party Flat Iron

This flat iron was gifted to me for this review but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

You guys, I’m so excited to share my newest obsession in the hair care department with you! If you’ve been following for a while, you know that I love my CHI Haircare Tools. When I learned that CHI Haircare’s Spring 2019 Hair Tool Launched with 5 new options, I couldn’t wait to check it out. The one pictured here is the new CHI Paint Party 1″ Flat Iron, which has been my go-to so far this spring! Not only do I love the fun design but also the fact that it brings a gorgeous gold fanny pack, the perfect accessory for upcoming travel. Plus, it is now available at JCPenney, in stores and online. 😉

My love for CHI has a lot to do with the fact that one tool can be used to create multiple hairstyles, from silky smooth strand to curls or waves. While straightening hair, it works to reduce frizz which is a big deal in humid Houston. 😛 Other features that make me a fan are its six heat settings, automatic shut off and 11 feet cord.

Is it just me or did March fly by? I seriously can’t believe how quickly the year is passing by. Anyways, today I wanted to share a little bit about my beauty routine and products that I used in March month. I hope to do these at least once a month, since that’s about the timeframe I take to try out products and decide if they’re keepers! 😉 I’m sharing five favorite products below:


Tired eyes are the story of my life… This means I’m always looking for products that help me in this area. This month I tried this duo; Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels and Icelandic Relief Eye Cream by skyn ICELAND. The eye gels have been the best pick my up for my under eyes.

OLAY Mists and Clay Stick Masks

While traveling last month, I took along these new favorites form Olay, Olay Fresh Reset Pink Mineral Complex Clay Mask Stick and Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence Energizing. The Mist came in handy to keep me feeling fresh before, during, and after the flight. The Clay Stick Mask was perfect for me to use during a little me time I set aside while the family was hanging out by the pool. 😉
