Feeling Beautiful in My Skin with Avya Skincare

I have to admit that after turning thirty, I have become more conscious about my skin and I’m frequently trying to find ways to better care for it. It can be a tough to find the right products for women with more melanin like myself. Having found Avya, a line that was “designed to indulge all skin tones,” per the Huff Post has made an impact on my skincare routine with the use of only two products and in a short period of time.

I have been using the Anti-aging Power Serum and the Eye Bright Cream – for the last 7 days and I already love how my skin has started feel in such a short period of time.

Eye Bright Cream

My eyes have always been an area of concern, as I feel that there is a large amount of pigmentation around them. I have religiously used the Eye Bright Cream two times each day per instructions and with each use my eyes feel energized. I particularly like that this cream has caffeine, among other products, like peony and turmeric which helps in reducing puffiness and dark circles. For a long time I blamed it the dark undertones of my eyes on genetics but now I’m excited to see how this cream continues to improve the way my eyes look.

Anti-aging Power Serum

The Anti-aging Power Serum that I have been using has a blend of turmeric and Vitamin C, just to name a few. I honestly love any product that can give me Vitamin C boost. This serum is made to increase radiance and improve discoloration.

What I like most about this skincare line is that it works regardless of skin tone. Also, that it is easy to use and doesn’t take up much time, which has made it easy to incorporate into my already established daily skincare routine. If you are looking for a product that works on all skin tones, give this one a try. Especially if you have pigmented skin like mine, because it is important to use skincare products that are made for you. Check out other products on this Avya Skincare Line here.

Hair Volume with Voloom’s Rootie

Volume! So my hair has lots of it when it’s curly… But when I straighten it, not so much! When I heard about Rootie the Rootlifter by Voloom, I was intrigued. And when I got the chance to try it, I did a little happy dance. 🙂 I mean a solution to the lack of volume in my hair? Yes, please!

So, what’s Rootie? It’s a volumizing iron! It gives hair an instant and long lasting volume. It’s the perfect tool to add a volume to hair that is otherwise flat. Especially, when you have to skip the shampoo & need to revive those luscious locks. 😉 I’m leaving you the link to Voloom here for you to check it out and order it – this would make a great christmas gift. 😉

Friday Favorite: Five Steps to Beautiful with Saranghae

I have to admit that I didn’t have much of a skincare routine in place prior to trying out Saranghae. I supposed I had gotten used to trying a combination of products, as needed. But the fact that one line offers an entire system seemed appealing. Especially, since it is only a four step routine. The sheet mask is optional and not required every night – so I save it for nights when I need some pampering.

Strong Nails by Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat

Happy Friday!! What do you have planned for the weekend? Hopefully it’s something fun. 😉 Before the week comes to an end, I wanted to share another Friday Favorite with you. This week, we’re talking nails.

I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m not like most women who get regular mani and pedis. One reason is that as a mom, my manicures hardly ever last. Another reason is that the girls and I truly enjoy painting our nails together at home.

This means that while I may not use color, I still use clear polish. I have been using several cheap brands which didn’t offer much than a clear coat. That was until I came across Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat. I have been using it for about a month now and I have to say that I am very happy and it’s amazing on my nails.
