Self care can be attained beyond the spa! If I’m honest, taking regular trips to the spa to care for my skin is not something that is always within my budget. This is why I like keeping products like Bioré Witch Hazel Pore Strips and Toner at hand. I can deep clean and pamper my skin while tackling breakouts right from the comfort of my home.
Witch Hazel? You ask. Yes, I grew up using it! Though, I’ll admit that I just recently started using it as a regular ingredient in my skincare routine. Because it is an astringent and contains anti-inflammatory properties, it seems like the perfect ingredient to help ease my breakouts. In my case, I breakout at least once a month, so it is important for me to use products with ingredients that deep clean my pores. I feel that the Bioré Witch Hazel Toner does just that. Witch Hazel is said to remove excess dirt and oil from skin, help shrink pores, tighten and tone skin. The toner is available at Walmart and just under $7. Read More

I love discovering new products and being able to incorporate these to my lifestyle! So, I partnered with BabbleBoxx to try five summer essentials and share them all with you. Some of the products were new to me, while I was familiar with others. Needless to say, that I loved them all and have added them to my list of summer essentials!
With summer here, we’re spending a lot more time outside and refreshing products like Pure Leaf Tea House Collection, Cavit Rosé and My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream are a must. While, beauty products like Colleen Rothschild Beauty Water & Sheer Renewal Cream are essential to a good summer skincare routine. And cozy + chic pieces like Coobie’s undergarments are perfect for these hot summer days.
Whether you’re hitting the pool, beach or relaxing this summer, these goodies are ones that you’ll definitely want to try.
1. Pure Leaf Tea House Collection
I am a tea fanatic, and will almost always pick tea over coffee; whether it’s hot or iced! Pure Leaf is my go-to iced tea, when I’m looking for a refreshing drink. So, I am super excited about the Strawberry & Garden Mint and Spiced Chai flavors. Not only do they sound delicious but each taste SO good!
The Strawberry & Garden Mint is an organic Black Tea with hints of Strawberry & Garden Mint. The Spiced Chai is also an organic black tea with a blend of spices. If you love tea as much as I do, you’ll want to try these flavors. Explore the collection here
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. Read More

Everyone wants to have better skin. Some people are blessed with naturally clear, blemish-free skin. However, the vast majority of people don’t have skin that remains even toned and moisturized no matter their routine or regime. If you’ve ever found yourself picking at your skin in dismay because you’re breaking out again, then here are a few tips to help give you the skin of your dreams.
You are what you eat
Happy Friday!! Today’s Friday Favorite is YOUTH® skincare line by Shaklee. While, I had heard of Shaklee before, I will be honest in saying that I did not know that they provided skin care products as well. Because prevention is the best policy in skincare, I have been using the Youth Activating BB Cream, Youth Activating Serum and Radiance C + E capsules.
I am loving their products because they are formulated specifically to target and address aging at the cellular level of your skin. And all products are also 100% vegan and cruelty free, another reason to love them, am I right?
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.
You’re curious now! And wonder what is Saranghae? It’s a Korean 5 Step Anti-Aging Routine comprised of
