Snapchat Sneak Peek #4


    StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner

    ¬†Although I love skincare, I like to think of myself as simple minded when it comes to different products. I usually stick to an all-natural cleanser and exfoliator, and use a dark spot corrector with Simple lotion and I’m done. Easy, right? Of course there are serums and creams and endless treatments, but I have sensitive skin so I tend to shy away from a lot of products.

    ¬†But just speaking about pores got me interested in the new¬†StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner. It is nothing like I have ever¬†used before. It’s like a mix between a primer or lotion that targets big pores like a dream. It is applied over the top of all of your other skincare products and leaves a beautiful matte finish (a combination skin girls dream) and really does reduce the look of fine lines and pores just by applying it.

    After using it for nearly two months, I have to say that this product has absolutely made a difference in my skin. Using it mostly in my t-zone, I have noticed my skin looking and feeling smoother than it ever has in my entire adult life and not nearly as much breakthrough with oil during the day. It creates the perfect balanced of moisture in my skin by making it feel hydrated, but not greasy and I swear my skin is more clear than ever before. Even most of my redness has disappeared. Below is a before and after. The left being from 2 months ago before I used StriVectin and the right being tonight. I can absolutely see a difference.

    Don’t judge my gross bare skin. But now, Just touching my face feels so incredibly soft it’s almost unbelievable and for a minute I honestly couldn’t figure out why, but this is the only other skincare product I’ve been using. Now I can’t help but think, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!

    Like i said, I am no expert with skincare ingredients. I cannot speak to the benefits of the retinol or¬†NIA-114‚ĄĘ (their patented technology that helps to provide the perfect mix of hydration and adsorption for your skin), but I can say this product is working for me. It has made my skin smoother, more even and balanced and i ¬†simply love it. It’s lightweight, nearly fragrance free and provides the perfect amount of hydration for my skin. if i were you, i’d RUN to go pick this bad boy up. check it out right here.

    Have you tried any StriVectin products?

    YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks!

    wanna talk about luxury?

     First of all, i am so happy to have the opportunity to get my hands on these beauties. just the packaging alone feels so luxurious, its almost unfair. from the gold tubes, to the detailing, to the weight. i don’t own a lot of high end lipsticks, but these, by far are the most gorgeous.

    a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be picked for the #yslrougepurcouture influenster box and these two babes have just been sent to me.

     The first thing I noticed when I swatched these lipsticks was the color payoff. one swipe and its full of pigment and it feels absolutely dreamy on the lips. they are so incredibly comfortable and moisturizing and the staying power is amazing. They even leave a beautiful stain on your lips. 

    My suggestion, if you love luxury lipsticks that feel like heaven on the lips, pick one of these up. They’re everything you’ve hoped for and so much more. 

    Have you tried these YSL lipsticks yet?

    Foreo Luna Dupe: Worth the hype!

       There are certain items that are on my ultimate lust list. well, more like my amazon wishlist, but they sit there forever, basically because I cannot convince myself to drop a wad of cash on something that seems so simple. keeping my skin clear is always a concern of mine though, so, of course I wanted to try products that so many people rave about. that being said, the Foreo Luna mini had been on my wishlist for at LEAST 6 months to a year.

    Foreo took over the blogosphere not too long ago as a contender to the massively coveted Clarisonic. i, however, couldn’t convince myself to try either of them simply because of the price tag. sure, people raved  about how amazing they were, but i also heard HORROR stories about how the Clarisonic can make your skin purge. ew, i’ll pass. don’t try to convince me that its good for your skin in the long run. to make a long story short (like shut up already, right?!) the Foreo is a completely different design, but you can use it as an equally coveted facial cleansing device (brush head vs rubberized surface). and people really have been loving it. but at $129 a pop, mama was not jumping the gun.

    luckily, my amazon suggestions were like “hey girl, here’s a dupe for like $40.” and i was like “aww thx boo xoxo.” and i picked up this one.


      It’s called the Solo Mio Sonic Facial Brush. Looks almost identical (except for a kind of different shape), but I could care less about that. I was more interested in how it worked. full disclosure: i’m in LOVE. at first, i thought i was breaking out a little, but aunt flow was also in town so that could  be the case. either way. my skin has never been so soft in my life. i use it in the morning and in the evening with my CeraVe foaming facial cleanser and its so gentle, but also helps to exfoliate and clean my skin. I haven’t even really broke out since that first week of using it, even in my more hormonal weeks (thanks mother nature!) & I really love it. and the best part about it is how affordable it is. I am so glad i bought this dupe instead of spending the embarrassing amount on the Foreo brand cleanser. like BYE felicia! take your markups elsewhere.


     This little baby stays charged for literally FOREVER. seriously, I charged it once when I first got it (almost two months ago) and haven’t touched it since. it has a million different vibrating speeds and two different silicone “microfinger” sides (one for gentle and one for more deep cleansing) and fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. I adore it and will never stop using it.

    so basically if you have been thinking about pulling the trigger on any of the Foreo line, I would say to try this one first and see if you like it. its a fraction of the cost and gets every bit of the job done.

    whats your favorite facial cleanser?

    Loves, Chelsea xoxo
