Hey there! Well it’s been a while since my last blog post (a busted laptop and life will do that) but I’ve replaced my laptop and am ready to get back into it with a renewed enthusiasm! I have a lot to catch up on.

One thing I’ve been wanting to share with you is my latest skincare routine. I’ve been sticking to my newer routine pretty regularly for about a month and using the same products consistently. It’s a tad simpler and more streamlined than it had been (if you can believe it lol), but time will tell if it’s truly meant to be. My skin type is oily and prone to hormonal breakouts, so I use products that will (hopefully) control that situation. As a side note, another skincare goal is to possibly downsize my products, in particular my cleansers and makeup removers. I like everything I have but I don’t know if they’re all necessary to have at the same time, but it’s also nice to have options. The struggle, as they say, is real.

Hey Friends! Summer has officially started and I’m back to my blogging ways! Teaching is over for a bit and though you’d think I’d welcome days off with open arms, it does take a few days for me to get into the summer rhythm. I’m sure I’ll get over it though!

Disclosure: This product was sent to me for free. All opinions are my own.

I’m reviewing the Even Deeper Cleansing Oil by International Face Station. I’ve always been a little weary of using oils on my face even though they’re supposed to be OK for different skin types (I get oily for the record). I’ve tried different brands before and stopped just because I didn’t see any benefits but who knows if I was even using them correctly. Since receiving this, I’ve become more interested in how they are actually used. Cleansing oils can be used alone or in conjunction with another cleanser of your choice (double-cleansing I guess is the official term).  Anyway, here are details about the product:

BareMinerals Clay Chameleon Cleanser Review

Hola, Beauts! So this winter I’ve been interested in trying out charcoal or mud masks. I read amazing reviews on a BareMinerals mask called Dirty Detox but apparently it’s sold out and isn’t coming back in stock for a while! WHAT!

So after that disappointing information was confirmed at their boutique, a saleslady showed me this other product I might like called Clay Chameleon, $22. This isn’t sold as a mask but as a cleanser and can be used for all skin types. Since we actually had similar skin types (oily), she had my attention. This product normally retails at $22.00 for 4.2 oz at their boutique which I found to be reasonable, and even more so with a promo they had going on at the time. I ended up spending $18.00. Now let’s get into the review!
