It wasn’t so long ago when prepping your skin before applying makeup was simple. For me, it consisted of only applying moisturizer. The idea of a primer or lip treatments weren’t really available or even popular. Today, all of that has changed and I put a lot more pep in my prep.
I have a fondness for apples. They’re one of my favorite snack foods. I use them in jams and jellies and as fun, unexpected ingredients in recipes. And candles? Don’t even get me started on that subject. I’m a bona fide candle freak! I love tropical, forest and fruit scents alike — and apple scented candles are right up there near the top of my wish list all the time.
I have apple-scented lotions that I love to use to help with my dry skin, apple-scented body washes, and have purchased shampoo and conditioners that feature this sweet fruit scent, as well. But, these beauty staples aren’t the only ones that make excellent use of apple extracts. Read on to learn about a few new apple-scented beauty finds I’ve discovered!… [read more]
I must confess something…I’ve become a skincare junkie. I’m constantly searching for the best and the newest, especially those products geared towards anti-aging. I nerd out reading about new skincare innovations and technology. And if there is a gadget involved, I’m all about it.
I’ve been following Wen hair care products for a few years now. Always curious as to how it works. Are they it worth it? Do they live up to the hype?
For the last few months, I’ve been dealing with a small eczema breakout on my face. It was odd. Why, you ask? First, I’ve never had an eczema breakout. In the past, my son has had eczema breakouts. I was always told to use lotion and keep his skin hydrated. It would make an appearance when I used different makeup or skincare products. Then it would go away after using natural products for a bit.
I am a huge fan of QVC. Over the last year or so, I’ve purchased a handful of shoes. I love watching QVC because they show you how to use the products! It helps when the products featured are hair, makeup and skincare products. It gives us an idea of how to use the products and get the most out of them.
At the time I started Beauty Brite, I tried a few homemade beauty masks. Many of the homemade masks included using green tea. I love drinking green tea, so utilizing and reusing the tea leaves for beauty was fun and relaxing.
With Halloween around the corner, I am reminded of when I was in elementary school and I dressed up as a witch. My mom bought a little set of witch makeup. When we were done trick or treating for the evening, my mom gave me some of her skin care products to wash my face. The next morning, I woke up to my face having a bad reaction to the makeup or the skincare products. Looking back, I thought it was the skincare products but I really think it was the cheap makeup.
