GREEN MEANS GO...
and i'm here to tell you, when you see that green Codex packaging - GO FOR IT!
I was gifted the Exfoliating Wash + Skin Superfood products a few weeks ago + I have been so, so over the moon happy with these products (and communication with the brand!)Although these products were gifted, the review is 100% my own thoughts + is in no way influenced by the brand. I also only partner with brands who allow me creative freedom, align with my style + is a brand that fits my skincare ethics.

HAPPY SKINCARE SUNDAY...
I hope you are masking it up this Mother's Day! OK, let's talk skincare. There are so many words thrown around in the world of skincare I want to take Sundays to focus on one word + break it down for you! This Sunday my skin has been feeling a bit dull + textured so I have been incorporating active detox masks to help oil control, keep my little pimple flare ups at a minimum + just give my skin the detox it deserves!
Friday is here...
+ boy do I feel like i'm running at a million miles per hour! There is nothing better than having a sunny Friday to accomplish all of those self-care things you may not have gotten to this week. For me, one of the tasks I desperately needed to accomplish today was giving my makeup brushes the deep clean they deserve.
This week's Friday Five I have focused on proper brush care + products to keep your brushes squeaky clean, conditioned + ready to create.
WHEN CHOOSING SKINCARE...
products on Amazon, it's incredibly important you are being mindful of the seller. Anyone can sell on Amazon meaning it's an easy place for slimeballs to make a quick buck. So, so sad. Here is quick insight into what this means + beauty products I recommend!
I've included products to give your skin a good, non-irritating detox, a tool to tackle those stubborn blackheads + a cute option for storing products - all from one place!
Just like that...
it's Friday again. This week I have been devoting much needed time to acts of self care. My self care heavily centers around skincare + overall wellbeing and after a very emotional last few days, self-care is the one thing that's perking me up. There is really nothing better than a relaxing evening that leaves you feeling radiant, beautiful + at peace.
This week i've included products from my favorite CBD brand, Soul Spring, a loofa to help with keratosis pilaris (along with other skin conditions), a mask to brighten your complexion, leopard print shower caps + a juicy giveaway!
I also would love if you wanted to drop your self-care ritual, tips, etc. into the comments for me + others to be inspired by as well!

the only good thing...
about this quarantine, is the fact that for the most part, we're not required to wear makeup – meaning our skin gets a rest. I've been using this time to really tap into my moisture levels + ensuring my skin is getting the protection, hydration + antioxidants it needs to stay fresh, healthy + well duh, glowy! I've outlined the morning routine I grab when I need to soothe redness, pack in the antioxidants + have a supple hydrated moisture barrier.
So go ahead, let it breathe - give your skin the love + care it deserves.

aren't totally a thing right now. Yet, even though we've been home for what seems like forever, that doesn't mean we shouldn't still have our Sunday self care routine!
This Sunday, I decided to give my skin extra hydration since its been feeling tight, dry and dull. I also used my viabuff duo exfoliator loofa (say goodbye to keratosis pilaris!) The viabuff helps exfoliate + boost skins natural cell renewal increasing clarity, dull skin, ingrown hairs and smoothness. it feels like an intense exfoliation but I promise, you'll be left bump free + silky smooth. With all of this down time, i've been able to spend time creating + have decided to apply to be part of the #sephorasquad! If I have impacted you, or we have impacted eachother in our daily life or in the realm of beauty, I would love your support by writing a testimonial. Thank you so much!

Below you'll find the items i'm using loving this selfcare Sunday including my favorite lounge pieces as well!
I am a huge fan of the seasonal subscription box, FabFitFun (read about the membership here!). Below you can find my unboxing video for the Spring 2020 box, as well as the three add-ons that I chose for this seasons box. My box totaled to right around $100 for the box and the 3 add-ons. My box consisted of haircare, skincare, home decor + much more!

IF THERE's ONE THING...
I can't live without in my skincare routine, its a good AHA exfoliant; it's no secret that exfoliants help sluff off dead skin cells + debris resulting in increased cell turnover revealing more radiant, smooth, bright, and clearer complexion. If you are seeking the answer to diminishing fine lines + wrinkles, you need an aha/bha in your routine. I had the opportunity to try Philosophy's new Microdelivery Dream Peel, a 6% AHA/BHA refining gel + I am so pleasantly surprised.
Skin feeling a bit run down? I’m right there with you! Our skin takes a lot throughout a long workweek. Between the added stress, excessive coffee use and 8 hour makeup wear, our skin deserves a little refresh.
