I’m in love with Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid!

 

I have recently had the opportunity to try out Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid from https://www.bzzagent.com/ and it’s now one of my new favorite parts of my skincare routine!

What is Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid, you ask? It’s a  leave-on exfoliant. Never heard of this before? I didn’t either because it’s really a revolutionary new product.

Here’s a list of benefits of using this:

  • Rapidly exfoliates the skin’s surface and inside the pore, reshaping the pore lining, unclogging pores and improving skin cell turnover rate
  • Increases collagen production and drastically smoothes the surface of skin
  • Attacks blemish-causing bacteria at a faster and deeper rate
  • Fades discolorations caused by dark spots and acne marks
    • Effective for anti-aging, blackheads, enlarged pores, keratosis pilaris (red bumps on arms and legs), redness, rosacea, wrinkles and acne breakouts
    • Exfoliates to reveal smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin
    • Calms redness and builds collagen
    • Creates radiant, clear, even-toned skin
    • Is 100% fragrance- and colorant-free, with no added dyes or irritants
    • Is never tested on animals

In short, I LOVE this product. Here are some results of my own:

Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream is the Best BB Cream I’ve Used Yet #freshandflawless

Standard

When I first learned about BB cream, I was more than a little excited, I must say. Then I tried my first one… it felt grainy like there were granules of sand in it. I love the idea of a tinted moisturizer that also has an SPF plus other beauty benefits. Who doesn’t want to streamline their makeup routine, after all? After I tried my first BB cream, I figured I was doomed to a routine consisting of moisturizer, primer, SPF and foundation separately. Then came along Play Fresh Faces BB Cream, which was part of the Sunkissed VoxBox from Influenster. If you haven’t signed up with Influenster, it’s one of my favorite programs and best of all-it’s FREE! You can sign up here, if you aren’t already a member.

Olay BB Cream glides on nice and smooth and even better, it conceals the natural redness I have in my skin. My sensitive skin has not reacted to it and with SPF 15 built right in it protects as well! The average retail price is just $14.99 so it really is affordable! I will continue to purchase it even after I’m done with the tube I was sent, which will be awhile since it is a full 2.5 ounces.

AVEENO® POSITVELY RADIANT® Intensive Night Cream

Standard

I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Influenster AVEENO® POSITVELY RADIANT® Intensive Night Cream box, in which I was sent a jar of AVEENO® POSITVELY RADIANT® Intensive Night Cream to try out.

I love trying out new products and was excited to test the product out. I have used Aveeno products in the past and they have always done what they claim and they don’t irritate my sensitive skin. I have tried products out that claimed to be Hypo-allergenic, but some still irritate my skin.

The first night I tried out the product, I was pleasantly surprised by the soft, smooth consistency which wasn’t as thick as many night creams I’ve tried before. This is a good thing since the thicker the cream, the more oily it tends to feel on the skin. I also didn’t need to use much product to moisturize my face. Throughout the past couple of weeks that I’ve been using AVEENO® POSITVELY RADIANT® Intensive Night Cream, I have noticed my skin looking less blotchy then usual as well as more smooth. I’d say that AVEENO® POSITVELY RADIANT® Intensive Night Cream is a great product to try, especially if you don’t have super-dry skin and are even a little sensitive, like myself. You can find AVEENO® POSITVELY RADIANT® Intensive Night Cream at all major retailers for about $16.99 a jar.

I am a Saline Ambassador for Boogie Wipes!

Standard

 

I was recently chosen to be a “Saline Ambassador” for Boogie Wipes and am super excited about working with them! If you don’t know what Boogie Wipes are then you are most likely A: not a parent or B: not very active online. I only say this because I have been using Boogie Wipes for about a year now and am obsessed with them. Boogie Wipes are a saline solution wipe that has awesome scents. They are marketed for kids but I know adults who use them too…like me. 🙂 I’ve just heard that they make great Halloween Makeup removers as well so for anyone going the makeup route you should check them out! I’ll be having a party for my local friends to introduce them to the wipes since the ambassador program is all about sharing personal experiences and not meant to be online that much. I am just so excited I had to share the news. If anyone is interested in learning more about Boogie Wipes, just leave me a comment!

 

I have not been paid for this post. I am receiving product samples as well a gift card for being in the Saline Ambassador program. All opinions expressed are my own.
