Eyelash Extensions Review

I have been a fan of lash extensions for years. I just love the way they make my eyes look. I recently partnered up with Kayla from Bangz Hair Studio, to share her newly added eyelash extensions service.

I knew with Summer approaching it would be perfect for the makeup-free  days and events that I have in the next few months ahead.

The first appointment is always the longest, since you are starting off with a full set of eyelashes. It took about two hours and some people may use it as a time to take a nap, me and Kayla chatted. Kayla applied single lashes to the roots of my eyelashes with tweezers and a special glue. Kayla made sure to let me know to wash my face with an oil free cleanser and to use oil free eye makeup remover if you wear any eye makeup. I could not believe how amazing my lashes looked when she was done. It looked very natural and I didn’t even need any mascara, which is great and my lashes looked naturally long.

I would definitely recommend lash extensions if you have been considering them. Your eyes don’t feel any different after, they just look prettier. After about 2 weeks you can go back in for a fill in which takes about half the time of the first appointment. Usually within that time frame the extensions will shed with your natural lashes.

If you are interested in setting up an appointment you can call Kayla at Bangz Hair Studio at 864-224-9000, she’s amazing. Check out some of her work on Instagram! Also, if you mention this post, you will receive $10 off your first full set of extensions.

Favorite Amazon Beauty Buys

Hey lovelies! I just wanted to start out and mention that I am addicted to ordering from Amazon. I probably place an Amazon order at least once a week. And yes, I am an Amazon Prime Member, so at least I save a little money with that service, right? Of course you have to pay for the service but you do save in the long run. I order a lot of random things, things for the baby, and beauty products so today I wanted to show you my favorite beauty buys. More posts coming soon on the other products.

Now on to the beauty buys:

Carbon Coco Review

I have recently become  obsessed with my teeth. It’s the first thing I look at in the mirror in the morning. Now that I am a mom I drink more coffee than usual and of course it can stain your teeth. I think white teeth are a basic necessity and I feel “dirty” if mine aren’t white. Carbon Coco reached out asking if I’d like to try their natural teeth whitening products and I was all about it. Keep reading to find out more about it.

HOW TO USE CARBON COCO
All you need to do is wet the toothbrush, dip into the powder and tap off. The just brush your teeth for 30 seconds, rinse and brush teeth normally with toothpaste. How simple is that?!

Do I recommend it?
Yes I do. It does make a mess in the bathroom, but my teeth have definitely gotten whiter. So it does work.

Night Time Skincare Routine

Happy Friday dolls!

A few weeks ago I shared a post with you all about my morning skincare routine. Today I am looking forward to sharing my nighttime skincare routine. It is a little more extensive than my morning routine, but the results are worth it.

What are some products that you all have in your nighttime routine?

Philosophy Cleansing Cloths: These are AMAZING! They feel so great on your face and remove my makeup so well.

Erno Laszlo White Marble Vitamin C Peel: I use this once for deep exfoliation and it works wonders.

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish: This product makes my lips feel so smooth! I use it two times a week. All you have to do is massage it on your lips then wipe off, so easy!

Tula Purifying Face Cleanser: This is easily the best cleanser I have ever used. It feels so great on my skin. This cleanser goes deep into your pores to remove impurities and helps condition skin.

Tula Pro-Glycolic Resurfacing Gel: This product is so amazing and it is so gentle on my sensitive skin. It uses probiotics, glycolic acid, and beetroot extract to gently exfoliate your skin. It leaves it smooth and hydrated.

La Mer Moisturizing Cream: I have been using this for about a year now and so happy that I started to use. It is so gentle and leaves my skin so soft.

Tula Revitalizing Eye Cream: I have always been picky about eye creams until I found this one. It hydrates the skin around the eyes which minimizes lines and dark circles.

Tula Dual Phase Skin Reviving Treatment Pads: I use these two times a week and I am so happy to have purchased these. They really brighten up your skin. I saw a difference after three weeks of using them.

La Mer Hand Treatment: This was a splurge for hand cream, but worth it! It makes my hands feel so smooth and I put it on every night. This has to be my favorite purchase in my skincare routine. It was perfect for the winter months for when my hands were super dry.

Morning Skincare Routine

Happy Friday dolls!

We all know how important a good skincare routine is. To me the morning skincare line up is important. It is about protection and preservation, especially now that I am in my late 20s.

You could easily add about ten steps to your routine in the morning, but there four are important ones that I do every morning.

Tula Purifying Face Cleanser: This is easily the best cleanser I have ever used. It feels so great on my skin. This cleanser goes deep into your pores to remove impurities and helps condition skin.

Tula Pro-Glycolic Resurfacing Gel: This product is so amazing and it is so gentle on my sensitive skin. It uses probiotics, glycolic acid, and beetroot extract to gently exfoliate your skin. It leaves it smooth and hydrated.

La Mer Moisturizing Cream: I have been using this for about a year now and so happy that I started to use. It is so gentle and leaves my skin so soft.

 Tula Revitalizing Eye Cream: I have always been picky about eye creams until I found this one. It hydrates the skin around the eyes which minimizes lines and dark circles.

Makeup Favorites

I could spend forever in any makeup store. I’m not sure if it’s because I love discovering new products, or because I just can’t choose something that I want. Anyway, I have to say that purchasing a lot of new makeup gives me a feeling of satisfaction. I just love the freshness of it all. Today I’m sharing my makeup favorites for eyes, brows and face that I totally recommend.

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint: Love this product so much. You get just enough coverage with an SPF 30 that protects your skin.

Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel: I love how this makes my brows look. I don’t even need to fill them in! Also, it is water resistant which is a plus in my book.

NARS Eyeliner: The minute I tried this I was immediately I was obsessed.  I’ve been wearing this almost everyday and it really makes my eyes pop. I either add it to the top or the bottom, sometimes both at the same time.

Trish McEvoy Correct and Brighten Pen: As a new mom this is a must have for me! It definitely covers those dark circles and brightens my under eyes better than any product has before.
