Whipped from hydrating extracts and anti-oxidants, this weightless, moisturizing bronzer gives you a golden just-stepped-off-the-beach glow, no matter the season, wherever you are.

Of course, my favorite mascara… I ran out of my other so needed to buy this!

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition 21 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette

What a BEAUTIFUL palette, I love Carli Bybel and never got around to buying her first palette, so I figured I’d wait until this one came out. It was well worth the wait!

Misc. Makeup

Essence is a great and affordable drug-store makeup brand that is worth trying.

Cover Girl Simply Ageless Serum Primer

I haven’t tried this yet.

Details: Prime your skin for your makeup routine and fight the signs of aging in one product. Reduce the signs of aging by getting the extra hydration in the primer that has the Olay Regenerist moisturizer.

Skincare Products

Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C X 30 Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Mask

Details: An intensive nighttime treatment that not only brightens but moisturizes skin while you sleep. Treat while you sleep – wake up with the appearance of brighter, more moisturized skin. This must-have sleeping mask contains camu camu berry, a potent superfruit that has 30 times the vitamin C of an orange and powerful absorption properties.

On to skin care; I’ve been wanting to start using some type of Vitamin C products in my skincare routine. Vitamin C is useful for brightening and moisturizing skin, as well as producing and maintaining collagen, which I love. I tried a sample of the PTR Sleep Mask and fell in love; now that I’ve been using it regularly I have seen a difference in my skin.

Peter Thomas Roth Blemish Buffing Beads Cleanser

Details: An ultra-gentle anti-acne version of Botanical Buffing Beads scrub that may be used on the face and body for the treatment and control of acne. Salicylic Acid helps clear up acne blemishes while a Glycolic Acid Complex and oil absorbing ingredients help produce flawless, clear skin. Soft, ultra-fine Jojoba Beads work in two ways. First, they help exfoliate surface dead skin cells without irritation, allowing acne treatment products to penetrate better. Then, the ultra-fine Jojoba beads help open clogged pores and release sebum that contributes to blackheads and whiteheads.

SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Spot Correcting Moisturizer

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner

I have yet to try either of these products, but I have heard great things about the brand and love that their products are not tested on animals.

Face Masks

nugg Revitalizing Face Mask – Flaxseed & Peppermint Oil

Peter Thomas Roth 24k Gold Mask

Yes.. this product has real gold flakes in it, but I personally don’t think it is worth the price, considering other masks I have tried that did just as much.

Key Benefits & Ingredients:
Pure 24 Karat Gold – imparts an opulent, radiant glow, gold locks in moisture and keeps skin firm by maintaining collagen in the skin and inhibiting the breakdown of elastin
Colloidal Gold – known as “activated gold” helps lift, firm, and restore lost elasticity
Caffeine – an anti-oxidant known to help firm, contour and tighten the appearance of skin
Peridot – an ancient green gemstone rich in magnesium, helps re-energize, decreases cellular oxidation and minimizes the aging effects of stress
Hyaluronic Acid & Glycerin – humectants that plump skin and deliver intense hydration by attracting and retaining moisture from water in the air

Woah.. that was a long post! I’m going to get around to reviewing my new products, as I will be off school until Monday. Ciao!
