Dry Face? Heres my secret!

I know I have dropped of the blogisphere and not that there is a good excuse. 
 All I can say is life is a tad bit crazy. 

I had a question this morning about face cleansers. 
The text I got said "my face seems really dry.  It may be the weather but what cleanser do you use?"

I am currently using this and I did a post about it a month or so ago.  There are a few things I really like about the Kheils foaming non-detergent washable cleanser... it cleanses extremely well!  I like the foaminess and it really does get all of my make up off in one wash.  One negative is that it may be drying.  It does seem a little aggressive.  So this brings me to the cleanser I used before...

Product Description: Ultra-mild cleansing powder for all skin types. Water-soluble. Fresh fragrance. Apply daily in the morning and evening for the pleasant feeling of clean and relaxed skin.

Price: $38.00

Where do you get?

What does b* say?
My skin is riridiculous and most likely it is my hormones and everything else that being a women entails.  (Oh and my picking habit???)  Regardless I switch cleanser often.  I went through a faze where my skin was really dry and this was my what I used and loved it.  It was gentle.  I did have to cleanse twice to remove my makeup but I do recommend it. 



I change facial products like I change my clothes.
But once I find something I am hooked.
And I think this product has got me!

Product description: An intensive treatment creme formulated with stabilized hydrogen peroxide and pure lavender oil. Perfect for skin dulled by smoking, stress, and aging.
How does it work?  Revitalizes dull, sluggish skin, helps unclog pores and produces a clean, refreshed feeling. Gives skin a healthy-looking glow with daily use.

Price: $50.00

What does b* say?
On my hunt for moisturizer I was searching for something lightweight that I could wear under my makeup but still effective.  I have complex skin so in some areas it need to be light and in others it need to be more aggressive.  I feel like oxygenation does the trick. I can wear it morning or evening and it leaves my skin smooth, refreshed, and moisturized. 


Cravin' the Cream

I know this seems a little unseasonal but it is not!
The other night I was making Apple Crisp and I believe nothing complements "crisp" better than a homemade bowl of Ice cream. 
 It may sound labor intensive but it is not with this fancy NO FUSS machine.

Last summer, I made quite a few batches of ice cream, but for whatever reason we didn't even pull this bad boy out once until last week.  I always leave the bowl in the freezer so it is cold whenever I need it.  I have mixed many flavors but my all time favorite is Vanilla and this is the easiest recipe...
Vanilla Ice Cream:
2 cups half and half
2 cups whole milk
1 can sweet and condensed milk
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Mix all together and pour in frozen Ice cream bowl.  Let churn for 45 minutes and then put in freezer safe Tupperware.  Freeze for 1.5 hours.  and ENJOY!

It claims that it has vitamins a, e, c, and also contains green tea extract.  I like that I am getting my daily vitamins from my makeup ;)  Kidding but what I do like is the sheen\natural glow that I get from this.  One thing is that a little goes a LONG way. 2 benefits from that... the bottle will last you longer and you can start by applying a little and build from there to get your desired glow.

Today I was in the mood look cute but didn't want to hassle with jeans and an uncomfortable waste band.  So instead I opted for the black jean leggings, a tunic like dress, scarf, and Frye boots.  Comfortable and seemingly stylish!


Cheek Chic

I have always been one for bronzers!
I have preferred it to blush for years, but as I am getting older I appreciate is more and more.

I was watching Gossip Girl the other night (one of my many guilty pleasures) and could not get over Serena's make up!!!  Skin flawless, with a dewy peachy cheek, and a light orange\peachy lip...

I tried to recreate the look this morning with this...

glominerals blush offers high pigment color for expert shading and highlighting.  Directions: Blush should always appear to come from within the skin, like a natural flush. Always smile and apply gloBlush to the apples of the cheeks using the blush brush or the angled blush brush.

I am really liking this color.  It is delicate with a perfect hit of color.  I really like that it is mineral based and has a high pigment base.  A little goes a long way.  I also like that it stay true to it tone.  You know when you apply makeup and it looks nothing like the color you bought?  If you don't love the peachyness go to http://www.gloprofessional.com/ they have a great selection!
