Morning Wake Up ☀️
This week I’m testing a new facial oil and I had a brightening serum run out. I also changed out eye creams and exfoliating serums from last week. I am very close to being done with two other serums as well. I hope they stagger themselves as I don’t like starting multiple new things in the same week. Even though I do get bored and may want to move on quickly
I had a successful week cleaning out the closet stash and stash in general. Trashed expired stuff and set aside things I’m just not reaching for anymore. My stash feels manageable again. Happy Sunday and Memorial Day Weekend. Hope you’re all doing something good
*These are in order in the photo from front to back, not in order of how I apply. I’ll post the order in my stories then save it. I’ll do that from now on with these weekly posts

Last month, @yewandnarra sent me a few mini-sized products to try out and I liked them so much that I recently picked up a few full sizes! Yew + Narra is a small batch company that hand makes skincare and body products using all natural and organic ingredients. All of their products are so luxurious and smell incredible. Their prices are also very reasonable. I love supporting this brand because they have amazing products and values! These products are all from their Rose Collection, which I personally love because I’m a big fan of rose!
. . . . . . . . . .
🌹 Coco Rose Body Butter: This is one of my all-time favorite body creams. The formula is super fluffy and it has a unique whipped consistency - it’s so luxurious! It’s ingredients are very minimal and include shea butter, coconut oil and rose essential oil. The scent is not overpowering and is very light and beautiful. It sinks in quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized even until the next day.
🌹 Himalayan Rose Body Scrub: This scrub smells amazing if you are a fan of rose! It’s ingredients include sugar, Himalayan salt, coconut oil, and rose essential oil. It does a great job of exfoliating without being too abrasive. It does leave a slight oily film which I personally like because it leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized when I get out of the shower.
🌹 Wilde Rose Bath Salts: I don’t currently have a bathtub in my apartment 😭 so I haven’t been able to try these out yet! I’m moving in a few weeks though and will have a bathtub then! So far my impressions are good though. They smell amazing and I love bath salts!

A well stocked self care Sunday, have you checked out sale?!? All body scrubs are 40% off! ✨

Vibes 💖

All my skin goodies!! 😍 cannot wait to add more to this shelf! Shopping cart is already full 😂
Anybody else organize by function?? 🙋🏽‍♀️ give me a like if ya do 😘

Here’s to getting tans over the next few days because I was recently described as translucent and I can’t and shan’t with that.

For someone who doesn’t really like the color pink, I’ve sure got a lot of pink products. 💓 If you scroll through my posts, you’ll see that I actually use everything. I share my skincare with my mom and with loved ones if they’ll allow me, so I don’t waste any product. Everything’s well loved and I don’t just hoard without using any of them. 🤷🏼‍♀️
I know I said I’d go back to posting my routines, and I will, but I felt this was an obligatory post since it is #shelfiesunday after all. ☺️
Are you going to be participating in #selfcaresunday today? If so, what’ll you be using? I need to pick up some more sheet masks, but I’ll probably be using the @freshbeauty Vitamin Nectar Mask and following it up with @glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask, which is a holy grail. I’m trying to behave until the next VIB sale to pick up the Summer Fridays mask, but my dry skin is crying for it 😭

Ever growing mini @tatcha collection✨
I'm in love with the gold spun lip balm.

As someone who is strongly anti-hype, it cracks me up that I purchased this. Let's just say that beautiful ingredient list got to me. 🙋
. When things are over-hyped I like to wait several months/years before I purchase them. A good example is the summer friday's jet lag mask. It was so tempting when it first became available but the longer I've waited to buy it, the less interested I've become. It doesn't work for skin as dry as mine and for the pricepoint, I wasn't going to risk it.
. @glowrecipe's watermelon glow sleeping mask was one of those items I held off purchasing for a loooong time. I've read every review I could get my hands on, I thought about it for months, and I finally decided to take the plunge last week. Mainly because I'm a sucker for sleeping masks and have yet to find my holy grail (volition beauty's is good, but too silicone-y for me). And also, it's a pretty good deal if you buy both the moisturizer and sleeping mask as a set. Too good to pass up.
. I tried the watermelon glow mask out a few times and it's really similar to their "moisturizer", just thicker. Both products are extremely light... and neither contain any oil content so they're not going to address dryness. Despite the fact that glow recipe's duo is best suited for oily skin types, I've been enjoying them. They are refreshing and hydrating, and so far they blend well with facial oils which means I can make them work for my skin type too. 👍
. Plus that watermelon scent reminds me of @grownalchemist's lip balm which is one of my favs. Who can pass up a good watermelon scent?
. I'll have a proper review up soon, so stay tuned! In the meanwhile, are there any hyped up items you've wanted to buy but hesitated? How do you feel about products like these in general?

Eyes set for now
I hate to doing my lash and maybe only 2% of all mascaras that I had. One month ago I was and drugstore and looking for good mascara couse my order come to me AND it was this time that I bought this @lorealmakeup Volumissime Royals. My mascara must stay on my lashes all days or night and don’t doing panda-effect at eye area. Look always like “baby, I doing my lashes two minutes ago” 💁🏻‍♀️ Also add volume. This mascara totally change the game! 🤯❤️

☀️ My current Brightening Skincare Routine ☀️

Okay, so been absent for a couple of days due to unending house projects and deadlines - but still going strong on keeping up with my skincare routines.

Lately, I have been trying to come up with a brightening routine that I can do 3 times a week - starting from cleansers, toners, mask to serum/oils. @mariobadescu has a good number of skin brightening products that works for me. •
☀️ Glycolic Foaming Cleanser - deep cleans pores and remove dulling buildup. This is a glycolic based exfoliating cleanser. I use this cleanser at night. I feel really clean and It doesn't make my skin feel stiff after.
☀️ Glycolic Acid Toner - this is an exfoliating and rejuvenating toner that is soothing and effective for dull and dry skin. It has grapefruit extract and Glycolic Acid that naturally break down the build-up of dead skin cells. It also helps reduce uneven skin tone and minor discoloration. I use this in the AM and PM - making sure to use sunscreen in the morning.
☀️ Vitamin C Serum - this helps protect skin from the damaging effects of free radicals. Ascorbic Acid works to reduce the visible signs of aging, brighten uneven skin tone and smooth overall texture. This also has Hyaluronic Acid hydrates and helps preserve the skins natural moisture.
☀️ Enzyme Revitalizing Mask - this mask revitalizes the complexion, it is rich in vitamins and minerals to help draw impurities from the skin. The exfoliating papaya extract helps reduce the buildup of dulling surface cells, leaving skin nourished, fresh and renewed.
☀️ Super Collagen Mask - this mask will unveil plumper, firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Perfect for dry or dull complexion. I like to use this the day after I do all other brightening products - to help provide nourishment to my skin.

I still use other products to support my brightening regimen, but these @mariobadescu babies are my main warriors!

🍒 @hurrawbalm black cherry tinted lip balm
I feel like a lot of the products I’ve tried recently and shared on here have let me down so here’s a recent purchase that I absolutely love! it feels so much nicer to talk about products you’re happy with ☺️
I’ve been a fan of hurraw balms since I first tried them earlier this year but this tinted cherry one is hands down my fave and now one of my all time favourite beauty products!
it gives enough colour to bring a look together and is so comfortable to wear. of all makeup items I think lip colours are the most high maintenance and this is why as much as I love a proper red lip I don’t often wear one. you can do a strong winged liner and feel pretty confident nothing will touch it and mess it up throughout the day but lip colours wear off so easily 💔 whilst this tint also wears off I can reapply it care free without a mirror and I look forward to reapplying it as it make my lips super soft and smell like a bakewell tart 🥧🍒
hurraw have just released a purple carrot and raspberry tinted balm - not as much my colour but I’ll probably cave because they’re only £4.99!! keeping my fingers crossed they do a brownish tint next 🤞
I bought mine from @naturismo about a month ago as they have free delivery but @lookfantastic, @wholefoods and @planetorganic stock them too (uk) I’ve worn it nearly everyday since purchasing and i miss it when I don’t have it on 😅 is anyone else a fan?

The makeup you use should not be what makes you feel beautiful. Nourish your base—don’t coverup what makes you, you. Makeup is temporary. Learn to love your skin, it’s yours forever.
