Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone had a great weekend and Father’s Day, my weekend was great and somewhat relaxing. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review on how I feel about Milk Makeup hydro grip primer. I got a good feel on it and got time to gather my thoughts about this product. And wanted to share just in case anyone looking to try it out.

So I purchased this primer not to long ago, I was looking to try out a new primer. For a good two to three years now I’ve been using the becca matte primer and I’ve stuck to it. And I wanted to look for a primer that can hold my makeup, not make my face look or feel dry. The becca primer is matte but sadly it leaves a white consistency on my face. I wanted to try the hydro primer, at first I was unsure about it because how the consistency looked. And it looked like it would leave a sticky feeling afterwards but I decided to give it a try. I needed a primer and I had no second choice t to be honest lol. You can find the product here on sephora.

The hydro grip primer is a hydrating gripping primer. This product carries cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract for all day hydration. One of the things I love about the product is it has aloe water in it. And it blends clear to work with all skin types. For product to work best is to apply product over clean skin. Pump one to two shots apply product and let sit for one minute to activate grip. You can also wear this primer alone if you just want an no make up day. After using this product it does what it says my face felt 100% hydrated. I did not get a sticky greasy feeling after application even a few minutes after applying the product. And a little goes a long way with this product, which is a bonus.

After applying my foundation on it blended well with no issues my foundation looked smooth and blended. . The only thing I didn’t get to test was the length of time it holds up. I didn’t have my foundation on long enough to see how my foundation looked hours later. But I cant honestly talk about that and give results because we all have different skin types. And how my make up may look hours later yours may look different. so it all varies. My skin is only oily in my T zone and chin so usually hours later it gets oily. But hopefully this product helps with that issue.

If I had to rate this product out of 10 id give a 7, just because I still need to wear the product more and get more of a feel out of it. And wear it for a good couple of hours and see how my foundation holds up. But overall I love the product it was worth the buy and I honestly cant complain. If any of you have tried it what are your thoughts? Or is anyone going to try it out? Let me know in the comments. I always love to hear from you all, and ill talk to you all in the next blog!

Green Clean Sample Review

Good morning everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! Happy Friday everyone I hope everyone had a pretty chill week? This week for me has been hectic it’s crazy, am currently in the process of moving and I have been busy trying to organise everything especially the way I want lol you already know moving and with small kids equals mess and I don’t do well with mess. Then also I have been slightly sick this week “yay for me” that has been tough also my six month old too and then my husband has severe allergies so my house hold at the moment is crazy. I’m surprised I even could type this out with the way am feeling and praying I get sleep tonight from my six month old. But for today’s blog post I just wanted to do a quick review on a product I got as a sample of and I never used it up until yesterday and I instantly fell in love with it.

The product is called Green Clean, I haven’t heard of it until I got it as a sample in my Ipsy monthly make up bag. For awhile I had the product just laying around until yesterday I decided to get it a try, the product is a make up melt away balm and yesterday I was in the worst mood and just wanted my make up off asap and decided to give it a try. Now so far personally I haven’t came across any great make up removers other then Dermalogica 
pre cleanse, this is one of the best make up removers its not just a make up remover but a cleanser as well I would highly recommend trying this product out! 

So not only do I love the bottle packaging but I love the texture of the product as well, it does come off like it said as a balm form its really soft and comes off as creamy when applying to your face with water. Now that wasn’t the only thing that caught my attention when trying out the product I also noticed the smell of the product, it is more of a mint smell to it and it wasn’t to strong as well. It was not to strong of a mint smell or to light just enough to notice when applying to your skin and I absolutely love it. Now with the product I only have about a sample size (as you see in the pic) but what I love is with this product is ” a little bit goes a long way” . I grabbed about three small amounts to my finger tips and worked it around on my face and it got a good amount of make up off my face, I was actually quite impressed to be honest and you wouldn’t even need to apply more after I rinsed off that portion I continued rinsing and just that amount lifted most of my make up off.

This product is for normal to oily skin type, it helps with dryness, uneven skin tone and dullness of the skin. The top highlighted ingredients in the product are sunflower and ginger root oil, this is what helps melt away your stubborn make up. This product also helps remove impurities and gently exfoliates the skin! This is an absolute plus for me as I didn’t even know this. You can find this brand simply at your local sephora! I can say I will be buying the full bottle of this and add it to my daily skin re gamin. Thank you for reading and I hope you all enjoyed today’s post! If any of you have tried this product out let me know your thoughts about the product, or even if you haven’t if your going to try it out. Remember to like and comment I always love hearing from you all! Hope you all have a great relaxing weekend.

 

 

Farm House Fresh

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to another blog post ! Lucky you this week getting posts back to back. I am so excited to do this post as it is a product line I have tried awhile back and it doesn’t get out there much also because not much people know of it. But this is a line that can pretty much relate to everyone and to be honest its a pretty fun line.

Farm house fresh is a founded brand from its name of course, their ingredients is made from their fresh grown ingredients on the farm. This brand is a natural based skin care brand their farm house is based in the united states, 99.6% of the ingredients are healthy and fresh. Story behind the brand itself !

All About Farmhouse Fresh

Being such an interesting brand, even for the green beauty space, the story behind FarmHouse Fresh is one to hear. Like many small, indie brands, FarmHouse Fresh was created with one flagship product that went on to become the cornerstone of a full line of skin care products. Just over 10 years ago, FarmHouse Fresh launched an exfoliation trio with sea salt as the main ingredient. This exfoliation system was developed by FarmHouse Fresh founder Shannon McLinden to heal cracked heels. It was that one simple product that launched FarmHouse Fresh to almost instant success after it snagged a coveted feature on Oprah’s O-List. That achievement was just one of many with FarmHouse Fresh products scoring numerous nods from esteemed publications like Elle, Southern Living Magazine, and Redbook.

So aside from the fact that FarmHouse Fresh literally uses farm fresh ingredients, there are many things that make this brand so unique. FarmHouse Fresh princes itself on being a USA made product that specially crafts each and every one of its growing skin care line. Their message of farm life and freshness goes beyond their skin care products as evidenced by just a quick tour around their site. You’ll see that FarmHouse Fresh is dedicated to their farm and all the animals that live there.  – FarmHouseFresh 


Farm house fresh has collection of face, body, fragrance and bath products. They carry oils, exfoliates, lotions, creams, moisturisers, soaks, cleansers and much more. Farm house fresh boy oils are perfect to moisturiser the skin after a nice bath or shower, the unique formulation they have is created to lock in moisture. The oils each have a formulation of blended oils and each farm house fresh oil is 99.6% natural formulation. To achieve the best results with the oil is best to drop in a bath or just apply right after a shower. The farm house fresh lotions they have has a great formulation like aloe, shea butter that benefit the skin. They have a number of different scents like back country caramel, fresh melon, ginger sorbet and sweet cream.

The first time I ever tried this brand was back in college when I was studying spa management and this was sold in the college spa, and I personally was hooked on this brand. There products smell so good I purchased the melon scrub with vodka in it and the back country caramel lotion, that lotion was my all time favourite I must say. If you are looking for the all time organic brand that does the job and smells great this would be the one. I love how farm house fresh does their scrubs, their bourbon bubbler is infused with brown sugar and real Kentucky whiskey.

There is a watermelon basil vodkatini, which is watermelon, organic vodka and basil. This has watermelon seed oils with sugar and rice bran for a great exfoliation. The rasmopolitan which is raspberry and vodka, and sugar with rice bran oil. The raspberry extract and the vitamin E in it help hydrate the skin and the salt and sugar help lift away any dead skin cells on the skin. The brand has a great variety of products, you can look at here on their site Farmhousefreshgoods.com. I hope I had the answer to all your cleansing, exfoliating and skin needs if you would like to know more have some time to visit their site. Thank you for reading I hope you all have a great rest of our Wednesday ! Look out for Monday post which will be posted at 9am EST.

The best beauty advice I’ve ever received/given

Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post ! Happy Monday I hope you’re Monday morning is going well so far. Mine of course and full of sleep deprivation as always but got to keep the blogs going, I am doing so well keeping up this schedule. I knew the more I keep up my blogging the sooner or later I’d find a posting schedule.

For today’s blog post is beauty related, let’s talk about the best beauty advice I’d received or even given. To be honest I somewhat remember some advice but this is a broad subject but I’d do my best. This is all the advice I have been given…

  1. Keep a clean face before applying make up! Wash you faceThis removes all dirt and pollution from your face so you can have a fresh face before applying make up. And it also helps your make up apply better !
  2. Match your foundation from your neck not your hand This is such an great advice I received in college in my make up program, your neck is actually the closet tone to your face NOT your hand.
  3. Don’t leave your make up brushes in the bathroomI mean how many of us wash our brushes and lay it down and sometimes don’t think to actually put it somewhere to dry? I know I’ve done it. Your going to want to lay your brushes near a window or dry clean area, when leaving it in the bathroom your brushes is actually picking up a lot of bathroom particles in the air and then this get applied to your face !
  4. Keep your makeup brushes clean frequentlyThis one is a hard one for me but yes the best thing to to constantly keep up with keeping your brushes clean. A clean brushes equals a clean pimple free face.
  5. Not everyone needs to contour their nose ! And contour the sides NOT the tip of the nose ! I know this one is going to be a hard one for a lot but yeah not all nose shapes need to be contoured, this is one of the best tips I’ve received in college. We all have different shapes so why do they all need to be contoured the same?

Now for the makeup advice I have given or most likely would have given to someone …

  1. Take care of you skin first then makeup Taking care of your face first helps achieve the best make up application and also helps keep your skin healthy.
  2. Apply mascara to your lashes not your falseThis is a trick I actually came up with (in lash post), applying mascara first helps your false blend in well with your natural lash and also maximises your false lash life span.
  3. Applying caster oil or Vaseline at night to lashes or brows help them growYup, its true ! These two products help moisturise your lashes and brows and when applied often your lashes and brows grow quit a bit.
  4. Brushing your brows often stimulates your brows to growThis practice helps stimulate the root and when done often this allows growth, am one to say it has worked for me.
  5. Have a separate towel for your face to dont use your “body” towelThis I actually never thought of, but if using the same towel for everywhere on your body and then used to wipe your face this can actually cause acne and pimples etc.

I hope some of these advice was helpful in some way, I am so sorry on late posting. I have been so busy this morning, I do now have a consistent posting schedule which are Mondays and Wednesdays. I will always post these days unless I got an extra blog post but I would let you know. Thanks for reading I hope you all have a great Monday !

Acne Scaring – How to diminish it!

Good afternoon everyone! and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday I hope everyone is having a great day so far? Here we are half way through the week already. For today blog post we will be digging into skincare and talking about a big issue for a lot of people, I’ve noticed working in the skin industry which is acne. For this post we will be looking into skin and at different segments to understand how skin works and the steps needed to diminish acne scaring.

So first things first the questions we always ask ourselves “how does acne scaring start?” and “why does it almost always leave a scar?” well now to answer these questions. There is different types of scaring their not all the same but acne scars most occur when acne occur and it is irritated before time. From picking to popping when it is not ready or it is inflamed or even when touching your face all the bacteria from you fingers get onto your skin this can lead to scaring, the best thing to do is to leave it alone and find the best products to assist your skin.

So the question now “how do I diminish my scars”, well to be honest with you all this is not going to just go over night. I can be honest again and tell you if you start with this and keep doing it you will see results, I am one to say it works I did have a few scars and now my face is pretty clear. We all know we always have dead skin cells on our skin and new skin cells are produced, and to get the cycle going and make sure we are on top of removing old skin cells the key to that is to always exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! This process removes the dead skin off your body and allows new skin cells to come, this is so important because the more you exfoliate the more overtime your pigmentation on your face will slowly but surely go. Make sure you know your skin type also this would help you determine in what exfoliate to get and also how many times a week to exfoliate and help you start a skin regimen. Keeping up this process will start shedding away those scars and your face will start glowing, and trust me your skin will thank you.

The next thing you want to keep up is your products, its not recommended to exfoliate and not apply product afterwords or even sunscreen/sunblock. When exfoliated your skin is exposed to the sun and pollution. Other ways of removing acne scars a bit of a faster way and skipping some steps for the process is more costly but someone who tried it I would recommend. The first one is having micro-dermabrasion done, this is a technique which someone is working with crystals. The top of the skin is peeled, this is a type of exfoliation on the skin which allows the skin to renew process (this treatment does not hurt lol) . I have had this treatment done more than once and given this treatment more than once I highly recommend this one. The next treatment which is great is chemical peels this is a treatment used to improve the appearance of your face, neck and even hands. So a mixture of a chemical fluid is applied to your face and this exfoliates the skin and causes the skin to soon peel off, and the new skin then comes through and is much more smoother. The next is laser skin resurfacing, its a skin resurfacing treatment that uses a laser to improve the appearance of the skin. This treatment treats minor facial flaws, by removing thin layers of the skin.

There is more medical treatments that’s can help improve the appearance of the skin, but of course I cannot go on and on. But for advice id recommend buying your favourite exfoliate and exfoliating as much as needed and following up with products and serums. That is it for Wednesday post there will be a new post up Monday, remember to comment & like even post questions I love always hearing from you all! I hope you have a great rest of your Wednesday.
