Show & Tell | Beauty Routine

 Eek! I can't believe I am about to share my beauty routine with you all, or I should say lack of routine :/
Hopefully you can all give me some tips, product ideas, etc. when we are all done :)

So this is where I was going to have a little video.
Not happening. Lol!
Maybe I will add it later on :)

So every morning I wake up, put a spoonful of coconut oil in my mouth and hop in the shower.
Oh yeah, I joined the oil pulling fun last year and I love it!
But that is a story for another day.

I wash my face in the shower with Oil of Olay face wash and every other morning I use my Clarisonic Mia 2 with that same face wash.

After my shower I apply Simple protecting light moisturizer all over my face.
I let that sit for a few minutes before I begin applying my makeup for the day.
Currently I am using tinted moisturizer as foundation, but in the winter months I switch back the BareMinerals Bare Skin foundation.
Throw on my eyeliner, shadow, mascara, and a little bit of bronzer and I am done.

I usually walk in the door from work and immediately wash my face to get my makeup off.
I either use the Oil of Olay wash again or my Kroger version of Cetaphil.
No fancy make removers for me unless I am wearing that Revlon mascara (usually reserved for special occasions).
If my skin is feeling dry I put a little more of the Simple lotion on my face, but if not I just leave it as is.
Before bed I add some of that lotion if I didn't do it earlier and head to bed.
On days that stress has gotten the better of me and I see some unpleasant sights (ie. pimples) I dab a bit of honey on my face where needed and go to sleep.
My face has typically cleared up by the next morning :)

It's that simple my friends!

I put this photo in my post about Firmoo, but I figured I would include it here too.
This is just me.
No makeup, no crazy lighting, no filter.

  1. you'll have to tell us more about the oil pulling and if you've noticed a difference!
    I lighten up my foundation for summer too... or wear none at all, which isn't always pretty lol

  2. I started the oil pulling and didn't last more than 2 weeks. Are you noticing a difference??

  3. Make an oil pulling post! I tried it once, I would love to know the difference you saw.

    I need to try to simple moisturizer now!

  4. I love using honey but never knew it could clear up blemishes! Also I would love to learn more about your pulling technique!

  5. I used to use the Revlon mascara and loved it..completely forgot about it. Got to pick some up now! The packaging alone is worth it :)

  6. Love it, and I want a video! :) I've never heard of honey, i just imagine ants finding my face and then...ewww...you get the idea! And yes to a oil pulling post...like tomorrow please, thanks, hehe.
