Skin care please…

Hello LoveBuds,

Happy new year, how is it wherever you are?I tend to ask this question quite a lot because the weather here is colder than the north pole! anyways, I’m not here to whine about the weather again..im here to check your skincare! it’s cold, and the rash heartless weather tends to damage our Beloved skin, so basically during cold weather we need something really intense to break the  dryness and the redness.

I use several products, but only few are true to what they’re supposed to do..and I will share with you my glory wall products .

ORIGINS Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin’s Thirst

This Gem not only helps replenish your skin! it also helps with any dry patches, dry elbows..we know that the ski need to be well hydrated during the winter season..this product, which you can use as a night time mask or day time facial lotion. It does feel thick when you put it on, but just give it time and it dries down. I LOVE the moisture this gives my skin, especially needed during the cold weather. Overall really happy with it! Retail price :27$.

JOSIE MARANPure Argan Milk™ Intensive Hydrating Treatment

this serum fully absorbs to the skin, my skin feels soft and radiant..I usually wear it before makeup, it helps with smoothening out my foundation, the one down side it the packaging, the dropper doesn’t really make a good job at dispensing the product..the texture is milky and kind of thick but it doesn’t feel greasy at all. it affordable compared  to other similar serums. retails 56$.

Be bold..2018

Hello lovebuds,

It’s already 2018 12:05am!! Although there isn’t much difference..but i wanted to share with you some of my resolutions for this year! 2017 was full of surprises..some are good ..most are bad..but as we say : what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger! This past month had made a stronger person..it opened my eyes to certain realities that i was kinda under judging before..but no worries..i kinda know now when to hold them..know when to fold them and for sure i know when to run away!

I hope you achieve whatever you want to do…you will certainly achieve it if you put some effort into it!

As i said earlier, i learned a lot during the last month, and the most important thing is i don’t want to be around negative people, or people who are full of crap, I’d rather be alone then..and i also realized that my sky had become clearer! So long bloggers!

the Honey dew me Up Serum and Primer, still having mixed feeling about it. the applicator isn’t ideal for this product. which makes it hard to apply.

it tends to dry quickly.. which im not sure if it’s a good or bad thing. sometimes i feel like it dries my skin out.

gonna give it one more chance. and i’ll you know.
