My Favorite Beauty Products

After years and years of searching for a daily beauty routine that requires minimal effort yet is effective, I have finally found a solution that works for me. I don’t have an extensive beauty routine nor do I wear makeup on a daily basis, but there are a few products that I love.

1.Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser. I have very dry skin and Oxford has notoriously hard water, so keeping my skin moisturized is always a struggle.  I use this cleanser every day after I shower and it does wonders! You can choose how much of the cleanser you wash off for the degree of moisturizing that you need (I just blot it with a damp washcloth and keep most of it on).

2.  Formula 10.0.6 Face Mask. I started using this face mask twice a week a few months ago and I can really tell a difference in my skin. It does a great job of keeping my skin smooth and bright. I also use the Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser right after taking the mask off to keep my skin hydrated.

3. Covergirl Matte BB Cream. I have used many different BB creams, but this matte one is amazing. It isn’t too thick and goes on so smoothly that you can’t even tell that I’m wearing makeup! I use the 510 or 520 color (depending on how pale I am), but it comes in five different shades.

4.NYX Matte Lip Cream. I used to never put anything on my lips, but then I found these matte lip creams and that completely changed. I am obsessed with these and sometimes I just throw one on with no makeup. Also, the names are the names of major cities all around the world (Istanbul is my favorite (and pictured above)!).

My routine slightly changes throughout the year, but I always have these products on hand!

Stay Fabulous,

Finds of the Week: 4/21/16

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope everyone is having a great week. I’ve been busy studying for my last two exams of the semester before finals and trying to enjoy the beautiful weather! Here are some of my favorite finds/ articles of the week:

1.New 20 Dollar Bills. Most of you have probably already heard about this, but new $20 bills are being made with Harriet Tubman’s face on them. In addition, other bills will have pictures of women as well. I think this is very cool! Check out this article to learn more.

2.Monogrammed Linens. This Etsy shop has the most beautiful monogrammed linens. From pillow shams to cocktail napkins, they have it all!

3.  Face Masks. I just read this article from College Fashion about the best face masks for all types of skin. I have dry skin and face masks tend to dry my face out even more, so I can’t wait to try out the masks that they recommend for dry skin!

4. Robotic Horse Lift. Researchers in Saskatchewan are working on developing a robotic lift to help horses recover after fracturing limbs. Many horses can’t make it through recovery since they are so large and often develop secondary problems, so this has the potential to save many lives. Read more about this innovation here.

5. Here is a cute foal to make your Thursday a little brighter!
