Eye Cream I’ve Been Using

Since growing our family I’ve also grown my eye bags and a few wrinkles.  Actually, I thought I had some major baggage and darkness pre-children, but my eye bags have taken on a whole new zip code.  Sometimes, the puffy little buggers seem to have a zip code other than my house!  Not cool.  Thankfully, there’s a new eye cream I’ve been using that has helped migrate my bags back to their appropriate zip code: VIIcode T2 Oxygen Eye Cream.  Let me tell you a little bit about it! read more

What's in My Beauty Bag: Spring Skincare Edition



I have been seeing skincare products with rose this and rose that everywhere, so I decided to grab this Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rosewater when I ran out of my favorite mist.  I actually love it, and I think I will alternate between the two from now on.  It’s super soothing and seems to reduce any redness, and I love hydrating my skin with it right after cleansing.  Sometimes I use it as a toner at night. read more


Look Like You Went to the Dermatologist with MD Complete

Give me all the skincare.  That’s my motto.  So when MD Complete wanted to partner with  me, I jumped on the opportunity!  Dr. Zelickson created MD Complete so that people can enjoy professional skincare without having to visit a dermatologist.  Today, I’m discussing my experience with MD Complete’s anti-aging line.

June Jacobs Lip Renewal SPF 50

This balm had me at SPF 50.  I have damaged my lips so much over the years by skipping sun protection.  I learned my lesson the hard way in The Bahamas when I woke up with a humungous lip!!  Turns out I had sunburn, but I looked like I had gotten stung by a bee!  No thank you! read more
