FACE SUNSCREEN SHOWDOWN

FACE SUNSCREEN SHOWDOWN

There are so many facial sunscreens on the market, you can go into Walgreens and see an entire wall of SPF and pages of options on Sephora, each promising something different. Finding the perfect SPF can feel like a chore. I put the top 5 high-end and the top 5 drug-store sunscreens to the test.

For each SPF, I have listed out the cost, the SPF rating, and the notable promises or ingredients. I tested out the wear of each product using the same makeup technique and full coverage foundation. All of the SPFs were put under the same conditions to really test the wear through out the day. I also put each product through a water test. In this test, I only had the SPF on my skin and waited for the product to sink in before splashing my face with water and rubbing my eyes to see how it would fare. Lastly, I will give you my overall opinion, I will be brutally honest and let you know my thoughts.

I will be dishing the dirt on which SPFs actually hold up to their promises and which are a total waste of money!

THERE’S A 2019 SEPHORA SUMMER VIB SALE?

Apparently, there is a Summer Sephora VIB sale? Did anyone else not know about this? I thought there were only two sales a year with Sephora, so I guess I missed something. I wasn’t aware until I received a flyer in the mail a few days ago. Anyways, as shocking as it sounds there isn’t anything that I will be trying out on this sale, but you better believe I will be restocking on all my favorites! I have found a lot of items that I love and others that, frankly, just aren’t worth it. All of the items in my restock are SO worth it! In efforts to get the best bang for my buck I will only be repurchasing things I love. If you haven’t tried these items, I recommend getting them while the sale last. You will notice that I won’t be purchasing any new makeup, I don’t wear a ton of make up on a daily basis and therefore don’t need to restock very often, but I will be loading up on skincare! I have included all of the info you need to get in on this sale, all of the links are shoppable, you are welcome! Get Ready, Get Set, SHOP!

20 BARRETTES YOU NEED IN YOUR LIFE

I started seeing barrettes about a month or so ago, never did I think this trend would make a comeback. I had a million of these growing up, all different shapes and shades of pink. Even though this trend came out of no where, I am all of the sudden obsessed. Instead of shades of pink I am looking for a stylish gold or, as always, leopard print. Shockingly, when I looked up barrettes there weren’t many options on my favorite boutique websites. None the less, I went on a hunt for the perfect barrettes for you. Below are the categories of barrettes that you are sure to find at least one hair piece you will love.

WHY YOU NEED COLLAGEN

WHY YOU NEED COLLAGEN

I was very interested in the idea of taking a collagen supplement after I had seen a few Instagram ads and had seen some of my favorite influencers talking about it. I am not into taking supplements, other than my daily vitamins, because I have never really noticed a difference or believed the marketing behind them. Now that I am approaching 25, I have started to notice some fine lines surfacing on my forehead and under my eyes. So when I heard about taking collagen, something essential to maintain youth, I was definitely curious. I wanted to learn more to see if it really works.
