I miss doing Birchbox unboxings but with my latest move and other life changes, I haven’t been the best at fulfilling all my blog goals. April’s Birchbox came a few days ago and I feel somewhat more motivated and organized and thought, why not start sharing these again? However..I think my annual subscription is up..whoops! I’m not entirely sure if I’ll be re-subscribing but after what I got this month, I am so tempted to take the plunge and go for it!
If you’re interested, I did do a full unboxing on Instagram yesterday. You can check it out here under the “Unboxing” highlight!

As much as I love testing out new makeup day to day, there are a few things in my daily routine that I absolutely cannot go about! Some of these products are almost new to me aka have been using for two-ish months while some I’ve been hooked on for the longest time. I’ll be sharing a few items that have worked positively for me but do remember, my needs may be different from yours so what works best for me may not always be something you might enjoy.

Like most people, I suffered from horrible acne as a teenager. As an adult though, blemishes aren’t as frequent or intense as they used to be..most of the time. As a beauty enthusiast and blogger, I try TONS of different products frequently. While some, if not most, will work out for me – there are those few products that take me back to those high school acne times. After testing ZAPZYT’S line the last few weeks, I so wish I had these products back when I was younger!

Fortunately (and unfortunately – who likes to break out?!) I had a really bad reaction to some makeup wipes I was testing literally days before ZAPZYT landed on my doorstep so I was fully able to test out all the products and write about my zitful experience the last few weeks.
Let’s chat skin! I’ve been obsessed with skin care for as long as I can remember. I was that teen with horrible acne and picked literally every single zit and blackhead that popped up on my body, leaving me with HORRIBLE acne scars, some of which I’m still working to get rid of today. Because of what my skin went through in the past, I often have people ask me what I did to get my skin more clear and healthy.
I’ll be sharing three ways that help me achieve the clear, healthy skin I desire. Do keep in mind though, everyone has unique skin and what works for me may not work for you. The following are general tips but can be customized to your needs. If you do have more serious skin concerns, I recommend speaking to a dermatologist.
Today I’ll be sharing my skincare routine that allows me to achieve clear, healthy skin. I’ll be listing products I use day and night but I want to mention beforehand that the products I use often change, especially seasonally. I also test out a TON of skincare products to see if there’s anything better than what I use now. Skincare is something incredibly personal and unique to each and every individual so don’t take this as specific products you should be using. You can take this as types of products you might want to incorporate into your skincare routine such as masks, toners, serums, etc.
A little info about my skin type – I have combo skin that is sensitive and acne prone. Besides looking for products that aid in my skin type, I also look to include anti-aging products in my daily regimen. If you have a similar skin type to me, some of these products may intrigue you!

Winter is amongst us which means my lips are more chapped than usual. I am always on the search for a product that will moisturize and protect my lips without leaving a greasy residue. When I heard of Herpecin L’s Lip Balm, I was immediately intrigued by the claims. It claims to provide REAL relief with REAL ingredients from cold sores, dry and chapped lips, as well as an SPF 30.
Let me start off by saying I seem to always have cracked and chapped lips. I feel like I’ve used almost every lip balm on the planet, drugstore and high end, but I haven’t been extremely satisfied with my experiences. I am also super picky when it comes to anything skincare related, I don’t settle for average results.

Ladies, I’m sure most, if not all, of you will agree when I say getting my period is something I NEVER look forward to. Mood swings, cramps, bloating, and fatigue are just a few PMS symptoms I dread during my cycle. I always thought there would be NOTHING that could make me feel any type of positive emotion when it comes to periods until I heard of The PMS Package.
In short, The PMS Package is a monthly subscription service that delivers a box full of goodies straight to your doorstep during your cycle! Use code STRESSFREE to get up to 35% off your first box during the month of December. This is a non affiliate code, just FYI!
