I recently was on the hunt for a good toner that will condition and tighten my face up. It’s the summer time and NO ONE wants to be wearing heavy thick acne lotions but you still want to be seen with flawless even out skin. I finally found something that leaves my face feeling mosturized but is not a lotion so I don’t have to worry about my face melting and sweating later on. Thayers Witch Hazel contain NO ALCOHOL (so you don’t get that dried out feeling on your face) and it contains aloe vera that keeps your face feeling fresh and moisturized. They have a bunch of different scents you can get like rose, mint and lavender but I went with the lavender just because it has a calming affect.I picked this up at Whole Foods and I have to say its definitely a SWEET purchase!

Mac Cosmetics recently dropped a MATTE BLACK lipstick that I was dying to get my hands on but like always, It was sold out the same day. They debuted it on Black Friday and the shade is called “Haute Core”.  Anybody know where I can get it ?

TIPS FOR Combination/Oily SKIN AND REMOVING MAKE-UP

No shocker here: Sleeping in makeup can set the scene for breakouts and congested pores with oily skin.

Step 1: Make Acids Your Friend
Remove your eye makeup, then wash with a salicylic-acid or glycolic-acid cleanser to get rid of surface oil.

Step 2: Grab a Power Tool
Exfoliation prevents clogs and zits. A motorized microdermabrasion kit uses tiny crystals and a moving head to buff dead cells.

Step 3: Go Deeper
Unclog pores with a purifying clay mask—it’s less drying than mud and draws out impurities.

Step 4: Hydrate
A salicylic-acid-spiked moisturizer lightly hydrates while simultaneously gently clearing pores.
