28 Day Challenge Results

This post is sponsored by Olay. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. #Olay28Day #ad

About a month ago, I took the Olay 28 Day Challenge. The challenge was to use their products for 28 days and see if I could notice any difference in my skin over that time, by incorporating a few new products and creating that healthy habit each day. My skin goes through phases of being pretty bad, but when I first started the challenge my skin wasn’t horrible. I didn’t have a lot of problems with breaking out, but my skin did feel very dry and it just looked tired!

Calming Bedtime Bath Salts

With a baby who can’t decide if she wants to sleep or not, getting calm and relaxed before bedtime is really important! I need my sleep to be quality sleep. One way that I can really calm down is taking a bath before bed. It feels nice to just be able to lay down and relax. I love using bath salts to really aid in calming my brain and body down before going to bed. These calming bedtime bath bombs do just that!

Over the last couple of years, I have really started to focus on treating my skin with more natural products than I ever have before. I have really enjoyed finding products that aren’t necessarily the most popular things you find on the beauty shelves, but are better for my body!

Coconut Lavender After Swim Leave In Conditioner

One topic I get asked a lot about is hair care when it comes to swimming. Honestly, every head of hair is so different when it comes to the way it responds to chlorine! It is hard to give general advice when it comes to swim hair care, but one thing that is consistent with everyone is the importance of moisturizing after you swim! Whether you are swimming in chlorine, fresh water, or salt water, moisturizing is so important! I have tried several leave in conditioners and homemade leave in conditioners in the past and finally found a recipe that I think is ideal for swimming (or really any time!)

Leave in conditioner is great for a number of reasons. Obviously it is giving your hair more moisture, but it also is a great detangler. Having a spray leave in conditioner helps to distribute the product, without it being too heavy, too!  [Read more…]

I have learned throughout the years that I care more and more about what ingredients I am putting in and on my body. I used to think that you could only control what food you put in your body, but I have loved learning more about homemade cosmetics to put on my body as well!

Simple Skincare

’m sharing #Shortlist in my life as part of a Shortlist sponsored series for Socialstars™

It is no secret that I love beauty products. I love trying new products! There aren’t many products that I continually purchase. Not because I don’t love them, but because I love trying new things! Because my skin is constantly going through changing routines as I try different products, I have been on the look for products with really simple ingredients. I have tried a few that just haven’t felt up to par with previous skincare products that I have used, but I finally found a simple skincare system that I have been really enjoying!
