Baby Skincare Needs

The summer heatwave has officially hit us! It was like in the blink of an eye it went from rainy days to scorching temperatures! Hot temperatures can be really tricky with babies, especially when you have summer travel plans. We are getting ready to head to California later this month and I am thinking ahead for full days at theme parks, beach days, and hot weather. I can honestly say that creating sponsored content with a company hasn’t ever made as much as an impact as working with Baby Dove has. It has drastically changed my toddler’s skin and I am just so grateful!

Dove Baby Review

While it is important to plan our outfits, snacks, and entertainment for the trip, it’s just as important to think about our skin in a different environment. My toddler’s skin has always been really sensitive and we’ve battled issues with it for most of her life. It wasn’t until we started using products from Baby Dove and changed the type of diapers she was using that we have seen major improvements in her skin. [Read more…]

Using Facial SPF

I turn 30 in a couple of weeks. I had the sad realization that I needed to start focusing more on my skin a few years ago. My skin wasn’t the youthful skin that it once was and I needed to focus on it more. I started by using facial SPF, something I hadn’t ever done! It was a hard adjustment to make because it made my skin feel greasy and my makeup didn’t stay on very well. I have used a few brands over the years, but I honestly couldn’t ever find one that I loved. That’s why I was so excited to learn that Olay Whips, a moisturizer I have already fallen in love with, made SPF 25 moisturizer!

Springtime Baby Skincare

There isn’t a lot of focus on baby skincare, unless there is an obvious problem with their skin. I learned this the hard way when my baby’s skin was showing signs of being quite sensitive. She would get bumps on her skin from lotions, wipes, and body wash. It was so sad! Most of these things could have been easily ignored, which is why it is so important to pay attention to your baby’s skin. They aren’t able to tell us if something is wrong with their skin, so it is important to really pay attention to how their skin is reacting to any new product you are using. That is why I was thrilled to partner with Baby Dove on this sponsored post. We have been using their products and they are working wonders on my baby’s sensitive skin.
The changing of seasons can also bring a lot of change to a baby’s skin. The more time spent outside will bring a lot of new experiences for a baby, and that can bring new challenges for their skin as well. It is something that we, as parents, need to be aware of.

Thankfully, we have found that Baby Dove products work wonders on my baby’s sensitive skin! Baby Dove cleansers and lotions are made with 100% skin-natural nutrients for delicate baby skin. This has definitely been apparent as we have used Baby Dove products. [Read more…]

Combating Winter Skin Problems

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

My skin gets incredibly dry during the winter. I know that this is an issue that a lot of people deal with. My skin is dry all year round, so the extremely dry months are really hard on my skin. I have tried a lot of moisturizers in the past. Some of the issues I have experienced with moisturizers have been that they are too thick, sticky, or they don’t give me the moisture that I need.

That is why I have really enjoyed using the Olay Total Effects Whip! It is helping me combat my winter skin problems. I have been using it for about a month now and my skin is feeling more moisturized than it has felt during the winter months in years past.

Typically, my skin will get really dry on and around my nose, on my smile lines, and on my chin. Ironically, they are places where many people have oily skin issues! My skin will get dry and flaky, making it so my foundation looks terrible over the top! That is what I have experienced for years! But this year has been much different. [Read more…]

Facial Cleansing Wipes Reviews: Battle of the Brands

Ever wonder what the best facial cleansing wipes are? Do you find yourself searching online for reviews of different products and wish you could just find a friend who had tried a whole bunch of products that could compare them all of you? Well, you are in luck because I am going to be THAT friend for you! I am SO excited to announce a new series I am bringing you… Battle of the Brands! I will be coming once a month with a category and will be testing several brands of that product. Some of them you can look forward to seeing in the future include drugstore foundation, mascara, long wear lipstick, and concealer. To kick things off, I tested facial cleansing wipes!

So, how does it work? I came up with my own little scoring system to grade each of the facial cleansing wipes on more than me just saying, “This one was good” or “This one was no good”. I tested [Read more…]

Vanilla Mint Sugar Scrub

I absolutely love how my skin feels when I am exfoliating regularly. It leaves skin feeling baby soft! I used to buy different scrubs to use in the shower, but they can be quite expensive. The good  news is that making your own scrub costs very little and takes less than 15 minutes. It is a major win! I love making different varieties to try, but I also love making them to give as gifts! This vanilla mint sugar scrub is one of my favorite scrubs to make. The scent is really soothing and delicious!

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!

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!
