Essence spotting!

Spotted ... Essence's new Cookies and Cream summer collection.  A small collection of nudes and corals perfect for that summer glow.  I picked up the baked blush in Cakepop, that's Top. Strange name but a beautiful coral.  

I've tried my fair share of Essence goodies.  Some of them are great and others are misses.  Overall the affordable price tag that always intrigues me to keep buying.  The blush is silky and smooth, a touch powdery but does lasts all day.  It looks beautiful on with just the right amount of sheen.  For $3.99 it's  a hit!  If you're looking for a cheap and cheerful coral blush that won't break the bank ... This is it!

Daily Randomness:
-OMG I have been loving Cover Girl's Ready Set Gorgeous foundation & powder.  Full Review coming soon!!
-just purchased the perfect set of yellow bedside lamps from Target this weekend.  Love them!  Just what my bedroom needed! 
-arrrg! I'm looking to update my summer wardrobe but can't seem to find anything to buy!  Is it just me?  Are you also feeling the same?

Playing with oil!

Yup, i did it! I jumped on the oil band wagon!  I've heard great things about oils but have always been afraid to venture down that path due to my oily nature.  A month ago I stumbled upon a great youtube channel and thought OMG she has amazing skin!!  A few videos later, I discovered her secret - Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Avocado oil.  Shortly after watching her videos I decided it was time to take the plunge; I want beautiful skin!  I picked up a bottle of cold pressed extra virgin avocado oil from the Superstore for under $10 and have been using it every night.  Avocado oil is high in vitamins A & E as well as contains natural sterolins that aid with aging.  I am on week 4 and yet to see the benefits.  I am optimistic and will report back!

Daily Randomness:
- I am suffering my first sunburn of the summer!  Thank goodness for Equate's Aloe Vera after sun spray. First time I have ever seen Aloe in a spray bottle!! 
- It's open bass season!! Fishing with the Mr was a huge success!  Caught a bass on virtually every cast! That's my kind of fishing!
-Getting ready to place an order on Make Up Geek.  Have you tried any of Marlena's shadows?

Backacne Tips

Hormones!!  That one word that causes sleepless nights and red pimply friends.  I have been struggling with backacne this year and with hot summer days fast approaching I have been in a frantic pickle.  Gone are the days I rocked a tube top or a camisole.  My pimply mess of a back has ruined my summer wardrobe.  I know I may sound a touch dramatic but living with backacne is tough, especially in the summer.  If you are suffering with BA like me, dry those tears girlfriend we can conquer this together. Here are a few tips that have helped me.

1- Clip your hair up in the shower.  I like to leave conditioner in my hair until the end of my shower.  I now clip my hair up after I have conditioned and continue with my showering business.  When it's time, I let my hair down and rinse away.  This little technique has limited the amount of new breakouts. 

2- Invest in a back sponge.  Head over to Dollarama and pick yourself up a back sponge (the shower puff on a stick kind).  Gently exfoliate every shower.  I use my puff back sponge with Neutrogena oil free acne wash with 2% Salicylic acid every shower.  

3- Get your tan on!   Say buh bye to dark acne scars!  A little colour makes a whole lotta difference ... visually.  

4- Invest in racer back anythings!  You'll stay cool in the hot summer sun but still have the BA covered up.  Last week I picked up a whole colour roll of racer back tanks at Target.  Old Navy also has a couple of built up halter dresses that work beautifully with BA. 

I know these tips are not revolutionary but they have been life altering for me.  I'm still hunting to find a BA bathing suit solution.  If have any tips let me know.  Sharing is caring!
