Hello Loves!

Skincare is an important part of my daily routine since I tend to breakout easily and as a fashion blogger, a goal of mine is to always look fresh in all the photos I take. My skin is very sensitive, which is why I like to keep my skincare routine simple and natural. These past few weeks my skin has been feeling fresh and glowy due to Mary Kay’s natural-certified skincare line, Mary Kay Naturally™. The skincare line consists of four products: Mary Kay Naturally™ Purifying Cleanser, Moisturizing Stick, Exfoliating Powder, and Nourishing Oil. These products work so well on my sensitive skin, which is why I can’t wait to jump into the nitty gritty of why I love each product!

Mary Kay Naturally™ Purifying Cleanser is infused with skin-soothing cornflower floral water and sweet almond oil. The cleanser removes impurities and leaves my skin feeling nourished and soothed. For best results, I use the product with a cotton pad on damp skin.

Mary Kay Naturally™ Moisturizing Stick is made with candelilla wax and beeswax, which helps relieve my dry spots, especially with the changing seasons. The stick is suitable for face and body, however, if you plan to use the stick in multiple areas, I recommend having a separate stick dedicated to each area.

Mary Kay Naturally™ Exfoliating Powder gently exfoliates the skin by lifting away complexion-dulling dead skin cells. I use this product at least once a week!

Mary Kay Naturally™ Nourishing Oil leaves my skin feeling hydrated and contains a blend of sweet almond, olive and sesame oils. I apply this all over, including on the face, cuticles, elbows, even ends of my hair. This multiple purpose nourishing oil is a favorite!

At least 90% of ingredients in the collection are derived from natural sources, processed in accordance with the COSMOS standard, and all products are free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, synthetic dyes, SLS/SLES. All of these products are available for purchase on, where you can connect with a local Independent Beauty Consultant.

Here are 3 of my own personal skincare tips to avoid a facial breakout:

  1. Don’t touch your face. There was a point where I touched my face all the time a few months back and that caused a huge breakout that took weeks to heal from. Since we use our hands often, they collect dirt, oils, and germs that can cause major breakouts if placed on the face.
  2. Use warm water to cleanse the face before and after the cleanser step (this will open your pores to wash out the dirt and oil), however, before putting on moisturizer, wash your face once more with cold water to close your pores. This will help tighten your pores before putting on moisturizer.
  3. Eat healthier meals. I have noticed a difference in my skin when I started to make healthier choices with my meals. This doesn’t mean you can’t have a burger and fries once in a while, but to give your body the nutrients it needs to help sustain a healthy glow.

Now that I’ve shared how amazing each product is, I thought I’d give a little back story about Mary Kay and why I support this company. Mary Kay is a brand with purpose, built by women for women. I’m all for women empowerment and knowing that Mary Kay is always looking for ways to help women be the best version of themselves is truly amazing.

Thank you so much for reading today’s post! I hope Mary Kay can help you build your confidence in your own skin like it has done for me. Have a wonderful day!

The Perfect Feminine Perfume | Skylar

The Perfect Feminine Perfume | Skylar
Hello Loves!

This blog post is sponsored by Skylar. All opinions are my own.

For the month of May, Skylar sent over their new ‘Vintage Rose’ perfume. It is the perfect sweet, bubbly perfume for all my girly gals out there! I love the ‘Magic Bloom’ perfume sent to me last month, however, ‘Vintage Rose’ is more of my scent. I remember my sister sniffing ‘Vintage Rose’ and the first words that came out of her mouth was, “Yep, this is you”. Perfume is more than a scent, it is a sense of identity. I love that ‘Vintage Rose’ has become a part of my everyday story, especially since I can relate to ‘her’ story.

Skylar provides the best perfumes that are naturally made! I have tested out their Scent Club membership for two months now and my experience have exceeded all expectations. Each month, a new perfume is created and given a story to connect with consumers. “Vintage Rose” celebrates the friendship between two women who support one another through everything unconditionally.

If you love to try out new perfumes like me, definitely check out Skylar’s Scent Club to receive a new roller perfume each month. These monthly perfumes are limited edition. Make sure you either sign up to be a member or purchase the product before the end of the month. The last day to purchase ‘Vintage Rose’ is May 31st, grab one before it’s gone!

It’s one thing having your period, but it’s another getting rid of the period odor. I’m constantly worried that my odor is spreading like wildfire throughout the day. In situations like these, I am very thankful for Summer’s Eve® products, which helps conveniently decrease odor smell in the vaginal area.  Their products are: pH balanced, can be used throughout the day for an all day freshness, and are gynecologist-tested.

I received my Summer’s Eve® products on the exact day I started my period, which allowed me to test the products from my heaviest days to my lightest days. The products helped reduce my period odor and made me feel fresh throughout the day. I love that the scent is light and fresh. Their products are available in 3 forms: 5oz No-Rinse Cleansing Foam, 24ct Softpack Cleansing Cloths, and 14ct Individually Wrapped Cleansing Cloths.

  • Summer’s Eve® FreshCycle™ Cleansing Cloths
    • An easy and safely wipe away cleansing cloth that is convenient, Flush Friendly™* and lightly scented so you can get a quick boost of freshness whenever you need it.   (*refer to product label for flushing instructions)

    • These are specifically formulated for periods. They are individually-wrapped, flush friendly™* cloths that offers a quick boost of freshness from home to the workplace and everywhere in between. You can simply add them to your bag and go! (*refer to product label for flushing instructions)
  • Summer’s Eve® FreshCycle™ No-rinse Cleansing Foam
    • You don’t have to wait to hop in the shower to clean up. Simply add one to two pumps of Summer’s Eve® FreshCycle™ No-Rinse Cleansing Foam to a few sheets of folded toilet paper and cleanse away – no need to rinse! It’s the perfect way to pump up your freshness when you need it most.

As a fashion blogger I’m always on the go and around people. I will admit that my period odor does make me feel less than fresh in the clothes I wear or how I go about my day. When I started to take care of my period days with the best products from Summer’s Eve®, I noticed not only a hygiene difference, but also a confidence boost. With Summer’s Eve® products, I’ll never have to worry about period odor again.
