A silicone face brush? The FOREO LUNA ain’t ordinary.

FOREO LUNA brush

Oh, hey girls! And guys! Sooooo…I’m back featuring another FOREO item and this time this is their skincare brush called the FOREO LUNA. Like the ISSA, I had my eyes on this baby at first glance and was thrilled to get the opportunity to review it via iFabbo.

FOREO LUNA

Now, I know what you’re thinking. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I have a very close relationship with a brand that starts with Clari and rhymes with bobonic. Said relationship is still very strong and kickin’ and chances are we won’t be breaking up any time soon. I wanted to reallllly focus on the LUNA’s attributes without comparing it to similar products out there. And let’s face it – a silicone facial brush and and a facial brush with an oscillating head are VERY different. So, let’s jump right in. Here are some features you should know about Lady LUNA.

I Don’t Smell Like A Goat Anymore. Thanks Armpit Detox!

Armpit Detox

My armpits have issues. And no, that isn’t code for anything else. It’s pretty literal. I have #pitproblems, y’all. While most of you can shave and apply deodorant all willy nilly, I have to practically spent a good 20-30 minutes A WEEK caring for my extra sensitive pit area. I know, it’s crazy. I’ve recently come across the idea of detoxing my armpits and the idea sounded so bizarre (and genius) that I just had to share it with you fine folk.

Armpit Detox

Because who doesn’t want to read a post about armpit detoxing, right? Things you should know…

  • I don’t use traditional deodorants and haven’t for years.
  • I use this stuff.
  • I don’t shave.
  • I get my pits waxed and maintain by trimming.
  • I prevent razor bumps with this stuff.
  • I moisturize and cleanse my pits with an exfoliating glove and this stuff.
  • I moisturize nightly with this stuff.

Pamper Thyself and Do A Weekly Mask

Girl. My face has been a hot mess, lately. I’m not blaming it on the pregnancy, but actually…I am far more attractive THIS time around than I was with Elle. With Elle, I cringed every time I looked in the mirror. My issues this go ’round are mainly due to my laziness and lack of pampering. A few weeks back, Clinique sent me some goodies and I ignored them up until last week when I realized it was time for some skin love.

Clinique masks

Look. I don’t care who you are. PAMPER THYSELF! You deserve it. You need it. Your body, your sanity and your life will thank you for it. I don’t want to hear that “OMG, I’m a mom and don’t have time.” crap. Bull, girl. Because even if it means waking up 10 minutes earlier to do something for YOU, it most certainly can be done. You are worth it. You better recognize. And while I do pamper myself regularly, it had been a while since I treated myself to a facial. And it was starting to look like it, too. Shame. So I pulled out Clinique’s Pore Refining Charcoal Mask.

St. Ives, Puerto Rico and My Summer Beauty Life

St. Ives

This is a sponsored post brought to you by St. Ives and M Booth. By the time you read this, I’ll be prepping for a trip to Puerto Rico. Yes, girl. For an actual vacation. I don’t even plan to take my laptop with me which you know says A LOT. It’s time. It is loooong overdo and while us Floridians have been baking in warmer weather for months now, Esposo will literally have to drag me off of the beach when it’s time to check out.

Fresh Hydration Lotion

I’ve been packing for said trip since last week and included in my luggage are these St. Ives Fresh Hydration Spray Lotions. I’ve bragged about these before on Instagram and uh yeah…I’m still bragging. Nothing says “I need some moisturizaion but don’t have time to slather myself” like a spray lotion. And especially one from St. Ives. Formulated to replenish moisture into skin, St. Ives has given us a Spray lotion with lovely subtle notes and natural moisturizers. It’s lightweight enough to wear during the day but you’ll be surprised at how well it keeps the ash and dry skin at bay.

Jolen and A Hair Free Summer

I’m a hairy beast, y’all. And don’t think this is a complaint. I’m not one of those women that needs to have a hair-less body. I completely stop shaving my legs during the cooler months and have no problem with the inch long hurr on my arms. It is what it is, ya know? However, in the summer, you won’t see me sporting hairy under arms, a visible ‘stache and beard and a bikini line that looks like a forest is bustin’ through. No shame in my girls who do sport those things but hey…it’s not for me. And this is why I wax, tweeze, thread, pluck and shave.

Jolen Facial Hair Remover

Buuuut, when I got the opportunity to test drive Jolen’s Creme Bleaches and Facial Hair Remover Kit, I could not have been more excited. Changing the color of the hair means I don’t have to head to my threading lady as often as I do now. Win! Jolen does a great job at helping users know that in order to get the best results, they should test the products on their skin first. I decided not to use the Creme Bleach just because I wasn’t sure of its efficacy for darker skinned people with dark hair.

Paula’s Choice Skincare Review

Woohoo y’all! I am so excited to finally be blogging about this skincare brand because ever since I announced that I’d be test driving some of their products, many of you gals mentioned how much you LOVE Paula’s Choice. This is a sponsored post through PRIMP and I am so fortunate that I got to try a line of items that were specifically recommended to me by Paula’s Choice fabulous team of experts.

Paula's Choice products

I’ve been playing around with these products for quite some time and as with all skincare products, my opinions may vary compared to the opinions of others. I will say that like with all brands, you will likely find the best results by using an entire line-up of a brand’s products versus just a cleanser, treatment or moisturizer. Make sense? Firstly, let’s see what items were recommended for my acne-prone, hormonal skin that gets blazed by the Florida sun daily.

But for the sake of time, I have chomped this list down to 5 items that I go to just about every day and use alllllll the time.

My First Ever Facial at T-Secret

T-Secret Facial

Here I am having just turned 30, been immersed in the beauty world for almost 8 years and last month was my first time having a facial. How insane is that? I’ve had a slew of fabulous massages and body treatments. I’ve waxed this, colored that, plucked and experienced fabulous manicures and pedicures. So why am I just NOW having a facial? One reason, y’all…
