A Sunburned Reminder…

Dear Brown Girls,

We do get sunburned. I have the worst one ever and summer JUST begun. I’ve been spending a lot of time outside and it looks like my every day moisturizer just ain’t gonna cut it. My face is about 14 different colors right now with my nose being the most burnt.

It ain’t a good look. Learn from me. Of course I’ll be talking more about brown girls and the sun in the coming weeks. Including how to heal and repair the skin if you’ve been a victim like me.

I was born and raised in Florida so you would think I would know better. *guilty sigh*

Enjoy your weekend! Clumps will  be back at it on Monday and I’ll finally be reviewing NYX’s Doll Eyes. Only took me 12 years to get to that. Hahaaaa!!

Love,

Beauty Review: Nuturing Force blotting papers

While at The Makeup Show NYC, I came across Nuturing Force! I have been using these babies now more than ever with summer in full swing.


They come in different colors. I snagged the purple one which is infused with lavender. Hmmm… The smell isn’t too over-powering so you don’t have to worry about it clashing with your perfume or lotion.

I love that you can control how much you pull out!


I can grab a tiny strip for nose or a larger strip for my…larger forehead. HA!! And you never really know how much oil your skin absorbs until you try one of these.


Seee…..

Loves it! Well….not love the oilness that is my face. I just like that it removes the oil from my skin before it seeps in my skin and causes breakouts. Dun dun duuuun! And you know we can’t have that.

You can learn more about Nuturing Force blotting papers here.

Do you carry blotting papers around with you?
Got a favorite brand?
Tell me!

Honey, I Love

I play around with a lot of products. Like, a lot. But not because I’m some product junkie. I really stay faithful to a handful (or car-full, whatever…) of goodies. Those would be the following:

  •  Clarisonic Mia face brush-Speaking of acne-prone skin…this pricey but fantastic face brush is the best thing that ever happened to my skin.
  • Castile soap-Because it’s natural and is the one product that I can clean my face, hair, kitchen, bathroom and clothes with. Multi-purpose is an understatement.
  • Lip balms-Lipstick? Okay. Gloss? Sure. Lip balms? Can’t live with it and give it to me now!
