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.

The Clumps Trunk Is Open For Business!

Clumps Trunk

Apparently, you people (and by people, I mean the entire world) like to buy things online. It’s true, isn’t it? I mean…who actually RUNS to the store these days? When you’ve got Amazon Prime, waiting an extra 2 days for whatever you need is actually a pretty good idea. Especially since they deliver on Sundays.

How is that even possible? I can’t get a paycheck on Sunday but I’ll get my Amazon Prime thangs? Mmm. Okay. Well, in honor of #AmazonEverythang, I’ve created my own little Amazon store. I’ve so cleverly named it The Clumps Trunk. In my trunk are items that I’ve personally purchased and LOVE. I’ve got the trunk separated in many different categories.

  • Makeup Thangs
  • Nail Polish Life
  • Books I Love
  • Natural Hair Faves
  • Skincare
  • Baby/Toddler Life
  • In the Kitchen
  • Tech
  • Fitness
  • Books Featuring Brown Kids

I’ve also got some recipes coming up and all of the ingredients that I will be listing can be purchased from Amazon. How cool is that? The Clumps Trunk will always be around and it’s open 24/7. And yep, it’s loaded with affiliate links which means if you buy something, I get some pennies. But you were going to buy it anyway, right? See! We all win. 😎

This is why I love y’all. But before I go, check out some of my picks from each category.

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.

Ready To Break Up with Your Makeup?

Break up with your makeupI have a love/hate relationship with my skin. Which I know sounds awful, but hear me out for a minute. Good skin isn’t just a physical thing, it can also be very emotional. When my skin looks good, I feel good. I’m more confident. I tend to smile more and I love using makeup to highlight areas on my skin. But when I’m going through a breakout, I can’t say I’m as confident. I’ve been known to avoid social events simply because I had one too many pimples. It sounds shallow but I know many ladies can relate. Healthy skincare matters. A lot! Lately, I’ve been keeping it simple. You know, nothing too advanced or extraordinary. For a beauty blogger, my routine is actually pretty boring…

  • Cleanse
  • Moisturize
  • Nightly massage
  • Daily lip treatments

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.

CVS Beauty Summer Items + A Giveaway!

CVS Beauty

So I actually looked at the calendar and Summer doesn’t officially start until June 21st. How this is even possible when I’ve been living with 95 degree temps is beyond me. So yah. Summer has been in Florida for quite some time but for the rest of you folx, I am dedicated this summer beauty essentials post for you. In addition to prepping for a trip, I was also so looking to score some summer beauty items that I thought would be fitting with the change of seasons.

You know the drill, right? CVS graces me with a $50 gift card and I have to try my hardest to NOT go over that $50. Well, I did it! With a grand total of $45, I managed to get a slew of items while adding dollars to my Beauty Club membership. Here’s what I scored…

The HolBOX Review – My Kind of Subscription Box

I haven’t been riding the subscription box train for awhile. I mean, truthfully…when you are the opposite of a hoarder, more random products that you probably won’t use not only clutters your space but also seem pointless if you’re already beauty blogger. However, when a gal pal told me about The HolBOX, I knew I had to at least give this box a whirl.

HOLBox

First of all, ignore the fact that I have found a way to justify bringing MOAR items up in my house, but here’s why HolBOX is different. You ready? This box is designed for women who want to live a more holistic life. The products featured aren’t just beauty-related. In fact, many have multipurpose uses that can be used for the body (in and out), household, hair, etc. You get 5-7 full size samples of goodies that come to you wrapped in a beautiful piece of fabric that can used for the head or however you see fit. See!! Not just your average beauty box…
