#MakeuplessMonday Review: Aveeno Active Naturals Protect & Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen


Hey guys! Today I will be reviewing Aveeno Active Naturals Protect & Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30. Quick overview is that I do enjoy the sunscreen, it has a slightly more watery consistency then the Hawaiian Tropic Ultra Radiance Sheer Touch Lotion Sunscreen SPF 15. Slight downside though, it has less product than the Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen and is more expensive. However, I do think that the Aveeno is better suited for those of you who have sensitive skin! My sister is really sensitive and she can use this product (which is a huge plus, because prior to that she could've only used one other sunscreen)! Hope you guys enjoyed the video and thank you for watching! 

Travel Makeup Bag for Canada

However, I was able to create a variety of looks using the products that I had here (so in my eyes, it completely justifies the amount that I brought)! Without further adieu, hope you have a fun time watching the video!

#MakeuplessMonday Review: Hawaiian Tropic Ultra Radiance Sheer Touch Lotion Sunscreen


Hey guys! So yesterday I uploaded a review of my newest favorite body sunscreen Hawaiian Tropic Ultra Radiance Sheer Touch Lotion Sunscreen SPF 15. Now for some reason or another, I'm not exactly 100% positive this would show up on your subscription feeds... I'm thinking its because I accidentally hit publish on this video and then placed it on private... and then hit publish again. Anyways, quick run down on this sunscreen: it smells really good, spreads easily, and is moisturizing (while absorbing quickly in the skin). This sunscreen is also a chemical sunscreen and personally I have never noticed a difference between physical and chemical sunscreens. Summer is never over in Florida and I am running through sunscreen like water (literally, I finished this sunscreen in less than three weeks). Taking advantage of the heat and will be reviewing sunscreens as I go through them!

July 2014 Makeup Favorites


Hello everyone! So today I have to share with you my July Favorites! There isn't that many products I have to share with you... mainly because I haven't been wearing much makeup and because I have been breaking out quite a bit! These products are well loved throughout the month and one favorite (the Bite lipsticks) have become my favorite lipsticks ever! Check out the video to see what my favorites were! Sorry for the bad lighting, I filmed this originally in good lighting but the original video was completely out of focus! This one is slightly out of focused in the beginning, but I fixed it about half way through ;) 

Products Mentioned:
BareMinerals Well Rested Concealer
Benefit Porefessional Primer | Review 
Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Lychee, Musk, Palomino, and Violet
Clinique Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop

#MakeuplessMonday Review: Olay Professional Pro X Cleansing Brush


Hello guys! Last weeks #MakeuplessMonday Review featured Olay Professional Pro X Cleansing Brush. I've been using this cleansing brush for over a year now, and finally got around to reviewing it! Quick overview for my blog readers: I do enjoy it, but I would not recommend this for those of you who have sensitive skin. I find that this can be abrasive for me because it rotates in a complete circle (those 360 degrees can be a bit... too much at times). However, if you are looking for an alternative to higher end cleansing brushes such as the uber popular Clarisonic, definitely check this out! This is priced for about 30 dollars (before any couponing is involved!) and the replacement brush heads costs $10 for two! A cleansing brush is nice to have because it cleans your face much more thoroughly than your hands ever could! It also removes makeup very effectively (especially pesky, heavy duty makeup like Estee Lauder Double Wear!)

Have you tried any cleansing brushes? What is your opinion on them? Let me know in the comment section below!

Favorite Makeup Brushes



Hello guys! I am sharing with you my favorite makeup brushes that I use on a consistent basis. For the most part, these brushes are drugstore, but I do have two high end brushes in here! While I do not have an extensive brush collection, I do feel that the brushes I do have to talk about are well worth mentioning. I can foresee myself sticking to these brushes for a long time (provided that they don't fall apart on me of course!) The only things that I may have to add in the future are smaller eye brushes to focus on more precise blending! With that being said, I hope you enjoy the video!

#MakeuplessMonday Review: Benefit Porefessional + Comparison to Maybelline Baby Skin



Hello guys! I'm sorta late for posting last weeks #MakeuplessMonday Review, but here it is! I reviewed Benefit Porefessional Primer on my youtube channel, and also compared it to the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser (which I reviewed several months ago here). Quick summary of the review: I enjoy the Porefessional Primer a lot more than the Maybelline Baby Skin. While the price difference is a bit hefty, the texture, consistency, and application of the Porefessional is a lot more appealing to me. Maybelline Baby Skin has a tendency to leave me a bit greasy at times. However, if you are on a budget, both are great pore fillers!

Have you tried either of these products? Let me know in the comment section below what you think!
