My Hydra Essentials

For the past two weeks I have been trying out Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Collection and in particular the replenishing Lip Balm and Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask. The balm makes my lips ultra soft, plump and kissable while the eyes mask and moisturizer reduce wrinkles and puffiness while still giving my skin the moisture it needs (trust me guys it is thirstyyyy)! I am always trying out beauty products for you guys and reporting back which ones I love. You would be surprised by how many I don't ever talk about (they go straight to my junk drawer). So when these worked I was so excited!!

Clarisonic Mia 2 + Deep Pore Detoxifying Solution Review

This is a sponsored post in partnership with Clarisonic and Her Campus Media. All words and opinions are my own

Thanks to Her Campus + Clarisonic I was able to try out the Mia 2 and Deep Pore system just in time for the Holiday season (yes that is already upon us... yikes!) I decided that instead of just saying "love it" which I totally do, I would give you guys a more in-depth review. Since this is not a drugstore item and get be a little pricey I wanted to give you guys enough information to make you want to go out and get it or add it to your holiday lists! That being said let's dive in:


Mia 2: Overall I am so excited about this device. To give it a good go I used it for one week every night and I have to say my dry skin feels sooo smooth. From here on out I don't think I will use it every night but maybe everytime I wash my hair in the shower (every other night or so). The head on this brush is super gentle and the two speeds make it easy to fit most people. I prefer to use the lower speed because I do have slightly sensitive skin, but if you don't crank it up I bet the high speed works wonders!


Deep Pore Daily Cleanser: My Mia came in a box with a cleanser and a face mask and normally  I end up pushing products in sets aside and stick to my usual cleanser but this one has changed me. To be fair I do not have "problem" skin so mostly I need a cleanser to make sure my skin stays the way it is, but this one has left it the way it was but slightly better. My skin just feels calm and smooth after I use this. Also, it foams slightly which I always enjoy (for some reason it makes me think it is working better....??) As you can see from the image above it is a nice clear gel-ish consistency. Love this cleanser definitely repurchasing

Detoxifying Clay Mask: If there is one thing I love it is a good mask - this one is a damn good mask. It might sound crazy but when this is on my face I seriously feel like it is pulling out all the dirt and grime from my pores. That being said it is still very gentle. I used it twice last week like it was the BEST. I don't' know how much it actually did overall but my skin is looking awesome and a mini spa night was pretty great.

Bold Brows for Fall

Thank you to European Wax Center® for sponsoring this post!

European Wax Center® has been my go-to brow magicians for the past year. Bold brows have been a trend all over the runways of fashion week and in every glossy page of magazines. Growing up, I remember begging my mom to let me wax my eyebrows into a thin extremely arched line and I am so glad she never let me. I love my bold brows and they are right on trend for fall. That being said I only trust European Wax Center® to not only wax my brows but also, help maintain them weeks after my visit to their center. Recently I have started using their Strut Boldly™ products from their new line Strut 365™ and I am so excited to share my thoughts about each product with you.

While I love bold brows I don’t love the look of a “sharpie brow” or one that looks painted on. In order to achieve my most natural bold brow, I start with the wax. Last week I went into the Center to get my brows trimmed, waxed and just cleaned up. Once my brows are in tip-top shape I am able to use a small amount of product on them. I start with the Browfection™  Powder Duo and apply the lighter color in upward strokes with the Brow Pals Dual-Ended Brush.


I love using this brush to apply the powder because of the dual end. Anything to get the job done quicker is what I am all about. A powder is my preferred method of filling in my brows because with a soft formula of the BrowFection™ makes my brows look like and airy instead of weighed down.


To set my brows in place I use Ready. Set. Brow! ™ Perfect Brow Groomer. The gel is soft holding meaning it keeps your brows in place without a crusty or sticky residue. Finally, to add that extra umph to my brows I highlight under them with Oh My Brow! ™ Brow Highlighter. The creamy formula doesn’t have chunks of glitter like a lot of highlighters making it perfect to just sweep on pat in and go.


So! If you guys want to get on this season’s trend with me make sure to head into your local European Wax Center® the expert in brows. You can make a reservation online and receive $5 off your service if you mention this post! Or if is your first time new guests can get an eyebrow wax for free. On your way out make sure to check out all these products I mentioned for your best brows yet!
