Tips for Dry Skin

As you guys know I have dry skin and I think these tips are super helpful especially with winter around the corner!

Beautyholics101

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10…

molly kauper

Hey y’all! Black Friday is coming up soon, and though I usually don’t leave my house for this event, I love to online shop and take advantage of all the sweet deals. I’ve had a few people ask me what the best deals are, so I thought I’d compile a few good ones and share them with you! I definitely won’t be buying things from all of these sites, but I might pick a few items up here and there 😉 Also, I definitely haven’t captured every single sale out there, but these are a few from the most popular beauty brands at the moment.

The TRUTH about animal derived ingredients!

Just wanted to share this with you guys because it’s important to know what you’re putting into your body.

Last week I did a poll on Instagram asking if you would rather see a video on cruelty-free dupes OR animal derived ingredients, and about 90% of you chose ingredients, so here we are! When I first started looking into cruelty-free beauty and animal testing, I wasn’t looking into ingredients, but it wasn’t long until the nasty truth came out. What are these ingredients that we are putting all over our faces? I found the top 10 most popular animal derived ingredients, and I am definitely going to be more conscious of what ingredients are in my makeup and skin care!

COCHINEAL DYE (also known as CARMINE) – this is literally crushed up beetles. These beetles feed on cactus plants in Central and South America, and the females eat red cactus berries, and when these beetles are crushed a bright red dye is produced. If your makeup is red…

A No From The Universe

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while it’s because the universe hates me. My laptop’s screen broke again and I had to get it replaced. Luckily I’ve got it back now and it’s fine.

Anyway, just wanted to give you a little update on what’s going on with me. On Thursday, we decided to go to this place called Village Market and it ended up being super fun! It has a really artsy vibe and it’s just such a fun place although it’s really big so it takes forever to get from one end to the other!

We ended up going to one of my favourite bookstores in Kenya called Between The Lines which is just so pretty!

You NEED the MakeupEraser

Southern Girl Blogging

Hello out there in reader land! Here’s a note to my beauties and those who love makeup and clean skin. Last night, your devoted southern blogger got to sample the MakeUp Eraser, boasted to completely clean allll of your mascara, dark liner, foundation, and even the sweat and crud off without soap. Just wet this special REUSABLE cloth and wipe away! AND it’s REUSABLE for 3-5 years. You can imagine my apprehension and eye roll at this claim. This little pink square sample arrived in the mail all fuzzy (like a scary ‘70s shag carpet) and my eye roll became an eye and neck roll. AS IF this little square was going to clean MY heavy diva makeup face down to clean. So I piled on that mascara, the false lashes (with black glue) and liner, used my waterproof foundation and spritzed with a nice finishing spray to seal the deal…

Makeup Products I Hated

Maybelline Strobing Stick- I’m a really big fan of Maybelline and I’ve liked almost all their products but this product just fell short. It didn’t have a great glow and it kind of just looked weird because you have to wear so much of it.

E.L.F Highlighter- I’m a big fan of both E.L.F and powder highlighters so I thought this would work out great but I really hated this highlighter. I know some makeup guru’s/bloggers really like it but this just wasn’t for me.  It didn’t have that much glow and it was really flaky and hard to use.

E.L.F Lip Primer and Plumper– I didn’t have any particular problem with this product except that I don’t think it works. The primer part is fine but the plumper in my experience just didn’t work. I already have pretty large lips so I didn’t mind that much since it hydrated them really well and since it tingled it made them nice and pink but for someone who has smaller lips and is looking for an actual way to plump their lips this product is just not for you.

Covergirl Mascara- Compared to other mascaras I’ve used this just doesn’t cut it. It looks okay but it really isn’t anything to brag about. It does make your lashes slightly darker and fuller but if you’re looking for a really full look this is not for you.

Nyx Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation– This actually looked really good when I put it on but it really didn’t stay on well. After a few hours it started to smudge and move around and I ended up looking like a crazy person! I thought maybe the problem was me and I wasn’t using it right so I looked at other reviews and I saw that many people had similar experiences to mine. If you’re looking for a good matte foundation I would recommend Maybelline (not vegan or cruelty free) or ELF (vegan and cruelty free) or Eco Beauty Crew (cruelty free and has vegan options).
