Eye Cream Round-Up

I like to consider myself somewhat of an eye cream connoisseur.  I’ve been using eye creams consistently since my mid 20’s.  I didn’t start using them to fight the war against wrinkles, but to hydrate my eye area.  I had a few makeup artists tell me the skin around my eye area was extremely dry.  I’ve been hoarding eye creams ever since.  I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I barely have fine lines or wrinkles in my eye area… well outside of the idea that “black don’t crack”.  Since eye creams can get on the pricey side, I thought I would share some of my favorites that you should try before making that commitment.

Family Skincare Routines


When you have a family it can be tough to get everyone on a routine. They say when you start a routine, it will become a habit. I wish that was true for bedtime routines. Outside of bedtime routines, I’m crushing it with skincare and beauty routines in my house. With the help of our favorite lotion, Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion, I’m teaching my girls by example how to take care of their skin.

Summer 17′ is officially in full swing.  If you’ve been hiding those gambs all winter, it’s time to bring them out.  There was a time in my life when I hated summer because I was so insecure about showing my legs.  My tomboy legs were crooked (bow) and full of scars.  All the other little girls had pretty smooth legs.  By the time I reached high school, I finally embraced my legs.  Now they’re my favorite body part.  I wanted to share with you how Vaseline along with a few simple tips, keep my legs looking radiant all summer long.

New Anti-Aging Night Beauty Routine with Olay

We’ve all heard the term, black don’t crack.  That can be true if you take care of your skin.  My mom is almost 80 years old and still doesn’t have any wrinkles.  She’s always taken care of her skin.  She taught me well.  Now that I’m heading around that corner to my 40’s, I’ve been paying more attention to my skin.  In an effort to keep my skin looking young and healthy, I participated in Olay’s 28 Day Skin Study and started a new nighttime beauty routine.

SoCozy’s Introduces Hush Sensitive Scalp Collection for Kids


This post is sponsored by SoCozy.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

When Harper was a newborn I noticed that she had a lot of dry and flaking skin on her forehead.  I just figured it was dry and added some ointment.  On Harper’s next doctor’s visit, I brought it up.  After examination, the doctor discovered that Harper had craddle cap.  With all of Harper’s hair, how would I have ever known?  The doctor suggested that I use dandruff shampoo to help soothe the dryness on her scalp.  I was so nervous to use adult products on my new baby.   I was surprised there weren’t any child-friendly products easily assessable for children with sensitive scalps.  I’m happy to share that one of my favorite children’s hair care brands, SoCozy, recently launched their sensitive skin collection Hush at Target.  The Hush collection is dermatologist and allergy tested to treat sensitive scalp.
