Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes

   It's not often I enjoy a product "so much", that I find myself buying it again, but these Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes are defiantly HG (Holy Grail) material. Believe me I've bought and tried many different brands of towelettes and nothing I've experienced in the past, beats these. 

     Pretty much, I think I'll be stick to these. I'm not looking to fix something that isn't broken, there is no need to find a replacement.  They don't dry out my skin, they remove my makeup and you can often find these on sale at local stores. I love finding facial products that are found at local markets and stores because they're easy to find when I run out and you don't have to worry about shipping time.

The company Burt's Bees clam the product is not tested on animals and contains no parabens, phthalates or petrochemicals.

If you are looking to buy these, I've found them at my local drugstore, Target and Walmart. Also check out for more information.

Stationery Addict?

     Yes...the last thing I need is another journal but I thought it'd be really useful. I've decided I'm going to use this journal for writing down my ideas for future blog posts. It's a Parisian themed lavender journal I picked up at my local Walgreens drugstore for $9.99.

New Morning Skincare Routine


   First off, I'm going to say sorry about the picture quality...I'm currently working on it. =)

     Anyways, one day I browsing Whole Foods for a new face cleanser and the Everyday Coconut's Cleansing Face Wash caught my eye. A whole 12oz bottle of cleanser for $8.99 wasn't a bad price in my eyes, so then I picked up the bottle and read the the ingredients. I got really scared at first, because the main ingredient in this item is - free trade coconut oil!! yikes!!!

     If you don't know, I'll tell you -- I am an OILY skin girl. I have been battling cystic acne since I was a teenager and no matter what I seem to do, my face it is somehow becomes shiny in only a couple of hours. My skin as calmed down a lot since my teenage days but I still get blemish here and there. When I use something my face doesn't like, my face can become -- what I like to call...A MESS!

     Anyways, I Googled on my phone about Coconut oil (thanks goodness for Google) and saw that it's very beneficial for the skin and hair. So I thought to myself, why not? If I don't like it, I could always try and use it as a body wash I went ahead a bought it and let me tell you -- I am very happy I did! This cleanser is great with my skin, it gives me that clean feeling without over-drying my skin. I really like this stuff and best of all...No major breakouts. Yes, I do get a spot here and there but I have not had a full on major breakout since using this stuff.

     So, I decided to go out and get the Everyday Coconut's Coconut Water Face Toner along with Everyday Coconut's Daily Face Lotion with SPF 15. I ran out of old toner which I though was OK but my old toner had a lot of unnecessary chemicals and my normal face lotion was half the size with a larger price tag. So, I thought I would give this brand a shot, the ingredients seem a lot more natural and I feel like I'm getting a lot of product for my money. 

     This shall be my daily morning routine as of now...If anything changes in the future, I will update. 

     Also, I want to point out that this is certified free trade coconut oil and their website clams that 10% of Everyday Coconut's profit goes to support the Alaffia's community empowerment projects in West Africa.
