Product Review: Formula 10.0.6 Seriously shine free mattifying oil-free moisturizer

Hey Beauties and happy Wednesday❤! 

Hope your week is going as great as mine! I don’t know about you guys, but I have some serious oily skin. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this product so I decided to give it a try for you guys! 

It looks like this 👇🏽


The consistency as shown below reminds me of the smashbox photo finish primer and when you rub it into your skin it feels very refreshing and cooling to the skin! 👇🏽


This moisturizer has Aloe Leaf Juice as well as Bamboo Stem Extract. When it’s applied to the skin, it definitely soaks up very well and doesn’t leave your skin feeling or looking greasy. 

The smell of this product definitely smells like bamboo and aloe. 

Another great thing about this product is I’ve tried this moisturizer As a Primer and it worked soooo well! Definitely kept my makeup Matte all day! 

Pros:

  • Very affordable
  • A little goes a long way
  • Keeps face Matte
  • Oil-free
  • Great for oily skin
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Feels refreshing
  • Can be doubled as a primer 

Cons:

  • If you don’t like the smell of bamboo or aloe, you probably won’t like the smell of this
  • Almost always sold out

Hope you lovelies enjoyed this quick product review! Also, I will also start bringing home decor posts on this blog. Maybe hauls, ideas, diy’s? You guys should let me know!! ❤❤❤

Christmas came early ⛄️

Hey Beauties!

 I feel like I’ve posted a lot today, but I just have so much to share! First off, thank you so much for your amazing comments, likes and conversations! I highly appreciate it and it makes me love each and everyone of you more and more! 

Secondly, if you have any ideas on topics for me to post please share!

Third, I kind of have a candle addiction! 

Lol, my mom knows one of my many obsessions is candles! I love how cozy and yummy smelling they are! It sets the tone of the room! She bought me a candle lol! 

A lot of people love Bath and Body works, but I don’t! It’s not that I don’t love their products, but I just hate going in there because I get a headache instantly with all the scents! Lol she went for me!


She bought a candle…Frosted Cranberry! And it smells absolutely yummy! It’s funny, because it reminds me of when I was still living at my moms house! When Thansgiving was over, I’d buy the limited edition Febreeze sprays in the scent “Frosted Cranberry” it smelled exactly like this candle! I still look for the spray, but I don’t ever see it! But ya, I just had to share my new candle lol
Let me know what your favorite candle scent is! Maybe it’s one that reminds you of a great memory! ❤️

Arm Candy Must Haves: Bella Perlina Edition

Hey Beauties! 

I meant to post this a couple of days ago and I just remembered as I was preparing my clothes and jewelry for tomorrow lol. I do this every night to make things go smoother!

So, I’ve been loving Bella Perlina Jewelry a lot…Like a lot lot !! lol it’s simple, it’s cute and it doesn’t clank together. Sometimes I like the clanky sound,  but some days I don’t! 

This is the “Heart of Gold” set and it comes with 5 stretchy bracelets. You can wear it together or separate. I usually separate it by pairs. 


Pros: 

  1. Had it for 4 months and it didn’t tarnish yet!
  2. Doesn’t make my arm green
  3. Beautiful colors

Cons: 

  1. Wish they carried more colors
  2. A little pricey 

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know what your favorite jewelry brand is!! 

Amazing Product Review: Skincare

Hey Beauties!! As the season changes, I like to switch my skincare as well. Living in Florida, we don’t have to much cold weather. The few weeks that we do get colder weather, I notice some change in my skin! Below are some products that I’ve been absolutely loving!!

By the way! My skin type is normal, but oily in my t-zone area! I also have large pores and acne scaring.


The first product I’m going to talk about is “Confidence in a cream” by “IT cosmetics”. This product is on the pricey side, but so worth it. It retails for about $48. I will say that a little definitely goes a long way.

Pros:

  • Lightweight 
  • Great for any skin type
  • Decreases the size of pores
  • Leaves skin soft
  • Seen a change in my skin texture
  • Smells good
  • Anti-Aging 

Cons:

  • Pricey
  • Not much product in jar
  • You may love this product way to much 😜

I’d give this product a 9/10 because it’s such an amazing product, but I wish they’d come down on the price :/


The second product I’m going to talk about is “Renewed Hope in a Jar eye” by “Philosophy”. It’s an eye cream. It retails for $51. Also another pricey item, but so worth it! I’ve noticed lots of eye creams being to heavy or taking forever to soak in the skin which sucks. This on the other hand has the perfect texture that I like.

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • A little goes a long way 
  • Very moisturizing
  • Brighter under eyes over time
  • Anti-Aging 

Cons:

  • Pricey
  • Smells funny

Overall, this product gets a 8/10 because it’s pricey and it smells funny. lol

Hope you Beauties enjoyed these reviews! I added the candle in the picture as well because when I light candles it gives me some relaxation time and helps me fall asleep better also helping my skin because not stressing helps your skin as well! Let me know what your favorite candle is! ❤️

Tis the Season 🎄 

Hey Beauties!!! Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is nearby! 😊

Of course, we couldn’t wait to decorate our tree and put up a little bit of decorations to make it feel more holiday-like! 


^ Ok, how cute are these little Christmas trees that change colors and this little Snowman! All for $3 at Dollar General!


^The first ornament to go on the tree was a little “Hello Kitty” one and she was so excited 💟

^This year, we decided on a Santa Hat as the tree topper! 🎅🏾 


^After my daughter seen my husband put the topper on, she really wanted to put it on! 


^I found this cute reindeer sweater at Walmart for $9! How cute is it!!


^Ok, maybe I went a little overboard with Christmas stuff, but I couldn’t hold back on these cute leggings!! Santa and Candy Canes?!?! To top it off, it was $3.88! 
Hope you guys enjoyed this super quick post! It’s a little different then I normally post, but I couldn’t resist sharing! Let me know what you guys love doing for the Holiday time! ❤️
