Hyaluronic acid. So ill (as in the slang word “ill”) that it can hold a thousand times its weight in water—that’s hydration on a trillion, son. If you’ve never heard of hyaluronic acid or only vaguely know what it does and what it can do for your skin, saddle up because this post is about to give you a quick overview plus some products you might want to look into checking out.

Hey party people!

So remember how I said I’d be blogging differently this year? (If you forgot or missed the post, check it out here) Part of my blogging differently is to be able to give you more dynamic posts that you can learn even more from—but creating content like that takes time. And since I’d been busy with projects, my secret beauty event, and a big task I’ve undertaken, there will sometimes be times like now where I can’t put up new content. Not to worry because since I have TONS of amazing content I’m sure you haven’t see yet ;)

The Other Reason to Use Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm

Recently I was tasked to try out Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm which many on Youtube have been raving about as an inexpensive substitute for makeup primer.

I side-eyed it, but since Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm *is* a product meant to go on the face (unlike Milk of Magnesia, Monistat, and whatever household items your cousins on Youtube are putting on their faces), I gave it a go. It’s also priced at $5.99 for 3.3 oz which if you’re watching your budget very closely, is still about half the price of even drugstore makeup primers.

7 SUPER Easy Ways to Prep Your Skin for the Holiday Party Season & Winter!

danielleholidayoutfits2016-36

It’s that time of year! Whether you’ll be hitting the holiday parties night after night OR hitting the couch to watch Home Alone for an unprecedented amount of times, one thing you need to be doing is keeping that skin together, honey. I stress the importance of skincare all year-round, but you have to think of the things you do all other times of year as prepping for the Olympics that is winter. Winter can be HARD on the skin already, but when you add all the extra cocktails and late night fetes—it can make your skin dry, look lackluster, and can even lead to breakouts. Yikes.
