It’s Sleep Awareness Week! Now there are a long list of reasons to get a good night’s sleep regularly: better productivity, better overall health, better memory, hey, even better sex. But before you hit the hay, I want to make sure your skin is well-prepped for your hours of shut-eye.

Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths

So as I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m trying to dabble into the minimalist life which is really hilarious because I’m someone who lived a life of having many things especially when it came to clothes, makeup, and especially skincare. But I’m getting there and making strides. You should see what my bedroom now looks like compared to what it looked like before. Man, oh man.

TSABD Edit: Mattifying Skincare Products of Interest

Mattifying

(I normally post my TSABD Edits on Tuesdays but this one took longer than I anticipated plus I’m going to be in Iceland next week so I wanted to get this posted before I leave)

Though it doesn’t feel like it right now (I’m in NYC), warmer temps will be here soon which means the quest for matte skin shall soon rise again. I know all too well the plight of the oily-skinned: you know the oil is a gift because it will help you look younger on average as you age, but fighting to de-Jermaine Jacksonize your skin can be rough. Womp womp.

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. The reason it works for those enthusiastic beauty gurus is because the product contains glycerin which acts kind of like a glue to keep makeup put for hours. 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.
