Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean

Screen Shot 2017-06-09 at 9.56.36 PM
I first heard about these from an Instagram Ad and then I saw commercial for these. As I mentioned before, I don’t have a skincare routine. I use skin care products when I feel like I need them. What intrigued me about them, was when I do take off my makeup at night (I’m better about washing it off now) I just use Huggies Baby Wipes.  On days I wear more makeup than my everyday look, I notice the wipes weren’t removing all the makeup. I haven’t heard anything about these from any YouTubers and bloggers that I follow, so I thought I would still go ahead and give it a try. (Since I have purchased these about a  month ago, I have seen two bloggers have sponsor ads about these cleansing cloths.)

Product Info-

The Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths are water activated cloths cleanse. It claims to have the feeling of a $100 spa facial. I have never had a facial before so I can’t say if this is true or not. However, my skin does feel amazing after using the Daily Clean Cloths. These textured cleansing cloths have the benefit of a scrubber, toner, cleanser, and mask to gently exfoliate the skin. It removes dirt, oil, makeup and even mascara. It works 2x better than a basic cleansing, and I totally agree with this statement. The face wipes combine a soap-free lather and active Olay conditioners to leave your skin clean, hydrated and smooth in less than one week. These are perfect for traveling when you are on the go, or for everyday use.  The Daily Facials are recommended for normal skin types. I have dry skin and these work great for me.

How it works-

The 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths are specifically textured, with soft cleansing pockets, to gently loosen up and lift away dirt, oil, and makeup. Your results are smoother skin in less than 1 week.
4-in-1 Formula
1. Cleanser – washes away dirt and make-up
2. Toner – essential cleansing formula tones skin
3. Mask – hydrates with essential Olay conditioners
4. Scrub – exfoliates to smooth skin’s surface

How to use it-

  1. Wet the cloth with water
  2. Rub together for a lather
  3. Cleanse (even around the eyes).
  4. Rinse out (for best results, and use cloth to wipe face)
  5. Throw away (do not flush)
It’s that simple! They suggest completing your routine to use Olay Complete Lotion All Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 for normal skin. I’ve used this moisturizer for years! At least a minimum of 5 years. I don’t use this at night but I do use this every single morning. You can find these pretty much everywhere. At Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Ulta, even Amazon. You can purchase either 33 cloth in a tub, or 33/66 cloths (not in a tub).
Sorry, I didn’t realize I couldn’t upload videos to my blog, with the plan I have. Here is the link! 
I love these cloths! From someone who went from using just Huggies wipes to these cleansing cloths, I can tell a major difference. 1) when I wake up and wash my face, I’m not still removing makeup, 2) I do have dry skin so sometimes the Huggies does dry out my face. After using the Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths, my skin feels smooth, hydrated, and fresh. I can’t wait to see how these hold up in the winter.
Have you tried these? If, so what are your thoughts? What do you use to remove your makeup?

Summer Must Have: Kopari Body Glow

 

I received my Kopari Coconut Body Glow in one of my Bless Boxes, and I am so glad it was in there. I am in love with this body glow! It is the perfect shine, shimmer and glow for that summer bronzed look. When I want to look EXTRA glowy (is this a word?). I put this under my Pro Glow foundation and I use it on my neck and shoulders. I rarely wear shorts so next time I do I’m going to put some on my legs. I was nervous trying this because of the Coconut smell. I’m sensitive to certain smells and I usually don’t like coconut. But the body glow doesn’t bother me. I smell it when I first put it on and I’ll get a whiff of it throughout the day but, it’s not a constant smell.  Kopari Coconut Glow is vegan, sulfate-free, silicone-free, cruelty-free, & paraben-free

IMG_1038

Product Info:

The Coconut Body Glow contains natural pearlescent minerals to illuminate face and body. It hydrates and nourishes your skin but it’s also, lightweight and absorbs fast. It is $42 for a 3.4 oz bottle. (*Mine is not full size, I’m sure this is travel size. 1 oz/ 30 mL) It’s great for your skin if you have dryness, dullness and uneven texture, and have an uneven skin tone. This is from the benefits of Coconut Oil. I have heard the debate of using Coconut Oil for your skin is good for your skin and bad for your skin. They say it can clog your pores and cause breakouts. Most people with acne type skin tend to stay away from coconut oil.

“Since not all coconut oil is created equal, the source and processing greatly affect quality. Kopari’s coconut oil is sustainably sourced from the Philippine Islands and crafted to be ideal for everyone’s beauty routine. All thanks to its lightweight, hypoallergenic, straight-from-the-source purity, creamy texture, quick absorption, and sweet, yet subtle aroma. ” From Sephora.com

IMG_0940

 

How to Use:

You can use this as an all over body glow or add it to lotion for subtle radiance or apply the oil to the cheekbones, collarbones, shoulders, decolletage and brow bones as a luminous highlighter. The way I use the coconut body glow is, I add the oil to my face before foundation, my neck,  collarbones, chest and shoulders with a brush. It up to you if you want to use your fingers to dab it on or a brush. I only use a brush because I tend to make a mess. 🙄

Be sure to shake the product before using for the shimmer. Also, watch the temperature of where you keep this.

Kopari Oil

Ratings:

On Kopari’s website out of 236 reviews, the Coconut Body Glow has a 4-star rating. 155 people rated this 5 stars and 17 people rated this 1 star. On Sephora’s website out of 26 reviews, the Coconut Body Glow has a 3 1/2 star rating and 5219 loves.

How to Reach Your Goals!

IMG_0802

Hey, ya’ll! How are you? It’s so crazy that it is already JUNE! I can’t believe it, where has the time gone! I know everyone says that, but seriously, I’m failing at my yearly goals. How are you doing at your goals? Leave me a comment to let me know. We only have 6 months to get it together 😩

IMG_0812

Here are a few of my New Years ResSome of my goals I want to achieve are:

  • Be healthier – I feel like I am doing so/so with this. I haven’t been eating pizza as much.
  • Save money- FAILING! My name is Joniamac and I’m a shopaholic.
  • Learn a foreign language – I really want to learn ASL. I use to know quite a bit when I was younger, and I want to learn how to sign.
  • Blogging goals: each month I set goals of what I want to achieve, my main goal is to blog more.

These are just a few of my goals. The next 6 months I’m going to work hard for them and for the next year.

IMG_0807 IMG_0818

So how are we going to achieve our goals? Here are some tips I find helpful:

  • Set Goals that MOTIVATES you! – You have got to want it. If your goals motivate you, it means it’s important to you.
  • Make sure your goals are REALISTIC. If you make goals that are impossible (so to speak) then you will feel defeated.
  • Make sure your goals are CLEAR. For example, say your goal is to learn a foreign language. It’s a good goal but it’s not clear because there are so many languages to learn and it doesn’t help you move in the direction you want to go in. Maybe you want to learn Japanese because you plan on doing an internship in Japan, or French because you plan on moving to Paris.
  • Have an ACTION PLAN– How are you going to achieve your goals. Most goals take work. Take them step by step!
  • SEE IT! Write down your goals, make it a checklist. Make sure you put it somewhere you can see it. I put my goals on my vision board, it helps me see and keep track of what I am trying to achieve (when I’m not being lazy) To help me keep up with my daily/weekly goals, I use an app called Clear. Clear is great because 1) My to-do list is on my phone. I don’t have to worry about writing it down on a sticky note and miss placing it. 2) You can create multiple organized, categorized list (whatever you want to name your list) 3) You can set a reminder for your task. 4) You can personalize the list with a theme. Click here for the link.
  • TELL PEOPLE your goals. It can be your best friend(s), your family, someone that you have a connection with. If you tell someone your goal, you are more likely to accomplish your goals. I finally told my friends that I was going to start blogging, tell them held me accountable.
  • Have a DEADLINE- Set a time on when you want to accomplish your goal(s).

Iluvsarahii x Colourpop Collab

If you don’t know who Iluvsarahii, she is a bomb makeup artist/beauty influencer. She started on Instagram and now she has a Youtube channel.

IMG_0902

The Iluvsarahii and Colourpop collaboration include:

2 eyeshadow palettes (4 shadows each) $18 each – Chic-y and $aucey

3 Lippies $6 each – Ultra Stain Lip: 951; Ulta Matte Lip: Mamacita; Ultra Glossy Lip: Curvii

3 Lip pencils $5 each – 951, Mamacita, Curvii

You can buy the items separate or the whole kit for $60.00.

So I’m going to start with the two products I don’t have the Chic-y palette and the Ultra Glossy Lip in Curvii (I also don’t have any of the lip liners but those are the same color as the lippies). The Chic-y palette is pretty but it was something I was drooling over. I was tempted to purchase Curvii but I’ve tried peachy nudes before and it doesn’t look good with my skin tone.

Chic-y $18:

Is a pressed powder shadow palette. It has 4 shades of neutrals, pinks, and browns. There are both matte and metallic finishes.

Distressed: A matte vanilla

Vivacious: A metallic pink champagne

Freckles: A matte warm mocha
Noche: A matte black brown

 

Screen Shot 2017-06-01 at 10.52.46 PMScreen Shot 2017-06-01 at 10.53.03 PM

Curvii $6:

Is a light peachy nude in a crème finish. The gloss is medium coverage gloss with a creamy finish.

Here are the items I purchased:

$aucey $18-

IMG_0904

Is a pressed powder shadow palette with 2 matte and 2 metallics of orange/coral, and purple. The shadows are super pigmented, smooth, soft, applies evenly, and easy to blend. The colors in the $aucey palette are gorgeous! I usually don’t wear colorful eyeshadows but I have a feeling I will be playing with $aucey a lot. This palette is very versatile, I’ve seen so many different looks on Instagram.

Heavy Glam: A vibrant duochrome orange with a pink flip
Chic Happens: A matte cool mauve
Lit: A vibrant metallic purple
Razy: A matte blackened plum

IMG_0914_FotorIMG_0915

Both of these photos are in natural lighting. The top photo is in the direct sunlight, the bottom photo is in the shade.

Here is the makeup look I created with $aucey. I am not a makeup artist, but I like the way this turned out.

IMG_0901

951 $6-

Is an Ultra Satin Lipstick,  with a creamy consistency and a satin finish. 951 a medium warm nude.  The pigmented lipstick is long lasting but is not kiss proof and it does transfer. I find this shade a perfect nude, it’s not too light and it’s not too dark.

IMG_0907IMG_0924

IMG_0883

 

Mamacita $6-

Is an Ultra Matte Lipstick. It is a beautiful deep burgundy. As soon as I saw this I knew, I HAD TO HAVE this. I love dark/deep burgundy lipsticks. I like this one because it has more of the purple tones but not a dark plum color. Mamacita is a thin lightweight lipstick, with a bold pigment, matte, long wearing, and transfer proof. Just be careful with the lipstick because it does smudge. I will say I’m not the best at putting on lipstick, so it could just be me.

Pants Life: What I Wear to Work

I work part time at an Art Museum and its freezing in there. So unfortunately for me, I have to dress warm even though it feels like 95 degrees outside. I typically wear pants 1) to keep warm and 2) I wait to the last minute to get ready and I need a quick and easy outfit.

So all of the pants are from Old Navy Petite besides the Olive pair. I ordered them back in November during all the holiday sales. These pants are not only chic but comfortable. These pants are versatile, you can dress them up or go for a casual look, you can wear flats or heels with them as well.

IMG_0686IMG_0703

IMG_0726

IMG_0750

The first outfit are these Relaxed Mid-Rise Harper Trousers in Black Leopard and a maroon sweater and lace-up flats. The leopard print and maroon pair well together. This outfit is for those casual days in the office or for those days when you are on your feet.

These flats are on clearance for $12 from American Eagle. These are all sold out in petite but, are still available in maternity. Click here if interested.

IMG_0670IMG_0693IMG_0678IMG_0682

The second outfit is more professional. I wore this to a luncheon meeting. The outfit still has the black and white professional element, but the polka dots in the pants and the red lace up heels adds vibrancy and fun to it.

IMG_0706IMG_0705

IMG_0717

IMG_0709

The third outfit is bold and by far my favorite. I put two of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer together and made it work appropriate (depending on your dress code). The material on the yellow pants was not what I expected. They are a bit thick and heavy, but once you have them on, you won’t notice.

IMG_0723IMG_0737

IMG_0740IMG_0727

IMG_0738

If the yellow on yellow is too much for you, but you still want to play with color, I paired this Who What Wear Target top with dark olive green high waisted pants. The yellow in the top pops more with the dark pants. If you’re not up for wearing heels at work, I’ve worn sandal with this outfit during an outside event. Flats will work as well.

April Bless Box Unboxing

I don’t want to be a negative Nancy, but April’s box was a huge disappointment for me. I was truly excited about one product. It’s not that the products aren’t great, it’s just that some of the products, I know I’m not going to use and other products I’ve gotten before. The boxes are starting to get a little repetitive. Also, shipping for this box was awful. I hate waiting on shipping! And paying for shipping, to be honest. I know there is a process, but I feel like it shouldn’t take that long for packages to ship. Anyways, I got my shipping confirmation on the 22nd and I didn’t receive my box until the 29th. I mean, what’s the point of it being April’s box, if we are getting it in May? To top it off, my Colourpop eyeshadow was shattered 😩😭😭 I think I was expected to be blown away and I just wasn’t. I know they are still new and trying to work out the kinks, but they should let customers know when there is a problem or a delay. With the delayed box, I was expected to be blown away and I just wasn’t.

April’s theme is Let Your Beauty Blossom. What’s in the box:

Colours of World! ​

IMG_0634

“Colours of the world (Spice up your life) Every boy and girl (Spice up your life) People of the world (Spice up your life) Aaahh!!!” Spice Up Your Life is my favorite Spice Girl song! Spice Girls is one of my favorite girl groups EVER! When thinking of the Spice Girls, it reminds me of S Club 7. (Ain’t no party like a, S Club party!) Does anyone remember them?

When I heard Victoria Beckham was coming out with a line at Target, I was excited. She has such great style and designs. The Victoria Beckham for Target collection has some great pieces. I originally wanted this pattern in the skirt set but it was sold out. I wish I would have brought more items from this collection when I purchased this romper, the items that I really want are sold out.

I really love this Retro Floral Romper. I like the vibrant bold pattern and colors. I’m glad it has a tie waist and belt to match. However, because of my height and size, the romper is a little big and make me look straight. So I pull the bottom up to make the top more flow, to give my body some shape.

IMG_0642

IMG_0640IMG_0652

You can dress this romper up with a blazer and heels or dress it down with sandals or sneakers.  You can also play with color in your accessories with this romper like I did. But make sure its minimum accessories otherwise, your outfit would be too busy. Fashion blogger Color Me Courtney paired her romper with orange heels. Check out her Instagram account here.

The VB for Target Retro Floral Romper is on sale for $21. Click the photo above for the link.

  • Bonus- Coupon codes

IMG_0609IMG_0610IMG_0611

March Bless Box is estimated $200+

I have used every makeup/skin product in this box beside the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. I’ve been blessed to have great skin, which means I’m the worst when it comes to using skincare. I only use skincare products when I need it. I am working on getting better at this. Anyways, I’ve been using everything else nonstop! The Kopari Coconut Body Glow, I use on my face under my foundation for that EXTRA DEWY GLOW. I love how my makeup looks when I use this. The Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid is so great for that subtle glow for a natural makeup look. The only negative for me is that when applying it with my fingers (which is suggested) my foundation is rubbing off. So I’m going to try using a brush next time.

Have you tried the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence? If you have, let me know how you use it? Do you use alone or with other products?

Hey y’all! How was your Easter weekend?!

When I first saw this AEO Ahh-mazingly Soft Boyfriend Shirt, I fell in love with it. However, I didn’t buy it because I didn’t want to spend $45 on a shirt, that I was just going to wrap around my waist. Not sure why I never wear my plaid shirts as a shirt (unless I get cold) but I should try wearing them more often. Anyways, when I saw the shirt on clearance, it was mine! When they named it Ahh-mazingly Soft, they were not joking, it’s so soft. I love the colors, it makes it perfect to take your outfit from blah to fun and colorful.

These cute Flatforms are from payless. They are a little bit too big for me but they are in my correct size and the smallest size, a 5. They do hurt the back of my heel but other than that, the shoes are comfortable. These also come in a Silver Metallic. I really wanted these but my size is sold out.

  2. Answer the 11 questions your nominator has asked you
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers
  4. Ask them 11 other questions
  5. Let them know that you’ve nominated them

11 Facts About Me:

  1. My favorite food is Pizza and tacos.
  2. I listen to all genres of music.
  3. I was born in Florida, which I feel like is rare. Shoutout to all my Floridians!
  4. I have a bachelor’s degree in Event Management (Go Knights!)

  6. Harry Potter is my favorite movie or should I says movies.
  7. I love ice cream. I eat ice cream almost every day.

  9. I don’t know how to swim.
  10. My favorite animal is a monkey.
  11. My first concert was Justin Timberlake & Christina Aguilera.

Questions Ali asked me:

  1. What would your perfect day be like?                                                                                    A perfect day for me would be on vacation is Dubai doing all the fun tourist things, being at the Summer Olympics and attended any event but mostly swimming and gymnastics, at NYFW or any fashion week, or going to a concert with all the popular 90’s bands and artist. Hopefully, all this will happen one day. A more realistic perfect day for me would be a warm 80-90 degrees sunny day (most people say this is hot), hanging out with friends or family having fun or getting photos or post done for my blog.
  2. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?                                                                                                                                          I’m deciding between pizza and tacos obviously. But I have to go with pizza. Pizza is my one true love and I eat pizza a few times a week anyways.
  3. What song’s lyrics feel as if they represent your life best?                                    “Just dance! Gonna be okay” This is from Lady Gaga’s Just Dance song. I love dancing, I always find myself dancing to music even in public. Plus dancing always makes you feel better, right?
  4. What is your favorite thing about yourself?                                                                My favorite thing about myself is I’m empathic. I have the ability to understand and share the feelings of other people.
  5. Do you prefer drugstore makeup or high end? Why?                                                            I prefer high-end makeup. Back in the day (late middle school maybe), when I first started wearing makeup my first powder press/foundation was from Fashion Fair, which you would have had to buy from Macy’s or Belk. If you don’t know Fashion Fair it was a brand that catered to women of color. This is what my granny used and she took me to the store to buy some. I’ve been really fortunate to be able to get free Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes from co-workers, I got the naked 1 & 2 palette on eBay for a great deal ( and yes they were brand new), and I save my money for what I want. Also, what I like about high-end brands, typically the store it’s sold in you can swatch/try the product before buying and with drugstore makeup you have to search for the products at different stores such as Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, and Ulta. However, I have been exploring with drugstore makeup. At the age of 25, I tried my first drugstore foundation, the L’oreal Pro Glow this year and I love it.  But because of my skin tone, I do find it easier to find my shade with higher end brands.
  6. If you could go on a date with any celebrity, who would you pick and why?               If I could go on a “date” with any celebrity, the first person that comes to mind is Gigi Hadid. I would love to be able to sit with her a chat with her about fashion, her life, her modeling career, and any tips and tricks on taking photos.
  7. What is one thing you hate about blogging?                                                                        One thing I hate about blogging is writing. I’ve never enjoyed writing, it stresses me out. I do have to say I am getting better at it.
  8. Do you believe in horoscopes?                                                                                                 Yes, I do believe in horoscopes. But only to a certain extent, I don’t live my life by them. It’s just interesting how most of the characteristics for Aries match me and my personality. And sometimes the monthly “predictions” can be right on.
  9. If you could eliminate one task from your life, what would it be?                                   I would say wash my hair and the whole process. It’s convincing myself and to start washing it that’s hard.
  10. What is one product you couldn’t live without?                                                                   I don’t know if I could live without my phone.
  11. What made you decide to start blogging?                                                                         I’ve wanted to start a fashion blog for years. I love fashion, I love to shop and I want to share my style, tips, and fashion information with others whether it’s what the trends are or what stores are having great sales.
