Best of Both Worlds: My Favorite Drugstore and High-End Skincare Products

Finding an effective skincare routine can be quite challenging, for me at least. I’ve tried a numerous amount of skincare products from drugstore and high end brands, but have never seemed to find the perfect pairs. But now I’ve found the prefect balance of products in my routine and it just so happens that half are from the drugstore and the other half are from higher end brands.

Take the Day Off

Taking my makeup off in the evening has become super easy thanks to two products: the Garnier SkinActive Clean + Purifying Oil Free Cleansing Towelettes and the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water. 

I start off by grabbing one towelette and begin taking off my eye makeup followed by my face. One towelettes usually gets the job done but sometimes I reach for another one to ensure all my makeup has been removed. Then I grab two cotton rounds and apply some of micellar water to them and start to gently rub my eyes. This step allows me to remove any excess mascara or eyeliner that wasn’t properly removed with the towelette. And that’s it! Super easy, very simple, and all my makeup gets removed. I’ve been so in love with this product and the bottle is almost empty. I must grab another!

What I especially love about these toweltettes is that they are specially designed for oily skin, so it really digs deep to remove dirt and oil from the pores and it mattifies! It’s the perfect makeup removing product for oily skin in the summer time.

This album is dark, mysterious, and pure perfection. I just cannot get enough of Florence and her mesmerizing, unique voice and bold creativity.

Update: Where Have I Been?! + Summer 2016 Goal List

Hi everyone!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve published anything. This academic semester has been one of the busiest and most demanding of my college career. But I’m, glad to say I survived! Finals are over, my junior year is over, and now is the time to relax. This summer I will be taking a couple of classes to lighten my load during the academic year, as well as working. But I am not letting school and work get in the way of a great summer! There are so many things happening in the city, and my friends and I must take advantage. Here’s what I hope to do during the summer:
