Cosmedix’s BrillianCy Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil is a great find. The directions advise you to use it as you would a serum or moisturizer, ie. put on dry skin after cleansing. I use this as I use all my oils, as a last step for major hydration and to lock in my serum and moisturizer. I do this only at night. It is designed to be used both day and night, but I think it is too heavy for day time. It smells great. A little goes a long way, you do not need a full dropper’s worth. I used the excess on my hands before bed and could feel the added smoothness in the morning. I have combination skin. I think this is best for combination or dry skin. So get your vitamin C, in an oil, how brilliant of you…

U Beauty skincare. I have been using their Resurfacing Compound. This product and brand have a cult following and I can see why. This serum is designed brighten, tighten, even out, and resurface skin. It is a clean beauty product and leaping bunny certified. The key to how this product works is the “Siren Capsules”. The Siren Capsules “deliver age-reversing ingredients to the most vulnerable areas of the skin while avoiding the exposure of harsh actives to areas that don’t need treatment. The result? Healthy skin maintains its integrity and realizes visible improvement, while dryness and irritation are avoided. By stopping free radicals in their tracks, SIREN Capsules prevent visible signs of damage and aging.”

has never disappointed me. Tatcha continues to have some of the best products out there and the prettiest packaging. Lately I’ve been using their The Deep Cleanse Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser and the best selling Violet-C Brightening Serum. The cleanser gently removes all makeup and dirt while minimizing excess oil and uncloging my pores. It is gel like and turns to a creamy foam. The Violet-C is 20% Vitamin C with 10% AHA’s. This is designed to brighten and strengthen skin for a more radiant look. The directions say to use it at night but I used it in the daytime after the Tatcha Essence and followed with moisturizer and sunblock. Check out Tatcha, they won’t let you down. 

Skinbetter’s AlphaRet Clearing Serum is a retinoid based serum that doesn’t mess around. It is designed for oilier, blemish prone skin. AlphaRet is a patented technology that combines retinoid and an AHA. It will improve the overall clarity, tone and texture. It’s made with salicylic acid, BHA’s, and hydrating & soothing ingrediants. 

Tatcha’s The Essence Skincare Boosting Treatment wil soften and plump your skin. It uses a trio of fermented Japanese superfoods. I love every product from this line, and this product does not disappoint. It is designed to boost the effects of your skincare while resurfacing and hydrating the skin. 


Australian Gold’s Plant Based Lotion & Sunscreen with SPF 50 is my favorite new sunblock. It smells amazing. It is part of their new Plant Based line, and formulated with Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil. 


Givenchy’s Le Rouge Universal Hydrating Lip Balm is my go to balm for under my lipstick or gloss. It’s a clear moisturizing balm that is designed to hydrate up to 24hrs. It has hyaluronic acid and jojoba seed extract to soothe and nourish lips all day. 

products are easy to find thanks to Her Highness. I am obsessed with everything about this brand. Depending where you live, they have thc and/or cbd female forward products for every aspect of your life. The overall look of the brand is gorgeous, and the quality is top notch. I will suggest a few of their cbd products, but I highly recommend you heading to their website to see all they have to offer. The first item I tried was their Masquerade Facial Mask. It is a cbd sheet mask designed to smooth, plump, and fight wrinkles. The serum absorbs quickly into the skin, and what’s left in the package can be used for 2-3 days when stored in the fridge. This mask makes a difference, it’s not just a pampering experience. Next I tried the Single Pre Roll and Lighter. The lighter is so sexy, and refillable. The CBD pre roll is amazing. I rarely feel affects from cbd when ingesting it. This one definitely made a difference. The roll is .5mg of Cherry Blossom flavored Organic CBD. It has an extra long filter to “protect your nails and eyelashes from getting singed”. My favorite product in the line is their Highly Orgasmic Pleasure Oil. Run, do not walk, to get this stuff! It is not a lubricant, it is a pleasure oil, and OMG is it. The base is olive oil, then CBD mixed with a South American medicinal plant. They worked with a professional female herbalist to concoct this topical and make sure it is legit.  So get in with Her Highness, and bring new pleasure to your routine…

whatever it is let Curology work on the cure. I am extremely happy with my skin at the moment. I have been using Curology’s face wash, customized serum, moisturizer, and body wash. It is a very simple service to use. They develop customizable serums to fight whatever your individual concerns are. The ingredients are medical grade and at your needed level. You just snap a few pics on your cell and answer some questions on their site. They use your pictures, lifestyle, and goals to create exactly what you need. If you are not satisfied with your current routine, I recommend trying this system out. So get a unique formula from Curology, because you’re not like anybody else ;)…

and my lip gloss. I love my 3 Graces lip gloss for the effect, and the messages inscribed on the package. 3 Graces started as a “collaboration between a classically trained portrait artist and skilled makeup artist. The glosses feature beautiful, vibrant pigments infused with their signature lip serum for intense color that gives a radiant shine to your lips.” Each gloss has a positive message written on the package. I use their Pink Nude, and the package reminds me  ‘In Everything Give Thanks’. There are 7 colors to choose from. Your lips will be soft and hydrated, with high shine. So pucker up for 3 Graces and give them lip….

your skincare. I have been using Care Skincare’s Tireless retinoid Night Serum and the Eye & Lip Nourishing Cream. Care Skincare is a clean beauty brand with safe, effective products for all skin types. Everything is non toxic, fragrance free, and never tested on animals. They sell directly to customers, and use simple packaging, in order to keep prices low. The serum smooths and brightens skin overnight. “Granactive Retinoid Combats the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while increasing elasticity for a firmer, smoother, more luminous skin texture.” The Eye & Lip Cream uses hyaluronic acid for hydration and caffeine to reduce puffiness. It also has vitamin c and peptides for overall brightenss. So feel confident and clean with Care Skincare, and let the rest of your life get dirty….

about my skincare. That’s why I’m using Exuviance AF Vitamin C 20% Serum Capsules. These capsules are designed to brighten your skin while restoring tone and firmness. 20% is a serious dose of Vitamin C. You feel a warming sensation when you apply it, to me that means it’s good! The single use capsules are the ultimate way to protect product from air, light, and water. It is a powerful serum used alone, or layer with other products for extra benefits. These capsules are great for when you’re traveling. So get serious AF about your skincare with Exuviance, and get silly with everyone else…
