First Impressions: Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream

Happy Saturday everbody! Here are my first Impressions of the Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream!
The only thing I don't like about this product is that it contains parabens.

Influenster sent this product to me for testing purposes

Have you ever tried this BB Cream?

The Skincare Tag!

Jess from Just Jess recently did this tag video and I have seen it going around the blogging world and though it would make a nice addition to my blog!


Describe your skincare in five words:
Cleanse, Moisturizer, Tone, Sleep, Natural

What's your skin type?
I have combination skin. My skin is dry and gets oily in my t-zone.

What's your favorite skincare product?
Mine would be my daily moisturizer, which is my Sephora Instant Moisturizer  It does wonders for my dry and skin and I discovered it from watching youtube videos!

Top blemish zapper:
I haven't found one product that works very great for this but the ELF Zit Eraser is what I currently use to reduce size and redness of acne.

Face wipes - yay or nay?
Yay! I could not live without face wipes. I use them everyday to remove my makeup. I also use a face wash in the shower every morning to remove anything the wipes did not take off the previous evening.

Toner - yay or nay?
Eh? I haven't notice that toner makes a huge difference in my skincare routine. I use it once or twice a week, if I remember.

High-end skincare or high-end makeup?
There are a lot of great high-end skincare products but I would prefer to spulrge on high end makeup because there are so many great drugstore skincare products on the market!

What's the most unusual skincare product you've ever tried?
Toothpaste. I have tried using toothpaste on acne to reduce redness and all it does it make a mess on my face :)

You're in a French pharmacy and can only pick one item - what is it?
I have no idea! I have never been to France and don't know of any French makeup/skincare brands!

Tell us your top skincare tip:
Always take off your makeup before you go to bed!

Do you enjoy skincare or makeup more? Let me know in the comments what your favorite skincare products are!

Review: Anti-Diet & Uncle Bulls**t by Jessica Righart

Happy Saturday! Today I have a different post, I am doing a little review on this book called Anti-Diet & Uncle Bullsh**t by Jessica Righart. The book focuses on different types of diets, the First Key Principle and The Last Key Principle.

The First Principle is defined as being this, eating the right amount of calories for you body type. For women, it is about 2,000 calories per day and for men, it is about 2,500 calories per day.

The Last Principle is very simple, exercise burns calories! One of my favorite lines from this chapter is, "You are the master of your own body", which is so very true! If you eat junk food all day and don't exercise, what do you think is going to happen to your body?

The various diet types mentioned are: Point systems, Meal replacement, Fasting, and Celebrity Diets.

I think this book could be a great motivator for somebody who is looking to workout or go on a diet. This book can empower women or men to take control of their lifestyle.
