Drugstore Favorites I Keep Going Back For

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. Let’s be real, sometimes the flashy packaging and pretty additions (gold flakes anyone?) to high end skin care brands pull us in and dazzle us. But they aren’t always in our budget, and they don’t always work.  I get sucked into it a lot. I always seem to go back to my tried and true holy grail items though – and they don’t break my budget. In fact, those items are easily accessible at the drugstore. Today we’re going to talk about my drugstore favorites I keep going back for over and over! I actually have a lot of drugstore favorites, but I narrowed it down to just 3. I poured over receipts to see what I bought the most – so those are the 3 items we’re going to focus on.  There is actually a 4th item,…

Time to Stock Up On Spring Essentials

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. The sun is finally shining (well, in California anyway) and I’m in the Spring time mood! Out with the Winter skin care and hair care products and in with the Spring essentials. Albertsons has you covered with your Unilever needs. Our household has different needs, and with that comes different products. So when amazing sales are going on, I head out and stock up on essentials for the season. I might also do this so the boys don’t use up all my precious staples. I’m a huge fan of Nexxus and how good it makes my hair look and feel. The Nexxus Keraphix shampoo helps to heal damage to your hair and is Infused with an exclusive PROTEINFUSION blend with Keratin Protein and Black Rice. It’s silicone free, which helps prep your hair for deep conditioning. After a rough Winter,…

Skin Care Essential: Olay Luminous Whip Moisturizer

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine. What if I told you that there’s a moisturizer that soaks in immediately, eliminates shine throughout the day, preps your skin for makeup, minimizes the appearance of pores and gives your skin lasting radiance? You’d think I was bluffing, right? Wrong. It exists, and it’s Olay Luminous Whip! When I was asked to try out a new Olay moisturizer, I knew I was up for it since I already use a lot of their products. But nothing prepared me for this. Olay Luminous Whip moisturizer isn’t your average lightweight moisturizer. It packs a much needed punch to up your skin care game. I get the hydration I need to my dryer skin areas, but the oil absorption I need to my oily areas. The texture was like nothing else I had…

Glow Up With Olay Cleansing Infusion

Thank you to Olay for sponsoring this post. All opinions and text are my own. Before I became a mom, everyone told me to take every chance I could to take care of me. I always thought I would be that mom who would have the perfect balance, and everything worked out. I was wrong. My eating habits changed, my clothing style changed, my makeup and skin care routine changed. Basically, I didn’t have the perfect balance and I was thrilled if everyone got to their morning destinations with matching shoes. Now my son is 12 and he’s become more independent. He doesn’t need to be attached to my hip all the time and is actually becoming his own person. Amazing right? Well, for me it is because I’m starting to get back into older routines and taking more care of myself. First thing I wanted back? My healthy, glowing…

Soothe Your Dry Skin with Dove DermaSeries

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. Let’s face it, most of us suffer from dry skin. For some of us it’s on our face, for some it’s our elbows and knees, and for some it’s simply all over. Personally, I have dry spots on my face (chin, cheeks and around my nose) as well as my elbows and hands. If you suffer from dry skin in any area, then you may want to take a look at the Dove DermaSeries at Target. There are 8 products for the face and body in total in the Dove DermaSeries and I picked up 3 that I felt were best for what I needed. Over the next 3 weeks I’ll be using them and sharing my results with you on Social Media. I didn’t want to go crazy yet since I am in tax season at work,…
