Blackheads don’t discriminate, even girls with dry skin like me, get them. And believe me they’re no easier to get rid of when you have dry skin. The trick is to treating them, usually with a product made specifically to get rid of them. So what’s my go-to, you ask? A brand whose name is to the point, Clean and Clear, and whose product is spot on, Blackhead Eraser Scrub. 

It has the perfect little micro-beads for a deep clean and exfoliation, as well as salicylic acid to help with clearing the actual blackheads. Since my nose is my blackhead spot, I use this a couple times a week to help keep it free of blemishes and clean — It’s safe for everyday use for those who want to dig down deep daily.

Clean and Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrub is available for $4.39 at
I try to get a solid eight hours of sleep a night, but sometimes life just takes over — in good and bad ways. On those days when I haven’t had enough beauty sleep I turn to Say Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel to help with the dark circles under my eyes. I take one small drop and gently rub it into the skin just under my lower lash line, almost immediately I can see the circles start to dissipate. Followed by a quick cup of coffee, I’m usually feeling, and looking, bright-eyed and bushy tailed in no time.

gillette fusion proglide shaving razorGIllette’s tagline has been “the best a man can get” for years, but I’ve caught on to their game. This woman is stepping up and demanding the best. After a girlfriend’s husband raved about how great his Gillette Fusion ProGlide Shaving Razor was, I had to try one out for myself. I’ll admit it, I missed some of the girly nuances of the packages of women’s razors. But when I held the Fusion ProGlide Razor in my hand it felt good. It was hard and solid, not like my plastic Venus Razor and it moved effortlessly against my legs and took all that unwanted hair with it. I did notice one thing immediately, this baby will nick you if you’re not careful. Thanks to moisturizing cushions and all those other grand ideas in women’s razors I had gotten spoiled with the no-nick factor. But that nick was worth it, my legs were smooooooooth! I may never go back to a girly razor again, I am woman hear me roar!

maybelline-great-lash-lots-of-lashes.jpgI’ve used the same mascara (Cover Girl Lash Blast Lengthening Mascara) for a couple years. And every time I try a new formula, I’m reminded why I shouldn’t stray. But if you follow beauty at all, then you know that Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara is a top rated formula, even amongst its pricier competition. But it was the latest Great Lash Formula, named Lots of Lashes, that caught my attention and made me purchase a tube. With a tiny brush head and the perfect little “grabber” bristles, it coats lashes in great color and makes my eyes pop beautifully!   I don’t think I’ll be going back to old faithful anytime soon.
