Tips for controlling breakouts!


Hello! I hope you are well. Today I am talking about what I do when I see or feel a nasty breakout begin to bubble up. I’ve gotten a few products together to form a team that will always stop my planet zit in its tracks! 

The first thing I go for when I feel a breakout begin is to put makeup on that area at the very end of my makeup routine. This helps me to not spread that bacteria from the effected area out anywhere else on my face. 

Next, I will wash my face using Garnier’s SkinActive Clean+Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser….what a name.This product smells manly and clean and I am all about that. This is for oily skin so if you have more of a normal skin,  try using the Invigorating Daily Scrub for Normal skin. Back to the Clay Cleanser. This removes all the dirt and oil from my face and leaves it feeling soft and polished.claybreak.jpg

To wash my face, I love using my Vanity Planet spin for perfect skin facial brush. I talk about this thing way to much. When I don’t use this, I can tell my face isn’t as clean. This brush makes me feel so confident that any bacteria from the affected area will be treated and clean. vpbreakbrush.jpg

The next thing I do is something I swear by. I’ve made a post about this product before and it is the Indian Healing Clay Mask. This product is in powder form. You add equal parts of apple cider vinegar (or water if you have sensitive skin) and of the Clay powder. I love using this mask about once a week to give my face a super deep clean. For days when I have a breakout the size of Jupiter forming, I take a q-tip, dip it in apple cider vinegar and then into the powder and dot it on any problem areas. I cannot tell you how many times I have woken up and it has vanished that soon to be zit. Go back a bit to read more about this facial product. clayvine.jpg

Another easy thing you can do is make sure your pillow cases are nice and clean. I always put my hair in a pony tail to keep the oils from getting into my pillow. Another thing is I try and sleep on my back to prevent myself from getting unecessary oils into my pores, thus causing breakouts. 

Washing your makeup brushes on the regular is pretty obvious but why not include it. It is important thing to keep those breakouts at bay. After you get rid of that breakout, make sure to wash your brushes to make sure you don’t cause another one from forming. 

And of course, do not sleep with your makeup on. You need your skin to get a good nights rest too! And drink lots of water to keep your skin hydrated!
What do you do to control those breakouts?

Winter Skincare 2017


Hello hello!

Winter is here and while it’s not as cold as winter should be in TN this year (global warming), my skin has gotten adjusted to this time of the year so in some areas around my face, it is dry flaky.

Dry skin makes it near to impossible for my makeup to look good. I have gotten super into skincare this past year and have been looking for some more natural alternatives. 

So, I have gathered up a few of these products and have had successful results. One of these items I recently added but it really impressed me so it made my list of favorites. 

These are my winter skincare favorites!

The first is simply an aloe gel. I have been using this product all throughout the year every single day and I’m not even halfway through it. Aloe gel has become a staple in my morning and night skincare. It smells amazing, feels cooling, absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling fresh. Aloe in general has so many amazing health benefits and is a natural way to treat your skin and body. 


The next item I found impressed me to no end. Dermasil Nighttime Oil Free Facial Moisturizer has given my skin such moisture and smoothness that I could not believe it is sold in Dollar Tree of all places. One night, I had super dry skin around my nose and I saw this product in a drawer and thought I would try it. It is a super thick moisturizer, but it absorbed so quickly and it left that dry area around my nose full of moisture. I love this stuff! 


Facial brushes have been a big deal for quite sometime now and I recently made a post about one in particular. Vanity Planet’s Spin for Perfect Skin brush has made such a difference in the way my skin look and feels. I know that all of that left over makeup is coming right off when I use this brush. It comes with 4 different attachments for your face and body. I use the exfoilant head about twice and week and the daily head every night. I LOVE IT.


And the last product is simply almond oil. This is the last step in my nightly skincare routine and I instantly notice my skin get plumper and glowy. Almond oil has treated my acne scars while also adding moisture so I couldn’t love this product any more. 


After using these products, my face is ready for sleep and by taking out one or two products and adding an SPF moisturizer and primer, my face is ready for makeup!



Review:Vanity Planet Spin Brush


Hello hello! Let’s talk facial brushes. 

There are so many out on the market and I myself have gotten about 2 different ones before I came up the skincare planet that is…..Vanity Planet. 

Of course I have seen VP’s facial brushes all over Instagram and even YouTube and let me tell you, I had been lusting over their facial brushes for months before I gave in and bought myself one. 

Vanity Planet is always having these crazy amazing discounts on all of their products and when I bought my brush it was on sale for $20. At the moment, you can still get your for an awesome price although it might be slightly more. 

I picked up the Spin for Perfect Skin brush in Frosted Blue.

There are 4 different brush attachments that are included in the package:

  • Pumice stone 
  • Body Brush
  • Daily Facial Brush
  • Exfoliating Brush


I have been using this brush and everyday and all I can say is I LOVE IT.

I always feel like after I take my makeup off, I still have that stubborn makeup that just will not come off. This brush makes sure that there are no traces of foundation, eyebrow pomade…nothing!

I have also been using the body brush and It leaves my skin feeling so soft and refreshed. It makes my legs so smooth that when I go to shave them, I achieve closer shave.

 Overall, this brush is a big win for me and definitely a holy grail product. 

Vanity Planet, you da only planet in my solar system! 

Treat yourself this Christmas too!
