Why Christie Brinkley's Illuminating Facial Oil is my new skincare staple!RSS Feed
If you have been visiting my blog for any amount of time, you may know that I am a strong believer in the power of oil. I have learned that oil can be an amazing cleanser, moisturiser, and a whole list of possible uses when it comes to beauty and skincare. I was always taught that oil on your face was a "bad thing," but over the last three years I have been using essential oils and coconut oil on my skin, and have had the best skin of my life! I certainly never saw that coming at age 28.
I have used different "cleansing oils" on my face for the last few years, and I have discovered that the oils are more gentle, clean my skin better, and my skin truly looks more clear and radiant than it ever did when I used traditional facial cleansers. I was now prepared to hunt down more oil based skincare products, to see if I would continue to see bettering results. I was sent this lovely Illuminating Facial Oil from Christie Brinkley Beauty. Christie Brinkley is a shining star, never showing her age, so I thought that her line would be a great pleace to start, as my skin is not exactly as youthful as my early days!
I am in love with every aspect of this product from the gorgeous light blue glass bottle, to the convient dropper included in the bottle. The oil itself has a lovely formula that has a super light and extra silky texture! You are to apply this oil onto freshly cleansed skin, and to follow up with a moisturiser. I love that it actuallly does add illumination to the oarts of my face where the light hits, without looking greasy or artificial... it's like a perfect natural highlight! This serum smells lightly of something FRESH, that I cannot put my finger on, but with all of the botanical ingredients it could be a general combination of scents. I can apply my makeup without compromising the application or longwear of any of my foundations!
In conclusion, I highly reccomend that any skin type give this luxurious facial oil a try! It has done wonders to balance my skin. I live in Florida, where humidity and heat often distress my skin, I feel as if this oil has been repairing and even protecting my skin from further drying or damage! I hope that this product will be in my life for years to come, and I cannot wait to try more of Christie Brinkley's amazing skincare line
Natural deodorant has been a regular staple in my life for about two years now, and I have never even considered looking back. I strongly encourage my readers to look into the connections between traditional Anti-perspiriants and breast cancer, at your own will. That being said, I found a brand that worked flawlessly for me! Scmidt's Deodorant comes in a wde variety of scents, that actually work! I love the orginal formula, but some find the formula to be slightly irritaing to the armpits, people with senstive skin (My boyfriend, for example.) He loved that he could work in a hot kitchen all day and that he could depend on this product to do it's job. The only issue was that his armpits were not too happy with the baking soda in the original formula.
He was sad that he had to go back to traditional deodorants, because in his opinion Schmidt's did work better! After about two weeks have gone by, I am startled and excited by a post from Schmidt's on Facebook! This post was featuring their brand new sensitive skin formula, it was as if they had read my mind, and answered an unspoken prayer! I jumped imidiately at the chance to write them an e-mail asking if they would like to be featured on my blog... boy, am I one lucky ducky! Schmidt's was kind enough to send my Boyfriend a Tea Tree Stick (His very favorite essential oil!) and a Geranium Stick for me.
It is amazing to me that they were able to formulate something even more amazing than the original formula! This stick glides on like butter! I have never used a silkier deodorant in my life! The scent was gorgeously natural and clean. I could go on and on, but the real kicker is the fact that I have not experienced one single case of irritation or razor burn since I began using this formula.
The part of this exerience that was the most shocking and exciting was trying the Fragrance Free stick. I did not have incredibly high hopes for any deodorant that is fragrance free, let alone a natural variety. I was amazed when I used one swipe on each underarm, and over 24 hous later, 24 sweaty, humid, Floridaian hours later, I was dry and ordor free!
I so happy that I discovered this brand, and I must say that each new product launch makes me happier than the last! I also wanted to let you all know that Schmidt's has released a brnd new fragrance in the original formula. The fans voted and we now have Rose + Vanilla! Schmidt's was kind enough to send me a (new) travel sized stick in this scent, that I will be giving away on Instgram as a part of a huge eauty bundle! Make sure to follow me @AmbeeNicole88 !
Even better than the orignial!
