the one with July favorites

This months beauty favs are pretty basic and mostly have to do with my face. I think I’ve finally accepted that my face is out of control . . . it has changed pretty dramatically in the past couple years and it’s time that I make some MAJOR changes to my routine. For as long as I can remember it was normal to dry, and I never really had a problem with breakouts. Now it is oily . . . so oily . . . and I’m almost constantly broken out on my chin and cheeks. I think I’ve found something that helps (coconut oil), and I’m going to do a whole post on it Monday. But for now here are some things I’ve found that I love in my journey for a new skin care routine. . .

beauty favorites

Burt’s Bee’s Grapefruit wipes – these bad boys are great for taking makeup off. they get all of it and don’t leave my face feeling wet and gross so when it comes time for my cleanser I actually feel like I’ve gotten a deep clean – not just taken the film from the makeup remover off.


Clinique Toner 3 – a toner is one of the things I decided to add to my routine. the silicic acid is hopefully helping pull out the gross stuff from my pores.


Baby lips in electro shock – I have always heard great things about this stuff, but never took the plunge. well with changing up products my lips got a little dry and  . . . weird . . . so I needed constant hydration, but during the day I wanted color. so I finally took the plunge. so thankful.


essie watermelon – it’s summer . . . the nails must be done . . . and I’m loving this color.

What are you favorites for july? any suggestions on taking care of my oily face and adult acne?

as tina fey (who I call liz lemon) says “I don’t wanna brag, but I have the chin of a teenager!”

      everything about this makes me feel better! I’m so nervous anything new is going to make my face break out more so it’s good to know someone else likes them 🙂 and also that I’m not only person who waited so long to try baby lips
