I partnered with AVEENO® on this post. All opinions are 100% my own. I participated in the #AveenoDailyChallenge for three weeks.
For the last three weeks I participated in the #AveenoDailyChallenge using both AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash + AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion. The goal was to follow a daily cleanse + moisturize regimen with both products every day in order to accomplish two things – a healthy habit and softer, hydrated skin. Read more
Toner is one of the biggest misunderstood skin care products out there.
And to be honest, at one point when I was younger, I also believed some of these myths. What about you?
1. Toner is a cleanser.
This one bugs me the most. I’ve read blogger reviews where the person clearly didn’t understand the role toner plays in a skin care routine. They’ll say, “It worked great removing the makeup my normal cleanser leaves behind.” Yes, you may see remanents of your makeup on the cotton pad you just applied your toner with, but that’s because anything wet applied to a cotton pad and rubbed on your face will do that if you didn’t do a good job of cleansing in the first place.

The Michael Todd Soniclear is a game changer when it comes to exfoliating your skin to impart a healthy glow. I currently have both the Soniclear Classic and Soniclear Petite. Using the lowest setting, it’s gentle on my skin and I love how it tackles the blackheads on my nose. If you haven’t tried it yet – you definitely should.

When it comes to my skin and incorporating healthy habits into my daily life, I can sometimes get into a rut. Whether busyness gets me distracted, the stressors of daily life keep my sidetracked or sometimes, dare I say it, pure laziness gets ahold of me – it all wears on my skin.
As we begin to delve into the colder months, it’s not only important to begin incorporating healthy habits into our lifestyle, it’s imperative. From colds and flu to dry skin and eczema, it seems Fall and Winter are frought with ways to bring you down. So how can stay on top of it without slacking off? Read more

If you’re tired of reading reviews and trying to educate yourself about anti-wrinkle creams and serums from those barely in their 20s, then you’ve landed in the right place.
While including anti-aging products into your skin care regimen should begin in your 20s, collagen loss and those ghastly deep set wrinkles and fine lines are more prominent in mature skin.
So to be completely transparent – I’m 41 years old, didn’t really begin to use anti-aging products until I was in my 30s and have watched gravity make itself known on my face (and other areas, too, but that’s an entirely separate blog post.) Read more
A heady scent featuring wild-harvested Australian sandalwood and a hint of the intoxicating floral note of Australian Boronia.
Prior to getting Raw Spirit’s Desert Blush fragrance into my hands and (immediately, because OMG) onto my skin, I had never experienced the scent of Australian Boronia. As someone who is not really a fan of the earthy and woody fragrance of sandalwood, the sweet and floral aroma of the boronia literally MAKES this perfume. The floral scent is the perfect complement to the sandalwood, creating something so utterly inviting. Read more
