I have been using the UNBLEMISH skin regimen for almost two months now and I love it. If you look above at the 1st row of photos (taken on Sep. 18th before using r+f)  you can see the redness and uneveness in my skin, patches of little pimples and irritation. In the photos of row 2  (taken on Oct. 20th) you can see how the redness has calmed down and the patches of pimples are gone.  If you look at the 3rd row (taken on Nov. 10th) you can see that my skin is clearer than before except for one little pimple, and that the coloration of my skin has evened out. If you look at the last row I have make up on (taken on Nov. 12th) and my skin practically looks flawless. I’m obsessed with this product and I do still  however have the occasional pimples which is normal especially since my skin is still getting used to the product. I can’t wait for even better results later on down the road!

My favorite part about R+F is being on a routine! I know that I can get up every morning and follow my four steps and repeat before I go to bed at night. My favorite product would have to be the UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfer Wash, I love how thick and cleansing it feels! I also love how the R+F regimens can be customized to meet every individual needs including mine! I did end up substituting the UNBLEMISHED toner for the SOOTHE sensitive skin treatment because my skin was too sensitive for the toner and my skin has been loving it! A tip I suggest is to allow yourself the first two weeks to get use to the products, I suggest using it every other morning. Once your skin feels like it has adapted move on to using it every morning! Once I got to the 2nd month I started using the product both in the AM and PM. I did this just to be on the safe side because of how sensitive my skin was when I first started! Now it’s a breeze and I’m loving R+F!

{ MAC: Candy Yum -Yum, Syrup, Rebel, Heroine } { Eos: Strawberry } {Stila: Fiore ,Amore, Fiery} { Butter London LIPPY: Dahling & Queen Vic}
Lately, I have had a fetish with lip colors and usually I will let y’all know the colors I am wearing when I post an outfit. This time I figured I’d let y’all know what lipsticks are in my makeup bag! I use all MAC makeup including their lipstick! At first, I thought it was crazy to pay $16+ for a tube but it was totally worth it! Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is amazing and actually does last a long time! When I’m in the mood for a gloss I use Butter London LIPPY and for just a chapstick I love Eos!
In the fall, I wore MAC’s Rebel & Heroine and Stila’s Amore & Fiery a ton! I couldn’t get enough of them! But now that it’s finally Spring MAC’s Candy Yum -Yum is my new obsession. It makes me feel so retro and bright! I also love Stila’s Fiore for a hotter pink and an all day wear! For a subtle everyday color and summertime favorite I use MAC’s Syrup! I also love Eos Strawberry, or one of the LIPPY colors if I’m in a glossy mood!

Are you fan of any lip colors I don’t know about? If so please share, I love new colors 🙂

It’s time for me to start preparing for Spring Break, and if you haven’t noticed I have a thing for green bags! I’ve been using Jergen’s Natural Glow every other day to build up my tan and it really does work, I’m not lying! Mac’s Candy Yum Yum lipstick is a must pink for spring, and will be on my lips! I will also be wearing Essie Blanc on my fingers and Bikini So Teeny on my toes, with a great pair of wedges or sandals!
Happy Spring Break Season!
