Review; Juju bar by Drunken Elephant

When it comes to skin care I really try and find pieces that don't have too much hype. Although on a rare occasion I get caught in it, I do my best! So when I was shopping on Sephora I saw this product and I had never heard about it, but it looked and sounded super interesting. It claims to be a "three-in-one bar that deeply cleanses, subtly exfoliates and heals skin". And that sounds like a perfect product for me. 

In the past few weeks I have found my skin to be lacklustre and a bit prone to break outs. And with it being spring and summer right around the corner I prefer to wear a lot less makeup, when I do wear it. So I like my skin to be on its A game. 

This is the bar, let's just take a second to appreciate its beautiful packaging... Okay, back to the post! 

I was so excited I could not wait to use it the night I had received it in the mail, so this is the bar after almost a week of use. To use this you simply wet your hands, rub the Juju bar between your hands and then massage the milky lather into your skin. You will be ultra surprised at how luxurious it feels! There are tiny little bits in there that exfoliate your skin and they feel amazing. It's perfect for everyday use. (I have been using it two times a day)

The results; my skin feels incredible. I have a glow back in my skin and I've noticed that on my nose where my skin was feeling a bit congested is clearing up dramatically. I have also noticed that my pores feel tighter and that my products are sinking into my skin instead of sitting on top of it. I love this product! 

Has anyone else tried this product? Let me know what you think or if you have any recommendations!

Wen Cleansing Conditioner| Review

Hi Everyone! So if you have been following me since the beginning you would have seen my hair ombre, curly, straight, ombre again and then straight and dyed back to a natural dark brow/black. So taking all that in, my hair is pretty dry. Curly hair is naturally really dry, but when you add heat damage to that, it only makes it worse, as well as bleach. See where I'm going here? It's just not good.

I have tried a lot of products, and have been interested in Wen for a long time. I have seen in infomercials, which I am sure everyone has. But I hate how gimmicky it seemed. After a lot of fussing I was in a Sephora and spotted it! They had the whole kit, but I was really just interested in the cleansing condition. It was sulphate free and in turn a lot less drying then other shampoo, conditioner combo's that I was using.

I purchased the cleansing conditioner when I had my curly hair and it was amazing, I used it to wash and as a leave in. I loved it so much, my hair was healthier and soft as well as the smell of the product is amazing. I found it super easy to use for my curls. Then when I started to wear my hair straight, I did not feel the need to use it any more (I had finished my first bottle in 2 months). My hair was dry and breaking, just like it was before I started using it. I went out and bought a second bottle and noticed a difference with my first use. It really is an amazing product, it is super hydrating and conditioning, as well as I have found that it keeps the colour in my hair like it claims to do. With the almost 40$ price tag, I think it is really worth it if you need the regular moisture to your hair. As well is saves you time in the shower and money from buying other products. This is a must for me!

What are your thoughts on the Wen Cleansing Conditioner?

Berry Cheek | Outofashion

Due to my skins dehydration and everyones skin getting dull during the winter/end of winter months (I live in Canada and it is still pretty chilly these days *Sigh*) I just find I need to add some type of colour back into my face. I am not one for eye shadow, I focus on my lashes. So adding in colour is done through my cheeks or my lips. In the rare occasion I am not wearing a red, dark red or plum tone lip colour I like to add a pop of colour on my cheek.

 I wanted to try something different- a plum/ berry toned cheek. I searched around Sephora which is my go-to beauty store. I didn't find anything I loved. I decided to check out MAC, which is usually my last resort.Don't get me wrong, they have good products, I just never have any luck with them and the girls that work at my location come on super strong and I always feel uncomfortable. But anyways, I found this beautiful matte berry colour called Stubborn.

This is a prolong wear blush with a beautiful plumy-berry colour. I was actually terrified when I got home (Again, the girls at my MAC aren't super nice, so I usually just grab something and go!) It is a very pigmented bold colour that if not blended will leave brush lines!

After much fussing around with brushes, I fell in love with the colour! It adds a warm plum flush that just makes my sad dehydrated skin look happy!!! I thought it was so unique and fun. This look is super wearable, But the blush can be added with a heavier hand and be more bold as well!

What do you guys think? Would you wear this look!

Skincare essentials

I've been through some very rough times with my skin since I was young. I have always had very acne prone skin, that I never knew how to take care of. I have always looked at the drugstore for my skincare but never had the best results. I have now came across the problem; my skin is dehydrated. Its weird to think that my skin couldn't have enough moisture or "water" in it, being that my skin is oily as well. I have tried so many product since learning this. I have discovered through testing and testing, the products that work for me.

Origins Make a Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Moisturizer - This moisturizer is the bomb diggity!! I love it. It claims that it is "an invigorated moisturizer to help repair dry and dehydrated skin". That is exactly what it does. I use this at night after I cleanse and then again in the morning. My skin feels happy and moisturized. The product is a perfect consistency, its not as heavy as a thick white cream, but its not too wet and thin either. It has a very herbal smell which is not too strong. I highly recommend this to anyone with dehydrated skin.

Hourglass N° 28 Primer Serum- I originally bought this because I thought it was the primer that everyone was raving about. But it is not, I purchased this before the moisturizer and I was using it under my make up as a primer. I made my skin silky and smooth, It is an oily serum texture. I wasn't in love with it. Then I started using my Origins moisturizer and then I loved it. I now use it at night after I moisturize (I just prefer it overtop) and then in the morning the same way. It does help my foundation last, but I think it is because it is treating my skin. It has 14 essential oils including lavender, vanilla, orange peel plus so much more it also has vitamins. I just love how healthy my skin feels after using this. 

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm- I first got interested in this because of Barbra from ThePersianBabe  she mentioned it in a video, so I had to go get it. Everything she uses on her skin works on mine, so it seemed right to go grab it. It is a hard oil/ balm product that is used to take off your make up and cleanse your skin. It is absolutely amazing. You take a small amount of the product into your hands and melt it then rub it into your skin to remove all your make up. I think wet my hands with warm water and rub it into my skin. The product becomes milky and I continue to remove it until it is all gone. I then use a cleanser after to remove any access product (Which there never is, I'm just being safe) I only have 2 or 3 uses of this product left and I am going to repurchase another one very soon.

Hope you guys can take away some products from that! Let me know how it goes and if you have any skin care essentials that I should check out!

Hi guys! So I thought I would give a quick update as to what I have been up to, and why I have had a lack of post lately!

 I made a youtube channel ; I am putting time into that and most ideas I have, I am putting into videos instead of blog posts! But I will be trying to juggle both better in the next couple weeks! 
(My channel is Outofashionn)

I started working my other job as well ; So now I am working 6 days a week! Which is tiring!!! I find it hard to feel inspired when I am so so tired! Its also hard to make time for a video/post when I work all the time! But I am doing my best! 

My hair change! ; So I have started wearing my hair curly! I am so not use to this. So I feel a bit self conscious and awkward. As well, I have not figured out how to make it "Work" on camera. I am pushing myself because I really love the look of big, curly, full hair! (I think this is the major reason for the lack of posts!)

So with all that being said!! I did post a haul on my youtube channel earlier today! So check it out and let me know what you think!!

Here are a couple pictures of my natural hair! I have an appointment downtown at The Curl Ambassadors on Friday! So I'm sure my curls will be a lot happier after that as well!


Okay! So that is it for today's post! Enjoy the rest of your week and I will see you soon!!
