I wasn’t very nice to my skin over the summer. I was out in the sun a lot, and my skin really took a beating. Plus, when I was traveling, I didn’t stick to my skin care routine; which caused chaos on my skin. It’s time to repair, reset, and revitalize my skin for the fall season.

As you know, I am a huge fan of Estee Lauder. Her skin care is out of this world. For my nighttime skin care routine, I am using Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair in order to repair the damage I have done to my skin. The Estee Lauder Intense Reset Concentrate is perfect for resetting my skin to where it should be. Lastly, this night cream is a-ma-zing! In order to revitalize my skin, I am using Estee Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme + Night cream. It is fabulous! It really leaves my skin moisturized and feeling good! Love!

My daytime skin care routine is still the same-for now. I will keep you posted on how I update that as the weather starts to change. As for nighttime, I am already doing my fall routine because my skin needs it now! If you are looking to repair, reset, and revitalize your skin, definitely check out Estee Lauder’s Night Repair system. It is pure perfection.

Spring 2019 is here! This means it is time to move away from our warm, heavy winter fragrances, and into something more fresh and spring-like. . .or is it?

For the spring 2019 season, we are seeing a resurgence of the heavier fragrances from the late 1980s and early 1990s. This was the era where you left a trail of scent in your wake. As fashion tends towards this era, so does fragrance! Get ready to pair your bold hues, biker shorts, and puffy sleeves with vetiver; and be sure to leave a trail.

My signature fragrance in the early to mid-1990s was Gio de Giorgio Armani. It was a heavy vetiver scent which always left a trail. When fragrance softened up in the late 1990s, vetiver was left for men’s cologne only; even then, it was watered down. This season, perfumer’s are featuring the heavy fragrance note, and designing entire perfumes around vetiver! I think I am in love!!!

So, for the spring 2019 season, look for medium to heavy fragrances. Look for something warm, leathery, and woody. Mix those florals with something slightly masculine, and always leave a trail!

I went smelling, and found a few fabulous scents which embody different facets of the fragrance trends this spring season. There is something for everyone in my collage above! Find your ideal floral, citrus, or vetiver! I hope you love these as much as I do!

Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment review

estee lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment review

As someone who has celebrated the anniversary of her 39th birthday for a few years now. . .a-hem. . .my skin is at a phase in life where fine lines, and dark spots, are starting to be visible. As much as I would like to pretend none of this is on my face, it is! I can’t ignore it when I look in the mirror.

Although I have decided to stay 39 forever, my skin knows my true age has a four in front of it. A-hem, pretend you didn’t read that. Anyway. . . retinol is one of the most effective treatments in combating wrinkles and helping one’s skin defy age. Since I aim to defy my age, this is a treatment with my name written all over it!

Estee Lauder has been one of my favorite go-to skin care and makeup brands since I was in high school. They always use advanced technology to create the most amazing products which actually work! I’m currently addicted to their eye cream, which I swear, has reduced fine lines around my eyes over time. Since their eye cream works magical wonders on my skin, I was excited when Estee Lauder sent me their Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment to test out; I knew it would be fabulous!!

When using a retinol treatment, it is good to avoid going out in the sun. This is the one good thing about all the grey, rainy weather we have been having over the past month. Since there are zero sunny days, it has been the perfect time to use this Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment on my facial skin. Of course, even if the sun isn’t shining, it is important to use a strong SPF on your skin during the day because the rays can still get through the clouds and you will need to protect your skin while using a retinol treatment even more; but I digress, back to this fabulous product!

I have fallen in love with Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment. It has evened out my skin tone, reducing dark spots so that they can hardly be seen. This is really important for me since I shy away from wearing foundation, preferring a foundation powder in my daily makeup routine. I want my skin to have a clean, even look. This product helps me keep that up!

The Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment is a great item to keep in your beauty arsenal if you have dark spots and/or fine lines/wrinkles. I’m all about using products, rather than getting injections, to keep skin looking it’s best. So, if you like to be natural too, this is a must have!

Have you tried retinol before? What did you think?
