#favFriday: Clinique 

 My sister introduced me to Clinique when I was in high school and I’ve been loving it ever since. I’m not going to lie to you I’ve tried other products because Clinique can get a little expensive but then I realize I want to take of my skin so I need to stop shopping around for cheaper products. The other products never worked for me so I was just wasting money. 

Below I’ve listed my Clinique collection.

  1. Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer $47
  2. Face Bar Soap $14
  3. Exfoliating Scrub $20
  4. Even Better Skin Tone Correction Lotion with SPF 20 (mini kit) $15
  5. Even Better Dark Spot Correction Hand Cream with SPF 15 (mini kit) $15
  6.  Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion plus Èmulsion Hydration $26 
  7. Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser Mousse $20
  8. Lash Building Primer/Lash Doubling Mascara $15 and $16.50. Clinique no longer sells the combo together it’s sold separately. 

All together everything comes to $173.50 but it’s worth it. When you first purchase Cliqinue skin care you can get the 3 step which Cliqinue normally have a deal going on but when you start running out of products and you have to start purchasing them individually it will add up. 

Once you start using some of these products you’ll start thinking why in the world didn’t I use this sooner. For me a moisturizer save my skin. My skin feels really soft and healthy. My favorite product is number 4 on my list. This dark spot corrector works FAST!!!! My skin is really sensative so I get a lot of acne scars so when I purchased a sample in a kit with this corrector inside a few months back I fell in love. You only need a dot. Anyway I can go on and on about all these products. If you haven’t tried Clinique I hope you’ll try it out now. 

Now I’ll like to know what’s your favorite skin care line. If you don’t have favorite are you willing to give Clinique a try? Comment below.

#favFriday: Organic Coconut Oil

  
I’ve been using this product for a few months now and I absolutely love it! The reason why I wanted to try organic coconut oil because my hair is natural (which means I stop using chemicals to alter my hair from being chemically straight.) and I really don’t want to use any harsh chemicals in my hair. I use to use Softee Coconut Oil from Sally’s and I thought that was fine until I checked the ingredients so I looked for other options. 

Where would you find Organic Coconut Oil? The baking aisle in the grocery store of course! I purchased mind from Aldi for $4.99. One jar of the organic coconut oil fills 4 1/2 jars of the softee coconut oil! 

Other than using organic coconut oil for your hair here are some other uses for the product: 

  • Lotion (which I love because you do have to reapply during the day)
  • Eye makeup remover
  • Lip balm
  • Replacement for vegetable oil
  • Coffee flavoring
  • Natural bug spray 
  • Massage oil
  • Remove ear wax
  • Reduce blemishes (I need that) 
  • Eczema soother

Those are just a few check out Dr.Oz for 89 more uses for coconut oil. My softee coconut couldn’t be used for all of that! I checked out that link and I was shocked to see how many ways I can use this one product. $4.99 well spent! 

So have you ever used organic coconut oil before? If so what did you use the product for? Leave your answers in the comment section below.
