JUNE TOP 5 FAVORITES

Image
I know that i am a little late posting this but better late than never right.
This summer has not felt like summer for me. Maybe its because its just now getting into the 90's and we are in the middle of July.



Here are my top 5 favorites for the month of June and some of these are going to be my july favorites as well. So lets get started


 I won a giveaway from http://www.beauty4free2u.com/   and i have never tried any of the No7 products before. I have seen them in Ulta but not tried. SO when i found out that i won, which i was at work in the breakroom and only half the people that work there know that im a beauty influencer, so it was hard to contain myself but needless to say, i was over the moon.
So the first item is the No7 airbrush away primer. This is one of my current favorite primers. It makes anything that i put over it appear flawless. I love this.

My next favorites is also from No7 and its the radiant glow concealer   this concealer uses light reflecting particles and…

SO, you may or may not know this, but i love using Korean beauty products, especially  skincare products. So i am going to start doing a Korean and an American top 5 beauty products.

So today we are talking about my top 5 Korean beauty products for the month of June.






These are the 5 products that are my favorites this month. There was more but let's only focus on these 5.





THE BODY CHERRY BLOSSOM NOURISHING BODY LOTION  This lotion smells so good. It reminds me of the cherry blossom trees when I was in DC
This lotion is not too greasy and absorbs right Into your skin. 


SOFNON WILLOWHERB WASH REMOVE MOUSSE This foaming cleanser is an acne fighting one. It doesn't leave your skin dry feeling at all. Its a new favorite and must have.



SOMANG M CERADE PROFESSIONAL HAIR ESSENCE   I must admit that when I got this, I was a little nervous to use this. I thought it would leave my hair a little dry feeling. But it doesn't at all and I love it. It helps my hair and leaves it soft.

GET TO KNOW ME

So, I have been thinking and I thought that I would let you know more about myself.
First let me introduce myself,  my name is Laurie Ann, and I have an addiction or a love of all things beauty, from skincare and makeup and more.
I'm 44 years old, yes really, and I know, I don't look it. Why? Because I have a love for skincare but mainly for korean skincare products. I have done several videos on my routine and explain how it has reversed aging. The videos are up on my YouTube channel.
I have been married before and lost him. He pasted away due to a work accident. Then I spent 5 years  in a very abusive relationship, which I have also talked about on my YouTube channel as well.
I have spent the last almost 7 year with the most wonderful man. And yes I am marrying him in September. To say that I'm excited would be an understatement. Yes ladies, you can find Mr perfect if you have patients.
I have three children. Two twin girls and a son,  who I raised for years as a s…

Solvaderm: 8 Tips to Look and Feel Younger with Stemuderm & Eyevage

Image
While we are perfectly aware of the fact that aging is not something we can avoid, we still hope someone will create a magic potion that will stop it entirely. Unfortunately, that magic potion is only possible in the land of fairytales, but you are not completely helpless. Although you can’t halt the clock, there are many things you can do to minimize signs of aging or little tricks to follow to look and feel younger. 1.Start using sunscreen regularly The importance of sunscreen can’t be stressed enough, yet most people don’t even apply it daily. Sunscreens aren’t only reserved for sunbathing at the beach during hot summer days. You should use them every day because sun’s damaging UV rays can harm you even when you’re not reading the book by the ocean. According to a study whose findings were published in the Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology the UV exposure is responsible for 80% of aging signs on your face i.e. wrinkles and fine lines. Go one step furt…
