GSFM_4

Hello everyone~ Long time, no talk! I recently settled into college and have been trying to re-schedule in blogging. Right now, I really like posting on Tuesday and Friday, and at the moment, I have a bit of free time to write, edit, etc. 

Today I wanted to talk about the Glossier Soothing Face Mist that I got in the Glossier Phase #1 Kit (read about that here). I will be comparing it to the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater (read about that here) because it is based around using roses as the selling point ingredient.

I am gonna make this short, sweet, and simple. Both products contain the same amount of product, about 4 fl. oz. or 118 mL. However, the Mario Badescu Spray is less than half the price of the Glossier Soothing Face Mist, being $7.00 and $18.00 respectively. 

As for the product, both are fairly similar. I feel as if the Glossier Soothing Face Mist is more rose scented than the Mario Badescu, but I much prefer the scent of the Mario Badescu than the Glossier. Something that I enjoy about the Mario Badescu Spray is that it give a nice glow to skin whether it be on its own or with makeup. Whereas the Glossier Soothing Face Mist doesn't have that nice glow element. 

Overall, I would not repurchase this product because it is more expensive and does not work as well as the Mario Badescu Spray. It is much harder to get because it is only sold online when the Mario Badescu Spray is sold at Ulta and is much cheaper!

Happy Tuesday!

AMPMTAG

I have not done a tag in a very long time. The last tag I did was the Get to Know Me: Beauty Bloggers Tag...REVISITED (link), where I just made fun of my original Get to Know Me: Beauty Blogger Tag where I guest posted on Majotron and she guested on mine (link). That was almost three years ago, how time flies~

Today, I will be doing the AM/PM Tag. I originally saw this on The Celution (link) and told myself to do it, but then forgot, then saw it on the Like Neon Love (link) and had that 'Oh Yeah' moment. 

Enough rambling...let's get started. *plays 32-bit Super Mario music*

AM ROUTINE

What is your morning beauty routine?

I usually wake up from an alarm or an urge to use the bathroom, no joke! After that, I wash my face. Recently, I have been using the Neutrogena Gentle Foaming Face Cleanser (link) following The Nature Republic Aloe Vera (link) as essence and The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration (link).

Whats for breakfast?

Same thing every day. One egg with spinach and mushrooms seasoned with salt and pepper made into an omelet. A slice of wheat toast with almond butter and, alternating between, cookie butter and Apricot Jam.

Coffee or Tea?

Coffee with milk and Baileys Irish Cream Creamer.


How long does it take you to get out the door?

It is currently my summer vacation, so I have nowhere to go. However, it takes about 45 minutes to an hour. If I was still in high school I would be out within about 20-30 minutes. 


What is your go to makeup look on a fuss free morning?

Some mascara, concealer, some powder, and a lip balm. Maybe some blush if I am looking extra ghosty. 

PM ROUTINE

What is your evening beauty routine?

First I remove any makeup using my Garnier Micellar Water (link). Then I do my AM beauty routine finishing off with my Lioele Water Drop Sleeping Pack (link) or Daiso Hylauronic Acid Sleeping Pack (link).

Snacktime! What is in the bowl?

I don't really eat snacks in the evening, but I do enjoy a nice calming tea. My favorite tea at the moment is the Tazo Zen Green Tea


How do you wind down and prep for bed?

In a perfect world I would read a book, but in reality, I sit on my phone for like an hour. 


Cosy up! What are you wearing to sleep?

Pajama pants and a comfy t-shirt. 


What are some things you must do before hitting the hay?

I have to put my phone on do not disturb and just sleep. I am a pretty simple, fuss-free sleeper.

If you remember a month ago I did a post called Why I am switching from an Erin Condren Planner to a Bullet Journal (link) and I mentioned that I would give an update on how bullet journaling was going for me. So far, I have been very so much enjoying having a bullet journal. I was going to a picture heavy post, but would take forever to edit, write, and not to mention load on my website. I decided to do a Bujo (what all the cool kids call bullet journals) Flip Through Video for the sake of sanity.



A lot of my links for bullet journals and what not is in the description box of the video, so make sure to check that out along with the video.

Let me know in the comments what you think. Other than that...

Happy Friday ^_^

Happy Tuesday everyone! I thought I would do a small chatting post with everyone as I am wrapping up my summer vacation and heading off to college in less than three weeks. To get straight to the point, no, I am definitely not ready to go, but before I get into that I wanted to talk about something new I have been doing on Bloglovin' lately...

Recently, there has been a huge makeup trend/technique of applying face oil to the beauty blender and then adding foundation to get that very moist, dewy look. I know some popular face oils include the Farsali Rose Gold Elixir (link) by Farah Dhukai and the Tatcha Camellia Beauty Oil (link) is gaining momentum. One thing these oils have in common is that they are very expensive being $54 and $95 each, respectively. Another very expensive face oil would be the Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil (link), which is  $65, and it is the product I will talk about today [nice segway]. 

Starting off, I wanted to mention why I bought it. My sister and I suffer from dry skin and dehydrated/peeling skin on certain occasions. My sister has been using acne medication that drys out her skin even more, so foundations/concealers are very difficult to manipulate. We needed some sort of moisturizer because we were trying on a foundation at Sephora. This is the first thing I saw and I was like, Ok! We tried it, it moisturized her skin well, and we bought it! We try to live a spontaneous, adventurous life.

I don't really remember the last time I sat down and really did a Favorites Post. One of my goals this summer was to write a favorites post because it helps me wrap up the previous month and start fresh with the new one. If it is not obvious, I will be speaking of my June 2016 favorites

One of my most favorite videos to watch on YouTube are Favorites, especially from Clothesencounters (Jenn Im, link) and Claire Marshall (link), who are also mentioned in my post here. It just gives a nostalgic feeling and they are pretty relaxing to watch.
