Clear Skin Please?! RMS Beauty Oil

Skincare is important because faces are noticed first – LE DUH!

Midway through my twenties (AHHH, I know!…calm down.. breathe) I’ve noticed that my skin is changing a bit. I’ve been recommended to try face oils instead of my typical face creams as moisturizers.

Oil products contain essential fatty acids that skin needs to stay hydrated. Oil also acts as a barrier, protecting against extreme temps (sunshine – for all of us sunbathers), dry climates & over-cleansing.

If you couldn’t already tell, I have a ridiculous obsession with skincare and beauty products. RMS Beauty has a TO-DIE-FOR beauty oil that after receiving a sample of – I ABSOLUTELY NEEDED. OBVI.

Here’s a little FYI about your face & oil. Skin oil is MUCH DIFFERENT than plant oils! RMS Beauty Oil bridges the gap between the two. SORRY THIS IS BORING, but I’ll give you a quick 411. When your oil content isn’t balanced, your skin starts pumping out sebum (basically it’s stuff that clogs pores & causes breakouts). Eww. SOOOO – when you cleanse your face a million times because you have breakouts, you’re stripping your skin’s natural oils. Your skin reacts by producing more oil to compensate for what’s been lost. That sucks, huh?! But it makes sense.

A quality face oil like RMS Beauty Oil will replenish your skin with essential fatty acids & moisture! Win. When the oil balance is back in check, those overactive sebaceous glands (yeah that’s a freakin’ weird word and no, I didn’t make it up) can take a break & your skin will get healthier and definitely clearer.

The RMS beauty oil is a higher end oil – and as with most all of my opinions – quality is worth paying a higher price for. At $74.00 per bottle (I used a 20% off coupon code for Earth Day!), this oil is providing you with everything that your skin needs. All organically & naturally. AND IT’S LIGHTWEIGHT. You’ll only need about 3 drops to rub into your face (day & night), so your 30 mL bottle will go a long way!

My skincare obsession continues…

Flat Hair NO MORE!

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is the bomb dot com for all textures of hair, and it’s AMAZING on fine, thin hair types like mine!

Oribe Dry Texturizing is a genius invisible dry spray that instantly fluffs hair for max volume. Big, voluminous hair, betches!!!! The miracle worker spray also absorbs oil at the roots and last for hours on end. I’ve tried it in my insanely thin/fine hair and it gives it “body” as if I have rich, luxurious locks. I mean —— not really, but it’s a great “fake it til ya make it!”

Step 1: Blow Dry or Naturally “Air Dry” Hair

Woof, boring & dull hair washed last night.

Don’t straighten it to begin with, or the curls will be more difficult to hold. I air dried mine, because it has slight natural curl. You honestly don’t even need to curl your hair – if you just want it “BIG,” you can spray upward and tease your roots. (Especially if you’re blessed with thick gorgeous hair). Voila! Even Bigger Hair!

Step 2: Section Off Pieces of Hair & Curl Using a Wand

I use a Enzo Milano Clipless Curling Iron 1″ . This wand is the best quality wand I’ve ever used and the 1″ is perfect size for the curls that you want.

First off, I’d like to commend my selfie ability here…wanding your hair takes 2 hands – I’m selfie-ing while doing this. LOSER, sorry. I section off pieces of hair on my head, start with the bottom layer, then middle layer,  sides & top. The curls hold not too tight, not too loose. They’ll fall naturally to perfection.

Step 3: After All Hair is Curled, Flip Head Upside Down – LOL

Step 4: Spray Away with your Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

Spray upward to create the body that you want – it will literally stay that way. Play with it because it also does not make your hair hard like traditional hairspray does.

Step 5: Enjoy the entire day or night worry free with bigger hair that stays!

I use this look a lot because it’s great for “dirty hair” or 2nd day hair & it is quick & easy!

CRAZY FACE 😉

Living Luminizer

There’s much to say about organic beauty products – like, they’re actually good for your skin! There’s also much to say about J.Crew…. And my obsession with it! J.Crew is featuring the “Signature J.Crew Model Glow” right now & basically, always.

These girls look effortlessly flawless – such clean, crisp and perfect faces. Just the right amount of dewiness to create a fresh look that will never go out of style. J.Crew reveals that their secret weapon to making these girls look this way — organic beauty line RMS Beautymore specifically – the “Living Luminizer.”

“the models look like they are lit from within.”

Rushed to J.Crew.com to find out that they were sold out of this glorious goop. Luckily the RMS Beauty website was in stock, shipped immediately and I had my luminizer within 2 days! Now that is quality service.

Application – you’re going to want to only use a little bit! Apply with your fingers in a dabbing motion. It will feel a little thick or “dewy” at first. If you swipe it on, it will remove your foundation or other make-up. No swiping!

Brighter! I love showing DIY beauty tips/tricks because it just feels so much more OK to see it done on a “normal” DEFINITELY NOT NORMAL person than to see it done on a more than gorge J.Crew model. I look exactly like the J.Crew models in the look book below, right?! This wears really well throughout the day as well and I highly recommend it!
