Stay Young with Kenra CC Hair Creme

Hey y’all! Is everyone staying warm out there? It has gotten COLD here at night. The other night, I went to bed with wet hair, and I thought I was going to freeze! I had to get up and turn the heat on. I have to say though, I think not using heat on my hair is one of the things that keeps it the most healthy. I never use a hair dryer, in fact, I probably haven’t used one in 6 months. It’s actually good for me, because my hair gets HUGE and hard to manage when I dry it. Another thing that keeps my hair healthy? Kenra Platinum Snail CC Creme.

Kenra was kind enough to send me this product to try, and I couldn’t be more excited. Fall/winter can take a toll on our hair. It’s important to use products that are beneficial to me and my hair goals.

My Hair Goals:

healthy, shiny, no tangles, easy to manage

My Hair Product Goals:

lightweight, easy-to-use, doesn’t cause buildup

For me, anti-aging products for skin are something that I have been focusing on lately. My 30th birthday is coming up next year (YIKES!), so aging has already been on my mind. One thing I hadn’t really thought of was aging of my hair.

My hair has changed drastically over the past couple of months. I feel like it has gotten less oily, which is amazing. I used to have to wash it every day growing up, but maybe that’s part of getting older. As it’s gotten longer, it has helped spread the oil out so it’s not concentrated at my scalp…if that makes sense.

Snail Essence is a Korean beauty secret that is present in this Kenra CC Creme. Don’t worry, no snails were harmed in the making of this product. I had to go read about this product myself before even attempting to write this blog post. This snail essence is powerful! This CC Creme fights aging of your hair in 10 ways:

dulling, thinning, breakage, frizz, dryness, elasticity, porosity, scalp irritation, unmanageability, coarse texture

I would love to know how you keep your hair in tiptop shape for winter, let me know in the comments.



Thanks to Kenra for sending me this Snail CC Creme to try. As always, all thoughts & opinions are my own.

See the Difference with Vitamin C + MyChelle

Hey everyone! I hope you all are enjoying this cooler weather. I’m so thankful that it’s not 80 degrees when I leave work at night. And how are enjoying the time change? I’m loving the extra hour of sleep I get; however, it feels like it’s SO late all the time when it gets dark at 5pm. I have found myself going to bed earlier which is KEY to a healthy body. My friends over at MyChelle sent me three products to try for healthier skin and I want to share them with you today. I can definitely see a difference with the Vitamin C contained in these powerful skincare products.

If you know, you know that I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. I love clean, sleek packaging and MyChelle definitely fits the bill. But what I love even more is products that work. I love products that do what they claim to do.

First up, the “Perfect C Radiance Lotion” is a handy moisturizer that is best when used daily. When moisturizers are light enough to be used daily, they are a must-have in my opinion. I do not like putting on a heavy moisturizer that weighs my skin down.

About the Perfect C Radiance Lotion:

This velvety-rich, nutrient- and moisture-restoring lotion delivers a potent 12% dose of L-Ascorbic Acid combined with Plant C-Stem™ and Licorice Extract to help brighten and protect skin from the effects of environmental pollution for a smoother and more luminous complexion.

The “Perfect C Pro Speed Peel” is up next. When I can get spa-like benefits in an at-home peel, count me in. My schedule is demanding. I’m either usually at work on on the road, so this product is perfect for me. After cleansing my face, I apply this product.

About the Perfect C Pro Speed Peel:

An Industry First! This one-step professional Vitamin C peel, is formulated with a powerful dose of 10% L-Ascorbic Acid, 1% L-Lactic Acid, Plant C-Stem™ and Retinal to deliver youthful, glowing skin. Formulated with 25% Citrus Fruit fragrant puree, in only one minute, this fact-acting peel retexturizes skin while gently exfoliating to deliver youthful, soft, and glowing skin.

Lastly, I follow with “Bio-Firm Hydrogel Concentrate” before I head off to bed. This powerful concentrate is one that helps skin to regenerate while I sleep! When a product works without much effort from me, I’m sold.

About Bio-Firm Hydrogel Concentrate:

A concentrated 2% Hyaluronic Acid moisture-binding gel that melts to instantly smooth and fi rm skin. Packed with potent Alpine Nunatak™ Plant Stem Cells and Crocus Chrysanthus Bulb Extract to help fi rm and provide deep nourishment and hydration.

What I really like about these products is the care that MyChelle puts into creating effective treatments without compromising on ingredients.  All MyChelle products are Vegetarian, Cruelty-free, and Free of Phthalates, Parabens, Sulfates, Ureas, Artificial Fragrances and Colors, Petroleum, GMOs, and Gluten.

 Thanks for reading & following! XO,

The One Soap-Free Cleanser You Need: Exuviance

Hey y’all! Temperatures have finally dropped around here where it’s not 80 degrees in the fall. This weekend the high is only in the 40’s! For Arkansas, that’s cold. I’m thinking Uggs & blanket scarf weather ;) I’m back today with another product that will definitely benefit your skin throughout the harsh fall/winter months. If you didn’t catch it, be sure to check out my “intro to fall beauty” post here. In today’s post, I’m sharing the one soap-free cleanser you need from Exuviance.

Take it from me, it is SO much easier to keep your skin hydrated before winter arrives. It is much harder to try to get moisture back into your skin after you’ve already lost it. I have made this mistake several times, mostly when I was younger and didn’t realize how important taking care of my skin was. If there is one thing that dries skin out, it is soap. Thankfully, Exuviance has developed a soap-free cleanser that works wonders on my skin.

What I look for in a cleanser:


*safe for my sensitive skin

The most important thing for me in cleanser is that it deep cleans. It is a bonus if it removes makeup and doesn’t just smear it all over my face. I don’t like having to wash my face more than once, and this Exuviance cleanser works for me.

More benefits include:

*anti-aging properties through Alpha and Poly Hydroxy Acids

*exfoliation & clarification through Glycolic Acid (AHA) and Gluconolactone (PHA)

*safe for all skin types, even sensitive skin

How To Use:

This product is made to be used every morning and every night. If I can tell you one thing about skincare, it is super important to be consistent! I will notice that my skin can break out super easily if it’s dry or if I’m not consistent with my cleanser. One myth I’ve dispelled is the fact that moisturizer might make my skin break out. When washing your face with a great cleanser like this one, be sure to apply a nice layer of moisturizer on top. This step is important to keep your skin hydrated. And don’t worry, moisturizer won’t cause you to break out. The only thing that causes me to break out is going to bed with a full face of makeup on ;) Don’t be like me! Wash your face consistently each morning and evening.

Benefits I’ve Seen:

I’ve used this products for 2 weeks now. I didn’t realize how harsh other soap-based cleansers were probably treating my skin. I found myself looking forward to washing my face, because it felt so soft and clean afterwards. I think it’s important to use this cleanser morning and night to see the full benefits it can bring. My skin is hydrated, fresh, and bright. I have had a couple of comments stating how bright & alive I look when showing up at work. This is exciting, because no one wants to have dull skin in the fall/winter. My sensitive skin has found its match in this soap-free cleanser. I’m obsessed with the benefits and look forward to trying out more Exuviance products.

How To Purchase:

Head over to the Exuviance website and check out their great supply of skincare products. This specific soap-free cleanser can be purchased here.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the benefits of this cleanser. I only share products here that I’ve tried and LOVE. I would like to hear how you keep your skin healthy & hydrated this fall & winter. Let me know in the comments below ;)
