With the holidays right around the corner, beauty has really been on my mind. I think at the end of each year, I tend to look back on how I changed. This year, I’ve been making an effort to take better care of my skin. I feel like we pretty much skipped fall and went straight into winter. There is nothing more important than keeping your skin moisturized in the cold weather! Today I wanted to share my experience with a new tool I got, the Onyx Youth Magnet Mask.

First of all, I feel like I should be singing a song about magic because that’s what this mask is. I have to admit that I was skeptical if the magnet would really even work at taking the mask off. Well, I can tell you that it worked perfectly. It was seriously mesmerizing to watch! The packaging is beautiful, and is perfectly boxed.

As you know, I turned 30 this year. I wanted to crawl under a rock, but I don’t figure that will make me any younger ;) One of the major ways to prevent wrinkles is through hydrated, moisturized skin.

So, how does this product work? I’m glad you asked! I did some pretty extensive research before slathering this product all over my face. I’m a chemistry nerd, so I know that this product must be iron-rich. I was right. This is what makes the mask able to dip deep into pores and dig out impurities. With the included magnet wand, you get to watch the magic. What I love about this mask kit is that it comes with covers for the magnet wand. Other products do not, so this definitely is a game-changer. No more mask all over your hands and under your nails!

What are the ingredients? Here’s a photo that shows just which botanical oils are in this mask:

The mask also contains all-natural Korean volcanic minerals and an anti-aging amino acid complex. Keep in mind that this mask is safe for even the most sensitive skin types (like mine).

How can I purchase this kit? I’ve got a special deal for you. Use code “bemagnetic” here to receive 20% off your kit. #MagnetBeauty

What if I have questions? I know that any of your friends or ladies in your family would love to try out this mask! It makes a great gift. If you have any questions about my experience or want to know more, email me or contact me on Twitter!

Thank you so much to Onyx for my super soft & hydrated skin!

It’s Monday! Where in the world did the weekend go? And can we talk about this weather? Here in Arkansas, it’s 40 one day then 70 then 50. You can’t dress for this weather, because it’s cold in the morning but hot in the afternoon. I refuse to let it get to me though, because I’m all about the fall clothes ;) Today I wanted to share my September Sephora PLAY box with you…

HELLO bright pink silky bag. This immediately put a smile on my face when I opened it. Sephora continues to surprise me with great, high quality samples in every box.

I was excited to see a mini version of the Benefit Gimme Brow. I use this product on the daily. It helps get rid of that “just woke up” morning brow look!

I’m in a love-hate relationship with eyeliner right now. I haven’t found anything that I LOVE, so I’m going to try this Sephora Eye Pencil. I need something that stays on all day and doesn’t smear. I will keep you updated.

Since fall has arrived with a bang, I hope I can get some more sleep since it gets darker quicker. This Algenist night pressed serum is going on my nightstand and I’m going to try it for 10 days.

Urban Decay must’ve read my mind, because I’m looking for a fall lip color. This liquid lipstick is a pretty brown/red/maroon if that makes sense. Hopefully you’ll see it make an appearance in an outfit post soon.

To keep your skin hydrated this fall, I recommend this belief Aqua Bomb gel cream. Its extensive hydration is just what the doctor ordered.

Shoutout to bumble & bumble for this shampoo and conditioner duo. I always take these packets on trips with me, because they are easy to pack and don’t take up much room.

Most versatile product: Gimme Brow (primer/definer/color in one)

Product I’m most excited about: Algenist Night Pressed Serum

Happy Wednesday. Before I start, I wanted to say that my blog posts got put on hold after the horrible tragedy in Las Vegas. I could not bring myself to post for a couple of days, because I was just in shock. Join me in praying for the victims & their families. I just don’t understand what our world is coming to.

I’m totally on a Texas-sized travel hangover from my trip to Dallas this weekend. I can’t wait to tell you all about it for the next couple of weeks on “Travel Tuesday” here on the blog, so stay tuned! I found the BEST nail salon I’ve ever been to and picked up some goodies at Bendel’s so you’ll want to read along. BUT for today, I wanted to share my fall skin prep routine with Colleen Rothschild.

Colleen Rothschild was a new skincare brand to me, but let me tell you…I’m in love. I have promised only to share products that I use and believe in here on the blog, so this is one of those brands. I have been using these products for 2 weeks now, and I have gotten so many compliments on the brightness of my skin.

I think it’s important to remember that not everyone has the same skincare needs. Some of us are oily, some of us are dry, and some of us (me) are combination. My #1 skin concern is my dark spots. I have lots of freckles from when I was younger and didn’t always wear sunscreen. I am making a conscious effort to lighten these spots to create a blank canvas for makeup preparation. There are several color changing/balancing products out there, but I wanted to get to the root of the problem in diminishing the spots.Through a combination of dermaplane and my Colleen Rothschild skincare, I’m well on my way.

With fall just around the corner, I wanted to share my skincare routine using Colleen Rothschild. I was ecstatic when the brand wanted to work with me, because I believe in the vision of this company. The product line is NOT overwhelming which is a plus. Here’s my fall routine:

{Step 1}: Radiant Cleansing Balm

LOVE LOVE this cleansing balm. I have sensitive skin, so I have to be sure not to exfoliate with harsh products. I use this product to help me get rid of makeup. It works extremely well at getting rid of the most stubborn eye makeup!

{Step 2}: Balancing Gel Cleanser

If I could describe this cleanser in one word, it would be heavenly! The feel of this cleanser is so soft! In my opinion, it’s hard to find a cleanser that cleans deep when it doesn’t contain exfoliating beads. However, I was pleasantly surprised how bright and fresh my skin felt after using this cleanser. I use this twice daily!

{Step 3}: Age Renewal Super Serum **FAVE**

If you only buy one Colleen Rothschild product, it should be THIS ONE! Hands down my favorite product from this line is this serum. It feels like butter and softens skin in just one use. I apply this serum before my moisturizer. My number one skin concern for fall/winter is hydration. This product will boost hydration, and I feel as if it helps the moisturizer work better. I like to think of it as a “moisturizer prep” product ;)

{Step 4}: Sheer Renewal Cream (morning)

I know it can be confusing how to choose a moisturizer in general. Then when you’re trying to decide what to use morning vs. night, it gets even more complicated. Colleen Rothschild has really simplified the process. The sheer renewal cream is my go-to for morning, because it’s not super thick. It gets the moisturizing job done and is sheer enough to wear under makeup.

 OR {Step 4}: Extreme Recovery Cream (night)

If you want to prevent dry skin before winter, grab this extreme recovery cream. It’s a thicker formula, so I apply this each night to a clean face. It’s pretty much like magic while I sleep. I wake up in the morning to fresh skin, but it’s not oily!

Other Masks/Lotions

If you saw my nightstand, you would know that I HAVE to have lotion. I put lotion on my feet and hands before bed every single night. I cannot stand dry feet touching my sheets. So I was excited to grab the nourishing body lotion. I’m somewhat of a lotion snob, because I’m very picky. I want lotion to coat my skin; however, I don’t want it to be greasy! I’m happy to report that this product does just that!

You know I’m a huge football fan, so I thought I’d have a little fun with this clarifying detox mask. I apply it all over my face and let dry for 10 minutes. Trust me, I’ve never met a mask I didn’t like. The clarifying properties in this mask really dug deep into my pores and cleared my blackheads. Use this mask a couple of times per week!

Once weekly, I’ve been using the dual enzyme polish. This gives more exfoliation to your skin to get rid of impurities that have built up during the week. My skin is stressed, so I know that this polish helps to relax and calm my skin. Leave on for 10 minutes then rub in circular motions to get the most out of this product. It’s safe for my sensitive skin which I love!
