Arm & Hammer Foot Care Moisturizer + Gentle Exfoliators

Before you know it summer sandal season will be here. With all the walking I do in NYC I sometimes need a little help keeping my footsies soft and crack free. I tried this Arm & Hammer Foot Care Moisturizer + Gentle Exfoliators and my feet have never looked better.

Arm & Hammer Foot Care has designed a first to market, patent pending, fast acting formula to not only moisturize your skin, but to restore it as well. A combination of gentle AHA Exfoliators and deeply hydrating coconut oil work wonders. It’s so easy to use and fast acting…also it smells great!

You can pick up this product in the foot care aisle of your local CVS and CVS.com (retails for $8.79).

Hard Candy Be Bold Glitter Mascara

Hard Candy sent over some of their new Be Bold mascara line for me to try out. Their new bold colored and glitter mascaras come in 10 great shades. Here I'm trying out their two glitter top coats in Shooting Star and Disco Ball.

Samples were provided, but this review is my own personal opinion on the products.

Shown above I'm wearing Shooting Star. I thought it would be best to use this hue in a daytime look. The sparkles were very subtle...but had a slight sparkle in the right light. Glitter in daytime perfection!

Here I am showing you how I wear Disco Ball in an evening look. This was much more glittery so I thought it would be fun to pair it with a dark eye and bare lip.

What I loved most about these glitter top coats is that they didn't clump, added a little sparkle without being overwhelming, and are only $5 a pop! You can't go wrong. Also, for those of you that freak out about glitter getting everywhere, this was actually super easy to remove. With a slight swipe of a makeup remover wipe it came right off with little effort.

Be sure to look for these fun mascaras at your local Walmart in Spring of 2018.

Fox in a Box by Hard Candy

One thing I always have in my makeup drawer is a good bronzer. A hint of golden color on my cheeks adds so much to my every day look. Also, when you are as pale as I am a touch of color goes a long way!

My friends at Hard Candy sent over some of their new scented marbleized baked powders called Fox in a Box (available at Walmart, $7) for me to try. I honestly don't know which one I love most. They give a great golden color and smell amazing!

This formula delivers multi dimensional yet sheer and buildable color. This gives you a natural and healthy glow. Also, with scents like chocolate, peach, and pina colada you'll have a hard time picking your favorite!

Do you love bronzers as much as I do? Be sure to give these a try!

Color Correct from Hard Candy

I'm so excited to share Hard Candy's new Color Correct line with my readers. Recently my friends at Hard Candy sent over a few of these products and I can't get enough!

This limited edition collection of color correcting primers and concealers helps get ride of acne spots, dark spots, and dry skin. What's so great about this line is that it has a Color Correct Expert Stick, Radiant Primer, and Expert Creme Wand for every skin tone (they all come in six different shades).

I have to say, the primer is fantastic. The yellow tinted primer helps neutralize redness in your skin...and it really, really works.The best part is they are only $5 each!

Don't forget that this line is a limited edition...so get it while you can. Hard Candy is available at Walmart.

Favorite Skincare Products

Over the last month or two my skincare routine has taken priority in my life. I was recently on some medication that made my skin breakout like crazy...and the normal face wash just wasn't cutting it. Also, I'm getting old. Go ahead, roll your eyes. But on March 20th I'll be 36 (ahhh!!!)...so if I don't start treating my skin with extra care I know I'll just be paying for it later on in life. And who wants to look like they are 60 when they are 40? Not me!

Here are my current favorite skincare items in my medicine cabinet.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer in Pink Grapefruit- I love this stuff. I think moisturizer is definitely needed in my beauty routine, but sometimes it can just be a little too greasy. And greasy is the last thing you want when your skin is breaking out. I use this moisturizer in the morning before I put my makeup on and also before I go to bed. Added bonus: it smells so yummy!

Foreo LUNA mini 2 Fuchsia + Day & Night Cleansers- I have never been so happy to purchase a beauty product. I'll be honest, this wasn't exactly cheap. But I had two Sephora gift cards and a Visa gift card so I thought, what the heck! What is so great about this cleansing brush? Not only is it great for every skin type, but it also combines 8,000 T-sonic pulsations per minute. Also, it stays charged for five months at a time and the rubber bristles never need to be replaced (unlike other cleansing brushes where you need to replace the brush heads). I use this every morning and every night and the difference it is making in my skin is remarkable.

Masksheets from Besfren Beauty- I have recently discovered Korean beauty products. Luckily I work super close to Koreatown in Manhattan and I can wander through the amazing little shops in that neighborhood during my lunch break. My all time favorite shop has to be Besfren Beauty. Not only is the shop adorable (if you are in NYC stop on by it's on 32nd Street between Fifth and Madison...closer to Fifth), the people that work there are so very helpful. For someone that doesn't speak/read Korean these beauty products can be kind of intimidating. They also have amazing deals! Every time I have gone I have gotten some serious discounts. If you aren't in NYC, no worries...they have a website you can shop on too! Just click the link above. I use a mask twice a week on my face. I actually ran out of masks for about a week or so and I could seriously feel the difference (and dryness!) in my skin. These products actually make my skin feel years younger.
