This post is overdue - that computer problem really threw a wrench in my blog schedule.

But if you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed a few weeks ago when I was posting about my #firstfreshkiss and the Fresh Blue Box visiting Boston. Now, I had used a few Fresh products before. I had one of the Sugar Lip colors and have used a bottle of the Rose Toner for a long time now. But since visiting the Blue Box, testing out more Sugar Lip treatments, and learning more about the company, I have completely fallen in love with the brand. I've had the opportunity to try a whole bunch of Fresh products, and so far so good with all of them. But by far, my favorites are the scrubs - the Brown Sugar Body Polish (Boo loves this one, too), the Sugar Face Polish, and the Sugar Lip Scrub. The feel so good, smell so good, and the lip polish even tastes so good. Mmmmm so yummy. 

Have you ever used any Fresh products? I also have the Soy face cleanser and the Lotus face and eye creams, but I'd love to know more about the others available!

A Beauty Product Post

I thought I would do something different today, and give you a look at some of my favorite beauty products that I use. I’m still playing around with a few different products, but for now- this is my routine. 

As far as skin care, I keep it pretty simple (I think, at least). I’ve been using Burt’s Bees for awhile, and absolutely love it. 


Clean & Clear Morning Burst I start out with this face wash. It feels good and really does wake me up in the morning.

Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Toner - I especially love this in the summer. It cools me down. 

Burt’s Bees Radiance Day Lotion - my face can get pretty dry, and I’ve never had a problem with this lotion feeling too heavy, or anything. Works perfect. 


I start by removing any makeup with basic makeup remover pads (not pictured).

Burt’s Bees Radiance Night Creme - I’m not really sure if this does anything, but I like to think it does. 

Burt’s Bees Radiance Eye Creme  

I don’t really wear much makeup. Most days its just mascara, a little lip color, and a bit of cover up (if necessary). If I feel like it, I might do a little eye liner and color on my cheeks too. 

Stila Cover Up Stick

Stila All Over Shimmer Duo - I like this because its 2 colors and I can use it on my cheeks or eyes. 

Stila Eyeshadow - I used black eye shadow as eyeliner. I like a smudgier look. 

Diorshow Mascara - I. Love. This stuff. Seriously, best mascara I’ve ever tried. I’ve used it for a couple years now, and I doub;t I’ll ever use anything different. 

Smashbox Emulsion Lip Exfoliant - I have a dry lips issue. I feel like this stuff actually helps, and its minty!

Smashbox Lip Treatment - I’ve replaced my chapstick with this and I love it. Although I still use my Burt’s Bees chapstick sometimes. 

Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick - I’m kinda new to lipstick (because of my dry, flaky lips), but so far I like this. The one pictured is Delightful (sheer berry). But I just got Legendary (true red) the other day and it both excites and scares me at the same time. 


other items pictured:

The All Nighter Brown Hair Powder - I don’t shower everyday, and I use this powder to make my hair look a lot less greasy than it actually is. 

Nina Ricci ‘Nina’ Perfume - So pretty. Both fruity and floral. 

Tom’s deodorant - Confession- I bought this deodorant solely based on the fact the Linda uses it. True story. I was using Dove deodorant, but I was out. And when I went to the store for a new one, and was standing in front of all of them, I spotted Tom’s and recognized it from Linda posting it in her own beauty routine post. So I bought it. So thank you Linda, for influencing both my style, and the smell of my armpits.
