Best of the Best @KaiFragrance

My favorite body care right meow.

Obsessed with the scent and moisturizing effect.

I’m such a dweeb in the sense that I do not want to use the travel size because I treasure it too much. #LOSERAMI

Travel Kit @KaiFragrance @HotToolsPro

Been traveling for work and I have my usual suspects with me…

I always do a face mask since I’m in my hotel room alone and watching a show.

Nightly #facemask

I got a new mask from Amazon (link below) and decided to try it during my night in Palm Springs. I’m not sure what the exact benefits are, however it made my skin look amazing after and even this am.

I wasn’t sure when I should remove it but I did follow the directions and trashed it after 15-20 minutes. This mask stays wet due to the material so there’s not drying out.

My face has been super dry and rash-y lately, super bothersome… needed to try other things.

Swipe @MuradSkincare

Every time I visit Catalina, she gives me some kind of skincare. This time around, she gave me a wipe for my face. It was nice, refreshing but it smelled like alcohol.

I’m not sure exactly what it does, but I like to try things out to see if I really like something or not. I’m not familiar with skincare so I’ll take anything!

Rapid Resurfacing Peel

Thx @Catalinalinasu @MuradSkinCare

I don’t do face care but lately I’ve been forced to… 😛

Okay, not forced but wanting to. Catalina gifted me with this amazing serum for my eyes and I cannot get enough of it. She suggested I put it on morning and night.

So I do what she says…

Pumps Are My Thing

I enjoy things that are easy to apply. I like all skin care products that are in pump-able bottles. My shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, etc.

I have been using these below (but recently CS gave me something that wasn’t a pump).

Face Care – Thank you @CatalinalinaSu

Thank you Catalina for this product!

For those of you who know me, I don’t care for my skin care regimen.

I don’t usually wash my face at night. I don’t wear moisturizer. I don’t wear SPF. 

Well, I have been more lately but until about few months ago, I didn’t.

I have been using this now for two days… TWO DAYS ONLY and my skin feels fucking amazing!

#Henna

I’ve gotten henna twice before and I loved it. The only bad thing is that it doesn’t come off all at the same time. Towards the end of the week, it can start to look a little dirty. I was leaving for NY on Wednesday so I thought it would be a good idea to get it the Sunday before. No client meetings at the office and I’d be gone half the week. People assume that henna is black, but only when it is applied. Once it dries and peels off, it becomes burgundy. I wished it stayed as dark as it does in my photo.

I’ve tried two different places. Each place is different and offer contrasting quality. My go to place is in Artesia. They have the best quality I’ve experienced so far (yes, I’ve only been to one other). It’s darker, dries quicker, I can take it off quicker… etc.

#Botox @IloveKoreatown

I am always the last one out of my friends to do something. I held off for so long because I was scare of the pain. My first visit was to a friend’s doctor who would do it at his home. He was gentle, cautious and caring. I’ve gotten botox from him twice so that was all I had know.

My third visit was to a place in Koreatown. I thought I was going in for a consult when they convinced me to get right then and there. The have deals on Wednesdays and Thursdays for $6.50/unit. It was a Saturday and they honored it. Viora MedSpa.

The doctor ordered 30 units for my forehead and crow’s feet, 40 units for my jaws and fillers for my lips. I only got 20 for my forehead since I’ve never done crow’s feet before AND I was too scared for my jaw. 40 units???? That’s another $260!! I was good!

I was appreciative of them for honoring the great deal for me! Although I missed Dr. Steve’s bedside manner, I couldn’t wait to see him at his home. Viora was aggressive and didn’t care about my pain. They numbed my forehead with an ice pack but when it got too cold, I wanted to take a break but they didn’t allow me. And when I wanted to ice it again between shots, they didn’t allow me. They didn’t even mark my face, not that I wanted to be marked up but what if they missed a spot? I just wanted used to Viora’s procedure. :/

Will I go back? Probably. 😛


Favorite Ever @OlayUS

I’m not a HUGE beauty person but I do like things that aren’t overpriced and of quality. I wasn’t sure what to expect when my package came from Amazon, but after almost a week of use, I’m realizing that this product is freaking amazing.

It doesn’t leave my face feeling oily or dry. It’s almost nonexistent as soon as it’s applied while still staying moisturized. I’m not sure how long this bottle will last me, but I did see that they have other versions, like one with SPF and SPF with tint. I may try the one with SPF next time.
