Awesome Makeup Wipes.

So lately ive been using the 2$ baby wipes to take off my makeup. I found that they were rough on my skin, and they hardly got everything off, so i opted to go for the slightly more expensive wipes. Although ive heard MACs wipes are good, the price just didnt draw me in.

I chose for the Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes. They are "night calming"

Changing from those babys wipes, to these towelettes has been amazing!
You seriously only need a couple swipes for the eye makeup, and it comes off so easily and without pulling your eye area. Also I get a ton of my foundation off with it, which is amazing.

The scent is great, idk how to explain it, but its...calming. haha.

There are only 25 in the pack, which kinda sucks..i wish there were more. they were about $5 give or take a few bucks.

I found mine at walgreens..but we all know where to find neutrogena...right?

What are you fave makeup wipes?

Cant Live Without #1

I saw a little section on the beauty blog:

-MAC BROW GEL im almost done with this, i have the clear version. i cant decide if i want to buy the brow finisher, or the brow gel again when i run out.
-MISS DIOR CHERIE this was my fave perfume for the longest time. i stopped wearing it for a while, and now im back into it. yay
-PONDS DRY SKIN CREAM- two words. accutane savior.
-URBAN DECAY DESLICK POWDER this didnt do wonders when i had super oily skin, but now i like it to reduce minimal shine
-MAC STUDIO FINISH CONCEALER this is THE BEST concealer ever. nothing competes...nothing.
-WIDE AWAKE ive been reading nonstop. i decided to reread while waiting for the last chapter [52] and im on 39 right now. Ive decided to finish rereading before i go onto 52..but the suspense is killing me.

OK SO THATS IT. i know this is a kinda a lame knockoff of monthly faves..but i need something cool for my blog, and i thought it was a good idea. you like this stuff..right?

Accutane Day 55

Im on 80mg a day.
One pill morning and night.
July 20th

on the bright eyebrows look good.

ok so i have a couple pimples. A LOT A LOT A LOT of that is scarring, which is good, because that means i can cover it up easier. I only have a couple "active/real" pimples by my temple, the one down by my jawline, and a couple on the cheek..that blends in with all the scarring. none on my chin anymore.

ew...bad ones on the forehead..and some on the chin..and some...everywhere haha

Most of the ones on my cheek is actually scarring. The ones by my chin are still there, and near my temple.

I have really noticed the size of my pimples have gone down. Although i still do get blemishes, I find that I dont spend my day worrying about them, and I even went to walgreens without makeup on today. WHICH IS CRAZY. I deff dont feel completely confident with my face yet, [i hoped no one i knew would see me] but i have come to the point where i dont feel like i need to pack on the foundation.

I got my blood drawn today..and I dont mind getting my blood drawn because apparently i have big veins from cross country haha!
i will know tomorrow the results when i go to the derm.

ALSO. I just wanted to let you know that my face is a little worse lately because its...that time of the month haha.
I always break out its all good i guess.


-chapped lips, but they still have not cracked at all!!
-minor back aches..every so ofter.
-drier hair [WHICH I LOVE]..i now dont have to wash it EVERYDAY

i dont really have that bad of dry skin or anything!!
Its actually kinda crazy that i dont have many symptoms because im on a VERY high dosage for my weight and age. I know people who are in their twenties...and they are still on 40mg and they still have bad symptoms.

So everything is smooth. thanks for reading, comment below if you have seen a change.

Accutane Day 39

I know i know, Ive been gone for two weeks, blah blah blah, but ill update you guys about that in a video later.
This is about my accutane.

Accutane Day 39
July 4th
80mg per day

sparatical places on my cheek and jawline

still on chin and less on cheeks

chin, jawline, cheeks

Idk, If you can tell, but in my opinion it looks a lot better. The doctor says the first month is the worse, a lot of the redness in the picture is scarring; so im happy ive gotten past that. Im now breaking out on my jawline a lot and ive never broken out there. There are no HUGE blemishes right now, just little ones.

My dose has doubled to 40mg in the morning and 40mg at night-which comes with double the symptons.

Some symptoms im seeing:

-Sun sensitivity: im not sunburnt at all even after camp..but its really wierd cause sometimes i feel like i am, when i get in the shower i get the feeling that my skin is sunburnt even though its not..its wierd

-Skin sensitivity: sometimes when i scratch my neck it will hurt for a couple minutes, its really wierd

-Back aches: This has kinda gone away but the first week of camp i would be sitting up in my bunk and then when i would lay down to sleep my lower back would get a lot of pain! it would go away in one minute about..but it was really wierd and it hurt

-Im also starting to get acne on my back. I would never get that before accutane, and especially when i doubled my dose, it got worse. I showed my derm and he said that that sometimes happens with the treatment, but it should go away in a couple months...but i hate it lol.

-I have dry patches on my skin and my lips are super dry..but thats the usual.

Ok so thats it, otherwise things are going pretty well.
Thank you all for reading

Hair Dilemma

I need yalls help; tell me in the comments below.

OKAY SO: I really want to grow out my hair because
1] i think long hair looks pretty
2]when its long without layers it doesnt get too curly and its easy to maintain
3] with longer bangs they dont get all crazy if you dont style them

but the problems with continuing to grow out my layers, hair, and bangs are as follows
1]it looks so drab when i dont straighten it..and im lazy
2]it doesnt scrunch hardly..and then it continues to look drab.
3]and its just blehkadjf; boring haha

OKAY SO: I want to get some layers because
1]its something new
2]it might scrunch better
3]and it will look healthier

but the problems with getting layers are as follows
1]the layers will end up being wavy while the rest of my hair is straight
2]the layers dont stay as straight for long
3]ill have to take care of bangs again.

so pick which option you like bettter, or offer something new.

Im probably gonna end up getting long layers or something cause im a wuss and im lazy. help [:

you can link any pictures too!! keep in mind my hair is pretty straight with mild waves naturally

I would have to say a really contoured eyeball [: i dont have much of a crease and im always jealous of people that do.

Do you have a beauty vice?
i dont know what that means?

What part of your body do you love?
I like my eyes or my lips. My eyes are a light grey blue and my bottom lip is wayy fuller than my top lip, but somehow i love it.

Who is your beauty icon?
I honestly dont have one. I dont really look up to anyone when it comes to makeup, but im sure that will change as i grow and find my niche

What beauty product makes you feel instantly sexy?
a peach blush. mmmhmm. or like kelsey said, eyeliner. i love really smoked out eyeliner

How do you look after your skin?
my routine is ALL over the place. I really need to get back into a set one, because im being mean to my skin right now

What is your signature scent?
i used to wear miss dior cherie all the time..but now i dont anymore :/

What are your hair care secrets?
lemons=lighter hair. ive never dyed my hair lol

How do you pamper yourself?
diy facials and scrubs! [:

What is your beauty pet peeve?
when people contour all the way to the lips and dont blend. AHH it kills me.

What would your desert island must haves be?
SUNSCREEN. im fair skinned.

Finally, do you have a beauty philosophy?
not really. just; practice makes perfect. and find something your really good at, and make it your own.

I TAG: EVERYONE. i really wanna see yalls answers, you can either do it in the comments below, or do it in your own blog. let me know if you did it.

still a lot of scarring on the cheek. some of those are scars, some are acne. it all blends in quite nicely...doesnt it? [:

breaking out in all the usual places..but im staring to break out most around my chin. which i NEVER did before.

chin area.. and same cheek area.

Ok, I admit...I suck at updating [: haha.

June 5th.

Im still on 40 mg a day. Idk when he is gonna upgrade me though.

Im still using the ponds, cetaphil, and aquaphor.
My face isnt as oil, and it has some dry spots. Some days my face looks good. others it looks like a mess.

LIPS: my lips are definately getting dry. if i go for over an hour without putting anything on them, its horrible. i lick them like crazy to give them any moisture. so i need to start carrying around my aquaphor. they havent cracked yet though!

My scalp or anything else hasnt gotten dry yet. YAYAYY

Ive gotten a little sunburnt because i went running the other day, and i didnt wear anything on my face. but its pretty much gone now. but my skin is so sensitive to the sun.

I think thats about it.

<3 love you all.

My grandparents are coming in because my sister is graduating from high school this year. My other sister is home from we have a pretty full house. My eldest sister is in the guest room but when my grandparents come..she needs to move out, so im giving her my room. LONG STORY SHORT-- I'm moving into our pool house.

So for the next couple weeks/videos, i will be in a completely different environment [ironically same colored walls] but yea.
It has great lighting cause of all the windows..

except its kinda creepy at night. But oh well, i kinda like it. Its like living on my own. I though I'd update yall.

Accutane Day 1

May 27th.

Ok, So I was gonna start an accutane diary in my videos- but then I realized I had too many other videos I needed to get Im starting one up here...fair enough?

Ill just be posting what day im on, the side effects, how I feel, and how my acne is. I know that this is a 5 month long treatment; so I wont be seeing changes right away. I hope to educate you guys a lot about accutane, and if you have any questions, leave them below.

I normaly HATE pictures without my makeup..but I want to show where I started. I've had worse weeks than this, and I've had better...this is kinda in the middle.

This is mostly scarring on my cheek, but there are a couple breakouts there too. My main problem is on my cheeks.

I have a couple ones on my forehead that your cant see that well, and one or two on my chin.

This side of my face just recovered from a breakout. There were like 4 or 5 in a line across my face..BLEHH.

Right now im on 40mg per day. Hahahhahah I need to show you the packaging, because if you get pregnant while on accutane your child will have birth defects, so on every single capsule there is a picture of a pregnant lady with a line slashing her out. sheesh.

Right now I have oily skin, and I almost never get dry skin on my body. I occasionally get dry skin on my face.
Im using ponds lotion for dry skin for my face. And cetaphil for my body. Im also using Aquaphor for my lips. NOO CHAPPED LIPS WHILE ON ACCUTANE [like thats gonna happen]

Well i hope you enjoyed this little[long] post. Any questions, or you want to share your own experience..please comment below. I love hearing from you.
