Skincare with MD Complete Skincare

DSC08009-1

Hi Loves! Let’s talk skincare! I really have lost count of how many bloggers, & social influencers I stalk, I mean follow, on Instagram just to take notes of what products work for them. Skincare is something that I take serious, especially since there’s no time clock to stop from aging, just to think that all I would do was throw water on my face and call it a day……but now my skincare routine is just as long as my makeup routine + getting dressed combined. Skincare 101 skincare routines consists of a cleanser, moisturizer, serum, skin balm, toner, night time facial mask, your first born, nondisclosure agreement….just kidding, but routines consist of half of these steps to get the job done. Today I want to share a 3 step skin system that has been super beneficial to my skin routine.

I heard about Md Skincare Complete skincare by Brian Zelickson, about maybe a year ago, through social media, and most recently got the opportunity to try some of their acne fighting products. When it comes to acne fighting products, with so many skincare brands, it starts to feel like if you’ve tried one, you’ve tried’em all. The overwhelming feeling I get when I’m going back and forth between products, comparing ingredients (& prices) this is time consuming, and wind up going over the budget. I have 100% combination skin plus active psoriasis, shopping for 1 skin issue is hard enough, having to find products for oily/dry skin, plus constant sensitive skin, can be draining. I have found something that works for my skin, and not stop after only a few uses ( know what I mean Okkur)!

The Md complete skincare acne fighting system, comes with a cleanser, moisturizer, and facial serum, all infused with Vitamin C + E, Retinol & BPO ( natural ingredients to fight against acne). For any starting routine, washing your face is important, If it’s one thing I make sure I do every day is wash my face. The Clarifying Cleanser is the starting step to clear skin. The clarifying cleanser is a light a cleanser infused with Salicylic Acid and natural botanicals that cleanses oil/dirt out of my pores. COME THRUUU skincare goals, I have been using this cleanser for a while now, and all my skin probs have been answered. The cleanser is super potent, the application is really consistent, it is not as sudsy as other gel cleansers, it performs as a natural gel. After the wash, my skin feels free of oils and a days worth of makeup ( you guys know the process).

After cleansing the skin, I use the MD Complete breakout treatment, which is a light moisturizer, that prevents breakouts & hydrates the skin. The breakout treatment helps to restore + replenish the skin for a smoother, healthier, complexion. 

The last step in the acne clearing system is the Vitamin C healthy complexion serum. This retinol infused serum, helps to tone, tighten, and yes…. clear dark scaring. This serum is to be used both night and day ( after washing your face, of course) packed with all Vitamins A, B, C, + E to help prevent future acne, tighten pores, as well as giving the appearance of matte skin. The consistency of the serum does have a sticky texture, but that’s the active ingredient of Vitamin C.

Oh! after the final step, there is a final, final step, which includes a probiotic supplement drink. MD skincare healthy skin probiotic, is a supplement infused with niacin ( fancy word for Vitamin B) that is a internal supplement that targets stress levels….I mean, what? As you know stress, plays a big part in acne, and this probiotic ( may I add it taste like berries) restores the balance of your nutrition; & supports complexion. My skin consumes this product line so much; I already can tell the difference in my skin, and overall health completely. After the time of using all the products, my skin feels lighter; and the acne scarring is slowly, but surely disappearing.

Becca |#BECCAbrighteyes

Hi Lovelies,

So if you’ve taken college classes, morning, noon, or night; you know the feeling, of not being energized and having to survive on that early cup of starbucks, but Becca cosmetics has provided a 3 step eye trick that will give us that trying-not- trying bright eye look.

becca.1

Influenster sent out a bunch of Becca bright eye boxes, for us beauty bloggers and enthusiasts to try and I was super excited. Of course, a new product hits the shelf, the first thing I do, do my research on youtube. 

After ransacking the internet, here’s what I found out.

Becca.6

#BECCAbrighteyes comes with 3 products;

Becca Anti Fatigue eye primer

This under eye primer is meant for not only smooth application, but helps fight fatigue, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The first step, prep and prime the skin before concealer. The product is infused with Antioxidant, and green tea, which leaves the skin with a natural glow, and smooth feeling. This product retails for $32, and comes in a hand held compact. 

The anti fatigue primer, feels so smooth to the touch, I feel that the price is a little pricey, for the size, but the product itself is worth it. 

Becca.8Becca.3

Becca Bright eye Corrector

The corrector is concealer that neutralizes dark under eye circles. This retails for $32. 

The bright eye corrector is the 2nd step to achieving #BECCAbrighteye look. This concealer is creamy, and laid over the primer achieves a natural look, without creasing into your “designer bags” I really think the concealer works well, but I’m sure you can find any concealer that will work well.

BECCA bright eyes Setting Powder

Setting the face is the final step…almost there! After priming and concealing, time to set the eyes, to be sure your eyes do not crease throughout the day. The setting powder is very fine, which doesn’t cause chunky product to ruin the look. The setting powder is enriched with Raspberry stem cells, and Australian berries, that will give you that healthy boost of energy in the skin. The setting powder retails for $25.  

After using all 3 products I think the products work really well together, the price you’ll be paying for the entire kit is $89, Wheww, thank goodness for free samples. But I think you can find similar products for much cheaper, I recommend all products, but I think the star product is the primer.

I hope you enjoyed this post, if you like reviews/posts be sure to “LIKE” and “COMMENT” Also have you tried the #BECCAbrighteye 3 step kit, if so let me know.

These complimentary samples were provided by Influenster for review, all opinions were my own.

Kenra Professional New Launches

K3

When it comes to my hair, I will go out on a limb to make sure it looks perfect. With so many damages of heat from straightening, curling, and the sun itself, trying to reverse the “heat curse” is a must, and the new Kenra professionals collection does just that.

Kenra Professional’s release of their Snail anti aging collection, is a 5 piece collection that is made to reverse dry; limp hair, and turn back time, you know that time, when your hair was full, youthful, and easy to manage, this collection may become your holy grail, I can definitely say the products are completely worth it.

I’m here to give the scoop to all my beauties!

KENRA SNAIL COLLECTION

The Kenra Platinum Snail collection is an anti aging made to reverse time, on damaged hair, and give its youth back. I know that snail extract is great for the skin, but for your hair? The 3 piece shampoo, conditioner, & cc creme  is made to fight the 10 signs of aging: Dullness, Thinning, Dryness, Frizz, Breakage, Elasticity, Porosity, Scalp Irritation, unmanageability, and Coarse Texture, WHEWW!! that’s a lot. These products are cruelty free.

The Kenra Snail anti aging shampoo, conditioner, and the Snail CC creme, are a trio combined to give your hair the best boost of youth. My hair is very thick and absorbs oils in a blink, and yet my hair still gets limp and heavy with the slightest of cremes. Washing my hair with the shampoo and conditioner, really gets it back to it’s natural state, of being youthful. I have been trying to create a curl pattern, with all the damage, this trio was able to get rid of my brittle hair, and its now able to grow in health. Using the snail extracted CC creme, it gives my hair light moisture, without weighing it down, also NO FRIZZ!

KENRA PLATINUM HEAT BLOCK SPRAY 22

If you were to walk in my bathroom, you would see hella heat protectant sprays, from drugstore to the most luxurious, the problem is, with all the spending you would expect me to have one I can gravitate to, but its always a battle of which will work with the weather today. The Kenra Heat block spray is Enriched with Bee Propolis for unparalleled heat protection, this gives the hair protection against heat up to 450 degrees. I love having straight hair, its more manageable, and is a quick fix when I’m just waking up. I use this spray right before I press my hair, but before I press my hair, I allow the spray to absorb in my hair, and massage it for even distribution.

KENRA SHAPING SPRAY

I never like using shaping sprays, because I knew most of them contained alcohol, which is very harmful to the hair, and can give it that sticky; stiff feeling, you know what I’m talking bout’. When I saw that this professional spray was Alcohol Free, I was overjoyed, I still had my doubts though. The shaping spray allows hold and protection, without hardening and loosing that volume and texture.
