Okay, I’m going to preface this post with an amusing little tale from this weekend. So, Friday night I was doing a little (or a lot of) celebrating my being dunz-o with test week, and decided to go out with my girlfriends. Due to all of this excitement, at some point in the night, my friend and I took off in a full sprint towards our bar of choice…… and then took a pretty nasty tumble in front of like 4903544835 people. Seriously ate shit like a bunch of idiots.
Anyways, things were all well and good until we got up (initially laughing at our klutz-o status) and realized that my eyebrow was profusely bleeding. Turns out, the fall re-opened a previous, accidental cheerleading injury.
So there I was trying to have a nice time with my bloody eyebrow and scratched up face. The point of this? Well, the next day, I used my Paula Dorf eyebrow filler and, seriously, you couldn’t even tell I had eaten shit onto my face. I’m serious… never been more thankful for a beauty product in my life. Covered all of that lovely crusted blood! Omg, sick. I know.
So, anyways: back to my Eminence obsession. Hi, I’m Payton and I’m addicted to Eminence Organics. I did a post about this amazing brand way back when, but I have some additions to the collection that I am DYING to show y’all. I’ll save you guys my spiel about organic skincare products, because I covered that in my last post on this subject. but just know: its the way to freaking go. The only way to go.
Also, I invested in a Clarisonic and I need need need to share how amazing this little tool is. I’m not sponsored by Eminence or Clarisonic, so ya know the love is the real kind. I know I’m a little late in the Clarisonic game, and some of y’all are like ‘k duh it rocks,’ but I got here eventually, right? I use the Mia 2 every night (with a delicate/sensitive skin brush thing, because my skin is some kinda-out-of-this-world sensitive) to deep-clean my pores and polish my skin. Its a charmer and a must-have for a dreamy, dewy complexion.
Some of my favorite Eminence Products are detailed in this post… buuuut I’m here to talk about some new faves. I’ve added some products to my all-star lineup and all of you need to go grab them online right now. It’s important.
Okay my favorite ‘favorite’ is this Blueberry Soy Night Recovery Cream. First and foremost, this stuff smells absolutely incredible. I seriously cannot get enough of it. If I could jump into a pool filled with this stuff & live in it… I would. Weird?
Once you get your nose out of this wonder-cream, you realize how freakin’ moisturizing it is. Okay, that should be obvious for a moisturizer, but this stuff takes it to the next level. Its penetrating and softening without being all gross and oily. I HATE heavy creams… I always feel like my pores are being suffocated. No thanks.
Also, I’ve started using this Citrus + Kale Masque. I’m not big on the way this one smells, but I am big on what it does for my skin. This stuff is superfood for your face, so in conjunction with the Eight Greens Serum.. its dynamite. The Eminence Website describes this masque calling it “A cocktail of citrus, rhubarb extract, leafy greens and avocado oil forms helps reduce the appearance of sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles.”
Another little skincare tip (that I recently covered here) is using Vitamin E Oil as makeup remover! I absolutely luuuurve finding a natural, cheaper replacement for those annoying-ass makeup remover pads/ oils. S’gross. Thought this leetle tippidy-tip would be a great addition to my organic/natural skincare routine post. Read more about how bomb vitamin E oil is for you skin here.
and sidenote: does anyone else absolutely love when all your makeup/beauty products match and are perfectly accumulated on your counter like a magazine ad? Am I a crazed maniac, oorrrrr?
