Haircare Routine for Dry Hair

Hello my lovlies! Im back with another beauty blog. After doing my dry and oily skin blog, i realized that along with suffering with both dry and oily skin, i also suffered both dry and oily hair. I know that many people on this beautiful planet also suffer this problem, so i thought i would share a few things i did to get rid of my dry hair!!

Hair Masks:

One thing i did to help get rid of my dry hair was to start using hair mask. I would recommend making your own opposed to buying pre-made ones from the store. This way you know exactly what is going onto your hair. I mostly used an avacado mask twice a month on my hair.

Do not over wash!:

Try not to wash your hair too much, shampoo can and does often times dry out your hair when you over wash it. I take showers daily, but i only wash my hair every other two days. Also make sure that the shampoo you’re using wont dry out your hair. Some shampoos have acids and what not in them that are a death sentence for your hair.

Use olive oil as conditioner:

Once again, you never know what youre putting on your hair when using store shampoo’s and conditioners. When i had dry hair i used A VERY LITTLE amonut of olive oil as conditioner. If you use to much your hair will look greasy, and we dont want that either. Using olive oil on your hair will also help keep your tips nice and healthy.

Dry your hair naturally or wrap it dry:

Lastly using blow dryers and shaking your hair dry can badly damage and dry out your hair. I always always always air dry my hair when i get out of the shower and i find hat this helps SO much!

I know this is a short blog, but these are the steps i took to fix my dry hair.

September Beauty Favorites!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I want to share with you my favorites from September! Lets get into it:

Makeup:

Babo Lip Tint SPF 15 Conditioner –

This lip balm has a little bit of pink tint and it has been perfect for everyday. I can quickly apply it before class and look put together, plus it is really moisturizing! It lasts a while on the lips and makes them look so healthy.

Morphe 12 NB palette – 

This has been my go to eyeshadow palette lately! The warm toned looks are beautiful for this end of summer-autumn phase. These shadows blend easily, and they don’t crease on me (even without a primer) for hours!

Tarte Gifted Mascara + NYX Worth The Hype Mascara –

I have really enjoyed layering these two mascaras! The combo gives me beautiful, long and volumized  lashes with definition. I love to put down the NYX one first as a lengthening base, and then go in with the Tarte for volume. I also love to put the Tarte mascara on my lower lashes, it makes them look lovely!

Skincare:

Derma-E Hydrating Night Cream – 

This has been a lifesaver for me the past couple of weeks. My skin had an absolute freak out because of my move to Cali for college. It went oily and then incredibly dry. This cream is super hydrating but it is fairly lightweight and has worked well through both skin types. Highly recommend this if you need a new night cream!

Acure Seriously Glowing Facial Serum –

This serum was much too heavy for my skin back home, but now it works amazingly for me. This is the only thing that has been able to help balance out my dry skin. It is amazingly hydrating, thick and heavy. I absolutely love it because it makes my skin glow by the morning.

Sonage Remedy Relief Balancing Mask – 

I love the way this makes my skin feel after, it really zaps clogged pores and it helped balance out my oily skin. Even now that my skin has turned dry it still makes my face feel nice. It is an incredibly rejuvenating mask!

That’s it for my September favorites! I hope you guys enjoyed, let me know what you’ve been loving down in the comments below, I would love to know!

Tips for Oily Skin

Hello my lovlies! Today i will be doing another beauty blog…DUH! It would be weird if i wasnt, after all our blog name is BEAUTYholics.

After writing me Acne skincare routine blog, i began to realize that when i comes to your skin, people suffer many problems. Some people get really bad acne, others get really bad dry skin, and then others get really bad oily skin. So i thought, since throughout my short life, i have suffered both oily and dry skin, i would do a blog on what i did to get rid/help my oily skin. Hopefully this will help those of you out there suffering oily skin.

  1. Get a face wash that it suited toward oily skin, and wash you face twice a day.

    I started noticing that i was getting oily skin shortly after i started my first period in the 6th grade. I was terrified by how oily my skin looked, and how no matter what i did, i couldn’t seem to make it go away. That was until i started using Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser. I highly recommend this, and if you have sensitive skin like i do this is still a good cleanser so dont be afraid! I would wash my face once in the morning, make sure that you PAT your face dry, instead of rubbing it. Then i would wash my face for the second time before bed.

  2. Wash your bed sheets and pillows once a week.

    Along with washing your face twice a day, i also would wash my pillows and bedding once a week. I personally believe that doing this really helped my acne and my oily skin

  3. Start an oil free diet.

    I know its hard to pass up a french fry here and there, but exchanging that french fry for some veggies, and that burger for more lean meat will really improve your oily skin. When i cut back on the more processed food, i could see a noticable change in the oily-ness of my skin within a week. Cutting back on surgary drinks will also help reduce skin oil.

  4. Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate!

    Exfoliating your skin twice a week will reduce oily skin like you wouldnt believe. By exfoliating your skin, youre stripping yourself of dead skin cells, which helps reduce skin oils. Just be careful not to over exfoliate, that will only make the oily-ness wose.

  5. Exercise daily

    By exercising daily you are increasing your blood flow which opens up your clogged pores as well as nourishes your skin.

  6. WATER WATER WATER.

Drink lots and lots of water. Water is such an amazing thing and will help you so so so so much. I cannot stress how important water is. I would reccomned drinking 5-6 glasses of water a day.

Thats it for todays blog. Comment down below how you got rid of your oily skin, or if you plan on doing this to get rid of oily skin!

Beauty Empties: July-August

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! I managed to finish a lot of beauty products these last two months since I was attempting to get rid of some of my products before I moved into college dorms. I just moved in a week ago and I’m having fun at college, although I am sad to be away from Christine!

Let’s get into the empties:

Makeup:

NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake – This is my favorite lip gloss of all time and I love it! I finished it off and I have already repurchased.

Moon Valley Organics Beeswax Lip Balm – This lipbalm I found at the health food store and it was okay but it was super oily which I was not a fan of. I wouldn’t repurchase this.

Butter London Wink Matte Liquid Eyeliner in Brown Sugar – This eyeliner was really nice! I would definitely repurchase it in the black shade, I don’t usually wear brown liner.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner – I really enjoyed this eyeliner. This is something I definitely would repurchase. It is super black and really does stay on all day!

Skincare:

Terremere Tea and Aloe Hydrating Cleanser – I really enjoyed this cream cleanser. It really took off my makeup nicely and it left my face feeling fresh. It is super expensive if I can’t find it on Hautelook, so I wouldn’t repurchase.

Mychelle Pure Harmony cleanser – This cream cleanser was also really nice. This was really gentle on my skin and I did enjoy it, but I feel like I could find something better for cheaper, so I wouldn’t repurchase!

Evan Healy Lavender Facial Tonic Hydrosoul – This was a toner sort of product and I did like what it did for my skin, just it was very heavily scented and it really began to bother me, so I would not buy the full size of this.

Ean Healy Pomegranate Repair Serum – This serum was really thick and moisturizing, but this one happened to give me some clogged pores, and it didn’t make my skin glow the way it does with other serums.  I wouldn’t buy the full size.

Beautycounter Nourishing Night Cream – This was so lovely and hydrating! These beauty counter products were gifted to us by an instagram friend (@betterbeauty101). I really enjoyed this night cream and I would buy a full size!

Beautycounter Nourishing Eye Cream – This was a nice eye cream, it felt good on the skin and I really enjoyed using this sample, but I’ve just bought the Derma-e one and I want to use that up before I buy a full size of this, so maybe I’d repurchase in the future!

Haircare:

I know I never use up haircare anything but I finally put my mind to it and I have four empties!

NH hotels Soft Mask – I definitely stole this from the hotel I was at in Spain but I loved this hair mask and I wish there was somehow I could buy it again because it made my hair so soft!

Aveda Invati Advanced Exfoliating Shampoo – This was a really good shampoo for getting all the buildup out of my roots. I really enjoyed it and it didn’t make my hair frizzy so I would definitely buy the full size!

Aveda Invati Advanced Thickening Conditioner – This conditioner was very volumizing but it wasn’t moisturizing enough for my hair personally so I would not repurchase it, but I would recommend it if you are looking for volume!

Paul Mitchell The Detangler Conditioner – This conditioner was a very watery consistency and it was really hydrating and lovely but I still prefer my Mop conditioner so I would not buy this one!

Bodycare:

Sparituals Passionfruit Agave Vegan Nourishing Sugar Scrub – This was a gift, I loved it and I really enjoyed it and I was going to repurchase it until I saw the price tag. $50 is not something I can afford at all as a college student!

That is it for my empties! I hope you guys enjoyed this post. It is ridiculously long! Let me know something you’ve finished down below in the comments!

Acne skin care routine

Hello my lovelies!! I’m back and here with the much awaited skincare routine. And let me just tell you, you’re in for some laughs!

So over this past year I have been getting really bad acne. I used to be those lucky girls that never had to worry about acne, so I thought that it would never happen to me..yet it did and I HATED it. I think the main reason for the acne was because my hormones were all over the place.

My acne needed action and FAST. I tried all the Pinterest all natural things, and nothing worked. So I turned to my good ol Target. And let’s just say I am pleased with my results!

Neutrogena all-in-1 acne control daily scrub:

Now you may be asking, “Christine what is the laugh you’re talking about? Skin care is a serious business!” And girl trust me I know! Let’s just say…Christine didn’t read the back of this and temporarily made her problem worse. On the back it says..in bold all caps… DO NOT PARTNER WITH OTHER ACNE SCRUBS, COULD CAUSE IRRITATION. And you would never believe what I was doing…partnering them together. I was using both this and the Clearasil together, they were technically the same thing so my logic was it would make it work even faster…well it didn’t and it irritated my skin causing red bumps to show up around my cheeks. Thankfully I realized my mistake and stopped using the Neutrogena. I am not using this because it is bad, but simply because I’m using the clearasil first and cannot use this at this time. Once I finish the clearsil I will begin to use Neutrogena!

Clearasil rapid rescue deep treatment wash:

This is what I’ve been using twice a day. Once in the morning tight when I wake up, and then at night before bed. And let me tell you, after the previous story above. This really helped. Once I started ONLY using this, the red spots from combining the two products, plus any existing acne went away within a day. I really like how this also treats scars. The scars don’t go away as quickly as those non scarred acne, but within a day you can clearly see it start to lighten up. And when I use it in the morning I feel so refreshed and awake i really do enjoy this product. I will warn, with all these products your skin does dry out a lot.

10% Benzoyl Peroxide gel:

I heard of this gel via instagram, and I was eager to see if it would aid my acne and zits. I usually use this right after the Clearasil wash, and I think it really does aid in the treatment. I also apply this twice a day. The only thing I dislike about this is that it dries out your skin even more than the acne wash. But I knew that going into this product. It really helps with the acne though.

I would like to also add that I use the Pixi Tonic Glow serum once a week as well. I forgot to take a picture of it, but I also use that and it helps a lot. Stings a little but it works!

Beauty Counter Products Review

Hello my lovelies! It’s been awhile I know! I’ve been going through some stuff and have been super busy with work lately that I haven’t been able to blog much! Alas I am back and ready to RUMBLE!!!

So a few months ago Hailey and I found this Instagramer ( shout out to @betterbeauty101 follow her on insta!) who was giving out free Beauty Counter Face serums. Wanting to try this out we hopped on board! The sample size came with four serums. Rejuvenating face cleanser, Rejuvenating radiance Serum, Rejuvenating day cream, and Rejuvenating night cream. As you could probably tell by their names, the purpose for these serums is to Rejuvenate your skin. And you best believe with all the stress this girls been going through, she needs herself some rejuvenation!

Rejuvenating face cleanser:

I used this cleanser after I washed my face for the night. What I really like about this cleanser is it makes me feel so refreshed afterwards. Doing this after washing my face with my witch-hazel feels so Gucci! Since I do this at night, its refreshing-ness really helps put me in the going to bed mood. I also really like how you can really feel it cleansing out your face.

Rejuvenating Radiance Serum:

NYX Butter Gloss in angel food cake – This has been my favorite to throw on for everyday. It is a beautiful pink color that makes my lips juicy and pretty. You guys already know how much I love these glosses!

Tarte Park Avenue Princess Bronzer – This bronzer lasts ages on the skin, isn’t too dark for me, I just love it. I won’t bore you guys because I recently did a review and talked all about this!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I’m going to share all the products I finished in the last couple months. Lets get into it:

Makeup:


w3ll people expressionist mascara – This is one of my favorite mascaras, it is very black and gives you long defined lashes that are very fluttery and natural. Definitely need to repurchase!

Smashbox Brow Tech to go in Taupe – I really enjoyed this, but after finishing two full sizes I’m just over it, and I’m going to try something else!

Physicians formula Eye booster eyeliner – This has a very thin and watery formula. I prefer my other eyeliner pens so would not repurchase!

Skincare:


Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum – I’ve been loving this for my skin lately! It makes me really glowy and gets rid of any dryness. Picking up the full size for sure.

Burts Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes – These were nice makeup removing wipes, if you are looking for some you might like these. I have a makeup eraser though and because it is less wasteful than wipes I’m going to stick to that instead!

Burts Bees Flavor Crystals Lip Balm – This was a lovely lip balm. It kept my lips moisturized, smelled like pineapple, would repurchase!

Current Skincare Routine for Spring/Summer

Hello guys! Today I want to share with you my current skincare routine, it is a lot lighter than the super moisturizing routine I use in winter and it leaves me glowing this time of year!

*I have dry/normal skin*

1. Vapour Beauty Clarity Cleansing Oil


This is a really light cleansing oil and it gets my makeup all off. I love it because it leaves my skin feeling nourished since it leaves a light oily layer behind. It isn’t heavy though, it just feels nourishing, if you have oily skin you might not like this!

2. Terremere Tea and Aloe Hydrating Cleanser


This is so gentle and makes my face feel clean but never stripped of moisture! Also these go on sale on Hautelook for super cheap compared to the price on the Terremere website, so never pay full price for this.

Exfoliate 3x a week – Juice Beauty Exfoliating Cleanser


This is so gentle that you probably could use it everyday. It leaves your skin feeling baby soft and glowy. I like the fact that it is a physical scrub and that it never leaves your skin irritated.

3. Toner – The Body Shop Hydrating Vitamin E Toner


This is my new favorite toner, it is so gentle and works amazingly. I love the way that my skin feels when I use it, super clean and balanced without the tight feeling. It also is not super expensive so I would recommend you pick it up if you have drier skin and want a hydrating toner.

4. Serum – Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum


This is one of my new favorites. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and it has a lot of good ingredients in it. It will feel sticky once you apply it but as soon as you put moisturizer on, it won’t feel sticky anymore and when you wake up your skin will look so renewed and bright.

5. Moisturizer – Acure the Wonderfluff Overnight Mask


So I’ve been using this as a night cream instead of an overnight mask, it is working out well so I’m just going to keep doing that. I just apply it like a moisturizer, and of course it takes a little while to rub in because it is supposed to be a mask. It is very light weight and a good amount of moisturizing, very nice for spring or summer where you don’t want a heavy moisturizer!

Mask 1x a week –  Sonage berry stem cell mask, Acure Pore Clarifying Red Clay Mask


This time of year I like to focus on brightening rather than super hydrating masks, so these are two I’ve been enjoying.I really love both of these and would recommend them!

Sonage Mask Review – here

Acure Pore Clarifying mask – This is wash off mask and as you wash it off it turns into a scrub kind of product, and it really brightens up the complexion!

That is it for my current skincare routine! Let me know what products aree in your skincare routine currently in the comments down below!
