Nail of the Day: Pacific Blue by Sally Hansen

Hello beauties! So first let me just ask, who else is excited about this weekend being the first weekend of summer?! Definitely spending it poolside :) Anyway, with it being officially summer I wanted to share with you all this brightly colored nail polish by Sally Hansen called Pacific Blue. I've never really been into blue nail polishes, I love teals and aquas but I'd never had a true blue colored one like this. I didn't think I could pull off a color like this to be honest, but O.M.G I love the way it looks! I seriously could not stop looking at my nails the first time I used it, its definitely my favorite at the moment. Now I'm excited to try out other blue nail polishes ranging from different brands to different shades of blue!

Do you have a favorite blue polish?

<3 Michelle

This Works: Clean Skin Review

Happy Friday Everyone!

I do have to apologize for the fact that Michelle and I haven’t posted in over a month! Woah..  Michelle was busy with finals, and I have had quite possibly one of the worst couple of weeks of my adult life, but that’s a different story, on with the review.I don’t know if you guys have heard of a company called This Works, it’s a company that sells a variety of products, mostly skincare with a few other things mixed in. I feel like their philosophy is quite simple, they make natural products that are beneficiary to the skin, and quite simply, they do work.I have five full sized products from them and 3 samples, and I love every single one of these little gems. However, today I just want to talk about the two products that I own from their Clean Skin line.

Clean Skin: 5 in 1 cleansing water

How do I put this professionally? Holy freaking grail! This is the best makeup remover I have ever tried. Now, I have never tried the Bioderma, so I can’t comment on how it compares to this, but I have tried many other makeup removers (drugstore and high end) that were always just coming up short to my expectations. Not only that, but this can truly be used as your makeup remover, your cleanser and your toner, it’s quite a brilliant product. It also claims to brighten your complexion and decongest your skin, I’m not quite sure about the latter, but it does brighten my complexion a bit, I find that my skin looks less dull the more I use this product, and being someone with awfully dull, dry skin, this is awesome news. You want to know something else? It doesn’t break me out! If anything I feel my skin cleared a bit since I started using this line of products. 5 in 1 Cleansing Water you get 9 out of 10 in my book!!

Why not a 10? Well this product is not exactly cheap, though that’s not really an issue with me, I understand I’m paying for quality, but the shipping…ohhh the shipping I believe I pay about $12 for shipping which is still pretty understandable since it’s coming all the way from Europe, but oh my wallet hurts so much. Also the packaging is SO bulky for how much product it has, I really wish they had a travel version of this, that would be lovely, because as it turns out, I never want to go anywhere without this!

Clean Skin: Gentle Cleanser

I love cleaning my skin with this! At night I use the cleansing water and this after to really deep clean my skin and in the morning I only use the cleansing water. This cleanser is great, it’s definitely gentle, but quite effective, it’s quite refreshing and not drying at all, which is a great thing for my type of skin. This one gets 9.5 out of 10, simply because I’m still trying to get used to the fact that it’s a cream cleanser, but that’s just personal choice. This is quite possibly the best cleanser for my skin, because I have sensitive dry skin and this product really nourishes and attends to the needs of my skin.

This Works..maybe you should have some kind of free shipping worldwide if you spend a certain amount of money?? Even if it was a high amount of money I’m sure I would save up for it and buy your lovely products. Just a thought J

So there you have it! I will be posting another review on Friday, this time on their Perfect Skin line. Have a great weekend everyone!
