Blue Light & Beauty
Do you know the new buzzword in the beauty industry? “Screen Face” - skin damage caused by our dependence on digital technology. Aside from contributing to gradual vision loss and sleep problems, blue light is also causing you to look a lot older than you actually are. The skin around your eyes is one of the thinnest and most sensitive areas of your body, and becomes the most damaged when exposed to blue light, resulting in: 👇🏼
I have been loving these Anti-Blue Light Glasses from Topfoxx: http://bit.ly/2O0FU7B
(So much, that I am wearing them as we speak.)
This Audrey in Tortoise style is already sold out and other styles are running low! Use code FANCY15 to save $$$ and your eyes while you can! http://bit.ly/2O0FU7B
TIP: You can also adjust the settings on your phone to reduce the blue light. Definitely set your phone to dim a few hours before you typically go to bed to prevent blue light-induced insomnia!
(I received these products complimentary for testing purposes.)
I have been testing out the Rouge Signature Matte Colored Lip Inks by L'Oréal Paris. The shades I have include: I Create, I Am Worth It, and I Rule. They have such a unique texture and formula compared to all of my other lip products! I did a video with my review and swatches if you are interested!
P.S. Meet my new handbag. Her name is Whitney.

Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic
Pixi Beauty sent me this vanity set with a giant #GlowTonic right before Christmas & I have been using it ever since!
My skin can be a little sensitive at times, so I started by using it every other night to test the waters since this is a chemical exfoliant. I have found it to be gentle enough to use every day with no irritation.
If you are still using one of those apricot scrubs to exfoliate your skin, put it down! They can cause micro-tears in the skin which can invite bacteria to enter. If you are overwhelmed with AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) this is a great choice because it’s super gentle and alcohol free!
AHAs can penetrate the skin at a deeper level to address oiliness, acne, blackheads, fine lines & dullness. Pixi GlowTonic includes 5% glycolic acid as the active ingredient. It also includes aloe vera to soothe irritation and hydrate skin.
Ginseng is the unsung hero in this toner, because it can stimulate the metabolism of your skin (who knew?) This encourages the production of collagen, which is essentially the fountain of youth. Ginseng may also treat dark spots and undereye circles.
☀️Make sure you use SPF whenever you are actively using an AHA product.
💡If you are sensitive, try to introduce this toner into your routine gradually instead of am & pm daily as suggested on the bottle.

Forencos Cleansing Balm Review
𝘝-𝘙𝘐𝘎𝘏𝘛 𝘕𝘌𝘞 𝘛𝘖𝘕𝘌 𝘊𝘓𝘌𝘈𝘕𝘚𝘐𝘕𝘎 𝘉𝘈𝘓𝘔 #texturetuesday
I picked this up at either TJ Maxx or Marshall's because the packaging caught my eye. This product is made in Korea, so nothing beyond the front of the package was in English. I could only assume that besides being a cleansing balm, it also included some brightening ingredients.
For my every day makeup removal, I tend to use a makeup wipe or micellar water; but when I have a full face this is what I use to remove it. I love how a balm melts away hard to remove makeup without having to rub or tug too hard at the delicate skin around my eyes. Although this does not irritate my skin, it does very slightly sting my eyes—I assume because it is not just a basic cleansing balm, but also a brightening product. It also leaves a little bit of a film on my eyes for a little bit, but I tend to use this immediately before bed.
I decided to do a little research & check out their website to see what additional information I could find. Lo and behold, that is also in Korean, short of a few random catch phrases like, “only the most abundant food contains vitamins!” It claims to “gently remove makeup and dead cells without irritation, while brightening your skin.” The active ingredients are Kakadu Plum Extract, Camu Camu Extract, and Acerola Extract. After a little googling, I discovered that these ingredients are very high in vitamin C. Besides it’s work as a brightening agent, Vitamin C also supports the production of collagen. By the looks of the photos on their website, this cleansing balm also includes: cactus, aloe, green tea, pearl, Snow lotus, witch hazel, and rumex crispus root.
I’m not sure if I would seek out this exact brand once I run out, but I will definitely be repurchasing a cleansing balm product in the future. 𝕎𝕙𝕚𝕔𝕙 𝕠𝕟𝕖 𝕚𝕤 𝕪𝕠𝕦𝕣 𝕗𝕒𝕧𝕖?
