AGE: 23
CITY/STATE:  Medford, Oregon
PHILOSOPHY: Quick and easy!
AM BEAUTY ROUTINE:    First I wash with the Biore charcoal bar, then I apply Clean & Clear acne spot treatment, and Vaseline unscented lotion. For makeup, I use e.l.f. BB cream SPF 20Rimmel’s Stay Matte pressed powder, and e.l.f.’s Contouring Palette. I use Lush’s Eyes Right Mascara and Mabelline’s Brow Pencil & Brush duo; add a swipe of Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm, and that’s it for my daily look!
PM BEAUTY ROUTINE:  For makeup removal, I alternate between using Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic facial wipes, and plain old Organic Coconut oil. Then I wash with either the Biore Charcoal Bar, or Clean & Clear’s scrub. Then I put on some Nivea Creme and call it a night!
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT:  I’m in love with facial masks, particularly Lush’s Mask of Magnamity and Botanic’s Shine Away Clay Mask.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT COSMETIC:   Lush’s Eyes Right Mascara– I wear contacts and have sensitive skin and this mascara doesn’t cause irritation like others have.
MOST EXPENSIVE PRODUCT:   Lush’s Mask of Magnamity
BEST BARGAIN PRODUCT:  E.L.F. pretty continually impresses me with their quality and price point, and I really love their different foundations.

COMMENTS:  If you don’t subscribe to a monthly Beauty box, I highly recommend it. It’s a very affordable way to introduce yourself to new beauty products that are customized to your preferences and features. Plus, it’s a surprise in the mail every month and many allow you to skip a month if you know you can’t afford it. I love mine, try it!
