Summer Tip #1 - Shaving Your Legs

Don't you hate the tiny red bumps and ingrown hairs left on your legs after shaving? I DOO!!! and I've found a solution that requires no shaving cream, but instead, I switched to a germicidal or antibacterial soap when I shave my legs! Jergens Antibacterial Cream Soap in the 2 Litre jug is the one that I use!

I lather it up until it's nice and foamy and then shave. This soap helps heal and prevent new bumps from occurring because once you shave, you're exposing your pores and skin to bacteria from your razor. By using an antibacterial soap will help kill those blemish causing bacteria for soft clear and smooth legs ready for the beach! I not only use this magical soap whenever I shave my legs, but I also use it daily to wash my legs as well. Of course I'd use regular body wash for the rest of my body. You wouldn't want to use antibacterial soap on your private parts because it will just kill all the "good" bacterial down there, if you know what I mean!

Hope this summer tip helps you ladies out there who have trouble shaving and leaving behind bumps and in-growns! Let me know if it works for you as well! Just remember, the bumps doesn't go away over night, give it about 2 weeks to notice any difference :)

Nivea Visage Eyemakeup Remover Review

So I recently ran out of Eyemakeup remover and decided to try something new, so I picked up a creamy lotion of an Eyemakeup remover opposed to my usual, which are oily solutions. This is my first time trying a Nivea skincare product. If you would like to hear my thoughts on this product then just keep reading :)

There are only good things to say about this Eyemakeup remover lotion. It feels nice, it's very gentle on the eyes and has a very light and fresh scent, and lastly, it won't leave your wallet empty.

I've been using this every night for the last 3 weeks and I am absolutely thrilled of how it does not leave my eyelids feeling greasy or tight and uncomfortable. The most impressive quality about this product is that it does not require any intense rubbing to the eye area to get the makeup off, it simply dissolves your eyemakeup (even waterproof)when used with a cottonpad. I also noticed that the millia that I had under my eyes are slowly going away since I discontinued the use of my oily eyemakeup removing solutions. I've done some research on what may have caused the formation of millia( tiny white dots that appear on the skin area under or around the eyes.) The appearance of millia is normally caused by an excess of rich and oily substances that clog the skin by that delicate area, therefore, my oily makeup remover was the culprit to my millia problem!

The Nivea Visage eyemakeup remover is perfect for those who want to prevent getting fine lines and crows' feet around the delicate skin area around the eyes thanks to the limited rubbing required. I have very sensitive skin and eyes and this does not irritate me at all. Although the packaging is not at all fancy, the product inside is what matters so I highly recommend this product to you all.
