GÖTZ BAD ISCHL Oxygen Facial Tonic

Good evening lovelies!

For the past couple months I’ve gotten extremely lazy with my skincare routine, I’ll wash my face, and moisturize, and that’s it….

I’ve been ignoring my numerous face masks and scrubs, and my toners and serums have been sorely neglected. But recently I received some new toners and lotions in the mail to review and they’ve made me realize how much I miss spending a good chunk of time pampering my skin, so I’m hoisting myself back on the horse, and I’m going to start implementing my skincare stash!

A German brand called Gotz sent me this unique toner to try out, it’s called GÖTZ BAD ISCHL Oxygen Facial Tonic.It’s a dark tinted gentle toner with a subtle herbal scent, and it comes in a glass bottle with a spray pump. I usually spray it onto cotton pads and then use the pad to apply it liberally to my face. I let that soak in and dry a couple moments before moving on to moisturizer, I’ve been trying not to rush through things as much lately. 
My skin has been clearing up on it’s own as of late, but this definitely gave it a pick me up, and has been very refreshing and enjoyable to use each night.

Making new habits

Morning all!

Well hey there, long time no see….. sorry about the radio silence! I decided making mini posts for every nail design is redundant since I post almost the exact same thing on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, so I’m going to start only posting long wordy things here in bloggy land, and keep my eyecandy over on my other social media. *cough-check out the handy dandy buttons on the side for all my profiles-cough*

I’ve gotten into the bad habit of only using jojoba oil for my skincare routine and that’s it. I dropped using any serums or lotions, and barely use any of my face masks. So needless to say my skin is not too pleased with me; I’m going to try to not be quite so lazy moving forward.
Lately I’ve been using this toner from Valentia, it has witch hazel + tea tree oil, which I use all the time so this actually makes my routine go a bit quicker by combining the two. And then as far as cleansers go, I’m using Swissvita’s Cleanser Cream, it’s a super gentle thick cream that foams into a cleanser. I use a pea sized dollop of the cream with warm water each night. I’d compare this to Cetaphil in terms of gentleness, but with a bit more oomph. And also since it’s such a thick cream, a little goes an extremely long way, this 3.5 oz tube will last me ages.

Pastel Matte Florals

Morning all!

I was in a pastel matte mood, used the polishes nearest to hand, and it didn’t end up looking too shabby! I just now noticed I have some cat hairs stuck to the edge of my nail, hopefully the pretty glitter outshines them, haha.
