We are HUGE believers in taking care of your skin. That might sound like a "DUH" thing for us girls especially, but you'd be surprised at how many girls don't wash their face every night and sleep with their makeup on. We're not experts or anything, but we've just learned the hard way, that we have to keep your face clean and fresh so we don't break out. For the lucky girls out there that don't have to wash their face and makeup off every night, you are so lucky!! We have a friend that would sleep in her makeup every night and would NEVER get any pimples. It was so unfair. We could never do that with our skin types. That's why we've become nazi's (pardon our language) when it comes to washing our face and doing regular facial routines every night.
When it comes to skin and acne, it's a sensitive subject for us because we have dealt with some of the WORST skin. Sarah had really bad acne prone skin in junior high and high school. I (Ashlyn) didn't have any acne until my freshman year of college. I think there was a combination of my moving from California to Utah, with the elevation change and climate change and stress and maybe even hormones that caused it. But from that point on, I was really sensitive and serious with how I treated my skin. We can tell you that we have used almost every product on the market.
We are now in our mid-20's, but our skin is still prone to break outs. So we are still really sensitive and use the right kind of products on our skin. We have always been super picky when it comes to any product we put on our face. So when we tried the eminence masques for the first time, and saw RESULTS the first time, we were super excited and impressed.
The lime stimulating masque is a great masque that stimulates the inner layers of the skin to increase cellular renewal and bring about a healthier, more youthful complexion. It feels hot when applied first, but cools down after about a minute. We love this masque because it makes your face glow and feel rejuvenated.
The clear skin probiotic masque soothes inflamed skin and clears breakouts. It has lactic acid, clay, tea tree oil and shea butter to purify skin and clear blemishes. We have used this masque when we have pimples, and see the diminish the very next day.
The phyto-c olive superheal serum is a great product as well. This is something that I (Ashlyn) have been using for a couple months now. I have always had redness and red spots on my face by my chin and jaw line, but as I have been using this serum, I have noticed it diminishing those spots! It really heals my skin! Some of the major benefits of this serum are: antioxidant protection against UV damage, collagen production, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, reduces scar tissue and stretch marks, promotes wound healing, improves and relieves symptoms of acne and rosacea and refines skin texture, smoothes and firms skin. I just put it on every morning and it makes my face feel so smooth and refreshed.
These products can get pretty expensive, but they last long and are so so good for your skin. We believe that when it comes to skin, it's really important to invest in organic and pure products.
Our # 1 favorite thing about eminence is that it uses only organic ingredients. It is very fresh and pure, so there are no harsh chemicals going through your pores and into your body.
We hope you try at least one of these because you will LOVE them. They have made such a difference in our skin appearance, and our confidence. We'd love to hear what products you love or if you have any recommendations.
Let us know! We hope you are having a fabulous Friday and a great rest of your weekend!
This is my first time using this product and I must say that I LOVE it. It really helps give your hair texture and volume without teasing. I have super thick hair so I teased it a little but with the powder in my hair. But it makes volumizing so much easier! I love that it has such texture. A little bit goes a long way!
This product is great for when you wear your hair down, up, and especially with braids or up dos.

I love this hairstyle because it is so simple, easy and cute! I am not the best at doing braids so finding a shortcut lookalike is what I am always looking for. This hairstyle took me literally under 5 minutes.
I used 4 different products:
1: Dry Shampoo Batiste
2. Paul Mitchell Extra Body Sculpting Foam
3. Frizz-Ease Hairspray
