This toner is SUPER easy to make, as well as cheap to make! Witch hazel is a great toner for the skin and the aspirin helps to clear acne and even out skin tone!
- Witch hazel (this can be purchased at your local drugstore)
- Uncoated ASA (aspirin)
- Clean, empty pump or squirt bottle
- Pour 1- 1.5 cups of witch hazel into your container.
- Add 4 ASA tablets.
- Shake well and wait for the aspirin to dissolve.
- Be sure to shake before each use.
- Just apply to a cotton pad and rub all over face, avoiding the eye area.
I recently picked up this new polish from OPI. When applied over an already dry polish it cracks to create a “shattered” look. I thought it looked really neat and I wanted to try it.
I paired it with a dark pink polish and got this result (Forgive my messy job, I’m not very good at painting my own nails :P)
Overall I’m very impressed and I like it a lot! You definitely need to apply a top coat though, because the Shatter polish is fairly matte. Easy to do and what an awesome effect! I think it cost me about $12 and so worth it!
I recently saw a few videos on Youtube about this and I thought I would share my thoughts.
Skin needs nourishing. I need anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and love. However be careful how many products you layer onto your face. Too many products and your skin will become overloaded!
Here are the products/routine I use at night and before I go to bed.
- First, I remove my make-up using Clarins make-up remover (Or Ponds cold cream) and either a washcloth or damp baby wipes.
- Next I cleanse my face with a Tea tree cleanser. Rinsing well.
- Next I use Arbonne’s RE9 Regenerating toner. This is one of my favorite toners! It’s full of vitamins A, C, E and more anti-oxidant rich ingredients. It’s also pH-balanced.
- After that I use the RE9 Intensive Renewal serum and sometimes add a drop of tea tree oil and/or vitamin E.
- Last but not least, eye cream! Under the eyes and around the orbital bone. Prevent and treat those wrinkles and delicate eye area!
