Looking for a gentle cleanser that purifies the pores without stripping the skin? @caudalie’s Vinopure Pore Purifying Gel Cleanser* is THE perfect cleanser for combo, sensitive, and even mature skin that experiences occasional blemishes and congested pores! This gel-to-foam, pore purifying cleanser is powered by 100% natural Salicylic Acid to gently purify the skin while minimizing pores, blemishes and oil. The gentle non-drying formula also features Grapeseed Polyphenols, Organic Essential Oils, redness-reducing Grape Water, and organic Rose Water to promote a healthy glow. Not only does it smell incredible but it leaves skin feeling instantly fresh, clean and balanced, never stripped which is great for even the most sensitive skin types. This cleanser provides such an uplifting sensory experience that I look forward to each morning and at $28.00 for 150ml is fairly budget friendly. *gifted ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #caudalie #mycaudalie #gelcleanser #porecleansing #clearskin #glowingskin #sensitiveskincare #pores #coloradoblogger

Are you feeling as unprepared for this week as I am? Even after a pretty restful weekend I have to admit I’m still pretty out of it this morning. But nothing like a good @mycaudalie shelfie to improve your mood! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mycaudalie #shelfie #mondaymotivation #caudalie #frenchbeauty #skincareroutine #igbeauty #coloradoblogger

Are you as happy as I am that it’s Friday?!?! Going for a warm fall look for date night tonight and as always, grabbing for my faves from @kosascosmetics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m really enjoying these VERY fall-friendly 10-second liquid eyeshadow shades and like the look of Copper Halo* all over the bottom half of the lid with a dot of Supreme* at the center of my eyelids. What’s your favorite @kosascosmetics eyeshadow? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *kindly gifted by the brand but opinions are all my own #kosas #beautyundone #kosascosmetics #fridaynight #10secondeyeshadow #datenight #makeupideas #autumnmakeup #eyeshadowlooks #makeuplooks #igbeauty #cleanbeauty #nontoxicbeauty #mua

‘‘Tis the season for Ceramidin! 💛 In a dry climate like Colorado, the moment temps start to drop, my skin turns into the Sahara desert. I’ve been experimenting with various moisturizers to meet my daily needs and am really enjoying the @drjart Ceramidin Cream* which has become a daytime staple! Not only is it super rich and hydrating but I feel like it creates a protective shield for my skin and it wears so beautifully under make up. We’re talking dewy glow perfection! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This formula combines a complex of 5 Ceramides with Hyaluronic Acid, Beet Root, and the probiotic Bifida Ferment Lysate to moisturize and strengthen skin. This cream is a great option for anyone with a compromised barrier as well as normal, dry or very dry skin experiencing dryness, itchiness, roughness, and discomfort. $48 for 1.69oz and a little goes a long way! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *gifted #drjart #ceramidincream #ceramides #ceramidin #kbeauty #winterskin #dryskin #itchyskin #kbeautyaddict #denverblogger

Fall vibes. Loving the shades in Phoenix, Stardust & Fringe right now because there’s something to suit every mood this season! These @kosascosmetics lipsticks are so creamy and wear beautifully. I love that you can blot just a bit for a lip stain finish or layer for full on glam. And the packaging is just so chic! I can’t say enough good things about @kosascosmetics.💋 #holygrail . . . #kosascosmetics #beautyundone #lipstick #fallcolors #makeup #igbeauty #makeuplooks #kosas

#MiniMonday Starting the week off fresh with some minis from @freshbeauty. Fresh is actually one of those brands I’ve dabbled with for years but have (for whatever reason) never fully indulged. I tend to get overwhelmed with where to start but I think it’s about time I added a few of their goodies to my arsenal. What are some of your Fresh faves? The top 4 @freshbeauty products that have been on my radar are the Crème Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask, Black Tea Kombucha Antioxidant Essence, Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash, and Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask. If you’ve tried any of these I’d love to hear your thoughts!! . . . #freshbeauty #mondaymorning #skincare #selfcare #blacktea #skincareroutine #skincarediary #slaytheflatlay #discoverunder5k #skincareobsessed #skincarecommunity #365skincare

beautyandthebites. It’s been a busy week of work and prep for our big annual Halloween pa

It’s been a busy week of work and prep for our big annual Halloween party and I can’t wait until tonight when I can soak in a hot bath with my new favorite the @olehenriksen PHAT Glow Facial™ Mask* on! - We all have our favorite hydrating mask to replenish the skin, our go-to acid clay mask to purify, and our must-have acid mask to exfoliate and increase cell turnover, but what I love about this mask is that it combines all three! You get Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs) which is are a gentler alternative to AHAs, Nordic Birch Sap to hydrate and nourish skin, and Pink Bentonite Clay to clarify and renew. I’ve been using this twice a week for the past 2 weeks and I notice that my skins immediately smoother, texture is dramatically reduced, pores are less visible, and my skin tone is super radiant and feels thoroughly hydrated. This mask truly is “the perfect pre-makeup, ‘get ready with me’ prep step”. - I love the chic, minimal packaging. It has a creamy clay texture with a gorgeous pink hue. The scent is light and has a creamy, almost maple syrup/sandalwood aroma that I enjoy. The creamy texture also has a beautiful spreadability that makes application super easy. It transforms into a white mask as the product dries down but does not become aggressively dry like your typically face-cracking clay mask. This beauty is $49.00 for 1.7 oz/ 50 mL and as an effective 3-in-1 treatment is well worth it! . . . *gifted #olehenriksen #phatglow #facemask #facialfriday #claymask #polyhydroxyacid #PHA #AHA #pores #hydratingmask #smoothskin #clearskin #getglowing #makeupprep #igbeauty #greenbeauty

Gimme ALL the ceramides cause mama’s skin is dry!! I recently received the NEW @sundayriley ICE Ceramide Moisturizing Cream* and have been using it for the past week and I have to tell you, my dehydrated skin has been drinking it up and even after the first night using it I noticed an immediate smoothing and more youthful plumpness in my skin. - This is a pro-ceramide moisturizer that helps to strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier against environmental stressors for plump-looking, baby-soft skin. If you a huge fan of AHA/BHAs like myself this is also a great option for helping with that compromised barrier that can result from overusing acids. This beauty also contains Vitamin F which replenishes lipid levels and strengthens the skin’s natural moisture barrier and Coconut which increases skin moisturization (may not be suitable for super sensitive skin types). - The texture on this moisturizing cream is rich and initially feels thick but it absorbs in perfectly after about 10-15 minutes. I find the scent to be on the fruity side with hints of citrus, melon and berries. It’s nice and refreshing but also quickly dissipates after application. While this hadn’t been on my radar previously, I am very happy with the results and think it is a really wonderful option for dryer/dehydrated skin types during the Fall/Winter months. At $65 for 1.7oz it is consistent with others in the same category and a product I would repurchase. . . . *gifted #sundayriley #skicnareroutine #winterskincare #thesundayedit #sundayrileyice #ceramide #skinmoisturizer #moisturizers #facemoisturizer #facecreams #skinhealthy #facecareroutine #babysmooth #lastinghydration #hydrationstation #balancedandbeautiful #crueltyfreebeauty

Does your skin turn dry AF the moment the calendar hits fall? Maybe it’s just the Denver climate but mine sure does! Which just means it’s time to up the hydration when it comes to my skincare routine and one of my favorite ways to do that is masking…frequently. - @ernolaszlonyc recently gifted me their #LaszloIcon exclusive Must-Have Masking Set which includes 4 of our best-selling mask treatments to detoxify, soothe, hydrate and replenish skin. - I’m already a long-time fan of their Multi-Task Eye Serum Masks which are perfectly saturated and cooling to quickly reduce puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles, so I was excited to see these included. A new fave is the Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask which is a weightless overnight formula (no sticky pillow) that truly replenishes moisture levels and vital nutrients while you rest. I love a good hydrogel sheet mask and am excited to test out the Detox Hydrogel Mask which has an innovative-delivery system that removes dead skin cells and cleanses deep down, for a poreless, radiant appearance. Will save this for my next big event! Last but not least I can not wait to try their Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment. Rubberizing masks are SO fun and this  soothing, plumping peel-off mask cools and delivers vital nutrients, refreshing and improving the appearance of fine lines, so skin looks younger and re-energized. . . . #ernolaszo #facemaskgoals #facemasklover #laszloglow #ernolaszlonyc #luxuryskincare #skincarejunkie #skincareobsessed #skincareaddict #skincarediary #instaskincare #beautycommunity #skincareproducts #denverblogger

#HEALTHYSNACKS. Are you having as much trouble waking up this morning as I am? I’ve been doing #intermittentfasting for a couple of months now but it’s on mornings like these when I’m feeling particularly sluggish that it’s the hardest. I typically like to make something fresh and healthy to break the fast but there are times when I am too hungry to spend the time and energy in the kitchen, especially if I’ve just worked out. So in these cases I like to carry around a good, clean protein bar for times when I need something quick. That’s when these new #glutenfree bars from @jimmybars come in handy! - Today I’m thinking of starting with the WAKE & FOCUS Cookies 'N Cream bar. It’s infused with Guarana caffeine, and both MCT oil and Omega 3 oils to feed your brain cells and keep your head in the game and your body moving. It features a combination of delicious gluten-free cookie crumbles and velvety milk chocolate, with the strength of 19g of clean protein. This bar will make your brain fire on all cylinders and keep you awake and focused on the days tasks. - Another great option is the WAKE IT UP! A White Chocolate Café Latte bar infused with Guarana, a natural plant-based source of caffeine, to give you the energy boost you crave to take on what awaits you. As the name suggests, this one combines the flavor or cafe latte with decadent white chocolate, 21g of protein and only 6g of sugar. . . . #jimmybars #proteinbars #postworkout #brainfuel #mondaymorning #energy #wakeup #cookiesandcream #latte #whitechocolate

FALL COLORS. I was VERY intrigued by the NEW 10-Second Eyeshadows from the moment @kosascosmetics began teasing them and I’m happy to say that they definitely live up to the hype! For those of you that haven’t tried them yet, 10-Second Eyeshadow is a clean, water-based, fast-drying and crease-resistant formula for buildable, high-impact color that stays all day (and boy does it). It's meant to be worn as a wash of color for the most modern take on a fresh eye but can also be layered for a high-intensity pop of color or even combined for a more customized look. What’s great is that, as with all @kosascosmetics formulas, these are carefully crafted with skin benefiting ingredients to smooth and tone — that’s skincare for your eyelids. Pictured here are the shades Globe (neutral champagne), Supreme (warm glittery gold), Copper Halo (warm coppery rose gold) that are all unique and couldn’t be more perfect for Fall! Globe is my daily go-to and such a great neutral for all skin tones and levels of makeup expertise. Supreme has the most “sparkle” leaving a wash of warm glittery gold behind making it perfect for a night out and a #musthave during the holiday season! Copper Halo is the boldest of the 3, reading more warm copper than rose gold on my light complexion, and gives a sultry pop of color that I like for date nights or drinks with the girls. Actually going to a @kosascosmetics event at @ailleabeauty here in Denver tomorrow night and looking forward to trying some of the other shades in person. In the future I would LOVE to see a metallic or opal taupe/grey shade along the lines of Make Up Forever ME-554 - gunmetal and/or Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow in Glass Bull! . . . #beautyundone #kosascosmetics #10secondeyeshadow #creameyeshadow #greenbeauty #mua #makeuplewks #makeup #eyeshadow #beautyaddict #cleanbeauty #igbeauty #crueltyfreebeauty

#FRENCHBEAUTY. Have been lacking inspiration a bit over the past month but with lots of incredible change happening lately I felt motivated to rifle through my collection today in search of something that might #sparkjoy. Very quickly I was reminded of my passion for French beauty products! From luxury to pharmacy, @caudalie and @biologique_recherche to @fredericmalle and @diptyque, I really do adore the quality and sensory experience that comes with French beauty products. I CAN NOT wait until the moment I can get back to Paris but in the meantime I’ll settle for being transported (in spirit) by these beauties! ❤️ 🇫🇷 . . . #caudalie #biologiquerecherche #diptyque #lauramercier #loccitane #leonorgreyl #nuxe #citypharma #frenchpharmacy #frenchskincare #skincareobsessed #p50 #lotionp50 #travel #paris #masquevivant #laitvipo2 #skincareroutine #shelfie

BODY TALK. These @paulaschoice body treatments were essential for keeping my skin smooth and hydrated throughout the summer and will continue to be my go-to’s well I to winter! • The Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA is (as the name suggests) lightweight and absorbs quickly without and residue making it perfect for the summer or anyone who doesn’t like the feel of a thicker body cream. I like to apply directly out of the shower and then if I want a scented lotion I’ll apply that 10 minutes or so later. But overall this has REALLY helped to smooth out dry patches and uneven texture on the back of my arms and helped eliminate the tiny little bumps I get after shaving on my upper legs. My husband, who is prone to keratosis pilaris, also finds it to be very helpful and I’m really curious to get his feedback on the 10% version! • The Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% has a bit more of a rich lotion consistency so I’ve been saving it for the brutally dry winter months here in Denver and will be adding this beauty into rotation this week. Curious to see how the increased AHA % will effect my results. With antioxidants, ceramides, and a targeted peptide, I have a feeling that the Daily Replenishing Body Cream will be another winter skin savior! . . . #paulaschoice #bodylotion #bodycare #bodycareroutine #keratosispilaris #smoothskin #winterskin #winterskincare #skincareroutine #crueltyfreebeauty #igbeauty #beautyaddicts #denverblogger

OVERNIGHT MOISTURE THERAPY. As we transition into the dryer, cooler months a sleep mask becomes an essential part of my skincare routine! The new Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask from @ernolaszlo is perfect for moisturizing and pampering parched skin, making it a great addition to my current lineup. - This mask is a gorgeous pink color and the scent is absolutely beautiful, not to mention the chic, minimal jar is perfect #vanitygoals! Now to the ingredients…this beauty contains Prickly Pear, Green Ginger and Mugwort Extracts which are known for their ability to attract water in challenging environments, Winged Kelp Extract which is rich in omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids, to leave skin feeling firmer and more resilient, and their fruit-derived dual-action Recovery Complex that brightens for a youthful, healthy glow. I love that this is a super hydrating but weightless formula which means it absorbs quickly (no sticky pillow here) and delivers unprecedented moisture by locking in vital nutrients while you rest. Get ready for a dewy, hydrated, well-rested complexion, literally overnight! . . . #laszloicon #ernolasazlo #laszloglow #sleepmask #skincarereviews #dryskin #dehydratedskin #winterskincare #denverblogger

#FRIDAYNIGHT. With a busy weekend ahead my Friday night plans include a killer hair routine! My go-to styling method at the moment is to air dry, smooth out with the @amika styling brush, go through with @verbproducts Ghost Oil, create loose waves with a curling wand, and finish with the @verbproducts Sea Spray. Gives me the best beach waves that last well through the weekend! 🧜‍♀️ . . . #friendgoals #verbfriends #hairgoals #verbhaircare #mermaidwaves #beachwaves #friyay #weekendvibes #igbeauty #instabeauty #beautyaddict #femfeed #haircaretips #verbproducts #haircareroutine #haircareproducts #denverblogger @verbfriends

FITNESS. Have definitely been upping my workout game this past month with a new personal trainer, regular walks, yoga and spin classes, and have really been loving my new Misfit Ronin* smart watch from @misfitwearables to track my daily progress! . I’ve actually been getting tons of compliments because the Ronin looks like a cute, sporty analog watch but acts like a smart watch! It synchs with the app to track both workouts and sleep (man has this been eye opening), and even has call and text notifications. My fave feature by far is the smart button that you can customize! I set mine up to locate my phone, which I misplace on average at least 5 times a day, and it’s been a total game changer. And bonus, it has a battery life up to 1 year before the battery needs to be changed so no need to remember to charge it every day. . *I did receive the Misfit Ronin as part of a collaboration with @joinpalm. . . . #femfeed #palmbffs #joinpalm #AllNewAllYou #MisfitCommand #MisfitPath #BeAMisfit #styleinspo #smartwatch #fitnesstransformation #liveauthentic #interchangeablestraps #straps #adventure #empowerment #happiness #traveller #picoftheday #thatsdarling #youbeyou #justgoshoot #newweeknewgoals #starttheweekright #fitnesstracker #smartwatch #adjustablestraps #stainlesssteelbracelets #outfitonpoint #elevateyourstyle #fitnesslifestyle #travellifestyle #smartwatch
