Confession #22: I’m a Lancôme Lover!

Hi Dolls!

So I found this awesome website one day called She Speaks, and I signed up. I experienced my first twitter parties and wrote quite a few of my first reviews.  Anyways I had kind of forgotten about it being that I got super busy with school and all of my extra curriculars until I received an email  saying I had qualified to test some product from Lancome! I of course jumped at the chance, took a quick survey and promptly received my product.

What was the product?

I received Lancome DreamTone in 3 (which is for a darker complexion) check out all the stats of the product here.

My first Impression:

When I opened the box from  She Speaks I was instantly excited! The packaging of the product alone was so beautiful I couldn’t stand it! I mean just look at it

First of all the product is scented, which may be a little strong for my preferences, but the good thing about the scent was that it did not linger. As soon as you rub it in it goes away. DreamTone is also very light, its actually lighter then some moisturizers I have, and it doesn’t leave any noticeable residue on your face.

The application process is really simple. The bottle comes with a pump, and you only need one pump to get enough for your whole face. You simply put it on after you cleanse, and apply your moisturizer over that.

DreamTone is meant to be a skin tone correction serum. It is supposed to fix your dark spots, color imperfections, and uneven skin tones. I personally am a skeptical person, so I honestly did not think it would work, but I was happily proven wrong.

I wish I had taken a before picture because this worked for me like a dream! I had these dark spots right underneath my cheek bones that always bugged me because I would have to pile on the makeup to hopefully cover them up. I also have a birth mark underneath my right eye that is rather large and I don’t really like, and around that area I would have a lot of weird colorization, more often than not.

DreamTone helped me with both of those issues, plus totally evening out my skin tone and giving my bare face a bit of a smoother look. The dark spots underneath my cheekbones are virtually gone, the color imperfections around birth mark significantly diminished, and my skin just looked generally brighter! This was only after about a month of continuous use. (twice a day)  I am so pleased with Lancome DreamTone!

Lancome is so confident in their product that they are encouraging women to bare it all after they use DreamTone!

I am happy to say that I am comfortable enough with my bare skin (minus a few stress breakouts! I mean it is finals week) to share with you my contribution to Project #bareselfie!

So here it is!

My #bareselfie! It looks pretty darn good if I do say so myself!


I 100% recommend this product to anyone who is suffering from discoloration or anything of that matter, it works!

A huge thank you to SheSpeaks and Lancome USA for giving me an opportunity to try this amazing product!

As always thanks for reading!

Confession #15: I have an obbsession with my vanity

Hi dolls!

So I haven’t written anything in literally 2 months. This is not OK at all! I’ve been back at school for a little bit and now that I don’t feel like I’m going to die from the stress I feel like I will be able to get back into my groove! I have so many posts in draft that it isn’t funny, so be warned you will be seeing this face pop up a lot!

Anyways, I moved into my new apartment, which I absolutely LOVE! My roommates are amazing, and so is the actual apartment. I’m thinking about doing a room tour soon, just so you can see how amazing it really is! In my new room my absolute favorite feature is my vanity! As I watched my makeup collection grow I became obsessed with having a cute and organized Vanity, and while mine may not look as cute as the one I’ve seen on pinterest. I absolutely LOVE it!

So here is a little gallery.

  • The wire organizing drawers came from IKEA,you can find it here. It was a steal at $14.99.
  • The wire organizing baskets came from IKEA as well you can find them here. They were $2.99 for a set of two.
  • The drawer organizers came from Walmart and were $4.99 for an 8 piece set. I can’t find the link but they are awesome!
  • The vanity was a hand me down from a friend, which I absolutely adore!

I hope you all enjoy my “comeback” post.


Confession #2: My hair has a mind of its own

Summer time is almost here! I have to say I am very excited, I can almost feel that summer sun kissing my skin. Summer is no doubt my favorite season, but I have to say, I hate it almost as much as I love it. Now you are probably wondering, how in the world can you have summer?!?! I know right! whats not to love about a nice little break from school, a day by the pool, a vacation to the beach, tanning and just being carefree.

I’ll tell you whats not to love…WATER. That’s right good old H2O. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about a cool refreshing glass of water on a hot day, because nothing is better than that! I’m talking about water in larger scales. For a mixed beauty like myself, water becomes public enemy number one! The only problem is I love water! I love swimming and splashing around.So every summers day, when I receive an invite to the lake or the pool the battle between getting in or unleashing the dreaded beast begins. What exactly is the beast? I’m glad you asked. The beast is something that can’t be tamed, its unruly, and its ugly… that’s right the beast is what I like to call my half-fro, Being that I don’t put any type of product in my hair, the minute my hair comes within 100 feet of a body of water it instantly poofs out. So the luxury of knowing just what my hair is going to do is gone for now.

This summer I am officially embracing the beast! Cheers to my Afro Summer and cheers to you! Join me in embracing your beasts whatever they may be!
