In the winter, when my skin tends to get dry, dull, and flaky. I’m always on the hunt for products to give me back my radiant glow. That is why I turned to Origins Original Skin set. 

My favorite is the Rose Clay mask. It works as an exfoliant that helps create a fresh canvas for your moisturizer and serum. It shrinks your pores and gets rid of those pesky blackheads that appear on your nose. 

 

The Matte moisturizer with Willowherb is hydrating and has a pleasant, faint orange citrus scent. It absorbs into the skin leaving it exquisitely soft.

The renewal serum illuminates and fills fine lines to create a smooth base that almost exiles concealers. It’s a soft pearl pink which also slightly color corrects.

Overall, the mask, moisturizer, and serum were exactly what I needed to give my skin a little pick-me-up this winter season. All three are worth the buy and last a long time even using it everyday. 

Once you try let me know your results in the comments below!

I’ve never used any kind of in-home chemical peel and was somewhat leery about trying this product, but I gave it a chance because I know Lancôme is a trustworthy brand. So, here’s how the first 14 days went: Continue reading “My 28-day skin transformation with Lancôme’s Visionnaire Crescendo”

Black Friday: 5 Blog Resolutions for 2017

black-open-shoulder-bow-tie-detail-sweatshirt_sheinHappy Friday you guys! When I first started Black + Black, I knew very little about how the blogging world worked. I followed many fashion bloggers’ social media channels, but not their blogs.

Only when people started asking me about my style did I start doing more research to figure out how to create a website, what hosting site to use and what camera to use. I felt completely overwhelmed but was instantly inspired by this industry.

Now that the first year has flown by, I thought today’s post should be all about reflecting on my first year of blogging and how I can make improvements through 5 resolutions for 2017!
