Beauty Tips!

Eyebrows - Never pluck above your brow. If you're like me, you get plenty of dark hairs below your brows as well as above. I never pluck, wax or thread above my eyebrows (UNLESS there is a random stray that needs to go) as we can really lose the shape if messed with. Natural brows are still very in (and hopefully will be forever) so don't worry about them looking too bushy. I personally only pluck my eyebrows myself. I've gotten them waxed a couple of times in the past and hated the way they looked so no thank you. These are the tweezers that I use and absolutely LOVE! I've had them for years and they are still in perfect condition. Highly recommend. In my opinion it makes more sense to ditch all of the cheap tweezers and invest in one amazing pair that will last you forever. Dull tweezers are the absolute WORST!

Crystal Nail File - Oh. my. goodness. I cannot tell you how much switching to a crystal nail file has changed my nails. My nails used to always peel, break, be thin and just not cute. Using this nail file alone made the biggest difference ever. It's also super affordable and lasts years. Never again will I use a non-crystal nile file. 

Lip Treatment ->Before Bed - This, my friends, is delightful. If you want the softest lips in the entire world, simply apply this lip treatment before falling to sleep and wake up in ahh. OBSESSED. I seriously cannot stop rubbing my lips together every morning because they feel SO good!

Growing Eyebrows - If you are looking to grow out your eyebrows, simply rub some coconut oil in-between your fingers and apply it to your eyebrows every night. Rinse in the morning before doing your makeup and WALA! You will slowly start to see a difference :). You can literally find coconut oil anywhere. I like to do this because I used to pluck my eyebrows to the skinniest little lines in high school which was a - HUGE mistake! They grow back so patchy now which is why I resort to coconut oil. Don't make the same mistake I did! BUT, I do still get many complements on my brows thanks to my all time favorite brow styler you can find here (CURRENTLY ON SALE!!!). Most people swear by the Anastasia Brow Wiz which I too like, but trust me when I say that this one IS even better!

Currently Loving

Its been a while since I've done one of these and I have some reeeeally good products for you that I've been testing out (and loving)! 

Juice Beauty has been blowing me away lately! Two of their products have made it onto my, "Currently Loving" post this time around. Let's get into it!...

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment - I can hands down, honestly say, that this is my ALL TIME FAVORITE under eye treatment/cream, EVER. And that's huge. All the way down from the applicator to the solution itself. It is so, so perfect. It's packed with plant-based ingredients designed to feed the skin the antioxidants and vitamins it needs. It feels so. so. good. It goes on so smoothly without leaving any residue behind while filling in any imperfections. I actually probably overuse this stuff because I'm just obsessed. I apply it around 4 times per day when I'm just around the house not wearing makeup (which is most of the time- just ask Matt muahaha) because why not?! 

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Exfoliating Spray - Now, this is the coolest product I've seen/used in a long time. You literally spray this on your face, let it sit for a few of seconds, rub the product around in circular motions while it turns into a gentle exfoliant scrub and rinse. It too, feels SO, so good. It lifts away old skin cells leaving you with the smoothest skin. It is so gentle that I wouldn't be afraid to use it around 3 times per week. 

Tula Exfoliating Treatment Mask - TULA! I absolutely LOVE this mask! A new favorite, no doubt. So many exfoliating masks leave my skin dry after removal but not this one. Seriously, baby butt skin. My face is glowing after every treatment! The color of the mask is so pretty too (incase you're looking for a mask to take selfies in ;P). 

Rose Water Toner - Now that its been getting warmer out here in Florida, I'm back to using my rose toners every day. They just feel and smell so refreshing! I love using rose toners for blemish prevention.  My favorite time to use a rose toner is following a workout or after sun. I believe I found this specific one on Amazon a while back. You can literally just google organic rose water toner and some really good ones will pop up. This one is also a huge favorite of mine :) 

I absolutely LOVE these products! Let me know if there are any products you've been eyeing and would like me to test out before you take the leap :). 
On another note- Spring is almost here!! So excited for all of the new products! Spring & Fall are definitely my two favorite seasons for makeup colors <insert heart eye emoji>

Talk to you soon XO

NeoCell Joint Burst with Turmeric Curcumin Tropical Tang

I've found the MOST DELICIOUS "chews" for joint support. 

I've recently gotten back into my running routine and with this knee of mine, it's a must to keep up with my joint care. These are seriously the most tasty chews I've ever had, I can't even believe they're also doing my knee a favor! Each contain 250mg of collagen type 2, which is the main structural protein of joint cartilage and is what provides strength and cushioning in joints. I am absolutely in love with all things turmeric as is, so the fact that these are full of it (50mg per chew) is just amazing. Each chew also contains 20mg of Hyaluronic Acid which is great for joint hydration. If you suffer from any nagging joint issues, I HIGHLY recommend this product. Ugh, they're so good. The only downfall that I've found regarding these chews is the fact that they only recommend one per day ;) I want to eat the whole bag!!! 

Here's what the box looks like:

Natural Fragrance Oils

I've recently had an obsession with natural fragrance oils. I've always been obsession with perfume but only recently realized how horrible perfume is for us. It smells AMAZING but putting all of those awful chemicals in our bodies just isn't worth it to me. Not only do I love these natural fragrance oils for simply their aromas but certain ones truly do make a difference when it comes to stress relief, anxiety, breathing, and the list goes on. I found this company Kuumba Made on Instagram and am now obsessed! My personal favorite is the Laverndar Lace -which is actually not pictured in this post because I keep it in my purse for the races- :). It truly does take away a lot of that anxiety! 

Absolutely love. 

If you're interested, their website is www.kuumbamade.com

Sorry I've been M.I.A on the blog! As most of you know, we're currently in the Arenacross circuit and it's been crazy, crazy busy- literally a different State every single weekend. I'm much more active on Instagram so make sure you're following me there as well (erin_coakley). Note- Sometimes I host Instagram only giveaways!  :) Love you all!!

*Reminder* No, this is not a sponsored post. These are my real opinions towards these products. I WILL NEVER influence my readers towards a product that I do not 100% believe in. <3
