My Night Routine

I’ve really wanted to share this with you guys for the longest time but it’s like things just keep popping up and this time I decided to finally just sit back and get personal.

This routine is very simple but it’s worked amazing for me for quite awhile now and I honestly don’t see it changing for a long time. These products are very inexpensive but the best of the drug store abundance for my skin, keep in mind that I am a college student and I’m like literally broke all the time *insert sad laugh here* Lets get started shall we?

Part 1: The washing of the face

11412222_1009872379031421_7770669800696375445_n

Am Refreshing Facial Cleanser – $6

Guys you don’t understand how many facial cleansers I’ve tried, like the number is so depressing because I could never find the right one for my skin, that actually worked. So I’ve been using “Am Refreshing Facial Cleanser” for about 6 months now and I’ve definitely been seeing a lot of improvements in my face. The little beads in there really help get the dirt out and make my face a lot smoother. I love it and would definitely recommend it. plus you can’t beat the price of $6

Part 2: The Mask

11665501_1009872419031417_8854218670418455188_n

Freeman Facial Clay Mask: Avocado & Oatmeal Mask – $5

I love this mask, like words can’t describe my love for this. It truly helps control my oily face and leaves my skin glowing and soft. Some of the other mixes do dry out your skin faster than others so be careful which mix you decide to go with.

Oh gosh I found this photo of me down below in my beauty mask lol please don’t laugh at me.

Part 4: The Tonning

11008541_1009872389031420_6541027248896909531_n

Clean & Clear Essential Deep Cleaning Toner – $6

I was never really used to toners, I actually didn’t even know what they were for a very long time. But ever since I started to use this I’ve definitely seen results, my blackheads are starting to disappear, it clears out my acne and it actually cleans takes out my dead skin. When I use this I always feel so refreshed after. Go get yourself some, what are you waiting for?? *Actually don’t leave now, you still need to finish readinf this post* “Insert awkward joke laugh here*

Part 5: Moisturizer 

11666059_1009872405698085_5710553935793121355_n

Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer – $6 

This is my favorite part because it signifies that I’m done, but in all seriousness this makes my face so soft, smooth and glowy and it sits perfectly underneath my makeup, I love this and I definitely recommend it.

Well guys thats it, What your favorite part of your beauty routine?

Once again thank you so much for reading

Saturday Internship Update

mayuuk 4-0151maayuk-0180maayuk-0194

 

Hey guys, I officially started my internship this week in a small marketing/advertising firm and its been tremendous. I’ve been working with the owner very closely I feel so lucky to have this opportunity  such a young age of 18. Now this is no joke, I’ve been working by butt of this past week going in at 9am sometimes 8am and coming back at 7pm maybe even staying late till 8pm. Its definetly given me a whole new prospective of starting and launching your own company and just how much work goes into. Now my job is to manage all the other interns in getting all the products in the online store on time. That is intimidating because all these interns are in their last last year year of college and I’m only a freshman and they don’t take me seriously which is when i have to really put my put down and tell them that this isnt about pride but about making the boss happy which is why they have to listen and follow my orders cause i get the blame if things don’t go right. But all in all I’m having fun doing this and if i do things right I might have a spot in the company. I wouldn’t trade this experience for nothing.

So my advice would be to definetly get an internship as early on in college as you can and work your butt of as if your life depended on it. I’m only in my first week so wish my luck you’ll.

What was your first internship like? Or what would you like your first internship to be?
