HydroPeptide's LUMAPRO-C Brightening Pigment Corrector Serum Review

If you've been reading Love. Life. Beauty. for more than a few weeks you would know that I'm serum obsessed.  Way too serum obsessed to be exact.  I feel that it's the backbone to my skincare routine after I prep with a great cleanser. PS, I just did a post on my Top 5 Cleansers, you can check it out here!

I jump at the chance to try any new serum, so I was super excited when HydroPeptide's
LUMAPRO-C Brightening Pigment Corrector Serum showed up to my door about a month ago.  I did some research on this product before testing it out and I was shocked to see that it retails for $148.  Needless to say, I had very high hopes for this product and what it would deliver.

Top 5 Cleansers for Combination / Oily Skin

A great cleanser is the foundation for #skingoals.  I'm a huge believer in toners and serums, but honestly, they can't get the job done unless your skin is prepped by a great cleanser.  I've used tons of cleansers over the years ranging from drugstore to high end, all targeted toward my skin type, combination to oily. 

Today, I'm sharing my Top 5 Cleansers, in 5 sentences or less, for skin types just like mine...sometimes oily, sometimes more combination.  I take my skincare routine seriously, and as I said above, I know that both in the morning and evening my cleanser is prepping my skin for the rest of my routine.

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème & Setting Powder

Wearing a great concealer is probably one of the most important parts of my makeup routine.  I need it to polish a barely there makeup routine just as much as I need it to help perfect a full glam look.  I have a small list of go to concealers, but I'm always looking to try new ones.   I was super excited when I was sent the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer, with the Edge Concealer Brush.  & I am so happy I was able to give this, and the Setting Powder with Precision Powder Brush, a try!

To be honest, I'm not sure I would've picked up the concealer in Sephora on my own, but using this product, along with the Setting Powder, for a few months now, has really gotten me more interested in the Kat Von D brand.  I love the packaging of both these products, the brushes have a rock and roll look to them, and the black packaging of the concealer and setting powder have a very Kat Von D vibe to them.

Recipe Wednesday: Current Need to Make Dish List

I feel like February came and went so quickly, it's been insane!  Life is been so busy lately...work has been stressful, I haven't been cooking & blogging as much as I would like.  Since March is right around the corner, and can be so long and drab, I wanted to get together a list of new recipes to try out.  I think this list is pretty decent, all of these recipes give me room to add in my own elements, they're great starting points for me, and look so delicious.

Baked Tilapia with Garlic Breadcrumbs by Cooktoria 
Tilapia is basically my favorite fish, it's so easy to cook & you can always switch up how you serve it.  I usually just make a sauce to accompany it, but I'm liking the sound of garlic breadcrumbs.  I'll def be making this in the near future.
