HELP ME Cream by Philosophy really HELPS my skin!

So i have been hearing about this cream for quite some time but never tried it yet .It is from a company called Philosophy here is there site - . I also want to mention you can buy it at The Bay now and Sephora.  
Well i was on the market for a GOOD anti-aging product but also something that will not make me break out as i tend to be acne-prone.

This cream contains RETINOL which is an amazing ingredient in skincare! What is retinol??It is a form of Vitamin A naturally found in the body and it helps to fight wrinkles ,smooth the skin and even rid of acne.

So i put it to the test! It says to use it before your regular cream at night so i did that and started noticing a difference within a few days. My pores were looking better and my skin felt smoother.I have been using it every night for about 2 weeks now and i cannot believe i waited this long to try it.It does wonders for my skin,my breakouts are much less now,my skin looks fresh and my pores look clearer and smaller when im not wearing makeup.
I totally recommend you give this a try if you looking for something that actually gives you results.I do not have a lot of fine lines,but i hear it works great for them also,i bet its keeping mine away :)

Have you ever tried any other products from Philosophy?? Let me know!

Lash Primer -Why you need it and my top picks

Hello lovely ladies!! Today i want to talk about something i use everyday that makes a HUGE difference in my lashes and you can also use it with ANY mascara you currently have.

Its called -Lash primer and what you do is put it on before your mascara so it can make your mascara go on better,your lashes look longer and more volume. 

Here are my top 3 picks in different price ranges for all-

Clinque Lash Building Primer-This is the one i have been using lately and feel it really helps my lashes look more healthy , it contains a unique polymer combination that holds mascara to lashes for a longer, fuller look with extended wear. The moisturizing formula also helps to condition and mend dry lashes.Also it is 100% fragrance free.$14.00

Mac Prep and Prime lash-I also adore this lash primer it smoothes and conditions. Intensifies the build and lengthening quality of all formulas.It really helps mascara last longer! $18

And last but not least -Loreal Double extend tubes mascara

This one is a two step product you put on the white primer,base coat first which helps strengthen lashes .Then you apply the mascara next which really helps to lengthen the lashes using a 'tube effect". The best thing about this mascara is no eye makeup remover is needed,you just use lots of warm water to get it off!!! A must try at a great price of  -about $10.99 but it goes on sale a lot ,so look out for a deal.

So if you are not priming your lashes yet ,you really must give it a try ,you will never go back !!! Do you know of any other good lash primers??
