Happy Friday! I hope all of you have exciting plans for the weekend. If you do not, feel free to hang around the blog all weekend leaving comments, I would love to make it more interactive. If you have any suggestions for making the blog more interactive please let me know, I would really appreciate it!
Now, let’s get to today’s two part post: empties and favorites!
I’ve been tagged! Thanks for my best friend Jennifer (The Wired Enthusiast) I’ve been tagged (tasked?) to do this Rainbow Tag. Have I said tag/tagged enough? As Jenn mentioned in her post this has been especially popular on YouTube but they are also gaining popularity in the blogging world. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this tag, you go through your favorite products and find something for each color of the rainbow, plus something multicolored. So, let’s get to it:
Lately I have been using ‘Clean & Clear Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent for Sensitive Skin.’ I actually picked this product up by mistake. Usually, I don’t purchase products for sensitive skin. however, it was on sale and we were in a rush, so without hesitation, I threw it in the cart.
I have been using this first thing in the morning before applying any other product to my face for the day. As well, I use this after washing my face before going to bed. Periodically, I follow the nighttime application with a moisturizer, but it does not seem necessary, there has been no indication that the product is drying my skin out.
Since it is made for sensitive skin, the product is noticeably more gentle than other deep cleaning astringents I have used in the past. Compared to these products, it also has a very light smell.
This is by no means a miracle product, but it does what it is supposed to do. It is an additional step to include in your beauty routine to help prevent future break outs, and help combat current ones.
Based on my experience with this product, I will happily try more products not only for sensitive skin, but also more products from Clean & Clear in the future.

Prior to being introduced to this product I was using Jergens Natural Glow, and my favorite sunscreen was Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect SPF 15. Compared to these two products, this product by Australian Gold offers more protection and gives an instant, and longer lasting color.
Aside from using this as I would any regular sunscreen, I have also been using this on rainy or cloudy days, or on days where I am primarily indoors because it does contain a bronzer. I also plan on continuing to use it throughout the winter to help maintain a natural looking glow!
Based on the results, I am extremely happy with this product. I also like that it is fast drying, not greasy and it smells fantastic.
Initially, I was unsure as to whether or not I wanted to use SPF 30. After all, tanning is one of my favorite parts about the summer, and even without an SPF I am not one to burn easily. However, because the product contains a bronzer, I decided I would at least try the SPF 30 and looking back, I made the right decision.
If you’re looking for an SPF with bronzer, give this a try. I purchased mine from Shopper’s Drug Mart. However, it is also available on the company’s website (click here).
I am always willing to try out new lip products, and when this caught my eye in the drug store this morning while running errands, I knew that I had to try it. Less than an hour later, it has already become one of my favorite lip balms ever! What’s not to like about this? As you can see in the picture it is 100% natural and 95% organic and the packaging is absolutely adorable! My lips felt instantly moisturized after the first application, not to mention the lip balm smells amazing. If you’re not one to splurge on lip balm, I only paid $2.99 for this! I am eager to pick more up, so don’t be surprised if EOS Lip Balm makes another appearance in the near future.
I think it’s safe to say that Live Laugh Love is now up and running. Originally, I was planning on making my first ‘real’ post this Sunday (2 June), but I’ll be surprised if I make it to Wednesday or Thursday before posting again.
Thanks for reading and check back soon!
