Future is Female

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

As you guys know, I am lucky enough to be an OLLY ambassador this year! This means, I get to try new products & be one of the first people to share them (+ my experience) with YOU!  

They just launched their new OLLY Future is Female product line & I was beyond thrilled to receive these products in the mail because I feel like so many of us could benefit from these. Guys, Miss Mellow was calling to me! If you have followed along for a while, you know that I have been consistently struggling with hormonal fluctuations since I had my boys & I have been searching for a product like this for years. If you have experienced the ups & downs that come along with unexpected hormonal fluctuations, then you know exactly what I’m referring to & how hard it can be to handle. I’m so happy to tell you that I feel so much more in control of my moods since using Miss Mellow + I feel like I’m handling my stress a lot better as well, which is a total win in my book!

I’m listing all 4 of the products below with a little bit of info on each so you can get a good idea of what to expect from each product. I can’t wait to incorporate these other products into my vitamin routine. Let me know in the comments below which product you’re most excited about!

Updated Skincare Routine

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

One of my most frequently asked questions is, “What skincare products do you use!?” So here I am, sharing my updated skincare routine with you because most of these products are almost used up & I wanted to share them before I start trying new ones!

I love trying out new products & finding which ones work really well & are worth the purchase for you. I’ve been using these products for 6 months & you can hear me chat all about them in this video here!

Products Used:

-This Farmacy Cleansing Balm feels so luxurious on the skin & removes makeup like a dream. I’m ranking this up there with my holy grail Elemis Cleansing Balm!

-This Boscia Resurfacing Treatment Toner has really helped the appearance of my skin texture. I’ve actually been using this product or longer than 6 months. so it will last you a long time!

-This eye cream from Farmacy is very hydrating & really helps to brighten up the undereye! I love to use this one in the mornings to help me look more awake.

-I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this Boscia B12 Serum but man oh man, I have fallen in love with this product! It has made such a major difference with my dry skin & I can’t recommend it if you have normal, dry or dry patches that need some added hydration!

-I had this anti-aging moisturizer sitting in my skincare drawer & finally decided to give it a try.. Now I wish I would have used it earlier because it is SO GOOD! It makes my skin look healthy & gives that perfect glow!

-I have been using this face oil for almost a year now & it works so well with my skin, I look forward to using it day & night. This one is a bit more pricey ($100) but if you have the ability, I highly recommend trying this one out. It lasts a very long time & the quality of this product is incredible!

-Last but not least is this little facial roller. I wasn’t sure if these little tools made much of a difference until I started using this daily. Boy was I wrong! This facial roller has become my favorite part of my skincare routine (hello, self-care!) & I can visibly see the difference in my skin since I started using it. Not only does it help with depuffing, but it also helps my products sink deeper into the skin, promotes collagen production & in turn, helps the appearance of my fine lines. Can’t recommend this enough!

5 Edible Beauty Favorites

819 1024 Sheridan Gregory

I have raved about Edible Beauty products for over 2 years now & I’m honestly shocked that I haven’t put together a post with my favorites until now. Let me start this post off by giving you a little background on how my love for Edible Beauty began. Yes, this is a skincare love story of sorts.. But don’t worry, it will be worth the quick read because I know you will love this brand as much as I do.

I was first introduced to this clean beauty brand when they were prepping to launch in Sephora here in the US a couple of years ago. I was reached out to via email to work with them on a social post promoting their US launch & I was instantly intrigued by their story, clean products & their beautiful Australian aesthetic. (Keep in mind, this post is in no way sponsored!)

Now, since I always try out products before promoting them (ALWAYS!), they were kind enough to send me over a package full of their products & when I say that I instantly fell in love with their products, I’m not exaggerating whatsoever! I have repurchased their products repeatedly & recommend them to everyone I know. So without further ado, here are the products I have repurchased but keep in mind, every product I have tried from Edible Beauty has been absolutely incredible!

Snowflower Illuminating Face Oil

This oil is a holy grail skincare product for me. I have tried quite a few oils over the years & this is the first one that doesn’t make my skin break out. This leaves my skin looking luminous, hydrated & even helps lessen the appearance of my fine lines.

& Sleeping Beauty Purifying Mousse

This pink-clay sleep mask is a must have for every skin type! It purifies, brightens, revitalizes your skin & you will wake up in the morning with any blemishes diminished & radiant skin. Honestly, I can’t recommend this enough for anyone who has acne or just gets an occasional spot, it works wonders!

Turmeric Beauty Latte

This product is perfect if you’re experiencing any dark spots or blemishes. I use this morning & night to help combat my melasma & any dark spots that I have from old spots. I 100% notice a difference when I use this product regularly & love that it’s not a harsh chemical bleaching my skin because it’s a completely natural product!

Coco Bliss Intensive Repair

If you have dry skin or are experiencing dry skin due to weather changes or different circumstances, this product is for you! I use it as a moisturizer because I have extremely dry skin but you can use this as a sleep mask for added hydration. I noticed the biggest difference in the texture of my skin when I started using this product!

Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum

This serum is beyond incredible! Just look at all of those 5 star reviews! This youth-boosting serum is a must have in my opinion. It minimizes fine lines & wrinkles leaving your skin looking plum & smooth. This is the product that I have repurchased the most from Edible Beauty & if you try it you’ll understand why!

I hope this post was helpful for all of you looking to try out Edible Beauty products. I genuinely can’t recommend this brand enough & know all of you will love it as much as I do. Feel free to send any other questions you have about this brand my way & I will be more than happy to chat skincare with you!

I’ve had quite a few requests recently for a mini tutorial on how I fill in my eyebrows and while I personally don’t feel like my eyebrows are anything to write home about, I will always happily oblige these types of requests 🙂 Real talk though.. These products are awesome! Affordable makeup brands have taken the eyebrow game by storm & I am here for it!

You can check out the mini tutorial HERE & the products that I used are below. Hope you enjoy! Let me know what mini tutorial you want to see next!

Nordstrom Sale Must Haves

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

While a lot of us are being very conscious of our spending at the moment, I wanted to share this sale BUT only share the things that I use regularly. 25% off is a major deal for Nordstrom & I didn’t want any of you to miss out on anything that you’ve been wanting to order. For example, I desperately needed a new moisturizer & so I ordered one that I absolutely love & saved 25% off on it! If you’re not in the position to be shopping right now, please don’t. Like I said above, I only purchased a moisturizer because I was completely finished with my current one & genuinely needed one.

Sending love to all of you! I know this is a weird time in life & I hope you know that we’re all in this together. If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here for you girls!

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

I am absolutely THRILLED to be announcing that I am a brand ambassador for OLLY for 2020!! Honestly, this is such an exciting opportunity for me because as you all know by now, I am a massive fan of OLLY products & use them regularly. I am honored that they wanted to partner with me for the full year & am already so excited to share my current favorite OLLY products, new releases & fun content surrounding the brand in general. If you are new to the brand, you can see all of my current favorite products below (as well as my boys favorites) & see which one’s peak your interest!

OLLY Collagen

With all of that said, I am beyond excited to share new OLLY launches with you throughout the year & the first one I get to share is their Collagen Gummy Rings. When I found out that they were releasing these, I did a little happy dance! I am all about taking collagen supplements & these peach gummy rings taste incredible! Seriously though, these gummy rings help reduce fine lines (Hello! Who doesn’t want that!?) AND help boost skin resilience. So basically, anyone who is looking to help give their skin a bit of a boost, definitely try these, you won’t be disappointed!

I’m really looking forward to sharing more with you throughout the year & if you haven’t already, check out some of my favorite OLLY products below!

4 Face Masks I’m Loving Lately

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

One of my favorite things to chat with you guys about is skincare & when I discover new products that I fall in love with, I can’t wait to share them with you all! I have been a fan of the brand, Swisse Wellness, for a couple of years now & have gone through quite a few bottles of their supplements (if you haven’t tried them yet, I highly recommend checking them out!) but they recently released a line of face masks & I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them! They have 4 Australian clay masks that are all absolutely wonderful; Matcha Tea Clarifying Clay Mask, Cranberry Pore Perfecting Clay Mask, Blood Orange Brightening Clay Mask & Manuka Honey Cleansing Clay Mask. I have been using the Matcha Tea mask a lot recently because I find that it really helps my skin when it is looking dull & brings that healthy glow back into it! I’m going to break down the benefits of each mask below for you guys below & would love for you to let me know in the comments which one sounds ideal for your skincare needs!

Matcha Tea Clarifying Clay Mask

5 Things I’m Loving This Week | #1

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

This summer I have discovered so many different products that I can’t get enough of & I figured it was time to get back into sharing my favorites with you all. This series will be a quick read & will feature the products I’m loving every week with a brief description of the product & why I love them. Sounds simple? Well, quite frankly it is! But like I said, I have discovered so many great products & feel like this is the easiest way for me to put them in one place for you all to find. So with all of that said, below are this week’s favorite products!

1.) Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette

I spoke about this palette on my Instagram stories recently but in case you missed those, I have put this palette in my all-time favorites category. I personally think this is the perfect palette & if I could only use one palette forever, this would be the one. I know, that’s a bold statement but the color range includes every color you could possibly ever need to create a million different eye looks. If you haven’t seen this one yet, you need to check it out!

2.) Ultimate Blending Brush

This is another thing I spoke about on my stories recently (if you’re not following along yet, head on over for all of the fun!) but it’s just too good to not share on here with you all. This brush has a  $6 price tag & works wonders! Seriously, it blends like a dream & you won’t be disappointed. It’s great for foundation but I have recently started using it with my bronzer/blush & it blends them out flawlessly. I can’t recommend this one enough!

3.) Essential Lip Enhancer Shine Balm

This formula is absolutely unreal. I personally feel like Jouer can do no wrong but they 100% smashed this one out of the park! I have incredibly dry lips & so I knew these would be right up my alley. What I didn’t realize was how buttery soft they would leave my lips & how beautiful every shade in the range would be. I posted a video swatching these on my IGTV for any of you interested in seeing the colors in action!

4.) Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil

I have used this product on and off for years now & I recently started using it again because my skin aged rapidly this summer. Sounds slightly dramatic, I know, but the wrinkles on my forehead & in between my brows became terribly noticeable & I didn’t love that. This makes such a huge difference in my fine lines & if you know me in real life, I can guarantee I’ve recommended it to you because I feel that strongly about it. Moral of the story, if you want to diminish the appearance of fine lines, this one is for you. The price tag is a bit steeper on this one ($105 for a full bottle/ $55 for a mini) BUT a little goes a long way AND it’s much more affordable than botox, just sayin!

5.) & Sleeping Beauty Purifying Mousse

Apparently I just didn’t take very good care of my skin this summer because this on has been a necessity as of late as well. Hey, you win some, you lose some! I’m happy that I have found incredible skincare products that save my skin when it’s looking a little drab. I have been applying this mousse a few times a week at night to help clear & brighten up my skin. I absolutely love how healthy my skin looks when I wake up in the morning & can’t recommend this enough if you have texture & dullness.

Those are the 5 products I’m loving this week & I hope you guys have enjoyed this post. Stay tuned for next week & make sure to comment below with 1 product you guys have been loving so we can share the love. Thanks for reading!
