Zoya 'Wishes' Holiday 2014 collection

*Press sample sent for review

Today I have Zoya's new Wishes collection. They are their holiday/winter 2014 polishes. Zoya did an amazing job on these polishes. There are six in total. Half of them are PixieDust polishes and the other half is a mixture of cream and metallic polishes. Each color of polish has a "matching" PixieDust polish. This collection makes me think and feel like the holidays are right around the corner. They're kinda magical in my eyes! 
They all had great application. I have 2 coats of each polish on and NO topcoat on any of them. Check out how great the non PixieDust polishes still shined without a topcoat. I really am loving these.

Mary Kay Clear Proof acne system

So today I have the Mary Kay Clear Proof acne system that was sent to me by Influenster to review and test. I am about 2 weeks in on the system. So far so good. I haven't had any major break outs. That's always a plus right?! lol. Right out of the gate I will say that on my skin after about 2 days I did notice that this system tended to sting a little. I know it has a drying effect with the medicine that is in it. So I kinda expected that feeling. I just used a generous amount of the moisturizer to make my skin feel a little less tight and moisturized. I had a few blemishes that I am still waiting on to be completely healed and the treatment gel seems to be aiding it the healing process a bit. So overall I think, thus far, that this system is okay. It compares to my normal routine of face wash, toner, and moisturizer, pretty much on an equal playing field. I couldn't say that one was any better than the other. 
This system retails for around $45 on their website. Mary Kay usually has some good discounts you can use too. Here are some photos below of the products. 

 Step 1
Clarifying Cleansing Gel
with 2% Salicylic Acid

 Step 2
Blemish Control Toner
with 2% Salicylic Acid

 Step 3
Acne Treatment Gel
with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide

Step 4
Oil-free Moisturizer

Hope you found this helpful in your skincare needs!
