Blissimplicity


Sometimes, I'm guilty of over-complicating things.

I have buckets upon barrels of beauty products. Don't get me wrong - I love them! I find it nearly impossible to part with any of them. I just adore trying new products and falling head over heels for the latest and greatest. This very obsession was the reason I started a blog!

But sometimes, life gets busy and I get a little frustrated digging through a drawer of serums just looking for a basic, daily moisturizer. Those times, my beauty junkie self has to take a backseat and I need a set of old-reliables to get the job done.

Let's be honest - this is Clinique's whole premise, right? Their 3-step program of Cleanse, Exfoliate and Moisturize has been going strong for decades. I was a faithful user of their Facial Soap, Mild Clarifying Lotion and DDML (Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion) back in high school.

Not to put down Clinique at all, but my current set of "reliables" is from Bliss. I have to say I just love their whimsical approach and the latest set of multi-taskers really lets me feel that I'm able to simplify without sacrificing all the skincare benefits.

Check out this simple routine:

Created for demanding W Hotel clientele, this cleanser has it all: exfoliating beads, a nice fresh formula and can do what it's supposed to - remove makeup, oil and grime. Done.

Newsflash to me! I always think of exfoliators as these grainy, messy things. I forgot that the action of sweeping toner over your skin with a cotton round exfoliates without the mess and need to rinse. How could I forget that!? Anyway, this one is great because it's not drying and has anti-oxidants.

Lightweight enough for summer but hydrating enough for dry skin. Does it all: protects against UVA & UVB rays, illuminates skin, absorbs quickly, delivers vitamins, minerals and omegas to promote healthy skin and smells yummy.

So there you have it - for the days I need it, blissimplicity.

For the rest of the days, there are night creams, eye creams, serums, masks, balms, facial massage techniques... and the list goes on.

I was a big fan of the DDML and I remember using Clinique that three step all through the 80's. It was so simple and so pretty! But I've not tried Bliss yet. Is this a more natural skincare line?

We women have been using cosmetics for thousands of years to define our ideal of beauty but If using cosmetics helps us feel beautiful and more confidant that's a good thing. But let's make sure that we are using cosmetics that are safe and healthy for our skin. and i found Natural products are 100% chemical free made from natural herbs and are cruelty free.

Give your skin the attention it deserves as everyday our face is exposed to so many harmful chemicals in the environment. Our face needs to breathe and get its appropriate pampering once in a while. Euro facials can help us get a rosy and glowing cheek for a younger, glowing appearance.

-SAC and SEA both báo giá lịch tết finished strong after making

trades last year, and I think they both have made solid coaching changes.
-UTAH and HOU thiết kế lịch độc quyền had a zillion injuries last year,
and should be better if they can

-Golden State feels like it should be a tougher regular season team with mẫu kẹp file đẹp the Nellieball style -
that team just feels like it's in a better place after the coaching change.
-MIN added a 20-pt scorer plus a potential ROY to its backcourt thiết kế kẹp file (
though I don't entirely feel like all these parts fit - but it's hard to imagine they'll win *fewer* than last year's 33).
-And then there's New Orklahoma City, who made the most celebrated FA signing, though I'm not as high on them as others.
