NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm??
Aug. 28, 2019Leave a comment
I purchased NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm about 1 year ago. It looks like the BB Cream is still good for use. It doesn’t have a smell or feel tacky. I decided to give it a go again. Why?? As I was using my elf Flawless Finish Foundation without a primer, the foundation looked dry and accentuated fine lines and wrinkles on my skin. I could see patches of my skin care products (that I applied to my skin, that I let soak in) balling up. That simply means the skin care + foundation was rolling off of my face! Devastating! :'(
I realized I still have a BB Cream sitting around untouched. Lo and behold, NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm to the rescue! For some odd reason, it worked this time. I didn’t use it as a BB Cream. I used it as a makeup primer only. The tint to this BB Cream was completely useless. It doesn’t cover anything on the skin, but I didn’t care. I wanted to see if it worked as a primer or not with my new foundation — elf Flawless Finish Foundation.
What I did was follow my morning regimen, let my skin care products soak into my skin, apply NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm, then apply my elf Flawless Finish Foundation. IT WORKED. The foundation looked smooth, natural, and matte. I’ve been doing this for three days straight to see if my skin will react negatively or not. So far, no breakouts and no signs of irritation. My skin looks good. My makeup looks flawless! I love how my makeup looks sooo natural. With the elf Flawless Finish Foundation, the NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm worked.
I’m glad I gave NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm a second chance. I will continue to use it as my primer if it doesn’t break me out. Have you used NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm before? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts!

Review: Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars
Aug. 20, 2019Leave a comment
Here’s my review on Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars. You know, I’m glad I gave these protein bars a second chance. This time, I really liked them. I was eating Clif Bars before this. I love Clif Bars, but it contains a lot of sugar. They’re awesome as a pre or post-workout snack though. I’ve read many reviews saying that Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars are very sweet. They’re actually not compared to Clif Bars. I noticed a decrease in sweetness when I switched over. Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars are a little bit more grainy. It’s something I’ve gotten used to by now. At first, it was weird, lol. They’re not that bad at all. Taste-wise, my ranking of the flavors (ones that I purchased) are…
- Cookie Dough
- Peanut Butter
S’mores was the sweetest out of the bunch, which is funny because it has 1 more gram of sugar compared to Cookie Dough (not a significant amount anyways, just mentioning it). Overall, I like these protein bars. 140 calories per bar with 10 grams of protein. It’s easier to portion control with them. I felt more satisfied and full when I eat these. With the Clif Bars, meh. It felt more like a candy bar with protein due to the high sugar. I would buy Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Bars again. I’m really happy with them this time around. I wish they would produce more flavors. It gets really boring when I only have four flavors to choose from.
