Happy Friday Everyone!
It’s no surprise I adore jewelry. I don’t think I’ve ever left the house without jewelry, with the exception of hitting the gym of course. I believe jewelry can really make or break an outfit and add the extra level of polish and shine! Jewelry can be very expensive, so when my interest was peaked when Rocksbox reached out to me.
Rocksbox members get to borrow jewelry before they decide whether they want to buy it or not. Designers include House of Harlow, Gorjana, Loren Hope and many more! If you don’t like a piece, you can swap it at any time. If you love a piece and can’t live without it, you can purchase it.
The first three pieces I received were a gold spike necklace, blue drop earrings and a rose gold bangle. I absolutely love the necklace and am debating on whether or not to keep it! The earrings are beautiful, but give off too much of a special-occasion vibe for me to keep. The bangle, while so creative, I could probably live without since I don’t wear too much wrist candy on a daily basis. That’s the great thing about Rocksbox, you get to actually see if the pieces fit well into your life!
If you’d like to try Rocksbox, they graciously offered a code for my readers to get one month’s free of jewelry! All you have to do is enter the code: colorandchicxoxo at checkout!
As a reporter and former pageant girl I constantly get asked about what I use to take off my makeup. I wear a lot more than the average person since it’s called for in my profession, but it doesn’t mean if you wear less you should skimp on makeup removers! For years, I’ve used the Shu Uemura cleansing oils, but it can get expensive and the bottle is awfully hard to travel with. When my best friend traveled to France this summer, I jumped on the opportunity at having her bring home a bottle of Bioderma for me.
This is by far the most gentle makeup remover I have ever used. The cleansing oils can sometimes leave my eyes feeling foggy, but Bioderma does no such thing, even with contacts on! It effectively removed a day’s worth of makeup, dirt and whatever grime I’ve managed to accumulate while out on a story.
I soak about 70 percent of a piece of the Shiseido Facial Cotton, you can use whatever cotton you like, and then gently place it on my eye. I like to do both at the same time and delicately rub my eye area for 30 seconds to a minute, depending on how much time I have or how much I want to unwind. Afterward, a little swipe takes off everything, gel eye liner, eyeshadow, mascara, all of it! Then I use the same cotton and wipe off whatever products I’ve used to fill in my eyebrows. From there, it takes two more pieces of cotton to remove my face makeup and I’m left with a clean face.
Something I really enjoy about Bioderma is how soft and moisturized my skin feels afterward. It doesn’t feel tight or get chalky like with other makeup removers I’ve tried. If you’ve ever thought about trying a new makeup remover, I highly highly recommend Bioderma. Once you use it, I’m sure it’ll be hard to use anything else!

Happy Monday Y’all!
Today I wanted to talk about GLAMGLOW masks. A few months ago, I read and heard incredible reviews about these masks so I had to give them a try. I’m a big advocate of masks – they give me such a relaxing feeling and hopefully, do wonders for my skin.
The first mask I got was the SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment. The first time I applied it, I was not a huge fan of how tight and rigid my skin felt once the mask was dry. I usually like to apply these masks half an hour before I take a shower, so it’s easy to wash them off. Upon washing my face, my skin felt incredibly rejuvenated. My skin was visibly more even than before and my pores were smaller. My face has never felt more clear and clean.
After success with the mud mask, I branched out to get the THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment. I take after my Dad and have dry skin. It seems no matter how much moisturizer I put on, my skin’s thirst can never be properly quenched. I applied this before bed one night and when I woke up the next morning, I could not believe how much softer my skin was. It was firm, plump and looked ten times better than it did the night before. I can only imagine how much of a blessing this mask will be come winter.
The last mask I purchased was the POWERMUD Dualcleanse Treatment. I bought it on a whim. I saw it in Sephora and even though I didn’t need it, I was so intrigued, I had to have it! While I do love this mask for it’s exfoliating and cleansing properties, it’s not a complete must-have mask for me. I do enjoy using it and the tropical smell is lovely. This is a gentler mask than the mud mask, so if you have sensitive skin, I’d give this one a try first. It does a great job of clearing the skin of any impurities and giving it a nice glow afterward.
Thank you so much for reading!
