    First Impression: withSimplicity All-Natural Face Masks

    Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving three brand new, withSimplicity toxin-free face masks that will be launching today. Now, there’s nothing I love more than discovering new and exciting clean beauty and skincare brands, so I jumped at the chance to treat myself to a little masking ‘me time’ over the past few days. My disclaimer, as always, is that I personally have dry, dehydrated skin that lately has been going through an oily/acne-prone patch. I have only tried each product once and cannot comment on any long term benefits/issues, but will provide you all with my honest, first impression. withSimplicity‘s mask launch #wsmaskerade includes five toxin-free, natural, organic,…

    The Double Cleanse

    Double cleansing for makeup removal/skin cleansing is a pretty popular concept. In fact, I think I was probably doing this technique before I even know it had a name. First it was makeup wipe + cleanser, then cleansing balm + cleanser and now…well, I’m so happy to share the latest and greatest clean combo.

However, things didn’t quite work out that way (clearly 😛 ) Between finishing up products (yay!), the change of seasons, and trying to break bad habits (makeup wipes!!), my PM routine was in some sort of limbo. I didn’t want to share my process without having a consistent one for at least 6 weeks, and I’m happy to report, three months later, I got one! Products may change here and there, but the steps remain the same. For the sake of time and filming, I only included my current routine…

    Beauty Closet Declutter

    If you are like me and derive pure satisfaction out of seeing organized spaces, stay tuned, you’re in for a treat! The Kondo-madness continues in the Bitta household and my latest conquest was the Beauty Closet. Before I shared this area on Instagram, I had no clue what to call this space in my Master Bathroom…Linen Closet/Toiletries Closet. Thanks to you guys, my #BittaFabFam, it’s the Beauty Closet now! This space was always awkward for me, I wasn’t sure how to arrange and display all of the skincare, haircare, and beauty accessories that I keep accumulating (it’s a problem, I know!). The worst is when I go out specifically to…
