Healthy Skin

I always had problems with my skin, its very sensitive. My pores are also easily plugged, even the oil-free makeup or mineral make up or anything else will with out a doubt plug my pores and my skins breaks out.

Here are some products I use to moisturize my skin and surprisingly it will not plug your skin.

A little goes a long way with this, so it will last you for months maybe longer.$7.00 


 Yes this is an oil, so most people stay away from it thinking it will make their skin worse!! But it actually will help your skin moisturize without sitting on you skin like creams do, these actually soak into your skin. I wear this or the one below after I wash my face at night and leave it on overnight. It is like an overnight treatment.



Under $10.00
At first you will be confused at this, but here is what to do. If you have acne marks or some scars or anything you want to soften off your face or even anywhere on the body, this is for you. Make sure to get the softgels not anything else because this is not to consume. It is purely for external use. HOW? Take One capsule and take scissors to open it up, just a little snip to get the vitamin e oil out of the capsule. Then take the oil and tap it on the spots you want to soften. Then lightly rub it in into your skin but not too much, then leave it overnight. After few days your skin will show results.



I know this post is a little confusing since both are the are oils and we are told to stay away from that if you have acne-prone or sensitive skin. Well I letting you to take the chance, and at these very affordable prices there's nothing to lose. Good Luck :)

My latest Obsessions.....

So lately I've been obsessed with few different things.. all different categories but still none the less still obsessed!!!!!


1. Peach Tea & Vanilla Caramel Tea. These two have me hooked lately. I love tea with passion, so much that I even worked at a Tea House when i was in College my freshman year.  Tea is a great alternative for coffee lovers but with a better benefit. When I worked at a tea house, the fruit teas were a medley of dried fruit. Its amazing if you see something like that at a store or anywhere, TRY IT!!!! Its probably the best type of tea and GOOD for you.





2. Office Space. For those unfamiliar with this. Its a movie, that's from the late 90's. My boyfriend made me watch it one night few months ago and ever since I've loved this movie. If you get to watch it even on the computer DO IT! or even youtube it to see some parts so you get the idea :)
3. My new Necklace. its made out of Abalone Shell and Sterling Silver.  I named it Abalone Bib Necklace.   You can't find this in store :) it's made by ME!!! Since i have my own personal jewelry business i make myself my own jewelry when i need something new :) But if you like it it can be requested at my website www.natasharussia.com  & for Facebook Users you can follow the page Natasha Russia Designs

Sorry for the crappy photo took it with Instagram.. so image quality is not as clear.




4. Tool Structure Tortoise Backcomber

 My sorority sisters introduced me to this few years ago, one of my girls who loves teased hair showed me this tool and how to use it. You can find it at any Sally's Beauty Supply

its seriously an amazing hair tool for the ladies that love hair volume. Best part its not a splurge, its under $2.00!! 






 Thanks for following!! :)

Maybelline Review

Today I've done two blogs, because i wanted to get this review in for you guys. I love Maybelline Makeup, to me its just great makeup for its price, i recommend it over Revlon. But this one was a shocker to me. I bought this just because i thought it might be really amazing since Maybelline does wonderful face makeup, like the 24 Hour Stay that I use as a staple. So... few days ago i saw this new line from them , the one i wanted to try right away was "Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam".... First of all, their Dream Matte Mouse is another amazing product, so of course i thought it would amaze me as well. Don't waste your time with this Nude Airfoam.. to me its pointless... you know that feeling when you put on liquid makeup but if its really runny it makes your face look like its melting... yeah this was it... the foam came out great, but as soon as i touched it to apply to my face it created this watery liquid makeup but just wasn't blending well. I instantly washed my face and used the 24 Hour Stay.

    
AVOID THIS PRODUCT


I will try it again after i figure it some tricks toward it and let you know it goes..

 I am curious about some other new Maybelline Products like their new eyeshadow... let me know what you've tried  :)

welcome to 2012.. :)

This is way late but i been sick lately, and i can not get rid of this flu. i do practically everything to stop being sick.
1.tea & honey & lemon - russian way
2. hot milk & honey- ukrainian way.
3. Flu medicine day and night- American way.

any ideas what i can do? maybe your family has neat secrets :)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, I'm really excited its a new year, because to me its simply a fresh start. I've never been a person to do
the resolutions nor i ever will be. To me any change that i encounter or want to achieve will be on my own.
But i do go through change quiet often., that feeling when you wake up one morning and have an idea that
you just want to change something.


Ex: Im a natural dark brunette, but when i came to the US all the natural sunlight gave me highlighs and brightened my hair to lighter browns. Right before I graduated high school and went to college, i was a Platinum Blonde. Yes, Blonde! it was spring last year and i woke up and wanted to be Brunette again. its been 5 years of my blonde and now i wanted to go back to be natural. thats why in current pictures my hair looks darker in the roots. Its still growing. So hence the bad roots :( but im really being patient.


From this:


To this: 







Hopefully my hair will be all grown out in its natural color by summer :)




So anyway, what have been your biggest change this year?
