March Madness: 1 of 31. Thank You Heidi.

Uh barely mek it!

We're hoping *fingers crossed* to blog every day in March. Every. Single. Day. Bloggers know that is no cakewalk but hey, what's life without a challenge. There are a lot of topics I could have started with but this has been on my mind.

When my interest in cosmetics went into overdrive, I spoke to other makeup artists about their social media presence etc. If you didn't know I'm the Co-Founder of Interlace Inc. One of my roles in the Company is a Social Media Content Manager. Heidi is the only person that took my advice but she back raised me with a, "so you gine do it?" I could laugh now, but being a Product Analyst for Moden Makeup is certainly not what I envisioned when I first spoke to her about increasing her online reach.

Anyho, the rest is history. My thirst for information and specific love for product knowledge regarding what's best for our climate and skin tones has birthed this partnership that literally took me by surprise. Six or so years ago I was that girl at a M.A.C collection launch buying everything I thought looked pretty. Having little to no clue how to use it and worst, getting it home and wondering where my money went. I never want you to be that person.

Heidi gave me an opportunity that people I knew longer than her did not. She challenged me to 'put up or shut up' and it has been my aim to show her that I take her vouch of faith seriously. I know what it's like to build a brand, your baby, and take a risk to let people in. Entrepreneurship can be a lonely road if no one sees your vision and potential to manifest it. Being a part of Team Moden has broadened my knowledge of brands, products and people. My copious amounts of time watching YouTube reviews, hauls, and favourites videos will not go in vain. Honestly, I find watching those things more relaxing now than anything else. More importantly, the amount of time (and money) I have invested in testing products on myself and some friends (tee hee) will not go in vain. Moden has some big plans for 2014 and beyond; focused on bringing you the best information and services so you can make an informed decision.

So, I just had to tell Heidi for the millionth time, thank you. Your family welcomed me like they help raise me. LOL. And Anderson, well we sharing him forever!

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.

There's only one item here that surprised me...but let me not get ahead of myself.
Y'all know exfoliators are a must in my skin and body care routine so the Bath & Body Works 'Lavender & Sandalwood' Clay Body Scrub and Coco Shea 'Coconut' Richly Nourishing Body Buff (thanks to the Mistress!) should come as no real shocker. Both smell amazing; again no shocker since regular readers know I'm a firm aromatherapy believer.
