    Doing Y’allsome Good

    Y'allsome Tee

    Hello!!! We have finally fixed the newsletter issue! So if you’re a subscriber, this is your first email from Peppered In Style’s newsletter in over a month. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience and leaving you hanging for so long. A lot of you reached out wondering what was going on and the issue was with the RSS Feed not working properly. It’s 100% fixed now, so let’s get to this post!

    For those who’ve been following me for a while, y’all know that I love companies that stand behind helping others. Y’allsome does just that! Y’allsome was started by Craig and Megan, a couple that grew up in the South. They sell T-shirts, caps and accessories with Southern inspired graphics and quotes. 10% of the profits got to help Southern foster kids find permanent homes. Now that’s doing y’allsome good!

    Must Have Hair Tools

    T3 Micro Hair Tools

    Happy Friday!!!! First, I want to start off by saying that it was brought to my attention that my posts had not been going out to my beautiful subscribers for about a month. I sincerely apologize you missed these posts, there was a technical issue with my account on MailChimp, but the issue has been resolved! UPDATE: Issue not resolved. But I’m working really hard to fix it.

    Now, let me tell you a little story about my hair tools. I’ve had my trusty hair dryer (not pictured) for 20 years!!! Yes, you read that right, 20. My mom and I bought it when Read more…

    Clarins Lotus Oil for Combination to Oily Skin + Giveaway

    Clarins Lotus Oil for Combination to Oily Skin

    Happy Monday, loves!! Now, I know you may be asking yourself why I’m writing about a skincare product for oily skin when I repeatedly talk about my dry skin and products for dry skin. Hear me out, there are a couple of reasons why I picked this particular item.

    This Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil is specifically formulated to balance and purify combination to oily skin by helping to control sebum production with the essential oils of rosemary and geranium. The lotus extract help refine skin, leaving it super soft and supple.

    Some oils (not all) targeted for dry skin actually tend to leave my skin a bit oily, mostly because they’re not easily absorbed. This makes it a little hard to apply makeup. So I figured that if I tried the Lotus oil which is targeted for combination to oily skin, and helps balance the oil production, I might still get some benefits out of it without it actually drying my skin. And guess what, I was right!! My skin feels super soft and perfectly hydrated. Plus, it smells amazing!

    This oil is lightweight and absorbs easily to tighten pores and also brightens the complexion. Clarins does have a Blue Orquid oil formulated for dry skin, which I still wan to try, and the Santal face oil treatment for dry and irritated skin. All of the oils are made with 100% pure plant extracts with a combination of essential aromatic oils and natural hazelnut oil. They contain no preservatives or synthetic fragrances.

    This all being said, the second reason why I am talking about this oil for combination to oily skin is because I know that not all of my dear readers have dry skin, and I wanted to test out a product for those with more oily skin and give them my honest opinion that may help clarify the mentality that using an oil on oily skin is a big no no. Try this face oil treatment out if you have oily prone skin, you just never know!

    Healthy Skin with Cetaphil

    I feel I sound like a broken record when I say I have dry skin. It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, it’s always dry, and it’s sometimes worse than others. So, I need all the hydration I can use to keep my skin healthy, without a heavy or oily feeling. Thankfully, Cetaphil® has the best products that are super hydrating yet gentle on my skin.

    I have been using the Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser off and on since it was recommended by my dermatologist in high school. I like how gentle it is while still getting deep down and cleansing my skin without stripping it. Today, I use it together with the Cetaphil® Daily Hydrating Lotion and Cetaphil® Rich Hydrating Night Cream, especially when I need that extra hydration boost. But what I like about the combination of the three most is that my skin doesn’t feel clogged, despite the fact that my skin seems to absorb the nourishing moisture like a sponge. I don’t have to worry about the products just sitting on the surface and being wasted on my pillowcase at night. Read more…
