No Hassle Facial Treatment.

What do you do to remove a great “beat face” full of make-up? Do just wash it off and call it a night? Any aftercare?

See the face below? This was a NYE’s beatface by a professional make-up artist and a simple wash wasn’t getting this make-up off. There are many expensive make-up removers, gels, and other harsh chemicals.


I use oil free facial cleanser which is the actual store brand by CVS Pharmacy. It does the trick of the actual brand by Neutrogena. It’s oil free, doesn’t dry out my face or leave it oily, it’s soft and very smooth.

After that, I applied a little bit of Witch Hazel on a cotton ball and did a quick wipe down of my face to help shrink my pores from leftover makeup. Witch Hazel is a good astringent that helps with acne breakouts without drying out the face plus it’s a good disinfectant.

Next, I applied a quarter size amount of facial moisturizer just to lock in moisture during this cold winter we are experiencing here in the midwest. Although it said for “dry skin” for added protection I made sure to get this particular one because of the brutal winter that can easily dry out your face. A cracked and dry face is never cute :-)).

A few days later I used the Mint Julep Masque which helps reduce those forever expanding pores, to get rid of black heads and to reduce pimples.

I absolutely love these products! They are affordable, they are non-name brands, they get the job done as easily as any expensive facial product or professional facial treatment.

All of these products came from CVS Pharmacy and I’ve used them for years.

Get Booted!

The Winter is here! The Winter is here! Don’t get caught up in these streets “lacking” without the proper protective foot attire.

Winter can be brutal leaving your foot wet, soggy and cold. Choosing the right boot for the winter shouldn’t be a hassle and shouldn’t cost a fortune! My favorite water proof boot of all time is the classic tall boot by Hunter. Below are some of UGE’s favorite winter boots that we wear.  Most boots are under $200 and can be found even cheaper at Nordstrom Rack. Click below on the boots for more details.
