Long Time No Sea & NEW Honey Girl Organics Face Sticks!

IMG_1479 2.jpgLong time no sea, my dears!! I am soooo sorry that it has been so long since my last post. I’ve been incredibly swamped with work and life changes that I have had zero time to blog or film.  In lieu, I have been posting quick video reviews on Instagram story, if you want to follow me there.  The past few months have been dedicated to months of vocal work and songwriting.  Super sadly, I wasn’t able to hit up the beach most of summer.  Waaaaaaaaa.  A girl can dream about it, though :). Speaking of the sea, Honey Girl Organics (HGO) has just come out with a new range of face sticks, developed on the island shores of Oahu, Hawaii!  They have become a staple in my daily skin routine over the last month!  Made with organic beeswax (containing over 300 micronutrients!!) and gorgeous oils, they help keep my skin nourished and moisturized.  They are compact and easy to throw in my travel and makeup bags for quick, no-time-to-spare kind of days.  The luxe gold packaging is gorge and twists up for quick, easy and smooth application.

Organic & loaded with powerful skin nutrients, each Honey Girl Organics face stick is uber-hydrating.  Perfect for tossing in my handbag and ❤ the luxe gold packaging!

The HGO Protect stick keeps my face protected from hot LA rays on the days that I run outside.  We are currently in the midst of October, and today is 100 degrees outside!  The Protect stick contains uncoated Non-nano Zinc Oxide to filter out uv rays and heal chapped skin.  It moisturizes & soothes my skin all day and doesn’t clog my pores like sunscreen generally does.  SWOON.  I’ve been absolutely loving the HGO Prime stick before I apply my Wet N Wild foundation.  It is the most hydrating primer I have ever used.  So hydrating, in fact, that if you wanted to skip a moisturizer and just apply the primer stick instead, you would be goooooood.  If you have dry skin like I do, definitely give it a go!

My most used of them all is the HGO H2GO stick.  Lately I have been using it at night before I apply my Honey Girl Organics Night Cream for a double dose of hydration before zzzz.  H2GO is made with organic bergamot, that helps to relax facial nerves and muscles, and organic German chamomile to help soothe the skin.  Also love to use it as a lip balm and toss it in my handbag for quick skin pick-me-ups throughout the day.  All three of these beeswax babies make getting ready an absolute breeze for just under twenty bucks per stick. If you want to check them out, head to their site and sign up to their newsletter to get 25% off of your first order! If you try them out, I would love to hear how they are working for you! Wishing everyone a bee-you-tiful week!!

Honey Girl Organics Review & Skincare Routine

Happy weekend, loves! In hot summer days, your skin might be soaking up more sun than usual. It may also mean more oil production and clogged pores. I've been keeping my skin soothed, balanced and moisturized over the past summer month with three of my new favorite products from Honey Girl Organics! The Facial Scrub, Rejuvenating Mask, & Night Cream have been the products I reach for once a week on my Sunday spa nights.

The Honey Girl Organics Facial Scrub is my new holy grail scrub. I've never found a facial scrub that leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturized after I wash it off. This scrub makes my skin feel like I could walk out of the shower and not even have to apply moisturizer! The icing on the cake? It smells like a lemonade popsicle! 🍋🍋🍋 IMG_0318.jpgMy next fave product is such a relaxing step in my skincare routine. The Honey Girl Organic Rejuvenating Mask is made with raw honey, French green clay, & Hawaiian Blue Algae. I like to slather this on my skin the night before a Monday 😉 Sleep, oh how I covet thee with my Honey Girl Organics Night Cream. This cream is rich and thick in texture, so a little goes a long way. Its essential oils and herbal, aromatherapeutic scent help me to drift away to neverneverland. When I wake, my skin feels calm and hydrated thanks to this gorgeous night cream. Loveee that there are only a select few ingredients in Honey Girl Organics' entire organic & cruelty-free skincare line. Quality ingredients over quantity, baby!IMG_0335.jpg

Hope you enjoyed my review of the latest products I've been enjoying from Honey Girl Organics. If you have tried them, I would love to hear how they are working for you! Mahalo!!! ~Kelle 🌊💖☀️🌺

The Holy Grail Foundation That Won’t Leave You Hangin! | Review & GIVEAWAYS!

Wishing everyone a glorious 4th of July weekend!! A hot summer, holiday weekend in Los Angeles mos def calls for a survive-the-holy-hotness foundation!!  My holy grail foundation in all of life (that beats out all of my drugstore & high-end foundations!!), is Wet N Wild’s Photo Focus Foundation! IMG_9986.jpg This is the foundation that I have worn for months now, in nearly every condition imaginable!!  It survives hundred degree days, 15 hour work days, workouts, ETC with ZERO touch ups.  This foundation will never leave you hangin!  I’m in the shades Soft Ivory and Soft Beige.  I sometimes like to mix the two shades depending on my skin tone in a given day, or I will use the lighter shade to highlight my skin.  Soft ivory has been my go-to concealer over the past few months as well. I like to set it with my Wet N Wild Reserve Your Cabana Powder.  When used under the eyes it brightens with a blurred, filter-free, photoshopped effect.  BUH-BYE stayed-up-working-all-night dark circles!

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation in the shade Soft Ivory has been my holy grail undereye concealer that blurs EVERYTHING.  I like to set it with my Wet N Wild Reserve Your Cabana powder.
If you are wanting a your skin-but-better foundation, with great coverage, and a blurred effect that photographs AMAZING, then Photo Focus is definitely your jam.  It photographs brilliantly in both flash and non-flash lighting sitch-a-muations.

I love that this foundation comes equipped with a spatula.  That means I can whip it onto my face in a matter of seconds and be out the door. IMG_0070.jpg

 

This foundation blends into the skin like an absolute dream.  It practically blends itself, leaving your skin looking polished and photo-ready!  IMG_9767.jpgIMG_9763 2.jpg

Nintendo & E3 Expo 2017!

It was another great time working with Nintendo at E3 for my fourth year!  My, oh, myyyyy how time flies!!!  This was the very first year that E3 became open to the public, and the Los Angeles Convention Center filled with 15,000 more people this year!  Gamers and video game enthusiasts from around the world to hit up the Nintendo booth and play in the tournaments! Always a blast hanging with the voice of Mario, Charles Martinet, anddddd Mario himself!

A small-town girl, Nintendo is a way of lifeeeee for me!!  I tried to match my makeup with my Nintendo nostalgia, and had a hard time deciding between Princess Peach eye makeup or Mario red lipstick.  So I went with Mario red.  Kat Von D’s red liquid lipstick was my go-to choice because it stays put without requiring touch-ups.  I opted for stealth mode skin with Honey Girl Organic’s moisturizer and Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation.  I wanted the Mario red lip color to be the focal point of the look, so I kept my eye look super natural with a soft brown shadow swept through the crease, and a few coats of Pacifica Dream Big mascara.

My go-to Nintendo makeup look was created with a pop of red liquid lipstick by Kat Von D and natural eyes with Pacifica Dream Big mascara!

It was such a memorable week and I miss everyone soooooooooo much already!!! Thank you so, so, so much to Nintendo & Lead Detectors for another amazing year!! Much love!!! XO ~Kelle

Honey Girl Organics Review! | Hawaiian Skincare | Organic & Cruelty-Free

Aloha, darlingggggs!!!  So excited to review some more products from one of my favorite Hawaiian skincare lines: Honey Girl Organics! They are an organic, cruelty-free & gmo-free skincare company located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. If you have been following my blog or YouTube channel for a while, you have probably seen my previous review of two of my all time favorite products by Honey Girl Organics: The Lotion Face & Body and HoneyGlo Regenerating Face Serum.  Both of these skin-soothing gems are in my skincare routine 7 days a week.

Recently, Honey Girl Organics (HGO) sent me a few more products to try out, in which I am also head over Hawaiian heels in love.  One of the most remarkable things about this line is that they include only a handful or two of natural & organic ingredients in their products.  All ingredients of which we can pronounce and don’t need to run for a dictionary for enlightenment.  This speaks even more volumes to the testament of outstanding quality and hydration power of their products, WITHOUT a ton of bizarre ingredients.

These luxurious, emollient-rich gems outshine some of my best high-end skincare products.  My fellow dry skin peeps (and those of you with sensitive skin) would definitely appreciate one of the latest products I’ve been loving by HGO: the Face & Eye Cream.  This double duo cream for face & eyes works wonders.  Oil-based, this cream handles dry skin like none other!  I like to use it for eye & facial massages before bed.  Its herbal, aromatherapeutic scent is amazingggggg and the teeniest, tiniest drop goes a longgggg way. The compact jar size is also a great 2-n-1 product for traveling and long flights that drain the moisture from our skin!

Honey Girl Organics Face & Eye Cream is the perfuect all-in-one travel product for those long flights that drain the moisture from our skin!

Before makeup application, I have been prepping my skin with the HGO Propolis, Rose, Neroli Facial Toner.  After my makeup is good-to-go I give my skin another spritz with this herbal-scented toner to lock things in.  Infused with only seven skin-calming, clearing, & refreshing ingredients, this toner is sooooooo relaxing after “a day.”  I may have to pop it in the fridge for a cool skin refreshing pick-me-up in hot L.A. summer days  🙂

Honey Girl Organics Propolis, Rose, Neroli Facial Toner is my daily before/after makeup skin refresher!

The last product in my video review is the Honey Girl Organics Facial Cleanser & Makeup Remover.  It is a gentle, oil-based cleanser for dry and/or sensitive skin.  I like to use it for stubborn waterproof eyeliner & lipsticks.  When I use it to remove lipstick, I take a cotton pad to apply the cleanser.  Then I gently swipe away the lipstick with the cleanser, and after I’m done my lips feel exfoliated and as if they have a light, soothing layer of lip balm.  This cleanser is sooooo hydrating.  Love it!!!

Each Honey Girl Organics product is handmade to ensure quality of each product.  So be sure to give each product a slight shake to ensure they are mixed together before each use.  Hope you guys enjoyed my review!  Many thanks to Honey Girl Organics for nurturing my skin!!!! Much love & MAHALO!! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
