The Starting Off Project | Round Up

the-starting-off-project-round-up

Now that The Starting Off Project has officially come to a close, I wanted to do a round up for anyone who might have skipped a week and wanted to catch up on what they had missed in one convenient place. During #theSOproject, we talked about everything from skincare to makeup tools. We learned about different types of beauty products, what it does, how to apply it, and which brands are worth buying. It was fantastic reading what other bloggers had to say and what their favorites were! While there were some products that were clear blogger favorites, there were some newly introduced gems, too. Now, without further adieu, here are ten weeks of The Starting Off Project collected in one post just for you.

Even though we're making our way into autumn now, I've been having a really hard time putting away my bright lipsticks. While most people are swapping out their bold shades for vampy berries, I keep opting for shocking statement hues. Wearing them just makes me so happy and really gives my pale skin a little oomph! One such lippy I've been wearing loads has been Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart. It's a fun, snappy hot pink perfect for fellow fair ladies like myself!

Skinetica Anti-Blemish Treatment, $9.95

Fighting acne got you down? Hate the feel of having to load up on multiple products to keep your skin in line? Today, I'm bringing you a review on a fabulous new product that helps to clear up your skin while also serving as a primer for your makeup. Skinetica has been making the rounds in the UK after becoming a smash hit in the October 2012 Glossybox. Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled when Skinetica contacted me, an American blogger, about sampling their product.

For those of you not in the know, Skinetica's Anti-Blemish Treatment* is this amazing wonder product that clears acne, cuts down on future breakouts, and doubles as a primer for your makeup application, all without harsh ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. At first I thought this was a tall order for just one product, but y'all know how much I love a good double duty item. With this in mind, I was ready to test out the claims!

Beauty How-To | Irritated Skin Rescue

Hello, beauties! Monday I posted a review of a fantastic face mask perfect for dry, sensitive skin. I explained that I'd had a reaction to a new product I'd tried, and my skin had been left red, raw, and irritated. While using the face mask was a large part of helping to get my skin back in shape in just a few short days, it was ultimately a part of a whole regimen. No matter how careful you are with your skin, there is always the chance that a crazy reaction can strike at any time. Here's my personal plan and tips for getting you through, and back to beautiful skin!

(DISCLAIMER: I'm not a medical expert, so if you have a severe reaction, or a rash or irritation that won't subside, skip this and go straight to a professional!  They'll know best how to get you right as rain.)

Aubrey Organics Calming Skin Therapy Hydrating Mask, $14.95

I don't know about y'all, but I love days where I can just indulge in a good pamper. There is nothing more relaxing than settling in with a face mask, a steaming cup of tea, and a Netflix marathon. So I was thrilled when I was approached by Aubrey Organics to trial a face mask from their sensitive skin line. I have found that over the past year or so, I've been adding more and more organic products into my beauty routine, and just recently I've began to experiment with loads of face masks in an attempt to whip my skin into shape. If you're looking for a new face mask to add to your rotation, then read on!
