The product groupie

It is no big secret there is a particular line of products I use for my face and body cleansing.  I even use their lotion and sunscreens.  Not only do I enjoy it, but any dermatologist I've ever seen has recommended their products.  I am a Neutrogena girl all the way!!!  I'm just really happy my doctors told me to use a product I actually enjoy.  

I have a face cleaning regimen every morning and every night!  It changes, depending on whether or not I have had on makeup.  By the way, don't sleep in your makeup.  Just not cool!  

I know I have mentioned my love of the Neutrogena Wave Sonic, which has sadly been discontinued since 2014.  However, there is a new product I have just started to try.  I've been using it for the past two weeks and I believe it's a keeper!  

Let me introduce you to the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System.  Yes, it's a mouth full, but it is amazing.  I was thinking this was going to be very similar to the Wave and Wave Sonic, but boy was I wrong!   This is a totally different system, with new pads, and a new vibration.  

After carefully reading the packet, I decided to give it a go and use it for the recommended three times a week.  I use it during my nightly cleaning ritual three days a week.  To keep it simple, I go with Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I'm starting the third week of using this product and I am so impressed!  

As for the product itself, the cleansing pads are more defined and feel more like they are cleaning your skin.  Also, I have found the cleansing pads come off a lot easier, without snatching the head of the machine off.  

It took me the first week to get used to it, but I am there!  The Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System is so amazing.  Due to the stronger vibration, your skin will get a deeper cleaning than before.  Also, this machine is a lot easier to hold when you are in the shower.  

I have to admit, when I first started using this product, I really missed my wave.  However, three weeks in, I am so happy I spent the extra money to purchase this product.  Yes, it is more expensive, but my skin is absolutely worth it.  Yours is too!  

This next product from Neutrogena had changed my life.  Yes, it's that serious.  I was highly skeptical to use this product, honestly because of the name, but it is another item I am very happy I purchased.  

Here is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel.  Ok, like I said, I was skeptical to buy this product because of the name water gel.  I mean, I use water every single day to clean my body, so I was really expecting a water like material with a drop of gel.  Basically, I was expecting to waste my money.  Again, so wrong!  Not only is this product great, it goes a long way!  To cover my face and neck, I only have to put a small amount on the tips of my fingers.  I'm curious to see how long this product is going to last.  

My favorite thing about the Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel?  It feels so amazing on my skin.  Honestly, it feels like I'm not putting anything extra on at all.  I know you hear this so many times, but I could tell a difference in my skin the same day!  Nope, not getting paid for this endorsement.  Just a real person telling you about her real experience with this product.

Again, this product was a little bit more expensive, but absolutely worth it.  However, as previously stated, just a little bit goes a long way.  If you dip your entire hand in the jar to get some out (which it probably won't fit anyway), you will have too much!  

I wanted to show you this photo to the right so you could see exactly how much product you were getting.  In other words, don't be fooled by the packaging!  However, I promise you, this will go a long way, depending on how much you use at one time.  

I use this this product daily after my morning shower.  My skin is smooth all day long, even after being outside in the elements.  I do believe Neutrogena has another success on their hands!

Well, these are the two newest additions to my Neutrogena collection.  I'm sure when they come out with something new, I'll give it a try.  I have found the products that work for me!  They keep my skin looking great and when you look great and that is really important to me.  Thank you, Neutrogena, for your wonderful products!

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
