What does a serum REALLY do? That is the question. I don’t know about you guys but when it comes to my everyday skincare routine, I don’t want to be stressed out about it! I try to keep it as simple and effective as possible. I plan on doing a full skincare routine post soon but in the mean time I wanted to break down the facts about serums.

What is a serum?

A serum is a skincare product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but BEFORE moisturizing with the intent of delivering powerful ingredients directly into the …

Now let’s talk about some of these products and their benefits, shall we?

Daily Musts

First up, my everyday cleanser and moisturizers. I’ve been using Sunday Riley ceramic clay cleanser since December 2015 and my skin always feels so clean afterwards. …

Can I get a oh yes girrrl?

Simple Skincare: Micellar Cleansing Water (Review)

Beauty Reviews Skincare | March 20, 2015

With all the traveling I’ve been doing lately, I’m starting to notice the toll it’s taken on my skin. The airplane always dries out my face and I hate it! I decided to test the waters (pun intended!) by giving Simple’s new Micellar Cleansing Water a try and to hopefully re-hydrate my skin.

I had to do a little research before incorporating this product into my skincare regimen because a lot of ingredients out there can affect my sensitive skin. My biggest fear is breaking out after trying a new product. It’s the worst! However all formulations for Simple Skincare …

Skin Deep with Olay Fresh Effects (Video)

Beauty Reviews Routines Skincare | December 7, 2014

I’m excited to share with you guys these two videos I shot with Olay Fresh Effects a couple months back.  I have gone through a mountain of skin care products in my life during different stages. In high school I would get really annoying breakouts on my cheeks and forehead. I hated it! Since then, I’ve always found it helpful to refresh my skin care cabinet by adding new products into the mix as my skin sort of evolves and changes over time. Fun story – I actually used Olay products a lot when I was in high-school because it …

Tip From Sazan


If you're battling breakouts, pay close attention to your lifestyle. Sometimes that means simply making sure you're changing your pillow cases out every 2-3 weeks. Pillowcases house all the dirt and oil from your skin while you sleep which can cause breakouts when you wake up in the morning.

la prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection

Beauty Reviews Skincare | February 24, 2014

Happy Monday! Today I’m getting up close and personal with you (in my bathroom!) as I share my experience with la prairie’s new collection which includes an age-defying, hydrating cream and light, nourishing dry oil. Before I get into that experience, I’ve got to say that I’ve truly been obsessed with this swiss brand for years after my mom introduced me to their ‘skin caviar’ eye cream (a-mazing). I owe it to her for setting a healthy example and showing me ways to take better care of my skin. I’m 24 and I can’t go to bed without putting on …
