When I Say I am a Christian - Thursday Inspiration

As the end of Lent is today, I thought it would be more than appropriate to share one of my favorite poems. Often, some Christians make the assumption that being a Christian means you have to live perfectly, free of mistakes. When actually, it is quite the contrary. I share this to say that if you are not perfect and you are Christian, its okay! I am not perfect either. I am not free of mistakes. I do not walk the perfect path. None of us do! Hope this inspires you to walk in your own truth. Only you, God and Jesus Christ knows your truth!

Product Review | Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil

I wanted to share a product with you today that has quickly become one of my favorite facial oils of all time. I originally tried the product with two generous size samples before deciding to take the plunge and purchase it. After all, I had already tried Seasame Oil with Vitamin E, Almond Oil, Tarte Maracuja Oil and the Josie Maran Oil. I was not certain this oil would yield me a better result than the others had! 

Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil, 1.7 oz, $50

Well, I was wrong. This oil challenges everything that I thought I had previously known about facial oils. As I continue to age gracefully, my skin on a daily basis seems to change. It is still for the most part combination/oily. However, on rare occasion, I experience some dryness. This product has been able to cater to my combination/oily skin, as well as my occasional dry patches. It is packed with a blend of pure oils that makes my skin feel moisturized and supple.The formula is more lightweight than any of the other oils I mentioned above. Once it is applied to the skin, it doesn't leave an oily residue behind...as it is absorbed into the skin almost immediately. I normally will apply in the morning right after I have washed my face and at night just before bed. Every other night, I use the Kiehl's Since 1851 'Midnight Recovery Concentrate' Elixir. These two products have made all the difference in my skin and I am happy that I finally found something that works without breaking me out. As summer approaches, I know I will have to make slight changes to this routine...however, it is working amazing as of right now. Did I almost forget to mention that this facial oil is clear of all the junk? No parabens, sulfates, etc. 

Do you believe in the facial oil craze? As my husband says, I have a million products that are oils...from tea tree oil to coconut oil to argan oil. I am a huge fan! 

I have quite a few other skincare products that have been life changing! Let me know in the comments whether you would like me to share those products in a video or include a product review on my blog.
