Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I know you’re probably overwhelmed with all the Thanksgiving themed posts today, so I just wanted to come on here with a skin care tip. :-)

If you have sensitive skin and you’re looking for something that removes dirt, oils, makeup etc without leaving your face feeling dry or irritated, I found it for you! It’s called the Gentle Aloe Facial Cleanser and it’s by Key West Aloe. I was sent a sample of it by Beautystat. Even though I’m not looking for a new cleanser right now, I still wanted to try it. :-)
This cleanser contains 30% Aloe Vera, which is a VERY high amount. I’ve heard so many great things about Aloe. Aloe Vera is very nourishing, moisturizing and it enhances the performance of other skin care ingredients. My parents speak highly of aloe as well. They used fresh aloe vera for their skin and hair when they were younger, because they didn’t have access to store-bought beauty products. Naturally, I was curious to try this product to see if I liked it!

I got to listen to Mary J Blige’s new album before it comes out! How cool is that? In case you’ve been living under rock: Mary J Blige has a track record of 8 multi-platinum albums, 9 Grammy Awards (plus 31 nominations), a 2012 Golden Globe nomination and 4 American Music Awards. She’s sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. Mary J Blige is a global superstar! Her highly anticipated album The London Sessions will be released on December 2. I got a chance to listen to it before it releases, which is pretty awesome! Below are my thoughts.


Mary J Blige‘s The London Sessions will be available Dec 2


I’ve been listening to Mary J Blige’s music since I was a teenager. I’ve seen her a few times live in concert and she’s just as amazing live as she is on her albums. If you’ve ever seen her perform, you know the passion she brings to her everything she does. To me she’s a queen! Remember the song Real Love? Or No More Drama? What about I Can Love You? Yes, those are all by Mary J Blige! She’s a legend.
