Five On Friday: Skincare and Makeup Edition

A. Liz Adventures
It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

I have so many fun skincare updates today that I thought I'd share here under the 5oF theme!

So you know I've talked a good bit about Grove Collaborative. This is the company that stocks earth-friendly household products and ships them monthly to your door. I'm am Amazon Prime NUT, so why order from a secondary company? Well, their prices are awesome (just as good or better than Amazon in many cases) and I also love supporting a company that's taking active steps toward a better, healthier planet. I became an "influencer" with them since I love what they are doing so much ... if you are a blogger and are also interested in being an influencer, shoot me an email, I'd love to connect you with them.

Buying from Grove Collaborative has also turned me on to the Acure line of skincare products. More on that below. But I did want to tell you that if you're a new customer, you can use my referral link here to get $10 off of your first order and a FREE Acure shave gel.

Okay, so what did I order from the Acure line most recently? Here's what is currently heading my way (along with some paper towels, which is necessary but admittedly not as much "fun"):

Clockwise, from top left: 
Radical Resurfacing Treatment
CGF Repair Serum
Day Cream
Night Cream (already went through a tube of this and love it)

A few of you have emailed or sent me a chat on Snapchat about eyelashes. Since I'm nursing Charlotte, a lot of the REALLY fun options are currently out (ie, Latisse, which I used years ago, or Neulash, which is on my wishlist next). But I have to give all of the credit to my fave mascara by L'Oreal -- this one. I get it in Blackest Black. It seriously plumps up my lashes like none other and is like $7-8.

I am also using my microneedle roller nightly before my Acure serum and night cream. I got mine on Zulily and it's by ORA. You can also find a ton on Amazon (click here) and I know R+F sells them. If you are an R+F rep, please feel free to leave your website in the comments below for anyone who may be looking for one. :)

Using this before skin serums is supposed to help the serum penetrate your skin better and give you a collagen boost. I'll take it!

I also have to throw this one skincare anecdote in there. Earlier in the season I posted a photo from the pool and had a few people to email me about a mole on my chest that looks pretty scary. It was a crazy time (newborn days ... or should I say newborn daze) and I did take the time to write back to some people but not all. I have had some guilt that some of you never got a response from me and I didn't want you to think that I was not appreciative of your concern and the time you took to email me. I've had that mole since I was born and I do have it checked regularly by a dermatologist ... several different derms have said "not a worry on that one." I have had a mole removed from my back -- back when I was in high school. NOW, it has been two years since my last derm appointment so I'm overdue to have it checked. But I give you my word that I will remain diligent in getting it checked out! And truly, for those of you who emailed me, thank you!

TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!
