When you think of Latina’s, you think sassy, fun, energetic, and confident. Dove, intrigued with Latinas beauty regimes decided to conduct a survey nationwide to see what we ranked as our most essential beauty products and not to my surprise deodorant was the one thing we could not walk out the door without, it even outranked tooth paste and foundation… among others!
Being a busy millennial ain’t easy, somedays I’m a student – other’s I’m a dental assistant and sometimes I can even be both but EVERYDAY I’m a mommy. My life is very hectic and I feel like I’m always on the go so I need a deodorant that works for me. I’ve been using the same deodorant for almost 10 years, so when I was approached to take Dove’s #EssentialUpgrade challenge I was a little skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised with their newest line of advanced care antiperspirants.
My problem has always been excessive wetness but now with their 48-hour odor and wetness protection I don’t have to worry about sweat marks on my tops and my confidence is sky high with how amazing it smells. This line offers 15 fragrances but my favorite was definitely the soothing chamomile.
Another great aspect of their Advanced Care line is that its NutriumMoisture™ formula leaves your underarms feeling soft and smooth. According to the survey, 92% of Latinas across the US prefer an antiperspirant that provides skin care benefits in addition to odor an wetness protection. To be honest, I never really realized how dark and irritated my underarms really were until I began using Dove, but now my underarms are lighter and much smoother! What’s best is that all of this goodness is jam-packed in one product! I can officially say that I will be using Dove’s Advanced Care Antiperspirant from now on.
Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant is an essential upgrade to your beauty routine, so now I challenge you to upgrade your deodorant!

Even though I already started school last week, I know so many of you are lucky enough to start either attending or teaching school this coming week//after labor day so I just wanted to share my go-to simple yet classy back to school makeup tutorial.
This usually takes me about 10 minutes in the mornings, so it’s super quick and easy! All of the products used are in the description bar on the video. As long as you lay out your makeup beforehand applying is a breeze!
I hope everyone has an amazing and successful scholastic semester//year, THUMBS UP the video and make sure to subscribe!
So you’ve learned how to contour, bake and blend like a pro. But did you know you that cleaning your makeup brushes should be an essential part of your makeup routine? Dirt, oils and bacteria left on your makeup brushes after application can cause clogged pores and pesky breakouts!
I’m the first to admit to being that lazy girl who would prefer to buy new makeup brushes then to clean the ones I already but lord knows I don’t have that capital. Today I want to share with you my quick and simple routine to keep my makeup tools at their very best for when it’s #slaytime!
I’ve seen all types of videos and crazy blog posts on how and what you should use to clean and disinfect your makeup brushes, from alcohol, to shampoo’s even olive and coconut oils – but girl I just don’t have the time or patience to sit there and make a special blend.
About a year ago I switched from a gentle body wash to the Blender Cleanser Solid and I’ve never looked back. Not only is it travel friendly, but it does and exceptional job at cleaning my brushes and sponges. Now for the ultimate combo, I began using this amazing beauty gadget called the PalMat from Sigma’s sister company Practk and it’s only $9.95 on their website! It’s the ultimate cleaning gadget, it doubles as a sink mat but you can also use it on your palm. Together these two are my power cleaning combo! Check out the results and the video on how simple it is to use!
If you couldn’t already tell, skin care is one of my favorite things to talk about. I try my best to take the best care of my skin, after all makeup is the fun part but it needs a good foundation to look flawless.
I love my masks, and scrubs but this right here is my perfect skin care combo to keep my face fresh, clear and perfectly balanced.
Drying Lotion by Mario Badescu, this right here is probably my best friend in skin care. It became super famous when Kylie Jenner posted it on her Snapchat a couple of months ago so you know it’s got the Kardashian/Jenner stamp of approval! When you feel a pimple coming on you apply a dab of this at night and in the morning *poof* its gone! It literally is magic in a bottle and best of all it’s suited for all skin types.
The Fab Pore Daily Micro Smoothing Moisture Lotion by Sopa and Glory, I’ve had this in my arsenal for a little over two months and it is by far the best moisturizer I’ve tried – high and low end. My skin is super moody sometimes, its combination and I’ve never been fully satisfied with a moisturizer until now. I usually put this moisturizer after I wash my face in the morning and it keeps my oil and dry patches in check throughout the whole day. The best part of course, is that it is budget friendly.
Rosewater Facial Spray by Mario Badescu, my favorite facial spray of life. This has been part of my makeup and skin care routine for the past two years and I still love it. You probably saw this being used in my makeup videos. It’s an all purpose spray, it helps moisturize before makeup application, it helps with shadows and pigmentation, it even helps set your makeup… but my favorite way to use this is on hot summer days when my skin needs a little hydration. I carry this around in my purse and spritz as needed!
