My Top 10 Favorite Drugstore Facial Care Products:

My Top 10 Favorite Drugstore Facial Care Products:

1. L’Oréal Detox & Brighten Pure Clay Mask:

This supercharged clay mask will literally brighten your face after 10 minutes. I absolutely love applying it after a very long day & most of the time right in the middle of the week. I basically take it as a at home mini-spa day, and if you really wanna do the same, then you can just slice up some cucumbers & lay it on your eyes for the duration of the Clay Mask!

2. Acure Moroccan Argan Oil:

This bad boy is a definite must, it’s meant to restore the appearance of the textures & tones of your skin, and the best part of it all is that you can also use it on your hair! Talk about a 2-in-1 product!!

3. Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water:

Looking for the perfect product to remove your makeup but also mattify your skin? Look no further, this product is definitely the one you’ve been looking for! I personally like using this specific product right after using my Neutrogena Make-up Cleansing Towelettes, just to mattify my skin a bit more.

4. L’Oréal Magic Skin-beautifier BB:

This is my go-to BB cream for whenever I’m not in the mood to apply any makeup on my face, it color corrects and hydrates your skin. The cool part of it all is that once you apply it, it will literally transform from a lime green color to your perfect shade, for a bare finish look!

5. Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF 15:

Can I just say how I absolutely LOVE this product? This is my go-to Moisturizer, I literally live for it! I’ve been using this product for about 5 years now & I haven’t had the necessity of changing it, because it does exactly what its meant to do. Moisturizes & hydrates my skin, while also giving it that extra protection with its SPF 15.

6. Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser:

Cetaphil is well known for their facial & body cleansers, all of their products are created to treat all different skin types without deteriorating or ruining your actual skin. I absolutely love how gentle this specific product is and how soft it makes my skin feel after every wash!

7. Neutrogena Make-up Cleansing Towelettes:

If you’re looking for the best towelettes to remove your makeup, look no further because these are the ONES! These pre-moistened facial cleansing wipes effectively dissolve all traces of dirt or makeup. Most wipes leave heavy residue of makeup behind, which later on can take its toll on your face. Which is why I choose to spend a little more & get these bad boys, because they completely remove all of my makeup and heavy residue off of my face.

8. Neutrogena Radiance Boost Hydrogel Mask:

I love to use these whenever I get home from work feeling all tired & in need of some extra boost! It instantly quenches my dry skin, leaving it hydrated & smooth. It’s truly magical and not expensive at all, you can literally call it a spa day after work right from the comfort of your home!

9. SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

I’m all into mud masks, so this one is definitely an absolute must have. It draws out dirt, while helping absorb any excess oil & improve the appearance of troubled skin. It’s just a little extra step in helping my skin look as flawless as possible, I personally like to switch both SheaMoisture African Black Soap + L’Oréal Detox & Brighten Pure Clay Mask throughout the week, so I don’t just stick to one product.

10. Yes To Cucumbers 2-Step Single Use Eye Kit:

Have you ever had dark circles under your eyes that you can’t find a way to get rid of? We all have those every once in a while, and I’ve found that Yes To Cucumbers 2-Step Single Use Eye Kit has absolutely helped me whenever it’s too much to handle! This product contains soothing cucumbers, caffeine and fruity fruits to keep my skin calm while waving buh-bye to my dark circles! It’s a 2-step product, and step 2 is an eye treatment cream that is meant to help brighten the under eye area.


Hopefully these 10 of my faves will also become part of yours, let me know how ya’ll like them after trying them out & don’t forget that any of these products can literally be found at your nearest drugstore, while not breaking your bank account, which is definitely a plus!

XOXO, Yesi 🥂

Living the San Fran life:

Living the San Fran life:

Given that our trip to Las Vegas was amazing in so many ways, Alex & I decided to add onto that success and head out to San Francisco. Having the opportunity to visit the city after a couple of years was definitely worth it. For not only did I get to enjoy everything for a second time but since I returned as an adult I got to cherish a lot of places that as a child went over my head. While there we got to visit some beautiful places in the city and even got to squeeze in a visit to Napa Valley, which is a definite must if you’re planning a trip to San Francisco! Little did I know that for those who live in San Francisco, Napa is the place to be for many to make day trips. It’s basically the equivalent of what Walt Disney World is for many Floridians, except there’s more wine instead of Mickey Mouse.

Having experienced Napa Valley I definitely can see why it is that locals come so often, it was without a doubt the highlight of our trip. It began with Alex & me renting a car near our hotel in Union Square and driving up to Napa at 3:00AM, having to make it to Napa at exactly 5:00AM. Luckily we made it right on time for our hot air balloon ride which was lifting off at 5:30AM. Being the planning type, Alex had pre-booked our flight through Napa Valley Balloons and the option we got was the one that offered the ride with a post-flight brunch including unlimited mimosas at Domain Chandon California. Before Alex booked our flight, he had done some research as to which company was the best to go with, since there’s so many to choose from. He eventually stumbled across the company we chose because of all their great reviews and a specific pilot that had 30+ years of experience in maneuvering those bad boys. Obviously we were very interested in finding someone who knew how to safely fly the hot air balloons cause plummeting from that height was not in my plans. Not only that but we were also interested in someone who would make the flight 10X better with their personality and that was definitely the case with ours.

Our pilot’s name was Bob and he not only lived up to his expectations but exceeded them. Besides being very knowledgeable in everything hot air balloon related, he was also very funny & was able to make our flight over Napa, which lasted about 1 hour & 20 minutes, very memorable. We flew out 20 miles from our departure location, which was not the same time length or distance as that of other flyers there. Getting to see such amazing scenery over the Napa valley with a beautiful sunrise was truly worthwhile and I’ll definitely cherish this moment for the rest of my life.

After our flight, we filled up on a very delicious brunch and as soon as we got over the various glasses of mimosas we decided to drive up to Castello di Amorosa. Showcasing some of the best wines in all of Napa Valley this authentically styled 13th century Tuscan castle & Winery was a perfect follow up to an already amazing day. The wine alone is totally worth the drive there, since it’s only sold here, but if you need another reason to go then the castle would definitely be it. You get to roam around the castle with a tour guide and learn about the history behind it all. Plus included in the tour, you get to taste 6 different glasses of wine and actually see how they are made.

Although Napa holds about 400+ different wineries, one day alone isn’t enough to actually enjoy Napa to the fullest. But with the very little time that we had in California, one day was totally enough to say that we completely fell in LOVE with Napa. So much so that I’ll definitely be coming back there some day and get to experience the magic all over again that this place has over any who visit it.

XOXO, Yesi 🥂
