H20 Plus Oasis Hydrating Treatment

So you all know by now that I have the most sensitive skin imaginable. I’ve said in previous posts that I have to wash my face with plain Ivory soap or I either get a rash or breakout. I always make sure when trying a new face routine that I don’t have something pressing I need to go to the next day in case I get a rash. Well the same is usually true for moisturizers that I use. I am a tride and true fan of using this moisturizer and I usually don’t waiver. I recently have been using the lotion from this post and find that it still works great but I was sent this new hydrating lotion that I use at night.

 I am sensitive to most cosmetic product smells and perfumes too – it has its own unique “light” smell, but it certainly does not make my eyes water – and its ability to be absorbed by the skin without leaving a residue, or greasy feeling. It also tingles on your face when you first put it on which always makes me feel like it’s doing something! I have read reviews from people that say it works great on oily skin and mine is more dry/combo so if you are in need of a new moisturizer, give this one a go!

I had so many messages after I posted a glimpse into my gallery wall. Many of you wanted to know about specific items that were on the shelves so I thought I would link all the products in a post. Some of these items I bought in stores or quite a while ago but I did try to find as many of them as I could!

I thought you all might enjoy learning about the Believe in Yourself Project that was started a year ago. Some of the objectives of the charity are to combat the financial pressures that are felt on low income girls and their families to continuously stay in style and purchase new items each season along with promote positive body image.

One of the foundation’s activities is donating dresses to underprivileged girls. They have provided dresses to girls to wear to school dances and similar events in various states. The girls will be registered in their system and receive dresses all through out the school year for various special occasions. Recently, girls with limited financial resources in the D.C. area were invited to sign up for the event hosted at the boys and girls club, at which we provided many of them with their first new item for their up coming father / daughter dance. These dresses will be the first of many more donations to girls in the D.C. area as well as across the country.

Believe in Yourself is part of a broader initiative.  They are currently in talks with various influential women who at one time or another have struggled with body image, encouraging them to serve as speakers and mentors to the girls within the program. They are also in the process of setting up mentoring programs around the country.

You can get involved by donating dresses, giving money to the charity or by being a voice.

I’m always looking for new music suggestions. I end up listening to the radio on the way to work so the typical popular pop songs are usually what I end up listening to or songs that I hear during my workout class.
