As women age, their skin undergoes various changes that may require different skincare products than those used in their 20s. At the age of 30-40, it is essential to take care of your skin to maintain its health and prevent premature aging. In this blog post, we will discuss the top skincare products that every 30-40 year old woman should use to achieve healthy and youthful-looking skin.


A gentle and effective cleanser is essential for every skincare routine, regardless of age. For women in their 30s and 40s, a cleanser that contains hydrating and anti-aging ingredients is recommended. Look for cleansers that contain glycolic acid or salicylic acid to exfoliate the skin, hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, and antioxidants like vitamins C and E to protect the skin from environmental damage.

Vitamin C

Serum Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps to brighten the skin, reduce dark spots, and protect against environmental damage. A vitamin C serum is an excellent addition to any skincare routine, especially for women in their 30s and 40s. It helps to promote collagen production, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles and evens out the skin tone.

Retinol Cream

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and is one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients. It helps to increase collagen production, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and even out the skin tone. A retinol cream is a must-have for women in their 30s and 40s who want to maintain youthful-looking skin. However, it’s important to start with a low concentration and gradually increase usage to avoid skin irritation.

Eye Cream

The skin around the eyes is delicate and prone to aging. Therefore, using an eye cream is essential for women in their 30s and 40s. Look for eye creams that contain hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and caffeine. These ingredients help to hydrate the skin, reduce dark circles, and puffiness and brighten the eye area.


Sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature aging. Therefore, using sunscreen daily is a must for every age group. However, as women age, they may need a higher SPF and sunscreen that contains antioxidants like vitamin E and niacinamide. These ingredients help to protect the skin from environmental damage and prevent further aging.

In conclusion, as women age, their skin requires different skincare products to maintain its health and youthfulness. A gentle cleanser, vitamin C serum, retinol cream, eye cream, and sunscreen are the top skincare products that every 30-40 year old woman should use. Remember to always patch test new products and consult with a dermatologist if you have any concerns about your skincare routine.


How To Create My Everyday Makeup Look: Step-by-Step Tutorial

How To Create My Everyday Makeup Look: Step-by-Step Tutorial

I’ve been a makeup enthusiast for 20 years and since then I realized that every woman should have a go-to makeup look or a signature face. That’s a makeup look that you know will never fail you. You will 100 percent look good every time because it’s a look that you’ve perfected for some time, so you can basically complete the look in your sleep. Well this look is my “Everyday Makeup Look” I wear it all the time. I wear it for my Instagram/ blog pictures also If I have an event to attend this is the look, with maybe a bit of shimmer for some razzle dazzle hahah. It’s hilarious to me though because if you could see the amount of screenshots in my phone with different makeup looks that I told myself I would try; and never do, ugh. I just always find myself coming back to my signature face because your girl is always in a rush. I highly recommend you guys try out different looks and see what works, I promise you it will save so much time.

3 Makeup Products Every Girl Needs

3 Makeup Products Every Girl Needs

Hey My Loves,

I’m no gatekeeper so I’m going to share 3 makeup products that every girl needs in her makeup bag.

Product Links:

  1. Makeup Primer {Here} {Here}
  2. Setting Powder {Here} {Here}
  3. Setting Spray {Here}

Makeup Primer:

Makeup Primer is what goes on before your foundation. A makeup primer is going to make sure your makeup doesn’t slip and slide. Invest in a good makeup primer, ladies. My favorite is from the brand Milk Makeup and Elf.

Setting Powder:

A setting powder is very necessary; it’s what helps your makeup to in fact set. However you don’t have to set/bake for a long time, just enough to be sure your makeup stays put. I love Laura Mercier and Huda Beauty.

Setting Spray:

The setting spray is a crucial part to your makeup routine, it’s basically the finishing touch. Your setting spray is what’s going to give your makeup that air brush look that we all love and your makeup will last for hours. I swear by the setting spray from Urban Decay.

Let me know in the comments what your holy grail products are.

Black peplum top

I recently visited the Express store and came across this black top that screamed my name. It was chic and girly and the fact that it was black and the quality was amazing gave it a 10 in my book. I shared it on my IG stories as I loved it so much and to my surprise, many of you loved it too. Oh and if you’re not following me over on IG then you should run:)


This was a banger this week for obvious reasons, A nice pair of over the knee boots should be a staple in your closet; especially if you experience both Fall and the Winter season.

Yankee Cap

I’m never surprised when I see this item weekly as a top fave from you guys. As much as I love my head wraps. I do love a good NY fitted cap. It compliments so many outfits plus it’s a good way to hide your hair on not-so-good hair days. I’m currently drooling over the beige color {Here} next on my list.

Bottega Veneta Dupe

Ahhhh I posted this stunner on my IG feed and you all went crazy so many Dm’s about this. Listen; I was just as shook when I received it- couldn’t believe how great it looked in person and the fact that it was prime was a WIN okay…

Gold Chunky Necklace

I was so happy when I saw a few of you purchase this item; as I promised you guys that I would be on the hunt for a nice gold chunky necklace- and this one didn’t disappoint.


This was super random but a lot of you picked this up and I couldn’t be happier as it’s one of my faves and a part of my daily regimen.

Thanks for reading and I can’t wait to see what makes the list next week.

Love Uzzz,

Sephora Must Haves

Sephora Must Haves

I recently went to Sephora and picked up a few goodies. I love them all and have been using these products from Whappie kill Phillup which means in Jamaican patois since forever. I remember the moment that I got into high end products. I just turned thirty lol and I was like umm so we are not gonna only use neutrogena although they’re some really good affordable drug store products as well. I swear by Cerave products you guys know this especially if you watched my youtube video where I go in more deets about it here. I also knew I wanted to up my makeup game too. Again, although I do swear by Loreal, Elf and a few more I wanted to the day I turned thirty I knew I wanted to really treat my skin well overall….I knew it needed moisture and glow and I really wanted to improve the texture. Over the years I have truly figured out what works and I love that for meeee.

Ole Henriksen Dark Spot Toner: Is an absolute game changer for me, I swear it removed pretty much all dark spots along with using Vitamin C ofcourse; but I definitely credit most of it to this product.

Nars Blush: This blush is beautiful, goes on nice and matte and the color is so bright and vivid. A little goes a long way as you don’t need much for it to pop on those cheeks.

Laneige Lip Mask: Okay so I was on the fence about this one for awhile as it’s a bit pricey for a lip product. I remember being desperate as my lips got super chapped in the winter and I hated the way it looked when I applied my makeup. I had heard so many good things about this product and coincidentally received a mini version as a birthday gift from Sephora …and Ya’ll I was hooked lol. Let’s just say it feels like luxury on your lips; plus it lasts a very long time which makes up for the price. I need to try the other flavors.

Laura Mercier Powder: Anyone that has this product will tell you it’s soo good I also swear by Huda but this is a fave for sure.

Kiehl’s Reviving Concentrate: I love using this stuff. I picked it up one day on a whim, literally had the sales clerk convince me it was good. I was desperate as my skin was so dry and I felt like it needed a lil umph; well this did the trick. I prefer putting it on when I apply my makeup, it goes on so smoothly.

Bum Bum Cream; AllI have to say about this is that it smells divine, my son and husband go crazy when I wear it. The smell is a bit overpowering so you only need the smallest amount

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream: Lavvvvvv it’s so good, nice and thick… like I like my creams to be. Trust me your face will be so moisturized after applying this baby.

Kiehl’s Creamy Avocado Eye Cream: This was one of my first eye creams I purchased, It really got me at avocado tbh. It goes on thick but absorbs in the skin very nicely. This product is super hydrating your skin; your skin will thank you. Oh and it also works great under your eye makeup.

Benefits Porefessional: Okay so this brand was first introduced to me by a famous Youtuber Jackie Aina; she raved about this and I was fortunate enough to receive it in a PR package, and when I tell you I love it believe me. I only use it in key areas on my face where my pores may look a bit huge.

Ole Henriksen Pore Mask: As you can tell by now I adore the brand so again picked this up on a whim and was pretty pleased with the results.

Banana Eye Cream: Love this Cream as well it actually really brightens the under eye and works great under makeup. This is perfect for those who may suffer with a bit of discoloration under the eyes.

Milk Hydro Grip: This primer is really good and if you’re into makeup and beauty I’m sure you’ve seen your faves apply this primer before doing their makeup. It’s really that girl

Benefits Brow Setter: This product is too bomb. What makes it good in my opinion is the wand and for that I’m gonna stick beside it lol.

Benefits Precisely My Brow Pencil: Let’s just say I haven’t used another brow pencil in years. I have tried different shades of Brown but that’s it…Really the only thing that gets my brows together and I love the brush at the other end of the pencil.
