Best Drugstore Moisturizer for Oily Acne Prone Skin

Hey y’all! Happy July 4th! Leave me a comment down below what you are doing to celebrate today. I am just going to chill with my family and friends later tonight.

So if you read the title of this post you are probably a little skeptical, because truly is there one “Best Moisturizer for Everyone” out there? Well no, but this moisturizer I have been using for eight months now and I can really tell a difference in my skin. So drum roll please….the best drugstore moisturizer for oily acne prone skin is COCONUT OIL!

It seems these days coconut oil is the holy grail skincare item. I simply just put a tiny amount on my face every night and rub it in before I go to bed. You may wondering, how does an OIL help OILY SKIN? Well, sometimes when people have oily skin it is because there skin isn’t hydrated enough so an excess of oil is produced. I have found that coconut oil helps hydrate the skin the perfect amount. I also have a lot of acne and scarring and it seems to help with the scarring and make it not as red.

I would say if you are a gal struggling with oily acne prone skin and you need a cheap miracle product, give this a try. Even if you aren’t struggling with acne or oily skin I would still try it. Plus, if it turns out this doesn’t work for your skin, you can always use it to cooke with!

Leave me a comment down below if you use coconut oil and what you think about it! Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss my new post tomorrow!

How to Have a Productive Summer

Hey y’all! My name is Emily and this is my very first post, how exciting! Welcome to my little corner of the internet where I am going to share with you all about beauty, fashion, traveling, and just random life things.


Today I am going to be sharing with you all 5 tips I have for having a productive summer. During the summer it is so easy to just lay in your bed and watch Netflix for the entire day. It’s okay to have those days every once in a while, but when summer comes to a close you do not want to look back and think ” I was a lazy bum all summer. I did diddly squat.” To ensure you actually have a fun and productive summer, lets get into the tips:


Have A Planner ( and actually use it )

I know what you all are thinking, who really uses a planner in the summer, you have no school work. Well, every Sunday I get out my planner and plan out my week. I put in it what days I have to work and then I think about what I could do with my friends and who I haven’t seen in a while. Having a planner gives me the chance to see the exorbitant amount of free time I actually have. ( P.S. If you want me to do another post on how I organize my planner I can totally do one! )

Wake Up at a Decent Time

I know, I know who wants to wake up before 9 during the summer. Definitely not me, I would much rather go to bed at 2 am and wake up at 11, but whenever I do that I am just never productive. This summer on most days I wake up around 7:45 because I am nannying this little girl and she comes over at 8. As much as I don’t want to get out of the bed I do and honestly, it feels as if I get so much more accomplished since I am up at a decent time. I would try to get to bed by midnight and wake up no later than 9 to have a productive day.

 Drink Water

So you may be wondering, “How does water make me more productive”? This is simple. Drinking water makes you feel hydrated, and when you are hydrated you automatically feel better because your body feels better, hence you will have a greater chance of getting stuff done and having a productive day.


Exercise is proven to make you feel better and less tired so of course you will be more productive throughout the rest of the day. It’s probably a good idea to try to exercise towards the morning, but honestly I like going on walks in the evening because it is not as hot.

Keep Your Room Clean

When your room is a cluttered mess ( like mine is as I am writing this because I have been procrastinating ) it’s hard to get your thoughts straight. Who wants to be productive if their mind is in as much chaos as their room.
