2009 is almost gone forever! This year has gone by super duper fast and I can't still believe that 2010 is approaching us just around the corner. So many fun, sad, happy, and exciting things happened this year! 2009 was a great year for many things in my life, while there are still other things that wouldn't hurt to be forgotten, I am still glad that I am still here and looking forward to a new year! Now a New Year means much to a blog right? lol Yes, it means that I need to continue to blog and be more consistent. With life consisting of work and school, blogging tends to be put on the back burner many times, but maybe this New Year's resolution would be for me to continue blogging. Things/Goals I hope to bring to "Simplybeautifulyou" in 2010 are: Giveaways Product Reviews Tutorials FOTD/EOTD/all the OTD lol! FOR SALE!! Daily Deals + Life Lessons! I would love to hear some feedback on what you would love to hear, see, read from this blog, so that I get a better idea of where to go with this blog. Hopefully the next time I come back, I'll be in the NEW YEAR!! Have a great New Years! Everyone!

Look What I GOT!!! Early Christmas Gift!!
Last week, I got a package in the mail from my sis in law and on the box said:
"Coastal Scents"
I opened it up and it was the "88 Warm Palette". I have been eyeing this baby for quite some time now (more like a year) but never got the push to really get it online, even when there was a coupon code. I have so much makeup lying around, I always told myself, I don't need it, it will just be another palette collecting dust and not be used. Also I have plenty of neutrals that I use and own already, "I don't need anymore!". You can say was excited to get the palette, cause it was my first "Coastal Scents" item, and my first palette of those types of palettes. I have been able to swatch some colors and use them on my eyes. So far so good, from what I have see. Not so much fall out, or chalky colors. I can say that majority of the colors can be used in any color combination and look beautiful.
Hopefully in the next few weeks, I can get a few photos as to where I used them on my eyes.
CS 88 Warm Palette
You can purchase this palette from Coastal Scents! Thanks so much SIS! I love it!!

Review It!
Cosmedicine Primary Care Moisturizer

This is currently my favorite Moisturizer, in which I need to get more, since I’m almost out. I’ve always had a little of oily skin, so I didn’t really need to apply moisturizer after cleansing, but within the last year, my face started to get very dry and dehydrated. After I finished washing my face, my face was so dry and would start to get itchy. It probably didn’t help that I live in Florida, and the heat could dry my face up too. So I was on the look out for a new moisturizer. It took me a long while researching low and high end moisturizers, looking for reviews, and ever getting samples to try. I like the fact that usually higher end products I can get samples (ie: sephora), but with drugstore products you have to buy the product in order to test them. After testing a few samples, I decided to try this one.

Cosmedicine Primary Care Moisturizer – SPF 20

As Said on

What it is formulated to do:

-Reverses dryness

-Helps repair the appearance of lines and wrinkles

-Bolsters skin's defenses, enhancing its ability to protect itself from both internal and external assaults to help prevent future damage

Clinical trials using state-of-the-art high resolution tools measured: -65% reduction in skin dryness -32% improvement in skin elasticity -31% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles -21% increase in hydration -71% increase in protection against free radical activity caused by UV Radiation

Recommended For SKINSTATES: -Basic Skin Health -Excessive Dryness -Sun Protection

Product: 4 blushes

Price: 3 lippies

Overall: 4 eyeshadows


~ Gives me enough hydration and moisture for my face

~ Comes with sunscreen SPF 20, which means I don’t have to apply so much.

~ Comes in a Tube, just squeeze!!

~ A little goes a long way!

~ No distinct smell (which I like, dislike per fumy smells)

~ Very good with lessening my acne. (hence the primary care label)

~Absorbs quickly and is super lightweight


~ Can leave a slight oily sheen on face (got use to it though)

~ Pricey @ $38

This moisturizer can be found Sephora or on

Overall, this has been working fine for me especially during the last few summer months. It has kept me hydrated and my face is much softer and less dry. I’ve noticed after a few months of using it, that my skin as gotten so much better. (will vary)

My acne has cleared up a lot and hasn’t been scarring as much, in which I like. It’s pricey, but worth my every $$ that spend.

I will be buying this product until it doesn’t work for me anymore.

You can buy this product from
