WARNING: The tips in this blog post may lead to you living a #NoFilterLife in all your pictures and bitches may not be ready LMAO

A few weeks ago at the but crack of dawn I poured myself out of bed, rolled myself down the hall to the bathroom and began my morning routine as usual. Somewhere between brushing my teeth and spitting I caught a glimpse of my bare face in the mirror...and damn near jumped back.

Looking back at me was the face of a 25 year old that had spent one too many nights downing her drinks as the bartender yells last call and the lights start to go up.

Now if I actually WAS one of those girls and my face looked like that things would be kosher, however I hardly drink and the last time I heard last call at the bar I was 22 and a drunken mess screaming "WHERE IS MY PHONE" as I used the flashlight app on my phone to desperately searched for my phone in my purse  (don't judge me)

The point is... my face looked terrible! Lines all around my eyes, bags under them and dark circles to match and don't even get me started on the bumps that were starting to appear on my cheeks.

I felt like my life was crumbling right in front of me. The worst part of it all was that part of this...actually maybe most of, probably all of this is completely my fault. 

Over the past year or so I have let me skin care routine go to complete shit. I've been overly stressed, slacking on my water intake, not sleeping properly and leaving my makeup on at least 3 times a week...stack that on top of just using absolutely no type of deep cleanser on my face smh I'm surprised all this didn't catch up with me sooner.

So after realizing if I kept this behavior up by time next week came I would probably look like a zombie, I decided to get my butt in gear.

 The very next day I went out and got a Brita filter and a water bottle that I vowed I would fill at least twice a day meaning I should be drinking at least 8 cups of water (my Brita holds 6 cups)

I started putting myself to bed at a decent time every night, previously I would stay up till 2 or 3am doing NOTHING knowing damn well I would have to be up by 7:30 to start getting ready for work.

Taking off my make up became a nightly routine whether I wanted it to or not

And lastly I started doing some heavy research on how to get rid of fine lines and dark circles, now my dark circles are partially due to allergies and have been there in some form for most of my life they get worse during allergy season but I knew how dark they were now was not all just allergies.

Of course I found post after post about overly expensive products that claim to remove fine lines and dark circles followed by review after review of these products NOT FUCKING WORKING. 

But just as I was going to give up...I saw a post about this stuff right here

And yalllllllllllllll this ish right here.....THIS ISH RIGHT HERE!!


I have been using coconut oil for the past week as a make up remover, deep cleanser, fine line/dark circle reducer and a moisturizer!!

Its honestly like someone bottled pixie dust, unicorn blood, rainbows and a lock of jesus hair all for the good of my face.

This stuff is the ultimate all in one product! Now I personally can only vouch for the virgin coconut oil but...chile you need to stop reading this post right now and go get you some. But I'm telling you if you want to be able to say #nofilter. GO GET THIS! I have seen VAST improvements in the softness of my skin, the fading of fine lines and dark circles in a week y'all A WEEK. I can't wait to see what a month or more brings.

Until Next Time,
XO Deanna
