Tarte Frxxxtion Stick Review

After a long day of wearing your makeup, do you ever have the feeling like your skin still isn’t that clean? Well I might have found the perfect solution for you! The Tarte Frixxxtion Stick. The makeup brand known as Tarte, also has a skin care line, and one of their many products is the Frxxxtion Stick, a travel friendly 3-in-1 cleanser. It is currently retailing for $22 and you get 1 oz/28 grams, and is rated 4.6 stars out of five on Sephora’s website, and 4.8 on Tarte’s.

The 3-in-1 cleansing stick, that twists up, is an exfoliant, cleaners, and a mask. This product is said to be the solution for oiliness (or just shininess in general), pores, as well as dull and uneven texture. The Frxxxtion Stick is vegan, hypoallergenic, as well as dermatologist tested. It is also formulated to not have any parabens or phthalates, and is made for all skin types.

The stick gently scrubs away the dead skin with “diatomaceous earth micro exfoliants” and has antioxidant algae that helps keep the skin looking revived and fresh by protecting and illuminating without it looking oily or greasy. You simply apply the formula on my massaging the stick directly on to your face.

Now I got to test this product and I absolutely fell in love with it! It is so travel friendly and productive. I have combination skin that is extremely sensitive skin with very little to no acne. Due to the fact that I have combination skin, I have some areas with dry patches and most exfoliators just dry me out more, but my oiliness gets worse if I don’t do some kind of exfoliant. I felt like this product successfully was able to get the dry and dead skin of my face without drying me out. The application is very easy and gentle, it tug or pull the skin and you honestly can’t feel the exfoliants till you actually massage it in.

I did have some cons about this product though, one big problem was the fact that it is a stick. My main problem with any kind of skin care or even makeup that is stick form is that they sometimes build of bacteria. Where as with a bottle, you constantly get new and fresh product out, you can’t do this with a stick. Due to you constantly using the same surface all over your face, it can kind of get nasty and grimey, and because of this build up, it may cause acne because you won’t truly be cleaning your skin after a while. Another con I had is I kind of feel as if this product goes extremely fast. One application use a bit of product and I don’t have $22 to throw in one product every few weeks.

Although I had a couple cons with this product, which is normally because no product is absolutely perfect, I still love it and plan to purchase it again, even with the price being slightly up there. I feel like this product did wonders for my skin and would 100% recommend this product.

Investigative

Every high school student can relate to the horrible mornings of going to school. Waking up at 5 in the morning Monday through Friday is no fun for any teenager who loves to sleep in and stay out late. That’s why high schoolers like the weekend until Monday rolls around again and we are back on the schedule of early morning wake ups. So why do schools think it is a good idea to have students wake up so early for school?They think that 7:00 is a late enough time till you factor in time to drive to school and the traffic to get into school. That’s when the staff realizes that students have to get up earlier than they think.

Everyone knows that you aren’t truly awake when you first get out of bed. So what do people think happens in first bell, that we actually comprehend what the teacher is lecturing about? First bell we all are still asleep but trying to act like we aren’t.Students don’t truly wake up till about third bell, so in all honesty the first two bells of school are a waste of time.What is the point of coming to school when we aren’t really awake to learn what the teacher is trying to teach us? There is no point.

The biggest problem of going to school so early is what happens if you wake up a little late. You start scrambling to get ready and hope you can make it on time to only get caught in traffic of everyone else that is late or went to breakfast to skip first bell. If school started later maybe all the unexcused tardies would go down a bit. Many upper class man don’t show up on time because they want to sleep in a few extra minutes and then get breakfast. Yet schools decide to keep starting early and prolonging the school days. West Clermont High School starts at 7:45 and doesn’t end till 3:00 in the afternoon. Three doesn’t sound late until you factor in the 20 minutes of traffic it takes to get out of school and the hour or so of homework a student has. For students that have jobs, sports or clubs after school they don’t get home till 8:00 at night which doesn’t leave a lot of time to finish things for school.

Which leads to the second point, it might be a good thing school starts earlier rather than later. With teenagers being active people (even though adults won’t agree that we are) we need all the hours after school that we can. Most students have jobs after school, sports,or a club. There have been times this year where West Clermont’s theatre group didn’t get home till 8:00 or later. Now imagine the homework they have to do and what time they are going to be able to get all of it done. If school went any later students would have no down time, it would be what we did in the morning, school, sleep, repeat. That would leave no time for jobs after school which means that students would not be able to buy food or gas. Jobs are essential in helping people mature. Which is one of the biggest things adults complain about. They feels we don’t have enough responsibility so teenagers need to have jobs to help that. So it can be a good idea to have school start a little earlier so we can get out sooner. It shouldn’t be that hard for people to get up early if they want to get breakfast or to get up at all. Every choice a person makes has consequences and it would be better for people to learn that in high school than later in life.

Going to school early or late will have many different opinions from different people.

Some will agree that it will be more productive for the students of it starts later so they are actually awake for the first couple of bells. Others will think to keep it early so we can do stuff after school. If students really want to sleep then go to bed early instead of staying up really late.After looking through articles about what is best I still think it is better to have it early. High School students don’t need to go to breakfast every day before school. All they need to do is go to the grocery store and buy some food. I would rather have time after school to hang out than sleep in and stay late at school. Besides getting up to school will just help us later in life when we have to get up to go to work. Delaying the time of school starting doesn’t really help anything because students will just stay up even later than they already do.

High school sports get dropped

Most people enjoy sports and going to the games and cheering on their favorite team. In high school when you can go the games and stand in your schools student section and yells cheers to the opposing teams student section, getting the gym or field all hyped up.

But imagine if it was all gone. Not like you graduate and your not apart of it anymore. Even if you graduate you can go to the games and enjoy them and still cheer. But what if high school sports were dropped? What would all the athletes do? Could you imagine losing the feeling of going to school sitting in class, all day anxiously waiting for the school day to end to go to your game. If school sports were dropped, kids would drop out of school. They wouldn’t see a point in coming. Some students get into colleges because of sports not because of academics.

Sports are extremely important in building your character, managing time, and building your work ethic. Some people wouldn’t mind if sports were dropped because they would get more time to do homework concentrate in school work, more free time after school. Honestly though more students would be affected by dropping sports.

Should Students Wear School Uniforms?

People say that school uniforms make schools a healthier place for students. They say uniforms make people equal. Uniforms also encourage children to focus on their schoolwork rather than their clothes.  Other people say that school uniforms take away students ability to express themselves. They also say that students who wear uniforms don’t behave better or do better in school. They argue that uniforms actually show more rather than hide the differences between wealthy and poor students.

They have “colored pencils” that can be used as lip liners or eyeliners, as well as a brush set that looks like pencils. They also make an eye primer that is supposed to look like a bottle of Elmer’s glue. Although the brand has many school themed products, it’s not completely school themed. They have normal brushes, beauty blenders, a couple eyeshadow palettes, eyebrow gels, and more. You should definitely check out The Crayon Case’s website and see if you like anything.

Jay Feely’s Prom Picture Fiasco

It is officially prom time, for some prom is already over and others it is almost here, and what is everyone’s favorite thing for dances: posting picture. Everyone loves getting on social media and looking at others photos and stealing ideas. Of course then you have dads who love torturing the boyfriend with the old gun in hand photo that just screams “IF YOU HURT MY DAUGHTER….”. Everybody knows this is the oldest act for dads yet for Jay Feely- an ex NFL kicker- this blew up. Jay posted a picture of him between his daughter and her boyfriend with a gun in his hand that is by his leg. Now this is nothing new and can tell it is just a joke by the looks on their faces yet people seemed to get mad at it. One person commented “Oh yay – American dads have kicked off the season of “let’s pretend I’m going to shoot my daughter’s date for impugning her chastity””. After seeing this comment Jay commented back “THe prom picture I posted was obviously intended to be a joke. My daughter has dated her boyfriend for over a year and they knew I was joking. I take gun safety seriously (the gun was not loaded and had no clip in) and I did not intend to be insensitive to that important issue.”. It is true that gun safety is a big issue but if you look at the picture you can obviously see that his finger wasn’t near the trigger and he is holding the gun very carefully as if it was loaded. All things considered I doubt this would have blown up if somebody else posted this picture that wasn’t famous. Every dad gives the daughters boyfriend crap about treating their daughter right so why is this any different? Granted this isn’t the most appropriate picture to post with high schools different but you can tell that Jay is being careful about where the gun is pointed. Yes, there are many points about how people can see the picture differently but that is are own faults. We can’t look at all pictures with a gun in it and explode on the person who posted it. Jay was just making a joke with his daughter and her boyfriend that was completely harmless but people decided to ruin with drama. Both the boyfriend and daughter look happy and look like they are going to laugh. Only Jay is pulling off the serious look but even he looks entertained with himself. Yes, prom pictures are supposed to look cute but you also have to have fun and doing the old dad picture should not have this big of a blow up.
