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.

Trump pulls out of Iran nuclear deal

President Donald Trump announced Tuesday he is quitting the Iran nuclear deal, pitting him against the United States’ closest allies and leaving the future of Tehran’s nuclear ambitions in question. It is clear to me that we cannot prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement,  Trump said from the White House Diplomatic Room. The Iran deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing we know exactly what will happen. In announcing his long-telegraphed decision, Trump said he would initiate new sanctions on the regime, crippling the touchstone agreement negotiated by his predecessor. Trump said any country that helps Iran obtain nuclear weapons would also be strongly sanctioned. This was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made, the President said in remarks that, at times, misrepresented the international agreement’s provisions. It didn’t bring calm, it didn’t bring peace, and it never will. Trump’s decision could have explosive consequences, straining longstanding US alliances, disrupting oil markets and boosting tensions in the Middle East even if the US reversal doesn’t lead Iran to restart its atomic program.

Should The NFL Take Out The Kickoff?

Ever since I could remember there was always the famous kickoff to start every football game. It was the moment that sparked the game and you were always hoping there was that one chance that a big play would come out of it. Now the NFL might be taking out the kickoffs all together.

Baltimore Ravens v Philadelphia Eagles

The president of the Packers and member of the NFL Competition Committee, Mark Murphy stated that even with the new rules that help protect the players and safety for everyone involved, the kickoffs are still a dangerous part of the game.

Even with the two new rules applied to the game, there still have been serious injuries to players due to the kickoffs. They moved the kick to the 30 yard line and the touch back zone up to the 25 yard line to avoid the number of returns. Still there are 11 players running full speed hoping to get a huge hit on the kick returner.

There have been multiple cases of concussions from the kickoff alone. Concussions are a serious injury that can lead to long lasting brain problems. Mark Murphy and others have come out and are trying to get the kickoff to be taken out fully. Then there are others who just want to change the play so it isn’t as dangerous. They are still trying to find a way to change the play so it doesn’t have such and impact on the game and is safer for the players. 2012-07-24-mark murphy

I think they should not take out the kickoff completely, but I do think they should make some changes. They should have the kicker alone come out onto the field at the 15 yard line. Then where ever the ball lands is where the drive should start. The touch back area would just be the touchdown and then they would be able to take it at the 25 yard line. Who do you side with and what do you think the NFL should do?

Lebron Suits?

For a couple of playoff games now, Lebron James has bought the whole team matching suites. Even though they look good together, it seems whenever this occurs they don’t play good together.

when Lebron did this for the Cavs vs Pacers games, they completely got blown out of the water. After that close call with the Pacers, the Cavs needed a wake up call.

That’s just what they got against the Toronto Raptors. Lebron didn’t buy the team matching suites the whole 4-0 games they played against them. That’s when fans started wondering if the suites had anything to do with the way the team plays.

Then for the first game against the Celtics, Lebron did the same thing and bout the whole team matching suites. We all know how that ended up. The Celtics crushed the Cavs and Lebron only scored 15 points the whole game.

Yeah, I know that this is just a little myth Cavs fans made up to have some sort of hope against the Celtics. But it is kinda fun to see if the suites actually have any effect on how the Cavs play. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

How To Create A Good Study Plan

A study plan is an organized schedule that students create that outlines study times and learning goals. Just like with work or school schedules, students should develop a study schedule where they can block off days and times in their calendar dedicated to studying. Creating a study plan not only helps you become more organized, but it also holds you accountable for your own learning outcomes. If you are an online student, a study plan is even more important in your success in college, since you need to have self-discipline and determination to complete your studies without the constant reminders of a parent or teacher. A study plan is an effective way to help you through your education in an organized way.
