The older I get, the more I am trying to really get my face cleansing routine down. I def see my skin and face starting to age, so I have been on the hunt for something to help this aging old lady here! 😉 On my quest to commit to a regimen, I tried out Belif Aqua Bomb and Knockdown Bomb.
The Belif Aqua Bomb is a hydrating toner that is known to be a lot more different than other toners that tend to dry out your skin. I’ll be honest, I am impressed with it not appearing to dry out my skin. The only problem I have with this is that the third ingredient is alcohol. I try really hard to make sure my products are clean and I’m honestly a little worried with how a product with alcohol isn’t drying my skin out like most toners do. This is a scary mystery to me. Maybe I’m being a little dramatic here and should just be happy for a toner that leaves your skin feeling hydrated and cleansed —–BUT, if you know me….you know I won’t do that. I’ll be researching more on this product before I add it to my everyday regimen, but for now I will just say that this product is light weight and leaves your skin feeling really good. If that’s enough for you, feel free to check it out for yourself!
Next, I tried out their Knockdown Bomb and really liked this product. This is an anti-aging serum that helps your skin look and feel younger. So far, I am loving this product. I’m still not completely “sold” or happy with the ingredients, but I am definitely more comfortable with the ingredients in this than the Aqua Bomb by Belif.
All in all, I won’t be adding either of these to my nightly regimen, BUT I am definitely not opposed to using Knockdown Bomb from time to time. Maybe on my facial scrub nights!
Finding a good face cleaner is SO important for us aging gals. Especially, if you are still in the trying to conceive season, which I am. It’s important for me to make sure what I am putting on my skin is healthy, clean and as natural as possible. Our hormones need CLEAN! Hope this review helps you decide if either of these products are what you need in your routine!

Today is always a tough day for me. It is the due date we were given with our first pregnancy. I was only five weeks along when we miscarried, but I knew in my heart the second we found out we were pregnant that we were having a boy. When I was going through the healing, a pastor that was helping me through encouraged me to name him. Darin and I came together and chose the name Ezra.
Ezra is on my heart and mind daily. I never held him, but BOY did I LOVE HIM! He has been such an integral part of my purpose and God’s plan for my life. If I could hold his little hand and tell him thank you today, I would. He changed and continues to change my life.
This week, I released a LOT of things in my life. I realized a few weeks ago that I wasn’t living the mature and responsible life that I always hoped I would as a mother. There have been a lot of areas in my life that have continued this very immature and childish way of living. As I sat down this week, I began to think about ways I would want my life to be had we had Ezra as a three-year-old.
For one, I would hope we would have been in a forever home that was ours and a place for him to grow up in. Two, we would want to be debt free so that we could make sure we had money for college and all of the things he needed as he grew up. Three, that I would be emotionally healthy and stable – that I would handle disappointments and failures a little bit better than what I have. So, I wrote these three things down and I wrote out all the changes that needed to happen in order to give Ezra the good home he deserved and I released the mindset that was keeping me from having that stable and beautiful home for him.
Dear Ezra, I love you. Since the day I lost you, you have continued to grow and challenge me. The very thought of you inspires me to want to be a better wife, future mother and overall better human. Our home is getting in order and I have you to thank. You teach me in ways I can’t even explain. You aren’t here on earth to see your Dad and I make a better life for you, but I hope you are looking down at us and proud of your mama and papa. Everything we do is for you and your siblings! We love you baby boy!
