I purchased Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist (2.7oz/$15) at Target as so many beauty bloggers rave about mists as part of a proper skincare regimen. As I am naturally oily, I proceeded with caution when I bought it. It contains hyaluronic acid, black oat, proVitamin A and linoleic acid. Combined, these... Continue reading

I received a sample of Arrow Endure Water Resistant Mascara ($18) from Birchbox which is always a hit with me. I am game for trying a new mascara anytime especially since you are supposed to purchase a new one every 3 months or so. It is described as follows: "No... Continue reading

Obsessed with skin cleansers especially ones that do not foam, strip or dry out the skin. Ones that emulsify or are based in oil or milk rev my beauty engine hard. Pur~lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk ($36/5.07oz) is "fused with soy milk, whole oat and white tea" while being... Continue reading

I only like creme (cream?) eyeshadows. I cannot deal with powders because of fallout, creasing and the maintenance of it all. I much prefer to swipe and go without any mess. Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome ($7.99) in Khaki Kool caught my eye at CVS. It is described as follows:... Continue reading

I purchased Revlon Colorstay Creme Eyeshadow ($7.99) recently because I use creme shadows 99% of the time. I much prefer them to standard powder shadows due to the ease of use and zero mess involved with application. I also think some powder shadows have tremendous fallout and crease quickly. I...

Moisturizer is the skincare product I struggle with the most due to my oily, sensitive and at times, very acne prone skin. I know I need it but so many times in the past, moisturizers either break me out, make me extra greasy or don't do anything. I think I... Continue reading

Hugely into acid toners and I find them to be a necessary step in a skincare regimen if you are serious about taking care of your skin. Exfoliation removes dead surface skin cells which in turn helps unclog pores, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and improves the overall tone of... Continue reading

My skin went CRAZY during the transition from summer to fall--I had multiple breakouts particularly around my jaw and sides of my face. I could not get a handle on it and I was starting to get really bummed out. I finally figured out an oil cleanser I had used... Continue reading

I try to purchase organic, clean beauty products whenever possible, however, I'm not super precious about it either. If something works and causes me no harm (that I know of!), I will likely use it. My skin is super finicky so I can't exclusively pick one area of skincare over... Continue reading

I have been a big fan of Tatcha products for years and when I heard about Tatcha Pore Perfecting Water Gel Moisturizer (1.7oz/$68) I was immediately interested especially since it's "ideal for oily skin."

Hey Honey Take It Off Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask (1.7oz/$32) came my way from a recent Birchbox delivery. It's kinda cute sounding, right? I suppose it depends on how you hear "Hey honey take it off!" though. If it's coming from a construction site or a creepy person, it... Continue reading

While on a recent Target run, Palmer's Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil (6.5oz/$6.99) made me do a double take. I am obsessed with oil and balm cleansers for first and second cleanses. I think they do such a good job of cleaning the face, feel great upon application and provide the... Continue reading

Olay Regenerist Moisturizer (or fancily subtitled "micro sculpting cream") was on my beauty radar as I've read positive reviews about the entire Olay Regenerist line. Rave reviews mention its quality, effectiveness, affordability and availability. I purchased this cream at Target and you get a decent 1.7oz for $28.99. I had... Continue reading
