Hello readers, is it really the end of the month already? Now, if you’re a superfan of moisturizer and have an absolute favorite that you swear by, I wholly acknowledge my click-baity title 😜 Furthermore, I’ve also added a disclaimer to my About page to say that I’m not a professional anything including aesthetician. So I’ve no educated beef with moisturizer… Other than my skin is … Continue reading Is Your Moisturizer Doing More Harm Than Good?
I was sent this product free of charge for review purposes. Hiya readers, is the weather getting to you? It actually hit 30°F down here over the weekend, so although it’s back up to 60, my thin-blooded self is yelling about winter. At least I can bundle up in cozy hoodies now. One thing that’s not so fun about the chill is dry skin and … Continue reading Healing Tree Lip Balm
This post contains affiliate links. Hi readers, one of the survey sites I use redid their system, and everyone had to cash out their points. I traded some for Target gift cards thinking that I could save them for the holidays but couldn’t resist trying a Target Beauty Box. I’ve gotten to it late because of my Las Vegas trip, so I’ve also tried just … Continue reading September 2017 Target Beauty Box
Hello comrades! Apologies for being missing but I took an unexpected trip! I haven’t traveled in 10 years, so it was a great opportunity. Perhaps I will post about it, but I’m playing catch up, so here’s my next empties post. It’s been a couple of months, but I’m still a little surprised that I’ve used up enough products for it. But it is also a … Continue reading September 2017 Empties
So I was originally going to blog about prison labor and companies to avoid, but since writing my Beauty Bakerie post, I’ve been reminded that there’s no ethical consumption under capitalism (hard to trace every factor of a product) and trickle-down economics don’t work. Furthermore, the companies benefiting from what’s being called slavery are the usual suspects like Walmart which may be difficult for poor … Continue reading Shop Latinx Wishlist!
My first Empties post! I really don’t buy or use things enough to have them more often, but the bottles were piling up. I hadn’t kept the best usage record, I wasn’t sure if I should write about them, so please pardon any vague review. Learning experience! O’Pro Organic Protein Leave in Curl Vitalizer Conditioner & Next Image Curl-n-Wavy Curl Defining Conditioner & Detangler I’m reviewing … Continue reading June 2017 Empties
Since I’ve been blogging about masks with natural ingredients and my not-so-natural usual cleanser was running low, I thought about getting something new. But I totally ran out before I found something, so I’m using these cute little samples I got from CeraVe! First of all, this may be irrelevant, but I appreciate the packaging and size. They came in a perfectly sized box and … Continue reading CeraVe Cleanser + Cream
Can you believe there was a time that I didn’t use masks? Honestly, I still probably wouldn’t if they didn’t make such convenient little gift additions. Since I’ve received a few, I thought I’d share their characteristics in case you’re in the mask market. Shea Moisture Mud Mask If you’re a drug store beauty enthusiast, Shea Moisture can be a tempting brand. Just a glance … Continue reading Masks I’ve Been Using
If you’re like me, you’ve been seeing charcoal as the latest ingredient in beauty regimes. However, whenever there’s a popular craze, it can be overwhelming choosing where to start. A wash? A scrub? A mask? What kind? Which brand? Fortunately, Derma e sent me their Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask and Purifying Daily Detox Scrub, and I’m excited to share my experience!* What attracted me to Derma e … Continue reading Derma e Charcoal
Earlier this month I signed up for Ashley and Dean‘s Sweet Progress Summer Box Swap. I’ve never participated in a swap before but felt comfortable enough with this blog to start. I must have imagined something about YouTube in their posts because I decided to make an unboxing video since I haven’t made a video before either. To be honest, I’m very nervous about it? But frick it, … Continue reading Sweet Progress Box Swap!
