Review | Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum

Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum

I am big fan of Mario Badescu products, so it when I wanted to incorporate vitamin C into my skincare regime I added one from Mario Badescu. This little 1 oz bottle lasted a little over a year and that is plenty of time for me to make up my mind about it, right? Continue reading

Review | Schmidt’s Lavender and Sage Natural Deodorant

Until recently I had accepted that body odor was an undeniable fact of life. Over the years I have tried countless deodorants from the United States to Europe, Suave to Lady Speedstick to Nivea. They would work initially but eventually they would all fail and I would yet again find myself staring at the wall of deodorant at Target. But one day, one day I see a simple white tube with a name I had never heard, Schmidt’s… could Schmidt’s be it? Continue reading

Review | Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Waterproof Makeup

garnier waterproof micellar water

When micellar waters first hit the American market and grew in popularity I was beside myself with excitement. Then they released variations and I was unsure but curious and decided to try one, the Garnier one for waterproof makeup. At the time I also said I’d start using waterproof makeup hence why I bought it, that did not happen. What did happen was that I hated it, I used it all but I hated it. Continue reading

This Week at the Drugstore

Here is something I haven’t done in a long, long time: this week at the drugstore! Theres a few items I had my eye on for some time, a couple that were on sale, and necessities. For the first time in months, I had a good time wandering up and down the aisles looking at products. Continue reading

Review | Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream Night

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream Night

If there is a perfect time to write about a product it’s probably when you’ve used it all up. If that is the case then I have some catching up to do… I recently finished a tube of the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream Night and not to give too much away but I don’t see a difference. Not to say that is a bad thing. Continue reading

February Favorites

February favorites

Happy March ya’ll! I can honestly and without cliché say that March snuck up on me. Hell, mid-February snuck up on me and whatever half-thought plans I had in mind went out the window. I think I can also say that I had fun with makeup and blogging in February, a turn around from the previous month or two, with my first destash and empties post. And now, I also have February favorites. Products that I looked at mid-month and said, “Oh yes, you are a going in there!” Continue reading

Empties no.1

makeup empties

This post is uncharted territory for me, even after a year and half of blogging. I have never done an empties post, partly because I am too forgetful and toss everything in the bin and partly because it takes me three months to collect enough bottles for a single post. These are empties from about October to mid-January, for as many products as I have I don’t go through them that fast. Continue reading

Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer

MARIO BADESCU A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer

Once I had my skin care routine down I wanted to get into the specifics of it. I replaced my basic, morning-and-night moisturizer with the Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer, it was also a step in the direction of upgrading my skincare products. I never hear moisturizers talked about which makes finding one all the more daunting. However, I think I found a keeper.  Continue reading

October Favorites

October 2016 favorites

The last time I posted my monthly favorites was April, I’d say I am overdo. It was tempting to do an all-encompassing post with every product I have adored since April but thought better of it. This month I moved, learned to time a new commute, bought nothing new, and appreciated what I had. I also used makeup to get myself in the autumn mood since it has been in the high seventies for most of the month.
