Alright, I took a little break from the blog posts to really focus on organizing and thoroughly testing new products. I did that so I could give you as much info as possible and not just a first impression but a true, put to the test, overview/review. Today we're discussing The Organic Skin Co. This is a brand that I had tried their skincare and some of there makeup several months ago and then they sent more makeup related products to do a full face pretty much. It's a really cool brand they're certified vegan, cruelty free and Bio Gro. Keep reading for more info.
Guys we're back with another Drunk Elephant post. Holy crap they came out and dropped a BALM CLEANSER! I mean.....this is the only thing I felt like their collection needed. They freaking done it and kicked the door down while at it. So, I'm going to give you the claims and my first impressions.
Alright guys, I've been working on collecting as much knowledge as possible for different categories and steps in your skincare that I can. My goal for this blog has always been to have as much information as I can get hold of and as many options for products that I can find that I have tried. So this post is going to be dedicated to "essence", "tonics", or "liquid hydrating toners". Many of us are used to the word toner being a slightly more harsh step and an essence is more of a soothing and gentle step. So I'm going to give you my favorites and break down to the best of my ability, the difference in the terminology.
Spring has sprung and it's actually been very lovely the past few days here in Tennessee. I hope it's feeling more like spring where ever you're reading this. Today I'm discussing a spring release for your traveling skincare needs or in case you just want to try this brand if you've not. It's Drunk Elephant.....as you can tell by the title and picture above. It's 2 AM I'm tired....
Alright so lately I've been very fortunate to have an influx in products coming in for me to try as a way to build my knowledge and categories for you guys. I've also been "shopping me shelf" which is an attempt for me to revisit some products that I need to use up or fall in love with all over again. I especially do this when I'm testing a new product and I fill my routine with old faves that I know won't cause an issue. It's part of the testing process and it's re-lit my LOVE for doing my skincare routine every night. To the point that I look so forward to it every night and it lasts much longer than it technically should because I have a good time relaxing and taking some time to turn off all my emails and messaging and social media.
Lately, I've not been well. If you don't know I have a lot of health issues and I'm no stranger to the hospital. So it's been a rough go the last few weeks and I've been away from home a few times. However, no matter what I still do my skincare steps. That's the one thing that's in my overnight bag that I stress over the most and spend the most time on is packing my skincare travel pouch. So I thought it would be a good blog post to discuss what I travel with and why and some tips that I have from experience over the years.
People....there's a new skincare brand we need to talk about. Good Molecules. Heads up, I was sent the "super seven set", from Beautylish. I've been trying it for a few weeks. I've been using it in my regular routine with other products that I love, using it with mainly Good Molecules products in a routine, using certain products at a time not combined with other Good Molecules products. Basically every which way to see how they layered and what I noticed.
Just this week I got to try not 1 but 2 of the NewBeauty TestTube. Editor curated it’s “Newly discovered brands and products that span a range of categories—each stamped with the approval of the editors of NewBeauty.” There are promo’s inside the pamphlet you get. I find that it’s mostly full-size products although it says it’s a “luxury sampling program”, that has 8 or more products worth more than $150 for $30 every other month. You also get a subscription to NewBeauty Magazine. There are so many different products in here not just your typical “beauty” products. Most of these are brands I’ve never tried and some I wasn’t familiar with.
Valentine's Day is around the corner guys, and what better time to discuss some lip balms and lotions for the body. You could pamper yourself, be a nice valentine for a friend, or both. I love giving valentines to my best gal pals, it's almost like our official "girls night tradition" and it makes the "holiday" much more fun in my opinion. Fun fact: aside from Halloween, Valentine's Day is my 2nd favorite holiday.
For all my natural skincare loving people, I have a review for you today. We're going to talk about Zatik Naturals which has an extensive range of natural products. Everything from skincare to haircare and body, etc. Their skincare line has quite the range as well. I'm impressed with how many products they offer. I will be talking about the Glow Moisture Cream and the Relieve Eye Serum. This is the first time I've tried Zatik Naturals. I've been using these together for around 3 maybe 4 weeks.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
