I’ve been wanting to try something a little different. I’ve run out of my HG Ralph Lauren Romance, I’m very nearly out of my second fave, D&G L’imperatrice. So I picked up the sample size of Ballet Rose at Sephora on a whim.
I am so glad I did! It’s not as aggressively “fresh” as Romance, and it’s less fruity than L’imperatrice. It’s soft, pretty, and has a wonderful staying …Read more

Valjean Labs Restore facial serum claims it will purify as well as soothe stressed, blemish prone skin. I bought it at Marshall’s ($6.99) lured by the promise of soothing stressed skin, I had a breakout on my right cheek and jaw, that while no longer active, had lingering redness. Within a week of using the serum, 4-6 drops nightly there was a notable difference in redness. With the winter …Read more
My all time favorite OPI nail polish. Two coats and you’re good to go. It’s a dark, dark red shimmer in a black base. In the sunlight it sparkles so beautifully and indoors you can just tell that it’s red and not black. Absolutely wonderful color for fall/winter.
I’m housesitting this week for a friend and I’ve been getting a lot of sun, I had packed a few masks to do in the evenings just as a treat and the travel size (in a tube) made it into the pack that I brought. I always store gel masks in the fridge and this one felt amazing going on after slightly sunburning my nose and forehead today. I don’t know if it was firming, but my skin still feels …Read more
Such a game changer. I’m going on 28 and have been battling acne since the age of 12. This has dramatically reduced my redness, cystic acne around the jaw and hairline and helped smooth the overall appearance of my skin.
Pros, it doesn’t have a noticeable scent, or even that heinous, “scent free” chemical scent. It applies smoothly, the 0.5oz tube lasts a long time and it’s easy to get …Read more
This is an amazing mask/scrub to use 1-3 times a week. If you have very sensitive skin I would avoid this scrub as the sugar crystals are very coarse and might lead to excessive redness and irritation.
I've been using the mask for about two weeks now and my skin has gotten noticeably smoother and stubborn blackheads on my chin have gone away.
When I use this scrub I …Read more
I love this shampoo/conditioner. I have naturally oily hair and my ends do tend to get split ends and be dry because I usually "fix up" my natural waves in the morning with a curling iron. The scent is very fresh and clean, it reminds me of a shampoo scent my Nana would wash my hair with when I was little.
I do think this could weigh fine/thin hair down, I have thick, wavy …Read more
I bought this as an easy to wear "foundation" for work. In the winter I don't want my skincare to be fussy. I want my skin to stay hydrated and for it to be protected from the sun. (I remember this when it came out 3 or 4 years ago but never tried it) I bought the shade 110 Light/Medium and it is fairly accurate to my skin tone. I don't believe this particular shade has a pink …Read more
