I've gotten to an age where my skin runs on the dry side, and I live in a climate where the temperatures drop to -40 degrees so I face the freezing weather outside (which can cause dry skin) AND the heaters indoors (which can cause dry skin). I also use retinols, vitamin C and acids which sometimes can make things worse, and when I misuse these ingredients, it can make things horrible. …Read more

Preface: I use this as a facial cleanser.

I've been trying to pare down my skincare regime and stick to simple and gentle products. I didn't want a cleanser that would dry out my skin, and I heard good things about it from one of my favorite YouTubers - Karima McKimmie so I decided to give it a try.

There is really nothing wrong about this cleanser. It is a …

Although I'm a bit of a skincare junkie, and I'm new to Vitamin C. Prior to this, I was experimenting more with acids, vitamin B, and retinols, until I finally made my way to Vitamin C. This was my first Vitamin C serum and I absolutely love it.

I use this in the morning exclusively as I use retinol at night. I actually LOVE putting this stuff on. It has the viscosity …

I originally went to the GA counter to try on their now discontinued liquid bronzer. I was very weary of bronzers that were too orange, or just too dark for my skintone, and GA is my go-to for base products. While trying the liquid bronzer, the sale associate also showed me how I could use these new Neo Nude powders as a bronzer as well. While I did not buy it on the spot, it left quite an …Read more

Bottle-less shampoos and conditioners have been trending, and I was excited to give them a try. I have straight, untreated, Asian hair that reaches down to my bum, so conditioner is a MUST. To be honest, I didn't have high expectations for this conditioner but it turned out to be a happy favorite. I should also mention, that I do not like silicone heavy hair products that give your hair …Read more

So the idea of bottle-less shampoos has been very trendy lately, so when I ran out of shampoo, I was excited to give this a try. For reference, I have straight, untreated, Asian hair that reaches down to my bum. I should also mention, that I do not like silicone heavy hair products that give your hair that slippery feeling. I tend to get dry scalp, so I told the sales associate I needed …Read more

This little product is definitely something I never thought I needed until I had it. I never even thought about getting a sunscreen in oil format, let alone a oil in stick format. I've seen/used sunscreens in liquid form, powder form, stick form, but never quite like this. For a while I was embracing a more matte type of skin, but I was noticing my skin was becoming parched more and more …Read more

I was lucky enough to pick this up during a sale, but its gone back to full price on the website. Let's start off with my skin color which is considered fair. Currently, with a tan I'm about a 3 in Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation, or around a 4 in Giorgio Armani Power Fabric.

The bronzer has quite a neutral undertone, and is perfect for my fair skin at the moment. It …

Apr/18/2018

This is T3's latest hair dryer, and although I've only owned this for a few weeks, I feel compelled to write a review since I haven't come across many. I owned the T3 Featherweight 2 and it lasted me a little over 4 years before it spontaneously died. I was a little disappointed by this fact because my previous CHI hair dryer lasted 10 years but the technology in this model was …Read more

Apr/05/2018

The Ordinary was my introduction into retinols about two years ago. I started with the Advanced Retinoids 2% (now renamed Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion) which did not cause any irritation, but results take much longer to show. When I finished that bottle, I thought my skin would be able to tolerate the Retinol 1% (now discontinued)(it came in a tube, was silicone based and was the only other …Read more
