An amazing and affordable sunscreen!
An amazing and affordable sunscreen!
Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 30 The sunscreen obsession continues... part 2. I love the Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer and body lotions. I find that the light, gel-like consistency works super well with my acne-prone skin and since it’s oil-free, I know it probably won’t clog up my pores. I’ve been on the lookout for this for a while because I swear it wasn’t available in Canadian drugstores until recently but maybe I just completely missed it.... The good: It’s oil-free and non-comedogenic and I haven’t had any breakouts since trying this out. This sunscreen helps block UVA and UVB rays. It has the same consistency as their hydro boost moisturizer so it glides on so easily and doesn’t leave even a bit of white cast, you don’t even need to rub it in to avoid white residue. It absorbs quickly into the skin. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy. Since this glides on easily and you don’t need to run it in, it’s ideal for re-applying throughout the day, even if you have makeup on. As long as you’re not wearing too much powder, I don’t think you’ll have any issues layering this on. Its super accessible! It was $10.99 CAD and you can find it at several drugstores. This is such a plus for me because being in Canada I usually need to order my other favourite sunscreens online and wait at least two weeks. The not so good: I really wish they had a fragrance free option. Not that it makes a big deal for me everyday, but if my skin is ever feeling sensitive, I know I will probably reach for a different sunscreen for that reason. I noticed that in one area of my face I had some very minor pilling. Not a big deal and it didn’t mess up my makeup, but I do just want to point it out in case this is really important to other people. Is it worth it? Yes. It’s super affordable and you get a pretty good big bottle compared to my other favourite k beauty sunscreens. Even if you don’t even up using this on your face. I think you’ll definitely be able to use this on your hands and body throughout the summer. Will I repurchase? I might hold out to see if they make a fragrance-free version before purchasing another. But even if they don’t I can see myself making this my go-to body sunscreen for the summer time. But if anyone has any other drugstore suggestions, I’d love to hear them! Ps my skin is combination and acne prone :)

SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist My story: I am a big fan of sweet scents like vanilla, especially for fragrance. And I feel like everyone and their mother talks about the bum bum cream scent. I really don’t need another cream / lotion right now so I decided to opt for the fragrance mist instead. And the smell is just *cue drooling* 🤤! The good: - the smell is decadent and sweet, but also somehow light, so perfect for every day - the notes of caramel and pistachio are so yummy - and it doesn’t some off like a fake, chemical-y smell - it does smell almost exactly like the bum bum cream The not so good: - the first ingredient is SD alcohol 40-B which is a fairly controversial ingredient. While it does help create a nice and light product, it also has been know to dry out skin and even damage the skin barrier (although studies are still ongoing). For this reason I make sure to keep this most far away from my face and only mist my wrists and sometimes shoulders. - I wish the scent lasted a little bit longer. It doesn’t fade fast! But it definitely does fade throughout the day. Is it worth it? I think my love for the smell is swaying my opinion, but yes I think it’s worth it. If your hesitant like I was, I would try the mini size first. Would I repurchase? I probably will repurchase because this has become my everyday scent! But I’ll buy the bigger size since you get more bang for your buck. Or I’ll finally invest in the bum bum cream instead. Side note: I saw these are currently sold out at Sephora 😢

NEOGEN DERMALOGY - NEOGEN DERMALOGY DAY-LIGHT PROTECTION SUNSCREEN SPF 50+/PA+++ My story: I am ashamed to say I wasn’t always a sunscreen lover. While I did look for products with SPF like a moisturizer or foundation, I rarely bought actual sunscreen unless I was actually going to a beach. But after hearing Charlotte Cho speak about this sunscreen on a podcast (I think it was Gloss Angeles) I decided to give it a try. And a SPF obsession was born! My experience with the product: I just feel like this is so much better than any other sunscreen I have ever used from the drugstore. Although it comes out white, it spreads so nicely and doesn’t leave a white cast at all! It wears incredibly well under makeup and it almost soaks into the skin. And absolutely no greasy residue.. if anything I think I look a little more glowy after. It felt breath-able and I didn’t breakout at all ✅✅ After I tried this product, I knew I had to try a couple other favourite SPFs from Soko Glam or YesStyle (I might have an order on the way here now). So now I’m always on the lookout for the new, best sunscreen. I’m converted! How I use it: Okay this is the hard part. Because on the one hand I was to slather a bunch of this everywhere. On the other hand I want this product to last as long as possible! So what I do is a take about a nickel sized amount for my face and then a nickel sized amount for my neck (I have a separate spf for my body). If I ever feel like that’s not enough, I’m go back in with a little more. Worth it? YES. It’s a little pricey, but I think investing in a good sunscreen is really going to pay off in the long run. And I’ve been using it consistently for three months and I still have some left. Will I repurchase? Yes! But I might wait until I finish my two new sunscreen products before replacing... maybe. Ps I have combination, acne prone skin :)

This ALMOST lives up to the hype
This ALMOST lives up to the hype
If you watch TikTok, you’ve probably seen this. And I think it ALMOST lives up the hype. But like a lot of other people have said, you need to be careful when you use this. The good: - I do feel like my skin almost instantly looks smoother and brighter after I take it off and the morning after I use it I definitely feel like my skin has a glow. - I have noticed my acne scars have started to fade (after 6 uses). It’s definitely not a one and done though. - I feel like my texture and pores do look significantly better after using this. - I love how it washes off so easily! Some masks require you to be a bit tougher with your skin, but this will wash right off with some water. - I have never experienced any peeling / dryness. The bad: - It stings. I hate to say it but it’s true. It stings the moment I put this on and I don’t have sensitive skin. How I use it: I make sure to use this at most biweekly and I never leave it on for more than 10 mins. Is it worth it? I think it’s worth giving it a shot! It’s not too expensive and I do think the results are really nice. I’ve used it 6 times and it still looks like I have a full bottle, so I do think you get bang for your buck. Just patch test first!! Will I repurchase? Honestly, I’m not sure. I had to essentially smuggle this one into Canada since they don’t sell this product here. I’ll have to see after I’m done the full bottle (I’ve been using it for the last two months so far). Ps I have combination, acne prone skin :)

It’s probably no surprise now that Glossier Cloud Paint is an amazing product. It’s one of their best sellers and a cult favourite. Mostly I wanted to post this because I think the combination of the two cloud paint colours is absolutely stunning and I want everyone I know to try it :) My story: I actually used to hate blush. Completely hate it. Never bought it and I bet to date it’s the product I have owned the least for all makeup. I always has bronzer and nothing else on my cheeks. So I never really understood why everyone had a favourite blush. But I’m a huge fan of Glossier and I kept seeing everyone post about it and I finally caved. And now I’m hooked! I use cloud paint almost everyday. It’s gives you such a nice and natural tint to your cheeks. At first I was a bit turned off by how pink “Puff” made my cheeks but I learnt to sheer it out on the back of my hand before applying. I also find it lasts really well throughout the day. They say blush is usually the first thing to go from your makeup, but I think cloud paint is probably the exception. Note I don’t have very oily or dry skin, just combination and acne prone so I’m not too sure how those other skin types do with a cream blush like this. How I use it: My two favourite shades are Puff and Beam. But my favourite way to apply blush right now is to actually mix the two! It creates to most beautiful peachy pink shade and it gives your skin that kind of colour that you get after a day at the beach. It’s warm and girly and just helps brighten your whole complexion. Worth it? Yes. You really don’t need a lot so the tube lasts you a long time. Especially if you mix the two, you’ll be using them both for a long time. Would I repurchase it? Heck yes, I’m almost out of “Puff” and now that I’m obsessed with mixing the two of these colours together, I can’t imagine not ordering a replacement from glossier. Glossier. - Cloud Paint :)

Dewy goodness and a natural makeup hack!
Dewy goodness and a natural makeup hack!
Glossier. - Futuredew My story: I love dewy skin. I love that dewy skin is a trend now. It’s just so youthful and glowy and I feel like it’s look so much better on the skin than went matte makeup was super popular. For context, I usually always go for a more natural makeup because I just think it looks better on me and lasts better throughout the day. I would rather look like I have no makeup versus cakey makeup. I also am a huge fan of the glossier brand so when I saw this I almost immediately bought (after of course waiting for the first wave of reviews to come out). My experience with the product: This makes me so so happy. The trick is you just need a little bit! Like the tiniest bit. And then you just smooth it on the points of your face where you want to look glowy. I put this on right after my sunscreen and focus on my cheekbones and Cupid’s bow but I also kinda just put it everywhere. And voila you are a dewy dewy dumpling without looking greasy. I love how it reflects the light in such a natural way and it looks like you glow within. I know a couple people on social media mentioned that this product broke them out. I am typically very acne prone and thankfully have had no issues what so ever. Worth it? Definitely worth it. I have had this for four months and I’m not even half way through the bottle. Would I repurchase it? Absolutely. Already planning to pick this up in my next glossier order. :) Bonus, natural makeup hack: Lately, I’ve been adding just a drop of this to my cloud paint and it makes the most beautiful light blush with the most lovey sheen. And I actually think doing this makes it easier to apply the cloud paint because it just glides on. It seriously looks like you’re not even wearing makeup. My favourite mix = beam cloud paint, puff cloud paint and a tiny bit of future dew.

NEW Summer Fridays Lip Balm
NEW Summer Fridays Lip Balm
This is the new Lip Butter Balm by Summer Fridays. It can be used during the day or as a lip mask at night and is meant to hydrate lips and add a shine. My lips get dry fairly easily and this is amazing. It is a clear, thick gel texture that glides on smoothly and lightly smells of vanilla. It packs a huge punch of hydration and makes my lips so shiny without feeling sticky at all. I wore this overnight just to see if I could still feel it there in the morning and I could! I think that’s quite impressive. Overall I think this is an adorable launch. I love the packaging and can’t wait to keep using this regularly. Five stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm

New fav winter lip balm?!
New fav winter lip balm?!
{What does it claim to do?} A vegan, petroleum, & beeswax-free lip balm that delivers long lasting hydration & shine. Perfect for a lip mask replacement. Highlighted ingredients; wakame algae-to help restore lips firmness & plumpness. Rose absolute- a calming natura scent that helps hydrate & retain moisture Hyaluronic acid- to help smooth & plump lines & hydrate lips {Texture/Consistency?} It is a very thick creamy balm texture. {My thoughts?} I got this from Sephora recently thanks to my Cherie fam, And I’m obsessed! The packing is super nice & luxurious, & I love how it is pink. My lips are always dry and chapped and I always use Bite beauty or Murad and that helps but it takes a couple days to see results. The results from this were immediate, it is my new favorite lip mask. My lips instantly looked hydrated & plumped. I have been using this every night for the past 3 weeks and I’m in love!! The scent is so nice and light not too heavy, of rose & honey. The texture is nice it makes my lips feel soft & look glossy. It doesn’t feel too sticky or like Vaseline. It was around $18-20 and defiantly worth the price. My life saver for the holidays lately. Try it out! BIOSSANCE - Squalane+ Rose Vegan Lip Balm

Glow Recipe Watermelon Lip POP Review
Glow Recipe Watermelon Lip POP Review
I received this as a gift in exchange for a review and I am quite impressed! This is the @glowrecipe Watermelon Glow Lip Pop. First of all, the packaging is adorable. I love the little box it comes with as well. Watermelon is my all time favorite fruit and it has a wonderful watermelon scent which is amazing! It reminds me of watermelon jolly ranchers and I am all for it! This is apparently a three in one product! It is a scrub, treatment balm, AND a lip tint! It does have tiny little particles (coconut flower sugar crystals) that do aid in exfoliating and at first I was worried that it might hurt my lips. But it also melts onto the lips and creates a very hydrating barrier with the balm. I love that this has AHA which isn't too common in lip balms like this. My lips felt very hydrated and glowy! The pink color does seep through with multiple layers and I really do think that this is a phenomenal day time lip balm. I love anything watermelon and this was no exception! I cannot wait to see more from Glow Recipe! 5/5 recommend bc it definitely is a unique lip balm 🤗 GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop

The Perfect Sunscreen
The Perfect Sunscreen
I’m a die-hard Neutrogena HydroBoost fan! Their sunscreen is one of the most on the market. I took this on a road test two years ago during Coachella — where’s it’s hot as hell. I love how this sunscreen feels like it’s good for your skin, other than just protecting it. It smells nice and fresh and melts into the skin without any white residue. My personal opinion is the best sunscreen is one you enjoy wearing so you continue to apply it, and this one is one I keep going back to. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30
