I am a mom of 3 boys who loves beauty and skincare. I love trying out new products and sharing my thoughts and reviews.
Moisturize You’re Eyes
I got the chance to try the Eye Base primer/moisturizer by @bobbibrown. This eye base is very creamy and has a rich , not too thick texture. It’s super tacky though and doesn’t dry well for a base for eyeshadow. But for a more glittery look, this base works rather well because it holds onto the glitter and doesn’t budge!! I do, however, LOVE it as a plain and simple eye cream. It’s super hydrating and creamy. I hav enjoyed using it at night time along with my bedtime routine. ⭐️BOBBI BROWN - Vitamin Enriched Eye Base

Potent & Powerful
Introducing the newest member to the Peter Thomas Roth skincare family, the “Potent C Power Scrub”. This facial scrub is so POWERFUL - it literally “packs a punch” with THD Ascorbate Vitamin C (An ultra-stable scientific breakthrough form of Vitamin C that is 50 X more powerful than traditional Vitamin C). . 🍊 It also has an assortment of multicolored beads: . 🧡 Orange Vitamin C beads 🖤 Black Jojoba Spheres 🤍 White Cocoa Butter Beads 💛 Gold Jojoba Beads . Which all helps to brighten, exfoliate, polish, nourish and condition your skin. I personally love this face scrub because you don’t need to really “scrub” the product onto your skin for it to work. I have super sensitive skin and don’t really use face scrubs that much but with this one, gentle circular motions worked best for my skin. Plus I didn’t leave it on my face for too long either. I could really see and feel the difference in my skin after just one use. It definitely exfoliated and polished my skin - giving it a nice and healthy glow. I think that this new Potent C Power scrub is a invigorating new addition to the PTR family!!! PETER THOMAS ROTH - Potent-C Power Scrub

Soothing & Fun - Minion Style
First lets just admire the super cute packaging by TonyMoly and the fun Minions collection they came out with. I was happy enough to get the chance to try their Eucalyptus Calming Night Mask from this amazing collection and it really is super soothing. The eucalyptus scent is very lovely and not at all overpowering. The texture is so light and creamy and quickly absorbs into the skin upon application. I tried it a few nights and never once got any sort of irritating reaction from it. It really left my skin calm and fresh feeling. 🌿 Eucalyptus helps gently work to detoxify and calm breakouts while soothing and hydrating the skin. 🌿 Eucalyptus also helps fight aging and will help build a protective barrier against harsh environmental properties.

Soothe Your Skin
This Miracle Seed Essence by @primera.us is such a nice added bonus to my skincare routine. I get flaky dry and irritated patches along the sides of my face (more by my ears) and when I started using this essence for review... I saw a dramatic change in those dry patches. They were more hydrated and smooth and less flaky. A little goes a super long way especially with their cotton pads that come with it. Even though it’s on the pricey side, I would say that this product is well worth the price value because of the size of the bottle AND it comes with cotton pads!!! It would be awesome if it was at a different price value without the pads.... just to give comparison but for now it’s only sold with the pads. I’ve heard many people say that it was harsh on their sensitive skin - but I didn’t have any bad reactions at all. No redness.... no burning or irritation. I only use it a few times a week... especially on the super dry days!! primera - Miracle Seed Essence

Smooth As Butter
Say hello to @spascience and their Echo Anti Microbial Sonic Makeup Brush. The bristles are so super soft and the brush is easy to put together AND break apart for traveling purposes. It comes with its own charging power cord. Even though it has 3 speed settings, I have only really used the first “lighter” and softer setting to apply makeup. It really uses a “light hand approach” when applying foundation. Giving it a smooth look when applying and it easily spreads the foundation all over the skin without caking. . Check out these amazing facts about this sonic makeup brush: * Sonic Technology * Antimicrobial * 3 Speed Settings * Ergonomic Design * Detachable Brush Head I really did enjoy this makeup brush as it reminds me of the makeup brushes I’ve always used before BUT it feels even better on the skin. With this sonic makeup brush, I don’t have to put any pressure on the brush to get it to blend or move around. The first setting has to be my favorite just because it’s the slowest out of the 3 speeds and feels more natural to me. This makeup brush is definitely a game changer for me!!!! SPA SCIENCES - ECHO
Scrub Your Scalp Clean
This Root Energizing Rosemary Scalp Scrub by @aromatica is such a soothing scrub cleanser for your scalp. With the Dead Sea salts, it helps exfoliate the skin while removing waste accumulated in pores. Both me and my son love the light rosemary scent and the way the scrub tingles when we use it. It’s just a light tingle upon scrubbing application. It’s super easy to rinse out and really makes the skin feel refreshed and soothing. We both suffer from eczema and dandruff in our family and it’s really hard to find great products that work well for our skin AND not irritate it. This scalp scrub is definitely worth a 5 ⭐️ rating for sure. Swipe to see the lovely texture of the product in my photos too. . AROMATICA - Rosemary Scalp Scrub

worth the hype?
This exfoliant first blew up on the app TikTok from al the great reviews. I’ve heard such amazing things about this brand and product so i thought i’d try it myself. As you can see on the bottle, this product has 30% AHA which can be very dangerous to the skin if not used correctly. The most time you should use this is once a week for a max of 10 minutes, nothing more. Looking at other ingredients on the list, it is filled with great ingredients that would be very beneficial to your skin. It claims to be “an exfoliating solution to help fight visible blemishes and improve the look of skin texture and radiance” (from sephora) I have normal skin which is one of the three skin types this is made for, oily combination and normal, and honestly I haven’t seen much greatness from this product. From my personal experience it does not seem to exfoliate or help fight any acne. I do have faith in this product because the ingredients look great, i think it might just be my skin. Lots of reviews i see talk about it leaving their skin red afterwards, which i did experience as well. however, the redness went away quickly and was not there by morning. i dont this i will be personally purchasing this product again, but i am going to use the rest of it for the next month or two to see if anything changes.

I was a bit hesitant to try this blush, because it looks so vivid and bright on the pan, and IT IS freaking pigmented BUT blends like a dream and you only need a little bit to look pretty and flushed 🍓 It’s creamy, pigmented, blends beautifully and it’s affordable! And the packaging 😍 how cute is it? COLOURPOP - Colourpop Pressed Powder Blush

Drug store holy grail plus Dupe!
Every since I’ve started makeup professionally I have used this medium cocoa powder for contouring/bronzing. I love it so much because it is NOT orange pigmented! Which can look very unnatural. It is very brown based which leaves a nice shadow effect. That’s what we are going for! Well after my 10th time buying this pallet just for the medium powder and bake powder (leaving the other two completely untouched) I decided to look around more. That’s when I discovered this product!!! Milani silky matte bronzing powder 💚🙌 So much more affordable for the same results! Easy to apply 3x the product A third of the price Much more compact/ travel friendly MILANI - Silky Matte Bronzing Powder Too Faced - Cocoa Contour Kit Sets on skin so beautifully Blends perfectly All day wear Not tested on animals What’s not to love!? I will not go without this product in my bag.
