Glossier Priming Moisturizer
I have heard many, many people over the past few years tell me that this product is not worth it and that i clogs your pores. Last month, I received it in an Ipsy bag and wow...I love it!! It’s the perfect moisturizer for evenings, lightweight but still creamy and “nighttime-ish”. This rich moisturizer sells for $35 for 1.7floz...which isn’t terrible. The Glossier Site says that this moisturizer is meant to reduce redness, intensely hydrate, nourish, and oxygenate the skin, and it does just that! Glossier in general is cruelty free, hypo-allergenic, paraben free, and dermatologist tested which is amazing!

Skin&Co Truffle Therapy Face Gommage
This is one of the best exfoliates that I have ever used!! It is sort of high priced ($28 for 1floz), but it works like a charm! I saw such a large difference in my face after just one use! I am not incredibly happy with the fact that it contains perfume...but other than that, it’s life changing!

JJ Young Pore Glow Mask
JJ young - Pore Glow Mask Another incredible mask that I received in an Ipsy bag. Reasons that it’s my favorite: 1.) Good price point ($9.49) 2.) Minimal, incredible Ingredients! Kaolin: eliminates impurities, sebum, and keratin; Panthenol and Menthol: tightens pores; and Pomegranate, Fig, Gingko, and Mulberry Extracts: brightens skin tone. 3.) Made my skin look like glass...i’m in love! 4.) NO FRAGRANCE Reasons that I’m not too keen on it: 1.) One ingredient that I’m not very excited about it Olive Oil. Olive oil, personally, makes me break out and makes my skin very oily. Thankfully, it is not incredibly present in the mask. 2.) Has to be refrigerated! This is not a problem because I do own a skincare fridge, but this makes it not able to travel with:’( (And this is one that I would love to take with me on vacations).

Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Cleanser
Glow recipe overall is a pretty expensive brand. I mean, not as overly priced as some, but it is still expensive. I got this cleanser as a gift in one of my Ipsy bags and decided to try it out. I made a 30 day vlog of how my skin reacted to it, and how well it was working, and if I would recommend the product or not (this video is not edited yet or posted, but I will tell you when it is:)). GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser This product is not life changing. Yes, it is a very nice cleanser but it’s no different than the ones I have used in the past. It kept my skin clear and soft and that’s it. I looked back at the ingredients after using it for a month and was not happy to see that fragrance was listed there. The other ingredients are incredible: blueberry extract, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Sodium Chloride, and Peony Root Extract. The most exciting part was seeing that it was in the “Clean at Sephora” section! It is one of Glow Recipes less expensive products too ($34 for 5.41oz)!

The Ordinary Review
Overall, I love the ordinary. They are a brand that is affordable and has no bs in their products! Most companies add so many different products that contradict each other and then the product alone just DOES👏NOT👏WORK👏 This brand is the opposite, it only puts in main products. 1.) The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA is a very good product for its price point ($6.80). It is not a product you should be using everyday! I use this once a week and that’s enough for me. It is a very harsh product but it definitely does the job! On their site they make sure to say that you should do a patch test first and slowly start to ease into using it, aka DO NOT just slap a bunch of it on your face the minute you buy it! 2.) The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane is another really great product for its price point ($7.90). Personally, it is not one of my favorites by them. It is a very nice oil for the face but it seemed to make my face very very oily (and i have normal to dry skin). Their site does say “Mimics the skin’s natural oils”. This product is not only for the face, it is can also be used for your hair! 3.) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% This product is my holy grail. It tighten the look of my pores, hydrated my skin, and overall just made my skin look and feel so much better. I use it three times a week, right after cleansing my face. WOULD 100% RECOMMENED!!!

Tatcha Water Cream
I received this mini sized product as a gift at Sephora last month. First of all, I have seen the hype over this product but i was NEVER going to buy it due to its outrageous price ($68 for 1.7oz). I thought that it was just a normal product that people hyped up for absolutely no reason. Then, I tried it out...and WOW! This is the first product that I fell in love with! It’s lightweight, it made my makeup application BOMB ASF, it evened out my skin tone, and it overall just felt incredible on my skin! Again, just like my last product I reviewed, I do not agree with the fragrance component. Now, this water cream has a very very very small amount but it’s still there and it doesn’t have to be. Overall, I’m in love with this product and I definitely recommend buying it, it’s so worth it, trust me:)TATCHA - The Water Cream
