YTTP Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream Review
[PRODUCT REVIEW] Moisturizer YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream Vegan Cruelty free Gluten free What it is: A lightweight gel-cream with Kale extracts (phytonutrients, vitamin C/E/K), green tea extracts (antioxidants) and hyaluronic acid. It claims to help fight free radicals and also replenish and support healthy skin barrier. $48/60mL (2 oz). Texture: Lightweight gel cream. Not greasy. Absorbs fast. Smells light and refreshing. My experience: It was one of my favorite moisturizers back when my skin was more oily and I didn’t have to deal with NYC winter nor staying inside with heat blowing on my face 24/7. That being said, I still like it a lot. I love the texture and the scent. It helps with my redness too. I think it’ll be a great summer moisturizer for me (mid 20s, combination textbook skin). But right now, it doesn’t lock in as much moisture as I need it to.

Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner Review
[PRODUCT REVIEW] Toner INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner Alcohol free Vegan Cruelty free Gluten free Contains antioxidants Hyaluronic acid and aloe vera based What it is: A toner/essence spray that protects skin against environmental stressors with antioxidants and also hydrates, soothes, refreshes, and primes the skin. Texture: Lightweight, not sticky, absorbs fast. My experience: One of my favorite toners! It’s my second bottle emptied and it will stay in my rotation. It’s not a miracle product. But I truly enjoy the light and refreshing scent and how it calms my skin and provides an extra layer of hydration. Plus it’s packed with antioxidants (third one on the ingredient list after water and aloe vera extracts)! I use it both AM and PM after cleansing and before serums.

LUSH Bath Bomb: Intergalactic 🌌
Here it is! The one bath bomb we’ve probably all seen before in Lush’s ads: the bath bomb *abstract art.* Intergalactic, this bomb contains peppermint oil, vetivert oil, cedarwood oil, and apparently poppy candy. The scent is light and fresh herbal. It is very glittery, you can see it in the deep blue water, but it’s not plastic glitter. According to Lush’s own website, they use synthetic mica for the sparkle. It is overall a very fun and pleasant bath bomb for me. I don’t mind the glitters because I actually shower after I take a bath so the bath doesn’t leave my skin sparkling. I also need to get the essential oils off my skin to avoid potential irritation. It doesn’t stain my tub but does leave the tub a bit glittery for a short while so that’s something to keep in mind.
Affordable Brow Gel!
L'ORÉAL - Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara in Clear and in Dark Brunette Pros: Tiny brush head, easy to work with on many brow shapes and conditions. I use brow pencils. This has really been keeping my brows in place without smudging and transferring. Affordable with different color options, and in my opinion so much better texture than Glossier. - Boy Brow. Cons: Sometimes leaves a clump. I naturally have black hair so even the dark brunette one doesn’t add much color and volume to my brows on its own.
CAUDALÍE Vinopure Salicylic Acid Serum Review
[PRODUCT REVIEW] Serum CAUDALIE - Vinopure Natural Salicylic Acid Pore Minimizing Serum Vegan Contains alcohol Contains natural ingredients Contains essential oils What it is: A light weight face serum that contains naturally derived salicylic acid, niacinamide, antioxidants, and a complex of essential oils. It’s supposed to address blackheads, pores, breakout and excess oil. Texture: Lightweight serum. My experience: This has been overall a slightly disappointing product for me. I really really enjoyed its texture and smell and it has helped with my redness and oiliness when it was still warm. But other than that, it didn’t help much with my texture at all. As aware as I’m now of how much potentially irritating ingredients it contains, it didn’t cause problems for me because I don’t have very sensitive skin. But it’s not thw best to use as the colder months came. I don’t think I’ll buy this product again.
