It’s NOT sticky and kept my lips so soft and smooth. I obv recommendation this and will definitely repurchase this baby! nooni - Applebutter Lip Mask

EMPTY- COULD BE BETTER
Claims to control frizziest while moisturizing your hair to combat dryness. The texture is definitely creamy and sinks well into your hair. Again, like the shampoo that I reviewed, this conditioner/masque wasn’t anything extraordinary - but it just got the job done of what I needed the average conditioner to do. It smells just the shampoo, but I wanted to add in that the scent doesn’t linger for longer than a day which is kinda sad because it smells pretty good! I wouldn’t recommend it because there are some conditioners that leave your hair ‘WOW soft’ which is also why I wouldn’t repurchase it. I keep referencing this as a conditioner even tho it’s a “masque” but it didn’t condition my hair as well as masks usually do. And so i gave it a 3/5 🙂 #Project Beauty - Hairgurt strawberry banana masque[products]#[ThreeStars]
Project Beauty-Hairgurt Strawberry-Banana Smoothing Yogurt Hair Mask
Tames unruly, dry and frizzy hair with it’s liquid-cream texture and yummy strawberry and banana scent. This shampoo was alright and wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. It didnt do any damage to my hair but it also wasn’t the most hydrating and moisturizing. It was fun to use once in a while, but I wouldn’t recommend it or repurchase 🙂🥱 i gave it a 4/5 bc it smells super good and it was just youe average shampoo tbh Project Beauty - Hairgurt Strawberry Banana Shampoo

| R+Co Centerpiece All-in-One Elixir - $32 | Claims: helps detangle, fight frizz, and hydrate So i used this on second or third day hair to help refresh my waves from the day before. It ended up making my hair wet and sticky :/ and just ://// you feel me. It comes out as a liquid spray. Idk what the point of this product is honestly and maybe i havent given it a fair chance since i was disappointed after the first use. I don’t think i would recommend this or repurchase it. Maybe the potential of the product is there and i just don’t see it which is why i gave it a 2/5 R+Co - Centerpiece All-in-One Elixir Spray

EMPTY - FAVE SPF EVER
This is my third bottle and is my favorite sunscreen in the wooorld! Claims: non-greasy and oil free (yuh) to keep your face hydrated (YUH) and protected (absolutely). It doesn’t break me out and literally gives my skin the most dewy appearance 🤩 it does not have a white cast and actually turns clear after rubbing it into your skin. The texture is a gel-like consistency! I usually opt for the spf 50 but i was in desperate need for SPF during my situation so bought this one on a whim since it was the only one at Ulta at the time. HIGHLY recommend and would definitely repurchase. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

| R+Co - Death Valley Shampoo | Claims: absorbs oil and provides a textured look After seeing this as one of their #1 sellers on their website, i was SO excited to try this out. Except this did absolutely NOTHING for my hair. This didn’t leave a white film on my hair like some dry shampoos do. I have fine hair which i figured is easier for dry shampoo to tackle and get that oil out. But it just wasnt the case for me and looked as if i didnt even apply anything at all. I wouldn’t recommend this since I’ve had better experiences with cheaper dry shampoos, which means I also will not be repurchasing.

Hyperpigmentation treatment !!!
The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I couldn’t wait to try this and I used it last night and I already see results . It’s a high strength vitamin and mineral blemish formula . It’s light weight , not runny and easy to apply to skin. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I’ve heard very good things about this product . I’m saving it to use for the summer for hydration . Right now I want to stick to creams due to the weather. I paid $14 for both products . Talk about affordable effective skin care !

Fight hyperpigmentation with Youth to
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner The Youth to The People kombucha power toner is marketed as a toner for smoothing skin, minimizing the appearance of pores, firming the skin, and lightening hyperpigmentation with its 11% acid blend. This product is labeled to be best for anyone dealing with dull or uneven texture, or loss of skin firmness and elasticity. The toner is s very lightweight liquid, and a little bit goes a long way. I put about 5 drops onto a cotton pad and gently swipe it across my face. The suggested use of this product is 3 to 5 times per week, working up to nightly use. I personally don’t feel the need to use this that many days a week. I have been using it 2 times a week for the past month and I feel that’s often enough for me. Some people claim to experience a little tingling with this product, as it does have a bit of a higher acid concentration. I didn’t feel any tingling, my skin did get a little red but it went away after a moment. I do find that if you use too much product, it can make your skin feel a little sticky after, so be careful not to oversaturate the cotton pad. Other than the very brief redness, I haven’t had any adverse effects. After using this consistently, any post inflammatory hyperpigmentation I get lightens so much faster and better than before I started using it. Besides the fact that this toner works well for me, it’s also vegan, cruelty free, and contained in recyclable glass packaging. I would definitely recommend this product to others, and will be buying it again. I took one star off the rating because at $38 for 4oz. this product is a lot more costly than similar exfoliating toners.

Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub
First impressions - I really enjoyed using product! It’s such a unique one too! As you can see, the consistency is quite runny, but it seeps into your skin during application and in seconds, you’ll start to see the dry skin pill up. I think next time I will use a bit more of the product - I wasn’t expecting it to sink into the skin; I thought it would more sit on top of the skin, but it doesn’t. It’s very easy to wash off; there is no residue left behind at all - just clear, fresh, glowy skin! 🌟 And I’m happy to report that there is NO strong scent in this product; if you’re familiar with Huda Beauty products then you’ll know a lot of their products are heavily scented, so I was skeptical about this product because I don’t care for a lot of fragrance or scents in my skincare. I haven’t researched into whether this is completely fragrance free or not yet though! HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub

Can’t stop using this blush 🍑
Urban Outfitters gifted me the Freck BEAUTY - CHEEKSLIME Lip + Cheek Tint with Plant Collagen in the shade Cuffed and omg, I can’t stop using it! You would have to rip this off my cold, death hands because it’s just too good. It definitely reminds me of Glossier’s cloud paint in texture and wear time, and they’re in about the same price range I believe so not really a ‘dupe’ but just a similar product by a similar brand. The shade cuffed is a warm, peachy shade that o really love on my skin tone. It’s formulated with plant collagen to help skin look plump and healthy and blends so well! It’s easy to accidentally over apply it since it’s also very pigmented so I like just doing a small dot on each cheek and blending it in with a brush or sponge. Overall I think it’s a beautiful product and I definitely recommend it ✨

FAVE PERFUME: LE LABO BERGAMOTE 22
LE LABO - BERGAMOTE 22 eau de parfum Woody & Aromatic Notes: - Amber - Musk - Grapefruit - Vetiver - Petitgrain - Bergamot - Vanilla - Orange Blossom - Cedar My story: I’ve always wanted a perfume from Le Labo and I knew I didn’t want Santal 33 because everyone already has it. I wanted something fresh and light that could blend with the natural chemical balance in my skin to create something soft and recognizable. This was the one. I love how fresh and citrus-y it smells once I spray it but I love how it changes into a deeper, warmer scent as time goes on. This is probably my signature scent✨

FAVE PERFUME: BYREDO GYPSY WATER
BYREDO - Gypsy Water Eau de Parfum Woody & Aromatic Top Notes: - Bergamot - Lemon - Pepper - Juniper Middle Notes: - Incense - Pine Needles - Orris Root Base Notes: - Amber - Vanilla - Sandalwood My Story: This is the newest perfume to my favorites collection. I’ve had my eye on Byredo fragrances for a long time just because I feel like each scent is so unique. But because they’re so expensive, I visited the Byredo counter at least 10 times before finally deciding to get Gypsy Water. It smelled the most enticing to me! I love this scent so much it’s so warm and woody on my skin and I literally can’t stop sniffing myself when I have it on! I also get lots of compliments when I wear it- so it’s definitely a noticeable scent!
