FAVORITE CRUELTY-FREE PERFUME 🥰
I tend to forget to use perfume almost all of the time so I appreciate having an easy to travel perfume with me anywhere I go and also this perfume is definitely one of my favorite scents! : I’ve had Bailly Fragrances - Brilliance[FiveStars] perfume for about 2 years now. And I highly recommend this perfume. As I am trying to be cruelty-free with my skincare & beauty products, I try to do the same with my perfumes. This brand is crueltyfree, vegan, and helps the community— they donate $5 from every purchase to Girl Power Project. ••• From my experience, I feel like this perfume lasts for a long time! It smells kind of sweet as well as like the warmth and comfort of a chai latte. It’s scent type is: Warm and sweet Gourmands. And it has notes of: Black Currant, Patchouli, Pear, Vanilla, Praline, and Tonka Bean. ••• I think for $30 (0.30 oz) Roll-On Perfume Oil, this is very worth it! A little goes a long way and it has a very nice strong scent that really lasts the whole day! Definitely giving BAILLY FRAGRANCES - BRILLIANCE [FiveStars] five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as not only is this easy to travel with but the scent smells amazing as well as lasts all day! Wish more people know about this brand because they have been one of my favorite perfumes that I come back all the time to! Also love to leave this in my bag so if I forget to put on perfume, I have this one on me 😍
MY HAIR HERO 💕
I’ve been using this Briogeo Leave-in Spray and I swear it has kept my hair looking healthy & shiny. ••• WHAT IS IT? It is an ultra-lightweight, leave-in conditioning spray fortified with a unique blend of nourishing rosehip, argan, and coconut oils. This is best used for straight, wavy, curly and coils hair types with fine, medium, and/or thick hair texture. This is specified to be used for hair concerns such dryness, frizz and shine. : So far, every time I used this, as I mentioned before, my hair is left looking healthy and shiny. The ingredients— rosehip, argan oil, and coconut oil — definitely helps a lot as they work together to protect the hair from free-radical damage, help address dryness, damage, and frizz. It also helps seal in moisture and protect against any breakage, environmental impurities, and excess heat. ••• Another thing that is a plus is that Briogeo is a clean,vegan & crueltyfree haircare brand. —————————— I really do think that this leave-in spray is very worth it — but to be honest, the brand itself is something I will HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I have the mini size which I believe is $9 (1.75oz) and the full-size is about $20 (5oz) in Sephora. If I were to rate Briogeo - Farewell Frizz Rosarco Milk Leave-In Conditioning Spray I will definitely give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as it has become my HOLY GRAIL for almost a year now.

SEPHORA COLLECTION : Makeup wipes
I used to like these makeup wipes but now they are such a disappointment. This is a cleansing and exfoliating wipes that is used to cleanse and remove makeup. ••• This is great for normal, dry, combination and oily skin types. And it’s skin concerns that it targets are blemishes, dryness and oiliness. : This Green Tea Exfoliating Wipes is supposed to help matiffy and fight the appearance of blemishes. : As for my thoughts, I had high expectations. Every time I used these wipes, my skin felt a little sting in the end. The exfoliating side felt too harsh and I was just simply not happy with this. I do like that it’s soaked and seems to help clean makeup off but I don’t think I would ever repurchase this again. It’s just way too harsh for the skin in my opinion. ••• Even if this is inexpensive and retails for $8, I will still give SEPHORA COLLECTION - Exfoliating Wipes Green Tea Mattifying one star ⭐️ because I feel like there are much better wipes out there. I have been loving Honest Beauty makeup wipes and I think that one is much better! Also this brand isn’t cruelty-free so that’s another reason why I won’t be repurchasing.

PRODUCT EMPTIES: YES TO
YES TO - superblueberries SMOOTHING HAIR CLAY MASK[FourStars] and Yes To - grapefruit VITAMIN C BRIGHTENING HAIR CLAY MASK[ThreeStars] are some new hair mask that I decided to purchase last year and just had the chance to use it recently. These are a one use hair mask sachet and in my opinion, you can really use it more than once if you don’t have long hair (but if you do, it’s definitely more of a one time use only). WHAT IS IT? As I mentioned before, this is a hair mask. HAIR MASKS are deep conditioning treatment that helps to heal damaged hair. They contain rich ingredients such as natural oils and lipids, in heavier concentrations than normal conditioners. Even if your hair is normally healthy with the changing of the seasons it can be hard on your strands. Hair masks are great for everyone to use especially if your someone who use styling tools and/or waits too long in between trims. As you guys can see, the consistency of this hair mask (as shown in the 2nd picture — swipe right ➡️), it’s creamy thick. ••• As for my thoughts, I love them but I just hate the packaging. I wish this mask was a more than 1 time use. I love hair masks that are in a jar or tube because it’s in an eco-friendly packaging. I mean the Superbluberries Smoothing Hair Clay Mask made my hair look voluminous and soft so that’s a really good mask I recommend. However, I was not much of a fan of the Grapefruit Vitamin C brightening Hair Clay Mask. I think it did make my color- treated hair vibrant but I don’t think my hair were as soft as when I had used the Superbluberries Hair Mask. I’m gonna have to try this mask again and see how I feel after the 2nd try. I don’t remember how much I paid when I got this at my local CVS store but according to their website the retail price for these are $2.99. I mean that’s fairly cheap and it is kind of a good price but it will always depend on the quality — if it’s worth it. I rate these hair mask with ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 stars. I actually do have a restock of this because I like to buy 2-3 of it whenever I see something that interests me. But once they are done, will I repurchase? Probably not as there are much better hair masks out there that comes in a better packaging and much better quality in my opinion.

PRODUCT EMPTIES: DRUNK ELEPHANT 🐘
DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer has become one of my HOLY GRAIL and it really makes me sad but happy at the same time that this mini size has become one of my 2020 empties 🥺 WHAT IS IT? This is a protein moisturizer that combines signal peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to improve the look of skin’s tone, texture, and firmness. — from Sephora Website. This is best for normal, dry, combination and oily skin type. And it is said to target dryness, fullness and uneven texture and loss of firmness and elasticity. Not sure if you guys can see some remnants but the texture of this is a white creamy consistency that’s kind of thick but very hydrating — when you put it on your face, it melts right into the skin and it feels really hydrating! ••• As for my thoughts, I’ve reviewed this before and my opinion is still the same. I am in love and obsessed with this moisturizer cream! It has given my skin a nice glow and definitely has not broken me out yet (as I have that combination/acne prone skin) and I’m so very happy! I really do recommend this if you want a good moisturizer cream. I do think it’s very pricey but for the bigger size, it’s definitely worth it! A little bit of this cream seriously goes a long way! The picture is a mini trial size but for a full size, this product retails for $68 (1.69 oz). So far my rating of this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5. I really do love it and I think this is really a great moisturizer especially in the winter times.

OIL CONTROL SKINCARE PRODUCTS
If you get oily throughout the day, especially on your T-zone, this is one product that I highly recommend to always have in your purse. . . I bring this little guy with me everywhere! This is my go to product to get rid of the oil shine that my makeup sometimes give me after few hours. ••• WHAT ARE BLOTTING LINENS & IT’S TARGET CONCERNS? Blotting linens help absorb excess oil and perspiration while preventing blemishes. This specific one is formulated specifically for acne-prone skin. As you guys can see, if you swipe right ➡️ it has a smooth texture similar to paper and it’s kind of like paper, the only difference is this is made to help absorb oils and it’s a skincare product. ••• I’ve bought this blotting paper so many times already and I always go back to this specific one. I just really think it works well and it’s helped control the oiliness in my t-zone and anywhere else. It has a retail value of $10 for 100 sheets. For the price point, I really think it’s worth it and not too expensive. As I mentioned before, I’ve used this so many times and I will always rate boscia - Clear Complexion Blotting Linens 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

😃 FACE OILS, FACE OILS 😃
Hthe skincare diary - The Foundation Oil: Limited Edition NACIFIC - Fresh Herb Origin Serum, 1.69 fl oz (50 ml) GO-TO - Face Hero ave you tried face oils? If yes, how’s your experience? . . Face oil is something that I was afraid of using because you know I’m an oily-ass gal and just havin a thought of applying more oil is just unimaginable and disgusting. Fortunately, these products didn’t give me that super sticky-icky, oily feelin at all! . . I know I’ve talked about this before but my No.1 face oil would be the Face Hero by @gotoskincare ❤️ It just really amazing that I can rave about it all the time! It reduced the appearance of dark spots, acne, and made my skin really glowy and blooming.😍 I just love it so much!!!! . . Second would be by the Foundation Oil by @t.s.k.d ❤️ I don’t use primers because for me, I don’t believe that they make any difference or maybe its because my pores isn’t that big that you could notice it. However, I use this to mix in with my foundation and its just makes the application flawless although I also use this alone at some nights. It didn’t break me out and it made my skin glass-like and soft.☺️ . . Lastly would be the Fresh Herb Origin Serum by @nacific_official ❤️ I know its not Facial Oil though it has a bit oily consistency as you can see there’s a separation between the liquids. Its not as good as their toner which I really love, but I kinda love how it helped me with my breakouts and uneveness when I had my very stressful days. . . That’s all folks. Hope you have a great weekend! ❤️ . . #gotoskincare #tskd #nacific #skincaregoals #skincarecollection #skincarecommunity #skincarenz #n0makeupi00k #fallb3auty #skincareproducts #skinfluencer #skingoals #skincareflatlay #glowupfam #nzbeautyblogger

💐 BLOOMING BOUQUET 💐
Do you wear perfume everytime you go out or only in special occassions? . . I don’t wear perfume everytime. Never spent a single coin on a perfume. I always rely on fabric conditioners to smell good.😆 Bottom line is that if I were to rank my must-buy beauty products, perfume would be at the last place.😆 . . Anyways, this is my only full-sized perfume, @diorparfums “Blooming Bouquet,” which was gifted to me by my mom 2-3 years ago.😆 It smells so good, very flowery ( im no good with describing 😆), long-lasting and you only need 2-3 spritz of this.😍😍😍 . . #dior #diorperfume #diorparfums #fragrancecollection #hypebaebeauty #nzbloggers #bloggerlife #glrifrlends #beautygl0w #vanitygoals #discoverunder10k #floralart #vanitytable #intothegloss #igbeauty #perfumes #nzbeautyblogger

I’d rather get coal than...
I’d rather get coal than this Mario badescu “silver powder”. this is an oil-absorbent powder mask, that is said to clarify & help draw out impurities. Also to reduce greasy T-zone shine. I’ve already used this multiple times & have seen no results. how to use: dip a water-dampened cotton pad into powder-creating a paste-like texture-and press on the T-zone (focusing on the nose & chin area). Wait 10 minutes & remove by wiping off with a toner. To be used 1-2 times a week. to be honest, this was so messy to me, every time i would apply it with the dampened cotton pad to my skin, it would fall off. It was hard to apply, & it doesn’t deliver what it promises. it might draw out some impurities, but not enough to make any difference in my skin, & not enough to be worth the money. It takes a while to figure out how to get it to stick to your face. it's so anoying when powder starts to dry it flows everythere & you breathe it in. not worth it. MARIO BADESCU - Silver Powder
