Bring back the bear
Happy Sunday! ☀️ It’s a sunny day here in New York which makes me feel extra happy (but I can’t wait for 5 o’clock so I can leave work ya knooo) • • @mommys_beauty_reviews was the SWEETEST human ever because she saw my IG story about how I wanted this sold out babe and sent it over to me 😭🐻 I’ve been using this once a week after I use the @briogeo Charcoal Scalp Cleanser and the results have blown me away! • • I haven’t tried their OG Deep Condition Mask yet, but apparently it’s the same formula except this is infused with organic, unpasteurized honey for intense moisture. It’s amazing especially if you’re like me and have dry and long damaged hair (I mean i haven’t had my hair cut in a year now so😅) • • Honey is a known emollient and humectant that works amazing as a hair conditioner/ deep conditioning mask. There is also rosehip oil which is a rich fatty acid to help control frizz and split ends as well as help with free radicals damage. Almond oil is a nourishing oil that enhances the shine and luster of dry or weak hair. This oil also has fatty acids which help to strengthen the hair. Vitamin B-5 is also infused in this formula which helps as a moisturizer, humectant, and emollient. • • I do hope they bring this back one day because I will totally be purchasing again!

WAS F BALM A HIT OR MISS FOR YOU?
I feel like this review I am about to write about @drunkelephant newest product F-Balm is gonna sound like a lot of other beauty bloggers. While I have no hate for this mask, I don’t find it being a crazy overnight mask with amazing results. • • I do enjoy using this after moisturizer and then sometimes I will STILL apply a thicker mask such as Jet Lag by SF. • • This is suppose to be a cooling, hydrating overnight mask that plumps with an electrolyte cocktail while supporting the skin’s natural acid mantle. • • Their highlighted ingredients are obviously their electrolyte blend. The 4 antioxidant-rich ingredients are coconut water, sodium PCA, magnesium PCA, and prickly pear extract. Just like electrolytes for our bodies, we want to use them on our face to help maintain hydration levels in our skin and by improving our barrier and lipid content. There is also Vitamin F which are soothing fatty acids which will help with hydration levels as well as skin texture and suppleness. Niacinamide which helps with fine lines, wrinkles, firmness, tone and texture of the skin. • • I wish that their baby facial was a whopping $52, but for this price, I’m not sure if I would repurchase again! I don’t reach for it too much since having it for about a month now. What are your thoughts or questions?

GET RID OF UR DARK SPOTS FAST
I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday guys 😂 The week is FLYING... this is my first #whitewednesday which I think it like kind of counts as a white Wednesday??? • • Anywho, I have been testing out @volitionbeauty Hibiscus Unspottable Correcting Oil. And honestly I may have fucked up how to apply it ~ I was researching the ingredient list this morning to see how high up their main ingredients are (oh and they get a gold star for being up high) but I realized that this should be a last step in my skin routine. I’ve been applying this after my vitamin c, however it said it should be applied after moisturizing! (We all learn something new daily 😂) • • I do still feel like I’ve seen good results from testing it out. This daily treatment oil is made with hibiscus flower and licorice root extract. They’re both high on the ingredient list and rosehip oil is right behind it! • • Hibiscus oil contains naturally occurring malic & citric acids to gently exfoliate and minimize the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. Licorice root extract helps to brighten the skin tone and soothe the skin. • • For $49, I do find the price to be a bit steep, however you really only need 2-3 drops to use and this oil is not shiny or sticky, it really sinks into your skin! • • Have you tried this oil out?

Celery Greens for Your Face!
Guysss, I can’t stop reaching for the Celery Green Cream by @volitionbeauty (I’m obsessed)! • • I’m in love with the benefits you get from drinking celery juice, just like I am in love with this moisturizer that uses celery seed extract as a key ingredient. This is just one reason why I love @volitionbeauty 🤍 They are such an innovated brand with beautiful products. • • Of course this moisturizer also has hyaluronic acid and peptides! I find that the creamy gel texture is also very soothing and cooling to apply, it also blends well into my skin. • • It’s $55 which is deff steep for me for a moisturizer, as of right now I have so many so I won’t repurchase right away but it’ll be on a list of favorites 🌙

Amazing Kosas Blush😻
This blush and highlighter duo is a gorgeous product! It is a powder blush that adds a healthy color to the cheeks without looking too heavy. I feel that it is pigmented just enough so that you don’t need to go in multiple times, one layer is perfect. I think this would look beautiful on any skin tone, i am a bit pale but i thinks this would work for tamed skin to. This formula is also really hydrating i never have any dry patches, and my texture isn’t extremely visible which is nice! Overall, this is s lovely product! I definitely recommend it and think it’s worth the time/ price/ effort. 😊😊😊 Kosas - Color & Light: Pressed Powder Blush & Highlighter Duo

Love of my life 🤤 Bum Bum
There is no other. The consistency of this product is perfect, it sinks in the skin so smoothly. It is rich without beint thick if that makes sense. It is extremely nourishing snd leaves my skin so soft. And the scent. The beloved bum bum scent is my favorite. Take me to a tropical island because that’s what this scent does for me. It is so good. Not overhyped. It’s that good. If you are sensitive to smells you won’t like probably. I recommend forever. This is the mini 2.5oz for 20, but there is a 8.1oz for $45. Worth it. Quoted via the sephora site: “Fragrance Family: Warm & Spicy Scent Type: Warm & Sweet Gourmands Key Notes: Salted Caramel, PIstachio, Vanilla Which skin type is it good for? Normal, Oily, Combination, Dry, Sensitive What it is: A fast-absorbing body cream that helps tighten and smooth the look of skin. Solutions for: - Dryness - Dullness and uneven texture - Loss of firmness and elasticity” SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Instagram’s Favorite Blush is Worth the Hype
This blush is all over the ‘Gram but it TOTALLY lives up to the hype. Tower 28 is a brand designed with sensitive skin in mind and used 100 percent clean, vegan formulas that are free from irritants. Amazing, right? Ingredients aside, the Beach Please Tinted Lip + Cheek Balm is the creamiest and dreamiest thing ever. It melts into the skin and delivers a skin-like finish. It’s so buildable and can really make a huge impact if it’s piled on. I also love that it contains green tea and aloe extract, so that means it’s soothing and hydrating—especially when used on the lips. Seriously, nothing I’ve tried blends as well as this product. I just use my fingers and it looks like the perfect natural flush. TOWER 28 - BeachPlease Tinted Lip + Cheek Balm I’ve been using the shade Magic Hour, which is a sun-kissed rosy nude that works so well as a blush and lip balm.

Milk Makeup Skincare: Hard Pass
I’d rather get coal than the Milk Makeup Watermelon Brightening Serum :/ I bought this serum a little over a year ago I want to say, alongside their Matcha Detoxifying Face Mask and Cannabis Seed Oil Hydrating Mask (spoiler: I don’t like those either!!!) and honestly I was sucked in because of the cute packaging and how portable the products were because they come in solid stick form. First of all, this product separated from the bottom and I don’t know how to get the pieces back together. Second, it literally does nothing. I used it for a good amount of time and saw no difference in my skin whatsoever: not brightened, not more even or more hydrated — nothing. It claims to diminish the appearance of dark spots using Swiss garden cress sprout extract, watermelon extract for hydration and matrixyl for smoothing. I like that it’s TSA friendly but I have no use for this product whether traveling or at home because it does NOTHING!!!! Also, it has red and yellow dyes in it which are known sensitizers for the skin and so unnecessary. The texture is nice, but another gripe I have is that it is so chubby that it doesn’t get in the crevices of the skin like between the folds of the nose or under the lips. It’s also not very hygienic in my opinion. I would definitely NOT recommend this product to others because like I said, it does nothing. It’s super cute, I’ll give it that, but there is nothing redeeming apart from that about this product. It’s not worth the time, effort of hefty $36 price tag for 1.2 oz. 0/5 (1/5 because the app won’t let me give 0) sorry Milk! Love your makeup products, though!
Milk MAKEUP-Watermelon Brightening Serum
This or That??
My skin type: I have typically oily skin with the occasional breakout and dry spot, but my skin has been through it lately due to the weather fluctuating. It has caused my skin as a whole to be more dry, especially my lips. . The Bite Beauty Agave+ Lip Balm has a very creamy texture that makes the lip balm run around in the tube, it’s so hard to actually get the lip balm on your lips since it keeps running away from you! It can also easily fall out of the tube onto the floor since it moves around so much. The hydration only lasts for an hour tops, it’s not very hydrating. I’m not impressed with it. The function of this product is to prove long-lasting hydration (they claim for up to eight hours). I think this is suitable for those that just need a little bit of moisture, not those looking for deep hydration. This is a clear lip balm that dries clear. Price: $14 for 0.15 oz/4.2 g . The Milk Kush Lip Balm has a nice firm consistency that allows it to stay in place in the tube, so it’s very easy to use! This is a soothing lip balm that also hydrates the lips. It includes hemp-derived cannabis Sativa seed oil, Shea butter, and moringa butter. The hydration lasts for hours and I notice an improvement in how my lips look and feel. This does have a strong peppermint scent, but it doesn’t bother me. It goes on green, but dries to a clear tint. Price: $16 for 0.10 oz/3 g . Verdict: I definitely prefer the Milk lip balm because it is much more user friendly and easier to apply. The difference in the amount of hydration is definitely noticeable, the Milk one drivers a better initial amount of hydration, plus the long term benefits of hydration are also better from the Milk. I wasn’t impressed and didn’t see the hype around the Bite Beauty honestly, the Milk one was so much more impressive. I also enjoyed the green to clear color change! I definitely love the Milk Kush Lip Balm for my morning lip balm before I put on lipstick because that will help keep my lips from getting flaky and gross throughout the day better than the Bite one!

Ole Henriksen’s Banana Bright Eye Creme
[this product was gifted] Suitable for all skin types, this eye cream is made with vitamin-C to help brighten and target signs of aging under your eyes! It is a light yellow/orange color (to combat blue/purple tones) and has mica in it to reflect light and give the appearance of a brighter under eye! I thoroughly enjoy this eye cream and I use it every morning! I think it does a great job to conceal my dark circles, but I don’t believe it actually helps them get better! It just changes the appearance of your under eyes temporarily! It is also $39 for 0.5oz, which is really expensive. If you are looking for a quick appearance fix in your under eyes, I recommend this! If you are looking for something that actually gets rid of dark circles for good (does that even exist? 😂), I don’t recommend! Just wanted to give full transparency of this product so expectations are what they seem if bought! OLEHENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème
