Cleaning up my skincare products has been on my New Years' resolution list for something like the past 3 years. The thing that stops me from having everything in my bathroom be clean is that shmoneyyyy. Even if I splurge on a $36 clean face wash once, can I really buy it again, and again, and again? Nope, and I never do. So the revolving door to my vanity remains a mixed bag of clean formulas and traditional beauty, and while I feel I've locked down the efficacy of my routine, I know things can only be better for myself (and the earth) by choosing cleaner beauty formulas. If you love beauty, or Instagram, you've probably seen Billie's branding in some way shape or form. They're known for their razors and radical campaigns around shaving as a choice—and honestly as someone who doesn't shave, I've always wanted a reason to try anything from Billie. Lo and behold, their recently launched beauty essentials. Comprising of the most-used beauty products amongst women—dry shampoo, face wipes, and lip salve—this clean beauty line makes it super easy (and affordable) to clean up your vanity. To sweeten the deal, on a scale of 1-10 on EWG's Skin Deep Databse, 1 being the cleanest, all Billie's new products rate at a 1-2!The superstar: Super SalveWorth it? YES!This one is my favorite of the line, and it easily found its way into my everyday routine. I love how the base ingredients are just sunflower oil, candilila wax, avocado oil, and vitamin E, because I can use this on my eczema and not just on my lips (in the classic untinted flavor of course!).

billieSuper SalveThe earth (and skin) friendly wipe: Wonder WipesWorth it? YES!The biggest qualm I have with face wipes is how wasteful it is to throw away one of these every single night. My second biggest qualm was that they never took makeup off as good as cleansing oils, or even micellar water. Billie's Wonder Wipes solve these qualms with their wipes being 100% biodegradable, and the clean formula actually taking off (almost) all of my makeup with just one towel! The weave of this cloth is THICK and the cloths are also nice and big so one will usually do the trick. I'll still be double cleansing after using a wipe, though, because clean skin is way too important to me.
billieWonder WipesThe oil repeller: Floof Dry ShampooWorth it? No.If you have a dry, itchy scalp like myself, you probably don't use a dry shapmoo. If you do please share which one, because I've been on the hunt! I tend to wash my hair everyday because I run everyday but I know I it would help my very dry hair if I didn't. Dry shampoos haven't done much to help my scalp, and sadly Floof didn't either. I will say it helped with oil absorption, but my scalp didn't feel clean and in fact was itchier after using this. I will say, if you want to switch your dry shampoo to a cleaner, aerosol free formula, this could be worth a shot!

this isn't a lipstick 👀💋
I did a little video with some of my favorite reds a little while ago, but I feel like NYX - Intense Butter Gloss in Apple Crisp deserves its own post! It's glossy, pigmented, AND affordable... we love to see it! 🙌🏾
are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Preserving My Curls Overnight
This is how I preserve most of my hairstyles overnight! I hear many people complain about how their bonnet or scarf is always falling off their head and ending up on the floor once they wake up, I was having the same issue! That is when I decided to create a wrap that would stay on throughout the night while protecting your curls. I hand make them myself and sale on Etsy (link in my bio) if you are interested! 😊
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
