I would die for this eye cream
I thought eye cream was unnecessary & lowkeye still kind of do but I am so in love with this one. She is thiccccccc, smells amazing and makes my concealer apply 10x better under my eyes. I have sunken under eyes by genetics (🙄) so I don’t noice help with that obv but I see a huge improvement with under eye brightness! This is prob thanks to the vitamin c, collagen & banana goodness. I also notice that it seems to ‘fill in’ some of the texture or wrinkles under my eyes. So obv 10/10 & I just cannot get over the texture it is sooooo good. OLEHENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème

New haul
Thanks to Cherie I was able to pick up a few products I’ve had my eyes on. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Detox Mask I’ve had this in the sample size and fell in love. Such a soft, smoothing cream that leaves my face feeling hydrated and nourished. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial As soon as this came out I knew I wanted it. A two minute facial! Hell ya! I can’t wait to see all the amazing benefits from this beauty. THE inkey LIST - Apple Cider Vinegar Acid Peel I’ve heard such great things about how this little bottle packs a big punch. At $15 I couldn’t resist giving it a try. OLEHENRIKSEN - Pre-Makeup Babies Skincare Prep Set the prep set includes the OLEHENRIKSEN - Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner OLEHENRIKSEN - PHAT Glow Facial Mask OLEHENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème OLEHENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Face Primer I’ve been a fan of the Toner and am anxious to give the others a try. I tested out the PHAT facial tonight and while I worked well with my skin, I didn’t see any results. I did find it a gentle alternative to Drunk Elephants Babyfacial

Face Mask Awards
KORRES - Hydra Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask With Real Greek Yoghurt SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask SKINFOOD - Black Sugar Wash-Off Face Mask My favorite masks! Korres Hydra Biome: I love how this mask pairs lactic acid wirh hyaluronic acid to create a hydrating mask. It feels so refreshing! I especially like how it soaks into the skin after leaving it on for 10 minutes. You can also use this as an overnight mask! This would be great for people with dry skin that also want a gentle exfoliation in their mask. It’s also great for acne prone skin because it’s super gentle and fragrance free. This wins the hydrating award for sure! It’s the most hydrating mask I have Sand&Sky Pink Clay: This is a clay mask aimed at absorbing oil, smoothing the skin and evening skin tone. This wins the oil control award because you can see the oil coming through when it dries! It leaves my skin smooth yet not dehydrated. I also love the addition of vitamin A because it really evens my skin tone! SkinFood Black Sugar: This mask is great for those who love physical exfoliation. It has grains large enough to exfoliate yet the base ingredients moisturize well too! I like to leave this on as a mask for 5 minutes then gently exfoliate off! This wins the exfoliating award because I’ve tried so many exfoliators and I keep coming back to this one because of the way it leavea my skin so smooth and refreshed

Saturday Skin Probiotic Power Whipped Cream
SATURDAY SKIN - Pretty Pop Probiotic Power Whipped Cream I adore the Saturday Skin bright potion serum, so when they gifted me their new pretty pop probiotic power whipped cream, I expected to be equally infatuated. Cute holographic packaging? Check. Powerhouse ingredients? Check. Probiotics AND prebiotics? Check. Yet it doesn't quite measure up to the bright potion serum, even though I'm aware that comparing the two doesn't make a ton of sense since they're completely different product types. Like the rest of the probiotic power line, the cream has niacinamide (my favorite skincare ingredient) to soothe and even out skin tone, four types of probiotics to improve complexion and strengthen the moisture barrier, and two types of prebiotics to help the probiotics work better. (I know, it was hard to word that bit) There's also hibiscus extract to smoothe texture, as well as moringa seed extract to make skin glow. On paper, this sounded perfect, yet despite the light texture, it left my skin feeling greasy even though I'm on the dry side. It has been quite humid here lately, so this could very well work better in cooler weather. There are little probiotic beads that release upon application, which is fine since it goes on so easily, but that part wasn't clearly mentioned, so when I first opened it I thought mine had gone off somehow. It's too early to speak to its brightening abilities; perhaps that'll change given time and/or using it in conjunction with the serum. I'm all for splurging on a product that really works for you, but in this case the $57 price tag doesn't feel justified. Currently only available online at Sephora

Empties
So I felt like this would be a good first post as I’ve used the products and I can share an honest review. amika: - Soulfood Nourishing Mask I gave this hair mask 3 stars. Back story my hair has a bleached ombré. I can take any moisture I can get. This didn’t give my hair anything. My hair was knotted and dry feeling once it dried, while still using my leave in products. SOL de Janeiro - Coco Cabana Cream I gave this moisturizer 4 stars. This is the newly reformulated scent and it’s way better than the original. I do have to say though it still smells like buttered popcorn. This is a great moisturizer and I use it on my legs. SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream 5 stars because it’s an amazing smell and moisturizes well. The scent lasts too! primera - Miracle Seed Essence Great hydrating essence. This is a mini but I got many uses out of it. It help your serums and moisturizers to sink in deeper in your skin and makes your skin feel great. primera - Clean Berry Lip Mask Best lip mask on the market! This is a hydrating lip mask. Unlike the next product, it has moisturizing ingredients to actually help your lips. This has a glossy finish when a good amount is applied so it’s great for all day use. A little of this goes a long way too! LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask This is not my favorite. It’s heavy and only creates a barrier on the lip to keep what moisture you have in the skin from leaving the skin. If you don’t apply it well and get some on the skin it can cause break outs. I recommend the primera lip mask over this and it’s the same price.

My favorite lotion of all time!
SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream First let’s start with the way this lotion smells, ummm, HEAVENLY! The smell is so addictive and it lasts. It’s like being at the beach on a warm sunny day and a Carmel, vanilla breeze come floating through the air. It's not greasy, silky cream perfect feel on the skin. The Bum-Bum Cream has a lightweight texture that makes it super comfortable to wear and absorbs really quickly into the skin. I love massaging this cream into the skin after a bath or shower with more of a kneading motion, especially on the thigh area. It contains a very potent form of caffeine which helps stimulate circulation which helps to smooth and tighten the skin with time. I will definitely repurchase the cream and looking to purchase the shower gel, shampoo and conditioner SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Product for Aging Skin
🍒 So I’m 30 years old but I started using anti-aging products around age 27. You definitely will get better results from OTC anti aging products using them in a preventative way versus as a remedy for visible signs of aging. These are some products that I really like for plumping and firming my 30 year old skin. 🍒 Farmacy Very Cherry Bright - a serum with 4 types hyaluronic acid and 4 types of vitamin C. Any vitamin C serum is good not only for brightening but also for plumping and forming. This one I especially like because of the hyaluronic acid. Aging skin tends to be dehydrated which causes it to lose its bounce. This product makes my skin feel significantly plumper, firmer, and springier. 🍒 Dr. Jart Peptidin Radiance Serum - a serum containing 8 peptides and brightening peach flower extract. Peptides stimulate collagen production which decreases naturally as we age. Don’t waste your money on collagen serums as the collagen molecule is actually too large to be absorbed topically. Peptides are where it’s at. This product gives a beautiful dewy plumpness to my skin. 🍒 Drunk Elephant s Protini Polypeptide Cream - another peptide product but a moisturizer! This lightweight gel cream moisturizer contains 9 different peptides as well as waterlilly stem cell extract, soybean folic acid ferment, and acetyl glutamine which all work to plump and repair the skin. This moisturizer sinks in quick and is suitable for all skin types. 🍒 Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream - a 1% retinol treatment that also contains peptides, antioxidant rich winter cherry juice and kale leaf extract and moisturizing passion fruit, apricot, and jojoba seed oil. Retinol is one of the most potent and transformative anti-aging ingredients available over the counter. It also helps with acne, hyperpigmentation, pores, texture, and basically any visible skin concern. Retinol can be drying so it’s important to start slow (maybe once a week then accelerate to 3 times a week then every day or every other day depending on how your skin handles it) and buffer with hydrating, moisturizing, and soothing ingredients. Retinol also can increase sun sensitivity so only use only at night and make sure you wear sunscreen during the day!

Does pretty packaging mean pretty skin?
So first off - I had my eye on Drunk elephant for over a year. The packaging was so sleek, modern and simple, basically so appeasing to the eye. Back then I just couldn’t justify spending like $100 (I am based in New Zealand) on single item. But a little after latest Christmas a Drunk Elephant set was on sale for $189 and I thought why not treat myself. So after using it for a while now I have to say, the price tag is definitely worth it! I have extremely sensitive skin at times so I am cautious to try expensive things so my skin in case I react. But this serum left my skin feeling refreshed and bright! It improved my pores and evened out my skin tone, which as a current bride to be, makes me even happier. I try to apply it every night after I cleansed. Sometimes I use it with the Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, which came in the set, to give my skin the extra treat. The oil helps nourish and balance the skin, especially if I am having a dry skin day. And yes sometime the pretty packaging does mean it’ll give you pretty skin. It’s worth the price tag and you don’t actually use much. 100% recommend ❤️

Forever a repurchase
DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum What it is- an AHA/BHA night serum that resurfaces skin by lifting dead skin cells to improve texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and pores Good for any skin type! I have dry skin, my main concerns are anti aging, clearing out closed comodones, and smoothing texture. I’ve been using this product for over a year now and I am on my third repurchase. I truly think this is a product that I will use for life at this point. My skin never gets irritated with it like other glycolic acid serums I’ve used. It’s been gentle yet effective. When used on areas I’ve broken out I notice quicker healing and less severe of a pimple. It’s pricy at 90$ for 30ml but that size bottle lasted me 6-7 months.

My Favorite Lip Glosses For the Spring
A lipgloss should be a staple in everyone’s makeup routine! I’ve been saying this since I was a kid, and I’m so glad they’ve come back in style. I loved (and still love) matte lipstick, but it’s so refreshing to just throw on a cute lipgloss to top off your look. And, some of the heavy-hitters in the makeup world have taken notice of this! My favorite brands make the cutest lip glosses. I have two go-tos that I use almost daily! These have been pretty standard for me for the past few years and have consistently pulled through with awesome results. When it comes to lip products in general, I tend to gravitate towards Fenty Beauty and Kylie Cosmetics. Kylie’s claim to fame with lip products escalated around 2016, and Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line has expanded exponentially within the last few years. But, here’s why these two glossy shades are my absolute favorites! 1. High Gloss in the shade Slept On by Kylie Cosmetics Kylie Lip Kits used to be almost impossible to get your hands on. They used to sell out in minutes. The natural next step for Miss Jenner was clearly to make a lip gloss. Of course, she dabbled in other products too, but these glosses are fantastic! Again, the formula is light and not at all sticky. It has a great amount of shimmer, too. 2. Gloss Bomb by Fenty Beauty As we impatiently await new music by Rihanna, we can still marvel at her amazing beauty line. Her Gloss Bomb lipgloss is another one of those products that we’re still talking about years later. It’s so versatile and lightweight that you almost forget you’re wearing it! Out of the three on my list, this one is my all-time favorite.

My Favorite Lip Glosses
Talking about lip gloss, sometimes I love using clear ones as a topper to make my lips look juicy and plump; if my lips are too dry, I also love using lip glosses with pigmentation alone to get a healthy look. And here are three of my favorite lip glosses. I want to start from a clear one, the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer from Fenty Beauty, named Fenty Glow. This is the first lip gloss Fenty Beauty launched and is a shimmering rose nude shade, which is suitable for all skin tones. What I love about this is that it has gold and silver shimmers inside, really beautiful under sunshine. It looks sticky but after applying, I feel it more like oil. It also comes with peach-vanilla scent and I really love sweet scent. FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer The second one can be used not only as a topper, but as a tinted gloss. It is called Bronze Temptation from Pat Mcgrath Labs, which is famous for its eyeshadow palettes and matte lipsticks. But after trying this gloss, I think it’s an underrated product. This is a golden peachy bronze shade, giving lips a three-dimensional luster. Comparing the $38 lipstick, this gloss only costs $28 and has more products, you can feel the packaging is quite heavy. The only thing I don’t like is that t’s a little sticky, so don’t wear it in a windy day or your hair will stick on lips. PAT McGRATH LABS - LUST: Lip Gloss The last one is called Aragon from Nars. This one is the perfect everyday lip gloss for me, non-sticky, great pigmentation, instant smoothing and wonderful color. I have light skin with yellow undertone, so this red chestnut color will brighten my skin. Even though the shade is a little bit darker than the other two, but the luminous shine will make me look healthy even without makeup. NARS - Lip Gloss Summer is coming, it’s time to try some new lip glosses and enjoy the sunshine.

Battle of the balms...
So I’ve finally been able to try out two other cleansing balms other than my usual go to, FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm First up DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser What I liked: * very gentle and effective cleanser * option to add exfoliating powder * no scent * fairly easy to remove with just water What I don’t like: * needed more to get an effective cleanse than other product tested Overall, I enjoyed it and if Green Clean wasn’t available I’d definitely use Slaai. Next BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original What I liked: * no scent * price point What I didn’t like: * took a lot of product to effectively cleanse * left residue after rinsing with water, a cloth is needed to remove it all This definitely came in 3rd as it just doesn’t compare for me with the other two. And my favorite FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm What I liked: * the fresh scent (had me hooked after first use and I typically don’t like scent in my products) * only need a small amount to effectively cleanse * comes of easily with water * no irritation to eyes What I didn’t like: * Zero complaints! Green Clean, not surprisingly, takes the win for me. 🏆 I’ve been a fan of it for a year now and nothing can replace it. I definitely was biased coming it to this as it’s had my heart for so long, but I have been eager to test other balms to see if they compare. Again, I’d choose Slaai if Green Clean wasn’t available. It’s definitely a good contender.

FARMACY SPOTLIGHT ❤️FAVOURITE [Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm] I love this! I always have trouble finding a clean cleansing balm that wipes away my waterproof mascara and I think this might be my favourite product to remove my makeup! It isn’t greasy or foamy. It’s literally like rubbing lip balm on your skin!! Honestly, I could actually feel it removing blackheads! I’ve never felt a cleanser or scrub remove blackheads without stripping my skin of moisture!!!! I love it so much and I am going to buy a full size since it is also organic and cruelty free!!!! ☹️LEAST FAVOURITE [Dew It All Total Eye Cream] I heard good reviews about this product and decided to head into the store to really see what it's all about. The employee who helped me was gushing about the product and spoke highly of it. Having very bad dark circles and under eye bags, I decided to try to product. I've had it for a month, and use it twice daily, once in the morning and once before bed. I honestly have not seen any difference at all, and sad to say it did not work for me. It does make a good primer for me, and a little but of it goes a long way.

Night-time Routine
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream - This is one of the best facial creams I have come across that is also not extremely expensive. It actively hydrates and moisturizes the skin, without leaving it sticky and shiny. It has been a game-changer for my dry and sensitive skin! Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 - I got this as a part of my birthday present from my membership to Kiehl’s, and it is such a great lip balm. It is extremely moisturizing and has a very nice and glossy finish. Jet Lag Mask - I had very high expectations from this mask looking through various reviews, however after trying out the product myself, I am not too big of a fan. Although it is moisturizing at first, I don’t think it acts as a very good mask as it dries out pretty quickly. I like to use this under my eyes sometimes for a little extra moisture.

Current Routine
CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum *I just started this product and haven’t formed an opinion yet - worried about it overly drying my face Cetaphil - Moisturizing Lotion * I wish it was a little thicker. I pair it with Aloe Vera for extra moisture. CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 Face Lotion with Zinc Oxide *not my favorite, hope to try something else when I use it up. Lots of white cast and oily. CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin * I (hopefully) am almost done purging from this product. This is normal with this because of the ingredients in it- I just need to be patient. GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover *apparently there’s fragrance in this which isn’t good, but it gets my makeup off and the grease from work- does it’s job PAULA'S CHOICE - SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT *had to give this a second go because I didn’t realize that purging is natural because of the ingredients in it. Liking my experience so far. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% *I introduced this product at the same time as others and my skin freaked out, took a step back and now it works great. Noticing a difference in my hyperpigmentation. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution *loved this product at first - made my skin super soft - but now I’m not sure what it’s doing. ONLY USE FOR TEN MINUTES AND NO MORE THAN EVERY OTHER DAY. Fruit of the Earth - Aloe Vera 100% Gel *Just a basic, cheap aloe vera to help with moisture and soothe inflammation. #Good Neighbor Pharmacy - Calamine Lotion Suspension USP[products]# *I leave this on while I sleep, feel like it helps keep in the other products I use. Helps regulate oiliness. Can be found at your local drug store.
