I seem to have forgotten all about concealer this past year. I don't know why, as I sure could have used it! I'm particularly excited by these new(ish) releases from Eve Lom, which I review here to kick off my new #concealertrials.Read More
I've been decluttering over the last few months, bringing baggies of samples and minis to work. I've been too lazy to put together a blog sale, and still have some work to do going through makeup, but I figure I better get started and find these items new homes. Almost everything in this sale will be listed for $5. Yes, you heard me. FIVE DOLLARS! So treat yourself to a few beauty goodies!Read More
I'm all about layering skincare - a must in dry or cold climates - but I've suddenly discovered the magic of layering oil. I don't know about you, but I always thought one oil at a time was enough for one girl's skincare routine!
Then, as I was indecisive about what moisturizer sample I wanted to layer one night, I gave up and slathered on more oil! imagine my surprise when my skin felt hydrated and somehow not at all slippery. Seriously, why haven't I tried this before?
The Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil (review) really soaks into my winter skin, while Kahina Giving Beauty Serum (review) just helps to make a barrier and lock in moisture. I've been loving the combination lately, and am thinking I should throw my much loved African Botanics Neroli Marula Oil into the mix...
Have you ever layered oils before? How did it work for you? Are there ingredient combinations that you love or would recommend? I'd love to know! :)

Having read so much about the Tangle Teezer and the Wet Brush over the years, I decided to give them both a try. Read on to see how they compare!Read More
It has been ages since I last posted about my favorites, so I thought I'd sum up some of my highlights from the last few months. While there have been products I discovered, love, and use frequently, these are the few that really surprised or impressed me. Read on to find out more!Read More
It has been a while since I posted about products that haven't worked out for me, so I thought it was about time to share a few items that I have recently purchased and returned. Of course, your mileage may vary with these products, so read on to see why they didn't make the cut for me!Read More
Kate Somerville is a brand I always keep my eyes on. I haven't used much from the brand, but there are always products that intrigue me. In the fall, I was starting to run low on my trusty (and discontinued!) Murad spot treatment, so I decided to try out a treatment from Kate Somerville instead. I debated between the standard spot treatment, the D-Scar, and landed on the Anti Bac Acne Clearing Lotion.Read More
