Kapuluan Coconut Product Review

Coconut oil is probably my ultimate go-to product for a number of reasons - it's relatively inexpensive, easy to source, and can be used for pretty much everything, including skincare! Before I ventured into the world of cleansing balms and oils, I used good ol' coconut oil for my makeup-removing needs. I also used it to moisturize split ends and dry cuticles, and soothe any flaky or rough patches of skin (i.e., elbows and knees) when nothing else worked. While many people do have sensitivities to the fatty alcohols in coconut oil, I'm one of the lucky few who can use it daily and swear by it. Although, let's be real here, I don't generally like having to stick my fingers into huge jars of coconut oil (blegh), so I was pretty stoked when I learned that Kapuluan Coconut packages their coconut oil into squeezable tubes - for anyone who hates sticking their fingers into jars, they'd know well that tubes are the superior packaging. Anyway.

Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish Review

Face polishes have never been a must-have product for me; when it comes to physical exfoliants/gommages/whatever, I am the laziest of the lazy. I like my chemical AHAs/BHAs, because I can just slap them on and wait 20 minutes, so rinsing or massaging required. But I do think that face polishes are overlooked as a crucial skincare step, and so I've been messing around with various physical exfoliating creams/gels, including the Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish, which I received courtesy of Brandbacker and Exuviance for review. If you already know all about the awesomeness that is Brandbacker, feel free to skip the next bit and scroll down to the actual review.

Review: NEW Hask Exotic Oil Collections That Cater To Your Hair Type!

Hair care has quickly become another obsession of mine - I used to be one of those people who did nothing to my hair, just washed, conditioned, and maybe spritzed a little leave-in moisturizer if I was feeling in the mood for it - and my hair survived just fine. In fact, it was super healthy and strong. But as my hair grows longer (it's a bit past armpit length now), I've been finding myself plagued by dullness, split ends, and dryness. In this post I'm going to be talking about a new hair care system I've been experimenting with, the new Hask Exotic Oil Blue Chamomile & Argan Oil Collection, which I received free from the brand and Brandbacker (huzzah!) for review purposes. If you already know all about the awesomeness that is Brandbacker, feel free to skip the next bit and scroll down to the actual review.

Amabie Beauty / Purlisse Product Reviews

I'm back with another review, this time for some products I received courtesy of Amabie Beauty. I'd been dying to try out some Purlisse products for ages, so of course I accepted an opportunity to review some for free - because what's better than free? Something is, probably, but I can't think of it right now so I'm going to go with nothing, that's what.

Quickie Review: Jan Marini Hyla 3D HA Activating Complex

As many of you know, I've been a Brandbacker reviewer for a bit now, and I was recently sent the new Hyla 3D HA Activating Complex from the company Jan Marini. While I haven't had a ton of time to extensively test this out, I thought I'd do a quickie review and talk a little bit about the product and my first impressions of it.

Naruko La Creme & Narcissus Product Reviews

Hello, my lovely readers! I know it's been quite awhile since I posted my last review over here, but rest assured, I haven't given up on blogging! Life had just got incredibly busy/crazy, and involved working multiple jobs, getting really sick (I'm better now, though!), a broken phone and computer, and a car accident that destroyed the front of our cute little Honda Civic. Thankfully, things have normalized (for the most part), so I'm going to be reviewing some Naruko products that were sent to me by the brand. These reviews are loooong overdue - I think I've been testing these for about 4 months now, so I'm confident in my thoughts on them, at least. I absolutely adore most Naruko products I've used in the past, so I had pretty high hopes for these, to say the least. Let's dive in!

Review: Peter Thomas Roth NEW Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream & Serum

As winter ends and the hot, sticky months of summer begin, I've been gearing up my skincare routine to include more light, hydrating layers as opposed to thicker, more occlusive products. As someone with combination skin, I find myself consistently having to rotate products in and out of my regimen to fit my needs, but summer is usually when the oilies attack - my skin goes from winter tight and dry to oily in the t-zone but still dehydrated, so I've been on the lookout for a lightweight, yet decently moisturizing cream that plays well under makeup and doesn't exacerbate my problem areas. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to be sent the new Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream and Serum from Peter Thomas Roth courtesy of Brandbacker for review, and let me tell you, it's definitely worth talking about!

Review: Finesse Hair Care Shampoo & Conditioner Review

More haircare! I've been super into taking care of my locks lately (and goodness knows my hair needs it). Thankfully, I was recently sent some Finesse hair care products from Brandbacker, so I thought I'd talk a little bit about how they worked for me.

Review: Scalisi Skincare Silk Elixir Serum

About a month or so ago, I was contacted by the lovely Jill of Scalisi Skincare, and she asked me if I'd be interested in reviewing one of their latest products, the Silk Elixir Serum. I've been seeing a bit of buzz on social media regarding Scalisi Skincare, so of course, I was curious. Read on for my full review!

Review: New Greek Yogurt Collections from Hask sold exclusively at Walgreens!

It's been a hot minute since I've done a blog review (it hasn't really been that long, but ya know), and while I usually don't review hair products, 1. I actually have a lot to say about these, and 2. Brandbacker is sort of making me. But it's really nbd, because Brandbacker is awesome and honestly - I really don't do enough to take care of my hair. Skin? Put on all the serums and creams! Body? Eat the healthiest meals (often vegan!) and force yourself to exercise! Hair? Wash. Air dry. Maybe use a brush every three years. You know how it goes. Thus, I was super excited to receive this shampoo, conditioner, and deep conditioning treatment duo from Hask, so I can finally give my hair some much needed TLC and feel like my life is like, finally together.
