Yuno Hana Soap & Bath Salts Review

I'm excited to bring this review to you, because I've been apart of the review base for the company that sent these products to me, and it's been so incredibly fun! I received a few products from 08L recently, and one of them was a package of Yunohana Yuza Soap & Bath Powder. If you're unfamiliar with 08L (pronounced point eight liter), they're a new

How to Get Rid of Pores from Hell: A Comparison of Elizavecca's Hell Pore Clean Up Mask & Daiso's Charcoal Peel Off Mask

My pores have always been such a huge issue for me. I have huge pores on my cheeks and nose (probably from years of sleeping in my makeup in high school) and my nose is constantly full of sebaceous filaments (which I like to endearingly call my "strawberry nose"). I recently decided that pore strips weren't going to cut it for me (they're also not great for your skin), so I've decided to do 2 things: consistently exfoliate with a mild BHA (currently using the COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid) and use some peel off masks instead! Pore strips contain the same sticky chemical that hairspray does (it's what helps them adhere), and prolonged use of pore strips can lead to wrinkles, spider veins, broken capillaries, and permanently enlarged pores (because once you stretch those babies out, they ain't going back). I've been utilizing 2 products to help get rid of my pesky blackheads/sebaceous filaments: the Elizavecca Hell Pore Clean Up Mask, and the Daiso Charcoal Peel Off Mask.

So Susan Cosmetics Haul + Swatches

I recently received a few So Susan Cosmetics Lip Love bags in the mail (I guess they didn't forward to my new address until now) and it was one of the sweetest surprises! So Susan Cosmetics is a cosmetic brand that focuses on how beauty and science can come together to formulate makeup that can also be good for your skin, as opposed to just being a cover-up for imperfections. Their line is vegan, cruelty-free, non-comedogenic, and is always free of mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, and gluten.

Walmart Beauty Box Summer 2016 Review & Unboxing

I have been out of the subscription box game for a minute; between moving across the country (turns out - it's hella expensive! Who knew?) to trying to put as much money as I can into my savings, I've been on a no-buy for awhile. I've broken it a few times (haven't we all, though?), but for the most part, I've pretty much unsubscribed from every subscription box service. Except Walmart, apparently. Truth be told, I didn't realize that I never received my summer Walmart Beauty Box (and I honestly didn't even know I was still subscribed) but it arrived on my doorstep a few days ago, and my reaction was pretty much "Meh, okay". I almost never review these on my blog (I do post unboxings on social media, though - links in sidebar), but I decided eh, why not.

PurpleTale Product Review: Setting the Scene Treatment Essence & Ode to Hydration Facial Cream

Sometimes, if I'm being truly honest with myself, I know in my heart that I have too many products. Serums, essences, creams...I have tons. And I'm not always able to finish them all before they expire. But I don't care. I want more. *Queue the Little Mermaid holding up a fork- er, dinglehopper in the distance)*

JORD Wood Watches Review

One thing that has always intrigued me was using wood for things that you wouldn't normally use wood for. Years ago, it would have been unheard of to use wood for jewelry/accessories, accept for those cute but cheaply made bracelets that you'd get at the county fair because some pushy salesman finagled $6 out of you for a wristlet with your astrological sign on it (guilty - I've been there).

I've been Skin18'ed! - My first experience with Skin18, + Mask Reviews

It's no secret that I love sheet masks. I use them almost daily, often twice a day, to achieve smooth, hydrated, glowing skin. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I have an obsession with them - I love using them, reviewing them, sending them to friends as gifts. They're just so versatile, easy to use, and my skin has been looking phenomenal since I took up masking 1-2 times a day. So when Kbeauty company Skin18 contacted me and offered to send me some masks to review, I of course gave an emphatic 'yes'. Who doesn't need more sheet masks, am I right? :D
