Empties – June 2017: My Final Thoughts on Products I’ve Finished

Every now and then, when I have built up a box full of empty product bottles, I like to go through them all and post my final thoughts.  I planned to do this sooner, but it turns out I only ever get around to doing this every six months or so.  Multiple moves and a home purchase have taken up…

Review of Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel

I managed to snag Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel from Sephora during one of its brief periods of actually being in stock.  I must say, I’m so glad that I did.  This is an amazing eye gel that actually seems like it’s doing something when I apply it.  This firms, brightens, and tightens the under-eye area within a few…

Youth to the People Age Prevention Superfood Cream Review

Youth to the People Age Prevention Superfood Cream is a lovely light cream that is perfect for warmer weather.  It’s surprisingly hydrating given how light it feels.  It’s a sort of translucent palest green gel-cream.  This makes it perfect for summer, when we don’t want super heavy creams on our faces all night but the hot weather can really dehydrate…

Cosrx Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream Review

Cosrx Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream was a full-on dry, flaky skin miracle for me this past winter.  It is a very thick, stiff textured cream that provides amazing moisture.  It also helps reduce signs of irritation (redness, flakiness etc).  Despite the thick texture, it cause no breakouts or clogged pores.  This is likely due to the fact that 60%…

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Cream Review

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Cream is amazing.  It is super hydrating and has a nice weight to it for cold weather use.  But it doesn’t clog pores or cause any breakouts, so it should be good in warmer weather as well.  I’ve found that it hydrates deeply and leaves skin feeling supple and comfortable, while soaking in completely and leaving a…

One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm Review

I’m in love with One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm.  I have been using it most nights (but not every night since it’s quite rich).  It is so incredibly hydrating and plumping and nourishing to my delicate under eye skin.  It has been an absolute winter savior in the cold, dry weather my hometown of Victoria, BC has experienced…

Empties – December 2016: My Final Thoughts on Stuff I’ve Finished

Something I’ve been meaning to do ever since starting this blog is give my final thoughts about products once I finish using them up.  I started the blog in May 2016, and I’ve been saving my empties ever since.  Originally, I planned to do this every few months, but I’ve been procrastinating…so this is going to be a long post.…
