Herbivore Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar Review

Herbivore Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar is an excellent face cleanser for anyone with oily or acne-prone skin.  It cleans very deeply and helps diminish the appearance of acne almost immediately.  I found that it started purging my skin right away.  Within a few days I had significantly fewer clogged pores. The idea of cleansing bars seemed an odd one to me…

Farmacy Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil Review

Farmacy Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil is a natural(ish) cleanser that dissolves makeup and then when water is added it turns into a milk and rinses away.  I found it to be reasonably effective at removing makeup, although it didn’t do as good a job at removing eye makeup as some other cleansing oils and balms I’ve used. This cleansing oil…

Captain Blankenship Mermaid Hair Oil

When I discovered Captain Blankenship Mermaid Hair Oil I was super excited.  I finally found a hair oil that was actually made with only real oils, and they’re organic too! (Read my rant about oils that aren’t really oils HERE)  And it also came in super adorable packaging!  Add that to the name having the word “mermaid” in it and I…

Boscia Tsubaki Oil Infused Exfoliating Powder Review

I have been using Boscia Tsubaki Oil Infused Exfoliating Powder a few mornings a week for a couple months now, and I quite like it.  After testing out Tatcha’s Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder (full review HERE), I knew I wanted to try out as many other powder cleansers as I could.  Powder cleansers are totally awesome, and I’m now…

Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil Balm Review

Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil Balm is a really effective makeup remover that comes as a solid balm, but melts into an oil cleanser when warmed in your hands.  When massaged onto dry skin, the black balm dissolves all makeup, even waterproof eyeliner and mascara.  Then when you start adding water, it turns into a milky liquid and rinses…

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.…

Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Nourishing Cleansing Oil Review

Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Nourishing Cleansing Oil is only the second cleansing oil I have tried, so I don’t have a lot to compare it to.  But, I really like it.  Just 2 pumps of product applied and massaged into dry skin for about 30 seconds will remove all makeup products.  It will even remove mascara and waterproof eyeliner (although it…

Want to use oils in your beauty routine? Better check the ingredients list

Do you like to use oils in your beauty routine?  Well let me tell you, I’m in love with oils for everything, hair oils, face oils, body oils, bath oils, etc.  I love them all.  Ever since I started using pure oils my life is just better.  I know that sounds kind of ridiculous, but I’m not even exaggerating.  Face oils…

I Think Retinol Oils are the Next Big Thing

So everyone knows about retinol by now.  The gold standard of anti-aging ingredients.  It reduces acne, wrinkles, and oil production.  It helps get rid of dark spots and makes skin overall clearer, more even, and more radiant.  But this often comes at a cost.  One that includes redness, sensitivity, flaking, and peeling.  These side effects are usually short lived if…

Review of Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil is one of those products that is so popular on the internet I was just biding my time until I could get my hands on a generously sized sample (thank you Sephora deluxe sample coupon codes).  I was so excited to try it.  But I also put it off for a long time since…
