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…

Graydon Elements Sun Cream Complex Review

I started using Graydon Elements Sun Cream (the full name is actually Graydon Clinical Luxury by Nature Elements Sun Cream Complex…a bit of a mouthful) a few months ago when I was looking for a new mineral-based sunscreen that wasn’t going to be super heavy and shiny.  So far, it has met my criteria.  Despite the cream’s thick and pasty…

My Current AM and PM Skincare Routine

Skincare routines can be really difficult to create for yourself.  Discovering and curating a carefully selected array of products that you love can be super hard.  I know it is for me (which is probably why my skincare routine changes all the time).  I’m always on a quest for perfect skin that looks like I’m wearing makeup even when I’m not.  I…

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF47 Review

Sunscreen is super important and a vital part of a good skincare routine.  But finding a good one is hard.  It’s even harder when you have sensitive skin that tends to break out and get oily.  This sunscreen moisturizer by Josie Maran is good.  Very good.  It’s also a pretty good value, at $32USD for 2oz, or 60mL.  I look…
