Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream SPF 15

Cleaned out my desk and found this lying in – Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Gel which has SPF 15 in it.  This is absolutely one of my favourite SPF-containing moisturizers to wear on the regular – it’s pretty awesome at all times of year, but especially just daily under makeup because it’s so light and the […]

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

If you have sensitive skin, or if you’re using anything that will “peel” or exfoliate your skin in any way, then it’s time to have a look at the kind of cleanser that you’re using on your skin.  Maybe you’ve had a time when your skin was just so irritated even though you were using […]

Purple Tree Coconut Miracle Balm

So many of the popular balms that are on the market right now are actually just based with petroleum jelly and that’s fine.  It’s actually good on chapped lips because it’s a great barrier which means that it prevents moisture escaping your skin. Purple Tree Skincare is out of England but available in drugstores here […]

Le Labo Rose 31

If you’re looking for a unique scent, then this might be one for you.  It’s rose but with a twist, and when I pulled it out of the archives recently, I got asked again and again what it was… I invested in the Le Labo Rose 31 fragrance oil – without even smelling it first. […]

CoverGirl Lash Blast Flourish Mascara

Having a little bit of a moment with this new mascara from CoverGirl.  It’s Flourish by Lash Blast, and it comes in the same kind of tube as the original Lash Blast mascara. If you’ve used Lash Blast, or many other Covergirl mascaras, then you know that they don’t flake, or smear, and if you […]

Why is Kids’ Sunscreen so Annoying?!

#SorryNotSorry for not being around… I’ve been living life, and using a ton of sunscreen as I’ve been out and about, both on myself and on my kids.   So I have to vent about sunscreen that’s meant just for kids.  Has anyone else found that it’s usually goopy, thick and very difficult to blend […]

Maybelline Total Temptation Empty!

Ok, eyebrows are my new thing that you’d never really notice about me.  I fill them in.  It’s a daily thing.  It’s to the point that I have a backup eyebrow pencil in my purse in case I’ve in so much of a hurry that I forgot to.  That’s happened once or twice.  More often […]

Avon Anew Ultimate Gold Peel-Off Mask

There’s getting to be a problem with Instagram beauty is that it can often be overdone so that it doesn’t even seem real anymore, and that’s definitely the case when you see people masking or applying drops of highlighter on themselves before covering themselves up with foundation, powder, and whatever else it might take to […]

Sothy’s Summer 2018 Collection

A light grey eyeliner, bronzer, and an orangy-red lip makes for a simple summer statement.  You don’t even need the focus to be on the skin, which is perfect for the summer, when the humidity and high temperatures mean that it’s difficult to maintain a base anyway. That must have been the thought behind Sothy’s […]

Pastel Punk Nailpolish Collection by Miracle Gel

Check out the prettiest colours for the summer.  This is the Sally Hansen Pastel Punk collection by Miracle Gel.  I hadn’t used Miracle Gel nail polish in so long, and I am pleasantly surprised by how creamy and rich all these colours are.  Two coats are needed for opaque coverage, but that’s no big deal […]
