I know I have so many sunscreen reviews on here, but um, guess what?  I still got a sunburn this summer, and it was not pretty!  The worst part of the sunburn is the flaking itching skin that I just can’t seem to keep my hands off. Thankfully, a friend gave me The Putty by […]

Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter

As much as I love highlight when I see it on a Youtuber, in real life too much of it can come across as fake, or even worse, it can enhance pores in a way that leaves your skin looking less than cute. The best highlighters are powdery, soft, but also natural-looking with a glow […]

St. Tropez Pre-Shower Gradual Tan

It’s been a minute since I used a self-tanner.  Actually over a year, and it’s been because I just thought that glow wasn’t for me.  And then a friend came in with a beautiful tan and I had to get it for myself.  Luckily there’s St. Tropez Gradual Tan One Minute which is a pre-shower product. […]

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Sunscreens

I have to give a shoutout to Aveeno, because the Protect + Hydrate are some of my favourite sunscreens.  They’re moisturizing, they absorb quickly, and they’re easy to use.  The Protect + Hydrate sunscreens come in three versions – SPF 30, SPF 45, SPF 60 – and you can tell by looking at my picture […]

Kerastase Aura Botanica Styling Creams

Kerastase’s Aura Botanica line of products came out last summer, and it was the brand’s foray into more natural hair care.  The line had no silicones and sulfates, but they still work! This summer, Kerastase has added styling creams to the line and they went to the front of my vanity for products I need […]

New Coppertone ClearlySheer Whipped Sunscreen

Ease of use, non-sticky, and clear are what I’m looking for in a good sunscreen, and in past years, I’ve added Coppertone to my sunscreen roundup.  Coppertone ClearlySheer sunscreen is one that’s been in my options since it came out a couple of years ago, and in fact, I’ve written about it here and here.  […]

L’Oreal Professionel Serioxyl Denser Hair Treatment

In an age when hair extensions have gotten popular and even “normal” in some circles, the quest for denser hair isn’t that out of the world.  I’ve got naturally fine hair, and the maintenance and, ahem, price of extensions doesn’t appeal to me, but denser hair is something that I’m always on a quest for.   […]
