New L’Occitane Cleanser with 5% Shea Butter

So this cleanser has 5% shea butter in it but it didn’t break me out, so there’s a good chance it won’t break you out either! I’m using peels and acids on the regular, so if I wash my face with something too soapy, it leaves my skin dry and tight which just means that […]

So Micellar Water – it’s actually such a controversial product among skincare specialists. Some people really hate it because they don’t think that it really gives your skin a good clean, and others can’t live without it because it’s so easy to use.

Yes to Coconut!

If you have oily skin, it can easy to think that you need to stay away from moisturizing products, but once you actually add them into your skincare routine, it can feel so refreshing! I love washing my face with something more creamy because creamy cleansers really emulsify oils and makeup together and then wash […]

Dr. Roebuck’s Adds a Cleanser To Its Line

One of the highlights of 2014 (nope, not a typo) was meeting the twins that started the Dr. Roebuck’s skincare line.  Having dealt with sensitive skin their whole lives, and looking for something that was gentle but actually made a difference on their skin, they decided to make a cream themselves with ingredients local to […]

I’m forever on the lookout for really unique gifts, and this year, I’ve struck gold at Caryl Baker Visage. They have Spongellé: a unique line of already soapy sponges that carry enough product for 14 showers.

Currently Using: The Clarisonic Radiance Brush Head

A pet peeve of mine is when skin is slightly bumpy and you can see foundation sitting on top of it.  I find this is something that I struggle with in hot weather – my skin just isn’t designed for it, and lots of people with oily skin are in the same boat. The only […]
