L’Oreal Skin Expert Pure-Clay Cleansers

Literally, these are the most exciting cleansers I’ve seen in a while.  I think we’re all over the oil cleansing, the balm cleaners, the charcoal masks, but these are different. L’Oreal took their immensely popular clay masks and turned them into cleansers.  Each cleanser has a significant amount of clay in it, but it’s in […]

Mineral Sunscreen from Garnier Ombrelle

Ok, so I wrote about Neutrogena’s new mineral sunscreen which should be what we’re all using, but now I’ve come across Garnier Ombrelle’s mineral sunscreen which is tinted!  Truly, I couldn’t ask for anything more, because the main issue with mineral sunscreens is that they don’t dry clear even if they’re supposed to.  You can blend […]

Is Neutrogena’s New Sheer Zinc Sunscreen What We Should All Be Using?

If you’ve ever used sunscreen for kids, you’ll know that it goes on chalky and white because of the great deal of mineral suncreen ingredients in it.  These are known as physical sunscreens, and they’re used instead of chemical sunscreens because they’re less likely to break down in the sun thus providing better sun protection.  […]

L’Oreal Paris Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer

At first glance, it doesn’t really seem appealing to rub a rosy-tinted moisturizer all over your face, even if you are into colour correction, but my skin needs a moisturizer so I thought I would give this a shot. The upside is that the rosy tint didn’t really show up on my tan skin – […]

The Best Way to Try Beautycounter Skincare

  There’s something about mini things that makes them infinitely appealing.  I mean, did anyone see Francesca flip out over the “miniatures” in the pharmacy in the second season of Master of None?  They are for sure collectibles and just so nice to have. That’s just part of the reason that Beautycounter’s skincare trial sets […]
