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 […]

I’ve become one of those people who love cream cleansers.  There’s nothing that emulsifies all your makeup better than a cream cleanser and that’s why I love them.  I used to hate them because they all left a residue on my skin – they’re supposed to be moisturizing – but I have a way around […]

Garnier Micellar Water in Travel Sizes

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. Micellar Water looks and feels like regular water, but performs as a […]
