This product isn’t new on the market and I’ve had it forever. The Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector is just one of those standbys that I have on hand. It does the same kind of thing that my blotting powder does – take away shine without disturbing the rest of my makeup – but somehow […]

Bliss Steep Clean

A non-clay mask that promises to clean your pores inside and out – this I had to try. The mask comes out in two colours and you mix them together in your hand to make a thick green cream. For some reason, having this mask on made my face feel like it was sweating and […]

Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Clay Mask

It’s super emollient and takes off dirt and grime without at all drying your skin. Like all Dr. Hauschka […]
