IMG_4721

It’s not often that I make an impulse purchase, but I made a sneaky detour into my grocery store’s natural beauty section, which is surprisingly great, and I saw the Acure Organics Radical Resurfacing Treatment. You know I love their seriously glowing serum and brightening scrub, so I decided to give it a try. The claims? Reduce blotchiness and hyperpigmentation, which are all too familiar to me. I’ve used it for one month now and honestly, I’m conflicted.

How to Oil Cleanse for Smooth & Clear Skin

IMG_4702

A few weeks ago, I gave my skincare routine a little makeover. My previous routine was preventing my skin from getting worse, but I knew it could be better. I finally changed how I cleanse my skin and it changed everything! All this time, I’ve been focusing on finding the right serums and moisturizers when how I washed my face was the culprit.

It’s suitable for all skin types! If you have dry, oily, mature, acne prone, textured, irritated or sensitive skin, you have to try oil cleansing. My skin is the best it’s been in years.

Not to brag, but c’mon, that’s a pretty good love story. Though jojoba oil was my first love, I’ve tried three other oils from Leven Rose and I want to share my thoughts. In a perfect world, I would own all of their products. At the end, you can read about the ones I’m particularly desperate to get my hands on.

If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I have yet to find a product that can conceal my severe dark circles. After trying the Hynt concealer, I realized the only solution might be using a color corrector. The only problem was there weren’t any on the market that were vegan, cruelty free and made from nontoxic ingredients. Then Au Naturale launched a ton of new products, including their Color Theory Creme Correctors. Did I just stumble upon the holy grail?

100% Pure Green Tea Fiber Brow Builder | Review

100% pure green tea fiber brow builder medium brownA couple of weeks ago, I did some damage and ordered perhaps too much new makeup. I can’t review products if I don’t try new ones though, right? If you saw this post, then you know a $6 serum gave my brows some much needed fullness, but they could still use a boost, so I’ve been looking for some brow products. I didn’t want to mess with a gel or powder and angled brush though. The new Green Tea Fiber Brow Builder from 100% Pure struck me as the perfect low maintenance product.
