Shaving and I have a complicated relationship. It started when I was 13 and my mom refused to let me use a razor to rid my underarms of the slightly tinted hair that was growing. I guess she was afraid I was going to hurt myself or use the razors for something else. So instead I used Nair, a foul-smelling and painful hair remover cream that chemically burned my armpits from the first use.
I’ve struggled ever since to find a hair removal device that works for me. Electric razors never really worked. Waxing hurt and was too expensive. And razors from the drugstore left me with a weird rash every time I shaved. So for a long time, I just stopped removing the hair even after comments from friends and family. I was just tired of the pain.
After over 10 years of shaving my underarms, stomach and legs, I’ve finally found a razor that doesn’t hurt me. And it’s all because of a Facebook ad! Read more in my Billie razor review down below!
Every now and then I like to sit down and write a list of what posts I’d like to write in the future. My monthly favorites are almost always on that list, but for some reason or another I can never get myself to reflect on my past month and figure out what products I loved the most. After seeing a few YouTube videos of people sharing their favorites, I started to think about what I truly loved last month. After much though, I present to you my September favorites.
Micellar water is one of my favorite makeup innovations in the past few years. It removes stubborn eye makeup without oil, it fixes makeup mistakes without leaving behind a residue and it doesn’t burn your eyes or skin like some eye makeup removers do. Since going vegan in the beginning of the year, I’ve had to switch up my skincare routine to cruelty-free and vegan products. Pacifica has a ton of micellar waters, but this was available when I went to Target. How does the Pacifica Micellar Cleansing Tonic stand up against my favorite micellar waters? Read below!
It’s been a hot while since a favorites post! Quite frankly, I wasn’t into these posts anymore. It seemed like a chore to gather favorites and at one point I was gathering random things to use in these posts. That’s not what a good blogger does! But after a friend told me that they missed my favorite posts I thought I would bring them back. Check out my May Favorites Feat. Milk Makeup products!
Today I’m doing my first Lush review! How nuts is that? I’ve had this blog for two years (I know!!!) and I still haven’t reviewed any Lush products. I’m reviewing the brand new Lush Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask. These jelly face masks just came out on Sept. 1, and I snagged one of them during my last visit in store. Find out what I think of the Lush Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask down below!
We’ve all seen it in every magazine we’ve read: supplements will help your hair, skin and nails grow longer, stay pimple free, and grow stronger. I’ve tried biotin, collagen and multi-vitamins to help my nails grow faster, stronger and longer. But those three left me with acne, nasty hair, and no help in growing the strong nails that I wanted. I don’t know how I found out about liquid silica, but after reading only one article, I knew that I would give this a try. In that article, the author explained that they used liquid silica for nail growth and hair growth, but mostly for nail growth. They said that biotin hadn’t helped them grow nails, but liquid silica did. It was on sale on Amazon that week, so I said “why not” and decided to try it out. Read below for my 30 day update!
You thought I forgot about the Fortune Cookie Soap box, didn’t you? I totally didn’t. Unfortunately my box came in after the launch due to a shipping snafu, but since it’s cleared up, I thought I’d review the box anyway! Read my Fortune Cookie Soap Box Be Our Guest review down below!
It’s February empties time, which means me explaining my trash! Does anyone else think this concept is weird yet oddly satisfying? Looking at all the empties I’m accumulated during the month makes me feel better about my purchasing habits. It also makes me feel accomplished that I used up an entire product. Read what I thought about all these products down below!
January flew by so quick but yet lasted super long?? I feel like the month just started, but last week feels like months ago. That’s why I was surprised to see that I have so many January empties. Check them out down below!
As with most people, a new year means an excuse for a new you. It’s finally a time to try out new things: a new makeup look, new skincare routine or maybe a new signature scent. For me it meant focussing on what I really love. That meant a focus on skincare and fragrance. Check out what my January favorites are!
