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!
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!
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!
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!
I’ve always wanted to try products from Glossier, but I always convince myself that I don’t need them. I’ll either say that I already have a cleanser that I already like or I do the math to figure out whether the $18 Milky Jelly Cleanser is cheaper per oz. than my current $22 cleanser. Why would I do this when I want to try the brand so bad? I’m not sure. But I finally convinced myself to try something from this brand, so for Christmas I received the Glossier The Supers serums. These serums receive a ton of hype on YouTube, on blogs and on Instagram, and I was skeptical about trying these. But did they live up to the hype? Read my Glossier The Supers review down below!
I’ve always wanted to try a cleansing tool, but the Clarisonic was too much money and I’ve heard way too many horror stories to be comfortable investing in one. I saw the Foreo Luna Play at the checkout lines in Sephora and Ulta, and after pointing it out to my mom, I received one for Christmas. I wasn’t sure if I would like it at first or if it would ruin my skin on the first try. It turns out I feel the complete opposite. The Foreo Luna has worked wonder on my skin!

It’s the time of the month again! Today I review for you the Fortune Cookie Soap fall box. The theme this season is the Princess Bride. I’ve never seen the movie completely through but I’m familiar with the characters and the jokes. Let’s get into the review!
The end of my spring semester marks one thing: the summer Fortune Cookie Soap Box! The summer boxes have always been my favorite box to receive since the scents are fruity, sweet and get me revved up for summer. This box is no different. With a Finding Nemo theme, this box reminds me of the beach, tropical paradise and the ocean. Check out what I liked most about this box down below!
I’ve been receiving the Fortune Cookie Soap Box since summer of 2014, and it never disappoints. Each box is unique, has a wide array of scents and products and gets me revved up for the upcoming season. Check out my review of this Lorax-themed box below!
