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!
