Makeup by 1D: Limited-Edition Beauty Collection

A couple months ago, I was fortunate to be able to review the first set of limited edition makeup tins by One Direction and Markwins. Now, they’re back with a new set of limited edition tins, each featuring a member of the band.

Review: KISS InstaWave Automatic Curler

KISS InstaWave

Hair tools are probably some of my favorite things. I have a drawer full of curling irons in various sizes, flat irons, hair dryers, and waving irons. My hair is very thick and coarse. Though it does have some natural wave, it also has a propensity to become a frizzy mess, making heat styling a must for me. My typical …

Review: Dr. Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit

Dr. Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit

I drink a lot of coffee. Over time, I’ve noticed definite discoloration of my teeth because of this and age. Unfortunately, I also have very sensitive teeth, so using standard drugstore whitening strips do not work for me. I’ve also tried whitening kits with trays, but also found those to be painful. I was a bit nervous about trying this …

Review: Adovia Anti-Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer

Adovia Wrinkle Cream

One of the things I look for in skincare is the inclusion of natural ingredients. As much as I love using a variety of things in my routine, I am also a bit hesitant about smearing a bunch of chemicals onto my skin. Adovia makes a wonderful line of skincare product based on natural ingredients, so I was excited to try …

Natural Face Favorites from the Drugstore

Natural Face Drugstore Favorites

As much as I love piling cosmetics on my face, sometimes I’m just not in the mood. Maybe it’s a day when I’m not feeling well, or I just need to run to the post office and the grocery store. Maybe it’s the weekend and I’m just too lazy to go through my full makeup routine. In those instances, I …

Memebox: Superbox #39 Foot Care 2

memebox: superbox #39 foot care 2

I know most people really think of summer as the time to take care of their feet, but my feet need constant care. Fall and winter are especially harsh because I find that with the cooler weather, my feet become more dry and cracked. It’s a constant struggle to keep them in good shape, but I suppose I should be …

Birchbox: September 2014

Birchbox September 2014

Last month’s box was a complete miss for me (and I chose it!), so I had my fingers crossed this month would be better. Pick Your Sample happened once again, and though I contemplated not making a choice, I ended up picking something at the last minute. I wasn’t overwhelmed by the items that were given as choices this month, …

Review: PureSol Konjac Facial Sponge

PureSol Konjac Facial Sponge

This is the second Konjac sponge I’ve reviewed recently, but I’ve really enjoyed using them. These sponges are such a great alternative to harsher products and are great for any skin type, but especially if you have sensitive or dry skin. I love that these sponges are 100% natural and biodegradable. They provide many benefits, including: improving overall skin texture …
