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 …

Review: Instanatural Cleansing Oil & Rose Hip Seed Oil

Instanatural Cleansing Oil & Rose Hip Seed Oil

My facial cleansing and moisturizing routine would probably surprise a lot of people. It can include up to twelve steps, depending upon how much time I have and what I’m hoping to achieve. The first step in my process, which is based upon a Korean routine, is using a cleansing oil. This is a product, however, that I was lacking. Instead, …

Review: Makeup by One Direction

Makeup by One Direction

In the late 90s and early 2000s, I was one of those girls that bought into the whole boyband scene. I was completely obsessed with the music, the merchandise, and Lance Bass’ terrible dance moves. Aside from cds and concert tickets, I spent my money on a wide assortment of totally ridiculous things, from magazines and posters to the more …

There was also the option to choose a specially curated box, which was a collaboration with The Everygirl.

Review: Oleavine Beauty Konjac Sponge

Oleavine Beauty Konjac Facial Sponge

In my quest for better skin, I’ve tried a lot of different things–from creams and scrubs to masks and serums. I have never, however, tried a sponge that wasn’t harsh and scratchy. (I’ll admit to being a fan of the Buf-Puf back in the day.) Recently, I’ve come to realize that harsh things only make my things worse, and aren’t the answer …

Review: Adovia Natural Facial Moisturizer #moisturizer

Adovia Mineral Skin Care Moisturizer

If you’ve been following my blog for very long, you know that I’m a product junkie, especially where skincare is concerned. I use a lot of products and like to try out different things. I stay on the lookout for products that are made with naturally derived ingredients, as I feel these products tend to work better for me. Just like …

Memebox: Superbox #25 Foot Care

Memebox Superbox #25 FootCare

My feet always seem to need some sort of care. It seems that no matter what I do, my heels are always dry and cracking. My cuticles are either growing halfway up my toenails or cracked and bleeding. I also love to forego socks in summertime, so sandals and other shoes are occasionally stinky! When Memebox offered their first foot care …
