Introstem Skincare review

Two Worlds Collide and A Star Is Born If two worlds were set to collide, we could only hope they would be the worlds of luxury and science.

First Aid Beauty Milk Oil Conditioning Cleanser review

I love makeup and all of the lovely things it can do. But when I'm home, I want it gone and I want my skin to be clean and soft and fresh. I want to see me, not my makeup. Thankfully, there is a product to remove my makeup while conditioning my skin: First Aid Beauty Milk Oil Conditioning Cleanser…

FabFitFun Summer 2015 Box review

I’ll admit, I was a bit lukewarm on the FabFitFun summer 2015 box when it first arrived. I’ve widely noted that this is my favorite subscription box. But when I looked at the contents, I wasn’t convinced I was going to love this one. Turns out, FabFitFun knows me better than I know myself. I was delightfully wrong – I…

Like all product junkies, I have certain beauty ‘issues’ and I am on a lifelong quest to remedy said issues by buying any and every product on the market. One of these issues: my fine, lank hair.

Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish and The Righteous Butter

Murad Anti-Aging Acne Regimen Review

I always believed that I would outgrow my acne one day. I believed that once I reached a certain age, I would suddenly have earned the right to enjoy beautiful smooth skin. What a lie that was!
