Bath & Body Works Mini-Haul: The Difference Between Body Cream & Lotion

First off, I want to say that absolutely adore this scent. I picked up these items at my local Bath & Body Works toward the beginning of this month and I’ve enjoyed them a lot. I usually go for the sweeter, more fruity scents—but vanilla is my guilty pleasure. This has become my go-to perfume.

Getting to the moral of the story, during the colder months, it becomes very important to moisturize and make sure your skin stays hydrated.

Bioré Charcoal Strips vs Bioré Pore Strips & Daiso Charcoal Mask + Reviews

In the past, I’ve used regular Bioré Pore Cleansing Strips on days when I feel that I should look my best. I never really thought that they were the most effective product on the market, but they made me feel as though that my face was really clean, and that is a very satisfying feeling. Over the summer, I tried the Japanese Charcoal Mask. I’ve read fantastic reviews on this product, so I was very excited to use it and see the results for myself. More recently, I received a package in the mail with the Bioré Charcoal Strips. In this post, I will review all three products and tell you which one is worth your time and money.  Continue reading “Bioré Charcoal Strips vs Bioré Pore Strips & Daiso Charcoal Mask + Reviews”

Everyday Makeup Look Using Affordable Products

The makeup you wear every day has to be subtle. It can’t damage your face and it can’t take very long to apply. Unless you’re an absolute pro, you probably can’t afford to do full face makeup when you’re running late to work. Here are the products I use when I’m in a rush and don’t want to look as though I’ve just rolled out of bed. This post is also a tutorial, so the products are in order of which I recommend using first.

You can also use a small amount of brow gel if you’re worried about your eyebrows staying in place.  Continue reading “Everyday Makeup Look Using Affordable Products”

Everyone has an issue with their skin: whether you have pimples, dark spots, blackheads or dry skin, you’re never satisfied. So many people and companies claim to have found the solutions to all of these. Maybe the solution is $300, a true miracle, or complete trash, but I would rather try to make a duplicate at home than waste my money.  Through the years, I have bought some products that claim to “work miracles” and I have tried others that people “swear by”. I turned a new leaf, and recently I have been trying face masks using all-natural ingredients that you can find around your house.
