Review: Skin & Co Roma – Truffle Therapy Whipped Cleansing Cream

What It Is: Cleansing Cream

What It Does: Cleanse, Purify, Nourishing, and Brightening.

Active Ingredients: Sulfate-free, Sweet Almond Oil, Chamomile, Black Winter Truffle Extract, and Mallow Leaf

Verdict: I can’t recall if I was sent this in an Allure Beauty Box or if this was part of a Fab Fit Fun Box, but whatever the case is, the first thing you will notice about this cleanser is the AMAZING SCENT. It simply smells so luscious and expensive, and I guess it’s no surprise that it’s made in Italy. This cleanser is silky smooth, not a gel, so it’s perfect for those that have dry skin. I was a bit hesitant at first since my skin is oily but despite the cleanser feeling oily/nourishing it actually didn’t leave my skin feeling oily at all. It actually felt rather moisturized so that’s why I think this cleanser would especially benefit those who tend to have drier skins. I really look forward to using this at the start and end of my day. Like I said, the scent is simply so luxurious that you can’t help but think that you’re being pampered when you’re using this product. I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a cleanser or wanting to try a new one out.

Review: Skin Inc. Supplement Bar – My Daily Dose of Glow

What It Is: Serum

What It Does: Restores skin suppleness, smooths, and reduces fine lines.

Active Ingredients: Vitamin A, Chlorella, and Hyaluronic Acid

Verdict: You know I’m a huge fan of Vitamin A, so the moment I saw that this serum contained that, I knew it’s promise of better skin would be fulfilled. Vitamin A revives your skin and it’s clinically proven to help restore skin’s youthful appearance, tackle dullness, and combat any environmental aggressors. Chlorella is a form of algae that helps reduce pigmentation and reduce redness. And of course no serum would be complete without hyaluronic acid, it’s basically the ingredient that helps with suppleness and smoothing. Basically this serum is a triple threat to help combat all your skin issues and is proven to give you a better appearance as soon as one day! All you need is three drops daily prior to moisturizer and before you know it you’ll have amazing skin. I really love this product and highly recommend it, especially if you’re trying to turn your skin around and combat dullness, pigmentation, sun damage, and fine lines.

Product Review: Ghost Girl Greetings

I’ve been eyeing Ghost Girl Greetings merch for awhile now. I’ve been desperately trying to purchase the mug with the cute Annabelle/Chucky/Jason/Ghostface/Pinhead faces on it, but due to high demand, I always get to the site when it’s already “Out of Stock” (West Coast woes, yo). So, when the makeup bag with the same cute horror face combo became available I decided to snag it asap, and while I was at it, I decided to pick up the Freddy Krueger inspired lip balm I’m Your Chapstick Now in Coffee, because, why not?

Now, I’m very picky when it comes to lip balms because I need them to be a certain type of softness and consistency (meaning not sticky nor pulling a Houdini and disappearing in 20 minutes either). The good news is, that this lip balm surpassed my expectations. The moment I applied it, I felt as though my lips were embraced by a soft cloud of coffee sweetness. It was comforting, smoothing, and just plain blissful. To say that I’m in love with it is an understatement, to say that I wish to replace ALL of my lip balms with this one would be accurate.

It was such a pleasant surprise to be so pleased with the lip balm since my whole reason to purchase from their online store was for me to get the makeup bag (which is utterly adorable and I recommend any horror fan who wishes to carry their makeup or essentials in style to buy it!).

Overall, these won’t be my last purchases from this shop and I’m still holding out hope to some day own the ever elusive mug I pine for. A girl can only dream.

Review: Glossier – Ultralip in Portrait

What It Is: Hydrating glossy lip balm

Active Ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid, Meadowfoam, Jojoba, and Watermelon oils

Verdict: Nothing kicks off the start of summer like transitioning from a matte lipstick to a shiny glossy one – and now with mask mandates being lifted at most places, you can finally show off your newly minted glossy lips. What I adore about this Glossier formula is that it’s incredibly shiny but without the sticky ickiness that comes from traditional lip glosses – not to mention that the colour selection is PHENOMENAL. The majority of of the hues are universally flattering meaning that you can’t go wrong with any of them! This formula doesn’t bleed at the edges and leaves your lips feeling pillowy soft and nourished while also looking incredibly beautiful. So go ahead and kick your matte liquid lipsticks to the curb – summer is officially here and Glossier’s Ultralip is what should be on everyone’s lips.

Price: $18

Review: Paradox Lucky Stars Blemish Patches

What It Is: Blemish Patches

What It Does: Visibly reduces the size of pimples and helps promote healing.

Active Ingredients: Hydrocolloid, Calendula, and Tree Tea Oil

Verdict: I’ve been wanting to try these blemish patches out ever since they were sent to me, but lately I’ve been blessed with clear skin. However, not so since the humidity levels have been insane, so I finally got to use them and honestly, look how freaking adorable they are! Unlike other blemish patches you can easily sport these outdoors because a random black star positioned just so on your face will give off major glam Marie Antoinette vibes. But enough of me gushing about how darn cute they are – the real question is: do they work? I can wholeheartedly say that YES THEY DO! These patches truly work wonders! They suck out all the gross pus and impurities while you’re sleeping or going out and about your day allowing the temptation to pick or squeeze said zit to diminish. And I know how tempting picking can be! For my particular zit, it went down with one patch kept on overnight. But by the second one, it made it disappear completely. I cannot recommend this enough if you have a pimple and wish to banish it stat. Not to mention that no one would be none the wiser of what you’re truly concealing beneath the black star.

Price: $18 (for 40 patches)

Review: Belif – The True Cream Aqua Bomb

What It Is: Light weight gel-cream

What It Does: Hydrates and nourishes skin

Active Ingredients: Aloe Vera

Skincare Concerns: Dryness, dullness, and uneven texture

Verdict: When scouting for a moisturizer, I’m looking for two things: that it hydrates my skin and that it’s light enough not to clog my pores. This moisturizer perfectly fits the bill. It’s light and gel-like substance but it isn’t as watery as most moisturizers aimed for oily skin are. It still feels rich without feeling too heavy. In fact, it completely absorbs into the skin leaving it feeling fresh, hydrated, and glowing. It’s truly a tall glass of water for your skin!

Price: $38

Review: Purlisse Watermelon + Charcoal Purifying Cleanser

What It Is: Purifying Cleanser

What It Does: Banishes dirt but hydrates skin.

Active Ingredients: Watermelon, Vitamins A, B6, and C, Charcoal, Green Tea, and Aloe Vera

Verdict: This has easily become my newest favourite cleanser. First of all – it smells divine – like you’re being pulled right into the summer months with a mouth watering watermelon scent that will make you feel like you’re biting into the most exquisite slice. The best thing about this cleanser is that it helps ban dirt and oil without ever stripping your skin of its precious essential oils. You’re left with hydrated skin, never tight or dry.

Price: $16.20

Review: Mudmasky – Leave Me On Winter Mask

What It Is: Leave On Moisturizing Mask

What it Does: Protects, nourishes, moisturizes, repairs skin and also helps with anti-aging.

Active Ingredients: Linoleic acid, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oil, and Moroccan Lava Clay.

Verdict: I gotta be honest, the cream itself was alright, but it really wasn’t anything to go crazy about. I didn’t see much difference using this cream as opposed to another one. Although if you’re looking for a light moisturizer, then this may be up your alley. Or if you’re someone who’s been having skin problems because of wearing facemasks, this moisturizer has anti-acne ingredients that will keep the dreaded “maskne” at bay. So, this moisturizer has a lot of merits, but I just personally wasn’t too crazy about it because in comparison to others that I’ve tried and based on the price, I don’t think it’s a must-have, however, if you do face some of the issues that I’ve stated above then you may want to check this out.

Price: $44.40

Review: Sisley – Masque Creme A La Rose Noire

What It Is: A rich moisturizing masque.

What It Does: Instantly restores youthfulness and plumpness to the skin.

Active Ingredients: Black Rose, Padina pavonica, and Alkenegi calyx extracts, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, and Red Vine.

Verdict: Full disclosure, I thought this masque was one you left overnight, apparently, you should wipe it off after fifteen minutes, however, my review reflects me keeping it on overnight. A rich, ultra moisturizing and fast absorbing cream. I love that it leaves your skin feeling silky but never greasy. This is a major plus for me since I have oily skin. I use it mostly at night on my forehead and neck and always wake up to perfectly smooth and hydrated skin the following morning. I highly recommend this if you’re looking to invest in a very rich masque that guarantees results.

Price: $172

Review: Erno Laszlo Exfoliate & Detox Pore Cleaning Clay Mask

What It Is: Pore Cleansing Clay Mask

Active Ingredients: Bentonite Clay and Calamine.

Verdict: Having oily to combination skin, I’ve been battling with excess sebum for quite some time now. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for clay masks that help zap excess oil from the skin as well as help minimize pores. This product glides on easily and it doesn’t make your face feel like it’s going to crack when it dries down. The drying time is very minimal, I left it on for 30 minutes, but you can do with 20 minutes. Once I washed the mask off, my skin was so incredibly soft and glowy. I highly recommend this product as it leaves your face feeling silky and hydrated as well as eliminate any excess oil.
