My Updated Skincare Routine – Autumn / Winter 2018

It is a Wednesday & it feels like I am doing nothing for the first time in quite a while. I have had the free time, but there has been a lot physical & mental energy spent on settling down in the Western Hemisphere while my next visa is pending. It has been a long time, no skincare talk! My routine has been non-existent recently, I just haven’t felt like it. I have moved continents & unsure how long I intend to stay, part of rebuilding a self-care routine & settling into my current lifestyle has been revitalizing my skincare stash. Oil Cleanser: Generic Coconut Oil Value: $4.99 – 14oz / 414ml Repurchase I feel like this defines how uninspired I have felt with skincare lately. I have resorted to using standard coconut oil that can be found on an Aldi shelf. I always have coconut oil on hand to use as a hair mask, my skin is not acne-prone so I can use it to remove make-up without any clogged pores. I have not …

Beauty Empties [02] | Spring 2018

Another time to dumpster dive! You can read my first empties post here if interested. I include reviewed & non-reviewed cosmetics from my usual skincare to hair care, along with some household scents [because I can]. I was surprised I had no makeup to contribute this time, but this is a skincare dominated trash bin.

Beauty Empties [01] | Winter 2018

I have got a full bin so it is that time again, trash diving! Otherwise known as finally throwing away some of the empty junk I have been accumulating on top of my dresser. While I have been a skincare addict for years, I have only begun to accumulate my garbage recently because empties are some of my favorite blog posts to read! Most of this will likely be skincare, along with some body & hair products I have used recently. I am including house scents because candles are just another hopeless addiction of mine. The Good: Origins Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay Missha 95% Aloe Soothing Gel Kind Natured Body Wash – Soothing Sea Salt & Bergamot Wet N Wild Photofocus Lash Primer Balea Enzyme Peeling Mask Essence Make Me Brow The Average: Innisfree Jeju Bija Anti-trouble Cleansing Gel First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Tosowoong Natural Pure Propolis Brightening Essence Le Petit Maseillais Déodorant Extra Doux – White Peach Batiste Dry Shampoo – Original Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil Micro-Oil Shampoo Drunk Elephant TLC …

The 3rd Annual Skincare Dundies: Stud & Dud Cosmetics of 2017

This year has been different for me in a variety of different ways, including skincare. I was not nearly as experimental with new products, I found myself returning to cosmetics that were familiar & loved. I minimized my routine, not even bothering with it some of the time. I took a different approach to the 2017 Skincare Dundies, it will not be as extensive or feature the latest cosmetics as in years past. The focus will shift to my absolute tried & true favorite cosmetics of each category, accompanied by the most loathed product I have ever slathered on my face. Let’s try something new together, shall we? Oil Cleansers Loved: Tosowoong Apricot Seed Cleansing Oil This cleanser was included in one of my very first blog posts nearly three years ago now, that’s hard for me to even believe. I praised it highly in a post where I compared multiple oil cleansers, however this year was the first time I had repurchased it in quite some time & I am questioning why I had …
