File under lazy. I like skincare that is not a process. The Clarisonic, while excellent, was too much of a thing. If I’m going to use any electrical device near my face on the daily, it’s going to be my Sonicare. Continue reading
I love using body oil in place of body lotion. I think its more comfortable and more effective at moisturizing, especially early in the morning. I’ve used so many over the years, usually really inexpensive ones from Whole Foods, like jojoba or sesame oils. But sometimes I like to use one that’s a bit more luxurious and special.

Hey, hey, hey. I hope you have been enjoying the awesome month that is October. This week, I’ll be focusing on everything that is foundations + primers and everything in between.

But I wasn’t sure I’d like it, so I didn’t want to shell out money for the small bottle + shipping. Until I stumbled upon it in real life at Shen Beauty a few weeks ago. It was right there in front of me, I had to try it, I had to see what all the hype was about. Continue reading
