Do I Look More Youthful? Pixi by Petra Skin Treats: Collagen & Retinol Serum and Collagen Eye Serum Review

Do I Look More Youthful? Pixi by Petra Skin Treats: Collagen & Retinol Serum and Collagen Eye Serum Review

One thing I have never been good at in my twenty five almost twenty six years of life is skin care. And this has been the first year I've started to see my skin actually age. Nothing crazy but the fine lines in my forehead became noticeable with and without makeup. And under my eyes look like I'm a skeleton at times with how dark they are. So 2019 is the year I actually take skin care seriously. I already started it with Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer last month and I thought I would continue on with trying new things starting with some skin treats from Pixi by Petra, specially the Collagen & Retinol Serum and the Collagen Eye Serum.…

Is Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer Worth the Hype?

Is Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer Worth the Hype?

I have been trying to limit the number of beauty gurus I watch on YouTube, mainly as if I watch so many videos on a similar product I tend to break my low buy. One of the gurus I still watch is Tati Westbrook and in almost every video the primer she raves about is the Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer. So I wanted to ask is this primer worth the hype?…

Trying out the Entire Fourth Ray Beauty Skin Care Collection

Trying out the Entire Fourth Ray Beauty Skin Care Collection

ColourPop has expanded into skin care with a sister brand called Fourth Ray Beauty. After years of making makeup they wanted to create a separate brand that focuses on the skin under the makeup. They believe that skincare should be more than a concoction of potentially harmful and harsh chemicals, more than “magic in a bottle” and free from overpriced, empty promises. So far they have five skin care products and you can get them all in a bundle for $54 (total value of $60, so you save $6 by getting them all together). They also have a few other items available on their website, but I'm just going to be focusing on the skin care products. As I've mentioned in the past, I have never been great when it comes to a skin care routine. Mainly as I can never figure out what works for my skin or what all to include in a routine. So I thought this collection was a great idea because it's all bundled together.…

Halo Beauty (Round 2) Kiwi Seed Skin Booster: Same as Before or Actual Improvement After 60-Days?

Halo Beauty (Round 2) Kiwi Seed Skin Booster: Same as Before or Actual Improvement After 60-Days?

Halo Beauty has come out with their second product which is similar to the first only swap out two of the ingredients for three new ones. Now I held off on my review of the product considering last time I reviewed the Hair, Nail, and Skin Beauty Booster I didn't notice any negative effects until my second bottle. So I decided to wait until I got through two bottles before posting my first review on this product. Now last time I think my issues were due to the ingredient saw palmeto as it seriously messed up my hormones and monthly cycle. Including changing my skin type from normal to insanely oily, and broke out all of the time. And my period just stopped being regular, and once I stopped taking those boosters everything went back to normal. So I was hesitant at first but considering it was most likely that one ingredient and it's not in the Kiwi Seed Skin Booster, I thought I might as well try it as I do want to take something for my skin to make things nicer.…

First Impressions on First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Acne Clearing Charcoal Cleanser

First Impressions on First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Acne Clearing Charcoal Cleanser

Anyways, this led me down the path of trying to find a cruelty free acne treatment or skin care product that I could use to help make my face clearer. And I came across the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Acne Clearing Charcoal Cleanser at Ulta for $24. Since everything at the drugstore doesn't really work for my skin, I thought I would give it a chance. Plus I liked that the product is allergy-tested, gluten-free, nut-free, oil-free, soy-free, suitable for sensitive skin (something that I also have), and nano-free.…

Custom Skin Care Routine with Curology Acne Cream and Rose & Abbott Moisturizer

Custom Skin Care Routine with Curology Acne Cream and Rose & Abbott Moisturizer

Another thing I've been working on improving is my skin on my year of starting to feel better about myself. I've been trying for years to find something that helps me fix my skin so I don't feel the need to always have to wear foundation. One thing I've always disliked is my nose, either it's covered in blackheads or the pores are huge/dark. Plus there's just texture and unevenness all around on my face that I didn't love. But nothing I tried seemed to do anything. So when I heard about custom skin care products that were cruelty free, I was all over it. The two products that I've been trying for around three months are Curology and Rose & Abbott. Curology is an acne cream while Rose & Abbott is a moisturizer.…

Zoella Beauty Jelly & Gelato Collection Haul

Zoella Beauty Jelly & Gelato Collection Haul

This is the first time I've ordered the entire collection for Zoella Beauty, and that was mainly because of the fact I was ordering beauty products from the UK. Not everything can be shipped, but now it's available online at Ulta so I got everything... well almost everything. I didn't get the makeup bag only because I have so many from Ipsy. Other than that this is literally every product in the Jelly & Gelato collection!…
