Hey Howl Pack

It’s Mae Polzine! I started this blog back in 2015 to be a place where I could be creative and share things that I love. So, I post a variety of things. I stream a variety of things (gaming, body paint, art, etc.) on Twitch multiple times a week, with stream highlights and all VODs posted on my YouTube Channel.

Lastly, join our Discord to chat with other pack members. We have a great and supportive community over there. I love talking with everyone in Discord as it’s a great way to connect. Also, I offer Twitch emotes, sub badges, and moreover on my shop page as well as my own merch.

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?

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

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 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

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.
