Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser and Acid Toner Review

In case you didn’t know, I have become a huge fan of the skincare brand Mario Badescu. I discovered the brand a few years ago and have tried quite a few products of the brand. I have been using their Acne Fighting Cleanser since I first tried the brand out. That cleanser has helped my skin out so much and has done everything it claims to do. However, for the past 6 months or so, I’ve been feeling like my skin needs have changed a bit. Finally, a few months ago, I decided I wanted to incorporate some products that would hopefully help to brighten up my complexion; which is why I chose the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser and the Glycolic Acid Toner.

Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation Review

It’s been quite some time since I’ve tried a foundation from the drugstore. I believe it’s been well over a year and quite possibly even more than two years. For the longest time I had been using the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation but I’ve just been bored with it and wanting to try other foundations. I tried some samples of other foundations from Sephora, one from Becca and one from Laura Mercier, but they weren’t quite what I was looking for. I thought about trying some foundations from the drugstore since I was tired of spending $40 but I wasn’t really sure which foundation to try. Well, I was finally able to try out this Maybelline foundation (my mom tried it but didn’t like it so she just gave it to me) and right away I was pretty impressed with it. Now, after using it for a few months, I do still like the foundation but sometimes I have a love/hate relationship with it…

Time For A Holiday Break....

For the past few years I have been taking a break from blogging for the month of December. This time of year can get hectic and stressful so I really like to just spend this time with family. I'll be back to posting content in January so make sure you come back then. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Years! :)

Benefit Defined and Refined Brow Kit Review

I wouldn’t consider myself to be “brow obsessed” but I do like my brows to look full, defined and fairly natural. My favorite brow product has been the brow kit from E.L.F. but every now and then I like to try out new brow products. I was pretty excited when Benefit announced that they were updating their line of brow products earlier this year. I have tried out their Gimme Brow (which I love) so I thought this would be a good opportunity to test out some new and different brow products. I decided to purchase this kit because I liked the purpose and products that came with it. I know some of these they already had but changed the packaging and/or formula while others are completely new.

Tony Moly Rice Sheet Mask Review

The time has now come for my last Tony Moly review on the masks that I recently purchased. Well, last one until I purchase some others to try out. I’ve loved trying out these super affordable masks and, even though I haven’t loved all of them, they each have helped my skin out in some way. Obviously different masks work for different people and their particular skin needs. Today’s mask is one that is meant to clear skin; which I am super excited about. I actually don’t have much acne at all right now but I still love using products that will help to keep it that way.

Tony Moly Pureness 100 Pearl Sheet Mask Review

Today’s review is of course on another Tony Moly sheet mask but this time it’s from a different range. All the masks I’ve been doing so far have been from their “I’m Real” range (click HERE to see them all and my last mask next week will be from the same range) but today’s mask is from the “Pureness 100” range. This one is another pearl mask just like the first one I tried. I was curious to see if and how they would be different. I wasn’t too impressed with the other pearl mask so I was really hoping this one would be different.

Tony Moly Aloe Sheet Mask Review

So far the mask’s I’ve been trying out lately have to do with brightening and clearer skin (check out my other Tony Moly mask reviews by clicking HERE). However, today’s review is on a mask that is supposed to moisturize the skin. I don’t have very dry skin but it can get drier at certain times of the year and depending on the types of products I’m using (e.g. using lots of acne products can actually dry out your skin). Right now it’s the change in weather that is making my skin look a bit more dry and dull so I thought it’s the perfect time to try this mask out. I have to say, this mask, out of the Tony Moly masks I’ve tried so far, has surprised me the most and could quite possibly be my favorite yet.

Tony Moly Seaweed Sheet Mask Review

Today I’m writing yet another review on one of the Tony Moly sheet masks I purchased recently. I have written two other reviews already which you can check out HERE. My third review is on their Seaweed “Skin Purifying” mask. I’ve tried other masks that help to purify the skin before, and loved them, but I don’t believe I’ve tried any with seaweed before. I was very interested in seeing how this mask performs and I’m happy to write that I was very impressed.

Tony Moly Makgeolli Sheet Mask Review

Recently I purchased some facial masks from Tony Moly and did my first review last week. I first tried out the Luminating Sheet Mask, which you can check out HERE. The second mask I tried out was this Makgeolli Skin Purifying Sheet Mask. As I stated in last week’s post, I wasn’t too impressed with the Luminating mask so I was a little uncertain about whether or not I was going to like the other masks I had purchased. However, after trying this mask I was so much happier and had more faith in this brand. It really shows that you shouldn’t judge a brand by one product because not every product will work with everyone’s skin.

Tony Moly Luminating Sheet Mask Review

A few weeks ago I decided to purchase some new skin care products. I did some searching and decided that I wanted to try some Tony Moly facial masks. I hear all the time how Korean skin care is one of the best out there so I thought I’d try some of these masks out. I purchased six of them (most from the “I’m Real” range) and today I’ll be reviewing the “Luminating” Pearl Mask Sheet. I ordered all these masks off the Ulta website and according to their site this is a “new” product (I didn’t see it on the Tony Moly website). I was a little disappointed because this package already had a tear in it when I received it, so I was worried that all the serum would be gone or dried up, but luckily there weren’t any problems.
