Review: the Pure Complexion Facial Konjac Sponge by EcoTools

A couple of weeks ago I had posted a picture on my Instagram of the Pure Complexion Facial Konjac Sponge that I had purchased at Walmart. I had a $2 off coupon for any EcoTools product and I decided to get this sponge, since I had never tried anything like it. A couple of my friends on Instagram asked me to review it, so I’ve been using it daily ever since. Here’s my review! What it is “One of the...

A product I regret buying: DERMAdoctor Picture Porefect (a pore minimizer)

Hi everyone! This post is about a product I regret buying. I try to research products as much as I can before buying, especially skincare, since I have sensitive skin that is very much acne prone. I read reviews on other blogs, on Sephora or Ulta’s website, I ask around etc. Despite all of this, I still end up with products I regret buying…This is because, of course, everyone’s skin is different and reacts in a different way. The most...

My biggest skin concern and what I do about it (+ a $50 gift card giveaway!)

If you ask me what my biggest personal skin concerns are, it’s definitely oily skin and pores. Pores are little openings in your skin that allow your body to flush out toxins: hair follicles, sweat glands and oil glands all end in pores. They regulate temperature and moisturize dry skin. Without these openings, your body wouldn’t be able to sweat and it would overheat. However, pores can also cause problems: dirt and oil buildup can cause oily skin and acne....

Guest blog: My pregnancy beauty routine (by Nadine)

At 9 months pregnant, asking me about my “beauty routine” is pretty laughable. I’m sure it will become even more of a farce after the little one arrives since I was never much the kind of woman who put on a full face of makeup daily. Most of the time, I’d put on makeup on to feel polished off, more confident or really pull a whole look together. Daily, it was minimal, just to conceal blemishes and look less tired....

Do NOT use baking soda to exfoliate your skin! Here’s why.

Yesterday, when I wrote about my favorite skincare product to exfoliate my face, a reader suggested using baking soda as a more affordable option. When I read her message, I wanted to scream. No girl, please do not use baking soda on your face! In fact, do not use baking soda at all for beauty purposes, at least not in homemade recipes! It sounds like a good idea, right? It’s cheap, natural and it probably works. So why spend your...

Your beauty question ANSWERED: what’s your favorite skincare brand?

“Kizzy, what’s your favorite skincare brand?” I get the question above A LOT. Readers and friends always like to know what my favorite skincare brand is and also what my favorite makeup brand is. This is such a difficult question for me to answer, because I try and use so many different brands and each brand usually has its hits and misses. I mostly only review the products I like, but I’ve also written about products that didn’t work for...

Haul! My recent purchases from Sephora, Walmart, Ross, CVS and TJ Maxx

Are you ready for a ton of pictures? I don’t usually show you my purchases this way, but you guys seem to really like my previous haul posts, so I figured why not! Keep in mind that this is a collective haul. I did not purchase these things all in one shopping trip or all in one day. This is actually a collection of purchases from the last month or so. If you see something that you’d like more information...

Beauty question answered: Why would you use a Vitamin C serum?

Hi everyone! It’s been a few days, huh? My goal is to put a new blog post up every day, but sometimes it just doesn’t happen. These last few days it just didn’t happen, I’ll save you my excuses… 😀 While I was ‘away’, I did get a beauty question in my inbox: “I’ve noticed that you’ve been using Vitamin C serums for a while. Why exactly and which brand do you recommend?” Thanks for your question! Yes, I’ve been...

Review: Michael Todd ‘Cleanse And Tone’ 3-in-1 cleanser, toner and makeup remover

If you have oily skin or acne, like I do, you might want to try the Michael Todd Cleanse And Tone. It’s what I’ve been using for the past month to cleanse my face in the evening. It’s a cleanser with activated charcoal in it, which helps control oily skin as well as unclogs pores and eliminates impurities, which, in turn, clears up acne. It’s basically a cleanser, a toner and a makeup remover in one, which sounds ideal to...

Review: Rodan + Fields ACUTE CARE for Expression Lines (overnight eye strips)

When I posted my review on my Rodan + Fields Anti-Age REDEFINE skincare routine the other day, I mentioned that I would do a separate post on their ACUTE CARE Skincare for Expression Lines. These are eye strips with Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid and SH-Oligopeptide-1 that you stick under your eyes before bed. ACUTE CARE is said to reduce the appearance of wrinkles immediately, but even more so after 10 applications when used along with the REDEFINE regimen. REDEFINE ACUTE CARE...
