Women are always looking for better ways to care for their skin – and they have more than enough choices to go around. Beauty and skincare make up a $445 billion dollar industry with thousands of brands and millions of products (and services) all over the world. Choices range from everyday items (lipstick, moisturizer, sunscreen, mascara, etc.) to some of the most ridiculously expensive things money can buy. While having choices is certainly a good thing, it can get overwhelming at times–which is why we put together this article to help you make the right decisions for your skin. Today,...

Review: The best inexpensive face cream, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

The other day I mentioned my oily skin. As long as I can remember I have oily skin. My nose gets oily, my chin, cheeks…pretty much my entire face, except for the outer perimeter. That’s where it’s a little dry. I guess you could say I have combination/oily skin. Even with my skin type, hydration is always important. My skin produces oil throughout the day, however, I always make sure to moisturize in the morning. Olay contacted me a little while ago and told me about an independent test by the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) that showed that their Regenerist...

New favorite! Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser by GLAMGLOW

I have a new favorite, guys! A couple of weeks ago I ran out of facial cleanser and I happen to have a coupon for Parfumerie Douglas. So I went to the nearest Douglas store and asked the sales lady what she recommended for my oily skin. She couldn’t stop talking about the Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser by GLAMGLOW. She asked me if I was familiar with the brand, which I was (I love their facial masks) and had me try a sample in the store. I ended up purchasing the full-size bottle and I gotta say…I’m happy that I...

Why people with dark skin still need to wear sunscreen

It finally feels like summer here in The Netherlands and, of course, I’m taking full advantage of it. πŸ™‚ The other day I was last minute shopping for sunscreen. I went into a (never been before) drugstore and because I didn’t want to waste time looking around, I asked a sales associate where in the store I could find it. Before answering my question, she looked me up and down and I could almost hear her think: ‘why would she need sunscreen?’. That brings me to this post. Just because I have dark skin, that doesn’t mean I don’t need...

IT’s on! IT Cosmetics is QVC Today’s Special Value #ByeByeBreakthroughs

As you know I love IT Cosmetics. Over the years this brand has become a staple in my makeup collection. The best way to buy IT Cosmetics is during a sale on their website, or at Ulta (you’ll earn points) or on QVC. And guess what? The brand is QVC’s Today’s Special Value today. πŸ˜€ Today, it started at midnight ET, you’ll be able to purchase a 5-piece set for an awesome price. As I’m writing this, I don’t exactly know yet what the price will be, but IT Cosmetics has been on QVC before and it’s always of GREAT...

Sephora’s Spring Bonus Insider Shopping Event has started!

I’m alive, guys! I’ve been missing over here, because (mom)life kinda took over… We’re currently staying at my family in The Netherlands and I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and family. Also, my little one was sick for a while. There just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes! I have been active on my Instagram (@Kizzyonline), but I haven’t gotten around to update the blog. Anyway, I’m here now. You probably know this already, but I feel like it would be wrong for me to not mention it: Sephora’s Spring Bonus Sale has started! πŸ˜€ The...

Ulta Beauty’s Biggest Event of the year starts today!

I don’t post about beauty sales that often anymore. After a while of trying to keep up, I noticed that there are just way too many going on simultaneously. Covering all, or even just the big ones, became almost impossible for me. So now I just post the ones I think are really worth mentioning, like brand friends & family sales, QVC’s today’s special value or any MAC, Sephora or Ulta sales. πŸ˜€ The biggest sale at the moment is definitely Ulta Beauty 21 Days of Beauty for Spring 2017. It’s their biggest sale of the year: it lasts, you...
