February “Try Outs”

My “try outs” always consist of deluxe or regular sample sizes.  I get so many with my orders or because I specifically want to try out a product before purchasing the full size.  This month had a few stand outs that I will definitely purchase the full size, if I haven’t already. Advertisements

December “Try Outs”

I recently reacquainted myself with the very important lesson that pick and choose skincare is not always your friend.  After a lot of frustration with trying so many things and not being impressed I put everything aside and used an entire line for 60 days to see if I could hit the reset button on… Continue reading December “Try Outs”

GLAMGLOW capitalized on this by creating a spin off of their favorite masks and created these cleansers.  I have had them on my wish… Continue reading The Clay Mask And Why It’s a Classic

All About Samples And How to Get Them

Who doesn’t love a good bunch of samples? I have become a sample hoarder.  I have enough that I can actually box them up into three different categories: cleansers moisturizers/eye creams masks From the various monthly beauty boxes I was subscribed to, to my many Sephora orders and purchasing some on Poshmark and eBay I… Continue reading All About Samples And How to Get Them

Mario Badescu Did What!?

THIS is the affordable skincare line you should be using.  Forget the Aveeno, Oil of Olay, Neutrogena and other over the counter skincare lines, go right to Mario Badescu Skin Care.  I will gladly spend hundreds of dollars on one skincare product, that’s just me, but most either don’t want to or can’t.  Everyone has their… Continue reading Mario Badescu Did What!?
