The time has finally come to talk OIL! I haven’t discussed any facial oils on here yet because honestly…I’ve avoided them. In the past, all I’d experienced when using oils was an uncomfortable layer of grease at night that led to extra oily skin the next day. Things just didn’t seem to be working the way they should. Enter The Ordinary’s 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane, i.e., the oil of my dreams. I will be repurchasing this product in perpetuity, and here’s why:
When VIIcode contacted me about trying these eye masks, I was intrigued and excited to find out more. I had never seen any other eye masks that could be worn the entire night while I slept! I was envisioning waking up with eye masks halfway down my cheeks! Oftentimes eye masks have a tendency to make their way down my face compelled merely by gravity. Would these masks stay in place on me, a dedicated side sleeper? And on top of that, would they be able to deliver effective results?
I bought the Beta-Glucan Power Moisture Serum just as the fall weather was beginning to arrive, and I intended to begin including it in my routine to help fight the onslaught of winter dryness. I’d often seen other iUNIK users say that this was their favorite serum out of the whole range, so I’d had my eye on this particular one for a while. Finally, the time had come to slap it on my own face! So how was it, do you ask? Allow me to share!
It took me quite a while to try Glossier’s Balm Dot Com lip balms. The main factor that kept me away from them for so long was that I was constantly seeing naysayers online declaring that you were better off just sticking with plain Vaseline. I wanted to test them for myself because I saw lots of other happy users singing their praises of the product, and they seemed entirely convinced of its effectiveness.
As summer humidity slinks away we are left with cold, dry winter air that sucks the moisture right out of our skin. I immediately notice a change in my skin’s appearance when the temps drop significantly. For me, it is always an unwelcome change that I dread every year. However, there are ways that we can fight the effects of this colder change in temperature! Switching out some of our lighter summer skincare products can help combat dry, irritated skin issues that happen in fall and winter.
