More favorites from The Ordinary! Check out part 1 if you missed it here.
The Ordinary is a new skincare line from the brand Deciem. Their approach to skincare is no-frills – no fancy packaging or filler ingredients. Just active ingredients that do what they are supposed to. I was extremely intrigued by this brand, but more so by the price point. These products are very affordable so I jumped on the opportunity to try some products out and here are my thoughts!
Also, I have made an Instagram account to go with this blog so it will be easier to get updates! Follow me there 🙂 @loveneepa Continue reading “Review: My Favorite Products From The Ordinary: Part 1”
I’m extremely picky about concealer. As someone who does not use liquid foundation daily, I place a lot of importance on having a good concealer. I have searched high and low for the perfect one to cover hyper pigmentation while also looking natural on the skin. A couple years ago, I actually had found one that I really liked and it was a super random one…the Revlon Age-Defying Targeted Dark Spot Concealer. I used this one for years and loved it. I can’t even tell you how many times I have repurchased it. But, then I noticed that many stores were not carrying it anymore and I started to get worried that it would get discontinued. Why does this always happen to me? *Sigh* Continue reading “Review: Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer”
Our relationship started years ago. I was searching for the perfect foundation and after almost giving up entirely, the Milani Multitasker came into my life. I’ve never been the biggest fan of liquid foundation. High-end, drugstore…you name it, I’ve tried it. It didn’t matter the formulation or the method of applying…I could always feel it on my face and I hated that. Emilynoel83 (OG youtuber) talked about this powder and said it had the coverage of a liquid foundation, so I knew I had to check it out.
Daily sunscreen usage is one of those things that every skincare expert says is an absolute must to protect your skin and it’s one of the most effective ways in preventing signs of aging. For years and years, I kept hearing this advice but never really took heed because I hated all sunscreens that I tried. Too thick, too smelly, too greasy…the list goes on. I knew of the benefits but I wasn’t willing to risk my skin breaking out so I put off trying to find one that worked, especially since it seemed like I had tried them all.
In a recent trip to Austin, the topic of sunscreen came up between some of my girlfriends and one of them mentioned the EltaMD UV Clear being her absolute favorite. She said she found it through all the amazing reviews it had. I was definitely interested so I looked it up and she was absolutely right…raving reviews. It actually baffled me that somehow this product had gone under my radar, because I am always reading about skincare. I immediately purchased it and after trying it for the first time…never looked back. Continue reading “Review: EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46”
Korean skincare, where have you been all my life? I came across this world of amazing products earlier this year and it’s being wowing me ever since. It seems to me that aside from just creating products with great ingredients in them, they really want you to have a spa-like experience when you are doing your skincare routine. This cleansing balm is no exception.
CeraVe has been one of my absolute favorite skincare brands for many, many years. I experiment with a lot of skincare products but my cleansers are something I have never messed around with. I came across this brand when I decided to completely scrap all my harsher products and start from scratch. I wanted to focus on products that were going to be really gentle and hydrating for my skin.
Do note that I use cleansers to actual clean my skin and not for makeup removal. I am a firm believer that removing your makeup and cleaning your skin should be two separate steps. Therefore, I do not discuss the makeup removing abilities of these cleansers because I don’t use them for that purpose. Continue reading “Review: CeraVe Cleansers”
