Shiseido IBUKI Smart Filtering Smoother Serum

I love trying out new products and I'm most excited when they turn out to be revolutionary products that change my skincare routine. I was able to discover the Shiseido IBUKI Smart Filtering Smoother Serum courtesy of Influenster. The claim for the Smart Filtering Smoother is that it helps to improve shine and visible pores instantly. The Smart Filtering Smoother acts as a serum, but has a finishing touch that helps to create photo-ready skin.

Misconceptions About Oils ft. Bio-Oil Review

Growing up, I had extremely oily skin. This led to acne and feeling insecure about my skin (my story here!). I went through countless beauty products, different prescriptions and overall lifestyle changes. But barely anything changed. When I was younger, one of my mom's friends had recommended a facial oil and I was very skeptical that it would help my troubled skin. When oily or acneic skinned people hear about applying oils to the skin, they cringe and run away in fear. I did too, but trust me when I say there are definitely misconceptions about oils. In fact, oils can actually help to hydrate, protect, purify and help balance the skin. They also contain concentrated ingredients so a little goes a long way! (P.S. The facial oil actually helped my skin!)

March 2017 Empties

I haven't done an empties post before, but I've finished quite a few products last quarter. I've been trying to clear out the clutter in my life and that includes my messy desk! You can read my previous post on what I've started with. I've only saved what I used up for the month of March so going forward, I'll be more diligent to save up all products I've used! For those that are not familiar with Empties Posts, it's a round up of products that bloggers have used up for the month. So, it's bloggers essentially taking pictures of their trash of the month. If you're looking at these posts on the outside, this can be pretty strange. I personally like reading empties posts because it makes it feel like there's proof as to how much someone likes a particular product.

Green Beauty With Acure Cosmetics

I didn't start getting into the world of beauty until I was 13 years old. When a few of the girls in my classes were already familiar with foundations and powders, I had just gotten my first mascara. Fast forward a few years into high school, I was very interested in a more clean and healthier lifestyle which also included my beauty products. Since then, I've tried out a few natural skincare brands (such as MAHALO) as well as a few makeup brands and since I've started blogging, I've always been interested in green beauty. I've noticed that a lot of people tend to steer clear from natural brands as they're often seen as inferior to the more mainstream brands that they're used to. That may have been true in the past, but green beauty has come a long way!
