Reviews: Sulwhasoo Age-Veil UV Protection Cream and Perfecting Cushion Intense

Today I unboxed and arm swatched eleven different sunscreens. Summer is coming to my part of the world, and my part of the world gets serious sun. That means it's time to get even more serious about sunscreen than before. I've been getting tired of my usual sunscreens, so I thought I lucked out when Sulwhasoo US included [...]

January 2017 Empties Report

It's a new year, but I still got the same old face, and that face still needs to have things put on it and cleansed off of it on a regular basis, so I've got another batch of empties to show off! There are some classics in here, some new (to me) items, and one [...]

August 2016 Empties Report

There's a bin on a shelf in my beauty closet where I hoard my empties until the bin is full. Then I take a picture of the containers before I recycle them. Usually that picture goes on my Instagram, but this time around, I felt I had more to say about the products I've used [...]

Review: Neutrogena Beach Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion SPF 70

Review: Neutrogena Beach Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion SPF 70

This summer, I discovered a love of frolicking in the surf with my son. I also discovered how poorly my precious Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel and my Biore Aqua Rich Watery Gel fit into my new beach lifestyle.
