Review: Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre

Hi everyone! Earlier this summer I was on the hunt for a good but inexpensive moisturizer. I kept on seeing the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre and hearing great things about it, so I decided to give it a go. Continue reading

May Empties and Throwaways

Hey guys!
I’m going through my empties this month. I’ve somehow only gone through very few products this month, as opposed to the past few months where I’ve had a ton of empties.

Sheet Mask Heaven

Hey everyone!

You might not remember this, but the first few times I used sheet masks didn’t turn out so well.

I figured I’d go for a primer, as I currently only have one (Revlon’s Photoready Perfecting Primer) and E.L.F. seems to be known for their primers. Continue reading
