Obsession of the Moment: Facial Oils

Hey guys! Words cannot express how obsessed I am with facial oils right now.  I used to be apprehensive of the facial oil trend, believing it was best left to those with super-dry skin. That all changed when I got a few facial oil samples in my Birchbox last summer, namely the Caudalie Divine Oil and Marula Pure Marula Oil. The Caudalie Divine Oil is so luxurious, it consists of grapeseed oil mixed with argan oil and smells amazing. Unlike what I had previously anticipated, it did not leave my face a greasy mess but fully absorbed in about five minutes, leaving me with really soft and refreshed skin in the morning. The Pure Marula Oil was just as nice.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation Review

Hey guys! I'm sure you know by now what a fan I am of drugstore foundations (read my breakdown here), but I also have been trying out a few higher-end foundations lately. The first is the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation. Tarte is one of my favorite makeup brands because they only use natural ingredients but all their products are extremely high quality, which is rare for natural makeup lines.

Essential Skincare Ingredient: SPF

Hey guys! Today I decided to do another essential skin care ingredient post. You may have read my posts on antioxidants and peptides, and while those are very important ingredients, today's ingredient is definitely the MOST important of all. Yep, that's right, it's SPF. I really hope you're using some sort of SPF in your everyday skincare regime, it is beyond necessary to prevent premature aging and wrinkles.

Garnier Clean+ Nourishing Cleansing Oil & Blackhead Eliminating Scrub

Hey guys! I've been trying some new skincare products lately and I thought I'd write a little blog post and let you know how I've been liking them! Specifically, Garnier came out with a new Clean Plus line of skincare products. I don't normally go crazy for any particular line (I'm more of a pick and choose type of girl) but I was immediately drawn to this line because I saw they had a cleansing oil and I'm literally obsessed with oils right now.
