glossier mask duo review, glossier mega greens galaxy pack, glossier moisturizing moon mask

Uhhhhh wow, remember how I said a few posts ago that I usually don’t buy a lot of cosmetics? Well yeah, when I travel it all changes and I definitely buy a lot of cosmetics. I don’t do the buying in person though; I buy it all online and have it shipped to my house so it’s like Christmas or my birthday arrived early, except it’s from me (funnily enough I don’t give or receive many birthday or holiday presents).

Plus, they usually cost an arm and a leg (I’m looking at you, Sephora) considering that skincare is something that you need to use consistently to see results. I’ve been using sheet masks routinely for half a year now (…about the same amount of time between this post and the last one), and I can really see and feel a difference in my skin – it’s plumper, smoother, and hydrated. I’ve rounded up my favorite masks – I love them so much that I actually feel nervous when I’m down to the last one! Continue Reading

facetory four ever fresh: first impressions

I don’t do beauty subscriptions. I used to in the past, and I found them to be a waste of money. I won’t lie though, it was really exciting at first! I liked getting a range of new products to try out. But I quickly found that I wasn’t even interested in the products to begin with, and most of them would lay unused. I think I just know what I like – I mean, my base makeup and skincare has barely changed in three years, and the only thing that does is my eye makeup and lipstick. Continue Reading
