It’s been A GRIP since I’ve done a beauty review. If writing a post in my head while driving or taking a shower counted, I would have done five of these in the last month. But until Google or Elon Musk creates some sort of mind meld app that transcribes your thoughts, I’ll probably still be woefully behind.
To make up for the seriously long delay, I’m coming in hot with a crazy long post with 10 total reviews. Yes, 10. It took me forever but I’m trying out the new format so I think it should make it easier to bounce around. . In full disclosure, I get a lot of these products sent to me to try out (surely the brands thought I’d get it together more quickly) but more than half of the stuff I try out never makes it over here. And that’s not because I am always running behind, it’s because I didn’t love it enough to share it. So while it may seem like I’m giving everything a thumbs up, it’s more that I think you’d rather here about what you should try than what you shouldn’t. Although, I’m sure that would be helpful too. Maybe I’ll do that over on Snapchat or IG stories. Let me know if you want to hear what I ditched too.
But enough about the stuff I tossed, let’s get to the good stuff. When it comes to how I rank or judge products, I am a sucker for anything super moisturizing. If it feels like as cold towel on my face, I’ll probably love it. If it smells great, I’m a sucker. And if it’s easy to apply or use, consider me hooked. My skin is combination of dry/oily and I am prone to stress breakouts. If there’s anything else you’d like to know about any of these or how my skin reacts to them, just drop me a comment or feel free to email me ([email protected]), I love hearing from you all!
