The Two Salves By Which I Swear… 

As a sufferer of Sjögren’s Syndrome, I often get dry, raw, painful cracked areas of skin on my body. I’ve tried countless lotions, oils, and creams and they’d either not work or irritate my skin and make things worse by causing burning, itching, and/or blistering.  Then one day, I was browsing Etsy, and I came…

My First Day Using Meaningful Beauty

Obviously, I’m not seeing results this quickly, but I thought I’d share my initial impressions of the products.  1. A little goes a long way. It only requires 1-2 small pumps or a small squeeze to get enough product to do your entire face. For the eye serums, I needed an amount about the size…

Moving On 

We decided against continuing with Native Essence Botanicals through this month because we’ve seen no improvements from the products other than moisturized skin.  I placed an order today for Meaningful Beauty, and hopefully, those products will actually work. 

New Nails

Mum did my nails today,using my glass file from Mont Bleu. Aren’t they lovely? I like how well gold and taupe go together. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills “Subculture” Palette- A Review 

My Subculture palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills arrived today and I nearly wept over the beauty of the colours once Mum had gotten the palette out of the box and opened it. Each colour is equally beautiful, and it’s impossible for me to choose a favourite, though Cube and Electric (the two duochrome shades in…

After three weeks of using these products, the…

Celebration Time! 

I managed to buy the new Subculture palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills a few minutes after it launched. 

Native Essence Botanicals- Week Two 

As you know, I’ve been using the  Vitamin C COQ10 Facial Serum, Regenerative Facial Serum, Antioxidant Facial Serum, Witch Hazel Facial Toner With Hyaluronic Acid, and Licorice Arnica Eye Balm from Native Essence Botanicals.  After two weeks, I have not experienced any improvements with expression lines or fine lines. The skin under my eyes hasn’t brightened any further, nor…

July BoxyCharm Reveal! 

I know I had a negative opinion of BoxyCharm back in the past when they were operating under their old policies with lengthy waiting lists. They have since scrapped all that for better policies, and so, I subscribed. I received my first box yesterday, and I must say, I definitely got my money’s worth!  I got a Bare…
