Philosophy The Microdelivery Purifying Peel Review

I’ve never gotten an actual facial peel but I still remember to this very day the episode of Sex and the City when Samantha had gotten one.

Now Samantha was trying to de-age her skin a fair bit so I’m guessing she was looking to diminish fine lines, brighten her skin tone up, and perhaps fight dull, tried skin or uneven skin tone. These would be many of the reasons you’d consider a facial peel.

However, from what I’ve read, facial peels are pretty darn harsh on the skin causing all sorts of irritation and redness because essentially it’s peeling away one layer to reveal a fresher layer beneath.

But my skin isn’t an onion…I don’t have layers you can peel away at will. I like my layers thanks so much and I’m not out to remove any of them…maybe polish them up a bit, maybe exfoliate them, but literally burn them off using chemicals? No thanks!

Philosophy The Microdelivery Purifying Peel is Philosophy’s cure to a gentle at home facial peel.

Does it work?




Lola Lipgloss Review and Swatches

Do you ever feel like full color glosses tend to NOT act as a gloss? I can’t be the only one that thinks this. I mean if I purchase a gloss I’m looking for a shiny, glossy finish right? But sometimes when the gloss is extra pigmented chances are you don’t get that sort of finish…right?

Maybe it’s me but I seem to have the uncanny ability to pick full color glosses with absolutely ZERO shine.

Lola Lip Gloss is amazingly pigmented but forget a glossy finish….not happening.

I swear it’s the irony of my life that I sit in my office all bloody week and watch perfectly beautiful days go by but when the weekend arrives it rains.  WTH Mother Nature! Seriously?

I feel Summer is already over because it rains almost every single weekend. Where the heck is the fun in that?

Oh well..
