Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner Review

Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner

I admit I used to love Seabreeze, still do actually, but man is it drying! Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner long since replaced my obsession with Seabreeze when I was introduced to it by a friend many, many years ago.

I admit my slight obsession with Seabreeze was that exciting feeling of swiping a soaked cotton pad over my face and just staring at all the gunk that clung to it after. And I think in high school most all my friends and myself swore it was doing something miraculous for our face. Yeah, the miracle was it was soaking moisture from our skin leaving us a little too dry and tight but when you’re a teenager chances are you’re dealing with oily and acne thus Seabreaze is like a dream come true.

Anyway…

Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner has long since replaced my odd addition with Seabreeze. It’s cheap, effective, and although I admit to using a variety of toners and mists, I still come back to this good old fashion remedy.

L’Oreal Voluminous Power Volume Black Smoke Mascara Review

LOreal Voluminous Power Volume Black Smoke Mascara Spring 2013

L’Oreal introduced their new L’Oreal Voluminous Power Volume Black Smoke 24H Mascara for Spring 2013 and I have to tell you I was hesitate about indulging.

My experience with the Voluminous Mascara Collection has been rather poor and in general, I’d be the first one to admit I haven’t found many mascaras, both high and low end, that have truly wow’ed me over the last several years.

But this year I seem to be on a roll! First the new Telescopic Mascara and now this little gem from L’Oreal and I’m one very happy mascara girl (P.S. Another one to think about, the new Tarte Mascara launching with the Tarte QVC Today Special Value, more on that soon).

Take a look!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind the Lifter Foundation Review & Swatches

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind the Lifter Foundation

I wasn’t sure I’d like the new Maybelline Instant Age Rewind the Lifter Foundation since I had a rather bad run with Covergirl Olay Tone Rehab.

These foundation with built in serums and primers just don’t seem to work out for me even though I have dry skin. You’d think my skin would love a formula like this but unfortunately, they seem super heavy and greasy on me.

I tried the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind the Lifter Foundation with the idea in my head I’d dislike it but it isn’t as bad as I thought!
