Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer Review

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer has wrecked my skin for the past several weeks. Holy crackers (my dad always says that lol don’t ask..)!

I made it my resolution this year that I’d start using a retinol and after a little research the most widespread recommendation says at my age a drugstore retinol is the way to go.

Needless to say I use, adore, and swear by Philosophy Miracle Worker Pads however, I wanted something a little stronger. I don’t yet have fine lines on my face but I’d like to prevent them and I thought a retinol would do great things for not only prevention but also evening out my skin tone and exfoliating my skin. Holy cow that last part was true…

Take a look!


Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel Coming Soon

Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel

Meet the new Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel that’s coming soon to Clinique counters everywhere (March 2014 to be exact).

Acne is a universal skin care concern…actually I have dry, dull skin but no issues with acne but I’ll switch with you any day if you do have blemish issues because I swear dry skin is the work of the devil.

Fact is, acne effects us all across all ages, genders, and ethnicities sometime in our life or even in our daily life. The number is smaller for adults but at least 20% of adult women and men suffer from acne issues and most likely if you’re one of them chances are you’ve tried a ton of treatments that can be a bit too harsh for your sensitive skin or even too costly if they are prescription based.

temptalia dupe

Have you met Christine’s (Temptalia) new and improved Makeup Dupe List?

You know that time in your makeup life when you find the perfect shade of golden peach blush only to go home and realize you have several hundred of the same color? I always wonder if it is a blessing or a bummer when this happens. Because I admit I have some sort of design to own every single shade of golden peach blush out there no MATTER HOW similar they are to each other! Where as other times I’m like, “Oh man, bummer, this is so the same color!”

Or how about those times you fall in love with a product but it’s been discontinued! And silly you, you didn’t purchase a back up! Now you need to head out there and see if you can find the same shade somehow, someway, it’ll become a life goal to re-discovery that long gone shade…

You don’t have to dedicate your life to the search though! Just head over to she’s done all the work for you! her new makeup dust list allows you to search for your dupe easily! So if you’re looking to see if that NARS Blush shade you love and know has some sort of dupe out there that you must try out from another brand here’s your chance to look it up and compare it to any number of similar colors! Or if your favorite Clinique Eyeshadow has been axed, now you can search out an exact dupe for it, less mourning time for you!


  • Just start typing the product name and Temptalia’s database will display a drop down menu to choose from.
  • Compare a swatch of your favorite shade side by side to other similar shades.
  • Quickly find out if the shade you’re searching is LE, permanent, or no longer available.
  • Save your product finds for later to Temptalia’s wish or vanity list.

It’s the easiest way to find a beloved shade’s dupe!

I kinda have to stay away from it, this morning I was searching for NARS Orgasm dupes and came across several hundred shades from brands like Clinique, Smashbox, and Wet n Wild…now I want to haul them. How diseased is that?

Febreze Wax Melts Quick Review

Febreze Wax Melts

I know, I know!  It isn’t beauty but I recently tried out the Febreze Wax Melts aka Tarts and I thought I’d give you a little info on these.

You might recall I told you about Glade Melts when they launched earlier in the Fall. I tried the Glade ones in a variety of fragrances but they are hecka weak…! Or my nose is broken.

I was skeptical about the Febreze Wax Melts due to this but…
