About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I used the BB exfoliating scrub when that was in a glass jar and it had the peach bark crushed up in it. I have for 3 yrs been using the wipes for my MU removal with oil and love them.

    The Neutrogena Hydro Boost spf 15 is legit! I love the regular hydro boost and this version is almost identical on the skin. I think I like the regular version a tiny bit more…but gotta have that spf!

    I wouldn’t mind trying some Burts Bees stuff.

    I am a fan of the Garnier Clean + Nourishing cleansing oil for dry skin. I was recently looking for it on Ulta, walmart and other places on line and on the store and wasn’t able to find it to purchase it. Now I don’t know if they are replacing this formula for the Cleansing Gel. The reviews on Garnier are the same for this product. I better go to Target and buy like 5 to stock up just in case they change the formula…. 🙁

    These look to be great products for a DS range and they are getting better all the time.

    Absolute fan here of the BB peach and willow formula. I have the scrub in the squeeze tube. Leaves my face feeling super clean without stripping it or making it dry. Good for the winter, great for the summer. Cannot recommend it enough!
