Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub Review

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Oh Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub I want to love you but you’re just not suitable for my dry, flaky skin. I need you to be tough but you’re terribly gentle…!

I’m always so tempted by Aveeno’s brightening marketing strategy. Slap “brightening” on any skincare and I’m on top of it! Sadly, Aveeno’s Brightening Collection just isn’t something that’s ever really captured me.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub sounds terribly tempting but for dry skin users it’s not the one that you want.

L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask Review

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Need a little moisture in your life? L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask is on the case.

The biggest factor in aging is dry skin so you wanna keep your skin as moist as possible particularly those with drier skin. Inject as much moisture into dry skin as you possibly can to avoid skin looking dull, lackluster, and old. Toners, serums, mists, moisturizers…layer it all on. Find the best products that work well together and use them daily to nourish skin and keep it at its healthiest.

Unlike the toner I recently reviewed for you, I’m finding the new L’Occitane en Provence Angelica Instant Hydration Mask quite a nice little addition to my skincare regime to add a nice heaping dose of moisture to my skin.

Musings of the Day: Waterless Shower Anyone?

Even the good Doctor needs a little water in his shower!

Remember old dime novel sci-fi novels and flicks that would have occupants of a space shuttle jump into a cubicle for a water-free shower?

I mean the idea sounds rather fab. Jumping into a stall and coming out of it clean as a daisy? Heck, some novels, shows, and movies depict people going in with their clothes on and coming out with new clothes and a freshly washed body.

But honestly, I’m all for water. I take a shower in the AM and indulge in a calming, relaxing Lush bath in the evening on cold Fall and Winter nights. Fact is, I rely on water to wake me up! That splash in my face in the morning is just what I need to get me into work mode because facts is facts I am SO NOT a morning person.

What if water factored out of your shower experience?

Would you be cool with a waterless shower?

Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

The introduction of Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow Pencils had me quite excited. I really navigate towards cream shadows nowadays so I was hyped over these particularly because I had such great success with the Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams.

With the promise of a smudge-proof formula in a long-lasting eye shadow pencil plus some rather great shades of peach (I’m all about peaches) I was well on my way to loving on these.

Take a look!
