Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Ultra Cleansing Mud Mask Review

During winter break, for some ungodly reason, I decided to leave my amazing bentonite clay mask at school. About a week and a half into being home, all those little pimple things that aren’t actually surface pimples, but they feel like pimples under your skin started to form under my cheeks and I hated the feeling!

Oily Skin Holy Grail: Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Normal/Oily Skin Review

I have high and low for a face moisturizer that will properly moisturize my face but won’t leave my face oily since I already have oily skin. Finally, about seven months ago, I discovered Boots No7 day cream for normal/oil skin at Target. For $14, I was a bit skeptical but willing to try. The packaging is sleek and chic, and the moisturizer does exactly what it claims to do. It moisturized my face without leaving a sticky or oily feeling. Guys, I did not think this…

Belif: The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb Review

During one of my trips to Sephora, I decided to redeem my 100 points with this Belif true cream moisturizing bomb. It’s a travel size and quite handy when you’re planning an overnight trip. I used the face cream everyday for two weeks straight, and it definitely provided moisture to my face. However, it made my face feel sticky afterwards which I did not like at all. A little definitely goes a long way, and I feel like this travel size will last me quite a…
