Product Review: Soap & Glory The Ultimelt Hot Cloth Cleanser

      I bought this cleanser on a whim when stopping into a Duane Reade to get cotton pads. I've always wanted to try a hot cloth cleanser and the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser was at the top of my try list for hot cloth cleansers (but it's become rather hard to purchase online). So when I saw Soap and Glory's The Ultimelt, I said to myself "sure why not" (it even was on sale from $14 to $10 so I considered it my lucky day). This was my first skincare item that I purchased from Soap & Glory so I had no expectations and nothing to compare it to, but I was hopeful that it would be good given that I've heard good things about hot cloth cleansers in general. So I went home and used it for the first time that night.

Current Skincare Routine - Spring 2017

      I hope my skin doesn't retaliate when I say this, but lately it's been behaving and my breakouts have been at a minimum. I have a feeling it's because I've been less oily lately and have been using products that really hydrate and calm my skin at the same time. Two new to me brands that I feel like have really improved the texture and condition of my skin are CosRx and The Ordinary products. Luckily for me too, their products are so affordable! As you can see from the picture above, a good chunk of the products I've been using are from CosRx and The Ordinary. Now that spring is officially here, I've been using more watery serums and a lighter daily moisturizer.

Product Review: The Ordinary Treatments & Oils

      Up for review today are four products from a brand that I think it really changing the beauty industry. Sometimes it's hard to know whether a beauty brand is exaggerating the benefits of a product or just plain lying. I would like to think in an idea world that companies would put out an honest product and describe it as how it would work and the science behind it, but not claiming that it'll work miracles. I feel like The Ordinary line by Deciem (they call themselves the "abnormal beauty company), does exactly that which is clearly refreshing in the beauty industry that can sometimes be deceiving despite the glamorous packaging.
