Oh, TJ Maxx, you get me in trouble sometimes.
A few weeks ago, I went into TJ Maxx to look for some clothes. I came out with no clothes (warranting a trip to Target next door) and with cosmetics instead. One of those items was this box of lip masks by Jean Pierre Cosmetics.
Well, I’ve reached this point.
Starting now, I will be embarking on a three month long no-buy of skin care and makeup products. Admittedly, I bought some things in “preparation” for this drought period, but hey… it’s the effort, right?
At the beginning of the new year I decided that I wanted to bring a series to the blog. I love doing review and haul posts, but I wanted a little more regularity to add in to the content. I love reading bloggers’ posts about monthly empties, hauls, and the like, but the one thing I really love to read is about their favorite products of the month.
I blog mostly about beauty products, which was obviously intended, but I have found that I like blogging about lifestyle topics, too. So, with my new series, I’ve decided to Read more

I’ve worked with OZ Naturals in the past. Some things I’ve loved (and plan to buy in the future) and some things just didn’t fit with me well. Nevertheless, the US brand has a lot to offer consumers and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them again!
This time I was sent the OZ Naturals Ocean Mineral Facial Cleanser. If you’ve been following my blog, you know I have a soft spot for cleansers. I don’t know why I love them so much, but being able to wash off makeup, dirt, oil, and other impurities is just so satisfying.
In the past I was the person with single eyeshadows… maybe duos at best. I was never a palette girl. I mean, what do you do with that may eyeshadows??
Well, here I am, about to gush to you about how much I absolutely love this palette. Strap yourselves in ladies and gents.
On a recent order for a fresh batch of makeup and skin care, I purchased the Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in BE106. Admittedly, I didn’t need a new lipstick–I have a collection in my bag already–but I’d read such great reviews that I had to try it myself.
Spoilers: I may be in love.
I’ve been nominated not once, but twice for The Beauty Blogger Award! Once was by Just Being Julz and the other was by All About Leanne. Each time I’m nominated for one of these blogger awards, I’m so happy and flattered that my little blog is getting recognition from other bloggers. I may not be able to do every single one, but I try my best!
The rules for The Beauty Bloggers Award are to answer the questions given, nominate 10 other beauty or fashion bloggers, and give them questions. Read more
I really love cleansing foams. I double cleanse at the end of the day (using an oil based cleanser first, followed by a water based foam cleanser) and the second step is one I always look forward to. I had a back stock of my Murad Pomegranate Foaming Cleanser, but as I was running out, I wanted to find a Korean alternative that was, preferably, more inexpensive.
I stumbled across the Missha Strawberry Latte Cleansing Foam and, at only about 5 bucks, figured why not?
Propolis is an interesting little skin care ingredient. It’s actually a resin found in trees that honey bees use as a type of “glue” to help form their honey combs. It’s been used in skin care for it’s antibacterial and healing properties, making it useful for those with acne and redness.
That’s exactly why I was so excited to try out the Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Essence!
