BROOKLYN BOTANY: BOTANICALLY-RICH SKINCARE ON MY SHELF

As I’m kinda a Brooklynite now I couldn’t pass on supporting local business in Brooklyn Botany. Let me tell you I’m not a fan of scrubs whatsoever. Yes, I usually have one in my bathroom but it’s more of a ritual than an actual treatment. Soak in bath, light some candles, apply hair mask and do a nice thigh massage with a scrub like it will cure all of my cellulite in one session. For exfoliation, I’m all about AHA/BHA…

KAT VON D LOCK IT FOUNDATION AND CONCEALER: REVIEW

I love to play with my makeup and try something new. Foundation and concealer are core essentials, they create that perfect canvas, perfect complexion especially when you naturally don’t have one, like me. All my life I was struggling with even skin tone. First, there were acne scarring, dark spots, later redness started to rear its ugly head. And not to mention my dark and very visible veins under both eyes (hello, genes!). In my early twenties, all I wanted…

30 DAYS MASK CHALLENGE: HOW I TRIED TO MASK EVERY DAY FOR A MONTH

As a beauty and recently skincare addict I’m trying to try so many new things but having only one face kinda a bummer so a lot of stuff is piling up in my drawers, gets stuffed in Sephora makeup bags in dark corners of the closet or end up in weird places like a toolbox (true story!). With masks, it’s even more frustrating cause I see that ”don’t use more than 1-2 times a week” and religiously follow this instruction.…

JOINING GLOSSIER PINK-HUED HYPE

I was reluctant at first to buy something Glossier. A lot of fuss but are these products made by beauty editors really that good? Later when I started to notice how extensive their rep program is (seeing it almost every day on Instagram in different profiles) I finally gave up. Pretty pink bottles and all the hype around Glossier brand was impossible to ignore anymore and during my next relaxed stroll down NYC SoHo streets, of course, I popped up in…

LANEIGE BB CUSHION HYDRA RADIANCE AND PORE BLUR

I’ve never been a foundation aficionado. Eyeshadow junkie – yep! Brow nut – sure thing. Blush freak – maybe. Foundation – nope! It just never felt right on my skin to wear layers of foundation and choosing the right shade always was such an exhausting experience. With Laneige, I made a leap of faith and bought it online on Sephora without even doing a lot of research like I normally would do. Oddly enough it paid off. Laneige BB Cushion Pore…

FEBRUARY EMPTIES 2018. THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE MEH

The Good Bumble And Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil. Bumble And Bumble made an amazing shampoo and conditioner. It was only travel sized bottles 60ml but it was enough to impress me. Added to wishlist. Innisfree Jeju Gardenia. This little purse-sized hand cream was my favorite to-go product. It absorbed really quickly, left my hands very soft and neat looking, without gross greasy feeling. And it smelled so good! I’ll be coming back for this little thing. Shea Moisture Shea Butter.  When I was purchasing…
