I like that this gel moisturizer will last me for a while. A little dab of it goes a whole loooong way which is always great with a product! This was good to use after scrubbing my face with the GinZing wash that worked more like an exfoliating scrub, so this smoothed out my face afterwards. Great cooling, soothing feel that leaves your face bright, smooth and clear. Great as a base before caking on makeup too!
I didn't have an eye cream in my daily routine before, but with this product, I realized what I've been missing. I usually ignored my eyes and then freaked out and rushed to use as much concealer and foundation as possible to hide shadows and bags after some late-night study sessions and stressful moments. However, this eye cream is perfect for preventative care and for snagging those annoying puffy bags without having to put tea bags on your eyes or scourge for the perfect makeup solution. Feels cool and light going on. Helps with bags and darkness. Brightens under your eyes. Helps you feel fresh and renewed and ready to go out without needing makeup to hide that problem spot.

This is a product I never would have reached for myself, but I was pleasantly surprised! It really does feel fresh and cool on your face and the caffeine inside did seem to boost my morning energy during my routine. However, though it goes on smooth and feels nice, it was tough to get off because it kept bubbling and bubbling further off my face and into my hair line and it left little pieces of the microbead-like pieces on my face that I had to towel off. (Not a big deal, but I did feel like I needed to clean my face after cleaning my face) I also wasn't a huge fan of the clementine smell, but for anyone who wants Ginzing, that's what you're going for! I like the caffeine and scent for a morning boost or daily routine, but it was a little too much work to scrub off thoroughly for me to use daily. I could see me adding it to a longer routine on the weekend as a once a week pick me up when I don't have to worry about rushing to school or work. Left my face feeling smooth, smelling like the product and with a noticeable glow! (I received this product free courtesy of Influenster)
Vaseline is one of those things that's probably already in your house somewhere or that your mom tells you to use but you ignore the suggestion. I got a giant tub of Vaseline in a voxbox a few months back and I decided to use it for a bit instead of chap stick to give my lips a break and I'm never going back. It's like a miracle smooth and keeps your lips smooth and free from dryness and cracking. It's also great on the skin as a highlighter to pick up makeup and for dry skin areas.
As someone who is allergic to face wash, finding good staples for a solid morning routine is a bit tough. How do you tackle blemishes and acne and keep your skin oil free without face wash? THESE PADS! This is my favorite product to brag about because I'm always getting compliments on my skin and getting asked what face wash I use when I actually can't use one at all. These are scent-free and are alcohol pads with a great surface size and amount of dampness. All you need is one daily or every other day to wipe down your face to keep it sweat and oil free and keep it smooth and dry. It absorbs all the issues and dirt your pores collect. Highly recommend!
Less than five dollars for liquid eyeliner? No way that could work, right? So wrong. ELF liquid eyeliner started as a quick fix when other liquid eyeliner ran out, but it ended up being even better and now it's the only brand I buy. Great for adding that cat eye or popping on a wing when you're done with your eyeliner. Easy to use, goes on well and lasts until scrubbing it off
When it comes to OPI, I've never quite found a "bad" color, just some not to my taste, but always suitable for someone. This color is one of my go-to's right now. It's a burgundy just on the cusp of turning black and it's perfect for every season and gives that pop of red without being too bright, flashy or distracting. I love it for a great professional but trendy look and as always, OPI is an amazing brand that goes on smooth, dries well, lasts long and is well worth the splurge!
Borrowed this from a friend so that I had a non-chemical, natural and safe item to use as a body wash after getting a tattoo. Not only did it clean well and create a great lather, it also absolutely did not irritate the newly tattooed area and ensured it was washed thoroughly. I've since researched and shopped the brand based on this great experience to put ore natural products into my routine and I was delighted by the variety of scents and types of products they offer. This one is a great base and tester to use as a trial run for the brand!
I've used this product since I was a pre-teen starting to clean my face. It's fresh and invigorating. It goes on clear but foams nicely so you can see that all skin surface is covered and gets rinsed clean. Love the scent and the texture. Leaves you feeling fresh and renewed. Removes makeup well too!
Smells great and goes on creamy and smooth. I love that it comes in handy sizes so the big ones can stack together letting you try all the different scents and the mini ones are great to pop in your purse or luggage when you're on the go! This particular scent is good for those who like traditional scents or are familiar with cocoa butter or might need allergy friendly simple smells. One of my go to products.
