My name is Marianna Risi and I am a recent graduate of West Chester University. I am a proud alumna of Phi Mu. I got into make-up while working as a costume and make-up designer and realized my calling was in cosmetics. I studied International Business with a Spanish minor and plan to become a licensed Esthetician by April 2018. When I'm not researching beauty, I enjoy cooking, writing and hiking. I would love to be a Brand Ambassador for a global beauty brand and travel the world.

Review for: 04 Peach - promotes brightness and evens skintone for light complexions more...
This product is phenomenal. I used to swear by Bobbi Brown's corrector in Light Bisque but found it made my dryness-prone under eyes look cakey. Because this Sephora one is gel-based it really helps with discoloration without looking thick or cakey under makeup. Plus it's under $20, so it's an absolute steal. 10/10 would buy again, love it.
Ipsy is somewhat hit or miss for me but overall pretty good. Some months there were definitely better products than other months, but for $10 a month you really cannot beat the value. I've discovered many products because of ipsy and have repurchased several because I enjoyed my samples, the discounts through ipsy are pretty sweet too!
I am still testing this out but so far so good! I have seen a decrease in my dryness and texture in my skin compared to weeks ago, it has made my forehead and cheeks especially smooth. A little goes a long way with this night cream, even on the neck. I have very dry skin and it absolutely drinks this up, and I love the seaweed as the star ingredient. I got this during the 25% off day of Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty, but I will definitely be repurchasing again for full price with no problem.
I am still testing this out but so far so good! I have seen a dramatic decrease in my fine lines and texture in my skin compared to weeks ago. It has also helped with my breakouts and helped reduce my acne scarring. I've never used a toner before this since I have very dry, sensitive skin but this one is awesome. I got this during the 25% off day of Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty, but I will definitely be repurchasing again for full price with no problem.
I am still testing this out but so far so good! I have seen a dramatic decrease in my fine lines under my eyes after applying this and my under eyes look so much better with concealer on than how dry they were weeks ago. Like other reviewers have stated, a little goes a very long way.

This stuff is life changing. I dab this on a pimple at night and I wake up and if it's not 100% gone it is far smaller and no longer red. I also have seen a dramatic decrease in my blackheads after applying this over my nose and chin, in addition to spot treating pimples. I am almost on my second bottle and I'm obsessed. It's awesome for its price and my skin has never looked this good before 11/10 in love.
I greatly enjoy Aqua Marina. I've tried many face cleansers from Lush and this one is one of my favorites besides Coal Face. I have skin that's on the dryer side and I find this works very well even though it is not moisturizing. I'm not super fond of having to make it a paste as it is a little messy, but overall it is an awesome product and I've seen an immediate positive difference in my skin's texture.
I love BB Seaweed! I've tried several masks from Lush and this one is my favorite by far. I have very dry, sensitive skin and this is exfoliating without being irritating. The ingredients, like in all the fresh face masks, are all natural and there's actual chunks of almond and seaweed in it. It also smells absolutely amazing, it feels very high end. 10/10 would reccommend.
I usually don't enjoy eye creams after only a few uses but I really liked this immediately. It reduced my super puffy eyes and overtime has definitely helped with texture under my eyes. It's not cheap, but it works. It's a tie for me between this and Kiehl's avocado eye cream.
