Face masks are such a treat for the skin because they do a job that not any other sort of product can do. They tighten and brighten the skin in a way that can’t quite be described and they leave the face feeling extra fresh. As someone with oily acne-prone skin, it is nice to feel that a product can help a bit with preventing breakouts. Even though face masks don’t work a miracle on my pesky skin, I do still enjoy them for their deep cleaning abilities. These are a list of my tried and true favourites.
Another quick and dirty review featuring a great, fantastic, awesome, magical, amazing… you get it, liquid eyeliner. The product in discussion: Essence Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. I have been on a bit of an Essence kick lately because my local Shoppers Drug Mart has a great selection of their stuff and the prices are amazing. This specific eyeliner goes for $3.99 and I don’t believe anything in their line goes for over $10. The low prices should not deter you away from the goods though because everything (at least what I have tried) is of pretty great quality.
In the beauty world, the change of seasons also comes with a change in skincare routines and even lip routines. These are the big players when it comes to lip product hydration. These are the products I rely on when the temperatures drop or really, any time my lips suffer from extreme dryness. I especially like them as night treatments as they really prep my lips for the matte lipsticks I put on my lips during the day.
My apologies for the surprise hiatus, I know I said that I would be back after finals but man, it was nice to just completely relax for 2 whole weeks. The holiday season is always a great time to recover from the year and recharge for the upcoming year. This break, I got to spend time with visiting relatives and catch up with old friends. I also started marathoning a couple of new shows, which is always exciting. Overall, it was a break that was much needed and left me feeling excited about the new semester and new year.
Also, over the break, I reached 5,000 views on my blog. I was so incredibly excited when I saw this because it is a pretty big number! Thanks to those who have ever stopped by and supported my little humble abode on the Internet. Here’s to many more!
