@drdennisgross C + Collagen Brighten & Firm eye cream. It brightens - with the help of a bit of pearl but I would NOT call it shimmery by any means. It firms - albeit a bit of time is needed. It hydrates - adequately, though it's not the first eye cream I'd reach for if my eyes felt extremely dry. It smooths - as in, I've noticed a bit of improvement of texture around my eyes which can only be a good thing. Great pump packaging, great scent (there isn't one), and great to use. Dr. Gross always knocks it out of the park and this is no exception. They just make good stuff, what can ya do? I was lucky enough to preview the full collection last fall - heyyy @carolinehirons - and I've been slowly incorporating them into my stash. You know I love the serum, and I do, but the final piece of the puzzle that I beliiiieeeeeeeve is launching next month has really stolen the show. I won't say what it is, but let's just say I'm surprised I like it so much considering the category it's in doesn't often wow me! Stay tuned ๐Ÿค™

I've been coating my arms and chest in the @bareoriginskin Golden Chocolate Oil after bathing (massaged into damp skin) over the past couple of weeks and it makes me so happy. It's a very raw and slightly earthy cacao (not milk chocolate) and salty bourbon vanilla blend that doesn't feel fragrant or perfumed. The argan oil base is enriching, softening, but immediately sinks into the skin. If you like May Lindstrom's The Good Stuff, I think you'd like this as well. Nena offers three sizes, all of which are incredibly reasonable in price. So far I've used this exclusively on the body, but I could see it being pleasurable as a face oil too! Thank you to Nena for sending your creations over all the way from Sweden! PS: all of the ingredients are ethically sourced which means so much to me โค๏ธ

@odacite Po+R (Pomegranate and Rose Geranium designed for hydration) is STUNNING. If I'm being very honest, I'm not sure my expectations for the Pure Elements were as high as they might have been for some of the other products in the range, but I'm blown away. This combines pomegranate seed oil, Rose geranium, and Vitamin E - that's it. It feels considerably rich in texture and like it's packed with more nutrients than a regular face oil. I've been adding a drop or two to my @africanbotanics Neroli-Infused Marula and the combination is earth shattering. Deep hydration (not just nourishment), comfort, balance, and most noticeably, a super-pure glow. Pomegranate seed oil is overflowing with omegas and moisture, but it's not overwhelming for someone with oilier skin. The rose geranium does not feel fragrance-y at all, it has an unrefined and pure quality to it. I personally appreciate the included literature which lets you know where the ingredients were sourced. Turns out the pomegranate comes from Germany and the rose geranium comes from South Africa! Needless to say, my experience makes me incredibly curious about the rest of the collection. Eating my assumptions breakfast, thank you very much. PS: thank you Mo for the lovey package. I'm a fan!

Products I've been loving: @yuripibu Artichoke Power Essence. An immediately plumping milky-serum consistency. It somehow managed to both clarify and deeply nourish and Hydrate my skin at the same time. Oils sit beautifully over it, and it contains an immense blend of nice ingredients. Plus, look at it! So chic. Thanks Sophie for sending this over!

Products I've been loving: @leahlaniskincare Citrus + Citrine Toner. Filled to the brim with Brightening citrus extracts, but Neroli and Sweet Orange seem to be the main characters in terms of scent. It's much sweeter than the aforementioned African Botanics oil, but rich with Neroli nonetheless. I find it immediately mood elevating, but it's also made a great base for oil or milky serum consistencies. Non-sticky, non-drying, and non-irritating all describe the experience thus-far. Stunning. The citrine gemstone at the bottom makes me smile ๐Ÿค—

Products I've been loving: @africanbotanics Neroli-Infused Marula Oil. I swear I could taste orange rind when I took a deep inhale with this coating my palms. It's incredibly softening, glow-from-within enhancing, balancing, and aromatic. The packaging makes me drool and the experience made me stop in my tracks. Speechless, quite frankly. Thanks for sending this over Julia!

A review of the @caneandaustin 10% Retexture Pads and a discussion about acetone in skincare on tophcam.com now. โ˜˜๏ธ Thanks to @carolinehirons for inspiring this conversation. I look forward to your review!!! I also still find it so funny that we were both planning a review at the same time ๐Ÿ˜‚ PS: thank you to the Cane + Austin team for sending these over. .

Happy birthday @jordansamuelskin โœจ Thanks for making Hydrate because it's quite literally my favorite hydration serum of all time. There's nothing about it I dislike, but everything that I do. It's aloe based instead of water based, there's a stable form of Vitamin C (SAP), and it is brimming with hydrating and soothing plant extracts. It's $29 too - an extremely fair price for a product that I use nearly every single day. It's perfect. .

This video is long overdue. So many of you kindly expressed how much you enjoyed my previous "Get UNready with Me" video that I wanted to create a part two - but going far above and beyond the predecessor. I tried to replicate the atmosphere I create for myself in this video. Iโ€™m such a sensorial person that I need every aspect of my surroundings to be the right mood. I hope you find this video enjoyable and grounding <3 The link will be in my bio!

It's very rare that I fall for a brand quickly. It's especially rare when it's for a brand which prides itself in streamlined formulas. Most of the time I'm like, "cram every plant or flower I've never heard of in the bottle and I'm happy!" I don't think that'll ever go away, but I have formed such an extreme respect and adoration for @oylnatural over the past couple of weeks. Every. Single. Product that I've tried has immediately made me stop, step back, look at the bottle with eyes wide open, and continue use with much more vigor and pleasure. There is not a product I have used thus far that hasn't impressed me beyond the level in which I approached it. Although, to be fair, I set my expectations slightly lower than normal going into trying the brand. Not to say I didn't think it would be interesting or effective, but I certainly didn't mentally approach the products the same way I would for May Lindstrom or de Mamiel, if that makes sense. I'm not ashamed to eat my words, especially when the products and brand are clever and useful. The Face Wash feels, smells, and works the way a cleanser twice its price usually does. The Hydrating Face Mist is lightweight and refreshing hydration without stickiness, heaviness, or feeling like you went through a car wash. The Body Scrub (in Litsea Basil) became my favorite body scrub after one use. There hasn't been a body scrub I've used that is as effective with such little product and with copious amounts of balmy softness left behind - ever. The Lip Balm (in Manuka Latte) smells identical to the sensation you get when you open your bag of coffee grounds in the morning. It's more of a lip butter that has more creaminess than waxiness, but it's comforting and softening nonetheless. The Exfoliating Manuka Mask is unlike any mask texture I've ever used. If I seem like I'm gushing, I am. THIS is how you do green beauty that looks great, is made with great ingredients, has a practical function, but won't cost you an arm and a leg. The word impressed doesn't seem to scratch the surface. Thank you to Sophie and Andrea for allowing me to experience these fantastic products over the past month or so. They are truly phenomenal.

@demamielskin Pure Calm Cleansing Dew. My entire being feels cherished and comforted when I use this. It also soothes any sections of irritation on my skin while softening it and leaving with a tremendous glow. It's as much aromatherapy and self-care as it is a really damn good cleansing oil for morning time or second cleanse use. The rich amounts of blue tansy are obvious in the way it smells and the soft emerald tones of the oil itself. If you like cleansers that are very "treat-y," I think you'll love this one. It's grown on me to the point where I constantly reach for it and have to force myself to use other things in my trial bin. I think I've said the same thing about the Votary cleansing oils as well... if that tells you anything ๐Ÿ˜โœจ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐ŸŒˆ

My dearest friend @lizalaskabeauty sent a care package that arrived yesterday. She passed the @oneloveorganics Vitamin B cleansing oil on to me after finding she didn't reach for it. I double cleansed with it last night, once this morning, and I'll probably cleanse with it again tonight. I'm in piรฑa colada heaven. It leaves the skin so creamy and soft. Melting melting melting into a puddle of tropical scented syrup. Thank you Liz! Brb, off to shop the rest of the collection ๐Ÿ‘€ .

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง"Textures" by Jane Scrivner ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง
(Clockwise from Top):
๐Ÿ• 'OO' Over-Oil Cream - A moisturizer that's specifically designed to go over an oil. Genius. It smells of fresh rose water and leaves the skin looking sleek - there's no other way to describe it. It looks like a fresh coat of paint - smooth, luminous, but hugs the surface. It has a demi-matte finish and would be lovely for all skin types. I tend to reach or it during the day because sunscreen smooths over it beautifully. I'd describe the texture as a creamy milk. ๐Ÿ•“ Nourishing Cleansing Balm - I remember seeing @salihughesbeauty with @carolinehirons in an "In the Bathroom" a year or so ago and immediately wrote it down when Caroline described Jane as very "English spa-y lady." It's a delicious cleansing balm. Eucalyptus, clove, and lemongrass all fill my bathroom up with the most delicious aroma. It obliterates makes. It annihilates grime. It comes with an amazing mitt that effortlessly wipes away any traces of impurities. I love it! Great as a first and/or second cleanse. ๐Ÿ•– Masquerade - I haven't tried this one yet but I'm putting it on my face the second I'm done with this post. Along with all of the products on this tray! No waste up in 'hurr!
๐Ÿ•™ Skin Elixir - A nourishing yet balancing oil serum. Aromatic. Calming. Glowy. Smooth. A really great option if you want a refined jojoba serum. I like it most during the evenings when my skin is a little inflamed or congested. Super lush.
I've had such a pleasure using pieces of @janescrivnerskincare's collection for the past couple of months. She does "English spa-y lady" really well, just like Caroline said ๐Ÿ‘โค๏ธโœจ

My homage to mid 90's through early 2000's fashion photography continues. I love when they "broke the fourth wall" and showed the studio setting and equipment. Annie Leibovitz's work around that time comes to mind. Anyway, I was starting my ritual and it wasn't until I went to line my products up for this picture that I realized most everything is green. Oops.
I double cleansed with @tataharper then @votarylondon. I love a double oil, especially when I'm trying a new acid just to be sure I have a bit of extra cushion. @caneandaustin sent over their Retexture Pads and I had been craving a strong glycolic for a while. For my skin, 10% is a bit strong at times. Other times, it's a piece of cake. I air on the side of caution regardless because it's very easy to overexfoliate - especially on my skin. There was a bit of tingle but no burning or intense stinging, which is always good. Alcohol free too.
I misted with @farmacybeauty cause it's been a long day y'all.
I'd say I reach for my @vintnersdaughter the most for a post-exfoliation use. Whenever I do a semi-strong, I know it'll help the serum absorb to maximum capacity and ensure that any inflammation is quelled. Plus it's heavenly and incredibly softening and energizing to the complexion. I love.
Eyes are @caudalie
Moisture is @tataharper Reparative - which I'm still in love with as much as I was the first time I tried a sample over a year ago. I'm on my second full sized bottle now. VIB Rouge is coming up so I may get another one to have as a backup. Oops ๐Ÿ˜‡
