"REVIEW: Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash.
I use this fluid mostly in conjunction with my Mia 2 to ensure all makeup is removed. It foams slightly and cleanses pretty well. I wanted to try this brand as it claims to produce eco friendly products that are free of parabens, artificial fragrances etc. The Sea Kelp and Tea Tree Oil are the 5th and 6th ingredients listed respectively.
The number 1 thing I have to say about this is that 'avoid contact with eyes' is in caps for a reason; lawd this thing burns the eyes.
Is it worth it? Once you don't get it in your eyes, yes.
Available at all Jenn's locations for $26.50 for 8.5 fl. oz".


I finally tossed the bottle this week. Mind you, I have at least three face cleaners going at a time so this may not last you that long if you're using it consistently. As stated previously I really enjoyed using this with my Clarisonic Mia 2. That combination really leaves your face clean.

So would I repurchase? No. Here's why:

For some strange reason, a quarter way through use the product starts to congeal. This makes it a bit of a pain to get through the pump and looks pretty gross around the dispenser. No bueno.

I recently purchased the soap bar version ($10.95 for 5 oz.) so we'll see how that goes.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.


There's only one item here that surprised me...but let me not get ahead of myself.
Y'all know exfoliators are a must in my skin and body care routine so the Bath & Body Works 'Lavender & Sandalwood' Clay Body Scrub and Coco Shea 'Coconut' Richly Nourishing Body Buff (thanks to the Mistress!) should come as no real shocker. Both smell amazing; again no shocker since regular readers know I'm a firm aromatherapy believer.
