Wish List Update

Retrospection is good for the soul 😁 Every once in a while I like to think back on the things I was lusting after and see if they were worth all the hype. Today we're checking out this post from April 2017.

Son & Park Beauty Water

Love. Love. Love. Won't be without it.

Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser

Another love. Probably the only cream cleanser I would repurchase.

Bought this one too.

Peter Thomas Roth Moor Please! Irish Moor Mud 3-Piece Kit

I didn't buy that kit cause a better one came out. Honestly, I just wanted to try the Irish Moor Mud Purifying Cleansing Gel. More on that in another post. Check out Marsha's review of the gold mask here.

Herbivore Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask

Another case where a value set saved me a few dollars. Read more about my Herbivore Botanicals routine here. The sizes that come in their kits are so adequate; I don't think I'd ever by the full size.

Sephora Collection Lip Balm 'Almond'

Copped that. Still haven't used it.

NARS Banc De Sable Highlighting Palette

I missed it 😢 Actually I saw one of these in a Sephora store but I was a good girl and left it on the shelf.

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip

Skipped this one. I have too many lip products.

Givenchy Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner '05 Jade' and Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner 'Mist Me? 55 - lilac'

I have too many eyeliners too but I still bough both of these 😦 I'm not purchasing any more of the Marc Jacobs ones cause the product completely falls out of the packaging. Those Givenchy ones are lovely 😍

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.

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

Herbivore Botanicals PM Skincare Routine

Last year I outlined a fairly comprehensive night time routine with a couple of options. As I said then, I mainly listen to my skin and use whatever type of product it seems to be needing. Sometimes laziness or a migraine may keep me from doing any sort of a routine at all 😞 Thankfully, those days are in the minority.

If you're thinking of compiling a skincare routine, I'd like to offer this basic principle: day time - protect; night time - repair. That coupled with staying away from harmful ingredients and you're well on your way. Many brands will try to sell you on using numerous products in their range, claiming they "work best" together. That may be true but I am a skeptic. Once you know how active ingredients work you can use anything from any line. All that said, for the first time in a long time I've been using some products from Herbivore Botancials back-to-back and the routine ain't too shabby.
