Good Molecules Ain't Miss Yet

More Black Friday sales. More overdue skincare product reviews 😖 Earlier this year I mentioned, over on Instagram , that the Good Molecules Rosewater Daily Cleansing Gel is #TeamModenApproved. Much like The Ordinary and The Inkey List, Good Molecules is an inexpensive brand that focuses on simple formulations. The cleansing gel is effective, cheap (12 USD for 4 oz.) and lasts a while. Literally a little goes a long way . It comes in a glass bottle with an efficient pump dispenser. Using this product til the end made me realise something: I haven't tried a thing from Good Molecules that I don't like. Most repurchased: Clarify & Cleanse Bar .  " Why It’s Special: Salicylic acid and tea tree oil help to clarify and prevent blemishes with antiseptic and astringent powers Kaolin clay balances excess sebum while antioxidant-rich cocoa powder soothes inflammation and redness Rosehip and grapeseed oils nourish and maintain a healthy moisture balance while promoting elastici

Youth To The People Recommendations

Thanks to Keisha for asking what I recommend getting from the Youth To The People 25% off sitewide sale. The sale includes kits 😳 and runs until November 29. There's also a free toiletry bag gift-with-purchase on all orders, while supplies last. Firstly, any kit you have your eye on is a must have. With the additional discount it's an even better value; and Rakuten is currently offering 5% cash back   ⤸ . As I've mentioned before, kits / value sets are a great way to try a product without committing your precious coins to the full size. A sample size is exactly what got Keisha hooked on the Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream. I've gone through two of those myself and I recommend it for dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin. It's great as a last step to seal in the hydration of essences and serums . A must have if you sleep in AC. I'm also a fan of the mist.  I was just talking about my preference for a fine mist dispenser 😆 this one fits the bill. Youth To People ha

We love nail polish!

How y'all doing Fam? I was reminded recently that life is actually spelled h u r d l e s . And everything is temporary. So let's take these challenges in stride and hold on to whatever brings us joy. Now that's out of the way lets talk about something both Heidi and I love: nail polish. This is just a quick plug to our Instagram pages, if you don't follow them already. The Nail Bay Heidi's killing these press-on nail designs and everyone is loving the ability to customize their looks with little effort. They're also reusable which is a big plus in these crazy hard economic times. Reach out to her and get you a Hot Girl Summer set! #LuckyLovesLacquer Last year I finally decided to make an account for my nail polish swatches. While I haven't done a wear test in a while , I still actually have to use all these polishes - at least once - to decide if to keep them right? Right. So here's my attempt to chronicle that journey. Shout out to the Fam, Made For Me
