Uh Bariffle Ah Empties

This one's for you Melissa 😍

Recently in InYOUvations Melissa told me she was waiting on my candle reviews. Here yuh go babe:

'Cotton & Eucalyptus'

Crisp is an excellent description for this. I would repurchase.

Bath and Body Works 'Cotton & Eucalyptus' 3 Wick Candle -

'Fresh Mint & Coconut'

These are two things I wouldn't have thought to put together but they blend oh so well. "Creamy Coconut, Bright Mint Leaves, Deep Sea Water".

'Sugarcane Pineapple'

Sweet but not too sweet.

'Barcelona' and 'Lavender Vanilla'

'Lavender Vanilla' is a standard repurchase; I always have two of these in the stash. 'Mandarins & Mosaics' was an interesting mix; I noticed the citrus more than the vanilla. Gotta thank Heidi for introducing me to that one.

'Honeysuckle Bouquet'

I mind lusting after the colourful jars (so I can repurpose them) and forget I don't like most floral scents. This one gave me a headache so I had to give it away. "The scent of early spring contained in a bouquet of sweet honeysuckle and pink peony with a touch of creamy vanilla".

Bath and Body Works 'Honeysuckle Bouquet' 3 Wick Candle -

'Twisted Peppermint'

Another standard repurchase. Must. Have. Two. Backups. 😍

Bath and Body Works 'Twisted Peppermint' 3 Wick Candle -

'Blueberry Twist'
Eden's Choice 'Kiwi Cucumber'
'Vanilla Bean Noel'

'Blueberry Twist' is the most outstanding Bath and Body Works candle here. I even saved that remaining wax to put in a wax warmer. The 'Kiwi Cucumber' scent surprised me in its soap form and totally won me over as a candle. I even gave Gerri an empty candle jar so I could get a bigger version 😆

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.

With Key Ingredients:

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

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
