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.

'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".

'Twisted Peppermint'

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

'Autumn'
'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.

#FlashbackFriday | Beauty in Panama

Panama is most definitely beautiful. It was never a place I intended to visit so let me begin by thanking Innovate Barbados and COPA Airlines for the opportunity. COPA Airlines sponsored Innovate Barbados 2018 and provided three tickets for attendees to any COPA Airlines destination in the Caribbean or Central America. Panama was being promoted as a shopping destination - cause yuh know how Bajans love tuh shop!

If you're new to this blog, when a post starts with 'Beauty at/in...' it's not about the places' landscapes. It's a beauty blog after all; we're all about what cosmetics are available.


Having done no research about Panama, I was shocked to see the variety of brands available there. Panama is home to the largest mall in the Americas: Albrook Mall.


Very popular brands are available in Panama; whether it's via stand alone stores or counters in Cave Shepherd  / JC Penny-esque department stores. They're a lot of pictures ahead to be prepared to s…
