Nirvana Spa: Rich Body Butter

August 14, 2017

This body butter arrived in my mailbox one day and I still have no idea where it came from or who sent it. If you sent it, please shoot me an email! It is the Real Fruit Goodness Exotically Creamy Coconut Rich Body Butter from Nirvana Spa. According to the label, it is made in the UK. I’ve been using it on my roughest skin, my feet and elbows, for about a month now and am ready to share my results.

NeoStrata: Skin Active Exfoliating Wash

June 7, 2017

When I was a teenager, I couldn’t wait to grow up because I assumed that my acne would magically disappear and I’d have clean, clear skin like the adults in my life. Well, that didn’t happen.

When I heard that a good friend of mine used NeoStrata, I had to try it. I chose the exfoliating wash based on its reviews.

Dollar Shave Club: Razor Subscription

May 26, 2017

I discovered Dollar Shave Club about a year ago, but kept putting off signing up because I didn’t know that it was really worth it.

May 24, 2017

I turn 27 this year and I’m finally starting to think about wrinkles, and with a one-year-old and another on the way, I definitely suffer from dark circles under my eyes.

When I found this Skin Nutritions New York Age Defy Dark Circle & Puffiness Serum, I thought it’d be worth a shot. For the record, I got mine at a local mom and pop shop and it was only $2, not $6.99 as I saw advertised on Amazon.
