So today I’m going to share with you all my tips and tricks for getting your softest, smoothest Summer-ready skin! And bonus, they’re pretty much all on the more natural side and definitely affordable! 😉

Farmacy Clear Bloom Cleansing Oil – Blooming Good?



Farmacy is a brand that’s relatively new to Sephora. Being the curious-about-all-things-beauty-person that I am, I was intrigued. Farmacy is a small New York-based company that uses local farm fresh ingredients and cosmetic experts to create non-irritating products. All of the products are based around their patent-pending EchinaceaGreenEnvy, a potent form of Echinacea Purpurea that is rich in antioxidants. The first thing that caught my eye, and I felt would be least problematic for my acne-prone skin, is the Clear Bloom Glideaway Cleansing Oil. Naturally I decided I needed to try it! I am so glad I did because, though there is a slight learning curve, it is my new favorite way to remove makeup! Let’s get into the pros and cons so you can determine if it’s right for you! 🙂

Top 5 Beauty Oils for Hair, Skin & Nails – Tamanu, Seabuckthorn, Argan, Coconut & Olive

I’m sure you’re all aware that oils are hugely popular in beauty these days. You can use them practically anywhere to not only moisturize, but to add a multitude of benefits to the skin, hair and nails. I’ve grown to love oils, though as an occasionally oily and definitely acne-prone girl, I initially found the idea of applying it to my face a bit terrifying! Fear not my fellow acne sufferers. Not only can oils moisturize, but I have found a few that are actually good for treating, improving and even preventing acne!!! Having experimented a fair amount with oils and finding a few that I am completely obsessed with for hair, body and face, I thought I would share 5 of my favorite beauty oilsfor topical use with you today.

Don’t Look At Me! – Lush’s New Scrubby Fresh Face Mask

I don’t often buy things at Lush. I shower instead of taking baths so half of the products are of no use and a lot of the others just seem overpriced to me. That said I absolutely lovetheir Fresh Face Masks. I was overjoyed to see a few new additions to the line the last time I stopped in and obviously I had to get one. 🙂 After 20 minutes or so of deciding…yes, I am thatindecisive…I finally settled on Lush’s Don’t Look At Me Fresh Face Mask. I am so glad I did! 🙂

Pacifica Instant Karma Facial Cleansing Oil – More Than Just a Pretty Face?

Let me start by saying that I really love Pacifica. They are an entirely vegan company and have some fantastic products. However, today’s review is not for one of my favorites. Recently Pacifica added a pretty extensive skin care range at Ulta. The mask selection is seriously impressive and there is a sampler pack that I’m currently working my way through and enjoying. The masks seem really good so far! Unfortunately, the Instant Karma Facial Cleansing Oil is a different story.
