I like to try products out slowly to see how they affect my skin. So I thought I’d give my reviews on the products that I’ve been using lately! Some of it is makeup // some is skincare! Let’s dive right in!
WRINKLE WARRIOR : Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior is a plumping moisturizer + a serum. I know that I’m young, and my skin probably isn’t to the point yet that I necessarily need to start worrying about preventing or reversing wrinkles. However, I decided I simply wanted to try this to see if I could use this as a “ preventative” measure – if that makes sense. I wish I would’ve taken a before photo to see the progress my skin has made. ONE THING I’VE NOTICED FROM THIS PRODUCT : my skin definitely does feel + look more plump! I purchased this product when it was half off during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale – so I would recommend waiting for a sale on this one! It’s not cheap, but if you can find it on sale – that’s a good time to buy! EXFOLIKATE – “Hollywood’s 2 minute facial” : another Kate Somerville product I’m OBSESSED with. Honestly. It truly is so good. I use it once ( maybe twice) a week to exfoliate and get my skin prepped for the week.
EXFOLIKATE CLEANSER : this is a daily cleanser. As most of you might know, I have used Tula products for years now. But I simply wanted to branch out and try another cleanser because WHY NOT!? What do you know, I have found another Kate Somerville product I’m in love with. In comparison to my tried and true Tula cleanser (which is my holy grail), the Tula is extremely gentle. If you have sensitive skin, you cannot go wrong with Tula. Kate Somerville Cleanser : definitely feels like it’s cleaning your skin and getting everything off – which I LOVE! I like to feel my products working. Both are great cleansers – I have no bad review for either!
MARIO BADESCU FACIAL SPRAY : the most calming facial spray. I spray this on my face . When I’m done cleansing my face, when I get done working out, and usually when I wake up in the morning just to wake me up! It has absolutely no stinging or anything like that ; very very calming. I first bought this stuff a couple of years ago because the smaller bottle is $7, and I’ve heard really great things about these products. No brainer! But this bottle is a repurchase for me and I went with the bigger bottle – which is only $12! SUCH a good deal! a lot
FRESH CREAM :: WARM CASHMERE – THIS. STUFF. IS. BOMB. It’s a shampoo (which I don’t use it for), bath + shower gel. I recently bought this for the first time since I ran out of my other body wash, and I’M HOOKED! It smells like Heaven. Just go to the store and smell it. I can’t get enough! I’ve been using it as bubble baths for Bray + Blake, too! It’s a favorite over here for sure!
MAKEUP REVOLUTION FULL COVERAGE FOUNDATION : I use the shade F3. I probably could use a darker shade in the summer, but I’m obsessed with this stuff. I heard about this from my friend, Jaclyn, and I’m so glad she told me about it! It’s only $12 + you get a lot of product! MAKEUP REVOLUTION FULL COVERAGE CONCEALER : I use the shade C1. I can’t say enough good about these products, and for the price, you can’t go wrong. This concealer is $7, and it’s a great dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape.
KOPARI COCONUT LIP GLOSS : This is a clear gloss + to put it simply, it’s like putting coconut oil on your lips, but better! I’m addicted to it, and I really feel like it’s been helping my lips. YVES SAINT LAURENT BLUR PRIMER : I was sent this primer to try out, and I’ve been loving it! It does have a silicon feel to it, which I’ve never been a huge fan of. But I do like this one. A little bit goes a long way. It has small gold flecks in it, and I truly feel like it just brightens the complexion and blurs out pores. I’ve included a photo of myself below with only this primer + the kopari lip gloss on.

MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER : in my humble opinion, this is not a “MUST HAVE”. But! I’ve been searching for something to use to simply take my makeup off before I use a cleanser (so the cleanser can work more efficiently). I heard good things about this, and I do like it! I have nothing bad to say about it. I simply use it to remove all of my makeup (with a cotton pad), and then I use my cleanser to start my skincare routine. This a great inexpensive option, although I am still on the hunt for something that I won’t be able to live without 😉
This post is simply a review on these products that I have used so far. It is not sponsored. I sincerely thought this might be of help and reference to you! Thanks for reading!
