  1. I'm in such a desperate need of new skin care routine, especially now that the weather is changing up again...have been eyeing CG tinted moisturizer for a while now, I may just have to give it a try.

    Happy to see a new blog post!

  2. I love how you use both high end and drugstore products. It seems to be doing you well, you have gorgeous skin! I just started using the Clinique three step system and I love it. I wrote about it on my blog. Check it out!

  5. There are much better products with ingredients such as natural oils not mineral or petrolatum,aloe, green tea,pomegranate,acai,goji berry,alpha lipoic acid,vitamin c,etc,avaliable online at vitamin stores I shop at Iherb for all natural skincare.Most importantly none of these products are tested on animals unlike all the products that you bought and listed.

    1. You can find it at Ulta. Some Walmarts carry it, but rarely. Definitely check though!

  8. Your skin always looks flawless, Emily! And it's great that you have such a variety of products for every budget.

    I recently did a mini review with a follow up review in 3 days of a pair of Dueba blue circle lens on my blog. Looking at review posts of your's on how to set it out!

  9. Proctor and Gamble does horrible animal testing! They own Olay,Cover girl,etc.P&G admit that guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, ferrets, rats and mice are among the animals used in their ‘product safety research’, as well as cats and dogs in pet food experiments. Uncaged’s investigations continue to reveal disturbing examples of P&G’s ongoing involvement in painful and lethal animal tests.They do horrific tests on cats and dogs for IAMS.Excerpt from PETA report:
    “Our investigator video-taped IAMS dogs being dumped on cold concrete floor after having huge chunks of muscle cut out of their thighs; dogs gone stir crazy from confinement; and cats kept in a cinderblock room with crude wooden “resting” boards that had nails sticking out of them. One of the boards fell on a cat, crushing her to death, while our investigator was there. The lab director did not remove the boards when the cat was crushed but he did remove them when he was told the lab was going to be inspected because he knew they were illegal.” Please stop promoting Proctor and Gamble and consider banning them altogether.http://www.uncaged.co.uk/pg.htm http://www.irishantivivisection.org/iams.html

  12. I just tried the Garnier gel moisturizer because it reminded me of the Clinique Moisture Surge gel I used to use and love. I have to say, I prefer this, the Clinique product worked really well but had too much perfume and tended to sting. This is fantastic because after going back to grad school I can't afford Clinique which is at least 5x the price. Excellent dupe, thanks for the recommendation!

  14. I love your blog, and your videos! They are so great! I find all kinds of make up reviews and tips for me! Also my youngest daughter suffers from eczema and you have mentioned several over the counter products that you have used that have seemed to help or not irritate the skin-Thank you! It is nice to have a real person who suffers with eczema's review on such product.

  18. Did you know the Olay Regenerist Serum is the highest ranked otc out there? I was so happy when I found out it was pretty affordable. FYI the Olay Total Effects eye cream is number one otc for eyes. I have no idea why I'm telling you this. I just found it out last week and felt like sharing for some reason, lol. You don't find too many people using Olay anymore. I've always loved it.
