Review | Valentia Royal Rose Hydrating Serum


Hello hello!

I’m so excited! I was lucky enough to receive another product from Valentia for review through Brandbacker. I love testing out new skincare products, mostly because I don’t like my skin to get bored. I reviewed two of their products before which you can find here! Today I am going to share my thoughts on the Royal Rose Hydrating Serum. This product claims to deeply moisturize skin, provide antioxidant protection, smooth and nourish dry skin, smooth skin tone and texture, and boost skin radiance. Let’s jump right in to my experience with the Royal Rose serum!

MAKE Beauty | Review


Hello, hello!

Today I’m so excited to be reviewing the MAKE Beauty Silk Creme Lipstick in Taffy and Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Alabaster! I was lucky to be sent this sample through BrandBacker free for review. I love the vision of the MAKE Beauty company – they believe everyone should embrace their vision of beauty (whether that means all out colorful makeup or simple neutral makeup). MAKE is made in New York City, is paraben-free and never tested on animals. 10% of sales are donated to the We See Beauty Foundation, supporting women-led, worker-owned cooperative businesses across the Americas! How incredible is that? You can find out more information about the company and browse all their products here!

Anyway… I wanted to share my January favorites. Last month was full of super moisturizing and hydrating products in my home since it finally got cold around here and my skin was suffering. Let’s get right into it!

Lorac Alter Ego Lipsticks

Good morning beautiful friends!

This morning as I have some time to myself (while baby bear is napping) I find that my mind keeps wandering to makeup. Since its usually filled with mommy thoughts, its so refreshing to focus on something for me. I think its important to find a good balance.

I’ve recently purchased the Alter Ego lipsticks from Lorac because I don’t own many lipsticks and am trying to be more adventurous with my makeup. All the lipsticks I’ve owned before are terrible quality. I usually just chose the cheapest of cheap because deep down I knew I wouldn’t use them. This time, I thought to myself that if I got good quality lipsticks then maybe I would be more encouraged to use them!
