Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment Review

Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment Review

Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment is one of the few beauty products out there that is absolutely worth the hype. Seemingly every Youtuber and beauty blogger out there has raved about this over the past couple of years, and after picking it up with skepticism and using it on and off for the past six months or so, I can tell you – it’s worth it.

Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment is formulated with avocado oil to nourish and hydrate the eye area. Kiehls says the cream is made with “highly effective natural ingredients”, which you should take with a grain of salt because Kiehls is not an all-natural or organic brand, so the cream certainly contains ingredients that are not all-natural. However, the cream itself is an incredibly rich and yes, creamy treatment – it’s a light green that’s quite close to the actual color of avocados, which you would think would be a turnoff, but when you apply it, and see how eagerly your skin gulps it up and how lightly the thick cream absorbs into your skin, you’ll cease to care at all about color.

Honestly, the texture of this is closest to butter, which I love – thick, but immensely soft, and melts (you can tell it has oil in it) into the skin as soon as you dab it on your eye area.

Baviphat Urban Dollkiss Mango Magic Brightening Mask Review

Baviphat Urban Dollkiss Mango Magic Brightening Mask Review

Baviphat Urban Dollkiss Mango Magic Brightening Mask Review! This has a ridiculously long name and a really unusual formula, and has been doing such wonders for my skin for the past two weeks that I’m going ahead and calling it a Holy Grail.

Description

Baviphat is a Korean brand I’ve never heard of before, but this came in my monthly Beauteque beaut box, and I had a good feeling as son as I saw the cutesy packaging in my favorite color. Description: oxygenating bubbles offer a deep cleaning of skin while aloe vera extracts soothe and moisturize. Use: Apply to cleansed face and wait 2 minutes. Rinse.

Pacifica Rice Bright Cleansing Paste Review

Pacifica Rice Bright Cleansing Paste Review

Pacifica Rice Bright Cleansing Paste Review! Spoiler alert: I am amazed by how much I love this.

A month or so ago, I tried and wasn’t impressed with Pacifica’s Skin Revival Microdermabrasion Scrub – it just didn’t do anything at all for my skin the way other, better scrubs, like Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub with sea kelp, have. And, because I’m easily burned, I resolved to not spend more money on Pacifica products. However, when I spotted the Pacifica Rice Bright Cleansing Paste in the aisle at Ulta, the packaging was SO gorgeous, and the description so intriguing, I had to pick it up. It has two unusual ingredients – rice and lemongrass – the former of which I associate with Asian skincare, and the latter of which I’m not sure I’ve ever seen in a skincare product.

Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask Review

Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask review

Paula’s Choice is a website founded by internationally-recognized skincare expert Paula Begoun, and has both an extensive encyclopedia of ratings of skincare products on the market today, as well as their own line of skincare. I find the website useful, and I often check it before buying something, but I don’t find it the end-all-be-all – while they have a general accuracy in that they highly rate some of the brands that consumers tend to find very high-quality and effective, and which I’ve found amazing, I’ve also tried highly-rated products on PC that did absolutely nothing for me (looking at you, Olay Regenerist Eye Serum). So that’s that. The Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask was the first of their products I’ve tried.

Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub Review – organic skincare with sea kelp, lemon peel, and French green clay

P
Look. Look at how pretty this is! Might as well sell my soul to all-natural, organic skincare brand Acure because their products speak to my deepest weakness – simple, bright packaging with clean lines. Swoon. I initially planned to review both the Cell Stimulating Facial Mask and the Brightening Facial Scrub in this post, but I got carried away and wrote a lot of words about just the scrub, so I’m going to talk just about that, and will review the Cell Stimulating Facial Mask soon.[/caption]

I’d been wanting the Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub for months after seeing it  featured in Allure’s Best of 2015 list as the best facial scrub and finally, after being unable to find it stocked at Target ever for love or money, ordered it on Amazon. I trust Allure recommendations more than any other source in the world, simply because I’ve found so many of them to be so effective, and there’s a great blend of science and skincare knowledge in their recommendations, without an obsessive commitment to any one brand of skincare thought.

Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask ReviewMizon is a highly popular affordable skincare brand in Korea, and the company’s products have recently been picked up by a number of Western retailers including Urban Outfitters, Peach and Lily, and UK-based Cult Beauty. I have and quite like their Multi Function Snail Repair Eye Cream as well (review on that probably to follow). Recently, I picked up the Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask.

Description/Claims: Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask is a moisturizing sleeping mask that works overnight to brighten the look of skin, leaving it looking more radiant, translucent and hydrated. Contains niacinamide for glowing skin, hyaluronic acid and glycerin for deep moisture, and botanical extracts to protect the skin from environmental stressors and irritation.

Holy Grail Skincare: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream – Best Moisturizer for All Skin Types

Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream

When someone, anywhere online, says “Holy Grail,” my mind immediately flits to the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. Kiehl’s is a classic skincare brand, having been around since 1851, and the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream has been a staple of their line and a fan favorite since the 70s.  It’s rare for brands to stick with one product – typically, they’re constantly launching new ones or reworking their existing ones so as to bring in a new crop of buyers and keep the brand fresh – which should give you a hint of just how good this cream is. 50 years from now, people will probably still be buying, and loving, the Ultra Facial Cream.

Rose Skincare Routine: Su:m37 Miracle Rose, Korres Wild Rose, and more

Rose Skincare Routine

I’m obsessed with rose skincare, since I love the scent and texture of many rose-based products. I’ve been on the hunt for a complete rose-based skincare routine, and while I haven’t switched to the below routine entirely, I’m in love with the idea of every single product containing rose essence or rosehip oil. Check out the below routine I put together!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray Toner with Rosewater Review

Mario Badescu Facial Spray

The main selling point of this little facial spray/toner is its price point – at only $7, anyone can afford it. Mario Badescu is a highly-regarded high-end beauty brand and very popular among beauty bloggers (the line’s most famous product is probably the Drying Lotion for acne, which I have yet to try as I don’t struggle too much with acne). Let’s explore first what exactly toners do.
