june favourites

Image
I kind of can't believe it's already July and summertime! I've been off from university for a few months now and I've been doing a lot of relaxing and also preparing to move into my first apartment in August which I'm super excited about! I've been picking up a lot of cute home decor pieces so I'm planning a post for that but in the meantime..here are my June favourites!

Beauty


I've been really into blush and highlighter lately, more specifically the Milk Makeup Blush Oil in Crave and the Liquid Strobe in Aura . They blend super easily and the colours are so pretty!

My favourite summer fragrance is Beach Walksince it reminds me so much of being at the beach. It smells like sunscreen and sunshine (if sunshine had a scent lol).

My skincare favourites from June are both Caudalie products! The Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbetis so hydrating and smells amazing and the Grape Wateris perfect for super hot days since the mist is so fine and soothing.

stylekorean: glowing clover review

Image
I recently got the chance to try and review some products from the website Stylekoreanwho have a huge selection of korean skincare and makeup from various brands! I have been slowly getting into kbeauty recently so this was a great chance to try out some different things!

Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water
I really like using this cleansing water since it is super soothing and hydrating! I use it after cleansing with Glossier's Milky Jelly to make sure all my makeup is off. It also smells amazing (as does pretty much everything in this post haha)

Hyggee All-In-One H2 Soap
I wasn't a huge fan of this soap mostly because I don't think bar products are the greatest thing to use on your face (it just doesn't seem that sanitary) although my skin did feel super clean and soft after using it.

Heimish All Clean Green Foam Cleanser
This cleanser is one of my new favourites! It's great for the morning since it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. I also love the texture since it starts a…

spring wish list

It's almost the end of the semester for me which means I'll be able to go home soon and enjoy the spring weather (which is non-existent since there is currently an ice storm as I'm writing this). I thought I'd put together my current wish list which is full of some very spring inspired items!

march favourites

Image
March is already over which is kind of crazy since I'll be finishing my first year of university in the next couple weeks and moving out of my dorm room! I put together a list of a couple of the things I enjoyed from last month which mostly consists of skincare and music.

Beauty


The lovely people from Wishtrend sent me the new Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner and I have been obsessed with! It's super hydrating which is great since my skin has still been pretty dry lately from the weather. The texture is really cool since it seems really thick in the bottle but it comes out watery and absorbs into the skin so nicely (no sticky feeling!) I also really like how it's unscented since it can be overwhelming when a lot of the products you're using in your routine all have a different scent.

I'm still obsessed with Glossier Solutioncause it has worked so well for my skin! I obviously still g…

spring essentials

Image
Spring is one of my favourite seasons cause it starts to get me excited for summer! I just love spring colours, fashion and the weather so I thought I'd share some of my essentials!

Gold Jewelry



Mejuri sent over the cutest gold bracelet that I've been wearing non-stop lately and I love pairing it with hoop earrings.

Updated Fragrances


I always like to switch up my fragrance when the season changes so I've been wearing Glossier You a lot and also the Replica Glow filter! Both are smell super warm and comforting which is perfect for spring!

a look at chemical exfoliators

Image
Before Glossier announced they were releasing a chemical exfoliator I had never really thought about trying one, and although I had heard about them in passing, I didn't really know how they worked. Basically from what I've read, they help to remove dead skin cells in a way that physical exfoliators can't and are less harmful to the skin than using a scrub.
For the past 2 months I tried out two different chemical exfoliators so here are my thoughts on them!
Glossier Solution


For the first month I used Glossier's Solution every night for four weeks. I have oily skin and from what I've heard from others if your skin is on the sensitive or dry side you should steer clear of Solution because many people have had negative reactions to it. I personally loved the way my skin looked and felt after using it!
Pros: 
-reduced breakouts -smoothed and improved skin's texture -reduced the look/size of pores -reduced blackheads -skin looked glowy
Cons:
-strong smell (almost like cleaner…
