For whatever reason, people seem to like what I have to say about skincare products. “Do you have a blog?” “No.” “Well, why not?” …is a discourse I’m all too familiar with. The truth is, I don’t know everything there is to know about skincare. All I know is what works for me and my skin. And the best I can do is pass this information along to those who are interested in it!
The beauty industry—particularly in the realm of skincare—is riddled with deception and inaccuracy. Just because you have mild acne does not mean your entire skincare routine should consist of products marketed towards acneic skin. Just because a celebrity endorses the use of a product or line of products does not mean you should use it/them. Just because a product is labeled “dermatologically tested” does not mean it’s better for your skin than those that don’t have this label. Natural/organic does not automatically mean safer/better. All T, all shade; there are YouTubers and people in the blogosphere who are just out to make a fast buck, and will try to trick you into buying trendy products and devices you don’t need… and sometimes they do it so swiftly that you don’t even realize you’re reading/listening to an advertisement. Take things with a grain of salt, and always go with your better judgment—even when you read my own recommendations and reviews on products! Just because you’re reading someone else’s opinion doesn’t mean you have to compromise your common sense. Please see my personal and professional disclaimers here.
This is dedicated to everyone who has nudged me in the direction of making a blog for the past three years — you all win; I finally caved. Since I’ve never done anything like this before and have no idea what the future holds, I ask that you please be patient with me in the beginning! I already know there isn’t going to be any rhyme or reason to what I post… it’s very much going to be a bit of this, a bit of that. If you have any requests, please feel free to share them here, on my Instagram page, or via e-mail!
