Since I love most Kiehl’s products I try, I thought I would give one of their cult products a whirl and decided to try the infamous Calendula toner. I love a good toner, but they can be too astringent and harmful for the skin. That is why, this seemed promising as it boasts to be alcohol free and that is usually an important irritant in skincare products. I have now pretty much used up this entire bottle, so I have a good sense of what this product does.

Now that it’s summer I like switching up my base to something more lightweight and airy. So when Essence released a new tinted day cream last winter as part of their spring/ summer 2019 collection, I knew I would bust it out come summer time. I love bb creams, but tinted moisturizers are quite new to me. So I was stoked to try this out. Here are my final thoughts.

In Korean beauty routines, a skin essence is a key step that ensure that all the other skincare products work well with the skin. I discovered how much I like using a product like this as an extra layer of hydration when I tried the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Essence. But that is a pricey product so I went in search of more affordable alternative and I think I found one!

One of my favorite brands for skincare is Kiehl’s. I discovered it after trying some testers which is something the brand is good at doing. They usually have a huge case of samples so you can try something before you commit to buying the product. The same goes for the product I am reviewing today. After trying a travel size of their Ultra Facial moisturizer and deciding is wasn’t doing enough for my skin, I was recommended to try this. I got a tester, loved it and then decided to buy the full size. How did I fare with the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm after over 3 months of use?

My highlighter of choice for most of the month of May was the Pixi Glowy Gossamer Duo highlighter. I already bought this over the winter, but at the time I felt only one of these shades really worked on me. So I held off writing this review until I would have enough color in my skin to test out the darker, peachier shade too. I did that in May which means I now have tried this product enough to make up my mind about it. Here are my thoughts on the Pixi highlighter in Subtle Sunrise.

The foundation I used in the month of May was this Dream Cushion foundation by Maybelline that I have had for nearly 2 years and wore but never reviewed. I decided to make a point of trying to use it up this month as it was on the older side and I am not sure how hygienic this products gets over time as the packaging doesn’t keep the products airtight per se. That is why today I am finally reviewing the Maybelline Dream Cushion foundation for you.

I wore it all month and these are my thoughts after a full months of use. Let’s see how this went for me.
