Mario Badescu SkinCare Review

Mario Badescu

I was in Anthropologie the day after I got paid (I know, bold move) and surprisingly enough I didn’t buy absolutely everything that I laid my eyes on.

Acne Hacks | Get Rid of Acne on a Budget


So, there isn’t going to be a “Things I’ve Tried In….” post this month (I know, Wow, I broke the streak already) simply because I didn’t really get a chance to do any shopping these past few weeks in light of exam season.

Favourite Face Masks

There is something so rewardingly therapeutic about slathering rich, creamy clay masks and sticky sheets drenched in serums on your tired skin after a strenuous day of long commutes to school, less-than-lively lectures and dealing with the crazy French lady at the UC food court checkout. We all have our own ways of rewarding ourselves […]

Lush Mini-Haul [+ New Valentines Day Collection]

This year I’ve resolved to treat myself to more baths so that I can sufficiently recharge and refresh my mind and body. It can be so easy for me to get lost in school work and work-work that my only downtime consists of me watching Netflix with Ben (*insert typical quote about how I am […]

Get Un-Ready With Me [My Nighttime Skincare Routine + Products]

As much as I’d love to be at a point in my life where I use $450 La Mer serums or moisturizers infused with microscopic gold flecks, the fact of the matter is that my skin (being oily and temperamental and all) has high demands that my limited student budget simply can’t keep up with. […]
