My Favorite Podcasts

One of my goals this year is to expand the content I bring you guys. I also want to share more of what excites and interests me. Podcasts are one of those things. I love listening to podcasts, especially when I’m doing something like shooting photos for the blog. They’re also great for when I’m tired of listening to music, or I just don’t know what I want to listen to. Plus, it’s free entertainment. Woohoo! You’ll probably notice a common theme in this list: I like spooky shit. It’s not all that I listen to, but it is a pretty decent chunk of it. I’m always looking for new podcasts to listen to, so leave me your suggestions!

P.S. The links I’ve provided to these podcasts are for their iTunes page because I feel like that’s the most popular way to listen to podcasts, but you can find these podcasts on just about any podcast platform. Just type the name in to your preferred platform and it should come up.

Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb Review

Eye cream. Some people love it, others feel like it’s a waste of money. Me? I’m in the first camp. I have very sensitive eyes and find that many moisturizers that do great on my face often sting my eyes. For that reason, I prefer to use a dedicated eye cream. So what do I think of Belif’s Moisturizing Eye Bomb? Read on to find out.

Differin Gel Review: How Differin Improved My Skin

Sometimes a product comes along that totally changes your skin. For me, Differin Gel was that product. When I was a teenager, I was pretty lucky to only get the occasional zit. It wasn’t until around 19 or so when I started to suffer from major breakouts, including occasional bouts of cystic acne. I was able to get most of that under control with aggressive AHA and BHA usage, which thankfully my skin can tolerate, and switching to a low pH cleanser. (If you’d like to learn more about why a low pH cleanser is important, especially for acne-prone skin, then check out this super informative post from SnowWhiteandtheAsianPear) However, even with that routine, I was still having a lot of problems with texture, especially little clogs/bumps all over my cheeks. As a makeup addict, this drove me crazy because unlike a zit, which can kind of be hidden, my texture was just always there, and makeup only seemed to make it look worse.

I was ready to start trying something new, and right around that time it was announced that Differin would soon be available for over the counter purchase. Around this same time, Poshly offered to send me a set of all three Differin products to test out and review, so I lucked out and got to try these for free.  As usual, I’ll be sharing my honest thoughts and experiences with you. At this point, I’ve finished a full-size tube of Differin, so I’m ready to share my results with you all!

Disclosure: I received these products for free in exchange for an honest review on Differin’s website. This post is not sponsored. This post does not contain affiliate links.
