Maelove The Glow Maker Review

Maelove The Glow Maker is an antioxidant serum that’s received a ton of buzz since it first hit the market in early 2018. After reading a feature about The Glow Maker on Refinery29, I decided to try it for myself. Today I’m sharing my experience with this serum and whether or not I think it’s worth the hype.

The Coolest New Products I Found On Sephora.com This Week

new at sephora

Let’s be honest, we all do it. We *should* be answering the emails that are piling up, or cleaning up the mess we made of our closets trying to find something to wear, but instead we’re scrolling through Sephora’s website trying to figure out how we’re going to justify our next #TreatYoSelf order. There’s something about scrolling through all of those new products on Sephora that’s just so satisfying. In an attempt to try to pretend I’ve actually been doing something productive, I’ve decided to start sharing the coolest new products I’ve found here on the blog. I don’t know if I should be saying “you’re welcome” or “I’m sorry” for this post, but either way, let’s get to it.

My Skincare Routine: What I Use And Why + Differin Update

If you follow me on Instagram (shameless plug) then you see my skincare routine on a pretty regular basis, but I know just seeing a routine sometimes isn’t enough to understand the full picture. That’s why I want to walk you through my skincare routine and explain every single product I use, why I use it, and how it fits into my routine. The only products I’m not going to talk about in this post are masks because for me they’re something I only use 1-2 times per week (if that), and because this post is already going to be absurdly long as it is. If you want me to do another post on my face masks, drop me a comment down below or on IG letting me know, and I’ll get to it ASAP.

This post has been a long time coming, but I’ve always held off on doing it because my routine changes so much based on what I’m currently testing. At this point, I feel like my routine is stable enough that I can finally share the logic behind it all. Plus, I’ve had a lot of questions lately about what order to use products in, so this is obviously something y’all are curious about. I’m happy to help! I’m also including a Differin (adapalene) gel update because it’s been over a year since I first started using it and I definitely have some new information to share!

Without further ado, here’s my skincare routine.

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.
