New Beauty Tries from Beautybio

April 22, 2022

Beautybio Skincare Review

I’ve been a huge fan of the Beautybio Bright Eyes and Cryo Roller for depuffing and brightening the eyes so I was really excited to partner with them to try some new items from their line. Beautybio is the most well known for their GloPro tools but there are quite a few other products they carry I think are worth checking out. They’ve also given me a promo code to share with you, details below.

Beautybio Skincare Review

Zenbubble Gel Cream

The Zenbubble Gel Cream is a new favorite for a nice lightweight oil-free calming gel-cream in one. I love that it absorbs quickly and easily into the skin. It’s oil-free and fragrance-free, perfect for sensitive skin and works well to reduce redness while rebalancing the skin. It contains phyto marine actives, microalgae and chamomile. These help calm the skin, add hydration and reduce redness and improve skin texture over time. I love that it has a pump style dispenser to keep the product clean and sanitary inside the tub.

Eyelighter Concentrate

I love trying anything to help brighten the eye area and The Eyelighter Concentrate is a great multi-tasking product that brightens and depuffs. It has retinol, Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and squalene to smooth the eye, brighten, depuff and hydrate. It has a contoured cooling applicator which feels so good when applying the product. You can also use this as a makeup primer for the eye area.

Heathly Scalp Dry Shampoo

The Healthy Scalp Dry Shampoo is a something I think everyone should try. Dry Shampoos can be hit or miss for me but this one is pure love. Love how it absorbs oil and leaves the hair feeling soft and shiny (no crunchy feel with this one). It smells clean and fresh! It’s also starch-free and alcohol-free. It’s also safe for color-treated hair.

Glass and Gloss Megawatt Glow Pro-Facial

The last thing I want to highlight is their Glass and Gloss Megawatt Glow Pro-Facial. It’s a 2-step facial product with an ultra fine scrub and a face gloss serum. The scrub is one of the most gentle face scrubs I’ve tried. The product contains what they call spherical skin-friendly nanoderma crystals which gently buff the skin to resurface texture in gentle way. You apply on damp skin and rinse. The second step is to follow with the gloss serum to add hydration and glow. A little goes a long way and even though it has a glossy finish, it’s more like a serum so it blends into the skin nicely while giving you a radiant dewy glow.

Radiant Dewy Skin with Sulwhasoo

February 4, 2022

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum and Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream

Sponsored by Sulwhasoo

I love a good skin refresh this time of year and I’ve recently added a few new things to my routine from Sulwhasoo. I’m always looking for skincare to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Two things I’ve tried and loved include their First Care Activating Serum and their best selling Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream.

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum and Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream review

First Care Activating Serum

Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum

The First Care Activating Serum is their prepping serum they recommend as the first step in skincare after cleansing. It has a blend of 5 herbs to improve hydration, brightness, radiance and helps reduce the look of wrinkles. Sulwhasoo’s serum has what they call their JAUM ActivatorTM which is a mix of Lotus, White Lily, Solomon’s Seal, Peony and Rehmannia. I love the pump packaging and it has a very lightweight fluid texture to help boost the effectiveness of following skincare steps.

I found two pumps enough to cover my entire face. They recommend using this both morning and night. Skin is left glowing and dewy!

Concentrated Ginseng Renewal Cream

Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream

The second product I tried is their Concentrated Ginseng Renewal Cream. This is one of the creamiest moisturizers I have tried! It has a super silky smooth texture that melts right into the skin. They’ve combined Korean red ginseng and retinol to help with visible signs of aging which have started to creep in. It makes my skin feel more supple and bouncy. Complexion is noticeably more plump! I like using this as my night time moisturizer.

You can find both products available online at Sulwhasoo. If you’re new to Sulwhasoo products and want to try things out first they have a Bestsellers Trial Kit which looks really good, it has both the serum + cream in it along with a couple other items I’ve been wanting to try (I will probably order this myself). Also available in minis too here and here.

Do you have any Sulwhasoo favorites? I’ve heard so many good things about their face masks and serums! Would love to know what you love from the line!

Chanel No 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Foundation Review BD41

I hauled a few items from the latest No 1 de Chanel Skincare collection and have a review with some thoughts to share today! The lineup has products with their Red Camellia extract and oils to refresh and hydrate the skin. You can find the collection now at and Ulta Beauty. What I hauled:

I skipped most of the new skincare and tested everything with other Chanel skincare items I own and love including the Hydra Beauty Water Cream, Hydra Beauty Micro Serum and La Solution 10 de Chanel. The new foundation formula worked beautifully with these.

No 1 de Chanel Haul + Review

Revitalizing Foundation

Chanel Revitalizing Foundation in BD41

The No 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Foundation is a fluid illuminating foundation with sheer-medium coverage. It’s very lightweight with a nice glowy finish. On its own it’s very glowy but I liked that it wasn’t greasy feeling. It has a plumping smoothing effect on the skin with the Red Camellia Oil. Finish has medium lasting power even when set with a powder. Since it’s dewy/luminous adding a powder on top will cancel out the shine and glow with most formulas. I found the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder added on top helped set and tone down the shine but still allowed the glow to show through.

I picked B40 and BD41 and my perfect shade match now is BD41. I also picked up B50 for summer.

Overall feels and looks nice on the skin. If you have oily skin it may be too hydrating for you. Right now it works for me but in the summer months I suspect I will gravitate more towards the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation or CC Cream.

Compared to the Les Beiges Moisturizing Tint the new No 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Foundation has more coverage, a more fluid texture and is more lightweight.

Just the Revitalizing Foundation in BD41 on the skin:

Swatches below compared to other formulas including the Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation in 6 Neutral, Les Beiges Healthy Glow Moisturizing Tint, Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation and NARS Light Reflecting Foundation.

Foundation Swatch Comparisons Chanel, NARS, Charlotte Tilbury

Lip and Cheek Balm

No 1 de Chanel Lip and Cheek Balm in Healthy Pink, Wake-Up Pink, Lively Rosewood

There are six shades of the Revitalizing Lip and Cheek Balms. I picked three to try knowing that there would be a chance I would not like these on the cheeks and I was right. These are luminous tinted balms. Applied with the fingers you will get a more lightweight tint but if you apply them with a lip brush you will get more pigment.

I have mixed feelings about these. They’re not bad, the quality and performance is quite good. But they are too dewy for my personal taste on the cheeks and I found they had no dry down which makes them have a sticky texture. They have a more sticky/tacky feel compared to the Baume Essentiel sticks but have the same amount of glow/shine in the finish.

On the lips they’re more comfortable and easier to wear but I would have preferred something in a twist up stick format instead.

No 1 de Chanel Lip and Cheek Balm in Lively Rosewood Makeup Look

No 1 de Chanel L’eau Rouge Fragrance Mist and Revitalizing Serum-In-Mist

Chanel L’eau Rouge Fragrance Mist + Revitalizing Serum-In-Mist

The last two items I hauled are my favorite! The No 1 de Chanel L’eau Rouge Fragrance Mist was a huge surprise for me. It has a soft refreshing soothing kind of scent to it. To me it’s hard to describe, it has a similar vibe to the Hydra Beauty skincare line and also smells like some of the Shiseido skincare line. Chanel describes it as:

“Opening with an energetic burst of citrus and red berries, the scent unfurls into a heart of jasmine and rose, the iconic signature of the House’s fragrance, along with comforting iris and musk notes.”

To me this is a must-have but I know scent is so personal it might not be for everyone. It’s currently sold out at Chanel but still available at Ulta and I am ordering a backup.

I also really adore the No 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Serum-In-Mist. It’s a bi-phase formula with Red Camellia Oil and camellia water for a dewy refreshed mist of moisture. The oil is noticeable on the skin but it’s still lightweight. If you don’t like the emollient feel I’d recommend their Hydra Beauty Essence Mist instead for a more lightweight feel.

No 1 de Chanel Haul + Review

No 1 de Chanel Haul + Review

Overall some nice pieces in the collection. I think the foundation is beautiful but it’s not my favorite simply because I prefer something with more coverage and something less dewy. The stand outs are the L’Eau Rouge and Revitalizing Serum-In-Mist. I like the concept of infusing makeup with skincare.

Self-Care Beauty Favorites to Relax and Unwind

January 12, 2022

Self Care Beauty Favorites from Nordstrom

Sharing a few of my self-care favorites in my weekly routine to help me relax and unwind! For me the best kind of relaxing self-care treat is to take a nice long bath with a good candle, bath soak or scrub and a luxury face mask. I also love a good body cream or oil to hydrate the skin. I’ve partnered with Nordstrom to share some of my go-to’s along with some new discoveries that launched recently for the new year!

Replica Lazy Sunday Morning Shower Gel and Bubble Bath Candle

I love fresh clean scents for the bath and if you’re a fan of clean powder linen scents then I recommend checking out the Replica Lazy Sunday Morning scent which now comes in a Shower Gel format. The Replica Bubble Bath Candle is another new favorite. It has a soft powdery floral kind of vibe that’s super relaxing for the bath.

Diptyque Chamomille Candle

You girls know I’m the biggest fan of Diptyque and their candles are my favorites. Some new scents for spring launched with a beautiful pattern design on the outside. Chamomille is one I picked up recently and thought it would be perfect for an evening relaxing scent. It has a green floral kind of vibe and I love it. Other new ones with the limited-edition design include Roses and Litchi – all of which I think are stunning!

Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Soak + Ouai Scrub

For the bath I love a good bath soak and scrub. The Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Soak is one of my favorites for a skin-softening soothing treat. It’s pricey but one I have repurchased many times and love.

Another tried and true is the Ouai Scalp and Body Scrub. It has sugar crystals and is scented in in a sweet kind of scent. You can use this on the scalp and body, but I mainly use it on the body for a luxurious body exfoliator.

Best Self Care Body Treatments Necessaire, La Mer, Sisley

For body treatments the best of the best I’ve tried is the Sisley Velvet Nourishing Body Cream with Saffron Flowers. It has the best texture and feel for my skin and doesn’t have a sticky feel so I can wear it to bed comfortably without sticking to the sheets!

Sisley Velvet Nourishing Body Cream

I’ve loved La Mer and have been rationing my Body Creme samples and minis that I have. It’s one of the most luxurious body creams I’ve tried and I noticed they recently launched it in a Body Creme Tube (6.7 oz) so I splurged and couldn’t be happier. It has an ultra rich smooth texture and I think it’s 100% worth the splurge. It’s also available in the Body Creme Jar 10 oz size and Reparative Lotion 5.4 oz format.

Self-Care Body Treatments Necessaire, Sisley, La Mer, Kopari

A few other more affordable body treatments I really like include the Necessaire Body Oil (super thick and emollient, unscented), Necessaire Body Lotion (also unscented and lightweight) and the Kopari Ultra Restore Body Butter (sweet coconut scented but thick and lush).

Hand Creams Replica, L'Occitane, Diptyque

I’ve tried a few newer hand creams recently. I love the purse-size Replica Lazy Sunday Morning Hand Cream which is heavily scented in the powdery clean scent.

For those with dry hands I think L’Occitane makes the best formula to make a huge difference in skin texture and hydration. I am never without one of the smaller tubes (love these in their Hand Cream Trio). I bought the newest Youth Hand Cream Serum-in-Cream with their Immortelle Flower blend. It’s a really beautiful formula with a silky smooth texture. Smells just like their Immortelle skincare line.

If you love Diptyque perfumes they have a number of hand creams in their best selling scents. I love the Do Son Hand Cream for a unique mix of tuberose, orange blossom and jasmine.

Best Rose Face Masks Fresh and Sisley

Last but not least I love a good hydrating face mask to calm the skin and finish off my self care routine at night. I love rose face masks for their soothing properties and my two go-to’s for glowing skin are the Fresh Rose Face Mask (nice for a weekly pick me up) and Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask (splurge).

That wraps up my self care favorites from Nordstrom! Would love to hear about your favorites right now. Do you have any self-care rituals to help you relax and unwind?

New Year Skincare Refresh Favorites from Kiehl’s

January 7, 2022

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Review

I’m excited to share some of my skincare favorites from Kiehl’s today! I have used and loved so many things from Kiehl’s over the years. They have a lot of great everyday staples for a wide range of skin types and needs. (Andrew also uses a lot from the men’s line!) I’ve partnered with them to highlight some of my favorites. If you’re looking for some things to refresh your winter skincare routine, I hope you find this roundup helpful!

Ultra Facial Cream

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Review

The Ultra Facial Cream has been a go-to staple for a great everyday lightweight moisturizer. It’s one of their best sellers suitable for all skin types. It has a lightweight feel, absorbs nicely into the skin, and has a mix of Squalane and Glycerin to restore and retain moisture to the skin. I love that it’s smooth and balancing. A little goes a long way.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Review

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Review


I have quite a few other things from Kiehl’s in my skincare routine. I tend to rotate skincare as the seasons change but I have several staples I use regularly. Their Ultra Facial Cleanser is a favorite of mine for it’s thick texture. It’s great to remove excess oil, dirt, makeup and even sunscreen. I love that it’s effective at cleansing but doesn’t strip the skin.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser


Kiehl’s has a lot of great toners too! One I’ve been loving lately is the Milk-Peel Gentle Exfoliating Toner. I like this one because it has salicylic acid and a mixture of other ingredients to gently resurface, soften and brighten skin.

Kiehl's Milk-Peel Gentle Exfoliating Toner

Night Time

For night time treatments I love the Micro-Dose Anti-Aging Retinol Serum. It’s one of the few retinol products my skin can handle. It works well to keep my skin smooth and helps reduce wrinkles over time. The Micro-Dose technology allows for positive anti-aging results without harsh side effects.

Kiehl's Micro-Dose Anti-Aging Retinol Serum

Detox Mask

One last favorite I want to highlight is the Rare Earth Deep Pore Minimizing Cleansing Clay Mask. I love this to give the skin a detox cleanse once a week and this is one of my favorite masks to do just that. It helps reduce clogged pores and blackheads. I’ll use it as a spot treatment on trouble areas. Leave it on for around 10 minutes and rinse. Skin feels a lot smoother, tighter and pore size is reduced.
