Empties: May 2021

Shop my empties! Empties are products that I liked enough to finish the whole way and that I would recommend for you to try!

If you have specific questions about products and how they will interact with your skin type, send me a message. I’m happy to help navigate! (I’m in esthetician school currently, and taking another advanced course on ingredients!)

My reviews:

Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich – love this product – super nourishing, a rich cream that’s great for evening and sometimes daytime if your skin needs a boost. Great for winter and all year!

Glossier You – Sample Size: I love this scent. It’s adaptable and smells great on many people – one of my go-to’s! Used this mini during a weekend away in Palm Springs.

Marvis Toothpaste – another mini used during my weekend away – I like the flavor on this a lot! Chic

Tan Luxe The Body – This is my favorite self tanning product for the body. I love these drops. You mix a few in with whatever moisturizer that you’re using and voila. Perfect color! I love the light/medium tone, you can use it every couple of days to keep your tan looking fresh. Highly recommend!

Highline Wellness – finished the daytime cbd + b12 gummies they’re amazing!!! I have a link if you’re interested in checking them out!

Riddle Oil Serum – loving this product, will definitely be trying out their fragrances too!

Send me a message with any questions! Thanks for following along.

Glossier Concentrated Cleanser Test & Review

Testing and reviewing the *NEW* Glossier Concentrated Cleanser.

A highly concentrated cleanser that exfoliates, clarifies, and re-energizes skin in 60 seconds.

At first look, the color reminds me of the Neutrogena face and body wash from many moons ago. So there’s that. But seriously, this is a product that does a LOT more than that old school amber-colored cleanser of the past. I’ve been using it for about 1.5 weeks and I’m enjoying it. I’m liking the gentle exfoliators and how soft it makes my skin.

Check out a Reel on Instagram that I created below…

Spring Time Vibes

I’m seriously looking forward to spring weather and spring vibes after this week! It’s finally (slowly) warming up into the high 40’s / low 50’s in New York and I am grateful as anything for that slight increase in weather and sunshine. Makes such a difference in my mental health and overall happiness!

I’ve been doing a little shopping lately (always)… but I’m sharing some of my favorite pics below. The carousel of photos is shop-able!

Last year I purchased a pair of white linen pants from Target very early in the season, around this time (February or March) and I wore the hell out of them!! Also received endless compliments and people were wanting to shop them. I found what I consider the most similar pair for 2021 that Target has (linked above)! I would buy these ASAP if you’re interested because they will sell out. All of the good Target items do.

Hunza G Swimsuit – I have these linked on my LikeToKnow.It page. There is a lot of hype around these swimsuits. I have a 2 piece that I got last year via a collab with Koibird and I really loved the texture, style and fit (the fabric is scrunched) and super comfortable. I’m looking forward to trying a new bright color for summer!

Freck – I’ve been seeing this product for awhile and I’m very excited to try it out on myself. I love freckles – I have some freckles – BUT I’m really trying to make it a point to keep my face out of the sun more then ever this summer. And always. I’m becoming more of an SPF goddess than I previously was. So applying my own faux freckles will be the vibe this summer. I’ll post photos on Instagram once I get this and try it out.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and week ahead! Spring starts tomorrow! <3

Gifting Glossier This Holiday

Gifting Glossier is such a great move! It’s wrapped up perfectly and anyone you’re shopping for would love to receive it! I’m telling you – sisters, best friends, wives, moms, cousins, daughters, you get it…

I gifted myself… 😉 the limited edition gold kit – including Gold Lip Gloss & Gold G Charm necklace.

WHAT IT IS: 

Two touches of bright, shiny holiday spirit—a shimmering G Charm necklace and tinsel-like Gold Lip Gloss. Only here for the season!

WHY IT’S SPECIAL:

  • Our Glossier G logo at its shiniest! The holiday-exclusive G Charm necklace is plated with 14-karat gold, and makes the perfect trimming for your holiday look (what a good segue to the G-Pal Sweatshirt…)
  • Our signature lip gloss, but in a very festive, limited edition shade—we took the original cushiony, clear base and filled it to the brim with reflective gold shimmer
  • The kit comes wrapped in a gold-embossed (there’s a theme here), collectible, keepable box.

If you have any questions about Glossier gifting, or Glossier products in general, please reach out to me. I’m a Glossier rep, I have used every product ever and I have a discount code for you. Also, being that I’m a rep, and being transparent – I earn a small commission based off of any purchases that you make through my shop-able code. A win-win for all!

My Glossier link… no code necessary! Discount comes off at the end (though the Gold Kit is excluded from Holiday discounts).

Some other Glossier faves:
Cloud Paint – Dusk
Milky Jelly Cleanser
Boy Brow
Future Dew
Priming Moisturizer Rich
