Masquerade: Earthwise Beauty

Catharsis ($90 for 2.2 OZ / $50 for .95 OZ) I’m 2/3rds of the way through with this mask, and have had it for about 3-4 months. I’ll use this product multiple times a week, sometimes just once, or instead I will reach for it weeks later. The point is that throughout the time of…

African Botanics Review

Hey guys! I’ve been consistent with these products for about three months and am ready for a brand review.

Fullies: Jan-Feb 2018

Yes I’m aware there are actual words to describe repurchases, but I decided this was a cuter partner to Empties ;). If I keep repurchasing an item, this to me means more than if I choose not to. Regardless, you’ll get the reviews of the products I try out, but this is a way to…

Masquerade: African Botanics

African Botanicals ($85 FOR 60 ML / 2 OZ) With the product packaging/names, prices, consistencies, and benefits, I would expect to find African Botanics amongst the shelves of Sephora in the company of other conventional luxury brands.
