LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask - Review

Face masks are great and I try to use them as much as possible. There are tons of different kinds of face masks, with the most popular being sheet face masks. This one from LANEIGE though is different. It’s a sleeping mask, meaning you apply it, sleep in it, and then wash it off in the morning. I have been using this about once of week since I got it and I’m now ready to share my thoughts. More below!

COPPERTONE CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen - Review


Sunscreen is one of the most important things you can apply to protect your skin. I'm confident enough to say that I have found a sunscreen that I actually remember to apply everyday. The Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen applies lightweight and absorbs in seconds. There are two different ones: the ClearlySheer for Sunny Days and the ClearlySheer for Beach and Pool. I tried the one for Sunny Days. It has an interesting and surprisingly refreshing scent, not something you usually find in a sunscreen. Find out more below!
