Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Review

I have went through many different skin care products, but this one has definitely been a fast favorite. This is a daily exfoliant powder from Dermalogica that removes surface debris and evens skin tone. I need to use an exfoliant that will be gentle enough for my sensitive skin, but also take care of my dry skin. Find out more in my review below!

Teadora Beauty Rainforest At Dawn Nourishing Lip Balm Review

Exfoliating your skin is so important now that it is starting to get cooler. One important part of exfoliating is to not forget your lips. My lips tend to get quite dry so exfoliating them is a must a least once a day. I always make sure my lips are ready for lipstick so I exfoliate and apply a lip balm for moisture. This Teadora Lip Balm is kind of both in one which is great. Find out more below!

Pixi Beauty Nail Colour in Matte Black

For the month of October, Pixi Beauty has a new nail polish and it is a matte black that is perfect for Halloween and Fall. I only have one black nail polish and it isn't matte, so this is something different for me to try and I really liked how the polish looked. 

Pixi nail colours always apply opaque and with ease. I only needed two coats for this one, but I did need to be more precise since it is matte. If not you can definitely see the lines in the polish where I dragged the polish. Other than that, this is a great shade to have in your nail collection. 

Pixi Beauty Nail Colour in Matte Black retails for $8 and can be found online.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish in B Girl - Review

Today I have a review of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish and Top Coat. I bought this set at CVS and ended up choosing the shade B Girl. This is a newer gel type of polish from Sally Hansen where you don't need a light to set the gel. It only takes a few steps and you are done! I have used many nail gel kits at home and they have a lot of steps to achieve a gel mani, so this is something I was excited to use. Find out how my mani went below!
