Skincare Stickers? Yes.

2014-04-18 16.57.19


I’m reluctant to try out there products. I love testing varieties of new skin care products, but the idea of stickers really freaked me out. I ordered these from a Korean beauty site. After asking around, reading reviews, and a lot of thought, I decided to give them a try.


So the magical day came when the stickers arrived. All you do is apply them to any blemishes. At first, I didn’t think they were helping much, but eventually (after a week or so) I did notice a bit of a change. Maybe it’s just because these kept me from picking at my face (yeah, gross, I know). Also, they remain adhered all day or night. Another plus? They’re practically invisible. I wore them to my eyebrow appointment and the tech had no idea.


Overall, I like them. I want to give them more time to see if they actually help improve spots over time.


Have you ever tried these? Do you have a spot treatment you love?


Review: Revlon Parfumerie Polish

Revlon Parfumerie


So the other day, I stopped into Ulta and realized that I was intrigued by the idea of perfumed nail polish, despite the disgust that I felt upon its release.

I loved the light pink color. I loved the packaging. I hated the fact that you couldn’t smell the fragrance from the bottle. You have to just trust the label. Pink Pineapple (070) didn’t sound terrible, so I shelled out that $5.99 and purchased this baby.

Two coats in, and I had smooth, pale pink color. So far, so good. Then the waiting game began. Two minutes later, my nose was inundated with a sweet, super artificial but not awful pineapple scent. I thought I could get used to it until I kept smelling the polish later that day as I did trivial things like run my fingers through my hair.

Verdict? The polish quality is great. Revlon has a great line for a really affordable price. I’m still not crazy about the idea of a nail polish “scent,” but hopefully it will go away a bit. The packaging and colors sold me though, so I’ll likely buy this again.

Oh, and here’s how it looks on my oh-so-pale hand.
