Shu Uemura Anti/Oxi Cleansing Oil Review

Generally, I’m not a big fan of cleansing oils. I’m an exfoliator girl through and through. Sometimes, though, you need something that’s a bit different. Exfoliators are great, but not the best (or recommended) when it comes to things like taking off your makeup, and making sure you have absolutely none lingering on your skin. To be honest, I am ...

A common misconception for people with oily skin is that using a moisturizer will enhance the problem, causing skin to become greasier, and having foundation last throughout the day basically a myth. This isn’t necessarily true- constantly stripping the skin of oils by using toners and such can actually make the problem worse, as it tricks your skin into thinking ... Read More »

I like to get up ... Read More »
