Cleansers: Overview

The concept of cleaning the skin with soap and water has existed for thousands of years ago. But for those thousands of years, the choices have always been the same. It wasn’t until the early 90’s that the choices in cleansing options multiplied. These days, there are shelves upon shelves of cleansers available for purchase … Continue reading

A Token of Appreciation with Products from Smashbox, Eve Pearl, Sephora, and More! (CLOSED)

Words cannot express how thankful I am for all of your patience and loyalty. To show my appreciation, I’m giving away a ton of products that would otherwise just be sitting on my shelf. I might as well pass on potential loves, right? *Note that some of these products have been swatched and/or used, while … Continue reading

Introduction to the Ideal Skin Care Routine Series

It’s finally here. After months (okay, years) of delays and setbacks, the Ideal Skin Care Routine Series has arrived. Well, at least the first few parts. Over the next several months (possibly a year or longer), you will witness the publication of perhaps the most accessible and centralized compilation of basic skin care information available on … Continue reading

Welcome back!

Hello everyone! I know I’ve been away for a very long time, and I apologize for that. While I’m not sure if I’m ready to come back in full force–I need to ease back into this slowly, I realize now that it was wrong of me to cut myself off from you guys. But now that … Continue reading

Happy 2nd Anniversary?

Another year… gone. For those of you wondering, yes, I am still alive. Haha. I’ve just gotten a new job about a month ago, and I’ve been rather busy. But I’ve always been busy. I guess I’ve just been in the wrong mindset to write. I don’t know what’s going on with me and/or unwilling … Continue reading

Random Life Update

As several of you know, I was recently fired from my “new” job, right before my probation period of three months was about to end. Ugh, I have no real idea why. My supervisor’s supervisor just told me that I wasn’t a good “fit” for the company, and wouldn’t go further into details. Both I … Continue reading

Updated Publishing Schedule for the Ideal Routine and the Sun Protection Pages

I’m so sorry but I’m going to have to push back the publication date of the Ideal Routine and Sun Protection pages yet again. By an entire month, once again. God, my promises mean nothing. What kind of person does this make me? And I have no excuse except to say that I underestimated how taxing my new … Continue reading

Product Review Rubric for Sunscreens

When I first wrote the Product Review Rubric for Non-Sunscreens, which I updated recently in case you want to re-read it, I pretty much assumed it would suffice as a one-size-fits-all kind of rule book. However, while reviewing sunscreens for the Sun Protection Page, I found myself evaluating them using a completely different set of … Continue reading

Everyone NEEDS to buy a 1/4 measuring teaspoon!

I know I just published the Publishing Schedule article like… less than a day ago. Oh well. Okay, completely impromptu post time! So… after writing the How Much Exactly Is 2.0 mg/cm^2—The Amount of Sunscreen Necessary to Achieve the Labeled SPF Rating? post, one of the readers suggested that I tell people to buy a 1/4 teaspoon … Continue reading
